I have just noticed that Greg's crown as King of the post castle is getting challenged by Timbo.
I wonder if it will be a race to 3000 posts :lol:
Well Chris maybe if you start spamming real hard you can push yourself from 3rd to 1st place
i bet greg is going to delete your posts if the volume start to rise
probably well 90% of my posts have a "LOL" in
i couldnt be arsed to read the thread, but greg, feel free to place "LOL " in relevant places.
That's a cheap way to get an extra post Tim
LOL it's on! (spam-free of course)
so many LOL's in one thread... soon the LOLcats will come and demand a royalty fee :lol:
oh and LOL
I wonder how often people use LOL for no reason... I think I almost only use it when I really laugh/chuckle/smile when reading whatever the other person wrote. Of course sometimes you just have to pretend that the other guy is extremely funny but other than that...
My problem is that I use … a lot, and unnecessary smileys (although the latter is slightly improving )
I quite like comedian Tim Minchins idea of using MAS instead, meaning Mildly Amused Smirk. His logic being that most people use LOL when actually they are just smirking in amusement.
I tried to bring it to the masses but people keep making me explain what it means which makes it a rather time consuming abbreviation.
I like MAS, I think we should try and get that to catch on, at least on DF!
I always find myself typing "lol" in pure silence, so not all that accurate!
Can't Greg just boost his numbers via the admin panel anyway?
I don't think I can... not that I've checked :angel:
Absolutely, it's far more accurate in my case anyway as I rarely find myself laughing out loud at the things I write or read online.
So how should we start this campaign to get MAS used as the favoured abbreviation for something humourous? Bearing in mind once it catches on on DF we'll have to expand our sights to the world! MAS
MAS are my initials
You can do it with phpbb forums.
So all you have to do is completely change the whole forum and you can cheat. Simples.
Separate names with a comma.
