Great little article! Nice to see us get a little exposure. I doubt there would have been any way for folks to get mentioned without some feeling left out.

Popular is subjective. My oc thread has had some decent views (~2,200) and got stickied, so by that token could be considered popular and helpful, but I haven't posted much for the past year so I doubt most new members know me. It's irrelevant now with i7 but at one time it wasn't (note to self - make an i7 thread).

I think it's commendable that whoever was interviewed decided to share the recognition to the entire forum and celebrated the community, rather than the individual. I agree that there are a few amazing users who help everyone out a little more than others, but if we didn't have the large number of regular/new members asking questions, those 'helpers' would be nothing (extreme example, apologies for the hyperbole).

I feel that if you choose to recognize one person, you should rightly recognize everyone who contributes...which means all of HWC. The forum wouldn't be the great forum without everyone's contribution, be it the person asking the question or the one answering.

And that kind of exchange draws a lot of members who don't post but simply read the threads for their own enjoyment/education as well, which is quite important too.

What I meant was, you could have mentioned a few specifics instead of being so general. That would have put some links to threads, and generated some more visitors who might have become mebers.

Squeetard, there are links to threads in there. Just click on the green lettering :P.

CMetaphor, I don't know what you're talking about. I think Mike answered the question perfectly fine. The ones that have high post counts here have them that high because they want to help and get involved, not to become famous on the internetz. There really is no need to say what member did this and that because everyone has a little say on the subject, which is why, the way I see it, he linked the respective threads without introducing names, if you get what I mean.

I agree with you here, while its obvious who the regulars are, I don't think any one of us are more popular or more well liked than others. We don't have people going "OMFG, NO WAI, CHILLIEH POSTED IN MY THREAD, I FEEL HONOURED!"

(In reality people are more likely like "WTF, this ******* idiot again?" when they see me )

You're aware that every single "green text" is a link to the forums right? There is a total of I believe 14 links, 10 of which are text links into the forums.
Sky outlined 8 unique threads - there was plently of plugging.

If you wanna get specific, technically our most popular posters are our moderators (with the exception of enaberif)

Or net neutrality, and even politics! We have plenty healthy debate here on HWC, people(usually) know how to respect each other and present their arguments without degenrating into personal insults and flaming wars.

Personally, I love the fact that we can have health debate on here.

Perhaps i was misunderstood. But saying something like "We have many dedicated members with hundreds if not thousands of posts on the fourm that are always willing to help" would've been a little more "pat on the shoulder", dont you think? lol.
