If it does have (invisible) PR then is this boosted by making lots of posts to the forums beacuse every post has a link to your User Profile? Should we all be trying like crazy to post messages, however inconsequential?
If this was true then all those crazy neurotics who insist on talking about the update will find their site's PR considerably enhanced. Oh, and those who are still exasperated about the PR0 penalties - if they ever get that penalty lifted - will go up to PR7 just on the PR transfer from their contributions to Webmasterworld.

[edit reason] probably not a good idea to use othr members as examples [/edit]
Methinks the admins have thought about that little trick already :)
I have the following tags in my profile;
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX">
<META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE">
Maybe getting one of those turned off is a priveledge you get with more posts?

here is thread that discusses the real reasons for using your profile.
Sorry I had to change the address of profiles when we updated the site in june, but they were getting hammered by email bots. Since I changed that, and did the email obfuscation thing, they've just about gone away entirely.
Yes, it is 100 posts before the noindex falls off.

Although WebmasterWorld is no doubt a high PR7....you will never get any higher than it, nor will you gain PR quickly. I think in the general scheme of things you would have to make about a million posts to notice a higher PR, and by then you could have written an encyclopedia on your site anyway without filling up WebmasterWorld with non-quality posts ;)
Ohh yeah and either my toolbar is broke or there is no PR on the profile pages anyways. Not even Bretts!
As others have said, if you spent the time you're thinking of spending to make 100 posts on other things, you'll make more ground. And if you don't want to do that, try reading and posting in the threads that suggest some other equally important things such as anchor text!
