Post counts don't matter. I wouldn't give a shit if my count was reset to 0. In fact, it would be kinda fun to be a junior member again. [edit: your wish is my etcetera --will]

So any mod that reads this, feel free to reset my post count or do whatever you want with it.

That's essentially what it boils down to.

Yeah, new members probably look at title and will more readily accept the advice of a Forum King over a Junior Member. But the people that count remember what you've said and whatnot.

post count matters zilch. It's quality that matters although I'll admit that I didn't start seriously contributing around here until well after I registered. It's almost embarassing to look back at some of my n00bish posts.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

n00b.


Just kidding, pal.

I believe mikm said it best, that the people that count remember what you've said. I used to look at my post count, but don't really care anymore.

Spiral out, my friend. You will find your way back to yourself, we all will.
I'll be waiting, and shall see you on the other side...

*still crying about the lost llama*

more seriously, I never bothered learning what each rank meant in terms of post counts until after reading this thread; there's just too many other things to worry about, like the damned tree roots that managed to crack my foundation... might make my piggy bank go on a severe weight loss plan...

I might have just as many "wasted" bin posts as I do non-bin posts anyway - been hitting the 'count to a million' thread pretty hard lately.

Guess it goes to show the quality of the threads then.....


If a thread is moved into the recycle bin, post counts don't automatically get updated to reflect this. This only occurs when admin recalculate people's post counts. Which is what happened here - threads containing (OMG!!!!!!) 17 posts of yours had been moved to the recycle bin, and as such, was reflected in your amended post count.

Like my photography? Buy some here....

Post counts? I haven't looked at mine in like two years. Ever since they removed it from every post.

Yeah i dont look at mine much anymore, as mikm said it used to matter because people would take advice from Forum Kings and not other Junior Members most times.

Speaking of post count, "OMG!!!!!!!"

No wait, seriously, I don't even remember what title you get after X-num of posts. So, it don't quite matter to me much at all.

I asked earlier in the thread. Will graciously reset it for me. I'm sure a mod would be happy to do it if you asked.

I've never felt the need for a custom title. If you ask a mod, he might comply. Depends if the mod likes you and how many "favors" you are willing to grant

I'd think your registered date would have more impact than your post count, anyways. Look at those fools who registered back when the forum was a bebbeh back in 2000. That's alot of zeros.

Yeah. Kinda hard for me to believe I was around here in 2001. Then again, I was in the AVS forum almost exclusively.

When you become Forum King you win a night of intimate sexual ecstasy with Chev.

However, by "intimate sexual exstasy" he means bowing before the great Swollen Purple Helmet for 20 or so hours straight.
