It's very simple. Just get in a mock, which will be good for at least 200 posts right there. Join several each year, and BOOM, you're in like flynn. Join immediately at every opening, without considering whether other people might also like to have a crack - its an early bird and worm type situation, no room at the table for slowpokes. And if your count still isn't high enough, just make a hundred or so posts with emoticons.

It may sound stupid, but going by post number is the single most reliable way to determine whether posters will give you timely, informed picks for the entirety of the draft. Trust me, if there were better ways, someone with a LOT of posts would have thought of a way!

im pretty sure if you try to make hundreds of post with emoticons, you'll get banned :-°

you're supposed to get your experience by chiming in and doing your research on the forums first, and not saying someone with a low post count cant be knowledgable, because there definitely can be, but its just a way of making sure people dont stop looking at the mock after 3 rounds...

the forum dedicated to sigs is usually hopping during the season but during the off-season it slows down, much like the rest of the cafe.

hope i could be of help

Sounds like an argument for longevity, consistency, and quality, not quantity.

true, but how could you ever measure the quality of someone's posts if there isnt a big enough sample to look at?

Says the man that moaned like crazy at me for trying to put a post limit on my NL mock last year, got in when I relented, spent most of the mock complaining about it not going fast enough then dropped out half way through.
