    Do you mean total number of posts, frequency of posts, or are you asking people to name their favorites?

    No-- but I was just wondering
    Posts generally indicate who has been along the longest.

    It is not very obvious ! It depends on the length and quality of the posts. I do not spend very much time writing my posts :shy:

    I spend all my time here. I'm a loser :cry:

    Yes I meant like time spent here

    I will concede my mistake
    I have spent around 70 hrs here in the last week

    I've been here since July 2003, but I don't have that many posts compared to some other people that joined this year.

    Number of posts may not indicate the amount of time spent here. I'm sure that some people read threads but rarely choose to reply.

    Some days I may make five posts - links to news stories - in five minutes. I clearly spend a lot of time at PF, but my post count is very unrespresentive of time spent as compared to the average poster, I would think.

    When talking about post counts one needs to realise that PF has gone through a couple of major upgrades since its inception. Earlier post counts did not carry over from previous versions, so with each upgrade everyone started over with a zero post count.

    ouch that would suck, anyway anyone take to the idea of having something that can show the posts of all the users?

    The top 15

    Code (Text):

    russ_waters     5,098
    marcus          4,134
    chroot          4,010
    Ivan Seeking    3,839
    Zero            3,818
    selfAdjoint     3,658
    Mentat          3,406
    Hurkyl          2,875
    HallsofIvy      2,770
    Nereid          2,637
    Monique         2,424
    FZ+             2,336
    matt grime      2,231
    Iacchus32       2,148
    Tom Mattson     2,108
     
    Of those, only Nereid (9-19-03), Ivan Seeking(4-30-03), and matt grime(1-13-04) weren't here for the changeover to PF3.0 which occured ca. 3-16-03.

    Now, don't ask me how I did that (its a secret).

    I think the all time highest poster, taking the old versions into account would be Zero. He had several thousand posts from PF2.0. If he still posted here, he'd probably be the top poster still.

    We also had several others in the multi-K club from 2.0. Ssivakami is one who comes to mind, although she doesn't spend much time here anymore.

    While Mentat was posting heavily, he even led Zero. Unfortunately, Mentat and Gale17...oh, never mind.

    So what happened to Zero then. Maybe the same thing happened to him as it did to Tribdog :eek:
