I mean… it is good to see that Web 1.5 is still alive and well (With Web 1.0 not having the Common Gateway Interface and chatting being via USENET and IRC). I understand some people also use Debian Linux in their Amish communities to raise barns as well (gonna be another barn raising on Debian soon).
The thing is, even without forums being awkward in our current days of Web 3.11 For Workgroups… there is the notion that this will lead to more crap posting than anything else.
I know, I’ve successfully gotten similar achievements on other websites. I did it by crap posting. I couldn’t have done it by posting intelligent, well thought out and quite poignantly delivered material. People really hold no interest in that for the most part. Be fucking hilarious (like I always am) and everybody responses well.
I imagine there will be similar achievements over the addition of Web 3.0’s more stream based ways of handling stuff (Web 2.0 was about tagging, and relationship based data storage, Web 3.11 is streaming network with the addition of Though Bubbles… Yes, I am trendy–but only for ironic reasons). And there really isn’t too much issue to have achievements over how many people are following you or that you are following–as those are harder to fudge (without it being obvious to everybody).
I dunno… this isn’t me bitching about people not liking my posts–as well, I haven’t posted anything, and if I did, you’d love the shit out of all my posts and beg for more. It is more… it doesn’t seem like a good way to handle getting people into the forums.
So uh yeah…
