For all that other drivel that seems to constantly spill out of your mouths.

Fleeting thoughts

Post by somitomi »

I know eventually this forum will develop its own identity distinct from the original (at least I hope so), but right now I just want to see some of the old familiar thread titles.

Now all I'm missing is subsilver_left.

Edit: and this marks my first edit on the brand new forum.

This forum was an unexpected surprise. I wonder how much we plan to make it like the old forum or make it completely new. Do we bring back all the old emotes or call it old news?

Was definitely not expecting this to suddenly appear, but I like it.

We have equivalents of them anyway. I don't think I mind the new designs.

Welcome everyone! This forum proves quantum mechanics - out of the quantum foam who knows what might appear?

Thoughts that disappear like something you thought you smelled that quickly went away - an evane-scent.

Or a hypothetical device for determining the parity of numbers by smell, the Even-o-scent.

Could be that it's a newer version of phpBB.

Nice to see you too, and see the familiar icons returning.

Hmm... we have even essence, odd essence, and permen essence, the three quark flavors of the universe that created this QB (quantum board) we are posting on. I wonder what the rest of the physics of posting is.

I can't seem to remember where I first found the original forums. Was it a link on explainxkcd?

Originally it was linked from the main xkcd page and then at some point the link to the forums was removed.
