After reading Lesters rant, I have come to the same conclusion as everyone else. The reason for the massive increase in banal posts is all down to folk trying to increase their post count.
I don't know about anyone else but I couldn't gine a tinkers cuss how many posts I have made since joining Queenzone and it wouldn't bother me in the slightest if they disappeared altogether.
Does anyone else feel that protective of their post count and if not, is there any way Richard or Barbera could get rid of them?
I'm not making demands or anything. It's just something to consider.

Discuss.

"is there any way Richard or Barbera could get rid of them?"

I was wondering that myself a long time ago. Lately, I have been very cautious of my "ridiculous" posts trying not to be too bad. The reason why my posts were horrible was cos I was using them as a conversation.. it's not entirely cos they were "thoughtless." But anyhow, I would love to see the post count go.

Couldnt agree with you more Fatty. And while we are at it, why dont they do away with all that "marquee" scrolling text shit as well?

I don't think it has anything to do with post counts...just private conversations on a public board I assume. People will still post massive amounts of things without the post counter just to keep things moving on the board; I try to keep things moving as well. Also, people like to have their opinions heard.

I think the vast majority of us don't really care whether or not we have a post count...I see nothing wrong with abolishing them, certainly.

Ja ne!

I like to look at my post number, but it wouldn't matter if they were taken off.

Yes, I agree with getting rid of the post count, as it does seem to be the main bone of contention around here, at the moment.

I never even look at my post count. I couldn't care less if they got rid of it.

I would be slightly disappointed if my post count disappeared, but I would easily get over it. I see no harm with removing post counts, but please do not replace with sign up date.

I'm not that fussed - maybe I would be a little bummed if it disappeared but like Rip Van Winkle said, I'd get over it. Having said that, I'd like to become a Deity before my birthday (end of Jan) just because...actually I don't know why!
Really though, people *cough* Hem *cough* fail to realise that the post count means sod all here.
