Listening to:

Candlemass - Psalms For the Dead

Congrats to:

Coop - 1,200 audio reviews
Hacsev - Level 38
Jolly - Level 32
Nijsse - 10,000 medals. Fucking nice job!

There we go, now my milestone policies are valid. :P

Thanks to:

Coop. I lol'd.

I also blame the creator for putting the price to high, most indie web shows do it for free, what makes this special? I'm going to say as well that it just doesn't interest me, I don't want to see a live action NG show.

I'd love to donate to this, I really do but the way Kickstarter has gone for some projects, I'm just not confident with funding for many projects. I've already donated to the Double Fine Adventure Game and I'd rather see that completed first before I donate to anything else. At least with them it's dead certain they will fulfil their promise. Having a lower budget would have helped as well just so they can work on something smaller and then be able to aim for bigger later on.

Horny furries existed in the 90s.

I know, but this is an old argument. I could understand if you weren't congratulating me and you were making a list, but you're not making the lists, so why the beef?

Guess again. ;)

Not all, I have shot them down a few times after you went beyond 100k. I don't see why top 2,000 for EXP has no significance. That was originally the requirement to get on the old top 2,000 EXP updates. Infact, this thread has welcomed top 10,000 EXP in the past and it's fair since it takes at least a single year just to get there. That saying, I'd only go as far as top 3,000 for milestone counting.
I was never congratulated for the top 2,000 Experienced. Only 1,000 and every hundred thereafter. I know it's harder these days for people to get there, because of old farts like me constantly raising the bar, but that's beside the point.

Whoever thought top 2,000 EXP was nothing worth posting must have been an idiot. I've had even less significant milestones congratulated here, even though that was when the standards weren't set in stone like they are now.

Surely you have at least something.
Um... how about "don't stick your dick in a psycho"?

I'll just say I'll take the advice just so I don't hear the horrors of that.

Might as well go back to Ockeroid's Kickstarter parody.
lol. We could try begging money off the streets of London...

Best of luck down there then.

Well shit, that Kickstarter has got around 5,000 in the last 24 hours, fucking NG proving me wrong. In other news, I haven't found out my final grade yet but I have finished my college course with pass, I hope to found out soon if I have higher.

I more or less finished my diploma thesis today. I may have to proof read (sort of) and check the layout for mistakes. But I think I can hand it in on Monday.

Nowhere.
Imagine a Resident Evil, where the Zombies don't bleed, you can't blow their heads off and they blink and disappear from the screen, after you killed them. This is lame and sucks ass. And this is why I rather import movies and games. Then I can be sure to get an uncut version.
It sounds like the graphic violence comes out of Super Mario Bros. Not the shitty Bob Hoskins movie, either...

That movie was bad...
And yes, I sometimes ask myself, why Super Mario never is accused to have a bad influence on children.

The new Manowar album is absolutely terrible. I actually expected it to be bad so I've saved disappointment. However, it's still a shame for them to make a record as effortless as this.

Level 27. I miss my hammer already. The redesign levels are vastly inferior to the old ones for the most part. Also hit 6,000 posts a while ago I think.

I just hit 22,000 B/P

As for the 106,000 vs top 2,000 argument, I think once you pass the Supreme Commander stage there isn't really a whole lot of point in celebrating every 1,000 B/P, because all the milestones you're working towards at that point are artificial. There isn't an upper bounds to how many you can have, and there aren't any more levels above that. I'd argue that once you hit 30,000, it's the increments of 5,000 that should get attention, as well as repeating digits (i.e. 33,333). For the top xxxx, that's a statistic that is entirely based on competition, and becoming the top so-many of anything is usually a big deal, especially as that number gets smaller. So in my mind, 106,000 is an impressive number, but it's no more impressive than 105,000 was or than 107,000 will be; but entering the top 2,000 experience is a really big deal.

Oh, and since I'm here, I may as well shill for myself: I wrote a horror novel, and now I'm trying to raise funds so I can edit and publish it. You can read the entire first draft starting here, and if you feel like helping out either by donating or by spreading the word, the Indiegogo campaign is here.


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.

It's hard to see how the ranks themselves are natural :P At least 1,000 increments are round numbers and they take weeks to reach.

Who says I haven't done anything with my life?

Oh yeah, me...

You've done more than I have so consider that thought for a moment.

Nothing beats the hammer from the 2007 redesign.

Sounds like you're getting your Big Jugs out. :P

Ohhhhhh shit! I see this now as a ploy to bring us back to congratulating users. Well, now my policy is set in foot FOREVER!
Set in foot? Do you mean set in stone?

You know what I mean.

Don't let me know where your dick has been.
In a communal shower :P

Next thing I don't want to know: Where you go to have that shower.

Where did he say that?
He sent me a PM yesterday

I'd advise him to PM Luis about it but surely Luis would have been asked that before.

Bribing me with lots of money sure would help. ;)
Ah, but if I had lots of money, I'd fund The Forsaken City first. Sorry, but I really want that project to get off the ground :(

But what if the project doesn't succeed its funding goal?

I'm ahead of you on this one. I knew it was going to be bad anyway but this bad? That's a different story. This is actually the worst album I've heard from this year so far and I know so little albums from 2012 that suck. Then again, I don't know too many that are uber good.

We should ask Tom for some reward then. "Hey Tom, we are doing lists day in, day out. WE keep the statwhoring alive!"

It is a department with activity, Tom.

It's hard to see how the ranks themselves are natural :P At least 1,000 increments are round numbers and they take weeks to reach.

Not artificial vs natural, artificial vs actual. The ranks are hard and fast milestones that you can pursue, and while you're doing that, every 1,000 increment is a big deal because it gets you closer to the next rank. Once you pass the last of them, the 1,000 increments don't mean anything other than having gotten another 1,000. Yes they're round numbers, but they get less and less important/impressive the more times you get them. To analogize, a week is a nice round amount of time, but after a while you stop using them to count someone's age, because saying I'm 1,687 weeks old would be stupid. When a week stops being a relevant amount compared to what came before, you move on to months and then to years; same idea applies here. After hitting 30,000, single thousand increments cease to impress, because you've already had 30 of them; we should move to increments of 5,000 of which you've only had 6.

The real question is whether there comes a point at which we should move away from increments of 5,000, and only celebrate increments of 10,000.

I see. Then I'll have to kickstart this thing myself. "If you fund this project, I will promise to do congrats-list daily in the LUL."

Seems promising enough.

While I like the merit of it, I now have an additional $35, as Forsaken City was not funded :(

So, what am I going to get as my incentive for spending $35 on this project?

And yes, I sometimes ask myself, why Super Mario never is accused to have a bad influence on children.
I think I need some more realistic violence from a video game. That's why I'm loading up Lord of the Rings.
I was playing some Fallout 3 again the other day. The violence there is pretty realistic. Well, except for heads flying off a little TOO easy every now and then. >_>

Borderlands is quite fun for killing time, to be honest. No two guns are the same and being able to make a giant psychopath explode right in front of your eyes is always amusing.

At some stage, yes.

We'll sort something out at some stage, no doubt.

So in short, 2012 has been average - not spectacular, but not dire, either.

Tell that to someone who has reached the age of 101. Happy birthday, Grandma. We're not going to celebrate until you reach 105, because you've had so many birthdays, after all, you old cunt.

To analogize, a week is a nice round amount of time, but after a while you stop using them to count someone's age, because saying I'm 1,687 weeks old would be stupid.

And yet, we congratulate people for reaching 1,111, 2,222 and 3,333 DAYS on Newgrounds. Ergo, your argument is invalid.

The real question is whether there comes a point at which we should move away from increments of 5,000, and only celebrate increments of 10,000.

Fine. Have it your way. Only congratulate me for every 5,000 or 10,000 B/P. I will still post my achievements in here, because I still believe them to be achievements.

No, you wouldn't. You'd be about Level 16 and struggling to make ground on your next level, let alone making it to the very top. Hell, I'd still be about Level 24, striving to get closer to Pimp.
