No-one noticed the bar moved for a whole day! For that reason alone, I better get the bar moving a little faster than that. Life's been busy the past couple of months but I think I still have a handle on things.

84.5%

Neat, it went up an entire percent and a half. You rarely see that at this stage.

Another small sneaky update!

+0.25% brings us to 86.25%!

89%

By the way... You're not going to have signposts with that custom portrait in this hold, are you? With all due respect, it just clashes too much with the DROD art style and I'd rather just look at Beethro's face.

Anyway, yeah. 89%

I'm feeling real generous today, and I always appreciate attention to obscure or tangential detail, so I'll go ahead and drop a tiny little confirmation in this thread just to keep stringing things along.

There will not be signposts with the custom portrait from Terrakept Resonant / Finding the First Truth in Treacle Stew.



May this tidbit serve you well!

90%! All we need to do now to hit 100% is sneakily move the decimal point before the next update, then put it back afterwards!

A hold slightly more than nine times the size? Meh, I've seen bigger.

But have you seen a hold that's nine times the size of itself? I don't think I've seen anything that's even as little as twice its own size!

We wouldn't need to do this if the one responsible for updating the Bar would just announce when it progresses.

Or better still, automate the notification process entirely.

Until then, it falls to me to say 91%.

Now where would the fun in that be? It's called "Watch the Bar", not "Listen to the Bar's Proclamations". :)

Technically, we get all the information we need just by looking at the bar firsthand. But by removing the delay between update and post, we'd have a more accurate historical record for future generations.

Since I had to notice that the bar was at 93%, it seems we're going with the imperfect record-by-hand technique. I guess we'll never know the exact millisecond it changed.

If a bar grows in a forum and no one is around to see it, does it make a light?

You can't just edit your post to add an update on the Bar's Status. Only a completely new post turns the folder on the homepage red.

Is that .33 that appeared after the 95 just shorthand for an infinite number of 3s?

What an unsightly percentage. Was this progress made in such a quick burst that there was no point when you could have snapshotted it on a prettier number?

To nitpick, 1/3 is not a perfect number, but technically 33.333333333333... etc percent, and I think that was what the bar is actually at - 33% increase is probably just a truncation to save the data/number of floating point bytes the script uses

Clearly the only solution is to change the bar display to use base 3.
