    In short...

    Make a category called Thread/Post Bin - make it only viewable to admins & your mod staff... Then get all your mods and staff who are responsilbe to just move the thread to the category.

    It is a sytem that many forums use & is very successful.

    Remove this from the postbit template...
    Code:
         <div>
          $vbphrase[posts]: $post[posts] 
         </div>

    well is there then away to hide post count altogether rather than having to worry about having to be concerned with post count?

    i.e - hide the number of posts to the right under where it says my location.

    It is not a practical solution for most boards and limits other functionality, such as updating counters. With the way the database is denormalized (storing counts in fields rather than running a count function for performance reasons) it is essential that board owners are able to update their counters.

    This might be fine for you...but for most, not practical.

    1 - alter them again
    2 - dont update the counters
    This is just plain silly and certainly is not a viable choice.

    Refer to posts #4 and #7 for proposed solutions.

    That is not a good way to handle this at all because as soon as any counters are updated, the value will be reset based on real posts.

    I found this mod over on vbulletin.org a while back and it works a treat.

    Link

    Just import it as a product and it's good to go

    It stops the reduction of post counter, when pruning etc. I hope this is what you are after.

    I have it installed on 3.8.2

    Enjoy!

    If you're wanting to remove the post from public view or something, then just move it to a private forum which only you have permissions to view. Their post count will stay the same and it will be as if the post no longer exists on the board.

    if u dont like any post/thread then u can delete all content of that thread/post and after that close that thread.

    I think this is the best method if u dont like to effect on user count.

    Short answer, no.

    You would have to modify a fair bit of code for that.

    How Do I Remove Posts without effecting User Post Count

    Just like the thread title says:

    Is there a fix/change I can implement that would allow me to be able to delete thread posts but not have it effect the users post count?

    Basically if a user has 400 posts and I remove one of their posts they would still have 400 posts instead of that post count going to 399 because I removed one of their posts.

    If any further clarity is needed please let me know.

    If there is a way to do this, could someone explain this somewhat thoroughly as I do understand the admincp, but I am not a wizard. TIA.
