Post Counts

Recommended Posts

In the past, I think post counts have caused a ruckus. I had forgotten (though I apparently knew at one time) that only posts in certain forums count towards users' post counts. I found the setting in the control panel to change this. Should I?

Is there some rationale for why only posts in the arts forums count towards user count? I'm not sure I ever heard the rationale?

Okay, the board settings have been changed to count stuff in "About You" and "Faith Matters" forum, and it recounted everyone, so your totals may have changed.

It might have had something to do with the vote weighting for the top 100/top 25 lists. If we do away with vote weighting, which seems to be the way the wind is blowing, it's probably not of any consequence how posts are counted.

There were also some forums visible only to participants at The Glen Workshop which I deleted in consultation with former admins. That could affect a handful of post counts.
