    I notice how their is a total move counter beside player's names in the forums, how hard would, it be to have a total post count as well so you could figure out who are the regular posters on the board.... just an idea, so many other sites have this I don't see why we shouldn't as well.

    We had that at one time. The hard part was getting rid of it.

    You really don't want that feature back. It becomes a mindless competition to see who can run up the biggest number, with a total disregard for the quality of a post.

    Take a good look at some of the really ignorant posts that are here now, then imagine it being ten times worse.

    You could implement a forum ban for spammers if that's what you want to call them but I see where your coming from

    I held that top spot too for a time...and then when people saw they could spam and spam and spam...it really was bad.

    All for what? Being the top poster never really carried any weight I don't think.

    Those were the days...vaknso and rhymester battling it out for MAP...and spammers trying to out post each other.

    I do miss vaknso though.

    You may have made many posts, but you were never the top poster.

    I remember the good old day... November last year... That's about when it all started going downhill, just after you joined, right?
