No. Slows down things to have to do more processing on every post displayed.

My personal opinion is that it would need a huge revamp. I actually looked forward to it and quickly got **** off and decided not to play it.

I'd like a reply from an admin that has a post count that would make me think they were around prior to this 6th star.

They added it in sometime in the last year. I don't know the reason why. Maybe cause people wanted more stars?

IIRC, the last big forum update we did standardized how some things looked and behaved. I think standardizing the stars (and letting there be more of them) was a part of that. I normally stay out of the design-/visuals-related sides (being a colourblind minimalist and all,) but I think that's what it was.

5th*


In the beginning, there was the void. a great vast nothingness, filed with the absense of any MMO's except for Legend of the red dragon which was more a BBS thing so it really didn't count. Anyways, Allakhazam said, Lo, and let there be an Allakhazam page with a spinny brass helmet animated gif and a wizard staff and some game info. And it was so. And he did fill in the tables of info, and close unto them the href tags with much zeal. And soon, forumites came to this new land, yet they could not speak, for there was no forum. And Allakhazam said "Let there be forum!" and the UBBforums came into being with a shower of green sparks, which no one was expecting. But there were no stars. And thus did the forumites weep and gnash teeth, for they had farms, yet no stars to farm in them, and thus a great funk befell the land. But Allakhazam heared our pleas, and upgraded UBB to the next version that had stars, and at once we were star stuff! but nevesomuch as to exceed the limit of the fourth star in that time. Mainly because the 5th star kept causing people to spontaniously combust (turns out it was a miscoded image tag, apperently that makes people explode sometimes.)

So, yeah.

While I loved Kaos story, I think it actually had to do with nobody actually having a large enough post count. You got your third star at 1000 and fourth star at 4000 iirc. People kept wondering when the fifth star would finally appear. Eventually someone(Joph? lol) hit 10k and was greeted with "There is no 5th Star".

I miss the no-fifth-star. It was a symbol of allakhazam. Getting rid of it was just blasphemous.

Late question. But can we re-institute a logoff procedure that is url based? ie: I can once again properly use the Smiley: dnp button so that people who click it log themselves off allakhazam?

I completely agree, I was really sad the first time I saw that the old skin was completely gone and I suddenly had a fifth star. It felt dirty. It still does.
