    Well, I believe I just read today that the old word game was to be deleted, so that might be the reason for all the lost posts.

    Ohh, that's why Shanazel lost more posts than I did (aaagh!)
    Now our over-3000 threads seem a bit rediculous

    I like games, the more ridiculous the better (and I'm not the only one- witness the popularity of rhino-typing). Never claimed to have posted 3000 brilliant comments, so am not particularly crushed by the loss of credit for some of them. Heaven knows how many I'd have had the original forum not been hacked. Personally, I don't think it would hurt for monitors to periodically go through their sections and delete threads that are no longer pertinent (such as threads for costumes that have been sold, events that are long over) but that's just my legal assistant papershuffler persona shining through.

    I often feel like the number of posts things becomes a false scale by which to note people's participation, because of those very word games. There are lots of people with high post counts who play lots of word games or contribute stuff like "Yeah, I agree" and other stuff that doesn't really amount to much. Yet it looks impressive when your post count gets really high, and some forums even extend priviledges to higher post counts. Makes no sense overall, though I understand what it is TRYING to do.

    High post counts look impressive? Oh, my dear, if you knew how that makes me laugh. You must've missed the determined race between Moon and me to NOT have the most posts. (She won, by the way, but I am determined to be the loser in 2008, no matter who I lose to!)

    Hey, here's an idea. We could add a new symbol to all those clustered under our names to the left of our posts: a scarlet for "addicted to games" for any forum member posting over x number of times in the games section.

    LOL I also had to laugh, TribalDancer! Shanazel and I are not that happy with our obvious forum addiction.

    There's this other forum I often visit where people get certain privileges by post amount, but also based on how long you've been a member. And because those posts have to be quality posts, the posts made in game section and greeting new members don't count!

    I think it really depends on one's personality! Some people ONLY post valuble comments and BIG thank you to all of them! Some dont post much and are a lurkers! And I confess I am one of those that post something like "I agree" and 'that lookis great'....LOL Just because I like to pop in and give everyone hugs!!!!

    I know many people dislike to see so many posts in off topic and games area vs serious topics... but hey like it or not the forums became much bigger than just discussion board.... for some of us (like me) who are not all that sociable the forum is about the only place to hang out and just socialize! (Join the club of Cyber-Maniacs - I even met my fiance in chat)... SO hi count in game threads? Fine with me - just a way to know each other better, sometimes just gossip and complain about little things.... Isnt how we make longt-distance friends after all???

    Hugs to All!

    PS Shanazel, why is your letter not Scarlet?????
