He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

Nothing of importance happened today.

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

It's nothing major, but I've noticed a couple things on the iPhone regardless of whether I'm on mobile, full or desktop versions.

1. I'm getting ads inside posts (typically longer posts).

2. I can keep scrolling down past where the bottom of the page would be on my MacBook and there will be random pictures (some avatars, some just random pics from random threads).

Is anyone else getting this? I don't see it on MacBook or iPad...only iPhone.

Edit, scratch that. I just saw it happen on iPad, with this post no less!

It's happening on my iPhone, too. Noticed the random stuff at the bottom of the page for a little while now (mostly when the page loads weirdly), haven't noticed the mid-post ads all that much (posts are usually too short i guess? Just checked a fanfic thread and there were a few)

Here's a screen cap of the ad thing. This is on Chrome again (though on PC this time). It's only on (most of) Sabrblade's posts.

Well, suffice to say the server upgrade fund I've got going is meant to address this type of stuff so hopefully we'll hit goal soon and I can get started. This place is falling apart!

Definitely odd but manageable. It does seem random though as I navigated back to the exact same page and post and it's not there any more. I have U-block and Flash Control turned off for the 'Spark - the only extension running is HTTPS everywhere (but none of that has changed in ages).

These seem to be Google ads judging by where they linked to, at least when they showed up for me. Sometimes I see an in-post ad later pops up in the actual ad area.

Speaking of which, I haven't checked often enough to be sure, but it looks like the ad that's appearing in posts/sigs is loading instead of the banner ad that's supposed to be at the bottom of the page. I've never seen one in both places at the same time.

There's now multiple of these on a single page and they're bigger than the usual top and bottom ads.

Yeah, I'm seeing a lot of banner ads after posts. Nothing in posts yet, just banner ads popping up after the report/multiquote/quote buttons, before the next post.

 

Nothing at the bottom of the page, though.

 

Running Windows 10 with Chrome browser.

Yeah, I just assumed that the ads after posts were intentional since that's an option that exists. (Felt bad, like maybe it was our fault for not getting up to the server goal yet!) Similarly on Windows and Linux with Firefox and Chromium respectively, as well as Chrome on Android, I haven't seen any junk at the end of pages, but have been seeing the interstitial ads on at least both desktop browsers, and there are four ad banners between posts in this thread right now for me. 

 

Edit: I know there was a question about whether they were Google ads etc., but I mean, those are the adsense buttons, it's definitely just creating an adsense banner there and Google's obligingly populating it.
