Still, it is your name, and the logo at the top of the page is pretty cool, so I thought I'd ask. I don't really care that much, though; just making an observation.

Actually, I for one like the idea of making that hand into the favicon.

In fact, I'm going to bring it up at the ol' SIBHoD right now.

EDIT: Apparently I already brought it up a couple of weeks ago. I don't remember that.

That Phanto will be the place's favicon until Web 3.0 comes around and every website is three-dimensional and doesn't look like crap. Then every bit of content there will be on the surface of a 5-billion polygon, ray-traced, and normal-mapped Phanto.

Ehh, it's allright I guess, I just wish there was a little more understanding and explanation from the higher-ups instead of just "hey ace GTFO". Considering all the time and effort I put into the community and getting to know all the users (3 years, at least), that kinda hurt.

Our favicon seems to be gone right now but it was Phanto because that's just a little running gag from the forum. The black hand doesn't really correspond to anything, like they said, and the logo (cool, I agree), can be seen on the top of any page anyway.

But that's okay, I can respect your opinion. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

May I introduce you to my friend the dictionary. (You might also look up sense while you're there.)

Hey cool, it really came back. I began wondering if you had to rewrite the thread by hand. ;)
Seriously though, I hope the forum will remain open and working now for the rest of the year. I missed it. :((

That's the plan. Although it was never the plan to stay down as long as we did. Sometimes things don't work out how we'd like.

I'm not exactly sure what went on here, and not interested in drama. I've got other places to chat and what not. Homestar for me is about Homestar . . . so at least for me, as long as we're allowed to talk about Homestar here, this place is cool.

I'd suggest you look up kindness, politeness, and subtlety while we're talking about dictionaries.

My post was all of those things.

Kind: I looked up the word and linked to it for him.
Polite: "May I introduce you..."
Subtle: My point that it would take less time (and is a better practice) to look up the word himself rather than post on a forum.

Yes, because implying that Mike lacks sense is both kind and polite. Personally, I think what you said was quite condescending.

Actually, he wasn't saying he lacked sense.
Mike used "sense" in place of "since".

For the record, though, you do come off as condescending sometimes. I think it's due to the fact that almost everything typed looks like that.

Erm, I was never talking about Mike; I was talking to Im Not homsar. I never said he didn't have sense; I implied he should spell the word sense (which was in fact the correct word, not since) thus. Whether something comes across as condescending is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose, but my suggestion that Im Not homsar should look up a word he is unfamiliar with was not intended maliciously and was hardly out of place.

Maybe it wasn't intended to be malicious, but if three of us think you were intending to be malicious that says something.

Yes, but it says as much or more about you than it does about me.

I honestly had no idea that was I word. I've never heard it used like that. Only when you're talking about... Sun Dried raisins and stuff.

See, that's exactly why DC's suggestion was a good idea. Looking things up in a dictionary can tell you what he means and improve your vocabulary. Incidentally, for raisins it would be spelt differently ("sun-dried" rather than "sundry").

You often hear it in the (redundant) phrase various and sundry.

Now that we've fully explored a vocabulary word that was used in reply to a post that technically didn't even apply to the purpose of this thread, and since what needed to be said with respect to the original topic has been said, I think this thread has run its course.
