    I think there should be added a new sort of BB-code to this community. BB-code that includes information that is a variable, such as your post count.

    I would like to have this...
    Code:
    [postcount /]
    ...result in this
    Code:
    507

    This function would be very handy, for if you want to say "I have more than 500 posts!". With this function you can say "I have [postcount /] posts!".
    Of course not only the post count should be added in this way, but maybe also things like your user name, custom title, your location, your latest post etc..

    What do you think?

    You really shouldn't care about postcount after 500 post, because after that there is really nothing else you can get besides medals.

    So, no I don't support this, I don't see any need for it.

    It is, but by typic [postcount /] you don't have to check your count before you post, and it changes when you post more. The message is a variable that changes.

    Because the message is variable so it stays up to date all the time. Even when the topic is really old. And this topic is not only about post count. You can do a lot more with it.

    i get what you're saying but it's not really that helpful, i don't think it would be worth coding it, as it would barely be used

    I like this idea, though I wouldn't want a post count one.. maybe something like member count or something

    alanjohn check ur pm
    if this would be implemented, there should also be more of such codes (in my opinion).
    again, it wont be used very much (maybe for threads where you brag about your postcount, but other than that i dont see any other uses for it)
