It's not all an elaborate ruse, some misguided attempt to establish for myself an online persona of dubious quality. I really am dull. If you don't find that unbearable, though, this is my blog that examines just how truly boring I can be.
The Wii giveaway is coming up soon, and I'm sure you're all as excited as I am.
There's also a new feature on the site that has me very excited. It lets you rate games, as many of you have noticed. To me, that has all sorts of potential to really improve our audience of involved participants, but only if we start out strong.
So far, we seem to be doing precisely that. A lot of you are rating games left and right, and I appreciate that... enough so, in fact, that I'm going to offer a new incentive that is available this weekend only.
Anyone who submits over 200 ratings can reply to this post before Monday, December 10 at 9PM (HG site time) and I will award you an extra 1000 HG Points. Ratings submitted prior to this message being posted do count, since this is a new feature. But wait! For every 100 ratings after that, I'll award an additional 1000 HG Points. The catch is that you're only allowed to reply once to this post for any reason before the deadline passes, and any posts after the deadline won't count for the extra points. So if you have 300 ratings posted right now but you think you can hit 400, please hit 400 before replying. There is a firm limit of 10,000 bonus points.
Remember that the Wii will be given away early next week, so this could be your last chance for a major points push in time for that all-important prize drawing!

600 and done. That was a painful challenge.

Don't worry about adding points, Usurper. I've added his points already!
And in fact, he had 5000 coming. So that's what I added. I'll take care of adding any points as a result of this topic.

I'm posting with 614 ratings.

Okay, that's everyone awarded their points up to this point (this post is just for my own personal reference). Keep those ratings coming in, people! We are off to a GREAT start!

300 ratings submitted in a single day? This is madness!
User: siara79 Title: Phew Posted: December 09, 2007 (03:52 PM)
201 ratings reporting in, sir! :D
(I'll do more when I'm not sick of being in front of the computer.)

Everyone who has posted up to this point in the thread has been taken care of...

I've been doing this all day and I'm sick of it. I'm stopping at 600 and will gladly cash in on my 5000 HG points, please. Thanks and good luck to all those involved, especially me.

Okay, everyone in the topic again has had the points awarded. So you all know, I plan to check this topic one last time around 9PM Monday evening (so about 20 hours from now). I may check between now and then, but that's the last time I'll be checking. At that time, I will award any remaining bonus points. Then I plan to do the drawing around 11PM (PST) and announce the winner shortly thereafter. None of that is official, set-in-stone sort of stuff, but it's the general plan.
