'Bring back the ACES'

Quote

Back in the days yonder, when Andy Murray was a relative unknown, when you could publicly light up in Scotland and when Ariel Sharon was still Prime Minister of Israel. There was an number that was as vital as your National Insurance number, your phone number or your PIN number.

Yes, I'm talking about the 'Aces' on MW.  Wink

Simply, 'Aces' was an attribute, that was calucalated by the 'average of words in a post, added up' (Julia)

Forum regulars such as Arka, davidB and probably even Cate and Rochelle havent experienced the unparallelled joy of watching your 'Aces' total build up as you spent more of your hard-earned leisure time (or in Arka's case, time  Wink) posting away on these boards.

However, suddenly there were no more Aces, members campaigned. There were angry demonstrations outside MW Head Office, but the 'Aces' weren't reinstated. To this day, many still wonder what might have been if 'Aces' were still a pivotal part of MW.

So I therefore extend an inquiry to Mark, our admin in asking:

1) Can we have our 'Aces' back?  Wink  Very Happy
2) If this cannot happen, why not?

To add to the fabricated sense of rebellion, I would like to create a petition. roflmao

To Admin

We, the undersigned wish to have the 'Aces' system re-instated on MW, in the belief that they bring an added dimension of fun and bragging rights , that has not been bettered since then.

If you want to be on the petition then please put your name down. This is all a bit of fun and we just want to know what are the possibilities of the 'Aces' making a comeback

Thanks Smile

Right. This was AGES ago.  shocking (I believe we had a limit of posts as well then.. something like "after 10 posts a day your aces don't increase").

Simply, 'Aces' was an attribute, that was calucalated by the 'average of words in a post, added up' (Julia)

 Think That was a GUESS!

Anyway. It's an interesting concept.  Whistle Maybe the aces would be so big now, that the numbers wouldn't be able to fit on the page.  :P

The aces were removed because it was just another thing that had to be kept updated with new versions of the old forum software being updated. I should point out that I asked if anyone really cared if it was removed and no one seemed to be bothered either way.

This message board is customised to the extreme behind the scenes as it is so a reward system would just add another thing to keep an eye on.

I'll bear your request in mind though and if I see a cool mod that would be able to do it easily like with the old forums maybe it could be re-instated when other parts of MW have been sorted.
