    Just how important is a person's post count to you ? do you take people with a higher number of posts more seriously than people with less posts ? I just recently thought of this because of a website I was previously on, where some users refuse to answer people with low post counts, deeming them " newbies" and "wastes of time". so just how important is it to you ?

    Well, i don't really care about how many posts i've written, and I'm sure other users don't care about my number of posts either

    exactly, on comicvine, everyone thinks a user called king Saturn is the coolest shit ever made because he has 221000 posts and people with under 1000 aren't taken seriously.

    I have a more "quality over quantity" mindset nowadays, so not having a very high post count (which isn't the case for me atm anyway) doesn't really bug me...

    Although I didn't exactly have that mindset a few years ago when I signed up. :P

    Post count is utterly pointless. The only indication it gives together with join date is how active someone has been.

    Post count equates to the size of your penis.

    even then it is flawed as it does not consider the fact people have active periods and dry spells in terms of activity.

    Quality over quantity.

    However, it's been proven that members usually take people with high post counts more serious then lower post counts.
