BS: Who posts the most?

Subject: Who posts the most?
From: alanww

The other day I was looking through the log of the postings of a friend of mine in order to find a thread that I couldn't by using the seach mechanism. I was impressed to see that she (no name so no potential embarassment) contributed no less than 3,269 postings since she became a Mudcatter in April 2000. Wow! That's 38 per week or 5.3 per day! (Personally, I have only managed 172 since Sept 2000 - or 11 per week.) 38 per week seem quite a lot to me but I'm sure its not the record!
So who is the biggest post-a-holic?! And what is there record number? (And, by the way, is there a post-a-holics anonymous?)

Kind friends and companions come join me in rhyme ...

It's quality that counts, not quantity.

People like Malcolm Douglas, Stewie, Masato and others might not have the sheer volume of some others, but take a look at what they post. Almost every post is helpful, considered and informative. These will still be of value in 50 years time when all the froth has (hopefully) blown away.

I clicked on Dick Greenhaus accidentally. The counter says he has 2,549 posts. Most are brief, but packed with information.

This will be number 975 since the 28th of February 2000. Nowhere near the most posts or the most frequent, but nonetheless my participation here has earned me some new friends and acquaintances I would never have hoped to find otherwise (and I've met a few in person), and I have learned a great deal about numerous things, and have shared some of my own meagre (British spelling maybe? Looks okay to me.) wisdom and knowledge.

I don't often have the time or stamina to write huge posts like some of the citizens of Mudcatville, but I like to chime in where I can. I can't stay online for long periods either, so it's all rather hit and miss, but several short periods per day are likely, sometimes with several days off between by the look of my record of postings. I've noticed that by the time I recognize someone here they are no longer new members.

I avoid flames, frequent instrument, hymn, Canadian, art, and a variety of other threads, and generally try to have an educational time here.

Peace, Mooh.

I agree with Snuffy completely. The posts of Stewie and many others are so damned great that they boggle the mind. Stewie simply amazes me as does the Snuff himself and Malcolm, Masato, Dick G, etc. It's not the quantity that counts.

On the other hand, I'm not going to excuse myself to death for posting a lot of drivel either.....Sure, there's plenty of that because I read damn near everything too, but I also have a lot of posts regarding music, lyrics searches, song histories, and other subjects so hopefully the blind hog does find the......well you get the idea.

I'm at 9563 posts since Sept 17, 98 - about 8.25 per day on the average - but a lot of those are "Thanks Malcolm" or Snuffy, or Ivan, or ... and a lot more are "Do you have a tune for that?"

Gosh - I haven't broken 1,000 yet - 795 since December 13, 1996, threadID=285

For some fun and Mudcat history, browse through the antique threads like this one: http://www.mudcat.org/thread.CFM?threadID=4

Just change the threadID=number to 7 or 36 or 217 to get an idea about what we dinosaurs were talking about in the Dark Ages - and how much things have and haven't changed!

Some people just spend WAY too much time on line, though, Spaw...

I do have to say that I have learned a lot in 11 months. HTML, internal HTML, and thanks to Gargoyles' first nasty post to me, that I can actually TYPE lyrics in. I originally thought I needed a scanner. I have since learned to use search engines, and copy and paste. Thanks, Greg! I know there is a LOT more to learn.....I'm working on it.

That shows what a cool invention the 'Cat really is.

Interestingly, Max has only posted 1240 times since Oct 1996, mostly info on the weekly radio schedule. His restraint and modesty put some of us (and I know who I mean!)to shame.

Almost everything I post is a question.

"How do you play this or that"?

CAN you play this or that without being a frigging genius?

How many people think this about that?

You know, I've ALWAYS gotten good answers. That's Mudcat.

Benjamin, from looking at three or four specific "Mudcat" threads over the last week, I'd say the inner circle comprises about a hundred and seventy five people! You'd have to shoot Pete Seeger to NOT be in it!
