Well, if we consider AT to be another incarnation of AO I probably have between 8 and 900 posts all together. Im much more of a lurker.
But back on the old AO I had just got up over 650 mark before the data base crashed and we all reset. It took me about a year and a half to get up to 650 posts because spamming wasn't tolerated at all in those days.
I say we ask the admins if we can start making our own threads(even if there are already threads on the topic) and just say in the first post that if anyone posts anything that does not contribute to the discussion(like just saying their opinion on the first post and then leaving) we can have those posts deleted from the thread. Eh, Im having trouble typing my thoughts on this idea, but do you guys see what Im getting at? Just to make a few threads that might actually be worth reading every post in and make people actually want to say what they think without being afraid no one will even read/comment on their post.
