    Re: Friday afternoon

    Do the chit-chat posts even count for that purpose? They used not to.

    Re: Friday afternoon

    It looks to add to the post count now when you post int he Chit-Chat forum. I remember prior to the upgrade this forum used to not count toward the post count, but maybe that changed (not sure intentionally or not)

    Maybe let AJ know and decide if it is worth the hassle to fix that functionality with the knights?

    Tony, Peter

    It changed when we went from "qaforums" to "sqaforums" but I'm not sure it was intentional.

    I did point it out at the time. Guessing it's not worth AJ's time to correct.

    Re: Friday afternoon

    I dont see an issue with it. It allows people with low post counts to be social and build their posts so that they can PM and attach files.

    Re: Friday afternoon

    The theory behind it (which I agree is not a strong one) is that newbies should be "cut loose" only when they have participated in the technical forums, not just the "light-hearted" ones.

    Many people have post phobia and sections like this allow them to work thru it. The social aspect cant be over looked either. It make for a more pleasant forum.
