RE: Forum Grist Masterpost: The Hunt is On!
Hey, Glub here on the topic of Lead grist (again).

It's most definitely mod given. I sat at around 100 rep for a good amount of time (maybe even exceeding it) before I was given the Lead grist. Led and I got it at the same time, since the first thing I did was poke my head on over to Led's profile to see if it was because I hit 100 or if it was a lower rep count that got me the grist.

I have shale now. Is it because of my art memo?

RE: Forum Grist Masterpost: The Hunt is On!
alright so yesterday I hit 82 rep and today I have lead grist. So here are my guesses so far:

1) either lead grist is awarded automatically at 82 rep BUT it was not implemented at first. That grist was added on forums much later (perhaps in this or previous year)That would explain why Glub did not have lead grist, despite having exceeded 82 rep long ago. That would explain why both Glub and lostRefrain got lead grist basically simultaneously

2) or this is mod-given grist and then it's a question whether it's awarded at 82 rep or 81 (as a reversal of cobalt)

I'm leaning towards guess 1 because lemme show you a screenshot of my grist cache


Notice how I have chalk, then ambrosia, then neon, then shale. It might be just a coincidence but I have recieved those types of grist in that exact order. And all those grist types are awarded by mods, i.e., manually.

However, diamond follows quartz (both are being awarded automatically for certain amount of posts) and lead follows cobalt. We know that cobalt is being awarded automatically for a given amount of rep. So if lead is being awarded automatically for a certain amount of rep (82, if this guess is true) then it makes sense for it to be put right next to cobalt (Glub's cache also displays lead right after cobalt). Same with LostRefrain - lead right after cobalt.

I was offline for over a year and I don't have rust. That theory may be flawed.

Was your status marked as "away"? I don't have rust either so I don't know how it works but I'm wondering if it could be that
