I'm presuming it didn't and that the person was lieing

They lied to you, & to be honest if this Thread is genuine & you're really asking you were pretty stupid to believe them too. Think about it, what do you think actually changes or happens when you go from 999 posts to 1,000 posts? I'll tell you, nowt, zilch, nada, zero.

 

Respect has to be earned here, it doesn't come with post counts or likes (Kudos) or anything else like that, it comes with time & with experience.

 

Also stop trying too hard, for example, this Thread!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, not to be a **bleep** or anything, but what kind of person are you if you have to ask if you are respected.

 

Another thing... Why do you even care if anybody here respects you. Everybody here is just people on the internet. What does their opinion matter in the long run anyway!

In order to earn respect on the PlayStation Forums is to conduct and carry yourself in a positive manner such as posting and engaging in interesting and thought-provoking discussions, helping out other users when they need it, showing respect to yourself and others, and leading by example.

 

Just like @bob-maul has said to you before, post counts can make you recognizable, but not respected. I also agree with @BRIT-KO that respect doesn't come with likes and post counts, but with a lot of time, effort, and experience being on the PlayStation Community Forums.

I do not know you well Fletcher. But What @younginflavor18 said is true and I suggest you to think about what he said.

 

Also, similiarly to what @Talented-Taco said, you do not need to ask if people respect you or not. Every action has a reaction (sorry for the overuse of this phrase). If people respect you, you'll notice it. If people do not, you'll notice it. But respect is defined and established differently, depending on the person.

The best way to achieve respect on theses forums is to stay steadily behind folks behind. ..

No wait, that's the home forums.
Nvm, just don't let any of this affect yourself because that would be silly. Smiley Wink

I was mentioned by a person with almost ten thousand posts. I must be respected now.

One good comment can earn you more respect than 1,000 bad ones.  Key word there is "earn."  Respect is earned, not given because you reach some arbitrary post-count.

A high post count can show commitment ( or addiction ), but quality over quantity. 

How it should be, everybody should respect one another. Trolls and spammers are not to be respected ( not saying you're one ). Threads like this aren't very good for your reputation.

Post count is how you become recognizable. Not respected.


I respectfully disagree Bob. The emphasis here is largely "post count" hence the "Look At Me I Have 10000 Posts" threads. Should it be that way? No, but post count is the "kudos/likes" of Off-Topic, and that's what many hold in high regard here.
