Take it from here guys. Also, glad the website is back online! Nialpxe (talk) 06:58, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

"Who else is watching..." is used as some form of community bonding on Youtube to connect with other people re-watching (or watching for the first time) (much) older videos at a later date. COmpare with "Who else got here from XKCD [or similar]" if the video was linked from a particular site and it's users are trying to recognize each other. 07:03, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Yay! The website's finally back online! --JayRulesXKCD what's up? 11:35, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Isn't often Randall does color. Hmmm, must be Fake.  :) -- 11:37, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Guess it is supposed to be funny, but just for the sake of it... Randall has done 383 comics with color, including this one, making it more than one in five (20.9%) that use color! ;-) --Kynde (talk) 15:54, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

"When I went on a boat I dropped my phone can you look for it" I wonder if this is supposed to mean that the phone [insert name here] dropped is the one live-streaming or if [insert name here] is asking the people on the live-stream to look for his phone. --JayRulesXKCD what's up? 11:49, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Crafting might not be a Minecraft reference, as lots of games have crafting. 12:54, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Fixed it. --JayRulesXKCD what's up? 13:30, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
First time I read that, I was thinking along the lines of a Let's Play with a MMO. -- 13:08, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Me too. Elektrizikekswerk (talk) 09:43, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

"[T]he ocean... is not a small place[citation needed]" is flat out hilarious. I just want to show my appreciation for whoever put 'citation needed' in there. I'm going to spend the next several days just thinking about how funny that is. IonFreeman (talk) 13:38, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Honestly, I feel that joke is way too overused on this wiki 16:19, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

I only can remember it being used twice, and this was one of those two. OldCorps (talk) 16:33, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes it is used too much. I have rephrased the title text explanation anyway, and deleted it. --Kynde (talk) 15:54, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Did anyone notice the subtle style changes to xkcd? The buttons at the top have their glow going beyond the black line now, and (less noticable) your mouse needs to be one pixel farther into the comic to see the mouseover text. 18:24, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

No, but thanks for mentioning. --Kynde (talk) 15:54, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

Why is the title text capitalized?

Whoever added that to the chat has capslock on, I assume-- 11:47, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

It says that this comic needs more explanation of the comments. However, there is a quite detailed table beneath it that described the comments. Does this still need the incomplete tag? Dretler (talk) 18:35, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

I thought that this comic was being a little unfair to the average person watching a scientific livestream. I am watching the live NASA feed of the impact of DART into Didymos, and of the 120,000 people currently watching, it does seem that the most vocal people are exhibiting this level, or more, of trolling and scientifically dubious comments. Randall, I should not have doubted you. Dextrous Fred (talk) 22:30, 26 September 2022 (UTC)
