Allie's avatar

@richardhenry DICK IS HERE!

El_Cadejo's avatar

i think my favorite part of this whole feature is the fact that i can be lazy and not type the users name :)

well so much for our nicknames

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

@Allie, You’re favorite!

Allie's avatar

@omfgTALIjustIMDu does it have honey?

richardhenry's avatar

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

@Allie, I supposed that’s up to @richardhenry

jlm11f's avatar

@Judi @blastfamy – check your PM please.

richardhenry's avatar

@Nimis I love pancake.

So are we all appreciating the new feature then?

nikipedia's avatar

@uberbatman: 23 minutes, 94

buster's avatar

thanx for your patience homies that was a challenge for my mind

Nimis's avatar

@richardhenry Err…understatement. On both counts.

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

@buster, We <4 you :)

augustlan's avatar

@Nimis Where is my pancake?!? Must have pancake.

Nimis's avatar

@augustlan For you? A whole towering stack of pancakes!

@omfgTALIjustIMDu @lunabean @uberbatman @blastfamy @elumas @peedub @nikipedia More pancakes!

Hmmm…not all users came up on my pull down list thingy?

jlm11f's avatar

@Nimis – I had pancakes for breakfast today!!!!!! Oh wait. That could be taken the wrong way on Fluther….

Nimis's avatar

Wow. So good, she had to say it twice.
Nice breakfast, PnL.

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

@PnL i had them yesterday for brunch. I don’t get this whole fluther pancake thing though. What am i missing?

richardhenry's avatar

@PnL I had breakfast for pancakes today?

jlm11f's avatar

@omfgTALIjustIMDupancake

@richardhenry – stop confusing me!

ssteward's avatar

@buster clearly this is some arcane geek black magic not meant for the rest of us

aprilsimnel's avatar

Hello? Is it OK to answer now? ::looks both ways:: Good.

This new feature is very nice. Thank you.

Edit: @Nimis It is very nice. It’s the dropdown list of responders that’s magnificent!

Nimis's avatar

@aprilsimnel Nice?! Get thee to a thesaurus, woman!
This is much more than just nice.

Judi's avatar

@PnL It just showed up. I get the awesomeness now.

augustlan's avatar

I had pancakes long before breakfast this morning ;)

richardhenry's avatar

@richardhenry Look, I’m replying to myself.

richardhenry's avatar

@richardhenry You’re hilarious. Hahaha!

richardhenry's avatar

If I could GA myself, the ego stroking would be complete.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@dick i think youve done enough stroking already

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

@richardhenry, We’ll know if you do.

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

@uberbatman, Nice. Or should I say…ingratiating?

richardhenry's avatar

@uberbatman You’re rather disproportionate, foot-in-mouth, ill-fitted, ill-suited, ill-timed, improper, inapplicable, inapropos and malapropos, young man.

richardhenry's avatar

@omfgTALIjustIMDu What, stroke myself, or give myself a great answer? ZING

Nimis's avatar

@omfgTALIjustIMDu That seems kind of dirty that the other moderators
will know if RichardHenry partakes in a little stroking.

augustlan's avatar

Only if they have a UV Light!

aprilsimnel's avatar

@augustlan Now that’s a callback!

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@uberbatman thanks for asking this question! i just thought everyone had adopted the JA habit all of a sudden, and i wasn’t too excited about it, so i didn’t even click on the @everyones until i read this question. plus now i get to practice @uberbatman -ing you, and @omfgTALIjustIMDu-ing you, and @Judi-ing you. hey, this is fun!

AstroChuck's avatar

Now, what exactly did I just do?
Type slowly, I’m a little slow this evening.

Nimis's avatar

@strochuck <—I know that doesn’t work, I just had to type it out.

@AstroChuck Hey! You should try to get 10 lurve and ONLY 10 lurve
from now until midnight. When you get your +1 lurve for the night—voila!
You’ll have some nice looking numbers.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

ATastrochuck, just type the AT symbol, and then wait and see what happens. you should see a list of the users on this thread.

(i just discovered apparently this feature doesn’t work when you’re editing a response. it wouldn’t even post it with an ATsomeone)

the other cool thing is, when you click on the links, they take you to that person’s last quip.

AstroChuck's avatar

You must be typing too fast because I still don’t understand.

judochop's avatar

Nice, even works on the iPhone. Prettyfreakinawesome!

Now what?

AstroChuck's avatar

What’s it supposed to do? When I click on it it just opens a duplicate screen.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

when you click on one of the new links, it should take you to the person whose name it is’s last quip.

AstroChuck's avatar

I don’t mean to sound dim but what is its purpose and why is this awesome?

augustlan's avatar

Now my up and down arrows aren’t working to change lines in an answer I’m fiddling with. Not just in this question, either. They don’t move my cursor at all.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@astrochuck, i believe the purpose is to easily identify the original comment that provoked the response, and the reasons that it is awesome are because it’s new and it’s convenient.

(@augustlan, my up and down arrows seem to be working fine, but i was having some issues with them on another website earlier tonight. you don’t have firefox, do you?)

AstroChuck's avatar

Gotcha. My brain is like sorghum tonight.
Thanks and lurve.

judochop's avatar

All this talk of up and down. Hmmm I must visit the removing stains question now.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@judochop, don’t forget your sock!

augustlan's avatar

@La_chica_gomela : Nope, not firefox. Hmmm.

arnbev959's avatar

@petethepothead oh this is great.

syz's avatar

Why do I sometimes get the drop-down and other times I don’t?
Why doesn’t it work at all if I type something and then go back to start the line with it?
Why can I no longer navigate within my question with up and down?

loser's avatar

Don’t feel bad. I’m not sure I really understand the whole pancake thing!

augustlan's avatar

@loser:
Pancake

You’re welcome ;)

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@syz, after i started playing around with it, the same thing happened to me: sometimes the drop-down menu shows up. other times not.

loser's avatar

@augustlan: Oh! Thank you!!!
How on earth did I miss that question?!!

Nimis's avatar

Oh goodness.
We’ll have to catch you up.
