Also- why is it changing so quickly? I just saw Lily go from level 1 to level 99 in less than a minute.

Lily- did you use the bishop->identify->(9) cheat?

The system was recalculating them; everyone started at 1 until it figured out how many posts you have, your reputation, number of people on your friends list, threads started, infractions, etc.

Phrost
5th November 10, 12:06 PM
They're going to be re-recalculated soon, and we'll add all sorts of entertaining fuckery to this.

Phrost is just wanting to make this more like Starship Troopers, I guess.

Lily was promoted from Private to Lieutenant all within the span of a 2 hr. movie just cuz she didn't die.

I am amused that Phrost has implemented yet another nerdishly dystopian system of whuffie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whuffie), complete with little ribbons and awards, ugly progress bars, and other eye-shattering fuckwittery. It violates both of Tufte's warnings about the visual display of quantitative information, as it contains both ugly decorations and lies.

I have very little idea what is obscure and what is common. I was raised in the academic equivalent of a Creedish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivor_%28Chuck_Palahniuk_novel%29) family. I can translate Old Norse written in Elder Futhark (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elder_Futhark) (moar like Elder FUBAR, amirite?) and read RFCs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Request_for_Comments) for meaning, but I can't follow most pop culture references without help from Google.

However, I have gradually learned what is obscure to the great world and what is not, and I have learned to hyperlink my geekery. I miss a term once in a while, but I do try. I do not expect a reciprocal effort on the part of others to explain pop culture references to me. How are you to know what I failed to learn?

The existing awards are just what came with the system out of the box and will be made more... "Sociocide-appropriate" as time permits.

This system, in part, replaces the custom tags like we use on Bullshido so adding it here serves a few purposes; one of which being as a sandbox, another being the epic potential for shenanigans especially as we start getting new members.
