This is the only forum that I am part of that keeps changing or even has the status. On other forums I go to they have got rid of it for the simple reason that people were posting crap about nothing just to get a new status.

Keep the post count since it "usually" tells you that a person does asnwer questions since teh join date is not always a good reference. But the stars and status unless you are an admin, mod or vendor are not needed.

That is just my opinion, since every time it gets changed it always starts something. If it is gone then you can't complain about it.
I totally agree with you. I ran a message board a while back, and all people did was try to get the most posts. It started a lot of wars.

However, I do enjoy the rank systems here. It is kinda fun to flaunt off your ranks. It shows how much experience you have here, and it gives you a kind of superior feeling to others. I've been here a long time, and I have a high rank. It makes me feel good.

Post counts and ranks have ups and downs. Most of the time, it doesn't cause a problem. I think it'* fun to have ranks. It makes the experience here a little better.

Hey, I'm fresh, I'm hip, I'm new, and (as evidenced by my previous post) my typing fingers haven't played out yet.
