Turtle points disappearing?? Bigmike whats up?
« on: Apr 09, 2010, 10:36:00 PM »
OK, I really don't care about the turtle points, but why are mine disappearing?   :headscratch:  Did I piss somebody off?  I know that you can give/take them.  But why would anybody want to go and just take them from certain people.  I know that there are a handful of us that have posted up about this before already.  Unless it's a programming issue.  

I know there are several posts on this.

I'd really like to see Mike to just make the turtle thing just disappear, especially if the turtle game isn't gonna come back.   :dunno:

Meh I pissed in some dumb high school kids cereal and mine started going away.  I was perfectly happy to see them stopped at 666 but then someone had to take a couple more. :talkingn:

Lotta good that did, I was at 666 for about 2 minutes and someone took another one.  :headscratch:  I want the turtle game back too, I sucked at it so all my points were given by members not from the game..  :eyebrow:

Yep, it's been happening for about 2 weeks...........

I wonder if the people with the negative points are getting points given to them?

Damn, maybe you're right and obamanation is redistributing our turtle points to those less fortunate?

:rofl: So if Obama is spreading the wealth of turtle points to the disadvantaged turtles does that mean I get a free crawler since I'm in the - bigtime? If so it makes all this effort worth it.

Yeah I was wondering what was up with that. I had 52, and then didn't really log on for a couple weeks and came back and I was at 0. I don't really care but it was surprising, considering I had been sitting on 52 points for years lol

i was wondering this too, there are a few i know that are getting hella points jacked, and certin people gaining points freakishly fast. I had 8 like 3 weeks ago now im -60. I know I pissed in someones cherios but that was awhile ago now, then i log one a week after the post and bam points droppin fast.

when I joined marlin i think the turtle game had just stopped. Then came back not that long ago then went away real quick. I wasnt fast enough tho.

The last round of turtle hunting was tainted.  I'd be checking pm's or editing my profile, see a turtle and click on it and get a message that somebody else beat me to it.  This happened all the time and I always got the same message.

Three months ago I was at 150 pts.  I had 50 when I started this post.  I haven't been on in two days and I've lost 8 since.


I'm not sure, but I'm leaning towards maybe a programming issue.  Because I found some old user that hasn't been on for years, and tried to take away points to see what happened.  It will only let you "take" a few points in a certain time frame.  If not, there are a ton of people out there taking points like mad.  :dunno:

I have to wonder who even concerns themselves with taking points away from others.  If somebody really goes above and beyond and gives a nice clear explanation of something, maybe with some links, pictures, etc., absolutely I give them a point.  But otherwise, who does that?  Is somebody going around reading posts going "I like you"..."I hate you"..."I like you"..."I hate you"?

For a bunch of people that say they don't care about the points I've noticed them going nuts. It may have started as one person but whoever started it is causing a reaction from you all. The link below will explain the points.
