    I seen alot of people with high post counts here and you need post count to get bigger avatars and to give more rep pts. (no neg reps though :nono)

    Anyway, I saw one person "Sayako" who had 220,000 post count. I don't think it's fair that he gets all those posts just because he's a mod.

    So I think that if a post is good, it should count as several posts.

    Hmm.... well,
    If by Sayako you mean ﮎayoko, she's not a he nor a mod. And I think you mean 22,000 (slightly more reasonable amount yes :p) and she actually did post 22000 times.

    As for posts counting more.... that is what rep is for. Better posts get more reputation added to the user.

    EDIT: Very good. You gave reputation..... But click "I approve" instead of "I disapprove" next time :huh

    Something i have a problem with is the confo threads counting towards post coutns because most of them are pointless, single worded posts. I know its only small but there is some reward to be gained from havign a higher post count, so maybe they should be changed?

    Its unfair that someone can post 500 really good posts in the naruto section and someone can make 1000 single worded idiocies in the convo threads and get the reward sooner.

    And lots of Sayoko's posts are pointless spam :p

    on a related note, how the hell do you do the funky S?

    That was changed over a month ago, and retroactively changed by me personally a week ago. In other words, we agree. She lost a few thousand posts from that, it just happens that she posts a lot in other places too.

    Post counts are disabled in convos now. I never went in there anyway :p
    She was the most recent poster in the complaints section, so I copy and pasted the name.

    (I think you run "charmap" and look for it there)

    EDIT: Foiled again!

    oo, didnt know it had been changed, i asked a few times and nothing was done about it :p

    Oh and purple shirt guy..a post count is exactly that, a count of posts. The fact that one post should count as 2 or 3 or something is....daft. issues of subjectivity and programming apart.

    but still, how do you do the funky s? :p

    edit: thankin you kindly rez :glomp

    ^I'd show you how to fix the quote tags, but you'd probably neg rep me for it :wink

    Anyway, the point is that you can't program it to understand what is a "good post" and what is a "bad post"

    your a funny kid . . .

    no real further comment on these things couse their all untrue ;]
    wow, realy, and i bet all your 2100 posts are perfect, don't critic people on their posts because i get mine the way the forum works. . . =\

    the way you say "sayoko getting her posts" sounds kinda offensive, and im not a mod, you make it sound like i asked admins to add posts, that's ridiculous . . =\

    Nope, but if you want to play that game i could always point out that if every single one of my posts was pointless spam, it still wouldnt scrape your number of the same :p

    If people post on this Forum just to see their post count get higher.... there missing the point of forums.. if you want to see your post go up.. it's probably better that you buy a self generating number generator to keep you happy... I think people complain and take the forum to seriously,, Come on...... get a grip

    *feels many a cold eyes staring at him* :ninja

    I've been here quite awhile, although nowhere near as long as Moe and Celly :amuse

    I'd like to think before found the convo threads that my posts actually had substance. Just be a bit more active in the forums and getting posts shouldn't be a big deal. It gets easier if you don't think of the forum as a place to just get posts, but as a community where people exchange thoughts and opinions and just plain interact.

    PS...while I did get few (xD) of my posts from the convo threads, the general thrashing of them (as well as a few game threads :S) have lead to well over 3,000 post drop in my overall count :xp

    So..my number isn't as inflated as you'd think :wink

    it's ok you used me like an example, and posts don't count in the fc's, but i've been here for almost a year now, what makes you think that i posted in the same threads/area's as the last months, well lemme just tell you i used to post in threads like the convo's when the postcount we're still activated there, from convo 1 to 30 it's sayoko, sayoko, sayoko, sayoko, . ..

    Yay for Sayoko!! :dance


    But yes, I can only imagine the amount of posting she did. It's just mind-boggling. :S

    Although...not all posts in the Conversation Threads were spam. There are at sometimes very intellectual posts. Also, for the most part, it's not easy to make one word answers as there is a limit for the amount of characters in posts.

    I've seen lately people making posts like ; ''.....*smiley*.....'' . People can easily use one word posts by just adding ''......'' . =\

    Really?

    People actually post like that in the post-enabled forums? Well, that's pretty bad. I would, for one, never do that. I perhaps do that a few times in the convo threads, but only because I know that it's for fun and you don't get posts there anymore. Although, I usually tend to take the threads seriously when I get posts for it.

    Um you mean Sayoko and it would actually be a she. And here's an opinion: I think the forum should have a grammar system so it's not as difficult to read some of this mindless garble. This isn't directed at anyone but I've been noticing alot of shitty mistakes and other things that were learned in 4th grade. It's an eyesore.

    This thread has become a question of posts worth more than one post to how successful Sayoko is at posting...xD

    And purpleshirtguy, it seems have you more than 220, 000 posts now. :p
