Oh, hey, I don't know if the Time Watchers/Waiters/Wasters/etc. debate was ever settled, but FWIW, "Time Keepers" always makes me picture a stiff-lipped, trenchcoated Cillian Murphy chasing JT.

Wait... that movie was called "In Time"... was it a before-prophecy? Were there any sand castles in that movie?

Spoiler:
They went to the beach, but it involved buttnakedness and glowing green water, not sand castles...

I'm forming my own schism which believes the reunification of the Newpix and Newpic factions was an error and promotes that the correct singular/plural should be Newpix/Newpixies. I mean, who else is such a small castle intended for, if not pixies?

No! We have to worship the time again or we won't get a newpix, they're gonna be so mad when they get backr

Cueball! Why is the tower to your right, our left, not crenelated? How are your archers supposed to defend that wall? Fix it, Cueball!

Apparently not. We have angered Randall with our low posts-to-newpix ratio. C'mon, Eurasia! Most Americans with any sense are asleep, it's up to you guys!

So... none of the other errors ever took this long to resolve...

I'm scared. I feel a sense of chaos and disillusionment is ahead...

I'm reminded of some lines by Yeats:

"Things fall apart. The center cannot hold.
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world..."

Morning fellow Newpixians... so only almost 30 newpages to catch up on.... I could be some time. However with a sneak peak at the latest image I am quite excited.

Quarter of a newpix to the next one. Maybe Cueball just happened to be in the exact same spot twice in a row.

We are now only 7 minutes away from the new newpix... and we haven't even had the last one yet!

What if this one doesn't come either???????????????

Or worse, what if Randall had decided to double the length of a newpix now, just to torture us?

In my experience, it takes the whole damn daythere I go with that old thinking again. It takes 30-40 newpix.

I was wondering if he may have put in some sort of decay algorithm to mess with us after a while to start lengthening the times between newpix

Maybe he wants us to hit 5000 before he'll let us see the next one. Not as messy a sacrifice as the goats, either.

So, now the question is: was that just a random error that one of them got missed, or did cueball just not move (highly unlikely in my opinion), or has the time now extended to an hour between newpix releases?
