Thread: Amazing CS statistics .... WARNING: sense of humour required

    Default Amazing CS statistics .... WARNING: sense of humour required

    OK guys, I'm really bored, so here's some "interesting" stuff i noticed about the posting behaviour in CS .... please to take it with a pinch of salt. They are meant to be be funny and not taken seriously.

    *DISCLAIMER*
    NO ITS NOT OFFICIAL STATISTICS ... THIS IS DONE PURELY IN THE NAME OF FUN, AND IS IN NO WAY REAL OR RELATED TO THE MODERATORS ...

    1) One in every three threads will have "BUY BUY BUY" in it ...
    2) Once every month (at least) some brave (benefit of doubt .. the other word i can think of would be foolish) canonite / nikonian will venture into the forbidden grounds and make some outragous statement that starts a flame war.
    3) There is a secret competition between canonites and nikonians on how many people the can lure to the other side ... i dunno who's keeping score though ....
    4) 90% of the newbies who post photo for comments seldom get constructive comments
    5) 90% of the portraits posted will have a comment "ooh .. pretty model" ...
    6) Most portraiture critics have a unhealthy obession with neat hair ... "the model's have too messy" ... :P
    7) Most canonites and nikonians who obsess about their expensive equipment seldom post their works ... (ok .. i admit, i made this one up ... )


    anyone wanna contribute more?? again .. this is meant to be a fun exercise ... do take it with a pinch of salt

    8) At least once in 2 mths, some one will start such a list.
    9) Once in a month, or after some major product launch, some one will inevitably write in to groan/moan/bitch about being cheated/received lousy service by AP, MScolor, CP, TCW or any major camera shops (this list of shops are not arranged in order of merit of complaints).

    11) Everyone seems to think their equipment doesn't devaluate when they are selling ... but everyone else's depreciate at least 50% when they are interested to buy ...

    12) Once a month, some one will start a thread "Sigma vs Tamron zoom lens", even tho there are hundreds of replies on this topic already.

    11) Every now and then someone will ask what are these secret codewords:
    - CP/AP/MS/John/Lords
    - DOF/FLM/Bokeh/Trinity
    - AFD/AFS/L/ED/VR/IS
    - MRT/LRT/***/SDP/oops....

    13) Everytime when someone starts an MO, inevitably another would say "I can get it cheaper".... without offering to tell the rest where or himself/herself doing the MO.

    14) When the mods starts an MO, inevitably someone will question the warranty, complain abt the pricing, the availabilty of stock, why close MO so early/start so late... etc

    15) At least once a month, some rep from a company will inevitably ask for free services among CSers....

    24) Every 10 seconds, another post is added to the thread 'Sentosa Outing on 29/08/04 sunday', which I suspiciously think is competing with 'Newbie Outings Chit Chat' for the longest thread ever!
