I don't know the answer to your question. However I think post count titles just promote spamming, or post count farming, or whatever you want to call it. Wouldn't it be better to get rid of them altogether? That might increase the credibility of these kind of forums as discussion forums, and not another place to accumulate stuff, like RPs & Realm Ranks, XP, GP, or craft level. What does the post count title actually mean to anyone?... sure, it would identify the moderators and GOA peeps which is useful... but the rest of us?

BW was:
Penge Resident
Brentford Resident (20+ posts)
Phnarrgos Resident (100+ posts)
Talks too Much! (500+ posts)
Earther (1200+ posts)
Forum Diety (3000+ posts)
Wij Wannabe (10000+ posts)

Here its:
Pawn
Aim
Sun
Thor
Witch
Werewolf
Viking
(There is no one higher than Viking as far as Im aware)

I do not know the exact post counts for this forum, however if you post to gain post count titles then you will soon achieve the grand title of 'Banned from Freddyshouse'. :p

With regards to this comment, I think that Deebs and Bigfoot still want people to care about their title, as it will hopefully lead to more people paying the £10 to get a custom title. As far as I'm aware that £10 donation is the sole income this forum recieves, so to keep it running it really needs sad people like myself who are prepared to pay - just to get a nicer title.

I'm such a n00b!... I didn't even know you could pay to have a custom title as upkeep for the forums! Well, I'm all for people paying their money for custom titles to keep these forums going, but I'm still against people raking up posts to get a new post-rank. Thanks for educating me... I might have to go away and think up a custom title for myself! :D Although, I'm sure people who know me will have their own ideas! :eek7:

Post count title have now been changed, there are now only three apparantly.

The third is unknown, the fewer titles is probably to put lesser emphasis on post count.

Edit: Third is Scrounging Bastard. Apparantly.

I suppose there's a certain strange kind of irony in a thread about anti-postcount and poster titles turning into a place for people to +1. :eek6: . The irony is appreciated! :D
