If you go to Edit Profile and click on View My Posts, you'll see the total number of posts you've made including the ones that don't show up in your avatar count because you are posting in NVMS.

Well I hadn't done that for a while, and I've found, much to my chagrin, that I've posted fully twice as much in NVMS as all my other "legal" posts put together.

I need a life.

Amen!

(Mine's only about 1:1, so I'm safe.)

To be fair, how many posts is it possible to make about the DL without being redundant Smile

I'm well past 7-1...rapidly approaching 8-1. I'd better go rave about one of the Simons (Aronson/Lovell), Nick Trost, or Chan Canasta.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Just checked mine. Glad to say that while I have WAY too many posts in NVMS, I still have more in Penny, Inner Thoughts and Mentally Speaking. It's close, though.

I'm 2:1 (well, almost 3:1). But That doesn't really tell the whole story. A few years back I rather enjoyed some of the game threads in a forum where the posts are counted, and probably 75% of my posts are there.

Personally, I disagree with the method of post counting (and have complained privately and publicly) here, because you just can't really define "magic relevant" posts. If someone is extraordinarily active selling and buying things, or complaining to the manager, that someone is still an extraordinarily active member. Why not let us know who those people are?

But then again, Danny Doyle might be embarrassed. His 100,000+ posts don't demonstrate much of a social life. Smile

I'm at 3 to 1. I actually thought it would be worse. Aren't there other places where posts don't count besides NVMS?

To be fair, I only do the first two names, though there's a lot to be said about Nick and Chan.

Still, it hasn't seemed to stop the proliferating DL threads. Almost as many as the evolution ones.

Wait a second, now I'm just making things worse, aren't I? D'oh!

OK, this made me realize that my non-magic related post count is actually very high due to all of the Escape items I've sold and traded over the last two years and NOT nvms! Yeah! That's the ticket.

"The Card Magic of Nick Trost" is one of the best magic books I own, and his "Trick Cards" (in that book) is the best packet trick I know of.

1.7 to 1. I guess I'm a light weight.

Of course if I could count all the nasty ones that were deleted... Smile

Wow, Bazinga, of course--I didn't even think about all the deleted posts! I guess that about doubles the ratio for most of us here. Especially if you've ever posted a message that includes any of the words "evolution, Republican, Democrat, Chance, Harry Lorayne, climate, Tea, s*cialist, cops, or Carrie Sue."

I'm a little over 3 nvms to every regular post.
