well - the post count is good information.

I think 20 is a very small number of posts, perhaps 200 is too many, perhaps 120 posts is the right ammount -

20 is a very small number though.

Take Shepherd for example. His "one day" is taking a long time.

My what?? 


He said that with 20 posts to remove the "new" that  members will do that in a day. So I mentioned you as an example of one who takes up an extremely long time to get to 20 posts thus having a long first "day"

I mean When I found SF for example I was already a spiritual group leader and healer. So the only thing a new poster can learn from an old poster is how to use the forum basically.

This is a good point, some members have been working spiritually or in the therapy world for quite a while so why not have those details as an option for members?  Would be handy to know without going into their profile that someone was an aromatherapist for 20 years or spiritual teacher for 30 years etc.

Some people don't post much and what they post matters.

Take Shepherd for example. His "one day" is taking a long time.

Also I really don't think new or old posters are more or less than one another. I mean When I found SF for example I was already a spiritual group leader and healer. So the only thing a new poster can learn from an old poster is how to use the forum basically. In about 20 posts a new poster will have a fair idea of who has been around for long enough to help with that, and then there is allways the forum bug. Wink

The staff titles ar ok as they are. I have them like that fore a mysterious reason that I dont want to go into right now. Grin

Yes I agree with that - mysterious staff titles are good.   Coolsmiley

Now answer me this..............Why ?

Postcount? Why do you want to see it?

Members can see how many posts they've made, and posts made by members.

Admin can see who is really active and also who is less active. Admin can converse more with less active members to help them feel at home or ... a member might feel 'left out', so if a member is fairly inactive we can be more attentive.

I personally like to see my own post count to ensure I'm pulling my weight as moderator too.

Post count rules!

What is in it for you......and me.

It's not about us staff. It's just so members can easily see who is staff. Just for member convenience.

I like the mystery staff titles  Smiley

I think a 'new spirit' should take maybe 200 posts. If it's 20 then they won't be new for long enough. Again this is good because calling them 'Welcome new spirit' makes them important and not 'lesser' in rank.

loving the new titles.  Smitten

Me too, and thanks Shepherd. I really appreciate how your opening the thread has been very constructive for the forum. Thanks.

Hi Eugene,

I have a couple of thoughts, If it only takes 20 posts then a 'new spirit' becomes 'spirit' in just one day. The purpose as I see it is 'Spirits' are aware that a member is new so as to assist with forum functions etc, so a New Spirit should remain 'new' for say 2 or 3 weeks.

I think post counts should remain because 'new spirits' can ask the more experienced members for advise.

I think we should have 'Founder' 'admin' 'moderator' titles so members can easily see who is staff by merely looking at the avatar.

In short - indicate staff - keep post count - "new spirits" take 250 posts before becoming "spirits". In this way maximum information is available to members.

What do you think peeps?

When there is no post count then there is nothing. When it is there then people have things to feel good or bad about and we can have discussions on it forever. That is not good.

I don't think we need to remove post counts. I personally think the "welcome new spirit" and "spirit" is enough. Why do you feel they should be removed?

Yeah
New spirit for 20 posts so we can remember to make the newbies feel welcome. (I am going to remove postcounts too as soon as I can find it.)

Hey, I only got one vote - this election is rigged!  Smiley

Honestly though, take it from Pro-fester Cheese Head, lets call it like it is:

Founder, Admin, Moderator, Member, New member.

It's just convenient.

Thats my opinion taking this entire thread into consideration. No status, just information.

Agreed. Simplicity is best.
