What's up with the site?
 
I think we're being attacked by an alternate universe. A universe where apes evolved from men, and could never quite make television work, and now they're taking it out on us.

<s>FINALLY someone notices</s> Oh, is there something unusual going on?

'Cause I don't see anything.

Kssssh.

Wowbagger 11-03-2015 04:36 AM

Oh, thank goodness, someone was finally willing to comment about it openly.

At first, I thought the everything-is-comic-sans thing was just one of Zeke's bad jokes, to be explained presently. But as it dragged on (and on), it eventually reached the point where I knew Zeke didn't know about it, but it had gone on so long that bringing it up was too awkward.

But now that FG has broken the silence, let this be an official bug report, Zeke: everything is in Comic Sans. Please fix it. Screenshot from a few minutes ago, if it helps you find the root problem:

The root problem is <i>you</i>, Wowbagger. You are clearly attempting to punk me.

Wowbagger 11-03-2015 05:04 AM

You're right. I actually have no idea what you guys are talking about. What's wrong with the site? Site? What site? Who am I? Why am I here?

Zeke 11-03-2015 05:44 AM

(By the way, it's easy to tell the screenshot is fake by the timestamps -- looks like Wowbagger made this at least a year ago and just got around to using it. But I didn't notice that when I replied, and I'm rather proud of myself for having the confidence to call him out anyway. He will not <a href="https://youtu.be/DwHwgUnaKak?t=135">destroy this and confuse us</a> on my watch.)

What's wrong with the site? Nothing, of course. It hasn't changed at all.

You might describe its condition as... <i>static</i>.

NAHTMMM 11-03-2015 11:09 AM

See? The data of the site itself is fine. Somehow the transmission of it is being disrupted by the projection of some other universe into ours. A universe with apes. And non-functional television sets.

Wowbagger 11-04-2015 04:37 AM

But, seriously, though, we're all talking about the fact that FG has been here for months and still doesn't have a funny user profile subtitle, right?

make the fucking static stop and restore my ability to shout in all caps goddammit zeke

Zeke 11-06-2015 08:31 PM

On the one hand, I have a sneaking suspicion the static is almost over. How many days has it been again?

On the other hand, the degree of your reaction alarms me. Even wishing for all-caps? Did static run over your dog?

Well, I posted on . . . oh. Is this a Ring thing?

Zeke 11-07-2015 02:50 AM

Ksssssssh.

Pffft, how should we know? Didn't exactly show up in the RSS feed, did it?

(NOTE: I actually have no idea whether it showed up in the RSS feed. My local network blocks the entire LiveJournal domain as pornography.)

Not a dog person. No, I was just irritated because I was trying to type something in all-caps and every time I hit "preview post," the site automatically made it sentence case. I get enraged when MS programs "correct" what I've written, and I've never seen a BBS interface do it.

And dude, your static background made me nauseated for a good half-hour after I got off my computer, so yeah, annoyed! :)

See, if you want to prank someone again, do it properly. All modern browsers have the ability to override the font for readability.

...or you can do like I do: make a Q account, get a friendly admin to give that account admin powers, and put the entire forum on trial for crimes against existence.

Oh, so is this why they kicked you out of Bravo Fleet?

(But, seriously, putting RSB on trial for crimes against existence is too kind a fate.)

No, more like I let myself out. They gotta remember to keep the cages locked.

I would suggest changing your avatar to Chicken Little, sir.
