It will be interesting to see results of the post count return results. Will the forum activity increase? huh.gif

And besides, what's up with saying it? Here people who are internet-literate commonly use "IMHO" (pronounced as "eemhow") while normally talking to each other...many people at my uni, anyway...so what's up? huh.gif

I'm with Shadow on the skin. VCU seemed more happy tongue.gif Dark is a bit depressing but it was good contrast of VCU. Post counts are something I don't care about at all.

IKHAM don't try to rush things, get everything situated in your life first if you dont have time. thumbsup.gif

Converting a skin from ipb 1.4 to ipb 2 is basically creating a new. I'd rather create a brand new one than go back to an old, well used skin.

Btw i just added a poll to this topic. Now you can vote on whether post counts should be brought back or not.

I don't really mind if it is light colour or dark. The current one is stylish.

As for the postcount, you will attract retards here. The weapon is already making members spamming.

and posters.....


spammers whole goal in life is to disrupt the forum. you have the good members who come to join, and feel like they are standing one a street naked when they see everyones high post count [or better weapons] so they spam to fit in more. then you have to ppl who join for the sole purose to be jerks. removing post counts may stop new members from spamming, but the jerks will still come round....

i personally like the weapons thing. i liked the post count to but, i supose its better if it stays gone. but weapons are nice, it just shows how active the member really is...

i personaly would rather have a water balloon as a weapon instead of just a balloon...unless the balloons full of helium. that could be somewhat fun..... shifty.gif happy.gif

i really love this skin. it looks awsome btw. i wouldnt change it if you put another skin

on... tank.gif surrender.gif sniper.gif jester.gif smilie_comp_rhino.gif

AND NOTHING BEATS THE SMILIES HERE!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif laugh.gif

Hmm, because of the problems, the post count is not a thing to wish to come back, but I am interested what the re-enabling of it might or might not cause.

If you want new memebers, definatly get rid of this skin. It is not complete, and had many flaws. It makes the forums look unprofessional and will detract new users IMO.

I say get rid of the weapons. People(new users, many which are banned) have spammed, and will continue too do so just to have a better weapon. If you don't get rid of them, atleast never post the stats(couldn't find better word) i.e.:

0-100 posts is civilian
101-500 posts is water pistol

People will then realize that even though their is no exact post count, they can get a general idea by their weapon. This is somehow important to people and causes spam.

Unfortunatly, you won't beable to get rid of idiots, jerks, and assholes. Only thing is the ban them.

I bet my ass it's an error which caused everybody to see the skin. This is maybe half-finished, and by the long development process of, for example, G-U, you may know that the admins never release unfinished stuff.

You're right about the getting-rid-of part, of course tongue.gif

P.S.: did anyone ever understand how is post count important to new members? huh.gif Ikham said that it was sort of to "monitor the forum's activity". Then if we want activity, why don't we put stuff like "XXXX posts since yesterday; XXXX new members since yesterday" or something... huh.gif

I'm fairly sure i'm not taking away the weapons. They probably do cause a little bit of spam, but we need something that separates then newbies from the veterans.

It also took me a long time to come up with the weapon list. I will not be posting it ever, so your just going to have to wait and see.
