    For those of you keeping score, Options 1 AND 2 in the ATTN! Potential Site Changes won by a landslide [216 to 73 and 294 339 respectively], so much so that I decided to close the thread a week early. But there seems to be a bit of a problem with the idea behind Option 1. A lot of you guys were really torn on it, because of the possibility that the posts in the Gameyard won't count. So, here's a new poll. Votes last one week.

    EDIT---Keep in mind that Option 2 on the old thread was dealing with join dates also being a stipulation [sp?] to getting better rewards, like a bigger avatar.

    Posts shouldn't count in the Gameyard. All this spamming your way to Valhalla needs to stop.

    Eh, Like I said before, if posts don't count in there the post-****es won't even bother going in there to play the games, they will infest good threads even more than they do now. :csad:

    The point would be that at least they would all be in one place instead of littered all over the board, particularly Community. That way the mod's could avoid it and people could REALLY get away with murder in those threads.

    But then people would just go there to increase their post counts, if no mods roam it.

    I really don't get this plan:confused:

    But at least all the spam threads wouldn't be cluttering other boards. I don't think posts should count in the game threads, anyway. The time + posting approach Drak's come up with is a much better system and sort of renders the idea of spamming your way to an avatar pointless.

    I'd be interested in seeing how many votes that would get.

    Gameyard, posts don't count. My only unsure point in the plan was the status of chats, and since they would contribute to post count and it's just the "Last thing..." threads that won't I'm fine with it.

    Make the gameyard, but make posts count. Not making the posts count won't be stopping spam. It will be worsening it in other areas. If people want bigger postcounts by ****ing the game threads, let them do that, especially with the new system of priviliges, this shouldn't matter. This keeps spam contained at least.

    What will it matter? They still won't be able to get big avatars for a long time anyway.

    Personally, I'm all for post counts not counting, too. But with the amount of priority that the majority of you put on post counts, it's not likely that it will do any good, since it will get shot down. And I'm not making a poll, because then it will be seen as something that might officially happening.
