FAQ [For the less clever, answers are inside]

Post by Edminster »

...the fuck?
Quintushalls thinks this format will be more accessible to fans of the comic. His life now depends on it, so give it your all!

So what's the format?
It's pretty easy. Instead of posting about a comic in one comforting behemoth of a thread, you instead only post about a comic in the thread designated for it.

What if there's no thread for the comic I want to discuss?
Then make one! Preferably with the comic's date in the title eg "2011 February 16 is surprisingly racist" or "Zach couldn't draw on 2008 March 22"

I don't have an account, can I still post?
Yup! Just be prepared to type the name "Ada Marie" and a username every time you want to post. It might be easier for you to register an account, though.

If you are still having difficulty, please contact me at retsnimdecorp on Google's mail service.

What do you mean by "inactive accounts will be purged on 1 June 2011"?

I think "inactive" means "postcount == 0" here.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

"Inactive" = "postcount strange looking penis".
Gotcha.

Edit: I actually just read the proposal for this new idea. For the record, I didn't start the second latest comic discussion thread because of the length of the thread, though it was due. I did it because there was some glitch in the thread (deleted posts or sommat?) that threw off the loading point on the screen (somewhat like how an image heavy thread sometimes does). Well, after 5 or more pages of dealing with that, it was getting really annoying. Hence the new thread.

Inactive accounts are ones with a postcount of 0.

What if they've only posted in New Outlandia?

They have a little over a week to remedy that, after which they become acceptable losses.

THAT'S the term I was looking for, but I couldn't for the life of me remember it. Thanks!

You should go by last login date instead of postcount. The people who post in this forum also have a postcount of zero, e.g. this person: http://www.smbc-comics.com/smbcforum/vi ... 60#p120260

That was an artifact of me copying the permissions from the Outlands. Postcount is now incremented here, and besides it's easier for me to clear out postcount 0 people than it is to pick a date and clear from there.
