Do you ever look at this and then feel vaguely embarrassed if you're at the top?

The last time I looked was when I was testing all the forum buttons worked when it was glitchy - although I did accidentally press that link instead of the mod team link one day, but I wasn't particularly interested.

I'm assuming you are or were the top poster then?

I'm not sure why its even there.... does anybody really get interested in that stuff?

Is it like a league table where if you clock enough up posts you get rewarded with being top of the charts and then if you do really well you get a nice new mountain under your name?

Or could it be a bad thing to be top in which case do we get given a penalty ban for a while as punishment for talking too much? :lol:

I end up all over the place on this bloomin iPad if I don't touch the screen accurately enough, and yeah, came across my name right at the top. In fact, I'm not helping myself right now, am I?

I'm sure I should leave the forum, anyway, coz I seem to have an annoying ability to take a perfectly respectable thread and lower its tone by several degrees :lol:

That's a lame excuse :lol:

I'd look at it like this - if you are the top poster one day and its cuz you put up something interesting, or something that made people laugh, or something intelligent, or something helpful - or whatever word you wanna pick then its alright innit?

Cuz int that the whole point? To interact and discuss stuff, some people wanna rant, some want help or advice, some want conversation or fun or just to know someone is listening and stuff - lots of things - I'm not great on examples this morning as I'm shattered...

I think the other point is that if you got something out of it too then its ok if you posted the most posts one day.

Yeah, it was just an excuse, coz actually my life revolves around the accolade of being top poster.

Are you two going to battle for the top spot then - or are you both avoiding saying anything for fear of making the list :lol:

Yeah you are one of the "two" I referred to lol - its like watching a movie with some popcorn and a Pepsi and much better than the last couple of films I watched :pepsi:

Somebody told me that this forum used to rank its members at one time - now that could cause issues!!!

I'm also intrigued why nobody else has said anything here - my position is that I really don't check the "Todays Top Posters" link but I would have thought others would... or that they'd have some level of opinion... or questions such as:

Why is it even there?
What is it for?
How many people look at it?
What does it achieve?
Why is it virtually hidden at the bottom of the page with the 'mod team' and 'overall top posters' links that are there either side of it?
Why not make it clearer?
Or have fun with it?

Just a few thoughts :lol:

Do you mean line them up??, That really is Aspie behaviour!!!

I don't know either, just having a bit of fun. :bounce:

If it was based on word count, then the stats would be completely different.

The mental imagery of that is pretty damn funny :lol: it'd be chaos cuz we might all have different systems ;)

I think I should have used the word "rate" instead of "rank" - from what I gather it was about saying who was a good or respected forum member or something like that - I guess if it is true and this did used to happen it could get pretty unfair.

If it was based on word count, then the stats would be completely different.


Yeah I can think of one or two people who'd top that list some weeks :devil:

I see Mannify is trying to keep her 666 still - is there another reason why she's achieved and then stuck with that number for the day?!? Should we be worried :whistle: I for one might be more comfortable when she hits 703 :ph34r:

How do you know she's still on 666?

I'm worried that she could have a seriously bitten lip.

It was difficult. Which did I value the most - 'top poster' or 666? You'll be relieved to know I've eschewed 666. Raydon, you've guided me towards more wholesome values, and I'm back in the 'top poster' running.
