.....slowly the doorknob turns, the basement door creaks open, a hesitant voice says "...hello?".....
He steps into the familiar, yet un-familiar surroundings. He sees the fire is still going. (He goes over and grabs a fire poker and pushes some wandering coals back in. He adds a log from the 'Never Empty' log pile to fire for good measure.) He notices how long The Sacred Hall Of Archives has gotten. ("One day I really should do the blitz walk.") He finds his old rock and sees some M&M's next to it. ("I wonder if these are stale M&M's? Let me try a couple... **bleah** ... Yup, they're stale. [He pelts himself with a handful.])
He takes his seat and feels the weight of this last month slide aside.
He thinks about the folks still keeping the place going (The Wowderfallness of Your OTTERness is beyond Wordiness.). You keep the place going for us wandering tribes folk.
He thinks about the blitzers traveling the hallways right now. {{Keep Reading. The Future-Present That Is The Present-Present Awaits}} ("... one day ...")
He thinks about the Waiters and OTTERs he knew but hasn't seen the few times he lurks in. (buffygirl, BytEfLUSh, charlie_grumbles, HAL9000, lmjb1964, SBN, StratPlayer, TheMinim, TimeLurker and others.) He smiles at the warm memories those names bring. (No. He doesn't mean that the steady posters bring any less fond thoughts. Just the opposite, this is someplace with nothing but warm, fuzzies.)
He gets up and goes over to the picture wall. He places his latest doodling on it. ("Maybe some one will find it.")

I'm not sure a one-OTTer language would have much influence 6 generations from now. Though one word or two may slip into general usage. (That's valid for Swedish as well, I think.)

I'd just like to use this post to express how wonderful it's been to have OTTed with you all for more than a year. It's been said before and will be said again but this is a terrific community that I am inexpressibly grateful to be a part of. Reliving the first yip was a tremendously nostalgic and revealing experience, as we got to see how we've changed, individually and as a community, over the last 12 mips. I know for a fact that I'm very different than I was back then. And I can't wait to see where I go in a year. Everyone here deserves my heartfelt thanks for making this such a great place to hang out and have a good time.

Thanks.

There must be a sequel. Probably the GLR is already preparing it right now. He will announce it in the next weeks. Or months.
And if not, then somebody will make a sequel.

It's over. Again. :(

First run of Time: NP1-NP1254 (about 1254 newpages)
Second run of Time: NP1820-NP2041 (about 222 pages)

Yes, we're moving a lot slower these dips. But at this time last year, I thought we'd all be gone within weeks. Instead, we've had nearly eight hundred more pages, colored hundreds of frames, ottified countless othercomics and songs, and more delurkers and new blitzers have shown up. So I'd say we're doing pretty good. :)

Oh yes, we did. I updated my graph and we have been fairly stable the last months since the slowdown after The Sadness.

We are also approaching 500 dips of the OTT!

My story with 1190: "Time"

Postby Sustainabilizer » Sat Jul 26, 2014 9:04 pm UTC

When I encountered Time, the first thing I noticed was the JavaScript. (I have JavaScript switched off, so there was no image for me. Later this got fixed on xkcd.com.)

I did some computery stuff to get the image. I looked at it. It showed two people sitting on a beach. As it is not too unusual with xkcd, I didn't get the message. So I consulted explainxkcd. They didn't get it either. So I consulted the forum. They had already found out that the image changed.

From that moment on I had two places to check for xkcd news – the main page and some source for Time newpixes: the forum, explainxkcd, and later The Viewer.

But still noone really understood what was going on. I saw the thread evolve. People of very different ages, professions and interests joined their forces to investigate Time, forming the OTT.

From what I know of such diverse communities, I gave it a few days before it exploded in a big flame war. But it didn't. It remained one of the friedliest places I have ever seen in the Internet. And it was productive: It revealed the mysteries of Time to an extent I could barely believe, and it produced some outstanding fan-fiction.

Time **ded. I gave the community a few weeks to fade away. But it didn't. Some people basemented, but some others joined and/or delurked. So did I.

Thanks y'all for the OTT, the molpiest place in the Internet.

And many thanks, Randall, for creating xkcd and Time!

Ditto to all the thanks, both Randall and OTTers. This place is so molpish, friendly and unique, and I'm proud to have been a part of this magical pocket of the internet. While the post rate may ebb and flow, I see no reason for my time here to ever solidly end, and I hope to continue OTTing on into the future. (which I hear is pretty cool.)

A WILD *ND APPEARED

I cannot turn my feelings down
Beyond my means to turn my thoughts around
Expressed in every word I will ever speak
Brighter than all the stars combined
More than the waters, earth and sky
All that I wish and all that I dream
No creed on earth can replace or provide
In my darkest hour, the comfort I'd feel
Leading me to see I can be more than I expect of me
My beginning and my end
The first and last air that I breathe
More than the sum of everything that I will ever be

Edited 3 times because my lyric choices were too depressing at first

As we enter the epilogue, another epilogue poem, based on the Second Sequence of the Thirties as listed on mscha's page, ABDEBCEADEBCEACDABEADEBC.


Our Castle

So the raft drifted away
But we're still here treading water
Floating on a gentle sea
Dreaming of the long-lost castle

There'll never be one last and lonely otter
Without someone left to talk to

We watched from distant shores the rising castle
And in its shadow we began to play
Waiting for the promise of what might come to be

And still we thought it was about the castle
We'd analyze and criticize and break out a line-plotter
Keenly watching grains of sand and images we thought we knew
Accrue, what else were we to do about the castle?

Slowly we began to say
This is something new
Gradually we came to see
A sweetness to our disarray

And even if the raft moved on we still would have the water

No castle
Made from sand can be expected long to stay
But now there is a home from cobbled bits of "us" and "we"

It's not a real castle
But those are overrated; give us one down by the water
Made of posts, acquaintance, hopes and patience that we will pull through

Wowterful, BlitzGirl! And I wasn't gonna cry this time... Image

Speaking of the Epilogue, it will celebrate its first birthday in 4-and-a-bit nopix. I wonder if that will have any impact on it...
It might change patterns, but that's doubtful, that will probably happen in the new yearH. Or maybe it will e** after exactly one yip? Or ... who knows ... it could be a good opportunity for Time 2.0 to start.

It's a good thing explainxkcd didn't get it. I would never have come here if they had...

After the five epilogue frames, is oldpixbot going to retire to a nice beach somewhere?

Probably. It's already at a nice beach, so it doesn't even have to move. :D
(No, don't worry, it won't keep posting epilogue frames.)

Right, so, now that I've had my ice cream (a fair bit more than that smiley might suggest, mind), well, I couldn't have said it any better than ergman:

I may not have been here very long, and I missed the original run of Time, but my visit to the OTT around the Furious Doodling instantly drew me in to this community, and following t1i and the UNGs was very treeish. I've had an awesomeful Time here so far, and with the wowterful community and the balthaONGs to Wait for, I have no intention of leaving!

Image To Randall, and to the OTT and the OTTers, and to the future! May there be many yips of OTTing to come!
