    Am I the only one who feels self conscious about only having one little reputation bar under their name? I look at it and think "wow, you're still a noob." Then again, I'm the type of person who tries to shoot for top number of posts on new forums, so maybe it IS just me. >.<

    I wasn't even aware of the little blob until you brought it to my attention. Now I feel all self-conscious too...:eek:

    Meh don't worry about it. A lot of people end up giving you rep for no viable reason. It's not particularly accurate.

    I know, just the same as post count. Just cause you've made thousands doesn't necessarily mean you've contributed anything meaningful. :p

    But thanks I guess to people who bumped up my rep. I was intending to be humorous, not plead for rep, but whatever. Now I seem like a whiner and I have nobody to blame but myself. >.<

    Just create a second account and sign in once and a while under your 'alias' and do nothing but praise yourself and rate all your posts. Thats what I was going to do, but I cant find anything Ive said that I agree with.

    Reputation and post count used to be directly correlated with how much you posted in spam threads.

    Nowadays, it's correlated to how much you post in Random Chat.

    I've generally found that "content worthy of discussion" tends to come from the people with smaller post counts. ;)

    That was exactly my point, and why I motioned for areas like the spam section to have their posts not count towards post count.

    Fortunately I know I've made more posts in other sections compared to the spam area.

    find this icon below someone's avatar [​IMG] approve is green rep, disapprove is red rep. the more rep you have the more you can give out and you cant rep the same person over and over.

    wont work. The more rep you have the more you can give, if you have none you give none or next to it.

    *looks pointedly at Liadan's post count*

    So you've got nothing good to say then, eh? :p

    Anyways, yeah, I know. Most of my own posts are to the Random Chat, but I don't think I've said anything of importance here. I just like the post count to see how much time I've killed here, and the rep is a good way to feel like it wasn't a TOTAL waste. :D

    I've never actually denied that a couple k of my posts come from me spamming when I was 14-15 and literally had nothing better to do inside the house. Nowadays, though, I've made an effort to make posts with content that I feel is actually pertaining to the OP. I therefore no longer post in Random Chat or in Spam, except on a few occasions.

    It still depresses me though that I went /afk for like 3-4 months and I still had a huge postcount. I've repeatedly begged the admins to set it back to 0 but I think Nienor hates me. :(

    Edit: I also chat quite a bit to members I know fairly well, like in the Picture thread, etc. But I've also more or less stopped posting in threads that I have no actual content to post in.

    I dunno, in the past I managed to make an awful lot of posts in Every Day Debating without saying anything constructive. It's not just the spam area. (I make less posts now, but they are equally devoid of content.)
