And the Number of the Counting Shall Be Six

The tree has now eaten up so much room that I have moved my own response to the meme here: The Ectomeme!

UPDATE: Summary and easy to grab tagged lists are here: Insanity to the Power of Six

Go check out the 30 Hour and 60 hour awesome graphics made by Navimie over at The Daily Frostwolf! All the goodness of the insanity below, only in flowchart form!!

This tree is accurate as of 9:54pm EST 2/23/12… at which point I started hitting “Post Too Large” errors and was unable to update it. I think I’ve managed to win a few more lines back by moving my own post, but we shall see.

If they have a post, it’s linked. If not, the website is linked. Names in bold had already been tagged.

People ‘Outside’ the Tree

There are some folks who wanted to play, but hadn’t gotten directly tagged. I’m listing them here as I find them… but if you want to be added, just drop me a comment below! 🙂

  1. How cool! What a great Six Degrees Tree! It is so great to see all the bloggers who participated all in one place!

    And love the pics! 😀

    I will be sure to check back later.

    • I’m having way too much fun building that thing. I may chicken out and just use that as my ‘tag’ list, but I’m hoping there are a few folks still untagged by the time I get home! ^_~;;

    • Just keep in mind that it’s still in progress! 😉

      I’ve been updating it sporadically whilst the databases are number-crunching, but I should be able to make a better pass once I get home. *puts on spelunking hat*

      I’m guessing we’ll get at least ten forks deep before I give up from eyestrain… lol

  2. That’s a nice selection of pictures! I love the itty bitty rainbow polka dot mule 😀

    I tried to tag people that hadn’t already been caught, but I guess I hadn’t been over to Windsoar’s post to see that she’d already tagged Saz when I made my post.

    • There’s a whole bunch of folks who were tagged multiple times– Saz is just really popular for some reason. *grin*

      And I love those micro minis! The person who sculpts them is retiring some of the molds which made me run out and take a groups shot so I knew what I had… now I need more teeny tiny rearing Shetland ponies! Hehehe

    • Itchy horse is one of my favorites– I just can’t decide what color to paint it! 😀

      And love data trees and putting things into proper order, so this whole event is making my left brain a very happy place to be. lol

      Now if I can just convince it to keep going when it comes to rewriting my shadow priest macros… *crosses fingers*

  3. Fantastiic!

    I was hoping someone would actually build a tree of this 😀 BTW, Bubbles of Mischief who you have at 6. 4. 4. is me. I was double tagged by Navimie first at 6. 5. 1.

    Let the Pingbacks begin 😛

    • Fixed! 😀 I figured I’d have a bunch to clean up as I went– but I’m almost tempted to write up a scorecard of the ‘top tagged’ folks. *grin*

      Now I’m just hoping there’s someone left to tag when I’m done! 😉

      • LOL, the ‘top tagged’ list would be good to see too. I can hear the running commentary now in my head… Effraeti is in the lead with 3 tags, closing in on her is Cymre with another 3 tags 😛

    • That drawing is awesome! 😀 (Life is always better with flowcharts)

      I’ll go drop a link in to it at the top so folks know there is a more visual-friendly version of the chaos! lol

      Have to say… I’m having a lot of fun building the tree– if I can only catch it up before people start tagging again tomorrow! 😉

      • Both are awesome in their same right.

        The tree is great as it aids in tracking who is participating (and why), whereas the chart gives the real impression of the chaos that is occuring.

  4. Haha, I love the list you added there on the bottom! Is that really all? :O Oh my god.. The world is too small, or we need more bloggers! But it’s great to see that so many have been tagged 😀

    • Apparently we need moar bloggers! Heh (Then again, to be fair, the further down the tree you go the more people know each other)

      I’m just having a blast finding all the new blogs– been meaning to pad out my blogroll and this was an awesome opportunity! 😀

    • Huzzah! I’ll add you on when I do the evening run-through! 😀 (I saw a few new posts come in this morning, I just didn’t have a chance to do a run-through before work.)

      I think I’m going to have to throw in the towel come Wednesday if it’s still running… Ten tags deep is my ‘I wonder where this will go’ curiosity limit. 😉

  5. […] I’m supposed to tag someone. Well. Martha posted a list of who’s been tagged and … I don’t have the energy to work through that list and figure out who’s left […]

  6. I think I was tagged by Kamalia too. I have tried explaining what happened with me, but I will have to do a post on this since everyone keeps tagging me! ha ha
    Chat

  7. […] will take Martha down an additional level of her tree, and […]

  8. […] really is interesting mapping all this out, you can see the tree in all it’s branchy glory at Martha.net. It’s like the 6 degrees of blogger seperation. Share this:FacebookTwitterEmailLike […]

    • Updated! And I am so glad you didn’t tag anyone, I’ve run out of horizontal room! ^_~;;

      And next time you do a meme like this, let me know so I can put ‘don’t get sick’ on my calendar… heh 😉

      • Would you believe me if I gave you warning anyway?

        Congratulations on the attention, you and Nav both deserve it & a little bit more for your efforts.

        Remember you new to somehow squeeze WoWInsider into this chart, Anne did provide her Sixth after all.

        Life should be back to normal tomorrow, or the day after, meanwhile, thanks on behalf of all the wow bloggers/participants.

        … and of course, get well!

        • I would after this! 😀 lol

          And the 60-hour flowchart is downright awesome… O_O

          I’ve hit a couple ‘tagless’ posts, so I’m starting a whole new section, although I’m tempted to put WoW Insider in its own category. *putters about updating what she can from work*

          This has been a lot of fun and a great way to find new blogs to follow– plus now I’ll always have that traffic spike to reminisce on! 😉

          • I guess it could be suggested that I tagged WoWInsider, who in turn tagged the 3 of us, which in turn added a new layer of insanity.

  9. Godmother should be updated as she tagged me in (I believe) the original 30 hours, along with others, and I know I tagged a half dozen others (one of whom found out via today’s WoWInsider article, lol).

  10. hmm very interesting community meme going on here, my absence really missing a lot these days. nobody tagged me yet since probably because they thought i am inactive for a while now. but im still active in blog azeroth. I would gladly join this…

  11. Ok, I feel slack now, but I swear – every single person I had listed to tag – had already been tagged – I can’t remember who it was, but I went to their website to confirm the situation and they mentioned it was their third or something….

    Contemplating going back and tagging people now just for the heck of it….or maybe if someone could tag me again… *hint* *hint* hehhehe

    I feel awful now!! I am a slack blogger!!!

    dragonray

    • *grin* That was the whole reason I started the tree– I couldn’t think of who I knew who hadn’t been tagged! 😉

      Of course now my blogroll is exponentially larger, so hopefully next time I can jump into the fray a bit quicker… *crosses fingers*

      And if you want to keep tagging, have at it! … I just can make the post any bigger ’cause WordPress is throwing hissy fits and I haven’t found the workaround for it yet. :p

  12. Hoo boy, what you are doing here is pretty amazing! You must have an extremely systematic and methodical mind. I love it. BTW, Manalicious is = Vidyala is = Manalicious is me. I’m listed there under both I guess, haha. Tag all the things…! ;D

    • Tag all the things?? 🙁

      Actually I had a blast building the tree, my CompSci/Accounting brain loves putting things into logical order (sort of like Legos!) and it was fun to watch the darned thing grow… 😀

      And I’ll get your name cleaned up in a sec—there are a few folks who are in there under multiple names since I was focused on matching the domains and not the handles. I’m putting together a massive ‘who’s who’ list for later today so it’ll be a good chance to clean things up.

    • I’ve hit the size limit for WordPress so I can’t add anyone else to the tree, but I’m pondering the idea of splitting it out into subtrees… Just gimme a week or so to recover from this last go-round. 😉

  13. Fantastic! I just found this through WoW Insider. Thanks for doing all the linkwork! In some places you have me listed as Akabeko and others as Akaeka; for the record, it’s Akabeko! 🙂

  14. […] last week, I’ve been really busy.  I do want to give some High Latency Love to Martha for this, and Navimie for this…simply […]

  15. […] would I be arsed when Navimie produces these Sixth meme – 60 hours and Martha produces these And the Number of the Counting Shall Be Six and Insanity to the Power of Six? Just go there instead, but be prepared to have your mind […]

    • Scary bit is that it’s even bigger now… but WordPress won’t let me add lines to the post. ^_^;;

      I’m tempted to come back the 10th and split it into smaller parts so I can see how far it unravels… Mwahaha! 😀

  16. A little late to the party, but I noticed a trackback to my meme and it led me here. I’m astounded by how far the meme has gone, I had no idea that it would turn into an epidemic. This is great to see! Good work 🙂

    • Whoops, sorry I missed your comment! The meme was crazy fun to track, sort of like watching frost fractal up a window pane. I’m sort of scared to see how big the Noblegarden event gets this year! ^_~;;

  17. Oh, how embarrassing — I am the broken branch with the termites. Not tagging was unintentional. Hope there wasn’t a nest of baby robins that got hurt in the fray!

    Great, and intriguing post, by the by

    • Now worries! There are lots of folks who missed the meme as it whizzed by and lots more who have posted that didn’t make it onto the tree—Wordpress got nineteen kinds of grumpy and wouldn’t let me update it anymore.

      I’m still considering going back and doing one last run through… it’s a lot of fun to see how it grew (and how it hopped fandoms!). 🙂
