Emergency Aid

I think this one here says it all, in a far more entertaining way.

Well. I guess that's that then.

Alas, I'm not sure that I fully get the joke here, and I'd hate to ask you to ruin it by explaining it, but I needed some sort of placemark for the banter between you and Dwip over in the Why I Can't Vote For Obama thread but I had nothing of real worth to contribute there this time, so... ;)

It WOULD help if we could make the Recent Comments box contain more comments ala the Recent Images box, yes.

Also missed the joke.

       
I must be the only person here who got the message :)

Seemed obvious to me that the guy, and we assume his kid, showed up at the welfare office asking for help. The counter guy says no way, you don't qualify, apply for emergency aid instead. So he gets sent there. And joins the conga line celebrating their "emergency" situations together.

The site the comic comes from has a bit of a dark humor streak which takes time to appreciate. And the conga line thing has been a running gag now for a few strips.

       
That makes somewhat more sense now.

Also, on the topic of the recent comments box, how rough would it be to add the commenter's name to the comment? Like, "Dwip on Emergency Aid" or what have you. Be kinda handy.

       
It wouldn't be especially rough. There's just not a lot of space over there, ya know? I'd have to cut back the width here in the main window a tad to make room to put that. Though you do realize that if you hover over it, you'll see who posted the comment? :)

As I decry the lack of a "transition from cave pieces to Ayleid ruin pieces".

       
Agreed, that does make more sense now, it was the conga line that was throwing me. *shrug*

As for the recent comments list, I already knew about the hover thing, but when you and Dwip (and Regina today) start really going at it, being able to see only the last 5 comments listed means I'm missing stuff and have no way of knowing (short of keeping a RSS reader open) if I'm missing comments to other posts that are just not showing up there anymore. For myself, I use Thunderbird to check RSS feeds and it seems to only catch the last 10 new entries to a feed (at least for most feeds, so maybe it's a setting from the feed's server...) when I first open it, so, on a really busy day (like today) even it gets blown away if I didn't already have it open when most of them came in. So, while adding the comment posted by name would be nice, I'd be thrilled to see the list simply expanded to the last 10 or so instead. (Ideally, I'd like to see it work like the recent post box in QSFP, but we've already discussed that one before and I understand your reasons and look forward to when your future plans have time to come to fruition.)

       
Didn't even realize it was a conga line, myself.

Forgot about the hover thing. Handy, although pretty much what Conner said. Either a last 10 comments box, or something like how the images box works, would be slightly more wieldy.

And doing cave to Ayleid is pretty hard, although I think there's a piece that got used in...Veyond? The ruin you go to during that mage quest where you have to zot the pillar to make the stairs open. SE of Cheydinhal somewhere. Sideways Cave and the Mehrunes Razor dungeon are also somewhat helpful, although as best I can figure it basically comes down to "fake something." The big outdoor arches can be fairly handy, as are rocks and Ayleid bricks.
