Remove post count from post profiles

Question

I see that Forumer has undergone some changes recently where by the post profile (the avatar and badges etc to the left of posts) has been tweaked a bit and I'd like to suggest that what we currently have is great, but I think a way to make the profile here slightly smaller would be to remove the post count.

Post count is a pretty boring / pointless metric really. Reputation gives somewhat of an insight into how popular and respected the person is on the site, but post count is just a number that goes up and maybe sometimes down.

It can still be seen on a persons full profile, do we really need it next to all posts too?

Why 25 years?

By that time the fad of removing peoples post counts will be gone and we’ll be back to normal. 
 

(it was actually a joke based on an arbitrary timeframe - who knows where we’ll be in 25 years? I don’t.)

In 25 years forums won't exist. We'll all communicate via our minds.

Or we'll remove avatars next...?

Wouldn't that be a change. 😛 I love not having post counts on the posts - it's arbitrary and annoying.

Concur. I don't see the reason to have post count there either. Maybe also bumping up the members title and subsequent content maybe 15 or so px as well. Deep six the extraneous <br> that's there.

FWIW: Would look like this:
