Are postcount 'milestones' important to you, for example 100, 500, 1000, etc.? Or do you tend to just skip over them completely?

Another question, does postcount as a whole matter to you or could you not care less about how many posts you've made on here?

For me, the only real important postcount milestone I've had was at 15 posts because that's when you're able to start posting links, lol.

Fire away. And yes this is my 500th post.

Woo 500th post!

I actually had no idea you couldn't post links before your fifteenth lol - that's a weird one.

Anyway, postcount sort of matters to me, but it sort of doesn't. I think it definitely makes you feel like less of a noob if you have a high postcount, which can only be a good thing - however I'm not sure that the milestones mean all that much to me.

That said, the 100 mark meant a lot to me because I wanted to make claims lol.

When I first joined I was in a hurry to get 1000 because I thought I would look like more of a regular member that way, but then I reached it and realized nothing was different. Now though I don't care. I honestly don't even know what my post count is right now as I type this.

Another question, does postcount as a whole matter to you or could you not care less about how many posts you've made on here?
I care in the sense of the larger my post count gets the more I believe I really need to quit being here. :(

Post counts are important to me, but not the hundreds. Only every thousand.

I don't care about reaching a particular amount ending in zeros; but having made a nonspecific 'thousands of posts' over the course of years is something I feel I can take some pride in as a member of this site.

I WANT 1000000 POSTS NAO!!!

But having more post counts is important I guess because it shows how much you've contributed to this community.

I care about post count to the extent that it can amuse me with the statistical playthings it provides me with. I do not use it significantly to evaluate a person's forum status or knowledge of the forum's functions, if I even use it for that at all. I usually use how they carry themselves around the forum for those.

Meh, having a relatively high postcount at least shows that you're active on the site. But, it's not that important. By the way, according to the members list, the user with the highest postcount is Ryoutarou with 30,417 posts. But, I really don't care. I have a constantly growing postcount, that's all that matters.

I haven't hit one in years, lol. It's not like it matters! I personally believe someone with 500 great, substantiative posts or even just a presence on IRC can contribute plenty to the community, and I have a crazy high post count and I haven't been active in a long time. Moreover, I bet if certain forums had post count enabled I'd probably be close to 20k. So it really doesn't show much except I posted here a lot, in, what, 2005-6? ^^;; I still think they're something worth celebrating, just not taking über super seriously! After all, it is exciting to look at your post count and see Posts: 10,000. But at the end of the day it doesn't really matter.

I might be wrong, but if I remember correctly, it's to cripple spambots and advertisers.

ETA: Organising the Members List by posts, why am I not surprised by who's at 30k...?

I thought 10k posts was pretty cool, cause I've always wanted to catch up to Went's post count for some reason. Now I'm 12k and he's just now hitting 11k so I find that funny. I don't really care about post count, but it is kinda cool hitting something huge like 10k.

The time I reached 1000 posts here I got pretty excited about it, anything after that didn't really feel like anything though xD

I remember I was curious how many I actually had so I calculated all the clubs I posted in and it was over 7000 or something, I don't quite remember but it was a lot (and a few years ago). They don't count though because it was in member fanclubs haha. So since my posts never really counted or showed how active I was as a member, I never really cared about them. Hitting cool even numbers like 1000 or 2000 is fun to see though :)

I like watching my count go up but I don't put much stock in it. :3;

Post count makes me see people differently, but not in the way most people say. If I see someone with 20 posts contributing in the same way as someone with 5,000 posts, I'll be much more impressed by them. In the same vein, if I see someone with thousands of posts that posts particularly badly, I'll be much more put off than a new person posting badly.

I don't really celebrate them much unless they're major stones...like 1k or a 5k marker.

Other than that it's more like..."Oh look, that was my XXXXth post." *edits post to include mention of that fact*

I don't really care about them much. Sure it's nice to look at every once in a while, but like other users said, at the end of the day it doesn't matter. It doesn't really show anything beside you're pretty active in the posting area of the forum.

My own post count? Quality > quantity; I couldn't care less.

The post-count of others? I like it when I see an intelligent member with a small post-count, because most of the time it means they're new or just-returning. So I'll have a new member to pay some interest to. But really the join date is more useful in that sense, so the post count really is useless.

Yes, I set post count goals. My current goal is 1,000 posts. I don't really obsess over post count, but I do set goals, which is a good way to make sure that I'm actively post, and I joined in 2008 and made huge gaps between posts, so I have a pretty low post count for my join date, so I want to fix that. I try to make my post count come naturally, so I try to post meaningfully. I guess post count is just a way to set goals for me.

Postcount itself doesn't really mean that much to me, i'll usually notice when i'm about to hit a miltstone though. Like for example i'm getting close to 1000 posts.
Saying that though the 1000 post milestone does mean something to me because i want to hit it before my pair does >:D

I prefer quality over quantity, like I said, I cared about postcount when I first joined,

I couldn't care less about post counts. One person is not smarter or nicer or whatever than another because they have 10000 posts and the other has 2000.

I never had post count milestones while I was here. I'm here to have fun and make friends, not to spam and flood this place with posts.

Not really. I remember when I first joined it was like.
"ZOMG *number* POSTS YAYYY"
But now, I really dont care, it's not like anyone really cares how many posts someones made.

Though I want 4000 so I can have blogs js.
