View Full Version : so what's the real logic concerning no beans in cafe?

i was just thinking about it, because as far as I know, beans are just a measurement of how many posts you make. it does not mean whether you support people more, or if you ask questions more, or if you are smarter or dumber. all it means is total posts. why then, are beans not counted in the cafe? are posts in the cafe not posts? i don't see the reasoning here. i mean, its not like we're competing for beans in the support forums, now are we? cafe posts should be counted for beans, so then people know how much you're really on the forums, which is the sole reason for beans as I see it (and I know, they're for fun), or else, take out beans all-together.

but please, let's not get counted for beans only in support forums, but rather the whole forum.

*********GI-NORMOUS EDIT: hmmm, i'm actually getting beans every time i post in the cafe....is this something new, a bug, or what?

I've noticed that I've started getting more beans than usual too. A change in policy?

About 2 months ago when we upgraded the forum software we made the change. Now all posts, regardless of where they are made, receive beans.

No wonder my bean count has gone up :-)

I tend to contribute to the cafe far more than the other forums, and yesterday I noticed I had a lot of beans (more than I remember having when I last looked).

Now I know.

Thanks

PS Another bean with this post :-)

Says beans here too.
I love the whole coffee theme, it makes the forums unique and fun.

I just played around a little and discovered that when the profile is on top it says "beans" and when the profile is on the left it says "posts." I'll let ubuntu-geek know.
