Oh, I see. Too many links, not enough text.
Well!! I saw we needed something cool, so here it is.
OMG OMG OMG OMG!
How can I abuse this? Oh I know, I'll make a string of jokes in separate transactions.
The only problem is keeping a tally, and figuring out past internets.
Also, we should only introduce a certain amount of internets to avoid inflation, which would make internets meaningless.
Hahahahahaha, yup. It seemed that these were the most common internets given. I can easily change the numbers if you like. People can keep tally if they like, I just thought it'd be fun to have a badge-type thing...even if we can't display it here. lol.
Man, the trouble we'd all get in if we could have signatures. XD And imbed photos.
Man, all these great things, and we're stuck with bbpress :T phpbb and vbulletin have been doing laps around this forum system.
internets could be like a currency that is accrued at a certain rate. Every noob starts off with 50 internets and gains another once every month as long as they have 5 posts a month. That would make longtime forum regulars' internets more valuable to receive it from.
Hrm there's a lot of thought that needs to go into this internets system.
OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!
I just noticed the reputation points added to the profiles.
Oh my god.
<--- This is wonderful.
There are your Internets. Tell me if that is good enough. I can change the BB system, but the things is everyone would have to recreate their accounts, etc.
Thank you, admin! ^_^ Although maybe it devalues my internets. ;-)
I wish to obtain Internets! What are the rules for this elusive game?
From what I gather, you earn them by posting, and can give them to people.
@decafgrande you are welcome. Sorry about the Internets inflation.
Haha, that's okay. Hmm, I awarded OrangeBlossom 1 internet for being awesome...how does she find out about it?
This is AWESOME! I approve.
Hrm, that is a tough one. There's a lot more functionality with other forum systems, and yeah the recreation of accounts would be the biggest drawback.
PROS of phpbb / vbulletin / etc.:
private messaging, avatars, image posting, stuffs.
If you click on their profile, there is a tab that says "Internets".
I can enable private messaging, avatars, image posting I'm not too keen about.
But look at the bbpress site, there are loads of plugins.
I understand. I've installed online bulletins for others before, and while I like WordPress as a CMS, BBPress is still too new to me. I'll try installing my own bbpress and playing around with its functionality first.
Thank you for all the recent feedback admin :)
Yes! Thank you! :)
Omg we have internets!!!
Best thing ever to find while on my 10 :)
I came home, I saw this.
I haven't stopped laughing hysterically from the sheer, unsullied awesome of it all. omfg <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
I'm wondering how everyone got their point values. Maybe from cumulative number of posts?
Yeh, as I've noticed it's +1 per post. So I started off with like 1600 or so. Every time you give them to someone, you give yours.
And (lolo racking up moar here) you can only give as many as you have, which was why my trying to give the admin OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAANDDD didn't work.
I think you get +2 internets for starting a topic, also.
I think if you were online at the time the Internets were implemented, you weren't retroactively given Internets.
I just gave away like.. all my internets because I didn't know how they worked. Lol :P
No worries, it was out of love.
Private messaging would be sheer win, but image posting and avatars could still be doable so long as we have some terms that the admin can agree upons for like, standards and practices.
Keeping it nonoffensive, so to speak, such as no nudity, no grotesque violence, no incriminating stuff like unconsented pictures of coworkers.. a common sense sort of thing. If we can manage that (which I mean, we're all adults here, so we do know not to put goatses everywhere (though implied goatses are funnier (i was doing one of those with a trenta cup earlier today))) then I don't have to like, police around and edit/delete crap.
Now, I have A THOUSAND AND ONE INTERNETS
