Post "normally". Do not suggest filters. Do not request titles. Feel free to hunt for filtered words. Express which filters you enjoyed.

Covers a decent amount, at least.

Oh yeah, this probably needs a Time-thread-to-normal translation. Over there an empty spoiler is usually read as "Wait for it" (the main title text for 1190).

The official date of madness starting is going to be soon. It will probably finish several days later and should definitely be over by the following week.

If you don't like it, leave the forums for this time. You have been warned.

Also, given we have mods in Austraila, soon might be slightly sooner for some.

Maybe it's waiting for a Friday or Saturday night drinkfest at a mod's house? That's been known to trigger most of the nutsery.

Makes sense. Last year it started on a Saturday, year before that was on a Friday (may vary depending on local time zone of course).

Your madness has started from the moment you requested pinkmagenta.

I noticed the new serious-discussion Madness thread in SFI today. Thanks for that.

It made me look up last year's discussion, and:

I don't remember what Red Hal suggested, but I'm pretty sure that if Azrael posted about it like that last year, in the thread where people complained about how awful Madness is, it's more for our benefit than yours.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Notice how when I reposted the outputs from that thread as an FAQ at the top of this thread that line disappeared? He had a neat idea about a forum-wide game to be run concurrently, but I forgot about it until yesterday and now I'm just lazy.

That's a good idea any day. Too bad scientists are too busy extracting tears from rain*, rather than developing star ships.

*then again, this might prove useful once you claim victory and you want to drink their tears.
