    Michael,

    The forum known as "General Chatter" has been split. See this thread for more details http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12633. As to P&PG experience totals, the new Off-Topic forum is not included in the post counts for experience calculation.

    Wouldn't bother me a bit if I lost every xp I have here. Is just a number that says I have been around a bit. Still, there is a start date that kind of gives that away. Personally speaking, I think those who get xp from off topic posts pretty much laugh at the xp they get from it. Just gaming the system if done for the wrong reasons. Chill dude, it's not a big deal, we been prepped about it for quite a while.

    Thumbs up

    I for one applaud Farcaster and feel that his design was a good one I have seen the post count people on many fourms post +1, me too, and so on just to rack up the count.

    Ahh, I had no idea that there was forewarning. I am really new here still.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Dark and mrken. And while I contributed a lot of the posts to those non-sense threads, it was never really about the exp pts. but rather about interacting with other people and generally having a good time. Trust me, I have spent many hours so far laughing at my computer and I would gladly do so again for no experience. That being said though, I look forward to a rapid decline in the posts people put up solely for exp. pts.

    I understand the arguments an the reasons, but it was a rude surpise as I didn't understand what was happening. Where and when did this warning take place? I didn't see anything in the news posts on the home tab. The splittting of general chatter and off topic was mentioned, but not that it would affect xp. If there was a warning about this, could someone post a link to it. It was a rude surpise, precisly because it was a surprise.

    We will never understand the Gods for we have tried to do so for 1000's of years and failed. Even me, a Lich that has lived over 5000 years(the true number kept secret), and even I, with my great wisdom and intelligence has never even came close to having a clue.

    I will admit this, i never cared for the realization that i am just a pawn on their grand chessboard in the sky. This is why i cursed them the only why i knew how, by becoming an Arch Lich. They will never get my soul, nevaar!

    I do feel for you Genesplicer. I don't know about exp point totals, but as far as levels go I believe you were hit the hardest by this. And I never saw any of it coming. Sascha I think was hit pretty hard as well. Both of you posted pretty heavily in those 'non-sense' threads. But maybe you'll consider taking up a play by post now. Just a thought.

    I am trying to figure out what the xp awards for various activities are. I know you get some for posting on threads and posting new threads and blogs. I also know you get some for referrals.

    I just got 18 points for making a blog entry. I will check my total after this post and see what I get for it. this is fun like exploring a dungeon to see what is around the next corner. I wonder if i will run into any wandering monsters.

    ***Edit***
    LOL, ok this post will score zero points because it is in Off-Topic. i will try another thread.

    Pretty sure my attention span's too short for anything but the occasional sardonic comment

    What? No love for Thoth? He lost over 12000 xp. All i got to say is next time you guys pray for clerical spells, Thoth might just be an ass about it. Yeah, i'm evil that way.

    Sorry Thoth, I realize you were hit hard as well. But relatively speaking...well you didn't lose two thirds (?) of your exp. like Genesplicer. Still, I realize that's not much of a consolation.

    I never cared anyway, but i feel cursed at level 28. LOL

    I'm having a string of bad luck here so wish me luck. We just got evacuated due to the raging fires so it looks like the house and everything i own will be going up in flames. Sucks to be me.
