1130: People start complaining that the "You've been playing Wesnoth too long when..." thread lost all meaning many moons ago.

1131: You agree with HomerJ, and note that this thread probably really only had meaning up until the first 200 or so posts.

All downhill after that.

That sounds like you may want to cut back on the computer time and try sleeping. Your poor eyes.

I believe that we had a series of more meaningful and on-topic posts around 1110 or 1120.

Keep it up, and you will have eye spasms, require hospitalization, or die. Seriously, Wesnoth is not meant to be died over.

1134: You join the Wesnoth forums, and (all in a row) read over 300 ways to tell you've been playing too long.
1135: Your timekilling method whilst say, waiting for a bus, is to try and figure out the % defense everyone you see is on.
1136: You wonder if anyone has posted these before you, and wonder why you find that important.
PS: My first post...probably a bad omen it was here... :wink:

True, In my opinion you should make several posts before asking how things work.

Just wait... :mrgreen:

*Hopes this is a joke.*

Though really, it's not a problem of asking how things work, it's the manner of the asking, or the complaint of why things don't work the way the individual wants them to work.

Of course it's a joke, that's why we have smileys right?
