I have a problem with this

I set it to prune scores once every month now to give other people chances at having the high score as well as to force people to preserve their score be resetting it.


First off, if someone spend like, 3+ hours just to get that score, do you think they would constantly do it again and again? I would get really tired of doing it and it would want me to NOT play in the arcade.

Giving other people chances to have high scores? It's already been said, if you want to have high scores, then you should get it legitimately and beat the current high score. Pruning high scores every month doesn't make any sense.

Well if you guys don't like the score pruning then there could be a poll on whether it should stay or go. That's my 2 cents.

If you take the top spot, it stays in the hall of fame forever (unless someone beats it), plus, it's once every 30 days... that isn't a whole lot.

And about the posts per day thing... the arcade mod must just be screwy, so I'm gonna set a limit at 75 posts. Anyone above that will be able to play.

Second? Third? Hell, even 40th? The people that spend more time will get there scores taken off and they will have to spend that more time again. So it's those people that are at a loss here, and it makes the people that are actually worse place higher because they aren't spending hella time on it. The hall of fame is nice, but it only goes so far.

Another point I would like to address is why? Are people going to die if they can't place high with a legitimate score? No, of course not. So there really is no solid reason as to why the scores are being pruned, because all it does is cause the better people to get annoyed at having to redo all their scores(not all of you), and it lets worse people place higher. It's a feature that I think we would better be without. Capped games are the only ones that should be pruned, and in my opinion, deleted, because capped games are more about "Oh lookie, I played the game first" instead of skill.

Also, one last thing, if scores were not pruned it would result in more scores being in the arcade. Which is a good thing. That way people can hop up the ladder to first place passing more people along the way. That's more satisfying than just getting better than one person every now and then. 50 people to compete with is better than 10 people to compete with.

I agree. I feel more of a sense of accomplishment if I beat 50 people rather than 10.

We got rid of that awhile ago (even before losing the Arcade). It was an annoyance in threads.

Yeah, stay away from my score.

I don't know what to tell you, it's working fine for me. Maybe you just aren't aligning it right?
