Anyone remember the point-buy-system? I have never seen as much spamming and post-count whoring than during that time :)
Sounds good why did they take it away :naughty:
Yeah I check out rep power too, but its only takes one asstard to give you bad rep for somthing totally stupid, when yer in your user cp and you look at that, you see a bad one and think, what the hell was that person thinking lol.. Oh well I guess..
I used to be obsessed with post counts but in the end I decided not to spam and make proper posts in The pub the aspergers and animal testing thread are a good expample of my posts and have got lots of good karma since I did better posts. I'm glad I stopped posting in the spam I feel more proud when I do decent posts, I go in the spam forum everynow and then but not constantly like before.
I dont get that, you say you were obssesed with getting a high post count, but you also say you would go o the spam forum all the time... Last time I checked the spam forum didnt increase your post count. :P

It dosent I dont post in spam anymore because I was getting loads of bad karma and annoying everyone, ever since I've posted properly more people seem to like me and now I have good karma. :)
I usually post a lot for a week or so then I stop for a while. Don't know why, I just don't feel the urge to.
Danny, not everyone thinks you're an ass. ;)

The only other time I spammed as much was when the melee reopened in may or june of 2004. I think I got a 100 posts in a day. Remarkable I did only got banned from the melee once I rember all I cared about was post count. Now and then I will glance at it, since it is not terribably important to me. You could take away post count and I would not care. It is just 1, 2, or 5 numbers.

Some notorius members figured out how the admins got a ton of points and used their method, a store hack, to get a million points quickly. It was also promoting a ton of spam from people like me back then. No one was posting anything good, they just wanted quick post to get points to spend in the store.
worthless, 2 letter posts
I have seen people, mostly in the pub, state something in one line that would take me a paragrpah or two to state. Its not the number of words in your post, but what you state that counts;)
I don't really pay attention to the new member's unless they have more then 1 rep point's, I have been here a while and only have below 300 post's....
