Should we vote on how important they are? What they represent?

BUZZZ! We have already been through this. The post counts should stay for reasons you will figure out as you become a non Newbie.

Sometimes with age comes wisdom and that's why I went with "respect for my post count elders."

They were important at first. Then I realized they are just a benchmark. Kinda like lines on the wall showing you as you grew up.

uhoh...the last time I saw a thread like this, threads "inrease your post count here" started popping up and the PTB took the post count off the board (visably). Then again, that's when LT started "posting without posting." ...and the cycle continues...

Make your time. All your post counts are belong to us.

Aslong as Israel exist ETH will have more post then me [>]:)]. Too bad when you post a certain ammount you can't be elidgeable for a cheaper board membership or something. [+]:D]

Sure, or I wouldn't be posting this, LOL Seriously, they are of no significance. You quickly learn who is FOS and who is knowledgeable, without looking at a post count.

You know you're in trouble when you are used as an example in a poll on post counts! "You see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream things as they never were and ask, 'Why not?'" Who said that? Eric The(Careful!)Hun[>]:)]

Actually, it was George Bernard Shaw. Bobby Kennedy ripped him off and changed the quote a bit, and his adulatory audience continues to lisp and prance about saying it was [u]his[/u]!

Yes and no. While they do tell who has been active on AR15.com, they don't tell if someone is knowledgeable on AR's or other weapons.

Yes, I know if my post count is going up to fast I am spending to much time on this website. [;)]

I remember when we got rid of the post count... man, that pissed a LOT of folks off! I could go either way with it. I am friends with the names, not their post count. Tyler

I stated before that I demanded reperations for the "lost" post-count when the board switched over. [:D]

"Well how else can you measure yourself against other golfers?"
Link Posted: 5/5/2002 8:44:10 PM EDT
I wanted to add that there is another forum I visit (not gun related) where the "owner" hands out additions to your post count as rewards for making him laugh, or making a good point, or helping him squash someone he disagrees with. I was banned from that site over two years ago. [:D]

Have we factored in the Ebay effect? For a while, I was buying all I could just to boost my rating, it lets people know you're not a fly-by-night type person and that you're established in the community. I do look at post counts and I do think they play some role on a board where everyone is anonymous to some extent. I'd be pissed if they were taken off also, but not because I "flaunt" my PC to newbies, but it informs me of who I'm talking to.
Link Posted: 5/5/2002 9:00:41 PM EDT
Naw, I don't talk much in real life either

I just noticed that EricTheHun has over 7,000 posts. Is there anyone with over 10,000 yet?

Well for some reason, I trust the sellers with high post counts in the equip exchange, while I shy away from the low post counts, its almost like feedback, but who am I to talk, at least I broke 100!!!!!
