Disable Post Count?

Hey yo,

Just wanted to see if it would be possible to disable post count in what hopefully would be an effort to reduce spam posts. I am seeing a lot of this on the forums, and it is a bit annoying to ready through announcment threads from staff or vendors that have multiple posts of just a single smiley followed by the user's bloated signature.

I also noticed a member who has some 38,000+ posts. I have yet to see a post by this member with any real substance or purpose. All of the posts are less than a sentence and are clearly aimed at boosting this post count number. Posts of "good luck" in every sale thread, or "looks nice" in every appearance thread add a significant amount of clutter.

Anyways, it is just a thought. It can often be very difficult to find good information here when it takes a considerable amount of time to search through nonsense.

You guys are new and just don't understand the "post count" thing.

good luck.






Just kidding. Isn't inflating your post count kind of like sticking a sock down your pants or stuffing your bra? Everyone can see you contribute nothing and eventually you will be naked and the truth comes out.

He is in the game threads and I see nothing wrong with him or those threads. It's not hard to navigate this site, and those threads don't make it any more difficult. You are making a mountain out a a mole hill. It's very easy to ignore threads you don't want to go in. I do it all the time. Just because someone does not post to your approval does not make it wrong.

If you beat his post count, you get to pick any one of the Camaros in his driveway

It's fun buddy. Move along, nothing to see here. You are wasting time that you could be using for reading real information.

My thoughts from the other thread:

It seems like the moderations is incredibly quick to delete/remove posts that have the slighest bit of negative opinion or sarcasm, yet they constantly let productive threads get derailed - as long as they stay "positive and happy".

I am getting very frusturated by good topics getting completely derailed just because someone has a lame/trying-to-be-cute (sorry, but it's true) joke or a bunch of smiley-spam.

Also, found this from the staff:

I, and I'll assume the other Mods., and Admins., as well, are tired of spending way too much time editing posts, checking for language, etc.! Instead of posting useful new information, engaging in knowledgeable and informative discussions, our time is spent policing.

PLEASE do not get me wrong! That IS the responsibility of being a Mod./Admin., and I welcome the responsibility. But the language, lack of respect, hostility, and lack of maturity by some, is getting way out of hand.

This site, as stated earlier, is a great site, one I take much pride in. You all should as well.

PLEASE! Show that pride by being respectful, using the proper language, etc.!

I am simply making a suggestion and an observation. You are the ones changing the subject and derailing with your "clever" .gif images.
