I can see the benefit from a community point of view, some sort of recognition for member posting activity (although I agree with you oslo that this is reflected to a certain extent in the rank. Lets here what other members think.

As far as I am concerned, there are no real benefits in a post counter. It takes some of the attention away form what really matters; what you actually write.
I think recognition should be based on what you write. Not how many posts you have. This does, in some cases result in replys like: LOL or OMG or other useless replies.

little waves wrote:And as far as people posting stupid things like "OMG" or "LOL" as a post to get their count up, this may be a problem on some forums, but I have really never seen that on here. Granted I have a fairly low count myself, so maybe I haven't been here long enough to see it, but all the posts I see on here seem to be legitimate posts.
little waves wrote:someone also mentioned something about only seeing the threads that you have replied to...i dont like that idea because some people (like me) like to read the threads, but don't necesarily have a comment to add to the conversation.
little waves wrote:I tend to like the way things are set up now. I like how if there are new post (yours or someone else's) in a thread, it shows up a different color so you know which one's have changed since your last visit. Only thing I might make a change to is combining some of the areas such as longborders only and shortboarders only. Sometimes its a lot to keep track of having so many different rooms - but even that suggestion is miniscule, it doesn't even matter really.

The thing is, you could see if there are new posts, and if you have a post in the discussion\ chat going on. This makes it much easier to find the threads that you have been a part of.
You obviously haven't read too many threads, no.

little waves wrote:Doesn't this forum do that? When you log in, if a thread has new posts, a little orange mark shows up next to it.

My guess is that you know as little about me as you do about vBulletin, so leave it.
regardless if you have a post in there or not.
