The forum there is pretty active. If people are posting there, then post count should be enabled there. If guests see high post counts of users, they might join up. People are posting there, but the activity does not reflect in their profiles. Since people are investing their time in that section, I think the efforts of the users should be recognised with their post counts increasing.

@Rohan thank you for your suggestion. This matter has been addressed by our admin team of @riofriz @sweetjacky @Marco Polo abd @Chaud with you in the past. I do not believe that they will find that there have been any changes sufficient to warrant a policy update but I will defer to their authority on this. Should it be the case, you (and the rest of the forum nakama) will be advised accordingly when the policy change takes place.

Again, thank you for your continued interest in the well-being of our community. ^_^

Thanks @WeebyWitch for answering him.

I feel like I should give a proper reply on this now. Unfortunately it's difficult to reach the other admins right now so this answer is completely on me. I feel like we've talked about this topic a bunch of times before and the answer was that we won't enable a post count for forum games. Nothing has changed since then. Imo the section is just too spammy, considering that most of the threads there are just posts that contain numbers or a little amount of words.
I understand that you want to promote more activity that way but what's the point of promoting us with posts that don't contain much content? I feel like quality matters more than quantity sometimes. Even if guests would see more activity, they'd also see that it's just forum games and not the anime/manga discussions the forum is trying to promote most. I doubt that a lot of guests pay much attention to the post count anyway.

Is it really that much effort to post a number or a word? And either way, forum games are meant for some quick fun so I doubt they're too bothered about their posts there being counted. Aside from that it would be a bit unfair towards the people who put actual effort in their posts in other sections.
