I think that, as Dawn of Fantasy will go increasingly in popularity, you won't want to encourage people to post messages anymore, cause you'll have too much to read and will miss or won't be able to answer to all the interesting questions and suggestions.

I've never felt that either the post count or the title had a positive effect all in all.
Particularly, I don't like the hierarchic titles; there's no direct relation between the number of posts and the merit of the person. It only gives more merit to spammers and flooders.

In my opinion, there should be no such titles, and the post count should not show up on each post but should be hidden in the profile page, so that one can still know a bit better who he's speaking to, but it won't be as much a factor of pointless pride.

PS: To say the truth, I'm subject to such pride, but it's so stupid.

I agree, even if most of my posts have been less then 10 words.

Who will stop the FLOOD?

Today, a group of teenagers invaded Dawn of Fantasy's official forums and literally inundated it with one-line messages. The population is worried about the quality of its navigation through the forums, but we still haven't heard from the authorities. We will keep you informed of any progress on the situation, so stay with us!

Unfortunatly that's the case. The only way I can think to stop spam is to either ban about 10 people or just threaten them.

I don't think that just threatening them would do much, and banning 10 people is like taking a chunk of soon to be beta testers out... And look on the bright side of flooding... My rank is now leviathan
