Windows 7: What annoys you?

You can get a higher post count by asking a lot of questions or moving a conversation along to gain more information. I've always been embarassed by having such a high post count compared to others similarly ranked who have half the posts. But I also am obsessive enough I will discuss an issue to full comprehension and comment when I probably should bite my lip. If I've made a pest of myself I've hopefully also learned something.

The badging system rewards hard work and hopefully excellence, but we could use an Excellence program besides. It should be the goal of the Forums, not a byproduct.

Brink, yourself and many others are in a class of their own.

So don't sweat it.

Once you hit 2K it doesn't matter anyway.

My first 2K had less than 100 posts in the Chill Room.

The forum was a lot busier back in late 2010.
At least with problems I could help.

About postcount, I am very active over two years, which made my postcount tending towards 10,000 . I am not afraid of that my postcount is that high. I like to talk with others, which rolled it away.

About reps, I am a GFX team member, and a huge percentage of the reps came from making sigs and wallpapers. So if you judge my knowledge based on the repcounts, too, you will be misguided .

What stands in a nutshell .... I am worthless, inspite of having such a big postcount and repcount .

But I adore the affiliation that I get from you guys . I am really proud to be a part of this forums.

Archie, you give bad information when you say you're worthless. I see you post in threads where you are the only one who recounts the Best Practice for the repair needed. This can often be missing from lengthy threads where everything is thrown at the wall. Without the known and established Best Practice being brought to bear we are missing Excellence. You bring the Excellence.

Thanks for the overwhelming appreciation, Greg . A little word from you means a complete epic to me. And thank you Mike and Randy for all your support.

What actually annoy me is the crusade against postcounts , I am a post nut, you know I post for if I could help, and to keep in touch with you guys, and sometimes for exchange of opinions . I never post much to be judged as a highly knowledgeable person ... it just comes from within . At the same time, if posting in chillout is that bad, there would not be a chillout room. Admins and mods would not have allowed it in that case, as I think .

So happy posting, guys

The post count is not necessarily a good indication of the quality of users posts. Some people just post to be posting and jack up their post count. I normally don't post to just say, I agree. Some topics have too many "I agree" posts which I believe it just a post count post..

I don't believe that posts should be counted in the chillout or most of the non-technical topics.

Now I have said it. I have a thick skin.

meh, what is the problem with a high post count?

it's purely an indication of how many posts you've made.

if somebody makes a lot of posts, then they'll have a high post count - simple. if you're interpreting a high post count to mean anything else, then sir, you are mistaken.

and why should a chillout post not count towards the total? a post is a post. the fact that rep can't be given in the chillout room is enough.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
