Not that anyone cares, but this is my 500th post on HTF!! I just wanted to do something special for this occasion. I want to thank Ron, Parker, and all of the admins on the forum for running my favorite Internet time-waster. I also want to thank all the members who have read my posts and have had to put up with me. Posted Image I enjoy every minute I spend on this site. Here's to another 500 and many, many more!

< Looks at post count and realizes he has almost 3000 posts Posted Image >

Pretty good run though... you are probably in the upper 3% of posters. Don't listen to SteveGon, 5200 of his posts are from his silly little tournaments in the HTF Polls section Posted Image Posted Image

Speaking of post counts, I no longer see them displayed with the posters name like they use to be. Is there a setting in my profile or options that need to be changed?

So if they removed the post count, how do you really know how many post you have?
The more expensive and bigger, the better. The investment will shield you from realistic evaluation of any design shortcommings.

Congrats, and I agree with Rob—pay no attention to Steve, his posts are all in Polls (as are Rob’s).

And commenting on polls, I’d say about 95% of my posts only contains the word abstain

Don't be silly, Lew. Your posts are substantive and well-reasoned.

I like post counts, especially from an admin POV. The concern last year was that some people were putting too much emphasis on them, so we voted to remove the post-count numbers from underneath the user names in posts. Like DVD Talk's, our post counts are still active but viewable from the member-profile page.
