Can we get a FAQ explaining the award system for Experience? I would be happy to write it up and submit it if I knew what the awards were.

I think you get 18 points for a blog post, 10 for posting to an existing thread, 10 for making a new thread and 100 for referring someone to the site. But that is about all I can figure so far. And i am not certain about that.

Let me know if I can help.

You know more than me, michael. Only thing [i think] i know is that each post is worth 3 points, but don't quote me on this.

If i could make a suggestion to Farcaster, i would suggest more titles. That's always a fun thing. Like a title per level. Would be very cool.

<BTW Farcaster, get back to me at your convenience, i still have a great idea i want to share with you.>

Fair enough - but what's the bid deal with getting XP?

Exactly. Michael is quite preoccupied with the whole experience point issue. You'd think he'd be upset about the fact that off topic threads don't earn any experience points.

Yes, I noticed I dropped a level - meh!

I dropped 3, no big deal, I just thought something was awry on the system. But considering 90% of my posts are off topic, I wont be gaining levels any time soon. I imagine I'll be level 15 for years to come at the rate I post in other forums.

I am very excited about xps and levels! It is my second favorite thing about gaming!

I love xps!

I just post to share my thoughts it wouldn't matter to me if the leveling went away I'll keep still posting.

I figure about 5-10 out of near 10,000 members take it seriously. For everyone else, it's just good fun.

We have 10'000 people? 0.o I wonder how many of them are active?

I know I just find it cool being an adventurer now and not a noobie. I wanna be a Hero....I like titles!

Actually at the time of this post, we are at 9,750 members. Just 250 more to reach that 10,000 mark. So,everyone be sure to tell you gaming friends to come join the ranks.

Looks as though we will make 10,000 members by October. Very cool, indeed.

Congrats Farcaster!

oh, members can't grant other members xp here on pnpg if that is what you were getting at, i was just making a joking reference from my title-status back to how Powers and other extremely powerful entities are able to grant/transfer xp to followers via one method or another. maybe thoth could set up a poll or thread for people to suggest additional titles. ^^

That's a geat idea, nijineko. I will start one up tomorrow if someone else doesn't beat me to it (which is cool). Very cool idea, indeed.

I'd do it today, but i am under the wire with papers and all.

Addendum: I'm thinking that Farcaster should start this one. I, for one, would love more titles offered up for the levelers; and i say this without bias for my title will never change. I am already the God of the underworld, undead, and necromancy. The Gods hate me; demons and devils obey and fear me, and best of all, my harem of succubus babes adore me.

Ahh, so that's what happened to my levels :) I'd been wondering. Also, I must make an effort to get one of those t-shirts I saw Farcaster twittering about. :)

Edit: I used to know what points you got for what, Michael, but that was back in ... April? Things have changed a bit since then, it seems. Congrats on your transcendance above levels, Thoth ;)

The dreaded 10,000 - sounds like a great Greek book - er - geek book?

Congrats to Farcaster and his incredible site.

The last parentheses in your link doesn't work there cigamnogard.

It's okay the link still works - doesn't it?

No, it takes me to a page that says there's no such thing as Ten Thousand (Greek ... without the last parentheses. If you type it in though, it still works. :P

Farcaster can change the XP system every week if he likes, but I will still find a way to abuse the system, just like Arch licky Thoth...mwuhahahahahahaha. :D
