North Korea: still hilarious

it was bad in the first place, and especially in the light of recent events

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 21:46 (one year ago) Permalink

serious question - why do people care about the title? it's obv pretty dark considering but who are we afraid we're going to offend? north koreans?

i would like to avoid the gutwrenching irony of the title if things take a turn for the worse.

also to turn this around, why do people care about keeping the title? they must, because several people have complained and no one every does anything. who cares? why not change it just to shut me up?

North Korea: funny as a heart attack

do we have to have a discussion about this? it's a stupid fucking title.

just start a new thread

like if people hate the title of the thread so much why do they keep bumping it

crüt, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 23:08 (one year ago) Permalink

which is easier

A - asking everyone to stop bumping the main north korea thread and to instead bump one of the many other threads to total silence because no one has them bookmarked

B - just change the fucking title, why is this even an issue

C - just make me a mod like i've asked several times, i don't really have beef with anyone, all i do is sit around and look at ilx all day, and it would be my fucking pleasure to change a stupid ass thread title when asked to do it

North Korea: choice

u could link the new thread link in the main thread and ask ppl to go there

What are the arguments against having the title changed? Is it for 'history' sake? Clinging to the irony of "still hilarious"? Title change could set a 'precedent' where ilxors flood mods demanding thousands of threads having the title changed? Idgi.

If changing the title decreases the odds of a nuclear strike by even as little as 5% then I still think we should do it

wait KJU posts here? what's his screenname

Otm. If ILX mods won't allow a thread title change North Korea basically has this in the bag.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 23:27 (one year ago) Permalink

I don't think anyone is against it just some ppl don't care and it seems like the mods are among those ppl?

Mordy, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 23:29 (one year ago) Permalink

could maybe wait for one of them to see it and weigh in

Neanderthal, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 23:30 (one year ago) Permalink

It would appear so.

Seems like the tiniest of efforts to adjust the ~ilx experience~ for one of ilx' most esteemed users, who takes genuine issue with the title, to just backspace the words "still hilarious". But mods might hold other, more mysterious principles in higher regard.

Likeliest case is that a mod hasn't noticed the request yet.

Thought crut was a mod, my bad

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 23:40 (one year ago) Permalink

Personally I prefer to keep old titles, but there seems to be enough of a push for change here, so I've changed it for you.

mod, Tuesday, 8 August 2017 23:44 (one year ago) Permalink

thank you mod!

hopefully we will all learn to live despite the change of title. things will never quite be the same, but i suppose we will all muddle through it somehow

i used to be a board mod of a super-top-secret hidden borad but got my powers revoked after I unlocked a thread that another mod had locked

crüt, Wednesday, 9 August 2017 00:29 (one year ago) Permalink

We should now keep bumping this thread until a mod locks it from sheer irritation.

How time flies... Crut for borad mod imho.

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 9 August 2017 00:32 (one year ago) Permalink

Let's discuss the pros and cons of that proposal and how it might affect the North Korea thread title.
