Now that we can count our posts again, many are being called (and very possibly are) "post padders."

Shame we've survived so long without being counted and as soon as we count again we immediately try to build up our posts to the highest point. :rolleyes:

Oh well...tis the way of life I suppose, but lets not let it get out of hand. We have enough rivalrys lets not let the post number get in the way.

"Are you now or have you ever been a post padder?" :p

I never padded posts because I was and am an Eternal padawan. But now that my posts are counting, it's a little scary to realize how often I am in here.

I go through phases. I may post 50 times a day, or 50 times in 3 months.

Personally I think it is kind of a fun challenge to see how many meaningful, informative posts I can make without blatantly padding them. (except for that post in the S thread:)).

I am going to go through one section every day I can and try to post something in each thread that i can make a positive contribution to. I started with this section last night and there were only about 4 or 5 threads that I could not add to in a positive way.

As long as your post says more than "LOL," "stupid," "...," or is just a smiley, it's okay by me.

LOL at that stupid... :) !!!

It seems like "post padder" has become the new "scalper" term.

yes........ :)

Was that meaningful enough?

I think foam rubber is a good material for padding posts......;)

I agree they should use those bio-degradable peanuts to pad posts. :p

I really don't care about the ranking or post counting.I just want to talk about Star Wars,thats what this is all about anyway.I think its great to talk about and with others who love Star Wars as much as I do.Lets not worry about status and get on the real posting about Star Wars:)

post-padding issues from way-back-when... remember when they almost got rid of post counts again?

that rhymed!

Could have made a Haiku vyn

I don't pad.

08-28-2005, 02:33 AM
I would like to post Padme.

I wish Obi-Don would post more, I remeber him from back in the day and I don't see him on here much anymore. I'm talkin' pre-AOTC. :)

There were a lot of old timers here in this thread.

I like the dow bubbles. They make me laugh

Post-padding is the crime of the 21st Century. It is the scourge of academia and all good nations of this Earth must pool their resources together and put a stop to this insanity.

I love this quote. :thumbsup:

There has been quite a bit of digging up old threads lately. I almost did it myself this weekend while I was looking at all of the old Poll threads.

Only two posts from LBC? I could swear I've read hundreds more. :confused:

Isn't it ironic that a thread about post padding is in a forum where posts don't count?

08-29-2005, 09:40 PM
ummm....they do count in here. :whip: :beard:

Nice observation Chux, I registered a second screenname over two years ago on this site, when I had major problems with my old computer. Seemed that I could log on to the site with my old name, but couldn't post for whatever reason.

So I went on a different computer today to post and they had me logged in under that second screename, which by the way, if a mod reads this, can delete.

That's why Slicker made that post KH, he's trying to sneak in a few freebies to his count. lol lol lol

ummm....they do count in here. :whip: :beard:Damn. My bad I thought Gen. Discussion didn't count. I guess I'm the epitamy of a post padder.:bandit:

08-30-2005, 10:19 AM
I didn't think they counted here, either. Hmmmmmm....

08-30-2005, 11:59 AM
Post padding...? No need. I'm confident about my manhood and don't need to resport to such retarded games.
