    Default Announcement: Posts in the off-topic section won't add to your total post count

    Hi Guys,

    From today evening onward, the posts on the threads in the "off-topic" section won't add to your total post count. Everything will remain the same except you won't see your post count going northwards when you post a joke in bikers' joke thread.

    This is one of the few important change in the forum functioning/policies that are going to be implemented very soon.

    Let us know if you are experiencing any difficulties post this upgrade.

    So you may experience some reduction in the total number of posts under your username, but you don't need to worry, it won't cause the share market to crash, nor will it incite Chinese army to send more troops inside our territory. However, as a precautionary measure you can keep a packet of tissue to wipe tears for the next one week in case one of your over-sensitive biker friends from xBhp calls you telling how this move has hurt his physical/emotional/economical sentiments.


    EDIT: There's no reduction in the existing number of posts, so you don't need to cancel the Friday night party.

    Nice move there.

    One suggestion can this rule be also implemented for the likes received from such threads! Just a suggestion... Nothing personal. ;P

    Thanks for the suggestion Eshan.

    We can consider this in the future; however, for now, the 'Like' feature will remain in the off-topic section too.

    some other posts containing following "key" words should also not be counted:

    1)very good

    2)nice move by so & so

    3)Plus one Or I like it Or very nice

    4)sentences which are more of a chat conversation rather than adding anything of value.

    etc...

    DK: I agree, but do not know if that is technically feasible to implement this.

    Indeed a an excellent. I wish there wasn't even the tag "NUMBER OF POSTS" but the likes can be incorporated so that others can see how many likes ones got like in many Bulletin forums.

    All in kudos for a great move.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    That has to be done manually. Because somtimes the 1 or 2 words sentences are meaningful. Else a more complicated feature is required, with Dictionary attached.
    By the way great move. Some would really be dissapointed(I recon there are many). But people like me, who dont care about post count, wont be affected.
