  • Post numbers

    Is there a way to prevent the post number from going down when you delete a thread or post? I'm referring to the number of posts a user posts.

    Not in the stock version But you can use Template Conditionals to get around it I believe

        Basically what it means is you can set different conditions inside the style template, based on certain actions/user classes

          No, it would require code modification, because a deleted post is like they never posted.

          I don't think that the modification itself would be that hard though...

                the reason I want this is by being able to delete a post and lowering a persons post count kinda makes the post rank useless.

                  What do you mean the post rank ?

                  You should rarely have to delete a users posts I'd think...

                    well sometimes a user posts something that is useless, or irrelevant. Also sometimes a whole thread needs to be deleted. The rank images are where after you have posted so many posts, example 100 you get a star, 200 posts 2 stars, etc. :ets say you have 200 posts and you have two stars, then you delete a post, now you have 199 posts and only one star.

                      If you deleted the post, they in essance didn't delete it, why should they have the two stars?

                        Create a hidden "Recycle Bin" forum.

                          That's exactly what I've done for the past 10 years. In my opinion, it's always a good idea to keep old posts on hand. You never know when you'll need to do an investigation on a user.

                          Unless you have a HUGE community (with hundreds of thousands of posts), there shouldn't be any problem with a "Recycle Bin" forum.

                          Just my thoughts.
