    ouh russian "water" no then I cant do it. If you were american I would have gladly done it. But to deprive a german of beer or a russian of vodka is like pretending to know something about soccer

    And no, that's not what I meant.

    I'll try to make myself a bit clearer.

    In communities everyone has a certain "value" set on them. In our case here, let's say specimen A has 10 000 posts and is an official member for 4 years. Specimen B on the other hand has joined yesterday and has only made a single post.

    Once A posts, his post automatically contains the value of the post itself + the expected value that is based on his previous posts where they displayed A's knowledgeability. The added "value" is by itself dynamic, it does not have a static value assigned to it. It is constantly being "gambled" with a sense, if you make range of stupidity posts one after another, you lower your overall added "value", if you lower it too much, you're not going to be taken seriously anymore.

    On the other hand of the spectrum, B has no added value at all or in some communities, it is already negative. Thus in essence, he doesn't have anything to lose by making a complete fool or a dick of himself. So essentially, he is not "gambling" with his value by posting statements.

    P.S. This place moves bloody fast.
    That was meant as a teasing remark... Never meant to be taken so seriously.

    Essentially different people have different level of ability in contributing in the forum. A person that's insightful might sometimes make a silly post or two. But on average they'll make posts with values more times than not. It's a game of probability. The chance of you making a stupid post is no greater for that first post compared to the nth.

    In fact, you get the opposite effect, the more posts you make, the more likely you'll show your true level. It's much more of a gamble for a new member since the first post is what people make their first impression on. That single post might not be reflective of their abilities.

    Also person with large number of posts will think that he/she is more likely to be right, even in things that have nothing to do with MBTI simply because they have more posts. (there are alway exceptions)


    Do others agree with this observation and what do you think about it?
    I think you should try posting a little more and, you know, actually get some experience before spouting BS like this. Try harder, n00b.












    ^ see? Sounds convincing, no? I agree 100%, but the effect wears off when you reach about 1000 posts. At that point you stop being the person who inspects post count and become the person whose post count is looked at. Most of the cues about status that I take, now, have to do with the person's posting style and networking.
