Note that in most (all?) graphical history viewers for Git time flows from bottom up, i.e. newest commits are on top, not on bottom as in this comics --JakubNarebski (talk) 07:21, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

  • This was bothering me. I was starting to doubt my own experience, and intended to switch to an old project to check. — Kazvorpal (talk) 22:16, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

I can relate. While I start with reasonable commit messages every day, working on one feature often results in

(good description of feature)
bugfixes for (description of feature)
another bugfix
should work now
I hate (some used library)

when I either need commit to deploy or I'm so sure it will work I don't test it deeply enough. If I would be using git, these could be merged, but I'm not. -- Hkmaly (talk) 10:51, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Once I made a commit titled "lotsa shit" (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

What does the line graphic in the left-most column represent? Smperron (talk) 13:03, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

This is the Git commit graph, in various ways of looking at a commit history git draws a graph like that to show branching and merging. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Nice explanation folks. Makes the comic understandable/humorous to a non-coder. (unless you count VBScript) --DanB (talk) 13:16, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Nothing wrong with VBScript, though "coder" could be stretching the definition by a bit. (git it?) JChrisCompton (talk) 19:41, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
You seem to understand it pretty well now, DanB, judging by your edit history. --Aaron of Mpls (talk) 07:56, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Commit Cloud is a relevant tool to read commit messages from Github and build a word cloud from the most-used words. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Mine actually lists a link to this comic. I'm laughing so hard right now. Okofish (talk) 09:35, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm very glad I'm not the only person this happens to. --Okofish (talk) 15:23, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Regarding "although he seems to have avoided the ; key for some reason": A likely reason is that messages are passed on the command line with -m and without surrounding quotes to save time, and the ; ends the command line. 06:03, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

10/10 explanation of keyboard slams right there in that last paragraph 00:51, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

One thing that's bothering me is how Randall haven't fast-forwarded when merging "here have code" and "aaaaaaaa" into the main branch. It would've looked much less ugly! 21:33, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Am I the only one who sometimes types "HAANDS" into the edit summary field when I'm just commenting? (EDIT: oops forgot signature) {)|(}Quill{)|(} 14:47, 19 April 2021 (UTC)

i just used "" as a commit message 22:43, 22 November 2022 (UTC)

this happens to me too, but with code reviews: since we do it through irc because it's me and my friend in another country, it's also text that derives into dumbness (i once put "vfhdvbuhvfehefuvb" in a review xd) --an user who has no account yet (talk) 17:20, 2 September 2023 (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Ahoy there "an user who..."! If you're passing this way again:
  • You can (and should) still sign your Talk contributions. Use the ~~~~ at the end to datetime (and add the IP, before you get an account, but the datetime is the important bit!)
  • It's easy enough to get an account. If you're just like me and aren't satisfied with any username choice, fair enough, but I think you actually have a decent (ironic, once you join with it) username in your "...who has no account yet". That might be fun!
  • Except that, it's "A user...", not "An user". Because "user" doesn't start with a vowel sound. Not sure if this is you being deliberately off-beat (like your no-caps style of message), but on the off chance that English is your second(/third/etc) language. (And, if it is, then can't fault you otherwise. But maybe the quirks are deliberate...)
...just in case you notice this. I hope you do, but it's hard to know where you'll land next if you're jumping around on Random pages. 20:27, 2 September 2023 (UTC)

done, also, it was both on purpose and english being my second language, i have a really good grammar actually... when i want to :)

what was it, again? the signature thing

oh wait it's right there

my bad An user who has no account yet (talk) 22:05, 2 September 2023 (UTC)

Well then, welcome to the party. (Or grindstone. Or partying grindstone.) I had an inkling you were being a bit deliberate about it all (the "an user" bit), but there's worse out there. And, apart from the affectations, yup, I agree. Many who are competent at English as a second Language are better than some of those who should be competent in it as their first.
Anyhoo, just to acknowledge this (and possibly inadvertently insult many other anglophones!)... I wish you all the best in fitting right in. And now back to my other tasks... 23:25, 2 September 2023 (UTC)

ok thx, also, whenever i put nonsense in a review it means (and my friend knows it) "let's do it tomorrow" An user who has no account yet (talk) 13:01, 5 September 2023 (UTC)
