Heh. Well, I hadn't mentioned it since early December, and you haven't exactly been super-idle what with NG Total Listing concerns and all the RG adminning and all, so... I thought I might end up needing to e-mail you a reminder, but... nope, no need for that. BOOM ZAP POW!
I'm 2/3 of the way to my next rank-up. Hopefully I'll be a First Lieutenant before the next update, and I'll be knocking on #300's door.
Knock knock knockin' on BonusWhore.... ohhhhh woah... er... wait, that's not right.

Thanks to my 0.03 increase, I didn't lose any rank this week.
Well, 245 people were over Bonus, so it ain't THAT special. #;-}> Anywho, have fun with teh jockeying for rank position.
heh, don't count on it too much. :)
You never know. No one expected sabcat to make a profile... and then boom, he did. Stranger things have happened.
Jesus. Chunky is #201? Back when I was depositing for that account for Bedn (9-10 months ago), Chunky was like #70 or so on this list. Wowza.He was stuck at 12600 exp pts for a long while and then he decided to deposit once before going back to his inactive state.
mmmm? Is there a special story concerning that account? There are a lot of rumors going on about some old accounts. heh, I know nothing about most of the old users that used to be popular and more active.
Bedn claimed that Chunky gave him his account (others have speculated that Bedn stole it). Either way, Bedn asked me to deposit for it almost a year ago, and I did for a month or two. Then Bedn started fooling around with it on the BBS and changed the password (after I'd gotten it up from level 23 to THE HOLY LEVEL 24, I might add)... so, there ya go. A few weeks later, the name of the account changed to ChunkyMan and a profile message popped up that he didn't know what had gone on with his account and yadda yadda yadda, which certainly made it seem like Bedn may have indeed stolen it. Eh, wotevah. I have no idea if the current password-holder of that account is the original account-maker or not. It ain't my concern now, and it never was.
bleh, I think that it's better than nobody deposits for an inactive user, especially if he never comes back. It gives the chance to another user who is still active to gain a few ranks because he's still dedicated. Depositing for someone else is lame because the other user didn't really earn these pts. I could keep ranting about that subject during the whole week but I think that's enough for this moment.
Well, there's nothing wrong with someone depositing for a user who's just away for a weekend or a week or something, right? But yes, it is kinda weird to deposit for people who never end up coming back. But plenty of accounts get given away to other people. I know of one account that's been held by at least 5 people (if not more), so... is it wrong for the new owner to deposit and build his exp upon the exp someone else (or someoneS else) collected? Maybe, maybe not. Morally vs. rules-wise... though... is a separate issue. There's nothing in the rules about it, so it's just the topic for an ethical debate, I suppose.
HAR HAR! and one week later? HAR HAR AGAIN!
Pretty much. And I really wanted to post mid-week this time. Well, I did... but just with my alt. Twice. ;_;

You got it.
SUPER congrats to Denvish on his +0.48 EGG rankup and to both him AND Syme for hitting 10.00 VP.Yes, it feels nice to be over 10
Woot woot! Tons of people moving on up to the 10 range lately. Today's update shall be fun to post for that reason... among others.
053.) 10.16 +0.48 Denvish +24Wheeee!

Then you clearly didn't perform enough VP calculations or somethin'. #;-}>

I hope you're not laughing that she skipped straight from 9.99 to 10.01 like she didn't want to. ;_;
And damnit, man, what's with all this "no spaces between the quote and the reply" stuff? I hope you don't make a habit of consistently using that posting style. O_o
Gonna be dropping a few places before my final rankup, which is at least a month away - and after that, reckon I'm going to be stuck in the 40-50 range somewhere, until some other higher level dudes decide to rankup. Top 50 VP is pretty cool though, considering my level.
Nope, nothing wrong with a good comfy top 40-50 range spot for the long term.
It's kinda sad that "considering [your] level" can be used to describe level 15 now, though. When I had level 15... it was good for a top 25 berth at EGSC. My how times have changed... and MY... how crowded it has become in the top 50/10.00+ area of the list, eh?
