Title: Addventure index update
Post by: Adama on November 05, 2017, 05:13:37 AM
The October update (http://old.bearchive.com/~addventure/game1/trees/index.html) is now posted.  PyroWildcat (http://old.bearchive.com/~addventure/game1/trees/auth/pyrowildcat.html) was the top author this month (http://old.bearchive.com/~addventure/game1/trees/auth2/auth1710.html).

What with the still-ongoing BEA Login issues (namely, having a login at all), only 582 episodes (http://old.bearchive.com/~addventure/game1/trees/auth/graphs/total.html) were posted this month.

Over 28,000 episodes have been tagged, or about 10% of the total.

That means it's the lowest since December of 2000!

Yes, and the reason it was so low in December 2000 was that the Addventure was completely shut down for 2-3 weeks that month while MarkT worked on cleaning up a massive flamewar.

It was rather heartening that for a long time afterwards the community was self-policing in that regard.  Any time an argument started, someone would usually jump in and say "Hey, calm down, you don't want the Addventure to shut down again do you?"

Congrats on an almost two decade low, I guess.

Thanks, Adama.

So the number of episodes posted was somewhere between a third and a half of the number in an "ordinary" month.

Not to make this about myself, but I've entered the 1000 post club; the only club I've ever wanted to join.

Congratulations! I've enjoyed reading your episodes.

Has there been any progress made on getting rid of the login, or is Bot Comics still just completely ignoring everybody?

I've been exchanging emails with them.  The last thing I heard, back on Nov 2, was

"As soon as we can we will be changing the permisions of Addventure. We won't leave it as it is now.  I'll keep you posted."

At that time, the developers were still working on fixing bugs in the new Story Club Streaming feature.
