    Gold bullets above avatar???

    No, you can't "click" them!!!

    They are indications of the number of thousands of posts. Look at the number of posts a person has and divide it out.

    But who really cares about the # of posts? It is the quality of the posts that count. Some rack up thousands of posts with off-topic and silly threads and replies.

    I think its 1k per post for silver bullets and 5k for a gold, they don't mean much. Also keep in mind some parts of the forum don't count towards this. Just gives you a rough estimate of how much someone contributes on the forum.
    My feedback page if you feel inclined to add:

    Posts in the PIT don't add to post count.

    I also wish this forum had a like button to show you thought the post was educational and pertinent to the OP's topic.

    Post count means very little towards knowledge, just that you have posted a lot/been on the forum for a long time.

    Agreed, I find the "like" feature on other forums handy for showing appreciation. Anybody can be wrong a lot, but not everybody can put good info in a readable format.

    What I like are members from 2005 to 2009 with low post counts. Usually if they take the time to post, it is worth paying attention. Some of theses are Plank Members.

    I've been here a while, and don't post a lot due to someone else giving a accurate answer. Why be redundant?

    I'm a member of a couple other forums that have that feature. I'm always looking for the like button on other peoples posts here.
