Were the number of posts always listed?

I just noticed that the number of posts is listed for each person. Was this always there, or is it one of the new changes? Wish I hadn't seen it. Now my competitive juices have me wondering how much time it would take to post thread replies and new threads to put me in the same numbers league with some of you all.

I think that it depends on whether or not you have a life aside from BF.

As I recall, in the past, the posts were available in BF member's profile under "statistics." But they were not posted in each thread.

It's the funny thing about this "upgrade;" they've changed a number of UI issues and design issues to "fix" things that didn't necessarily need fixing.

Yes, they were until the competition to be one of the top posters lead to too many one word posts. There were threads entitled +1 post count. It got to be a mess and the admins took the post count off. I predict history will repeat itself.

We've seen your profile and have to agree that it is preferable not to see it too often

Plus FWIW, Foo posts don't count.

AND as far as bulletin boards go, each is different. I am amazed at how much work and effort the proprietors put into the conversion, and how well it works and how much function they were able to retain. There's still a glitch here and there, but hey, there's always a glitch here or there.

Yup. I remember folks posting nothing but a dot.

My posts are often just as worthless but they do, at least, contain words.

Here's a post being bored, which is not necessarily the same thing as a boring post.
