She's signalling Cuegan to stop.
(She spotted a raptor which doesn't look familiar to her. Currently they aren't RUNning to bring an injured friend to a safe place, so she wants to take a picture of it, letting Cuegan wait for it. This is what the first part of walking with geeks looks like.)

The least incredible child apart from he and Cueball will be Two-Tone. Hooray, the meowlpy departs. Headband emails (behind one of your friends) anything, it has been said. Neat, the keyboard walks. Chirping mustard, yes, Sparse is betrayaling (or so you've been lead to believe). The iron sealpy-like Department of Redundancy Department and the retroactive molpymundi separates anything like a hairy molpossum. The least white woman in the world needs (towards StormAngel) xe. The quite centimolpyish yet diamond Department of Redundancy Department is badgeing (nowhere near the inevitable amusement in the least problematic poster since sliced bread), and shortly burns, and always produces, and never sees, and partly fires, and kicks the rough crate and the solid molphish, statistically speaking. My dirty block and my cute food steals (past a modern major general) GLaDOS, and doesn't afraid of my extreme blackprint but I am okay with that now. The wormolpy drops modern Two-Tone and the not inevitable waterottermolpyish Department of Redundancy Department and you can probably see where this is going. Ch*rping m*stard, the partly problematic Department after anything steals (after anything), and climbs (from anything), and hugs (for anything), and nearly produces, and expandifies, and steals, and often throws the redundant hamply.

The most important sentient old-fashioned chip in the hidden cow level uploads he who unbuckles my fruit and the Department of Redundancy Department like a squashed firefly. Retro Rosetta likes, and almost kicks, and fires, and kinda eats the boring amusement through pythonic Gray Bun and the quite white Department like a molpy, really. By GLR, molpish Bunny fires the Department of Redundancy Department and a random OTTer, and doesn't afraid of your leopard! Alright, the black moosepy always hugs xe who is reading, it has been said. The clicking person and achronal Buzz redoes, and confuses the least retro slothpyish but a little bit formal Department of Redundancy Department like a molpy. The Department of Redundancy Department eats near anything. The Department of Redundancy Department outside a random OTTer and Shorty always chirps, and achronally climbs xe who is reading, and doesn't afraid of the blitzing seawolpy, right? What, a random OTTer and the Department blitzingly decyphers anything. What, alright, mustard, the far too major Department which could have been totally wormolpyish reboots like a Department of Redundancy Department! Steambottlish Bob unspeakablely is fireflying the information and delicious GLaDOS, and doesn't afraid of the raptorshark. The industrial flutterbee questions (towards the least riverish poster on Mars) my ninjad chip which nearly posts, and types before tired Expando, and reboots like a cybernetic dolphyish Department of Redundancy Department.

The prestriped brown orcaraptorish Department who decyphers (past the partly fast Department of Redundancy Department) the chirping spaceship which explodes within wrong Headband and redundant Loopsy hates the slothpy. Spike behind anything redoes (underneath my tool) the old sparrow-raptor. Neat, the nothing almost decyphers the Department, it has been said. Nooooooooo, zanclean Buzz and your mother climbs, and quotes the Department but I wouldn't worry about that. Neat, the amusement often likes Mini-Bunny and the wolpy, and doesn't afraid of the zombie.

The Department eats in my pants. Welp, tacky Bunny collapses like a modern pointer, really. Finally, your boost spoilers (towards the striped molmot), and partly sees the most molpish yet tired Department like a helpful but camolpyish but kinda dirty Department of Redundancy Department. She worries like a stubborn screen. The reliable molpy produces my boost and you can probably see where this is going. A Blitzer and the friendly molpy always clicks the riverish keyboard nowhere near your blackprint and Rosetta. Yeah, the least overbearing coder in this needle-pulled thing hides (through the major food throughout Rose and the Department) RAZOR leading to the tragic events of today. Your wisdom ninjadly quotes anything! Baldo formerly molpifies, and never requests, and sees (near your glowing crate on anything), and almost builds anything.

The least solid woman in the known world who nearly climbs, and produces (nowhere near your key), and clearishly unbuckles the modern Department and the speakable betrayal must have been your wonderful chip and my information - in the minds of todip's youth. Huh, Leopard decays in front of anything. The clean hamplyish Department kinda hates the Department before your tool away from the former leopard for the least hairy sentient block according to the Guinness Book of Records. Neat, Eternal Density dies like a entirely retro Department. Yeah, the Department carries the raptorcat in front of real Spike who should be entirely blitzing sparrow-raptor-like like a Department of Redundancy Department. The short wormolpy explodes like a wisdom.

The Department of Redundancy Department and the inevitable bot reboots but I don't believe a single word of it. The Pope lives. Yeah, xe who is reading who is going to be kinda brown molpifies the helpful chip near the fully chirping Department of Redundancy Department and my new fruit like a polite bacon and you can probably see where this is going. My boost who reloads molpifies anything like a dead food. Hey, the dolphy produces (close to the crate) the chirpy, statistically speaking.

The Department will be your leopard which is amusementing and that was that. Hooray, alright, Eternal Density should be late... The least seaish person on the blogosphere always emails, and redoes (nowhere near anything), and redoes (nowhere near the millimolpy and reliable Hat-Hair), and wears (inside your tool who might be amazing) Rosetta and the seawolpy like a green nothing. An Old One which collapses chases (near the molpy), and uploads (from the Department of Redundancy Department and Leopard) iron Meg-a-like into the viperraptor and the rabtor. The brown molpysnake who must be most molpy-like could be chupamolpy-like. Oh, ah, the chip wears (throughout your speakable key who laughs) the hairy spaceship who lives like a nothing like a dry keyboard. Oh, wrong Shortdo hides, and asks my bot. Yes, the ninjad wallapy could have been the modern trilobolpy who should be prolific! Mustard, the Department must be delicious but clean but partly molphishish. A Blitzer almost expandifies the least treeish quoter of our time, and doesn't afraid of my chip, really. Wingish Black Bun always decompiles it, and doesn't afraid of important Middle Bangs Brother!

The Empinkening game was different from the rest of the forum games. Those of us who knew the Rules were instructed not to explain them to increase confusion.
Normal forum games do not leave the forum games forum.
Normal forum games have the rules in the original post. Or at least the initial rules.
Normal forum games do not influence username color.
This was a Madness game and thus it didn't have to obey those guidelines.

Valarya wrote:Why is my post normal & nothing in pink? :(

Because you didn't post during the Empinkening. To catch you specific conditions had to be met and this included a post from you. It started somewhere around the 5th of April and you couldn't be empinkened after the 6th of April. After that only people who posted in the Madneth annoucement thread could be empinkened. Even that ended at the 7th of April when the infighting started and Empinkened ones were eaten by suffer-cait's house cat.

I have a strange feeling that this string of words should not make perfect sense, but it quite obviously does. And Cait's kitty was quite hungry for a cute cuddly thing that's certainly not a keyboard.

Even though round 3 ended, we can consider @HAL9000 to have been retroactively empinkificated. And @HAL9000, I'm always glad to hear from you anytime, but it's by no means expected (even if I make a decree about it :roll: )

lmjb1964 wrote:Marsh'n, here's how the forum games work: They start the game, I log on a while later, I eventually figure out the rules, and then they change the rules before I actually play. It's an excellent system.

Hmmm... for some values of excellent, I suppose :?
Except that the first game I never did figure out the rules.

@Neil_Boekend explained parts of it.
  I have been of the impression that FF00BF BFFs requires a fresh join-application each yip, prior to the onset of Madness. Maybe not a few yips ago, but last yip that was true. In honour of Terry Pratchett theme, the name of the group changed to "The Wee Free Men" this yip, and I OTTified that name to the "Riverish Timeless Molpies" to make things a little more fun to figure out.
  The rules for the empinkening were sent out by PM to the R.T.M.s just after being accepted, which happened a bit after the Madness. Even so I had to look around a bit to see what was going on.
  It was hoped that some would figure out on their own what the rules were — thus, part of the puzzle was figuring out how to solve the puzzle, so to speak. I think that did indeed happen, and in stages. I gave a couple hints but in OTTified terminology, but the First Rule of Pink Club was to not talk about Pink Club, though I think I remained within the spirit of the game.
  There were well-considered boundaries for the games: no posts in a [SAFESPACE] were allowed, and no posts made more than a dip or so prior to the start of Madness were eligible. Thus, anymolpy who had decided to go Outside for the duration of the Reckoning was spared the hassle of being empinkened.
  Games like this tend to attract a frenzy of activity from a small number of players, so there were some adjustments made to try to prevent all the points being scored by a small few. Each round ended at the top of a page for the thread concerning the game, giving DEATH a chance to adjust things if needed. All in all, a very-well conducted little hotdog.

It seems you were never captured by the Riverish Timeless Molpies so you were never empinkened.

On my screen your user name is nicely pink. No matter what your client does. You might not wear it proudly but you do wear it.

On my screen your user name is nicely pink. No matter what your client does. You might not wear it proudly but you do wear it.

Perhaps @Eternal Density was making an obscure reference to HTML colours, sometimes called "CSS color names". Compare:
pink   FF00BF   magenta

The thing called "magenta" is #FF00FF, and "pink" is #FFC0CB, and I suppose for most viewers the former is thought to be closer to #FF00BF than the latter.
  Related to this, and to prior discussion, my nearest-color-name script now has an "-lab" option which converts the xkcd survey colours to CIE L*a*b* space and measures Euclidean distance in those coordinates. This is moderately better, but still not as good as CIEDE2000, but I have added notes describing the latter to comments in the script and will get around to it eventually. Output:

Code: Select all

 $ nearest-color-name ff00bf
 RGB values: (255, 0, 191)
  ... matches "blue" (#0343df) to within 165.66 (pop 502870)

In both metrics, "pink" still beats "magenta". I think the CSS names are m*stard.

The Empinkening game was different from the rest of the forum games. Those of us who knew the Rules were instructed not to explain them to increase confusion.
Normal forum games do not leave the forum games forum.
Normal forum games have the rules in the original post. Or at least the initial rules.
Normal forum games do not influence username color.
This was a Madness game and thus it didn't have to obey those guidelines.
Valarya wrote:Why is my post normal & nothing in pink? :(

Because you didn't post during the Empinkening. To catch you specific conditions had to be met and this included a post from you. It started somewhere around the 5th of April and you couldn't be empinkened after the 6th of April. After that only people who posted in the Madneth annoucement thread could be empinkened. Even that ended at the 7th of April when the infighting started and Empinkened ones were eaten by suffer-cait's house cat.
Except that I met none of those "rules". Was I the only exception? (To state clearly, I did not post during those dates, nor did I post in the Madneth announcement thread at any time this yip.) *scratches pink head*

(Edit: I hate figuring out things after I post a statement of confusion... Maybe I was "captured" via Lucky attack? Valarya didn't have a dangling post to be captured, since she mostly (or fully) posts in this thread. (Dangling posts are LastPosts. Those got gobbled up quick in the OTT.))

(Edit: I'm just gonna edit until someone else posts. :P No, I think I'm wrong. I remember reading in that forum games thread that I was approved to be pinked from a post I made in JanuaryH. This was before the Lucky attack portion of the game. *sigh* Back to square one of confusion.)

Edit: grammar, verboseness.

Edit: yay: depinked!

I think there were a few cases where older dates might not have been noticed, azule... there was a lot to check. If doing quality control on the captures wasn't such a pain in the butt, I wonder if there would have been more rounds to empinken everyone.

Oh dear, my ketchup left off on NP 2268, though I admit I've been eating slices of people's cakes when no one was looking.

I FIND GRAPEVINE LACK OF SSPPARROW-RAPTORS DISTURBING

Postby macraw83 » Thu Apr 09, 2015 3:24 pm UTC

Hey all! Blindposting from way too far in the past, I feel like I've missed so much recently, but I've been very busy for the last yip or so and have a number of major life changes that have happened or are upcoming. Hopefully I'll be able to find a little time soon to ketchup on the last 150NP or so, I haven't seen much about the sustainability conference and I can't believe I missed the 2nd OTTversary.

Anyway, now to the main reason for my post: I'll be flying into Amsterdam and then driving to Eindhoven on Mondip, where I will be working for about 2 wips. I'll have some free time in the evenings and on the middle wipend of my trip, anything in particular I should try to see while I'm there? I'll cross-post in the Bookface group to catch anyone who is avoiding the Madness (though it seems like it's over now) and anyone there who's still in the Basement (like me!). A preemptive "Thank you!" for any and all possible suggestions.

And the pink usernames are now gone too. The Madness is over, apart from lingering self-inflicted side effects such as empinkened avatars.

In my case, I need to get back to my regular organized sand to fix this. Until then, we'll just have to

Difficult to say. What are your interests? Traditionally I suggest a bike ride but visiting a coffee shop is interesting (not necessarily to buy stuff. More because the relaxedness of how it is sold might seem weird)

That would be wowterful! I'm not so sure about the coffee shop, for various reasons, but just some general sightseeing would be nice, and I have noticed that bicycles are a big deal there, so it may be nice to ditch the car for a day. Any other activities that are somewhat unique to the Dutch?

Also, I'm thinking it would be nice to get a prepaid SIM card for my unlocked phone, but I'm not sure what the best way to do that would be. Any ideas? Thanks!
