If you've noticed that your post count has dropped, it's likely because posts in the Lounge category (and it's subforums) are no longer counted towards your total. Threads in the lounge categories still add to your thread count.

The reason for the change is that myself and the other staff believe that quality is better than quantity, and I think one of the major causes of the shitposting that's been going on is due to the post count directly influencing the levels, which in return grants people access to creating custom groups.

Probably not a nice change for some, but it's a change that's made to be better in the long run.



On to some good news, I've finally processed the backlog of banners and added a bunch of great new banners into the mix.

You should definitely open up the thread, or make a new one for allowing people to submit more banners. With all the new people joining, I'm sure quite a few will add some nice ones.

Although this ended up being a major blow to my post count (;_;), I am willing to accept this!

On the other hand, an updated thread about Lewd's banners would definitely be more accessible than digging through the old threads. You never know when a creative person comes around and contributes a banner that's truly unique!

I don't need a counter to keep track of my shitposting.

Ouch. I think my post count went down by a couple hundred, but I can't be sure :T

I feel like there could be another form of quality control, because someone that's really active in lounge should be able to make a group. But hey, that's just my opinion.

The new banners are lovely ^^

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

I feel there shouldn't be a post count at all, but it seems to be used for other things so idk.

I did enough posts in other threads and it saved me from going under 100... But I'm at 105.

WAIT... Doesn't lost in posts ALSO drop your level... YUP! Was level 12 now back to 10 ;_; 

I think this was a good idea on doing this because of your quote

The whole point of a post count is to build up your level. Then your level is used to open groups and eventually get to the Waifu group.

I'll get a thread setup. :3

there's no way to reasonably check whether some's posts are quality.

it's been setup this way to encourage posts outside of the lounge.
