*uses pointer on blackboard* OK.

 

So I have literally no idea how Phil actually works, and this is just a theory, but this is also just the forums so what the heck.

 

Phil originally doesn't let a few posts through, which from time to time happens and isn't unusal. But if the post doesn't go through, that person will try again and again, and more people will do this as their posts don't go through.

 

My theory is that this is a chain reaction.

 

When a post doesn't go through, and a forumer tries to post again, and again, and again, that means that the filter has more stuff to scan through. As more and more forumers repeat this process, the filter, much like a real filter, becomes clogged.

 

What do you think?

I think that, though that is a good hypotheses, that it is most likely the reason that the mods have given us. Updates.

Clearly Phil is outraged that The Poison Jungle isn't coming out until June, and as a result he is punishing all the FanWings by occasionally not letting a post through. When one post isn't let through, they repost it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and a lot more lover's again until Phil is just too agitated to keep up and goes (temporarily) on strike.

Obviously.

What some call sands of time, I call the ashes of age.

Afterall, that’s what’ll be left behind in the end, ashes.

When Phil was becoming an actual *makes frustrated hand gestures* thing?? idk the right word, Ishmael explained the Philter as thus:

 

 

-Phil frequently carries a bunch of bandaids around in case someone gets hurt, namely himself

 

-He’s seen some  things and because of this he’s very protective of children

 

-He spends his days in an armchair reading strange letters that arrive to him from even stranger entities. It kind of just happened one day and the ones that he doesn’t like he just throws in his little fireplace to keep him warm

 

-Every once in a while a creature he dubbed a Mod will grab a piece of paper in midair before it goes into the fireplace and scurries off with it. He doesn’t know where they go, but the Mods treat him nicely enough that he doesn’t care to ask. 

 

-Every once in a while he takes a nap and wakes up to a mountain of letters. This much clutter in his space makes him a little panicked so he shoves a lot of them into the fireplace without reading them. It makes the entities sad sometimes, but he can’t help it. 

 

-He makes other mistakes sometimes, but he tries his best

*also has on nerdy glasses* Hmm. A valid point.

 

Shion taught me a little bit about coding. Not anything too advanced, but enough to know you may very well be onto something, Eliza. Computers can only handle so much information before they chicken out. For all we know, Phil is also set to detect spam. We don't know that for sure, so don't quote me on this, but if she's right about us keeping on sending in posts that need to be scanned, then it might see it as spam and thinks "Alright, I'm not supposed to let all this spam through."

 

Another idea is pretty much the same as Eliza said. If we keep clogging the filter with posts we want to go through, he'll likely get booked up with all these posts he's gotta go through, and some might get bounced while the others take forever to scan through.

 

As for why this happens more often during the winter, that's a good question... My only guess is that during the winter, it's much colder out in many places so people would naturally spend more time inside. It's also when (for my school, at least) the sports seasons switch up a bit and people finish up with their afterschool practices, therefore have more time for the Forums. So with all this slightly busier traffic - remember, even though there have been updates, I assume the filter system remains close to the same since there really isn't much to update (barring a few of the newer crude slang terms) it might just shock the filter a bit and cause it to glitch out?

 

I don't know man, my computer is older than George Washington so this is some of this is stuff Shion "diagnosed for that old beast", as she says about it.

I thought it had to do with the release of the game and he was struggling with something internally on the sites and stuff.
