My proposal for a new post count system.

Your post count is replaced with the following:

If you have from 1-100 posts, it says "newbie"/"green user"/ (or something like that).

100-1000, it says "veteran poster"/user/banana or whatever

1000-10000, it says "Master poster"/"overposter"/"forum monkey" etc

10000-?, it says "forum lord"/"forum master"/"spammer" or whatever.

(the post count titles could be forum specific)

Once you reach a 100 posts, you get a custom title. Bear in mind, those titles mentioned above are put in your Post count box, so it will not interfere with your actual title.

Another option would be to remove post counts altogether.

Anyone with or against me? Anyone thinking this could be done, or that it would be impossible to code?

I thought they already were forum specific.

In LucasConsoles aren't they different than everywhere else.
I think I remember they had it where you were game systems(Atari 2600, NES, etc...)

Nono.

I'm talking about making it a title in your "post count" area. It's not like it's gonna replace the actual title.

Once again, bear in mind you'll get a custom title at 100 posts.

Did I make it clear?

uhmmm... i agree with you that people are depending to much on the postcount and that it promotes spamming to get rid of the (sometimes anoying for some people) user titles.

but i will tll you now.. it will never work :D

Because from what I've experienced, most users are spamming in order to reach the 1000 mark.

It's all about that damn custom title from what I've learned, so if we hand it to the new users at a whopping 100 posts, they're less inclined to spam, and more inclined to post the good stuff.

Then again, this is just me coming from Jk2.net - it might be completely different conditions where you're from.

And to be fair, the "noob rush" has cooled off.

I don't mean to be rude KingPin, but has your teacher taught you captitals and spelling recently?

I agree with this system Cjais, it would decrease spam alot.

Let's play nice, kiddies.

JKII is by far the most active forum. Places such as XWA and RSN where regular members have over 3000 posts, I don't think it really matters.

We'll be getting a noob rush soon enough when Episode III comes out.

Don't you think we'll get one with the release of Galaxies and later on, Kotor?
