Another week, another new Quest set -
" I'm not bothering with this one right now...seems like more of a long term quest and it has absolutely nothing to do with the wiki and those are the quests that I like....if I get this quest at some point down the road then ok "yeah I think this is meant to finally stop people from just spamming for a quest...they didn't even put a timer on it...this should take months...though sometimes it would be nice if the quests worked retroactively because then I'd have this one already
" @aztek the lost said:usually plagiarism, or other types of point spamming...the sad part is there are users who brag about the quests they have who don't mention they got a wiki ban in the attempt" @ComicMan24 said:What did they do? "" @danhimself: Yeah, I would like a wiki quest too. I prefer those. "they were fun until everyone started breaking the wiki rules to get them "

" @Lance Uppercut said:You can't see who is following you." Yeah. I wish this were retroactive, because I've got no idea when another mod is going to follow me. "How do you see who's following you? I know see the list of who I'm following (it's a bit tricky to find/get to). "
" Since I'm a nice mod, if anyone posts on my wall I'll be happy to follow you. :) "Prepare to be flooded! XD
" @Icarusflies said:Well, I like getting mail...so I guess I'll just have to get a snorkle!" Since I'm a nice mod, if anyone posts on my wall I'll be happy to follow you. :) "Prepare to be flooded! XD I too like that this is a slow burner, shame it isn't a wiki one (also whoever cheated on that should so be named and shamed!) as they are always fun. "
This just got posted to front page. If we can't get 1,000 people to do a wiki quest in a week, there's no way this one is even going to get into the double or triple numbers.
I think a mod/staff member or two might be able to pull this off within a week, but I seriously doubt we'll even have 10 people at the end of the week with this quest completed.
haha, they actually did put it there, that's funny...they expect 1,000,000 page views in one week...but the site doesn't even get 350,000 visits a week
" It actually on the front page now, man they keep expecting waaaaay too much XD I will try and view anyone who posts on the topic, and drop in a post on the wall if I have time. "
I do think this is a better quest. It requires two-way interaction for social quests, unlike the last social quest which was just one-way (quester just had to follow/comment on others, didn't require anyone to reciprocate). It would be nice to have some more longer term quests like this.
OK since I am truly a geek I tried to break down some of the mechanics of this.
I think that any view on the page MAY give +1, I asked two non members to view mine but I got some member views just as I did so I can't be positive, but it did look like their views were added.
With member views I asked my friend to view my page again and her view added +1 to my views, Again I can't be positive of anything (Perhaps someone else looked at the exact same time in some eerie coincidence) but I think each view, again from members at least, equals +1. Perhaps there is a time refresh on this over every hour, again a bit of research would be needed.
I asked said same person above, who already wrote on my wall, to write on it again. It got me another on the post count. Each member post, even if already done, seems to count. Again maybe an hour delay between but I wouldn't assume so.
Hopefully this info will help.
