I just came up with a great idea. If we are going to reset the "Most Members Online" list, then why not recount total forum posts and members' post counts?

This will give you an exact number of posts you have made contributing to the forums.

Also, I'll deactivate post counts in the member's trash can. That way, it'll be even more accurate with your contributions.

Awesome idea?

Hmm...lots of views already, but no replies. Guess it's not a popular decision.

Just figured it would be appropriate, if the members online list is really important. I don't want that to be infested with robots, just as we shouldn't want our post counts stockpiled with deleted posts.

I don't care if this happens of not. But it's obviously sarcasm... so, okay - whatever you guys want to do with your website is fine with me.

You don't care?
I really don't see what the big deal with this is.

It's not sarcasm. I went looking through the deleted posts, and we have 11,768 of them.

I don't think people should be obsessed with their forum stats. Not counting trash posts isn't a bad idea at all. And if someone does care it's because they think it will hurt their king of "spam" status.
One thing some members have to understand is that members can give suggestions, but staff tells you how things have to be, not the other way around.

Couldn't reply cuz I was asleep lol.

If you mean resetting the posts to 0 or anything then no I disagree, but if you mean don't count deleted posts then I wholeheartedly agree with you. On my other forums when a post is deleted is is removed from your post count, I thought it was like this here until someone let me know it wasn't.

I don't think posts from locked threads (that are moved to trash or whatever) should not count, but deleted posts should not count towards your post count.

Oh yea, we should stop counting posts from the random (aka SPAM) thread... lol... that will kill many members' post counts.

We can't control post count incrementing through individual topics, only forums.

If we turn off post count in the Off-Topic, we lose a majority of our posts. Shouldn't be that way, but it is.

25% of our posts, to be exact.

Yea that's what I thought.

Can you turn off post counts in sub-forums?

I was thinking maybe we should turn off post count for all threads in the garbage pit, but there's a lot of worthwhile stuff that's just been locked that goes in there, so we can have a sub-forum in there for the utter garbage where post counts are deleted.

Like if you lock up a thread that's had 300 replies and was locked finally for flaming and put in the garbage pit, the posts made in there would still count, but when you move the Random thread to the "super ew garbage pit" (sub-forum to the garbage pit), all posts from that would be deleted from your count.

Does that make sense? Just brainstorming cuz I don't like blatant spamming.

There really isn't that much that's important in there. I would rather not have a garbage pit at all, honestly. It's just a place to go in and see all of the duplicated topics and member problems, 30 per page. Don't see a need for it.

I guess just make it so everything in that forum doesn't count towards your post count then. Every locked thread goes there right? Fair enough.

When you move a thread there, if post count is off in that forum, then you would lose those posts right? Sounds fair enough to me, don't know what everyone else thinks. If a thread is useless spam then the posts in it shouldn't count.

Take away the post counts feature then. I do not understand why ppl are so obsessed with stats here. We come here to enjoy being with a Laker family on and off season. Obviously during the season, everyone will throw in comments in gameday or any other topic.

IMO, Gameday should have already been postcount-non-incremental from the get go. At least that's one section that I think should be.

Otherwise, I just come in to read nba/lakers-related news and see what's up.

Sounds great, and make no post counts for the off topic/random thread.

My suggestion is disable the post count. because some members post too much spam just to raise their post count.

I don't get why there's people on the site who act like this, I like seeing stats and you just say I'm "obsessed" with them.
