This is a great idea
It's a total bargain, way better that the cost of another mark
I allready bought my copy
That is what I was thinking.
This baby is off the charts!
what abot a mark for when something is really gay?
Denoting your sarcasm basically takes all the fun out of being sarcastic
So... if someone buys this "Sarcasm Mark" for $1.99, and uses it in an email. Or on a forum. Does that mean the person reading it will also need to buy the "Sarcasm Mark" for $1.99 to be able to see the mark on the screen?
I can almost see it now... emails and forum posts with little links attached to "Buy your sarcasm mark here".
Or will WallMace and thejulex get sued for using the image without permission?
Yeah... Great Idea...
HOLY CRAP THIS HAS CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER!
So when will we introduce a mark for when you're being a douche?
Did you mean really gay or really gay? Either way, we're going to need a lot of colours.
I thought that symbolized a black eye from getting punched out.
Besides, we have issues having the new generations deal with the current punctuation marks... now you want to add another one?
Absolutely agreed, most of the fun with sarcasm is when the target doesnt get it and rambles on nonsensically, hehe.
Leave our Language alone, dont ruin this experience!
Well we would just get you to post.
But yeah, could just use this and be done with it:
You don't type sarcasm , you live it and dish it out
How long before there's a freeware version?
That'll be 5$ and 97¢ mister
What we really need is a facepalm punctuation mark. Having a keyboard shortcut would be much more convenient and widely used on the internet.
The real question is how will people see the mark if they don't have it!
Oh also a vid of it in action!
After watching that video I don't think they know what sarcasm is
if you need to explain your being sarcastic you already failed
I agree there are many supposedly sarcastic posts that really arent but there also loads of people who just cant see sarcasm or arent good at it and they ask sometimes.
Well they fail on the website with their paypal script. You don't even have to pay to get the download code email
Thats probably deliberate to get more exposure and more people downloading it !
They can easily fix it after a set amount of free downloads.
Is that Sarcasm, or a boob?
At any rate, VBBS can just add a circle with a dot and be done with it.
Do they also sell bridges?
The comments there are better than the video.
Not sure but they had these really dumb commercials for the word "gay."
Oops no edit:
There is the commercial. It's hilarious that they put something out like that.
I was about to read the article but I saw lingerie football on the side. I clicked that instead.
... or at least choose to ignore, is that there exists already a method of signifying sarcasm. You see it in subtitles for example. It's simply (!)
<(*-*<) <(*-*)> (>*-*)> !!
That's a better use of the space, frankly... and for those unsure, notice there's no sarcasm mark.
^ LOL never heard of the Kirby Dance before, but that looks funny.
@ am i doin it rite
Kirby dance ftw... you know when someone's an old-school gamer when they know what Kirby is .
they did make a ttf file called sarcmark.ttf that replaces the omega with the sarcmark.
I wonder why did they replace such a important character and not something less important like one of those box chars.
Oh, good, that means I'm not an old-school gamer ... yet!
