Story Post: Oops

It just occurred to me that Josh doesn’t own a white pen, making his last changes to the whiteboard illegal. I just edited the whiteboard, before realizing this, but my changes (even if we undo his) are completely legal, since I own both white and black pens (and his alterations were just white and black).
In a simpler version: this last version is legal; I’ll just keep it that way.

I haven’t noticed, is the black border around the whole image broken somewhere?

Not sure what you mean by broken. Looks like the image now contains a black border and the HTML page has another black border, so I’ve edited the latter into an un-Inkable shade of greenish-grey, for clarity.

IceFromHell added that black border two days ago - because it’s the same colour as the words “DO NOT ERASE” which lie inside it, I think all subsequent Whiteboard edits (including IceFromHell’s later edit) were illegal. Am I reading that right?

Yes, it seems a boarder was added, but it was made by quirck, not me.
That’s why quirck was wondering if it was broken: the changes were ilegal, if it wasn’t (and it really isn’t, I just checked).
I don’t have the time to do it now, but the whiteboard should be reverted to that state.

I went ahead and reverted the whiteboard to after quirk’s edit. as yeah, the do not erase text should prevented all the other edits.
