I have 8 years on my account

What to do?
I’m trying to get access for the first time and a sign pops up:

I mean, I’ve been playing on/off since Gmod 9 back in 2005. I made Addons and SWEPs at some point in 2009, long before “workshop” was integrated into Gmod. Heck, I was on the original Facepunch Forums.

So I get the annoyance on “workshop score”, but also, 8 years is peanuts.

Edit: That being said, we deserve nothing

It’s very cool but the queue system doesn’t aim to give everyone “what they deserved”, it’s only a tool for facepunch developers to have free beta-testers.

Yes, the queue isn’t fair, only approximate.

The key nomination system was, if you were interested in S&box and were worthy, you would receive a key after being nominated.

Really thinking it through and logically, there is no reason to complain about how things went, just admit you were late for the key nominations, that was a great system for people who actually waited for S&box instead of getting interested only when it became more well known.
