Be the postcount you wish to see in the world, BEAT. Time to get an IV and a bedpan.

Even if they could, it would only last until you posted again.

Obviously they need to change his post count, then lock his account and create a new one.

Iíve king been a proponent of post-redistribution, whether to immediately bring all members up to 2000 posts or to perpetually maintain a gimmick post count for BEAT.

Okay, my commitment to the latter may be new, but no less strong.

I don't think we can change a post count, let alone make it negative.

You're drunk on that bone-nog again BEAT.

Nah, that's just a market-based system with a generous welfare system - Universal Basic Postcount. Communism would have each poster post according to their ability but give each a postcount according to their needs.

2.3 million posts equally distributed across 2300 members is about 1000 posts per person. You want to make everyone on Talking Time a non-person.

Perhaps we could tax a portion of everyone's postcount to put into a post bank, to help inflate the numbers of less prolific members. Just so long as those members agree to monthly postchecks to ensure they're making every effort to post. And they'll need to have their avatar available on their person at all times to check their identity. And they'll be added to a database for further tracking, just to make sure no shenanigans happen. And while we're at it maybe bus them to a special off-site forum for re-education.

The exemplary quality and high frequency of my posts mark me as the greatest Stakhanovite poster of the The Return of Talking Time Forums, and the natural leader for a Shock Posting Battalion whose posts revive stagnant threads and give new vitality to our discourse.

I dont carefully craft and then not submit reply to hundreds of posts to have my post count inflated all willy-nilly like some second rate snorks OC on deviant art.
A Gunther, An Otter Post demands a certain level of QualOtterity, And the Qualotterity is NOT POSTING.

My plan isn't so much to accumulate a huge supply of posts, so much as its to devalue everyone else's posts, like Goldfinger.
