Does anyone know the correlation between points and rep power? I've not been able to figure that out. I have figured out that 1 point does not equal a rep power of 1.

In the upper-right hand corner of each post is a little scale. If you click it a little window pops up and someone can give a vote if you did a good thing or a bad thing.

No, becauseit denotes helpful content in post as opposed to posts that are devoid of content or inaccurate info. This is what we should be after. Not just posts to be able to say you posted something.

I guess I will play devil's advocate.

I don't know who has their panties in a bunch of the number of posts, but I think that removing them is silly. What is the harm in knowing how many times someone has posted here? I find it quite useful especially in greeting the new people here who post their first couple of times in forums other than "Roll Call".

And like it or not, it is helpful to see advice from someone who has a few posts under their belt. Quite often, the number of posts and their level of "expertise" do go hand in hand. And for those with experience who are just starting out on the forum, their willingness to share their knowledge, will shine through no matter how many posts they have. I haven't been able to find someone with limited knowledge on a subject, actually giving advice. No one wants to look "dumb" on this site and post advice that they aren't sure of.

Now, that isn't to say that there aren't people here with egos that are a little bigger than others. After this post, you will probably think that I am one of those now! (that is fine by me by the way) I have a personal stack of those on this board that I consider to big for their britches. I listen to their advice, but have had a problem with how they treated others. I think that their online personality exposes them regardless of the number of posts they have.

My vote is to bring them back. I agree that no one should take stock entirely on post numbers, but to get rid of them over a couple of hurt egos seems misguided at best.

Flame away!!! I'm ready!

I think everyone has something to contribute, regardless of the number of posts they have. As with any forum there are different personallities involved, and in some cases we respond to posts when they differ from what we think or feel it's directed at us. This in turn causes the "flaming" and once that starts you can't take it back. So, it may be best not to respond and let it die on the vine, or respond but in a genersl form.
This type of thing is not specific to forums, it occurs in e-mails as well, that's why before you hit send, file it and read it later.icon_idea.gif Because once you send/post, you can't take it back.PDT_Armataz_01_29.gif

I think I am going to remain neutral on this one. I many respects I agree with Jeff. In other ways I agree with AJthepoolman.

As far as me I never paid much attention to how many posts I made I only looked at the number of posts someone had & the rep to know how long someone had been giving good advice.

I was on 2401 & had to look up how many posts I had only to go back to the thread to see it spiral out of control.

Thru the whole thing I have learned what the little scale is for. no one ever told me I could vote until I saw the posts relating to the mess. I only wish I would have known some have given me some excelent advice & now AI know I can give them a point for it. On the other hand when I saw the thread spiral out of control I could have given them a negative point.

Thanks Jeff for being Proactive it is fine with me to leave the # of posts off cause I can go to the personal profiles to get that info if I want to know if I can trust the advicePDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Sorry Tim, we have been sooooo busy. This summer so far has just flown bye. As a matter of fact just got back from NY Tuesday from visiting with our daughter, son in-law and grandbaby for the holiday wekend.....happy to report she's growing like a weedtongue.gif.
Your new pit is a beauty!!! Sounds like ya'll had a wunnerfull weekend breaking her in...good food and good friends,..... doesn't get much better then that!!! Maybe one of these days we'll get to make it out your way and say howdy, needless to say you and the Mrs are allways welcome if you ever make it to our part of the woodsPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Grandaddy and Mia enjoying some pool time last weekend....

icon_mrgreen.gif Thanks Phil. Have our second to last comp in a week and hopefully things should slow down quite a bit after that. Our SMF family has grown in leaps and bounds and I look foward to chatting and getting to know you all!!!

Getting there...Thanks Mikesmile.gif ....Lessons learned: 1) Not a good idea to do a 3-4 day cook in 115* degrees. Never Ever try to pick up the trailer tounge of a 2000lb smokerPDT_Armataz_01_23.gif .....it will throw your back out big time icon_rolleyes.gif But that's a story for another dayicon_wink.gif

Well now that I have totally hijacked this thread, let me say this: Post counts... smoke counts...I have learned things from folks with thousands of them as well as folks with just a few, and everywhere between...if it sounds like good advice I'll try it. It's not a contest....were all here to learn and share our experiences...success's and failure's alike. Nuff said!!!
