Then you should take that up with teh Fulpster.

I blame Stamper.

Heh, Spyro the Dragon is purple. Does that mean he's gay?
I just said it CAN symbolise teh gaiety, not that it has to. O_o

So he could be. :O

Most of the way down on that page is a rectangular flag with magenta = gay, purple = bi, and blue = straight. Boom.

BINGO!

Also, did you get Wikitrapped?

Yes, and I can't be arsed listening to the 3 minute song. Maybe if I was linked to it here. XD
I was trying to slip out of that duty, but I had a feeling you couldn't be arsed to find it on your own. Grumble, grumble... First one's the song set to a slideshow of stills from the movie itself, second one is a satirical music video with video footage of American military might + the song:

Ohh, I remember that song now.

Don't you hate the chavs now?
If they're responsible for no more Wendy's in London, I'd certainly have more reason to than ever before!

I bet they fucking are.

What reasons do I have now... oh, I've heard that love that Burburry crap, which looks like shite.

Yep, their Burberry crap IS shite. However, the scallies in this area don't wear Burberry, but tracksuits instead.

Want me to change their names to GLG, LLL and TLT then? Only for sending you them, of course.
Yes, plz.

Alright then, I'll send them to you sometime soon.

you can draw the ENTIRE thing on a blank head. A lot of people would say... draw a Bahamut sprite on a blank face. #;-}>

If that's possible.

Meh, I was still a level 30 mod on Retrogade for a very short time.
"I was a level 30 mod..." is such a gimmick topic title. #;-}>

Well I WAS!

THIS is the right page:

Nope. Just looked at 2 wiki pages really quickly.

Not great fashion sense, but better than Burberry (aka the ugliest plaid/tartan on Earth) everywhere on teh bodies.

Tracksuits = very Italian American mafioso stereotype, BTW. Seen Sopranos?

Alright then, I'll send them to you sometime soon.

Woot woot, I'll send you back my gfox Mii and if you like, my Rene Magritte (he's my artist for the Check Mii Out channel/contests).

Haven't you ever used the Check Mii Out channel? DL it from Wii Shop if you haven't already, and you'll star to see what people have done with the Mii tools. They use the mouth, eyebrows, eyes themselves, etc. etc.... change the shapes, angles, positions on the face... to turn them into things FAR different from what they're supposed to be.

I'm pretty sure it does now... at least, it seems to be correct as of today's date (but then perhaps it only updates once a week or something and it was simply a coincidence that I checked it on the day of it updating).

Heh. Silly Yoinks.

Yes, it updates daily, not weekly or randomly, guys. It started up again about 7-10 days ago. I'd look through my posts to find the exact date, but I can't be arsed right now.

I'm going on faith here, because I haven't looked at it in the past few days, but after we noticed it was going again, I checked my saves total on the top 50 saves list 3 days in a row, and it was different every day. It's updating daily again.

I'm a little far from that to even make those users significant to me for the time being. I'm closing in on the top 250, so that's always good news... AnzRage is 1 deposit behind GreenGiant99 and I'm a further 2 deposits behind AnzRage, so it's only a matter of time and a matter of how much GreenGiant wants to stay at rank #250. That's where he was on iscrulz' latest update.

Oh, and Graham, Luke, Trish and myself have been sent to you. Enjoy those Miis.

Well, the Saves list is updating on a daily basis now, so I'm taking it as written that the other lists will follow suit.

I didn't pay much heed to the blam list except to glance at my current rank on it, but the exp list was definitely showing Pimp's current exp, so... yeah. Why would they have fixed the saves list to operate daily and not the other two, anyway? #;-}>

Did you send them straight to my mii plaza or something? I've never sent miis that way, I sent mine to you via typing up a message to you, and slapping my mii in the mii slot of the letter. Maybe that's why he went to the parade? Go to the letter and see if there's any other option.

Hey, depending what happens to iscrulz with his Top EXP users update, I might run the updates myself.

Hot piss, that's another piece of the puzzle of the 'New Wave' of NGers taking over the Stat lists. Auz is really the ony one who has been doing this for a long while - I've been at it less than a year, myself, though it seems like longer.

Well, the Saves list is updating on a daily basis now, so I'm taking it as written that the other lists will follow suit.
I didn't pay much heed to the blam list except to glance at my current rank on it, but the exp list was definitely showing Pimp's current exp, so... yeah. Why would they have fixed the saves list to operate daily and not the other two, anyway? #;-}>

Exactly my point. Newgrounds seems like it's getting close to running at peak efficiency, after the redesign, with what would seem like the majority of the bugs worked out of the system, so it's all good :)

I'm a little far from that to even make those users significant to me for the time being. I'm closing in on the top 250, so that's always good news... AnzRage is 1 deposit behind GreenGiant99 and I'm a further 2 deposits behind AnzRage, so it's only a matter of time and a matter of how much GreenGiant wants to stay at rank #250. That's where he was on iscrulz' latest update.
Well, they're tied right now, not sure if one of 'em didn't deposit yet, but... hmmm... good luck with that top 250 cracking, man.

Seems that GreenGiant doesn't want to surrender his position #250, so he'll deposit until he passes someone, then will allow AnzRage past, shortly follwoed by the same practice for me. I'll get there eventually. *Watches everyone in the top 250 Experience deposit daily, cries*

We listmakerers call that the "listmaking time dilution effect."

Exactly my point. Newgrounds seems like it's getting close to running at peak efficiency, after the redesign, with what would seem like the majority of the bugs worked out of the system, so it's all good :)

Let's just hope they don't RE-redesign it before everything's back to normal. O_O

So you don't think they're actually quite tied yet, eh? Well, there's still a good 11.5 hours left in the NG day to find out.

Meanwhile, I noticed while logging my alts on NG log (15,000 exp for gfox! woot woot) that gfox is at #242. He'd been stuck at #244 for a good long while.

So worry not, you've got a couple (at least) folks slipping down towards you right now in the 251 spot. Hold on, not all 250 are depositing. #;-}>

OH NOE. ;_;

I got YouTube-trapped the other day.
Do tell. Whatcha see?

Have you ever heard of a guy named Irate Gamer? I had to see some of his videos after hearing all the criticism he's received for copying the Angry Video Game Nerd. After seeing some of his videos, I do agree with the critics. However, there are other reasons why he's one of the most hated people on the Internet.

Whilst I was YouTube-trapped, I had a look at videos from several users sharing their thoughts on Irate Gamer. Pretty interesting, I thought.

Yes I got him. He was in the Mii Parade and not sent right to the Mii Plaza. Oh well, your Mii character's there now and he's great! :D Does your gfox Mii look very much like you in real life? :)
Awesome.

Except that I don't wear sunglasses constantly and don't have gray hair, yeah, pretty much.

Yeah, I had a feeling the grey hair wasn't accurate. The sunglasses, however, might have been possible. :P Then again, how many times have I used the sunglasses post icon in my posts? I rarely wear sunglasses in real life.

Oh, and Graham, Luke, Trish and myself have been sent to you. Enjoy those Miis.

They should have been sent straight to your Mii Plaza. That's what happened when Afro_Stud sent his. I guess because of that message you sent me, your Mii went to the Mii Parade.

Hey, after the death of the Top 2000 EXP users, it's been difficult keeping track on who we can pass soon and who we cannot. A monthly EXP update would be nice, just like ramagi's list when she was still making them.

Yes, sorry for the mistake.

Well, given the almost total lack of response (but thanks for taking the time, gfoxcook, you always seem to indulge me and my more ridiculous posts), I guess I shouldn't have taken the silly route with this post.

Doesn't anyone else find it curious that so many rank gains would occur in such a small time? I'm so used to gaining a rank every few months that to have it all happen so quickly was very strange... I can't even remember when I gained 4 ranks in the space of a month.

There's nothing suspicious about it.

It COULD just be a coincidence. #;-}>

Now, if *I* were to gain 4 rankings in a month starting today, and move up from #63 to #59... yes... something weird would indeed be afoot! But you're not quite in my boat yet, sir. Don't get ahead of yourself!

Honestly, I don't mean to disagree, well, actually, I do mean to disagree, but when you reach the top 150 or so, ranking up normally takes quite a while, which makes this is a kinda excepcional event, in my experience. As I said, I normally would expect to gain a rank, say, every month or so. To be able to gain 4 times that much in the same period is pretty rare.

Not that I think that it's anything but a fortuitous coincidence (i.e., I don't honestly think of foul play or the likes, I was merely jesting). Just commenting on a small, not very important, but which (I found) interesting fact. Maybe I should restrict my attention to other, bigger things.

I hear you, every time I move up a rank in exp, I throw a party. I"M DEADLLY SERIOUS.

Sorry for barging in on the conversation but I completely agree that you should take a gander at other BIGGER things. For instance, "Like does this aura match my level?" ;-)D

But in seriousness, I do slightly missed the those days when moving up at 50 exp rank a day, it was a almost like a Salmon run. +4 at this stage niegh impossible in this honey mold.

Neither don't bash the shit out of their keyboards, but they do make effects that show them destroying stuff. Mostly fake, though.

But have a look at both videos and see what you think of them.

Black or brown woulda been just as inaccurate as gray, and far less cool. So I went with gray.

So what you're saying is that all ranking up before you get into the top 150 is equally easy... and all ranking up AFTER you get into the top 150 is equally hard?

Dude, you're ranked #90. It wasn't THAT long ago that I was ranked #90, and one thing I know for sure is this:

It took me a long time to get from #100 to #90.

It took me even longer to get from #90 to #80.

It took me even longer to get from #80 to #70.

And it's taking me even longer to get from #70 to #60.

Are you catching my drift here?

No, but you should realise that what you now consider slow going is going to feel super fast in about a year when you're ranked #75 or so and having a bitch of a time getting just to #74, let alone +4. #;-}>

Yeah, I've reached #251 this very morning and I'm only 10 points behind someone I actually recognise - Zendra. That would be both awesome and a little sad that I've knocked someone such as Zendra out of the top 250 experienced

Excuses, excuses. Most non-Americans on NG speak English better than the average NG BBS General-posting teenaged American spamwhore, so... yeah.

Actually, and I'm a bit embarassed to admit this, notice how I put a asterisk on the "mother language" part? Well, I was going to add the following phrase at the end of my post which would have cleared up things considerably:

*But, having lived in England for no less than four years, I guess that really isn'y a excuse.

So, yeah. I'm guessing a public humiliation is coming, right?

<curses his failing memory>

Well it is, obviously a coincidence, but a curious (as I said, can't remeber when this sort of thing happend last) and happy one (+4 ranks = <insert smiley face here>).
I'm sure it happened at some point in the 100-150 range for ya.

It may have happend, sure, but even then it'll probably have happend, what once? Maybe twice. That's pretty rare in my book. In any case, see below.

So what you're saying is that all ranking up before you get into the top 150 is equally easy... and all ranking up AFTER you get into the top 150 is equally hard?

No that's nothing like what I said and I have to be completly honest with you, I have no idea how you infered what I wrote meant that. X_X

Dude, you're ranked #90. It wasn't THAT long ago that I was ranked #90, and one thing I know for sure is this:

It took me a long time to get from #100 to #90.

It took me even longer to get from #90 to #80.

It took me even longer to get from #80 to #70.

And it's taking me even longer to get from #70 to #60.

Are you catching my drift here?

Well, I could be all sarcastic and say something like "You don't say, captain obvious", but I don't want to needles antagonize you.

No, but you should realise that what you now consider slow going is going to feel super fast in about a year when you're ranked #75 or so and having a bitch of a time getting just to #74, let alone +4. #;-}>

I'm perfectly aware of all you're saying. I honestly feel this isn't an argument, since I agree with pretty much everything you said... I wasn't trying to make a point with my post, I was just trying to point out a fact that I belived was pretty interesting coincidence at the time (and I still do, since, as I said, I've gotten pretty used to slowly ranking up). That's it. Maybe I expressed myself poorly (as usual, <sigh>) for which I apologize, but that's all there is.

In all sincerity, this is all a bit pointless.
