No one told me.

I was actually just about to ask about roleplaying but then I read all the replies and my question was answered :) Cause I was wanting to start an Elder Scrolls RP but I wanted to double check this announcement first. Thanks! :D

A modest proposal.

Certain threads on this forum should be officially designated as being "brain dead".

And any post made in said threads with the BD designation should NOT be counted in you total of WP posts.

Things like "count to a million by one". You should be free to post in them, but any post you make does not augment your WP total of posts (which is the sole reason anyone participates in things as brain dead as "counting to a million by one" -to up their total of posts).

This will give an incentive for folks to up their game and create and or participate in games more imaginative than "counting to million by one".

the first page or so of that million thread contained more actual content than it does now, with translations and binary. and images. which makes sense, cause you're dealing with smaller numbers. would be a pain to do so with the tens of thousands.

the rules do say that a user's post count can be reset if administrators (of which, there's only alex right now) feel a user posts just to post. which to me seems more like a sort of threat, or a wink and a nudge not to mindlessly raise post count. or an incentive, like you said. though most of those who post there make perfectly legit, worthwhile posts elsewhere.

i'm awful at math so be warned, but a quick calculation says we won't reach 1,000,000 until 2230! 8O

There may be members for whom the steadily increasing post count is the only indicator they exist. It would be utterly cruel to reset it for whatever reason. Something similar applies to those so-called BD counting threads: they may be the only way for some members to communicate, to feel that they belong somewhere. It would be utterly cruel not to let their post count increase when they post in those threads.

As for quizzes, My economics teacher used it for cheking students level of mastering knowledge. Now I want to go the same way. It was not very convinient because of lack of devices. If you were a student, what would you prefer? The tool on device ( http://stringlearning.com ) or usual testing on paper?
