So are we assimilating #1433? Is bird-rain the strange, chirping phenomenon we see in some of those evening and twilight frames? They don't get wet because it's raining birds not water. hah.
yappo "I was going for "generic OTTer"." - Ah. Now I wonder what everyone's "generic OTTer" image is. Mine definitely does not have a top hat. It's hard for me to generalize us. While I have a hat, it still feels like I don't. I think a lot of others seem that way, too. Woah, SBN doesn't have a hat! Well, MSW, I believe. I'd like the wolpy to have a meowlpy as a hat. Because, they're friendly wolps.

I'm an older man having some fun(Clarify: older than 23...not older/elder )
Aluisio "Facebug" - That feels like the natural, OTTified term for "BookFace". I'm using that from now on (if it makes sense).
Aluisio "Criminal Minds. Season 9, episode 21. Pig Mask. Man that was creepy." - Thanks. I hope to see that at some point.
mrob "oblique and lateral" - Sorry about your confusing injury. I think you said it was diaphragm-near (maybe really near). Glad to have you back!

I've gone to these pages, where I believe I got it started to load, then went offline. I might be wrong, but I thought it hadn't cached anything that was hidden. Maybe it's done on Firefox (I'm rocking 25) and not your browser (mobile). I'll have to double check another time. Anyways, I like the navigation. If I were to do it on my website, I'd attempt to give it a navigation bar specific to finding comics by number. Well, Sciscitor's database has something like this and it's paginated. Maybe that one's better for you (if maybe less complete (or maybe other times moreso)).
Thanks. I haven't felt like figuring out where that went (and there it was in config).
ED "Ni ni ni etc has done a lot in preventing "we must all agree" from becoming a problem, methinks." - As long as there is a standard (which you can just create) then it's okay that you don't agree with another standard. If, somehow, you were to disagree with everything and not have a standard... maybe that would be bad. But, probably impossible, because of ni ni ni standard inc copyright trademark

Maybe it's not seaish enough, but my version of automome has the OTTish words divided up in that way. Maybe you also need words like "hate" and "love".
ST - If your speech is on a recognizable subject (one which you've done in a post) would you also be recognizable. Maybe if others are also anonymous there might be a game of "match the speech to the OTTer" going on. ^_^

While I think that may be an issue with some, it's probably first an issue of avatar disassociation (a term I just made up...FOR SCIENCE!), the phenomenon I posted about earlier. If people know who I am online, such as with some posts outside of this thread, I'm okay with that. If they find something of mine that seems opposite to what they think of me, that's the way it is. If they find me.... hah. It's like, you can probably know almost everything about me...but if you actually then also know me in real life... I think everyone here probably knows something about social anxiety. Yeah.
Thought -- We really need some standard for upvoting. I think, maybe, it's "appreciated" (lmjb just said "enjoyed"). For example: I saw ucim's "aligned" image, and liked it, but sometimes I'm not quite sure what to say. I'd like a "no comment" but "upvote" sort of dealy to deal out.
N_B "some IR leds in a hat (preferably your avatar's hat of course) will mostly prevent pictures with your face as IR blinds most cameras." - Hah. Maybe some might want that, but I don't care much if someone takes my picture, sees me, remembers my face, etc. If those IR LEDs could blind me instead... Oh, wait, I still want to see [later].
Sustainabilizer - I tried to make it clear that it wouldn't be possible for me to go. This is unrelated to the social issues. Sorry for not being clear.
ggh "Perhaps I can co-author a presentation with someone who is thinking about going?" - First, hi again! Second, yes. I think, if someone's able/willing to go but maybe doesn't have something to give a speech on...have my speech, or someone else's. You could give a speech by another since some of us can't go.
Ninja'd. Proxy. Smart people. How about random assignment of speeches? hah. Even if someone's doing their own speech.
Double ninja'd. *walks away, sullenly*
I had a dream that some guy next to us, while we were out somewhere, muttered "sheeple", while he got his jacket on and I think was getting on a bike (motorcycle). I know, only tangentially RELATED
, but do you think the sheeple of thread #610 care? *shakes head* (note: I've never been there. It's probably nice.)
Aluisio "And there shall be weepends and gnashing of teeth." - FTFY
Other thought -- If we have longpix and shortpix, can we also have longposts and shortposts? I'm not sure how spoilering affects a posting being long or not.
Sciscitor "However, if there is sufficient consens in the OTT to compose a message for her, I am willing to send it." - I say, just do it on one of those lovey-dovey holidays (Cueganmas) and wish her well and maybe hope for a reply.sheeple
You never know. Maybe it really happened.
