Is there still a page or function somewhere to show our true (overall) postcount?

Take that as a no then.

That one still shows the same number, it doesn't adjust for the TFG forum posts.

Actually, they do count here. I talked Mak out of keeping it like that.

Yeah it's important that we recognise peoples' valuable contributions to the "post a shiny thing you saw" threads.

It was just a thankfully short lived idea based off of something done on Mak's other board.

If some short posts are relatively uncontributive to a thread, like 'looks good' , could it be a suggestion that your post should have, for example, at least 6 words int it to count?

This is essentially the spam board, with silly little games and funny posts where sometimes "looks good" is all that's required. If someone were to constantly post nothing but "looks good," "sounds interesting," or "I agree" in the other forums where content is more important, someone might say something, but a formal rule really isn't needed. The less formal rules that need to be strictly enforced, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

I agree that a good, enjoyable board has to have rules and boundaries. I also agree with Bond, you don't want to overdo it either and take away the fun. Yes, some people will post just to raise their post count, but that's not everybody. Unless it was possible to single out the ones doing it, there would be no way to crack down on it without ruining it for the rest.

I miss the old days....I had hundreds of posts under me in all areas of the board, then life happened and I haven't been able to be here like before. I think a lot of us aren't here as much as they once were. Speaking of which, I haven't seen Goober, Nathan, or Kiribell. Does anyone know what has become of them?

The first 2 left before we moved and Kiri hasn't been around for months.

I haven't seen Kiribell since that bullshit with Nerd a couple years ago.

That's a shame... I hope that they are alright. Perhaps they are just busy with real life right now and will come back.
