The Cookies account

by Lady_Aleena (Curate)
on Apr 26, 2017 at 08:47 UTC ( #1188955=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

A little over four years ago, I created the Cookies account for fun. I was known for my chatterbox antics with cookies; so on April Fools 2013, I decided to have some fun. Two years ago I went in for surgery, which is scary. I was thinking something could happen, and Cookies would be left without someone to maintain the account.

Some users still play with the buttons from time to time. I would not want the account to die just because I did. So, if anything happened to me, would there be someone who would be willing to take over this very silly account?

P.S. I am always willing to add more flavors and options to the account. Just let me know.

P.P.S. This thread can be for anything related to the Cookies account that might merit general discussion, too. 8)

No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

    I like cookies, and having those buttons available is a brilliant and funny Easter egg.

    How much maintenance do Cookies need? Is it more than just adding or removing action buttons?

      Adding buttons and attributing the ones added to the user who made the suggestion is about it. Also, if one group of buttons gets too big, subdividing the groups.

    I guess that yes. Those of course are people you trust, but you don't know who wins the race towards the end. You can ask monks of your choice via private message (/msg nick message in the CB) if they volunteer and pass them the credentials by some chosen way. OTOH, I don't know the site policy regarding multiple access to a single account, as opposed to one person ruling multiple accounts.

    A note of one of the gods would be helpful in this regard.

    perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

      Having more than one real person have login access to an account is in general a bad idea. It's about attributability, which is to say, accountability. If something is done in the context of that account, which human gets the blame? That being said, there's very little harm an ordinary user account can do. And we have ways of restricting secondary accounts even further, so there is really very little concern. That being said -- I don't believe LA has any reason to worry about what happens to that secondary account in the event of her demise. No one really cares about it. And if that should happen, we can pick an interested monk (if any) to take ownership of it at that time.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
        Or you can just let it sit as-is? I mean if the owner can't be arsed to sort it out himself it doesn't need sorting

    Lady_Aleena, you are adorable. And thoughtful and caring too.

    I do not think you need worry about the account. Should the NodeReaper come for your node...Bah! In truth, i'd rather not even think about your loss if i do not need to.
