That's four times in a row, right? Congrats! ^^

Yes it is. Awesome! :D
Thanks!

Yeah I can see what you mean. I wasn't very motivated to look for a job last year either. My parents pay for almost everything I need and on top of that my summer holiday was only five weeks long anyway. That's way too short to go and waste it on doing stupid summer jobs imo.

Yeah, you need some time to relax every now and then. When I have holidays I have to study for examns (because I never manage to do so during the semester -.-), so I don't want to waste any time in a job that doesn't even pay too good.

I don't pay any tuition right now (which used to be 500 Euro but is now 350 Euro), there's the option to defer those. I have to pay back my debt once I earn more than 30k Euro a year. I don't know if there's a time limit, though...
Oh you'll probably have plenty of time then. I believe generally uni-people earn about 30k per year max when they just start working. So I suppose you'll still have a couple of years before you have to start paying back, and once you do you got a decent salary already.

Statistics say that people who study the same thing as I do earn an average of exactly 30k in their first year. XD

Also there's another problem (I have to get into greater detail for this one ^^): In Germany there's something called "Regelstudienzeit". It means that some smart people once said: Well, for this field of study you shouldn't need any longer than X semesters.
Lol, "smart people" as in: A bunch of nitwits who actually know jackshit about stuff that has anything to do with education? :p

That's exactly what I meant. ^^

Now the problem I have is, that the deferral for the tuition fees is only active until 2 semesters over the amount those smart people said I should need for my studies. So once I reach the 12th semester, I have to pay tuition fees and the semester fee. Which propably means, if I have to study this long, I have to go to my parents again to beg for more money.
Ah, so basically you already have a student loan, but once you cross those X amount of semesters you're gonna have to pay extra if you want to continue? That sucks =/

Yes it does. And I only found out a few weeks ago. It's somewhere in the fine print and someone pointed it out to me.

But the "funny" thing is, even when I had my student job, I still hadn't enough money to pay the tuition and the semester fee and I still had to go to my parents "begging" for more money. :/
But can't you just take a cheap student loan then? I suppose that if you go working in the summer, get some money from your parents and loan a bit you could gather enough money to make it for another year.

I really don't want to take another loan. I'm not too happy with the loan I already have (but I didn't wanted to sponge off my parents more than I already do) so yet another loan is out of the question for me.
Luckily I shouldn't take too long to finish my studies anyway. Only problem is, I really don't know where I should apply for a job if I graduate. ^^

I would be interested in a thread as I've already mentioned, but on second thoughts I guess it's better to wait until art reviews and responses are fully viewable and are added to the box where the flash and audio reviews are displayed.

Of course I'm sure there is a wanting need eventually for a list of who has the Top Art Reviews in line with Flash and Audio Reviews (not to mention to itch my curiosity). So I created a fairly accurate list of the Top 50 Art Reviewers.

Nice work - Perhaps it's not worth getting a list yet, until we get over 100 profiles found for the list. Once you've got past there, it might be worth putting it up to the top 100 list, to fit in with the Flash and Audio reviewers lists.

I'm not quite sure if it's worth creating a full thread about it; so I was wondering what you guys thought. Do you think it's worth being tracked like the Flash and Audio Reviews Threads or should it be shelved for the moment? By 'worth being tracked' I mean are you personally going to have some interest in it. :P

I have interest in it - I've got to beat MindChamber! I can certainly see me doing that over the next few weeks, since there are plenty of new arts out there for me to review :D

Yeah, sure, and whoever is voting on submissions isn't doing it for the ranks, but to help NG get rid of spammy flashes.
If this was true, we wouldn't have so many awful, awful flashes on the verge of being blammed (a score of 1.60 or something), but that still stay on the site, probably because of users who vote 5 on every submission just go get quick points.
If everyone actually watched them and voted based on that, they would have a score of 0.10...
Come on, how many users would be flagging reviews (and I mean regularly, not occasionally) if the whistle system wasn't implemented?
By the way, just out of curiosity, why didn't you include me in the "congrats to" list? :(

Yeah same with me, but I believe I'm on the high side for an engineering studies. Most engineers and researchers would probably earn a little lower on average, and arts/language studies generally don't earn that much either. I think some of the business and medical studies earn most in the first years. They'd probably go over that 30k, but for the rest 30k is a lot for most.

Lol, "smart people" as in: A bunch of nitwits who actually know jackshit about stuff that has anything to do with education? :p
That's exactly what I meant. ^^

Lol :p Yeah that's sometimes a problem here as well.

Probably some new people got in charge and they just want to make some changes. You know, to put their mark on something. But they don't really know what they're talking about and in couple of years they'll turn it back because it doesn't work.

But can't you just take a cheap student loan then? I suppose that if you go working in the summer, get some money from your parents and loan a bit you could gather enough money to make it for another year.

I suppose you could sent a letter to some major companies in your field. Otherwise I'm sure you could find something in papers and on the internet.

Now just because you lost it once before don't stop marking things that are abusive! You were probably just right on the border line and had one or two mistakes that brought you back down to gold. It's all about clearing stuff from the website and not about a shiny whistle. That's just a prize. :)

I thought you guys would enjoy this. It kind of reminds me of Chinagrounds... The Chinese site that our game is on changed the title of the game to, "Escape the Terrorist Room."

Timmy and I decided that the Chinese view American education as terrorism, therefor the dorm room was a terrorist room.

If you think about it more people would be flagging reviews. They could flag whatever they want without anything negative happening to their whistles. The whistle system actually produces a honest marking system since there is a punishment if you abusive it.

It's perfect the way it is.

By the way, I mark abusive reviews almost every single day. Some days I'll even go looking for them.

8.25 is really the cap for such rates. I think most of my loan averaged about 5.00 where the highest was 6.25 but still it's better than taking a loan from a bank where the rate are upwards of 15-22%.

Averaged only 15 hours a week in college? :p Last period I had 40 hours scheduled, which is pretty extreme even to our countries standards, but 20+ hours is normal here.

That's insane. The minimum for full time in the US for most colleges is 12 hours while the max is about 18 hours.

Thanks

I think people will be interested in such a list, but maybe wait with making the thread for a bit longer? It seems to me like the feature hasn't even been developed fully yet. I suppose admins will eventually put them under the Flash and Audio reviews under Newgrounds Stats and will show which review belongs to which submission.

That is true but there is no telling when they will get everything working. I think the major hurdle for Rob is that the Art Thumbnails are bigger than 46x46 so it won't fit in the Review boxes. Something like that could mean several more months of work.

Once they implemented that, it may become easier to update the stat. On top of that you're probably gonna find some new users soon, so if you would post the list right now you might have to make a lot of changes later.

Also that is true but it's not like it going to be this week or next that such a thread will be created. I was just curious would such a thread be wanted.Trust me, every time I search the Art Portal I spot someone who I haven't found before so it's far from complete, especially the bottom half. ;)

At 4/11/10 05:30 PM, Fro wrote: Yeah, thanks for the current list and I'd be very intrested in seeing one. Perhaps we'll just need to check around to make it somewhat more accurate. Maybe making a thread in the art forum to see how many reviews people have just for the sake of accuracy.

I poked around the users in the Art Forum Lounge, Art Portal Patrol Club, etc.; they really don't review much. I really not sure they will be interested in such a topic and not to mention that when you post a new topic you have to post a pic. :P

I have found that it's the artist themselves who do most of the heavy reviewing so I might have to dig some more there.

I've all but leaned that way. In reality the only two numbers I need are displayed on the user's review page, Art Reviews and w/ Response, I really don't need it on the main page or need to dig through the actual reviews.

Currently I have found 110 users who have 60+ Art Reviews. The 100th user has 68 Reviews. I'm not quite sure how many profiles I have to look at for this list to be statistically significant but I have been through about 2400 of them in the past three days.

I have interest in it - I've got to beat MindChamber! I can certainly see me doing that over the next few weeks, since there are plenty of new arts out there for me to review :D

Yeah, sure, and whoever is voting on submissions isn't doing it for the ranks, but to help NG get rid of spammy flashes.

The points are just some sort of incentive to vote. Also, you can also vote to save flashes. ;)
Also, if I wouldn't enjoy watching and voting on flashes I wouldn't still be active in B/Ping, as I've already reached the last rank.

If this was true, we wouldn't have so many awful, awful flashes on the verge of being blammed (a score of 1.60 or something), but that still stay on the site, probably because of users who vote 5 on every submission just go get quick points.

A paragraph earlier it was "whoever is voting" now it's "some users". I don't vote 5 on everything. I have over 14k blams, and there are days where I get more blams than saves.

Come on, how many users would be flagging reviews (and I mean regularly, not occasionally) if the whistle system wasn't implemented?

The whistle is an incentive to flag, sure. But we can't see how many whistle points we have, we don't know how many succesfully flagged reviews and flashes it needs to level up your whistle. Why do you think the system is that way? So we can't brag about our whistle points, but to flag mostly to get rid of abusive reviews/flashes.

I've got my deity whistle quite some time ago (must have been at least over two years ago...) and I still flag abusive reviews when I see them.

By the way, just out of curiosity, why didn't you include me in the "congrats to" list? :(

Me? I stopped doing lists a while ago. You propably mean Coop. You should check who you are quoting. :P

But can't you just take a cheap student loan then? I suppose that if you go working in the summer, get some money from your parents and loan a bit you could gather enough money to make it for another year.
I really don't want to take another loan. I'm not too happy with the loan I already have (but I didn't wanted to sponge off my parents more than I already do) so yet another loan is out of the question for me.
Luckily I shouldn't take too long to finish my studies anyway. Only problem is, I really don't know where I should apply for a job if I graduate. ^^
I suppose you could sent a letter to some major companies in your field. Otherwise I'm sure you could find something in papers and on the internet.

Yeah, I can do that. But I just can't imagine what my workday will be like. XD

Hmm, big question here.

The question of "is there only going to be one level 60, just like level 30 used to be before the re-design" was never answered (correct me if I'm wrong).

The level page says "38,640 / ???", which leads to believe that there might only be one level 60 (unless there's a bunch of people tied at the top), or not. Just by the drawing it would make sense there's only one level 60... as it looks like the master of the world or whatever...

Well, the highest ranked person in experience just recently got level 59, and level 60 is close, with around 4 months to go.

Are you guys ready to see the experience requirement for the next level to raise everytime the level 60 user deposits, therefore making the last 10 levels almost impossible to reach if you aren't around level 45 already?

:)

Not impossible, just time consuming. And a fixed amount of time if you deposit regularly.

Now that's the first announced achievement of this kind, though I know that some people have more responses than me (Haggard; XwaynecoltX for example)

Yeah, sure, and whoever is voting on submissions isn't doing it for the ranks, but to help NG get rid of spammy flashes.

The ranks are nice, but I've never done it for them - I've done it for the fact that I want to protect NG from waves of shite.

If this was true, we wouldn't have so many awful, awful flashes on the verge of being blammed (a score of 1.60 or something), but that still stay on the site, probably because of users who vote 5 on every submission just go get quick points.

Your evidence is circumstantial at best. Some people use proxies and other nefarious methods to get their pieces through.

If everyone actually watched them and voted based on that, they would have a score of 0.10...

Yeah, we know.

Come on, how many users would be flagging reviews (and I mean regularly, not occasionally) if the whistle system wasn't implemented?

Since I'm the most qualified to answer this, quite a few - we haven't seen much of an increase in the number of flagged reviews since the days when people were trying to be the only Deity user and the only Gold user.

Currently I have found 110 users who have 60+ Art Reviews. The 100th user has 68 Reviews. I'm not quite sure how many profiles I have to look at for this list to be statistically significant but I have been through about 2400 of them in the past three days.

Well, for my lists, I've got about 200-250 for the top 150 lists and about 170 for the Review Responses list.

I have interest in it - I've got to beat MindChamber! I can certainly see me doing that over the next few weeks, since there are plenty of new arts out there for me to review :D
Excellent. I will update in a week with the new users I have found. I think you stand at #19, at the moment.

Not bad - I'll keep writing reviews and climbing the list, but I lost some yesterday :(

As far as I'm aware, it's not going to happen - we will see a number of Level 60 users, without the level requirement increasing.

That was discussed when they got as far as the redesign, but I will admit, it was ambiguous. I'm leaning away from the bad old days.

My question is: why do you even keep flagging after Deity since you can risk you whistle?

Also, I finally achieved Sergeant Major, and of course this means 9500+b/p, and my voting power is quickly rising towards 9 (8.92 ATM, will be 9+ as soon as I level or rank up)

Some people actually flag for the good of the site and not just some shiney new whistle. This is highly unlikely, but it was genius of Tom Fulp to add all these stats to make sure he doesn't have to upkeep the site.

Oh hi there, folks. No time to post catchups in here tonight.... though I did the Revolution catchup on Sunday and the EGRL catchup on Monday, so that's nice and all... and I WILL get around to a re-re-catchup in here soon enough (this week, hopefully)...

BUT anyway, in the meantime... I did just hit a landmark postcount, which happens about once a year for me these days with the rate I'm posting at... so hey, why not.

12,000 big (I'd put my average post length up against anyone's, dagnabit!) ones... too bad I can't cash them in for some coinage. ;_;

If you review the things that I submitted (I'm coed on like 40+ submissions so you have to pick and choose) I'll be sure to respond to each and every one. :)

Maybe I will :) But I've been going a little slow with reviewing lately. I just happened to wind up near 200 responses, so I decided to get it over with. Thanks for the tip though. Maybe I'll get to yours once I finished with Bahamuts.

8.25 is really the cap for such rates. I think most of my loan averaged about 5.00 where the highest was 6.25 but still it's better than taking a loan from a bank where the rate are upwards of 15-22%.

15-22% sounds like a whole lot to me. There are constantly commercials on TV here of companies which offer loans of 6-11%. I think 11% are the banks, so that's much cheaper than in your country. I guess those high rates are one of the reasons why so many people are in financial trouble in your country, right?

Averaged only 15 hours a week in college? :p Last period I had 40 hours scheduled, which is pretty extreme even to our countries standards, but 20+ hours is normal here.
That's insane. The minimum for full time in the US for most colleges is 12 hours while the max is about 18 hours.

For full time the max is 18 hours? :o

What the hell. I suppose you get a shitload of homework then. Either that, or you're expected to have a part-time job and such along with it. I can't imagine you guys may go to college for 18 hours and then sit on your ass for the rest of the week.

It seems to me like the feature hasn't even been developed fully yet. I suppose admins will eventually put them under the Flash and Audio reviews under Newgrounds Stats and will show which review belongs to which submission.
That is true but there is no telling when they will get everything working. I think the major hurdle for Rob is that the Art Thumbnails are bigger than 46x46 so it won't fit in the Review boxes. Something like that could mean several more months of work.

Could be. That wouldn't seem to hard to solve to me, but I don't know much about it.

Once they implemented that, it may become easier to update the stat. On top of that you're probably gonna find some new users soon, so if you would post the list right now you might have to make a lot of changes later.
Also that is true but it's not like it going to be this week or next that such a thread will be created. I was just curious would such a thread be wanted.Trust me, every time I search the Art Portal I spot someone who I haven't found before so it's far from complete, especially the bottom half. ;)

Oh alright. Well take your time then. I think Fro also had a good idea by saying that making a topic in the Art Forum first might be handy. I'm sure people there know much more about the users in the Art Portal than we do.

I'm glad I didn't have the money to buy F3 when it came out. By the time I had the money the GOTY was already out and I got it for about 35 Pounds (UK Import).

I saw it on sale for £13.50 and I thought "Hey, that's a good price!" so I bought it. Now I wish I waited for the GOTY edition. Then again, when I get to playing Fallout 3, I'll have more than enough to do on it without the extras.

I can only name you. :P ICQ is so ancient.
I'm too lazy to count all the contacts I have in my ICQ list. :P
I guess it's more than 50, about 15 users are online regularly. The rest doesn't seem to use ICQ anymore (or they changed their account for whatever reason).

My guess is they used MSN or AIM instead of the ancient ICQ.

I'm sure we won't see the EXP requirements increase ever again. I mean, would they completely change the level system around only to have it increasing once again 3 years after the redesign? However, if it does go up when Pimp's level 60, then it's a good thing I'll be level 45 just before he reaches the final level.

I leaning towards that I won't change considering at the moment I would take a user 10.6 Years to reach Level 60 as is. You really don't want to disenfranchise user to stop depositing for the sake of it being impossible to level up because it will stop one draw to the site; earning experience, levels.

I still think it will be constant just like the B/P Ranks when you reach EGSC but will see...

Ha, that is true.

Not bad - I'll keep writing reviews and climbing the list, but I lost some yesterday :(

Do you think if a user gets de-scouted the reviews are not counted or is it for only deleted works that it will drop?

15-22% sounds like a whole lot to me. There are constantly commercials on TV here of companies which offer loans of 6-11%. I think 11% are the banks, so that's much cheaper than in your country. I guess those high rates are one of the reasons why so many people are in financial trouble in your country, right?

In part. Primarily it was due to giving credit to people who creditor knew they were unable to pay back. Those creditors earn not only interest from those people but things like late fees and fees of the same sort which kept people from paying the principle of the loan.

What the hell. I suppose you get a shitload of homework then. Either that, or you're expected to have a part-time job and such along with it. I can't imagine you guys may go to college for 18 hours and then sit on your ass for the rest of the week.

Most of my courses homework was optional since Exams have to be a certain percentage of your grade, especially the Final which was mandated to be a minimum of 30% of your grade. Of course for certain courses you have projects to do or essays to write which might be considered an exam grade but as far as homework in a traditional sense I wouldn't say so.

There is so much free time you can see how many students fall in to a gap of not studying, getting too preoccupied with a part time job and ending up dropping out.

Could be. That wouldn't seem to hard to solve to me, but I don't know much about it.

Maybe he has something figured out or he might just required Art users to submit a 46x46 icon from now on.

Oh alright. Well take your time then. I think Fro also had a good idea by saying that making a topic in the Art Forum first might be handy. I'm sure people there know much more about the users in the Art Portal than we do.

Yeah I'll bug them some time later this week. I wish there were some Wi/Hters who are active in the Art Portal. Hmmm...

Yeah I was thinking about that. When you think about it, the only new items that you can quantify that has been added to profiles in the past few years have been Art Reviews, Medal Points, and Audio Reviews. It might seem a lot of review threads but there is a lot of things you can review on this site.

Just wait for the Lit Portal and that review system too, then it will be a lot. :P

Just like the others I don't think the scaling will come back. All the work of adding new levels would be pointless if the levels would scale again. I guess they will introduce some more levels once a few users have reached level 60.

Resits are in September/October most of the time. But I know what you mean. It's hard to study for exams if the weather is too good. ^^
That's a much better time imo. At least you already got back into studying then.

Well, the next semester starts after the resits are over. So it's even harder to get back into studying. ^^

I suppose you could sent a letter to some major companies in your field. Otherwise I'm sure you could find something in papers and on the internet.
Yeah, I can do that. But I just can't imagine what my workday will be like. XD
Haha me neither. You're doing some engineering studies as well right? I don't know. I'm guessing it's gonna be sitting behind a computer, writing reports and such almost all day long.

Yeah, business informatics. I think I will try to find a job that has a bit more to do with informatics rather than a job that focusses on the business part of my studies.

HA!
I'm glad I didn't have the money to buy F3 when it came out. By the time I had the money the GOTY was already out and I got it for about 35 Pounds (UK Import).
I saw it on sale for £13.50 and I thought "Hey, that's a good price!" so I bought it. Now I wish I waited for the GOTY edition. Then again, when I get to playing Fallout 3, I'll have more than enough to do on it without the extras.

Yeah, I don't even have the time to play the normal content right now. Because I finally got the restoration pack for Fallout 2 from KillAp to work and I have to play that first. XD

I can only name you. :P ICQ is so ancient.
I'm too lazy to count all the contacts I have in my ICQ list. :P
I guess it's more than 50, about 15 users are online regularly. The rest doesn't seem to use ICQ anymore (or they changed their account for whatever reason).
My guess is they used MSN or AIM instead of the ancient ICQ.

So, what makes MSN/AIM more advanced than ICQ then?
This is a serious question, because I really don't know. Never used the AIM or MSN clients. Only had ICQ and then switched to Pidgin because I was sick of all the ads that the ICQ client had.
And when I swichted to Pidgin I also took advantage of the fact that I could also connect to MSN and AIM with it and created accounts there. ^^
