How important is this to you and what does it do for you? I myself don't care about it one way or another.
Post your feelings and lets see how important this is to you.
Thanks

in the beginning I thought it was interesting...you could actually tell who had been around a while and who was new (yes I am aware that there is a join date on your post as well) ...who was really contributing to the site by posting tons of helpful information...now, with all of the self-professed "post whores" it's meaningless as far as I'm concerned...I don't think we should get rid of it...I just don't think we should read much meaning into the numbers.

John, I agree with you 100% its all a game.
I would rather have few post that mean something than a few smilies or one word replies

Agree, John, but I think that any attempt to equate numbers of posts to actual contributions would also be meaningless. I know I could name dozens of members with in excess of 1,000 posts who have yet to make any significant contribution (in MY opinion; others are certainly free to disagree). That said, the site is still worthwhile, and actually finding content not all that difficult if you don't mind filtering out the chaff.

Join date would be sufficient as far as I'm concerned...

MrJimi, I'm not sure if it is considered a "game" by all...
I guess for some individuals, having a high number is important.
For me, it is simply that... a number, and nothing else.

Does that number translate into a "post whore"?
Who cares.

Just like you, I also enjoy having posts that mean something, and helping others with information when I am able.
But sometimes simply interacting with others by posting short responses is part of the fun of being here. :clap

<shrug> Apparently you think that welcoming other people to the forum is not important... I don't see how having several posts in the "Introduce Yourself" section is a bad thing. I typically welcome people and kill some time before work while having a cup of coffee and getting ready for the day. I personally enjoyed the greetings I received from Gary (moderator), txsporty, debster, and others...

Is it important for others to know that a good portion of the threads you have started are in the "Politics and Religion" section of a motorcycle forum? :laugh

Don't mind the total count but I do see a lot of familiar names saying "welcome" to new members. Funny I don't always see the same names on other threads so much.

There seems to be a lot of members who just post to "have a chat". Again I don't mind but they seem to be the same people who moan about things!

Still the best Sporty website on the planet, though.

The post count is probably more a reflection of the value the poster places on his/her personal opinions than anything else. Some have been on the forum for only a few months, yet have over 1,000 posts; while others have been on for several years and have post numbers in the 100s. Of the currently 4,856 active members, the bulk of the post repsponses on any given day are made by the ususal suspects, 20 or 30 or so members who feel the need to comment on everything. It seems that most of the members drop in occasionally, check to see if there is anything of interest, and then go about their lives. All in all the count is about as meaningful as it is to list every mod, add-on, chrome blingy, or other doodad we load up on our motorcycles.

I agree with JohnT here, an example that always sticks in my mind is chrishajer, he hasn't been a member very long at all, but has got oodles and gobs of posts, I've read most of his posts and they are almost all relevant to the motorcycle technical areas, in fact, I was actually surprised to see him make a few posts in the P&R section. It's not the quantity of your posts, it's the quality. Now, for myself, I like to think I've contributed at least somewhat, to the motorcycle relevant threads, but, as Klown said, sometimes, you get tired of the same questions. Also, I think welcomes are important, if I'm online I'll go there. I tried once to get "all caught up" and found how nearly impossible that was, so I decided to quit that

I think the ratio of count to time as a member is interesting. Personally, I am amazed at the people who manage to crank up their count to over 1,000 after only a month or two on the forum. Me, I read almost all the threads, but if somebody has already said what I would say, I move on. I guess I should just chime in with a smiley and quote somebody and say "right on" but, as David Byrne said, "If you have nothing to say, say nothing at all."

I suppose it is a good reflection on what people are like in person, there are those that love being the center of attention, and those that prefer to watch the calamity from the edges.

I think the count should only increase in threads that have to do with motorcycles.

Didn't we have a reputation system at one time? I remember there were issues with that. I could care less about post count. I am here to take in all the info, not re-dish it out, I don't even know how I got over a 1000 posts.

why
18th October 2006, 18:52
Hmmmmmmmmmmm, didn’t the discussions about the Rep thing start this way?:rolleyes:

Why are there so many threads on changing the Forum?

Just a few thoughts/questions…

Why does it matter?

Why are we changing something that doesn’t seem broke?

Why cant we laugh and share when it’s fun? (Like we do now?)

Why cant we help and support if needed and we want to? (Like we do now?)

Why can’t we just enjoy the bits we like and ignore the bits we don’t? (Like we do now?)

They are just numbers no more, no less. Those that don’t like the numbers can ignore them (honestly you won’t hurt the little numbers feelings, they don’t have feelings!)
Those that like them can look at them…

I have occasionally seen an excellent post by a member I haven’t seen posting before who has very little posts, but their posts have been worthwhile and informative. I have also seen drivel posted by whores who seem to have nothing better to do (You don’t have to read it!) The numbers can also give you an idea about this kind of member too.

So some people post lots of “Welcomes” to new members, well thank God for that because some other members never welcome anyone. And as any member will tell you getting a welcome isn’t a bad thing and certainly helps the Forum.

Just imagine that Human beings disagreeing about something! Who would have thought it? Next thing you know we’ll be going to war over it! They are JUST NUMBERS!!!!!!!

Voted: Don't care.

I check in a couple of times a day, and read most of the new posts in the sections I'm interested in. I do contribute when I can but usually someone else has already got it covered by the time I come around. I'll only post a follow-up if I have more to add or if I disagree with one (or even all) of the responders.

Some of the better forums I've been on have no post count or rating system, and they are just fine.

Yeah it would be cool to have a really high post count (and I do on some forums) but I know that at the rate I post it will be a LONG time comin', so I don't worry about it.

It is what it is.

It dosent matter to me at all. If a person sticks around long enough they will know who knows what they are talking about and who dosent. I agree with Pquirk about the introduce yourself postings. I saw one a couple of days ago welcoming a member who had been active on the forum for over a year. That is where the post whoring is taking place. Dont get me wrong getting new members is great, however it sucke to look at 10 pages of new posts, and 2 whole pages are welcome messages from one person. I quit replying to introduce yourself threads because there are simply too many of them for me to reply to all of them (I have dial up). So welcome to all noobs that I didnt say hello to!!!!!

Ahh Flatty ... g'day hairy man ... I finally got those Indian and UL motors out..



As for post count..... when we started it was a small tech biased site and it sorta meant a bit but when we started gettin so many non sporty threads it sorta lost it...
That's been addressed by takin most of them of the count list, although I don't know which is which and don't care..

The thing I personally find a bit annoying is that we have guys givin out info which is sometimes incorrect or ill-informed but because they have highish post counts a lot of newer members will believe what they've said...

Basicly it's like life ... some people prattle on and say little worthwhile while others sit back and say what needs to be said when it's nescessary.... but just because you're in either category doesn't mean that either everything or nothing you say is relavent.

My personal count has slowed down a lot in the last few months as I have other interests in my life and I'm sorta gettin a bit weary of the same old questions and tend to only step in if needed or asked.... I wrote Jetting 101 for those reasons, I was answering the same questions over and over and over and over again...

I don't care about the post count. I'm a fairly new rider and can't say I've contributed much as far as helpful information, but have learned alot about my bike from this forum. I don't pay any attention to the post counts from others, but have gotten a feel for how much they know from the content of their posts and how others respond to them.

It doesn't really mean much to me except now I have another post to my credit. I do find it handy sometimes when someone makes a statement that seems off the wall or trying to cause some trouble. If the post count is low or the first one it could be a novice or a troll.

Maybe it is written here somewhere but do the number of post directly relate to the number of priviledges you have? I started a thread the other day, it got moved to a more suitable category according to the PM i got. I tried to get into that category but don't have the juice to view it :doh WTFO?

I think its kind of fun to track from time to time. If someone doesn't like it don't look. Seems pretty fair.

I like seeing my stars change color. That 3rd gold took a while. As I approach "tool" status I'm less rabid, 5 black will be cool. At first I thought a black star was a reprimand from Bert. I'm gonna go welcome a few folks! LOL Matt

It's funny that you posted this thread because I actually got to spend a couple hours one time on the forum and I was kind of shocked to see all those people who have thousands of posts had already been on-line but after a left, they stayed on-line. So I am guessing that in order to get thousands of posts in such a short amount of time, you have to either have no life and spend all your hours of the day on here or you are independently wealthy and have nothing better to do.

I'm not knocking this forum because I love it, but I use it more for information and secondly for entertainment --- cause let's face it, there are some really hilarious things posted on here.

Personally I'd like to see posts to Intros excluded from the count and have them not show up on the New Posts page. I use to read every one and post a welcome to each because its nice to greet new members and have them feel welcome. I still read the Intros (by going through the Intro page) but I seldom post a welcome because I've seen times when someone posts to 20 Intros in ten minute, and that drives the New Posts to other threads so far down that I don't see updates to threads that I'm actually following without going through 10-15 pages. Instead I bookmark those individual threads to stay current with new input. No big deal either way, but I would like to post welcomes without creating the extra baggage.
