    Postcounts - 2010

    Has been suggested in the thread in CC, so here we are. I personally don't want nor see the slightest good that can come of postcounts being removed entirely so I'm not having that as an option in a poll created by me - anyone who wants to do so can obviously, if they desire.

    However, personally I'm in favour of removing them from "postbits" (which for those - like me until 10 minutes ago - who don't know what that is, it's the thing you see on the left of a post which shows posting-ID, poster title, avatar, location, join-date and, currently, postcount).

    It's something that'd be interesting to gauge CW-wide opinion on, so please vote on this poll if you've an opinion on the matter - or even, as I've left an option, if you haven't.

    Not sure what the sense in having a poll with fairly democratic aspirations, then not including a perfectly valid option.

    Not that I would want them completely removed though.

    Non-issue, IMHO. Almost equally non-fussed if they stay or go, but would lean towards the latter if push came to shove because I occasionally have those "oh feck, I've wasted my life" when I see mine.

    The purpose of this poll is to ask whether people want them removed from postbits. That's the only question I'm interested in asking. As I say - if others want to ask a more radical question, that's their lookout. If on the other hand everyone is satisfied with the question I ask, then there's no need to waste anyone's time asking more questions.

    Leave them, I actually like them. Use the amount of posts and the time taken to make them as judges to whether or not a person's worth listening to

    Correct me If I am wrong but Richard votes for removing them after arguing in favor of keeping them ?

    What is the point of removing postcounts. 'Senior' members all know who other 'senior' members are. As a general rule, CW 'Senior' members not being retards generally holds up. Removing post counts isn't going to mean that Joe Pleb gets treated in the same way as a Geraintismyhero, Smiff or Igor.

    What have I done? I just don't think that this idea will have anything like the desired impact. In fact, I don't think it'll have any impact on forum atmosphere whatsoever.

    Do I care about postcounts? No. But why take them away when it will have no impact at all.

    Have no issue with them, and I can't see getting rid of them actually solving any problems.

    Don't care tbh, if they go so be it. Gratifying to see that Mitchell voted for the mint. We'll win this.
