sites with 200x as many registered members", and just as many posts, too. That's pathetic.

Are you saying that your thread starts are pathetic? Or are you saying the other sites thread starts are pathetic?

Why is the number of thread starts such an important metric? I have never understood why you beleive this is such a big deal. Enlighten me.

What does the number of threads started mean in terms of quality of information?

I'm serious, please explain to me what you think this metric means.

thanks

:devil:

Number of posts and thread starts doesn't necessarily indicate quality of the forum. I logged onto another shooting forum the other day and there were at least 8 GM shooters on at the same time. Four or five of them had posted answers to a question about visual inputs. There weren't a lot of posts, but the quality was pretty high. When guys like Enos, Tomasie, Burkett, Londrigan, and so on are anwsering questions, you usually don't see a lot of information interjected by weekend plinkers.

Then we have the armszoo, lol. The posts over here go like this:

1. Babble, babble, incoherent, nonsense.
2. WTF?
3. Can't you read you POS.
4. Leave him alone.
5. Blow me you lame liar.
6. Oh for crying outloud when will this stop.
7. I have had it I'm outta here.
8. Don't let the door hit you in the ass.
9. This is unbelievable.

I vote we adopt the above numbering system and cut down on our typing...

so, instead of writig a detailed question on the meaning of a post, I can just type:

2

and when all else fails, I can:

2-6-9

in response to a post.

cool.

Would work as well as anything else since andy never responds to what we say anyway.

4, 1, 1 ;)

the only problem is I think we need a minimum of 10 characters, so there would be a lot of extraneous stuff added (like this, perhaps)

If making postings on a board is your only achievement in life, you have failed!

Sheesh, need 10 characters, I'm pretty sure there's a lot more than 10 characters on this board, and one person is two of them.
