Bloopers


  • Pitcrew

    I once was mid scene and had just posed. Three minutes later after running some commands that scrolled the scene out of view, I forgot I was mid a scene and left to go RP elsewhere with people I noticed on hangouts. Got a page 5 minutes later: "?"

    "Sorry! I totally forgot we were scening!"


  • Pitcrew

    I used to look for a scene around 10-11 PM on Friday and then promptly fall asleep 4-10 poses in. Just ask @ILuvGrumpyCat, who had so much patience with me, holy shit.



  • Mavved a TS pose.

    In the middle of a staff meeting.

    About banning TS.

    Classic.

    @coin I have done that many times at various points, though mine was of the "I need to get the baby/toddler back asleep, brb" variety. :)

    I just... you know... people take like ten minutes to pose.

    And my bed is RIGHT THERE behind me. "I'll just lie down briefly, then get up and pose."

    "Ah, shit, it's five am."



  • @coin I have a very particular set of skills...

    I've also fallen for the 'sure it's nearly midnight but I can get in a quick scenzzzz'



  • Common one, I'm sure...

    Paging someone to complain/comment about a third person and paged that third person.

    Over twenty years ago now, but I was one part of the "welcome committee" on a superhero game. Tasked with paging guests/brand new people to answer questions, tell them about the game, encourage them to come play.

    Maved a guest an extremely graphic TS pose.

    @2mspris "... that said, welcome to the game!"

    Mine: Late 90's, a WoT MUD I staffed on was using a 'democratic system' to make decisions. That meant there wasn't really anyone in charge per se, anything was voted on by a committee, and the politics were pretty intense.

    It had led to these long meetings - we're talking 4-5 hours each - to determine everything, which were spammy and boring as hell. Anyway, one of my RP partners at the time and I were TSing over pages while waiting for the next vote.

    ... And she maved, posing it into the room instead of sending it in a page to me. Did I mention her RL husband was the meeting's chairman?

    There was a long silence afterwards, like 30 seconds of it while people read what was on their screens to make sure they saw it right... and then everything devolved into pure chaos.

    Yeah.



  • I have yet to mav a TS pose to anyone. I have been in the hobby since... 1996? Yeah.

    It does not matter that I could count the number of times I've TSed even to an ftb point over the past 2 years on the fingers of one hand and still have the thumb left over, this is a horror long overdue and the Sword of Damocles feel is real, y'all.

    I live in terror of the shit fate is storing up for me on this front. Whenever that bomb drops, it might level Tokyo Tower. :/

    Two points:

    • I can't think of anything more welcoming.
    • Hurr hurr, you said "come play."

    Once I did a respec for someone (this involved wiping of the old +sheet. Then handstatting EVERYTHING back on to them based on the new attributes/merits/skills/powers they selected. It was a spend of about 900 xp (I remember it was less than 1000).

    It was the wrong PC. Their names were off by one or two letters. :(

    Luckily I has done an xp spend for this poor guy an hour or so previously so I had a copy of his old sheet.



  • Once I used the wrong syntax for the parent() function, and instead of querying to find out which objects in the database were parented to the comlink object, I accidentally re-parented every single object in the database to the comlink object.

    Thank goodness for backups.



  • @faraday Oh man, I recall doing something similar once. Every bridge console on every ASpace ship was set to control one particular ship... except the ones on the ship itself.



  • @tinuviel Deets. Also that's a good way to play it off: "hahahahahahaguys I'm just being ironic"



  • @sincerely Oh there's no way I could pass it off like that, unfortunately. It was in my... verbose and purple prosiest of eras. Hawt hawt gay secks.



  • I remember the first time I ever 'bloopered'. Was not long after I started mushing and was hanging out on a mu*'s PG area (was a game that allowed minors since it was mostly a social mu*). I was having some... fun with someone in pages while chatting with people in the PG room and... uhm, accidentally fat fingered the page command. So instead of 'p' I typed 'po' by mistake. Dropped a rather raunchy pose in the room, while a minor and the head wiz was there. Thankfully the aforementioned head wiz was cool, and it was passed off as the accident it was, but holy shit was I mortified!

    Well the guest in question did immediately make themself a PC bit and joined the game. The person that the pose was meant for had way too much fun with that for the rest of the time I was on that game, every time a new person showed up they encouraged them to page me.

    I have done the 'fallen asleep during scenes' before.
    I have also wandered off during scenes. ADD is real. I don't really cotton to the whole 'hee hee bio break!' OOC comments 'cause, c'mon y'all, errbody's gotta pee sometimes!
    ...problem is that I will be like: 'well, lemme go put this stuff in the sink before I sit back down.'

    '...eh, I might as well load the dishwasher while I'm at it, I bet it's not my pose yet. Everyone's been slow.'
    'Shit, I haven't unloaded the dishwasher.'
    And then suddenly my need to clean the whole kitchen is triggered.
    Which might turn into a need to clean the floors.
    Which turns into a need to clean the whole living room.
    And if I'm at it, I might as well vacuum the bedroom.
    And if I have to do that, I need to clean the rest of the bedroom.

    So suddenly it's a few hours later and- <gestures>

    As for pose bloopers, I've never mispaged/posed a TS pose, but there was one once sent to an OOC room of which I was the intended target. But my name was not in it. >.> Thank god for small favors! Still mildly terrifying.

    I have had the slew of briefly-horrifying-but-later-hilarious typos. Like pees instead of peers. That one's always great. Or shit instead of shirt ('takes her shit off' is always fun after the initial "oh god no I didn't mean...").
