Since we'll be rewatching, can we do the whole "director's commentary" thing? Or OTTer's commentary, rather.

Okay, I'll start:
These opening frames turned out well. Such simple yet profound imagery, with just the slightest shift in the position of the characters the readers who heeded the caption were hooked, anxiously anticipating what will happen next.

Continued commentary for np0002:
Note the way Megan casually rests her arm upon her knee. (I believe it's her left arm but it's tricky to tell.) How casual Cuegan is, here at the dawn of Time.

Happy OTTversery! I'm too tired and it's too late for anything but plaintext from me. But this thread has made this year one of my best so far, and I hope it continues to do so. I molpy down now, and await the many cakes, unbasements, and festivities of the morrow. And I can't help but think Randall will at least make a reference in the what if or Wednesday's comic.
Molpy Down, Coma, I go gently.
See you all tommorow.

The Zanclean Zodiac

Image

Fun and frolic is the order of the day. Sandcastles are built, yet so are real castles. Little streams that are fun to jump over turn into gargantuan waterfalls that may be fun and scary to jump. The importance of everything is shaded by its stated purpose, yet to ᘊᖊᑦᓄᓭᘖ some abandoned art on the shore seems to have the importance of the sea itself. The river has come back. To play? ᘊᖊᑦᓄᓭᘖ plays back, converting the structure into a raft. Sharing her joy with her peoples, ᘊᖊᑦᓄᓭᘖ begins a new journey for the humans.

continued commentary (np0004)
With a wistful look back in the previous frame, Megan now shifts her attention back toward the future and the sea which unbeknownst to our protagonists will play an integral part as the story unfolds ... (Cueball, however, begins to show his colors as the dim witted straight man as he continues to stare blankly into space)

It's been fun, but I think it's time to molpy down. Should be a fun ketchup when I rouse from coma.

I personally am holding out for the What-If book. I think it is likely Randall will have turned some of his Zanclean-flood and related research into a What-If and for whatever reason decided to put it in the "use this in the book" pile.

BlitzGirl wrote: Newpix #2 is now live on mrob's OTC replay!

Oh thanks for reminding me: if it's in live mode, I'll add a tagline like "(live replay)" to the status line right below the oldpix. It's a little too easy to hit a button by mistake and take it out of Live Replay mode...

BlitzGirl wrote: How long is oldpixbot going to be posting ONGs? Just for todip, or until it's cycled through the OTC again?

I thought about this, after @mscha mentioned his oldpixbot plans to me by PM. For the benefit of future Blitzers I think it would be nice to have some of these ONGs in the OTT over the next 4 mips. Personally, I think doing every frame would be a bit too much, at least after the novelty wears off, but perhaps we could have one or two frames every Newpage.
    I definitely think that a per-Newpage rate is better than a per-dix rate, because if the oldpixbot posts are thought to be too much, then the logical solution is to have a limit that is some constant fraction of the overall OTT traffic. OTTers will need to figure out what rate is a good limit.
    Of course we might also want to give priority to the some frames over others, but that could be a separate decision.

H Yes, I was a-coma at the Moment. It couldn't be helped...

How is Cuegan going to ask about the cave? It doesn't seem like Ms. Frizzle-bean knows any Unglish, or she would have used it earlier.

That is such a wowterful Sandcastle, ggh! Looks like y'all had fun making it. :mrgreen:
@mrob: I let Zooman deliver the scrumptious donuts to ED for that ottified pun. :wink: I really like the idea of having oldpixbot deliver occasional oldnewpix in sync with the progression of "live" Time, especially key moments. I think you're right, once or twice per newpage would be a very molpish rate if mscha could make that work.

Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Awesomeful ottifying of Beidah, mrob. :D
Hmm, I didn't understand a seaish amount of the hotdog update. Might be Time to finally close that tab... I haven't actually played it in wips.

Continued commentary for np0013:
Cueball stands! Just look at him in all his noble Cueness. Image
I wonder how much Cuegan has been on their feet in the OTC in comparison to sitting/lying down. Megan's head raises slightly, some semencancercoffee trickling from her hair.

BlitzGirl wrote: How long is oldpixbot going to be posting ONGs? Just for todip, or until it's cycled through the OTC again?

I thought about this, after @mscha mentioned his oldpixbot plans to me by PM. For the benefit of future Blitzers I think it would be nice to have some of these ONGs in the OTT over the next 4 mips. Personally, I think doing every frame would be a bit too much, at least after the novelty wears off, but perhaps we could have one or two frames every Newpage.
    I definitely think that a per-Newpage rate is better than a per-dix rate, because if the oldpixbot posts are thought to be too much, then the logical solution is to have a limit that is some constant fraction of the overall OTT traffic. OTTers will need to figure out what rate is a good limit.
    Of course we might also want to give priority to the some frames over others, but that could be a separate decision.

Well, for now, oldpixbot is running on the old schedule. (So, posting every oldpix 10 minutes after the UNGπ – unless ninja'd, like slinches and mrob27 have already done.) This will continue until T** **d plus one yip, or I change the schedule, or my account gets blocked because of too many double, triple, quadruple, ... posts. Image
I can easily reschedule to run less often (e.g. once every 4 longpix, in that case probably out of phase with Time After Time), or fairly easily only post if there hasn't been an oldpixbot post in the last 19 posts (so that there will be no more than 2 oldpixbot posts per NP).
Only posting “interesting” frames would be trickier. After all, how would oldpixbot decide which frames are interesting?i
Alternatively, I could simply turn oldpixbot off after the first dip of the new yip.

If consensus is reached about what to do, and I don't seem to be around anymore (I'll crawl out of the basement some time to ketchup the 90-odd NP I'm behind, I promise!), can someone send me a PM?
[I won't be here during the Madness, though; I can't stand that. I hate bullying, which is what that is IMO.]

π: UNG – past tense of ONG. Exactly one yip after the corresponding ONG.
i: Also, I can prove that all frames are interesting. Suppose that not all frames are interesting. In that case, there is a first uninteresting frame. Being the first uninteresting one makes that frame interesting. That's a contradiction, ergo, all frames must be interesting. QЕD.

I think 2 oldpixbot posts per NP is a treeish rate to start with. Plus, it will be interesting to see which frames will happen to be posted then. If we find the rate to be unmolpish, we can always ask mscha to change it.
