I've found a really good way to boost your poll count - just add a reply quoting a post without adding anything to it! ;)

Also, don't forget that if you have any corrections you need to make to one of your posts - don't edit the last post, JUST ADD A NEW ONE!

That way, not only do you look much more involved in the conversation (when you actually added nothing and looked like a pleb) but your poll count goes through the roof! ;)

I was going to just say that this is funny, but then I realised that if I left it at that then my post would be a lot shorter than my signature - so I've had to add a bit of stuff in to just pad things out and stop me from looking like I'm just trying to get my post count up. There, no not even that is enough is it? Maybe I could add something witty to this but then again I'd have to put it in CAPITALS to make sure people read it amongst all this uselessness. I guess I'll just..........have.........to..........pad.....my..........post..............out
...............a.......
.........bit............to................make...........it.............appear..
............longer.


There, I think that should do it. Nice work Beersoft ;)

The problem may be that the people who read these kinds of threads are the people who are annoyed by daft posts, not the people who are making the daft posts! :twisted:

I was walking past a building and I saw a man standing high up on a ledge. “Jump! Jump!” I started yelling. What happened next would haunt me for the rest of my days: the man came down from the building and beat the living daylights out of me.
