Oops - sorry about that. I was watching balthahistorian's video on drawing BFTF and youtube had a thumbnail of this video in the suggested viewing choices, so I clicked. :) Someone was time-travelling on his bicycle before the beginning of Time.
While we're here, that EEE on the gate around 3:30... why is that so familiar?

Also, I keep forgetting to mention how much I'm enjoying your latest installment, mrob - you have some lovely turns of phrase. :)

Well, for now I've only edited the past few weeks' worth of colorUNGs by hand. But the next colorUNG posted by oldpixbot should indeed be full-sized and hosted at my site.

I've written a little script to mirror the OTColored pix from the wiki to my server. Runs once per week for now; I may run it by hand after Wikia notifies me of updates to the page, but no promises. (The mirroring is pretty inefficient, since the wiki images have no Last-Modified header and thus don't return status 304 Not Modified when not modified.)

If others want to use these colorpix, feel free to.
Metadata is available in JSON and YAML format. Note that there is at most one colorpix per frame; if more than one is listed in the wiki, I selected one by hand (or if I haven't, the last one is used).

A WILD BALTHACYCLE APPEARED!

Postby mrob27 » Tue May 19, 2015 6:01 am UTC

I join others in thanking @mscha for putting the wingish OTColoured images on xes website for us to enjoy in their full-size splendour! Image

@Angelastic, you don't need to dig up the old version of Haiku Detector, because I do already have it (dated 2013 April 26th), and I checked, it also requires 10.7. But it's okay really, I have my own haiku thingie.
  Both of my systems (10.4 "Tiger" and 10.6 "Snow Leopard") have identical Speech (but no "Dictation") settings in System Preferences. There are 5 female, 4 male, and about 12 "novelty" voices to choose from (but no languages or accents). On the 10.6 system I had "Victoria" selected, and on the 10.4 system I had "Fred" selected. Just for fun I did the test again on all of the voices on both systems, and they all say "forty-two". And yes, definitely Z3, nudge-nudge, wink-wink.

Thank you, you are helping to advance my master plan :twisted: to wit:

Why bother, when Google/YouTube has so helpfully captioned all of it for you, in Горчица Russian, which I can then request be m*starded even further translated on-the-fly into English!
  Therefore, as duly appointed by no-one, and in partial satisfaction of the decree?, I bring you:

Takie Czasy
— Screenplay by @balthasar_s
(as dubiously interpreted by Googlebots)


00:00 Scene 1: A field in winter. Trees in the distance.

{Balthasar gets on the bike and rides OOV right}

(The remainder of the screenplay is Spoiler:ed for seaishness, and also for extreme silliness… and I didn't bother to transcribe the rest of the "Russian" because my Cyrillic is rusty.)
Spoiler:
00:45 Scene 2: an intersection.
{Balthasar rides into view from right, turns left to continue riding towards camera}

Cut to:
01:28 Scene 4a: We are now looking in the direction towards which Balthasar is travelling. This shot will be used several times throughout the rest of the film. The road ends in a gate; beyond the gate there is no road, streetlights or houses. (This is the time-portal; the far side of the gate is in the Past, before this area was developed.)
{Balthasar leans the bike against gate, then sits atop the gate.}

{We are seeing the same action as at the end of Scene 4a, but from this POV. past-Balthasar has the binoculars and is looking around. He walks backwards OOV right.}

  UAH

05:13 Scene 7: A hand-held shot: we are seeing Balthasar's own POV as he:
{Balthasar approaches the gate, jumps over it back into the present, and gets on the bicycle. (This is noticably similar to the action at the beginning of Scene 4b, i.e. "Balthasar" has become "past-Balthasar".)}

05:18 Scene 8: looking sideways across the road (the gate is OOV to the left).
{Balthasar is walking the bicycle and engages the kickstand. He gets out a map and looks at it briefly.}

Dissolve to:
11:22 Scene 17: A still taken in summer. The shot is similar to Scenes 4a/4b/etc. but further from the gate and lower to the ground. Close to us, entirely covering our view of the gate is a similar bike, but this one is painted orange and has no basket or tire-pump.

Thanks :oops: but I must point out these stories are largely OTTifications of Michael Kandel's excellent translation of the excellently written Cyberiada by Stanisław Lem. Many of Kandel's phrases, and almost all of the plot structure, survive unchanged. You may wish to browse one or two stories near the beginning of the book (hint: the ISBN number is 0156027593, and certain bookseller websites let you preview the first several pages) and compare them to my stories thus far:


 — mrob27 Image

? How does this satisfy the decree, you might ask? I am posting a thing (the fake-translated screenplay) that is almost another thing (a properly translated screenplay) and in that film @balthasar_s is clearly wearing a cool hat:
  It's the Beanie hat he got at OTTercon, despite the film having been released well before OTTercon. That's because Balthasar is the time traveler.

(Edit: There are three bikes, or four if you notice the tire-pump is sometimes missing.)

I've just discovered something really epsilon in the speech synthesis, but I'm still investigating which invisible character is causing it.

Hugbear ? Looks like it's time for another Molpy Manual entry

Hugbear
(inspired by the D20 Bugbear)

Size/Type: Medium Humanoid (Molpinoid)
Hit Dice: 3d8+3 (16 hp)
Initiative: +1
Speed: 30 ft. (6 squares)
Armor Class: 14 (+1 Dex, +3 natural), touch 11, flat-footed 13
Base Attack/Grapple: +2/+8
Attack: Hug +5 melee (1d8+2)
Full Attack: Hug +5 melee (1d8+2)
Space/Reach: 5 ft./5 ft.
Special Attacks:
Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft., scent, adorable
Saves: Fort +2, Ref +4, Will +1
Abilities: Str 15, Dex 12, Con 13, Int 10, Wis 10, Cha 9
Skills: Climb +3, Hide +4, Listen +4, Move Silently +6, Spot +4
Feats: Alertness, Unarmed Strike

Level Adjustment: +1

Hugbears speak Common.


Combat

Hugbears prefer to ambush targets whenever possible. When hunting, they normally send scouts ahead of the main group that, if they spy huggable people, return to report and bring up reinforcements.

Hugbear attacks are coordinated, and their tactics are sound if not brilliant.


Skills

Hugbears have a +4 racial bonus on Move Silently and grapple checks.

Thank you, I was pretty sure I was missing a lot. I'll watch the film more carefully and edit my post. (Wait for it).

ggh wrote:Analyze, analyzey people!

Here's what I found so far (your fonts will vary, don't e:e:e about it too much):

Code: Select all

    ⊡THE browser☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰
    Twúj Plan Po... ×┃ CT-143 Wło
    ━━━━━━━━━━┹-----------
            odj.   15:07

    -----------------------------
            odj.   19.18
    15.06.14             2:53  1

The words are presumably Polish (except "THE browser"). I think Twúj Plan is wrong but it's the best I can do to recognise the letters. Maybe odj. is an abbreviation of some conjugation of the verb odejmowania "adopt", or odjąć "remove"; and przyj. might represent przyjęcia "subtract". In Poland the date format is year:month:day, so these dates are in the future (2015 June the 14th). Just in case, I looked for OTT posts on the 15th June 2014, but found nothing matching the times (either in UTC or in CET). The "3:08" is the amount of Time from 15:07 to 18:15, i.e. it's a duration or a measurement of how far something has travelled through Time.

Wikification report: Split of OTTercomics page


Upon adding yet another entry to the OTTercomics One True Wiki page todip, I encountered a weird sort of mustard where no content was displayed on the page anymore, as if I had deleted it all. However, the byte count in the history indicated no such thing and checking with the edit function, all the wiki source text was still there; on using the preview function or going through the version history, sometimes the content would display and sometimes it wouldn't. The HTML source text contained a comment with a warning message which was not exactly informative but made me suspect that the content of the wiki page had simply become too seaish for Wikia's parser to convert it reliably into a HTML page (more details in a comment I added on the page todip).

For this reason, I have moved most of the content to new subpages: one each for the OTTercomics based on the regular othercomics #1-499, #500-999 and #1000-1499. The fairly riverish remainder (OTTercomics based on othercomic #1500 and up, as well as on other sources including What-Ifs) I have left on the OTTercomics main page.

I had seen that during my sojourn in the basement, some debate about formatting had been going on which seems to have fizzled out without coming to a real conclusion; previously when adding new content to the page during the last few months, I had ignored those issues for the time being. But with the split that I decided to implement anyway, I believe that a return to the more traditional formatting without any collapsible sections is viable and therefore I did away with these. I hope that the result is molpish for anymolpy concerned.
Apart from Forum Games, mostly active on the One True Thread.
If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.

Addams thanks all of us who helped. Her life is much better now.

GOT PRICKLINESS?

Postby mrob27 » Tue May 19, 2015 5:09 pm UTC

Hi @svenman!
  You have done so much steakish work on the wiki, thank you!
  When attempting to perform edits, I had a slightly different problem: If editing the same page a 2nd time it acted like my previous edit never happened. To work around this, I have to copy all the original text and save it on my own computer as a plain text file (I use the "source editor" mode on Wikia), then perform my edits in the external editor, then copy-paste the whole thing into Wikia. I think if I were willing to Wait a while for the servers to become aware of edit #1, I could do edit #2 without having it "forget" the previous changes.
  Regarding the OTTercomics page, I happen to like what you have done, but I don't want to be a bully about this. That is part of the reason the debate fizzled: I like to let others have the last word, and I tend to try to avoid repeating what I said because what's the point?
  I tested a few browsers and posted back at OTT:2128:2, but basically, my problem with the old auto-collapsing page was that it took a v-e-r-y long time to load and sucked up huge amounts of bandwidth. It was loading all of the images! That meant I could not use the page at all, unless I turn off image loading in my browser. I suggested getting rid of the "auto-collapsing" sections because it reduces that problem: my browser (and hopefully other well-designed ones) only loads images "on an as-needed basis" when you scroll down to the part of the page containing them. I also think that the perceived problem that led to the auto-collapsing thing is solved perfectly well by using the "table of contents" at the top, where you can click on something to jump to a section far down on the page.

(Edit: maybe not "most" browsers)

I actually speak fairly decent Russian (in fact my Russian is probably better than my English), so I know quite well that this is not (entirely) what it comes out to; and I really want to tell what it actually is (to the best of my - quite meager - current translating ability anyway)...

It still makes an awful lot of very little sense (in fact, it makes even less sense than my current signature, and that's saying something), but at least it more closely reflects what's actually there (the Russian text anyway - I suspect that's not what is really going on).
Might try to translate the rest of it later... minor exam tomorrow (and probably other kinds of exams in a few weeks).


Incidentally, I had another exam today, which led to a very mathematically funny result...

Our grading system is, in general, very simple: the top grade is 10, then it goes down by integers until 4 is the lowest passing grade; however, intermediate grades in calculations can, of course, be lower, and the "problems" grade (which I will be talking about) is an intermediate figure (it's averaged with the exam grade, and I think with something else as well).
We had two problem sheets this module (~half-semester), for a total of 60 problems. I solved 20. The scale is linear, and goes down to 0.
That means I got a 3, right?
Except it turns out that only 3/4 of the problems are needed for a full 10 grade. (And yes, if someone solves more, they get more than 10 - in the intermediate calculations anyway.)
Now, 3/4 of 60 is 45, 20/45 is 4/9, and 4/9 of 10 is 4.44 and change. So that means I got a 4, right?
Oh, almost forgot, we round all the grades up. So that would be a 5 then?
Not exactly.
You see, the numbers of solved problems are counted for the two problem sheets separately. Then the resulting grades are rounded up, then averaged, and then rounded up again (of course the average of two integers is an integer half the time, in which case it stays).
For my specific case, the figures came out such that the ultimate result was a 6. Yes, seriously. I didn't believe my math the first time I figured that out either.
I'll add that while the sheets did not have an equal number of problems, the larger one had less than twice as many as the smaller one, and that I solved more problems on the former than on the latter. Within these constraints, I'm not even sure if there's another possibility other than the one I happened to stumble into (I might mention my actual figures later).


Footnotes:
b though it might just as well be "board", as in "administration"; either is grammatically correct - in fact, either would make more sense than typical of this text - and having no idea who Shishkov is I couldn't really guess even if I assumed it was supposed to make sense
o the musical instruments, it seems, but it doesn't matter for the spelling in either Russian or English
There are two films that I particularly like.
One of them is a science-fiction dramatic comedy involving a boy who accidentally travelled in time. Extremely popular when it originally came out in 1985, it retains a major cult following to this day.
The other one, of course, is Back to the Future.

TREEISH! I JUST GAVE A LOOPIST REDUNDABIKES.

Postby mrob27 » Wed May 20, 2015 2:16 am UTC

I updated the Takie Czasy screenplay. I found 3 or 4 different bikes, depending on whether one notices that the tire-pump is sometimes missing. Most importantly though is that the bike in Scene 4g is clearly an off-road or "mountain" bike, with completely different tires, frame, etc. from the bikes in most of the film. Perhaps it is a redundabike, or perhaps some other temporal shenanigans are going on.

Thank you, @january1may for your better translation! I wasn't sure if you were still around, but I was thinking you would enjoy looking at this. (Of course the Russian itself, coming from a YouTube robot, was pretty much complete nonsense. The English I typed was just whatever the auto-translator does, which is the epitome of mustard, which was the point of my post.)

  Hey,
  Time travel!
  The best entertainment under the sun!
  Great fun!
  But sometimes, an unpleasant necessity.
  Especially, if you have, like I do,
  a mission to do in the past
  that can be done only in the past
  becsude (because) today it's not legal anymore.
  I created a team of scientist and sponsors.
  And we created a wonderful time travel theory.
  We made simulations, models until finally
  we built our own time machine.
  And you know what?
  It didn't work!
  But that's OK,
  There is another method and I'm going to test it now.
  Let's go!


{Balthasar gets on the bike and rides OOV right}

00:45 Scene 2: an intersection.
{Balthasar rides into view from right, turns left to continue riding towards camera}
{The TITLES appear over this shot of the intersection}

Titles:

  screenplay / directed by / editing

  kamera

  Przemysław Chmielowski

{Shortly before reaching the camera, Balthasar stops and dismounts.}

Cut to:
01:28 Scene 4a: We are now looking in the direction towards which Balthasar is travelling. This shot will be used several times throughout the rest of the film. The road ends in a gate; beyond the gate there is no road, streetlights or houses. (This is the time-portal; the far side of the gate is in the Past, before this area was developed.)
{Balthasar leans the bike against gate, then sits atop the gate.}

  Ok, we're on the place.
  This barrier here is actually a time border.
  On this side are our times, ond (and) on this one is the past.
  This can be easily identified:
  Here is the road. And in the past there is no road yet.
  Do you see any road there?
  There is no road because it's the past.
  Places like this (are) exist naturally
  but they are very difficult to notice.
  Thanks to the road we found this.
  And we put the barrier here. So that no-one accidentally falls into the past.
  If everything goes well, in a moment I'll make the first time travel ever.
  Unfortunately, if I succeed, the phrase "first ever" will make no sense anymore.
  But such are the prices of scientific discoveries.
  Portals like this are a little unstable.
  But no need to be afraid. It won't stop working.
  Anyway, if for some reason it stopped,
  the energy created from it would destroy the whole world anyway
  so it makes no difference to us.
  What I'm trying to say is that the time distance between this and this side
  is not always the same.
  So for example, if I go there and come back
  it may happen that I don't return immediately
  but, for example, in two weeks
  or I return before I left.
  But htat (that) shouldn't be a big problem. We can work with that.
  Anyway, I'll look around now to see if nobody is watching.
  I don't want the world to find out about this too soon.


{Balthasar takes out a pair of binoculars}

  It should be a secret for now.

{looking through the binoculars, he walks backwards OOV left.}

Cut to:
03:13 Scene 4b: The same shot as Scene 4a: the camera has not moved. We are still looking at the gate with the bike.

{Past-Balthasar approaches from the Past (i.e. from beyond the gate), climbs over the gate, gets on the bike, and walks it OOV right}

{present Balthasar returns from OOV right}

  Ok, the area is clear, no-one sees this.
  Everything's OK.
  Now I'll just take my


{Balthasar now sees there is no bicycle}

  Where's the bike? There was a bike here.
  What happened to my bike?
  There's no-one here, who could take my bike?
  No, what's that.
  I want to discover the past, other times, other worlds,
  and someone steals my bike.
  No, that's unfair.
  Whatever, what's one bike when the whole past waits for me.
  I'll go on my way now!


{he crosses the portal into the past, i.e. jumps over to the far side of the gate}

04:12 Scene 5: in the past: an empty meadow, some hills in the distance.
{Balthasar enters from OOV right, then looks around}

   O, it looks like I did it.
  I'm in the past.
  It looks like a past.
  So what year do we have now?
  The watch shows 1983.
  Maybe that's because no-one wound it up since 83?
  But that's still a reference point, good as any other.
  So, where should I go now?
  Where is… anything?
  Oh, great, I didn't take my map of the past.
  How am I supposed to find anything now without my map?
  I'll get lost in the past.
  Why did I leave my map of the past on the bike that was stolen?
  Well, then I go back home. I don't want to get lost in this past.
  The past has to wait.


{he walks back to the right and OOV}

05:06 Scene 6: We are still in the past, now looking towards the gate/portal. We see past-Balthasar on the future side of the gate, with the bike leaning up against it as before: but from our POV the bike is facing left and leaning aganst the far side of the gate.
{We are seeing the same action as at the end of Scene 4a, but from this POV. past-Balthasar has the binoculars and is looking around. He walks backwards OOV right.}

  Ooh, there's my bike! Exactly where I left it. That's lucky.

05:13 Scene 7: A hand-held shot: we are seeing Balthasar's own POV as he:
{Balthasar approaches the gate, jumps over it back into the present, and gets on the bicycle. (This is noticably similar to the action at the beginning of Scene 4b, i.e. "Balthasar" has become "past-Balthasar".)}

05:18 Scene 8: looking sideways across the road (the gate is OOV to the left).
{Balthasar is walking the bicycle and engages the kickstand.}

  Ok, I'll check if nothing got lost.
  There's my time traveller bag,
  There it is!


{He gets out a map and looks at it briefly.}

  That's my map of the past!
  I'm saved!
  Is this the correct map?
  Yes, it is.
  So, now, another try.
  But this time I take the bike.
  With me.


05:49 Scene 4c: Same shot as 4a/4b.
{Balthasar walks in from OOV right with the bike and leans it against the gate (bike facing to the left this time). Then picks it up and places it on the other side of the gate, then climbs over the gate himself.}

  The pump fell off.

06:01 Scene 9: in the past. A few evergreen trees.
{Balthasar walks the bike in from OOV left, then engages the kickstand. The bicycle now does not have its tire-pump.}

  So, where now?
  What will my map tell me?
  Where am I in the past?
  Open, already!


{Balthasar is looking at a map}

  Don't hide the secrets of the past from me.
  Ok, where am I?
  Wait, …
  What are these… trees… bushes… whatever… doing here?
  That's not on the map.
  It's not there.
  I was here a moment ago and there was nothing here.
  There are no such trees in the past!
  What is th…
  Ah, I know now! I understand everything now!
  There WERE thees (trees). But not in this past.
  Long ago, they were, even earlier.
  I'm not in the past that I wanted.
  I'm not int (in) the past where I wanted to be.
  That's the other past, the wrong one, where I didn't want to be.


{we can hear a distant bell ringing}

Something went wrong with the portal.
I have to try again.


07:09 Scene 4d: Same shot as 4a/4b. It is getting near dusk.
{Balthasar approaches from the Past (far) side, entering from OOV left, holding the map but with no bicycle. He climbs over the gate into the Present.}

  Ok, I'll try once again. To go to the good past.
  Oh no!
  My bike disappeared again!
  I left it in the wrong, ancient past or something.
  No time for waiting, I'm going back for it.


{Balthasar suddenly jumps back over the gate into the past and leaves OOV left}

07:33 Scene 10: Similar to scene 5. in the Past, looking across the meadow.
{Balthasar runs in from OOV right and stops.}

  Where's the bike?
  Oh no.
  I didn't want to be here.
  It's not the past I wanted.
  I mean, that IS the past I wanted but I don't want it now!
  I want the wrong past that I didn't want.
  I don't want the one I wanted. My bike's not here.
  Why does the portal work correctly when it…


{He looks around, esasperated, then leaves OOV right.}

  I'll go once again. Once again.

07:57 Scene 4e: Same shot as 4a/4b.
{Balthasar enters from where he left, i.e. from OOV left, far side of gate, and holding the map; he climbs back to our side.}

  I'm back here now.
  Now I have to do it correctly.
  I have to make sure if (I) go to the past I want or the one I don't.
  Apparently, there are different pasts here.
  But that's what the binoculars are for.


{Balthasar uses the binoculars again, to look away from us, i.e. towards the meadow/past/far side of the gate.}

08:25 Scene 11: Telephoto shot into the distance: we are seeing Balthasar's view through the binoculars. A bike like that in Scene 9 (without the tire-pump) is standing unattended.

  There it is! There's my bike!
  What a great luck, it's the wrong past again.
  I'll go for it.


08:33 Scene 4f: Same shot as 4a/4b.
{Balthasar turns to face us, then looks through the binoculars again.}

  I'll go in a moment.
  O, someone is coming here.
  Someone's coming here. I have to hide.


{Balthasar runs towards us and OOV right}

08:45 Scene 12a: Some small trees.
{Balthasar is hiding amidst the trees, looking through the binoculars.}

  That's a bike coming here.
  I have to hide now and see what happens.


08:53 Scene 13: Telephoto shot, looking beyond the road, towards houses.
{Balthasar rides in on the bike, (now with ite tire-pump) from OOV left, dismounts, and walks the bike OOV right}

08:59 Scene 12b: Same shot as scene 12a.
{Balthasar stops using the binoculars.}

  Hey! that's my bike!
  I don't have to go for it. It already came here.
  I'm really lucky.
  Now I have to wait for a good opportunity, when Idon't (I don't) look
  and then go out.


09:10 Scene 14: Balthasar's POV looking at the gate from behind the small trees. The bike is leaning against the gate facing towards us.
{We see the same action as in scene 4b, from this POV. Balthasar approaches from the Past, OOV right. He climbs over the gate, gets on the bike, and walks it towards us.}

09:23 Scene 12c: Same shot as scene 12a.
{Balthasar is frustrated.}

  No,
  I can't take my own bike from myself
  Because I've just stolen my own bike.
  What's that supposed to mean?
  Again, I have to go into that wrong, acient (ancient), horrible past.
  And expose myself to dangers
  And all that beacuse (because) I stole my own bike from myself.
  I have no choice, I have to go.


09:47 Scene 4g: Same shot as 4a/4b.
{Balthasar enters from OOV right}

  I'll try to do it quickly
  so maybe nothing will happen to me.


{He climbs over te gate into the Past and runs away OOV left.}

{After a pause, Balthasar comes back from OOV left, with a different bike (this one has bigger tires and a stronger frame: an off-road or "mountain" bike), then lifts it over the gate into the Present, then climbs back over the gate himself. He stands with the bike and rests for a moment.}

  I did it.
  I did it.
  Wait, … that's not my bike!
  This is not my bike!


Cut to:
10:27 Scene 15: We see the gate as in scenes 4a/4b, but from a position slightly to the right.
{Balthasar is standing with the bike exactly as before.}

  Oh, no.
  I stole a bike from the past.
  What's that supposed to mean?
  I'm no longer I (a) time traveller.
  I've become a bicycle thief!
  Wait a moment!
  Where did such a bike come from in the past?
  That was a very distant past.
  There were no bikes then.
  OH NO!
  I left my bike there.
  Maybe they found it and learned how to make bicycles.
  I changed the future!
  I changed the future, the results can be horrible.
  No, no, no.


{He begins to look around}

  Can this be fixed?
  No, it can't be fixed anymore.
  Ok, I'm out of here before something happens.
  I don't want to have anything to do with it. No.


{He walks the bike quickly towards us and OOV left.}

11:13 Scene 16: The road, leading back towards the viillage.
{Balthasar rides away from us.}

Title:
  KONIEC
  THE END

Dissolve to:
11:22 Scene 17: A still taken in summer. The shot is similar to Scenes 4a/4b/etc. but further from the gate and lower to the ground. Close to us, entirely covering our view of the gate is a bike similar to the blue ones featured during most of the film, except that this one is painted orange and has no basket or tire-pump.

Title:
  1983

(I found a few typos, and in each case I put the original typing in (parnetsehs) parentheses and followed it by what I think you meant to type.)

Mrorl popped back out of the little door and slid down a firepole to a bank of relays, which he pushed aside to reveal row upon row of valves, all but one aglow. This he yanked triumphantly and tossed to a startled Balthacarius, as Mrorl installed a new tube. Returning to the first console with the main lever still on *full*, Mrorl shouted to his friend encouraging him to try it again. Balthacarius requested a verse and the Bard spoke:

      Nyan, nyan, Newpixbot.

  "Well, that's an improvement!" shouted Mrorl, not entirely convinced. "The last line particularly, did you notice?"
  "If this is all you have to show me..." said Balthacarius, the embodiment of politeness, eyeing the door.
  "Ch**rp!" said Mrorl and again disappeared inside the machine. After more banging and clanging, the acrid smell of shorted-out wires and the acrid tone of an even shorter temper, Mrorl popped his head out of the little door up on level five and yelled, "Now try it!"
  Balthacarius complied. The OTTronic Bard shuddered, shaking the building and the ground and nearby trees, upsetting a few nearby chirpies, and began to Orate:

  You have done so much steakish work on the wiki, thank you!

My enjoyment, especially if others appreciate the results too.

mrob27 wrote:  When attempting to perform edits, I had a slightly different problem: If editing the same page a 2nd time it acted like my previous edit never happened. To work around this, I have to copy all the original text and save it on my own computer as a plain text file (I use the "source editor" mode on Wikia), then perform my edits in the external editor, then copy-paste the whole thing into Wikia. I think if I were willing to Wait a while for the servers to become aware of edit #1, I could do edit #2 without having it "forget" the previous changes.

Odd, I don't recall having run into that. Maybe it was some mustard that has been fixed by Wikia since the time you have been encountering it (when was that exactly?), or it may have actually been a caching issue local to your system. I'll keep an eye on it, to be sure.

mrob27 wrote:  Regarding the OTTercomics page, I happen to like what you have done, but I don't want to be a bully about this. That is part of the reason the debate fizzled: I like to let others have the last word, and I tend to try to avoid repeating what I said because what's the point?

No more do I wish to be a bully, but now something had to be done quickly about splitting the page, or so it at least looked to me, and that meant an opportunity of at the same time doing something about the layout with collapsing sections that clearly not everyone was happy with (which of course leaves open the possibility that I'm unaware of a silent majority preferring it that way). If at some future time I see a consensus emerging for any other solution, I'm willing to help implement that too. Anyway, as it seems I'm currently the only regularly active OTTer on those parts of the wiki that document the creative output on the OTT, which has the advantage of not having to worry much about getting into anyone else's way while working on the wiki. But certainly I would welcome it very much if other OTTers get more active on the wiki again, too.

mrob27 wrote:  I tested a few browsers and posted back at OTT:2128:2, but basically, my problem with the old auto-collapsing page was that it took a v-e-r-y long time to load and sucked up huge amounts of bandwidth. It was loading all of the images! That meant I could not use the page at all, unless I turn off image loading in my browser. I suggested getting rid of the "auto-collapsing" sections because it reduces that problem: my browser (and hopefully other well-designed ones) only loads images "on an as-needed basis" when you scroll down to the part of the page containing them. I also think that the perceived problem that led to the auto-collapsing thing is solved perfectly well by using the "table of contents" at the top, where you can click on something to jump to a section far down on the page.

Yes, together with the "Back to top" links that I've been careful to keep or insert at the end of each section. As far as I see it, that should keep navigation within the pages pretty molpish even without collapsing sections, if the individual sections don't get too long.

If you need help understanding what's going on there, the xkcd Time Wiki may be useful.
