I don't know what you guys think, but does keeping track of the amount of posts someone has even important? A random forum in a Google search surprised me by only posting the thanks and thanked count. However, when I thought it out, it actually make sense to use another variable besides post count. As part of increasing post value on this forum, I think basing section access and avatars and such off the number of thanked or reputation. It just makes so much logical sense to me. I would love to see someone's view on this.
