I dont want to lose my Pro status... :( I think once it gets bigger yes, but there are still some photo related things in OT here. So for now I say yes. Besides, a post is a post is a post, yes?

I agree.

Well I see it both ways... A post is a post, yes, but people shouldn't be getting their status by JUST whoring... :lol:
and I have no problem with whoring which is probably why I'm asking... I don't want to discourage any sort of random threads to boost site stats and the like, it's just that I wonder if it should count towards the total for a member.

I see that, but I think the post whores here, myself included contribute equally and seriously to the actual content of the boards. I dont think theres really anyone who just lives in OT. yet...

I agree completely with you Matt, it's just the blatant whoring to get a status. And that's why it's a poll. Too see what "we" think of this as a group. My input is only worth so much, and I don't want this to be a dictatorship, so phoal. :)

I'm also a HUGE whore (2712 posts :huh: ) so it would effect me too...

I agree to what Matt said. I contribute and I post on OT.

*shrug* It's not like some of you guys and NASIOC OT, which is the only board you post in :P

There's been joking about post whoring just to get status, but I don't think anyone has actually done it. I think when the site gets bigger and you have people coming in and postwhoring just for the sake of postwhoring, that's when it's time to turn off OT posts.

Doesn't matter to me, the way I see the OT is like having extra co workers to chat with and kill time while avoiding work. I don't count how many conversations I have with co workers at the end of the day and say

"yep I had 83 statments today... I am the most talkative person in the office"

:lol:

There should be an "OT Winnar" status if you go past 500 posts in OT

Why on earth is this discussion still going on?

OT posts don't count and I doubt we'll ever turn them back on. In general, post count is so unimportant that we don't even display it under usernames, like almost every other forum out there.

I think the discussion on OT posts is pretty much done and the decision has been made. Thread is now closed.
