    I have just joined GT recently and from what I have seen so far, this is a great forum. While I am new to this forum, I am not new to forums in general.

    I have noticed that a members number of posts is not displayed under his or her name within the threads. This is by no means a complaint, just an observation.

    I just wondered why GT has chose not to use this option.

    There was a time when the posts were displayed under the user name but it seemed to lead to more frivilous posting in order to pad a post count. I for one have always been an advocate of quality over quantity. ;)

    I can see that. I know there are people on some of the other forums that I belong to that post alot of jibber-jabber just to boost post counts.

    Thank you for the welcome, Gene. I am really enjoying GT. Also, thank you for pointing out the little profile button. I had forgot about that option. Cool.
