I believe that Off Topic posts (in the Off Topic section) are great and all but I think too many people are taking advantage of the True/False game and that brings peoples ranking up to make it deceiving... not to bring up another complaint or be annoying but I think any post in the Off Topic section should not be counted in someone's post count... I think this because many people post quite a lot in the True/False topic and that improves their post count... this may be hard for a new user to realize that this person is not helping the forum but just posts in the Off-Topic... there is nothing wrong with the Off Topic section... the only thing is that the post count tried to show who was helping the Forum (about cubing and not random stuff)...

I think there's too much emphasis being put on post count.

In a way I agree with you... I have reasons to support both sides of this debate... if you would call it a debate...

I think people are posting about this, to increase the post rank. Lots of us agree that we don't care about post rank, and we know who really knows what they are talking about ,so I think we should just drop the subject.

Okay... I can't really delete the entire topic but I can just say... no more posting... o en español, fijando, oder auf den Deutsch, gebend bekannt, or in Italian, no more posting, ou en français, plus signalant... now there is no more posting and there is no excuses because I said them in many different languages...

"Once upon a time,
there was a poem with rhymes,

talking about a guy,
whose name started with pi,

who tried at all costs,
to stop off-topic posts,

but no one ever listened,
so he changed his system,

and avoided more hassles,
concentrating on his puzzles..."

PS I apologise if it made you cry... :P

hehehe

Since my cube page has been online (1995) I have received and answered 9182 Rubik's Cube related emails. This is more than I will post here, I think.

I like the off topic posts because they give us as an online community a chance to talk about the important,trivial and surreal things of everyday life.A lot more recent posts are going into off topic section as there is not a lot going on with puzzles at the moment,though this will change when new puzzles are released,Harry.
