An Honest Question

How many people think that some people post just so that they can grow "stars" and try to get "best answerer answers"?  I mean forget about posting honest valuable information I'm talking about redundant BS and things that shouldn't even be bothered with on the social forum as well as the medical side.  Almost like saying "agree" "agree" "agree" over and over and posting absolutely random thoughts just for the hell of it ... just for 'points'.

I think so, definitely and obviously.

What do you think?

I don't have the knowledge to answer anyone questions so guess I'll never get a star.
Maybe that should be one of my goals in life?

Happy being a non-star person

Check me out I'm agreeing with myself! ;)  Then I'll give myself a couple hundred best answers too (seriously I know you can't do that but it's a fun idea).  10,000+ posts later (between my old name and new) and I'm still here posting like mad crazy.  I just really like stars a lot.

I think posting on these HepC Communities is a way that helps ease anxiety. I've got 2 more weeks until my 6 month EOT PCR and I'm so anxious I can't stand it, that's why I've been on here so much lately. If you're not SVR you have to deal with a lot more anxiety.

you don't post useless drivel all day - well usually that is anyhow hahahahaa just kidding.

I'd just rather see real issues - like you said the social side is out of control and even though it's "social" it should have something to do with something real or relevant.........it's just outta hand now.  Like should I start posting about what I had for lunch - is that social or just absurd?

When a thought comes into my head, it comes out of my mouth... unless I'm having a "wise person" day, which doesn't happen too often. On here, if a question pops into my head, I type it. Can't talk to anybody around here about anything... they all look at me like I'm dying because I'm white as a sheet, and have slowed way down. I do try to answer what I'm pretty sure I know, and not just take up space.

But I must admit... I was tickled to get my 4th star.

As you know we can get stars just for saying there there poor baby or gee I know what you mean; or you guys are so funny.  And if you do it over and over, boom...another star appears.  If you pit some of the top star holders against someone like Willing who only has 3 stars it's quite comical isn't it?  Sad but true, quantity out ranks quality.  

I've got 3200 posts with some very compelling and precise information.  I think I have 4 stars, I really don't pay it much attention.  So if you come on board and post, post, post contents makes no difference because your going to rack up those stars up whether the post is drivel or facts.

Oh, forgot to say I rarely start a thread unless I feel it's worthwhile.  I think initiating threads fast tracks the star process.

One of the three most respected members of all time but no he's not a top answerer (that would be ridiculous he doens't post enough!) - that makes so much sense to me, after all why would people come here for quality over quantity?  Don't get me wrong we can get silly sometimes together, but basically we've taken this forum very, very seriously for the past many years. Now it's less about taking care of people who have hep and more about ego.  

Well we know who the top real posters are and that is what matters even if uh *cough* WillingMikeBill *cough* don't get the credit (sorry If I left somebody out I"m just making my point and am having a helluva week).

Im hoping not G - that horrible horrible little man......but my boss quit and will not be replaced (owners son) so I will have to take what I can get and then work on finding something else. So that means wearing turtlenecks in the middle of summer so I dont have to hear about what my boobs are doing on that particular day and all that other crud as you remember.

I'd rather do another course of interferon and I'm not really joking at all. But when you got kids what else you gonna do except pray things work out eventually.

"I've got 3200 posts with some very compelling and precise information."

Really? I thought I saw where you posted something about toilet paper removal. Seemed like lots of people enjoyed the laugh too.


"Oh, forgot to say I rarely start a thread unless I feel it's worthwhile.  I think initiating threads fast tracks the star process."

Do you think it could possibly be that you don't start many threads anymore because you have done many months of tx, and don't have any more questions to ask?

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I thought the whole reason for this forum was to give us new people a place to go to ask people who have been through it things that we need to know to make it through ourselves.

With all due respect, you are wrong.  This forum is not just for new people who are treating.  And that's all I'm going to say about that.
