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

Thats because you are on here alot. Nairb of all the lounge mods, I give you the most props, I see your name under the Users Browsing This Forum more than almost anyone.

i agree with trees and Larry, besides i dont think its that big of an issue because i still consider myself to be new and i know that those numbers don't mean much. besides the people that have a lot of # are always in here, and not in the other forums were actual advise is given (not that i haven't gotten any good advise her) so people that need advise will go to the appropriate forum.
my two cents

Funny, every time I look to the left and see an avatar, all I see is the word "POSTS" and a number.

I didn't realize what it meant to say was "POSTS TOWARDS THE PRODUCTIVE GROWTH OF HOTRODDING KNOWLEDGE".

Thanks for making that segregation. As if we don't have enough of that going on these days. I'm no longer a man. I'm a white, 25 year old, middle-class, educated, agnostic, democratic, non-smoking, man.

And now I'm only worth my benefit to knowledge, not socialization. Great.

Yes, that's my two year old daughter, Madison. I'm doing a precision toe nail painting job. She thought that was pretty cool.

Those itty bitty toe nails makes it hard not to just paint the entire toe.

I don't really mind. If Jon wants people to look at my posts and judge me by how much I post in the tech forums only, so be it. Just because I READ more than I ASK or TELL in the tech section does not mean that I'm not ACTIVE on the site though. That's where it becomes a little misleading.

Jon, can you at least change the data under my title from POSTS to POSTS IN TECHNICAL SECTION? I wouldn't want to give people the wrong idea.

I understand you guys lost a lot of posts in your post count, as did many people, including myself. Your posts did not disappear, and people can always check how many Lounge posts you have by using the search engine.

The current post count includes all technical forums, the Site Suggestions and Help forum, the Upcoming Shows forum, and the Moderator forum. These are forums that are generally used to make a contribution to the site, either by asking/answering a tech question, informing members of upcoming hotrodding events, or by contributing ideas or solutions to the management of this website.

We are happy to have Lounge participation, and while some Lounge threads certainly contribute to the overall atmosphere on this website, many of them do not. Therefore, in an effort to improve the GENERAL accuracy of the post count as a ROUGH status/seniority/reliability/knowledge assessment tool, Lounge posts have been removed.

Good points from many....Is the post count an issue??
Why are we going here?
I wouldn't mind them deleted.

I don't swim around the lounge looking to boost my count. Whenever I open the HR.com page I click on new posts and reply to whatever seems interesting or whatever question I can answer.
