Maybe that's what happened. Someone took that note seriously and shot Jay.

Jay???

Sorry. Accepted a new job and moved last weekend. Been a bit busy.

All I'm going to say is this: I've seen Shimraa's sig image of the baby getting pwned by Zangief elsewhere, and it's awesome.

Are you still planning on doing away with rankings (or at least relegating post count to the user profile)? It doesn't seem to be a problem anymore and I think it would be a shame to lose it.

I agree. I think it should be kept. It's always been a fun little competition and source of conversation, and since nobody seems to be abusing it, taking it away will take away a fun part of the forum.

To my eyes someone IS kinda abusing this... 'soem wookie' with a ginormous signature image.

Legitimate complaint, but I'm not sure what that has to do with post count.

The image size was an afterthought. Most of the posts are a very few words of either some total non sequitur or something so vaguely related to the thread that it smacks of boosting posts. Luckily it seems kind of one-sided and there doesn't appear to be an out-and-out post count war going on.

I don't think the particular poster you are referring to is actually all that concerned about his post ranking - he just likes to post (non-sensically or otherwise). Yeah, it can get a bit annoying, but I don't think taking away post count/rankings will help. And Nobody seemed to mind Gaffer and I's post 'war'. In fact, quite a few people got involved, poking fun at me when Gaffer was catching up at me, congratulating me when I widened the gap, etc. It was all good-natured fun.

The main reason post count was bought into question was a certain banned memeber whose name we shall not mention, but it seems to have been a one off. Is he going to be allowed to ruin everybody's fun even when he's no longer here?

And besides, our war hasn't been us just posting for the sole purpose of our post counts rising. We've just been posting legitimately as much as possible with a fun side effect of our post count relationship ever-changing.

Yes, but the gap is ever-changing. And I was ahead of you for a day or two.
