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.

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.

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.

Good question . . .

Let's see what the others think about it. I just think it'll be silly having eight different threads for reviewing stats (or nine if you made a total along with it) to cover reviews and responses for each department.

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.

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.

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?

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...

At 4/13/10 03:25 AM, Coop83 wrote: But everyone knows that liljim is Poopy.

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.

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. ^^

I'll have to get Fallout 1 and 2 from Steam at some point.

My guess is they used MSN or AIM instead of the ancient ICQ.
So, what makes MSN/AIM more advanced than ICQ then?

Doesn't ICQ only use numbers for their names? MSN and AIM have NAMES! Both have many useful features which I doubt ICQ even have, unless it's been updated all this time.

Congrats to:

WeirdAlthe3rd: 9,000 Saves
Coop83: 48,000 Saves

As for myself, I just made Corporal (4K B/P), and I'm in the top 12,345 for experience. I hung back on depositing early this morning hoping I would drop to exactly 12,345, which would have been phenomenally cool, but unfortunately it didn't happen. Onward and Upward!


Deploy the... it's a yellow button... it's usually flashing... it makes the engines go... whoosh!

Please help fund my horror novel. I'll love you forever.

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'll have to get Fallout 1 and 2 from Steam at some point.

STEAM IS TH E PLA- wait, we had that already.
Sad thing is that yesterday the restoration pack didn't work. I'll give it one more try if it doesn't work again, screw the restoration pack. >:(

But, coming back to the "servers shutting down"-discussion: Today is the last day that you can play online with the XBOX, starting tomorrow Microsoft will no longer support it.

My guess is they used MSN or AIM instead of the ancient ICQ.
So, what makes MSN/AIM more advanced than ICQ then?
Doesn't ICQ only use numbers for their names? MSN and AIM have NAMES! Both have many useful features which I doubt ICQ even have, unless it's been updated all this time.

I can log in with either my ICQ number my email. Also, of course you have names in ICQ. Mine is - surprisingly enough - Haggard. :P

Which features are you talking about? To my knowledge ICQ supports chat rooms (you can invite multiple users into it) and of course chatting between two users. Which are about the only things a client should support, imo. ^^

Great, applied terrorism 101 :P

Actually.... I was telling you what it was translated into off of memory from what the programmer told me. I translated it myself and even better yet... it translates into, "Live Version of the Terrorist to Escape the Room."

Timmy and I decided that the Chinese view American education as terrorism, therefor the dorm room was a terrorist room.
Hmm, that's certainly a different point of view.

Long story short, Nick is actually considered a terrorist in Hong Kong from some internet nonsense from years ago in college. We assume the game was titled that way because of the plane flying into a building though. :P

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.

Yeah I've heard something like that. There was also this South Park episode about it, which explained it nicely :p

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.

Most exams here are just 100% of your grade :p You either pass or fail the subject based on that one exam, no exceptions. Projects are usually separated from the courses, but they're not so hard to pass. They're just a lot of work.

I'm not sure which system I'd prefer. Yours sounds more relaxing because if you got a good grade for that 70% already you won't even have to bother with the exam.

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.

Yeah I guess that is to be expected. No wonder the American education system has such a bad reputation ;) I think in most countries in Europe they always try to give us as much to do as possible. Although the drop-out rate is still high at some studies.

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

Wait, so your year officially starts after those resits in September/October? Around here its usually: Year starts around 1st of September, resits the week before.

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.

Oh that's not really engineering is it? Sounds more like ... economics mixed with computer programming. Something like that. Is that right?

Well, we study in semesters here, one semester (no surprises) lasts for half a year. The summer semester usually is from April to July and the winter semester lasts from October to February.
Exams are always at the end of the semester, the resits start about one month after the semester ended and if you are really unlucky (like me last semester) the last exam is only a few days before the next semester starts.

Oh yeah, I got mixed up a bit there. But informatics isn't all about programming. :P
It's more about "how does a computer work" (and it goes into the deepest details there, luckily I don't have to do that for my studies), about safety in general, safety in networks, safety in distributed systems, distributed systems in general, databases, human-computer-interactions, etc...
Only a VERY small part is programming.

So, my study field is more about "How to connect the business world with the computer world", as in both worlds people speak different languages, and more often than not they simply don't understand each other. ^^
