    I know I will probably be viewed as a scrooge but here goes anyway. I think all these "games" are nothing more than a ruse to up ones post count. I feel that these so called games artifically inflate people's post counts and really have nothing to do with a Treo or even T|C. I bet if these "games" such as "One Letter", "Word Association", etc., etc. were put into a forum such as the Test forum that didn't not go towards post counts, they would not be nearly as popular. Maybe even Off Topic, one of my favorites, could be a NO post count zone? I just think that post count should really be reserved people who depense knowledge and contribute to T|C. Instead we got people in here that have post counts in the 4000-6000 from playing in these games by answering such things as; right, left, up, down, out, etc., and some of these people have been here for less than a year. Again, this is just my thoughts.

    Flame On!

    I agree definately that the off topic forum should be set so that posts do not add to the count.


    great ideas!

    I think you're just trying to inflate your post count...

    As ironic as it is, this entire thread has done nothing more than inflate everyone's post count (mine included).

    Post on!

    Is there an incentive for achieving high post count?

    Not that I'm aware of...other than the pretty little Treo's under your name.

    I don't see any incentive for achieving a high post count either.

    BTW, they can not go into the test section because there is no test section.

    It has begun.

    The Tuesday poll was just closed for being "silly".

    What's next? "Slightly humorous"?

    Good! The noise-to-signal ratio had fallen quite a bit.

    I also like the suggestion of being able to exclude some forums when getting the page after clicking "New Posts".

    There does seem to be too many "games" in the OT forum. I would rather people use the OT forum for discussing things that don't pertain to the Treo than for +1 threads. I like games too, but we don't need so many of them.
