Why does it even matter ? I'd rather there not even be post counts. It's not important and doesn't make anyone any better than the naxt as far as I am concerned.

Agreed, the content of the post is far more important than the count.

The only time I ever see the post count come into the equation is when people try to use it as an insult against those who have racked up quite a few. i.e "Is that comment only made to boost your post count?"....or that type of thing. Sillyness! I'd rather they weren't included either. They account for nothing.

For me it matters in some ways. Let's say someone announce a new product and it's his first post: i smell spam.

It's also true, that some members with many posts try to evaluate the limits all of a sudden.
A recurring phenomen....hmm

In my opinion, Statistically speking the Threads, Posts, Members Counts (quantity) - are important to the forum to track and indicate, the contribution of the members (in numbers).

On the other hand, the content (quality) of the post, message, is key important as well.

I think I've hit 3k now. That must be due a diamond membership!

Or at the very least a pat on the shoulder to say, "It's ok. The men in white coats will be here soon".

Yea, Everyone knows that diamonds are a girls best friend!
I vote that the mods award Polly a Diamond Membership because she is the only woman who can put up with all of us male idiots for over 3000 posts!
Will anyone second the nomination?

Thanks Bob. It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it.

Or maybe "Resident Cartoonist"? :)

I'd like to emulate Karl's feats, but on the drum kit rather than the forum ...

Now THIS interests me. I noticed Karl's unique status the first day I ever started lurking here, before I joined. Now, I've read hundreds upon hundres of topics here and literally thousands upon thousands of posts. I know a few things from before my time........I'm down with the Jay Norem saga. I'm aware of what went down with Matt Smith.

But there are two things I have NEVER been able to figure out:
1) How Karl was allocated "Karl Member"-ship status.
2) What Caddywumpus' real name is.

Anyone got the skinny??

Unless Caddy wants to share, we will probably never know his first name.

Karl goes back almost to the beginning of this site. He became my first friend when I joined by his request.
I think that, "Karl Member" is kind of like receiving an honorary degree from a university.
Karl is a great person of note around here, as well as an excellent jazz drummer. He earned that title.

Nothing is official. Remember I live in Florida, home of the hanging chad. the vote count isn't official. And it isn't self-appointed.

I hadn't noticed that. In that case I will do whatever I can to make Drummerworld the city you all want it to be.
