Despite the forum oddness cutting in to some of the time, we have decided to go ahead and call it. So, Madness over, we'll start undoing the stuff that's still in effect.

Frist!

This year I finally understand the HODOR filter. (That is to say, I thought it was simply "funny" in the past. But now I've watched GoT and it all makes sense.)

I've somehow managed to remain unaware of these until recently.

I find Mod Madness makes the election-year political threads make more sense.

It comes early this year!

I eagerly await the descent of the Madness upon us.

Maybe I'll finally get rid of these brain worms. Either that or they'll evolve...

Bran Worms become Cranium Larva with the Headasplode attack. It's kind of meh, effective mostly against psychic types.

This is the announcement, but ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Maddening cometh.

I wondered the same thing, then decided it must be a typo, instead of THE RECKONING arriving early.

Nah, I've just watched The Heart, She Holler recently. Begend the Endginning is the name of the first episode of the second season. Begend, Endginning, Comening, and similar words are frequently referenced.

Also, I really recommend that show. It's amazing.

Good plan, but it would be better to do so accidentally.

I didn't notice it before, either.

nope, no word filters there.

It must have been "Begends" all along :|

I just want to know how I get assistance from the moderation staff with taking the week off. Will I still receive my usual compensation?

I can unlock this thread for you and you can post in it. That's one way.

Begend: not to be confused with big end (surprisingly SFW).

ETA: Uh-oh, last time I posted in this thread, I went pink. I wonder what's going to happen to me this year...

Unlikely they'll empinken again this year, but avatar replacements might not be out of question (scrambling them might lead to interesting results ^^)...

You were probably caught between two of us. And thus you became one of us.

Last year some of us voluntarily did avatar swaps around the time of the Madness.

In Forum Games, possibly the most confusing thing they could do is number replacements. Imagine a filter that replaces all 9s with 1s... :shock:

Not only would that confuse any counting games, it would also confuse any references to me. :P

The word filters only insert whole words, so that's unfortunately impossible :(

I think a sig swap would be interesting, although perhaps not very confusing. Well, at least not without an avatar swap. :P

That's probably not a shame.
