Cute sayings?

Who thinks up those cute sayings that pop up when you hover the pointer over the asterisks under a user's name? Are they generated by a robot? Or do the moderators of this board have incredible amounts of time on their hands?

I hope it's the latter. Or maybe both.

They are a large conglomerate of contributions from quite a few people, but credit must be given to Nate (the Great) for not only being a major contributor but for being the one responsible, I believe, for initiating and organizing and implementing the massive expansion of them. Nate's humour has a tendency to take the most delightfully amusing quarter-turn to eleventy-past-odd, for which I am most grateful, especially in this particular example.

Cheers,
Marc

If, by example, you are referring to your current blue squaredness, then YES .... !

I'm having trouble with this computer on MobileRead only, where nearly all of the images are not showing up. I do get the texts though. And for the little blurb under the names, I seem to get about 10 or 12 boxes of them.

That said, what I see is "GeoffC can grip it by the husk" and "montsnmags gives new meaning to the word 'superlative'". Does that mean that besides having a screen full of red x boxes and text, I'm not even getting the right comments? (Maybe I don't really have a set the Star Wars action figures? )

I wouldn't worry about it ... mine seems to change every time I look at it ....

If you say "I can grip it by the husk", that's a different saying to the one I noticed yesterday, and is different to the one I can currently see ..... (I'm at one with the great books in the World" [does that mean I'm old, musty, with a tinge of mildew and out of touch !!!!!!!!])

This is like a game! Is it karma-driven? Now it is "GeoffC is not required to obey the law of gravity."

I'm more concerned about the fact the I don't have any pictures, although it is nice to see what everyone is without hovering. I miss having avatars and smilies and all of the other little icons. (I still don't know what is wrong. I saw two avatars yesterday! Maybe I need to delete my cookies or something.)

If I uncheck those boxes, then the red x boxes for the avatars go away. All the other red x boxes are still there.

It's just odd because this is the only site that does it.

actually Teh Karma knows all, and tells all.

also, "they are plucked from the ether .... "






or something.


but really, rendering to Caesar, and all that, the original batch of sayings were invented by NatCh, who is sadly a bit less present around here lately. they were further supplemented some time later in a group effort which nate the great (among several others) did participate in. i may have had a hand in organising the sacrificial offerings to Teh Karma in hopes that our collective suggestions would be considered worthy. i am pretty sure it was the bottomless ZCD which did the trick.
