New roids for posts shambles

Please stop this 5 post madness before the spam goes apocalyptic on Wednesday....

What did you expect to happen? 5 on point and well thought out posts from everybody wanting 15 asteroids?!?

If you want to hand out 15 roids then do it the old way. This idea is so ill conceived that it's almost like you want 300 smilie posts on here....

Sort out the forums first before trying to get people to spam the shit outta them....

Re: New roids for posts shambles

I'd honestly take the spam. even if we do have comments like this, we're still up on forum activity and posting and having a couple of new threads. Will review at the end of the round

Re: New roids for posts shambles

at least the old way you could control when you got the roids, now it's just a mess. AND with the new init costs they are worth a lot more a bit later!

Please for once address an issue properly and not like the past.

sorry Meischter. Most of the people with your e-mail ISP are spambots and I did a review recently and deleted them all as they had ~0 posts. I've just re-looked and saw this post and so will remember to be more careful in future

Re: New roids for posts shambles

Intention is correct, but flawed as there is no criteria for a post to count. Therefore just get people who can count to 5 posting numbers 1 2 5 (dammit I can't count, I'll never get the roids)
