High Post Average Apr. 17th, 2011 @ 03:45 PM Reply

How is it that some people can have such large amount of posts in such a short time. There's some people who have more than double my posts and have only been on this site a third of the time I have.

I mean, there's something a little obsessive about 5,000 posts in the space of a year or two.

How do you guys find the time to post so much?

It's not that difficult to make that many posts in that span of time.

Not really.

You really only need to post 15~20 times a day. That really only takes an hour or two out of your day.

Two hours a day is a bit obsessive, no? Over the space of a year that's close to a month worth of time spent posting.

They just have to post more posts per day than you, like 10-15, something that can be easily done.

People can post a lot in a short time frame, usually just made up of +1 posts.

Many people spend 2 hours on the computer....It doesn't even have to be 2 hours spent in one sitting, but throughout the day. Making 20 posts throughout the day is not obsessive at all.

I used to post that much, but I've learned to control it a little. Now I'm posting 8 per day or thereabouts, which is about 3,000 posts per year. Still, it's a decent enough average. Mind you, when I patrol the forums and put lock messages on threads, they soon add up.

Still adds up to 2 hours a day spent posting though, whether it's spread out over an afternoon or done in quick succession. I'd understand that people could do that once in a while (I even make up to 20 posts a day on dull days), but EVERY day?

Simple post in every thread made even if you have no clue what to say just post something in it you'll get a huge post count in no time.

I reiterate: It's not that difficult to accomplish this everyday, unless you're a workaholic or something.

I gather you would being a mod and all. But you're almost obligated to post in threads due to locking them.

My personal opinion, but I don't agree with you there. Even when I was very active on this forum I couldn't muster 20+ posts a day. I just struggle to see how people can keep that consitancy up over the space of 3-5 years.

I just can't imagine finding 2 hours of every day to make posts. Maybe once or twice a week, but not daily.

I wasn't always a Mod. 15 months in the job now and I feel more obliged to post in threads that i wouldn't necessarily post in before I was modded. Sure, I might not have opinions on the topic at hand, but I have opinions on people's posting.

I just can't imagine finding 2 hours of every day to make posts. Maybe once or twice a week, but not daily.

I'm hardly here 2 hours a day for posting. I spend more time B/Ping, it's easy to make half a dozen posts in half an hour. Clubs and crews give me space to ramble, as does the Writing section. General is for more mundane stuff and locks.

I'm what you would call an irregular poster- I have periods where I can't even access the internet, but other times I post a lot in a short space of time- my post count average does not adequately reflect my posting habits.

Some of us just really like chatting on forums.

It's not about '+1ing' to get more 'stats'. It's just about going on a site daily that you like and getting involved with the community.

Wow that actually pretty weird. Well for me I had an old account that had been active sense 06, but I was off
New-grounds for a year so I made a new one. Maybe its because I was used to posting so much on my old one it just rubbed of onto this.

I follow my post average: about 4 or 5 posts in one day. Today, though, I've made about 20 posts. To me, it depends on how much homework was assigned. Seeing everyone else, it inspires me to make higher quality posts--many of them--in a single day.


I can't come up with a decent saying, since everyone copyrights everything.

I find it weird how some of them have nearly 20 posts per day. I mean really, what the hell?
