    Negative Post Count!

    I was just looking at the rules and scheming evil things when I read this bit I hadn't seen in awhile about post count villainy

    negative post count, haha, thats funny stuff... erm, I was just curious, anyone here ever had a negative post count? Surely more than one person must have experienced this? :confused:

    One and one make one

    Not as such, no. I have had posts that didn't count when my clock and the forum's clock were set in such a way that I posted 4 hours into the future.

    I don't think the mods were serious in any case.

    Let's flip Ash's post count to -17,000 and see how long it takes him to get back into positive digits.


    My guess, 5 to 7 days depending on eating habits and such.

    It has happened several times. Mostly to people who post "Yeah! I made it another 50 posts!" threads.

    of course they don't mean anything, I was just wondering if I held the distinction as the only one ever to be negative or atleast lower than -200, it doesn't mean anything, but it is fun to have had both the highest and lowest postcounts

    It seems ironic that a thread about negative post count will be posted by Ash :lol:
    I'm sure you could lose your post count, like if a thread is deleted, but is it possible to get into the negatives without a little "push" from the mods?

    I am sure Ive seen someone with a negative post count. But it was something like -5. And I am not sure if it was this forum anyway. =/

    A negative post count would be like a hole in the time/message board continuum, a hole where missing posts should go, like negative mass or negative pressure. Like the universe is short a couple of posts or something.

    Don't worry, I'm sure ash can make up for it.

    I want my post count hard set at pi. Screw this whole rational numbers bullcrap. Rationals: countable. Irrationals: UN-freaking-countable.

    Irrational numbers are just too cool for skool.

    Wouldn't it irk you if pi ended at some certain digit way off in the distance of infinity that we will never have the capability to count to, but it exists anyways?

    Besides, in my state pi is legally set at 3.4. Owned.

    It would really irk me, since pi is proven irrational, and finding the end of it would break math.

    Brilliant plot idea for a doomsday device right there. Pity hollywood won't use it because most of the audience would be scratching their heads wondering how something that comes in a cherry flavor destroys the universe.

    3.4 isn't really close at all. Just not at all *head explodes* Your state is stupid.

    Maybe Ash can get enough posts to wrap around back to negative.
