I didn't mentioned it, but publishing this link was a test!

The welcome banner I typed was keep unedited for about 22 minutes. Then people started to modify it gently while I was reverting it everytime.

Then after 40 minutes, the edition war was to strong with several people removing the welcome banner...

The interesting thing is that the most there are people in the experiment, the most destructive they are.

I have to confess, I did try to edit it. I wrote "Hello Losers" on it :)

I had a fun conversation with someone and drew a little cat :)

I can't get it to work in either Firefox (3.0) or Internet Explorer (7)...is that on purpose/is there some feature you use that doesn't work in those browsers? I had to download Chrome to get anything to show up.

I used Safari 4... Safari and Chrom are both WebKit. But I saw someone there was using FF 3.5...

Google contacted me to explain about their "internal quotas", and they're helping with with the site now, so don't blame them.

I added a bunch of ascii art, only to find out when I refreshed, that a good % of my characters never saved..... ohh well

Chrome did better than firefox though.

I know, same happened to me too.

Alright, after building it.... refreshing, fixing the things that did not save... building it again... refreshing.... etc etc etc.... This is the most complex one I've done....

Nope.... not time.... Just unoriginal creativity...
For some reason, when I see something as a challenge, I can not let it go until I conquer it... I guess it is sorta an OCD thing :)

Luka,
   Can you make it so that a creator of a room is able to put a passcode for editing on it if they want?

I have had too many destructive folks mess with my ascii art :)

[put at-character here]Travis Harris : I have no connection of any kind with the people of this project ^^

I do not seem to see anything other than a full page of "u" characters repeating over and over, regardless of what URL I use on yourworldoftext.com . Is the software down?

Well I really enjoyed it while it lasted and build lots of castles but now swastika bots have taken over...
