I notice a lot of users who have, maybe 4 or 5 posts, but on those coincidences when I happen to see a post of theirs, I see that they have 8 green squares. Mind you, they don't have enough posts for any rep power, but still, that much good rep seems ridiculous. So I look at their profile to see who's been repping them, and it's those that hang out in chat all day and post (DarkMoonPrince, Teed, Asclipius (sp?), Nineteenth, etc).
So my questions: do you hang in chat much?
I have been known to sneak in on occasion, but I don't hang out there for long. I find chat very annoying, full of people who think they are the height of cool just because they can make witty banter, can control the conversation and who is in it/not in it, and are personal friends with the admins. Actually, I don't really like the chat admins either, but I won't say anything about them here, I don't want to get into any trouble. I think that, if they spend almost all their time in chat, they should just stay out of the forums then (and by "them" I mean members who are in chat all day). It's stupid to have birthday threads for them.
