    So this is not a suggestion for adding EoF posts to the real post counter, but having a counter for EoF post separately (only seen when browsing the edge of the forum). Alternatively name it "Shitpost-Counter"

    That would just encourage shitposting.
    Even tho it's the EoF, it will bring the quality down and likely leak out to the normal forums.

    Back in the IPB days, there was a counter on where you where active the most, some had 9k posts in the EoF.

    Between insane and insecure
    I suggested something like this many years ago. It sounds like an ok idea, but would have to invest a lot of time into programming something like that, just for a section that's not made to be serious.
    Not to mention would open the door to doing the same for Blogs, Asks, Intros, ect. Which would just make you wonder why they don't count towards regular posts? Which to answer that question, is because it's to encourage users to be active in the main site and not in the side sections of the site.
    Not to mention adding a feature like that would encourage more shitposting.

    Is that because you are Bortz or because you are a mod?
