I had been curious as to why post count is valued by some. I'm sure there are folks here that have been lurkers around here long before they registered or posted.

Around here I haven't heard a peep about post counts. I don't think it really matters, here. I've seen some boards where it's coveted, whether the posters admit it or not, especially boards with ranking systems, however meaningless they are.

I would be one of those. I don't really post a whole lot, I mainly browse and chime in here and there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Having a big post count doesn't make you ace.........however it helps to look as one.

Don't be. I think there are several folks here with way more than me..... Not only that.. there were two forum reformats where posts were lost... I think I have probably made more like 15-16k in here over the past 5 years... but Ivan, Tully, and several others had me beat by a mile. Not that it matters.... I think what you say is more impotant than how many times you say anything... I have seen guysn in here since 2001 with under 1000 posts.. but everytime the do post it is relevant.

BTW DKoor.. it was your sig that inspired my new one... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I think there are some who post several times a day on this and other forums that add little to the discussion. Then there are others who, with a few words or sentences, add volumes. Post counts mean little more than pointing out a person with a lot of time on their hands. That certainly isn't aimed at Bearcat. I've enjoyed most of what he has written here.

Oh no, now we have a caste system on fireeking forums for crying out loud!! I guess my "social rank" here is not all that high up, though I signed up with the first 200 hundred or so way back when.

My post count would be way higher but they had a big crash about three years ago and it zero'd many people out. Plus I posted under "mortoma1958" for about a year until I figured out my password. Took a while until I cracked my old password. Could not get it back by birthday because I had put in a fictious birthday back when I first signed up. Around 2004 I had 3 or 4 thousand posts on here before the original count got erased. I had about 500 under mortoma1958 and of course I have now forgotten the password to that one!!

I just cut and paste everybody else's poastings, and I score big. Its easy. You too can have 5,000 poasts in no time.

I felt pretty chuffed when I hit 100 posts!

After that it was pretty anticlimactic.

But I agree, postcount doesn't count.

There are allot of m8s here that lost all their post counts several times over the last four or five years. You see these m8s with three, four, five thousand post counts? They have all lost two or three thousand or more from forum glitches, shutdowns & repairs\upgrades.

It would stand to reason that a mod should have an inflated post count, as they have to do maintenance posts, as well as personal posts.

To quote a known idiom:

"It's the Quality, not the Quantity."
