thank you for your understanding and listening, i think it's important that the community have input in the thing that is being made specifically for them to use. I'm glad we don't live in a forum where input is completely ignored.
it's just something unnecessary which can be left out.When do we draw the line where it's unnecessary, though? There are users who do enjoy the ability to see their post count...
In the past people were shitposting and nercobumping stuff and raising by this way their post count up, complains and pointless discussions followed and everyone was just annoyed by people posting in threads without contribute good content (hi there o/).in any case i dont mind, i am going to be keeping track of my post count in my signature from this point onwards.
I don't think this is the main reason but I guess it's just something unnecessary which can be left out.
The post count is a core feature on forums in general.No.
What the fuck?It is absolutely unnecessary to have post counts in forum boards; they are not a good metric of legitimate activity nor are they a metric of qualitative posting; if anything, having them displayed promotes users to post with substantially lower quality for the sole purpose of increasing that arbitrary number.
The post count is a core feature on forums in general. I understand that its a thing in the desing of this game to do literally everything different than everywhere else, even if there is absolutely zero reasoning for it but this is just dumb.
please please, please don't.also, this is a really poor mentality: you gain recognition for having expertise at what you do by having content that is noteworthy enough to follow and/or share - if you create an exceptional guide or have legitimate insight to share with others, those are the kinds of things that you can share in your signature for others to find; if it's good enough, it'll be content that is evergreen and won't just degrade/disappear because it has aged or because you are lacking in post count >__>
i'll have to actually get good at the game for my posts to carry any weight to newer players in g&r. i've grown a lot more in relevant knowledge from reading and talking to pros than playing the game. I've basically only learned what NOT to do from playing, which is actually helpful when i give advice.
Well out of the maybe 40 forums i ever used, all of them had this.

Well out of the maybe 40 forums i ever used, all of them had this.Being used a lot doesn't make it a core feature. It's just extremely easy to implement and something that one certain kind of user is interested in - and in most cases it doesn't cause too much harm.
