Can anyone explain the 1515 thing?

Its because it takes 15 characters to post so ppl just write 1515 to fill the space

When you reply to a thread, the software requires a minumum of 15 characters in the answer. So people use 1515 to fill the requirement if they make a one word answer or too short an answer. A lot of people will actually write
“15 characters.”
But actually you can write any word or words you want to fill in.

15 is a quarter of 60. 60 is an integer, whole number, and rational number. We’re actually mathematicians; in disguise. Please forward all of your arithmetic

Schizophrenics on this website believe by writing 1515 we are contacting the dead and they are able to view our posts 1515 is also used for living sacrifices

@anon80490300 @77nick77 I suppose I’m too verbose to have encountered that so far. Thank you for explaining!

This is what happened when I pressed “reply” after just 4 characters.

So when people want to give a short reply they pad it out with “1515” etc.

I thought it was a software bug until I asked someone shortly after I joined.

Origins of 1515 relate to the hyperbolic numeric value of ‘23

3 * 5 = 15 and 15/5 = 3

Thus there are ‘2’ sets of 3 2 <------>3

conjoined we have an irrevocably, uncoincidentally and yet impervious conclusion ergo constrained to the numerical value 23.

either that or its 15 characters :raising_hand_man:

When you type fifteen in a row @LevelJ1 gets a special notification and puts on a pink tutu and dances around his house.

Okay so this is from like 5 years ago, when we first instituted the blanket ban on religious discussions. Some users were very upset with us, and other users teased them by pretending to be outraged that they couldn’t talk about their “religion” Potatoism. Over time, that became the official fake religion of the forum. Potatoists believe in the Great Potato, who may one day deliver us to his starchy kingdom. It has since evolved into a long running joke or a way to get around the religion ban. Since the great potato isn’t a real religion, people sometimes invoke his name instead of referring to an actual deity. Sort of like pastafarianism.

Edited to add: I believe @Nomad gets credit for starting the potato thing

Wow, I can’t believe we have our own lore.

If anyone wants to know about the turtle thing, I would be happy to let @LevelJ1 take the wheel on that one
