Please just put a link to your name; don't use your signature if you have a fancy one. Try to be as specific as possible. You can typically find your browser version by going to Help → About <browser name> in your menus. You can find your precise Flash version by going to a toon, right-clicking on it, and choosing About Adobe Flash Player <#>, or just go here. Use 5 tildes (~~~~~) to generate a timestamp.

Windows 7 Firefox 3.5.8 All worked. I turned off Greasemonkey on this machine before trying anything, if that's relevant. Turning Greasemonkey back on didn't affect anything, so my hunch was probably wrong. 00:04, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

I'm Confused

I think it has to do with abandoning the website. I've seen all of the listed toons before, and they all worked properly. But, when they stopped updating the website, they mysteriously started glitching. Maybe the site needs to be updated for the new flash players and hyped up computers.

I think it's due to Flash upgrades. About a month ago, none worked for me, but they worked again (minuse the ones I said) once I upgraded Flash player. Ironicly, they stopped working on the same day I downloaded a free trial of Flash CS4 Proffesional. cash money tc 18:11, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

The wiki is not for collecting speculation. That's what the forum is for. Especially when it comes to "abandoning" the website. I'm sure we all have our theories of what is happening, but there is no use of everybody just writing down their wild guesses. Right now, we don't have enough information to determine what is going on. If you look at the data we've collected so far you can see that there are some Flash versions that work for some users while they don't work for others. I don't see any pattern to come to any conclusion here. Loafing 18:33, 28 March 2010 (UTC)
