    Would you a molest a child to save its life?

    It's a matter of having a sense of good taste. Go and take this hypothetical into the real world, go to your place of employment and ask your collegues to entertain this particular hypothetical. You'll soon find that most people find that entertaining the hypothetical of raping a child to save...

    On Restarting Video Production...

    Just don't care about your delusional crusade for frozen peaches. You take some stuff way too seriously to the point it just becomes a big joke. Case in point, your struggle with uploading videos to YouTube in the rare case that they might get removed at some point.

    Facing Worlds #1

    Change the font and font size on those captions, it's borderline unreadable. Although the spirit of the joke of the entire comic is alright, the lines in the last cell are cringeworthy. Having said that, the quality of the lines is on par with that of the art, so there's some thematic link there.

    On Restarting Video Production...

    Just upload them to YouTube for the time being. If and when they get removed from YouTube, you can always re-upload them to whatever crappy free hosting you'll be able to find at that point in time. As long as you're not going to host videos that promote and deal in planning an insurrection, I...

    Greetings to everyone from The Escapist!

    Not that I care one way or another, but banning away their user base has been the name of the game for these past 5-6 years on the Escapist, you ought to be used to it by now. Personally I'm more a fan of extended time-out systems, but that conversation is neither here nor there.

    Thoughts on Making a Comic

    Drawing comics is fun, good ol' fun. But what story do you want to tell?

    Doesn't help that development resources of their forum are locked behind their rather expensive license 🤷‍♂️

    Can trolling be prevented?

    Hardly. Most people who troll are well aware of their behaviour*, timing them out for a set period of time wouldn't be an absurd measure to take. I'm pretty sure that even mister Houseman here knows fully well what behaviour of his lead to his getting banned on The Escapist, his whining and...

    We can have (mostly) working badges!

    Well yeah, it's easy to take pictures from Google Image Search and squashing them in little 40x40 or whatever boxes. But coming up with fun, varying and potentially meaningful ways of getting them is the part that takes more effort and time. There are a portion that can be given away for X...

    Can trolling be prevented?

    Easy way to prevent trolling is to ban the people who troll and hope that they do the necessary self reflection to better themselves.

    We can have (mostly) working badges!

    Part of what made them fun to interact with for users was the fact that there were a ton of them and the ability to order them, allowing people to customise the look on their posts. Little personalisations like that and having lots of stuff to do on a site can go a long way. The badge system...

    Greetings to everyone from The Escapist!

    Get over yourself 😂 Sad to see you get banned, Drathnoxis, you were one of the posters I genuinely liked. I hope you don't become an eternal sourpuss about it like some people.

    We can have (mostly) working badges!

    Primarily speaking their function would be to boost user engagement on the website. But on a site this small with a handful of users, don't think it'll be much of an effective tool 🤷‍♂️. As for the topic, don't bother to imitate a system if you're doing it through off the shelve plugins that...

    Greetings to everyone from The Escapist!

    You can chalk that up to them using off the shelve XenForo plugins rather than having a team that custom builds plugins to order. A bit like those thousands of RPGMaker games out there that all use the same Plugin Library and hack and botch together stuff that all looks half-right and half-the...

    Would you support a paid YouTube alternative?

    How would creators paying to upload material protect them from copyright lawyers taking down that hypothetical site, exactly? Because to create a video website is to create a pirate's haven. And to create a pirate's haven is to seek government's wrath. Or would you become the content curator...
