How times have changed lol. I agree that the count does matter as long as the information you present is worth while. However there was a time when it was of the highest importance and there was a war that spanned several years over who held the title of highest poster, for he was a King among users.

I feel like a nostalgic old man even though I'm not even technically an adult yet.

The day the original AMMO topic was deleted, I distinctly recall an outcry for justice, as some members had lost upwards of 200 posts. That topic was the largest topic on the entire site, at ~400 pages.
The site's current largest topic is over 2000 pages and contains 16000+ posts. That board probably has over 35000+ posts, spread out over 14 topics. The second largest topic on the site (to my knowledge) is 625 pages with exactly 5000 posts.

Well, I have a few more posts on my count than most, but in my honest opinion I don't even check the count anymore. In boredom I once raced EternalSlayer to 8000 I think but didn't care enough to win and lost by like 10-20 posts or something when I could have spammed my way to victory, and look at it now it doesn't even matter I see forums where people have 10 times my post count and half the years there that I've been at CH so I don't even care anymore.

Post count means something to those who feel they haven't contributed enough. Even if I had only 200 posts or so in my 6 years as long as they were helpful I'd be completely satisfied.

In the last year or so - Particularly since my best mate passed away - I have slowed down and only post when I feel it's worth while eg a funny joke or something useful.


Also cut back on the smiley's I don't know why though and don't care to analyze too closely

Oh ya I remember that day, I lost right around 500 though not no measly 200 lol. That was when ES and I were battling for first to get to 3000 If i'm not mistaken, I woulda had him too if not for that little fiasco. But that was back when we got our numbers in fairly legitimate conversations, they got off topic but it usually stayed relevant. It was when Malyg first came around and started spamming up a storm to raise his count that it became an issue haha.

Now days though I look to see how long someone has been a member not the number of posts they have.

Yeah, years ago post count meant a lot. I still have no idea how I racked up so many posts haha.

But now its a different story since I hardly post anymore as it is.

No. Take this post for example, I'm only posting it to raise my post count, but is it a cool or meaningful post? idk >_>

Well, I guess you're right.

^was this post relevant? or didn't I post just to raise my post-count?

^^and did you reply to me to clarify that my post was relevant, or you just wanted to raise your post count?
