    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.).

    certainly! my post count is like the equivalent to the length of my ______ in real life - it matters plenty.

    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
