Awesome!!! Another algorithm that provides 'weight' in order to deliver a more enlightened exprience in life. 

You can wrap me in your flag, make me say a praise to your creator and make me spend your currency, but remember this, I am a loyal servant to Justice and a Patriot to none. I am free...

Re: SmorgasBoard Posts No Longer Included in Post Counts

I was just going to ask why some posters have such a high post count and I never see them posting in the major boards.

Click on the username, view all posts.  Generally can get a sense of where they post; or in my case, the bulk of my posts were made a while back - while my post count isn't anywhere close to the big users, it looks awfully inflated if going by recent history.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 683, EQ 8 690, TU 710, EX 715 (01/01/15)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/16)

Personally, I'd rather have a well thought out SmorgasBoard post counting in post counts than 10001 "Congrats! Thanks for sharing" posts elsewhere. Not directed at anyone but I think quality is much more important than quantity.

And who decided what's 'quality'?

 

Every congrats posts means something to the person being congratulated.

I try. :smileyhappy:

Quality is subjective. I suggest a poll on what a quality post actually is to dispell any notions on what is and isn't... "A quality post."

If posts matter so much to a person I guestion The motive for being on the forum to start with. If I had my choice they wouldn't keep track of any of them. After all this time I can't even buy a cup of coffee with mine. If my Congrats bother people tough. I will continue to congratulate people on their success. It's huge to them and I will continue if you don't like it don't read the approvals. If people spent more time paying it forward in life the world would be a better place in my opinion.

Apparently, someone did decide posts to SmorgasBoard aren't because they aren't counted.

 

And although I've never posted a CC approval here, personally I'd rather have one congratulatory post from a user telling me their experience with the card/issuer(or what they've heard is the strong points of the card than a couple dozen generic messages from users who may/may not have read my post. Just sayin'
