The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

What can I say? It doesn't fit above, put it here. Also the location of board rules/info.

I met someone pretty interesting yesterday. His name is Selig, which is unusual, and he was impressed that I knew how to pronounce it in German. He's not a conlanger, but he's a fellow linguistics major and when I told him that I was a conlanger, he found that to be so fascinating and asked me many questions about Lihmelinyan. I even showed him the thread for it here. So I might have someone to bounce conlanging ideas off of. And who knows, maybe I could encourage him to try conlanging [:D]
Needless to say I have a little bit of a crush [:$]
Don't live to conlang; conlang to live.

So I wasn't able to access the board for the past two days, essentially. I kept getting an error message. People on the Discord server have told me I wasn't alone. Now that I can access the board again, though, there's text like this everywhere:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/vendor/twig/twig/lib/Twig/Extension/Core.php on line 1275: count(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable

Is everything alright?
Edit: I checked immediately after posting this, and the weird bold text seems to have disappeared.

I see them everywhere as well.

I was just about to say something similar, but I've been away from my laptop for a couple of days, so assumed it was just an issue on my phone.
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.
Just one time.

I just noticed it not working this morning, don't know if I even checked yesterday. They're definitely having some problems. My life feels empty when I can't come here [:(]

Oh, what a relief. I haven't tried from home in about a week. I tried to access from work and got those same messages.
I thought maybe it was a work-related interruption/blockade.

But I can get behind Ƕ.
Isn't this the same video? It's at a different URL, but it seems to be the same, right?

What measures have been put in place to ensure the board doesn't go down like that again?

I'm not even really familiar with any of his work, but I was still shocked to hear of his passing earlier today. I think that speaks to how much of an impact he made on popular culture.

Interesting question!

No, I don't personally believe in ghosts, at least not in the usual sense.

No.

I mean, I do if I've watched a horror movie before bed, but otherwise no.

Sadly, I don’t believe in ghosts. If I did, that would probably mean I possessed the suspension of disbelief necessary to hold out hope for an afterlife, something I am - unfortunately - incapable of.
