Anyone noticed how Vanilla shows post counts, or any other thing as 1.6k, instead of 1,616 for posts or topics.

Any chance someone will made this an add-on for xenForo?

Thanks.

Interesting idea.

Exactly which numbers should be displayed like this? All forum statistics? Member post counts too?

How should million numbers be displayed?

1.6m for 1,600,000 presumably?

And what about rounding? Should 1,699,999 be displayed as 1.6m or 1.7m?

Counts are rounded.

So your posted assumptions are correct. 1,699,999 should be displayed as 1.7m and 1,711,111 should be displayed as 1.7m.

This should be applied to all forum statistics.
