Quote from: LunarDusk on 2016 Sep 25, 14:03:13Hue, I'd say the same for both of you I was on a sim called Gaia Online which is pretty much beyond dead these days and I ran across an avatar that caught my interest which caused me to type in "I see you...Ghastly". Then someone next to my avatar says Thats not Ghastly thats a pokemon, and I say yep Ghastly is a pokemon. At this point im just under the assumption of troll until the part they just say that "I play pokemon GO I know what I'm talking about." which I responded, I played Pokemon since 2000 and ones from 1998 and if they did play pokemon go then they would be able to recognize those form the kanto region. Then they just say that I didnt and I'm like 10 and Pokemon Go is the only version thats playable finishing off with I've never played pokemon. .......Just....(yes I screen shotted the conversation)Then theres the part where I list the games I played which is kinda long" Yellow, BLue, Red, Gold, silver, Crystal, Stadium1/2, Colosseum, XD, RSE, Fire Red, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum< Mystery Dungeon Blue/Red/Time/Darkness/Sky, Heartgold, Black, White2, X, Alpha Sapphire." Then they just say "Get real, those aren't even real games. You're just listing fake ones, the only games that exists are X and Y and the rest was on anime."At this point im just facepalming repeatedly...like...wow....just....wowI'm done...

Quote from: Sweet Brew on 2016 Sep 29, 11:07:16 Laptops aren't meant to be on 24/7 like desktops are.I turn mine on and off daily.
Quote from: Chishio Kunrin on 2016 Sep 29, 19:34:09I put mine into sleep mode when I'm not using it. Unfortunately, my laptop has this stupid thing where, if I shut it down, when I boot it back up and check how long Task Manager says my laptop has been on for, it pretty much acts like my laptop didn't get shut off at all. The only way to reset the counter to 0 is to restart.I saw a post where someone said they find it disturbing that, they assume, Miles and Kerry (the writers of RWBY) either never took college writing classes or decided that Rooster Teeth is too good for college. And they went on to wonder if they could make a petition demanding that Miles and Kerry resign for their inexperience.Here's the incredibly ridiculous thing about that opinion:Monty Oum - The creator of RWBY, who was praised for his animation skills, especially the action scenes and their choreography... did not take college classes to learn how to animate. In fact, he taught himself.Jeff Williams - The man who writes the songs for RWBY (writing the lyrics and, I believe, composing the music of said songs), who has been praised for the songs he writes... did not take college classes to learn music. He tried to, but he ended up teaching himself. Each time a new RWBY soundtrack goes up in iTunes, it rockets its way up the list. Even back in volume 1, when RWBY had its bumps and issues, people still agreed that the songs were great.Monty Oum and Jeff Williams self-taught instead of taking college classes. So, you can sit right down and zip up that mouth, good sir.Just because you didn't learn how to do something in college, that doesn't mean you're bad at it. I would share my view of why the writing had its snags prior to volume 3, but... I am quite paranoid that I could get some negative responses for being "disrespectful", when that is not what I intend from my views. I try to view it as objectively as possible, using information from crew members themselves.

Quote from: Chromastone64 on 2016 Sep 29, 20:35:44I have a friend at college who's indifferant to RWBY, but says he despised Volume 2, claiming it's all just "filler"....Ok, I may have forgotten most of the little things, but I'm PRETTY FREAKING SURE it wasn't just "filler". It's called character development...Also, it took me three tries before I had to scroll and check how "volume" was spelt...
Quote from: Sweet Brew on 2016 Sep 29, 22:15:24 ROFL, What would a petition do?It's a free country, it's not like the government will come and shut them down.I always love it when those little rule makers try something "Law" related and they forget that it means nothing.It's like some dude reported Bakasan94 for banning him.He claimed it was "Against the law" because he had freedom of speech. The internet is not America, You're American rights are not portable, little celdurps. The server host can do whateeever they want.
Quote from: Stardust Dragon on 2016 Oct 02, 21:14:02On the topic of EQG4...Spoiler: showTwilight's song "The Midnight in Me" wasn't bad per se, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Why? Probably because the word "Midnight" was given negative connotation...and my main OC/ponysona's name IS Midnight Storm, commonly shortened to Midnight. So had to fend off the "being personally attacked" thought a little in order to enjoy it, just because I happened to choose a name they'd use later on. Whoops.
Quote from: Jcfraven on 2016 Oct 02, 21:17:43Spoiler: showMidnight was used in that way, as the middle of the night yields the greatest darkness(even though technically that may not actually be true, but it is thought of like that). It was to showcase the darkness of that other side of her.Personally, I loved that song, but I will not delve into why, for a few reasons.
Quote from: Stardust Dragon on 2016 Oct 02, 23:06:33Spoiler: showOh I understand the reason behind it's use. It's just the less-rational parts of my brain took it as an attack on my character, my choice of name for something that represents a big part of me, because over-sensitivity. I fully realize it's stupid, which is why I posted it here on "Dumb things"; it's more accurate to say I'm annoyed at myself for even thinking like this to begin with. Besides some of the other lyrics feeling forced (which is a common problem with Ingram's work for me) I also enjoyed that song.Though on the topic of "the greatest darkness", it does annoy me a little that the dark vs light metaphor is brought up relatively often in a world where one of the prevailing rulers IS the night itself, at least figuratively. I understand why darkness is seen and used like that, but I thought with Luna we were trying to look past the darkness and see that appearances aren't the full story.
Quote from: Jcfraven on 2016 Oct 02, 23:19:25Spoiler: showI believe that what the show was going for was that the darkest parts of the world, and the Lost, can be brought to Light, but that we must be willing to open up the Truth, and spread the Light.Beyond that, darkness is used in that way, because of the fact that the dark is where you can barely see, where the light seems to be covered, where influences of our mind can consume us. Even though I do like the night, what I mentioned is still worth acknowledging. The Darkening of the Spirit is the destruction of who one is, which is what is demonstrated by the Light versus Dark thing.
