335. Not bad, although I don't participate in the forums so it'd be safe to say I could be a ModDB GOD if I wanted to be :P

Sure, you're already a ModDB Extremist anyway.
I hope you didn't "give yourself more points than you're supposed to have, just to appear more of a ModDB-aholic" :D

Well, I know I am weighing in on this a little late, but Arcones you post so much stuff and work on so many mods that if you aren't a Moddb God then, I have to change my religion. ;p

Ahahahahaha! My laugh for the day. Thank you my good fellow!

Although if we did count projects worked on, then yeah, I'd have a lot more points :P

I didn't count games or mods posted because they don't really have much relevance to liking ModDB. You just want to get your project known.

Whereas, posting groups (most of the time) are ModDB community-based, for sharing stuff.

Oh oh I got another point counter thingy:

If you never delete old conversation threads even if they are dead then you get 1 point for each old thread.

PS: An idea for a new one: You tracked this group, even though there isn't a lot of updates here. xD

238 - Though I'm just wondering why you get bonus points for cheating to give yourself more bonus points...

Also, I thought 42 was a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy reference before I selected it, hehe.
