      How can we make the bio-points worth something? They don’t really worth anything now…

      Oh! Well, I want to have it and turn it on but let someones else to pay the bill ahahahahahaa πŸ˜€

      About bio point, I wonder how they count it to get some points. I mean what is the criteria? For example: When I post an explanation about certain topic, and my writing is very biological, I earn some points that is less than when I wrote an offtopic post that is very nonbiological, something like kidding around or even just say hello and welcome… hmm…

      I am sorry my term might not properly here πŸ˜€

      I asked Tyson (admin) for the formula to calculate and the use of the Bio-points, and I stil haven’t had any answers…
      For the calculation 2 things are obvious: it depends on the length of the post, and you don’t get any for posts in the Off-topic sections. And the mods can change your cash at will, so beware πŸ˜‰

      the criteria is probably the length. But don’t write useless things to get bio-points, remember we can edit your posts. 😈 Just kidding of course… πŸ˜›

      We earn bio points from the length of our post? πŸ˜• Uff that answer doesn’t satisfy me, that’s not scientific at all hehe sorry πŸ˜† I mean the length of post could have nothing to do with bio stuff. I could write super long post with just a little bio info to get more bio points, whereas my shorter post that explain a bio question will earn less. IMO that’s not “bio point”, that’s something we could say as err… “power point” because the more power we expend to write to have a longer post will earn more point rather than the shorter one which we expend less power to write ahahahahaa πŸ˜› πŸ˜† (It’s time for Dr.Stein to take her headache pills) πŸ˜†

      No the people posting in this thread seems to post only in this thread, and their posting it to say the least cryptic. But they do not break any rules so they can just go on. But if it was entirely for me I would create a “conspiracy theorist” board under the Off-topic section for them to post (or just ban them to save server space…). But I do not believe that this kind of censorshio is worth anything so I prefer to stay amazed at this load of crap (can’t help reading their post to figure out where they are going…) and keep it where it is.

      Fiber disease forum is especially helpful to me. I have learned more from this topic than any other one on here. I hope you ALL get the fiber disease. That way you would appreciate it as much as I.

      Looks like they are drawing alot of atention to your board. You should appreciate that. How many visitors come just to check it out? It seems to attract more people than the PUBES topic.

      As I said, people posting there do not seem to be posting anywhere else. Hence I wonder if in a general point of view it is good or not for the board.

      But I am surprised that besides the feeling that you may not be alone and the compassion that you may see here, you can truly understand anything that is said there.

      ohhh…….

      Yes, exactly. If it were not for the “Fiber Disease” topic I would never have come to your wonderful board. In fact, I now spend countless hours reading about things like pubes, mastrubation, and something I just learned about today was oh, yeah, something called a migrene.

    • #35008
      canalon
      Participant

      What I am saying, and Barz is not much of an exception is that the fiber disease seem a world closed on itself, and people posting there mostly do not post anywhere else. Which considering what I read there is far from being a problem for me. Or maybe it is because I feel concerned that some people having some real problems (whatever their nature) have, as only answers, things like what Tamtam, London (to cite the most prolific posters on the thread) are giving? That is a mix of techno-gibberish, random bits of scientific news, conspiration theories, and not much facts (on some occasions I have seen suggestions to watch a movie or pictures, without any link to them…).

      So even if there is a lot of rubbish and very naive questions on the rest of the board (and a lot of misspelling too, of which I am also in some extent guilty) none seem as purposefully deceptive as what I can see in the “Fiber disease” thread. And I definitely wonder if it’s a good advertisement. But I won’t censure it because no rules is broken, and I truly believe taht even the most bizarre opinions can be expressed as long as they respect the others.

      New guy, I can assure you that this is a relevant topic. The people using it are from another web site who found someone posting on this site with the information they need to help them find out what is causing their debilitating disease. I am glad it is entertaining to you all. I hope you will be a little more understanding. I know it is quite cryptic. However, apparently someone needs to be cryptic. We will take the information regardless. It helps. This is a disease that has been going on for some time. The CDC will not touch it. The medical field will not touch it. We have to find the answers for ourselves. We will take what we can get. Thanks for your understanding. As long as some of us can take the info and apply it to what we know, it is not too hard to follow. According to how many views this topic gets, I am sure you can see how valuable it really is.

      Yes, very much. So now I need to get this back on topic even though I have no new information….so I guess I’ll just start a rumor,

      If you get 5,000 posts, you will be sent an email that gives you a coordinate. You will have to decode and follow the coordinate to a specific location within 98 hours. Digging at that location will reveal a treasure chest and in the chest will be a riddle. Solving the riddle will give you an Instant Messenger screen name of a mysterious stranger who will ask you three questions. If you answer all three correctly, he will give you a key which unlocks a door in Poland. Behind the door is a telephone. If you pick up the telephone and press the "redial" button, you will be connected to the user known here as Admin and he may or may not have the answer to your quest.

      Just a rumor πŸ™‚

      Just a question: Why is there a limitation on how many posts we make in one day? I always experience this. I post a thing and I can see a message box telling me that my post is too much or more than alloted amount blah-blah-blah something like that, so I do not earn bio-point for my message. Actually I never count my bio-points, I love to type and post and let just let it runs but this limitation annoys me. Why oh why does it exist? πŸ˜• πŸ™„ πŸ™‚

      I see I still get 18.47 or so for these late two days though I posted bunches of posts, which some satisfy people pretty well. Also, I still get the similar message about my exceeded post. How could that be? I think the limitation only for a 24 hour, now it is already 2×24 hours? πŸ™„ And my English seems so terrible in this post πŸ˜† 😳 πŸ˜›

      "You have exceeded the alloted amount of posts and will not earn anything for your post"

      May I suggest that if you avoid the simple :lol:’s, "I don’t know but…" or some off-topic posts (out of the off-topic forum I mean), your post count will be lower and this message will appear less frequently. Of course you don’t have to do what I say, it’s just a friendly suggestion.

      As for the Limit I think (considering my own experience) that it takes ito account the last 24h (rolling). Hence even if you exceed the limit, your posts are still counted and adding, so if you really want to get some more points, take a break. Now considering how useful they are…

      Since the biopoint counter counts both number of posts and the length of the post the dily limit is to prevent people from getting 1000 bioposts when they post a very long paper
