This was my first time writing a transcript, so let me know if I did anything wrong. 108.162.219.88 16:52, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Nice, but it's called a panel, not a frame. Jtvjan (talk) 17:04, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
sorry, my fault, I exchanged "comic" by "frame" instead of "panel" - solved :-) --LaVe (talk) 17:12, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
Well done ;) -- please have a look at my changes to the layout.--Dgbrt (talk) 17:57, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

I understood this comic as being a parody on how news organizations decide their content and media regardless of how annoying it is to actually try to get all your news information out of videos (which I think annoys Randall) https://xkcd.com/1280/ 108.162.215.214 19:01, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

I've added information on a real example of "sexy news", and in the process extended our wikinfrastructure with Template:Hov (for hovertext) and Template:NSFW (for potentially NSFW links which belong on the wiki- like the link to Naked News's Wikipedia article).

I'd recommend adding a dotted bottom-border to Hov and changing the cursor it shows to "help". ~AgentMuffin
I considered the dotted bottom, but decided against it because I'd prefer to be able to not have that border when necessary, and to add a template derived from Hov that incorporates the bottom. Perhaps having a dotted underborder by default which can be disabled with an option would fill both needs? Hppavilion1 (talk) 16:28, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Obviously the presenters need to be skilled in tactile signing (see Wikipedia's Deafblindness article). No problem there. 108.162.221.64 01:17, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

"This concept has not, for some reason, spread to the mainstream..." ...possibly because naked women are a fairly narrow and arbitrary definition of "sexy". --141.101.107.18 12:33, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

...possibly because women are a fairly narrow and arbitrary definition of "sexy". These Are Not The Comments You Are Looking For (talk)

Notice that a new what if? - Toaster vs. Freezer was released yesterday, the day after this comic was released. Less than three weeks between releases this time. Maybe Randall will begin to release more than one a month. It has been three this year since January 30th. (vs. only 5 other going back a year from today!) Cool :-) --Kynde (talk) 08:58, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

I couldn't find any "good idea" comics. Do you think we can just remove the tag? Waterhorse800 (talk) 15:16, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
