Oh, yeah. I thought maybe I could maybe it would still work after the post by newpixbot, but now that BG has posted it's too late. I'm just too slow.

Thanks for thinking of me though!

It is said that in the distant aforewhen an OTTer (or a Delurker, or Basementee, or an Outsider, or perhaps even a Bot, depending on which version of the myth is being told) had committed some form of heresy, or other silliness, and was punished by being made to endlessly OTTify a huge complidated PNG image (like maybe one of those "Where's Wally" paintings). Every time the artwork was finished, the file's contents would revert to their original form (much like the comment editor on wikia) and the task would begin anew. After many many yips of this, social and cultural norms had evolved so far that pantlessness was no longer permissible (except for cartoon characters, stick figures, and bots under the age of 143 yips), and the OTTer (or Delurker or...) was compelled to wear slacks whilst OTTifying. From that point on, anyOTTer who then failed either to OTTify or to acknowledge the OTTifications of another at least once per fortnight or so, or found to be not wearing a suitable leg-garment whilst OTTifying, was said to have been "slacking off".

Hmm, you're probably right. But if I did much thwapping with it perhaps the flagwand would lose its floor-summoning abilities, and those are important.

I completely agree, and I think it's a great thing that it promotes that.
I also have no problem with talking to new people and/or going to new places in general.
I just won't go to FaiD, mainly because of bad experiences I have made with similar subfor[a/ums] in other places. Some day I probably will but not now.
Also that was in no way meant as criticism about the game, if anything I was criticising myself. :)

Yes, I noticed that too. I think it's brilliant. While cultures tend to be fractally nested, it takes an excuse, like a cross-forum event, to cross the imaginary lines.
  Perhaps inter-fora games could be a more frequent event. This one seems to have been planned out fairly well, with boundaries on where to play and who is eligible (e.g. recent posters), etc. The Shades is a lot of fun, but when I'm not holed up in the Unseen University I tend to focus my creative efforts in one area of the city at any time.

That mrONGbdex chapter just might have been Timed to coincide with The Reckoning... maybe. :wink:

!!FUN!! with Furious Doodling: Polyglot Writing

Postby mrob27 » Wed Apr 08, 2015 5:50 am UTC

Ooh, that tickles (me pink...)

One of my favourite Reckoning-related activities is to write something that both makes sense and is funny, in both the original English and in the cheesegratered version. I had an excellent opportunity yesterdip:
Sprocket wrote:It's the tea time of the gods.

I immediately siezed the opportunity and replied:
I wrote:Ah yes, of course. That novel by the well-known and sadly-deceased-before-his-time author of DiscWorld, Long Dark Tea-Time of the Ankh-Morpork Assassins' Guild.

At the time, the cheesegraters produced:
with the aid of Madness, I simultaneously wrote:Ah yes, of courthe. That novel by the well-known and sadly-deceased-before-his-time author of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Long Dark Tea-Time of the Ankh-Morpork Assassins' Guild.

Only one thing changed, but the implied author also changes. My description of the author fits both Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. But the novel title is a parody of a Douglas Adams novel and the DiscWorld character Jonathan Teatime (I wrote "Tea-time" with a hyphen to avoid another cheesegrater that would have obfuscated the joke, but it works because the Adams novel has "Tea-Time".) But it will still make sense and be funny after the Madness is over.
  I call this "polyglot writing" because it is writing something that makes sense in two languages. One can do this with two normal languages, like French and English.
  My post was appreciated, but not quite in the way I intended. Soon after I posted, the "+++ MELON MELON MELON+++" HODOR-filter kicked in. I noticed it myself, and added the screen-shot to my collection at OTT:2281:22. But @Earthling on Mars was also on that thread at the time, and took two screenshots which you can find here.
  I think to do polyglot writing that works even under HODOR filters, I'd need to use a palimpsest technique like that I am using to ONG the bOTTeriada stories. But the plaintext needs to also make sense, to be in the spirit of Madness and polyglot writing.

I didn't experience much of the Sandcastle Eon live in the Present. Only the tail end of The Fading. But it was treeish.

If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.
