View Full Version : Rogue Stones
The Soul Forever Seeking
Mon, 28th Oct '02, 12:10am
I was just wondering here, has anyone made it all the way up from Turquoise to Rogue Stone? It seems to me that everyone with a large amount of posts has an avatar, so they either lose the stone thing, or it just isn't posted. Perhaps when they reach Rogue Stone they get some sort of illumination, or enlightenment, and rise to a higher form of life where posting on SP isn't necessary to be entertained.

I believe Marnix (Headbanger) was the only one to manage this incredible feat thus far.

No, don't think so. I think he got his avatar just before he reached it. The gems anoyed him that much...

Me going for that record
with this tempo (238 post in 5 months) that´ll be 3500 post in 73,52941764705882352941176470588 months
73,52 - 5 months = 68,52 (Only part I didnt need calc for)
68,52 = 5,71 years
Meaning: I´ll stick around for a while
[Darn, with this post the number got 239, I´m leaving the rest of the math to you]

Of course, not getting a portrait means not supporting SP by buying stuff or sending articles. Darn. I'm doomed to be a leech.
Say! Maybe we could have someone just post anything in every single thread every day for a month and see how far we get. Of course, Tal would kill us...

Of course. Before the day was over.

Just think! I'll be a rogue stone person then :)
Then again, by the time I get to post 3,497, that will be the time when its decided that the rogue stone will go up another 5,000 posts :)

With the plot between Marnix and Tal (keeping Marnix no. 1) You bet your bony butt thats gonna happen
I´m paranoid can you tell??

Marnix has a portrait already. And sure, you can contribute to SP and keep your gemness. It's not like it's required to take an avatar/portrait.

Thats a relief then :) I'll see when I actually have credit in my card and i'll attempt the paypal thing again and hopefully it will work ;)

Maybe we should do like a compulsory donation thing..if you don't donate, you don't post

Shell, if that was put in place an absolutely huge number of members would disappear. For example someone (new person) who wants to just ask one question (and has done all the searches and can't find it) will be registering and suddenly struck by the 'radio boxes of ways to pay' or some such name. Then even if he/she does decide it's a very important question that they really need the answer to they're going to have to wait around till the payment is cleared/recieved/confirmed. Slow and would put a hell of a lot of people off the site.

Must I say it: Hell No!

Unless you've got a large fanbase that's bound to your site, that's a perfectly good way to kill off a perfectly good site.
Sun, 30th Mar '03, 9:06pm
Not going to happen, so it's a non-issue. You can't force people to pay for anything on the Internet. They'll just go somewhere else.

Actually you can check out your gem in the directory. I checked out Tal's gem though. There's none. It's his avatar. :D
Mon, 31st Mar '03, 8:28am
That goes for all accounts with an avatar, not just Tal's.
Mon, 31st Mar '03, 11:11am
Nope, I saw your gem when I saw it in the directory. :p

Yep Faragon, you're on Aquamarine :)
Mon, 31st Mar '03, 7:56pm
I thought Rogue stone was 5K posts? How could Headbanger have got it then?
Mon, 31st Mar '03, 10:03pm
It was lower before I finalized the system.
Tue, 1st Apr '03, 12:02pm
Ah, I was looking at the profiles, not the directory :)
And as it stands now, only Tal gets a rogue stone :D

As for paying to get in, I frequented a really good BG2 site for a while because it had some kick buttinsky data on it. Then the guy who ran it started charging! So I went elsewhere. I have a family to feed and rent to pay. One day, I will send Tal some $, but there's no way I could pay a steady fee -- I have a tough time making my car payments!

When I get my credit card of my mother and all my money back I'll donate to SP :thumb:
I wonder ifI'll have completed my MODs by then :hmm:
Thu, 10th Apr '03, 9:38am
paying would create a bit of a probblem for me, as im only 16. I dont think i can get a credit card till im 18, and even then, im not going to commit myself to something i cant pay for. Im jobless. Just gonna have to do something worthwhile to nab an avatar, like create a file or somesuch.
