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.
