    Reviews, site comments, and Random Discussion in which you have posted arn't considered tech areas. Oops looks like with your last post here you lost a few more percentage points :eek:
    :D

    That brings up a question. Shouldn't that percentage be based on all posts less those in JUST Random? It is not a big deal, but you shouldn't drop percentage cause you post a site comment or question.

    Percentages to me mean absolutely zip ..... you can read through a members response to other questions to determine what suggestion you should follow . I don`t believe there are too many who strive for a 100% tech rating .

    Games aren't considered technical either I don't believe.

    I know that 700 and we have all debated that to death. Try to stay on our topic... ;)

    And Rockn, I understand where Games might not be 100% technical, but I would think that a lot of the threads there ARE technical as in "How do I get this game to work with my piece of junk PC?" I don't frequent that forum unless I have a problem, so I might be wrong and they are asking how to play or talking about a new game.

    I was just asking why a suggestion in this forum that solves technical issues on this site would subtract from one's technical percentage.

    Then again, as 700 said, I too ignore the percentages and go with the quality of posts, not the quantity...

    FYI, when we switch over to vb3 (this weekend, maybe?!), the tech percentage will be gone. Eventually, I might put a tech/non-tech post count in, but not immediately.

    Cool... Like I said, I never use it any ways. Scutch2222 just brought up an interesting question.

    Just the percent. For now we'll just be back to the normal post count. Eventually, I'd like to have two post counts: tech and non-tech, but I'm not going to address which forums will be which at this point. :)

    Oldies two penny's worth. I say Random is far too technical for many :D

    And all contributors to Random should receive air miles :D

    I say drop the post count all together because Thoey's undies are in a bunch..:) Instead we should have smilies with people that only post in random with the most extreme sad faced smilie you can find up to exstatic for 100% technical posters. Games are 0% technical as the only questions asked are "why doesn't my game work".
