Huffing Boing Boing

I don’t know of any way to prevent people from multiple likes or just dropping in to like something. The best we can do is tell them blatantly that’s not how the game works.

Hey @waetherman - what about changing the thread title to include basic instructions against over-voting? Something like “Huffing BB: Vote only if you post. One each per day.” Then you can change the main thread description to reflect updated rules below that. Any help in that suggestion?

That’s not the only problem. Polling really doesn’t seem to work as Discourse has it set up because you can’t use it in an existing thread. Each poll is a new thread - so it redirects the game to multiple threads (and this isn’t a scavenger game) while forcing responsibility on people. Neither of those is good.

The reason I suggested one separate (but similarly named) thread for all winner posts using “likes” is so it’d get recorded by whoever went looking for it around the time it was supposed to be voting closed (currently set to 9AM EST). The faster the recording gets done, the better chance we won’t have extra “likes” just dropped on.

I think, at the least, it makes sense for people to date their posts that are entries. It allows us to match up posts to a winner list.

I thought linking to the poll from the main thread was a decent workaround to the inline polling issue as it kept a reference in the main thread.

Aside from the responsibility of opening and closing the polls, which I referred to already, I’m not sure what other responsibility is being “forced” on anyone. Clicking on a link? You don’t happen to do UI design for a living do you? :slight_smile: In any case, polling as is doesn’t seem to work. I’ll let you all figure out the rules and just keep playing.

I was just agreeing with that (in four words). You really didn’t need a paragraph.

Apologies. I read:

That’s not the only problem

as an indication that the words following were to be an enumeration of other problems. I didn’t expect there to be an agreement imbedded in the middle of a sentence.

Is that appropriately concise and terse?

edit to remove some snark.

Imagine, if you will,

a community of socialist-minded,

liberty-lovin’, anarchists,

en-locked in a feud

over the rules

designed to determine

who is the cleverest among them.

On a daily basis.


Wait, there’s rules? I’m only here for the lulz.

Hit and run suspect to victim: “I will fucking kill you!”

Which might as well be a real article, so I fail at that, too. :crying_cat_face:

Much better. I’d be anti-pot too if I were Ground Zero for an attack of the munchies.


@funruly - ya kinda missed the point. There was no “feud”.

Hey guys - I shouldn’t have to say this, but . . . I’m not terribly concerned about people voting from other places or anything else. (I’m here for the lulz, too.)

All I ever was doing - all along - was just offering solutions to commented problems after that was directly requested by the GM.

What just happened above was someone misreading someone else’s comment, and we’re now all cool. After it got resolved someone not in the conversation decided to make a snarky comment about said conversation. (I’m the one “like” on Tropo’s last comment. I only said anything about the other comment because there was an obvious miscommunication.)

Please if you have any suggestions about running this game - offer them.


A’right. Fuck the game. Let’s just go for them lulz. Let’s just making it the longest running game in BB history!


Sorry, but @Donald_Petersen has a pretty good lead!


This pleases me. I find it pleasing!


No chance.

We’re still playing Badass Dragons of the Wasteland.



Is it OK to pee in John Kerry’s “Hideous Lantern Jaw?”


The future isn’t written. It can be changed. You know that. Anyone can make their future whatever they want it to be…

Also, @Donald_Peterson has a hideous lantern jaw. Just sayin’.

While there may not have been an actual feud, I find funruly’s interpretation amusing.


Trust me, catgrin, if I ever decide to troll you or to engage you in a substantive debate I know I will need stronger argumentation than a weak meta-joke on a joke thread.
