Post total too high

26 posts in this topic

My post total is too high... now I'm not saying I want a CAP on the amount of posting I can do -- but can I get my overall total rolled back 25% so I dont feel like quite so LARGE of a loser? Just scale back the number so it looks like I'm only posting say 5 posts a day as opposed to my current 9.6 post per day average.

See I COULD take responsibility for the accumulation myself and cut back on posts.. but basically I'd have to not post for about 250 days... and I think that that's just impossible for me... I've tried.

So I need postric bypass surgery... I need outside help to make myself LOOK like less of a pig than I am...

think we could do something like that? :uni:

That's just not going to work. We roll you back 25%, an in a couple months, you'll be right back in the same situation. You have to do something systemic to lower your post totals, like, say, give some of your posts to other posters with less. Or let the dog use the computer more. But I'm still firmly in favour of cutting people off at 5 a day. Otherwise, you're just being greedy. I mean, how in the world is someone who can only post 1 message per day supposed to compete?

PK what happens if you go to post-arbitration and they award you 150% of your current post-total.. would you turn them down ??? :blink:

Tell me about it. It took me almost 2 years to hit 1000, and 5 months later I'm coming up on 2000. :wacko:

But PK you are not linking post count to bandwidth used. If you don't tie those two together, we may be forced to lock you out. :evil:

I don't want any rollbacks, we can survive with nothing less then a hard cap at 3,500 posts.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

DM, when a poster hits 3,500 posts, are we forced to trade them to the board of a rich team that can send us back posters with lower post totals??? Or do they come back with a new name???

I mean, do we send PK to Detroit for posters to be named later???

:o posts link to bandwidth use... YIKES!

I like where this thread is going -- I see a really healthy dialog starting though we haven't really dealt with the issue...

Gad zooks sammy -- you're the saving grace when I your totals up as a benchmark for board hogdom! :P I'm right behind you but at least I'm not ahead of you. Look how NJay is STILL up there and he hasn't really posted much at all in the past year and 1/2!!

We should have a luxury tax on posts :P For each post after 5,000 two get added onto the total and for each post after 7,500 three get added on. That'd curtail posting real fast :evil:

While I'm glad I'm just the little guy with not much of a post count, I'm very upset and surprised at the 24% rollback on posting counts! This affects the little guys more than the big thousnads upon thousands of posts posters! :rolleyes:

Few questions about this hard cap... does this include all boards or isthis cap stricitly for NJDEVS??

I'd hate to think my posts at FFF wopuld hurt me here...

also, do playoff posts count against the regular season cap?? nd how do we count posts during the lock out???

So many questions.... I might need an increase ont he cap just to understand the cap@!!
