flame on....

Dude, you padded your post count with more then a few useless ones. If you only have four words that have essentially nothing to do with the subject of the thread then keep your softmoric comments to yourself. All that you will succeed in doing is pissing off the gods here and get yourself a turn on the beating post (chained to it, not dishing out).

As I am certain that eyelikeart will tell you, I have many cases of whoop-a$$ just itching to be opened, as well as more then enough fuel for the flame thrower. A hobby of mine is scorching idiots, and, yes, I am psychotic.

in general, I fear the whole 500 post avatar thing contributes to more noise than anything... I'll have to rethink it all

Ha ha haaa!
Personally, arn, it's something a lot of us (including me :D ) semi-aspire to. It keeps your forums alive! It's a perk, we love it. In other words... PLEASE don't change it! At least not until I've had the chance to brag about my 500. ;) J/k.

No!!!
That's the only thing that keeps me going these days. It has given me hope to know that one day I too will have an avatar. If you take that away from me my life will be meaningless and I will fall into a bottomless pit of self-loathing and despair...:(

Anyway, I agree. People pad their post count to try to get to 500 ( I try to refrain, but we'll se what happens when I get a little closer ;) ). It is nice as an acknowledgement of your commitment to the site to be allowed an avatar.
It's up to you, but I think overall it remains a positive aspect of these forums.
They add more personality.

Besides, who's ever gonna get ahead of eye? That guy rules as the most prolific poster!!

ok... new rule...

If someone seems to be clearly padding their posts... they will be docked 100 posts from their post count.

I'll let mac15 slide... but mac15, and others - please refrain from one word/ few word posts... or multiple posts when one post would suffice...

report suspicious posts via "report this post to a moderator" links

Geesh! I looked at you 2 days ago, and I was passed your post count by about 5. Now all the sudden, he boosted up to 500?!? I think he got mad that I might beat him there. I say...enough with the USELESS posts!

What a post! I think that was a gimme! As for scroll wheels, apple should make one that is optical! You kinda move your finger over the light, and it works like a scroller!

If you need 500 posts to get an avatar, how come mac15 managed to get one when he has 496 posts? Well, that's what my browser tells me anyway...

Im assuming here (from expierence) that arn trashed his useless posts after he got his avatar....which knocked him down in post got but his avatar was kept.

I would like to apologize for any short posts I have made, I just read arn's message.
Like arn said... some of his useless posts got trashed but he got to keep his avatar. This put him below 500 but with avatar.
