The error is in the screenshot I posted a few posts up. The image link was broken and showed a Tinypic (lol why would you even use that service) "this image has been moved or deleted" error instead.

The sticking-at-one-spice phenomenon that you describe is, from Bronze up, actually part of the system as it stands and not a glitch — I've considered doing an overhaul on the system, since in addition a lot of the increments seem kinda random and it might be better to have them bound to logical milestones like 1'000 and 2'000 posts, but right now I have things to do other than force everyone into a game of Spice Rank Musical Chairs. razz Maybe tomorrow I might implement something for the interim.

Speaking of moved or deleted images;

The Who's Online graphic is missing for me. Anyone else having this problem? I believe the plan was to replace it anyhow, if I remember correctly.

I had it on my list for a while, but later decided I was comfortable enough with the old one and let it be. razz

However, I cobbled something together yesterday when I noticed it was broken, how's this?

I recently found a site about 'Funny and Stupid Customer Stories', and it's been making me laugh so I thought I'd share. Wizard

Quote :
(Note: our customer support number is close to a local driving school’s number.)

Me: “Thank you for calling. How may I help you?”

Customer: “How much for my daughter?”

Me: “Um…”

Customer: “She’s 16. It’s her first time. She needs training.”

Me: “Sir, I think you want the driving school.”

Customer: “Oh, what do you guys do?”

Me: “Adult websites.”

Customer: “Oh…OH! Oh my God!”

Okay, this one was too good not to share.

Quote :
(I work in the guest services department of a major theme park. A Hispanic twenty-something mother and her young son approach the desk.)

Me: “Yes, ma’am, how can I help you?”

Mother: “Hello, I… no find… boy… hat.”

Me: “Pardon?”

Mother: “I no… look…”

(I switch to Spanish, which I can speak fairly well after four years studying it in high school.)

Me: *in Spanish* “Do you speak Spanish?”

Mother: “Oh, yes! Thank you so much! While my son and I were riding the roller coaster, he lost his hat and we came to see if you could send anyone to find it.”

Me: “I’m afraid we can’t send anyone to look under the roller coaster until after the park closes, but we can give you a gift certificate to buy a new hat for him at the shop.”

Mother: “That would be excellent! Thank you!”

(A burly-looking man, who is waiting for a park representative in the seating area, stands up and shouts at me.)

Man: “Hey! What the h*** do you think you’re doin’, boy?!”

Me: “Excuse me?”

Man: “You talkin’ that [racial slur] language? The h***’s wrong with you? You just encouragin’ them—” *points at the mother and son* “—to come over here like they own this country!”

Me: “Well, sir, I speak English and Spanish. This lady seemed to be having trouble with her English, so I thought I’d try Spanish.”

(He walks over to the counter, and puts his face right in mine.)

Man: “That’s a bunch of bull-s***! They came to our country, so they gotta learn to talk our language! You just gonna let them win by speakin’ their language?!”

Me: “Uh… win what?”

Man: “Man, it’s because of f****** like you that they think they can just come in here and tell us what to do!”

(He gives the woman a dirty look, and she becomes very frightened. I push the silent security alert button under the counter. Suddenly the little boy moves, and stands in front of his mother.)

Son: “Quit bein’ mean to my mama, poop head!”

Man: “You gonna make me, you little [racial slur]?”

Son: “They will!”

(He points out the glass door, as two security officers approach.)

Security Guard #1: “I’m going to have to ask you to come with us, sir.”

Man: “For what?! Defending America?!”

Security Guard #2: “For threatening our other guests. If you don’t come peacefully, we will restrain you.”

(The man grits his teeth, and seems to be considering fighting the guards, but after a moment he gives up and goes with them.)

Me: “Adios!”

Man: “F*** you, f**!”

(I turn to the mother and son, and start speaking to them in Spanish again.)

Me: “I’m sorry about that man, ma’am. He won’t bother you again.”

Mother: “Thank you! I thought he was going to hit me.”

Son: “I won’t let him hurt you, mama!”

Me: “Young man, since you were so brave, I’m going to give you an extra gift certificate, so you can get a cartoon character doll, too.”

Son: “Wow! You’re so nice, mister!”

EDIT: Oh my gawd, this is seriously a gold mine.

Quote :
(I work in a coffee shop. I am on break in the lobby when a couple walks in. Directly behind them is a cute little boy in Batman costume.)

Me: “Oh my God! It’s BATMAN!”

(The boy stops, strikes a pose and starts looking around menacingly. After a few seconds, he approaches the counter.)

Mother: “Jeff, would you like a chocolate milk?”

Boy: “I am not Jeff. I am The Batman.”

Mother: “The Batman, would you like a chocolate milk?”

Boy: “Yes. Yes, The Batman would.”

(The couple pays while the boy sits down with his chocolate milk. He keeps a stern look on his face as he sips the drink.)

Boy: *sips* “Gotham is safe.”

Quote :
(I’m half-Chinese, but with my sunglasses on, people usually can’t tell. I’m fluent in Mandarin. One day I get a text from my friend, a grade-school teacher.)

Friend: “You speak Chinese, right?”

Me: “Yeah, why?”

Friend: “Come down to [intersection] around noon and explain what the f*** is going on.”

(At my lunch break I head down there. On one side of the street is a crowd of school kids, while on the other side an elderly Chinese man with an ice cream cart.)

Kid #1: “I’m gonna do it.”

Kid #2: “No way.”

Kid #1: “Yeah way. I’m fast enough!”

Kid #2: “You’re not Chinese.”

Kid #1: “So?”

Kid #2: “Only [Chinese name] can do it.”

Kid #1: “I’m gonna do it.”

(Kid #1 dashes across the street, yanks back the cover of the cart, and grabs a handful of ice cream. He takes off, but the vendor catches him, pinning both arms behind his back.)

Vendor: “Ah, three bars? Your total is $9.28.”

Kid #1: “Lemme go!”

(The vendor removes some money from the kid’s pocket with his free hand.)

Vendor: “Cash paid is $20.”

Kid #1: “Yeah, yeah, I know the drill.”

(While still holding the struggling kid, the vendor deposits the $20 in his till and takes out change.)

Vendor: “Your change is $10.72.”

(The vendor puts the change and ice creams in a bag and hands them to the kid, who takes off.)

Vendor: “Have a nice day!”

Kid #2: “Told you.”

Kid #1: “Fine! Okay, [Chinese name], you do it!”

(A short Chinese boy steps forward. His clothes are patched and despite the weather, he’s not wearing a coat.)

Chinese Kid: “Let us meditate… on the way of the wind.”

(He strikes a ridiculous pose and exhales loudly. The other kids jump back.)

Chinese Kid: “…on the way of the snake…”

(New pose, hissing loudly. The others back away even more.)

Chinese Kid: “…on the way of the hawk.”

(He flaps his arms and jumps in a circle. The kids are a good twenty feet away now.)

Chinese Kid: “The meditation is done.”

(He runs up to the ice cream vendor and grabs a handful of bars. The vendor strikes him with an exaggerated karate chop which the kid easily blocks.)

Chinese kid: *flees, speaking Chinese* “Thank you, Mr. [Name]!”

Vendor: *shakes his fist angrily, also in Chinese* “Sorry, we are out of lime today!”

(The Chinese kid kicks towards the vendor from across the street.)

Chinese kid: “My mother says she hopes your leg feels better!”

Vendor: *red-faced with rage* “It does! Tell her thank you for the tea!”

(The kids are enthralled. As they eat the ice cream, I approach the vendor.)

Me: *in Chinese* “What just happened?”

Vendor: “Oh… you understood. That little boy is a new immigrant, and all the other children mocked him because he is small and weak. He told them Chinese people have special powers, and they beat him up and told him to prove it. But I overheard and whispered to him to rob me. Now we have a deal.”

Me: “How wonderful!” *pointing behind him* “Hey, can you tell what that is?”

(As he turns around, I drop some money on the cart and grab a bar of ice cream, fleeing.)

Vendor: “You forgot your change!”

Me: *shakes my fist* “It’s a tip!”

Kids: “Whoa! How did you do that?”

(I slip off my sunglasses. The Chinese kid bows to me and I bow back.)

Kid #2: “Told you they have special powers. Never bully a Chinese kid, man. Never!”

Well I thought there'd be at least one post after my last one, since you lot are so talkative O_o 

Anyway, wanted to announce that I finally have Spore working on a good computer again. This does not mean that I can join Game Night or play Steam Games since I'm only installing Spore onto the computer (it's a family computer, so I can't bog it down). Even then, I'm studying for the trial HSC exams so I won't have time to play it often anyway.

Spore is still pretty awesome to play every once in a while even though the community is pretty much dead (it is still dead, right? I haven't taken a good look for a while)

Let me know if you make any good adventures, I'll be sure to play them

I don't even want to look at the state of the community right now. I'm just going to play the game with buddy content only, which surprised me when I saw that I had Delta, Drew, Kitty, Drago, and Isak in my buddy list. If any of you other guys have Spore pages with decent content I'd love to add you.

My adventures are fairly substandard. I'm not as good at creating buildings, ships, or environments like some of the Spore gods like Drew are, and so they end up failing. Hell, my best adventures are made using templates. One was with that Super Mario 64 castle by Wingedyoshi and the other was with a Unicron-like planet that Darewrek made. I desperately tried to make a series called Strike Back, so I suppose they could be worth a play.

There was an error? If we weaved this into the Fall of Spore story that Gelo came up with it could be thought of as a natural disaster that finished the post-apoc city off, or even a planned attack by Maxis to destroy what remained of the five year old game.

It more so was a city that was abandoned, but still with some residents left.

Now, there had been a malfunction similar to a nuclear meltdown. There are several people who rised from the ashes, while previous communities and clubs ceased to exist. Some people who were banished returned, and the only moderator left is still remaining. Meanwhile, people from the other dying city known as "Spore.com" had migrated to the disaster stricken city. They are unsure of the place's customs, it's way of life or the understanding of it's citizens. The new citizens are filled with hope, while the old ones have abandoned it. Now, they still try to go along with their previous way of life. However, the laws aren't as enforced as they used to be and now people are more able to get away with things they shouldn't.

That sounds really epic, I should write something like that..

You and Gelo could put your heads together, since he wrote something very similar to that kind of story. I think it would be nice to se the story of Spore written out like such a tale.
