Topic: Forum Leaders

Just curious. I was wondering who has the most forum posts (not that it's a competition) I've been checking in daily for quite a few years now and have like 125 or so posts which PALES in comparison to some of the veterans. I know the names I'm most familiar with are Jane H. and Rocket but I was wondering who actually has the most.

Hopefully this link will work
you can click the User List link above then sort by number of posts, descending order for the answer

its sort of embarassing but also i am proud of my posts counts but also shameless in my behavior over the years maintaining/defending  it big_smile i actually am not like this in real life!!!

interesting looking at it...and remembering misunderstandings about 'Bonametal" etc...apologies and congrats to anyone, looks like magc1 may have recently gotten there? congrats!...reo_l's on her way smile  but most of the big number posters blahblahed it all back when it was a bit more active on here..Bluesman had quit at one time and although he did originally make those posts, most of them disappeared.  I have trouble coming up with things to post now a days but it used to just flow out of me like, well like.....well, it used to flow out of me. big_smile I try to make it meaningful.
but post counts don't matter, its the Bonafellowship  you got your faith and your therapy
this place / Joe / Bonabuddies has been part of me for almost 16 years! Grateful

Merry Christmas

Re: Forum Leaders

This is so true Jane. The number of posts don't matter at all. Sadly many of the big and interesting posters are moved to other Joe's platforms, which is understandable because ultimately all sites with Joe's name are the ways of his fans to talk to him, and he never is here anymore. ( I, for one am writing here because I can not not to. My strange addiction) But life moves on, and social media laws are such that if number of meaningful posts per day is going down or none at all - the site dies.  And to be honest and real to ourselves  - who needs this old vintage staff when new and shiny sites are readily available.

I do!! smile 

(and thank you for having your strange addiction to here as well.)

Look at it as the JB Forum is the '59 Les Paul of the Joe sites ... vintage ... with a warm tone. smile

Well it is still here.Its quality not quantity !!

Re: Forum Leaders

Thanks for the link and the discussion. A ways back I, too, tried some of the "shiny" sites. Didn't care for them. This forum is more accessible, warm & cozy I guess. Have always felt more comfortable and part of the JB family here. Everything changes over time but we're still here and hopefully will remain. Merry Christmas to everybody.

Re: Forum Leaders

Still here, but mostly reading rather than posting.  Which makes me a poor community member since BBs rely on posters and interaction. I quit FB 2 days ago.  The intrusive ads, fake news, insipid posts and general BS is unbearable. Never joined IG or The Twitter - who needs BS cubed?

Kinda nice to return to the real world.

Re: Forum Leaders

Most of the fan sites on FB drive me nuts - same thing posted over and over.  I may not post as often but I am still here.

Re: Forum Leaders

It's odd that we even call people forum 'leaders' based on their post count. 'Leaders'?.. really? I think we are hard wired to see things that way from so many other forums that we have been on... that having been said, this forum truly is the exception.

The people on THIS forum with the huge number of posts are increasingly humble and kind (yes that's you Jane and Rocket, RickB, pattyluvsjoe, gary to name just a few...) whereas on almost every other forum on earth the people with the highest post counts are absolute dipsticks, rude, condescending and you had better not have an opinion until you get to at least 500 posts.

I remember the John Mayer forum in its heyday. By far the most savage forum I had ever been on and was rudely told to take myself somewhere else... so I did. Thanks to all the folks on this forum. It is an amazing place.

Re: Forum Leaders

Still here as it is such a nice and friendly place. Don't do social media such as FB and am only a member of one other forum that being the MX5 owners club which has the same approach. Long may it continue. big_smile

Re: Forum Leaders

I've been gone for a while been positioning my business for sale, well it's sold.  I've checked out Joe's other platforms and this feels like home. Not sure how much I'll be checking in, but I'll be around.

The only thing we deserve, is an opportunity.  Everything else has to be earned.

I seldom post myself but great to see you again, bobkatmsu.  Congrats on the business sale, bet you are relieved that's all finished.
