Honestly I don't know why people get so beat up about post count. Its not a bloody race. It seems to matter to some people though which I can't get my head around.

There are ways to bump your post count withought posting, its called scripting.

Xserver dids this a while back. He would have 20 posts than an hour later he would have 300.

Im not sure how its done but im sure there members here who have tried it.

I would hate to see a ranking system as I would greatly abuse it.

I think the ranking system would be abused too much. As much as the post count opens up the forum for spam, it does it's job in 'ranking.' Sure, a lot of people spam to get a higher post count but at the same time it is the same people who have been here a while, are always on nvnews, and are always willing to help someone out.

100% agree. Sure, i spam here and there, but come on, myself along with many others have been here long enough, and post enough that the spam we do post is in good fun. Also, the amount of useful posts we have outweigh the spam anyway

except for my spam-a-thon to 7000 posts...

You know, sometimes I wonder what my post count would be if MikeC deleted all of my spam-posts.

Crap, now I'm afraid to find out... I hope Mike don't read this.

No one explained, what about those who used a scripting program that changed there post counts withought actually posting?

I've mentioned before but I'll say it again...I post at a NIN forum (go figure) and the way they have post count work is that they've set a "standard" post amount for what they consider a single "post." I assume it does a character count, compares it to how many characters are in their standard, divides the actual post by the standard and then adds that number to your total post count.

So those who write a few HUGE posts will have, say 2400 adjusted posts, but maybe only 1700 actual posts (it shows your actual, adjusted and content percentage average on your profile page) while those that write a ton of miniscule posts may have 2400 actual posts, but only 800 adjusted posts.

I think I have over 2400 posts there and my adjusted post count is around 1070.5086 or something. I'm too lazy to login and check.

I don't know if that's viable here as that board is phpBB and this is vBulletin. But whatever. I like that system and it definitely takes the need to spam away.
