    So its 100 posts that get you "promoted"? I've been on this forum a year next month but I only post if I feel like I have something somewhat relivent to say or a question.

    I found a simpsons pic I really want as an avatar!

    I don't think anyone really knows if there is a set number or not. From what I understand sometimes it's being in the right place at the right time. I just made that joke since it's close to promotion time. Just like you, I've been an avid reader of the forum for a very long time and totally agree with you and a lot of other posters. I only contribute when I feel I can add something (hopefully positive or in fun) to the conversation.

    I see you have been a long time forum member! I won't feel as bad about my year now! Good luck :)

    Or you could write a series of one word posts , forming a sentence. Wait! Is there a rule against that?

    Well I hope you make it and congrats on your more than 100 posts.

    How does this "promotion" thing works? I was told in another thread that "promotions" are granted around the 20th of each month. Do we have to apply? Didn't realize that I needed it and was trying to insert an avatar and when it didn't work going crazy trying to "fix" till I heard about "promotion".

    Anyone knows why this is necessary? If an avatar doesn't fit with the forum rules, wouldn't be easy for the mods to delete it?

    U can type an answer on all the latest threads.

    Do this in the forum of a question with no less than one grammar/spelling correction and you'll have my blessing.

    I don't think this is possible. People seem to be pretty darned proud of their ignorance. In fact, they act like it's a right of passage.

    It's not 100 exactly. I think I was around 75ish when I got my promotion. On the 22nd of the month if you have 'enough' posts you'll get a PM from the mods saying Congrats you can now post pics and choose an avatar, etc.

    Let me check how high my post count is.

    I'm at 193 in less than 2 months. Not difficult at all. Just post posts that nobody cares about and you will skate along the way.

    I don't think it will take that long to reach 100 posts. But now if you look at the post count of some people : 4000, 6000 and even 17000 :shock: .
    He only has that much posts because he controls the matrix :lol:

    I think I remember mwdalton posting sometime last month around promotion time that promotion depends more on quality rather than quantity, but I can't find the post.

    But here's a question, what is the significance of post count? I suppose it suggests longevity and/or active participation, but is that supposed to lend more weight to that person's posts? If so, I have to admit I don't follow that rule. I judge each post on its own merit and each poster on the accumulation of their posts I've personally read.

    Or maybe it has something to do with loyalty to the forum? (I've only participated in one other forum and they didn't really emphasize post count.)

    How would an automated system decipher what is quailty and isn't :lol: not even google has that kind of tech :lol:

    Didn't know it was automated; just remember the post. Entirely possible I'm wrong.
