If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Double Posting?

On some forums I have seen, If you double post (make 2 posts in a row instead of adding the content of the second to the end of the first via editing), both the moderators and other posters get extremely angry. However, I see people do this on this forum often. Is it forbidden?

You broke his rhythm.

If someone were spamming short posts in a row and posting in the forums as if it were a chat room or something then sure, I'd step in, but the occasional double post isn't a big deal.

Yeah, it's fine. This is one post about a topic, written on the 25th.

Re: Double Posting?

It's the 3rd now, and I've gotten another idea, distinct from the earlier one. I'm posting again.

Re: Double Posting?

People think they're being clever by multiposting in this thread, but what they don't realize is they're reducing their all-important thanks-to-posts ratio.

It's fine just as long as you don't remove all the thanks he's ever given...

The thanking economy would collapse overnight. I'm too big to fail.

Re: Double Posting?

Thanking is an economy? What can you buy with your thanks? Is there a store? A place I can exchange them for goods and services? Oooh, like maybe some free artefacts in my current game? Because that'd be pretty rad.

Re: Double Posting?

It's linked up to the RNG in game, as long as you play online. Your thank/have thanked ratio is applied as a decimal multiplier to your in game 'luck' score, which Xom uses whenever the dice are rolled. A > 1 luck score means your rolls go better, a < 1 luck score makes them worse.

Unfortunately, I screwed up, and named myself after an enemy in crawl, so now he gets my luck score, and benefits from my thanks. You may have noticed Dowan is less of a pushover than he used to be, and now you know why. Thank responsibly!
