View Full Version : Top Straight Boubon Posters

We were talking about this site last night in the chat room. There is a website that tracks top posters per week for various discussion boards. Last month I was #2, now I have fallen out of the top 5 -- the dangers of starting the semester back.

If it was not for active members, there would not be anything to read... and remember, the VBT game really skews posts and posts per day.

I do not recall any max postings and posts per day rules on this site. This site is tame compared to most. With this many members and how long the site has been around it is amazing that there are not a lot of 10K posters with closer to 10 posts per day.

If you want to judge your volume to worth ration, look at the responses or lack of responses to your posts... you have huge sresponse and following... keep it up man, I like reading your stuff...

.... and out posts just went up a couple more :D

If we keep posting to this thread, the three of us can keep our spots at the top!!!

I agree with Em... I would get a lot more done, but be significantly more bored if it weren't for people who post every couple hours.

Not surprisingly, 4 of the people on that list are in the top 30 posters all-time on the board...

There's a natural tendency for newcomers to post more frequently than old-timers. Over the years one's enthusiasm can't help but wane.

When I first joined, I checked for new posts several times a day and had a comment or question in response to most of them. Now I'm in lurk mode 99% of the time (partly due to the fact that my alcohol consumption is now limited for medical reasons).

Besides, does anyone really care that I had a sip of Blanton's recently and liked it better than I remembered? (I posted about a year ago that in my near-abstinence my preference for WT RR 101 vs. the 90 proof had reversed, but Blanton's? :skep: My taster is obviously out of shape.)

Yours truly,
Dave Morefield

I tend to be impressed by quality of posts over quantity.

Many of my posts have been thread killers, either out of my blazing wit or searing stupidity.

I'm somewhat in the same mode as Dave historically, I used to post a lot more when I could read every post at a leisurely pace. But with so many members now I can't even begin to read half the daily posts anymore. I've taken more of a shotgun approach and I'm sure I've missed many really enjoyable posts. I guess I'm a 486 processor on a thread that's gone quad core.

I guess that makes me a dual-floppy, 8086 machine with 640K of RAM. :cry:

A shame there is no count for posts perused. I've learned a lot from these forums. At some point in the future I'll disseminate the wisdom I've gleaned here and claim it as my own to get my post count up to snuff.

Cheers!

If one is to plagiarize, a good place to start would be with the posts of Marvin, key words: taste, tasting. (http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/search.php?searchid=576439)

His knowledge is at once enlightening and intimidating. I now resign myself to being a drinker, albeit an infrequent one these days, not a taster.

Couldn't get the link to work, but thanks, Dave. I'll do some searching.

Damn! I keep forgetting that search results are only saved for a short time.

Just redo the advanced search using the parameters in my earlier post. If you've never read Marvin's posts before, you will be amazed.

Here's a f'rinstance. (http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3293&highlight=taste) It's the first of several parts -- eight IIRC.

Yours truly,

Got it, thanks. Wow! Exhaustive to say the least.
Look for my 120 part expert bourbon treatise to appear soon. I'll be a Guru by Wednesday night if I can cut and paste fast enough.

Cheers!

Seems "ditto" was too short of a message. I agree with Wade!

Well, at least Chuck is still up there with me, otherwise I'd feel like I was totally surrounded by newbies....

Depending on how you define newbie (active last 6 months) it looks like it about half and half.

So I just joined another forum on cloth baby diapers (yeah, I know, there go all my man points) and they put us to shame. They have 21 members with over 10K posts (we only have 2 members over 5K) and their top poster has almost 33K posts. And they are discussing cloth diapers!!!

Folks, we need to get to work here. I know it is about quality not quantity, but surely there are more things to talk about concerning bourbon than cloth diapers.

Maybe they post smelling notes for every time they change a diaper. I could see a Virtual Blind Smelling forum in which they post what they smell and you have guess what the kid ate.
