Oh yeah, and I just joined in April and am already on page 2 of the list. Talk about verbal diarrhea...
Thanks, Simon, but there was another step that Jim(Papajam) told me about...maybe by going into the UCP and clicking on something there, it will give you a series of numbers, one of which is the "ranking" of the poster.(Sorry for the run-on sentence.) This eliminates any counting or anything.smestas said:Go to the members list and then click on the Posts link/text at the top of the "Posts" column. Once it has sorted them you can change the listing asending or desending by clicking on the smalll pinwheel icon that shows up next to the "Posts" link.
Wish I could say that great minds think alike as far as posting at the same time but I know better!papajam said:The 'ranking', in this case spider76, is the order in which each person registered on the BB. So you were the 1193rd person to register.
Posted at the same time, Ron!!
I know that feeling and try to be very careful about the wording of what I post; as many of you have noticed, I fail occassionally and tend to stir turmoil among some contingencies on various topics. Rather than stirring turmoil, maybe I should go back to "lurking" since it's allowed here and frowned upon on other boards/digests by many.I feel like a little duck flying over a pond at the hunting range...waiting to be shot down
Oh, but you're bright, have entertaining wit and a charming writing style which gives the board diversity and flavor. You sell yourself short on knowledge and what you have to offer.Alex Csank said:As for me, I find it incredulous to note that I am creeping up on these wonderful guys. I have neither the technical knowledge, nor the experience, nor the connections that each of these three AlfaBB leaders have. In fact, I feel pretty embarrassed about being in 4th place in terms of numbers of posts.
Thanks, and I am truly honored; but as in Alex's case, this is incredulous to me to be nominated. I've only been on the board a short while, will never accumulate the number of posts as the aforementioned group; I certainly do not have the technical knowledge or expertise to offer as they do or the Pat Braden's, Joe Benson's, Jim Weber's, Don Black's, Paul Tenney's, Stu Schaller's, Tom Sahines's, Brian Shorey's, or Fred DiMatteo's etc. (I apologize in advance for all those I left off this list or I could write a rather lengthy bibliography -- isn't that what I do best, anyway?)dretceterini said:It has to go to Cheryl Braden, for putting up with Pat and his ever increasing backyard full of cars for 20+ years...
Huh? I can think of 3 ways to see the number of posts a member made (an dthey all work for me):I see the ability to list member's post counts has disappeared.. is this to discourage verbal diarrhoea?
I don't remember the exact page numbers now, but I was amazed at the 100 pages of "0" posts, followed by another 100 or so pages of single digit posts. I didn't pay any attention to how long the subscriber had been a member, however. With my minimal number of posts I expected to be down in the lower 100 pages very easily.What I find impressive is the long time members with few posts along with the members that have many post by helping others. We all know the members that make this place what it is.......the ones that are always surfing for someone to help in their time of need.

Not that it matters, but it looks like I am up to #5, but 1800 posts behind Papajam in 1st...
From my perspective, it's all about the sharing of experience and knowledge. Having been on this Board for a number of years, I am delighted to have seen, and continue to see, many posters start answering questions, not ask them. So, other than wanting to be helpful, there's nothing more gratifying to me than to know that I've perhaps played a part in the transformation of a BBer from 'student' to teacher.Zunige said:...and it is a joy to see how helpful they are.
