    Look at my join date and how many posts I have...at least now I have a DSL and Wii but still...most of the topics are related to things I have no idea or experience about. That and with school and what not, I try to type as minimal as possible. But for you mthrnite, I'll do what I can.

    I think that if you dont have something important to contribute with, you shouldn't post. I've been here for years and I haven't reached the 1000s yet, but thats because I try to not post crap/stay on topic XD. Like I could say something in many topics but if its not that important I just let go of what i thought up and skip to another one.

    I don't post unless I have something constructive to say (except this time, I posted just to make you happy! [​IMG])

    Also, english is a second langage for me so it's longer for me to write something... ^^"

    Probably because the forum requires you to register to read it at all, and is referred to from lots of other sites. As a result, some people sign up just to read a single guide or specific posts (the reviews for example) or so, and once they've found what they're looking for they don't care about the rest. I understand them, to a certain degree. Why post if you've got nothing to contribute (assuming they don't as they don't post, this may or may not be the case)?

    People like to read the topics a lot more. I've always wondered why so little posting goes on at GBATemp, especially if you look at the home page at any one time and see 200+ users logged on.

    If you're talking about the last weeks ...

    Well it's the end of the year, more ppl are worrying what to get for there friends/girlfriends/lovers/wifes then posting [​IMG]
    Christmas, newyear, We all have to spend money and hope to get money and we all spend more then ussual [​IMG]

    The rest of the year (except for the few other important days (birthday/wedding/valentine/kids birthday/wifes birthday) we try to avoid having words with the wife
    cause we have to make it up everytime [​IMG]
    We have to save money to spend on console stuff and keeping the wife and kids happy (for those who have wife and kids or lover), and save some more money
    to spend on the wife and on the special holidays.

    In other words Why talk/post so much when you can have words with your wife/lover irl [​IMG]

    Reading the forums is for me like reading my newspaper (except that won't be in the kitchen/toilet)
    Read in silence and don't talk unless you have something to say.

    (Hope my wife doesn't read this post or i'll be arguing with her for a few days (and that will cost me a dinner or more)

    Ok this whole thing i posted is rubbish, i think i better had shut my mounth and only kept reading instead.

    0.8 posts per day? HA!
    I figure the only time worth posting if there's something to say.
    Or, whether some crazy new homebrew comes in.

    For the most part it would be nice to have more people post, the more opinions on a topic the better.
    But I think the reason why more people don’t post, is not everyone speaks English, it’s one thing to
    translate English into there language but quite another to write in English. Or they just have nothing
    to add to the topic. [​IMG]

    This post normally would not exist because, despite having 3 points to say, they've all already been covered and I hence have nothing to add that hasn't already been said. Point proven [​IMG]

    More posts would mean even more bullshit, more redundant crap, more bad spelling and more people making complete fools out of themselves. No, thank you. I'm glad that the majority of the people here don't post, I honestly wouldn't want to read even more of that meaningless gibberish. It's hard enough to find valuable information (here and on that whole internet thing in general) already. I'm not saying free speech should be for intelligent people, but sometimes I'd feel better if some folks would just shut the fuck up.

    [EDIT]
    This post is the best example to prove what I mean, I guess... [​IMG]
