    Community leader

    I was quickly glancing at the main page of this forum and i noticed it said "community leader" on the main page and it listed a few members. Do i need to beat the amount of posts that those current leaders have to get on there?

    Community Leaders are basically administrators, so no the amount of posts doesn't get you up there.

    If i posted non-stop all day i could only get 480 posts in correct? By the end of the month i'll only have 14,400 posts, it will take me 2 months of posting non stop to get to 28,400.

    I'm going to need lots of redbull....

    Anyone want to sponsor me??

    You'd get to meet some of the leaders that way.

    It would take a lot more than 2 months to get to 28,400 posts since you didn't include the time it takes for the bans to expire.

    I decided to do the math and assuming i did the calculations correctly....

    If i post about 30k then ill have contributed around 0.006% to all the posts on WHT. And furthermore, if i somehow did a new thread for each post, it would be around 3.9% of all the threads on WHT that were started by me. How awesome would that be? I'd probably get banned for life, but honestly WHT could just make an "example" out of me. And they could just place my name in a "sticky" or maybe in the "Rules" section of the site. I think that would be pretty awesome. And more importantly i think that would deserve a free t-shirt.

    Maybe i should start a fundraiser for my free t-shirt.....

    $0.01 for every 6 posts. I don't know what the deadline would be though... but maybe i could get people to pledge for 2-3 years so that way i won't get banned. After i do 30k posts though I would end up with $50.00 and finally i could get that free t-shirt PLUS 1 year of that premium membership.

    If you're paying for it though then it's not free.

    It's awesome to be able to edit your posts after a goodnight's sleep to correct spelling/grammar errors.

    DUDE!! I was about to add you on skype, and then i changed my mind because I thought it would just be a little too weird to just send you a message complimenting your posting work here on WHT.



    But I am definitely happy that you ran across this thread.

    You'll find soon enough that post count and knowledge/experience have very little to do with each other (not directed towards Aussie Bob because I don't know him which goes to show that post count doesn't even get you noticed sometimes ).

    It could also be that I mainly only view the Technical and Security forums now.

    I did it for the increased PM storage and the monogrammed swizzle sticks (on backorder they tell me).

    HAHA, good one bear!

    @OP: Why do you want to raise your post counts for some silly reason as a T-Shirt or anything for that matter? Just hangout, help others and just have an overall good time. I see WHT as a stress reliever, some people smoke, some people drink, I just surf WHT to see whats going around and help once in a while if I know how to.

    I am still more than 20 000 posts behind Old Man! But wait! He is old and I am young. I am confident of beating him 40 years later!

    I don't think any amount of time is possible, as I'm positive that a permanent ban will be executed instead.

    You need to be an animal to be a community leader.

    You got bear
    anon e mouse
    and SoftWareRevue
    which I'm sure something can be made out of that

    Also you need to go through their bosses upstairs iNET directly lol.

    Haha... Post counts mean nothing on WHT. If your here for Social then thats awesome. If your here to help out others then thats even better if your here to Advertise sure, but a post count will not increase your chance of a sale.
