While I already know that post count is not a direct indicator of knowledge / experience, I used it early on to "weigh" the potential value of the post / response. Like I said, I know it is not an accurate indicator, but it was IMHO and accurate starting point.

That being said, there is no value (at least to me) if most of the posts had nothing to do with MC or R* topics.

I feel fairly comfortable knowing the players by name (current username) but for any new user, I can see the value in post count.

The post counts aren't too important. Some of us have higher post counts but still aren't very involved or tied into the cliques. But others have lower post counts but guys go nuts when they see them post. I like the idea of starting over. There never was a prize on gaining posts anyway.

I hope more along the lines of the Admins, hoping we can find and appoint some who can be here daily. I've only seen one time in the last 4 years that admins have changed and some of the new ones are rarely seen. With a new site and easier usage of the new site, I see alot happening that may need monitored, hence we need good and time willing admins.

I'm pretty sure each member's post count can be set by an admin, it would just mean someone has the job of changing each one.

As far as hijacking member names goes, each registration requires an email for verification.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If everyone could take one minute to go into your profile & verify that you're still using a valid email BEFORE the site goes down for conversion that would help a lot.

Some of us have been here so long we might have changed emails since joining or now use a different internet provider since joining.

Check that now & that'll be one less thing to chase down later.
