I was just wondering why post counts don't count on trivia threads.

The general idea is that the posts are so lacking in substance and so easy to make that people would just spam it up in there in order to increase their post count. :P

They don't count because the trivia section is a game section and most of the time game sections have them turned off to prevent postcount +1 threads. This is a guess on my part, however.

If I can add n_n,the reason they don't have a post count for trivia in my opinion is because trivia is generally games.You know simple games,some just involving four characters.Some members might spam there to increase their post count heaps,so to prevent that and only use trivia for enjoyment,they made it not count to your postcount :3.

That's not adding anything.

Since the question has been answered, I will close this, as any discussion of the topic will be in vain.
