    I've slowed a lot, but it's mainly because of the political lumps who can't form an original thought.
    It may be my imagination, but it seems like you've spent posts providing good answers to questions since the change in tracking post counts though.

    My new thought is to provide a -1 count for each post in O/T. That way the true Treo purist helpers (i.e. u know who) could have their helpful positive post count and the post whores here in O/T can be called out for their lack of thoughtful help with their negative post count.

    I don't know if this would really work. Take Insertion (hes easy to pick on). He does help people in the other treo forums, but he would have to help 10-15 people a day in order to make up for the lost posts in the OT forum. As far as the OT posters, I don't think its a lack of helping. Plus it seems like we have a lot of people who are much more informed on the treo 650 (which figures since its been out for coming up on a year)...so maybe the market for helping newbies is shrinking.

    You'd have to make that decision to be (as Jesse Jackson would say) a uniter or a divider. I would be a divider b/c I don't like to help newbs figure out the following..
    *what that blinking star is
    *how to turn off the treo
    *how to soft reset
    *how to turn phone on silent, etc.
    I am not needed over there. I would be happy to help with more important treo questions and have my post count hover around zero. It would be a challenge sort of like those races with the old cars which is based on coming in at a specific time, not necessarily the fastest time.

    I've always been around 50/50. OT was entertainment for me. Still is to a degree, but outside of the games, I'm done with the socio-politcal talks. I've grown tired of trying to talk with the "I stubbed my toe, damn you George Bush..." borg drones.

    Probably what you more notice is I've been less likely to dust off the flame thrower.

    this is a silly conversation. Personally I can care less about having a high post count. Anyway, if a high post count is really is that great of a thing for someone, you can have mine, I'll give you my handle. Just PM me and its yours.

    wtf is going on? What are you doing Cell, this thread keeps getting bumped in New Posts, but it's the same post from you for an hour now (even though the post time changes)

    What? You do not know everything I do and say anymore? Are your omnipresent powers fading?

    I personally always thought that the whole of the community makes up the community spirit of TreoCentral. That would include Other Topics forum, Other Handhelds forum, Win & Mac users, Palm & WM users, Current / Previous / Wannabe Treo Users, Rep & Dems, Christians / Jews / Atheists, Those who enjoy ranking up High Posts & Those with High Post Count Envy.

    I have never been much of a post count counter myself, at least nothing more than amusement, but I do find it a little childish to have it an issue......as well as self destructive for TC. What I mean by that is, that this TC has developed into a whole community with a common bond. As with any group with a common interest, the growth within the community always grows stronger when there is more to bond with or when there is more to talk about than just same topics that have been hammered through from every possible angle over the last year since the release of the last Treo.

    If the motivation for a member is to come here and get an answer about their Treo or to help a newbie, then great they get what they came for. If they come here to see what Treo users think about the latest "Treo Killer", then great they got what they came for. If the member comes here because they enjoy seeing how high they can get their count, then they are being shrugged away. If they enjoy OT discussions or one of the Word Games, the new policy seems to put them below the rest.

    I don't know....I just feel it takes a whole (including non-undermined OT tangents) to make a community. It should offer the member whatever they come here for.

    Still think its a stupid policy. I'm banning TC for a week (at least). Sorry, but the 1000's of uncounted posts deserve it. Really O/T has been a bore as of late. It's now gonna be worse. Hang in there atm fans see you soon.

    You could call Jesse, and tell him you feel disenfranchised.

    Really was not a question more of a shock and awe statement.
