Hello all and welcome to my 38th Top EXP Update.

NEXT UPDATE: 29th May 2011

193 | Auz | 22,400 | 45 | 280 | +5

Things are looking good here. I'm still gaining plenty of ranks on every update and I'm also about to pass Denvish which is pretty sweet.

Thanks for the update Bahamut!

Thanks for the update, Bahamut, great stuff

Looks like I also owe thanks to Zenxin, Yume and carmehadinosaur, for allowing me to Coop them.

I think I've only got one viable target this month, which would be life. I need one.

Seriously though, he's dropped deposits with regularity over the past few months and now I'm within 4 deposits of him, so I've got a chance and it's up to me to take it.

Thank you for the list update.

#1,444 and level 32 now and once again I have gone without missing a deposit. I think this is the fifth update in a row now. I am also happy to see that I have gained +37 ranks and plenty of users in front of me don't deposit at all.

Hello all and welcome to my 38th Top EXP Update.

Thanks for the update Bahamut. And once again, Congrats on your NG UOTY award.

226 gamejunkie 21,645 45 270 +3 70.78% 12/16/02

+3 and no days missed yet again. Not to shabby. Quite a few inactives ahead, a possible jump of 6 spots for the next update.

NEXT UPDATE: 29th May 2011

I have nothing better to do than wait, so wait I shall.

526 | Powerage | 17,120 | 290 | +6 | 85.47%

Six ranks gained. judging by who is ahead of me, i forsee a slightly bigger gain than for the next month, and i predict that i will hit top 500 sometime in July.

1,407 | Egarewop | 10,820 | 290 | +43 | 56.06%

43 ranks gained on the alt, which is pretty good. looking at the list, i predict a larger gain for next month on this account also, and am also looking to pass 11k experience.

well, thanks again Bahamut and see you next month!

Whew. The next quarter looks good for some passage. I might make my goal of top 100 by 2012 yet! If I'm REALLY lucky, maybe even before the fall.

Really though... I hope this pesky guy who's been tied with me for months but signed up 5 days earlier would miss one.

Thanks for four updates while I was away. Only missed 2 in the pentalist topic and only 1 in the VP topic (!!!), but 4 here... egad. It's because I didn't catch up here in late Feb like I did those other two, I hadn't posted here since mid-Jan, jeeeez!

Hello all and welcome to my 35th Top EXP Update. For this update we have our third ranked EXP user oblivion reaching level 60 so congratulations to him on reaching the last level (assuming level 61 is a gimmick). This year should be seeing a few other level 60 users with Mike27112, Narcissus, NeMeSiSM66 and Junon all less than 3,000 EXP away from the final level.

Excellent work, oblivion. CONGRATS! I always knew you'd be a better Pimp to Pimp than Pimp was a Pimp to humantarget52.... er... whoa.

Oh, and congrats to bomb as well. I don't think I ever gave him any. ;_;

30480, also a very nice number! Though it means I missed a deposit, I suppose, with that +270 there. Still, you keep updating the list right as I'm at cool exp amounts. Gotta love 30,000+ numbers in general, too. They can only mean 36,000 is on the way. #;-}>

Well, 40 was already top 40, and 39's nothing too special to me (or too bad, either)... it was a pity passing Stormwarden on the VP list, but since it brought me from #11 to #10, I was personally happy about it... but passing him here just makes me sad. He really needs to resume depositing. I mean, to get any higher within the top 50, I gotta pass SOMEone, but... ol' Stormwarden. ;_;

His % is still higher than mine, though. lolz. And while he got TRIPLE-PASSED, he got to sit on #42 for at least one update, so there is that. Nice. #;-}>

Come on, you can easily delete a Trophy Belt. JUST A MERE TROPHY BELT!

lol. I might, but I've never had even 1 of them. My wife's had TWO, though. She got one via drop, and uncrated the other one. She immediately crafted the lower leveled one together with another dupe hat and got HEAVY SAMURAI/SUMO WRESTLER HAIR! It's not the greatest hat for heavy (hell, it might be one of the worst, though it's better than hitler hair, that's for sure)... but she had 0 heavy hats, and it remains her only one, so it'll have to do. Heavy was the last class she didn't have a hat for, too. COLLECTION COMPLETE!... ish.

Already traded away my description tags as well as those shitty duel mini-games. One guy I know wants as much duel mini-games as possible so I'll happily hand them over to him. As for description tags, whoever wants them.

Hahah, I was trading a hat for a hat with Trickster last night, and he wanted to get rid of descrip tags, name tags, paint, and dueling minigames. I only took 2 name tags and a few duels (I can always trade 'em if I don't use 'em). But I can't think of a good way to use descrip tags and I have enough paint already (and more to come from crates at some point, I'm sure).

And just earlier in the evening I was swapping hats with Wiggles as well, and he wanted to toss me 2 crates and a paint. I declined them all. I have a new "no extra crates" policy, Valve gives me enough as it is. #;-}>

You didn't have to poop all over my party there....
Well there's no plot twist, alright?

Very well. I don't even remember why I wanted one anymore, anyway. :D

At 2/7/11 04:21 PM, Cootie wrote: 9,850 30 280 +82 58.81%

Not bad. Once again I didn't miss a single deposit between updates unlike all of the other users that were once close to me in the rankings. I still can't believe that even though I haven't missed a deposition in months I only have a 58.81% deposit rate.

That break I took a few years back really killed me.

When I really got into NG in early 2003, I inherited a very very very poor-in-stats-by-my-later-standards account... FROM MYSELF... that I'd made in 2000 but neglected quite horribly. I had around 950 exp out of a possible 10,500ish at that time. I began depositing every day, and didn't miss a deposit till like 2005 or 2006, and since then I've missed no more than 1, 2, maybe 3 per year.

My % when I started truly being a NG statwhore in early 2003 was 9.05%.

My % now is nearly 76%.

That took over 8 years to do. We do indeed pay a heavy price for our past stat-neglecting sins.

But take heart, my 9 to 76% rise should illustrate that anything is possible in NG statland, given enough time. :D

level 55.... next best thing to level 42... so tempting to just stop depositing once I get there.

If 36,000 exp and level 55 were possible to have at the same time... I probably couldn't resist the urge. Or at the very least, gfoxclock would have one hell of a retirement exp amount AND level icon at the same time.

I'd rather have neither, but... yeah, the 60 level system is relatively fresh still, no need to fuck with it for a few more years, at least.

At 2/9/11 09:34 AM, jonthomson wrote: god, getting into the top 50 is going to take forever
At least you're only a mere five ranks away. Some of us are still at least 100 ranks away from the top 50 such as myself. Getting to the top 100 is one thing but the top 50 is another.

Getting to the top 100 would be the exact same grind as getting to the top 50 if all 100 people were depositing 99% of the days in each year, really.

It's all up to the depostering of those above ye. How many shall fail to deposit, and for how long shall they fail to deposit.

Of course, I'm not saying that say going from 105 to 100 and going from 55 to 50 TEND to take the same amount of time, just that they could. Hell, it's even possible (not sure if it's ever happened in the past, but it may quite possibly happen in the future) that for one user, the people between 105 and 100 are such good depositers for so long he has to wait for people who were in the 60s or 70s (back when he first went from 106 to 105) to drop down to 100-105 before he can pass enough to get to #100.... LONGER... than he has to wait for his own 55 to 50 transition. Unlikely, but possible.

#2434 none the less. Hopefully I will move up in June, nglogs says I'm currently at 2300 something.

If I had never missed a deposit since I've been on NG I'd be #20 on the list lol too bad I have a RL and didn't worry about depositing too much over my NG career of 9 years.

I have a fun little spreadsheet that works out where everyone might be on the last 2011 EXP update. You're looking well good to get there by then while Coop is one rank shy off the top 100. I think luck will be on his side and he'll reach the top 100 by the end of the year as well. As for me, I know it'll be ages considering there are many active users just in between myself and Coop and we're only 28 ranks apart.

Really though... I hope this pesky guy who's been tied with me for months but signed up 5 days earlier would miss one.

I see it as good in one way that I didn't sign up then, however since chances are my parents may have caught a better glimpse on the site then and shit would have been bad with my internet privacy. Hell, later on I had to fight hard for my privacy and I'd have someone's neck if it was ever violated.

Come on, you can easily delete a Trophy Belt. JUST A MERE TROPHY BELT!
lol. I might, but I've never had even 1 of them. My wife's had TWO, though. She got one via drop, and uncrated the other one. She immediately crafted the lower leveled one together with another dupe hat and got HEAVY SAMURAI/SUMO WRESTLER HAIR!

That was a great move!

And just earlier in the evening I was swapping hats with Wiggles as well, and he wanted to toss me 2 crates and a paint. I declined them all. I have a new "no extra crates" policy, Valve gives me enough as it is. #;-}>

Yeah, I really don't want more crates at this point. They're nasty things, especially when you feel there might be an unusual hat hiding in one of them.

You didn't have to poop all over my party there....
Well there's no plot twist, alright?
Very well. I don't even remember why I wanted one anymore, anyway. :D

Why you wanted a party? Why not?

If 36,000 exp and level 55 were possible to have at the same time... I probably couldn't resist the urge. Or at the very least, gfoxclock would have one hell of a retirement exp amount AND level icon at the same time.

There should be some level swapping for the redesign. Keep the shurikens slightly apart from each other, make level 55 a higher level and scrap the bow entirely. The NG staff never wanted projectile weapons for their icons so WHY THE FUCK DOES THIS PIECE OF SHIT EVEN EXIST?!

I'd rather have neither, but... yeah, the 60 level system is relatively fresh still, no need to fuck with it for a few more years, at least.

Apart from my suggestions above, there's no need to change the level system around at all. It's perfect as it is besides the icons.

HEY NOW.

Sorry, this is what happens.

Yeah, come on guys... this is the longest, most boring, most cliched action sequence I've ever seen in a movie. Can you guys please just get to whatever top xxx you're aiming for already? PLEASE? #;-}>

I could show you some Bahamut XXX action right here if it helps. I did love that comparison since some movies take it way too far with slow motion sequences. That's way I felt 300 was such a shit movie.

It's not because I post excessively, more like I post steadily and you... don't

And I post more steadily. The last 12 months have been much faster with my posting rate than the last few years. Even without being a BBS mod I'm sure my pace would still be good. Admittedly, I am aiming for the top 10 posters which will take a while since I need around 27.5k posts to pass the person in 10th place.

Hello all and welcome to my 38th Top EXP Update.

NEXT UPDATE: 29th May 2011

Last-minute day-before-the-next-update replying coming up.

577 NEVR 16,500 39 250 +14 77.39% 06/29/05

Slowly but surely creeping up the list despite a few missed deposits. I'm pretty pleased with a 77.4% average over the course of nearly 6 years. I'm certainly no Bahamut.

Anyway, cheers for this update and all the ones I've neglected to reply to.

I, too, have missed (well, intentionally) deposits but it seems you are lagging behind by quite a margin there pal ;-P

I don't even remember why we deposit these days ..

Thanks for the update, Bahamut - nice work.

Standing pat for another month, but I have crucially closed the gap to life down to a mere two deposits. Perhaps I can make a move over the next month, while I set up for a 4-5 rank gain over July.

I'll take every day as it comes - get up, deposit, carry on as normal.

Yes, congrats to him on this awesome achievement :)

191 | Auz | 22,680 | 280 | +2

Alright, two more ranks gained here. Looking ahead of me I see there's a bit of a gap between me and #190, but shortly after that are a couple of inactive peeps. It's likely that I'll gain about four ranks on the next update.

Thanks for this update Bahamut! Good work as always.

Congratulations Mike.

+8 for the 4 weeks is very nice. Wont be so good next 4 weeks though, only likely to pass 1 by next update.
A lot of movement ahead.

NEXT UPDATE: 26th June 2011

Cant wait. Cheers.

so assuming none of stormwarden, dopefish, dafreak or dekathos come back, i should be able to hit the top 50 in about 18 months... bleh. at least in the old system i'd be a couple of weeks from the tom photos, can't even look forward to that lol. a few people a few places above that don't quite do 100% so could always chip away at them perhaps

+8 is pretty nice. I'm closing in on the top 200, but it still takes a while to actually get there, about 4 months, I guess.

The pitfalls of a busy life, I fear. Thankfully things are settling down now.

Forgot to mention yesterday how much I like the current layout of these updates. It's pretty cool that the level icons update with each user's aura too; I didn't expect mine to have changed from blue to yellow for this update. Nice work, even if I'm a bit late in saying so. ;)

567 NEVR 16,740 39 240 +10 77.50% 06/29/05

A few missed deposits again, but I was travelling abroad, so it's excusable. Hopefully there won't be many more.

thank you for the update Bahamut!

513 | Powerage | 17,390 | 270 | +13 | 85.62%

13 ranks gained, over twice last month's gain, which is good. judging from the list, i'm predicting a smaller gain for June than the gain i made in May, though the gain will be larger than what i made in April. if i had to guess how much i would gain, i'd say maybe 8 to 10 ranks. it also looks like i won't quite make the top 500 by the next update, though i'll be pretty close.

1,353 | Egarewop | 11,090 | 270 | +54 | 56.64%

54 ranks gained on the alt, bigger than last time, as i had predicted. i'm predicting a smaller gain for next month, possibly 35 to 40 ranks, if i had to guess how much i gained when the next update will come around. it also looks like i'll hit level 33 on the day of the next update. we will see if the predictions i'm making for my accounts come to pass.
