Post Count

I dont know about you guys, but it annoys me when people post random crap in the Lounge just to get 50 posts so they can sell something. I think it would mean more if those 50 posts were in threads that benefited the community, such as helping with wheel fitment in Wheels/Tires, or discussing how to set up a subwoofer in Electronics, etc.

Because of this (and other, less annoying, reasons), I dont think Lounge posts should count towards ones post count.

Re: Post Count

Those types of members not only use the lounge but other sections of the forum. While they think they're being clever, they're not. We catch on quickly and action is taken if needed.

Re: Post Count

There are also time requirements that need to be met to sell on the forums too.

Buying anything from someone you don't know is a risk and it should be treated as such.

I wouldn't buy from a noob anyways...

Correct. We have added many members to the elite "Restricted Seller" group as a result.

Re: Post Count

Yeah, I hear you guys, but I think that would be a great deterrent.


Its not just the people that make a rush to 50 that bother me either.  The "games" threads dont count towards post count because its an easy way to rack up posts, but then why does the rest of the lounge count?  There are plenty of people that hardly contribute to the regular forum anymore and simply come here for the Lounge.  It just seems like having random posts count towards post count is unnecessary.


EDIT: Restricted sellers group, eh? Thats pretty funny.. any other "elite" groups you got goin on behind the scenes? lol.

Re: Post Count

How about... remove post counts from Lounge like all other forums do?? Oh yeah, everyone on the top 10 lists will no longer stay on that list.

If you look around closely enough you will see some users in that group.

Re: Post Count

Yeah John, you're everywhere, haha.

The two post whoring sections (as I see it) are the Lounge and Multimedia. I really dont think you should keep count of posts in either of those sections. I'll probably get flamed for saying that, but I dont care.
