    When ash said "Don't make one sentence posts" he didn't mean "Make two sentence posts."
    The moderators want useful thoughts. Thoughts that contribute to a reasonable discussion. Can we try to do that? Can we try to put a bit more THOUGHT into our posts?

    e: JESUS DICK. That image is just TERRIBLE quality! Blame imgur. :/

    While it is vital to promote more structured arguments and speculation, I don't see why we should be chastised for being succinct. If we can create valid input in two or three sentences, I see no reason why we should have to stretch it out any more than is necessary. An over-worded argument loses its impact as it wears thin. Not everything can or should be extended to or past the limit. I personally think my own argument would have been better if i had stopped after the second sentence, because now it looks like a piece of gum that has stretched so thin it is beginning to tear in the middle.

    This is why Dave is awesome.

    Because making Coffee is such a challenge for him.

    Also, what if there is text in the image? Like, if I've taken a wordless image and added two sentences to it (see my last post), is that included in the sentence count?
    I wouldn't post that image all on its own, of course, but if I had a single sentence and then an image with two sentences in it, is that okay?
    I think that this all comes down to a case-by-case basis, in the end. I'm reading the vast majority of this thread anyway, and if people have issues with another person's posting then flagging their post is a good way for the mods to find out!

    Also, Wrinkly knows what's going on.

    Re: Gamzee's Corpse Party

    On the subject of the "coffee machine", my guess is that Tavros's corpse is stuffed in there, and when Dave opens the machine it'll fall on top of him and he'll start flipping the fuck out.

    Either that, or it's just filled with smuppets.

    Also, does anyone think there's any chance of us seeing Aradia & Sollux in this intermission?

    I was working under the assumption that that thing some thought he was hiding in was a coffee machine, in which case he's soaking in coffee all day. A sugar high on top of that, on the other hand, certainly won't help matters. Now that I've gotten to thinking about this, I'm kind of hoping he bursts out of there at the end of the trip in a callback to Dave busting out of that pile of puppets.

    But if you hadn't extended your post you wouldn't have come up with that hilarious simile and that would just be terrible. Other than that I do agree with the sentiment; I usually try to express my thoughts in as few words as needed to get the point across. I doubt that Ash will worry too much about the letter of the law though. As long as the post itself is intelligent and thought provoking the number of words should matter little.

    Shit I feel like I used too many periods in this post, it all seems fractured. Bleh.

    Oh, it was simply that the post you quoted was about Gamzee actually hiding in the machine with Faygo. But I do believe that with the numbers of callbacks that have been done recently, one more certainly wouldn't hurt.

    Well, anyway, I've got to go, so don't talk about interesting stuff while I'm gone. Please? (<-is that kind of thing still allowed? Can we still say goodbye if there's some context in our posts?)

    Re: Gamzee's Corpse Party

    I would have a much higher post count if I actually hit submit everytime I wrote something. I try to put thought into my posts, but I do not have the gift for insight/verbosity that some of you do. Like Doom. For reals. Most of what I type ends up being three word reactions along the lines of "I agree with thon."
    So, if you see a random Homestuck-related quetion tacked onto the end of randomosity, tha is why.
    Do not even look in here it is a goshawful mess that I do not have the time or sanity to deal with.

    hes hiding IN the WHOREN PILE
    keep in ear open for honks

    Do two line jokes count? Because sometimes going beyond the scope of the punchline ruins the comedic mood, and jokes are a vital part of the thread as it maintains a certain level of light-heartedness and joviality.

    I could totally see Gamzee alchemizing a bunch of smuppets and then hiding them throughout the meteor just to mess with Dave and the others.

    Just imagine a walkaround flash as Dave where every chest you open is full of either smuppets or severed heads.

    tl;dr
    I know, that's true. But I've seen cases where people make seperate single-sentence responses to different people. Instead, you could respond to both people in the same post and conserve some space for other people.
    At times, I've decided not to go back and edit my post because I know that people aren't reading it anymore. Making a new post at the time would've meant more people would see it. That's a problem for sure, but I think the easiest way to do that is to simply have everybody okay with editing their old posts. That way, people would be more accustomed to going back and reading posts.

    I feel like I would be doing most of the flagging. And there are a lot of people who I don't think necessarily deserve to be "warned" for their posts. I feel like it would be sorta akin to ratting them out or something. And it's too common of a thing to actually tackle.
    Okay but I need to leave now so I'm gonna cut this post short. Outdoors stuff with the family.

    Couldn't a joke be accompanied by other things? Anyway, I'm not a rigid person. If it's amusing / accompanied by other things / a long enough joke or whatever (you get the idea) then it'll be fine! Just don't go overboard with terrible two-line jokes.

    I've been very tempted the last few posts to post something along the lines of
    "hello, I thought you should know I reacted thusly to your moderation rules

    thank you for your time and goodbye."

    I suppose you could say that I just did what I said I was merely tempted to do, forming some facade of a metaphorical bad post, when in reality, it's just a thinly veiled actual bad post pretending to be merely a parody of one.

    Don't you just hate it when fake bad is real bad?

    (also that chamber Dave is knocking on looks like one of those chambers people get in and are gassed and frozen in time... like in Futurama or Rocket Man.)
    (well damn, now i have actual content, whoops, damn you edit for ruining my metaphoically bad metaphoical post of terribleness)

    One day, you'll wake up around 2 p.m., and the first thing you'll do is flip open the laptop and log on to the forums. And you'll find open Arms welcoming you.

    Actually, I kinda find it odd that there is a potential that not even Karkat has been watching Gamzee. Gamzee is mental. You can't really leave someone alone like that.

    Thankfully Aurthour is dead and so is his ghost.

    Now we just have to deal with an army of his weird species.
    Jake must be pretty messed up living surrounded by all kinds of weird creatures like that.
    He might bring a few along into the medium.

    Any situation that ends with Dave buried in bulbous foam asses is a good one.

    Although him being buried beneath Aurthours would be pretty funny too.

    The question then is, is Gamzee hiding himself? Or has Karkles hidden him away for his own protection?

    Re: Gamzee's Corpse Party

    On Discussion:
    I'm curious as to what Gamzee has been doing over the past year, and why he only lets Karkat anywhere near him. Well maybe that second part is obvious because of the whole moirail thing, and the whole "Kanaya wants to chainsaw me in half", but still I do not think Rose, Terezi or Dave has a MAJOR beef against him, you think he would show their faces.
    I guess my main concern about it though is that I really have no particular clue or speculah on why Gamzee is doing what he's doing, or even his mental state at the moment. And I hate when I'm like that in comic because half of my enjoyment of homestuck comes from speculating and trying to guess what happens next.

    On the whole No More One Liners thing:
    I think a complete thought is more important than actually keeping track of sentences, because you can make a fairly good point in just one sentence, and you can make a fairy stupid and useless point in one sentence, it all really depends on how much thought is put into the post.
