Thread Starter 
Does anyone know who has the single day posting record(# of posts)? WTFH, Bonni, Wbroun, SSH? somebody else - or this new kid?....he's got 30 today I think.....sweet???? Do we keep such records? Do we care, should I start a poll...whatayathinkaboutit?

I say ignore engaged.

Got your back buddy, I don't usually post on threads like this. However, the new one PMed me when I called his poll flawed. Every poll is flawed, and even a newbie should know it. (no malice intended)

Man we need some winter weather here Paul. August is brutal here.

I don't think we've ever monitored it, but I may hold the record from the days of the Barking Leprechauns.

Fox has the most posts for the amount of time he has been a member. That would probably give him the biggest daily average. But, I don't know about the most in one single day. Either fox or Bonnie. Gonzo posts alot some days when he's on a role.

I have the average 3.85 post per day since October 18, 2004. That´s probably quite a lot.
Am I proud of it?
Not exactly.
I would prefer fewer absolutely but more those revealing/containing insight and serious knowledge.
Sometimes even a short answer with some simple info is important for the inquirer. Otoh, a lot of posts including mine are almost nothing in value. This is one of them.:
Sure, all posts keep the forum alive and working. Too many scientific papers would kill it.

Just my .02. I have absolutely nothing against any posts not breaking the laws and rules of the forum.

skier_j,
If you two would stop having domestics on here, the post count would be way down!
post #8 of 37
I have been on since near the beginning, last year I started with about 600 and I am at 2700 or so now. Last year was a great bunch of folks here and looks like it will continue this year. So 2100 posts w/in the year is a lot..for me. plus with the other forums I am on. I am not a post glut like some, but I do post more than most .

*I could easily have spread that into 3 posts .

No no!

That would be more like:

"He said"
She said"

followed by a

"Yes Dear!":

Another question. Why wasn't the Barking Leprechauns thread move to the premium articles section?

I think for the same reason it had to be closed - it was just getting too big!

I believe this would be so. Those green howler days were pretty much The Zorro Show. we were just a voluntarily captive audience looking for another punchline to send us into convulsions of laughter... or was it empathetic embarrassment?

Gracias.
post #15 of 37
Several years ago, there was a thread called the "Barking Leprechauns" it was basically where a lot of people claimed to be Irish, even though only one of us was. It included limericks, jokes, etc, and ran to 50+ pages, I think.

ADMINISTRATORS, please resurrect the Barking Leprechauns, I'd love to read it!

WTFH, gracias! And I'd like you to know that I look forward to anything you post.

This is one of the funniest things I read on this site to date.

Shouldn't spell checker pick that up... or have I been mis-spelling that all my life? Eh, ignorance is bliss. I bet most would kill for such luck while fishing... I think I'll go make dinner now.

durn near 15

I think a lot of questions about skistarr90s posts can be answered by looking at his public profile, I think what we have here is a very earnest young man.

AH, yes...that explains it...I have been away from the 'tude since June and lost touch with it...I will be going back to it next week. AH, High School, you know when everything and nothing. That wonderful 13-16 year old range is so...well, they know it all!

post #25 of 37
Wow, just a baby. I didn't realize that... I was your age when I came here. I was however much less... outspoken. I would READ, instead of TALK. But, what do i know, I still consider myself a foolish adolescent anyways.

Whoa! I am not the only one that made comments to you. In fact, I am responding to someone else's comments. Please!
post #27 of 37
Ok to clear this up I would like to stop bickering with ALL of you so lets just end it.

Thank You.

Skistarr90, try to understand. No one is really trying to put you down or bicker. Nearly everyone here is 2 to 4 times your age. We just see things differently and have a different sense of humor. For us, drinking is legal etc. You have engaged a group of people that are not your peers, but who are capable of taking a genuine interest in your conversation. Just give us some slack and understand that even though we used the word "cool" first, we aren't necessarily so in your eyes. That was a complicated way of saying WE'RE OLD DUDE! Things are different from our viewpoint. If you want to really get picked on, give Teton Gravity Forums a try. But remember, the maggots will eat you alive. You have been warned.
post #29 of 37
I sort of want to do that, but that would not be right so I wont. Do you like that forum?
post #30 of 37
I wish I'd have had a bunch of old farts like you(us) all to talk skiing with when I was 15.

Now I'm 45 going on 16 and I do...so it all works out. I figure SkiStarr90 is already halfway cool because he doesn't slide on a cafeteria tray. If he skis with his pants pulled up and I don't have to see his "Tanner" showing above the back of his ski pants...then he's all the way cool and he can be my new friend.
