    Not really.
    I've just gained a lot of posts since I was given permission to post news and releases on the Portal.

    You're not respected by the amount of posts you have; you'll be more respected if you have good quality posts (contribute to the topic, respectful to other members, etc.).

    As JPH said, you get the reputation by the quality, not the quantity.

    As to the topic, NO. Though I post more when I'm nearing a "100" figure. Other than that, no.

    how many do I have ?
    I don't care at all, it doesn't change anything past 100 (to gain access to the trading forum).

    I post when I have something to say and not to make more posts or being more acknowledged.

    Back when I started joining forums a few years ago, I was obsessed with posting to get a high post count just to look cool. Now I don't care at all. I just post for the fun of it.

    I use to but now don't, I post too much to care.

    Being able to be useful and give an honest opinion that doesn't flame anyone is what matters.

    i don't. it's nice to have a big post count. but since the equation lots of posts = large e-penis doesn't exists, there's not much left for me to actually care about. i think quite a lot about what i'm going to post, because quality > quantity.

    Post count has never meant anything to me. There are people with 50 billion posts, but if it's just a bunch of spam, what does the post count mean? Nothing.

    The content of your posts means more than how many times you've hit submit.

    I usually don't know what my post count is, until someone mentions it or after I post on "post count" related threads.

    So I'll check how many I have as soon as I add this.

    I have to keep spamming the forums until I reach over 20 million posts. I must not fail!

    Ya, thats the only reason I'm posting this message.

    But in seriousness, I think when people see high post count, they think old member, knowledgeable member, valuable member. I usually don't even look at joined dates, but mostly just post count. But having high post count and not a connection to the community is pointless. Also, you need a flashy avatar for people to remember you by
