Default Suggestion: Posts don't count in Social Lounge.

Too many people, including myself have little chit chats in the social lounge all the time. I hate how it can get your post count up. Wouldn't it be much better if all of our peoples posts shown in their post count were technical ones? Just a suggestion but its one I think should really happen.

post counts are sort of a way of showing how much experience you have, and post counts are awesome, they should all count.

Agreed...

post counts shouldn't matter, I think that the reputation of members should be based on reputation points alone, and those reputation points should only be able to be awarded in the tech sections, and only by either the person who asked the question, or in the event that a question asker dispears without awarding points, a moderator should be able to award the points on the members behalf,

some thing like experts-exchange (if anyone knows that site).

the post count/member status based on post count only leads to pointless spam threads.

Same here, the general computer hardware and software is becoming more and more like soemthing that resembles a hardware shop ... seeing as though i've never built a computer means that i can not participate as much, i'm ok with computer software it's just that computer hardware i am not very familiar with

Can you try to use some proper spelling next time? Is it really hard to spell "because" instead of "COZ". Also, you making fun of gamer nerds, that's really original.
