Why only 1 post?

I think most of the people aren't even aware of the forum existence,so let's give them a chance to explore,and who knows, maybe they will like it and decide to stay!

I consider that we can call anyone who reaches 1000 forum posts a Veteran. Such a person probably knows every corner of the forum.

Why the range from 1 up to 10000 with instances on 100 and 1000 ?

With a normal behavior anyone is able to achieve 1,000 forum posts.

The reason for the big lap from 1000 to 10000 lies in safety measures,we don't need spam! Even if someone is hunting quests, a long way is ahead of him,and I don't believe that someone is ready to pass such a long route just for 1 quest!

In addition, that quest should indicate something above average,something amazing!

Why these group of quests when we already have game related quests ?

One of the main reasons why we are all here, are games actually, in every sense of that word! Games with quests are cool addition,but that does not mean that other games should not be played at all, on the contrary the more we play the more we contribute to the site growth.

Unique quests:

Castle builder, Castle crusher .... and many others

Unique quests should be given a special attention,they are the future in every sense.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now,let's get down to the point of all this:

The main concept:

Transformation of Legacy quest into Community quests!!!

The original idea was to establish a balance between new and old members of this site. The legacy quest are not a good solution and definitely they need to be replaced with new system. One of the possible solution is implementation of ~ Community quests ~ where all have equal chances.

I'll explain a little more detail:

Members which have a large number of legacy quests do not lose anything, when their legacy quests turn into Community quests they will still be slightly ahead over average members and especially over newcomers,but there would be healthy competition.

And that's what this is all about,healthy competition,equal conditions for all.I think this could injected a new life into this site and make things much more interesting.

Some of them, of course, greatly encourage users to come to the forums...which I approve.

I do worry about the spam that would result from it

We've had conversations about a few of these ideas, but it's really neat to see them created thought up by a user. The first community type Quest we have being designed is the notion of returning to play games every day. :)

What do you guys think about Quests that are unattainable by some people? For instance an artist Quest may never be attainable by somebody like me, we couldn't doodle myself out of a paper bag...

Legacy quests are already exactly like that, so if we have those which nobody will ever be able to earn again, we might as well have some that cater to certain people's talents.

Hey, we can't have an artist quest without a writer quest! That's just discrimination! Anyway, maybe we could have quests like:

Horror Story:
Write a Horror Story that's positively reviewed.

Writing Competition:
Win a writing competition.

You could have other genres too, those are just examples for quests.

Armatar Maker
Have an armatar you make become an actual armatar.

Straight Down The Mental Toilet:
"Win" a mental poop competition.

Again, you could have more variations for these art quests.

Some of those quests are oddly specific. I'm referring specifically to the horror story quest, and especially the mental poop quest, which is one specific contest. The other two are fine, but writing a horror story seems completely out of the blue for a quest, and the mental poop competition is just one contest out of many, and if it ends, the quest becomes an unattainable legacy quest.

It's run by a moderator, and it has had four segments before now. I doubt it will end very soon. Besides, Legacy Quests are fine, we'd be keeping them anyway with this system.

Clearly you didn't read what I said.

That doesn't matter. It's a contest run by an individual, not by the site, and therefore it can end any time. It also means that the opinion of just one individual decides who does and who doesn't earn a specific quest.
