Sadly. Rankism is a huge problem in online forums, and I often suffer the most from it. I tend to post slowly so many people see me as a person that is not respected.

EDIT: FINALLY! After over three months I have finally shed from my black color and turned to a sleek, hot pink. So, thirty-seven is when a Newbie becomes a so-called "respected" member of the forums, eh? :smileytongue:

Not at all. I get people asking me why my post count is so high but that's down to interest, not because they respect.

Respect comes from the actions you do and if you show respect to other people too. Not from how big your post count is.

i think to some people on the psu, post count does get more respect.
For some, its the equal system.
For me, i gain respect through interaction. If we've had a little pm disscussion or something, you've gained more respect from me than anyother 'person' on the forums...means everyone else is like a neutral bot to me...:robothappy:

High post count does not equal respect.  The user I had the most respect for was Guenhwyvar1000.  He was a legend over at the Ratchet boards.  He only had about 3000 posts.  I've never once seen him spam or flame anybody.  Not once ever.  His posts went into great detail, and always had the info you were looking for.  I don't think I've seen a more respected user at the PSU.  Sadly, he hasn't been here for over a year.
 
Any chump can make 100 posts a night.  Many of us have done that.  And there are a lot of people who have made 10,000 posts in one year.  OK, so what?  It's a number.  That doesn't earn you any respect.  Quality posts and the willingness to help others earns respect.  You have to have the knowledge and then be able to pass that knowledge on to others.  Do that and you will be respected.

Post count here is irrelevant in regards to respect on the forums. If you want to be respected in the community, I suggest that you treat others on the forums the same as you wish to be treated. The number of posts next to your name means absolutely nothing more other than the number of postings you've made.

That's about all it means.  You'd have to look into the quality of the particular posts before you could determine anything by looking at them.


Agreed. I've seen many posters here with high post counts, yet the quality of their posts is less than stellar. I have also seen posters here with lower post counts, and their posts are always enjoyable to read. So more post count only means more posts, and has nothing to do with the quality of those posts.
