The Jelly inmates have taken over Fluther, what should we do?

Asked by Cruiser (40444points) November 13th, 2010

Just for fun, imagine we can lock out the Mods and have our way with Fluther for 24 hours…what would you want to change or do differently?? Is there anyone you would you want to put in charge of the revolt?

What cool new features and abilities would you want to implement?? Or would you just hide until the revolt was over??

Aqua's avatar

I would want the mods back.

ucme's avatar

I would ask the following 3 questions :

What should I name my cactus?
What should I name my favourite chair?
What should I name my belly button fluff?

Yeah I know, what a radical rebel eh :¬)

marinelife's avatar

I would wait for 24 hours until Fluther went back to “normal”.

Cruiser's avatar

No time to panic @Whitsoxdude, @Aqua, @marinelife….I won’t break anything and it’s just for fun and in only 24 hours you can have your mods back! You guys can sit at Andrews desk and see if he is hiding anything good to snack on.

In the mean time…let’s change the avatars to be our real faces….
Good Questions are worth 10 lurve….oh heck make it 50!
How about an Awesome best answer ever button worth 25 lurve
A “yawn” button for obvious reasons….
And we should allow @ucme to ask more than those 3 questions….in fact he can ask as many as he wants anytime!!

marinelife's avatar

@Cruiser I want the guacamole!

ucme's avatar

@Cruiser No that’s okay, quality over quantity. Remember the mantra :¬)

sakura's avatar

I’d have a sneaky peek at things i shouldn’t and hope that no one sees me! Apart from that I dont know! I never was any good at this rebellion lark! I’d probably get led down the wrong path somewhere along the line!

lloydbird's avatar

It ain’t broke. It don’t need fixing. And they can’t.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Can I still fluther nakey?

wundayatta's avatar

I would run around supplying absurd answers to all the silly questions. There would be no one to stop me from making fun of them all. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TexasDude's avatar

@ucme, I believe you will be the one doing the “bringing,” good sir.

lloydbird's avatar

Oh, bye the way, “Jelly inmates!”?
I don’t feel obliged to stay here.
If it happened, I’d just stroll out.

perspicacious's avatar

Yeehaw; freedom at last!!

ucme's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I shall be bringing my shooter sonny. Hee hee eeh….who brings a hit stick & a fancy little shield to a gun fight eh eh?—Although I will concede one point… the suit!

YARNLADY's avatar

I’ll be back later.

chyna's avatar

I would read the entire CIA thread nekked.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I’d get the mods broken out and over to my place.

Cruiser's avatar

@ucme Don’t make me take away the remote control from you!! Live a little sir and ask a 4th question…I said so!!
Hold on to this bowl of Guacomole @marinelife while I taser @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard….I thought the doors to this revolt were securely locked!!
@lucillelucillelucille Keep the music cranked…the party is just getting started!!

ucme's avatar

@Cruiser Oh okay, you smooth talking american type thingy XD—Actually you’ve just inspired my “renegade” 4th question. What should I name my remote control? There, I did it….ooh I feel so dirrty! :¬)

ucme's avatar

Truth be told, i’d probably be singing this, over & over & over again. Naked of course, with a distant, kind of gormless expression playing across my face :¬)

Berserker's avatar

I’d raid the fridge.

I decided to leave when you said Is there anyone you would you want to put in charge of the revolt?
Oh! Hell to the no!

iamthemob's avatar

I can’t say…this question got lost amidst all the troll posts…

Fred931's avatar

I would do thisssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss, but longer, but I can’t do that right now because the mods are here…

lillycoyote's avatar

I guess I would kind of do what @wundayatta would do.

I would run around supplying absurd answers to all the silly questions.

I would have 24 hours to respond to questions in the general section with silly, funny, or smart ass answers, at least what I thought were funny, silly or smart ass unhelpful and off-topic responses, without being modded. That would be fun, for me at least. I’m not sure if my contributions would be appreciated and I’m not sure I if I would appreciate other people’s unmodded responses, but that’s what I would do.

Jeruba's avatar

I’d hope the fluthergods would do a Save of the whole site just beforehand and then, when the 24 hours were up, roll it all back with a Restore. That’s when I’d sign back on.

I’d get drunk and go naked.

heresjohnny's avatar

Probably sit back with some popcorn and watch the madness unfold.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

Gadzooks, I don’t think I would want to be around if the mods where completely locked out. If they could be hog tied long enough to add some cool features I would want to add:

• Negative larvae ability; you can negative larvae any question or answer 5 times a day total, and you could not negative the same question more than once.
• Adding graphics; that you can add jpeg, PNG, or giff image to a question to add clarity or if you simply wanted to ask the collective “what is this” or “who is this” type of question.
• Audio sampling; many times I see questions asking about a piece of music, I pass them up because it would be too difficult to answer when I can’t hear the piece. If I could hear 8 to 10 bars then it may sound familiar enough for me to try an answer.
• Bulk “stop following” feature; where you can select multiple questions you don’t want to follow and drop them with one click.
• Announcement button; way up top were the “Social”, “Meta”, etc buttons are I would add a button where you can go and congratulate jellies on their larvae acquisitions as oppose to doing it under the guise of a question.

Those are some features I would implement if I could duct tape the mods to their chairs long enough.

seazen's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central You had me at the plural of larva.

Cruiser's avatar

@seazen Aren’t you naked and drunk here all the time as it is?? ;)

@Hypocrisy_Central Now we are talking!!! Just when I thought this would be over before someone stepped up to throw down some currency for this revolt! All really great demands!! XD

I will release one mod in exchange for each of @Hypocrisy_Central‘s demands!! XD

Better late than never @Blondesjon! I like your ideas and say we extend this little soiree for a little while longer!! :))

@chezmez – your name sounds familiar, have we met before?

mattbrowne's avatar

Actually, if the mods did this secretly, I think the Fluther ethics would prevail for 24 hours. I’d only expect some minor misbehavior.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

How is the negotiations going? Are we going to get to add graphics and get one click question de-follow? <rubbing chin>

Cruiser's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central The mods have been stubborn negotiators and I feel we may have to threaten to lock them in a room with the trolls to get them to cave into our demands!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@Cruiser Maybe they can be moved better with the introducing of a belt sander on the soles of the feet or a rubber hose, we are inmates what would they expect? But we have to keep Andrew intact because he would be the most valuable and not harm @augustlan she fixed my account after the big upgrade locked me out.

Cruiser's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central Awww…just when I was about to get out the hand crank generator and alligator clips!! XD

syz's avatar

Pssst! Mods are much more susceptible to bribery than torture! Especially yummy baked goods.

rooeytoo's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard – are you the 4th one from the right??? Pretty cute!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@syz What about Gummy bears and Red Vines? I don’t have any baked goods. What about buying them a chocolate mousse and flog them with the rubber hoses while they ate…...a compromise….

rooeytoo's avatar

@Cruiser – Doesn’t matter whether you are for or against the NRA, that’s a scary picture!!! isn’t he dead yet???

TexasDude's avatar

@rooeytoo, Charlton is dead. I don’t find the picture scary at all. He’s the goddamn Omega Man.

@Cruiser, oh fine.

rooeytoo's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard – omg I shaking all over, that man should be contained!

Kraigmo's avatar

I’d program the website to say “Bababooey” every time someone pressed the word “Answer”.
I’d build a chat room and start smoking weed in there.

I’d peacefully surrender when the mods return.

ChocolateReigns's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central YES YES YES!! I love your demands.
