On the update, members can only see their own warning status bar on their profile. In posts they have been removed, the thinking behind this was to relieve possible stress certain members might have while posting, because their warn status is right there after each post they make. Staff will still be able to see every members warning status on every forum post that's made.
I say keep the warn indicator there. If some get stressed over their warning level showing (only to them) then they should put more thought into what they're posting before they post it.
The other idea was also to remove "post count" from the post view, but keep it in the profiles. This would go a long way to making posts more equal, an opinion by a member can't then be based off the post count and time span of contribution.
I was against this idea, but I think its fair to at least poll it!
So, what do you guys think?
PS: Unless there's an overwhelming vote to remove post counts from posts, we'll keep it.
IMO, I think removal of the post counts would be a good idea. Far too many times people have been ridiculed and their contribution discounted simply because they have a low post count.In that regard, the join date should also be removed.
