Hi there I remember the name nice to here from you it has been a while! It would be sad too see the b/p points go Littlewashu but, if it meant the stop of stat whores I would welcome it. The portal does seem to be worse then before the redesign right? I miss the whistles I know we maybe wont get them back but it helped more I thought. I hope the b/p thing those is sorted I hate to see the portal like this.


Archer I'm a good shot!

Have I missed something? Is there talk of scraping the B/P system? Although I agree that it would get rid of the save whores and make the portal a fairer place I think that it's a little extreme.

it is a conversation that me and Coop had in the top 50 B/P thread. Coop was the one who thought that it might be time to scrap the B/P thing and to be frank with you I actually think it might be a good idea. I know it sounds extreme, but ever since this wave of saves came along almost anything get pass the portal. It doesn't help any that we don't have the extra tools to stop the illegal shit from getting in either. I know it is only temporary, but as I stated before even with the genre mods marking stuff stolen, and up for deletion they still ignore it for the sake of points.

It is so bad now that the users who are doing the right thing are being punished while the abusers are gaining points and becoming more powerful. Also as I stated before even if the admins remove the shit after it passes the users who did the right thing don't get their reward while the people who abused the system keep their ill gotten point. So as sad as it is to say the B/P system as of now is doing more harm to NG them good thanks to those users who care more about points then what comes onto NG itself.

So I was wrong in calling out this flash? Or do the majority of users have it wrong?
Kinda on a tight schedule and don't usually bother with the games in the Portal, 'cause most of them are shovelware crap.
Any advice to a prospective Elite Guard member is appreciated.

No, you're absolutely right. They're only passing because of the savewhores and people who don't bother to read tags.

Uuuh - I didn't even notice the tags on that one! Usually when something looks suspect, I check the author for activity. I'd think anyone who worked on code for hours would at least say something other than "Press the spacebar to continue."
Tom's gotta make a bigger fuss about this if anything's going to change with regard to member's voting habits.
The only change I think would help (and there's been more than enough talk on the vote subject) would be a wider vote spread (0-10) or the ability to vote in tenths or quarters, like 2.6 or 2.75. It'd be a nice middle of the road approach.

Sorry about the double post, but, yes...sad but true...my 40+ month run in the top 5 has come to an end. Coop pushed me out by a few points - and all of the others really seem to pound it out month after month as well. I am glad to see that type of activity here in the barracks - but I'd rather see MORE members active than just a handful doing 70% of the work...

Thanks for the roster Byte. Indeed these new members to the list shall be good especially seasoned veterans like GameJunkie. At least this club is showing some signs of activity which is more then what can be said for the NGPD of late.

Milestones::
Decky - 7K saves, 9K total B/P

Promotions::
Decky - Sgt. Major

Another two milestones under my belt and a promotion, hopefully more to come for the next roster. Congrats to all the other users that have achieved milestones/promotions this month.

The List:
No. B/P / Gain / Average / Level / Change / Username / Rank / Posts / Level
19) 10,061 | 0,017 | 00.55 | D | -085.34 | SeeD419 Sgt. Major | 0 | F
20) 9,839 | 1,375 | 44.35 | A | +018.03 | Decky Sgt. Major +2 | 24 | B
21) 9,783 | 0,109 | 03.52 | D | -011.38 | BrokenDeck Sgt. Major -1 | 0 | F

Up 2 places this month and possibly the most gain I have ever gotta from one roster to the next. All in all it has been a good month for me on NG.

Top 5 Gainers::
Decky - 1,375 (13.25% of total)

Can't complain with 4th.

my 40+ month run in the top 5 has come to an end. Coop pushed me out by a few points - and all of the others really seem to pound it out month after month as well.

After 40 months you must be more then gutted that it has come to an end. I wish I had gotten less just so that you could have continued. I guess after a while though it feels more like a responsibility then something you have earnt as Newgrounds slowly sucks up your life.

I'd rather see MORE members active than just a handful doing 70% of the work...

I know the feeling, it would be a more worthy cause if we were to get a couple more users that get 1000+ gain near enough every month.

Damn, that sucks. I never thought I'd be at the top of the repeat appearances list. My time is probably coming soon too. I've nearly fallen off the list several times in the past few months.

I thought that taking a game, plastering different colors/designs on it, and submitting it were against the rules? This guy didn't make QWOP but here he is submitting it with a different character. How is this any different than those god-awful Madness Interactive "mods" we see every now and then?

Since they admit it's just a new character skin with the rest of the game being the same it is not allowed, just like the countless stencyl and Game Factory 2 test games people upload despite them being premade games.

The month gone by so quick now it is august and time for the Roaster again I have not gotten any change in b/p. Thanks for the list and, Spretznaz yes the account gamesgrow sure is annoying. Talking of games I have gotten really addicted to my PC game Plant Vs Zombies. Fantastic game very funny and playable. Funny how a simple concept works so well.

I caught 3 in one day! Glad I didn't catch this one though - I usually PM the author with the usual reasons why it didn't work: didn't convert fla to swf, and maybe why.....
Sucks to vote zero on 'em otherwise. How can you rate something that you can't see or play? I made that mistake in a review not so long ago, and got a nasty little bot message saying it had been deleted - can't vote zero in a review if there's no content to observe.

Welcome to the new guys, just managing to nose ahead of byte by seven points this time around. Upped my pace, which was also good.

I've now also lapped phantomlassuk, which is another noteworthy statistic.

Thanks for the update, byteslinger. Much appreciated

42 months. For three-and-a-half years, you have been the figurehead of B/Ping in this barracks, byte. Still cranking out the B/P and still fighting the good fight. I guess that I just proved that there is enough life in the old dog to end your streak, like you ended mine so cruelly about six months ago :P

Congratulations to you all!

Awesome, Thank You so much. I wish I could be super excited about this right now but as most of you already know, this has not been such a great week for me. I will probably remain a bit lowkey for the next couple of weeks or so, butrest assured I will dive in at the deep end when I return to full mental capacity.

Barracks Roster as of August 1st, 2012:
(New members will have data in next month's report)

Looking forward to it.

Yay. Congrats to you other guys.

Finally.

Thanks Jolly. It's good to be here finally. I would have come over here earlier but I've been busy doing nothing. ;-P

Thanks Coop. Looks like you guys will need to up that pace a little bit more now. You have some new competition. ME. LOL!

Didn't post all month? Huh, will have to try and rectify that.

End of an era, I figured you were never gonna be pushed out short of a significant dropoff in activity. You make a good point though regarding others being active; it's excellent to see so many gains being made.

Thanks for the roster byte.

I can't even vote 0 on this one because it keeps spawning popups for me. I don't know what they are (just that its something to do with Adobe), because it spawns so many it crashes my computer.

Did you not notice that it was called Crash? I have a feeling it was named that for a reason. Sounds like you may need to upgrade your security. I didn't get one pop up. If you want to vote on it, you might try turning the Pop Up function on whatever browser your using, to the off setting, that will probably allow you access to it to vote.

I noticed the name, but didn't think the uploader was gonna be some kinda royal a-hole who just wanted to screw with people. It's like that last person who uploaded those flashes where it popped up porn and tried to force you to print it out. Now I gotta be wary of certain flashes that have names like those, which sucks.

Idiots who upload this kinda garbage frustrate me, and undermine those who actually try.
