I learned more about Taft today than I did in AP American History.
 
2014-04-02 01:06:24 AM
I'm not a fan.
/also no fun at parties...

Aw, are the filters disabled now? I'd almost be willing to pay an extra dollar a month to subscribe to a totally random set of filters on my TFD posts.
 
2014-04-02 01:23:53 AM
"Wombat" is such a great word.

Meh. No pranks in my office.

The think geek ones sucked this year too.
 
2014-04-02 01:53:31 AM
I did enjoy the random filters, like the one that took almost all the vowels out of a post I saw, though it unnerved me when I got pwned a couple of times with random changes.

Time Magazine has a list of some good pranks this year.

I hate that I waded through the hot mess that is the Infowars archives to find a story from 2004 that actually sort of came true to submit and it never went red or green. It just sat in limbo all day. It's a Goddamn conspiracy!
 
2014-04-02 03:17:39 AM
I never figured out any of the filters except the Taft and Coolidge ones. I was depressingly confused the entire day. It was very unsettling.
 
2014-04-02 03:18:22 AM
I never found out what wombat or vagina sombrero meant.
 
2014-04-02 03:23:14 AM

ransack.: I never found out what wombat or vagina sombrero meant.


Here's what I had:
filter = wombat
Ayn Rand = Stephanie Meyer
tacos = cubanos
mods = banmonkeys
admins = linkmonkeys
modmins = drunken studmonkeys

I never figured out the censored by NSA one.
 
2014-04-02 03:35:09 AM
LOL = Laughter OL. (Someone on the notnews mainpage asked if I was Meow)
BIE = WIE
Obama = Taft
I think, gun = vagina?
Not sure what was Coolidge.

make me some tea: We had awesome sushi.

[scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net image 850x637]


That looks good enough to eat! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY YOU.

HotWingAgenda: Here's what I had:
filter = wombat
Ayn Rand = Stephanie Meyer
tacos = cubanos
mods = banmonkeys
admins = linkmonkeys
modmins = drunken studmonkeys


penis = vagina  -> vagina = penis?
TL;DR = could you explain that further? -> or something similar

I don't know how the "[something]  I have a big weiner." thing was triggered, though I expect it was dependent on the XX:XX:?? variable on the post - the " space mattered, likely 00, 15, 30, and 45's.

Something stole many of my vowels, mostly the letter "i," as my post held much of that letter.  Mine was the post that Dance Party referenced.

E-Brake: HAPPY


Hey, you!  I hope the move went well; it's good to see you poking around.  By now, I expect you've had enough time to settle in, hang pictures, etc.

I did not submit this, but I thought I'd put it up for the liters to see.  The powers that be placed the "submitted by" bit in TotalFark Discussion threads.  The listed submitter changed upon every load of the page.  I don't know how the names were selected, they appeared to be UltraFarkers that post in TFD.

Felt nice to be included on that one, O powers that be - thanks.

Hey, you folks enjoying Fark lite... put out the five bucks one day.  The perks or TotalFark are pretty cool.

Aw, Spacey!  You missed the April Fool's hijinks!  On 4/1/XX, Fark likes to mix things up a little bit.  It's fun :)

Yeah, I remember.  That's why I avoided Fark yesterday.

The move went fantastically, thanks, we're mostly all settled in now.

433: penis = vagina


Aha that makes a lot more sense than what I thought, heh. Someone got filterowned with that and it seemed the word they'd used was "gun".
 
2014-04-02 04:42:16 AM
Check your calendar = wash your hair

That one got me once.

2014-04-02 06:28:35 AM
I liked the Meow Filter, Laughter OL.

Also, I don't know if my actual alt was ever listed in my profile under the "known alts" section. Though I was happy to learn I am actually ChipNASA.
 
2014-04-02 06:30:46 AM
Thank you, Fark, you never disappoint at this time of year.
 
2014-04-02 06:32:24 AM
I also see that the Total FARK logo came back from its break with a slight redesign.
 
2014-04-02 06:47:51 AM

Fatty McFatcheeks: Meh. No pranks in my office.

The think geek ones sucked this year too.


The IT guys at work somehow magicked up the print function on the photocopiers so that whenever you printed, all that came out was a photo of Hal labelled 'I'm sorry, Dave. I can't let you do that'.

I didn't think that was technically possible without a serious amount of alterations to the machine. I was impressed.
 
2014-04-02 07:10:42 AM
I loved it. Totes calling it totes farfar.

Wait is the filter fixed? Totes was getting filter pwned .

In the submission page there was an option for retro.  Some of the user submissions did go green.  Yours was missed for some reason.  Some had to be passed on because of broken links.  Some just didn't get seen.

Thanks for submitting though.
 
2014-04-02 07:54:22 AM
The whole thing, Tote far far, the known alts, the submitted by, they all made me smile while on the site.  Well done.
 
2014-04-02 08:01:38 AM
Was there something different about yesterday in TFD?
 
2014-04-02 08:05:35 AM
I had fun and that's all that counts.
 
2014-04-02 08:11:59 AM
WTF was Redacted by NSA - I think
 
2014-04-02 08:15:15 AM
The Star Trek filter was by far the best. I think that should be activated on special days in Trekdom. Gene Roddenberry and major characters birthdays, ship launch dates, major federation events and holidays. It will just show what both NGT and the rest of TFD knows. Star Trek is superior to the other one. Look into your heart. You know it to be true.

Rainbow logo? Why not something more manly?

I only got bit by one filter that I noticed. I wasn't really asking for WIE.

Totes Far Far, Out The Submitter

What the fark does that even mean?

Satan's Chocolate Starfish: Was there something different about yesterday in TFD?


It probably made sense. That's why it was unnerving.
 
2014-04-02 08:26:04 AM
I was a huge fan of Love a Marsupial day.  I enjoyed reading some Fark discussion with the full benefit of hindsight.
 
2014-04-02 08:30:30 AM

ZAZ: Rainbow logo? Why not something more manly?

That one got me too. I blamed it on my cold medicine at first. I was lucky no one obliged.
 
2014-04-02 08:32:08 AM
I think these filters should stay 24/7

2014-04-02 08:32:34 AM
These filters were more entertaining than the dialect filters of years past.

I support randomly permuting presidents' names in comments on a long term basis. At least when too close to "thanks" or "mission accomplished."

LOL : Laughter OL

That had people wondering if meow was using the wrong alt.
 
2014-04-02 08:32:42 AM
I thought it was awesome.  Thanks Unfreakable for letting us play.
 
2014-04-02 08:33:07 AM
I enjoyed the filters greatly.  Got blindsided by a few myself.

Also I noticed that a "Known alts" field had been added to the profiles, followed by one or more random Farker handles.  Wonder if anyone else noticed that.
 
2014-04-02 08:34:08 AM
Note to self: Sign up for TF on March 31 next year.

There was that and the submitted by thing in TF that was funny.

I thought yesterday was fun.

I know. I'm very insightful.
