Yes but it must fit in to a set of rules that we may or may not enforce or break on a whim.

Thanks for the Anchorman thread flashback...

So tempted to resume it.

I wonder what the "REAL" post counts would be if we got rid of both "fake setlists" games.

Honestly though, this whole post whoring thing is getting to be a little ridiculous.  What are we playing, King of the Mountain?  The setlist games are just that, games.  I find the GD game to be quite fun.  And what about all the other post padding opportunities that exist here like the "Last Complete Show Listened To" or album, or "Right Now I'm listening to...".  Sure valuable insights can be gleaned, especially from the Album thread imo, but for the most part no real commentary goes along with the posts, mine included.  I fall victim to my own post whoring episodes, especially when the odometer is getting close to rolling over a big number.  But does having a higher post count make a cooler pauger?  Its not all setlist games around here anyway.  To prove it I crunched some numbers of my own.  Starting with the basic statistics at the time of this post:

Total Posts: 83119
Total Members:  1763

Total Posts By top 30 Members:  64758
Percentage of Total Posts By Top 30:  77.9%
Percentage of Membership Owned By top 30: 1.7%

GD Setlist Posts:  1012
PH Setlist Posts:  4291
Total "Post Whoring Setlist Game" posts:  5303
Percentage of  "Post Whoring Setlist Game" posts to total: 6.3

The Newb Factor:
I'm drawing a wide generalization here, but I assume that most newbs that never repost do so in the ISO forum.

ISO Forum Posts:  2535
ISO Forum Post Percentage of Total:  3%

Conclusion:

Total Posts:  83119
Total Newb and Setlist Posts: 7840
Percentage Newb and Setlists Posts:  9.4%
Percentage of Total Posts By Top 30:  77.9%
Percentage of Membership Owned By top 30: 1.7%
 

Of the total posts, 1.7% of the membership is posting something other than fluff posts 68.5% of the time.  Pretty damn good considering that we get by without hurling random insults at each other most of the time.  It seems to me that statistically we can put this whole post whoring issue behind us.
