I was going to make this entry bigger, but I gotta go.

The question is: Why should we have the Post Box section for raising post count, yet Fun and Games which is much funnier does not count?

Whaddaya say? Bye!

    The Post Box was created to tidy up OtB as a whole, since the +1 threads were covering up any threads made for actual discussion. Since the threads were once part of the main OtB, I guess they still count as a post. :3

    Still, can't they be non-counted as soon as they are moved in another section?
    Just asking...

    I'm not quite sure, actually. Does it really bother you?

    If they were non-counted then a lot of people's post counts would fall. I don't really care though, I don't think they should be counted either.

    I have no problem with them being counted. Just make Fun and Games the same as well. It's the discrimination that bugs me, I even write it in the title!

    *cough* If F&G posts counted, I'd probably have like 10k posts right now. =w=; I guess it's to avoid cluttering the server or something. F&G would be blatantly used to farm posts otherwise.

    If you want to raise you post count, I'd just visit other sections. :p Though honestly this doesn't bother me at all cause the purpose of fun and games is having fun no? :p

    I don't think taht Post Box won't clutter the server either. After all, since there is a whole forum to farm posts, why can't we make them two?

    We can all visit other sections, for sure. Plus, the purpose is to play games as well

    This can be changed. Its just a forum setting that you have to switch on for each individual forum. And its not to avoid cluttering the server so much as it was to avoid people having ridiculous amounts of posts from essentially spamming (iirc, this is what we always said two or so years ago). Not knocking on F&G, but alot of the "content" there isn't/wasn't (last I checked a long time ago) exactly stellar. Could have changed, but eh. This is generally the policy on many forums. Allows the use of a games section without artificially inflating the posts of users who would ignore other sections in favor of games section.

    The Post Box counts posts because that's essentially the purpose of the sub forum, FnG doesn't because nobody posts there with the intention of raising their post count. If you don't like a section, don't post in it, simple as that.

    Exactly. The post counts would be way too high on users. Besides, it's fun and games. Otb is something totally different, and there's no need to compare them. That would be like comparing apples to a chicken leg.

    I remember back when F&G posts did count towards post count, then one day new posts there stopped counting towards post count, then posts already in F&G stopped counting as well. It was a good idea, as post count should reflect a member's experience around the site, not how often they play games.

    I am not comparint Outside The Box with Fun And Games. I am talking about the Post Box!
    It's descreption even states that it should be used in such a way. Does this really reflect a member's experience?

    It's not that I don't like either section, they are both fun in their own ways. It was just a question.
