The chatroom is there for when people have exhausted the boards but still want to chat, and you can post-dame there until you heart's content.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

you mean chat counts as posts? We spent the whole day there yesterday, it was a blast...and we avoided the bombing!

Chat does not count as posts.  We're not all about post count here (or shouldn't be).  Just look at my count and I've been here as long as anyone (shy of smokester and binks by a couple weeks).

Amateur.

True, but since you are the only one of us to be able to divide by zero and come up with a real number, I'll always be a nub in comparison.

That is interesting...so there are no threads that require a higher post count??..? That is my only reason for any concerns regarding number of posts. Other wise I couldn't care less.

The problem is that there is a fine line between what is a valid and invalid post.  A loose but funny comment that is barely connected to the topic in hand, can be just as worthy as a technical response.  The problem is that off-topic posts can sometimes modulate the thread into a a private chat between 2 menbers and that is the reason I have installed the chatroom.  Bombing threads can be essential as some really need to stay on track - threads like the "Ugly mug" for instance - but it isn't a punitive measure we inflict on members, quite the opposite as it should make the place more consistent as in turn, enjoyable.  That doesn't mean that people should stop posting, it just means that try and stay on track in threads that are of greater interest, and don't be surprised if if a post bomb lands if you don't.

Although post counts don't matter in regards to status or popularity, there is a ranking system and for some reaching the next level has its own element of entertainment or satisfaction so I wouldn't say that they are insignificant to everybody.

I may run a "ice slide" competition soon that may have a postcount or game points reward, so look out for that :)
