How to get a Server Monkey badge (used to be pretty active in old forums)

  • Well, title says it 🙂
    IIRC I had about 1000 or more posts in the old forums (with the same nickname), and as I just noticed this badge I wanted to ask how I can get it 😉

    Cheers,

  • Your account is kinda recent, it has a little more than a year.

  • You should have been given that badge automatically when the old forum memberships were transferred over to the new forum.
    I guess you got missed somehow, but maybe the mods can manually add it now!

    Yes, in the new forums, but I've been registered in the old forums since - well - 2007 or so, maybe even earlier,
    and also quite active there.
    And isn't this what the Server Monkey badge is about?

    I assume there's no more way to access my profile in the old forums, right?

    EDIT: one of the oldest forum notificatins I've found:

    Well, you might clean it up first ...

    What I did at one point (after 9.50 messed up my mail) was ...

    Damn, I'm getting old gg

  • Sorry, but now I know why I haven't been active in the new forum so far 😛
    Is it really that terrible or am I just to dumb to use it?
    All I wanted is edit it, and now I have 3 posts and none of them is as I wanted it...
    Sorry again, and please delete the double posts.

  • maybe the mods can manually add it now!

    Nope, mods can't do it.

    But you are using the same account here? or did you create a new one for the new forum?

    If the second then it can explain why you don't have such badge. Although i'm using the same account and never got mine. 🙂

    Right, the old forum is gone.

    Damn, I'm getting old

    We all are. 🙂

    You can edit your posts withgin 30 minutes after they have been posted. Just click on the gear icon below your avatar.

  • Unless, of course, a post offends the forum's automatic spam filter, in which case the post will be held for moderation checking and will eventually appear long after the 30 minute editing window has expired - hence it will be un-editable. I speak from harsh experience. 😄

    TBH, I don't remember, but I expect(ed) that if I can import the old one, I wouldn't have (or have even been able to) create a new one...

    WRT editing: I know the 30 min. limit, the fact is that I only wanted to edit the post, but quotes got totally messed up, so I edited again, and then suddenly there where 3 duplicates of the post.

    P.S.: I still have the mail which says "Important announcement about your account — My Opera to shut down" from Dec. 2013,
    and I'm pretty sure that if the possibility existed from the first minute, I would have reused the account.
    So maybe in the 'transition time' there was a mixup of old/imported and new accounts which is way my accound here has never been considered as - well - probably one of the oldest 2% of all Opera accounts ever 😉
