Allo, all. There's a fun new feature: XP Quips. Go to user settings, and find the checkbox marked "Show quips on XP loss/gain messages". If you turn this on, you'll get fun little quips in the XP nodlet when you gain or loose XP. If you're too fragle to deal with a little automated fun mocking, then keep the checkbox off, and live without that little bit of humor.
Oh, and if you think lots of the messages are too harsh, turn off the checkbox. If there's one or two you disagree with, or find disagreeable, then reply to this message, and we'll consider... or, of course, if you think we missed a real hum-dinger, let us know... also by replying to this message.
