an alter ego or wealth of knowledge?

A wealth of ego.

Can someone please explain how some ppruners have such absolutely huge posting counts? Were multiple posts in JetBlast once counted in the total?

Jet blast posts don't count "due to willy waving" (and i quote this from an reply to an early days pm request for the same information from a mod! :ok: )

so, the answer to you question could possibly be nothing less than an 'whole lot of hot air' outside of Jet Blast? :confused:

But please also bear in mind that PPRuNe has been around for a number of years now...

JB not counting does betray the location of most of your posts Radar, I mean 84, from a "seasoned campaigner" like yourself?? :p

A combination of the ability to spout a wealth of knowledge and bullshit in equal measure (says he approaching the magic, must have 2000 post mark. :8).

The ubiquitous, cantankerous and obstinate posters are usually the high flyers with regards to post counts - with the exception obviously.

Re posting count...
Partly due to one of my minor 'beefs' about PPRuNe, actually.
The only way to subscribe to a topic in PPRuNe is to post in it, unlike other forums, where there are links to click, to subscribe without posting.

....all this presupposes that the number of posts is some kind of measure of worth. B*gger the total, it's the content of what is actually posted that matters.

(and yes, by that measure, my worth is probably equal to the number of my 'recognised' posts...insignificant)

You lot are bleeding lucky.

In the good old days you'd all be down to zero for even daring to have the audacity to use the words "p**t c***t".

Damned young whippersnappers.

FSL Drapes - sort the young blaggards out sirrah!

When the decision was made a few years ago to discount JB posts in the total, everyone's total went down overnight so even historic JB posts didn't count.

Certainly celebrating post count milestones was an invitation to have it reduced to zero; some having 3,712 knocked orf their total!! :E

We also had a period when the post count was not shown at all.

But basically it means nothing except that some people have been around for a long time and didn't have a television!!

They most certainly did - just for appearing on a thread about Aunty Mary's lottery winnings or summat... :oh:

Sadly I had television and still had a bunch of post counts that were sent into cyberspace. :(

Being semi-retired has its problems. :{
