I think it would be nice if under your username it showed the total number of posts you had posted, not just 100+, 500+, and 1000+. We clearly have enough space for it, so why doesn't the total number of posts you've posted show instead of just 100+ etc? If there's room for 1000+, why can't we have the fact that someone has posted 237 posts displayed?

No. Don't support.

The post count is like this to prevent competition between Scratchers and/or bragging. I think we should keep it the way it is.

That's exactly why they rounded it down (which actually takes more code).

If one user had 121 (just a fandom number) and one had 498, then the user with 498 posts could comment “I HAVE 498 POSTS YOU SUK”.

New “fix the block” round coming soon. In the meantime, here you go.

35. Show exact post count of other users

The reason that post counts were made “fuzzy” in the first place was to de-emphasize the importance attached to the post count - to prevent spamming for post count. We don't want people focusing on “the numbers” - but rather working to make quality posts that encourage meaningful communication. I see no real benefit from making it easier to see the exact number.
As a result, this thread should probably be closed.

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.
