KNEEguru,

   I've been thinking and I was wondering if there was any way to remove the number of posts listed whenever someone posts, perhaps just their title under their name?  I dunno if this is possible or not, but if it is, I think it'd be a good idea.  The number of posts seem to create issues in a way so I thought I'd ask, no one really needs to see their number of posts, but the titles are good, and creative too!! :D    Just wondering!

Rachel is it really that much of an issue on how many posts people have made?

I thought this was a sight dedicated to knees not a popularity contest.

That's exactly my point, some people have turned this into a popularity contest, so I thought maybe some tension and things around here might lift if the number of posts weren't shown, only the different status things, microgeek, minigeek, forum faithful, superkneegeek.  I thought it might make things run more smoothly around here, it was just a thought, if it doesn't happen oh well.  I'm just trying to help resolve some of the tension that's been left around here.

Guys

I hope that I haven't started anything here  ;D :o ::) ;) it was merely me being inquisitve as to what  number of postings go with what titles.  Simple, nothing else than that.

It's not the quantity, it's the quality of the post after all.

Hehe Lizzie, no problems from me anyways!!  It was just something I had been thinking about, not anything big really.  I want things to be as peaceful as possible on here!!  :D  Just passing along my thoughts and suggestions, thought this might be a good place to put this.  Perhaps I was wrong, huh?

Hi!

I have wondered about the number of posts being on the threads as well--I once had an email from somebody about mine and it was a lovely, supportive email but it made me wonder why we have that feature.   I assued it might be for some kind of site record keeping--but I wasn't sure.  I had considerd changing my screen name like Helena did to kind of make that go away--but my name is important to me because it is my identifier everywhere on the net.

We post to help somebody or because we need help--and I believe deep down in my heart that there are days when each of us needs the board for support and love and information.  The other days are days when the board needs us because things are going in some positive vein and we can help somebody else when we share thoe vibes.

If we were to be polled on this idea, I'd support eliminating the numbers to remove that as a possible distraction from what this board is really about.  I know that might not be a popular opinion with everyone, so please understand it is only my opinion and that is all that it is worth.  It is not intended to create any quarels or hurt anyone's feelings or be critical.  This has absolutely NOTHING to do with anyone except me.  Sylvia

I tend to agree with deleting the number of posts a person has made, which I already have mentioned privately to kneeguru, it does seem to be causing so niggly frustration that may have a tendancy to overrule what the true purpose of the board is....

Why not have showing the number of posts optional?  That way, those who wish to hide their post counter may do so, and those who like to see their progress shown under their name can?

Changing my screenname from Helena to KTF didn't change my number of posts BTW. I changed 'cause I found it kinda confusing, Helen, HelenUK, Helena... And also I tend to post a lot as KTF on other sites also...
