Proposed turning off of post count

Discussion in 'Site News & Suggestions' started by St Helens RLFC, Jun 22, 2006.

  1. This has been an idea for nearly a year now. On the "off topic post" thread people have been raising objections to it. And I can see why.

    On the other hand, the rep system has been implemented as a replacement for post count to be phased in slowly as a replacement.

    Please detail your thoughts on this as it's important I know. I will eventually do a poll on this, which I'll leave open for a month, which I think, on my part, is fair enough.

    This is a complex issue for both me and yourselves - I want post count off as it leads to a problems but I would be willing to compromise.

    You could leave it on, just have it in your own profile where you (and mods etc) can see it, just not every monkey out there. The wee rugby balls and your rep amount will still be an indication to the masses...

    Hide the post count. It really is pointless. I still get giddy when I climb up another notch on the top posters list... Get rid of it, for the good of the internet!!

    hmm just having the rep system may work *been thinking*

    it will make me think more of giving out rep for quality posts. or posts that make me laugh or something. thinking/hoping that if i ever have any quality posts or give something to the board then hopefully someone may give me a rep...


    then the rep will become the big E-Penis, but it will be hard to be anywhere near kaftkas E-Penis

    And don't let it.... Trust me. Just turning around is a safety hazard.

    But yeah. The thing with the rep points is that the regulars will be the ones that get them. Relatively quiet posters will only get a few rep points.

    and you could have compertistions in which you win rep points, take for example TRF fantasy rugby comp, the one that wins that could get so many rep points, or picking rugby game scores, the one with the closest score could get a set number of rep points

    Whereas at the moment they seem to just go to people who know each other...

    Just looked at your rep points, and theres a lot of reps from a lot of different people. Your rep points are evidence that it can work very well. In fact, I'm suprised I haven't repped you yet...

    the rep system can go both ways. it can be used properly and also it can be abused and mis-used. it is proabbly better than having a post count system though.

    I like to see the post count kept, it one of those stats that I want kept the most.

    Going on what Dobrien7 said in his first post is a great idea. Post count should be kept, but only viewed under the member profile page only.

    Right Everyone, I know I should of posted earlier about this, but I have looked through and agreed that the post count needs to be hidden from Topics, as people do rely on trying to boost theres... So that has now been done..

    I like to act first and think of the consquences later, so we will see how this goes down, if you still want to see the post count you can look in the members profile...

    for n00bs like myself, im only posting heaps of garbage so that i can get over 100 posts so i can use the rep system. i dont think that some of you older members realise that you have to have that amount to use it

    I agree here the post count should be kept but can only be view in the members profile and how often do you actually go into your own profile anyway so i think thats fair.

    And yes keep the wee rugby balls and the rep system they are both good ideas we just need to come up with a way it won't be abused eg can only give a rep to the same person every 14-20 days or something.

    Its been changed down to 10 posts so you should be ok, the limit was put there, when we were testing the system, and was never removed...

    So you should be ok Monoturd...

    and is there any rep point rule that i should be aware of? like you cant give 20 rep points to the same person in one minute or anything like that?

    you can only rep a person once per day. and you need valid reasons for changing the reputation of someone.
