It seems as if the posting score is no longer functioning. Is that actually the case?

Posts in General Discussion aren't added to your postcount.

Why does the number of posts you have seem to matter to so many people?

I hadn't even realized at first that my post count wasn't going up when I was here until after I read Evo explaining it somewhere. It was just recently that I realized post counts do go up in the Politics forum.

While it's often a bunch of bickering the subject matter is usually more serious than here in GD.

It gives you a rough idea of how involved a person is in the forum.

In a previous version of PF, there were little titles under people's member names that also reflected certain "levels" of post counts. I guess people considered it a badge of honor or something.

I'm not sure either why posts in Politics count. I thought as a subforum of GD they wouldn't count. Russ_Watters must have lobbied for that one. :biggrin:

I do not understand why posts in Philosophy aren't subtracted from the total count.
