Million countdown

Let me know if something is not working, or you think something could be made better.

Million countdown

Postby Heid the Ba » Mon Dec 25, 2017 7:13 pm

Twice today I have worked the countdown to 2 years, 0 months, 0 days, and after another post it goes got 1 year, 12 months, 5 days. Is this some form of Xmas maths?

I'll look at it at some point. There are a few other things I want to do to it anyway. I'm just not sure when it will be.

And remember, a fast game is a good game.

The sooner we finish the 1,000,000 game, the sooner we can start the 2,000,000 game.

Hawt Dayum, folks, we've been letting it slip after our last AutoBot run. Only 80 per day in the last month, putting our end date in the 2040s. Are we going to pick up speed or is it time to unpack the flame thrower again?

I vote for speed

When we get to zero, we can always extend it to go to negative 1 million (if we run out of things to do)

Okay, it's shut down. But you know, all you guys need to do is close the page and it will stop running. Mine would still go until I got home, but if everyone else is posting manually, mine will just throw in a few now and then.

Yeah, but since it only takes two to tango, the Bot rushed right by the mojo stuff. Ah, well, see you at 654,321...

I was gone all day yesterday. I'm sorry.

Incentive to give the mods the ability to turn it on and off. It'll take some coding to do that. I'll try.

What happens on IRU, stays on IRU :D

I'd welcome a new switch to fiddle around with for my daily shot of power craze as a mod :glp-adminpower: (does that exist with "mod power", too?)
