    Who will be the first . . .

    to reach 11,000 posts??

    Just happened to notice earlier a couple of members are fast catching geoff for post count. . . . . .



    So will @Geoff make a late appearance and push it to 11,000, is @localzuk going to be the first there, or will @FN-GM make a break and overtake them both . . . . .

    I rekon we've about 35 days to find out. (based on localzuk's average of 6.5 posts per day)

    (I know it's not really a race, it's just a bit of fun!)

    Mike.

    Congratulations, you might win the race.

    Only kidding, all your posts are gold - well thought out, balanced and worth reading.

    @Geoff must be slowing down! At one time there was no chance of him ever being caught

    I remember the days when I was lurking, if ever there was a question, Geoff answered...lol...he was like google! lol

    I think it doesnt matter about post count....it matters about the quality of the post

    You're right, hence the little 'disclaimer' at the end of my post.

    It's also interesting to see the post/rep ratio of some users... but then I would say that because I have relatively high rep with a relatively low post count

    he's had 3 mentions, as long as you were all looking in to a mirror/reflective screen when you did that, I'm pretty sure he'll turn up any second and murder you...

    Remember that a number of folk were posting high numbers before Rep came in. Rep is also not always a good measurement of signal to noise ... and people's views on what is noise will differ over the site.

    I didn't know that! Ah well, it's still a good indicator of who you can trust around here if you're new. I rarely take any notice of anyone with -rep to be honest (except @Sivadam of course! )

    This is true, a lot of thanks gets given for posts that are not helpful as such, just things that make you smile etc. There should be 2 rep systems in operation in my opinion - a 'thanks that was helpful and solved my problem' and a 'that made me laugh/smile or I agree with that' type post. Might make things more complicated than they need to be mind you, but would seperate the people who solve issues/problems from the people that post up amusing/funny or other types of post. There's room for both on the forum and the forum needs both, and if the rep system could destinguish between them then it would mean more in my opinion.
