You don't understand what what is? Rep? Posts? Accomplishment threads?

I suggest clicking the rather large link that says "What the heck's Rep Power?" in Flex's signature. Just an idea.

Guys back on topic!

What needs to happen is people need to show some common sense and restraint like we used to and only use threads like that for important events
not every five minutes

Well I say you should only let people make like post threads like I'm pretty sure in a day or two I'm going to make a "yay 1000 post thread" but I don't think people should do anything other than "i got so and so amount of posts"

Why exactly does anyone feel the need to celebrate simple post accomplishments though
quantity is pointless its quality that matters
I have over 9thousand when was the last time I made a thread like that?
I just past my 4yr mark a few days ago


those don't matter
what counts is how you act
how you try to help

not LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME I'VE SPAMMED EVERYWHERE TO GET A DIFFERENT FACE YAAAY

Like this is retarded

hardly an "accomplishment"

A four year post I can understand, just because that is a really big accomplishment, especially when this place is only four years old. But it we follow Flex's idea that would also just go in that one sticky. In my opinion, the WPR would look much neater.

But like Cody said, VT is for helping others out when they are in need, so why spam to get a new face, or have a party when theirs new rep? In my opinion it's just shallow and selfish, which is not what VT is for.

And I agree that 4 years is a long time too. I think that Flex's idea of having a "stickied" thread for accomplishments is good but so then would it only be for reaching so many posts like on govteen or would we also be able to put rep accomplishments? Because govteen only has it for MAJOR posts but then they also don't have rep power on their sight.

Some places have a separate section just for member accomplishments, but idk if their are enough members on this site to make that worthwhile.

Agreed with Andy. If you have a diary then you could use it for accomplishment posts.

I didn't say that we should have a stickied thread. I said that we should have a bumped thread. I'm clarifying because you misquoted me.
