their points went? Are you f-ing kidding me?
This has been happening for a couple weeks now and I've gotten enough email about it to provide a front-page explanation: points have started to expire, which they do after a year. This is not functionality I put in intentionally but I might keep it around since it seems to make sense. But that's what's happening. If you get a snarky email about losing super powers but haven't done anything to warrant it, that's what's going on.
A comment revamp is coming and I don't want to touch anything on the site until that's up and going, so please bear with us.
Well, how else can you gauge your MGoPopularity? I'm more concerned with getting the 100,000 points so I can get my lunch with Brian.
You smelt it, you dealt it.
Whoever denied it, applied it.
think this is hilarious as well! Also, you using 'f-ing' instead of the commonly accepted 'effing' should be noted.
I might feel differently after I have been around more than a year though.
- Every year, on the day Fall practice begins, post the current top ten point totals (maybe excluding front-pagers?). Include a link to the previous year, and brief notes on any changes to how points were handled (for the MGoHistorians).
- Instead of having people go down to zero, halt point attrition at twenty. That way, people who have earned the ability to post threads can always drop back in to immediately post something newsworthy if they come across it, without having to go through the waiting period again.
I was going to buy a Winnebago and retire to Florida on the points I worked so hard to accumulate. MGoBlog owes it to us to follow up on its fiduciary obligations. Where's Paul Volcker when you need him?
So what you're saying is that on November 5th I'll lose about 2,000 points? Meh, whatevs.
But if I lose my points I'll go into MGoForeclosure!
Dude, just Mgoshortsell. And maybe you should have thought about that before you bought your MgoMcMansion.
We don't need no stinkin' POINTS!!
...for going for the obvious.
Thank God! I thought I was losing points because:
A. I was apparently bashing LC yesterday
b. I thought Roger Moore was the best James Bond
Come on...everybody knows Timothy Dalton was the best Bond.
my tag-line speaks for itself....please fix....soooon!
I'm pretty sure I'm pointless anyway.
Now I know why there has been so much useless blah blah blah comments posted, it's because bloggers are trying to raise their point levels in case they lose some points. That is sad. Before, I would only speak when I had something to say, but now I need to be like everyone else I guess...more blah.
Mr. Voice of Reason,
I believe we "comment" because we have...comments. Apologies if they're not useful to your life. I don't think anyone's crying too hard over lost points.
Guy who hasn't even been here a year, who only has 51 points (as of this writing), fretting over teh points, teh points, teh points. I guess you are being like everyone else then! Please continue to acquire points by mindlessly posting drivel and getting hammered by the MGoCommunity, thus losing more MGoPoints than you would have had if you simply kept your keyboard shut.
Oh wait, how many points do I have? Dammit! (I almost wrote 'would of' above just as grammar nazi bait, but couldn't bring myself to it.)
So what you're saying is I should probably go ahead and retire at the end of September?
BRIAN'S SHAVING POINTS.
I'll have zero points and.....I'LL BE LIVING IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER.
What will happen to my self esteem?!?!
This is a disaster. Not only people's MGoSelfEsteem but MGoCredibility will suffer. What will we do?
Mr. Cook should have waited for 2012 for points to start expiring. It would have fit the whole end-of-the-world theme much better :)
Meet at the MGoBoard at midnight! We must throw off our shackles and demand the MGoPoints that are rightfully ours!
Stand Up To The MGoMan!
Or should that be no points, no peace?
I am so confused...
You want my points do ya? Well you well have to pry them from my cold dead hands! You are so lucky I didn't go all caps lock on this bitch.
Wow! I have the opportunity to lose even MORE points! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!
I dread 45 minutes after the hour because I know there is a good chance my Mgopoints are gonna take a hit.
Yayyyy! Old thread to post in, with which I shall gain... points!!!
