    A lot of forum readers seem to post nothing more than a little smilie or some other useless comment, why? You do realize that every time a thread is updated than that this system sends out e-mail notifications for those interested in the thread? I would hope that you are trying to do more than just increase the number of your posts.

    Because a picture is worth 1000 words ?

    You can set your notification of subscribed threads to be "through control panel only" and then just check your User CP when you want to update yourself on a thread. I've done that for the 40-odd threads I subscribe to; works much better than instant notifications and keeps my inbox clear.

    One thing we need to remember is that we now need to opt in for the Insider Builds.

    Go to Settings>Advanced Options>Get Insider Builds>Get Started. Then follow the yellow brick road.

    One thing of interest was that I followed the above, but when I checked, I got the infamous "Fix Me" which consisted of the sole choice of Opt Out, so I did. I then went back to Get Started and followed along; this time I'm told I'm ready to get Insider builds.

    YMMV

    I'm not sure I understand. Why would the number of posts make a difference? Do we get a reward or something?

    In some forums people just post to increase their count. On another forum we had one thread set up by a mod to increase our post counts.. he just wanted to mess with another member that got banned and he had a huge post count.

    New badges? I do believe some of them are based on the number of posts you've made. You and I, and I think most members here, don't pay any attention to post count. Some do, and see it as an honor badge or something. Then they spam threads to build it up. I don't think its an issue here. As mentioned, a picture (or smiley) is worth a thousand words. Sometimes all you need is a ditto.
