    Guest -- Post Count - Re-calculation

    Guest [Personalised thread title and text]

    Due to the fact that we auto cull old threads we re-calculate post counts from time to time.

    So if your post count dropped - you now know why.

    After the first 50 posts the count is quite meaningless

    is the cull a site performance reason so the DB does not get too big?

    The personalised titles are just too corny, like a large corporations using them in a bill/spam mail outs

    Yes, but with our latest server it is a bit redundant. We may change things.

    Then maybe it shouldn't be include.
    Less intimidating for newer members maybe.

    Don't like it. I think a good post count over a good period indicates good contribution to the site which I value. It's not everything of course and newer members, or those that don't post a lot can certainly contribute greatly, but I think long standing contributions to the site should be recognised.

    I've often wondered if rather than showing a post count, a different rating system might be neater like I've seen on other sites.

    It's no big deal, still love AP and all the wonderful contributors!

    I can't see why the post count should change. But then again I'm only doing this to see how many posts I have.

    EDIT....
    It's only a couple of hundred anyway...

    I'll turn the cull off for now and have a chat with the boss about needing it anymore.

    Dang, now I'm back below 50. This'll add one.

    Fair enough though. I should post more often.

    What a shame that post counts have been vandalized. They're quite pointless now and should be scrapped altogether.

    They were fairly pointless anyway. Once you got 50 posts (and full access to every part of the site) there was no accolades for getting more etc.

    Kym and I will chat about turning off the archiving of old threads etc, and thus, the recalculation of post counts will not occur again.
