Long server name = screen stretch

Post by Phytotron » Sat Feb 19, 2011 12:36 am

Grr. First some fool does it with a screenname, now some other fool does it with the server name.

It's hosted on one of Luke-Jr's servers.

I assume related (though I could of course be wrong), and possibly useful (in at least contacting and asking him to not to do that), I saw this individual in the server browser (Cheers server):

I don't think you should have to patch the forum. I'm thinking server names of that length should be prohibited. It's not like they'll fully display in the server browser, anyway.

If you are pointing towards that individual's login @forums, that is because, well explained by Tank/Z-Man in some post long ago, about the servers translating forum login symbols blah blah and it makes funny stuff.

...

"Related," as in, it might be the same person responsible for the server (though, as I noted, I could be wrong). I'm already aware of what you're referring to. Go away.

I've noticed some are actually a little too short now. For example, Adventures of TRON >> Adva:

Advalorem? Advance, advanced, advancement, advantage, advantageous? Advair? What could it be?!

And what about |FA| Black Tar! - Medium to High R

Raconteur? Rainbow? Regurgitate? Robotron: 2084? Rugby? Rutabaga!?!

On a somewhat related note, I've noticed that Cheers hasn't been displayed in quite a bit, since Phytotron's screenshot anyways, despite the amount of people that were in the server. Has anybody else seen it on there since and I am merely appearing with poor timing?

Wow. WHOOOOOOOSH!

That's the sound of a joke going right over your head. Or, for visual representation, since you kids seem to understand these better:

Now, this is where he makes some "clever retort" about how he knew that and he was joking too.
