    (lmk if this should be moved to a different subforum)

    i love the changing titles of the drama threads, but when a new title is chosen the old one is Lost

    i thought we could start a record of past titles for nostalgia's sake and also for shits and giggles, because most of them are damn funny and i wanna remember them

    Yep. In fact I've been doing all of them for the current thread since it debuted.

    My pc browser remembers a few previous titles

    Actually, hold on, I just pulled a fuckton more out of Chrome's data files. For some reason most of these are all in lowercase, but I capitalize things fairly consistently so I can type them up with correct capitalization in a second.

    The interesting thing about this is that sometimes I try out multiple variations on a title before a settle on one, and this data file has archived all those small variations. I'm not sure if these are just titles that I've set using this computer, or what. It might be all titles I've used while logged into my main google account. I suspect it might be missing a few older ones, or ones set on my phone. I'll dig about in further data files after this. Also the Wayback Machine might be of help.

    Oh hey a few for the Kiwi Farms thread as well.

    And back to tumblr.txt
    Back to Manure Spreaders. For some reason some of these retain correct capitalization.

    Tumblr again, but this time with capitals.
    That's clearly not all of them, because for one I remember more (I think there was one about the Big Farmer), and also because it doesn't have the Fe'Male one. That might be because I may have set that from my phone. Let me see what my phone browser remembers.

    There we are. So I can add:
    That's still not all of them though. Lemme try a different keyword search on the chrome data file.

    ...wow, a lot of the content chrome has saved here is very nsfw. Lol.

    Okay, nope, I found a bunch of thread titles, but only going back so far. I think for further ones (like the Big Farmer one and any others I've forgotten) I'll have to look on the Wayback Machine. Lemme just post this and move my laptop and I'll go do that.

    .......what the fuck did I miss that involved 'an cloun' because uh. 'an cloun is coming closer' sounds. vaguely horror movieish. and I'm sorry I missed it.

    there was no explanation for a cloun, actually

    and the wayback machine won't work for fine imported drama 'cause it is one of the private forums, which can't be read by search bots

    ........now it sounds even more horror movieish.
    "an cloun"
    "an cloun is here"
    "an cloun is coming closer"
    no explanation or reason behind this

    Welp. I blame Seebs, although tbh maybe it's for the best that Kintsugi isn't being archived. According to the WBM, only three pages on the Kintsugi domain are archived. The main page, the robot.txt page, and this thread for some reason (although the WBM has even lost those archived pages atm it seems?).

    fair point

    (though i can't be 100% sure there was no reason for a cloun, since i am not @BlackholeKG, alas.)

    The big farmer was one like "Revenge of the Big Farmer's Infernal Tinctures" or something.

    Hold on, let me do more searches.

    Hehe, I think we were saying... something about clowns around then? And for a little while I did a series of shitpost-esque titles about clowns coming closer, and with "tungle.tots" and such instead of the usual titles. I think it was around halloween-ish which might have influenced me. Also around when all those clown sighting stories were about.

    Didn't it coincide with tumblr's spike in freaking out over some clown murders or something?

    I thiiink there may have been some Gamzee-related discourse approximately when the first cloun title happened? But I'm really not sure any more, maybe my brain just needed an explanation.
