WHY DO YOU WANT POST COUNTS??

SO YOU CAN SHOW OFF HOW 'LOYAL' YOU ARE TO WINAMP?

THE NUMBERS ARE IRRELEVANT - EMPTY VESSELS HAVE THE HIGHEST POST COUNTS

(not implying the late rm)

It's always been a competition of sorts i suppose. The ones less obvious at it are called post pumpers.

I use the post count to judge a users contribution. Now i see a name i don't know, i have to waste time looking at the profile to see if it's a newbie of one of those skinner people wondering into the GD forum.

Worse decision ever.

Why does it matter if someone is just trying to increase their post count, anyway? It's not like nobody can recognize that they're doing that, and it's not like everyone doesn't have the right to do it (well, not anymore).

And it's not like removing them shows whether they're a n00b or not, since the REGISTERED date is still there

Just 'coz I registered in Nov doesn't mean I haven't been here before. My previous account was Freya_Crescent but for some reason it's no longer here...

Yeah, but the post count is the same thing... it gives at least some idea of how new a member is. I'd say that the "registered" month/year shows more than the number of posts. I just don't see why they make such a big deal out of what number shows up under someone's name. Big deal *shrug* - like I said, WE know who just has a lot of posts because they post-pump... and who cares if they do? It doesn't get them a prize or anything, they just like to post. And some of the so-called "post-pumpers" around here are pretty darn fun people

Pixie, I'm not the post-pumping whore from NY. That title belongs to widdy's location section in her profile. Hehehe. And I'm from Texas. Completely different. And a virgin to boot!

Lots of love,
