If one of them had to go, which one would you want to keep?

Um... yeah. o.O Somebody else brought this up to me, so I thought I'd make a poll on it. Keep in mind that this is simply a poll, and the results will not in any way affect the community.

As for me, I'd rather keep postcount. What about you? XP

Ehh, I don't understand a word Butt Monkey is saying. -.-

For me, it's postcount! In some sort of way, you get reputation by your posts and reputation seems untrue. It'll be better to have 100,000 posts than 11 reputation squares.

I'd say postcount. I post very few posts anyway.

rep u ta tion n.

1. The general estimation in which a person is held by the public.
2. The state or situation of being held in high esteem.
3. A specific characteristic or trait ascribed to a person or thing: a reputation for courtesy.
4. A measuring unit counting the attempts to being <guess what?> ;)

I say both of them have to go, but if I choose one I keep rep. Not posts count since it seems most people are fighting about how many posts someone has.

Rep has to stay because postcount fuels bitter competition.

Postcount.

I made these posts through a time span of 1 year, and nothing can replace those memories.

If I had to choose ONE, I wouldn't. I'd pick neither to stay. They are both things on PC that were meant for members to feel good about themselves for people thinking their good, or just to know that you post a lot, but people have now turned these once enjoyable things into a competition. Spamming, posting in topics that aren't needed to be posted in, ect, help raise the members post count, so thats what they do. Begging for rep, is what members still do to this very day, which I find pathetic, really. You would only really beg for it, if you didn't have any confidence in yourself.

Now I've expressed my opinion, XD

I hate you. -_- You just had to post that before me.. Well, I agree 100%. ^_^ That's how I feel exactly on the current situation.

I think I'd want to keep the rep...Just because the postcount means nothing to me...

I like postcount. I don't know why, maybe it's because I nearly have the highest amount of posts....

Reputation, post count... take them both away it doesn't really matter to me...

Quality over quantity, they say...
Your reputation is worthless if you ask for it or if you see them giving you reputation for things like: "Oh I like your sig" ...

posts all the way! although i would rather had both XD post counts are how social, etc you are on pc, rep blocks are how many people decide to give you rep and to see nice little green things near to your name XD.

Post count for me, I rarely if ever get any rep that matters to me anymore...I.E. Just random annoying rep --;

If I had to choose one to keep, I'd keep post count. If you ask me, over the past year, rep has caused more problems than post count (anyone remember when someone made a new thread each day complaining about how some member was insulting them with the rep system? =\). Besides, rep isn't really important to me.

I vote for Postcount, I think it is more impotant than rep XD.

I'd rather keep both =P.
But if people hadn't of gotten so obsessed with rep, I'd have kept it. Now I'd rather have postcount, but I already clicked rep, so meh.

The point of reputation is to congratulate people on well thought-out posts, an admirable action taken by a member, or anything that really moves one and motivates them to give it out. Reputations are to give people a sense of accomplishment, whereas post count is a recorded number on how many posts you've racked up during your stay at PC.

Now if that don't sound one-sided, hehe...

Both XP

Post count. It provides more motivation. 11 pips, then there's hardly any visual proof of your hard work. Post counts are also more fun. ^.^ Rep, I could live without.

Doesn't matter to me. The rep points don't really matter to me, and they matter even less to me since I can't give any out (NIS won't let me T_T).

I don't see why your post count should account for your reputation. For personal use, I'd like to see how many I've made, but it doesn't have to a public thing.
