Word Count - Get users to write longer postings
I just saw "Word Count" from Kasper in the Addon-Repository. Thanx for the work. I wondered if it might motivate users to write longer postings. I know that doesn't mean the content is better. But Vanilla is a very fast forum, where users can post without a page reload. So for example in a lot of my threads users tend to use it almost like a chat or - coming more close - as a shoutbox.
I had a funny idea. Expect the Word-Count Button to glow or change color, when it reaches a certain amount of characters. For example 500 or 1.000. Might be an interesting experiment i haven't seen so far.
I'd install it soon and test if this will lead to longer articles. If you have any feedback, drop it here.
