    So I assume those are "just for fun" but I feel like such additions will make server usage and load times worse. Maybe I'm wrong about that assumption but why even have such things?

    A karma system would make sense to me but I suppose those can be considered tools for evil.

    However, experience and achievements just seem out of place on a message board or even a social network.

    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    I'm working on it right now, so that's why you see it. When I stop, you won't. Be patient. :)

    Those experience level bars can only sow the seeds of discontent and bring Toon Zone to WAR!
    So I'm all for 'em. IF they cause the user to explode when they fill up.


    I do like the video game badges though. Those are keepers.

    Experience bars? Achievements? Am I the only one who doesn't know what you guys are talking about?

    Those things are a total waste of time. I don't know why forums like to do those nowadays. It's not like you gain anything from them.

    The Escapist especially likes to do stupid crap like that.

    "Yay! You watched 5 episodes of Zero Punctuation!"
    "Yay! You've been a member for over a month, even though you're hardly ever logged in and almost never post!"

    Um... Who cares?

    I'd like to remind you that you are on the crew and you keep your grousing to the private forums or PM. Not only did you have the chance to provide input when the idea was brought up initially months and months ago, but again when the idea was revived more recently. You did neither.
