    Yes I see most of you encouraging that behaviour alot which is very well founded, didn't know you could track whomever spams negative votes, that's good because that was something worrysome.
    Better to uplift the helpful user than focus only degrading the conflictive one, they will be their own undoing
    in time.

    Pretty much what I rep up also, except with the inclusion of good humor.

    So I know Emergence hinted it at it possibly in another thread, but...does rep we get in the Off-topic section no longer count? I got uprepped just recently there and unless I was conveniently downrepped before I noticed my count didn't change :|

    I have a question, I can't see any + or -, is that because my account is still new and I will receive the ability to up people after some time/some posts?

    You need I think, 35 posts to rep people up or down. So in a little bit you'll see them.

    this topic was very helpful, as i tried reading the FAQ for the answer but did not find anything in there, is there anyway to put something about rep/points in the FAQ so people can easily go look it up there if there is no one online to answer their questions?

    Acidic found out about this by beating on a wall in the catacombs whilst wearing the son's mask and wielding a lantern and a fire halberd after kneeling three times in front of it.

    Trust me Acidic, if I've learned anything from anime, it is that women in short skirts will never get cold, be injured by demons, or find out their super human male friend is secretly in love with them.

    that is so true, but if you wear a jacket in an anime, normally you start to get cold.

    Yeah, but at least if you get mortally wounded, just wrap some bandages around your open cavities, and you'll be healed in the next episode.

    or the next few episodes depending on how important you are to the main plot, and also don't forget that getting nicked in the side or somewhere else on the body will have heavy consequences when fighting your evil counterpart, but you'll be good to go by the time you get the end boss.

    Fex went silent, this can not be good. Either she is upset, playing the drinking game, or Jimmy had with her...or all of the above

    I may have accidentally hit Jimmy with my lightning halberd a few times and he may be dead for this playthrough.

    Well, jimmy will have vengeance, I assure you. Me and yolky, as well as my skeletal midget comrades and skull lantern, will find her and consume her.

    For Jimmy! :bas:
