Why keep count?

Unread postAuthor: jrrdw » Sat Feb 03, 2007 4:18 pm

Just wondering, but why keep count of how many post a member writes?
Honestly it makes other members look at you differently, a great idea can come from a member who has 2 post just as easly as a member who has 1191 for instence. And besides, i like to talk about all kinds of idea's. Does that make me a "post whore"? That term kinda offends me a little, but not to much. I'm interested in how/what other members feel about keeping count of post?

You get an avatar upgrade with an increased post count round here and the general idea is a high post count indicates that someone has been around long enough to have at least absorbed a fair bit of information on the relevant topics.

Anyone who posts for the numbers should be shot.



W00t! +1 postcount!!1!!!1! :D


*BANG*!

Not a poll, interested in what others think about it. A high count can get you called a "post whore". Post whoreing vs discussing a topic, how can you determen the differance?

Post length usually.

A post saying "WOW! Sweet cannon dude!" is less beneficial to the community than a decent critical response and could be called blatant spam.

However the person who made the cannon will still appreciate the positive response on their work and there tends to be a correlation of better cannons attracting proportionally more of those.

Something which is of negligible benefit while not being crap enough for a mod to delete is what I'd class as post whoring. Something like "Yeah I agree".

Post whoring is usually as Hotwired described; like when someone asks a question, and some noob or other says something like, "I don't know," or "Ask someone else, I''m not sure."

It's simple.

It's built into any forum software you can find because people like to know how much they post lol.

I don't mind it. I think people mostly look at the stars though... The stars come from post count anyways.
