Qt3 member posting statistics

Way to pad your post count there Koontz.

Brian where’s the analysis of these numbers?

Vaguely interesting, thank you Brian.

Wow, I had no idea I talked so much.

Less then 10 posts a day over 4 different forums…that’s really not much. I just never take a day off from work or posting. Its not that I talk more, I am simply consistently free to yammer.

wrong thread.

Wow, Sparky has Photoshopped 660 different pictures of Tom Chick and/or Derek Smart.

I’d like to thank unemployment, deflation, the lack of good games…

The sad thing is I had to quit gaming so I would have more time to post.

I vow to make more inconsequential posts.

Whoo hoo! I made the top 10! (Barely)

Yeah, but what I want to see is a content analysis of signal-to-noise for each poster. And I’m sure we all agree Brian is just the guy to do that! :)

Ah, but what constitutes signal and what is noise? That’s easy enough to decide when processing a fourier transform infrared spectrogram (something I was doing five minutes ago, which is why I use it as an example), but not so simple in a free-wheelin’, good-timin’ game-lovin’ kind-o-place like QT3. :)

I vow to make more inconsequential posts.[/quote]

That’s a good start. Although, I was not aware that thoughts of great consequence was a requirement to post on a message board.

…said the man who proves the rule.

I’d like to point out that the gap between Tyjenks and everyone else is some kind of Nolan-Ryan style record; no one else is even close.

I have something else in mind for her.

Don’t give up hope Jason. Records were made to be broken.

When Brian finds the time, he can do some additional research to let us know what the other records are:

Most posts in a single day
Most posts in a single thread
Most threads with no responses
Most times being banned by Tom

I also thought about having male and female categories but seeing that Jessica, Denice and Sparky make up the entire female contingent, they can just compete with the guys.

I hate to say it but I do check out my post count from time to time. A couple of weeks ago I thought I had a shot at the top 50 and even got to 51 at one point, but I guess EASports had some downtime and Jim Preston picked up the pace and passed me. I’m off work till Monday so watch out Jim, Tom and Rob :D

Now that voltaic & derek are gone - I’m #22!!!

Please edit your post to reflect that Brian. Tom banned them - they should be stricken from the records, or do you defy tom’s wishes?
