Since our previous community manager brought to light the stress the forums are under there is a simple fix.

Hide post count and the ranking picture next to it.


The post content should be indicative of its reliability, otherwise we have forum mods to sort that out. Ranking just causes spam, it's another highscores, we see it all over the world.

I think this is a good suggestion. I have noticed some trollish behaviour thta is often encouraged by people trying to achieve a high post count.

It is very rarely that post count shows the positive impact somebody has made on forums.

Never cared for post count, so I would be all for removing it.

However, at this point, it wouldn't make a difference I don't think. People that spam are actually very few these days. That's because the forums are practically dead, mind you.

Certain people still keep posting painfully stupid, pointless and annoying threads just for the sake of posting something.

trolls will troll, i dont think people cared about post count?


I remember someone specific posting on my forum thread and stating how they were intentionally going off-topic to attempt to get my thread locked. I think people admitting to this should result in forum mutes but it didn't. Trolls will troll when this type of activity is accepted without punishment.

Regardless, there are a few very well knwon faces that care about post count.
