can confirm, github has made the mistake of giving me a new component of my profile page to customize

github uses a comment in the default generated README.md to suggest you could put your pronouns here

good news, images work (add the image in an issue draft or whatever, then copy/paste the markdown)

time to go find some geocities-era stuff

but actually though what should I do with this arbitrary markdown box on my profile

(please don't harass the user who did this, btw. shouldn't have to say this but, well, I also shouldn't have to say that sometimes I make jokes on the internet and people don't have to "fix" them)

a joke? on the professional github website dot gov? how DARE you

github support replied to my feedback, saying:

"That is... quite the drive-by PR."

Show thread

quine and I were continuing to discuss this and they pointed out to me that there are likely users on github who are younger than my github account is

@iliana oh my god i laughed at this twice because it took me a second to get "build: passing"

@riking @monorail I really enjoy how subtle this joke is and it doesn't even mean anything

@iliana @riking @monorail I see the repository but it's not on your profile and I don't see anywhere to make one on mine

I guess they're a/b testing again

@iliana oh my god

i want to do this but don't want to use github more

@iliana serious coders must be stern and NEVER laugh. I was taught this by my father

@callie @iliana I refuse on general principles to not add smartass remarks to commit messages and stuff.

@DizzyHMuffin
@callie @iliana

Starting with the repository name. What good is a repo if its name isn't a pun?

Kink, lewd, shitpost, derailing 

@iliana I can't believe someone would open an issue against your personal readme???

@hope @iliana

who is this person and how in the world do they have the time, in twenty twenty, to worry about this

@iliana I just want to day that your ongoing bizarre love/hate/hack experiences with Github bring me so much joy

@iliana feels like it ought not to be possible to fork a profile repo?

@Eden yep, already sent github feedback on that

(along with the lovely haha.business screenshot)

@iliana how do they even find your repo to complain on???

@iliana wow

I guess I should just delete all my repos then since I'm clearly doing it wrong by having fun

@iliana I love how they logged in 2 years after their last commit to file this bug report as well github.com/DewWisp?tab=reposit

@iliana I cannot fathom one entire thing about this user's brain

@iliana Oh my god, you are a genius. Can I stole you that idea?

@iliana This is amazing. I kind of want to do something similar.

@iliana time to hook up a smart blanket to get those real time coverage stats
