I recently received a geek mail stating the following:

Quote:
Congratulations - you have received the following microbadge for receiving at least 10000 thumbs!



You can configure your microbadge here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/microbadge/edit

Please enjoy this microbadge!

Pretty cool I thought, and I went to check out other users who had recently received this badge too, by clicking on it to see the owners and then sorting by recent.

was showing as someone that fairly recently received his golden meeple as well, which I thought odd since he's been around since the beginning.

To my surprise, upon reviewing derk's contributions, he's only nabbed around 7500 thumbs or so!

The truth about ThumbgateTM must go forward! Our evil and corrupt overlords are cheapening the microbadge that I worked hard to earn by posting random crap in chit-chat and lame image comments!

Do not be surprised if my account is deleted within minutes of this post, but hopefully the truth will still be out there.

Didn't it used to be some mystery why anyone had it to begin with? I know the whole 10k thumbs thing is a recent change.

Just so. The old theory posited by Legomancer was that the Golden Meeple were awarded to people who had saved Aldie from a burning building.

the golden meeple is for each 5.000 thumbs.
I`ve got three of them so far.

So the text in the mail should have been: You received another golden meeple ro receiving another 5000 ...

Nope.

You get a golden meeple for every 5k thumbs, but you get the microbadge at 10k.

Yeah, it is a bit off that thumbs for chit-chat and RSP posts get tallied.

I'm a very very bad man. Anyone wanna spank me...? Puh-lease..?

Honestly, I don't know how it got there. I thought I deleted it from my library of micros at one point, but perhaps I just dreamed I did it. I shall do so now...

I have been here since the beginning, but tend to not post thumb-friendly stuff, so I'm a bit behind in the thumb count. Does it count that I entered 99% of the material in the database for the first two years..? goo

Jonnylawless has been paid off!

Look who gave him his 25 gold tip:


Far from having his account deleted he will soon be posting an, "Oops, my mistake." message. We already have the "Oops my bad" from Derk. Let me guess, your chief of staff did it without your knowledge? How long before the truth is acknoledged? Can you bury it forever?

So, have THEY bought you for 25gg? Have they jonny? Have they?

Yeah, they need to come up with a platinum version for those who reach 10,000 without ever succumbing to the avidity on the bad side of the tracks.

How about Chit Chat Thumbs are only worth 1/4 of a normal thumb?
