Richard it is partially a result of the ideas that were put forth in fatty's "Don't Let QueenZone Die" thread.

Because now people won't just post nonsense to get their post counts higher, everyone is equal now.

There was a sense in counts. If newbie comes with topic like "John wants to tour with Brian/Roger" - I have known - this is imagined gossip and I wouldn't start to read it. But if someone who has more than 1000 posts comes with such topic - I would read it, because I can trust.

Now it's hard to say who wants to discuss serious topics here or who wants fooling around by making new accounts every 5 min.

But can you trust someone just because they have over 1000 posts; even if they obtained them in only a few months?

I didn't remove the postcounts. I was merely answering the question as to why Richard removed them.

Post counts are irrelevent.

As my old school mates told me at the back of the boys toilets - "It is not size that matters - but how you use it".

In almost 4 years, I never scored over 1000 posts.
I never saw the point in beating the next kid.

But as long as post counts remain, there will always be those who post sh*te to bloster their counts and their popularity. If by removing the counts, it succeeds in stopping just one stupid thread - then it will be worth it.

As for trust - the internet is full of crap. Trust no one. Do not trust me. Use it as a corner stone for your own research, and if it fits with my thoughts - that is fine. If you do not agree with me, that is fine too - but at least come back at me with facts you have researched.

So if it means killing heresay, because you trust no one, and have to do a little personal research - then that too can only be a good thing.

This is excellent decision from Richard to remove post count.


But now it's time to be gone - forever...

I used to like seeing how many posts i had sent and i used to look forward to becoming royalty. I never used to send utter crap for the sake of hitting 1000 posts but i'm a little annoyed by this because i loved looking to see how many posts i had sent and how far away i was from becoming royalty. Still never mind.


It was obvious that you loved to see your post counts from the sheer amount that you posted in such a short time!

But now I think I'll begin to read even the easy questions, I kinda feel I should help people who know less than me, or at least post a link to the FAQ where they can find the answers they need. If today I know some about Queen, have some info about the bootlegs which are worth to download (which has helped me a lot to be always happy about the stuff I'm downloading), know many curiosities which nobody gives a d**n (except some Queen freaks like me), etc, it's only because people helped me a lot here on QZ when I was a "newbie" on Queen, and many people still help me a lot, so I feel that it's time to pay QZ for all the help I received from the zoners, and I think the best way of doing this is helping those who need much more help than me.

Before asks - yes, I am serious.


Wow! thank you very much!I'm a newbie Queen,cn't find so much abt Queen in our place,very lmtd,and when I pop out QZ,"lucky".Now,am happy reviewing Forums,pictures,and others,learning a lot fr all of you.Thanks!

If possible, we should bring back the date registered: this would be a much more reliable measure of n00bdom. I've been here since 2001 and had the same count as some crap posters simply because I've never been a prolific poster.

If they obtained them on only a few months - I'd know about it, because if you wanna obtain 1000 in few months you must reply to any topics here and everyone can see who works for post counts and who doesn't care about it. Everyone here knows guys who makes stupid and useless posts and have about even 2000 posts

Anyway I really don't care about these counts, so I wouldn't discuss about it! :-)
