      All Arcade scores to be reset!

      Romanos will soon be resetting the Arcade scores. The Arcade hasn't gotten much use and this might increase the activity level (great idea, Bill!). Site Supporters have access to the Arcade but if you aren't a site supporter you can gain access through the CH Shop.

      I do not know the frequency of the resetting of the scores. I'm sure this won't be the last time

      Lame. And of course this was Bill's idea.

      No, resetting the scores and announcing they will be regularly reset will just DECREASE activity in the Arcade, as no one will bother to compete if they know their score will be wiped eventually.

      It's a lame idea, Bill, and you know it.

      It just burns you so much that I arrived here and took most of the high scores you were so proud of - that now you come up with this foolish idea suggesting it will "boost numbers" somehow by erasing people's scores. And apparently the Admin has fallen for it.

      That's pretty low, if you ask me.

      For what reason?

      This web-board doesn't have all that many active members. That is why there is not much activity in the Arcade - not for the reason Bill is suggesting.

      He's been stewing since I started taking his high scores and was one of the first to suggest resetting it ages ago. Believe me, the old man wouldn't be suggesting it if he held most of the high scores.

      It's low and it's petty.

      But whatever, reset it and see. It may be just an arcade, but it's still robbing people of their achievements there to reset it.

      Seems to me that Stravinsk worked hard for his records. I have very little hope of beating those scores but that doesn't discourage me from playing. I do not play because I do not like computer games very much

      PS: the rules of the games could be changed so that the current high score holder gets some sort of reward and then his/her high score lasts only a week or a month and disappears or all the scores disappear. Maybe there can be a set day each month when rewards are allocated and scores are reset? Mind you, I do not have a dog in this race so you're free to ignore my comment.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.
