No Post Count for OTD
    #3149620 - 09/17/04 08:49 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

One thing overgrow.com has done lately is take away post counting from their version of OTD. I think it's actually a good idea. So I'm just throwing this idea out here, I'd like to hear your guys' opinions on this.

I think it's supposedly to cut down on post whoring, but that really doesn't matter, since more people are posting in the Pub lately.

My thoughts exactly.

well, i think their reason is because the focus of their site is cannabis cultivation and all topics concerning that specific thing. posts anywhere else don't really matter. i mean, otd is treated like a chat room anyway.

purpose? i'm not sure really. maybe to show that you actually contribute to the site? or maybe so puppets have a little bit harder time of coming up? i'm not saying it should happen to the shroomery, i'm just curious as to what you guys think about it.

Post count doesn't count towards anything anyways, so I;m not sure how it would affect anything.

I feel post counts show some proof of trustfulness. Reguardless of where the count was recieved, it shows the dedication of one to the site.

Not everyone here does stuff.

So to have their post counts excluded might induce someone to not trust them to trade a volume 8 Batman comic for a bar of soap.

I think that OTD and the Pub are valuable parts of the community. And the Shroomery is one of the best communities on the internet. Removing post counts in these places says to me that the community aspect of the site isn't as important as other parts, like growing.

So going on that, I can't say I like the idea...

not doing stuff doesn't mean you can't contribute to the informational part of the site.

and i don't think i'd trust anybody more just because they have 15,000 posts in OTD. is post count really that big of a deal to you guys?

Ok, not just doing stuff, but how about those with no hands on experience and never tried it? Should they be excluded from community post count?

i think post counts are irrelevant.
i don't see any point in doing this.

A lot of new members may look to the post count as a measure of trustworthiness. I know I did for a long while. They should probably be looking at the registration date though.

Which means you should buy my beacfront property in Nevada.

Right away. :tongue:


Trustworthiness has nothing to do with reg date or post count.  It's all about your interactions with the other people.  Those two snippets of info are just that....info on the person.  Nothing more.

I know my first year and a half hear were spent in Cult, Grow Logs, ODD, and Ethnos's. Now I spend most of my time in OTD. Almost 8000 of my 8400 posts have been in OTD, yet I retained my knowledge from the first 400. Just b/c someone posts in OTD a bunch, doesn't mean they don't know about the other stuff this site represents.

True, but it would be foolish of anyone to take my advice on cultivation(since I've never tried it). Good thing I don't post in those forums(though I sometimes post in General Questions, Trip Tips, and ODD).

See, I would hope that anyone spouting bullshit in a legitimate forum would be shot down immediately.

There should be a post count for mycology related posts & one for general discussion, so it is obvious who is who.
