EXP update #67 is now available!

Hello all and welcome to the 67th EXP update. We wind down to a quieter update after last time. The Grounds Gold System has finally passed 5,000 days! That's all the news for this update.

NEXT UPDATE: 13th October 2013

I still have the files on my laptop so if I find the right place to store older updates, I can do just that.

The best option in my opinion would be to remove all the updates, except for one or maybe two updates each year, for example each year's special update and then the update 6 months later. That way you won't miss out on too much, as the largest gap will be 6 months. I'd rather have two updates from each year than twelve from two years ago.

I was tempted to do something along the lines of that but I'd rather just restrict it to the last two years or something. Considering my plans over the next few months, I'm not sure if it's really worth moving stuff around.

Or keep them, but don't give them a ranking on the list. It makes the ranks below those accounts inaccurate compared to the official NG rankings.

My problem with removing #0 rank accounts is how any of them can possibly return at any point. I will only remove accounts from the list if they have either had their EXP wiped out (this hasn't happened on many occasions and even then they weren't highly ranked users) or their accounts have been deleted. While those deactivated accounts don't add up to the official stat rankings, I like to show all the users with a high amount of points no matter what.

And here's a little gem I dug up, just for the occasion:

Either Pimp's name was something else back then or he once had a rank much lower than what he's had for almost a decade. :P

Wow, I've never seen so many inactive high-level accounts before in my life!

It seems like only those who are closest to level 60 are still actively depositing.

I never really thought of it that way but now that I look at them closer, a fair amount of them have been slipping up. I won't say some of them will soon hang it up but different users eventually stop. It may be hard to think of it now but at some point I'll most likely stop and be like all those other dead accounts. I'm certainly not going to do this for the rest of my life but then again, I have my doubts on how long this site will be around for...

Make that level 56. I signed up roughly half a year after you and only recently I managed to get myself in the top 100.

I like it when I'm at the top of the levels that I'm on. However, most of the time that means my updates were a few days off from when I level up.

I understand the inconsistency with the NG ranks and the EXP update ranks can be frustrating to some but I've got my own policies. If someone else were to do this list and had the deactivated accounts removed I'd be fine with that. It wouldn't be too difficult to do that whilst keeping them on the spreadsheet incase they ever returned. The simple formula to do that would be to check if each user has the 0 rank and if they are their EXP will be shown as 0 on the spreadsheet.

Either Pimp's name was something else back then or he once had a rank much lower than what he's had for almost a decade. :P

I believe it was something like only 7 EXP a day you could earn from those times but if that was the case Pimp should have been at least somewhere high after a hundred days or so. I think later on you were able to get 11 EXP a day but after a while it came to just getting 10 a day from the system we've all been adapting to now. I can't be sure when exactly the last change happened but I'm sure it happened sometime in 2002.

No... You're already on the list. The thread title is a deceiving one since originally the EXP list was limited to the top 2,000 by a different owner. However, my lists count anyone from 8,000 EXP and above.

Slowly closing in on where I want to be - another rank or two could be available to me inside the month, as I close in on a malfunctioning machine (gfoxclock) and slowly chip away at the slender lead that Biofreak42069 has over me.

Looking further up the road, southy and Dekathos both seem to have stopped at around 800 points clear of me, so a few months of constant depositing will get me there.

Soon, the Exp updates will be more numerous than the people in front of me (86)

Thanks for the update, Murray

EXP update #68 is now available!

Hello all and welcome to the 68th EXP update. Halloween time has come around again and we have the special icons once more. Always good to have an update to time it well with them, although we do get a whole month with the Halloween icons which is plenty of time.

There is unfortunately some bad news for us all. I will soon be retiring my business with the EXP updates in a few months time. Reasons for this are decline of interest in Newgrounds as well as wanting to focus more on what's going on in the real world. There will be two more updates and when I get to the 70th one in December, that will be it whether someone new will volunteer to manage the updates or not.

Now that I've got this out of the way, I'm going back to playing Pokemon X!

NEXT UPDATE: 10th October 2013 (but may need to push it by a week due to real life events)

I wouldn't mind taking over this list if you haven't picked someone else yet. This has been my favorite stat list throughout my stay on Newgrounds, so I would really like to see it going on. Sure, I'm slowly getting ancient as well, but with my mod duties and my obsession with the top 50 on this list, I don't see myself going anywhere. Just let me know how you feel about it!

I know this time has been coming for quite a while now and it's totally understandable. I'm maxed with the Hexalist and B/P updates, so hopefully Nijsse can do the job! Also, I would suggest getting in touch with Cyberdevil about hosting for the EXP list, if you do end up taking over.

Now that I've got this out of the way, I'm going back to playing Pokemon X!

I played a newer Pokemon game recently and I gotta say, it's nowhere near as good as the old ones. Seems like they're really out of ideas and just making Pokemon out of anything they see -like, hey I got me a keyboard Pokemon and a monitor Pokemon! :D

Thanks for the update.

I gained 230 Exp while others gained 280... that means I slipped more than once. And I think I didn't deposit yesterday. Ok, that's just how things are at the moment. Newgrounds/Depositing has been a part of my life for quite some time now (since 2005), but right now other things just are more important to me, so I do forget to deposit every now and then. There once was a time where I simply couldn't understand why some users "forgot" to deposit, but now I am one of those users myself, heh.

Ah, yeah, the icons... didn't realize the fact that they appear in the listing was as odd a phenomenon as it was until you mentioned it... pretty neat. 57 looks way better than 60 though...

A shame, but an inevitable one I suppose! Glad to see there are people willing to continue the list though.

I can't seem to complete any of those games. After finishing the storyline motivation for collecting the remaining critters just eventually fades away... and they keep adding more! :(

I've decided to make the next update on 3rd November just so it's not being put aside by other events that I have for the following two weeks of that. So update #69 will be a 3-weeker while the last one will be a 5-weeker and I think for a final update the slightly bigger gap looks better for a send off.

You and Painbringer are some of the users who I'd like to see take over the list but only one can possibly be the list holder. Seeing as you expressed interest first, I will be approaching you first to go through with what you need to do for the whole update procedure. It's possible that you might find your own ways but I did a step-by-step instruction for Metal-Therapy/Dev started the hexalist update and that helped him so I don't mind doing the same to help you out with these updates.

I did go through some background work to make sure the update was looking all good so other things were bound to be overlooked. I forgot to include the Halloween icons with the writer aura so that meant additional work for the update and I kept messing things up.

Anyway, I hope I'll be level 60 by the time the last update comes.

You'll easily make it on the final update of mine. I wish I stopped at either when I reached the top 100 or getting to level 60 but one was too soon while the other will take far longer than how long I want to keep this up.

And I could potentially take over the list, but it would be on my userpage instead of a dedicated website.

Not sure how you could do it all on your userpage blogs when you've got a character limit set.

The way I look at it, if I lost all motivation to deposit my alts, there's a chance I may lose my interest in depositing my main somewhere down the line. I'll see when the day I slip up with depositing arrives but that's only if it was entirely unintentional. Even to this day I have only missed nine deposits which is something when I've been doing this for nine years now.

No problemo. I don't know what these circumstances are, but if you're no longer in a position to do these updates, feel free to PM me the update procedure (a step-by-step instruction seems best) and be done with it.

EXP update #69 is now available!

Hello all and welcome to the belated 69th EXP update. Several things to note:

• Halloween icons are still hanging around on the site so they still remain here as well.

• This is my second to last update and there is someone in mind that I would like to pass the EXP updates over to so hopefully he can do everything that I did before and perhaps he might be able to put his own twist to additional statistics just like what Dev/Metal-Therapy has done to the B/P and 10k lists that I did. That said, I'll still need to provide a step-by-step guide on how to make these updates for my successor so hopefully I can motivate myself to do that just before I retire.

• 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.

• Another purge had to be done on my EXP updates so only the 4 year special update and onwards are available. However, if Cyberdevil does go ahead with archiving all my updates on his site then you'll get to see everything on his site when that happens. I'm hoping to pass over all the update files to him once I've passed this on to my successor.

Oh... still missing a few deposits every now and then. Too bad, but that's just the way it is. Work is taking up a lot of my time and while I can surf the web freely at work, I often just don't find the time to deposit or there's so much going on around me that I don't want to "get caught" surfing on Newgrounds, heh.
But at least I still gained a rank, so everything's cool.

I've managed to reach Level 57 this morning and looking it over, I'm level (for now) with Biofreak42069. Given a few more days, perhaps I can even eclipse him. southy and Dekathos lurking just above as well, should make easy fodder for the next month and my unending pursuit of the Top 50!

Looking back, I've managed to Coop both gfoxclock and Blitz-Mage over the past month, so I'm almost in the Top 75, now :D
