That's still a lot of counting. And then only I would know when the euphoric dubs have been reached

I think it would lead to spam, if people were to roll for dubs and trips. These aren't really the type of forums for that, to be honest. It doesn't really serve a purpose, except for bragging rights in the end, and there's no real reason to have the posts numbered.

It seems stinkyjim does not understand the euphoric glory of getting dubs. His post shall henceforth be dismissed.

How is that a lot of counting? (#pages)*10 +(#posts on current page). Easy as pi(e). Or did I miss something?

Anyway, I don't even know what a dub is. Can you enlighten me on that items true nature and the reason for its orgasmic effect on you?

Apparently a link from 4chan's FAQ's is not allowed.

Anywho..dubs are when a post's number ends in repeating digits. It's a wonder of maths, and is something to be joyous whenever one "check's em" or states a rule for if they get the dubs. Even better are the trips, which are three repeating digits at the end, and so on.

It truly is a work of the gods.

Ah. Dubs and trips from doubles and triples. I get it.
.. so what do you call the sixth trip of a thread? A beast? \\m/

But now I also understand stinkyjims stand better, though I don't totally agree. Spam would only increase slightly. However, putting even more information on the profile/post box on the left might tamper its sober, clean interface, not to speak of the confusion the number of post in the thread would cause when placed directly next to the individual post count.
