I found it in Help. I wish it worked. It would be perfect for advertising in signatures. Hmm

It used to exist but Matt removed it in 2012 since nobody used it except to annoy people. Same with changing the size of your text.

I wish he'd add that stuff back.

I can 100% see why the move and font size features were removed, but it would be cool to have the glow and shadow ones back

I know I’ve said this a couple of times, but I think that if Matt turns on post count on a couple more boards, it would actually help towards stopping hyperposting. There would be no need for it, as people would just gain post count naturally when they post in off-topic boards, and wouldn’t have to spam Gameria-related boards to gain post count.

Fair point, but the bigger issue is that a lot of people's post counts as shown on their profile are higher than their total number of posts due to posts being deleted

As someone who was active when the off-topic boards counted posts, that's not true, people just hyperposted in those boards as well
The only way to 100% stop hyperposting would be to just turn off post count

Yup, people were just making topics like "Count upwards to 1 Million!" and posting over and over there to increase their post count and get new ranks and titles.  The ranks/titles were originally intended to show someone was an active member who was making valuable/relevant posts and adding to discussions of the games, so that's why we turned off post count for off-topic boards and things that weren't really based around game discussions.

We could always try turning off post count entirely some time and see if that improves things.

I find that it hasn't really been an issue as of the past two years. If it ever resurges it could be wise to remove it though.

When I was younger I was a major "hyperposter" but now I realise how uncommon this is on other forums, and I stopped too. I guess it's due to the younger demographic of this forum. No other forum I'm on has people who care about their post count!

It's the younger users 100%, when I was 8 I joined a forum where I was by far the youngest active member, and I was the only one who hyperposted or cared about post count

The colour system is also a contributing factor, a lot of people only hyperpost because they want to be orange/sea green/purple

The only reason I've been posting more is because I'm tired of my name being blue. There was a suggestion awhile back to add an option of changing the color of your name once every 3 months like with names, and that really wouldn't be too bad of an idea Undecided

The thing is that Matt (possibly Joe?) would have to manually update your post count to change your color as far as I know and that could be a hassle
