See where all this post count talk got you? Now everyone is equal. Nobody is better than anyone else just because of a silly number of posts.

Maybe they took my word seriously?

if you think about it, even just having post counts alone encourage it.. which is why some forums disable it. Clearly, SOME people are just trying to get to the top anyway, w/o my idea.

OK first of all, when we talk about our post counts, we are just kidding most of the time, and we aren't that serious about it. its just for FUN. Its sort of a game. Do you see me at the same amount as efs now? I dont think so.. OOps actually you can't se anything at all because you took it away.. oops!

second of all, we aren't the only one who talk about it. You talk about your posts too Hivolt! And Ian always talked about how he posted mad, and how he needs to post. You all wanted to get to the top.. comon it wasnt just a couple people. I think HiVolt even created a thread when he got to a certain number but I dont remember.

Third of all, I thought you were cool with all of this anyway! You took it in fun (HiVolt) and you'd say "Oh dem crazy kids" and stuff so I didn't think I was doing anything wrong;and I wasnt.

Fourth of all, the main thing is that yous houldn't have taken it away because it was a FUN thing that YOU even enjoyed too. Don't deny it. So you know what thanks alot for taking some fun out of the forum.

Thats what I have to say. But I think what you did was really childish. I think you were just trying to show us who's boss, and we already know who is, so it was really childish.

man **** y'all. You guys took something that was fun for a few people who just happened to have been a helluva lot younger than you, especially since it was all playful and in fun, nohing else, and ruined it because you guys couldn't handle anyone thinking and behaving differently from you.

I Think Thats Really Sad.

You can still just simply click the profile of a user, which is under each post, and see their post count.

If you must know, I didn't do it, so dont jump to conclusions if you dont know the facts.

This kind of "point the finger" attitude on the forum over the past little while has been rather pathetic.

So I guess it means all of you will stop posting, since there is no reward, no sense in posting anything if a little number doesnt increase under your avatar, right?

Well I just wanted to point out that it wasn't just us who were talking about the posting. You talk about "Hey now we are equal" and "Look where all yoru post takl got you", when you talked about your post count too. So i just want to point out the fact that me, ef, and scorpio weren't the only ones talking about it. So were some of the "first generation" chatters.

Mad dog, Ian, YOU HIvolt, lots of people. But like I said, this whole thing was in good fun, so you shouldn't have taken it so seriously. It's not like we want to take over the forum or something.

Well, I guess I hafta agree with the moderators about this. Lately, everyone has been brawling against each other over something as silly as post counts! Now, we won't have as many fights and it will be a place where we can talk about the show and not the stupid post counts and who's on the top of the Post Count list and what not

This forum is made for people to get to know other MADtv fans and talk about the show and what they like about it and stuff. People take the post count thing seriously and they get into all these disagreeements about it. I guess it was just for the best.

Well said. There have been too many posts like "you just post nonsense to up your post count", and "I just passed you so haha", "my post average is better than yours so in your face", blah.

Post counts shouldn't be a competition. You should just be posting to add to the conversation or whatever, not to compete for the highest poster because when you do that, thats where the nonsense posts come in. What's wrong, can't you post here w/o competing for top poster, it couldn't have been THAT much fun competing.

Competition is a good reason to disable the post counts.
