Post count in the General Games section
I've noticed over the past while that posting in the General Games section of the website no longer counts toward a user's post count. I was just wondering if I could get some feedback as to why that decision was made (or if it was always like this and I just never noticed), because I think it's a little silly. I think we can all agree that this forum is generally aimed at fans of Japanese stuff who like BL/slash/whatever. Of course, there's discussion of western stuff too, but Japanese media are often the focus of our discussions. Video games, I believe, are a big part of that equation, and not just BL or Otome games. I like being able to discuss games (primarily Japanese games) on this website, because not only can I discuss a game I like, but I may also be able to add commentary related to a slash pairing that I like in the game, which I would never do at the general video game websites I visit.
I really don't understand why posting in the General Games section does not count towards post count. Generally speaking, the only good reasons for this would be because a. that section of the website is not relevant to the primary topic of the website (and if general anime and manga discussion are relevant, then I believe general video games should be as well) or b. that there is a lot of spam on that section of the forum and to discourage that, post count was removed. There is no spam in the general games section at all. It's quiet, but active enough to be kept around.
I would like to suggest that post counting should be either added or reinstated to the General Games section of the forum.

Hi there, I don't remember for sure if that section has "Post Count" counted or not in the first place. So let me check on it first.
EDIT @commonlogic ; I just checked... it wasn't counted in the first place for all the section under "Fans' Non-Yaoi/BL Interest" but I can have a discussion with the staff on this issue... and probably revise some sections for Post Counts since we have changed a few sections in the forum in the past.

Thanks @aarinfantasy. I figured it'd probably been originally like that, but since posts count in both the general anime and manga sections (I assume this was changed later), then I think the general games forum should as well. Thanks again for looking in to this.

I had put this issue off for quite a while and didn't discuss this with the staff after all, but went ahead on my own to decide because they are having a lot to do lately with more major issues.
So here are the forums that I have changed from no post counts to Post Counted now:
- Fans' Non-Yaoi/BL Interest
- Claim points (tempo)
- Voting Booth
And just a note for those who wants to know which forum still doesn't include post counts:
- Community Café
- One Stop Shop's Auction
- One Stop Shop's Request
- Contests and Trivias
