LA needs its posts visible

Posts in the LA should be counted towards your visible posts. As of now, because posting in the LA doesn't increase your post count, people spam other sections such as the PH and the RGD. Mostly the PH. That's dumb. As I see it the LA should be the trash can, not PH. If you cancel visible posts in the PH, people will spam the RGD. That will suck incredibly.

Post count should just be wiped out completely.

Post counts would then be enormus and undeserving.

There are a bunch of people with normal post counts of 200 or 300, and regular post counts of over 3000. Peopl ewould then likely have 20 average posts per day.

I think post counts need to be eliminated in all GD sections except for respectable general discussions. Prehaps consider even eliminating them there, being as post counts shouldn't matter in GD sections.

This IS a Utopia related forum site anyhow, so why should posts count toward any other subject?

post count in LA would encourage more spamming...

I think taking PC away all together is an excellent idea

That's not an excuse to turn off post counts. The LA is a spam heaven, and don't try to deny it. If it incourages people to spam more, then hell, let them spam more there. At least the RGD and the PH won't be spammed.

If PC counted in LA, they would have to make stricter rules there so people dont spam there more than now. And I dont think anyone wants stricter rules in LA. But PH hsa become the place to pump your post count. Thats gotta change too.

Maybe they could have your regular post-count when you're reading messages, but when you view the actual user name you can see their -total- posts? It might not encourage THAT much more LA spamming, but it still counts for something.

does it really matter?

i mean if you want recognition for posting a lot, then La is not the place to do it, because quite frankly i don't think people in LA really give a damn how many posts somone has.

In all honesty i don't really see the point of post count, its just a way for people to show off about having more then somone else

It matters because people would spam other topics seeing that their posts in the LA are useless. I don't like that.

How is PC fun? I don't really give a damn about it, to be honest. It is, as has been said quite often, just a number.. and its one that causes spamming..

So PC is making the forums slightly worse. I say get rid of it all together.

I agree, take away the post counts and you take away the I'm better than you factor! I myself do not care how many times someone has posted, but I think quite a few people wear it like a badge.

and uh if the post count disapears whats the only other thing people can worry about? hmmmmm eh, huh, hmm the donation thingy. Noww that wouldn't be a bad thing for people to have a pissing match over right?

Such a feat already exists. When you view a person's profile, you have the option to "Search for all posts by this user", which shows their total post count.

I still fail to see why post count is so important??

Who gives a damn (I mean SERIOUSLY)??

I agree, who gives a damn. Besides if there were PC for LA posts then everyone would spam it just to get there post count higher. Isn't that the reason why the Posts didnt count in the first place for the LA?
