My current sig line on the ng's promotes Cellar as "Because you need some brain food."

Ridiculous Suggestions:

Go through a variety of emotions in just one sitting

A well-organized army of talking heads

oops! we got the punctuation wrong.

and it looks best with a period, or dot, at the end to close the thought, even if it is a sentence fragment. The verb "is" being implied.

I really really <b>really</b> liked "patiently awaiting the dot-org bubble"... :)

Nic Name 07-07-2002 11:16 AM

These little humorisms have a short shelf life, at best. So, it's good for everyone interested to keep thinkin' and postin' new ideas and comments here to keep the tag line fresh.

Undertoad 07-07-2002 11:29 AM

Done. "Dot-org bubble" will be next then. Nic, remind me when this one is too old...

An oasis in the desert of cluelessness

Welcoming everyone except the intolerably irritating since 1990



My favorite web site tag line of all time is from The Straight Dope. Of course we'd never stoop to "borrowing" it: "Fighting ignorance since 1973 (it's taking longer than we thought)"

Nic Name 07-08-2002 08:28 PM

Fighting and ignorant since 1990. ;)

Griff 07-09-2002 06:08 AM

or possibly...

Irritating everyone except the intolerably welcoming since 1990.

or Madison ave style...

Its Cellarific.

Apple seed and apple thorn;

And one flew west,
And one flew over the cuckoo's nest.

Undertoad 04-02-2003 03:03 PM

Now you're making me forget whether I actually USED "dot-org bubble". I thought I did, did I?

Whit 04-02-2003 03:04 PM

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Yeah, it was used.

dave 04-03-2003 05:20 AM

And it was THE GREATEST TAGLINE IN CELLAR HISTORY!

Did you come up with that or what? It was beautiful.

Undertoad 04-03-2003 10:25 AM

Thanks man.

hot_pastrami 04-22-2003 03:33 PM

The Cellar: we've upped our standards, so up yours.

Undertoad 04-22-2003 03:50 PM

That's awesome. OK the real reason why I haven't updated the current tag line is that after upgrading web software and not upgrading the forum software, a small piece of the administrative system *broke*. I've been too lazy to fix it. I will get around to it tonight though. I'm certain.

Undertoad 04-22-2003 04:09 PM

There, I got to it!

The Cellar: Where somebody might agree with you.
The Cellar: Because you have nothing better to do.
The Cellar: It beats doing you job.

Those last two are right in the zone, imo.

Excellent

juju 05-17-2003 07:04 PM

The Cellar: affect means to influence, effect means result.

It's not funny, but I really think it needs to be on the front page as an everyday reminder before people will get it. Or, maybe it could be in the FAQ (if we have one).

xoxoxoBruce 05-19-2003 05:28 PM

Will putting that up effect what people write? Will the affect be good?:p

Tobiasly 05-19-2003 05:59 PM

Thank you juju. I'd never heard that before; hopefully it will help me.

I'm normally very anal about such things. If I see someone use "it's" as a possessive, I can pretty much write them off as far as having any intelligence goes. So I'm constantly pissed off by the fact that I know "affect" and "effect" are commonly transposed, but I can never myself remember which is which.

Now, if someone can explain "different from" vs. "different than" in a way that sticks in my head, I'll be set.

Mistake. Never confuse ignorance with intelligence. Also sometimes people write with passion or hurriedly. I've written posts and reread them over several times, only to go back the next day to find I've written the instead of they. It's funny how, when editing you can read what you're thinking instead of what you're writing. But, maybe this only happens to me. :D

If you're hip to thourough editing, read your work from end to beginning. You'll pick up almost every mistake you've made.

OK, maybe a little hyperbole on my part.

Since I "think aloud" in my head while I type, one of my most common mistakes is typing "ov" instead of "of".
