View Full Version : Thunderfall has fallen?


Thunderfall
Aug 04, 2002, 12:49 AM
Not long ago I had the highest postcount on the forum; now I have dropped to the 4th position on the Top 25 posters list. :cry: Even Dell19 has more posts than me and AoA is catching up quick! :o I better do something soon to maintain my supremacy and regain my former glory! :D

What should I do? :crazyeye:

Post count doesn't matter.......so reset the others!!!

THey must've spammed so I suggest a 5% PC reduction every MONTH!!! AND SPAM! AND POST MORE!!!! AND BAN THEM!!!!

:yeah:

Or just hide postcounts and give youself 99999

Especially the part about hiding postcounts.

Go back to college where you have a faster connection. Don't worry, you will catch back up with me as I don't have as much time as I used to. :)

I voted for post more and spam. I'd really like to see the admin spam here and there. To keep the mods sharp. ;) Perhaps AoA would even ban you. ;) ;)

Do I detect a hint of sour grapes, my dear Thunderfall? :p :D
Tsk. Some people just can't cope with one's irrepressable rise to the top. :D :king:
Only about 250 to go to catch up to the Horse, and he no longer works nights... :mwaha:

My solution to the matter: Reset PH76's pc to zero, and the same for Dell.
Then I will let you catch up, and conspire to keep ye at the top, with me as a loyal second. :D :lol:

Hm, you can either:

A: SPAM! Then you can't stop me without being a hypocrite ;) :D

B: Get over it because it's just a damn postcount [punch] :p

As the BBS kingpin (owner), postcounts are especially unimportant for you. But, if you just removed all reference to PCs in the Sig block now that we have custom Avatars (300 post minimum), it would not even be a noticible issue :).


I guess you could write a script to make random posts in random threads with nice tidings and thoughts. Say, about 1 every 30 minutes. That's 48 posts per day, and should catch you up quick, hehehe.

joespaniel
Aug 04, 2002, 09:50 AM
Well, first off you need a custom battleship avatar.
The Civ3 one is out of style. :D

Starlifters idea sounds good. Copy-and-paste "sounds good guys" or "very nice thread" 40 or 50 times a day in random posts until you catch up. :lol:

EDIT: And watch out for Knight-Dragon, he's been posting like crazy lately. I have a feeling he will be the darkhorse in the top 4. ;)

I have come up with a three step plan, first of all, a little postcount reduction, then ban them for a week or two (or three) then spam your brains out so it will take years for them to catch up with you.

Isn't there a secret moderator's forum or something? Why not just make the posts in there count then, if there is?

There is such a rumoured place..... It is know as a 'Staff-Forum' and on some days when the server is whacked, us regular peons can enter and even post! But that may not be wise however, as the gods will be upset...

Simply answer to every possible threads. It's not that hard, and I'm pretty sure it will get your post count up. Or simply start flame war somewhere with someone that is almost always online. All those together should do it. :D

Simple, during the days Thunderfall couldn't get to the site (DNS changes), the others were allowed to catch up. So, post more. ;)

Thunderfall

People seem to prefer banning of the top 3 posters, so that's probably what I would do. :D j/k

Don't remind me... ;) It's the saddest thing about leaving college -- no more wondrous T1 connection. :(

Aaah - did you fall? Poor old you. Did you graze your knee?

You could change your username to Thunderfell though, but other than that I wouldn't worry overly about postcount. We don't respect Simon just because he has a greater postcount than you do - it's mostly fear to be honest.
What has happened to the rising young star of Belgium's spam community anyway? I hope that he has decided that his schoolwork is ultimately more important than having fun at CFC but he is always welcome back. :) Rodgers seems to be on holiday too, so the OT is a little quiet in the European afternoon. Well, until Lefty arrives that is.

Philippe checked in over at Gamecatcher, saying that he was off at a camp of some sort, but will return within the week. It didn't sound like he was having much fun, so expect an increased flow of postings from him when he gets back!

On a slight off-topic note, I think itīs no wonder TF has fallen! :p

He constantly loses his iron grip on this forum, has almost no control over anybody here anymore. ;)
The fact that you have allowed CUSTOM AVATARS ( :eek: ) is the biggest proof for this thesis. After battling for hundreds of years against any form of this nonsense, you have given in to demands of mere mortals. :lol:
So the truth is, you have gotten too weak to stay in the top position, the weak will fall, sooner or later. :yeah:

P.S.: This is all not meant (too) seriously.

I think the Lorde of Thunder should get posting and push his way back into the exhalted halls of top spot...

Can't he just automatically jump to 5000 posts?

It would give the Horse and Herr Darkshade a target to aim for!

TF, I'm surprised you haven't posted more in this thread! It's a great PC booster. You can also make posts like this, which serve a very small purpose but no one would accuse of being spam for the sheer reason that they are more than 1 line.

If you'd like a true lesson in spamming, just ICQ PH and ask, he taught me a month ago and ever since then my PC has boosted dramatically.

ummm... just kidding

And if we're going to do the A-Team routine in here.....can I be murdoch?????? :D

I am feeling indifferent about lots of things on the forum now... probably because I spend much less time browsing the forum and the net in general than in the past. I'll just go with what the majority here wants and be a people's admin instead of an ironfisted dictator. ;)

See there TF, that wasn't too hard. now you need to respond to this, then you'll be 1 closer to PH!!!

TF = Turnip Farmer

That's right, ya big :sheep: !!! "INDIFFERENT"?! "JUST GO WITH"??!! "PEOPLE'S ADMIN"???!!! I am shocked and appalled. Not to mention ashamed. Take Gonzo's advice! Ban some people and get back into the swing of things! Start with me, then maybe Knight Dragon just because... And Philllllipe! He'd never know! And Darky... Yah!
