Thanks for the patchwork issue, Bahamut and thanks to byteslinger for getting the programming gremlins back into line.

Looks like I've managed to Coop DekarKaine, so I'm now up to 93rd. FIGMENTUM and Stormwarden are starting to loom on the horizon, so 91st is a vague notion for the moment. I'll get there, sooner or later, I just need to close in on the marks, who are probably a little too far ahead at the moment. (30,610 should be where I land for the next update, breathing down Stormwarden's neck)

Wait, how could anyone get 590 experience on this update? Nobody has 580, but two people have 590.

I've heard Coop's story but the other one has some explaining to do. I'm beginning to wonder if there's some sort of exploitation going on for depositing. There's really no other possibility as to how one gets more than you should have for 28/56 days.

Bahamut for the update, thanks!

I almost reached the golden chainsaw, and I might actually pass some people before the next update. Can't wait!

What was Coop's story? I always assumed the deposit system wasn't exploitable. Besides, it's just 20 points above the max, it's not like someone earn 1000 points in one month or something. There must be a logical explanation for it, me thinks?

My apologies for the double post, but I just noticed the other user has a deposit rate of 101,49%. At the time of the update, he was a NG member for 940 days. This means his max points should be 9400 and some points you get after registering (50, right?). His experience at the time of the update was 9540 points. This means he has 140 (or 90?) points more than he could possibly have. This is obviously not an insane amount, but it's still very questionable. Any thoughts?

I climed 7 ranks, which is pretty awesome. There are some inactive and some semi-active users in front of me. Most notable name should be humantarget52, who currently is #151 on the Exp-List. Only 63 days until I pass him.

I missed a deposit when the redesign was launched. I had work in the morning and stayed up until 2am, so as not to miss a deposit, chatting to Tom on AIM, as the redesign came online, then the servers fell over, as is apparently customary.

I went to bed, as there was no sign of things coming back on and Tom's ETA was "hours". I slept, woke up next morning and found that I had missed a deposit, when the servers came back and stayed back. I politely sent Tom a PM, asking if I could have my missed deposit back (hey, a guy's got to try, right?)

Three months later, I suddenly notice that my experience has gone above the total that my spreadsheet predicts each morning. 30 points gained above and beyond the deposits. I'm not going to complain about that, am I?

For those of you that play Munchkin (Nope just me, then), convenient addition error - go up a level.

This is what I've been scratching my head over as well. While the odd excess happens, this one has been occurring a few times now and it's hard to pinpoint where this is happening.

If there are questions then this user should be looked into. If there is a way to cheat the system, it should be found out and fixed.

I'm the only player I know of, who has killed the entire party with one turn. Took them all with me, by passing some of their monsters onto other folks, when the level 1 pot plant turned into a level 20 Plutonium Dragon, which was a baby, with a mother and it's mate, it happened to have a doppleganger with it and there might have been one more. Two transferral potions and the kneepads of allure really helped me to get everyone involved.

Hardly. I usually have it set up in the evening so give me about 7 hours and you will get it. Stat pulling is an extremely slow process these days, especially when I have over 3,000 users to cover for one update.

EXP Update #55 is now available!

Hello all and welcome to the 55th EXP update. It feels much better to be back to the 28-days routine for the updates.

NEXT UPDATE: 14th October 2012

See Painbringer, not dead at all!

Oh, wait. Tomorrow morning, I'll advance to 92nd, having Cooped Stormwarden. Now there's a blast from the past. Then it's a case of waiting for members like ORKarate, iWalker and Dopefish to miss enough deposits for me to catch them. A good job that I have other hobbies, isn't it?

up 7 on the main and up 25 on the alt, not too bad! the top 300 is still pretty far away it seems, though. i did miss a few deposits due to me being busy, and being sick, but hopefully things will be going back to normal soon.

Not a bad month at all. +6 is very nice. Should gain 3 spots on the next update, taking me into the Top 160 but even better I will finally have reached Level 50.

The correct amount should really be 280. 290 is if you deposited later on the day for the previous EXP update but deposited earlier on this time.

Sorry about that little blip but at least the 56th update will look good, right? I can't say for sure when I'll get a +2 on an update again so I made the most of it. I don't even expect to go up a rank on the next update.

Actually, considering where you are right now I expect you to get more than 10-15 by the next update. There are plenty of inactive users around you there so those rank gains will look big. At times I miss passing so many users but I've got to move forward and aim for the top 100.

And this is why I use NG Log for my daily stats needs. It tells me my EXP and B/P ranks there when I log my stats for the day. It's a nifty site that I've been using for years now.

You don't sound that far off from the top 150.

Keep in mind that NG ranks do not reflect the rankings on my updates. My updates include ALL users with 8k+ EXP whereas the NG rank listing for EXP excludes deactivated accounts. If you check the users marked in red strikethrough text above you, you'll see that they have 0 for EXP rank and therefore not part of NG's stat listings.

In all fairness, I probably only made a statement about red strikethrough text users just once on the site and that was the first post-2012 redesign EXP update. What I have thought of doing a few times is writing a FAQ for the site to cover both EXP and hexalist updates. Would be nice to give information to the more recent viewers on that site. Well, however many new visitors I even get on my site for update needs nowadays.
