wtf happend to post count!?

Really guys...comon...once again you are trying to change pbforum.com after the hacking...WE DONT WANT IT CHANGED!

We want it THE SAME WAY as it was before! How do you guys expect us to just forget about the hole hacking incedent (hacking or prank or avanters taking over the hole forum...which ever it is) when everywhere we go it shows MAJOR change.

IF cobra is still around...I really really wonder why he felt the need to change all this. I mean, everything was going very smoothly untill the hack...now lets go back to that smoothness...and change everything back to how it was before. We lost all the forums...no biggy, we can make more, but things like the stupid forum sub sections, totally new mods (some that are not qualified for thier position), and now no post count, really kinda upsets me.

We don't wanna be like about pbnation...we dont want a site "face lift"...we dont want all new mods...we dont want you doing make overs every night so the site is down...

We simply want the site the way it was BEFORE the hacking.

Add in the post count again, and just leave everything alone.

Yeah, post count should go back, I agree with you guys on that. Avanters will be talking with Mark tonight. But you shouldn't keep making new threads about it- there are enough already!

Yes, there are enough threads about it. And unless and until it´s changed, people are gonna start new ones...

@ b_heald

You´re not the only weird one here, I like to see my post count aswell, it makes me feel better to know that the biggest part of the posts were helpful ones.

I think we all agree we liked the post count.

It was a usefull measure of someones "newb-ness".

But that was the problem- People hated having low counts, so they spammed the forum constantly to boost the number.

In the past, we calculated that the spam was worth the count.
But in the last couple of months, the spam has gotten OUT OF CONTROL.

From the spinner to the hack, we removed it as part of the process of cleaning up the forum.

It will PROBOBLY return, but not until EVERYTHING settles down..
