Hmmm I think I want to visit Null's Farm



  • visit null's farm confirmation box



  • Unintentional output of “null” wasn’t cute or noteworthy the first hundred times it was posted to TDWTF. What makes you think this time is any different?

    In b4 TRWTF is you posting an uncompressed bitmap. Welcome to the Web; we have image compression (and no, just changing the extension to .jpg doesn’t magically compress anything).



  •  TRWTF is you not using PNG.

     And also Farmville. Go for Country Story! :|

    What? You're concerned about bandwidth?

    Picture looks great to me.

    It's over a meg, which is pretty ridiculous for a single image.  God didn't invent cable modems just so we could waste His precious bandwidth.



  •  TRWTF is posting a BMP named .jpg.

    Correction: TRWTF is posting a BMP, period.



  •  WTF are you doing playing farmville? That sir isTRWTF. In fact, facebook "apps" are all TRWTF, facebook's way of sucking money from the suckers who buy virtual items. In fact, buying virtual items is an even bigger WTF. There's so much WTF-ery going on here that I can't believe you thought null was the only WTF.

     

    Oh and the 1MB bmp/jpg was a WTF too. Dude, you are just rolling in it today.



  •  TRWTF is Facebook.



  • Surely there's a missing option, it should be accept, cancel, and farm_not_found.



  •  Oeh, burn thread.

    Yet so just.

    Tell that to YouTube and their $1 million/day bandwidth fees. 



  • I'm don't think that realising there are miillions of punters who would baulk at paying $40 for a decent game, with all its development effort, but who would let that same amount dribble out a few cents at a time playing drivel like FarmVille, could be described as a WTF. Pure genius, in fact.

    Pure evil genius, that is. I'm beginning to think I'm in the wrong job. I should be writing crappy flash games and Facebook apps, that seems to be where all the money is these days :-/

    No, you need to make games that require special worthless plastic peripherals that must be purchased with the game.

    With that in mind, who's looking forward to the next generation of Japanese rape games?

    FTFY.

    FarmVille and the like are basically just free toys with the option to shell out cash for add-on goodies.  In a sense, Zynga just moved the gold farming operations in-house.

    Spending your hard-earned cash on a fake building or tree or whatever is a WTF, but hey, people also pay monthly subscriptions for games, which never made a damn bit of sense to me.  So while it might just be a crappy Harvest Moon ripoff, it's still free, and I don't think it's any worse than playing "normal" video games.

    I agree with you there,  it becomes a WTF when you pay real money to get perks. It's more of a WTF when they scam users by tricking them into clicking ads and getting them into subscription for useless services. And the biggest WTF is that facebook was in bed with these goons.
