# Members With the Most Posts Counts - Page 5

Since it's unlikely someone would post for a continuous 24 hours, use 12 hours (which is still a lot for someone to do). 24 hours x 60 minutes = 720 minutes. 720 minutes divided by 506 posts = 1 post every 1.4 minutes.

I've seen this member's posts before...she isn't one to 'cut and paste' the same thing repeatedly. Her posts are thought out, honest conversation which takes time. Being able to post 506 times in a 24 hour period and still have some life away from the computer, doesn't seem likely (humanly possible, but not likely).

After doing some review, it appears that a lot (maybe most?) of those posts came from the Games, Jokes & Fun forum for counting to one million. So are these not included in a person's post count but are showing up on the daily stats?

Just my \$.02, but threads like "Let's count to a million!" are a bad thing: It's the tail wagging the dog, and destroys credibility for the forum users making real contributions, asking and answering relavant questions.  This is important because new members tend to see people with high post counts as "old salts" whose advice should be given some weight .....but if the supposed "old salt" has raised 3 chickens, and poorly at that, yet racked up a huge post count by bangin' on his ENTER  key in a "count to...." thread ..... then that post count is total crap..... it's disingenuous and unethical.

I realize that "number of page views" is important to advertisers, but were I in Marketing and took any pride in my work, I'd discount any place that inflates it's traffic with crap like "Let's Count To ......."  it makes the traffic numbers comlete BS, and anyone using his ad dollars wisely could figure that out ...... so it's wasted bandwidth.

Again, this is just my opinion, and does not reflect the views of staff, management or shareholders of this site.  ;)

If you look in the stickies for the games forum, you will see that the posts in that are do not count toward post count.

All posts add value. The value is in the eye of the beholder.

The owner feels all posts have value, therefore they are a welcome part of the forum.

Hopefully new members will do a quick search and see what forums other members hangout in and what they post.

Seems weird...they don't count enough to add to a person's post count but they do count enough to show up on the daily stats.

I'm kind of over the whole daily stats thing...seems to lack much meaning to me. Oh well.

I think this thread was meant to be informative, not argumentative. I am closing it for now.
