Can you see where I'm going with this
I'm thinking its the male variety that like the sound of their own voices or rather the look of their own typing
I take umbrage at that, in part due to the fact that most posts by myself tended to stay on topic, Actually once I reached 1000 I thought I'd just become as wildfire in comments as some of the more prolific postersamongst you to see how quickly the post count went up over "X" days"once i'd achieved a baseline ..so experimental.
I can see by my curve that it beats heavily into the quality of a topic (or lots of topics), ..so many of them becoming mere rambling general chat posts which we've never had before.
if you multiply that by x amount of natterer's then it becomes increasingly hard to sort the chaff from the wheat, when using the search facility.
It's never been about topping anyone else on a post count as to a useful all year round aid to carving for me in the uk, & yes I'm here alot in the run up to Halloween, I tend to work from home so am on-line around 17 hrs per day so see alot of postings, start to post back but then don't as when I re-read it , it contains nothing but trite burbling.
Have a look at say stencil ideas submitted (via titles to both mine & Nos's names) It will actually amount (to the 1000 post mark I mentioned) for a good percentage of the numbers, that add ideas to areas of the forum.
Well actually don't it'll just be dull pointless counting of beans (sic) ..but you get my drift.
A whole lot of Nos's have been separate posts as to what he's made incorporating stencils, stencil suggestions etc & sometimes parrying with myself..
