PostSubject: Post too much?   Sat Nov 10, 2012 4:59 am

I just noticed I average about 4.5 posts a day Shocked and I am worried I may be getting a little obsessive or even annoying to other members. I don't want to seem like the newb that wonít shut up but I love sharing what Iím smoking, drinking, and listening to. If I get annoying please tell me so. I can take it Neutral

Dude, you're good. Relax and post it's all good. Better to have people posting about their joy of smoking than to let this place get dusty. Just shows any visitors that there is still love out there for pipe smoking.

I've been around for some time, yet my post count is less than others who have only been here for a less than two years. I try to post only if I have something to say that in the end doesn't just occupy space.

But if you're excited about your experience and want to post about it, why not? A mod told me that the Board consists of whoever wants to be here the most; it seems that that is you.

I find two things about posting important. The above but also tone. I think a public Board allows its members to be orators who declaim what in the end is only their opinion. Also rather than interact in an affable manner, respecting others' opinions, since we know that our posts will have an audience, it is easy to be competitive, to play to an audience so as to achieve Board status. Though I may be careful about quality, in the past I have all too often not been careful about tone.

Quantity and quality; of the two I think the latter is much more important.

Yeah, when you average up to 20-posts a day or more (he's been slacking off a bit lately), then you might be concerned...

Everyone's always saying that Kyle posts all the time, but I seem to be missing them somehow. I feel I'm missing out on something legendary. Sad

Since Feb of 2009 this makes post 433. I've got to learn to slow down as I get on into my later years.

When people post a lot that's fine with me. I like to read what other people think and their opinions. Post all you like because that's
what the forums are for. interaction and enthusiasm through the posts helps keep the forums and our hobby alive and growing. Of
course that's just my 0.32% posts per day opinion. tongue Laughing

There's nothing wrong with posting often. It's those who post more often that define the Forum and keep it going.

Post count, one way or the other means squat.

I almost didn't want to say anything here, as I view post-count thing is a bit embarrassing for yours truly, then again, not posting made me think it'd be viewed as "prima-donna" or aloof...so at the risk of even sounding self-justified or guilty, take it from me: none of it matters.

Enjoy your time here, be kind, learn, teach, and do so how you please. Kind of like with the pipe itself. Me? I type a lot, think even more, and like being in the company of my brothers, be they friends, critics, like or dislike, because this sh*t is real.

Be utterly natural here--that's the par for this course.

Cool

When I have something worthwhile to post, I post. Others might post when they don't have anything worthwhile to post. That's life on a forum. I tend to ignore threads that don't interest me, so what's it matter?

If you're posting with the intention of driving up a post count, you're posting too much. If you're posting because you're interested, curious, or excited, and happen to notice that you're post count/rate is surprisingly high, then there's no reason to be concerned.

Are you enjoying yourself? That's the only measurement to worry about!

Pretty much my sentiments.

Of course there are always a few who enjoy themselves by running up their post count, or doing other things that might irritate other members. Those are the ones the Ignore List was invented for.

Totally. I have no one on my ignore list. I love reading everyone's posts. Sometimes the best stuff is buried in the minutia.

Personally, I wish they could do away with the post count thing. I know it's probably part of the bones of the forum and can't be taken off. I just don't know what someone would get out of having the highest post count... I mean if they were giving away pipes or something for having highest post count, yea, I'd be posting nonstop. Laughing

I've been on other boards where it seems like people are in competition to have the highest post and it's really stupid because those in the "competition" post constantly when it's obvious they have nothing to say but are only trying to maintain. I don't see that here at all. I love reading the posts of BoB members.
