Not only are stars gone and with it the drive to post for them...
But also when you click on members the list does not start with the most prolific posters.
This is a huge paradigm shift for many who found these features in the old forum a driving factor in posting for volume.
I found it funny to read the threads about stars today one containing a comment about how one warrior had "worked hard" as they tried to obtain more stars.
Don't get me wrong... I have an ego too (obvious statement) but overall I think this new format where rewards and accolades are bestowed by warriors rather than by posting volume will be quite beneficial to the overall quality of the content contributed to the Warrior community.
