    Problem with this Forum

    I think that having that post count thing is really BS and wrecks the quality of this forum...

    People just post really useless posts with 4 -8 words with one of being definitly lol just to increase their post count!

    lol i guess thats the type of posts you get when most of this forum is filled with 13 year olds...

    Just a thought... :lol:

    No hard feelings :flip:

    Most of the people here with high post counts are not 13, we just post from work and such. Also according to a recent survey in Community, the huge majority of this forum is in the 17-27 age group.

    Taking away post count is a poor idea for many reasons. Very few people actually care much about post count, and it is helpful in many ways, especially to moderators.

    Didn't we just have this thread like a week ago? It should stay it only has power if you let it. Your new so you may not know this, but we look at quality not quantity here. Just because Ash has 10K posts doesn't mean he rules the roost.

    I'm used to message boards that do not include a post count.
    • I agree that post counts are meaningless.
    • If you think not having post counts would in any way reduce the number of meaningless posts, you obviously don't know very much about message boards. I can tell you from personal experience that message boards without post counts produce just as much fluff as this place. :)

    Anyone wanna see my collection of Hello Kitty animated GIFs?

    I apologize to you all. My parents taught me to always try something before I decided whether I liked it, and I forgot that lesson today.

    As penance, I'm heading down to Ryogoku later on to lick a sumo wrestler.

    Durf, I hear Sumo's taste just like chicken. Is this true? [/meaningless post to boost post count and be more 1337]

    I think the problem with this forum is that people don't use the search function or look past the first page to see if what they're going to make a thread about something that hasn't been mentioned 20 million times

    I think we all know the answer to this question.

    *looks around for Satrina*

    *counts number of words in post*

    Cool. That's like 3 or 4 meaningless posts right there. I can take a break for a few days now. :drool:
