You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

Yeah, I know it's the weekend, but in Edit your Profile!, BBaBB needs to be changed to "Closed Threads/BBaBB".

Nope. Normal procedure is to keep a closed thread on the main list for a little while (a week or so) in case people want to catch up. And it'll never be a site administration thread again. That's only for the active site admin threads.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

What DX said. The description on the profile page describes what folder the thread is in. If it's not in the Closed Folder (or the Site Admin folder), it's not going to say so.

"We are the Goon Squad and we're coming to town...Beep! Beep!" - David Bowie, "Fashion"

Where's the old thread? It's not in the closed threads link, so I'm just curious.

What is even happening?

Like DX said, it doesn't get moved to closed right away - it's in the main thread list.

It really should be named "++ Buffistas Building a Better Board".

Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

Yeah. But I think fewer people are familiar with that syntax.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

Also, I think it's more important to have the basic thread name first than to have it be compilable.

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

I think it's more important to have the basic thread name first than to have it be compilable.

That logic never worked on any of my CS profs. (Nor any of my compilers, for that matter)

I thought the whole idea was that it was supposed to be a riff off of the name "C++." t knows nothing about C syntax...
