in reply to A Level Playing Field

This feels like an aristocratic decision .. a decision made by those higher in rank in order benefit themselves (that being, to bring some 'fun' back to the system)

While I wholly support their decision to add further ranks, the reorganisation of the lower levels was unnecessary.

Keeping everything just where it was would allow those of us below 'saint' to continue in our pilgrimage to sainthood ... 3000XP. But now I'm on a pilgrimage to popehood, and even if I ignore that, to become a saint I now need 80000XP!

(On an aside: To keep with the catholic background, this now requires each saint to have performed 54 miracles after their death!)

Why couldn't we have just rejigged it for you upper-level saints and left the rest of us on our journey? Why not just indroduce levels of sainthood so you can play your little games and leave the rest of us on our pilgrimage alone?

I feel like some character in a game who's been sent to the next village -- only the person playing the game just paused it and moved the village!

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
[ambrus]: So now when I choose what motherboard to buy for my new home computer, I have one more specific property to guide me. Useful, because there's so many different boards to choose from.
[Corion]: Well, no computer will start up without the blood sacrifice being made!
