Idea ... ...

An idea - why not have the number of posts in brackets beside the author - I'm hugely sceptical for first/only posts and, like eBay, we can immediately see if someone has posted 1, 5, or 105 posts.

The feature you suggested was actually in place some years ago but was removed and replaced with the "click here to see all reports by this author" link as part of making the code as high-speed/low-drag as possible. Displaying the author's report count required an SQL query every time a report was read. Considering FRs are read on average 5000 times per hour 24x7 that was a lot of additional load on the server.

er.

I think the OP was talking posts in here, not FRs

in here, you can click on a posters name and in their stats there is the post count and joining date.

...but you don't need to, because it's stated under their 'join date' to the top right of each of their posts!!!!

I was talking about field reports - and understand reason (server load).

Cheers.

Be really good if it told you where someone was located too.
