good news i came up wiht a super fantastic new idea!!!!!!!!!?!
you know how we have a leader board for who has the most AP and the most active member? well we should have ones for who has the most form posts and who has the most comments and also who has the most game ratings games submited and merits


ex:


most form posts:
1.player1-3,000
2.player2-2,999

most merits:
1.player3-5
2.player4-3

most comments:
1.player5-1,654
2.player6-1,233

most game rates:
1.player7-981
2.player8-722

most games submited:
1.player9-52
2.player10-47


comments concerns questions suggestions?

I say just take away the comments and game rates and it'll be okay. But the thing is, this will probably attract a bit more spammers so that they can be on the leader board.

AG3 may do away with merits, so that one's out.
AG3 forums haven't been decided yet, so that's debatable.
Most comments = too much spam to validate.
Game ratings = too much spam

What do you mean by "AG3 forums haven't been decided yet"? You aren't meaning to do away with them, are you? (sorry if this has already been covered :D)

They're not sure yet. And if they are, it hasn't been released yet.

@ waluigi : yes, that has been covered before and it was stated that AG is lloking for ways to deal with the forae right now... it's not sure whether they will migrate the whole thing or start fresh yet. ;)

(Sorry, couldn't find the specific thread that mentioned it...)

Thank you Mr. Daycee. This just goes to show how much I need to catch up on in this part of the forum.

(but i still think we should do a no pionts merits. but then i geuss that is fixed with rep... sorry off topic!)

it seems you would get to many people just doing it for piont. i don't know why people do that but they do, what are pionts for any way? to modeavat people? it seem to just make people fight for "POWER". i under stand rank as little because it shows the amount of time and effort one puts. but to get ranks you need a piont or rep system... so it all seems to be an endless trouble and war of "the spammer that wants power" VS the "nice guy who just loves to play game and/or loves the community", and the nice guy is trying to stop all the spammers while the spammer fight for FAKE "power". (not puting every one in those to groups, or ranting and raving, just saying). realy, does any one pay atition to piont or rank?

i know i just made a big sensetive bomb... i don't mean to hert feelinngs! just the ahnest truth... sorry for any hert made. ;)

The way I see it, the AP is there to show how much you contributed to AG (whether good or bad, it's recorded). There will be better ways to fight spam, so the AP in the future may be more "credible". In the long run, rank and forum posts really don't matter, but again, it's contribution to the site, and this could generally be a factor in your "fame".

If anything, we should have a "ranked reputation" page, but since there's no clue as to how that will work out, maybe it will be best to hold that off until another time.

I understand everything you say 'KyahcoSukaimasutae', but there's one thing you overlooked here...

Just remember this: a lot (probably 75%) of the ArmorGames users like to come here to gain points and have their place in the rankings as some sort of 'trophy' to show off... so doing away with these features would be a senseless thing to do! People who come here are part of a gaming community in several ways and making them come back and participate in it is what the goal is for a website like ArmorGames... ;)
