I don't believe you're the ONLY ONE who wants this. I just think there are other options available to you. Don't tell me I can't buy a large drink, because you don't want to go on a diet.

Ok, but my second suggestion about a voluntary timer solved that. You could drink all you want and I could sip.

Most people, in this regard, will fully and stubbornly cling to the levels and tell you it's your own problem.  Don't feel the slightest bit guilty about watching those levels like a hawk and making [master] beside each your personal achievement goal.  It's what everyone else is doing right now.

Thanks, this makes me feel better.

Hell no, I type 'skills' every single time I miss an attack.
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I have this irrational but very real paranoia that if I type skills too fast after a fight/fail that it resets the counter and burns me. I still do it but I dwell on it a lot.

We were somewhere near the Shield Wall, on the edge of the Red Desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

I have a similar paranoia that crafting without emoting reduces the odds of success.

If this was true we'd never emote again.  Master here I come!

Personally I love following the growth of my skill tree, especially on days like April 1st when my skills read things like
Combat Skill - two handed               (like ur mom)   
Seems like this should fall under Manipulation Skills!  HEYOOOOO!

In the interest of helping everyone, what if there was a flag you could set on character creation, that set brief skills for the entire life of that character? In this manner we're not reducing anyones options, and it's not so easy to circumvent at a moments notice.
