After Eternal Density has reported in his progress, I've got an update to my Database too.
  1. No, no search function yet.
  2. Entered all new ottifications up to NP1390, so only 60 NP behind. :shock: This means there are now 567 OTTifications in the Database.
  3. Added the mouse over functionality for OTTerComics exactly as it worked with OTColorizations.
  4. Scraped all NP up to and including 1446. So if you want to help with adding new OTTifications you can do so up to this NP. (Great way to spend the ninja periods productively.)

It wasn't a pun! I swear!
It was a homonym! So there!


Awesomeful, Sciscitor, the Database is really wowterfully seaish now!
One riverish bit of mustard: the rollover on http://178.79.159.24/Time/ottification/661/ is redirecting to the wrong OtherComic for some reason. Or wait - maybe the OTTercomic is wrong?

It is a neat game, I've seen it played before under another name. But how to play it in the thread? I guess you could use spoiler tags- hide everything under spoilers. The person doing the writing (or drawing), mustn't look at the spoilers before the drawing or description s/he is thinking about.

To keep things simple, lets only have one chain. As each user logs on, s/he adds to the chain (by posting a picture if the previous user posted a description, or vice versa) Once that user has posted s/he can look at the whole chain (the chain will be as long as the number of users). To keep things treeish, pictures must be in the style of the OTC.

It is best to start with a picture. Unfortunately my drawing skills are worse than Cueball's, so does someone else want to volunteer?

Wow, so this game is all over the interwebs! Thanks to all of you who linked to various websites playing The Game. So, I guess it can be done online! And I think it was ucim who mentioned an xkcd thread for that very game. And who did I see posting there but patzer and Vytron! They use spoilers, but it might be easy for people to see the earlier sentences while ketchupping, since we're all very well-trained to click on spoilers. :D Hmmm...

CD, I read your description of how an online version might work. So, are you thinking that different people might see and respond to the same image or sentence, resulting in different chains? Interesting.

I found a site called Drawception where you can, once you get to a certain level, create a game and invite friends. But I don't like the interface; for one thing, it really limits the amount of words you can write. And I created an account on the site Angelastic mentions, and found her there, but I'm confused. It shows that she has created two incomplete games, but when I click on her Games link, it says she isn't part of any games. And I don't know if you can have a private game.

I've always played the game starting with words--more specifically, a sentence--rather than a picture. Some of the sites do it the other way round, but they're obviously wrong. :twisted:

A way to stop all of the puns,
to cut the hair and slit the tongues.

But punning is harmless as is a fly,
Although with bad puns, we just want to cry.

I did not spot a pun in the relevant post.
Let us not offend her, for she is a good host.

Our punning will end up dead anyway,
So out with the saws until a new day.

Much progress has been made, I see
By Scisitor and E. Density.
They both are doing treeish stuff
And BlitzGirl's molpies now are buff. :)

Perhaps I'll later find a way
To play the game I wish to play.
But though I'd love to stick around,
It's really time to molpy down.

Radio Transcript 27

Molpy News Network
Transcript of the Live MNN Radio Broadcast
of the Consecration of the new Sacred Grounds
of the Church of the Order of the Holy Contradiction
Spoiler:
Standard MNN opening: "Ni ni ni ni chupacabra ping pong ball"
Female radio host wrote:Welcome to the Molpy News Network's exclusive coverage of the Pope's consecration of the new Sacred Grounds of the Holy Contradiction.
Male radio host wrote:Now that's a mouthful! But don't worry, we'll break it into small parts so that it's easy for our listeners to understand.
Female radio host wrote:So what is so special about this ground that they are making it Sacred Land?
Male radio host wrote:I'm glad you asked that! Remember it was only a few hours ago that the Pope discovered the reason for all the flooding that has been such a problem these last several mips, and brought about a Great Miracle that literally stemmed the tide.
Female radio host wrote:Literally? Surely you mean figuratively, don't you? That word is getting so abused it's literally being run into the ground.
Male radio host wrote:No, I literally mean literally. That was the miracle - that gigantic waterfall was flooding the all land, and now because of the Pope's heroic actions, it isn't. He made it stop. He actually stemmed the tide. Literally.
Female radio host wrote:Are you sure? It wasn't really a tide he stopped. Literally, it's not caused by the moon. In fact, even figuratively it's not caused by the moon. It's a waterfall.
Male radio host wrote:Oh, you're always so picky! This is a news station - we don't get points for accuracy.
Female radio host wrote: And don't you think you're taking the hero worship a bit too far? Even the Pope said that the miracle was not his, but from the Creator himself, and it took the entire clerecy to come to this point.
Male radio host wrote:People relate to heroes. We need heroes. One way or another, the Pope is a hero.
Female radio host wrote:That's making me hungry! Let's have a word from our sponsor.
Advertisement wrote:Did you ever long for a sandwich, but not have enough yen? Or have a yen for a sandwich that was long enough? Now you don't have to wait for it - just grab a Foot-Long MolpyTail Hero! Three great flavors:
* tail of a frog, if you're feeling under the weather,
* tail of the cock if you just want to get high,
* and tail of two cities for the really ravenous!
MolpyTail Heroes - Chock full of molpy, not a lot of bread! Doesn't cost a lot of bread either! Even if you can't be a hero, you can always eat one!
Male radio host wrote:So heretical, and so good!
Female radio host wrote:Let's go to our roving correspondent at the Sanctification. Take it!
the roving correspondent wrote:Here we are, literally at the actual sanctification itself. The Pope is dressed in long, flowing, golden robes embroidered with the symbols and icons of the Order of the Holy Contradiction. The miter he's wearing was made by BlitzGirl herself, and gives a stately and dignified finishing touch to his raiment. The First Cleric's robe is a bright yellow; it has a youthful look, matching the first cleric himself.
Female radio host wrote:What is it about these vestments that makes it youthful? Do you think the first cleric is being rebellious, like most young people today?
Male radio host wrote:I think you are being unfair to young people. Some of them are older than others.
the roving correspondent wrote:Well, mainly I think it's the lack of embroidery that distinguishes it from the Pope's vestments. It's almost like embroidery is a merit badge of sorts.
Female radio host wrote:What about the Second Scribe? Is she part of the service?
Male radio host wrote:I've heard so much about the Pope and the second scribe - rumors are rampant but so far we haven't been able to confirm anything. I'd be really surprised if she were not there.
the roving correspondent wrote:She is indeed here, wearing a brilliant red robe, with her long dark hair quite striking against it. Together, the fashion statement that the three of them make says that here, now, this moment, this place, is Sacred Beyond All Sanctity. And now, with the other six clerics in the ceremony, the Pope is taking the Holy Thailimus and sprinkling it all around. Let's listen in.
The Pope wrote:...tui sanctus nel terra et omnius, sanctus nel terra des acua sanctimus, cui terra salvadorae qui...
Male radio host wrote:That is truly an ancient language! It sounds a little like Latin, doesn't it? But it's clearly not.
Female radio host wrote:Does anybody know what it means any more? Or are these just Holy Words.
Male radio host wrote:Oh, I'm sure the Pope knows.
Female radio host wrote:What do you think he's saying?
Male radio host wrote:Well, those are the Great and Sacred Prayers of Sancification. This is a momentous occasion; those prayers have not been uttered for at least six hundred yips.
Female radio host wrote:Yet the Pope knows them by heart.
Male radio host wrote:That's one of the things it takes to be a Pope, I guess. Yanno, I've never really gotten much into that religion thing. I just don't understand why so many people follow so much mumbo jumbo. It makes no sense at... Ouch! Where did that come from? Ouch! Yahgh!
Female radio host wrote:It looks like... M&Ms, but..
Male radio host wrote:Gah! Where are they all coming from! Oof! Oy!
Female radio host wrote:Back to our roving correspondent.
The Pope wrote:... sanctii dix, sanctii dix, sanctii omnii totus verum dix. Gratias atui des omnis clerecium, per omnia gratia, nunc, et per milleniae, et in sempiternum...
the roving correspondent wrote:The Pope has just sancified this day above all days, and is now giving thanks on behalf of the entire clerecy. That seems to be a theme - the Pope never takes credit himself, but instead gives thanks for and to the entire community. He is now taking the Holy Thailimus back from the Second Scribe and placing it back in the Reticulum. Get your mind out of the gutter; it has four syllables, not two! Oh, this is unusual! He's leading BlitzGirl and another man and woman up onto the dais... and there are a couple of dozen others following - wait - those are the raft people! They are singing a hymn I have never heard before!
Female radio host wrote:Can you make out the words?
the roving correspondent wrote:No, it's in a completely different language. This is the first time anything other than the Ancient Tongue has been used in any of the Great Ceremonies of the Church. This is a truly momentous occasion!
The raft people wrote:Keipu glie hy grymth! Glie na smopu vrathki! Bradva, bradvak, bradvaii smopu hierban ta...
Male radio host wrote:We'll be back after this brief word from our sponsor.

Female radio host wrote:We are back! That was an absolutely awesome hymn, and the tune is just haunting! Even though I don't know the language, I can feel in my bones what it's saying. I get chills just thinking about it!
Male radio host wrote:I think we've just witnessed a major theological event here, like the fulfillment of a prophesy nobody had foretold.
Female radio host wrote:That's an excellent way of putting it. And now it looks like they are coming to the most holy and sacred part of the ceremony. We're not going to want to miss this! Is our correspondent still there?
the roving correspondent wrote:Yes, I'm still here, and I'm trying to get closer. The other clerics have moved off to the side, leaving the Pope alone with the Kanjib. This is the moment. This is the Great Consecration - the most Holy Moment of the entire Ceremony. It will be at this point that these grounds will become Sacred Grounds.
Female radio host wrote:I wonder what the Pope is thinking at a moment like this.
the roving correspondent wrote:Well, there is one way to find out.
[noises]
the roving correspondent wrote:Excuse me, Mister Pope. I was wondering if you had any comments for our listeners as to what is happening here.
[Several seconds pass with no response.]
the First Cleric wrote:Would you like me to take care of that question, your Pontiffness?
The Pope wrote:Yes, if you would, I'd appreciate that.
[Thud. Silence.]
Male radio host wrote:Hmmm. It seems they're having some technical difficulties down there.
Female radio host wrote:Sounds more like enlightenment to me.
Male radio host wrote:Those are the risks we take to bring you the news as its happening.
Female radio host wrote:Wait... wait a minute, I think we have our roving correspondent back.
the roving correspondent wrote:Well, I'm further back than I had hoped to be, but we are coming to the close of the ceremony. The Pope has lit all the candles.
The Pope wrote:...consaecrium terram in Saecula Saeculorem; per omniam tempus, et per omniam des Tempii.
the entire congregation wrote:Amen!
Male radio host wrote:Well, there you have it.
Female radio host wrote:Indeed. "We consecrate this ground for a hundred years, and for a hundred centuries; for all time, and for all of Time."
Male radio host wrote:This is the Molpy News Network signing off at the dawn of a new age for the Church of the Holy Contradiction.
Female radio host wrote:May all your contradictions be happy ones!

Good... good noon, I guess.
Just woke up, and this is what I thought before comaing:
  1. To hell with HTML. I must go sharpen my nonexistent Qt skills.
  2. I should write a story scene for the new character CD is working on. The basics were already created. ZFT!

In a couple hours I should get out and find out where I'll have to present myself for military conscription, and how much time I'll take to go there.

Hi everyone! I'm back again! I tried my best to return with rhymes, as per pagepope, but I just can't do it right now. (don't pelt me!)
anyway, I gave up on ketchuping. its not as exciting without the otc, and I missed the present dearly. I haven't been current since before the long night! I needed to be back into the flow of things. Rest assured I've used the wiki to see as many of the cool new ottifications (ottifacts?) as possible, and all the OTcoloreds, and games, and all that jazz. I think forum games are all right, but we should keep it related. And how should this tephone pictionary go? should these posts be specially labeled so you know to only open the spoiler of the latest one?
anyway, the present is as wowterfull as always, and I look forward to waiting for it, instead of running after it.

@ED For the "Stats" page: have a sand/mNP line for each type of boost. ie:
--Bucket boost sand/mNP: 0.4 {Total of Bigger buckets and Huge buckets and any new}
--Cuegan boost sand/mNP: 0.5 {Total of Helping Hands and Cooperation and any new}
--Molpy boost sand/mNP: 0.1 {Total of Molpies and any new}

Suggested names for additional molpy boosts: "Baby Bird", "Mama Bird", "Pricklymolpy", "Flying Raptormolpy", "Snake"* (these could show up whenever and could have the same '+1%' increase for several of them)
*Unless you have some diabolical plan for "Snake!"
-------------

Thanks to BlitzGirl for your yappo album cover and playlist. (Now I can be a lazy molpy and not have to search for those. Although I still want to find the couple of other {OTTher?} songs that were dropboxed and save those.)
Thanks to svenman who's doing wiki-work while blitzing. (Wiki-blitzing? Biltz-wiki-ing?)
And thanks to Sciscitor for your databasing. (I'm not sure how to wiki yet, so I'm really not sure how I'd add a couple of OTTcolors and OTTmanips I know of to your group. Mostly because of the "hover mouse to show the original" thing you have going there.)

And that would also mean there was no one (registered) cruising any of the Comic Threads at that moment. So it must have been a real quiet time on the entire fora.

Semi-related. Has anyone else noticed this line on the front page of the fora?

@ED - some suggestions:
A LaPetite Boost - Some boost to Cuegans I think
A Badge for Forty Cuegans (The whole tribe)
A range of different helpful Molpies to join in (Prickly, Beesnakes, Raptors, Lucky, Rabbit, Squirpy...)
After some point bring in Beanies to help
Boosts to Cuegans - a steambottle, grapes, a thwap stick...

Mhm... I am not sure what you mean... the formatting happens automatically, you just fill out as many fields of the form you get when clicking on "Add Ottification" in the upper right corner and then hit submit.

Oh, you have a Form to fill out. Wow, I guess that would make things a lot easier than the wiki. (I have looked at the basics of wiki-ing, and it doesn't look that rough. I'll have register though, since I want to add images.) But a Form. That's tree-ish. I'll have to hunt down the ones I'm thinking of and get them in. (I'm also not used to tooting my own horn and feel embarrassed adding my stuff to all the other wonders you have there. And, yes, I see I'm already included. Thanks.)

Right, first things first - After listening to my 1000 posts song a few times I've noticed the "S"s in the vocal part are very harsh and piercing, so I've made the de-esser stronger to cut off those piercing high frequencies more. Should be more bearable now. Old link still works, get yerself the new version! Ketchup coming soon.

Hi, ergman!

For the game--if you want to play, look only at my picture and not the earlier links. Though, like an idiot I clicked on the first link without waiting to see if it had already continued. I think it worked ok, though.

I thought it would take too long to draw something and scan it in, so I decided to use Word drawing tools. In retrospect, just drawing it would have been easier. In all honesty, though, the picture wouldn't have turned out any better. :)

also, you otters might be able to help me with this. I'm having trouble googling for it. A version of python that has a white background instead of that black, dos-y one, and has those little 'file', 'edit', 'help' tabs at the top? and you run your scripts to it?

Are you referring to IDLE? It's included with python, and ought to be an option for opening any .py file.

Alternatively, you could go for pyScripter, which is a lightweight python IDE with some nice features. Or, if you're really serious, there's a python plug-in for visual studio.

Erm, I think that would be IPython's QTConsole. Highly recomendable, though I personally prefer the notebook version, but that's just personal preferences. You can find both here. Ah ... and another thing: The colourscheme can be modified to whatever you like. If you are on a unix like system (linux or os x), you may be interested in the plain commandline version of IPython too, but it is less usefull with windows.

Mhm, on second thought, maybe you mean a python ide... If this is the case IDLE would be the most simple and common one I guess.
