    that's stupid, as it means people who are working whenever the thread expires are at a disadvantage since NCG has made it readily apparent he'll be up whenever he needs to be to get the point. This is a legitimate concern and the only reason I've been posting in it is to make sure I have a legitimate chance at winning

    Or you just have to sacrifice a point to make sure you have the potential to get points later on. Having negative points makes the game have a new depth of strategy.

    Also cockblocking would still be a perfectly fine strategy. But it will be a double edged sword.

    no one would do that though. sacrificing a point for the possibility of a point later? it'd be a stupid strategy. such a rule would simply punish people who don't have flexible schedules.

    Or we can make it even BETTER. If you post less than a week, you must submit content for the frontsite within 1 week or your score is set to zero and you get the complimentary Psychotic supreme teabag
    Or you could do your job and not try to get other people to do it for you.

    Just a thought.

    While you guys all scramble to gain points, I'll just take the title as lowest point scorer and spam the out the thread endlessly until I break the game.

    Oh hell no. I'm bumping this at another point because I am not waiting until 2am to score a point. Smurf you, wookie bro

    EDIT: I hope I get the next point

    EDIT2: Wtf happened to that smiley?

    EDIT3: OH AND YEAH. You can't apply rules retrospectively. That's just balls and you should feel ashamed for taking points off people that posted before the ruling.

    Consider the above a warning ^o^ Rule one is "Post as little as possible", rostera'ing, although a legitimate technique is being abused, if I deam your use of the Roosta inappropriate I will be applying penalties and they may not be as forgiving as the ones done this time

    I didn't post for like a year in the last one and you never gave me any points! this game is rigged

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    That's not how the game works. Points are earned based on your post and the post before yours.

    Edit: Wtf, you took points from me? I was only ever responding, not being a dick. I hate this game now.

    Edit 2: What Bunny said.

    Retroactively giving me a minus point for a ruling that was not made apparent beforehand is stupid.

    Indeed it is, especially since I only ever responded to other people's bumps as well. At any rate I claim this point in the name of my empire.
