    Welcome back.

    I beleive you owe us around 100 timages.

    Or you can just pay us off.

    Mrrrrrraaaaah?!

    Neeeeeeeeeeeer!

    I'll be expecting reparations.

    Dude this blog has like so much potential.

    Imagine...all of the best bloggers teamed up....



  •   At 12/27/2006 10:32 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    That was what I'd originally thought of when I put the word "allience" in its name.

    It was going to be a super-cool gigantic collaboration...

    Then it turned into poorly drawn pictures and promptly died.

    I think Roboshrub Inc. is evolving into the kind of collaborative thing you desire.

    We've added two new members in less than a month, after not expanding our ranks in over a year.

    If we maintain stability through February, we may be able to add more and more people to our gradually expanding sphere of influence.

    Roboshrub wants a massive team blog?




  •   At 12/27/2006 11:05 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Well, he's not complaining.

    Does anyone really know what they want?



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:09 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...


    Yes, I think we do.

    I would just (personally) hate to see the fans in control of the blog...because eventually...there would be like 30 people teamed up on it and everyone fighting for posting space.

    That's why a side team-blog is the best option.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    It's kind of like Stock Dividends...

    Everyone's pissed that they didn't get cash...but still satisfied that they got something..

    Okay so that was a horrible example. I hate accounting.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:13 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Yeah... but it might all work out if everyone who joins never posts.

    I mean, Roboshrub averaged less than two posts a month this year. Hopefully, Pippin and Mr. R9NE will be sporadic posters.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:16 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Perhaps...

    But wasn't Roboshrub pissed at Bob for not posting? So by logic...he would be pissed at everyone for not posting. It's like collecting Social Security without ever having had a job!

    On a totally unrelated matter...
    Remember when you told me to stop making fake characters many many months ago? Then like...a month later...you double the number of characters you had.

    Funny stuff.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:20 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    He was never upset. Just commenting that Bob never posts. It was nothing personal.

    I don't remember telling you to stop making fake characters... wait, yes I do. I think it was around the time of the Battle of the Bob Doles.

    I never reached that 100th post.

    Bob Dole is loved by alls.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:30 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    He's the perfect foil.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:30 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    And... his Wikipedia article is locked.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:35 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I remember when I tried to do a Wikipedia article on Roboshrub Inc...

    5 minutes later people were complaining... and my work was deleted!



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:36 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I tried starting a PBWiki on Roboshrub Inc. but I couldn't think of a way to write it that wouldn't be redundant.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:41 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I saw that while doing a google search one day.

    But what the hell is PBWiki?



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:45 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I don't know... some kind of public wiki service. I signed up a year ago... hold on...

    There.

    Never could figure out what to do with the thing.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:49 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I may make a wiki for myself tonight.

    They say that narcissism is the highest form of flattery.

    LOL.



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:55 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I'll try to work on another SCUBA template over the break...

    Can you imagine how many comments an All-Star blogger cast would generate?



  •   At 12/27/2006 11:59 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Probably many, many comments. I mean, on the Robosaur one we used up about thirty comments for one conversation.

    Multiply that by ten, then twenty.

    Wow.

    Also, what do you think the new template should be like?



  •   At 12/28/2006 12:03 AM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Also, I'm calling it a night.

    Just wanted to tell you so you didn't reload this page every two minutes looking for a response.

    Time zones rule.



  •   At 12/28/2006 12:11 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Why can't New York be on Utah time??

    Why?!?

    I think the template should be a mixture of the scuba.gif you've got on here...and your timetoteleport blog. And it would be awesome if all the team bloggers avatars were all included on the sidebar?



  •   At 12/28/2006 1:36 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I tried to do that with the avatars on Roboshrub Inc. a year ago, but since all the avatars are different sizes, it wouldn't scale right.



  •   At 12/28/2006 11:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Wow! Looks really nice!

    I could do a sort of a brady bunch flash with all the avatars of team-members in the squares or something...

    Now to generate "buzz"



  •   At 12/28/2006 11:41 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I'm almost afraid to ask...



  •   At 12/29/2006 12:31 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    To answer your question...
    Both Beta bloggers and regular bloggers can become team members just as beta bloggers can comment on old blogs and vise-versa.

    I don't think we'll have any probs.



  •   At 12/29/2006 12:41 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Could you change the white stone to a slightly different color?

    You know...just to distinguish between blogs.

    You're asleep right now, aren't you? Blast you Thomas Jefferson!



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:36 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I had no idea that old and new Blogger profiles could be on the same blog.

    I'll try it out...



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Yep.



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:39 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I like the new color! Perfection!



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:43 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    It's part of the custom color themes for Roboshrub Inc., the "Blasted Dunes" one, I think.

    Check your e-mail.



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:43 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Are you getting an RSS feed of this one post?



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:48 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    just a sec.



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:54 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Sh**...

    While following the instructions and using the link provided to be added...I could not log in with my new beta blogger account...Nor my old one because it said it was converted to beta blogger...therefor..sadly... I think we have to convert this blog to beta.

    Damn you Michael Jackson!

    I don't use RSS feeds...but I will check it and see if it works.



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:55 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    The RSS feed works fine.

    But...it's a pity about the beta thing...



  •   At 12/29/2006 5:58 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Hold on. I'm going to send myself an e-mail and see if I can get into this blog with my beta account.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I have written a letter of complaint to blogger.

    Of course they'll probably just see that my blog contains no banner or flag and thus ban me...lol.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:02 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Judging by what we've seen so far, upgrading fully to the beta might break me off of Roboshrub Inc.

    Can a group blog exist if some of its members upgrade?

    Curse you, Blogger!



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:05 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Hrmm...

    That's a tuff question...

    I would hope that upgrading one old blog wouldn't warrant an automatic update of all blogs?...

    I would doubt it...but...the consequences could be major if I'm wrong....

    Is there a way to test?




  •   At 12/29/2006 6:07 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I could upgrade one of the Roboshrub Inc. sock puppets and see what that does to their membership.

    I'll make a special test case for that purpose right now. Check back in twenty minutes.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:10 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    They don't even let you make old profiles anymore.

    Wait. Don't you still have Bob Dole lying around?! Sign him up for SCUBA, and upgrade him!



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:12 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Roger that.
    I'll return at 4:25-30 Mountain Time.

    I tried to test with Cabe @ the Federalist Solution but sadly Stan (my bro) kicked me off the blog after like months of nothingness.

    If everything goes wrong you could potentially screw up the Roboshrub blog...then Mike (Roboshrub) would be pissed... it's like his life dream. Hope the sock puppet test works.

    Oh..I just read that....errr...
    let me find what fake e-mail (if any) I used for Bob Dole...brb.




  •   At 12/29/2006 6:13 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I don't think the e-mail matters. There's still a pending invitation to your potamus address. Just log in as Bob Dole and accept.

    And then... migrate!



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:15 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...

    Bob Dole still loves Bob Dole.

    The e-mail is cabeff@yahoo.com (a fake one I made a year ago)

    I can't sign him up considering it didn't work on me..you'll have to invite.

    Oh... okay Ill try that.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:17 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Okay, Bob Dole has admin access.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:17 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...

    K Bob Dole is now a member of this blog...

    now I will upgrade his ass up his face...

    gimme a sec.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:22 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Also, have Bob Dole make a post before he upgrades, so we can see what happens to them.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:23 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    I figured it out 100% now....
    It told me everything...

    It would upgrade all my Bob Dole blogs (I had a bunch of old fake test blogs) but would not upgrade this because Bob Dole didn't own this.

    Therefor if you even partially have rights to edit the HTML of Roboshrub Inc with the character Gyrobo...it would upgrade Roboshrub Inc as well. But if don't have those rights...it will upgrade all your other blogs. Oh...and it's all blogs you own...you can't be specific. It sucks that way....

    We may have to wait...or find another alternative?

    In the end I didn't upgrade Bob Dole...because the warning told me everything I needed to know.

    Wait...do you want ME to convert this blog to beta with Bob so it doesnt convert Roboshrub Inc? Is that the plan?

    Ill wait for a response.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:23 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Ooooh, I should've thought of that sooner.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:24 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    You didnt screw up, did ya?

    I havent converted yet.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:25 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Nah.

    This is getting so complicated... and it's probably impossible to create old Blogger profiles, so Bob Dole is a valuable commodity.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:26 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Let's just put all this off and hope Blogger comes up with a solution in another couple of months.

    Google does that sometimes.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:27 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    I have a bunch of other fake old blogging characters...

    Remember..you told me to stop making them and I didn't listen?

    I think I converted Evil Gyrobo into Evil Jimmy Carter or something... want me to add him?



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:28 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Wow... the number of comments on this post is now greater than the number of comments on any of Roboshrub Inc.'s posts.

    But not as much as Bob's first post.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:28 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    Plus Stan has Evil Jesse Jackson.... and he's home right now (for holidays)

    Converting Bob Dole won't mess anything up.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:29 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    okay now I feel alone.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:29 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Sure, hold on.

    How many fake personalities do you have? Maybe we can turn this blog into the anti-Roboshrub Inc., like that Operation: Black Cheddar Flatlander did a year ago.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:31 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...

    A lot...but probably only a few that I can remember the passwords to.

    2 or 3 for certain.
    why?



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:33 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    It's always good to have all your fake profiles in the same blog, so you always know how many there are.

    And like you said, SCUBA has potential.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:37 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    Oh I think I know what you're trying to say....

    I like the flatlander idea...

    But then I (Bathroom Hippo) can't be a member!

    How about I just get Bob Dole or another fake character to convert this blog to beta...yes it will screw it up slightly but it can easily be fixed without affecting any of YOUR blogs.

    Then I can be added...and others.

    Eh?



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:40 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Technically, I'm still the owner, even though Bob Dole has admin rights.

    You can try to upgrade, but if it doesn't work, you can start your own beta blog. I'll even give you the template, although it uses the classic blogger tags.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:44 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Here's the template.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:44 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    Will do.

    Sorry about the delay...
    Was downloading a Mythbusters episode off of E-mule...

    Internet explorer wouldn't load this blog...so now I'm using Firefox.

    Gotta love capitalism...

    I'll update ASAP if possible.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:46 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    saved it to my desktop

    now to try the upgrade...



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:48 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    bad news...won't upgrade...ownership reasons...

    this means Plan Z...

    Plan Z: I (Bathroom hippo) will have to make a team blog. So you have two Gyrobo's one old and one new?



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:55 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Yeah. I tried logging into Blogger with my Gmail account, and they created a new Blogger profile for me.

    So now I've got two Gyrobo accounts.



  •   At 12/29/2006 6:59 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    Errrmm..

    That means that the old Gyrobo won't have the new SCUBA on his blog list...and the new Gyrobo will.

    And yet the old Gyrobo will be the one doing all the commenting over at other peoples blogs and thus not generating any "buzz" when they click on his profile....

    Unless I have everything mixed up.

    At times like this...I turn to the Bible...

    "A Gyrobo divided against itself cannot stand!"



  •   At 12/29/2006 7:02 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    I could set my old profile's homepage to the new SCUBA. That seems like the perfect split ticket.



  •   At 12/29/2006 7:08 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    Well...

    Thinking logically...

    I guess that would work.
    Because I know eventually You and Mike will convert by force or other means... And when you convert either your characters will merge...or one will be expired...and one Gyrobo will win the fight....and that Gyrobo will be a member of the team blog...so it should work in the end.

    But the sad thing is... I kinda wanted to add Roboshrub (I dont think he has a new account) and other old bloggers...

    I can work on it tomorrow. I didn't get much sleep last night.

    So I'll go ahead with the new blog? Will Xscubax.blogspot.com suffice?



  •   At 12/29/2006 7:10 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    Xcellent.

    Also, we've finally surpassed Bob.

    We finally made it.



  •   At 12/29/2006 7:12 PM, Blogger Bob Dole said...
    Take that Bob!!

    And this is from Roboshrub (kick in the groin)... oh wait...that didn't do anything...


    -runs-

    Well I g2g to sleep, Gyro.
    I'll work on it tomorrow.
    Lemme know if you have any ideas until then!



  •   At 12/29/2006 7:13 PM, Blogger Gyrobo said...
    See you.



  •   At 12/30/2006 11:15 AM, Blogger Bathroom Hippo said...

    Okay created a fake Hippo account for old blogger purposes... I am now a member of this team.

    How come Bob Dole gets admin rights and I don't?

    I actually like Bob Dole being here...he could have a major comeback.
