Really should have mentioned this on Sunday but starting from now, I'm going to post these updates on a Monday. Of course, I've had this problem before where I just forget about doing the update since my mind's not in gear as I am for Sunday but due to the ongoing length required to do the EXP and hexalist updates, it's best keeping this update on a separate day. While I could just leave the laptop running over night to do the big stat updates, the problem with that is possibly losing connection sometime while I'm asleep and won't find out until I wake up. That's a big problem since having the connection interrupted just once can make the program go haywire and skip everything else despite regaining connection after a minute or two.

And yet we have that VP to help further keep bullshit away. Then again, there are those with high VP who are clearly not deserving of having any extra voting power on the site.iscrulz admitted it further up the page. I'd say that there are those guilty, who are in the top 10 and those who have designs on the top 50 users, who are just as guilty.
If you're a savewhoring fucktard you're still a fucktard, plain and simple.

Yes, about that. You know I love your work but that's 2 years in a row you've got me with your damn April Fools jokes you bastard. Next year I will be more than prepared and I bet just to get me again you wont do one. But I will be prepared nonetheless. Do you realize how hard it is to hate someone you really like and respect for their constant commitment to a good cause. Fucking hard. That's how hard. Damn you.
In this modern age I don't see anything on April Fools as convincing. We all know people are going to joke around so I may as well have done something myself that one could have predicted. I do like Haggard's idea to do the Oldgrounds EXP updates once in a while.

...Nah, kidding of course. I only made enough commitment to do one April Fools joke for the EXP update. Worth checking out to see what I did for fun. The real thing will be up tomorrow.Retro icons and dropped from top 2,000 to top 500, hilarious!
How ironic, the new icons we have are meant to have a retro feel to the site.

I stand corrected. I don't know why I doubted you wonderful work in the first place. Probably because I had been up for 40 hours straight, but that's no excuse. Lets all just pretend that last post of mine never happened.
If anything, it helped to check out to see if the formula cells for the rank changes haven't been screwed up so I thank you for that.

SO I am I getting banned. Back in 2002 Wade zero'dout peoples accounts for voting 0 on everything.
Those were the days... Oh wait, I didn't even know about Newgrounds back then.
Damn I missed it. I was too busy in the hunger games chat spamming and flooding.
I like how you've been banned at least once there so far.

Happy Easter, even though I shouldn't give any damn about this day. On the other hand, we got a better week. Is that because of Easter or did I miss something?Well, aside from making a big fuss about the newest member of the top 10, then I don't think you missed anything...
Hey, unless someone finally takes over Afro_Stud or I get knocked down a rank, I only mention milestones as normal. I'm only two ranks away from falling off the top 25 so it'll be interesting to see who takes #25 from me. The next thing I'll be wondering is when I'll off the top 50 for B/P. I'm sure we'll be in the 2020s by the time that happens.
3 points away from a 50 per day week. Do I regret submitting points, as the cookie cutters that are going to pass anyway get a 0 from me? Never.
Consider the fact that you've done well to vote fairly as well as obtaining many points.

Maybe Tom should add in some new ones. Or at least for each additional 20,000 you get past supreme commander you get an added 10% of voting power. It would give the real die-hards something tangible to work on outside of this list.
I find this to be a tough one. While it's good to give old users a new challenge, further expanding the B/P ranks may not be the best ideas when we have enough problems with it already. It's nearly impossible to exploit the EXP system (well, I'd like to see how it can even be abused in any way) since all you can do is vote on five submissions a day and nothing else. That to me is why it was easy enough to revamp the level system and put the EXP requirement to a point where not even Pimp was anywhere close to reaching it at the time. There was the abuse with EXP referrals but as we all know, that was taken away long ago before I even registered on the site.
