    Default suggestion: postcount donation

    yeah, you read that right. postcount + donation. mandatory donations, actually, so more like a postcount tax.

    let's face it, some people here just have way too many, and some do not, and that's a problem. this is why the well-endowed should be required to make regular donations to the impoverished. most importantly, to me. try not to think of it like communism.

    anyone?

    yeah, ok, new idea... post count open market. users would be able to trade post count for various items of interest. this idea is genius.

    i have a stack of napkins, two AA batteries which may or may not be used, a squished pack of gum. also, a wide assortment of office supplies. 252 posts gets the whole lot, nobody can pass up that kind of deal.

    How about no? Post counts are already meaningless with these silly count inflating threads. We might as well ditch the post counter all together at this point.

    Aww, look at the cynical ISTJ.

    I have a used water bottle I'd be willing to trade. Haha, it's full of cold germs and there are a few bits of food in the water.

    It took me since July of last year to accumulate this number of posts, and whatever's done it in far less time. That proves it isn't that hard to increase post count if you put time and effort into it.

    I'm sorry, but I think post count should be earned by participation. I don't think you should get something for nothing, okay?
