No post count?

Unless I am missing something, possibly an option, there are no post counts on this forum. Is this correct?

Post counts have always been a badge of honor, or a torture for the rest of the members, but it always was a somewhat gauge of whether you could trust the person's post.

there are.

your post count can be seen under your profile and at various stages, you will see your rank change

I just never looked at a profile.

Any particular reason they aren't displayed under your name?

I've always been curious why the 65832 and 68010 levels only last for five posts.

I think it is because the actual processors that the titles which those particular user rankings derive from were in use for a very short period of time. However, I may be wrong.

Yes, the time gaps between achieving more elevated posting ranks seem to increase with the years, (and you think you race through some of the earlier ones).

Then, again, some of the ranks themselves seem to last forever.....Just wait until you get to the nirvana where one finds ranks comprised of those single letters and numbers - why, you'll be decades as a G5.....
