Messages

Order is based on the assumption that the message is determined by your character age:time since first login ratio. This is useful for calculating time since first login.

It seems to work differently if you're under a certain age, or perhaps under a certain number of loginsresearch.

For the Time ratio template, the arguments are: days part of age, hours part of age, days part of "time since first login", hours part. The ratio is calculated automatically.

Message Age (rounded to hours) Time since first login (rounded to hours) Ratio

The imp on the addictometer says: Ah, Player is a well balanced youngster. Spends only a little time here a day. In short, she is what is technically known as a "slacker". Tsk, tsk. 98 days, 6 hours 1435 days, 17 hours 0.068

The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Ah, Player is a fairly well balanced youngster. Spends only a couple of hours a day here. There's much room for improvement, though. Log on more often! And for longer! 6 days, 10 hours 56 days, 22 hours 0.113
The imp on the addictometer says: Hmm... Player is a borderline case. Spends a decent length of time here, I suppose... but isn't willing to go the extra mile. So close to being addicted... but too lazy to make that extra effort. Tsk, tsk. 6 days, 3 hours 45 days, 0 hours 0.136
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Oh, this one is good. Quite properly addicted! In fact, Player is an example to us all! 195 days, 2 hours 1156 days, 23 hours 0.169
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: This one is a leetle on the addicted side. Not too much of a drooling basketcase, but certainly erring on that side! Either make the effort and stay here longer, Player, or cut down while you can still be saved! 5 days, 7 hours 25 days, 5 hours 0.21
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: This one is a leetle on the addicted side. Not too much of a drooling basketcase, but certainly erring on that side! Either make the effort and stay here longer, Player, or cut down while you can still be saved! 4 days, 22 hours 20 days, 8 hours 0.242
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Oh dear. Dear, dear, dear. You're addicted, leetle Player. I'm sorry I have to tell you that, but if you don't do something now, you'll be lost from Roundworld forever! 399 days, 3 hours 1596 days, 17 hours 0.25
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Oh dear. Dear, dear, dear. You're addicted, leetle Player. I'm sorry I have to tell you that, but if you don't do something now, you'll be lost from Roundworld forever! 10 days, 21 hours 42 days, 1 hours 0.259
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Congratulations, Player! You are now officially 'unsaveable'. You spend so much time here that we'd need a crowbar to get you out. But you're still spending time eating, sleeping, and maybe even going out. I'll expect you to admit your addiction and cut down on these non-essential activities very soon! 96 days, 21 hours 306 days, 2 hours 0.316
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Congratulations, Player! You are now officially 'unsaveable'. You spend so much time here that we'd need a crowbar to get you out. But you're still spending time eating, sleeping, and maybe even going out. I'll expect you to admit your addiction and cut down on these non-essential activities very soon! 109 days, 9 hours 332 days, 2 hours 0.329
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Good, good! You are a nice candidate for the ranks of 'Drooling Discworld Zombie', Player! You have the vacant eyes and the lolling tongue down pat. Put in a bit more effort here, and you'll be one of us in no time! 118 days, 17 hours 338 days, 22 hours 0.35
The imp on the addictometer exclaims: Woohoo! You've made it to the rank of 'Drooling Zombie', Player, but since you're quite clearly impossible to save, I'd expect to see a little more effort from you. I mean, you're obviously spending some considerable time doing other things. Re-evaluate your priorities!! 37 days, 12 hours 98 days, 0 hours 0.383
The imp on the addictometer asks: Ah, welcome to the cusp Player! You're currently spending less time on Discworld than you are elsewhere. Just a little more effort will change that precarious balance and send you spiralling into the pit of Sleepless Nights Spent Glued To Discworld! Don't be put off by the name. It's actually quite fnu. And no, that's not a typo, it's a Discworldism, proves me right, does it? 7 days, 1 hours 16 days, 16 hours 0.423
