So, who else thinks that this may lead to people doing random stuff that they think will get them exp? In an unrelated topic, 50 inconsequential points to everyone who follows me and I think I need a ladder, two gallons of turpentine, and a duck.

I will say the same thing here that I said when giant bomb added this a few weeks ago. Meh. 
 
I personally have zero interest in this new "feature" and to be honest am very disappointed that so much time was taken away from fixing the million or so annoying bugs that these sites are plagued with to instead go into making this fluff feature. But of course I'm in the minority on this topic, as always seems to be the case, so I will just shut up since nothing I can say or do will change the whiskey higher ups priorities.

I'm ruined, quests here AND on Giant Bomb?  I'm supposed to be a good little grad student.

I really hope that doing these quests will bring some form of reward.

I'd love to see a quest like:
 
HKSS Recruitment!   Recruit 10 people to join the HKSS.    And that means you! XD

@damswedon: What is this half-assery? While some of the items you listed have similar applications, I'd be willing to bet half a quest doesn't net me anything but some pity. Let's say, next time I need to save a cat from a tree, but I want it to end up paralyzed, I'll give you a call.

@crusader8463:
You aren't the only one who thinks this way. While this may be a quick, fun past time, I still would rather fix all the little bugs instead of adding this feature. But I think implementing this will help with traffic stats as seen here: http://www.whiskeymedia.com/brands.shtml 
 
They're probably adding stuff like this to make more people stay longer per session of each Whiskey site. This will show how traffic flow is good on these sites and advertisers may see this as a good and thus will want to advertise on these sites. So I can see adding this will help them in the long run if people constantly want to continue leveling up and questing.

This is really cool. I'm stumped on a few quests right now, but I'll get em eventually.

I'm not a fan of this thing over on Giant Bomb, but all the kinks seemed to have been worked out there.  The main forums are rarely flooded with quest related threads and most of the near-empty blogs created just for XP are hidden from view.  I work the quests here the same way I do there which means if I unlock one while in the course of doing something else, then that's fine, but I won't seek to complete any.  I don't chase achievement points, trophies or Whiskey Media accolades.  Others are free to do so as they like however and I think it's good for the company's business.  But, this type of thing just isn't for me.
