1000+ Wiki points in one night

Google image search + blogs with tons of screen shots of older, less popular games + flashgot firefox plugin = Win!

GB seriously needs to give way more points for text edits, because it would have taken me months to reach 1000 by updating wiki pages.

Congrats!

Yeah, at this point I feel like I should do what you just did just to get my 1000 points. Trying to submit text edits only to have it rejected (regardless of whether it's a good edit or not at this point) or accepted for beans points is really lame. Then again, guess I don't really care that much about points!

Thanks.

I did it for the live edits. Having a good submission rejected because someone in the queue before you copy & pasted from wikipedia sucks.

It only took me about 2 hours. You get a point for adding an image and a point for each gallery you add it to, so for most image uploads you actually get 3 points (1 for upload, 1 for screenshot gallery, 1 for platform specific screenshot gallery).

Bonus: I'm now the top contributor for Wii Sports. :-D
