It seems that information regarding a user's posting history disappeared recently.
What's the deal ?
Previously, in-between a user's name, avatar and other info, to the left of a post, you would find the number of posts of that user. Not anymore. I don't know if there's an intention behind that. I can envision some. For instance, maybe the forum designers don't want users to judge other users based on their (presumably too low) number of posts . But then ... why leaving the "rank" system ? A "stranger" is still below an "old hands" in number of posts.
More importantly, when going on someone's profile, you can access the history of posts of that user. This is quite convenient, as I often link to older posts. Sometimes, using the Advanced Search tool isn't that useful (for various reasons). But sometimes I remember the author of a post (not just when it's me) and I can thus look up posts until I find what I'm looking for. Not anymore.
Is there a reason why this posting history functionality was removed (and a reason why the removal wasn't done properly) ?
