No post count/Disabling post count on a particular forum

Post by Waddle50008 on July 16th 2007, 4:00 pm

First topic message reminder :

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.

I voted for yes because I have a forum games section on my site and I would rather that the posts from there do not count as it isn't really anything important or note worthy. I've seen many other forums with this option and forumotion is one of the best - it just seems to be a shame that there isn't an option.

I vote yes. For certain game forums someone may post 5 times, and so they just don't post all the time there just to raise their post count, this would be nice.

Not only is it possible, it actually exists right now in the phpBB software on which Forumotion's software is based. That is, Forumotion doesn't actually have to "build" this feature. The Forumotion software is built on the phpBB code base, which is currently at version 3.0.11. The ability to disable post counts already exists, and has existed since phpBB version 3.0. So, there's nothing to "build"; the feature is already there. The reason we don't have it is because Forumotion hasn't implemented it in the administrator control panel.

The original post in this poll was posted in July, 2007. We're approaching six years since this feature has been requested. By way of summary, the poll and the posts in this thread demonstrate two things:

  1. The option to disable post counts is overwhelmingly supported by the vast majority of forumotion users for use in their own forums.
  2. Because the requested feature is an option that would be off by default, it would not affect any user who doesn't like the idea, and wants every post on his/her forum to be counted. Such users would simply not use the option. For them, nothing would change relative to the way post counts currently work.
As I've pointed out earlier in this thread, this really shouldn't have been a "Yes" or "No" poll in the first place, because it proposes an option that will be off by default, and that no one will be required to use (meaning, all posts will automatically count, just as they do now, unless you turn on the option to disable the post count for any specific forum). Alas, a Yes or No poll is the only kind of poll allowed by Forumotion rules. But the "No" votes are irrelevant. I have yet to see any post by a "No" voter that explains how the proposed feature harms them in any way. So far, all of the explanations demonstrate that they don't understand what "option, off by default" means.

Nevertheless, I'm still trying to understand why anyone could vote "No" on this proposal, and I'm open to any rational explanation. Maybe I'm missing something. If so, I invite any "No" voter to explain how an option that you don't have to use can possibly be a disadvantage to you.

Don't sweat friend. I voted Yes because it will be most useful to have. People who vote No have reasons which, unless they explain their logic, means nothing. When its right, its right. If its wrong, prove it. They have been unable to prove it wrong. Because of their unwillingness to prove it wrong, I am incline to think that they want to post [spam] at will without end. Thumb down

Post by Bazinga! on March 6th 2013, 4:51 pm

I like the idea of being able to disable people's post count. I wish I had this feature on my forum. There are some discussions I have left off my forum because I don't have the ability to disable post count.

Plus, if you have a member who's only purpose it to increase their post count then this feature would fix that.

I vote 'yes'.

Who cares...A post is a post. What's the big deal


Post is NOT A POST.

Me and my Moderators on my forum....we have particular forum for agreements and benefits of the forum.

Chating between us.
I don't want those posts to count. Only posts on regular forums to be counted.

Understand???

I vote that it is just open to certain sections. Like if you wanted to make a "Spam Paradise" then when you are setting it up you have a bubble set that states "Allow posts to add to Post Count?" or something to that effect.

Yes. I think it is a brilliant idea. Have thought of it many times in the past just never thought to check if there was a suggestion for it. Love the idea. ^-^

"Has this been implemented yet?"

apparently not... as polls are still open.

Excellent Idea for flooding or other types of useless sections which some people extensively use for blowing up posts scores in several RPG forums, or the like.

NB: That will be good if the french do likewise with their forums.

any updates on this ?

Their loss, our gain !

How many votes does it take for it to get implemented?

Question was raised many times, but it seems it is the French board staff who decides.

it's already 11 days 1 month and 4 years, and the suggestion still exist till now..

11 days is as breeze, sometimes, polls for longer are still resting as do old furniture in a dusty old attic room, or files in an archiving unit. But we do need to credit forumotion for one thing, inspiter of all this, the service is still attractive for us end-users, right?

This, to me, would be handy for forums that have off-topic spammy game type threads where users would post to beef up their post count.

This has been done in Nation states where their Forum 7 sub-forum does not count posts to ensure that the users post counts are not based on spam from silly games and "what's your favorite meal threads".

It's been 8 years, and still nothing. Many other forum hosters have this. I don't see why we don't have it.

Certainly looking at the almost 90% that want it... I like the suggestion too.
We got a forum that attracts new players for a game looking for info and help. They often look at the post number as if someone would be more knowledgable with a high count. Not so much if its a pure forum games player lol
