    Not sure what to make of this, but this is a combined total posts from each game per round.

    Swamprats are bonza fun and the Warriors are boring??

    A high number of posts doesn't necessarily correlate with fun, nor does a low number of posts necessarily correlate with being boring.

    Can you compare them to last season? Give us a bit more to discuss. Good idea though

    Maybe do some line charts and analyze posting trends across the rounds.

    One of the most boring teams is third most active.

    Seems like there's a direct correlation between the number of posts and the shitness of the team.

    The majority of my favourite weeks have been against teams in the bottom half of the table, posting for the sake of high numbers is in the worst interests of the league

    Any team after 3 is just mashed together.

    Z’s with lines through them are gross

    How do you differentiate from sideways Ns?

    Do one by character count.
    Try to stay on your feet.

    IMO 1st and last, the Swamprats and the Warriors, were the most fun to meet in match threads this season.

    Can confirm that the Warriors are a basket case and have sunk even lower than the Royals.

    They are to differentiate between z's and 2's in maths.

    Enjoyed the warriors, royals and gumbies match threads most so if anything this just confirms in my mind how little, high posting numbers mean.

    Exactly. Even though we're on the same team I found the Warriors and Royals less fun to post against than the Swampies, Furies and Hawks.

    This is what i really getting at.
    There is a massive difference and no correlation at all between high posting teams and the win/loss aspect of the SFA.
    As a rookie who had never heard of the SFA before S26, its a bit of a shame that active posting teams, who put the effort in, don't get a small percentage of advantage in a game of Qooty.
    I'm thinking along the lines of "reward for effort" type of thing.
    To me a team that has a care factor of bugger all and wins a flag would be disappointing, same as a team that really makes an effort and has a great participating team, finishes last, that would be deflating, does this happen?
    I understand its all about the fun, but I'm just curious about how it all goes down really.

    I can only imagine how shitty this place would become if your performance was rewarded by post count.

    The thing is quantity doesn’t necessarily equate to effort so it would be a meaningless and impossible task. You get people who could post 100 times in a thread putting less thought into them than a poster that only posted 10 times.
    There have been cases of clubs having an unsuccessful season on field while being a dominant force off of it however it is practically impossible to fix and personallly my enjoyment in a match thread doesn’t rely on the result anyway.
