Now, now. Panache. It was around 999,951 when I accidently cheated. And there’s been a well-received cheat since then. Now you want to go up? Is your conscience bothering you? Mine doesn’t.

As creator of the game, I must remain the arbiter of the so called "cheating" and not partake in it.

This thread is as totally ridiculous as that other one. What the hell people? Don't you have lives? What the fuck is the point? Maliciously wasting pixels when you know there are people who don't even have two pixels to rub together?

A fucking travesty is what this is. Grow up!

We're at 998,015. I'll ask the OP, are we aiming to reach 1 or 0? I guess we have a minute to think about it.
