post count used to help me determine how to answer a question. now we don't have that luxury anymore. it would also help determine weather or not to believe a person that is giving out advice. i know post count doesn't always mean a person is or is not a capable hobbyist, but a person dishing out information is gonna be heard just a bit less objectively it they have 500 posts compared to a person with 10 posts.
maybe it's just me, but given the choice of taking advice from RAZER or TRAXXAS_NEWGUY_JIM......i'll choose RAZER. but if it was between TRAXXAS_NEWGUY_JIM or NOOB2005.....who knows? a quick look at the post count may help a little. especially if one guy has like 1500 posts, and the other only has 15.
join date does help a bit also. but i thought both together were best.
just my opinion. what do Y'ALL think?
p.s. all names except "razer" were made up by me. hopefully they aren't real! and i did a search for "post count" and only got stuff from early 05.
