Forum Rules IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

On August 20 2009, Brainstock moved to a new board. What you are currently looking at is only an archive of old threads - everything is now taking place in the new forums.

Please switch to the new board now: http://s1.zetaboards.com/brainstock/

The reasons for this move were several unfixable issues with the old board. Examples are broken styles, missing features like a "find all posts by this member", no search feature, the lack of root access. No admins had access to the admin logs, for instance.

By moving, these and several other issues have been fixed, the forums had been improved. The admins now have root access and therefore unremovable logs to improve admin accountability, and we're now using ZetaBoards instead of InvisionFree, which offers a regularly updated software and lots of new features.

If you are seeing this message for the first time and are not here to look at archived threads, this is what you need to do: First, register on the new board. Then, if you had been registered on the old board and if you are part of a group or had any special access privileges, make sure to request your previous permissions here.

Should you encounter any links pointing to the old board (archive), please try to update them. Thank you for your help!

 Handing out stars, ...just like your favorite teacher!

Good afternoon, Malton. It's good to see you all here. You've been doing a great job!

Because you're doing so well, I've decided to reward you in the very best way I know how. I'm going to be handing out stars!

۞ - Blue Stars are like the pennies of stars. They're worth one Blue Star.


۞ - White Stars are like the dimes of stars. They're worth ten Blue stars, and one tenth of a Red star.


۞ - Red stars are like the dollars of stars. They're worth ten white stars, and one hundredth of Genuine Happiness.


- Genuine Happiness is equivalent in value to one hundred Red Stars.

I wish I had enough stars to give you all Genuine Happiness... but unfortunately, supplies are limited. I will only be handing out a maximum of two hundred stars per month, based on the outcomes of arbitrary contests.

Luckily, stars are transferable! That's right- you don't have to win some arbitrary contest to work towards Genuine Happiness, you just have to be able to con people who have won such contests into giving up their loot!

Arbitrary Contests:
  • Beg for your happiness- First person to hit me up for stars in-game wins! Find me in-game, and ask me for stars. If you're the first one there, you get fifty red stars- putting you well on the way to Genuine Happiness! Runners-up will receive arbitrary sums not to exceed ten red stars per entrant, and of at least five blue stars.
  • Weekend Fireworks Display- This is a team challenge! Pick any monument you want, and fire some flares into the air. The team presenting the largest fireworks display this weekend (as evidenced by a screenshot showing a number of flares fired from a single monument after midnight tonight, but before midnight sunday) will win a whopping 100 red stars! The stars will be awarded to whoever posts the screenshot- it's your team's responsibility to decided how to split them up. I will not be investigating allegations of fraudulent reporting (e.g., taking a picture of somebody else's show and claiming it's your own), because that also fulfills the demands of the challenge.

    The screenshot doesn't need to be taken at the monument, so long as the coordinates line up with a monument.

You can't go wrong with whatever money sapping gun is exclusively sold in Dallas, but you may need a higher snuggling skill for that.

I am quite fond of shiny new things, Pray tell me Mr Bluefish in what form may one use said stars and whereabouts are you so I my ask you in person without having to search for you as I am prone to bouts of lazyness.

I have this horrible feeling that if I move this to the Spam pit, someone is going to convince an Admin or one of the Pit Mods that it belongs in UD Gen Chat.

Bluefish, please drink some of your own koolaid.

۞۞۞۞۞ - Zenburg gets five blue stars.

۞۞۞۞۞ - Amber gets five blue stars.

۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞- nine white stars for Jelly Otter.


۞۞۞۞ - four red stars for DT! Good job DT! This is not a bribe! ( wink.gif )

Starboard thus far:

Anime Sucks: ۞۞۞۞۞
Doctor Tom: ۞۞۞۞
Jelly Otter: ۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞۞
Amber Waves: ۞۞۞۞۞
Zenburg: ۞۞۞۞۞

Moomin Troll gets my exact location, which he may use to win an arbitrary contest, or sell to the highest bidder. That's all the stars for begging! Only 150 left, and those can only be obtained by winning an arbitrary contest!

EDIT: Oh, except for those other 40 stars, which were stolen by math gremlins who attacked my brain. I have recovered them, but have not yet decided how to use them.

190 stars total left in the bank.
