    Since the mod/s were unhappy with my posts in the newest contest I'll ask the questions here starting with the quote:

    Since I can't see the shout box, I can't see if there might be other hints.

    On a happy note: post count is now 44, weeee!

    You need to be a contributing site member who has either been active for over 4 years or has shown a commitment to the site.

    We won't just validate anyone that makes a request or the whole thing would be pointless.

    If in doubt, PM me or another supervisors/administrator and ask. The worst we'll say is 'no', but keep the above points in mind.

    In that case, I won't bother you with a PM based on membership age for another 4 months since my join date was 11/30/06. At least I should be able to get in on the Christmas freebie giveaways....

    45 posts, I'm on fire!!

    Make that 16 months and next Christmas... since you edited it to go from 3 to 4 years.... looked at my join date you sly dog you [​IMG]

    Edit: I take it statistics as in times having visited the site/consistency visiting the site similar to the 'posts per day' statistic are probably not kept to help the 'lurkers are part of the community too' argument?

    *Note to self*
    I should really be making new posts to up the count..... [​IMG]

    It's uber easy to get 100 posts. Just post whats on your mind in threads you find interest in. It's not like they are asking you to write 15 pages about how gbatemp is awesome. [​IMG] You are half-way there too.

    But that's the mentality of the Lurker, we don't enjoy posting just for the sake of posting. We crawl out of the digital shadows only when necessary.

    If we are forced to post (because we want free shwag), we still don't want to just randomly post to add to our post count, only if there is something of substance to offer: a well thought out opinion, obscure knowledge, or advice that would hopefully be over 80% useful.

    Habits are hard to break.

    Lurkers are worse than newcomers in my opinion. They just waste the bandwidth of this site.

    Heh, and those lurkers are responsible for what makes this site crash whenever some huge game comes out. Pokemon HG/SS is gonna be a disaster.

    No, once again that is the spammers who make THOUSANDS of useless posts about the damn game. That is what increases the bandwidth costs, the fact that people actually have to have that junk data transmitted to them.

    If anybody is to blame for the site slowing down in times like that, it isn't lurkers like myself, it's people who post useless crap that nobody wants to read, and the hundreds of posts going "OMG Y CANT I FIND DIS GAME ON I WNT 2 PLAY IT NAO BECAUSE ITS TEH BESTEST GAME eVARRRRRRRR!¬!11!`2323!2W2".

    Just post whenever possible. Look at meh, it's been a year, and all I got are 1000+ posts. I got to 100 posts in less than a week. But at that time, a lot of noobs were there. I just posted whenever someone needed help. Hang out in the General Off Topic section. A lot of people post about stuff that you might be interested in.
