Thread: Post Whoreing

  1. #1

    Default Post Whoreing

    Hey, I noticed that in the admin panel you can make a forums posts not count (numerically). This is the same way as NASIOC, the subaru forum works. OT posts do not increase members post counts.

    What do you think? Should we implement this policy?

    We can still keep the rule of docking post counts for blatent post whoring.

    I really like the idea of having OT posts not count. In the grand scheme of things, a post count should indicate the amout of knowledge you have, and that can't be with OT posts counting.

    I don't think we'll have much to worry about with post whoring here though, at least not right away.

    To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.

    I am with Jeff and Dave. I don't think OT posts should count. Hummm, can we have it count the posts for each forum? What I am trying to say is.... If I post 3 topics in NA and 15 in FI. Each time you post in the respective forum, your post count can go up in that forum only. If you go this route, we will be able to let people whore it up in OT and not count for the rest of the board.

    They should count in every forum... A post count should be kept for each forum. So if I have 1000 5th gen posts and I make 1 post in 1st gen, when viewing the 1st gen forum it will say I have 1 post but if I switch to the 5th gen forum it will say I have a 1000 posts. This is what I am meaning about post count for each respective forum. Am I asking something to hard? I really don't know.

    I don't think that is possible. It just gives you the option per forum to let them count or not. You cant break it down.

    Nah, General Automotive Discussion should have post count enabled. There will be no BS going on there, just general discussion about cars - some of which may be quite informative. Any threads containing BS will be moved to OT or locked.

    Rob, I just thought that we would keep ot tame that way, but I am open to it either way. Take your pick. I thought we had a concensus already, that is why I asked dave to turn it off.
