It also has a link, not only to the comic, but also to the explained comic here! Talk about a loop. Anonymous07:20, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

you can't access title-text on mobile devices 14:29, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

could someone please poste a link to the column that pay tribute to this comic? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

This could be the one that makes some reference: (the text appears inside) Mercastan (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

FYI: Link is broken perhaps you should reference the internet archive link: 18:41, 19 January 2024 (UTC)

To access the title text on mobile devices, hold down the thing you need to see the title text of. Nate (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

You can also go to, and tapping on the image or the alt-text link makes the title text appear below the title (for those chrome users who can't see the entire title text by tap-holding). 13:20, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

I have that website blocked by an application that blocked websites. The reason is NOT because of what is described in the comic, but it's because I got permabanned from that site back in 2017 for something I did not even know was against the rules, with no prior warnings, and the only appeal option that they gave that they did not consider "ban evasion" was an email address that never replied back to you, even years later, and I don't think they even deserve viewing traffic from people who they have treated so unfairly/punished so harshly like that. 01:56, 18 December 2021 (UTC)

Waitwhat? Presuming even that you mean Cracked (not sure what you did to annoy them, it must have been... interesting) and not, I'm not sure how they could remain targetted against you, nor how it'svan application. Assuming you're not reinstalling a Child-Safe-style application of your own on every machine you try to access via, and making sure it's using PG-13 limits of some kind.
I doubt they can reliably IP-block you. If I go to edit wikipedia and it refuses because some idiot has previously made a nuisance of themselves under my current dynamic IP, it is trivial (without VPNing or similar) to get a newish IP-of-the-moment that usually lets me do my (non-nuisance) editing.
Even if you stick to a single device then aggressive cookie-style tracking can be 'forgotten' so that you machine isn't traitorously restating your apparent blockability.
...never mind me, it's way too late (GMT) and I'm just far too intrigued by your statement. 02:30, 18 December 2021 (UTC)

aaah nooo A TVTropes link Thexkcdnerd (talk) 02:07, 20 February 2023 (UTC)

i think explainxkcd is the new tvtropes

I have.. 1... 2.. SIX explainxkcd tabs are open right now -- Willlbrwillbr (talk) 21:07, 15 February 2024 (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

...hmmm... I only have three explainxkcds (the other two could be closed, and now will be - the additional ones were there to switch back and forth to aid in article editing on this one, for jobs now completed), five different wikipedia/wiktionary ones (semi-relevent, to currently 'active' background researches) and a smattering of others that aren't tvtropes (which number at 23... all vital for reference, honest!) 21:40, 15 February 2024 (UTC)

I got 20 explainxkcd tabs open, this IS (very) META Erlandyt (talk) 16:23, 19 April 2024 (UTC)
