    Post count adjustments


    Just a quick note to say that:

    • Posts made in the Coffee Lounge will no longer count towards your post count
    • The total number of each user's existing posts in the coffee lounge have been subtracted from their post count. Accordingly, some of you may notice your post count is decreased.
    • Please do not begin posting crap in non-coffee lounge threads just to bump your post count or I will reset your post count to 0

    These changes are a result of suggestions and feedback in this thread.

    Cheers dude. I'm sure it will only benefit db growth

    I just reached 100 posts and a penguin and now it's all gone I do understand the reasoning though. It's just, just so sad...

    Makes perfect sence really Jason as this is LINUX FORUM therefore any rating of a user's contribution to the site should be based on their Linux input.

    Do you think it's worth posting a thread in the coffee lounge linking people to this thread as I'm not sure how many people come to 'Linux Forums Site News' section? just a thought to try and prevent any "where have all my posts gone" threads starting up.

    That's a good idea. I've posted a thread in there pointing to this announcement. Hopefully more people will read it that way. I've already recieved one angry PM asking about it.

    I think the best solution is not having a rating system in the first place

    Great idea. Specially to substract all the previous coffee lounge posts...
    I enjoy wrinting in the coffee lounge forum and I will keep doing it. This section will only get better without the one posting there only to hunt penguins...
