Post counts, and titles based on them, are stupid in my opinion. Just because you type a lot or have a lot of excess time on your hands, doesn't make you a better brewer.

Who wants to be a better brewer when "Coolness" is involved...  :o

...and 4 minutes is NOT an excess amount of time... :P

Meh... I would mention the full moon but that was Wednesday or Thursday, high-strung
comes to mind, but what ever.

Denny had over 300 batches brewed and his own yeast strain before this forum even went active.  He is a prolific poster BECAUSE he is a better brewer and has the experience to back it up.  Let's just be thankful that he has the time and is willing to share it with the rest of us!

Post by: theDarkSide on September 27, 2010, 05:35:15 AM
It actually doesn't take long to distinguish the "post whores" from the people who know what their taking about.  There's a guy on another forum who could probably figure out how to build a spaceship, fly to the moon, and brew in a zero oxygen atmosphere, but has pretty low post count.

Post counts are fun, but don't try to take them too seriously ( well except in Denny's case :) )

Best way is to just spend time onboard and check out the different poster's levels...
Start with Denny and work your way down....I suppose you could pm Drew and get em...

That would be totally funny to have a moving bar, based on Denny's numbers.
So like Denny - 2500 = 1st kit, Denny - 2000 = noob braumeister .....

Eventually it would take 10K posts to get out of 1st kit ranking. And that's ok because it's all a joke anyway, this would just make it a bigger one. Actually maybe everyone would chill out about their "rank"  if we went to this model.

 The late, great, by god, Paul "Bear" Bryant said: "If winning's not important, then why are they keeping score?"

Beerocd thinks Tubercle's problem is Tubercle is not argumentative enough.

Tasts great.. less filling
You got peanut butter on my chocolate...

All great examples of arguments that can't be won, and can go on forever. Rocketing you into Denny territory.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think most of the high count posters have jobs. Either they have understanding management or they're just very sneaky. In either case, I'm glad they aren't my employees.  ::)

The way I see it if you are under 500 posts you are not a good brewer at all. Not only that you are not even a human being. More closer to the apes. Philistine so to speak. Unclean.

I think I speak for everyone except for major when I say, get your post count up or get out.


Maybe it would make the bottom feeders feel a little better if they changed the top titles to Postmaster. Then denny could be the Postmaster General.

Once you get your posts up, keep them up.

I forget...does my post count mean I don't have a job or I'm just sneaky?  It's so confusing.

The best way to get a promotion is to join in this insipid thread. So I did too just to use the word insipid.

 I have almost as many posts as beerocd and he was unemployed for like three years. Workin 12 hours a day nowhere near a computer and I could still get off 6 or 8 posts in a 20 min. session.

Now THAT means I need a life. Or more money.

I don't think anyone is forcing you to sit in front of your computer and converse with us. The AHA forum and homebrewing, or culinary arts in your case, is a way of life and here we sit and type...

This is my life.  ;)

It's like a virtual bar, we sit around drinking our own swill, discussing, joking, making fun of things.
So it's sorta social, demented and sad, but social. Right?

You can't set the record because there are people who sign up and never post.
Additionally, if we saw you trying to do something like that, there would be a flurry of posts directed at you that you would have to answer - thus blowing your plan out of the water.

Absolutely - we live for this s***! We take it totally seriously, it's a career choice - and we shun those who think otherwise. Actually, I wasn't even unemployed - I took a leave of absence just so I could up my post count and be the first guy with 6 stars.
