have not pressed the button in over 3 years, avatars all turned into biebers since friday, on 3 devices. Escapist tech support seems to not bother responding.

This is NOT an adblock issue as i do not use adblock on the escapist.

Huh...odd.

Also, Bieber isn't funny anymore. Can we have some other young tosser to turn into?

I have a better suggestion! How about the George Tekei "Oh My" gif instead? That would be awesomely hilarious.

Yeah, pay that.

(Though, bit off Takei after getting involved in the boycott Indiana thing, and calling for people to buy his stuff instead)

Do the days stack up if you click multiple times? I'm curious but too scared to try.
Nope.

<..>

Honest.

EDIT - In response to Sky's query I am unaffected.

I believe they don't but the timer resets, so it'd be 24 hours after the last click.

Staff aren't in the office on weekends.

So how many people in this thread are actually affected? Can you PM me or quote me so I can list your names down and help chase the techies down for you?

It's the great Biebering of 2015!
Quick hide under your desk and cover your head, that should save you!

[sub](I have not been affected and I hope I haven't made myself a target by saying so, but I wonder what it is that's getting people if it's not the red button).[/sub]

I definitely agree. Uncle George would be a much more welcome sight.

I thought tech support has to be in one form or another on all the time considering site has to be run all the time, but fair enough, that makes sense.

Looks like they have fixed for me now. It seems it has worked for others too as the first thing in a group chat is "I'm free! My terrible curse has been lifted! No more horrible Bieber!"

Thanks for the response and solving the issue! I can now finally quickly identify posters by avatars again.

Step 0: If you haven't pressed the button yet, then you must press the button...
Step 1: If you pressed the button, then you must press it again...
Step 2: If you have pressed the button again, then you must press it again...
Step 3: Repeat Step 2 663 times...
Step 4: Wait between 24-48 hours...
Step 5: Keep Escapist-ing...

After Step 5, you should get two [secret] messages telling you that you passed the test... If those messages do not say that, then repeat Steps 1 through 5 until you do...

Thank you and have a nice Escapist day!

Having an inexplicable avatar change anyway, I found myself compelled to press the big red button.
Such a glorious, big, shiny, red button.
Reminds me of Ratchet and Clank.

Is this another anti-adblock measure, or just some sniggering troglodyte's idea of comedy? And if it is an anti-adblock measure, could somebody post a link to my real avatar so I can get a copy of it before I leave?
Insulting language AND a tacit admission of using Adblock, both in the same post?
You're going places OP. Keep it up.

Some years ago, I too saw the button. Being a red button, that it would be pressed was never in question. It caught me that day, a victim of my own hubris. No man can wantonly press red buttons without consequence. It is a valuable lesson for Escapists, Presidents of nuclear states and anyone in a Tom Clancy novel.

Red Button bad, do not press, it makes bad for many hours. I've actually hit it... twice. First time, didn't know what it was. Second time, somebody sat up a bubble popper game looking thing, and I had a derp moment and clicked a thing to see what would happen. Bad happened.

Moral of the story; red buttons are bad, and read threads before clicking anything in the op, just in case. Also, don't have dumb moments. Ever. That last one probably won't work.
On other hand, spinning button good.




Spinning button make world funny.
Oh my Lord and to think I just pressed it thinking nothing would happen! That's the funniest thing that's happened to me all day!
