Changes to Streaking (x forums in a row)

Tonight I deployed a change to the way streaks were being handled in the database. It’s quite simple now compared to the way it used to be:

  • By pwning different forums in a row, you increase your streak
  • If you repeat a forum, the streak resets
  • If you do not complete a forum (die, chicken out, whatever), your streak resets.

Every 4 forums you pwn, you will be rewarded with an E-Peen(tm) and pistachio scoops.

Now I did my best job migrating all the old streaks over to the new system. However, there may be some speed bumps at first, as streaks that worked before no longer might work with the new system. Also, it’s always possible I’ve introduced new bugs.

If your streak breaks, please report it as a bug using the report a bug tool. I have the capability of fixing your streak, so it is not a permanent loss!

The important thing is to report anything fishy so we can figure it out. Having said that, I looked through the top players and it seems to match up perfectly. Here is a list of the top streakers, in case anyone is interested.

  4. I might want to kill myself less if INCIT-bot automatically wrote something after 4 people have been waiting for 5 minutes or so. But that sounds like tedious code work, so don’t expect me to do anything about it, all I can do is bitch and moan a little, not that bitching and moaning accomplishes anything, it’s just that I don’t have anything better to do. I don’t actually expect anything to get done about anything, especially things I might not dislike too much, since I’m doomed to be frustrated in everything I do. God, I’m too tired to write any more. I need a cigarette so I can die of cancer someday; I’ll just dig one out of an ashtray, because my frugality is totally next level, not that it ever made life any better. *sigh* I need a girlfriend, so she can get up and get my smokes for me. I’m so tired. Maybe if I can build up the energy to lift my arms, I can eat something and build up the energy to do something, like get some smokes. God, do I have to reach all the way over to the mouse just to click send? *sigh*
