    I just took a look at my number of posts and I realize I have only 59 what's even weirder is that it says I have 71 in the last 90 days. Now I have been here from November 2005, and I have only 59 posts which is correct but in the last 90 days I have posted 71 times. Which I understand they don't count member discussions, but from the statistical data it's where I spend all my time. The reason I am talking about this is I knew when new people come to this site, they always have like 100 posts in two weeks. And I am shocked that people have posts in the thousands. Mind you sometimes I have taken a-month break a couple of times(twice) but it's so I remain fresh you know. So I keep real with the kids and I keeps it reals on the streets. It was until a while ago did I start looking at other subjects other than the teen and member discussions area, and quite frankly I don't know how all of you do it. Some of you have a remarkable number of posts and most likely, the way I am going by the time I will have spent one year here, I will most likely not have one hundred posts. I have a P.R.A.(Post Rate Average) of like .25 and I wonder if I have the lowest of all active members, not meaning the people who come on here and ask one question then leave for eternity, but the people that come and post where ever that might be. In which case I will be proud that I have a .25 PRA, but it would be a catch 22 if I wanted to post because it would ruin my .25 PRA, anyway it's late and I am rambling. So peace.

    Posts in certain ares don't count towards your total post count, but they do appear in the last 90 day count.
    Areas that don't count include Member Discussions and Introductions.

    But I will say one thing, like I haven't already, I have a lot of those green things for just 59 posts, so maybe I am batting like .400 in which case I would also feel very very proud. Because I would have .25 PRA and .400 green-dot avg(no baseball analogy for that one) in which case I would have a phenomonal rookie season.

    I don't worry whether I've posted once,or 5000 times,as it's the quality of posts that count.I'd sooner post a few excellent replies than simply post "waffle",which all of us do at times. :D Stick around,as your help is always needed.Dont worry about the "greenies",they are there to help newbies.

    I know it's kind of shocking to me that I have close to 1500 posts, but I've been here for almost 2 years and it works out to less than 5 posts a day. Sometimes I post more than that in a day, and other times I am away for a week or more. But those posts certainly add up!

    Same here, except my weeks could turn into months. And it's not like I don't look to post, I just have a few subjects I look at, and if I don't think they need help or if no one's posted, there is nothing for me to post on. And like I said the only reason I brought this up, is becaue I see some people who just start get like a hundred in one week, and I am starting to believe that they are talking to themselve because I don't know where they
