When I had my Batman subscription running I used to get both the regular and variant cover. Imagine my surprise when I found out there was always more than one variant and the regular/variant duo I was getting was in fact just a thinly disguised Cover A/Cover B combo.
I miss the day only a few years ago when Archie variants consisted of just two options. When Archie #1 was rebooted after 666 issues it had 22-23 covers and the vast majority I couldn't find locally, I'd have to find them online at "collectors" prices. Anything resembling ocd stopped at that point. Officially. It sucks to collect a favorite title and know covers exist that I've never seen.

Buzzetta: I like my private little game that has been long since dissolved. I would tally up and keep tabs on suspensions and vacations when they used to publicly announce them. McKnowitall had a few records going with frequency and shortest time between strikes

Buzzetta: I would like to think that the mods are kind of on board with this as they did not poof the thread but locked it. In the last few years, threads have been poofed rather than locked to discourage this tally.

Ditch Fahrenheit: They were definitely on board 5 years ago. In fact, I suspect they were actively manipulating the scoring.

Ditch Fahrenheit: Plus, it's just better forum management to lock a thread rather than poof it. That way everyone has access to the information in the thread afterwards.

Buzzetta: There were those that chose to disrupt for the sake of getting points whenever they saw a thread was on its way out. However, the game did part of the mods job for them. It let them keep track of who and how many times someone was involved in nonsense.
