It looks like you could if you went with trees idea, but it seems to not be worth waiting for.

Trees
Yes, he did. It accurately reflects the persons posts per forum, giving a good indication of how much knowledge they have pertaining to that specific forum. It would be helpful.

I have a hard time believing that he came up with that all by himself, he must have some Liberal friends out there.

He's a Republican you know, and here he is trying to increase the size of the government of this board!

Has anyone seen my spoon?

The pot needs stirred, and I can't find my spoon.

I like Trees idea if it's not too hard to do.

It seems like I'm on here all of the time, and I only have 1400 or so posts.

Now, what about you guys with 5000 posts?

I bet your butts have grown into the chair in front of your puters, either that or you type alot faster than I do.

While some of you were talking in the lounge today, I was helping solve world problems by porting a set of Chevy heads.

So, reducing post counts will help you save face if you have too many. It will make you look more productive.
