Not true, depending on where you post and how active the thread is you could easily get 500 to 1000 posts in 3 months. Im sure people racked up huge posts count when Nanoha, Code Geass, any Fate series all aired. Any popular series epsc with the sub forum will get you a good post count. Doesnt matter how long youre a member.

The other reason I've made the posts on this thread that I most recently have is to counter Westlo's suggestion of scrubbing join dates. I don't want a depersonalized, anti-information AS.
Personally I dont see that happening and I have no problem with keeping join dates on. We all still can have our own avys/sigs (as long as they meet the rules), we all have our own opinions so I dont think AS will be depersonalized anytime soon

Ok, fair enough. I'm not going to nitpick with you over post counts then.

Quick reply, I never said 1000 was high, I only said someone could rack up that amount of posts in a short period of time.

And you'll get people that'll get into a race to drive their post count up to be seen as active well established members by making quick one line post,I've seen it happen plenty of times at forums I've been part of.

Seriously,the fact post counts aren't displayed below the avatar was one the things that made a good first impression when I first visited the forum.

I honestly never saw that, at least not to a noticeable degree, on the forums I am on which have public post counts. So our experiences are different there.

Also, you don't see the irony in decrying quick one-line posts while making a quick 1/2-line post yourself? How do you know these short posts don't just reflect a particular poster's style?

I think we're basically going around in circles now, so I think I'm going to put a close to this for now.

Basically, as many have probably realized, we tend to default to the status quo for most things unless there's a really strong reason to change, and for both the main proposal and the subsequent proposal, I'm not sure that there's any consensus for change.

a) Regarding post counts, for now they won't be visible next to each post, but you can still see it by clicking on the person's nickname and clicking on the "Statistics" tab.

b) Regarding Join Date, for now it'll remain visible next to each post, as it has been all along.

Those could possibly be changed later, but for now we'll keep things the way they are. If there's a reason to re-open this thread, please feel free to contact any of the staff.
