Title Archive (seriously, don't edit this title)

#Don’t edit this title; there’s a game devoted just to doing that.

This thread will be a partial archive of edits to that one.

Continuing the discussion from SRSLY YOU GUYS ARE ALL A**HOLES:

I grabbed the following list by going to my notifications, opening page-inspector, selecting the element that held the notifications, copied the innerHTML, then edited it down with regexes.
Perhaps somebody could automate this, but I’m the only non-admin who has access to my own notifications.
This is list includes some duplicates, and some other mistakenly captured activity (should be scrubbed better once automated and perfected).

I grabbed the following list by going to my notifications, opening page-inspector, selecting the element that held the notifications, copied the innerHTML and saved that to a file.
I now have a little node.js app that processes that file and outputs markdown/Discourse code.

More technical notes plus code

This could have been crowdsourced, but noo͘o҉oo0o͊ͭ͂̓, someone on the business-side had to make this policy:

Seeing how people are hacking this now, the following fork would be a cool derivative


  1. You play it by editing the title of the thread.
  1. You are only entitled to edit by solving the joke/riddle in the title, and posting the riddle (screenshot or copypasta) and your solution as a response. This solution need not be the one that the riddler had in mind, so long as you are sufficiently clever.
  2. You replace the joke/riddle in the title with your own.
  1. The community is welcome to post alternative solutions/interpretations of any joke/riddle. If they are funnier or more correct, you lose whuffie.

Credit for inspiration due to the asshole who posted “My Hovercraft is Full of Eels” in Vietnamese.

Can’t remember my last title, so it will not be added to the archive.
Schadenfreude. Circus reference. Icelandic lingo.

finally, my work has been recognized.


And here I’d love to present myself as the self-important piggie I know myself to be (on the inside at least), but I find that sometime in the past few weeks I lost my Elitist Swine Regular status.

Boo. (sob)

Then the communication/game would revert to the comments. It’s really the only way to differ that post from any other. Freeing, evanescent titles that disappear like the dew.

Best way to unclog those tubes.


I’ll take your word for it since it says “regular” right by your name.


It’s nice to be regular.


See what I mean? Is it any wonder my game titles are so abusive? The next one will probably be something like “Why don’t you f#@&!#g die already, you smelly bastards” and revolve around story problems.


Some of the titles are killing me. In a good way, of course.

I kinda like the ephemeral nature of it. I know I’m missing some bits here and there, but it’s a treat to catch the ones I can.


Awwww, who posted about Justin the quahog? That was sweet.

Does @OtherMichael have a full list of titles?
