      Post Whore

      I have been labelled a post-whore by a few people and I don't appreciate it. I know that post count doesn't matter, and I know that being here longer and contributing to the forum will gain me respect. I know for a while a few of my posts were pointless and I apoligise for this. I will now try to make sure that each post will contribute to the topic. But i will not slow down, I like being active. So if my posts are meaningful will you please stop calling me a post whore. All I hope to do is gain respect. Thank you for your time.

      you're the definition of post whore. it's going to take a lot to clear your plate. sorry.

      seriously. 500+ posts and not even a month old.

      i can let it slide but i don't know about the board... these people are savages when it comes to post whores... take a look at lowercase. nearly every one of his posts has something to contribute yet he's still called a post whore. poor poor boy. i got your back lc, don't worry. *tear comes to eye*
      clear eyes. strong hands.

      If a post whore is "just" someone who likes being active even if their posts are meaningful. Then yes i am a really big post whore.

      It's not that bad as long as you know that you are contributing to the forums. Lots of people just say post-whore if you post a lot, it isn't always an insult.

      Actually technically my posts per day are a lot higher then my profile shows. Cause I've been active for only a part of the time I signed up. Heh, I get away with these things.

      exactly. you may get called that even if all of your posts are lengthy and helpful and full of on-topic information. best advice, ignore it. don't let it get to you. you know if you're really a post-whore or not, so it shouldn't matter what people say.

      As long as you keep to your word, I'll respect you (I'm glad you switched back to your original avatar, lol )

      well you can't really know for sure, back when I joined a forum for the first time I made a ton of obnoxious off-topic posts all the time, yet I honestly didn't pay attention to my post-count at all. it didn't matter to me. so you just can't know for sure...

      As long as you don't spam or anything I don't care how often you post. Personlly I liked it when you posted to all them threads that had like 0 replys. Even if it was a small comment still made it seem like someone atleast read the posts.

      Yeah, sometimes Evanescent can be hilarious with his posts. Other times, they can just be pointless...

      That's very true.
      Several slang words can be positive, even if people don't think they are.

      For instance, many believe that it is bad to be called a computer nerd, but that doesn't need to be bad. A computer nerd is often a person who is very interested in computers, and also with much knowledge about computers.
      The last one is clearly positive.
      Are you dreaming?

      Yes, but sometimes there are hidden implications, right? Like, some people who may call you a nerd, may have that term mixed up with geek, and think it means the same thing. There are those kind of people. Someone might even call you a nerd knowing the definition but mean it to insult you, as is often the case. I mean, since you're well-versed with computers, he pre-judges you as someone who spends too much time around computers and has no life, perhaps.

      That's true in some cases, but my viewpoint of a nerd is propably more positive than the most people.
      In my vocabulary, a nerd is very similarly to a scientist.

      A person who spend too much time with computers can be defined bad, but I am also aware that nerds often have very much knowledge.

      I have met many people who use to be called a nerd, and even if they don't seem to be popular by the several; I am very impressed over their knowledge.
      They know much more than me, and I find it very interesting to talk with them.

      I have also been called a nerd, but I have to admit that my ability to do such things as programming, is propably much lower than the majority of nerds.
      But it is no doubt that I like to use computers, though.

      When someone call me a nerd, I feel happy in the most cases.

      I would refer to Evanescent as an 'Active Community Member'. There is no need to offend someone just because of their post count, besides most of the posts he has made have been on-topic and informative.

      The definition of post-whore on this forum is Paperdoll, which is ironic since he/she supposedly hates post-whores.

      How on earth, under the sun can you call Paperdoll a post-whore?! Of all the things that could come under the \"downright damn lies\" section, this tops it. Paperdoll's posts have never, not even once been \"post whorey\". If you had to define post whore, Paperdoll would never come under it. Ever. That's just tripe. Utter bloody nonsense. Hogwash. Propaganda. Foolishness. Stuff.

      I have been labelled a post-whore by a few people and I don't appreciate it. I know that post count doesn't matter, and I know that being here longer and contributing to the forum will gain me respect. I know for a while a few of my posts were pointless and I apoligise for this. I will now try to make sure that each post will contribute to the topic. But i will not slow down, I like being active. So if my posts are meaningful will you please stop calling me a post whore. All I hope to do is gain respect. Thank you for your time.
      I expect what I'm about to say may upset you. But these are simply facts I have toiled to put together: hard, solid evidence derived from the \"view all posts by author\" button. If you are upset about this, then too bad. It's true.

      Firstly:
      552 posts.
      22 days on this forum (as of the time of this writing).
      A total of 25.09 posts a day, which is marginally higher than the top poster (Lowercase) in the forum.

      If that dosen't already qualifiy as a post whore, then I don't know what does. You've not even been here a month, and already you have 522 posts. That's too many- way, way too many posts in my opinon.

      I would be more inclined to not think of you as a \"post whore\" if, after looking at your \"all posts\" section, they did not mostly consist of posts such as [all real posts by you]:

      Cool
      Puppies?
      that's
      Oh
      (Award: Most shortest post).

      Someones face?
      Already seen that one.
      Ready and waiting.
      Probably not........
      No i am just having a bit of fun.
      k gotcha
      tose are awesome
      Lol that is the truth
      (NOTE: lol = BAD).

      yeah that part rocked good job
      And that collection is from the first four pages of your "all posts" section (as of the time of this writing). That, in my opinon, is extremely too many, almost bordering on spamming (imo).

      However, you have indeed made a few posts that do contribute to the forum, however they are so far between each other that I don't think they counterweigh any of your "post whorey" posts whatsoever.

      I expect you are not doing this on purpose- I'm all too pleased that you are enthuastic about our forum and wish to contribtue to it. However, it is probably in your best interests to lay off "clicking reply" for a while, and stagger your posts a bit, and think them out and add more to them. Your behaviour would be all too acceptable in a chatroom, perhaps, where the text is not thought out as thoroughly. However, in a forum you have the luxury of time on your side, and I would hope you use it to it's full potential, exploiting it to create some fantastic, witty and fantastically comprehendable posts.

      I believe enteriely in gauging somebody by their personality and their posts- not their avatar, signature, post count or anything else that comes to mind.

      I expect we are all guilty of making a few "post whorey" posts at some stage- we've all made the odd "okay" or "yup " posts once in a while, but we've made some nice, long and proper posts to the forum too. My posts aren't as long as most; but they are instead thought out to be as short as possible - because humor is better that way, and I crave to provide it.

      Sorry if this has insulted you, and this is my opinon (with some hard, solid facts thrown in), and I believe you will find that there are many people who do not think of you as a post whore- but don't get upset because I do.

      Also, may I add when I first clicked "profile" on you, I genuinely fell out of my chair when I saw how many posts you have made in such as short timespan.

      And then they all lived happily ever after, except a few who attempted to shut me up by saying "no he isn't" (i expect).

      1st, how much do you know about htis forums history?

      2nd, Evanescent. I would've posted a long winded post about this whole subject but I ended up deleting it, and I'll say this instead.

      You've been here for 22 days, you have 500+ posts, 75% of them are less then 15 characters long. And people now have begun to notice, and we generally frown upon such behavior.

      That said, you know we're very forgiving here, once people change and shape up and act more mature. So i'm sure you got the message and I hope to see you post intelligent and insightfull posts, and keep the spam to senseless banter/whatever anime forum you go to.

      Kaniaz: Now come on, that's a bit harsh isn't it? Just because he gives short answers, it's not fair to gang up on him. I mean, it's not like all 552 posts are like that. Granted, there is a degree of innane bantering, 2-word lewd comments, and a number of "lol"s (hang with me Evanescent, I promise I'm actually defending you here ). But there are also legitimate questions, validations, and genuine helpful information. So what if he goofs around and doesn't leave paragraphs for answers? That's just his personality, and he shouldn't be condemed to wear the scarlet "W" as punishment.

      ...steps off soapbox...

      Evanescent: I agree, you should just ignore the "labelers". You and I both know that you have plenty of beneficial things to say here at dreamviews.
