Sorry if this has been requested or discussed before. I searched on the topic but didn't find any mention of it.
Other boards I'm on list poster's # of posts along with their screennames. This helps us differentiate newcomers from long time members. New folks are always welcomed, of course, but their opinions don't carry quite as much weight as more experienced posters. It helps highlight trolls, those with an ax to grind, or those who are just posting to advertise their own restaurant. Because I read the board regularly, I know whose posts are most valuable to me. But most people just pop in every once in awhile and don't know who might have many posts and who has just one. Yes, every opinion is valuable, but some folks just post to stir the pot. So to speak.
