I was always a little bit surprised the requirements for a syndrome weren't lowered in all this time.

even with the past few days happening

Honestly, I don't think I could ever have enough to say to reach them, even with all this activity. I feel like, after a few turns of a thread, I don't have anything else to add any more.

With a bit of dedication and sillyness and a lot of luck, I feel like I could reach Reinfors 1. But doing that and keeping post quality reasonable, I'm not sure.

also are we actually starting the JCS again now or just mentioning it

I'm fairly positive it's just mentioning it. The persistent JCS was "officially" (IIRC) killed a long time ago.

these JCS-like threads have sort of appeared occasionally during periods of high forum activity though

JCS was a thread that grabbed the rankings from the JCS page, added them up as the month went, and then people discussed about it and various other things in the JCS thread

it was killed because, IIRC, it encouraged too many bad posts

i thought ultimately it was just cuz there wasn't enough activity to warrant it? well, that and Colin kinda disappeared after a while, and he was the one running the threads...

but yeah, there used to be a thread where people got points according to where they ranked on the JCS page. if we got 400 or more posts in a day on the entire board, the top 10 were given points; otherwise, it was just the top 5, and then a leaderboard was kept of who had the most points. the points were reset every month, and each thread was monthly. it was controversial from time-to-time i think cuz yeah it encouraged spamminess, but i think the solution usually was just to reprimand spammers in some way...

all the old JCS threads from when it was restarted in 2009 to 2012 are archived in the Display Case. and here's the original March 2009 thread from when it was "rebooted" the first time which actually does a pretty good job of explaining what the JCS is and why it existed :p

The first days of this forum going public were quite a thing, helped quite a bit by my life going... sideways, at the time. The board was my escape.

A little of column A, a little of column B... The staff (myself included) saw it as just encouraging people to post post post without thinking or reading what they were even replying to, making a lot of noise and making the board move needlessly fast. It also disadvantaged people who took the time to write longer, thoughtful replies (like this and yours) as opposed to short replies or jokes, like most of my posts ...

It got cancelled and restarted and cancelled and restarted a few times, but in the end the lack of activity did it in for good; there's not much to award when a few days had nobody post at all.

All in all, the JCS link — that is, Acmlm Jul Championship Series — should probably have been purged at some point, but it's one of those historic cruftules that doesn't get in the way enough to bother.

ftr, i don’t support actually reinstating JCS; i pointed it out as a rhetorical device re: the activity in this forum. actually, it’s pretty funny that the link to JCS is still prominently displayed in the top link panel. we could honestly probably safely remove it from the top panel and no one will complain.

What if the JCS would incorporate postcount and postlengh (without HTML)?

Wouldn't that inspire some more thought out posts?

It would just encourage people to write like Charles "why yes I was paid by the word, how did you ever guess" Dickens, which isn't really good, either. There really isn't an automated way to tell how good some content is no matter how much techbros keep trying to figure one out

Myst.

Then there is not really a simple and good way to boost activity with such a game then? Pity.
