Forum Maintenance 12/10

Post by Tenacious B » October 12, 2004, 4:14 pm

firstly, hello everyone please make yourselves comfortable this won't take long.

ok. for general housecleaning in the forum, i will be adding a new category for funny threads that aren't so shit they need to go in chris' anus. stuff like mark's bike thread, which is pretty funny and deserves to be seen by people who don't dare go into the anus.

this category needs a name, i am taking suggestions here.

second, i will be deleting the LOGD forum. no one uses it anymore, and besides that i will be deleting the LOGD game from the server at the end of week. this is mainly because no one plays it, which is also mainly because it wasn't much fun.

thoughts on the above will be most welcome.

finally, the points comepetition will end on friday. remember, this time round it is the person who earned the most points as well as the person who donated the most points, so you can win either way.

although i must say it seems as if chris has both categories tied up.

however, i must point out that i will not be counting donations due to betting or just random giveaways. i can see what donations are given for, so chris getting 10 000 points for a won bet will not count.

that is all.



fuck you guys you don't know me

I think betting makes the points more fun and as i have stated on numerous occasions i believe the points should represent yen or the zim dollar.

And you can try and stop us but if you ban betting we will just go underground. You won't even know it is happening it just will happen. Money will just appear and disappear like in match fixing.

I think that we should keep logd as i believe that timmy uses it quite often and that if you hadlistened to any of my suggestions it would have been more fun. Monsters like old breasts and weapons like the apartheid regime would have added that SA content and spiced it up a bit. Having said that i don't think i will ever play Logd again so do what you will.

I think we should have competitions to win points like best photoshop pic of the week gets 10 000 points or best joke of the week or funniest post of the week or whatever.

Also i think we should get more than 25 points for posting as this is a putrid and pathetic amount.

Finally if one were underhanded and shady in ones thinking one may just start a million threads each earning 100 points thereby securing oneself 1 billion points. Just a thought.

Thank you and good day.

Actually you would only secure yourself 100 million. A billion is a 1000 million.


Call the forum thingy:

This is Funny Shit

That is all :)

it really doesn't fucking make a difference, chris. surely you're not saying that if the points were actually make-believe yen you would be happier? because that<b>[I AM TOO STUPID TO USE AN APOSTROPHE]</b>s just weird, and a little sad.

i'm not stopping you bet. you can bet as much as you want. i may even bet. but points won in bets won't count towards the weekly competition, dig?

even if i had made those changes (which would have been a lot of effort), the lack of lays made you stop playing. since i couldn't code lays in, and even the guys who made the game laughed at the suggestion, lays just had to stay out. you guys don't play anymore, tim hasn't been online forever, and its taking up database and disk space. it's going.

great idea. please make a thread about how we could do it and possible ideas. i expect you to moderate most competitions.
Ceek wrote:Also i think we should get more than 25 points for posting as this is a putrid and pathetic amount.


i don't really understand. we all get the same amount. its not towards some higher goal. so what if we get 25 points, or 2.5 points, or 250 points? unless you can show me some mathematical evidence that the current points systems in unfair/useless.

well, if they were GOOD threads, then yes, you would earn lots of points. you see, that<b>[I AM TOO STUPID TO USE AN APOSTROPHE]</b>s the idea of points, to encourage good threads. however, if they were shit threads, moderators would just delete them, and you would lose all the points for those threads. so i don't really see your point.

One does not lose points when moderator delete threads. i just tested it.

25 points is useless and insignficant in terms of the 30 000 for example that you have mind you i suppose if there were more points for posts then you would have more points still so you make a good point there.

Betting should count towards the comp as it makes it more fun and changes things around a bit.

Yes i would like it more if we had imaginary yen or Zim dollaz. Otherwise if the points were colled something fun and original like OddPoints or something that would be better.



Good call on the calculation Harris - damn engineers (notice how matt and i just accepted the calculation) and to correct my earlier statement if you made 10million threads you would have a billion points.

no but you as a mod get the ability to remove however many points you want. so if the guy makes 10 shit threads and gets 1000 points, then you just delete the threads, remove 1000 points from him, and then another 500 for being a fuck.

well we need to reach an agreement here. i'm happy with the current system, but if someone can convince me, go ahead.

not only will only some people use it, how will it "change things around"? sorry, but i still feel that although you can use points as you want them, the forum comp will only count earned and donated points.

while i am partial to oddpoints, i still feel its not such a huge problem. once again, i am open to being convinced.

I think i am the only one who cares so therefore i win by a majority of 1-0 on all counts. Maybe we could have a thread dedicated to finding the perfect name for the oddville points?

Well as you and i are the only peps who can assign points we therefore basically control the whole outcome of the competition each time. We cannot control who wins the bets and thus it "changes things around a bit". Especially as nobody really donates points anyway (except me, hein, neil maybe some others).

well they can't just be called points. the forum categories are all new and shiny (nicely done, by the way), and points need a new name, too. um...

goddamn - we got new emoticons too! :thumbsup:

Call them warren's sick sexual fetishes in a condom, that way whenever someone gets points it will say, Congratulations you got 25 warren's sick sexual fetishes in a condom for that post.

By the way I have noticed my prediliction for this form of humour and I don't care, in fact I like it.
