Why do all these things seem different in different forums?
In one, I'm a guest. In some I'm a "Crazed Tentacle?" All the points are gone. No biggy... Glow and sigs seem to still exist... but does anyone really know what's going on??? I REALLY dislike the "Crazed Tentacle" title... oh well... back to the bar :drink1:

Nobody panic. The new rpg feature will be installed shortly and Matt is working his buttocks off fixing all the kinks. :)

Yeah...dunno what's up with that...Dash also lost his and was complaining all night about it...so who knows...

Not me apparently...niether does Rhett for that matter...maybe when Matt gets on tomorrow he'll find the problem...until then tho...we'll have to live with no sig image limit and weirded out glowies...

Whoo hoo, I have gone from slightly above 0 points, to actaual 0 points. HA HA

When things dont go right at GB.com, you have to ask yourself, whats the world coming to.

Yaya = i'd like to point out matt's announcement

You mean I have to spam post like 300 299 more posts to get a friggin glow again???

[edit]
In all honesty, why do people now need 1250 posts when you could have had like under 300 posts to get 300 points and get glow before. The newbies are going to feel very inferior. It just seems like a LOT of posts for something so small.

Sherack Nhar

Yeah but unless I'm mistaken, 300 points bought you ONE glow color, whereas the 1250 posts will let you change it at will.

And weeee, mine works now :D:D

yes but after you initially bought it, it only cost 50 points to change it to another color.

The whole point of making you get 1250 posts before you get glow is to make you post! Of course if you spam your posts will be deleted (well that's what they SAY anyway) so Spamming is worthless. All you can do is post good posts until you get to 1250. The same thing goes for Custom Titles.

What is this RPG/Battle thing anyway? I've heard mods rave on and on and on about it, but what are the specifics?

Dude! I'm lost, I hope this is gonna be simple. . .
And. . .I dunno if anyone here can, but could someone take off the points : 0 under everyone's name. . .It looks kinda lame !

I agree :D They need to remove that Point stat... just about...NOW!!

pbguy1211
07-15-2003, 10:46 PM
Well... if they're installing some kind of new point system... why would they remove the points stat?

Sherack Nhar

It's not a new point system, it's an RPG/battle mod. Shannon linked to the thing a few posts above, here it is again:

You may or may not know that I resigned from an administrator position at LF over a year ago for personal reasons >_> Besides, I don't know enough about bulletin board programming and databases to do that kind of job (yet)! ;)
