Probably not, since I am probably the one you are referring to but how to get the rest of the members to post more and to post new topics that are of interest you all?

Next, how to pass along information to the members when it comes about in the news, if no one else posts it? Some forums have a member name Newsreader or something along  those lines to post it under, we do not.

Also believe it or not, I brought this same topic up to the moderators recently and in the past. Do you have any suggestions?

added, btw Mike, thank you for bringing this up...

BTW, something I did not even pay attention to before is that I am the one who moves the most topics to where I think they would be easier for readers to find, therefore I just noticed that those count as posts for me too, and raise my post count, thus members should not count those posts being moved by me or other moderators as real posts.

If it was not for you starting Topics there would be very little action on the forum, since most including myself seem more interested in viewing/reading the post than starting or commenting.  Don't get me wrong I am not looking for the forum to become like FB/Twitter etc.  On the other hand we do see/hear/experience, unusual/weird/noteworthy situations on a daily/weekly basis these things could be of interest to our members.  Bottom line is post what you feel is worthwhile/interesting/comical to the forum for the benefit of the other members.

All forums are not alike, this forum is restricted to mainly of topics about the Philippines created by the owner, Don Herrington which is his prerogative and members have to abide by his rules. It's his forum and is run the way he wants it. So, going off topic is a NO NO, but sometimes tolerated by Admin and the moderators on here and that's why they sometimes make posts more often than other regular members on here.
I'm only one of a few Fil/Ams on here and have lived here 18 yrs and only post when members on here need assistance and or information about the Philippines and or of other topics I've experience all the years I've been living here.
So, the OP's question "How much is too much?", is sort of a misnomer! JMHO!

I have nothing wrong with what Mr Lee is doing.  Truth is, he finds the articles usually that are of interest and pertaining to the Phils, which is one of the rules of this site.  He gets the news to those of us who pretty much just ignore tv and local radio. 

Most on here just ask questions to learn about living here and a few times articles are posted by the rest.  I have never been on any other sites really.  I'm not into drama.  If I was, there are many movies or just have to walk from my house to Tina's family's house and I'll get all the drama I need.  From what I've been told some of those other sites can get dramatic and full of tense arguments.  This one is a little be more mannerly.  So probably not as popular to the drama queens and kings.

This forum has a World News section and a hidden section about other topics, so posts that are not about the Philippines are allowed and especially if those would be of interest to members, and besides that, the rules of this forum are much looser while I am one of those administrating it than ever before, now that is not an insult to those who ran it before, or to the other admins, IMHO they ran/run it much better than I ever could and I wish Jack would come back and take over again and that the other moderators and admins would post more often, so I can be just a regular member. I never minded dealing with spammers, which BTW also accounts for a lot of my post count and which are in the moderator and administrator sections, so not seen by members.

Other members are welcome to comment and I actually welcome all opinions, so if members wish me to stop posting please, please, please say so, I post to help others, if the majority feel my posts are annoying rather than helpful, then I will happily stay in the moderator section of the forum and just deal with spammers.

Also, BTW I am a moderator on another forum and hardly ever post on there.

Doesnt bother me, I can read what interests me and not read what doesnt, regardless of who posts it.

This ^. It's like watching TV. If you don't like the program, change the channel. I don't care who posts or how many times someone posts. I think the more (posts) the merrier.

any post is a good regardless of who posts it if it helps 1 person or many or even if just to entertain people no one should care who posts and how many times its childish . i read all new posts regardless if any of it i need just to keep informed by news and such . like metioned before i dont read paper listen to radio or watch tv news so if anything intresting pops up im sure ill get it here because of the nice people keeping us all informed .i dont think i have started topics because thats me im a reader and reply where or where i feel needed as do many others here. if you feel 1 person is posting too much too bad that person feels they need to inform or entertain others or just idle chit chat thats what a forum is for .sorry to anyone offended just my 2cents :)

Nothing wrong with a good ignition switch. To read or not to read, that is the question. At least you have a choice. Nothing worse than checking in and no new posts. Just wish the new topics were not as blatantly Republican so often.

are there non republicans here?  i have to admit republican primaries are more interesting - just don't take them seriously.  the characters are colorful, liars or no liars - now a new twist!  what's romney up to?

I donít think who originates the post matters at all. If the subject is of interest then it has value and is worth taking the time to read. Some other sites have people posting nonsense mixed in with other posts of interest and that type thing is annoying.

On this site everyone seems to be interested in providing useful info or points of view.

I'll go along with what most have said here already.  The status quo is fine. 

I do not find that Lee or anyone else can be faulted for "excessive posting".  Lee often posts stories, links to stories, news, etc. that I sometimes find interesting, sometimes not.  As others have said, I can choose what to read.  I cannot say that I have found myself spending inordinate amounts of time separating the wheat from the chaff. 

If folks around here had to wait for me to come along and post something interesting, we would probably find them sitting at their computers in a mummified state, as said to have been the case with a German sailor found off the Phils awhile back.  So, just about any input is good.

Or maybe I should put it another way, I very much appreciate that fact that Mr. Lee takes the time to find and post articles or topics of interest.

 THANK YOU !!  Mr. Lee
