5884 × 9286 pixel image??

When I open this page (, in case there's any confusion), I get an enormous image that bleeds far past the right and bottom of the page. Turns out that the image is 5884 × 9286 pixels. Has this been seen before? -- Dtgriscom (talk) 19:05, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Looks like Randall must have uploaded the wrong image size. I assume he'll fix the comic shortly. 19:32, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

11) I don't care if any generalised 'group chat' software does newest-first or oldest-first as default (and if you can resort to the other order, most-upticked, or whatever) but if it allows inclusion of prior comments, please DO NOT ENCOURAGE TOP-POSTING, particularly when reply-pyramids can carelessly form with recless abandon, and often beyond the "this post is too long, click here to expand" point you often get. - Honestly, I just think a dose of more widespread peer-directed Usenet Netiquette (pre-Eternal September, definitely pre-Outlook Express) could do a lot of people good as well. Randomly split people up into 1990-ish sized cohorts for a 'training period' of socialisation until they can safely 'graduate' to the globally undelineated cohort. 20:12, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Ok boomer, I'll be off your lawn in a moment. In the mean time I think there's a cloud up there which can't hear you. 20:25, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Anyone got any ideas about (4)? The only group chat I know of which constantly changes their group names to different random nonsense is the Chapo Trap House Discord. 20:32, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

This might just be something that he has experienced personally. All of the large group chats of which I've been a member have exhibited this behavior. In fact, I thought it was pretty weird that no one on here had heard of this before. I related to it immediately. Moosenonny10 (talk) 23:10, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
If there is a public example please add it. 23:13, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Does anyone think that (10) means that all of the rules were sent as separate messages and the last one's just an apology for doing that? 22:17, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Good call. 22:48, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
