would it be possible to relax the number of images in a signature laws. i've got a lot of hastily abandoned projects and i don't want any of them feeling left out.

Papers: With some cursory googling, I think the issue with emoji is our not-very-recent version of myBB (the forum software). Pinary was talking about updating it, so I'll try get an estimate of when that'd happen?

Ix: how many would you like/seems reasonable?

ten already seems like a pretty reasonable number for people who aren't neck deep in adventures they refuse to ever officially abandon, i'd like another five it would make me happy :>

They're web crawlers - for Baidu and Google respectively.

Seen slightly less frequently but also doing the rounds are Shornitoot (Yahoo/Slurp), The OMGUSmobile (msn) and A ghooooost (Internet Archive/wayback machine).

Oh, that's cool! I thought the names sounded familiar, but I couldn't place them. I didn't know you could assign names to specific crawlers on forums.

I have to ask where the names 'Shornitoot' and 'The OMGUSmobile' came from.

Shornitoot is the result of some of Schazer's sleep-deprived ramblings. OMGUSmobile is just a reference to some silly jargon from games of Mafia.

Now you know.

Thanks! I was convinced that Shornitoot was a corrupted version of Zarniwoop, but I guess it was not meant to be.

How can I make multiple repeated spaces that don't compress themselves back down into one space? Like a &nbsp or something, or how spaces are handled with the [code] tag.

The past few years, most forum software* won’t dare to mess with it if you just input the actual nbsp directly. Opt+space on OSX, and presumably Alt-code 0160 on Windows.

* ... plus the entire stack that makes it happen on at least two but probably more computers, on which there are more components that could possibly make this go wrong than most people would care to know about

What are the exact rules on Necromancy? I know most forums aren't happy with it and it's banned in the Mages Guild, but what about this forum? I don't want to break no unspoken rules, y'know? :3atermelon

Don't look at me. I'm just as confused by the bear as you people are...

Depends on the subforum. Hawkspace and [Whatever it's being called this week], it's totally okay and probably encouraged. General chatter, probably. Anywhere else, especially something that was actively being run by someone, probably not.

Well, bumping your own old adventure with an update (or even a "hey, update coming soon") is obviously fine.

Bumping an old adventure that isn't yours is probably not a good idea, unless the author has specifically asked for suggestions (but they can bump for that themselves). You could toss fanart in there, though.

But it really isn't that big of a deal, mostly because it doesn't happen that often and a lot of subforums aren't that active day-to-day. As long as you're bumping with discretion, it should be fine.

Excellent! Owner of a story wanted me to possibly throw a few suggestions on his old stories, so I didn't want to cause any issues by doing so...Thank you!
