Well thats the point, if he posted all the time his percentage would go down!

(has a horrible percentage, and still rarely post)

We have charts? Do we have graphs too?

I was just using slang. They aren't really charts, it's short for Chartographic Manipulatory Steneogramatographer. The most useful tool available for measuring awesome forum posts.

Well why didn't you bloody well say so in the first place, instead of leaving us all utterly confused? Young people and their crazy slang these days...

Surprisingly, I actually like it. I noticed the change just prior to me being internetless (moved), and was worried, but now, a few posts later, the change hasn't happened in any way that makes posting or reading more difficult or anything, so I'm good with it.

Pardon me, but have you actually looked at my posts? I can only see one, possibly two posts that I think are at least halfway funny. That makes my percentage of hilarity a mere four percent. Surely that cannot be a rarity in this forum!

Shut up! I had a nice derail going. Do you know what kind of damage you have just done? Hopefully it can be salvaged, but I fear the worst. If only science could create an indestructible derail, then I could rest easy.

This is a forum for a humour strip, so I generally measure the quality by the number of guffaws per post (GPP). Ideally, the GPP runs at around two to three, because anything more will cause fluid loss, whilst any less will leave the reader feeling apathetic or possibly even overtly hostile. If this forum was instead based on a website that primarily offers uplifting stories, I would measure quality differently. Perhaps in Contented Smiles Per Post, or maybe Joyous Tears Per Post.

How are you measuring quality?

The number of times I want to jack off?

Oh wait, that's the other forum, sorry.

I measure it FIGs, or, fucks I give. High ratings equal good posts.

because let's face it, 7 and a half centimeters just makes it sound like it's bigger and you want to impress chicks as classy as Frostbite's dead mother.

Funny, that doesn't make it sound bigger to me. Converting it into inches makes it sound like it's smaller for me. Go figure.

To irk Edminister some more, what I am currently disliking is I don't know how to go straight to the unread posts in a thread. If I haven't looked at the forum in a while, figuring out where the new stuff starts requires either a lot of guesswork or having to read the entire thread or both pretty much.
