What does the "Surprise me. (Fun mode.)" setting do?

    Can anyone tell me what the "Surprise me. (Fun mode.)" setting on the "Personal Settings" do? I cant find any documentation on it.

  2. I could tell you, but it wouldn't be a surprise, nor would it be fun. ;)

  3. And we can all not read about it here ... lol :D

  4. I turned it on a while ago.

    Nothing yet.

    Nothing for me either. And i can't help but feel a tiny bit suspicious about a site encouraging you to tick a box but not telling you what the control actually does (if anything).

  6. A quote from the link TT supplied...
    " If you’re open to new things and serendipitity in your blogging life try leaving it on as you go about your normal blogging activities of posting, commenting, checking your stats, and such, and see what pops up."

    Okay I did it a while ago, was curious. It's safe, it's not going to hurt you. It's silly fun.

    Oh all right then. I'll leave it on. For a while. As long as it doesn't come and eat my blog. Or me. Or my puppy. Although he's bad, so that might be ok.

  8. Wait you're not my next door neighbor who has their puppy out right now and it's barking it's head off since 5:30 am?

    OMG, it that you who lives next door and keeps throwing shoes and underwear over the fence? :)

  10. Still nothing

    I wonder if pop-up blockers spoil its effect(s)? If so i'm probably rather glad.

    (Although i can't help feeling we're all part of some giant social experiment)!

  12. It just did something.

    MEH.

  13. @severin Okay that might be me.
    And yes we are a giant social experiment but I'm not sure who the leader is yet.

    @ian it's subtle.

    @bats0711 Well you're not having the underwear back!

    And if it's subtle, well it'll go straight over my head because i'm a guy.

  15. @Bats
    Is there still a silly video? Two men dancing - one in the air and the other on a car hood? Or is this "fun feature" no longer operating?

  16. @TT I've seen it before, haven't seen it since. Lots of fun things happen that I'm not expecting.

    @Severin keep the underwear and you're screwed then! ;)

  17. Well, this thread is surprising at least.

    So is our garden!

  19. Ya it's always fun to open a thread and discover underwear, a fence and being screwed in it.

    I remember those parties!

    I said "p a r t i e s" not "p a n t i e s"!

  21. This is helpful

  22. So what does it do? I'm not checking any boxes unless I know what it causes!!

  23. Hi Holly,
    You get surprise videos or at least you did when it first came out. I don't know what you get now. I saw one stupid video and that was it. I disabled the function.

  24. When do you get them?

  25. It's a surprise!

  26. Ok, all i get is a check box saying "this post is super-awesome" when i make posts.
