Is it socially acceptable to doodle on the market graph?

Relevant xkcd:

I wrote a script to do that sort of thing and tested it here: Hope you don't mind me hijacking your test market @A!

Do you Manifold people think it's generally alright to draw stuff on markets without asking first? YES means yes, NO means no, though I'm leaving the question intentionally vague to hopefully spark some discussion. This question will resolve to the market price at some random point in the last day.

I will not participate myself. Here is the SHA-256 hash of the timestamp used for resolution: 1b7b34b137df12ab0aeb73bf306954e0fa1573b81ac255e119e827a82a059d46

Ah neat! I was wondering why you were trading so much in my market. 😂

Seems legit to me.

If people don't draw anything on this market, I'll be very disappointed.

Yes, this is completely fine. Other people may interfere with the drawing though, and your bot will be easily exploited for mana.

@MichaelWheatley Thanks! Drawing stuff was only like 30 lines of code (interpolating the comic was the hard part). I’m not sure about sharing them though. Seems dual-use.
