I understand what you meant

And yes, we do all know it's an April Fools thread. But when I saw Twistey's misunderstanding, I realized that, well, we (hopefully) get a lot of people coming through who aren't yet super familiar with how we work. I thought having that post might help to avoid scaring off newbies an potential newbies, or at least giving them the wrong idea about us as a community. It wasn't the best thought-out post and I think sarcasm is probably an appropriate response to it :P

  • ... no. I apologise.Huinesoron, Sat Apr 8 1:47pm
    What I meant was: as a community of readers who are good at reading the context of things, I feel that we don't need an explicit statement that the thread in which I say my agents go around... more

    • ... I also apologise for this post.Huinesoron, Sat Apr 8 2:07pm
      It was unnecessary. By way of explanation: coupled with Sergio's short response to my discussion of the Nameless Admin downthread, I unconsciously percieved this post as an indirect attack. I tried... more
      • Sorry for looking like I was angry with you.Sergio Turbo, Sat Apr 8 2:54pm
        It was mostly a combination of looking at that post when I didn't really have the time for a full answer, and also that... well, I didn't know what else to say? What I meant was that I had understood ... more

          You put that big notice up there because of me, didn't you? It's fine, it's fine. As I said earlier, I don't know too much about The Aviator, so I figured that that post had been entirely serious and ... more
          • Honey, you're fine. Cat-on-the-Keyboard , Mon Apr 10 2:15am
            Newbies usually mess up at least a little. This wasn't so bad -- nothing but a misunderstanding. A little embarrassing, maybe, but no one got hurt, and if you're still around a year from now we'll... more
            • Okay, thanks! ^//u//^twistedwindowpane (Twistey), Mon Apr 10 4:59pm
              Am I right in saying that "(nm)" stands for "no more" or "no message" and means there's nothing in the body? Is that what that is? -Twistey
              • It stands for 'no message'.Zingenmir, Mon Apr 10 5:40pm
                And if you don't realize that it fills in automatically and so you write in '(nm)' at the end of your subject line, you get '(nm) (nm)', from which occasional trend sprung NM&NMs! They're like M&Ms,... more

                  Just needed clarification is all. And bleepolate... there's a Bleeprin equivalent of everything, isn't there?! I don't particularly like Bleeprin; I prefer to just tough it out (or avoid the really... more
                  • Dunno where you heard that.Iximaz, Tue Apr 11 6:23pm
                    I mean, it even says on the Wiki that nobody has a Bleep addiction as far as we've seen. Also... just to clarify, but you know it's not you joining as an agent, right? Because some of your messages... more

                      I guess I was just thinking of the effects of a bad fanfic, then. Plus the fact that there's dispensers of Bleeprin everywhere and a Bleeprin version of everything? My idea is that it probably would... more

                        I'm pretty sure I have yet to see an outright Bleep addiction, though there certainly are overdose effects (mainly to do with memory issues, IIRC). Also, now I've started thinking about the Bleep... more

                          Oh gosh, more Bleep stuff... Everybody seems to have a thing for that thing... (After thinking about Ketcheep for a while, I suddenly thought it sounded like a... weird ship... I'll spare you.) Okay, ... more
                      • Or did I have the wrong term there?twistedwindowpane (Twistey), Sat Apr 15 10:32am
                        Is "PPCer" the same thing as "agent" or "Boarder"? I meant the latter in that previous post. -Twistey
