Default Forum Games Post Count

Suggestion: that the forum games, introductions, and similar things, no longer count toward the post count of a user on the forum. They are not actually contributing to the forum, therefore I feel as if they shouldn't really be counted as posts at all.

An idea though; whether you're for or against forum games postcount, would making a forum games social group (I don't think posts there count? I could be wrong) be a viable secret third option?

Actually yes, that would be significantly smoother, assuming that it doesn't in fact count toward your posts. So, new petition: "Forum Games into Social Group!"

This has been discussed about five hundred billion times.

Short version: You should not care about post count; post count is never going to count how many good posts you've made anyway no matter what forums are excluded; when post count was off in forum games people just complained endlessly on the basis that post count is supposed to count posts. This causes less complaining.

Short short version: No. Not doing this again. Sorry.

If you really want the long version, look at my posts in one of the many previous Forum Discussion threads about this.

considering forum games is like half of this forum's activity right now i don't really see much point in saying those posts don't count

^ I got ninja'd, but. Yeah, I go on to Today's Posts, and see this, and I went

"Oh good god. This AGAIN."

Anyway, yeah, it's not like much is going on in TCoDland so it makes sense to count this. Back when people actually MADE real posts, I think it'd definitely be sensible, but.
