It will be only a matter of time before I reach 10000 posts, but I still have not convinced myself whether I should go for 10000 reviews. There is no point leaving 50 two-liners per day just for the sake of reviewing. :S

I'm going to push the next update to Sunday. I was in London over the weekend and only have enough stat updating energy for the B/P list tonight.

Will we have Art reviews in this list? Also, what about the hexalist as well, will that be up? I've got to make some time to get myself up there with the big movers.

Personally, I do not think that medal points are nearly as important as the other five stats. Thus, they should not be added to the list. At least I will never allow myself to miss a single b/p point because I am too occupied with games that have medal points. :/

It's a good thing I have two separate lists for the time being. I'm sure after a while I'll make medals official, even if it won't please you. I feel medals should be as important as the other stats since you are earning them by playing flash games and we should highly encourage stats that involve you playing flash games (yes, there's movies with medals but they're a minority).

Well I think it's an awesome addition to the Pentalist. I feel like playing a game to the best of your ability is at least as important than playing it for 2 minutes and cast a vote it. Medal games are starting to become a pretty big deal on this site so why not include it, it's not like those extra points make a huge impact on the total score on the Hexalist. I mean, it's not the amount of points that count for the list, it's the total amount of medals you have. There are maybe 7k medals out there (including 0 pointers), and the #1 b/p'er (Afro_Stud) has over 170k points.

I don't mind if you don't like it, I just want Bahamut to know there are people who really appreciate this extra stat on the list. =)

I just hope the top of the hexalist won't be dominated by medal point gainers because there are so many easy medals around. With games like Achievement Unlocked 2, it's pretty easy to get a quick 40-50 stat points for this list.

Right now there aren't many of such games around yet, but as we get more and more of them in the future the medal stat might become a little bit 'cheap' compared to other stats.

That won't happen. Medals have been around for almost 2 years now (really close actually), and the guy with the most medals has ~5500 of them. Games like AU2 are really rare, and even those games don't give you more points than, let's say, b/p'ing for an entire game. I don't think collecting medals will ever be faster than voting on new flash. Having said that, both a Pentalist and a Hexalist are fine by me, I'm just happy to see an update every once in a while. =)

Medals need to be put on the 'main' list the moment 10,000 medals become available to collect.

It's still a stat officially. Better brush up on your gaming skills DoD.

The problem I have with it is that it isn't run by the site. Users have control over if medals are impossible and grueling or if you can get hundreds of medals in a few minutes. Something about that doesn't flow well.

I must look at it in a different light. To me, collecting 10,000 medals is more of a challenge and a fun one to boot.

YES!!!! YES!!!!!! </M. Bison>

Welcome to Bahamut's 36th pentalist update. Yes, that's gfox's favourite number but unfortunately, his lucky number didn't bring us luck here. Due to a recent glitch where everyone temporarily lost all their medals and have to earn a new medal to regain them all, the hexalist update is called off for this month. Heh, good thing the hexalist is only in beta right now.

You could say it brought HIM (i.e. ME) luck, if not you/them, though, since I'm not that big a fan of the hexalist (for now). #;-}>

But yes, only beta, after all.

LEAVING: SlashFirestorm requested a B/P reset a while ago and is only down to a single 10k stat. Hopefully he returns to the list someday.

Awww. Why did he want a b/p reset, anyway?

NEXT UPDATE: 15th May 2011

You were gonna post the 37th update 1 day after my 1st wedding anniversary. What a dreadful present, thank you thank you THANK YOU for delaying the update a week. #;-}>

iscrulz is gonna pass me soon, and that'll be #20. And soon after I'll probably have to get used to not being in the top 20 anymore, but the top 25. Fair enough. And after that, there's slipping to #36 to look forward to, and #42... but ugh, 37 in between.... and after 42... egad. Nothing but horribleness lies beyond the top 50, like with any list. Though at least there's no official top 50 pentalist on NG. #;-}>

I can't do anything about falling in the blam listings, very little about falling in the save listings and the overall b/p listings... but I CAN very well do something about falling here. I either need to post more or review more... or medal more, once that's a stat. I MUST DO THIS. I must. ;_;

Ah, you're cool with the idea now? I remember talking to you about adding medals to the lists and you weren't keen on the idea. Maybe the fact that I've made an individual list to count medals instead of shoving them to the standard updates makes both parties happy?

I'd say that could be part of it... which brings up an interesting idea I actually had from reading your exchange with DoD later on in the thread, so I'll return to the thought in a bit (very bottom of the post, actually, 'twas the most recent thing I wanted to comment on, it turns out).

Sexalist? That just sounds perverted.

That was my point, you silly dense-acting dragon. :D

And besides, I thought Hexalist was a name to use considering Pentalist means five and a pentagon has five sides. A hexagon has six sides so I felt it was appropriate to call it thew Hexalist.

Yes, yes, but of course. But you do realise they could have just as easily called it the Sexagon when they were naming it. They were just a buncha prudes back then, that's all. #;-}>

I think you know what I think about adding medals to the list already. I'd prefer each of the review types be given their own column and jump all the way to an Octolist or whatever.
Octalist? Good god no! If you really wanted reviews to be separated, we'll eventually have a ninth stat for whenever the Lit. Portal is launched. I don't want the list to be swarmed with individual review stats and I'm sure neither would the majority be happy with that.

Hm. Might make an interesting reviews-only list type, though.

Oh, and if we had EIGHT different stats for the list, it would be Octalist, not Octolist. Even Jack Black defines octagons and there's always an A in octagon, octalist, Octavarium, whatever.

Yet it's Octopus, not Octapus, so clearly both prefixes exist, damnit!

If you're going to add medals (even just count, not "points/score") then you might as well add things like "flash/audio/etc. portal submission count" as well.
Counting submission count is even worse than adding review responses. Making a stat for submission count would do the site no favours.

Well, I'm definitely glad to hear you say that, at least.

If I checked correctly it was BaronVonBadGuy on the 3rd of October 2010 update.

It's quite a rare achievement still. Since gfoxcook's last update three years ago, only eight more people have become quadlisted on top of the sixteen we already had back then. But before 2007 it was even more rare since there were only six quadlisted users at that point.

Anyway, I'll probably be joining the quadlisted ranks as well later this year. Can't wait :)

Good ol' quadlisted status. Expanding the list columns is only gonna decrease the allure of it, though, but... then again, I did that myself to triplelisters and quadlisters when I moved the list from 3x to 4x and to 5x... so, it's only right that the process happen again. THE MORE STATS, THE MERRIER. That's what I tell myself so I don't bitch too much at Bahamut about all the new review types and the medals and all. :)

Right now, skiller12 has over 4.6k medals. We've had the medal system for over 2 years now so at this rate it'll be another 2 years until we get someone with 10k medals. Still more doable than reviews methinks.

Hahah. So true. I can see myself getting to 10,000 medals (being at 50ish now) if I started using the portal more than I do now, even if nowhere near as much as I did in '03 and '04.... but I can't ever see myself getting to 10,000 reviews (being at 750ish now). 1,000 will be hard enough to do someday. lol, "someday." Even the way I talk about that stat speaks volumes itself.

Well, that's a quirky stat - my 36th Blams update and your 36th Pentalist update. Nice work.

Quirky? More like GODLY, am I right?

A scant 48 points adrift of Denvish this time around and that will launch me into the top 10 for stat whores on Newgrounds. I guess that I'd better get back to Flash reviewing again, to get me above the 2,000 marker and onwards from there to new heights. I keep saying that I will and then I get all lackadaisical about it, which is never a good thing. Mind you, of the 10 people above me, only illuminate has more reviews than me, so here's hoping.

See, even a super-reviewer like Coop isn't to 2000 yet, and he got to 1000 ages ago, or so it feels.

Since it wouldn't increase stat pull time, you could always make a hexa (and beyond) list and then also a "classic" pentalist. Just post both files separately, and boom. Everyone's happy.

Just a thought. I get the feeling DoD cares more than I do, but figured I'd put that out there.

Oh well, for now we don't really have to worry about it as it will still be a long time before medals will be about as easy to collect as BP. For the rest I'm okay with the Hexalist.

I just hope Bahamut will also continue posting updates of the Pentalist after medals have become an 'official stat'. Even if it's only twice a year or somehting.

From where you are right now, medals will be by far the easiest stat to boost if you play the right games. As I've already stated above, try playing Achievement Unlocked 2. That should be an easy 40-50 points, 60 if you decide to play the game to the end.

Sounds like a sweet idea.

I know Aci6 was fiddling around with a total reviews list recently. This might make a good suggestion. I'd count 1,000 reviews as a rank upgrade though, not 10,000.

It's quite a rare achievement still. Since gfoxcook's last update three years ago, only eight more people have become quadlisted on top of the sixteen we already had back then. But before 2007 it was even more rare since there were only six quadlisted users at that point.

Anyway, I'll probably be joining the quadlisted ranks as well later this year. Can't wait :)
Good ol' quadlisted status. Expanding the list columns is only gonna decrease the allure of it, though, but... then again, I did that myself to triplelisters and quadlisters when I moved the list from 3x to 4x and to 5x... so, it's only right that the process happen again.

True. I do suppose we're going to see more and more triplelisted and quadlisted users in the feature with the entries Experience, Saves, Blams and Medals. Although Blams are very tough to get nowadays, so maybe it's only fair that newer users get a better chance to become triplelisted.

THE MORE STATS, THE MERRIER. That's what I tell myself so I don't bitch too much at Bahamut about all the new review types and the medals and all. :)

True. Fortunately I can actually see myself getting 10,000 medals someday. Probably pretty soon compared to other users. I'm already at about 2,000 while I only play a medal game about once or twice a week.

Pentalisted status on the Hexalist would still be awesome.

From where you are right now, medals will be by far the easiest stat to boost if you play the right games. As I've already stated above, try playing Achievement Unlocked 2. That should be an easy 40-50 points, 60 if you decide to play the game to the end.

I think many users can't imagin just how huge the number "10,000" is. It is not and never will be easy to collect 10,000 medals, let alone collect them all in one day. Even if we have Achievement Unlocked 1, 2, 3, ... 10 each with 60 medals. That would only be 600 medals, then you still need 9,400 medals until you hit the big 10k. And mind you, you have to play all 10 games until the end to collect the 60 medals, that's very time consuming, even with easy games like AU.
A game with 60 medals is just a drop in the ocean, really.

Also I cannot see users "spamming" medals, just to get on this list. Right now, no one of the users that are near the top of the medal points list posted in here, so I don't think they are even interested in this list at all. Of course that might change in the future, but right now I don't think this list has too much meaning to them.

Well hello there, gentlemen.

I'd just like to point out how lovely it is that Wi/Ht? member #36 (:::nods and winks meaningfully at Auz:::) and Wi/Ht? member #38 (:::tips cap to Haggard:::) have both posted here in the pentalist topic right before Bahamut posts the update # that shall not be named, and just happens to be BRACKETED BY YOUR TWO WI/HT? NUMBERS.

Freaky-deaky, Captain Peaky.

But perhaps a good antidote to the coming horribleness. See you guys once update #38 is posted! #;-}>

Well, I fully agree that 10,000 Medals is still a great achievement that shouldn't be ignored. I'm just trying to point out that gathering medals doesn't have to require that much more effort than gathering BP.

The thing is: With BP you are limited to the amount of submissions that get uploaded. Sure, clicking the vote button might only require a second, but then you have to wait for 5, 10, 15, 30 minutes before the next submission is uploaded. With medals you are merely limited to the total amount of medals available, but this number keeps on increasing and new medal games get submitted more and more rapidly.

If you spend a whole day BP hunting, you'll end up with ... 70, 80, 100 BP maybe if you're lucky. If you however spend a whole medal hunting, you can probably get five times that amount if you do it efficiently. Efficiently as in: Don't bother with the difficult, time consuming medals and perhaps play several games at the same time if possible (if games involve a lot of waiting time, for example Toss the Turtle type of games).

So basically, Medal collecting might require a bit more effort, but it can require much less time than boosting any other stat. Now I'm not against the Hexalist. I think that it should be made, but this is just one point of criticism I have against including medals.

I'd argue that it takes considerably longer to get medal points than B/P points though. I've invested considerably more time in playing medal games over the last 2 years than I have B/Ping, yet I have collected fewer than 3000 medals and something like 20,000 B/P points. Not even close! While you can theoretically work through all of the medal games in turn and pick up a mountain of points in any one day, whilst being limited to 70 or 80 B/P points in the same time, the fact is that most medal points require much more effort to achieve than that, and only plucking out the easiest would currently leave you with only 1000 or so medals. Well short of 10,000.

Looking at the top medal gainers list the most anyone gets in one week is around 8000 points, which is likely only a few hundred medals, and only achievable for people that haven't played medal games in months. I spent two weeks recently picking up medals that I had missed in a 3 month quiet spell and collected fewer than 500 medals total- not dissimilar to the amount of B/P I collected in the same two weeks.

Pentalist Update #37 ----- Hexalist Beta Update #4

Welcome to Bahamut's 37th/4th beta 2x10k update. Although it wasn't stated there was an erorr for this stat, art reviews are now reavailable for the 10k lists. Unfortunately, with the way the stat pulling program works and the glitch one part of the program has, reviews have to be pulled at separate times so if you think you have a few less reviews than you should have on the updates, it's because they were pulled the night before. I'll have to approach byteslinger about this glitch but I fear by the time she fixes it for me the redesign will be launched and that might cause some problems. On the brighter side of news, the hexalist is updated this time around!

SEVEN NEW Entries: Welcome to Balazeal, Canas, DeathW1ng, dropy, Shinichiru, Super-Toilet and virturalrift. Canas entered with a combination of 10k EXP and 10k posts while the rest entered with 10k EXP and 10k saves.

FAREWELL: We have lost yet another user on the 10k lists. Grammer recently had his account deleted (most likely by request) and has left the list updates as well.

Status Changes: NeMeSiSM66 (lol) from 2x10k to 3x10k.

NEXT UPDATE: 12th June 2011

I'm glad we can help you through this time of darkness.

I hear you and I can follow your logic. But: You are limited in "medal gain" as well, by the number of available medal games out there. It's not like there's a new medal game coming out every day (even though sometimes we get more than one new medal game in a single day). If you have played all the medal games then you have to wait for another game to be released.
The medal system is in effect now for 2 years, according to NG Logs the user with the most medals has 5488 medals. 5488 points in 2 years is hardly enough to dominate the hexalist, even though it may be the easiest stat to push, if you haven't collected any medals so far

With medals included I am ranked one spot higher than without medals. YAY!
I haven't gained too many medals since last update, though. I should try to reach 1,000 medals before the next update.

FAREWELL: We have lost yet another user on the 10k lists. Grammer recently had his account deleted (most likely by request) and has left the list updates as well.

I noticed a loss in posts lately. So maybe I posted in some topics Grammer created and lost the posts when the account got deleted.

Thanks for both of the updates. Looks like I've reached the top 10 for both, which is great. Denvish gets a double Coopitration, if that is even a word, though I'm sure in 6 months or so, Greg will agree, it sounds HAWT!

Next up, 3,333 Total Reviews, which I should be able to get in a day or two, dependant upon commitment, but I'll get there.

Well both of you make good points as well. We'll just see what the future brings. For now (and probably the next few years) it's probably not gonna be a problem.

25 | 0 | *** | Auz | 106,296 | +1920

Looks like I parked myself right behind Idiot-Finder and I do always gain slightly more than him on every update, so that's one I'm expecting to overtake next month. Phantom is also within sight, so I expect to see a +2 before my name.

Hexalist Beta Update #4

23 | +1 | *** | Auz | 108,234 | +3516

Here I have already passed Idiot-Finder, hence the +1. Oddly enough, Phantom does seem to be an avid medal collector while he didn't do much else on NG last month. Oh well, I still gained way more than him so a +1 on the next update is very likely.

Good to see I'm still going up on these lists. The next bunch of people are all in the 110,000-116,000 range and most of them haven't gained all that much. I should easily get into the top 20 and by the end of the year I could be near XwaynecoltX.

Thanks for the updates Bahamut!

Gained a good 17 ranks this time around.

10,900 3,008 14,230 17,615 424 46,177

Nice little boost I seem to have gotten myself and I now have more than 45,000 total stats. I also seem to consistently be one of the top gainers gaining +2,000 stats time after time. Hold on to your butts.

Hmmmm....glitch? please PM with the details, Bahamut and I will do my best to fix it ASAP. As for the redesign messing with the pulling proggie - yeah, I expect that - but I will be on top of it right away, as it will screw up ALL of my stat programs, especially NG Logs and the EGB and NGPD auto-updaters.

On the brighter side of news, the hexalist is updated this time around!

Yay!
Oddly enough, I am rank #40 on BOTH lists. Guess all those gamers who have mucho medals are generally a lower experience level than I am, so those medal points didn't affect some of the highr ranks. I have less than 1,000 medals, and I really am not collecting them - they are incidental to my testing / playing with Flash entries.

SEVEN NEW Entries: Welcome to Balazeal, Canas, DeathW1ng, dropy, Shinichiru, Super-Toilet and virturalrift. Canas entered with a combination of 10k EXP and 10k posts while the rest entered with 10k EXP and 10k saves.

7 more users entering the "life? what life?" list...hehehe....like I should talk.
