Yikes, I go away for a few hours, and I've got
four newpages to catch up...

Thanks, much appreciated!
descor wrote:Is newpixbot broken?
Just want to confirm what people already concluded: newpixbot posted because it couldn't find a recent post containing the current hash¹.

The 400th newpage, is (was) that a leap newpage?

You mean, like this
Aww, that's so cute, look how naive we were back then... (I say “we”, but I think nobody from page 1 is around anymore.)
HAL9000 wrote:I'm officially declaring a breakaway sect that names the first poster on each page (at that page's genesis, so ignoring changes due to deletion/mod-approved newbie posts) as Vatican Milliner's Perfect Customer for that page.
We're doing that again?
I can't wait until I'm the first poster on the page, so I can disband the papacy again...

Too early to tell. Sea level hasn't risen much yet since it was built; once it rises significantly above the ground level behind the dyke, we'll see what happens.

*waves* Still back here, plodding along as usual!
BlitzGirl acknowledged my existence! I'm so happy! *waves back*
Anyway, we've seen plenty of activity from you since I posted that, so I wasn't worried anymore.

So, it's actually just water. sad-trombone.
Indeed, this is the first time the word “water” is mentioned, so now we know it's not caffeinatedsemencancerbabies² or whatever³.

I have been uploading the image as an attachment. I figured it is both better proof against server problems and preserves the record against change. Is posting the url better?
Woo hoo! Time for a new schism! It's been too long.
The newpixbot doesn't seem to recognise this method of GONGing and I'm reluctant to get on the wrong side of our future robotic overlords.
The newpixbot actually only cares about the hash¹, so if you post 56cc974221e231683bd46f5a3185f3660b9f791ad051257d1b42f8e474ddc133.png with an unchanged filename, newpixbot will be happy and not post. (This has happened in the past.)
However, I'd stick with posting the link. That's what most of us are doing, so that's nice and consistent. Also, imgs.xkcd.com is very stable, much more so than the forum server (or c.xkcd.com, etc.).
¹: which probably isn't really a hash⁴
²: why does my spelling checker not like this word, it's perfectly good English, no?
³: but then again, why should we believe Cueball, what does he know about the sea?
⁴: can you do that, re-use a footnote?
