    Unless I've missed something, the Total Cumulative Posts counter only includes the posts that actually add to the post count (i.e. no posts from EoF, Blogs, Introductions etc. are included in the counter).


    Would it be possible to have a separate counter that counts every single post that a user has made? Hopefully viewable on the portal and the old-style page?

    Why don't you just stop spamming and make legitimate posts outside of the EoF?

    There *IS* a way to see all posts, and posts per section and other info like that, but i don't remember how or where... this question comes up once every year and a half or so [​IMG]

    Someone can show you the way, just not me [​IMG]

    how about a trash can icon, that indicates how much you post in EOF?

    shiny new trashcan: 1-99 posts in EOF

    trash can with some markings and half-on lid: 100-499 posts in EOF

    over 500 posts in the eof: beaten up overflowing trash can with missing lid and flies.

    If post counts from eof are being counted separately, they may as well count them normally. Personally I think it's fine the way it is now.

    At the end of every day, take the number of posts you've made in the EOF, change your custom title to "Useless Posts:", then place the number after it.

    It's some work, I'll admit, but you just want to show off how many spam posts you make.


    Seriously, there is no need for a counter for "everything", if the admins wanted it that way they would just have made posts count in those sections in the first place.

    Meh, then almost everyone who played the Banning game pretty much would have a beaten up trashcan. [​IMG]

    Agreed.
    I currently have 1697 posts in the trash can now, and 911 of them come from the banning game.

    I say no, spamming is allowed in the EoF so any fucker can spam to increase post count.


    Also my post count would be 6 times higher, which can't be good.

    I don't care if anyone else sees the number, I just want to know for myself. It wouldn't even have to be shown on the sidebar for every post, only for the single user, like the way the warn level isn't displayed.


    @Hadrian: I understand if you don't want it implemented, but I still thought it was worth asking.

    The section you're most active in is NDS - Games with 2100 posts, so now way your post count would be six times higher. [​IMG]
