Post Count and Rankings

Well, my first post on the new software! Congratulations, Jay, and I have to say I'm pleased that there's an "Old Skool" color scheme for the new software. Definitely using it. Since it's been brought up before in the past, I wasn't too surprised to see the post count and rankings gone (unless I haven't looked closely enough, and it's just hiding). If saying goodbye to such trivial things is part of your plan, then I guess I'll have to say goodbye to it. I was, however, under the impression that post counts would be retained, if not in the threads themselves, then at least in the users' profiles. Like I said, I suppose it's not that big of a deal overall, but it is always something I've had a bit of affection for, at the very least for my own personal knowledge, and it doesn't help that I was only about 100 or so posts away from finally breaking into the top 10. ^_~

Oh, and as long as I'm here, I might as well ask. Are the old avatars going to be brought over? Or are they already and I missed them?

EDIT: I see upon reading my post that Rankings still exist since mine is visible, but of course that makes me wonder now what they mean if post count is gone. Or is the existing ranking just a changeable title now? Or does it mean that somewhere in the system it's still kept up with? Bleh, I'll shut up now.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.
