You guys have probably noticed by now, but I've stopped making lists here.

I'm more than a little under a cloud over work (factors beyond my control), cricket (my situation with the various aspects of club admin) and personal life, so Newgrounds has sadly taken a back seat of late :(

I'd say you've come to the point where its level 60 or bust. I never understood users who came within 1000 points of reaching Supreme Commander and just quit. I mean, even if you don't care anymore, you obviously did enough to get so close -mind as well finish the job for old times sake, you know? :P

So, the discussion is long dead around here and I'm officially the last user making congrats lists. Being the only one left is starting to feel slightly pointless; I just feel bad for these guys who come to the lul to post their achievements. It sucks having your level ups going unrecognized, yet I feel that's the way it's going to end up before too long.

You know Newgrounds is in a bad way when a thread like the level up lounge is fading away. :(

Cheer up people! Summer holiday has ended, so me, along with probably a lot of other people, are just busy with their school/work again. I'll be getting medals soon. :3

Anyway, the top 1,000 in experience is a pretty awesome achievement for me. If you count b/p as one stat, I think I'm in the top 1000 for each stat now.

This should be a joyful milestone but my news post says otherwise. Just shows how much I've changed myself this year alone and how close I'm getting to the end of my time on here.
Well, since you and Coop aren't posting here as much, I often find myself not knowing what to respond to, which really sucsk.

It's a domino effect, really. When some of us don't post in a while, none of us do but when some of us start posting here again, it picks up but not by a whole lot. I could add a fair amount of discussion here but how much of it will be responded to?

Also the overall activity has been declining here so much that I rarely check the BBS for new posts. Hell, I even think I might have missed a deposit this week, but I'm too lazy to check, heh.

The latest EXP update suggests otherwise.

Anyway, I will still reach 30k Experience, but from that on, I don't know how far I can push myself.

I'm still going to aim for level 60 but I'll have to see how I feel about the site from now until then. I still want to see if I can go beyond level 60 and still continue to deposit as I did before but when I look at the latest update, I can see a lot of people who are level 60 are starting to slip up. I actually wonder when the day I slip up one day with missing a deposit is going to happen as there's been plenty of days where I thought I didn't deposit but still did so.

That's just how life goes. While I have more free time than you do, slowly but surely my life gets occupied by other things. Years back I only went out of the house twice a week and Wednesday was only for a few hours whereas Saturday was just the afternoon. Now I'm finding myself out all day on Wednesday, Saturday and going Friday night. I do what I can to keep myself occupied whilst in unemployment but when I DO get a full-time permanent job, that will leave me with hardly any free time to have and I'd like to spend my spare time on more important things.

There's that factor of spending my free time more wisely when I'm on the laptop. While I should try and play video games on my laptop more often, I've made a good decision to dedicate more time on Twitter and Tumblr where I have acquired more contacts for this year alone. I've even managed to meet a few people from Tumblr and I hope to see more from that site in the near-future. It's much better to find common interests from a more active site as such as Tumblr as opposed to Newgrounds so this is why I spend less and less time on here.

If some of us leave here permanently, I would like to acquire contacts of you all before you move on because I'd like to still speak to some of you even when NG is hardly in your interests anymore. Sadly some of you aren't accustomed to social networking so keeping in touch won't be that easy. Thankfully I have Coop on Twitter and some of you on Steam but if not, how will you stay in contact with us?

They say that but in reality the activity is dying really hard. I hate to jump on the "NG is dying" bandwagon that's going around a lot these days but just look at the statistics. There's much less discussion going on as opposed to years back. Hell, even a few years ago was more active than this. Where it is now has become a new low and the fact that Tom has been looking to revert the NGHQ back to working in houses as opposed to an office just shows the direction this site is heading to.

It's still a long way until I can reach level 60. And 1000 B/P points take a long time as well. But I know what you mean. ;)

So, the discussion is long dead around here and I'm officially the last user making congrats lists. Being the only one left is starting to feel slightly pointless;

Just keep going. Others might join in. I have seen quite a few users doing lists for some time, so I'm sure others might start doing it as well.

That's good to know. I just had the feeling: "Wait, did I deposit my Exp yesterday? Oh well, propably not..."

as there's been plenty of days where I thought I didn't deposit but still did so.

Yes, that has just happen to me. If you just come here to deposit the Exp then it kind of gets hard to keep track of wether you did deposit or not. If I can also come here to post on the BBS, then it's much easier fo me to remember if I did deposit or not. ^^

but when I DO get a full-time permanent job, that will leave me with hardly any free time to have and I'd like to spend my spare time on more important things.

Easy, just find a job that doesn't block newgrounds. :P

ICQ / AIM / MSN (if it would work properly with pidgin... but it doesn't) / Jabber
That are enough IMs to choose from, right? :P

I really am surprised at how fast activity is declining. It was on a constant rise until that one Clock Day with over 1000 submissions, and then? Well... it's been going downhill ever since.
On the other hand, Newgrounds is a very old site and there propably aren't many sites with such a long history.

That may be, but it's still gone to crap around here. (Though we appear to be chatting a bit atm.) lol

Kinda worded that badly as I wasn't trying to compare gaining 1k b/p to how far you still have to go to reach level 60. Sorry. :P As far as 1k b/p taking a long time, well, I guess that depends on who's collecting them. ;)

Just keep going. Others might join in. I have seen quite a few users doing lists for some time, so I'm sure others might start doing it as well.

Yeah, but am I the first user to be the ONLY one making them? :P I don't plan on stopping yet, but it's kind of a bummer being the only one doing them.

I am Level 31 now and I also have 10,000 Experience points.

Gotta say that I didn't really like Level 30 and I am glad that the gun is gone (huehehe), I like all those upcoming ninja and samurai weapons up to Level 40 so that makes me pretty happy too. Also like that sword that I have right now, so in my opinion Level 30-40 is probably the best row of level icons in the current design.

The Red555: 4k Experience!
Nimhster2: Getting gold whistle! Keep whistling!

sandwich-eater: 42k saves and UTOD on Ng Logs!

I seem to have reached level 59! Huzzah!

Just one more level before I reach the covenant last step. It's nostalgic to think back to how I first started with Newgrounds and coming back day after day, voting on flash movies and games of a diverse mix. I gotta say.. the animation standard has significantly grown since then.

I'm glad to see that this thread has continued its long and cherish tradition of congratulating others and themselves. It's in my opinion, still one of the most effective way to get approval from your fellow Newgrounders. Rock on guys.

I've been there more than once, though Afro_Stud has been a bit more consistent than me over the years. :P

I think Coop once was the only listmaker for a while. So you are not the first one. And even if you are, remember: You are not alone! :3

That must have been after I came back late last year -it was Coop and Odyssic then, before I jumped in, then just me and Coop. And I see I'm not alone, for the moment anyway (My old buddy BR made a list!)

Well that was a bit of a shit week. Had a long time friend who decided to start making out with me recently on one night. With that I thought she might have wanted to start dating me because of it so I make my efforts to see what I can do and when it came to seeing her last week, she was being awkward with me and on Friday night she was making out with someone else and I think he was with someone already. Sucks to feel used like that but at least now I know she wasn't the right person to date and with her off the list that means I am back down to just one option and I'm sure this one would be very loyal to me if she is willing to date me.

I was meant to have responded to these posts sooner but at least I'm doing it now.

That's good to know. I just had the feeling: "Wait, did I deposit my Exp yesterday? Oh well, propably not..."

Sooner or later I'm sure this will happen to me. I'll see if it ever happens before I reach level 60 but if I still do good then, I'd only wonder how far I could possibly go before I'm truly fed up with depositing.

Yes, that has just happen to me. If you just come here to deposit the Exp then it kind of gets hard to keep track of wether you did deposit or not. If I can also come here to post on the BBS, then it's much easier fo me to remember if I did deposit or not. ^^

I was using NG Logs to ensure me that I had been depositing but even that I've recently stopped using. I go by fortnight cycles. If I know it's an odd number (for the second to last digit, that is) on a Sunday when it should be then I know I'm good (apply even numbers to other weeks).

but when I DO get a full-time permanent job, that will leave me with hardly any free time to have and I'd like to spend my spare time on more important things.
Easy, just find a job that doesn't block newgrounds. :P

Ah but when I'm working I wouldn't even think of going on Newgrounds anyway. And besides, there are other sites that I'd much rather spend my time with than here.

If some of us leave here permanently, I would like to acquire contacts of you all before you move on because I'd like to still speak to some of you even when NG is hardly in your interests anymore. Sadly some of you aren't accustomed to social networking so keeping in touch won't be that easy. Thankfully I have Coop on Twitter and some of you on Steam but if not, how will you stay in contact with us?
ICQ / AIM / MSN (if it would work properly with pidgin... but it doesn't) / Jabber
That are enough IMs to choose from, right? :P

lol, which of them are even relevant? At least have Skype or something.

On the other hand, Newgrounds is a very old site and there propably aren't many sites with such a long history.

You can certainly give Newgrounds credit for being able to live for so long. There were even some troubles in the past where it could have went down the drain but it fought its way through. I hope that it can do that now with its struggling activity but I can't be sure. It would be great if it did pick up, though.

I have your email address. >:)

Eh, I don't really like email too much as a form of communication. Although I email Afro_Stud occasionally, I'd much rather use other forms of communication.

To be honest, I'm amazed you even find time in the portal these days.

Well done on that! It's crazy to think how close some of us are to the final level now when a few years back I would recall us being only in the mid-late 30s for levels. I want to finally reach the last level but I know when I get it I'll feel a bit sad knowing that there are no more level ups to achieve. Best making the most out of the next 18 months then.

I've been there more than once, though Afro_Stud has been a bit more consistent than me over the years. :P

Nothing against the guy but I do wonder why some users would even insist on collecting so many points after a while. Although, I tend to wonder where I'd be now if I never stopped. Perhaps be one of the top 5 but that's not something I ever want anyway and I'm glad I don't dedicate all my free time to the portal. I may have done so back in the day but that was when it was far more active and when I was aiming to reach Supreme Commander. That and I was far less sociable than I am now so.

I think I missed a deposit on Saturday. Oh well... :/

Makes me think what kind of motivation Afro_Stud has to continue B/Ping. I mean, he stopped being active on the BBS a long time ago and the gap between him and the 2nd spot in B/P-Points is quite large, so...

I think Coop once was the only listmaker for a while. So you are not the first one. And even if you are, remember: You are not alone! :3
That must have been after I came back late last year -it was Coop and Odyssic then, before I jumped in, then just me and Coop. And I see I'm not alone, for the moment anyway (My old buddy BR made a list!)

Hey hey
my my
list making will never die

If I see anything I can respond to, I will do so. :P
I was meant to have responded to these posts sooner but at least I'm doing it now.

I didn't really check the BBS in the last week anyway, so...

The latest EXP update suggests otherwise.
That's good to know. I just had the feeling: "Wait, did I deposit my Exp yesterday? Oh well, propably not..."
Sooner or later I'm sure this will happen to me. I'll see if it ever happens before I reach level 60 but if I still do good then, I'd only wonder how far I could possibly go before I'm truly fed up with depositing.

If I ever reach level 60, I think that's it for me. No real use to continue then.

I used to use NG Logs daily, so it was really easy to see if I had already deposited. But with activity declining here, my activity on NG Logs declines as well. But a quick check on the users lists there came with quite a surprise: I am in 4th spot for most Logs, haha.

All of them? :P
I can even use those on my smartphone, thanks to IM+.

At least have Skype or something.

I would use Skype too, if it would work with pidgin. But to use Skype with pidgin, I would have to start up Skype as well. That's useless... also, Microsoft reads and listens to everything you do in Skype. :P

Nearly 9 years of on again off again b/p'ing has lead to this: 38,000 saves, 12,000 blams and 50,000 B/P.

So, yeah, I am officially retired from b/p'ing. Talk about bittersweet... :\
