    What's the best way to legitimately and undisruptively increase your post count in a short amount of time?

    By posting a lot of useful/helpful/constructive comments that will be a big benefit to the forum.

    Don't constantly post literally everywhere though; it gets very annoying! ;)

    Be a helpful member of the community and help people with their issues, contribute relevant and meaningful responses in the off-topic forum. It's pretty easy if you think about it just a little bit. I don't see much point in trying to up your count for the sake of it though.

    Well I guess creating a thread asking that question is one way to do it. Jokes aside, either look for people who need some help with stuff you know or answer to those eof threads like "what's the last thing you brought" or "what's the worst site you visited". But I don't suggest posting stuff just so you could post. Keep it reasonable.

    Just post when you have something constructive to say and don't worry about your post count.

    Edge of Forum doesn't count towards post count, btw. It does count towards like count though if you're into that.

    Ohh, did not notice that. How can you tell the difference between eof threads and non eof threads?

    Being helpful and providing help is useful, but it will not really get your post count up. You require to know about something to help.
    I suppose you are trying to get above 100 post so you can access the hidden forum sections.
    If so the only thing I can recommend is to be active in the community, share opinions, comment about different topics. There's many threads were people just ask for opinions on different topics. Try that. So, be active in the community, and don't troll.

    Just look above the forum page, you will see the thread location and you will notice if it is in the Edge of the Forum.

    EOF doesn't count towards your Post Count :(

    I wouldn't worry at all about your post count if I were you. As far as I'm aware, you don't really get bullied for having a low post count or anything. :P

    Why do you worry about post count? It's irrelevant and gains nothing but "hurr look I have a custom title". Just have fun here and it will go up in no time. Don't be annoying posting in threads just to increase post count.

    What? If he is trying to get into the trading area (how many posts does it take?) he will just have to earn the count naturally.
