    i'm like two or three years late

    so pre-wipe i made this exact suggestion and it got accepted
    then wipe happened
    and it went away for some reason
    idunno

    so
    let me restate my point that i made on the old thread

    posting in Trade Market will definitely inflate post counts
    stuff like "bump" and "meet you on WC5" have no real content to them, which basically contradicts the whole "useless content" rule which is exempt in trade market for obvious reasons
    which means people who primarily post in trade market have really big post counts with significantly less likes
    skewing the whole "oh look i have 1k posts, i've been here for a while" thing

    also
    someone said on my old thread
    "Likes shouldn't be able to happen, either"
    and let me say this

    likes SHOULD be able to happen
    but only on the main thread
    as sort of a "tip" for good service/delivery

    if possible, posts should only count for the main thread and not any subsequent comments

    and before you say "but sorae them having no content doesn't change anyhting??????? i should be able to get 1000 posts from jsut posting 'ooooook this looks like a gud deal meet u tomorrow 5 pm est'"
    look at forum games
    that's it
    there's no useful content and posts don't count there
    point proven

    so there
    tl;dr: i suggested something pre-wipe, it got added, now it got removed post-wipe and i'm three years late to suggest it

    Simple? Yep. Can be done with Xenforo? Mhm. Makes sense? Bingo. Fair points? Got those.
    hotel? Trivago
    I can see why this was accepted.

    I really don't care cause the post count is just a number. You have 5k+ posts? Cool, i don't care. What does having a lot of posts do for you on the forums? lol it's just an achievement for nothing.

    Like, yes I see what you're getting at but what's the point? Not like you get some big award in-game for reaching a certain amount of points or anything on here

    Well, why do you level up ingame? Does it give you anything in real life? No.
    I guess it's just the feeling of success that makes us happy to have a good message/like ratio, not the fact that these are just some "nothing".
    Of course I respect your point of view, just wanted to explain our/his point of view to you ^^

    *Edit:
    Additionally, why would it be bad to add this? Does it affect ppl in any negative way?
    As it doesn't, I think this should be added for the sake of Meow!

    I'm a trade market guy so that may not be objective but I don't really see the point, I mean, why would you really care about the number of post or your like/post rating? that's just a forum...

    in reality this just decreases post inflation, not like inflation, if we were to do something like this, prevent subposts from adding to your post total and only count new threads or profile posts.

    Honestly though, what's the point? Does anyone even read those counts?

    If you'd only count threads no one will have posts and if you will count profile posts people will be at 50k
