What the ****?

So uh, why did post counts go away? Is there a reason for it...? I personally don't see one, you need to be able to see on a forum who has more posts so you know it's not some forum nub yankin your chain. Who decided on this? :/

Im glad there gone. we already know who has been here longer than others, and post shouldent matter. when we registered is still there and that should show us enough. And this should get rid of some spamming seeing as though they do it for the count.

but i could swing either way

I'm not really following your guy's reasoning. If their post count really matters to you, there is nothing stopping you from checking their profile. It says it there. I think it is an excellent thing to change. Now everyone isn't competing to get a higher post count, so post content really does matter now. Take a look at HP_Lovecraft-he is one of the most informative posters I think out of ANY forum I go to. He doesn't have as many posts as some of the others who joined when he did, but I would rather read one of his posts than 100 of other people's posts.

I never judged people by their post count, but if I've never heard of them I'll look at. I just like it being there. This is NOT PBN. Stop trying to make it like PBN.

i would like the post count back, i just like being able to look at it. I personally dont post for the count, but i still like being able to see it. Also, higher posts makes me feel more comfortable when buying something from someone honestly. Id just rather have it be there, not having the post count is one of the big things i dont like about PBnation either...

I liked post counts for many reasons

A - You knew who had posted more and was therefore active
B - I would feel comfortable buying something from someone with 1,000+ posts than someone who just joined
C - If I don't recognize the person, bam check post count
D - You're making PbF look like PbN, if I wanted PbN style forums, I'd ****ing go to PbN for good.

Me and cobra decided to take it away. All you guys would do is spam to get it up. Someone with 5000 posts could be less knowledgeable about somoene with 2 posts. That is why its gone.
