I go for quality, not quantity.

i'd rather keep the current site speed than the overkill of flames and other retarded posts. :)

No idea how many I lost, oh well, no big deal, not like I'm one of the biggest posters, but I've been here longer than most of you!! (well had to brag about something since my post count is so low :p )

EDIT: I lost about 150 posts... just realized I'm nowhere near my 1337 post now... :cry:

I'm not complaining about the post count loss (I'm relatively new to the forums) but isn't there a way to purge records without dropping the post count?

Also what is the reason for the negative post counts?

(Sorry if these have been asked before)

That's not so bad. Somebody has less than -200. :laugh:

There are over 500 members that have under 0 posts.

I agree, get rid of them, and those pips you get... that'll save more space and cut down on pointless posts... :rolleyes:

pointless posts... where is the line drawn on that? to you it may be someone who only posts with a "cool :)" .. to me, i might think your post was pointless... to someone else, they might think all posts are pointless unless you post at least a paragraph of text.

posts are posts.... everyone is contributing and good for us all.

Useful replies are:

? Replies that show a persons opinion (e.g. Gooey)

? Replies that help someone in one way or another (suggestions count)

Useless replies are:

? One/two worders such as "cool" or "lol"

? Saying one persons opinion is wrong. No opinion is wrong. It's an OPINION!

Oh... give me a break. :rolleyes: You don't think that people will want to get the most stars either. It will just be the same. Besides there hasn't really been that much post spam here lately... even with the post counts lowered a little.

Keep them... it shows (for the most part) how much experince you have around Neowin.

:no: I have to say I disagree, if anything the date you joined says how much experience you have, not the amount of posts or stars (aka pips) that someone has. I think it's a shame that some people with high post counts seem to think post counts actually matter. However my original point was really that we don't need them if that'll help keep the DB lean 'n' fast, if it doesn't help that much then I'm happy for them to stay if other people find them useful.
