    Default This forum needs a Forum Game section...

    ...with post count disabled. Some posters, like me, Angry Reaper and Necror get unusually high post counts by posting in random forum games like the Word Game and the You're Banned thread, or even worse, the SpamALot thread. This shouldn't happen in my opinion, and all other forums I see have such a section with post count disabled. It's retarded if I could get hundreds of posts just by spamming in the SpamALot thread.

    Anyone else agree?

    I agree with you that it makes sese to have a forum games section but i think it would only be fair that we can all the keep the post count we have if the threads get moved into the new section.
    I live in England but that dosen't mean im posh, also i have read the entirity of the rpg threads, i was a lurker. now im ready to RUMBLE!
    also sometimes, my keyboard fails to work properly and that causes really bad typos.

    I agree with the whole disable post count , that way you can have a great time spamming, without needing to worry about people get 1,000 posts. besides, forum games shouldn't count

    I don't really see why people place so much value on post count. It is a few numbers that have no important real point.

    Post count is the only numerical value you see in the postbit of every post that rises as the poster does things (because Reputation is almost never used). While it does not have any real relevancy, it does influence other people's views on an user.

    Hmm, how odd, 2 people voted no but it shows up as 1...

    I do agree somewhat, I've never really cared about that unless in rare occasions. I mean I never really care about what the post count says unless it is of someone who often posts in those forum games like Mothrayas or Angry Reaper, I admit it has meaning but it doesn't effect my judgement much merely makes me curious how much (For AR's case considering the only other posts besides forum games are RPG and this, I think) time he spends there...

    I often wonder if people think I spam alot by my real high post count because of my earlier but now ceased activity on the forum games, maybe it is just my imagination.

    PS: Also, Mothrayas I don't blame you for this mistake as I didn't know it either but according to Word you must use "a" and not "an" on stuff like "user". I dunno why, the "s"? Or maybe because the "u" is being used like "you" (I don't remember what that was called >_<)
