No post count/Disabling post count on a particular forum

Post by Waddle50008 on July 16th 2007, 3:00 pm

I suggest their Be a button in options that you can choose that will disable the post count for users so that when a users posts something, their "Posts:" will not rise.

Personally,I like the post count showing,as you know if the user is active enough in the forum.

No harm if it is an option though

Yes, but my users can gain cerain ranks with certain amount of posts, and they are gaining those ranks from post in a "Posting Games" section, and i want that to be their for fun, but for no further benefit of the users

I vote no. I like having the post count. But what exactly do you mean?? Do disable the post count on certain forums? © phpbb has that. That would be nice on our forums too.

I think it is a good idea, you can then block the post count for "rank junkies" who post a lot of junk just to get a higher rank. In another forum I'm on, the admin did that to some rankposters and they never showed up again lol
And I also think it should be possible to turn off the post count in certain fores, but that's already filed under "probable suggstions" Smile

^no, he wants to be able to turn off a certain USER'S post counter Wink

I was going to make that suggestion today. I voted yes because I do not want to encourage spammers.

Also setting post counts in certain forms and disable it in other forums is a nice idea.

I agree.. being able to set certain forums to not count posts, would be great. It would help curb the spamming, and encourage them to post more responsibly by posting in the threads that do count posts. Also, mixed with ranks, it sets people into a more serious mode and thereby makes the ranks for valuable to the members that actually deserve them.

So I vote YES to being able to set post counts in some forums, while disabling them in others.

They not talking disable posts for forum , they are talking about Posts Count button.

I suggest their Be a button in options that you can choose that will
disable the post count
for users so that when a users posts something,
their "Posts:" will not rise.

Not for forum. If you have that button , is as the same thing as deleting posts. If they are spamming , and you click on the button , the posts will not be counted right? But what User write is still there , so it will trash your forum if you don't delete it. So is it the same as Deleting posts.

Actually, if you would read 8 posts up, Waddle wrote:

"NO, I MEANT CERTAIN forums POST COUNT. BUT CERTAIN USERS POST COUNT WOULD BE NICE, BUT THERES ALREAD A WAY TO RESET THEIR POST COUNT TO ZERO..."

So the poll is for forums, not a specific member or all members' posts. Wink

Post by ELLA on November 26th 2007, 8:39 am

is a good idea, but is better to thick the sections where you get post count and where not
if you want a user to have the same posts, even if he sais a lot of messages, is better to warn him if he makes something wrong or simply ban him

Option to Hide or Disable Post Counts

Post by Vito on January 11th 2008, 2:57 am

First, I want to clarify that the subject line of this message precisely states the matter on which I voted "Yes" for this suggestion. I want the option to be able to hide or disable post counts. If it's possible to apply that option selectively for individual forums or users, that's fine with me, but frankly I'd be satisfied if it were just an option that I could turn off for my entire forum.

I cannot understand how anyone could possibly object to this suggestion as an option. There is nothing in the original suggestion requesting that the post counting feature be completely disabled for all users of all forums. That would be silly—I mean, obviously there are many reasons to keep track of the number of posts, and no one has suggested that the post count feature be killed entirely.

As I understand it, the original suggestion requests the ability to selectively turn off post counts. If that suggestion can be implemented—and the posts in this thread already have provided excellent reasons why it should be implemented—then there should be unanimous agreement. If you don't want to turn off post counts on your forum, then simply don't use that option. If you have the option of keeping post counts active on your own forum, this suggestion takes nothing away from you.

I suspect that all the people who have voted "No" simply do not understand that this suggestion cannot be a disadvantage to them in any way whatsoever. I can think of no rational reason why anyone would object to this suggestion.

As far as the subject of driving away users is concerned, that is an excellent observation. In fact, that's precisely why I want the option of turning off post counts. I do not want my forum to attract the kind of users who would be upset about their post counts not showing. I want forum members whose principal interest is in the substance of what they contribute to the community, not members whose principal interest is in showing how many times they can hit the "Send" button.

Correct. No one should oppose this.

That's nice, I guess. It's not really relevant to the proposal that we're voting on here, but it does emphasize the fact that under the proposed feature change you would still have the ability to use post counts!

I'm curious—did you actually think you would not have post counts under the proposed mod?

If so, it simply illustrates the point I made in an earlier post—namely, that the only people who would vote "No" on this mod are those who don't understand what has actually been proposed. There is nothing in the proposal that would interfere with those who want to show post counts. I assume, therefore, that if they cared enough to vote at all, they would have voted "Yes" if they actually understood what's being proposed.

So, that means there are actually 29 "Yes" votes! Cool!!

This option must be there for Admins and Moderators. By this we can measure other members performance.

Have you read the posts in this thread?

You say the "option" must be there. What option are you talking about? That's the problem; currently, there is no option. The software is hard-coded to report post counts all the time, with no option to turn it off. That's what the proposed mod is for—to provide the option to turn off post counts for those who don't want them to show. If you want to show post counts, this mod won't affect you. Make the mod so that displaying post counts is the default condition, and you won't have to do anything different...just leave it turned on.

Why is this so difficult to understand?
