I'm not picking on ANYONE. It's an example of how things are.

Azn dont you have a "SCHOOL POPULARITY CONTEST" to contend in, or something better to do other than stir up dirt? Ron deleted all the out of line posts already, no need to start again.

If you judge someone's online account by how many posts they have ur an idiot.
3 informative posts are more helpfull than 1000 posts that say "no that truck stinks mine is better"
I would judge someone by there account picture before their post count.

nitsklr was special, he deserved to be flamed.

I signed up in 2005, but I didnt really start posting untill early summer/late spring of this year, does that make me a bad person?

I don't care, I just posted to make my count go up!!! LOL!! ( i'm joking) Post count doesn't really matter because there are things like the tree word stories that make your count go up a lot, but aren't doing any good. You just have to see if the person know what they're talking about, that's it.

Put it this way, we have new members that have 40 years of experience but you wouldn't know it just by seeing their post count. We also have people at the other end of the spectrum that have thousands of postings but you don't know if they're asking a lot of questions or are giving bad advice. I've seen a lot of both.
If you see a bad response, NICELY correct the person. I'm not all seeing, all knowing so when someone corrects me I don't mind it as I learn more also in the end.

I actually dont like when my post count gets high. Regardless I could care less what someones count is, it's more of what comes out of their posts. Within a few posts you can tell a lot about a person.

Post counts? Hmmm. I agree with many of the others who have already said so; it is pretty much useless. Instead of banter posts, I would like to see more exhaustive instructional and informational posts. Those are too few and far in between the banter posts.

Don't get me wrong, I tend to banter too (like I am doing now), but I would love to see more technical posts in which people get more into the engineering of RCs, more physics, more math and equations, etc. But unfortunately, most RC fans are not engineers nor do they care to discuss those things. I wish there were more technically minded people who would post and discuss these things; I really dig that stuff. If anyone of you are such, please try to post your technical knowledge se we can slowly but gradually learn this stuff. Then we will actually walk out with some practical knowledge from the hobby we all love.
