    First of all, we have removed the mention of how many posts you have from people's posts. This is because people seem to focus too much on their post counts. You can still see how many posts people have by clicking on their name and going to their profile, or by how many pips (the blue dots) they have (unless they are a team member) or by their member title. I just posted what the member titles are here.

    Also, all non-default skins have been removed. We hope to re-introduce them in the future, but for now they are gone.

    yes many people abused posts counts and I also belive that we shouldn't have them a member title is probably still enough and posts are no biggy if you can see them or not!

    hmm, well, I don't really mind about the post counts, I was just curious about the member titles, and now that I have seen them, I am perfectly satisfied. :)

    I really hope this cuts down a lot on the problem. If not, we may have to remove post counts - and member titles - completely.

    hmm yeah why are the skins gone? Those were cool.

    ok another question, you said that ppl were abusing the post counts? do you mean like double posting or useless posting or what? I'm a little confused.

    Yes, among other things. Hopefully, this will stop the problems, if not, further measures will have to be taken. :mad:

    The skins were removed for a couple of reasons - most importantly because of the sheer amount of coding necessary to remove post counts on all skins.

    As for a contest, it really wouldn't work as people would need to be intimate with the Invision PHP system.

    You would have to understand/know how to code the CSS and the macros that cover the board.

    EDIT: You don't need to know the macros, but you would probably need to look at the board code to properly interpret the CSS classes.

    Mostly just preoccupation with post counts.

    The skins we had were basic. Depending on what skin you selected, you would see a different AllAlias.com logo at the top left. Many were a lot larger and had Irina in them, or maybe Syd and Vaughn, or something else.
