I like the addition of number of posts stat to commenter
Members who have been around a long time build up reputation. But many of the posts may be "I bought one" or other not helpful posts - maybe to reach the next "level" (which I also have a problem with).
But new, energetic members may have a low reputation level but also have a low number of posts. Adding the number of posts will help show the helpfulness of some of these helpful but low reputation level members, while their reputation continues to grow.
This is not perfect - some members gain reputation from the deals they posted. Adding the latter stat to a comment is not that useful, since we're dealing with comments....
However, less useful is adding the number of posts next to the OP of a deal - like you started today. The addition is somewhat dubious. And the small icons next to the stats for the number of posts and the reputation are SMALL - making it hard to figure out which is which. I think the reputation should come FIRST like in the past - not last / second like from today's change. A better stat, instead of number of posts for the deal OP, may be the number of deals posted.
Again, it is problematic to gauge "quality" roughly with a ratio of reputation to deals posted or ratio of reputation to number of posts, because reputation comes from both reputation given to deals and to comments. However, I welcome the addition of stats - but preferably the number of deals next to the deal OP, AFTER the reputation, instead of using the number of posts for a DEAL.
EDIT: I also want to know how user settings will affect the appearance of these stats. Currently, in the Privacy Options, a user can choose to not display (hide) its reputation level.
Showing the number of posts without the reputation level of a commenter - really lowers the value of the first stat. A "spammer" type commenter can then look good with a high number of posts, but hide the reputation level which would expose the lack of usefulness of those comments.
Likewise, IF you add the option to turn off the display of the number of posts (like for reputation), that allows an old member with a high reputation level, but lots of spam posts to also hide that.
You should not have one without the other. Any privacy option to hide one should hide both. Or just remove this privacy option altogether. The user can still protect individual privacy details in the Public Activity Stream. I personally find it suspicious when a commenter chooses to hide his reputation level - makes me wonder why - casts a shadow on what he says.
(I am glad that display of reputation is different than the settings for the Public Activity Stream, where there is granularity in individual settings.)
EDIT: Regardless, I try to take each comment and deal on the surface, on its own merits.
But this will help newly registered users, who sometimes get discriminated against, e.g. their opinions are discounted, just because they haven't built up their reputation level yet. Seeing the ratio of reputation to other stats will help....
