It's silly and boring. The big blue dota are annoying. Please stop.

What's a dota? Sadie, it's not that intrusive really (the big blue "dota" I mean). Not many forums even have the game and the ones where participants are engaged have tried to be respectful to others that could not care less.

It's your right not to like, but you are a visitor in Topix's home... their rules. Although, if the game really disturbs you, send feedback. Might not get you any satisfaction, but at least you expressed your personal displeasure.

It's a game you can choose to play or not. Some enjoy it, some think it's lame, but no one is forced to play. If you opt out of playing, do you still see the dots?

I would rather post for points than have to get 8 "I"s in a row trying to spell Topix or look at 100 threads. At first I had fun with it but then it grew old somewhat quickly. I use it to sometimes pass time.

Yeah, those multiple letters in a row gets old fast. I've gone to the second page for stars -- it seems they're not duplicated as much.

I've never felt the need to GETALLTHEPOINTS!!!! I just do my 100 posting points, spell TOPIX, give/get props, and get the 16 in the upper left. Not gonna visit 100 threads for 100 stupid points.

It's a game, play it or not. But don't begrudge those who play it.

Hell, tonight all I've gotten are freakin' "O"s, one after the other... no easy 50 pts for me, I guess.

Suppose I'll just go post for points. May you all get the dota you want.

I went for one letter per random back page (e.g., jumping straight to page 9 / 21 / 30 etc) and got all the lletters first time. Not sure if it's always like that, but could worth a try.

I wonder if, when you advance levels, they have a macro that makes you go back a certain number of pages before you can get all your letters... haven't done it today, but yesterday I had to go back 3 pages...

Hmmmm....

Hey, two rather ordinary posts are missing from this thread. One where someone really got on me for saying the blue dots were boring, and one of mine just saying "Oh, well, I'm outnumbered" or something like that.

Why would Topix delete two such harmless posts???

Good grief.
