Fair is fair???

If a person posts to a Man Laws forum thread, the post count does not increase.

If a person posts to a Women's Issues forum thread, the post count does increase (and decrease if the post is removed).

That is because when I look at the women's forum, I see threads on Women's Specific Equipment, (http://forum.scubatoys.com/showthread.php?t=3863) wetsuits for women (http://forum.scubatoys.com/showthread.php?t=1313), Wetsuits for Tall Women (http://forum.scubatoys.com/showthread.php?t=3685) etc.

In the Man Laws area, I see posts of Farting, Beer, peeing and Football. Now I realize you're a man.... but do you see the difference? :smiley36:

I would sugest the reason for the women post more gear specific threads in their forum is because until recent years there was not much specific gear for women.

Therefore all general post for gear would be considered for men to witch there are far more post. These are found in the respective threads for such gear.
This would leave the men's forum open to anything else that would fall outside of the gear catagory!

If you believe this thought process to be incorrect please explain....................

Agree everytime I post a gear question its in the general gear forum I guess we should take away all non dive related Sub Forums post count away!

The only reason they have higher level posts, is because we already know everything and dont need to ask for help. ;)

EDIT:

Does it really matter where we post/why we post? Is post count really that important? Regaurdless of the reason, it's obvious men dont take their "section" for real, and turned it into another "Fun and Games" section.

Here's what (IMO) we need. Two sections for men. One for goofing off, one for questions.

A Men's Fun & Games Section
A Men's For Real Section (or w/e the section would be named)

thats not the issue any time you post in a man laws forum you dont get credit for the post on your post count but you do if you post in the Womens forum section!
