Although a high post count does not guarantee that the member has any brewing knowledge it will guarantee that they know a little about the forum they are posting in. You however, have 36 posts may be a bit early for member bashing rants.

That said, by the time your post count is a bit higher, perhaps you will understand that even though many of the high post counters here are literally professional brewers or know so much about brewing it will make your head spin, those same posters continually show how humble they are by saying things like 'I'm no expert but, this is what I would do'. The knowledge on this forum is incredible and can be a great tool for any brewer no matter the skill level.

Bash away, but you will find this to be a different sort of forum and it would behoove you to lurk a bit more before posting things like this.

Now that that is out of the way.... Welcome to the forum! I hope you can become a great part of our community!

Ya Huh! For every 1000 posts the EAC's clue you in on another acronyms.

Once you know what they all mean there's nothing left to learn and you resort to druckin ramblers.

Obviously posts have no correspondence with brewing knowledge. However, there are plenty of helpful people on here. I have a hard time knocking this forum in any way.
play the bass, brew the beer

What's tappening? :D

What an odd rant. I don't notice that higher-postcount people act like they know everything. I will say that the more time I spend around here, the more I know about brewing. Does that necessarily mean that high postcount means anything? No. But if one has a high enough post count to have been around here for a long time, and they are still pretty newbish, then something's not right. This place has helped my brewing immensely, and I do feel like I have a good knowledge base for someone who's only been brewing for a smidge over 2 years. But as to what the OP says, I don't see it. I just don't see all these people acting like they know everything. Hell, every time I try to tackle something new (like kegging, for example), I'm a noob all over again, and I have no problem admitting it. Many people here are the same way, and so to the OP, I ask that you provide some examples of this phenomenon.

I wouldn't expect anyone to learn anything from me. I'm a total noob. Pretty much the only time I post advice (Except if I'm druck) is to catch panicking fellow noobs when they want to know if their beer is supposed to stink the way it does, or if that crap on the top is supposed to look like crap....And I only even do that if there is nobody sensible around. .).

You gotta give the Gnome credit for approaching 1,600 in less than a year.
But it you get real nerdy,
Gnome = about 6 posts/day
Yooper = about 12 posts per day,

On average, the Yoop is twice as smart as the Gnome.

This from someone who clearly is a moron based on current criteria.

Rant Complete.
  • I'm guessing this rant is really aimed at someone in particular..though it's flung in the direction of many of us.
  • I'd suggest that if you have better advice to offer, that maybe you do so instead of ranting against those who do go to the effort to help others.

...and don't be confused...I was offering priceless, sage brewing advice by my 14th post....
