its not about the context its about the intention. you only come in here to play devils advocate and then have multiple people check you. its questionable at the least
the first thing I recommend is that you actually read what I'm saying and interpret correctly instead of bashing me when im simply trying to have a discussion about the things yall are posting about. how many times have I had to correct someone because for whatever reason they misinterpret what I'm saying or downright get it wrong? I already got called a family man and transphobe, which is not true. apparently you think I said it's okay to tell people to kill themselves, or implied that I agreed that it was okay for a person to say it to someone else, which is again false. and now we are circling around to this. This is the second time you've used the term "playing devils advocate". That's a pretty hot take, considering everything I have said has actually been relatively chill :/

yes it happened and it was still wack. I said in my first reply to you about this that neither legality nor normality make it acceptable
you say it's whack but some of those people are still together today because they went to high-school together. you ever heard the old saying "high school sweethearts" ? that means people who met in highschool and went on to marry later in life. is that not acceptable? it's a totally different story if you have an 18 or 19 year old dating a 13 or 14 year old like you said. thats just forgeted up, and not once did I imply otherwise

then why on earth are you defending him...?
first of all, I was under the impression that he was around my age at the time when he posted those things, but evidently he was older that I had originally thought. plenty of people posted stupid stuff here back in the day that they probably regret ever doing, so I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt if that were the case. it appears that isn't so, which leads me to secondly, I never defended him other than to say bringing up a 12 year old post seems irrelevant. in fact I stated the things he said could very well be interpreted as red flags and that jokingly or not it was still a forgeted up thing to say. Was there soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning I missed? It's so crazy ridiculous how everything I say gets misrepresented without looking at the context of my posts

ohh i meant he was in his mid to late 20s when he posted that - when we were friends i think he was 26 that was like at least a decade ago
oh no that's what I was getting at, Goth77 is 29 (according to his profile) which means he would've been 18 when that was posted, and Bisjac would be 24-25
ok, I didn't know bisjac was that much older than me. i don't even know the guy all like that so my bad

ya my profile age is accurate. but also I would have actually been 17 when that was posted, turning 18 early into the start of my senior later that year

18 and 19 year olds shouldn't be dating 15 and 16 year olds either. there is too much of a difference in emotional and physical development. would you trust a 19 year old boy with your 16 year old daughter? age of consent is simply irrelevant. idc about the law. we're not talking about the law, which is wrong so often that the key difference between systems of governance is the way laws are changed. we're talking about what's healthy and safe for kids
first do a quick rewind in your mind and tell me if you recall any freshmen dating seniors when you were in highschool. If you went to public school and say this never happened I know for a fact you are lying. I don't like the law all of the time either, but guess what, if not for the law it wouldn't be illegal to go rape or murder someone. age of consent is not irrelevant, there is a reason that law exists. usually by highschool most people are mature enough to make decisions for themselves without the need of a parent holding their hand or watching their every move, but I guess that's a variable factor.

I really feel like I dodged a bullet not ending up worse than I did
you didn't dodge no bullet man you were the bullet, remember?

18-19 years olds should not be dating 13-14 year olds. just because it happens, it's legal, and it's sometimes even considered to be normal, doesn't mean that it is good or healthy
yo i think your math is a little off

What I do know is that 2011 was my junior year of highschool, and I knew seniors 18 or 19 years of age that were dating freshman that were 2 or 3 years younger than them. It's more common than you might think in that aspect
18 - 2 = 16 and 19 - 3 = 16.

16 is the age of consent in most states - where are you coming up with the age 13 from anything that I said? talking about highschool not middleschool bro

he was very serious
forgeted up regardless

I think one of the funniest things about internet culture is the presumption that you are entitled to be allowed in some community. nobody has to explain to you why you got banned or even have a good reason. maybe they just don't like your ass. can you imagine if you kept trying to hang out with a group of people in real life but you were really annoying and they stopped inviting you to stuff and you demanded an explanation
i're not wrong but it's still pretty rude to just ban someone for no good reason

ok but you dont pay to be in a friend group
lol what

it reminds me a lot of that grown ass adult from Grind talking about dating highschool girls and the highschool boys thinking he was cool for it

no permabans handed out for this grade A behavior, what a forum.
how old was he when he said this? Cus I remember hearing Bisjac was 30, and that was probably seven or six years ago when I became privy to that fact.
Pretty sure they're around my age, give or take a year or two, I don't know for sure. What I do know is that 2011 was my junior year of highschool, and I knew seniors 18 or 19 years of age that were dating freshman that were 2 or 3 years younger than them. It's more common than you might think in that aspect. Digging up dirt on someone from a post that was 12 years ago doesn't exactly do much justice - 12 years is a lot of time for someone to change their entire personality. Within that time their entire outlook on life could change.

Quote from: Bisjac
She either legal or not. I like em both, and I don't ask a lot of questions.

of course, one must always keep an eye out for what I like to call red flags
whether this was intended to be a joke or not, I am unsure. forgeted up regardless

Games / Warside (Advance Wars Clone)
« on: January 16, 2023, 11:11:55 AM »

even though it's an obvious advance wars clone it looks really cool. I had fun playing advance wars back in the day and always wished it had some sort of multiplayer feature. There was another advance wars clone-like game called Wargroove with mixed reviews, though it seems a little more like Fire Emblem than Advance Wars

tell me about your experiences with fire emblem / advance wars like games - what are the best ones out there?

Your ironic:
damn, nvm those forum rules have me feeling edgy
Had me thinking you held quite a different opinion due to the implicit "its ok if the forum admin does it".
i realize my attempt at humor was somewhat brash there, my apologies if it came off the wrong way. i was just poking a little fun at forum rule 5

I know that random strangers telling you to kill yourself should be taken lightly, but it will not always be, especially by those already disposed to depression or the impressionable children that come to a game thinking they are joining a community to build legos with other kids.
you're right. and i think in those situations it's really important that the parents of the kids who play make sure there isn't any actual harm going on in the places they interact with online. or in the case of an older person with depression that they try to seek from help family or friends , or professionally if they need it

ah that's on me for being unspecific as I was discussing two separate conversations at once. Drendran was the one trying to say that non-cishet folks don't experience any discrimination. My main qualm for you was the whole "telling people to kill themselves should just be treated as normal" thing. Sorry for my ambiguous wording.
alright glad we could clear that up. also if we could clear soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning else up, i never said telling people to kill themseves should be treated as normal, in fact I implied quite the opposite:

That's obviously not a very nice thing to say to somebody - I don't think I would say that even to my worst enemy

what I did stress however was that if random person on the internet you never met a day in your life says soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning hurtful to you, it's not soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning you should probably take seriously. now if random this person is constantly harassing you and making legitimate threats that is a different situation and should be dealt with more seriously.

Yeah I apologize for getting sucked into arguing with such ignorance.
Interestingly relevant to the OP however, is that his and goth's mindsets are exactly why when I decided to resume brickbuilding I switched over to brickadia. There is much less tolerance by the community for family values and common sense.
i'm not homophobic or sensible jeez dude. as a matter of fact, there are homo & trans that I am friends with whom I talk to semi-regularly and have even bought games for - not going to mention any names out of respect but im sry u feel that way

Also I don’t think anybody brought up clans. Clan culture was probably the best thing to happen to this game in terms of community, IMO. Im sure there is probably a rabbit hole we could also go down about how some people were victimized through clans, but for the most part, there was so much fun in making things with your clan mates or just being there for the competitive nature between clans.
clans were awesome especially the ones doing a lot of building/eventing for big events - fond memories doing group builds

what the heck happened on that day that spiked the player count so drastically??

this and discord server invites aren't permanent to begin with unless if you have a massive ass forget-all server to get a custom url, it's just a mess
you can edit the time in which a discord server invite link expires, it doesn't need to be a massive server

The main issue is that information stored in discords is not privy to search engines; so to actually find that information you have to first know where to find it and search for that first and then search in that place (with discords loving dogstuff search feature) for the information you're actually looking for. This makes research impossible.
yeah that is actually quite annoying

okay, but for example, would you rather if stackoverflow was a discord or a forum? how easy is it to just google a question affixed with 'stackoverflow' and just find an answer to it, even if it's not the exact wording due to semantic search? would you rather ask first and potentially get ignored or posted over by some other dude who posts a 3150 line log.txt in their discord message, completely drowning out your post, or have a forum where your message is guaranteed to be seen as all posts take up the same amount of space?
i've already run into this issue; data just kind of disappeared if it was hosted on a discord from 2017-2019 for the most part and socially it sucks. someone dmed you soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning and you don't share servers with them anymore or they deleted their account? after a while you can no longer access your dms with them. it sucks ass if you have an older discord account.
right I see your point here. it's like crook mentioned, searching for soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning specific on a discord server can be a nightmare. a forum where the question has already been answered and is easily findable in a simple google/forum search is obviously the better option. in my experience, when I can't find an answer to a specific question (usually gaming or modding related) through strenuous google searching, joining a discord server where people are actively having discussions about the topic that I'm looking for support in and asking questions has really helped

I sincerely hope you will never have to suffer the heartbreak associated with someone close taking their own life. Self Delete is an awful plague that affects many young men, such as those attending these forums, and having this kind of statement as soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning practically every user will read is not going to be completely unimpactful.
You think I've never had to suffer from the loss of a loved one? I have dealt with it, on more than one occasion unfortunately. In fact, one of my best friends who I met through this game took their own life - do you think it had do to anything with this game though? the answer is NO, because people go through the most real life stuff outside of the internet

even if it is full of "weirdos" (which I assume is meant to be code for queer and trans folkx.)
it was actually code for creeps, but that stuff is pretty weird too...

It's different if it's the users saying stuff like that, but for the main developer(s) of a retail product say that is unprofessional and creates an abusive and toxic environment for the paying customers, it's no wonder that with a young and impressionable playerbase that the community eventually started adapting similar behaviors
I agree, and as I already stated, I would never even say such a thing to my worst enemy.

i'm honestly tired of being told to chill when doing so has done even less for helping a situation than me openly expressing my feelings
okay don't chill then D:

no..there wasnt..?

This place is infamous for having like only 3 moderators max in its entire history. Where are you getting this info from because I only remember Rotondo, Ephi, and Kompressor…and Ephi was the most active of the three by a large margin
I seem to recall Space Guy being a moderator as well, but lost his mod powers at some point out of the blue

I seriously hope this isn't you sympathizing for Badspot, as if he was any better than the literal kids he was literally telling to kill themselves
That's obviously not a very nice thing to say to somebody - I don't think I would say that even to my worst enemy, but not everyone is me - people say hurtful things sometimes but you can't let pointless stuff like that get to you. Like when someone on the internet that you have never met a day in your life tells you to go kill yourself, you should probably take it with a grain of salt...

Quote from: Forum Rules
5. Do not plea for sympathy
  • Do not make posts about how you are leaving the forums. Just leave.
  • Do not make posts about how the game isn't fun for you anymore.  Just stop playing.
  • Do not make posts about how you are going to kill yourself.  Just do it.
damn, nvm those forum rules have me feeling edgy

How many other devs of popular indie games or ones that have a cult following have you seen have such a vocal disdain and hatred for their players, especially just because they were a furry or had legitimate complaints about how they handled their game?
kinda strange to throw "just because they were a furry" and "had a legitimate complaint about how they handled their game" together like they are even in the same category. typically, people who have legitimate complaints or concerns with the game care about those sort of things, and don't get banned for expressing those concerns - but the people posting furry art don't last long...

"a decent sized moderation team"??? You mean Badspot who started to get lazy after appointing Ephialtes, who then later quit and was replaced by Rotondo who then also became inactive because he had his own game to work on? That's not what i would call a decently sized moderation team for how many users used to be active here 24/7 and then with how chaotic things got once the moderation started to die down after Ephi quit and it was mostly just Rotondo and occasionally a very selective Badspot for a while
there were more moderators than that, maybe you just don't remember - but as time went on, yes, there became less and less moderation.


please stop yelling
yeah lol chill
