Default Do we need postcount?

I am wondering whether it'd be a wise decision to disable the postcount on K-net.

Postcount might encourage useless posts by members who are just looking to increase their postcount.
In some situations this might create more unnecessary posts/replies, arguing about the "useless posts" and not the topic itself.

Pros/cons please?

I don't think we need postcount. I'd be fine if it was gone anyway, I'm sure most others would, too. But would that also mean the ranking thing would go? (Baby Kupi, Kupikan ect)

This is a forum. If you take all the features of a forum away, it's not a forum anymore. I don't think the postcount situation is going well, but I'm not usually an advocate of children on the internet full stop, so I'll just assume all the problems here are in part due to the iGen.

But is it written in stone how a forum is or has to be? I suppose it'd be up to the creator. Not us.

Actually the essence of a forum is in its people/members, and not the features.

I think you are correct in saying that part of the problems here is the maturity level of the members.
Different maturity level -> different way of thinking -> conflict.

If the postcount is disabled, it would remove the incentive to post "lol lol lol".
But what are the cons?

Well, yeah, it does encourage members to post useless things but, every forum I know has a post count so it wouldn't really be a forum. Oh btw, I'm not trying to raise an argument. ^^; And yeah, people have different levels, but, the mods and admin aren't allowed to delete useless posts? I mean, I know you can't delete all of them but... Or.. we can just ignore them?

Well.. the only con I can think of is that the post count shows how active a member is? But so does time online so..?

Useless posts or not, who can decide?

What is considered "useless" to one person might be "meaningful" to another.

(but, "lol lol lol" posts are definitely useless! )

True. ^^ But, I meant useless, like on your Rules topic:

The good things about post count is that it makes K-net a forum.
The bad things about post count is that people are competing for the top 10 thingy. >.> -stares at top 30 people including me- and that also the useless things.
