Well neither is forum games, and if they shouldnt count, neither should anything that isnt Spore related, because there is the chance to spam in each forum which is off-topic (get where Im going?), so maybe we should do what was suggessted before and take away all post counts,  and make it hidden

This isn't a Spore forum, despite appearances.

Just wondering, but, what harm is there in hiding the post count? Sure, it might not actually work, but it's certainly not going to encourage anyone to spam.

(I know this didn't have anything to do with the last few posts.
Vivec, you're the best forum member ever.

You said that we should not include anything outside the Spore sections because it's "offtopic":

If forum Games counts are removed then so should everything else that isnt to do with Spore

Could we have different stars for different forums?
We pick which forum we want to count towards our "rank" and still have our total underneath. Is that workable?

Haha, I equalized the votes and made a draw!
Reason why I voted "make the posts count"?
Why, because probably one whole fifth of my posts are forum game posts  ;D

Posts are posts. Plus I don't think I can remove the game posts from your overall totals...

Oh wait, I just checked. I can remove those posts from your total. Never mind.

If it is possible to flip off a forum from adding to your posts, then the posts in that forum will be deducted from the total posts.

Its the same thing that happened when VFX Watch deleted the Kill People thread, I lost 200 posts.

This is precisely why we want to get rid of the count.

Yeah but I am going to bring up the RP argument again because we put a lot of time and thought into our posts and they should count.
