View Full Version : The problem with Oskaar's posts . . .

. . . is that he's going at a rate of about 13 every day. The recent posts log for the GotMead forums only shows the most recent ten posts and of course, includes other posters. That means much of his daily output doesn't show in this section.

Oskaar posts some really great stuff, but if you're lazy like me and only look at the most recent posts log to see what's going on, you'll miss a lot of what he's saying. It's best to click on the individual forums (and I've *got* to start doing this :) ) to really get an idea of the GotMead conversations.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm finding that the response time is just too slow for me to browse through every forum. I'd love to, but the latest 10 is about all I can handle.

Another thing that is funny is that if you go to any other brew or mead forum, you will always see a post by him. ;)

Not only that, but this morning I went to check on my meads in secondary and there he was! Spillage my butt!

:P :P :P

Dan's right. Oskaar is a prolific and excellent poster. Tons of good info for beginners and veteran mazers. And very patient - if you really browse the forums and old posts, you'll find that our good Smeagol has often answered the same questions more than a few times.

Thanks and cheers Oskaar!

I don't want to leave out Ancient Joe, our second top poster. Joe's posting average got thrown off by an unplanned hiatus from the forums, but he's also a frequent contributor and helps out with a lot of great info.

And let us not forget the honorable Dan McFeeley, whose posts are informative, often scholarly, yet always accessible. I say "Wassail!" to all three -- where would the rest of us poor Gotmead mutts be without them?!

Here's why we'll never catch up to Oskaar's # of postings... Oskaar makes a post every 6.64 minutes he's on the forum (gleaned from his stats) and I suspect he visits every forum board with a new post multiple times a day, so as not to miss the other topics that might have been posted as well... then he responds to them all.

I think it's one of three things...
1. A deep seated need to be loved & accepted.;)
2. An Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.???
3. Just a predilection for having the last word.::)

Time will tell.

I'd put it down to being a quick and prolific writer. Another forum I hang out on, Chiff and Fipple, features several posters with totals of 4,000, 5,000 and even 6,000 posts. :o Oskaar's got a ways to go to catch up with that group!

Make that 1680!
