I love D&D more than I could ever love a human child.
Can I just say, I have no idea how to work out a Grade Point Average. It's not done in UK schools, at least not when I was there and my daughter is not there yet, but I see it a lot in US movies.Anyone care to explain or work it out for the grades I gave above?

I think that should work pretty well. It may be also of interest, especially since WotC will see the results, to note the number of each. There is a difference between a lot of As and a lot of Fs (showing a difference of opinions) and everyone giving it a C (showing consistency). I see a fair amount of consistency for adventure tools, some swing in the magazines, and variance with CB and compendium.

Generally, an A is worth 4 points, a B is worth 3, a C is worth 2, and a D is worth 1. A failing grade (an F) is worth 0 points. You just average them out from there. The + and - grades are variable - is a B+ a 3.3? But that's the basic approach. It's a little more complex if the different classes have different numbers of credits - then you need to weight each grade by the number of credits for the course in question.Using approximate numbers, you gave C (2), B+ (3.3), B (3), B- (2.6), E (0), and C+ (2.3), so the "GPA" is 2.2, which is a C+ or so. Unless I have failed math forever, which sometimes happens to me.
Just renewed my subscription, and I'd like to know why the online version of monster builder is less useful than the old, downloadable version! Good thing I still have the old, installable version, because I have absolutely zero use for the online version.You're letting me down, Wizards of the Coast. WAY down. As in, "I have almost zero respect for you" down. I like the things you print, but why is your D&D Insider content years late, and $70 dollars short?
Always a GM, never a player (not really but sometimes feels like it).
Community: F - These forums are the most hostile, and vile community I visit. I wish I could stop, but I find these forums have the best interface to actually find what I'm looking for. The real difficulty is not getting irritated with the community before I find what I want.
Heh agreed on the community, nightwalker. There are plenty of individuals who are pleasant enough, but there's definitely a critical mass of hostility and arrogance on here that makes it awfully unpleasant a lot of the time.
Celebrate our differences.
I'll have to respectfully disagree with that, Jharii. Like Nightwalker and LlamasNotsheep, I see lots of arrogance and unpleasantness on these forums as well. I don't think they were taking potshots, though, but would actually like to see the tone improve. If we don't point out the unpleasantness, it won't change and things won't improve. The other options are to ignore it and continue to put up with it, or walk away and allow it to degenerate further, as when pleasant people leave, only the trolls will remain.
