Somebody who endeavours to raise their post count any way they can is called a Post Count Whore. Somebody who makes meaningful conversation but also keeps a careful watch on their post count can also be a Wholesome Post Count Whore, but only if they draw attention to their post count, celebrating high counts or surpassing another member, or perhaps just checking out the member list on the sole basis of checking who's the next person they need to beat.

Wholesome Post Count Whores can actually be pretty productive on a board. The regular kind may just turn into {{Spammer}}s.

Post Count is, well, the number of posts a user of an online forum has made. However, many of the {{Fora}} out there have developed a mentality that it represents some form of status to have a high post count. They'll downplay people's opinions and make comments about the relative value of members. Obviously, this is fallacious logic (having a high post only means, well, having a high post count; it doesn't automatically mean that those posts really ''contributed'' to anything), but due to the correlation that an active member of a particular forum will have a high post count, it's easy to see how people can make this mistake. This is commonly paired with SuffersNewbiesPoorly, as a high post count is frequently seen as an indication that a member has been on the site for a long time, and is thus more "loyal" to the community (without taking into account any actual contributions the member has provided to the forum.)
