Hey guys,

this isn't exactly a suggestion, it's more like an opinion. I know linkz put a lot of work into the current Forum Stats, and I know he prolly won't change them at all, so this is just a random thought of mine.

Anyways, sometimes I browse through several forums and see Forum Stats like these:

In my opinion, those are looking more attractive like our current. You see prefixes of groups (e.g. "News", or "Galaxy", "Admin", "Staff", "Leak", etc.) and got a colored notification for new threads. The other stats (like "Forum with most posts" etc.) are nice but not mandatory.
I just think that it's nice to look at, to check back for new threads/posts and that stuff.

Am I the only one who thinks like that?

This is a plugin, called ProStats, it's free but causes a huge load of queries on the server. Makes the site slow.

I know what it is and what it causes.
It's just that it's looks better.
Our current Forum Stats are a bit.. well.. plain, imo.

Looking better is another thing, speed is other thing.

We've had those stats already in earlier times, and the forum speed was fine.
I'm not asking for the advantages and the disadvantages of those stats, I know them. We all do.

Nay. I know that this plugin slows down the site, but those stats just look better, and I'm not asking for an implemenation of this plugin here, I just wanna know if I'm the only one who thinks that they're just looking better :noh:

I too think they're better but after implementation, forget about speed :noh:
