SWEET ZOMBIE JESUS EVERYTHING IS BLINKING

Seriously… I’m looking at the “submit a logo” page right now, and pretty much all of the text from the bottom of the forum description onwards is blinking. On the main pages there’s stuff blinking seemingly at random, it’s a crazy blinkfest.

Which is cool ‘n all, but it makes clicking on the blinking links a little more difficult than normal since they won’t register as clicked if they were in the middle of a blink when you click.

Seriously though, that’s the problem that plague blink and marquee tags. Any links placed inside those tags are, in Wikipedia words, “notoriously difficult to click, and can easily frustrate users.” And yet people still continue to do it…

With the materials you’re inspired by, I believe they will turn out to be poisonous fruits, though.

Heh, the credits page was broken as well. It is now fixed.

That was a fun week. I gave everything I had into that concept, and some of them scored nicely. Also I was very glad to see people sent their ideas in. They really bring back fond memories of the earlier days of the web. Damn, I feel old again. Log in to see images!

One thing I regret though, is my failure to submit my forum logo on time to make a difference. Although I have experience with Photoshop, I have no image editing program on this computer of mine, other than Paint and ACD See. Log in to see images!. I had to learn it, and then made the most stereotypically bad Web 1.0 design I can think of. Well, I did that, and submitted it two hours before the deadline, gathering 3 upvotes. I wonder what would happen if I was more prepared. I went back to make an nausea-induced animated version and post it on discussion, again on the last day, with twelve hours left (when you had limited time, scope creep didn’t help either) but it also failed to gather enough votes.

Anyway, because I don’t want it to go to waste, and because I’m so damn proud of my work Log in to see images!, I’m posting it here:

Log in to see images!

Animated version!

This is the static version. For the animated one, click on the link. I should warn you though, if you are prone to epilepsy, don’t click it, or at least don’t look at it for too long. Heck, I myself felt a little bit sick staring at it. The reason I don’t post it here is because I don’t want the mods to think I’m trolling and ban me. It’s not a really flashing image or anything, but a representation of bad web design, consisting of <blink> tag, <marquee> tag, and animated gifs that was so common during the Web 1.0 era. It’s not intentionally harmful, but bad design tends to have that side effect.


P.S. Why does it gets difficulty level of 6 anyway? Come on! We’re talking about angry old veterans here!

P.P.S. On the other hand, I might have answered my own question with that…

Looking through the itembuildr stuff for today…

Most of the pictures don’t work so well on the small size, that’s always annoying since it’s probably seen more often than the full size copy.

Someone doesn’t know their leaves; “Ivy Leaves: The first person who wore this sexy leaf was thrown out of paradice for eating an apple”. But bumuming we’re both thinking of Adam and Eve, that would have been fig leaves.

“Well-Placed Stickers” sounds very familiar… hell, even the item stats are pretty similar to “Strategically Placed Band-aids”.

The rest is OK I guess, I’m done nitpicking for now.

I thought this thread is about Forumbuildr. Still, anyone notice that recent Itembuildr tattoos have VERY SIMILAR STATS? What the heck is that? Only different stats are Max Tears and tattoo prices. Why do we need more than one tattoo with +6 Attack and Defense anyway?

On the Forumbuildr front, we have two ideas that were ignored and voted down for a long time coming up, with less than fifteen total votes. What does that speak of their qualities? Where are all the good ideas when we need them? Submitters of those ideas probably give up after a few months of close defeat, leaving us with those… things.

I downvoted both of the “winning candidates.” But if I have to choose, I wish Alliance of the Apathetic win. Because the Hemp one is just… Log in to see images!

If you really wanted to be picky, you’d have noted that it wasn’t an apple that was eaten, but a pomegranate. Log in to see images!

I though it was an unspecified fruit, but that “apple” was also a generic word for fruit when it was translated…

Pomegranate would be harking back to the Greek myth about Demeter’s daughter, Persephone, spending some time in the underworld and getting tricked into eating some pomegranate seeds. Having eaten in the underworld she then had to spent x months of the year there (x = number of seeds she ate, and varies between different tellings of the story).

Don’t know if anyone has noticed but there seems to be some common belief that apathy is laziness. Well, it isn’t. I was glad to see at least one typical post submission point this out. Log in to see images!

I’m also disappointed that Major League Beer-Pong is winning over The Ouija Board.

This one?

According to Wikipedia:
In positive psychology, apathy is described as a response to an easy challenge for which the subject has matched skills.

Log in to see images!

Well, it’s mine. I started by searching what Apathy is about, and take this picture and add it as my first typical post. At this point it looks like this one is not going to win, despite the fact I posted it earlier last week. So I guess it’s okay to make my claim here.

Oh, and you might be happy to know that Major League Beerpong was blasted down, replaced with League of Amateur Action Heroes (Who Wants To Be A Superhero parody? How can you parody what’s already a parody?) It is good for me too, because I don’t know what Beerpong is. And no Wikipedia research is going to inspire me enough to submit quality items on this topic. Log in to see images! Kittysan edited this message on 08/30/2009 11:56AM

Hmm, perhaps Bashy was a bit hasty with the thread description and title of his last forum. Is it Alliance of the Apathetic, or bumociation of the Apathetic? Perhaps the description can still be edited by Crotch Zombie at this point?

I know. Major League BeerPong went from -2 to 5 while the other ones like fine upstanding member of society went from like 7 to 2.

No, really, I’m already going gaga over all the fun I’m going to have (not to mention the flood of legitimate chocolate, and the epeens) with delving into the depths of my ridiculously specific fetish imagination, and submitting all the little things that get me off, for people to lul at as if they were just some random internet mockery.

I should be an NPC.

Funny how that wish got granted.

Fran said somewhere that at that point, the highest-voted build was at 3, so she saw a chance to win.

Maybe — and only maybe, I’m not decided on this but am throwing it out for discussion — we shouldn’t be able to create new forums after Thursday or Friday.

there’s a lot of things that need to change with forum submissions. This is really only the tip of the iceberg.
