    How about not letting posts in the lounge go in the post count. I think it would cut back on a lot of post whoring. Thoughts?

    Personally I dont see why it even matters. I could care less if my post count even showed up next to my screen name in any of my posts...

    I don't think we have much of a whoring problem here - some people (myself included) use the forum as kind of a blog, but I don't see people posting just to get their post counts up...

    I just get annoyed when week after week the majority off the topics are things like "post pictures of your tree" or "I'm not at work today!" or "it snowed a little here today". IMHO this stuff is not the least bit interesting and makes me wonder if people don't post this stuff just to up thier post count.

    Oh yea, and just searching through someone's (not going to name them) profile, In the last 110+ posts, only 3-4 have been outside the lounge.

    So we arent allowed to create a thread to strike up any kind of conversation when some of us get bored out of our mind unless it has a valid point? Personally, I think its the BS threads that bring us closer together. It helps get to know one another and when we are actually talking about something a little more serious we have a better feel and understanding of what others are trying to say.

    But, dont mind me. Im just leveling-up!

    That's not what I'm trying to say. I don't find everything in the lounge interesting, that's fine. I'd just expect some of these threads to be posted in a nursing home forum, not here. Seems like some people seriously need to GO OUTSIDE more often

    hey buddy I started that tree thread. I have met alot of the people on this forum and consider them all friends. This forum is the only one that I post anything un car related. Its nice to know someones opinion on things other than what color you should paint your car. Personally I hate post counts. I like forums without them. I dont see this as even being an issue, only reason I'm voicing my opinion......you cut me down.

    No! This is a technical forum. No bullshitting and no socialization. Close all non-car forums now! You have plenty of time to be social when you're dead. Don't waste precious time now. End all fun!

    I just looked at my own posts and most of them are in the non-technical area. Am I a culprit here?
