I'm sure everyone will be reset to zero with TMP 4.0.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP says:

I mean "# of posts" but I doubt that will show up in the title.

Some years ago, Dear Editor Bill started putting stats in your profile, and maintained a table if Most Prolific Poster. Back then it may have been accurate.

To our mutual surprise grin the OFM was far in the lead, by thousands. It seemed like a nice dumb milestone to celebrate, so every time I passed a 10,000 mark, I would post Ozymandias. I was looking forward to celebrating 60,000 posts when massive Bug strikes rendered the count totally un reliable. My count varied from 113 to 56,000. Daily.

When and if ever TMP 4.0 emerges, what are the odds we will have an accurate count? Then, why bother with it at all? It was nothing but silly fun back when it was sort of accurate. But it's not now and never will be. Maybe eliminating it might even free some Bug Zapping electrons.
