    How about 3 Error'd per day?

  • Matt (unregistered)

    I have to say that I enjoyed the three-screen shot Friday. As a relatively new visitor to the site, I don't know how this worked out for Pop-Up Potpourri, but the "quickie laugh" is something we can all use on the end of the week. I could see the same for Monday, but mid week I'd much rather see one of your brilliantly written commentaries on secret employee #372 of secret company #84.

    Of which, all I have to say on the matter is, bravo!

    I like the trio, because a picture may be worth a thousand words, but it doesn't read like it. You see one image, maybe chuckle, but then it's over. But a series lets you build up and I think makes it feel less flat than one image.

    I guess I'm saying "more is better", a revelation, I sure :P

    A single one, as you have been sure to note, is sometimes confused as a standard WTF. Giving us three at once gets rid of this confusion. Let's go with this.

  • Micha (unregistered)

    My vote goes to 3 Error'd a post.

  • Dianne (unregistered)

    I like 3 in one post. As many days a week as you can give them, I'd be happy to view them.

  • BigPimpin' (unregistered)

    The big WTF on the date screenshot is that you can select TODAY as the date!

    I don't know about overseas, but I've never seen a newborn ride a motorcycle. I imagine that the helmet laws should be more strict when someone's skull hasn't yet hardened.

  • Vischar (cs)

    I definitely like the 3 at once better than 1 at a time...

    Regardless of the frequency.

  • Anonymous (unregistered)

    I vote for 3 (or more) screens for Error'd

  • sockatume (unregistered)

    I'm reminded of James Gleick's classic bit of incomprehensible computer jargon:

    "Enter the field name Name in the Field Name field."

  • Daniel Vandersluis (cs)

    I, too, like the three-at-a-time format.

  • cmcginnis (cs)

    I prefer the one a day format. That way there is a chance of getting one good chuckle per day.

  • Jason S (unregistered)

    Am I the only one twisted enough to find the message about the rules totally understandable?

  • whiny wee bastard (unregistered)

    Three-screenshots-per-post-on-Monday,-Wednesday,-and-Friday format's good.

  • Cedric M. (unregistered)

    It's better if it's done like pop-up potpourri was done. You wait a little longer, but you laugh (or cry) more :D

    The more errors, the merrier.

    It's not like software is going to stop being poorly written and cause you to run out of material.

  • fej (unregistered)

    three(or more) screenshots every day!!

    and the Rules-child-rules-childrules-childchild thing is soo much of a WTF !!

  • anne (unregistered)

    I like as many as you got. These are the ones that cause me to snort coffee out my nose.

  • Someone You Know (cs)

    What happens if it is December 25th and you click the "Today" button?

  • freelancer (cs)

    Vote: 3 shots per post.

  • Ben (unregistered)

    I like the 3 images/post

  • Tsom (unregistered)

    3 screenshots FTW!!!!

    captcha--pirates! Garrrr!

  • llsutherland (unregistered)

    I like the new way.

    I prefer it this way...

    This looks to me to be a classic example of reusing (maybe ripping off? surely not!) some code that doesn't quite fit the new job...
  • Braden (unregistered)

    I like three at once. It makes it less disappointing if one is lame.

  • Rurouni (unregistered)

    I definitely prefer the 3-at-once format.

    I agree, it makes sense, although maybe it could have been worded better..

    And yes, go with 3 screenshots at a time.

  • kungfu (unregistered)

    The three per day is a better format.

    Oh yea, and Jimmy Buffett's Dec 25 b-day trumps Jesus any day.

    You mean Jimmy Buffett isn't Jesus? Does this mean I have to change all my crucifixes? And here I always though angels looked better with parrot wings.

  • Ryan Smith (unregistered)

    I like the several in a row. They're funner to send around to co-workers.

  • yetihehe (unregistered)

    Well, to someone who works every day with references, this error message is totally understandable and makes sense.

  • null reference (unregistered)

    Here's another vote for the big 3 three times a week.

  • stupid old me (unregistered)

    The real WTF is... oh, wait, sorry, lost my head. I like this format better.

  • cory (unregistered)

    Much prefer the three per day, three days a week format.

  • SuperJason (unregistered)

    New way!!!!

  • Kemp (unregistered)

    Pot Pourri and derivatives for the win

  • Steve (unregistered)

    I suppose I'm about the only person, but I like the single posts better, more often. It allows you to appreciate each one more. Or maybe that's just me.

  • Zygo (unregistered)

    I like the three per day approach, or as I prefer to think of it, nine per week. Good farce requires momentum, and one post per day doesn't do it--sometimes things get funnier when I read the whole week's worth on Friday.

    The three per day could be titled "OMG", "WTF", and "LMAO" ;-)

  • Carlos Gortaris (unregistered)

    i totally prefer the N-error'd-per-day format, with N >= 3

    There are two WTFs there. 1: Bad English 2: Why is this a dialogue at all?

    1: Geek Translation. Copying a node of a tree will also copy all child nodes. Parents of the original node will not link to the copy.

    1a: User Translation : Are you sure? (Thus further training users to click "yes" to everything that pops up.)

    2: Wouldn't this be better in general instructions & training manuals? Is the warned against behaviour really all that expected?

  • morry (unregistered)

    Like 2 chicks at the same time, man, 3 is better than 1.

  • Picky, Picky, Picky (unregistered)

    What would be nice is if you recycled (go green) all the old screen shots, so you click on a page and it shows you the new ones, and then some randomly selected old ones so that you can just keep going until you get bored, you use up your quota, or your ribs brake. Now that's what I would like.

  • Ares (unregistered)

    I really hated the 1 a day, they were seldom funny/amusing, and just seemed like a waste of time. The 3 just seem to be collectively better. New way is MUCH better.
