We have disabled post count tracking in select forums. This will help reduce "post-whoring" and "free posts" from members trying to pump up their post counts.
We also have a 50 post minimum requirement (or 6 months membership) to post a new classified ad in the parts for sale forum. This was done to help reduce the potential of newly-registered scammers taking advantage of our members. Now they will have to post in the technical and racing forums to earn their post count, which may help turn them away.
Forums with disabled post-counting:
Introductions & Greetings
Signature Test Forum
Street Racing & Kill Stories
All Classifieds Forums
All Regional Forums
Basically, if it isn't a technical forum, the posts do not count in it.
