Newpixbot is pope. This is interesting. Does newpixbot have any previously declared implicit decrees, or does mscha get to determine the decree for this page?

Here's an animation update on the panning.

Yong is the Chinese word for "courage" or "brave" as an adjective; "soldier" as a noun. It would seem newpixbot is instructing us to some brave or courageous act, to soldier for some cause. Fellow OTTers, our brave, robotic pope is rallying us to a cause! We need to take $enemy's territory and avenge $lostlovedones! For newpixbot!

This.... was not to be.
The thread grabbed me, and I began to feel guilty for taking and not contributing. The plan was long to continue my pilgrimage alone anyway... even as I discovered other blitzers. Finally... I simply had to post. I saw the legendary Blitzgirl online. Still I continue my Blitz. 78 newpix in. Newpage 388. Wish me luck.

Blitz well, send us word of your progress.

The real move will follow around Christmas (and probably even not then, since I'll almost directly head to the bush to do some field work); so far I am visiting a lab at a famous university that rhymes with m*stard.

What is the field work you'll be doing?

I'll be working on the mutualistic association between antmolpies2 and flutterbees (mainly while they're still redundakitterpillars9).

Hi pelrigg! Molpish to see you again! That's a wingish OTColourification!

Decided to crack down on my Hotdog strategies because I've been flattening out in my sand/castle build rates. Went to the wiki and did all the easy things I could find (got beach ball, sold/bought things to unlock a few boosts I hadn't gotten yet, provoked newpixbots to judgement dip level 13). Not sure what to do now, though, besides try for redundakitties and ninja stealth. Also not sure if I've gotten everything I can from judgement dip or if I need to keep sacrificing castles.

Did you get the "Machine Learning" badge? If so, you have everything from Judgement Dip. If not, wait for ... DORD to give whatever boosts you haven't gotten yet. Other than that, I don't think I can be of much help. I have no idea what the beach ball is. (For reference: I'm building KWW castles per ong and just bought blackprints but don't know what to do with it yet)

And to everyone, I'm still here enjoying everything. If you've done something OTTish and don't think you've received enough thanks/credit/accolades/worship for it yet, consider this a personal thank you for your wowtreeish creativity and hard work. Image

Spoiler:
Nothing redundant to put here besides that the reason I haven't been posting much is that I feel like I don't have much to add to the OTT (no pity please, I don't feel bad about it or anything). It's just that my primary talents aren't of the artistic types that you all seem to have in spades. Actually, the OTT has been a way for me to dabble in some of the more creative arts that I've never been comfortable with on the outside. Maybe I shouldn't be waiting for inspiration to OTTify another song or othercomic, but I never like the outcome if I try to force it.

Anyway, I'm not going to stop reading and enjoying everything and I'll post if I think there's something I can do to make the OTT even better than the awesomeful place it already is. So no basement for me, even though a damp dark place with lots of nooks and corners to hide in may sound like a good place for a slug.

Lovely Otty pelrigg!

Dracomax too! (But the link behind it takes me to a blank photobucket page. I've allowed the scripts that I don't recognize as data-scrapers and ad-servers, and it's still blank. What it it supposed to go to)?

@slinches - always good to hear from you. Don't worry if your creative efforts don't meet your expectations, we still want to see/hear them! Lots of times people self-censor themselves$ when they have really molpish stuff but don't realize how treeish it is. It would be sad to let that happen. :)

I'm not even sure that would be worth it. Sure, when the thread was down there was a flurry of activity over there, but most of the time there's not even all that much from regular OTTers, let alone those who've left... It's not a bad idea though, I just don't think a wiply thing would be worth it. Maybe an irregular thing, just if anything pops up over there that's worth sharing. :)

ETA: But funnily enough, this was just shared over there by Tatiana: An audio interview with everyone's favourite deity! Not sure what it's about yet or whether he talks about the OTC as I've only just started listening to it, but yeah.

We share an OTTercomic now and then (also posted over here) or maybe a RELATED picture, and Kieryn notifies us of his newslides, things like that. If I thought there would be molpish value to the OTT, I probably would have posted excerpts before now - but until the 503 crisis, there wasn't too much happening over there.

So I just read the comic, and I find this and an entire subculture based around it that seems quite complicated! This is what I love about the internet, the fact that things like this happen around great things like time. I hope to become a regular poster here, as this is incredibly interesting to me.

Have now listened to it all: It's actually really interesting and insightful! I've always thought of Randall as this kind of genius who's super knowledgeable about everything ever and whose intelligence vastly dwarfs mine, but hearing about how he does a lot of his really geeky comics straight after only having just learned about whatever geeky thing it's about, and how when he does his big infographics it's mainly more about helping himself understand rather than teaching others... it makes me think that maybe we're not so different after all. :P It's also really interesting to hear him talk about his buffer. I'm always amazed at how he posts comics that are almost always really clever, funny, and inspired every single Monday, Wednesday and Friday without fail. Most other webcomic artists take a day off every now and then so I always presumed he must have an enormous buffer or stash of unpublished othercomics. But he says he doesn't! I guess he is a bit of a genius then!

And yes, around 40:45 they discuss the OTC! Goes more in depth than the blag post actually. He talks about how he did Click and Drag, saw how popular it was, and then wanted to do something on that scale again only "exploring time instead of space". He also talks about how he did indeed put up the first frame before the whole thing was finished, thinking he'd drawn enough already to stay ahead of it, but underestimated how much more work some of the later frames would be and was struggling to keep up. So we can forgive him for mustard! He also adds "it's something I'd like to explore more" (after he's built back some energy from this one) :mrgreen: So lets continue to Wait For It! He also talks about how, with both the OTC and C&D, he deliberately tried to make it difficult to view - not being able to zoom or quickly scroll in C&D, and not being able to skip forward and back in Time, and having to Wait For It. Then he adds that he actually used the third party viewing platforms like Geekwagon himself to help in creating it, checking to help remember what was in previous frames etc. His final comment in the OTC section is: "As someone who is obsessively generating it, by the end I felt a real kinship with the people who were obsessively trying to decode it all." See, GLR loves us all! :mrgreen:

This otherskycircle must be a basement. I'm worried about losing more members. Facebook gobbled some up (but maybe they would have otherwise not posted either?) while others just left. Maybe those blitzers will arrive inthe present by the time you leave. ah screw it, :cry: , I'm gonna miss you.

lol.

I guess it's time to start stalking you watching your videos.

NO. I'm not going to leave. I've already proven it impossible. And I don't want to. I like this place too much. You, otters are of the very few people that don' respond to my actions by "What are you doing, Balthasar? Stop it already!

I'll have some extra work to do and not enough time to read and post as much as I'd like to. But I'm still here. At the end of the year things will come back to normal. Or that's what they said.

And ChronosDragon, look what i found on my bookshelf. I'm pretty sure it wasn't there yesterday.

I skimmed for the news that there's info on Time. Will read the rest of your post later. Currently listening, starting minute 41.

10 minutes later...

Edit: Holy shit. We have confirmation that we had a hand in Time. How fucking cool. Thanks, Tatiana for finding that. Come back, btw. :P

I really hated how the radio guys kept calling it "Med Flood"....Wrong!

Quick approval, that's molpish! I notice that we had a post deleted somewhere in the past eight newpages or so, too, since the popes have been goated.

Just guessing but I think it might have been the mysterious post I was refering too earlier since I am back to being in pope position on newpage 1622 after being pushed forward from goat by kitnoki. I never found the post but it was at least 100+ newpages in the past (and possibly hundreds more by my guessing). Either that or one coincidentally got deleted far enough back to return people to their original positions.

Edit: spelling.

Code: Select all

## 3.153
- Discovery Detector messages go to log
- Typo in Discovery Detector (yay not mine)
- I forgot to wrap the Sand Monument images in the new URL function I'd extracted when attempting to do preloading
- So now Sand Monument images will actually appear
- Another DD change by waveney
- Stats shows partial blackprints, also by waveney (wish I'd thought of that! Well I hope I would have, but it's a moot point question now :P)
- Forgot to change a number when I supposedly made Mysterious Representations activate at lower AC levels, making it go backwards
- I updated Google Chrome and now I can't look at the console and sources at the same time. (Just felt like complaining)
- Panther Rush checks that you have the required logicat levels when buying it
- Panther Rush asks the user if you really want to spend the logicat levels before using them
- Panther Rush reunlocks after usage if you have enough Logicat levels for its next (or current, if you declined to buy it) level
- That's because the confirmation actually happens after buying so it has to lock and unlock to ensure the number of boosts owned comes out right
- Assuming it does come out right (let me know if you see any wonky numbers: someone reported an issue with negative boosts owned a while back and though I haven't bene able to reproduce it, that doesn't mean it can't happen in some circumstances)
- Rambled in changelog. I'm surprised I managed to avoid doing that for so long. I tend to ramble. Especially when... nevermind

And to everyone, I'm still here enjoying everything. If you've done something OTTish and don't think you've received enough thanks/credit/accolades/worship for it yet, consider this a personal thank you for your wowtreeish creativity and hard work. Image

Spoiler:
Nothing redundant to put here besides that the reason I haven't been posting much is that I feel like I don't have much to add to the OTT (no pity please, I don't feel bad about it or anything). It's just that my primary talents aren't of the artistic types that you all seem to have in spades. Actually, the OTT has been a way for me to dabble in some of the more creative arts that I've never been comfortable with on the outside. Maybe I shouldn't be waiting for inspiration to OTTify another song or othercomic, but I never like the outcome if I try to force it.

Anyway, I'm not going to stop reading and enjoying everything and I'll post if I think there's something I can do to make the OTT even better than the awesomeful place it already is. So no basement for me, even though a damp dark place with lots of nooks and corners to hide in may sound like a good place for a slug.

Slinches! be careful...there are mindslugs running around out here, and we cdon't want someone to put a pumpkin on you mistakenly!

Yeah, I just forgot to strip the extra infor from the photobucket easy link. I'll fix it.

I have 2 more comics scripted, one partially drawn. I have the thing plotted out to what would be the end of the first or second episode of an old Who serial—the point where the real problem becomes clear, and everything is left at a cliffhanger.

As of now, no OTTers will become companions. take that as you will. The com[panion he came with is not a companion from the show. There may be a fez, if any incarnation of ChronosDragon ever finds his way into the comic's present for long enough to give him one.

And that is all I will say about that.

Welcome to, if not the freindliest place on the web, at least one of the most enthusiastically weird. Even at what most of us consider to be dead slow, it still moves about 1.5 times as fast as anything else on this forum, so please, post, be creative, and wait with us, for we have faith that the GLR shall create a new TIME, and we shall see the second coming of Cuegan.
