I would not be bothered about losing post count from the social lounge, but altogether, silly idea IMO.

I think we should at least remove them from the Social Lounge. Heck, I've been here for two years and I haven't hit 1,000 yet.

Default Re: Post Counts

The problem with getting rid of post counts in the social lounge is that some times the posts are really insightful or helpful for members that have problems outside of computers. Post count should stay, it's easier for newcomers to trust the opinions of people when they can see the post counts, I think and it also gives credit to the people who spend alot of time on these forums helping out people when they need it. Reputation isn't accurate in guaging how helpful someone is, some people can have really helpful posts, but it doesn't necessarily mean they'll get rep'd, it helps, but it can't be used to judge a member. The fact that the highest rep someone on this forum so far is three bars doesn't help either.

I think it's fine as it is, nothing really needs to be changed.

I have always thought that the post count should be removed from the social lounge......

Plus, if you help new members you just get a grey rep anyway.
