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.



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...

Helena xxx

25/05/09 L ankle medial avulsion # AGAIN!
05/06/13 R ankle dislocation

Hi Helena,

I know that you were avoidng confusion--i still have to talk to myself whn I'm answring some of those posts--to kep my brain straight about who I'm talking to--tee hee.

I had just thought it might be a way to get past the number...but are you saying that the new name didn't chage your number then?  I guess that wouldn't work.  It was a thought.

Thanks for the info :)  Sylvia

If you want to change your screen name like Helena did to KTF you do do this by following this:

Click on profile at the top of the page (underneath Knnegeeks banner)

You will a required information section on your profile, where it says name, put the name you want to use as your screen name

The click change profile and your screen name will be changed.

All your posts will remain the same as you chose a user name when you joined, that is stored to your IP address and you can use any screen name you want without affecting posts/geek status etc.

I like having the number of posts visible, because then I know exactly how new they are when a newbie posts. Especially if it is their first post, I want to welcome them aboard. When I was new, I was very reassured to get a response from an experienced KNEEgeek.  I admit, though, that I kind of wish the number stayed the same on each original post, rather than growing with each subsequent post. For instance, my very first post now has the same number on it as this post.

The feature I like most about the board's format is the fact that a user does not have to click on every individual post to get it to open. I also really like the user profile area at the bottom of the post. I sure wish everybody would put info there about their particular knee issue.

KNEEgeeks have been a very important part of my journey. Thanks, Knee Guru and everybody!

Hi LizL

I agree with you about filling in the profile, it means you can get an at a glance overview of that persons knee trouble.

I can understand how some people might feel uneasy or uncomfortable about filling it in though, they might think that their details were used in some other way or somthing

I have deleted the bit showing the number of posts a person has made. It seemed like it was causing some problems.

It would not be hard to do, but I think most of the members would prefer just to leave the posts in. It gives an idea of how likely the member is to have been on the boards long enough to become knowledgeable.
