Let's get this straight, the star system doesn't freaking work.

It's just broken all together, can anyone think of a reason why MODS wouldn't be able to promote someone, and an ADMIN would? Other than having more internet power, they both go through the same script to add/remove stars.

Sure, it's possible to add and remove stars, by editing the forum's database directly.

I recall Enos saying he couldn't promote people.

So what we have is a glitch, overflow, or what-have-you with the database. Either that, or someone is tinkering with it.

Now, this might all be true, but it is a bit more rational than "OMG IT PROMOTES AT RANDOM", "HIM AND HIM WERE ON AND THEY GOT PROMOTED THAT'S IT I'M RIGHT", and it certainly isn't post count.

Yep, I never thought I would be caught.

Now the real question is why did you guys get promotions while I was demoted?  I smell a snitch . . . .

Ya think? 

Since few people seem to have noticed, the Administrator was online yesterday at the time we had "Star Machine Madness".

It would seem logical, given what's happened, that he is attempting to repair the star machine and was simply doing functional testing.

Its not by post count.
The star system picked out random people.

Altough my thoery seems to make sense, it doesn't account for sniper(or frozen, whatever your name is) account being stared.


It's because I am helpful...

You cannot for one second judge my overall contribution to the forum by what I post in T&O.

i wish when stuff like this happened the admin would get on and sticky a topic explaining what he knew...sorta like the govt gives press releases to keep ppl from goin crazy and speculating the admin could give "press releases" to keep us from goin crazy and speculating.  i personally think al qaida (sp?) is behind this.  we should have a mad forum riot all nite long like that forum slumber party a while back except well lite **edited** on fire instead of making smores.

No it's not like that, cause my other name went from 12+ per day to now about 1.2 per day. And I haven't logged on by it in a while

Yes I noticed that right after posting that about Jason. It could be Jason though, because I know that if you're admin, you can change your name and demote your "old-self". He could have done that, and is just going by "Administrator" now.
