I posted a link to Twitter last night, but my new game is up.

I got one that had more than five answers, with the extra answers being repeated from the first five. They were all capable of being selected, and when I picked the correct one, the extra ones were also highlighted (I couldn't screencap that, it went to the next one too fast). And the next one had ten answers, too.

Hmmmmmmmmm, okay. Looking into this. I'm not entirely sure how this happened, but I'll try to prevent it.

Okay, tried a couple of different tactics, I think I have it fixed. Tests appreciated.

(The glitch would have showed up the first time the random number would be a round you already played. If you play like 20 rounds without seeing that, you're likely in the clear.)

I've had several rounds where there is no correct answer. This is on an iphone, using safari

I'm 90% sure that's old JavaScript you're running, cause I'm pretty sure I fixed that. Try a refresh.

Just tried it out, played 30 rounds with no bugs. Seems fixed.

I guess I won? Good for a laugh. I didn't have any real problems with it besides a couple that had dupes of the same answer. I'm at my work computer running chrome on a windows 10 computer.

autocompletes for "Is God a" and and "Is the mo" seem humorously counter intuitive.

Do I just post them here?

how should you
best dog
kinds of u
best place to be
anime where a
video game where
tv show where
how to stop being

in general the formula of "X where" is pretty good since you can just type a letter after where and get new strange results. try this with movie, or vine or video game (video game where you, and then a letter)

I wonder how popular these are.  I was talking to an acquaintance of mine and I noticed they had this game open in a tab. When I asked about it, they were familiar with both it and damn.dog but had never heard of the F Plus. That was quite a surprise!

EDIT: Oh, this explains it.

Both damn.dog and idiots.win have huge peaks and valleys in traffic. They've both seen days of more than half a million games played in a 24 hour period, and they can both flatline. Although, damn.dog is the more popular game, so it's low point is probably around 1,500 sessions, idiots.win can get down to about 200 sessions.

It's worth mentioning that basically ALL of this traffic, in both cases, is direct. There's a couple subreddits that must be bringing some people in, but basically all of the people playing the game are doing so because they typed my dumb url into their browser. Which is nice, but I'm guessing that means most of this traffic is still based on YouTube.... Mixed emotions on that fact.

ACTUALLY, while we're talking about it, does anyone know if PewDiePie (or someone similar) did a video on idiots.win on February 8th? There's a huge spike there, and it can't be explained by the videos I'm seeing in doing a cursory search.

That actually might have been me if it was the 8th. I posted idiots.win to a popular askreddit thread that day and it got a lot of attention.

After waking up this morning to find out that a react video was trending on YouTube, I changed the hamburger icons on both idiots.win and damn.dog to a (?) icon. Because clearly the reason that none of these YouTubers are doing even the slightest hint of attribution of the project is because the icon for learning that was unclear.

Right?

HI WE WANTED TO COPYRIGHT THE WORD "REACT" SO WE COULD MAKE MONEY OFF OF THE VERY CONCEPT OF "REACTING TO A THING"

NO WE WON'T CREDIT YOU FOR YOUR GAME. THAT WOULD BE STUPID.

JUST DON'T REACT TO IT OR WE'LL SUE YOUR ASS.
