    Did your post count change when you posted that question?

    Not that it really matters to me, but for the sake of those who do care about post counts - is this retroactive or only forward going?

    You are actually slowing down old man, I would have expected you to be over 5K posts by now.

In one recent instance, a user had copy pasted 36 greetings in 1/2 an hour, in an effort to reach 50 posts. This policy went into effect about 8 days ago.

    Good call on the change.

    I never did have near the confidence in an item FS from someone who had 45 "howdy" posts, their own introductory posts, and a few "+1"'s with the FS as post 50 or 51 compared to someone with the same 50+ post count that had shown up on several varied threads and engaged in conversation in them.

    +1 UncleMJM.

    I do totally agree, I am cautious of buying something from someone who doesn't have many posts.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Copy/pasting "Hi" 36 times would have taken over 15 minutes, with the "One post every thirty seconds" rule.

    How tedious would THAT be? Goot lawd.

    Ok I get it now.I understand the reason behind the 50 post thing.Some of the forums I admin/co-own have post count requirements.I don't think we can cut post counts on those forums.Anyway,I just wanted to make sure it wasn't a forum problem that's starting to crop up.BTW,I don't understand the thing with people wanting to have the highest post count.We're here for the experience not the competition.


    Awesome!This is post 6 of the ones that count.I'm going to be a post count super star.
