Earning Achievements

Post by OTABILL »

I was just looking at the way one earns achievements and believe it is unfair to regular Forum participants. You can earn 3 achievements for player club points (10k, 100k and 1000k) 3 achievements for playing the daily contest (1st, top 10, top 100) and 3 for the weekly contest). However, someone who post 1 inane comment gets the same number of achievements (1) as someone who reaches the video poker veteran and video poker master levels. Seems to me the same principal of 3 achievements should apply, 1 each for a post, 1 for video poker veteran, and 1 for video poker master. To avoid multiple inane posts, such as “I enjoy VP”, “My favorite game is DDB”, “Hello”, or “Hi”, only 1 such post should be permitted in reaching veteran or master levels. What do you say Webman?

I think 1 inane comment is better than 1,000 inane comments. ;)

That's not a veiled jab at any one in particular, is it? Oh, that's right. You only said ONE thousand.

Agreed, but it may be a way to increase beneficial participation in the forum. :) I for one would like seeing more diverse posts, topics than the same old, same old. Especially now when many of us are homebound.
