Re: Grumbly Things Go Here

Is that like jet lag? :eh: HA! :lol: No. I am just so fed up with 'socializing' via online web conferencing software that makes it feel more like work and less like hanging out with family/friends. https://i.redd.it/mtzhkw3hnkk61.png ;) In my experience this is a side effect of people realizing jus...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

If Staff Meetings are Hell.... then listening to someone else's Staff Meetings are the lowest level of Hell. The joys of a spouse working from home... Who was it that said "Hell is other people?" Maybe a worse Hell is "other people's other people." I remember a friend of mine sa...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

Hi Keith! Ten years ago it was noisy here but nowadays it’s a small community pretty focused on gaming. It’s lightly moderated but only because the crowdfunding hawkers stay in their designated areas and everyone left is pretty agreeable and/or courteous. I hang around here all the time, and I hate...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

This conversation has reminded me that I need to delete my facebook account. I've been saying that for 5 years but I keep forgetting to do it. Jesus fuck! YOU CAN'T! All you can do is schedule it for deletion. God, I hate facebook. They want to make sure you have a chance to chicken out :P. Inciden...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

Every format that is not gamified and made deliberately addictive operates at an enormous disadvantage relative to those that do. Which is why over the last 15 years or so the internet has gone from a tool that you use by typing a URL into a bar on the top of the screen to a collection of about eig...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

Even on the discord my friends and I use, we pretty much only use it for voice or for sharing links relative to what we are talking about or playing at the time. Sine we use it for voice in games, we end up inviting a lot of people who end up shitting up the lobby with inane banter so we have limit...

Re: Random Forum Thoughts.

I don't know if it's Facebook, but something has been progressively luring people away from forums like this one. In the FtB case, I know there is a Discord forum that appears to have taken much of the traffic that used to come here. I had a look but I really dislike the whole style and feel of the...

Re: Random RPG thoughts

Word of caution, people who don't figure this out instinctively by the time they're about 12 don't have a great record of figuring it out ever. In my experience this is profoundly true, and I would even broaden it to just being polite and thoughtful in general. I would put it a few years later. I k...

Which is a huge shame because it is by far the coolest version of that mechanic thematically, that's set up and foreshadowed in the level.
