My take on the whole potential changes for depositing. Voting on ten entries a day might be a little tiring but I welcome the fact that votes will apply to any portal so it won't restricted to just games and movies anymore. It makes it easier to deposit on the phone as well since only a limited number of content from games and movies can be viewed. My older Android phone was able to play audio submissions but games and movies was another matter.

Only thing I'm not so sure about is the double EXP on weekends as Tom talked about on his other post. I suppose seeing as all of us have the chance to get the double points, it's not so bad and it's on a fairer scale than what I've heard being suggested in the past. If they're going ahead with that one idea, I'd like it if they made it Friday-Sunday for double points so each week you would earn up to 100 EXP. I like my round numbers.

I like the idea of he EXP in all portals, also allow Rank (B/P VP bonus) in all portals too. the idea of double EXP weekend be it friday-sunday would mean 100 EXP a week which wold equal 400 EXP a month which means 4,800 EXP a YEAR. and one could easily level up and get higher levels than what the current system allows. of course that would give US higher levels a even better advantage. ;)

This is basically how Nuclear escalation works - someone at the top of the heap is going to get the most experience possible and allow them to stay ahead of you, no matter what happens.

Get used to it Tony, you're still going to be a little fish in a big pond ;)

Changes don't look so great for my situation. If I'm reading that correctly, you'll only be able to vote (and get EXP) on each submission once? For a long time I haven't had time for content, I spend the time I have elsewhere, so for now I'm mostly collecting stats. I suppose if art counts that would make it not very time-consuming, as long as it's clear how many more votes you can do so I don't forget about double weekends and such. But I guess my case isn't worth consideration because I'm not adding anything to the site by always voting on stuff I've already seen.

Belated thanks for the update.

I think it was something like that where you where able to chose to deposit your exp even if you hadn't voted on 5 submissions.

Yeah, it seems similar to the new system they have in mind.

I like the idea of "merging" all the portals exp wise. This should bring more attention to the art and audio portal.

Agreed. It is about time votes in those portals give experience. It'll at least give submissions some more votes.

Topping it off at 100 XP per week would be great.

It sucks if you have to go away for a weekend with no internet access though.

I'm looking at the deposit rates of the truly big fish - Pimp for example. That guy doesn't miss deposits, so catching him is going to take a while.

well I pumped the numbers and to start from Level 1 to where I am now will take 4.9 years of depositing and I check NG logs and I have a Deposit rate of 66.56%. so yeah I think I might be at least Medium size fish compared to all of these level 1-20 10-13 users.

All positive. Attaining EXP on all portals should encourage voting for plenty who has previously had no interest in it, make it easier to gain EXP even on devices/connections that don't support heavier media forms than images and overall just unite different content forms in a better way. I've missed the deposit screen since it disappeared, but as long as there's still a message letting you know when you've collected all possible EXP for said day, the ability to gain EXP on a per vote basis won't be that big a change. Double EXP weekends sounds like fun as well, as long as the extra EXP isn't spread out on random occasions it seems like a fair system.

I agree the EXP on ALL PORTALS would be good also bring back the your vote is (+1.23) or whatever it was worth when you scored, Double EXP weekends sounds like a good idea too friday to sunday so you can get a full 100 EXP a week seems right. and put B/P voting power in all portals as well.

so adding your B/P vote that you got from movies shouldn't matter when you vote on art/audio right?...

The final EXP update is now available!

Hello all and welcome to the belated 70th EXP update and... this is it. My very last EXP update and not only that, this officially retires all my business with maintaining stats lists. I've enjoyed making these updates over the last five years but as time went on with myself making more progress in the real world and having less enthusiasm for all the required work to put into these updates, I felt it was time to hang it up. 2013 sees the end of myself managing the EXP updates but in the new year I hope to see that my successor will be setting things up soon enough.

NEXT UPDATE: To be confirmed...

It was great while it lasted.

Thank you for those years of service; as a kindred stat-whore, I can truly appreciate all of the work and effort it takes to maintain these lists. I can also understand how real life can creep up and get in the way, and that's not a bad thing.

I wish you well in all your endeavors, and may you and your family have a very Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!

Cheers!

Sure thing. There's still plenty of space for a full archive of updates, I'll be happy to host them when the time comes!

Now that I've provided the final update, we can start making arrangements for archiving all my EXP updates. I have all the update files on my laptop so it'll be a matter of passing it all over to you. I expect the .zip file could possibly take up 100MB and I don't think Gmail can accept file uploads that big. I'm sure I could get somewhere with Dropbox, though...

I wish he'd post in the LUL about it... A big congrats to him -definitely one of the biggest statistical achievements in NG history.

He made that one exception with reaching level 60 in the LUL. Maybe he'll post when he reaches 100k. ;)

I look at where you are in the top 100 and realise how close you actually are to the top 50. Granted, it could still be a while longer before you're even there but as you creep over these active users, it won't take too long to get there. My ranking progress has been slow as of late but it should pick up a bit in a week or two and I hope to see myself in the top 90 hopefully around Easter. Top 80 could be at the end of 2014 if I'm really lucky.

Indeed. I even remember you at the London meet in January where you were appreciating my work for the updates, particularly this one.

• Pimp broke the 50k barrier for EXP so here's hoping he can gain another 50k at some point but I have my doubts that I'll even see that happening since who knows where we'll all be by then.
Well, I used to believe I'd never actually make it to the top 50...

I'd say to myself that I may never reach the top 50 but if I'm guaranteed to get in the top 75 the way all the users above me are going, there's a chance that I can make it to the top 50 someday.

Accounts with an EXP rank of #0 are deactivated therefore they don't count towards NG's official stat rankings. With my updates it listed even those that had accounts deactivated so while they have no ranking, they are still on these updates. You'll know which ones are deactivated since their names are displayed in red strikethrough text.

I'm sure those that made it to level 60 just before my retirement feel good. However, this isn't the last of these updates since they will return but from another listholder. It's only the last of me managing them.

Haven't seen it around in quite some time, are there any new "sites" or stat lists dedicated to showing the top Voting Power List.

And likewise, any talk of finally, as once there was, have visible for all to see one's full voting power, with perhaps their current Non-B/P "raw" voting power beneath it, or set-up in such a way? Something I viewed more as a downgrade than an upgrade back during the first major upgrade, in... 08 or 07 was it?

It was a significant update for me as well, as I made level 51 and finally took a place in the top 200. I'm also pleased to see that my level icon is genuinely unique, as I am the only level 51 with my current aura.

Thanks for the updates over all these years Bahmut, it will be strange seeing them being updated by someone else.

And thanks for all previous updates throughout these past five years! And thanks for those update files (that shall soon be taken care of)! Though this marks the end of your reign as one of the most punctual (?) updaters and concurrent list holders throughout the years it's good to know all these lists will live on in the hands of new competent post producing management.

Just received word back from the one who was going to take over the list stating that real life priorities makes it tough for them to manage the list on a regular basis. With that, the opportunity for anyone to take over this list is open again. If you are interested in taking over, you can either post here or drop me a PM.
