Thanks Alpha

deadonthestreetdeadonthestreet Registered User regular
Some of us enjoyed the game, at least. I wasn't able to really do much with the scroll because of other obligations. I did however have a good time getting killed as soom as I could, and watching other people complain about the forums. It must have been a lot of work to do all that. And I, for one, appreciate it, greatly.

Here's to a bigger, better, badder next year.

    Aye, I appreciate the effort there Alpha, and I know I did complain about it. I liked the idea, I just thought it could have been executed better. I didn't mind the killing thing, nor the colour scheme, it was just the colour of the death font was too difficult to read. Perhaps it could have changed to blood red or something?

    Anyway, it's over now. Things can continue as normal again ^_^

    Needs more Social Devastation.

    The ninja thing was cool until about 3/4 of the forum was dead... then it lost meaning.

    I think that reaction would have been a LOT better if Alpha hadn't had those unexpected outside obligations (a.k.a. why AlphaBot took over a day with Part 1). If the timing had been quicker, it would've been received better.

    Either way, I liked it, especially the fade-to-grey stuff. It was really funny opening the Chat Thread and having only mo... I mean, "ninjas" have readable posts.

    :P

    I was enjoying it until 90% of the forum was dead and became unreadable. It was good fun until the mods ruined it by going overboard with the killing.

    I apreciate the effort, and hope it's better managed next year.

    Yeah. Some of the mods were incredibly irresponsible, which isn't surprising.

    I liked the Ninja thing too. I was trying to hack the naming convention all night last night before it was found. I look forward to whatever you come up with next time.

    Um, that doesn't make sense in this context. Ninjas aren't responsible. For anything.

    I would say that this is the... oh, second best April Fool's event in the past couple of years. :^:

    I assume that sigs will be back once alpha moves everything over to the postgresql db.

    ...a doctrine which may, I fear, appear wildly paradoxical and subversive. The doctrine in question is this: that it is undesirable to believe a proposition when there is no ground whatever for supposing it true. I must, of course, admit that if such an opinion became common it would completely transform our social life and our political system; since both are at present faultless, this must weigh against it. - Bertrand Russell

    What? He's right. Alpha will get to it, when he has the time. This isn't his job. Nobody expects him to punch in at 8:00 and stay until 5:00 coding.

    I don't eat pie. I'm sure that given your status as a fat, useless canker on the shrivelled bell end of life, you are more than familiar with the various intricacies of pie eating, so feel free to educate me. I'd love to be able to properly envision you sitting on your couch weeping uncontrollably as you shovel huge mouthfuls of pie into your gaping maw.

    And this whole ninja thing was no fun for the twits who just sat in the forums bitching about it. Those of us who were actually trying to solve the puzzle(s) had a goddamn blast. Once we had found the artifact, we briefly considered just letting you all stew in your misery for another day or two before handing it over. :P

    I did have fun, except that it seemed too drawn out and most of the posts hurt my eyes. The whole puzzle seemed to be, "Oh, here's something exciting...oh, I was wrong, we just have to wait for a long time."

    I'm terribly sorry to have offended you. If you have an issue with my modding, please go through the proper channels by writing your grievance down clearly, PMing it to administrators (Bone Daddy or Alpha) , and in due course they will let me know and I will put my balls in your mouth
