Dimavo, do go for it as you have a participation rate of only 19% at the moment which makes you rather 'silent' ;), but becoming a Top Poster does carry some notoriety with it, in fact, we have recently been poking fun with each other over this issue in the Jokes Board.

Doesn't "influence" me. But lets me know who is on and being active that day. So it's helpful.
Whenever I log onto this forum, I usually check the HOT TOPICS and then the Top Posters. I believe that I do this out of curiosity and also, mainly to see if any new members are posting more than the older members. Whether I am at the bottom or at the top of the list, it really does not matter to me.
At times I wonder if I make the top poster. I guess I may have but never really paid attention. I guess I better if people make fun of top posters. lol
At the top of the page if your looking in hot topics or just go to search and pick top posters. It will give you a list of who is top and where you are if your not top
I never understood why some people think that being the top poster is so much fun, probably they are naturally competitive in everything they do.
:gorgeous: This was never an interest for me cause I mostly come here to relax with some discussion not to get involved with competition.
