After seeing the Backroom and refreshing it several times, I think it's safe to say that we won the battle already and might not have to face the "over 9000" challenge". The comment count in the backroom has stopped at 5,528 and hasn't risen any further. I guess the count really did stop by 12:00am EST.
"Students, be ambitious!"
Yup, it would be freaking awesome. That's why I suggest that we bring the comments up in this comment box to 1000. That would be an epic moment in this site.
If he does....we Rebel.
I have a feeling Adam's gonna extend this to tomorrow (Dec. 31), and will raise the limit to 9000, for reasons obvious to otakus. That way, the new feature would be revealed in time for the first day of the new year.

I don't really understand what's going on (probably cause I'm tired from events today) but I'll comment here of what I think about theotaku XD If I'm way off then just ignore/delete this~ Personally I think theotaku is the best place for art, fandom, social area for anime/anything, etc. Everything here is rather clean and organized. I like most of the features here (I never really used the chatroom here before so I can't say much about that). The people here are nice and amazing. I have yet to see anyone not of the sort (though I prefer not). The artwork here is wonderful. Everyone's so talented! Even if they consider it not very good, it's still a wonderful effort. I see a lot of creativity and spirit in people that now I'm in just a lost for words and apparently babbling but don't mind me.

WELL Adam, now that we have met your challenge, here is ours to you:
Let's make a deal: If you make the next 24 hours your new 2011 high for personal comments on every single member's guestbook, we'll reward your efforts by not breaking the site. And if the next 24 hours isn't your new high, we'll revoke the privilege of your face.
Oh, and one final request: your comments must be personal, and at least 500 words in length. For each and every member of theO. We might even subtract very generic comments from the total just to prove that we don't like your face. This isn't YouTube, after all -- we expect individual, personalized trolling, not mass-produced hoops to jump through, thank you very much.
Best get to work now~

That would be interesting. I though of it more like a fun party for everyone to babble about nothing for the sake of making more comments. Which is much more fun, and like a party, let's not hope there's that one wanker that ruins it for the rest of us XD
Does the person who posts the 5000th comment win a fabulous prize?
So if Adam ups the count again
Who here wants to go after him? I mean, there are
Wants but there are also needs.

5,000 is doable... but... so cruel.
C'MON, PEOPLE! WE'RE GETTING CLOSER TO 4,000! LET'S PICK UP THE PACE AND MAKE IT 5,000! D<
Yeah, it's hard... and a merciful person would just have us beat 5000. But unfortunately, I don't know what type of person Adam is... so I can't say whether or not he'd be merciful.
GO, MY FRIEND, GO FORTH TO ADAM'S GUESTBOOK AND TROLL HIM. TROLL HIM LIKE NO TOMORROW~
That's a lot of comments!
@Felix the Cat:
wow. yall are some of the most happy go lucky ppl ever!!!
yeah. but i mean come on. anime or not. thats hard.
5000?! You uped the ante???
Oh man and next year we're gonna haft to beat 5000!
Good luck to everyone!
We'll see what happens. Either way, I guess what we're doing here actually counts as sorta productive, dohoho.
But since he already agreed to 5000 (and we can screencap it to hold him to his word), making us go over 9000 today would be kind of... well, he's already altered it once. Pray he does not alter it further.
Tea pixie (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/30/11 | Reply
Probably have to beat whatever we get to this year +5000 XD
I guess next year we'll have to beat over 5000.
Also, I think if we actually do pass 5000, we'll get the over 9000 now already.
He'll probably have the number like "Over 9000" posts or something. You know, this being an anime site and all...
Or over 8000, considering that was the original number...
No fair!!! what about next year!?!
I like this plan XD
Essentially, yes. The original goal was 1957 comments, which we surpassed with flying colors. Then he bumped it because he's a lazy poophead.
So now we've taken to spamming his guestbook. I mean, he said he wanted 5000 now, after all...
When I say "T-Bombs," I MEAN "TROLL BOMBS." OR IN OTHER WORDS, TROLL ADAM LIKE NO TOMORROW, MY FRIEND.
T-Bombs? What are T-Bombs? o_o
Yep, anywhere at all c:
GO, GO AND DROP A FEW T-BOMBS ON ADAM'S GUESTBOOK, DO NOT BE AFRAID.
So, the comments count ANYWHERE, including people's guestbooks?
In that case, I'll be saying hello to Adam.
Of course it's possible, BE A TROLL AND TROLL ADAM ON HIS GUESTBOOK WITH US, SISTER!
WE SHALL ROCK ADAM'S WORLD WITH OUR TROLLING >:D
All I can say is, Adam just feels like being a troll |D Either way, WE MUST TROLL HIM BACK WITH OUR COMMENTS, WE'RE GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER!
Wait, when did this start? I feel like i've missed out...
Huurrr, 5000 comments? I'm pretty sure that can happen :D
So let me see if I understand this: you tell us to comment like mad for one whole day, until we reach 5000 comments. If we do, we get some new feature, but if we don't, you'll take something away. Additionally, we were not asked if we were even up to the challenge or even if we wanted to try something like this.
Am I missing something? Or is this how it is? And does anyone else think this is strange and outrageous?

COME ON GUYS, WE GOTTA NOT LET HIM HAVE HIS MUAHAHAHA'S! WE WILL ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE AND THEN HAVE A DANCE PARTY IN CELEBRATION OF OUR GLORIOUS VICTORY!
No one challenges the Cheezcake like this and expect her to back down. I WILL BE HERE TILL THE END! OR WHEN I GET BORED. WHICH EVER HAPPENS FIRST.

I try to comment as much as possible; definitely proud of the higher quality of comments I see on theO as opposed to the drivel on other sites.
Pretty much xD I think if theO stays active enough and there's a good amount of comments circulating around next year (as opposed to this totally dead year...>__>) they won't do it, but....I won't mind if they do. It's been awesome.
Challenges are fun >:D Maybe next year we're gonna be "Damn you past me! Why did you make it so difficult! Whatever, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!"
YAY! I WANNA HELP! ^u^ too bad i have to go somewhere tday, oh well keep up the good work!
I second that. I bet we can hit 5,000 xD
It's gonna be a real challenge next year, if they do this again. But I'm always up for a challenge ;)
We're already at 2,600+ so 3,000 is easy~
Never thought we'd get this much! It's a sight to behold.

Will do bossman! you know one time i tried deviant art, but it wasn't ... as fun as this site. Your right, this site is more like a family than just a site. :33
Well, some magic happened while I was gone. Are we now trying for 1,958 comments in the comment box? lol. (I wonder how many of these will actually count...? Oh well, it was pretty fun.)
Numbering comments would be a nice little feature, although I honestly don't see many articles reaching to this many comments. I remember back on the grey site (here we go) that a page system was introduced so that every 50 comments started a new page. That would nice to have again, but, like I said, we don't breach the threshold very often. These past few days have been an exception. Thread-like comments would be very interesting, but it makes me sad to think not all would see the glory of Otaku Cage Match. *smacked*
Haha, congrats to us :D Can't wait for that shiny new feature |D
We totally did it! Woot!
Congrats all around for everyone!!!
It is DOOOONE! People, let's try for 5000! *bricked, shot, stabbed and brutally murdered*

YAY!!! Nice idea Adam^^ Lol making us work for new fun upgrades?? Well at least commenting is something I absolutely love to do x3 For 3 of the first months of my Otaku stay, I wasn't able to comment at all The comment box was having lots of trouble on my laptop. Then after a friend recommended a new explorer, commenting starting working for me and I've never looked back since^^ So watch out... Here come all the comments, Otakus!!!
Great boss!! now I feel with theO spirit again!! =w=b (even thought I didn't really understand the adea!! ;XD)
and then.. that's number will gonna getting bigger and bigger!!!? O_O'
that's kinda hard!! XD good luck everyone!! X)
Actually, Adam did say that there will be a "new feature related to comments" once the record was broken. So something really is gonna be changed in the comments soon.
And you're right, the Otaku Democracy thing should serve as a clue on what's happening. I'm guessing Adam wanted to have the in-page comments to have the DISQUS-like feature of nested comments, but he might just do it instead with the pop-up comments, which would probably be something quite unique for this site.
The Silent (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/30/11 | Reply
Yes, I've been thinking along the same lines. It seems quite possible that the new feature will be related to the comments, and organization, etc. Especially given the other recent post "Otaku Democracy: Pop-Up vs. In-Page Comments" - where it's clear that the comments and their nature are being evaluated now. Although, that's not necessarily the case. It could just as easily be related to the portfolios, etc. But I like some of the ideas you've thrown out there!
Oh, I didn't notice the progress until after my last comment lol.
I thought it would take longer than that to break the record.
Ok. Then there should be plenty of time left.
Here's a thought I've been having in the last few minutes.
Could the new feature be something that involves replies to comments? Could it be like the DISQUS comment system wherein all replies and sub-replies to a comment are in a nested format?
Could it be a feature wherein people can choose to hide or expand all replies to a particular comment, for a more manageable commenting experience?
Or...wait a minute! If Adam changed the rating system in the site from Hugs to Votes, does that mean that we would soon have the ability to vote for a comment?! Like the "Like" feature for comments on Facebook?!
It's all speculation, but I have a feeling this might be the feature. Of course, Bossman can always surprise us. Who knows, we might have a Timeline in our Portfolio next year.
If all of the news articles started reaching 300+ comments, then we would need some fancy new things indeed. Perhaps such as a way to sort the various comments into the different conversations that have started up. For instance - maybe someone would want to be able to sort through and see only the comments that make up the Otaku Cage Match thread. Just sayin'.
Or even a simple thing such as a comment number on each comment would be interesting. In that case, there would be no disputing who had made the n'th comment. Although, it's really impossible to judge who made the 1957th comment, and it cannot truly be assumed that comment was made here on this post, as the comments apply to everywhere on the site, for this challenge.
Yaaay, another person agree's desu!!! *huggles*
But yesh, i hope it changes some people and shines a light on them lol. I hope the new feature will be a good one and useful to us. >_<
I agree! This kind of generosity of comments shouldn't be just because of a challenge and a threat; we should always wanna put comments for the good of our artist friends, to help them further their talent! D:
Anyway I'm glad we passed 2,000 though. I wonder what the new feature will be??
Lol, i know how you feel. But people shouldn't just do this for today, they should do it everyday so people will be more persuaded and confident to put up their works. I know i would if people would comment on my works. But only a select few does lol. ISH BECAUSE I SUCK LOL. >_<
Now we've reached 2000 comments today. Amazing!
My challenge is still up everyone! Does anyone wanna bring the comments in this announcement up to 1000 today? After all, no submission/news/announcement/post in theOtaku has ever reached 1000 comments in the entire history of this site, so wouldn't it be cool to reach that feat today as well?
A real hero quotes Dora. Liek a baws
Well, if my comment was really the one that broke the record, then let me say this at the risk of sounding cheesy:
Thank you. But let's all remember that this is a victory for everyone. So this award is not for me, but for the otakus around the world. As a young adventurous girl once said, and I quote, "We did it! We did it! Hooray!"
And for Bossman, we wouldn't be able to do it without you. Bossman...I need a tissue...Bossman, thank you. Thank you, Bossman!
yeah possibly but as far we all know the honor goes to you. Wear it with pride
Well, we're not sure who Commenter # 1958 is. And when I refreshed the backroom after I posted, it was already 1961. So it might be possible that someone else did the honors.
I had a feeling when I went to sleep last night that I would wake up to find the goal met or almost met. It amuses me that the feeling was right. hahaha
But its not over yet were gonna destroy the record.
OMFG guiz. GUIZ. THIS IS AMAZIN'. I'm glad I got to partcipate in at least a little of this. I made new franz today/last night! :)
Welp, it's official now. Goal has been met. Now you all just need to keep commenting and make sure the old record is totally blown out of the waters. lolol
nooooooooo you trooll
Fighter with the last comment
Congratulations everyone! We did it! And hopefully, this comment is the one that did it.
one more comment
Our local trollamani decided to start this last night. Though now I think the experiment is gonna be to see just how far members get past the goal. They're not even to the 12 hour mark and they're already there or almost there. lol
Almost there looking cool
started last night
I might be able to pull the last few on my own
This promises to be an amusing experiment! Or was maybe? Not sure when 24 hours from this post was or is.
30 I remember when there were 8
The cake is still a lie
Tonight around 10:00 or 11:00
It looks like we've almost got enough comments. How long is it till the 24 hours are up?

Welcome back to the show! It's time for Kat's Art Corner of Doom! MWAAHAHAAA!
So today, I'm going to school you all on cameras, specifically the really nice and swanky ones called DSLRs. DSLR stands for "digital single lens reflex". That refers to how the lens and the viewfinder share the same mirror and what you see in the viewfinder is what you're going to get on your film in the end! This is actually really important, and very useful! But this also means that since the viewfinder and lens share the same parts, when you close the shutter to take an image, you also can't look through your viewfinder anymore.
Wait, you wanted to know other things? Oh. Well um. I can't even guarantee the above is correct. I was tying to provide a plausible explanation for the phrase "single lens reflex"; I mean, how many of you actually knows what it means?
What? Oh - I'm being told I have to punt off the segment now. This has been Kat for the Art Corner of Doom, now back to Trip and Blank!
Now listen up everyone! Big band jazz is awesome. Why, do you ask? Because it just goddamned is, alright! It's just so much fun to dance to! It's also sexy. Mmmm, dat sax...ophone. '._.'

Thank you Katana and Sangome for a wonderful reboot of an Otaku classic! Just to make the day extra special, it's time to introduce a new show to the theOtaku Television Network's early morning line-up! You may have seen us in the sponsors for the Otaku Cage Match, and now we've got our brand new show! With your hosts Trip and Blank, it's...
TRIPBED AND BLANKROY IN THE MORNING!
We all know we're quite close to reaching the target. But let's set another more challenging target: let's drive the comments in this announcement to 1,000.
That would be really historic.
Well Blanky Boy, you are officially theOtaku's Butt Monkey. While we have that banana-shaped tiara fashioned for you, enjoy this virtual pie.

Oh wow, this is what I am talking about!! :D It is a pretty good idea, since so many members like to comment, praise or just talk with others here. I know myself how much I do it.
And I can't wait to see what this little praise is going to be. So everyone, lets do our best to particularly destroy that counter! >:3
...and now I can imagine that the comments are squished into a corner of the screen while Trip and Blank in the Morning comes on.

Otakus a great place for anime. I love aiming for pink trophies and that's kinda what helped my drawing improve. Also I was introduced to manga here and varied animus. I also like how you can create your own page. The worlds and rpg worlds. I love posting in rpg worlds.votaku is just a great place and helping people is the best
If things keep going the way they are, the record will be at least doubled, tripled, quadrupled, if not more, by the end of the 24 hours~!
Oh ouch, tough break for Blank. It's a good thing we've installed local teleportation systems so he didn't fry to death! That would be nasty...and I don't think anyone wants to feast on Kentucky Fried Blank...
"Blimey, this is getting a bit ruthless. And I've played Extreme Chess!"
"So then what's your problem?! Be a man!"
"Oh, I don't quite think that's going to be our answer."
"Rrrr...I'M TAKING YOU DOWN!"
Kanji's all fired up! He's charging forward, with his desk chair at the ready and - woah wait, a desk chair?!
"A desk chair?!"
With a mighty swing, Kanji's taken the Doctor by surprise! But this is the man who's been punched by a robot, an archeologist, and a cricket bat - to the face! I'm pretty sure a desk chair is no prob -
"No problem for the Doctor!"
And the Time Lord's back up! Geezus - is there anything that's going to get this match to end?
Ha were looking good

That'd be kinda tacky. =/
It is this type of comment activity that Ichigo and Timey have been yearning to have for months already. Anyone wanna "occupy" the podcast?

Good point. But, I do want to see how many we can get. IT would be awesome if they did this next year. I'm always up for a good challenge~~
We'd be able to beat 2900 in about four hours xD Not twelve. We'll hit 9000 in twelve hours at this rate!
Yeah, it's all of us xD
*bows* Glad to be of service.
It's made theO come back to life~~
I think I lost track about five comments ago. :D
and if we continue to stand together and lend a hand, im sure we will go over 1956 or whatever the number is. if it was 2900, im sure we would beat that in 12 hours using the same method: teamwork.

I actually thought that number was very low for how many members we have on this site. I believe strongly that that will be beaten by noon 12/30/11. With everyone pitching in for some comments in every category there is no way we CAN'T beat it! I am just curious to why we are able to scroll all wallpapers, ecards, fanart, and such now? When did that happen?
Anyway, keep up the great work everyone!
I actually forgot to sign into my Twitter account earlier because of all the time I spent here. However, looking at the comments everywhere being refreshed is just like being signed in over there!
Except, I follow the news site Al Jazeera English and CERN and CNN. Who wants to be Al Jazeera? Anyone? C'mon, if that's not your style, than you can pretend to be The Economist and post economic updates on why Rosario + Vampire threatens Greece's economy.
All according to plan.
Like wise ^^
Nice to see you again
A comment slam? That sounds fun. But personally, I'll call this a "comment bomb", especially when you consider who's in my avatar. And something tells me people are going to "bomb" the comments even further by the end of the day.
For the sake of fun, you might also want to present a graph later on showing how much the comments have risen by the hour.
Aaah, I'm so curious too! And only 700?! Yess. When did the event start, anyways? I don't think it was going on all day where I live.
True true. It's very fun. Good way to meet new people.
I'm sooo curious about what it is. I have no doubt that we'll make it. We only have like 700 more to go I think~
I think they did, since it's been so long since we've had so many comments. Lately, theO has been very dead. I'm glad to see something like this go on, it's been a lot of fun.
My question is if they actully thought this would be a chalange for us.
Awesome!! WE BETTER GET THIS SPECIAL FEATURE! I crave it madly.
This thing. This is the best thing.
Well gee 'gome, I'm not sure. I'm not exactly the best person when it comes to clean-up jobs. Let's see if we can...*pulls level* SPICE THIS MATCH UP!
Now don't be alarmed folks, our changes to the cage aren't going to harm our contestants! We've merely flooded and frozen the arena, turning it into an ice rink! Who can get a grip and stay on top?
"I wear mufflers now, mufflers are cool."
Huh, it seems Bowtie-san - err, the Doctor, came prepared!
And he does look ever-so-dashing in that hat, gotta say...mmm...Uh - wait, what? Oh. Cage matches or...whatever.
"I DON'T KNOW AGI THIS ISN'T FAIR"
Oh dear, it seems that Kanji is getting a bit flustered at his lack of tract - OOF, right down on his face, too!
"Woah...what...when did it snow...?"
Woah! And in a turn of events, it seems Blank's back in the match! With a frozen arena floor and all three contenders back in the game, where's this Cage Match gonna head?
Haha your gonna help us too?
AND THEY'RE OFF! Kanji starts off smacking Blank upside the head with a wet noodle, successfully knocking him flat on his face!
"This is SO not cultured..."
And oh! What's this? Bowtie-san leaps in and...gives Kanji a bowtie and a fez?
"They're cool! You'll look fashionable! Girls will love you and guys will love to be you!"
"Guys will love me? You sayin' I like dudes?"
And then there's a wacky chase scene!
"WAIT NO COME BACK I LOVE WOMEN"
"THIS IS SO NOT COOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLL!!!!"
*facepalms* We're not missing a beat, are we, Kat? And I can see Blank is still flat on his face...
"Guys can you help me up. I thought this was a good idea."
Anytime! We're already at 1118 comments!
True dat. Sparkling more than Edward Cullen on a sunny morning.
Almost there, TheO!
Basically, we need to get over 1958 comments made on theOtaku, all together, to beat the most comments we had at the start of the year. Make sense?
We shall sparkle like no one has ever sparkled before. We Are Legion. We Are Otaku.
It was called a bingo when all the news posts on the site were from the same day. I once made a comic called The 12 Days of myO and day ten was "ten posts per Bingo". xD
Ill check that out myself
Indeed I am. In fact, I'm finally checking out the second page in the fan art nearly 15 minutes later. I see a great Vampire Hunter D picture by E1L03wy. Man, this would look amazing framed and on my wall.
Those dang commies. Let's protest the streets fashioning anti-globalization and inequality picket signs. With glitter and anime drawings on the margins.
Are you having a hard time waking up in the morning? Is it a drag to drag yourself out of bed? Do you just wish there was someone like you awake at 5am as you're ready for your morning commute?
WELL NOT ANYMORE! We've got theTaco Morning Show! Your hosts Tripbed and Blankroy will perkily guide your way through the morning, and help you beat those morning grogs!
theTaco Morning Show also features other segments, such as Shakespeare in the Park. Watch Ducky teach ducks how to recite the words of the Bard! If that's not your thing, there's Kat's Art Corner of Doom, wherein our resident obnoxious art student spews utter nonsense on topics very few care about. Grab a stool and get baking with Kei, who won't let you leave until you've eaten your brownies! There's also a special guest star, a TV showing Rocket Power!
Catch all of these and more on channel 3.14, starting at 4am!
I have to get back to talking in general, I got very distracted >__>
They're behind everything. They own our souls and will sell it back to us piece by piece as reasonable prices, too. (Well, provided you're part of the 1%).
And in this corner, weighing in at -349840 pounds, is Blank!
I knew you were one skinny mofo but dayyyyummm boy. Go and eat some lard before you vanish for good.
I have to think up more motivational quotes or else I'll run out soon.
What the heck did Bossman call it when all the front page articles were all new items, back on the older version? Was it a strike? Or was it bingo, which doesn't sound right (the thought alone makes my hair stink and eyes hurt).
958 more to go. Damn we work fast xD
oh yeah we were gonna smash the record. Anyway I'm still making lots of progress
992, we're already so clooose! >__<
lol haha, well I do enjoy those quizzes :D
Are you serious?
So yeah, welcome back, fans! It's been a long time, has it not? Lots of things have changed since... *ruffles papers* 2006. New layout, new codename, new people. This should prove to be an interesting fight indeed.
Anyway! Onto the match! IN THIS CORNER, weighing in at 150 lbs, is the infamous Kanji Tatsumi, who does NOT like dudes!
Second, meandering in at...a weight that I cannot read and seems to fluctuate, is the Eleventh Doctor, AKA Bowtie-san!
And in this corner, weighing in at -349840 pounds, is Blank! He also wants you to know that he's going to turn you all into yogurt!
AND NOW FOR A BREAK FROM OUR SPONSORS
Dang, I knew it. I bet SOPA was behind this as well.
We have 1,000 to go. O__o
We lost some stuff in the change, like quizzes too. That had to be redone and put back up. And of course people had to start submitting quizzes again so we'd actually have some. XD
I think the Feds and The Man ordered the Cosplay taken down. It threatened to undermine the capitalist order, but theO didn't do it fast enough and now we're seeing the results: everyone everywhere is occupying everything on behalf of the 99% who didn't look good in cosplay.
Yes, that sounds right.
I see. I thought it had something to do with condensing the site, but this makes more sense lol.
We should just take it easy since were this close
We had cosplay. It wasn't transfered over to the new version when we changed though. Now people just post stuff like that on their personal worlds.
Long as you contributed your still part of the team.
This! I remember this!
Also, the Taco Dome is far superior to the Thunder Dome.
Hey, I pretend to know stuff, so that might make me a candidate to start up a conversation about...stuff. Actually, this Fan Art tab has been open for hours now, so I really should check it now and pretend I know something about art over there, too!
Ah yes, that is a worthy source of distraction indeed! I have this thing for saving the world, though...! And skydiving in SS is just so addicting. I absolutely love flying around...
Good God, I spent roughly 2 hours typing out a mere 3 comment-replies! But when you get great comments, it can't be helped. Now, onto the fan art!
WEEEEEEEEELCOME TO OTAKU CAGE MATCH! 2011 EDITION!
Howdy folks, and welcome to the revival of Otaku Cage Match! I'm your host, Katana! Now, I understand there are some of you too young in the crowd to remember this festival of fan wank and violence, so I'm just going to give a simple explanation...well, it's exactly that! In this cage, pitted here in our arena here at theTaco Dome, we'll throw fictional characters - or sometimes real people! - against each other, and see who comes out on top!
I'm going to pass this over to my co-host, Sangome, and we can get the ball rolling. 'gome?
This is kind of nice, I am usually the silent observer with a few close knit friends on this site, rarely do I comment out in the open like this.
I remember the old gray Otaku too, good ol' days. Random question: didn't there used to be a cosplay catergory too? Wonder why it got taken down..
Almost a thousand! *claps excitedly*
We can do this! >:D
Aww, let's keep up the momentum, everyone! I'm pretty positive we'll beat this record~!
well this seems like it will be fun
I wish people could see the glory days of the site, back in the grey version, when there'd be comments on All the News Posts and random conversations back and forth.
I remember that. I also remember the times I got to step in and make people behave when it got out of hand. XD
870 comments people! *claps*

Amazing! C'mon everyone let's beat this record!
Six-year-olds and nuclear weapons: a combination that just can't be beat.
Skyward Sword~ I need to play more of it. Mario Kart 7 keeps distracting me. xD
It is at least nice to see members having some plain old silly fun around here. :)
This, a thousand times over. I wish people could see the glory days of the site, back in the grey version, when there'd be comments on All the News Posts and random conversations back and forth. Maybe we can go through like a renaissance or something. A comment renaissance!
aww, bye bye
Over 800 people keep going
We're getting there pretty fast, since this has only been going on for an hour and a half~
sounds good to me~
I have no idea. Might stay home or go out. Depends on whether people come over or not. Otherwise, I'll watch The Twilight Zone marathon on New Years day lol good stuff.
sorry i have to good laters & peace out hahahahahahaha ^_^
Thats cool. So how are you gonna spend New Years?
Haha, glad you had a great one dude!
Fantastic! Our family traditions were observed, and I came away with LoZ, Skyward Sword. I am, truth be told, addicted to it, now.
It was alright. Did nothing really. I don't really ask for gifts, but I spent time with family so that was important.
hahahaha u seem nice ima be friends with u ^.^
nice to meet you as well :D
It does and how was yours
hi nice to meet u ^_^
Nice, bet it keeps you up at night playing haha. Glad your holiday was a good one.
Call of Duty:Mw3
Nice. Got any games? I'm not a gamer so I have no knowledge of that subject.
Yeah it was pretty good. Got ze Xbawks
Were close too we just need one more surge
How was everyone's Christmas/Hanukkah/whatever holiday you celebrate? Pretty good?
It SUCKS :/
And yeah things slowed down heavily
Things are slowin' down~~~
Wow I wanna go to one of those sooner or later.
I'd be impressed if we could make that~
I'm gonna try to get back at it, too o3o
I'm counting the day down this year. One day closer to the anime convention.

Agreed, I really like seeing everyone just goofing off. Especially this late at night (for me, anyway).
I hope these all count! According to the backroom counter they do...
"You won't like me when I'm psychoanalyzed."
I'm not sure what the criteria is for which comments won't count. Adam hasn't clarified that with me yet. (totally asked him, he just hasn't answered yet. lol)
Your name ends with a k. And my name starts with a K! We're on a friggin' roll here!
Darn right they do.
All of these comments surely embody this site's "high quality" standards.
Sí, es clásico.
Now why aren't we up to 9,000 now? C'mon TheO, I know y'all have it in you!
in that case I would like to fill out an application
Yeah, it was a pretty obvious move. But a classic, no?
Oh I'm totally a troll, just like Adam. It's like a requirement if you want to work here. :D

And yet you commented just now. ;p
But I cannot comment on things when I feel forced.
You heard snow fox....
9000 PEOPLE! IT HAS TO BE OVER THAT!
*shot and maimed*
I'm a veggie, dawg (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Was wondering if someone was going to make that reference.
So you want moar comments?
Watch this wolf pup:
let the adorableness continue.
Goggalor (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
So the goal here is to COMMENT ON ALL THE THINGS. Got it.
The Silent (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Can't stop until it's over 9,000!!
im back on it though lol
You have 24 hours so it's not like we have to hit the mark asap. At least not at this rate. lawl.
I wish I had another Dollars member

Much better way to spend your time o__O
Man I want a donut.
B( I was trying to get that. You brat. jk
When I first saw this I thought it had to be in this comment box and I wondered if that many would break it. LOL
100th comment get~
lol I was eating donuts
I need to as well. I've been typing long comments so I haven't been able to comment as much.
I gotta speed my pace back up again

"I get on the Otaku whenever I'm bored and nothing good is on the TV."
QUBO is showing He-Man & the Masters of the Universe right now. Why are you on TheO?
lol same here. I've been an insomniac since middle school, but now that I have a laptop, I've been getting on TheO a lot more. Can someone say internet hermit? :B lmao
It's getting pretty fast now~~
So what kind of coffee do you want?
Don't try to sound tough, you sissy.
Oh, coming right up, madam.
>Cream and sugar...?
What are you, Nanako?
DADDY I WANT IT BLACK
I think I earned a donut break you guys pick up my slack
I predict that submissions are gonna get tons of comments in the next 24 hours. Which is a good thing, there are a lot of nice ones up.
Haha guess so. It's winter break so I've been staying up pretty late this past week lately XD.
We're over 500 now! :D

STICK YOUR HAND INTO THE TV DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT
This is pretty interesting. Have nothing else better to do at 12:33 am. Keep at it people.
Senior Otaku | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Dang, we're doing pretty good! I swear I saw the number jump from 200 to 400+ in literally less than 3 minutes!!
Keep going, everyone! :D
I think I'm just going to spend this time quoting the Persona 4 comic dub.
You have become friends Yosuke! Yosuke will now DIE FOR YOU.
I WOULD LIKE EVERYONE TO KNOW YOU ARE ALL VEREH CLASSY PEOPLE. AND YOUR MOTHERS ARE TOO.
Haha. 442. C'mon people >:D

awwww.....I was just going to spam people....That foils my plans... DX
Oh and to sum this up:
theOtaku.com's First-Ever 24 Hour Comment Slam - Now Live!
Current Progress: 438/1,958 (What's Going On?!?!?!?!?!?)
It's real name is:
Adam trolls theOtaku yet again!
Scratch that. We're above 400 XD
This is an interesting challenge. I think things like this will help bring theO back to life and bring us Otakus a little closer, ya know? It makes it easier for us to make new friends, I think. I'm very curious about this new feature!
At this rate we'll surpass that easily. lawl
Otakuite+ | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Well i might as well start commenting
Otakuite++ | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
I almost didn't notice this post even though this site is my homepage lol. I'm a glad I did, though. This sounds interesting.
Otaku Eternal | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Well, things'll be pretty neat either way XD Do enough comments, we'll be getting buddies and a cool new feature, and even if not we'll still love eachother~
True that c: Build comments, comments lead to conversations and convos lead to friends and (possibly) the new feature<33
Look in your backroom, you can see the current progress in the notification there.
Vagrant AI (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
The number to shoot for should've been 2012 'cause derp derp the New Year is coming.
I DON'T THINK IT IS
I'm having fun, too. But I'm always very determined and eager to get things done as fast as possible, so I'm a little disappointed we're not even at 400 yet xD
IS MY MAGICAL DUST NOT WORKING? D:
So what color is YOUR poo first thing in the morning? :D
We'll get it done so no worries and I'm having fun. Finally getting a chance to act like The Dollars and post random nice things on people's guestbooks
Will we be updated on how many comments there are thus far?
Not sure if that question was asked
Local Tales Nerd (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Ooooh, that evil part is scary but hopefully we can hit the mark so that evilness doesn't happen. :3
At the moment I'm typing this, the Backroom claims we're at 383/1,958 so far. (edit: 393/1,958 right after I posted. Dang)
It seems to be going up quite a bit every few minutes or so.
Let's do this thing!
We need things to go faster cause, if we don't get this done, I'll cry *bricked* I won't cry, but it will be disappointing xD
Hey, that's alright. Great way to make a friend and build some comments, eh?
Val's chibi kitty (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
OMG C'MON GUYS WE GOTTA SHOW ADAM WE CAN PWN OUR FORMER SELVES!!!!
*fervently goes to comment on anything she hasn't commented on yet in her backroom*
Roger that! OR NOT, but hey, win-win situation either way |D Oh hi, I am attempting to chat with people I don't know |D
I AM GONNA TRY THAT
It is going pretty fast, but I think it could be faster *bricked*
C'MON GUISE. YOOH CAN DO IT. KATTY BELIEVES YOOH. *spread magical dust*
Once more and more people join in its gonna move blindingly fast. We might even beat the limit by another 1000.
Its faster than I thought it would be. lol
Come on people, work faster! *shot*

Comment anywhere on theOtaku
lets work on that then.
I-I'll try my best to help out~ Kinda confused though, do we comment here or what? ^^;;
Some of these eCards could totally go for some more commenting/positive feedback. :)
I felt it was moving slow, actually >__>
But I guess that is some pretty awesome speed xD
We're already almost in the 300's. DANG PEOPLE.
I am very pleased with this~<3 I think this'll be the perfect opportunity to make TheO an
even closer community(with everyone getting to know eachother a bit more), plus a lot of people who haven't been getting comments on stuff can maybe even get more feedback c:
This is going to be loads of fun~
I CAN FEEL THE FRIENDSHIP!!! Yay!
This is gonna get done FAST XD
Digital Neko (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
Haha, youtube XD Well, I certainly don't want any features taken away... =O_O;= I'll do my best to contribute to the comments =^_^;=
Just comment on my stuff and i'll reply back. Easy way to get comments. lol
Yeah it is. I think im in the 30s with comments now.
This actually is a great opportunity to make some new friends. :)
Yes, you will make a fine addition, indeed.
I'm EXTRAORDINARILY classy! *puts on sunglasses* aww yeah!
LOL in the 100s already were gonna pass with flying colors. No players are getting erased today.
I have no idea who you are, BUT THAT WAS GLORIOUS.
I could always use more classy friends.
You just gotta post comments! Comment comment comment yay!
That's all there is to it really!
I guess ill hit up members I havent met yet and make some friends
It is. I'm curious to see who's gonna win~
I've gone up 1000+ comments in a few weeks, so I think I can manage pretty easy XD
Though portfolios are pains cause they lag sooo much xD
this challenge is actually a breeze for us
Lots of talking always gets my comments uber high, fast.
I've been commenting all day everyday. BRING IT ON. LETS KEEP TALKING. I'LL START WITH YOUR PORTFOLIO, YOU START WITH MINE.
COME AT ME, THEO.
I got this.
Maybe if I talk with someone it'll go faster!
BUT I BARELY KNOW PEOPLE!
Who wants to be friends with a slightly obnoxious female who claims to be classy?!?!
probably no one
I am Delin! (Otaku Eternal) | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply

Don't lose the moon while counting the stars
So guys how about dat Kenshin hmmm?
Sounds like a plan
I always manage to find something to say. IF WE KEEP TALKING TO EACH OTHER WE CAN WIN.
That little drawing you used, is perfect for this. xD
Thats the spirit. Go now in the name of HONAAAAAHHH

So, comment on pretty much anything on this site? Hmm, that's quite a task, but given how prolific some of these people are, I think it can be done! Let's see what I can do, now.
Watch me go...here I go now...yup...
I find this challenge to be interesting and I shall contribute to it with teh HONAH. It'll be interesting to see if we make it! Mainly 'cause I wanna see the new feature. So this better work!
Grand Otaku | Posted 12/29/11 | Reply
This'll be a cake walk!
Haha, those stick figure meme's are fun to use.
We can do it BECAUSE WERE THE DOLLARS
Just remember Adam, you take a feature away... I know where you live...
I kid on that but I am terribly curious to see what the new comment thing is you are talking about.
This sounds fun...i'll try my best to comment but sometimes I just have nothing to say. xD
LOL feel the love XD! I'll do my best to spread the love XD.
Haha, this seems interesting. I hope they don't take away the new feature of those tabs in our portfolio. *runs off to make comments*
This seems like fun XD
Complete the mission or face erasure
