Wow! The Sages have hit over 1,000 commendations! As of right now (the time this is being written), we have achieved a total of 1,001 commendations in total. This is pretty impressive, and personally urges me to keep on with it.
The people who made this possible; (From most commendations to least)
Again, good job guys. Keep it up, and maybe we'll get to 2,000 soon.
Not like we really need to, however, concluding the Order of Sage is, like, way ahead of the other Orders.
I noticed that you also tagged yourself in this post. Amazing. :)
Ya know, I kinda' doubt the other orders would catch up even if we all decided to take an extended sabbatical.
Though of course I'd like to be proven wrong.
Congratulations to the Sages. You have almost 2/3s of all commendations.
The following is a rant of how much I don't like this system.
I honestly don't see this as amounting to anything. If MK was in his own order (Dwarf King?), it would have the second most commendations.
Most of the Warden's commendations come from storygames that are no longer published. My own Marauders is pathetic, for the one with the second most commendations (me) would be ninth (almost eleventh) if I was a sage. Plus, we have only 16 members ever to receive a commendation (which is the lowest number). The Architects at least have three members in the 60-75 range.
In essence, only two members of the site have about a third of all commendations. Both are Sages. There are only eleven members with over sixty commendations. Five are Sages, one is a Marauder. Two are Wardens (mostly from unpublished storygames). Three are Architects. To be honest, that's the only other order that is "respectable" in my mind.
To be honest, I feel like making a hundred featured comments with a guest called WIBN just because the commendation system is more broke than our point system.
Anyway, have a nice day to all Sages. It's an interesting milestone for commendation history. :)
Annoyingly, people also don't seem to be commending stories much either, which eliminates my chances of getting more commendations, even though I'm fairly sure if my two latest storygames were commended, going by my last game, would toss me up at least a hundred commendations.
Seriously people, give me more power.
That is something else I'd like to see. Let's say it takes somebody one hour (probably shorter for many of those) to read a storygame and comment on it. For a good storygame, it could easily take twenty four hours (of pure writing). That is on an almost absurdly low amount of writing for a slow writer like myself. Or, one could read, comment, and be commended on featured comments (for 72 commendation points). The system in its present state discourages writing from a commendation standpoint.
Heck, I had a storygame that was nearly a 5/8. It was featured during the first days of the commendation implementation period. There's no way that it would've been commended now days.
Yeah, I've always said we should be able to remove commendation points.
This'd quell my complaints almost 100%. (I still think that featured comments should be less than three commendations.) However, Inseparable should be commended. It's a bloody featured storygame for Pete's sake. It's only a 4/8 length anyway, so the commendations won't be insanely high.
I think Iron Panther's storygame was destructive to the commendation system. (Sorry, the following is one of my rare critiques in our otherwise spectacular leadership). The mods have been too cautious pretty much ever since we realized that the storygame wasn't nearly worth 70+ commendations.
The main point was just that my new stories should be commended. I don't particularly care for anyone else.
Yeah, but I like the idea of beating Thara and Minnie through no effort in trying to get commendations.
I think you should you make these comments of yours as a guest. Protest and reject this broken from the very start system of ours.
Architects will come back and rise to the top.
Just wondering, but is there any way to have your order changed?
Not currently. You could go chop off your dick and balls and get a new vagina made out of pig assholes easier than you could change your Order.
You're stuck with what you got.
Everyone goes sage X'D
I'd rather be an Architect actually. It isn't the biggest, but it is better than the other two. Plus, I would be one of the last people to ever maraud anything.
The grass is always greener on the other side. :)
Hey wardens are cool too wibbon :(
Well that just hurt my feelings
I actually thought you were an Architect until I checked your profile recently. xD Yes! Join usss! Muehuehue!
Long live the Sages!
*remembers that I was the one that recommended the comments for featuring that made sages get 1000*
*remembers that Thara titled me honorary sage*
*am not a two-faced meanie*
Everyone, let's all try our best to get more commendations!
