Default A bragging place

Frankly, I'm tired of going through TWPR and seeing "500 posts" or "my rep is up" posts. They can get annoying sometimes. Is there another place we could put these?

i think johnny's idea has merit, but i honestly don't think its a big problem really, and if it does bother you, just don't enter the thread.

I have noticed an increase in it lately myself but I think it will be the same kind of thing as all the surveys we had recently, it will die down and everything will be back to normal. I wouldn't be a fan of saying people can only put bragging posts or threads in a certain place, unless it started to become a big problem.

I don't see any point in making the bragging posts, but yeah I like the idea that people can stick them in their diaries.. I also hope it will die down like Alex said.

its usually a cycle thing...its just that this moment in time it is at a higher period...as alex said itll die down.

a place for it alone, doesnt make too much sense.

I kept mine to my diary, but someone (mentioning no names Valerie ) made me a thread lol. I find it pretty annoying, but I'm sure it will die down soon, there's not really any need to make a thread for every tiny little thing.

Before it used to be a thread forr every new face you got pretty much, but now it seems every 1000 posts =/

See I am not a big fan of stickies for this either. Like it is the practical thing to do in one way but in another it is another restriction on what can be done and not, and that is something I am not a fan of. The WPR has always been a place where you can basically let it all out, I think it goes against what it was made for to say things like "You can only post XX here!".

I personally think this wave of bragging will pass as quick as it started.

You can say the same thing about the photo album and the jokes sticky. I see it as a convenience more than a restriction.

I think that these threads are okay, but people shouldn't make them for every 500 points and unless you're the first person to get 4 rep blocks, you really don't need a thread.. Once someone achieves something that no one else has, bringing it up isn't necessarily a nuisance, but once 50 different people get to 4 rep blocks, there is no need for those 50 people to create threads about how they reached 4 rep blocks.. But regarding post count, I think its okay if people make threads every time they get a new sticky, but they should a) wait till they get to 1,000 points (not make a 250 posts YAY thread, then a 500 posts YAY thread, etc) and b) should ONLY do it every time they hit a milestone (a new smiley, or say, somehow manage to surpass Andy in post count). The idea of a sticky for this doesn't seem that bad btw.

Yes, but take for example the puberty forrums. It is NOWEHERE near as bad as the masterbation threads were comming up, but it's still annoying to have to go through multiple threads of "Isnt this great" and "I did it again". I'm not saying we shouldn't recognise acomplishments, I'm just saying I think its getting a little out of hand

Ok, what about an "Achievements" sub-forum for TWPR? This could be fore anything from post count, rep to results from school or the sports team you play for or a medal for something you do.
