        Essentially my username came into being like this:

        Me: ignis
        Some forum: Your username is unavailable.
        Me: ..and why is it? ('cept minus the spaces and punctuation)
        Some forum: Your username is available.
        Me: Close enough.

      hey andwhyisit, another forum I use has a rule where a post doesn't contribute to your post count if it's under 140 characters. I was wonderin what the top 10 posters would look like if that rule was enforced here, think you could query it up for funsies?

        I figured you would just do some SQL wizardry for a one-off thing but, I also have no idea what IPB's schema looks like so take what I say with a bag of salt. Up to you, just thought it'd be neat to see and figured it wouldnt hurt to ask.

        To tide you over, I looked through the most recent 125 posts of the first 18 people on the list of top posters and used a handy chrome plugin to see which of the hard-to-tell ones were above or under 140 characters. I then divided how many of those 125 posts had 140 characters or more by 125, and then multiplied that number by the user's post count. I wasn't sure if BBCode counted or not, so I didn't count youtube videos or images in this, but I did count the content of quotes. If the post was one from the IRC notable moments thread, then I didn't count the part it quoted from IRC. Here's what I got:

        1. andwhyisit: (96/125)*5232 = 4018
        2. GIRakaCHEEZER: (109/125)*3114 = 2715
        3. S. P. Gardebiter: (79/125)*3184 = 2012
        4. VoidMage_Lowell: (99/125)*2052 = 1625
        5. Captain Fabulous: (55/125)*3675 = 1617
        6. Doors: (54/125)*3494 = 1509
        7. xristosx: (72/125)*2583 = 1488
        8. Noxid: (40/125)*4630 = 1482
        9. Lace: (51/125)*3049 = 1244
        10. Cultr1: (70/125)*2126 = 1191

        This isn't perfect since I'm not sure if ignoring youtube videos and images was right, and also the most recent 125 posts might be less conclusive for some than others, but this does still show some interesting data.

        I just realised that I never got back to you after fixing the problem. Sorry about that whole debacle. It was my fault it broke to begin with. Essentially I wrote a redirect to handle some document root level mistyped urls and it affected the forum directory when not suffixed with a slash, because it saw it as a file without an extension.

      Something odd's happening for me on the CS Lite skin. Whenever I click on the logo, instead of bringing me to the main page of the forums, it brings me to the tribute site. Any idea why that is?

        I'm pretty sure everybody over here thought that the like button was one of the first really dumb things about IPBoard when we switched over to it a while ago.
        I'm pretty sure there's an even more specific answer though.

      Um, hoi. I wanted to inform you about something I found. It's in the "I love you" thread of the Satellite Lounge, page one. The first post Shane makes...um...this pretty much says it: <a href='http://oi61.tinypic.com/293yhbs.jpg' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'><a href="http://oi61.tinypic.com/293yhbs.jpg" rel='nofollow external' class="su_links">http://oi61.tinypic.com/293yhbs.jpg</a></a> . So basically whenever I hover my mouse cursor over it it says that I can go to Shane's userpage even though I'm not directly hovering over his username. (Just wanted you to know o-o; )

      Andwhy sorry to bother you but I have an associate who wants to become an active member of the forums, but he can't post or edit anything yet. He's been an inactive member for a while now, but I was just wondering why he can't do anything.

      Hello, andwhyisit. I don't if it's only my browser going crazy, but I'm using Opera Mini on my mobile, and most of the time, when I load a topic, on the top there are two signatures of Noxid, his avatar, avatar thumbnail and a wall of text. Quoting...

      Shane's neglected account has been hijacked by the same frauster who had impersonated him. Now, he's going on insulting the Shane's fiends that already had an account here (like me and Randalf) as well as insulting Shane's other friends who signed up just to attempt to have a friendly conversation with him. He's clearly violating forum rule #2 ("Arguing and debating are allowed, and even encouraged to a certain degree. However, any instances of flaming/trolling/personal attacks or anything else the staff deems inappropriate will not be tolerated and will be dealt with immediately.")

      Hi, it's been awhile, but I wondered if a port to Game Boy or Game Boy Color is even possible or can be done. Or maybe has. I know you're the one to create most ports here so you'd be the best to ask. Thanks. .
      1. andwhyisit
        andwhyisit
        I just port mods into existing ports of CS. Porting the game engine itself is another beast entirely.

        Plus for a gameboy (mono/color) port I'd expect you would need to:
        1. Rewrite all the music.
        2. Redo all of the graphics.
        3. Take creative liberties with the size of entities.
        4. Take creative liberties with the number of entities on screen.
        5. Hardcode everything in the data directory.
        6. Write the entire game from scratch in raw Z80 Assembly.

        Not at all likely to happen.
