Cat was a value added in by Andwhy for fun as a reference to a joke made by CookedChef. It sat under your Location and stuff in posts, and was calculated by a really arbitrary formula that values seniority, taking member ID and time since joined in seconds into consideration. Thus, it couldn't be improved by anything the user did at all, and it was sort of a parody of the unnatural pride certain people put into postcount and the like. I had a Cat value of a little less than 3000, I didn't see yours but it was probably far, far higher, given your 5 extra years and your ID of Member#340 (I'm #3818). Noxid, of course, got a separate formula which made his Cat value thousands and thousands higher than anyone else's. Unfortunately, it spawned various posts and threads asking what it was and such, which Wild Desu pointed out in a thread. Pointless drama ensued, and Andwhy took out the Cat value in response.
Um...if I may shift into Serious Mode and be completely honest here...well, about the recent events in the Skype thread. I'm often completely terrified of talking with you because I'm never sure of what reaction it will illicit. It's completely random, and it's somewhat clear to me that you really do let real life events influence your posts, to at least a large extent. Would it be too hard for you to at least admit that? Because if it is...please say so.
