because (I just want the exp and don't really care about the top ten) attitude may arise and nudge votes off.

for example take the map voting system on tf2, you need to vote but don't care which map... people will spam the first one and so the majority of votes will always be first first one...

but on the other hand, unless its announced loudly, a lot of people wouldn't know about that extra x exp points... so the people who already have a lot of exp and know about it... will just keep increasing that exp gap difference...

i do however feel that the monthly voting should be easier to notice, maybe a "recent notification" to remind you.

I really don't know how I feel about it. One of the best things about the EXP system is that there is only one way to improve your EXP level, and every member gets a daily shot at the 10 pts. I know about the ancient way to earn extra points, but that was 10+ years ago. If there ever was a change to the exp earning system, I would've probably stopped depositing in my less active years. Having said that, if there ever was a decent suggestion for earning extra EXP, it's this one. It's like a bonus for consistent depositing, and I can get on board with that one. I don't think it's THAT unfair if people can't do the monthly vote because they missed some deposits, it's their own responsibility. If a new user registers today and deposits for, lets say, 50 days, would he already be eligible for the monthly vote? If yes, I'm okay with the idea. If not, I'd rather keep the system the way it is.

Ugh. If you visit a website 31 days straight to watch at least 5 movies/games a day, you should be able to pick some decent candidates. You probably have a point though. I vote every month, but 98% of my votes go to medal games, because I've played them from start to finish. I haven't watched/played most of the other submissions.

From what I've heard, they're going to make it a notification via PM.

This bonus exp. incentive can (and probably will) be abused, just like any other stat here. Lets just hope most users take the time to look through the submissions (which are all organized and displayed neatly for your viewing pleasure) and take pride in the votes they cast. I spend enough time in the Portal to have an idea of what my top 2 or 3 will be, before I get to voting, though always take second look as there always seems to be a few that I forget about. :P

I'm okay with the idea, but I think we should make some changes to the monthly voting pool as well if we're going to do this. Of course it wouldn't be fair if everyone outside the top 10,000 doesn't have access to this bonus. In theory, you might get an unfair gap between an elite group of 10,000 who'll always stay on top and an under layer of low experience users who never have a chance of climbing up anymore. I don't think we'll see that much of this in practice, but still...

I would suggest broadening the monthly voting pool to everyone who had a 100% (or 95% or whatever) deposit rate for the month. That way, everyone has a fair shot at obtaining the bonus and daily participation on the site gets rewarded.

Thanks for the update Bahamut!

picked up 1 spot in the past month, which is nice, especially considering the fact that I haven't been that consistent with the depositing as i've been really busy lately.

Response to Top 2,000 Exp Users 2013-02-09 09:30:04


heres the idea you daily deposit 14 times a month (vote 5 times everyday for 14 days) then you get access to the monthly voting then you vote for your submissions then you get the X amount of Bonus EXP ( this ensures that people are active and there is less of a chance of people using alts to rig monthly submissions) its a fair Idea that I think would work well.

I don't think that there's any worry about people rigging these votes, as there is no monetary reward (nor even something marked on the submission) for something like this, it's just a bit of fun.

Sorry, I just don't follow awarding bonus EXP for it.

I agree with LegolaSS. I don't have time to play a bunch of games and movies these days. Even when I was more active I looked at the monthly voting and didn't recognize half the entries. I don't feel qualified to vote unless I'm familiar with every entry, and I really don't have time for that. As long as everyone receives an obvious notification about it (for the record, it took me several days to notice I had new PMs once), then at least that part's fair so that everyone knows it's available, but I have to admit I wouldn't be voting based on merit. There's also the concern of increasing an already large experience gap (newer users -- perhaps they only just reached the age requirement or only heard about the site recently -- are at quite a disadvantage compared to people who have been here for a decade), though I don't recall how the voting pool works.

Anyway, thanks for the update. My deposit rate has gone up 10% since this time two years ago, so that's cool. Can never make up for all the time I stopped depositing though. :/

Nice to hear. I won't have to feel guilty for not taking over other lists as well :P.
290 exp this month so that's perfect. This won't be the case in a month or two when I'll be away. Ah well, I climbed over 50 ranks this month so it's okay.

A Shafted Hotter Punk, Bahamut!

I always enjoy the EXP update, even though I haven't moved a bit for months now. I will be able to climb to #59 in three months, and there's always the off chance Patcoola will shut down (he usually misses 1 or 2 deposits a months). Still many years away from reaching the top 50, but I'm patient.

Another month of perfect depositing as I continue to plow through these mediocre ranks. At least I should be in the top 1,500 by the next update. :\

Have any of you ever have one of your own alts pass you in exp? It's probably one of the most humiliating things that can ever happen to a statwhore. ;_; The account is no longer being deposited for, though, so it shouldn't be too long before I retake it.

Thanks for the update.

Ten deposits missed this month, the first I have missed in nearly half a year. But the trip to New York was well worth it, and it didn't cost me too much as I still gained another rank towards the top 200.

More deposits will be missed this coming month as well as I am off to Scotland towards the end of the month for a few days.

Thanks for the update, Bahamut. I see I failed in reaching 85th before this came along. Oh well.

As for the rest of the stats, thank you to Mr-Trivia, for allowing me to Coop him. Inertius remains an infuriating 2 deposits ahead of me, but I'll catch him eventually. Who I can really focus on now is Myst (13 days to pass) and DaFreak (22 days to pass)

Oh, that and getting my hands on the golden chainsaw. Groovy.

Still smooth sailing on this list for me. Heck, at this rate I'll be in the top 100 around the end of the year.

There's now a line of (mostly) active depositors ahead of me though, so I don't expect such a jump on the next update. Maybe a +2 if I'm lucky.

Thanks for the update Bahamut!

Thanks for the update, Bahamut. Nice work, as always.

Looks like I'm up another two places, thanks to Myst and DaFreak, who have now been Cooped.

Who's on the horizon? Well, Inertius is still two deposits up the road from me, but with Xanadu32, joliet-jane and cristoff all missing some deposits as well, I can focus on them falling back a little and hopefully ending up in my clutches sooner than him. I'll get them, but I wonder how long it will take me to reach the top 50 from here...

Hell, I've not mentioned it for a while, I thought Bahamut could do with me stirring that ole chestnut back up again!

Still putting away 50+ ranks a month, though that probably wont continue for too much longer now... I'll be passed that damn alt I spoke of before by the next update (unless somebody decides to torture me and start depositing for it again just as I'm about to make the pass.) lol I also got a level up coming up here before the next update, so that's something else to look forward to. :)

Another two ranks. The user at #150 currently has 210 Exp more than me, but on the other hand, all users between me and spot 150 are more or less active. So, it will still take a while before I can enter the top 150.

I've thrown a few easter eggs here and there. Have fun with them!

I found one so far. But that was a really easy one, haha.

I thought I was only going to go two ranks up at best, but it turns out I gain three. Awesome! I'm now facing a 150 points gap though and reasonably active depositors on the other side. Maybe I'll gain a rank if NightfallOrchid slows down even further.

I know I was meant to do an update today. I've just been out of the house and felt really knackered by the time I got home. I even pulled the stats from yesterday and even then I still had stuff to do. I'll aim for tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience.
