It has Endginned. (Mod Madness 2016)

Postby SecondTalon » Wed Mar 09, 2016 7:16 pm UTC

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 find Mod Madness makes the election-year political threads make more sense.
We're in the traffic-chopper over the XKCD boards where there's been a thread-derailment. A Liquified Godwin spill has evacuated threads in a fourty-post radius of the accident, Lolcats and TVTropes have broken free of their containers. It is believed that the Point has perished.

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

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.

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:

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