okay, my last suggestion got shot down (perhaps rightfully so), but here's another stab at it.

would it be a lot of work (my limited scripting knowledge tells me yes) to add an asterisk or something to a person's user name if they attain a certain posts-per-day average? i know clay's average was almost 30 a day at one point, my own is about 3... somwhere in the middle there should be a number that entitles a person to actual post-whore status.

This could be bad, cos we all know people would be posting REALLY pointless things to get the star or whatever (see the "I need 10 more posts to get a new status Wink)

yes, but they would have to maintain it if it was based on a daily average. Laugh most would get tired of it after a bit and the true post-whores would shine through.

I'm thinking that wouldn't be in HH's best interest because the more post whores he has, the more money he has to sink into the site for increased bandwidth. Think quality over quantity, guys.

This suggestion came via pm from a dz.commer in response to my reminder to have quality over quantity. File this under, "the best thing I've heard all day":

How about not adding to ones post numbers in Talkback?

Hahaha, that sound you just heard was post numbers plummeting! Tongue

I agree. What was the purpose of post numbers to begin with? I was not here when this site began so I never knew why it counted post numbers.

Or 2 different sets of post numbers:

"Talkback" and "Other"

Wouldn't that encourage post whoring in the other forums? I think everyone has done a pretty good job in keeping things on topic in the more serious forums.

I love it.

Titles for posts weren't so damaging when dz.com was smaller, but it's just too big now for everyone to be trying to drive up his or her post numbers.
