Just Found This on Reddit: Interesting?

Post by Great_Mage_Atari »

Just another day browsing reddit when I stumble across this. Just thought it was funny that Wesnoth made it to reddit. Any comments/ thoughts?

I don't see the point. It's an image called "You know you're alone when" And it has two guys talking about Tintin? From the avatar I can guess the first person is Frogger5.


I guess the main thing is...what's so funny about that image? lol

Their avatars are rather familiar. First guy I'm not sure about, but it looks like a Wesnoth sprite. Second guy either is Boldek, or somebody using the same avatar.

Before more people start to speculate about this: Yes, it is from the Wesnoth forums. The first is Frogger5, the second Boldek. Link to the thread: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php ... 80#p516980

It's kind of creepy in a way to think that someone takes pictures of your posts and then puts them up on a website somewhere. I guess I didn't get the joke though.
Guys I never thought I'd come back to this forum after 8 years this is wild

Not sure why the person who took that screenshot found it so amusing...:?

Because it's reddit. They find absolutely anything amusing. I made an account a few weeks ago to prove just that to a poor karma-addicted friend. In 24 hours with nothing but some incredibly lame puns, I was only 100 points less than he'd had with all his hard work making things that were actually cool. They even "upvoted" my post that was - at the same time - another incredibly lame pun AND a satire of how magpie-ish they were for giving my other two posts so many points.

It's basically an imageboard. They pretend not to be, but they are.

And that pompous title on their homepage... "front page of the internet". Ugh.

Ouch. I've posted some there, though without much success - mine were all serious, though...

Funny that lame puns got that much attention. :P Puns do rock, though.
