I don't care whose idea it was to do away with or to keep the post counts - my input into the matter would be something like this:
Post counts are unimportant to me - but - I like to see the really low counts (especially 1) - so that everyone has a chance to welcome the "newbie" when we provide the answer to the "newbie's" question.
I am only speaking for myself - but if I do not recognize the name , I probably would not go to the post count, nor the members page to see if they are a "newbie" - thus I would not include a "welcome"
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion - that is mine- take it as such!
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
