What will our lovely staff and fellows think of this time? Probably something amazing, that will totally not cause confusion :sweet:. I saw some names converted into symbols, Is that it?

Well, I noticed that I Scream Clone, SI-mocs, and CorneliusMurdock, and Skalldyr have name changes.

EDIT: Added CorneliusMurdock

EDIT 2: All the name changes look like part of a math equation. There's - symbols, + symbols, = symbols, and numbers.

Cornelius's Superman avatar is a brick-built Superman now, too.

MetroID has joined in as well.  Maybe something to do with architecture?

May be slightly depressed due to learning that Shortpacked! is ending in a year. :,-(

The Avatars were changed to look like Minecraft.
Perhaps this could explain the username changes, too.

I'm assuming all of you are just playing dumb, because you three all have the minecraft-esque avatars and the name changes.

EDIT: What's up with Christmas being changed to Arbor Day when I try to post this?

EDIT 2: You can no longer post the words Arpil Floos Day if you spell it correctly.

Mimecraft, what is that?  And don't try to pull something with the "your avatar is like that, too" because mine's still Superman and has been for a few weeks.

The word Lgeo, when spelled correctly, comes out as "poop stockings".

NO! I typed "arpil floos dya" (rearrange those letters) and it was changed to "Arbor Day".
