Facebook group?

Postby sje46 » Thu Mar 12, 2009 12:46 pm UTC

If there is one, ignore this, but neither "xkcd forums" or "xkcd fora" brings up anything. And since this is by far the largest internet community I'm part of, and those other dinky ones I joined have their own facebook group, why not this one? Also, YO FAT MAMA just got one.

So I'm beating you guys to it. Here.

What's the point of this? You can join if you want to be facebook friends with your forumite friends! Like, duhhhh :)

So, umm, yeah. I'll add to it later, after I take my test today. If this exists (which I see no evidence of) then please provide me with a link?

There is already an 'xkcd' group a few people from here are part of, but I don't think there is one for the fora.

I vote for a collage! We need:

* red spiders
* playpen balls
* Black Hat Guy
* boomerangs!
* ummm.... any other suggestions?

And I'm completely against smile dog. We'd end up scaring off people and attracting people who'd spam the group with shock pictures/sites.

I'd like less negative space, but that might be a little hard to do.

I left a lot of negative space and placed a lot of random things together because I figured more of it would be filled with more stuff (man with white hat, cuttlefish, wikipedia references, that kind of stuff). I just didn't know what more you guys wanted. A faceless president behind a desk?

A random river flowing through. Or a wall map of the internet.

Anything is possible.
