I see no point why the post count should be displayed under your name. Some of you may think: OMG Its respect and now im pro cuz i got like 1000 posts!!.

Wrong

Respect isn't earned by your amount of post, respect is earned when you do something good and people can rely on you (or whatever it's called)

The post count is nothing but a spam creator. Keep the Groups you get when you reach a amount of posts, keep the post count in your profile, i don't care, but please remove the post count under your name. It helps.

People are spamming all over the place to get more posts. And YOU guys who have stayed here for a while does it too.

Bye

Lol, all forums show post count. While I don't care if they show it or not, people don't really spam that much. If they did, they'd be warned until they can't post/are banned. There may be some er... posts, but people'll do that anyways.

I usually press the Report button on spamposts and most of them are dealt with.

I have a hard time believing that the Free NX site-spammers and such are out to get status on the forums mush1n.gif

Honestly, the situtation isnt bad enough to have to remove postcount. We're handling it pretty well, atleast I think so.

I think you should make the Free NX Sites forum postable, but needs mod approval, since that's where the "FREE NX" + referral comes in.

I agree. I don't see why people work so hard at spamming just to be put into a group. Do they think it makes them "cool" or something?

I've known a couple of people who make near worthless posts to either gain Official Member status and thus have access to that forum, or to use the arcade. I suppose those wouldn't change much of anything even if post count didn't show...

Regardless of the way people raise it, I don't think I know a single forum that doesn't show post count. It's fine the way it is.

Post count helps you determine the credibility of someone when they post.

We've been fine for the last three years.
