I've had a few people ask me why we stopped doing the "posts of the week" the past two weeks. The main reason is because it's extremely hard for me to go through all of the posts that are out there and pick the "best." It's easier when all of the staff and mods are helping with it -- but even then, we've got so much going on each day, we all forget. So, I've decided to retire this for the time being ... I will be bringing it back once the new AP.net layout launches (3-5 months probably). The new website will allow me to run a few back-end queries and pull the most interacted with/liked/disliked posts on the website for the week, and then be able to use that data to populate our...

Figure I can put together an entire posts of the week feature before lunch. I mean, at the moment I'm just posting stupid shit on tumblr, and re-capping all of the funny, weird, and odd around the website from the last week seems like a much better use of my time. Let's see what we've got this week ... had to get some help from all of the staff this week. And if I could nominate Drew's quote on Twitter, I think that deserves some love as well. If you click on the little arrow thingy next to the username, you'll be able to go see the post in the thread it originated in ... context, sometimes, helps.

Sarcasm thick: I wonder what thread is going to have the most posts of the...

If the AP.net office was anything besides me at a desk, staring at three computer screens at once -- I'm pretty certain we would all be having a beer on this Friday afternoon. I'm positive we'd be having the kind of debates we have weekly over email. I'd pull rank and decide that everyone must listen/dance to Penguin Prison ... and we'd all vote on what makes this week's "posts of the week" list. However, at the moment it's just me and the emails back and forth with the rest of the country. Not as fun ... but I can still put together a posts of the week feature and all that. If you click on the little arrow thingy next to the username, you'll be able to go see the post in the...

TGIF. Thankfully it's Friday, and that means it's time to look at the nominees for best posts of the week. I saw last week someone mention the idea about a full on awards show where the posters on these lists the most, at the end of the year, getting some kind of trophy/prize. I'm all about that come next December. This week had a lot of nominations, quite a few funny moments (that definitely play better in context with the thread) - and this was, for me at least, an extremely fun week on the website. Just like last week - I had staff help me compile the posts we found to be worthy of inclusion. Unfortunately, I didn't see anything worthy of worst post of the week. Well, there...

Last week we tried out a new Friday featurette called "posts of the week" (for those that missed it - it's exactly what it sounds like) - and everyone seemed to really like it. So, this week we are bringing it back. This week was full of funny posts, down right insane posts, and some shit I couldn't even follow. Just like last week - I had staff help me compile the posts we found to be worthy of inclusion. We also had a post that got nominated for "worst post of the week" - and we included that in here as well. Next week we'll do our best to keep track of those too. Oh, and hopefully make better note of all the brilliant comments made in the forums as well (not sure if I can...

As of right now there are over 17 million posts on this website. We're actually really close to 18 million now that I look at it. We like to talk, a lot. And while not all of them are gems ... there are some pretty hilarious and well said things on the website during the week. Today, I want to try out a new column where I highlight the "best posts of the week." There is absolutely no way I am going to be able to go through every single post on a weekly basis; however, with the help of staff - we've worked on compiling our favorites that we've seen. Now that the feature is in place, we'll hopefully do a better job making note of these when we see them throughout the week. And while...
