Question about Statistics

Post by Kenmore »

Would it not be much better if the Posts/Topics counts did not include Hidden Forums ?

If you don't want them to count, there is a permissions option you could set so that they don't.

It shouldn't be forced on people.

Considering one might have an Admins' room and a Mods' room... why should members ask to get in hidden Forums, only because the total shown does not match what they see?

Then, you'll easily understand I'd prefer those posts not to be showing openly. :idea:

sorry, but who would make itself the work to count the amount of shown posts and topics with the total amount of them shown in the statistics :roll: . Plus you could always tell asking members that those are from the staffroom.

yes but advertisers adore higher post counts (and member counts) so who really cares if a couple of obvious idiots think they can get into the admin board?

you can just turn postcounts off for that forum anyway IIRC.
