Good luck to ya - it ain't happening...    ...besides - why would I want to give you and Rol free badges?!?!? We all know you guys would max those out, as soon as I turned it on.



By the way, before I go to bed, might as well add one more thing here. When you have a quote notification in a thread, but the quote isn't in the first page of new posts, the icon then turns orange despite the quote still being unread. This has existed for quite a while, but it's a minor enough thing that I was never bothered to talk about it. But since @TalonMan seems to be on a roll lately, and I just noticed this happening to me on another thread, I figured it was a good time to mention it. If for some reason it just can't be fixed, at least it's no big deal anyway.

I'm going to sleep now, good night.

If you click the title, does it take you to the right spot in the thread? 



It doesn't seem to be possible to subscribe to threads that you've posted. The "subscribe to thread" button isn't there, only "edit thread".

Also, I mentioned this elsewhere already, but it would be nice to be able to use different date formats for thread bets because at the moment all of my bets for May look like they end in November which obviously looks very strange.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I have a suggestion too. Badges for X amount of vg$ paid in ban fines. Yesterday I noticed that vg$ have their own tab on the profile page and viewed the first page of my transactions. Apparently you get fined 20 vg$ per day you have been banned for, so I lost quite some money over the course of the last several years.

You can view it here: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9008216

You only noticed yesterday, the VG$ tab??? I posted a thread announcing this, nearly a month ago: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=239852

Maybe you guys can help me come up with a better way of notifying people regarding updates and enhancements, 'cause I gotta tell you, it's getting REALLY frustrating to announce things like this, and then find out even regular people like yourself have no idea!!!

...to your post, I think badges for VG$ spent on bans, kinda defeats the purpose. We have badges for remaining OUT of bans (which should be viewed as a tool to encourage GOOD behavior) - having badges for VG$ spent on bans, would have the opposite effect and encourage bad behavior. 

I only noticed it this week because someone asked about vg$, so that was the reason why I looked up if vg$ have a page similar to points on the profile page. I had no reason on my own to care about vg$.

I think a lot of updates and enhancements get overlooked because they concern things that have little to no importance to most people. You know that something like the Agree button received a lot more attention, simply because more people care about such funtionality. Doesn't mean that the minor things you add are bad, but there's no reliable method to make people care much more than they do now; it isn't matter of how you announce it because attention is closely linked to the interest that people have for any given feature.

As for the suggested badges, I merely piggybacked on COKTOE's joke and made one of my own. I doubt that he was serious about it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Free badges??? Do you know how hard it is to get such an amount of badges.
You not getting any seems more like the issue haha

Not when it's the last or first post of a page (though occasionally it works). When it's the last post of a page, it'll usually take me to the top of the page rather than the bottom, and when it's the first post of a page it normally takes me to the last post of the previous page.

But, that's not what I was talking about.

And yes - in fact, I did answer you about the date thing - I've just got a full plate at the moment, but I'll get to it eventually. In the meantime, just accept the fact that the way the dates currently post now, make sense to those of us from the US - and the date format you propose to see, makes almost no sense to us...

I know that's not what you were asking, but they're sorta related (in a technical sense) which is why I asked...

Go with the "Asian" YYYY-MM-DD format then everyone has to think about it since it isn't their standard one.
