See, I had this strategy: since I don't know much about magic (I'm here to learn, not to teach) I thought that I could bum around this part of the Café and make a lot of posts and skyrocket my post count. I'm trying to approach Jonathan Townsend's count so that I can have "eternal order" after my name. Because that sounds really cool!

So I have posted and posted here--thousands of posts--but I'm still not part of the "eternal order"! Apparently, posts here--in the "not very magical, still" forum--do not count.

Okay. I understand. Posts here do not count. (Especially when they get deleted because of references to posters of Matt Colman.)

Does this part of the Café mean nothing? I object! I protest! I want to be a part of the eternal order!

That's why I never post here.

Are you telling us that you have been here since Nov 3, 2006 at 6:27am and you have realized that your posts don't count? Smile

I realized that after my first few days, right after I learned that all my posts don't matter.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Careful - thread could conceivably be construed, by some wild stretch of the imagination, to be veering toward some gentle and oblique criticism of Café policies, and thus (since we don't count) it is DOOMED TO DELETION!!!!!!

No, I've been here since April 2, 2006. It took me over six months to figure out how to post.

Hey, I'm not a rocket scientist. I'm a teacher. Don't expect too much from me.

Does the New York Post count?

I have yesterdays issue.


Here Jeff, have (another) Guinness. Sooner or later you'll see your post count double

Maybe you should get your posts to watch "Seseme Street"!

Barry, that one might not count, but maybe try it again. Keep trying until they do count.

Hey, if I don't count the bottles, I get into trouble, since my wife counts them.

"Jeff, how many did you have last night?"

"Uh...three."

"So why are there nine empty bottles under your night stand?"

Hold on....

What are we counting in this thread, anyway. Posts or bottles? After three bottles, I get confused about which thread I'm posting to.
