Lotza luck Foxy as Lunchboxer has become somewhat of a legend here on RCU. 53,000+ posts? Man, and I thought that I spent way too much time in here!
It's not about the quantity but the quality. Some of the best members here are the ones who post the least but have the experience to reply when needed and give great answers to questions. I've seen some that reply with stupid OT postings yet aren't too smart or give out bad info. Members that post ot up their post count ot try to give themselves cred in here don't get it in my book.

Actually, you know what the metric should be? It should be post count DIVIDED by score.

With over 16k posts, its logical I would have accumulated some points. There may be other users who only post when they have something really worth saying, and have a much higher rating ratio.

Lower is better...

For example, my ratio is 16104/880=18.3 posts per star

Syco's is 10355/566=18.3 posts per star as well!! (Actually its 18.29 beat me by .1)
Makes sense, mines 15 posts per star.

I gotta say it..

At the end of the day post count doesn't matter. I have a high post count by virtue of me being here a while and being very active, but I've definitely posted some bull**** over the years.

What's more important is that we think about each post we're making and consider how it contributes to the threat involved.

That said most high post count members are very good for the community and are pillars of the RCU community, but we need to remember that its quality not quantity that matters.

Your score starts at 100, so subtract 100 from your total to see your "earned" stars before figuring your PPS (posts per star)
As you can see, the airplane forum guys never use them

Actually a lot of people never bother to use them. I don't think I've ever used it once along with a pile of other people [&:]
Also I don't see it being a very helpful indicator as someone can go make another account, and go give themselves all 5 stars on posts they have done. I remember a while back someone tried that, and was giving everyone in one thread one star thinking they down rank the person lol

To be completely honest I've always ignored the post rating system. I probably should be more active in that area, especially as a moderator.

Thats an awesome avatar Foxy. But as much as I like the s2000, you have a pathological obsession with that car lol.
Everyone who's driven one has a pathological obsession with it, you probably remember there's another mod with one and he's in love with it too. Its a lot of car for the money these days and has no real ricer tax, yet.

Anyway, you probably missed a few episodes while you were away. I had a daughter 13 months ago, and I'm having another in 3 months, the S2k had to go a year ago, I now have an EP3 Civic Type R (same engine basically, just with usable rear seats and trunk).

I'll post up some pics soon. Had that car nearly a year now and never took a pic. Has very nice rims and a good stance (H&R coilovers). I really love it, just as much as the stuka...(S2K)

Very good observation (to deduct 100 from the score before performing the calculation), I'm ashamed you had to point that out. Unlike me to miss such a detail. Thank you!
