Listen clubmembers--dont you worry you've forsaken quality in your effort to rack up all those posts?

And do you think icons and avatars and smiley faces or kissy faces should really count the same as a two paragraph treatise on how to cook farro or discipline seventh graders?

Guys.  No.  All posts are important.  It's called community building.  ::)

;D

What would you suggest, a weighting system?  Word ratings rather than post ratings?  A rubric for post quality?  Maybe you should talk to Y about that.  ^-^

I have lots of in-depth posts and lots of silly posts, thank you very much.  Sometimes tiny posts or single smilies can brighten people's days!  Sheesh.  You all are buzzkills.

Well, I am personally quite happy with the quality of my posts....but I see that others might think otherwise! I don't really think it matters, and I'm not trying to win a contest. I thought this thread was all in fun. I don't post and think, "YES! That's another number to add to my count!" I post when I feel that I would like to speak....or express myself...which sometimes = smiley. Like,  :-\

I dunno, I mean..I'm not gonna stop posting or anything. I'm not out to "rack up posts," though. I'm sorry if anyone is unhappy with AC quality.

i do think people need to think about their posts, and perhaps it doesn't happen as much when posts are 'counted' because people want a higher count, but as long as they aren't completely ruining the boards with their posts or posting for no reason whatsoever it doesn't really matter. (post whoring?)

actually, i wish a lot of people posted more. like YOU, jkl, thought maybe you do and you just post in vegan food and cooking and such where i do not wander as often because it just makes me very hungry. i will go venture over there now since i am thinking about it!

Yes, don't hate!  The boards would be oh-so-serious if they were all in-depth recipe talk, therapy sessions, advice columns, and descriptive essays.  

Come on, the chit chat thread is one of the most successful threads here!  Tens of thousands of views!  I've become such better friends with all of you through silly little posts.  For instance, PK and I have developed a fondness for chains of one-word responses to things.  And AC and I bond over the use of the word KAC to indicate agreement.  Jolly good fun.

Indeed.  HATORZ one and all.  You all should start a "For serious, profound discourse only" thread if you like.

B-T-dubs, every single one of our post counts is a drop in the bucket compared to PPKer's tallies.  

PS If only CHATROOM posts counted as board posts, Mizz Pink!  Hmpphh.   :P

I feel like I should be insulted by this.  In some way.  Maybe not.

Hmmm. I think we all have subtly different motivations for being here and a part of this community. When an issue moves one to speak thoughtfully, one does - IF, as so often happens because of time differences, great minds who think alike have NOT already posted almost exactly what one wanted to say. :( It so happens that a lot of my posts are short, and lighthearted. Partly because I don't feel that I'm very good at expressing my thoughts (this improved with experience of course). Partly because I consider VW (a) a place to read and learn and share when I have something to add, and (b) a place to be with my friends. Yes, that's you. ;) And one hardly ever has deep, meaningful discussions every time one talks with one's friends! ::) Except for heart-to-hearts... which - as we get to know each other better - can easily and often be expressed in a few words or smilies.

So there. :P :-*
