Why Do People Care about their Post Count? - Page 7

post #121 of 146
Sunflowers, did you find out? Isn't it kind of like, designing a planet to figure out the ultimate answer to life the universe and everything, only to have it spew out "42" ?

Ahem. This thread was great fun and I want it back again.



Does anyone really know why people care about their post counts, free vodka not withstanding?

The one with the most posts wins.

I don't buy that, Kitty. I feel it is the quality of posts that counts, not the amount.
I would rather have one Godiva buttercream than 10 cheap ones.

I would never ever ever ever do that.

Why who else would give away an endless bounty of high-quality chocolate, vodka, compassion and advice.

I value your Kittiness.

Please note that I have seen the error of my ways.

The problem with saying that quality manners over quanitity in regards to post counts is that other members can't see "quality" in your stats. They nly see quantity, and while it is true that QUALITY does mean much more than quantity, that is hard to prove.

Post counts are a status symbol and for some a sign of membership. Your post counts say, "this person must know a great deal about this community." It also may say, "don't question me, I know what I've been talking about."

BUT, if I see a high post count and a very recent join date, I wonder why or how someone can accumulate 3,000 posts in 2 months and have 3 children (this is pulled from the farthest reaches of my buttocks and does not represent any ONE member here- cappeche?)

I probably take those people less seriously?
I do value the long time members here much more even if I usually disagree with them, no matter how many posts they have. I know they have been through many changes here at MDC and can offer great advice/knowledge.

Much better!

I want to put something intelligent and important here so that it's a meaningful post to follow potty diva's but.... I've got nothin'.

Yeah, maybe sometimes quantity is better.
Easier to read, too.
And a few shots of VV makes everything seem really deep and meaningful.

HK,
It doesn't matter what you post because you are one of those long timers with a HUGE post count that I take seriously. Thus, your pos WAS intelligent AND important
post #135 of 146
Awww thanx. That was sweet.
post #136 of 146
Hey, HK, I'm sweet, too!
post #137 of 146
I meant both of you!
post #138 of 146
Phew! I'd hate to fall from grace.

*sigh* Yet another stalker made.



(I hope she's not looking for anything deep and meaningful in my posts! : I might need to work on that... )
