@Shadow seems Yaakov added some more chains to the easter egg.
seems there is a chain that goes
> monkey->octopus->panda->snail->dragon->rhino->crocodile
and unicorn produces a distinct result too.
 
Chain? How so?
Aren't they all just randomly picked vids?
 
@ShadowThePrincessWizard all the animals in the old chain from chicken to deer now link to the same video.
for some random reason monkey now links to octopus and so on...
and crocodile brings you to a 10 hours of sax video
unicorn... give a "all your bases" video
 
Doubt Yaakov had time to really put a riddle in place... more likely just random.
 
and apparently that's it
 
Unless.... he got unofficial support from balpha....
@Derpy sax??
 
9:34 AM
@Hitodama indeed. you win. — Yaakov Ellis ♦ 13 mins ago
nope, seems he just made this two chains
 
Well, there's a good chance I'll be seeing him IRL sometime pretty soon... anything you want me to ask him? @Derpy
(pretty soon = 6 to 8 weeks)
 
@ShadowThePrincessWizard nothing specifically. I played out this game just because he basically picked up the task to have a Winter Bash by himself
 
(so many things might become non relevant until then)
 
9:37 AM
I still won't wear an hat.
 
Same, I opted out, don't even see hats.
 
But he gets my respect for trying
 
I probably will just keep using the knitting tool
 
9:51 AM
anyway...
@Shadow will be fun to see this mentioned in the Bash closing blog post
in ❄️ Tarnish Web 2019?!? ❄️, yesterday, by X-27
I can't wait for the end-of-bash post where 9 of the top 10 users will most likely be named Reinstate Monica :)
 
heh. Good point.
I don't envy Yaakov.
hmm... but the blog post isn't written by the dev, so it's not his problem.
I guess they'll simply skip the traditional blog post, or won't put any names this year.
 
@ShadowThePrincessWizard I will place my bet on the second option
 
Yeah... closing their eyes trying to make the bad monster go.
 
@ShadowThePrincessWizard ..... thanks. Now I need to play Yomawari again
 
9:57 AM
I guess I could try to knit that.
 
10:42 AM
btw, @Shadow... did you look at the leaderboard?
Maybe it is just early for that... but I don't really see much participation?
 
@Derpy nope
@Derpy too early, the top bashers appear to be in, e.g. Eran
(Saw him posting something recently)
 
@ShadowThePrincessWizard but Meta SE having just about 170 hats on day two?
 
Don't remember past years. But meh... even so, it doesn't mean a lot.
 
11:03 AM
@ShadowThePrincessWizard oddly, the import result in this case is better than I expected. Eerie like it should - nice.
 
Well, the original was pretty dark too.
 
11:43 AM
Sadly, this one too requires an extended color palette
 
 
4 hours later…
3:28 PM
and... the tavern is quite a dumpsterfire right now.
 
?
Just one person asking about GDPR and mentioning life threats? Nah... that shouldn't ruin the fun.
 
It keeps switching from one issue to the next to be fair. I don't see much idle chats.
 
Meh... still nothing serious.
 
4:35 PM
need a better picture
