(Closed) Do you judge bees on the amount of posts they have?

  • poll: Do you skip over a thread because the poster doesn't have a certain number of posts?

    Yes, I nearly skipped this one. (LOL)

    Yes, all the time, but only if it's a really low number.

    No, it doesn't make any difference to me.

    Sometimes, depending on the title of the thread.

    I won’t respond on say, an emotional thread started by a bee with 2 posts. Mainly because they never come back to respond and it frustrates me lol For me, that’s why I won’t respond or read posts if they’re newer bees. Sometimes if I was interested in the thread, I’ll try to find it and go back to it to see if there are updates & THEN read the whole thing though. I just don’t need to be left hanging lol

    I judge Bees who have one post and it’s a controversial topic. I assume troll outright, even though I realize some people do find the Bee in Google and may come here for legit advice – but if they never return to the thread, I won’t give them the time of day.

    Other than that I can’t say I really do. I guess when it comes to recaps I care more about higher posters, but that’s because I have seen the progress and have been anticipating the recap.

    And as far as high count posters, I don’t judge much. I do if the person is posting 100x a day, I guess, but those are few and far between.

    I hardly ever notice the post count.  If I open a thread and it seems very dramatic, troll like, or very immature then I will check the count to see if it’s a new person.  But heck, even if an elder bee made a post like that I still wouldn’t get involved.  I try to go based on if the topic actaully interests me.

    Now honestly the only time I might not click on a thread even if it sounds interesting is if I recognize the name as someone who I don’t really care for.  No use clicking on something I know I won’t enjoy or will annoy me.

    No, post count doesn’t entice or deter me either way. I know of posters who had thousands and came back under new names with low post counts, and of posters who have been here for years and have accumulated a lot of post counts gradually. So the number doesn’t necessarily mean too much when you put it into context.

    No, unless it’s obviously someone trolling or a fake account

    I do but in a nice way! I look at bees with post counts in the thousands and think they must be really popular. Post counts don’t encourage or deter me from responding though

    I’m all about the titles- not the post count.
