Imagine if Newgrounds deleted all of it's user-based stat collection. Exp. points, BP/Level icons, and Shiny Badges...etc.

How do you think Newgrounds addicts would react?

like this maybe?

They'd cry, and send many PMs to Tom. Start lots of threads, make many death threats.
You know, the usual.

We would still have post count, bitch!

As long as there's something you can increment, people will be happy. Even if all we had was the 'posts per day', I bet there would be people that try to max that out.

It would be fucking amazing. It's exactly what this site would need. Crybabies everywhere. Including myself. Five years of depositing down the shitter.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

Well, since I am no Newgrounds addict or a stat whore, this wouldn't affect me much. I post when I feel like posting, review when I feel compelled to review, and rate when I feel like rating. I'm actually kind of a crappy NG member in this sense.

I'm pretty lazy when it comes to maintaining a good atmosphere at Newgrounds.

Ahh...

Meh, it would mainly suck because everyone would have the same amount of experience, and there would be a good 1,000 people tie who deposit every day.

Probably, yes. Well, I think a bunch of people would get pretty upset about it. After all, all those different ways to gather stats and getting shiny icons as a result is what makes Newgrounds attractive for some users and is one of the reasons that they visit the site daily. I am looking forward to the new level icons.

I would have an almighty huff and I'd probably ban you for 30 days just for suggesting it.

But the moral of the story is, I'd get over it.

*And is the only reason that many visit this site daily. :D

Caring aboot the life and experiences of others in the world obviously comes much further down the line for many. +1 posts abound and people repeat opinions due to not reading threads - guilty and hypocritical myself if you think aboot it.

I'm not in all this for the stats though. The forums are where it's at and there are plenty of interesting people on here, spanning many backgrounds and cultures, all having one interest in common yada yada big speech yada bluh. Point is that everybody here is a bloody character, monotone or deep, likable or not. You're interesting and exciting to converse with.
