I am all for the encouraging of massive post counts by making cool shineys that you earn when you get to insane numbers of posts.

Seconded!

I have tried other icons out other than stars, but they often don't look nearly as good as the stars themselves. The coins look cool, but 5 in a row looks a bit strange.

Also I can't really "mix" two types of icons ... so you can't have something like 2 coins and 3 stars as a single rating. So it has to be either all stars or all coins or whathaveyou.

So how would that work then? Say you get 1000 posts and get 5 coins, would you really want to go back to 1 star after 2000 posts and start building all over again? Let me know what you think.

Just an idea, could you use an image of fourstars and one coin for the higher level? I'd be happy to make the images for you if they could be implemented like that

tl;dr. But with all those shiny symbols and numbers it's probably awsome.

You need an ultra super wtfpwn graphic card to handle the intense effects in the game "Outside"

I heard the AI is good, but I tried it one time and it sucked. There was no consistency to what people did, it was almost impossible to know what they were going to do next. One person would act one way, another would act a different way... Gruh! The developers really need to work on their ideas of "AI" in order to make an acceptible game.

After weeks of playing GTA I woke up one morning to find it was foggy outside. My first thought was, "Someone needs to turn the draw distance up." :-\
