    I don't sit at forums all day!! Think how long it takes to post, 2 mins for short posts such as this. 2 x 35 is 1h10m per day add 35 mins looking at threads that I don't post in, you come to 1h45mins. I don't log out when I leave so it may look as if I'm on for longer than I actually am.

    Well I have no life I guess and spend a few hours here everyday. Yet your rate of posting is triple mine and I believe that next to you I have the highest rate of posting. Whats up with that?

    No idea. Hey, so what I like to participate in threads if I know something about the subject, what's wrong with that? Spam threads are fun too. If you ever visit "One Word Story II" you will know where my post rate comes from.

    . If you ever visit "One Word Story II" you will know where my post rate comes from.
    If you look elsewhere you will see I addresseed that issue. Posting in the one word story does increase your post count but it also certainly doesnt move you any closer to being a senior member. In fact Id say it moves you in the other direction. You are abiously fixiated on amassing a huge post count. Posts of one word count as little if anything around here and are no more than spam. There should be a way to remove them from your post count or thigs like the one word story should be banned because of people who abuse it like yourself. I think Ive posted there maybe 10 times in 2 years. I detist it for the false post count it gives some people.

    I am relatively new, November last year. I have over 1500 posts (I believe), but I only spend an hour on the org a night, sometimes a bit more like on weekends.

    I wish I had a slow job so I had an excuse to sit around posting, but I still enjoy it more then other things. I like it so much because I get converse with people from all over the world.

    Post count means absolutely nothing at all. I spammed these forums when I first joined, but then I realised how pointless it all was. Crat will realise the stupidity of it soon, I am sure, and will refrain from the consistent pointless posting. After all, it only makes himself look rather silly anyway.
    GARCIN: I "dreamt," you say. It was no dream. When I chose the hardest path, I made my choice deliberately. A man is what he wills himself to be.
    INEZ: Prove it. Prove it was no dream. It's what one does, and nothing else, that shows the stuff one's made of.
    GARCIN: I died too soon. I wasn't allowed time to - to do my deeds.
    INEZ: One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

    Right, a few points. Why did you join the org? Probably a fan of TW series or a particular TW game.

    A few of the people here don't post as much in the TW sections (that I know of) but post more in the Backroom. So why do that? Maybe because you find it fun, which is the reason I post in spam threads such as the music one, one word story, word association etc. because they are fun. At least, I enjoy posting in them. I've said my bit now.

    Thanks.

    As long as you are happy, Craterus.

    If the Org relied solely on members that posted infrequently the place would be a pale comparison to the vibrant and active forums that we currently enjoy.

    I thank you for your enthusiastic approach to membership here.

    As someone mentioned earlier, could the 1 word story thread be set up so that posts in there don't count towards post count? I know another forum I frequent, their "joke" forum doesn't count posts.
    "I request permanent reassignment to the Gallic frontier. Nay, I demand reassignment. Perhaps it is improper to say so, but I refuse to fight against the Greeks or Macedonians any more. Give my command to another, for I cannot, I will not, lead an army into battle against a civilized nation so long as the Gauls survive. I am not the young man I once was, but I swear before Jupiter Optimus Maximus that I shall see a world without Gauls before I take my final breath."
