God. You morons!

I'm not so sure if you're chastising me or not. :P

Pffft. Your amounts aren't anything. The ratio for comments to forum posts is like, 5:1 now. 5 comments for every post made. It obviously relates to the forum's activity, whether it caused it to go down or the inactivity caused it to happen. Maybe people just thought, "hey, I can get twice as much AP from commenting than posting!"

The important thing here is the volume of comments, not the ratio. The top three current users by AP - FT, Ernie and Google567 - have at least 16,000 comments each..at least 32,000 AP from comments alone. Not a small amount. Three years ago the top users barely had 10,000. Even then, the ratios have always been that way. This reflects how people use their profile comments to communicate, the usage of which isn't that dependent on forum activity although a correlation exists between them.

My point is, Roger said that the top 10 got to where they were because of the quality forum posts they've made. Not to insult the current crop of users, but I burst into laughter when I saw that. Going back to the past, I've seen people jack their AP counts up without making a meaningful contribution to the forums.

tl;dr -- plenty of AP /=/ respect

P.S. People have always known that comments were a lucrative source of AP

Oh, and Skele and daleks are judges.

I am a part time judge dude. And pretty much only because I suck at coming up with good topics and at times I am busy as hell. But hey man, you are a judge too.

Of course, daleks, Skele, knight, the mods, killersup, Ernie and a hundred other people don't really have a place to call "home."

I would say the Tavern is where I post the most. I only really post in the Tavern, DayCee's threads in Popular Media, and the ASC thread.

Anyway, on topic. I judge all people the same. People who are serfs I treat the same as the Top 10 people. If you don't bug me I will not get mad at you and treat you with the respect you deserve.

Well, you could categorize almost everyone into separate categories if you wanted to. The site doesn't have any "Renaissance Men" that are truly and perfectly rounded in everything. Everyone has their unique talents.

Our posting habits don't necessarily reflect our skills, just how we prefer to post.

I've always been a Tavern person, by the way.

By the way Salvidian, I appreciate your list. The empty spaces where people I remember once belonged make me feel a bit sad.

You forgot this guy with 8000 posts.

The Tavern is my home. Everywhere else is a rendezvous point.

When I started to participate in the forums. I mostly posted in the video games section and flash games section. And also the Sonny forum as well. But then, I began to branch out and posted in the tavern and forum games.

Just replying to those who replied me. I've no more opinions about this thread. For now.

Ah Roger, you miss spelled pupolar twice. You replaced it with "popular". Da fauq man?

Ma bad. Pupolar people should really be addressed to as such.

The best line ever said,ever.*sniff sniff* that was beautiful, Killersup almost cried in his ghostly essence.

Hm. Thanks if that was for real.

Let's look at the people who are in the top 10 right now: FT, Ernie, Google57, Roadripper, plokkey, MrDayCee, Carlie, tennisman24, yours truly, and Xcalibur45. As I recall, all of us have at least a fair amount of posts, but the most important source of AP is the crapload of comments we've all made. Tru fax.

You're rather right. But I bet even your comments had some sort of quality.

Plus, when it comes to merits, it's probable that many of these people have buckets of them. Something very unusual to the general AG user.

This thread IS bias.

Eeyup.

And...

My point is, Roger said that the top 10 got to where they were because of the quality forum posts they've made. Not to insult the current crop of users, but I burst into laughter when I saw that. Going back to the past, I've seen people jack their AP counts up without making a meaningful contribution to the forums.

Hm... eh... yep. I've made an unnecessary and wrong generalization. My bad. But there are some on the top-most ranks who have done so.

And I think that the quality of the posts used to lead to more posts. If I see a crappy post, it's not probable that I'll want to start a discussion with this user. Or even wanting to talk to it more. It has happened before with me: I've saw a well-written post and went to the user's profile to comment on it. A convo was trigged and more AP was earned.

tl;dr -- plenty of AP /=/ respect

For sure. But with lot of AP, it comes the highlights of being in the top 10 and getting like a crowd of fans. How many comments FT gets a month from new users who see him at the very top?

Closing arguments: I felt like quoting this:

The Tavern is my home. Everywhere else is a rendezvous point.

Agree'd.

MrDayCee, Mino, and some solemn posters live in Popular Media.

... did somebody just vote for me? Did they, really? Holy crap, holy crap! Ok Im done with the crap rant now.

The Tavern is my home. Everywhere else is a rendezvous point.

I have made the Tavern my home to, I feel most comfortable here. Subjects that interest me have always been in the Tavern. Nice and comfy cozy.

I chuckled.

Makes sense enough. When I'm not engaging in grand enlightenment on the VG forums, this place always has a few heartwarming threads to ease my mind.

good to see Chillz is flaunting his privates here as well

Darling, it's not like I regionalize.

For me...I like to try my best to stay active in most of the forums. Ernie put it best though, Tavern is definitely home.
