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.
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
) 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?
2) If this cannot happen, why not?
To add to the fabricated sense of rebellion, I would like to create a petition. 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
