Gotcha! Smiley I knew it from the very start that it was a BIG JOKE.
though Thymus is so smart and creative doing this stuff. Cool

That was great I mean we all fooled by theymos and it's not impossible because we always take seriously whatever theymos implemented. I really thought this will be another requirements to rank up because actually that's too many to meet. Grin

He really catch us tho.

After briefly making it up in my head consulting my most revered texts, it is clear to me that the humourless shitposters are of the sanguine temperament - enjoy being part of a crowd (megathreads), enthusiastic and outgoing (constantly spamming), boisterous, and have a hard time relaxing. The are certainly not choleric (independent, logical), melancholic (thoughtful, introverted) or phlegmatic (quiet, sympathetic).

As we all know, the sanguine temperament is linked closely to the blood humour, which is also warm and moist. It seems logical, then, that the best treatment for these humourless shitposters, is either complete derision with cold, dry sarcasm, or bloodletting, perhaps of their entire blood volume. I will begin organising a randomised control trial immediately.



Honestly, I did wonder about about in some way locally tagging all the people who did not get the joke for my own benefit - not to say they are untrustworthy per se, just that they are colossally dense.

I also called his local police when he did that, but they basically blew me off. Did you actually convince them to visit him?

Surprised nobody pointed out the pointless bit shifting in that equation Wink

I did write it that way in part to be more confusing, but it's not pointless; 1<<10 is 2^10. It restricts the result to the 10-bit space of the game-of-life board.

Yes, theymos. Taxing my memory, either I called the Texas PD to follow up or they contacted me shortly thereafter to let me know all is well. I say taxing my memory because I may have the particulars mixed up with another suicide episode on this board where I was able to call the person in question's local PD where it may have been that case were follow-up was made (if not both).

Speaking of Atlas, he called me close to two years ago from Australia just to say hey. Just small talk during the convo.

A lot of users now are laughing not because it is an april fools prank but the burdens were not true. I shocked also when I noticed that the new rank system are suddenly gone to the thread I am reading.
A while ago, I am thinking on what are the combination numbers to rank up. I thought also that there are algorithms used in order to calculate the new rank requirements till I came to the point that I will not rank up anymore. But then, I am very thankful that it is just a prank. A discouraging ranking system turns to a joke! Those who complained, you may now celebrate!
P.S. It might be prank as of now, but it may come true in the near future.
Many users were commenting yesterday and though claiming it to be a joke but I was seeing a fear behind their statements.  A new tough measure to pass for higher ranking.  Haa haa but many were showing them to be normal but in reality they were not.
I was happy with new system and took it seriously.  I was seeing it as opportunity to rank up.  But  Grin  such a big joke.

I hereby propose the addition of a new Humour score.  Unlike activity and merit points, humour points can be lost for humourlessness, literal-mindedness, broken sarcasm detectors, inability to grasp satire, or employment at a humourless alphabet-soup agency.

Humour will not affect rank.  However, those with zero or negative humour scores shall have their signatures displayed upside-down and backwards.  Also, such persons should carry a warning beneath their usernames:  “Jest with extreme caution.”

This is a serious idea.  @theymos, please implement it!

I was surprised (and laughing) at how many people took this seriously. I thought that this was way more obvious than last year, but I guess not.

A paid sarcasm shill once warned me about this sort of thing.



P.S., Dr. Cerimon shall must needs advise on how best to program the forum software to distinguish between good and ill humours.

Ironic that nullius' last post was on April 1st in this thread.

'Tis interesting.
I did try to bait him for a response with my *cough*alia*cough* comment, but alas, no response.  Sad

I ain't missing you, nullius
..... or am I?  Huh

If people have sent sMerits to theymos to reward him for the quality of the joke, then why not. We could argue that generally it makes zero sense to send sMerits to theymos, since he is the top sMerits creator and as such the very one in the forum who absolutely doesn't need to receive them

That's how poorly people around here think of shitposters and of the typical quality of posts in general--they'd rather give merits to someone who absolutely does not need them than to garbage shitposters.  While I certainly don't agree with that (nor would I give Theymos or Satoshi merits), I can understand the frustration involved.  It's a total waste of sMerits and there certainly are people more in need of merits who make posts good enough to earn them. 

Your comments above just smack of juvenile jealousy, however.  You're both going on ignore.

+1 for the post @The Pharmacist.

All the juniors, and newbies who complain about the current system, (Which I don't really like either), could be far more productive by trying to create entertaining, informative, or otherwise valuable content, instead of whining about "why wasn't my post chosen?".

We don't need more posts, here. We need more quality posts.

To the guys complaining about nobody sending merit: I send merit.
When I have it, and see people with posts that deserve it.
But I'll never send to someone who whines in comment sections about how they are so much more worthy than someone else who did get merit.

You want merit? Go write something meritable.
Rank is a privilege, not a right. You have to earn it.
