Default Are we at a stage where post count is not significant anymore?

Just remembering when new ISH started up and everyone was racing to get the highest post count. That or a least stay on the first page. There are no real outstanding post whores anymore. Looks like we're finally out of the stage where quality exceeds quantity.
Think there are still the post whores out there? Have you noticed where you fall on the post count board?

Well, I have two accounts and if you ad up the post count of both of them it barely exceeds 200. So I'm probably the opposite of a post whore. I mostly just read around, only posting if I think I can add to the thread

Default Re: Are we at a stage where post count is not significant anymore?

If you look at the first 2 or 3 pages of posters then MOST of them are good ones, but that's mostly because

1. those are the people who have lasted here without getting banned for acting stupid and

2. those people have been here longer and know whats accepted and looked down on so they've adjusted more

But i definitely see what you're saying because there's a lot of new guys who i'd listen to/take their opinions over some of the guys who have been here for years or have 5,000 posts

well it did say "GAME OVER" on it... what else could that mean but a very subtle murder threat?

and I could print screen and paste it but... meh no point.


jeez lighten up. dont take everything so personally. laugh a little. ISH is full of jokers. If I see your post rate level off to about 20 and you have good stuff, then I really will look at you like a good poster. i wont hold you past against you like Ced or RMWG

When it said Game Over, It meant stop playing with me...And I know when you first came on here, I bet your ppd was pretty high...You are at 10k...But yeah sure my ppd is going to decline alot because school is about to start back, the reason its been so high is because I havent really been doing any thing over the summer besides being online...I dont have a job right now so I just come on ISH to talk sports...

My goal is to get to 2,000 posts by the end of the summer, but after that, I'm back to my 2-3 post per day.

I wouldn't call myself a post whore, but I do want to be at the top tier of posters.

I am out to singlehandedly destroy the stigma of the post count.
