    Subscriptions count vs Post count (RoFL warning)

    Wanna' bitta' fun?

    This will be my 400th post. I just asked HeX to "watch a thread" for me, and it said I had 200 subscriptions. (I just posted elsewhere, so I'm now 201.)

    So my "threads to posts ratio" is (exactly) 1:2, suggesting that on average, I've made 2 posts per thread subscribed.

    The question is: who has the lowest thread to post rating?
    [Min post count is 10 - see JK Ferret, below.]

    So you thought you were cool by getting your "post count" up (something I've recently been rightly accused of) by posting on Feisty, didn't you? This thread will bring you crashing back down to earth with a thud - I don't think 1:2 can be beaten...

    (Technical note: A "lower" thread to post rating is considered (by me) to be better, because it implies you have a broader range of "Hexus.interests".)

    201:400 is NOT exactly 1:2

    I don't do subs though, no way to check easily without going through and counting every last thread I've posted in. (There's quite a lot, y'see)

    1:2 CAN be beaten, how about a new user who has posted once in the welcome forum? They now have a 1:0 ratio



    ?

    What kind of reply is that?
    Edit1: Your SPAM image just loaded - that's mean.
    Edit2: Changing min post count to 10. Thanks.

    I came here expecting RoFl's.

    I feel betrayed.

    You're just annoyed because your post count's too high. Your fault.

    Well I don't actually subscribe to threads, so I guess I lose big time?

    Agent, what are all the different colour UserNames for? Yours is orange - looks important.

    Green = Social people who have attended multiple HEXUS meets (check out the forum at the top )
    Red = Mods
    Orange = Admins
    Blue = Staff

    No more important than everyone else, including the members that make these forums

    Blue (like yours) - normal user
    Green - Social member
    Red - Mod
    Orange - Admin
    Light Blue - Staff

    Edit: Damn

    Don't forget the Care people all have variations too.
