i think you should get rid of the post count. too many people post useless things just to raise their count. i have now decided that this is wrong and i want it to stop because there are people who are thinking of leaving for this very reason. im sorry for any posts i made to heighten my count and i think the ommision of post count would make the board more useful. thanks for listening to me if you made it down here to the bottom of my post.

Well, this issue HAS been discussed before when there was a HUGE CHANGE in posting, post count, etc. There have been some good alternative suggestions but eva2000 hasn't done anything yet.

I just think that it's a way to show the varying levels of intensity that users post.

after a while of observing the posts, i've realized that most likely, the problem isn't at all the post counter, nor ranking, nor anything of the sort.

i think the main problem is simply that alot of people don't realize the difference between a needless post and one of good meaning. just an example, but look at Dragon of Fury. that was a completely needless post that didn't need to be there, but none the less, it is. why? i doubt because s/he thought that posting two s would raise her/his post count, but rather because s/he felt like posting it, and didn't realize that it was needless, pointless, and a waste of space.

conclusion... people just need to have pointed out to them that two s aren't exactly on topic, etc... thus they are not needed. though it's all up to eva2000... if he doesn't mind those kind of posts, then leave them be.

this topic has been brought up before, and there are always going to be atleast SOME stupid posts.

I would like to see the post count dissappear for everyone also, it can be distracting and it turns animeboards into a competition...
