This is a discussion on NewGuy is Lost within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hey there,
I have been a member here for a few years. According to my profile I have 18 posts. That is all that I can
"A quality post will be relevant to and will add value to the thread it is posted in. Short one liners, posts begging for passwords, simple agreement type posts and any post that appears to be posted just for the sake of increasing post count are all examples of posts that could be deleted for being low quality posts."
As I understand it, your post count is equal to the number of quality posts you have, since low quality posts will be deleted, thus also lowering your post count.
2. You could reply to the many off-topic threads like the one on Donald Trump or the vaccine. Just make sure you're choosing an active thread and your replies meet the criteria for a quality post.
Please note that if you obtion "platinum" status and can play in all the CC events, then you also need to maintain a reasonable posting activity after that. If you have only made 18 posts in a few years, you are simply not active enough for "platinum" status. You could change that of course by starting to participate in the forum on a more regular basis. And as explained already, a "quality post" is simply anything not bordering on spamming the forum. Best of luck
