I have another idea

How about NOT counting posts from Chit-Chat? The number of posts would then reflect the actual contribution, not the post whoring abilities...

hehe, then probably noone would be able to get a custom user title..... or they could just start whoring in the Band forum or something like that. Kinda happens already. I say just leave it the way it is.....

I side with Guitar Demon on this one: it should be reserved for people who make a decent contribution as judged by yourself, Nomad. If a number of posts were to be imposed before getting one though, I would agree with Def and say 5000 is a better figure but everything's fine as it is, I reckon.

haha, like it is now, it's fine

but I'de say 5.000 because to get those kinda postcount, you'de have to be around for a while. And we all know the people who've been around for a while and post regularly, right?

Haha +1. I agree with the people who said it will encourage post whorage, If there was a custom title for people, it should only be people who have contributed well, like Dislexic in the gear talk, or John in the tabs, etc etc..

But your all our bitches

I did some math, I'm sure some of you will love the results. This is so awesome, you have to check it out.

Father Death-
0.49 posts per day.
4418 posts until he hits 5000.
At the current rate, it will take 24 years and 251 days for him to hit 5000.

Me-
0.96 posts per day.
4362 posts left until I reach 5000.
At the current rate, it will take 12 years and 161 days for me to hit 5000.

Dissection-
6.46 posts per day.
1624 posts left until he hits 5000
At the current rate, it will take 252 days for him to hit 5000.

CANNIBALCORPSE-
9.49 posts per day.
2138 posts left until he hits 5000.
At the current rate, it will take 227 days for him to hit 5000.

Transient-
10.71 posts per day.
2278 posts left until he hits 5000.
At the current rate, it will take 213 days for him to hit 5000.

Soulinsane-
11.65 posts per day.
2385 posts left until he hits 5000.
At the current rate, it will take 205 days for him to hit 5000.

BLS-
11.58 posts per day (holy shit!)
Going at the current rate, by the time I reach 5000 posts, BLS will already have 52,620 posts. By the time Father Death reaches 5000 posts, BLS will already have 104,416 posts. Holy fucking shit.

Anyone thinking of coming in to contact with BLS's laptop should wear a Trojan to protect themeselves from viruses contracted by his rampant postwhoring. I made a funny.

EDIT: Forgot to add SoulInsane and CANNIBALCORPSE.

Even with BLS's rampant post whoring, he doesn't project to hit 10,000 before you.

You- 243 days.
BLS- 330 days.

He might do it if you go away for a while or die or something.

Then (gathering by the Metaltabs awards 2004 thread opinions) he might post less offensive posts.

I voted yes.
Maybe the person also has to be a member a certain amount of time. Like a year or something and have X+ amount of posts.
Or just give me a little title and be done with it.

You're right. We would not want that to happen.

Haha, yeah! Fuck custom user titles for postwhores, anybody with more than 5000 posts should have the user title "Rampant Post Whore". Every time somebody whines about user titles, they should be threatened with a title like that to shut them up.

I actually wouldn't mind having a custom user title, but if I did, it would probably say "Haha, Transient" or "No Custom Title For You" or something like that. That would kick so much ass.

Even though I kind of rushed to the post-whore position, I say only respected members of the forum should get a title, or as the guy said people that have done something for metaltabs.com

I was just wondering how other's have gotten custom user titles...and let me just say that I voted yes and don't feel that I am whoring posts and don't intend on starting the habit anytime soon.
