Default Posts aren't the only thing that matter....

I have noticed lately a lot of people saying,
"whoa, you have rainbows?"
or,
"omg, how did you get so many posts?"
{not to me, just something i've noticed}
i just wanted to say, this annoys some people.
they dont care how many posts they have,
and they would prefer you not to make a big deal out of their spinnies/rainbows/etc.
just remember,
its the person that matters,
not their number of posts.


UPDATE: I have received some information from a very reliable source.

Thumbs down Re: Posts aren't the only thing that matter....

I thought having a lot of posts and reps was something to be proud of. I disagree. They might think that you are a role model, in fact that is something to be proud of. Also, they see your good behavior on the forum, which earned you all those posts and rep bars, and the rank. After somebody says that you don't say, "Oh, well don't congratulate me, that is just annoying!"
Its great too have a lot of posts, your right, they aren't the only thing that matters, but don't make it a burden. Be proud you have that many posts. Be proud that you are a role model to members.

I agree 100%. I've seen this. "You got over ____ posts and I joined _ before you!"

i respect your opinion badena.

but i especially notice it with one of my friends.
she has like 50,000 posts,
and the 1st thing anyone says to her is something along the lines of,
"whoa, you got lots of posts."
it just kinda annoys her.
and i agree.

Default Re: Posts aren't the only thing that matter....

It never matters to me how many posts a person has. I have seen people here with as FEW as 1 or 2 posts and they have impacted me GREATLY.
For example: Pathetictastic was here a scant 6 posts when he posted his MARVELOOUS Purple Monster that he ALONE created and made a pattern for. SIX posts and I was thrilled to be his friend
I think Nonna72 had been here a total of ten posts before she started welcoming outsiders and I think she is the most warm and welcoming Webkinz we have
I like to go to people's profiles when they are fresh and new and sometimes leave a friendly message, telling them when they reach the webkinz Status to please add me as their friend.
Posts DO NOT matter to me at ALL.
EVERYONE on is here to contribute something to the Melting Pot.
We have had at least two people in the recipe section who came in with their FIRST post being a solved recipe. Where would we be if those people were ignored?

I understand. I don't know why she would feel that way, I wouldn't brag about my posts, but if somebody said, "WOW! Look all those posts!" You would still want to be kind, so a small, "Thank you." would work. Do you see what I mean?

badena-
i agree about thanking them,
but i also think it would be fine to tell them politely you dont really like being complimented on it.

I agree, I get sometimes annoyed by it. A friendly 'congrats' aren't much annoying though for me. I actually feel bad because if the member who posted the "Woah you have a lot of ______" had less than me and I don't know how I could reply. I think I agree about what you just said. Thanks for the reminder!

I really agree! I have some people on my friends list that have under 10 posts, but are some of the helpful people I have ever met: they try to welcome new members, though they are extremely new themselves, and always give out great greetings on profiles. I wish I could be as sweet as they! ( That is the grammar, evn though it sounds extremely weird)

I have been guitly of yearning for posts, but I now am beginning to realize how little they add to our value. A person could have 100,000 posts that are all fluff and could have never been kind to a person, or could be a Lil' kinz that makes the most of his or her mere amount of posts, and always longs to help someone. In conclusion, posts don't matter at all!

Posts, rep, trades, status, none of these add to your value, everyone here on WI, from the most seasoned to the newest members contribute to making WI a fantastic place! Fabulous thread!
