Well, it's over and it isn't Friday yet. They kept their word.

I'd love it if the undiscovered filters stayed around until they were found.

Well, I hope the mods had good fun this time around. I didn't say anything this year because last year I really seemed to have gotten into their nerves, getting warned, and all.

I'll just go and say that it was fun to see the LANCE CONSTABLES, REPORT FOR DUTY [R4 CLOSED] and that it seemed like a fun interaction mods-members (or, Azrael-members, if he did it all by himself) and hope to some more stuff like that on the year instead of doing it yearly.

Also, it's not over until the fat lady sings people become unempinkened!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO :evil: :evil: :evil: :cry:

The mods would never do a thing like that. Removing our enlightened, empinkened status? That'd be too evil for even our mods.

That's how this works. Well, with one new exception.

The way to make everyone's color change and such is to first make it their default group. I think you can leave it at your leisure once Azrael gets around to taking care of that.

I'm still a little clear on what exactly the criteria for empinkening is. I gather it's a good (or at least not bad) thing and that some people actively sought it out, and it's not happening to just anyone and everyone, but it happened to me without me seeking it out and I don't really get what that means. But then I've not been paying much attention; real life is murdering me and I mostly like to sit out Madnesses anyway.

See this thread. Spread it. Required pink-colored users on both sides of your post (usually). Accepted only posts during Madness in select areas. Targeted other pink-colored users at the end.

Tried to Defense Cat. Edited it in seconds too late. (Expected nothing, admittedly. Ignored avatar immunity.)

What Deva said. But the whole idea with that game was to get everyone that posted on this thread empinkened, so people went and "captured" them by the rules of the thread, though by round 2 capturing only needed you posting after the captured poster.

So, you have a target, you stalk them, you post after them, you make a link to the event in the thread, and they become empinkened.

And the people that got the most people empinked won the game.

Curiously enough, suffer-cait was SO GOOD at the game that he was called the game's winner before it was over :mrgreen:

I check the Gender pronouns thread, and this one too but if you haven't posted your preferences there, then oh well :wink:

(Edit: Perhaps some already know this, but perhaps "Cait" is a given name in Celtic cultures? (baby names: cait) and if so, then definitely of the likely-more-female end of the distribution, if one were to guess out of context.)

As I was saying, yay for mod madness and see you next year!

(And now, an offtopic message - pretend this isn't on this thread)
Spoiler:
Yeah, I ask for it like a parrot: give us a box, similar to the Location box, but for Pronouns. Unless it's like, impossible to code into the board, which might be possible given the technological requirements and implications of having such a box. Mafiascum does have a Pronouns box, so you never see misunderstanding or "I'm actually a she" stuff, nor do they have to have multiple gender pronouns threads that people have to post in and have to check just to avoid those problems. But they're using an exclusive phpBB version that is moddable unlike ours, or that's my guess because I can't fathom why would we still not have such a thing.

And that's why I'm quiet most of the time, when I speak I'm don't sound nice at all :mrgreen:

There's the Commies group, but you'd have to be invited by the admins and it's not FFOOBF. Maybe, just maybe, Azrael will allow us to keep the pinkmagenta.

Even though you're right (the CIE76 distance is ~26 compared to ~33), purple pizzazz is not a real colour.

"Cait" seems to be a shortening of "Caitlin" (or one of several alternative spellings), and "Caitlin" is an Irish name given to women.
