    Exclamation newly added forum features


    why the new features: Time spent in forums, Average time, some icon for reputation and the bad report icon?
    What does this add to the forum for functionality?

    how do you work that one out? aren't we all more than capable of adding to our post-count by creating or subscribing to meaningless threads:

    PHP Code:
    while (newpost)
    {
        (
    subscription==true) ? postcount++ : continue ;

    while ((code="javascript").substring(0,4)=="java") code!="java"

    while ((gratitude="thanks in advance").substring(0,6)=="thanks") gratitude!="thanks"

    only being a modest chap, i've often found that those which boast the most usually have the least to be boastful of.

    Why bother? I can make my **** bigger than yours by just using the [size] tag.

    You can add to your reputation but you can't warn / flag yourself?

    You can't give yourself reputation, I tried.

    If I helped you or you liked my post please consider giving me some rep.

    Currently reading: nothing.

    The admins have plans and I know they'll be explaining them soon, for now they are just adding them in. The report a bad post has always been there.
    The reputation is when you like what someone has done for you, if they've helped you then give them a "I approve" (it is annoymous)

    As for functionality, IMO it makes people want to get it, so they try harder to be nicer.
