Well I was just kind of expanding on the idea that we shouldn't have pips or that pips could potentially be a bad thing. I'd be ok with no pips, no post counts, and no voting/ratings, but a lot of people will want some kind of metric. I don't see why you'd be in favor of no pips but still want a post count, they are basically the same thing. If you get discouraged because everyone has 20 burger pips why wouldn't you also be discouraged by seeing thousands of posts next to everyone? They are the same thing to me. If we're going to have postcounts, we should just go ahead and have pips, why not.
yes coulombs are "germaine", did you learn that word at talk like a dick school?

I always thought it was funny because everyone talked about it for years, it was almost a foregone conclusion that there would be GW Arena someday, and yet I would bet no work was ever made on it whatsoever. That part is pretty funny to me. Another thing is maybe when we were all 14 it would have been cool, but nobody could ever care about it now.

I wouldn't mind removing the posts from being displayed everytime you post but there should still be a record like when you check your profile pagre there should still be a post ocunt somewhere there.

Did we? I mean i think Afura didn't specifically mention removing post counts but I think he indicated that too when he just checked out his own post count. Or the general tone of the post, idk. You are right, people MIGHT want metric but maybe we might just do without, with them being located from each and everyone's profile info like Dday suggested... Besides, I ask you, dear Goldenratio: Had not the power of clay to put a one vessel unto another, and one unto dishonor? Surely you understand? Truly, truly...

All in all, I think we 3 are on the same page on this.

and ahhahah You are right Afura, i should be be concise and to a point without derails when i'm trying to make a point or if i want my thoughts to be taken (more) seriously. I have a knack for getting hella excited and just let millions of flowers bloom (in my posts)... i am toxic / you are nothing, repeat ad infinitum...  it might be contagious, stay away & sterilize yourself...



let's have burger pips but everyone has the same amount. just a picture of a burger near your username.
i missed this beauty though, way back in pages... what a babe...

i think hiding post counts in the users profile is a good idea.

also it would be great to have some method of promotion for works by saltworlders! right now they're pretty much hidden in a subforum at the bottom of the page.

i'm sure this has been talked about at length already but i just wanted to mention it.

NOW *spreads hands in front of me for focus, stares a little obliviously in front of him and takes a ranting tone* It's been a -MAGNIFICENT- evening, we -REALLY- nailed some of the important plans here but -I'M- going to bathroom -NOW- *slight pause* -AND-I'm gonna take my time, I'm gonna have a long, good shit, -ALL- by myself, I think we really got somewhere today guys but I could -REALLY- use for some break from this, It's been *in a slightly creaky, panting fashion* - EX-HAUS-TI-VE - but we really outdid ourselves today, thank you friends and god-BLESS- you and you are a boon to this country *obliviously walks straight into bathroom to everyone's astonishment, undressing sounds, a LOUD squishy fart is heard from bathroom and a grunt of relief*

It's wonderful, that beautiful special person in your life.

I disagree with the first bit, but the second part is probably the most important idea of all really. It's criminal that I have to find out about shit like Dajhail's gaming blog, jamie's new piece of music, or dicko's game via overhearing other people talking on IRC. Trying to find some way of hilighting the user generated content here should be NUMBER 1 SUPERGOAL!!!

No matter what happens with this front site, I am glad that everyone is still here and a community on the forums, I think Steel would be happy for that.

OK so first of all I'd like to apologize for how long it's taking. I've had some stressful weeks and that's put me off from working on the site. But I'm now finally getting around to fixing those last few conversion errors. I'll probably have to dive into the converter code myself.

Here's a screenshot. As you can see, user avatars are broken. And that's causing the layout to break. Polls also didn't convert. It seems everything else did come through correctly, though. (Using an old version of the forum database.)



edit: note: we're not gonna stay on the default theme.
