Hypothetically, suppose someone really wanted to bump their post count up past 30/31/whatever. Hypothetically, suppose they started an O/T thread just for this purpose. Is this a legitimate reason to start a thread and use Eidos' bandwidth? Yes or No, Please Explain.

I think it's sad just posting to boost your post counts :D :D :D


Thorin hopes no-one notices his own post count

Laugh all you want ;)

1. Bumping is offense and against the TOU.
2. Spamming is offense and against the TOU.
3. When thread gets deleted your postcount will be reduced with it (if you posted in the thread).

Add 1+2+3

and calculate the consequences

:D

I don't know whether to believe your smilies or our (harsh <small>can I say harsh?</small>) new charter. Is it really that Draconian, and on our first day, too? Why, you'd have to kick out all of us regulars, and then <small>gasp!</small> the FOOTPADS would take over!

But...rules are rules...SO NO ONE POST ANYMORE IN THIS THREAD!! WE SHOULD LOVE, HONOR AND RESPECT OUR MODERATORS AND OFFER INCENSE AT THEIR ALTARS!!

<small>TR26 hopes no one will post any more spam, because his post count will go down</small>

:D

NO! Never... I don't like flood trolls in any configuration.

NO

Such individuals can stroke their EGOS by other means. In most cases massive post counts with short timers means endless drivel and useless twaddle.

3 years ago I posted on every thread I could get my hands on (at TTLG), partly because I was completely new to "forums" and partly because I wanted to have my sig all over the place for people to see the link to my "cool new Thief website"

I'm ashamed of that period of my internet life :(

I have since "matured" and LONG since quit caring about post count. It honestly wouldn't matter to me one bit if there was no such thing anymore. :cool: :cool: :cool:

You don't have to do that anymore, because most taffers *know* who you are Komag. :p

Is there really such a thing? If so how do you get it?

Well, it's a title that was given to me, from many moons ago, stories that used to be told on the board, party stories, and I am a chandelier swinger at those parties from long ago.

And a forum rank I gave myself, when this board was updated, I was playing with the new option of forum rank, which has since been taken away. Grey Mouser said I could still retain it, even after that option was taken away , that title fit me, he couldn't see taking it away.
There is only one Chandelier Swinger. ;)

Sorry DrkSnpr14, I was only joking since we all know BA is the only chandelier swinger here. Although some of us have been known to join her from time to time....but there can only be one.

I see. It shure must be nice to have title of your own BrokenArts, and who knows, maybe someday they'll give me a crazy name to.:D
