There is nothing high-context about Thad's pet board. It's as low-context as you can get.

Guild --

This is not my board.  You still can't see my board.

Where's the Pyo Shop so I can buy a Thadboard Pass?

I think the Thadboard may just be a mirror universe of this board, only all the grammar is correct, and trolls are replaced with Daleks.

...I like the new names quite a bit less than Shark's names (with the possible exception of this board), but his point about not complaining unless I have something to contribute is well-taken.  (I DID contribute a Tron quote.)  I move that the admins just keep changing the names each according to his whim until we get some we like.

Would it be possible to setup a script that cycles the names of the boards randomly everyday?

You know, I hate you, but that is quite the awesome idea.

Or how about this:
Sharkey's Boards
         Sharkey's Board for Games
         Sharkey's Board for Not-Games
         Sharkey's Board for People who are not Sharkey
         Sharkey's Board for important stuff
         Sharkey's Board for Sharkey

How about we use the new names that everybody likes for about a week before we start rearranging them again?

Or go full-hog and rename them all every day.  If you're going to fuck something up, fuck it up right.

That suggestion has been made once before already. I think we should avoid what happened when the Pyo boards became the Mother boards (it looked like some kind of fansite).

Well no I'm not saying make them look like Super Mario World.

But to make them look like "If the 90s had the internet of today" would be good for a chuckle.

And a shitty Geocities layout that makes you cringe yet is oh so awesome because it's got a scrolling gif of Goku fighting Cell all down the page?  ::D:

Who said everyone likes the new names?  I think "All you can do is watch" is inaccurate since you don't really watch books or music.  "The world beyond the screen" is pretty vague and might apply to Real Life or Real World.  I'm not even gonna comment about "High-Context Discourse".
