And you think I wouldn't notice? ;)

Oh I can change my writing styles very easily :P I let loose most of the time and make constant typos haha but when it comes to something like college, I am a perfectionist :P

So you'd even get a Russian proxy server?

Oh I meant another person ;)

Oh, not gri? Good luck impersonating her writing style. Mind you, one claim of 'you're just not listening to me because you're a misogynist' and I'd probably be convinced.

This Bouncy BBC mod plus the word censor is giving me some ideas. Not just that, but using other BBC to turn things colors, sparkle, or whatever.

Try using the word censor to do the following:

Censored words: (left column)
r
l

Proper words: (right column)
w
w

Make sure you uncheck "Check only whole words."

This will turn all Rs and Ls into Ws.  Makes all the posts sound like Elmer Fudd.

lol.. I like this one.

I'm totally doing that. With a Bugs Bunny forum theme...

danielwmoore

Bugs Bunny forum theme... can't believe I didn't think of that.  Just be sure not to have problems with copyright infringement with the graphics. 

I'm thinking of perhaps just using a nice close-up "portrait" of Elmer Fudd in the upper left corner, and to the right, nice graphics that say, "Hewwo, Wewcome to ouw Fowum" or something.

I should break out the code I wrote a few years ago that would post-process the page, and rewriting all the content between tags, without rewriting the tags themselves...

I'd love to see that.

That raptorize looks hysterical.

Does anyone want to help me make it work?

danielwmoore

I modified the Raptorize to work within the confines of my site, that is, to keep it in character.

It is now Zombie-ize on my site.  http://insaniquariumguide.com/forum

It works by Konami Code only for now, so use up up down down left right left right B A, and of course, works only once per page load.

Found an error in the JavaScript that caused it not to work in Firefox 10+ with sound, fixed that.

It is pretty cool there.  I plan to keep that one year round as a Konami Code treat, and perhaps will have it to an automatic display on delay for every page load on April 1st.

@WantSome: I could help you make that work.

I heard that this year there will be no April Fool's day.

I am trying Raptorize, but I can't get it to work.

I still keep believing vB 5 is a joke but sadly not.
