    that is a good point...

    a overall post count is no good, we are back to the same situation again...even though ive said all this...:)

    yes i believe having a post count for tech and another for BG would be good...is this possible though? i got a feeling it would be...not sure

    i reckon either have 2 post counts like above or just 1 for tech, no other ones....

    It does appear the post counts have been removed.

    Kind of a shame - but ultimately they have no true purpose.
    It may impart upon some new member to the community an impression of an individuals experience/technical prowess. That impression could just as easily be misguided by a post count.

    Darthtanion for instance has always given "dead-on" advice and help, while not a frequent poster in the Garden. So that has resulted in a relatively low post count - though they have been the highest caliber in quality.

    Truth is, when I ask for assistance, I don't give a rip if your posting the first time or a regular. I just need accurate information.

    I've always liked the idea of titles for exceptional/unique members who have shown to be a valuable part of the community. Whether it be on the order of "nVidia guru" or "Suzi Sunshine" a title imparts a good deal to a newcomer - it states clearly that the individual has shown a marked tendency to contribute to this community in a manner that has value.
    Certainly a titled poster can be a position for everyone to aspire to, but it can't be gained through false means in the way a post count could be achieved by deviant (although industrious - you gott'a give them that) individuals.

    Personally, I've never been clear on what exactly the hubbub was, as I have never found where exactly it started. Though I have no doubt as to who the rotten apple was that started this whole snowball a'rollin'.

    Ultimately, I hope none of the current members leave over this hulabaloo. Though it is a fact as others have stated, folks move on for many reasons. Always sad to part ways with a freind just the same.

    It looks like another chapter in the TweakTown book is being written. I'm thinking it's going to be another good read for all by the looks of things at this point.

    Go Team!:cheers:

    I believe that leaving the forums is pointless (man i love that word)....It will just destroy TT even more. Hopes were down at TT ...regs were leaving etc...but like i said before...whats the point...there isn't any...so just stay...and go on with it...: peace2:

    That title was given with the utmost in respect for your special contribution:D
    Not just any pain, now mind you, but the official TT Forum "Pain in the A$$"
    That isn't any consolation prize - it is a mark of distinction possessed only by yourself, there is no other!
    Wear it with pride:thumb:

    I am assuming that titles are not concrete and are subject to upgrade/downgrade as warranted.

    I thought it was highly appropriate, and I do have at least two other people to back me up. :D
