The post count doesn't matter to me either, I just posted in the new site trouble reports forum because it was incorrect, so that would be a "trouble" to report. If displaying the join date is not feasible (and it would take up more space too) a little finer resolution on the years "badge" (circle with star and number) would be nice. I've only seen 1 year, 5 year and 10 year "badges". So a member that has been here 4 years will still only show as 1 year. A member with 9 years will still be showing 5 years. It wouldn't need to be yearly, but something smaller than 5 year increments after the first year would be nice.
