    well thats weird coz.. there were 48 commenst from me and 46 comments from backbone when the contest finished for july month

    then how come my comments are reduced by 3…

    can’t understand this mathematics

  2. Darknet August 1, 2007 at 12:05 pm #

    That was at midnight here on July 31st, the contest is according to my time zone because after that I’m asleep so I can’t check.

  3. Sandeep Nain August 1, 2007 at 12:14 pm #

    if you look at second last comment on this article. you will see my last post for the month was at 11.41PM 31st july. and that was my 48th post. and nobody else posted any comment after that…

    so, i am supposed to be the winner with maximum number of posts.
    i understand u r the owner/moderator, but competition should end according to the date/time of the server (which is displayed) and not according to your sleep time ;)

    and moreover it takes only 1 sql query to find the maximum number of posts by 1 person in a given month…

  6. Darknet August 1, 2007 at 4:41 pm #

    Relax Sandeep, there’s 12 months in a year – I’m sure you can win if you keep up your commenting as you’ve been doing this month.

    Remember it’s not simply about quantity aswell as explained, it’s also about quality and consistency – which are taken into consideration.

    Like most things in life, in the end everyone gets their just deserts.

    Congrats Backbone

  8. backbone August 2, 2007 at 5:25 am #

    One Love!

    therealdonquixote needs to win in august.

  11. TheRealDonQuixote August 6, 2007 at 9:52 pm #

    Thnx Dan. Alas, its both quantity and quality, that wins the prize. I try to only speak when I have something important to say so that means I don’t write too much ;)

    Hey, Darknet, when are you gonna get a forum up in here?

  12. backbone August 7, 2007 at 5:51 pm #

    TRDQ: check out the affiliates ;) and that should answer the question about the forum…

  13. TheRealDonQuixote August 8, 2007 at 11:06 pm #

    BackBone: I meant a forum just for Darknet readers. That affiliate link isn’t just for us Darknet lovers. Silly.

  14. backbone August 8, 2007 at 11:58 pm #

    but just think about it? would you like every day to read a topic that “how do I hack yahoo/gmail/etc”, because I’ve you would have read older articles, you would have seen stuff like this. Or maybe I am wrong and many commenter’s have grown up XD

  15. TheRealDonQuixote August 9, 2007 at 12:05 am #

    BKBN – Yeah you have a point, but if the Darknet Forum was via registration (not like the comment areas on the posts, a whole seperate subdomain or something) then there could be a simple test to see if one was knowledgeable enough to be able to register. Like how you used to start that one war game “Mod-X”, only the little tests would have to be randomized or the answers would be all over the net.
