and you will be old soon enough.....
Even though I am the victim of a vast conspiracy to keep me from my Divine Right to Silver status cool , I have to say I find the inscrutible workings of Mr. Al Gorithm to be somewhat fun. I still play video games (go ahead, you can judge, I don't care ), and I think of it a lot like Achievements in those games-- when you unlock them unexpectedly, it's really fun, and makes you want to try more things to see what else you can unlock!
Just curious... have you looked in the off-topic forums to see if anything "new" appears? There are secrets there. Also, head to the MP store to claim your Sliver gifts.
I tried going to the store when I got the alert, but when I do, it tells me I have not reached the appropriate status. It's an outrage, I tell you!
You're not the only one suffering this indignity:
I'm guessing that means you also can't access the sooper secret silver sector of these fora.
Thanks for going to bat for me, Gargoyle. I am still denied the secret pleasures of the Silver forum; what wonders await me there?
If I told you, you'd have to kill me.
Ah! I suffer the punishments of Tantalus!
which makes the rewards all that much more Tantalizing.
And I was just awarded the Active Member status achievement 10 minutes ago! It's deja vu all over again!
Amazing! First Silver status that was never recognized and then they made you Active Member all over again. It sounds like the algorithm is changing and you were unfortunately caught in the middle.
Fortunately, it's not life or death, and we can all have fun with it!
there are two different usages of "active member"... one is a bridge between new member and silver, and the other is a point award that seems linked to the density of activity in a limited time period. You have achieved both, so you're a doubly active personality.
Well, I finally realized what I've been missing by not posting here earlier-- I joined in April of last year, kind of forgot about it until recently, and now am enjoying the very welcoming community!
No... it's much more important than that!
You may want to post in this thread that is discussing issues... it looks like you are not alone.
we've sure got you fooled!
My new goal is to see if I can reach 500 points before I become MP Silver! Off Topic forums, here I come!
Well, that was a FAIL. But the upside is I have been bestowed with the incomparable honor that is SILVER.
Next goal is gold. You should have the time in, you just have to meet the other reqs. 1k pts?
Hey CharlesG - I recognize you from the "following" thread - glad to see Silver finally appeared on your avatar! Congrats!
Something like that! It's far enough away that I can bask in the glow of silver.
Don't tempt him.
Silver is incomparable. Don't forget to order your luggage tags in the awards store. You can also ask the House of Miles to laminate a business card for a mini tag. Mine just arrived today. It creates the illusion that I am a businessperson.
It wasn't enough you rigged the election so the Pig would win. You have to violate some federal laws by trying to entrap CharlesG.
The first thing I did was order my luggage tags! My bags will look 13x handsomer with those tags on them!
