Before the last big forum change, it was the case for some time, that only supporting members got post counts displayed by every post and this seemed to work well. As before this, I remember there were many useless threads about who had the biggest post count etc. Well I noticed that since the change and restoration of post counts for all, we have started to get a few more useless threads where it's obvious that people are only trying to increase their post count and there are now even threads which are only about postcounts! So maybe it's time to go back to how it was and only have postcounts by supporters' names - this acts as an incentive to support and also stops "newbies" becoming obsessed with post count and posting as much as they can in a short space of time - just to "catch up"!! I think it's a win-win!!
