Well Sonic Retro wont be usable for me for next 2 weeks. Fucking fantastic...

I must say, though I did idly speculate in staff chat before this went live as to how long it'd be before the whining about a single day's worth of forum fun started, I was expecting it to be somewhat more than a single hour before it started...

Welcome to the meritocracy: you don't deserve a usable forum unless you have the knowledge to guess the keyword.

Figured it out, jeez that took a minute. I wouldn't mind Cinossu if I had a computer that could keep up with your surprises, but unfortunately I have a POS and Retro's antics cause it to seize up bad.

You guys don't know a real Halloween scare until you try to leave three tabs of this beast running at once. :v:

Question; do you have iframes disabled entirely in your browser(s)? As that's how this thing works and keeps playing music/sounds "across pages".


I was wondering how you did that. It's a neat trick.

Maybe next year you could give a code that makes baby noises play instead of whatever other song is playing, and the real code is buried in a hint. That would sure cheese people off!

A "Go To Mobile Site" button somewhere at the bottom of the forum's page probably wouldn't hurt, though.

Well, this one is particularly annoying.


Emerald hunting was fun, didn't really interfere with general forum browsing, and could be turned off at the click of a button.

The random disco stuff usually only affects the page (or the topic, in some cases). It goes away when you visit a different topic.

This one affects the site globally, and continually interrupts the forum experience by entirely flipping the page (and worse, not moving the scrollbar back to the post you were looking at (and even worse, not jumping to a new post when you click the new post indicator)), while not having an obvious way to stop it from happening (requires finding the topic, which is already hard enough with the page flipping every few seconds, and then randomly guessing the phrase (luckily it's one of the famous ones), or alternatively editing the URL).

I think there's some justification to the complaints this time.

I wish it worked on my computer instead of being stuck on the loading screen. :( Might be my net though since its been stormy all day?

I've come up with an extremely simple solution for anyone who's having trouble with this or just hates it for whatever reason: take a day off from the forum. It's literally just for one day. Or, if you really don't want to do that, your other options are to either figure out the code to disable the shenanigans, or to view the forum on a mobile device. It's not as though there's no way around this, or that this is going to be a permanent thing...

You say that like last year's Hallowe'en thing wasn't around for 362 days. :v:
