Same here. All it does is promote spamming (although I would like to hit 10,000 posts before I resign the account to deposits).

Yes exactly. Posting about post milestones is giving yourself another post towards the next that you will also post about, making it spam.

Neither did I, but it was still annoying, so I'm glad those days are over. :)

It was irritating, yes. I suspect, however, that once Pimp (or somebody else if he gives up) reaches level 60, we might be seeing another age of sliding level requirements. Who knows, though? Tom might have decided that enough is enough and the levels will stay static even after Pimp reaches level 60. *Crosses fingers*

Interesting. The thing is, you can't ignore it when someone reaches 10,000 posts - you HAVE to congratulate them. I thought that maybe we should only congratulate for the 10k then, but that would still promote spamming, perhaps even moreso as there's a higher target to reach, so we might as well just choose the lesser of two evils and congratulate for each 1,000.

Hmm, it's something, but I don't think it's an achievement personally. Maybe the light aura is going to your head? =P

Nah. I did mention in this thread about when I got 500 posts and I think 500 is acceptable. It's better than bullshit like 400 blams or 300 B/P.

But 10000 is still a special number. *remembers when he got 10k posts*

I doubt it's going to happen again - the sliding requirements were gotten rid of for a reason.

Have I been missing something? Unless the lounge has been flooded with tons of announcements along the lines of "I reached X posts", why is this even an issue?

And 1337, 13337, 31337 and so on. And things like 12345 or 54321. And probably more. :P

And a good reason at that. The gap between levels was getting ridiculous, and the higher you got, the worse it was. It does, however, seem to imply in the FAQ that sliding level requirements will return:

"Levels 1 through 8 are static in that their level requirements and range remain fixed; each is 50 experience points apart. Levels 9 through 60 expand to even out the experience point differential between those levels. Because they change, their requirements and range cannot be accurately given. Levels serve no purpose except to increase the voting power in the Flash Portal and to indicate amount of experience. For this reason a higher level often commands a certain amount of respect.

Rumors that there can be only one Level 60 user are untrue. There can be any number of users at the highest level provided they all have an equal amount of experience points."

Maybe they've just neglected to change it, though. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Have I been missing something? Unless the lounge has been flooded with tons of announcements along the lines of "I reached X posts", why is this even an issue?

It's not - we're not going to stop congratulating for posting achievements. There just seems to be a slight concern that congratulating users for getting a large amount of posts sends out the message that we advocate spamming and +1 posting on the BBS, which we obviously don't.

And 1337, 13337, 31337 and so on. And things like 12345 or 54321. And probably more. :P

Indeed, I couldn't be bothered to put them all down though, so I just put down the more obvious ones =)

SHANUS' NON ACHIEVEMENTS NAME & SHAME LIST:

TheRevive - 100 posts is not an achievement as it's quite easy to get and takes no time what so ever. We count major numbers, like 1000s, quarters of 10000, etc. Also duplicate numbers, 666, 2222 ect, but only 500 & 666 posts are counted as an achievement before you reach 1000 posts.

shadowchaotailsevil3 - Not an achievement, read the previous post

Bertn - I see nothing special about this number.... read my comment on TheRevive's "achievement" & you'll understand

BIGmamaKATIE - I know you gave an excuse, but I'm a protection whore too, don't see me post shitty numbers, achievements are standardized for everyone, no exceptions, well there's some, but not that :P

KIRBYLINK - You know you're just wrong so just wise up. Only post numbers of significance

GermanZ - Sorry man, gotta put ya one this, but anything under level 10 isn't counted as an achievement, because of the vast majority of NGers with those levels. Once you hit 10 or above its fair gain :D

Joeyag - 400 Blams is not a significant number, so just wait until you reach one

viceman - It's not, but at least you were wary, just read my above comment, for details on the actual numbers.
