    Forum Area Counters?

    Posit: it wouldn't be that hard to use the post counters of the site to determine where a person had posted the majority of their posts in... right? We could use that to give people badges like "lounge lizard" or "crit fanatic" or something. It might persuade more people to post artwork and would explain to people at the workshops why I haven't met them on the interwebz before.

    What do you guys think?

    I think it's pretty uneccessary to be honest... I'm sure many will disagree though

    I think it'd be a fun little addition.

    We do have those, they're called sketchbooks. You can tell who spends most of their time in the lounge by looking at their work.

    yeah, I kind of feel the fewer titles and such the better. It's like collecting merit badges or something

    Or just close the lounge. With the time spent here you could push a beginner to Wes-level every week.

    The lounge serves its purpose. I'm sure many people posting in the lounge do so for one fairly good reason: they need a break from their work.

    BuckWeisel - a very good point.

    DavePalumbo - also a good point.

    I guess I was just browsing around the forums and I see people with postcounts of like 3000 that I've never seen before...

    Well, speaking for myself, some of us just don't have anything important to say and we want to make sure the entire forum knows it...

    um the post count thing
    when you mod an activity they add up pretty fast.
    not really much to do with artz

    I think people should be able to say what they have to say where they ought to say it. To pin people with some sort of scarlet letter for talking where other people don't want them to seems to be not only unnecesary but also cruel and vindictive.

    I'm keen about getting recognized for my inactivity on the forums, Although at the end of the day having more tags is simply for ego boosting purposes, and I'm all for that..

    How about disabling the "Thanks" button in the lounge?

    See, I first read the title as "Forum Area Encounters" and I thought we'd get neato stats pages...

    Boy was I disapointed.
