  1. A Go Fund Me was set up to aid the people of KyoAni. I tried to donate but the text box wouldn't let me type my name for some reason.

    I'll try again, later. https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-kyoani-heal

  2. The death count was 33 last I checked. Was it really arson? That's horrible.

      Yeah, it's absolutely awful. As someone who's had the misfortune of witnessing arson first-hand, this news left me utterly shocked and devastated.

  3. God dammit! Beaten in the Bloody Palace on the 99th floor again! First time was with V, this time was with Nero.

    Super characters aren't super enough.

      Who cares about silly things like a text box and a trophy that doesn't exist? You're free to play the game your way. You don't have to achieve hunter anything.

      Hey, if he wants to get it, he can get it! If he doesn’t want to, he doesn’t have to! What does Dan want here?

  5. Seeing this and how accurately it describes my behaviour makes me think I'm unoriginal.

      Don't see this as being "unoriginal". It's more like saying you're not alone, and you aren't the only person in the to possess such negative traits.

       

      I myself can be described like that when I was younger, though I did grow mostly out of that.

  6. I wish I'd stop procrastinating.

     

    ….I'll do it later.

  7. It's interesting to look at new and old art. I did this in 2018.

    And this in 2011.

  8. So I just watched one of the several YouTube animators I like and she admitted in the video that she pretty much learned how to animate by searching the term on YouTube.

    ….

    ….

    ….

    Why the hell didn't I think of that????

  9. I watch these and think, "I barely remember Sonic 06. I can't tell what's different."

    Could you do the light speed dash in Sonic 06?

      Oh my god can fans stop fucking remaking 06 and do a good Sonic game instead

      I'm still waiting for literally anyone to make an engine that feels like SA1/2 to play

      As somebody with mental health problems, I don't like that they are using it in this way to explain this horrible crime. I mean, a murderer is a sick f*cker for sure, but this person could simply be a racist b*st*rd.

  12. Oh dear...

    It's good that Tiny Jag spoke out against this behaviour.

    Though I don't really know what kind of event AfroFuture Fest is. I'm not hip to the current music trends...

  13. I enjoy this.

  14. A follow up from the update I made this morning.

    https://secure.avaaz.org/en/community_petitions/Walt_Disney_Marvels_Disney_refuse_SpiderMan_headstone_for_Ollie_Jones_sign_petition_ma_help_change_their_mind/

    Several YouTubers have created videos about Disney's horrible decision and one article had a link to a petition that was started by Ollie's uncle.

    I know petitions rarely work but maybe a heavy dose of backlash will get them to reverse the decision?

    P.S. Fuck Disney.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      It isn't really Disney's fault though. The decision is awful, but there's precedent behind it, as explained here: 

      (it's in the comments)

      Supposedly, if you allow one case of a trademark go unchallenged, as would be the situation here - you are relinquishing your trademark, which means any company could go unchallenged in making tons of knock-off products using Spider-Man's image, and Disney wouldn't be able to touch them legally. It seems to be a "all or nothing" matter.

      Still sucks that the law works like that, I fully believe they should be allowed to put Spidey on the tombstone.

      There's lots of reasons to hate Disney but this ain't one of them for me

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @Ryannumber1gamer Really? That sounds like a deeply flawed law. I'd always figured giving one person/company/party permission is just for that single person/company/party.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      @DanJ86

      Fairly certain that's copyright law. Trademark law on the other hand seems to be if you let one case slide, it basically invalidates it.

      @Ryannumber1gamer

      Just learned about a story from last year in which Marvel granted permission for Iron Man to appear on a child's gravestone.

      https://comicbook.com/marvel/2018/12/20/marvel-fan-ollie-gardiner-iron-man-headstone-cancer-battle/

      This is really confusing...

  15. Nothing like starting the day to horrible depressing news. I'm sharing it so fuck you Disney.

      First of all I'm really surprised that the council would make a fuss about needing copyright in the first place. I've seen headstones with copyrighted material on them before and I doubt that the rights holders would have been approached. I suppose this council also shuts down ice cream vans and fair ground rides with copyrighted characters on them? And secondly, this is a single headstone in a specific cemetery in England. Big fucking deal, Disney. I understand that they don't want to launch a range of licensed headstones and that this could lead to more requests. But really? What a crappy policy.

  16. I'm sure it's already been shared but I'm gonna share it again anyway.

    Uncle Mimic is actually active in this opening. Wonder if he'll be playable...

      I was wondering the same thing.

  17. Bowsette and Booette referenced in Neptunia OVA??

  18. Oh...I was gonna share this.

    But based on some updates I missed, it's already known? @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      AYUP! Exciting isn't it!?

  19. This is pretty cool in my opinion. The nostalgic music gave me chills. Plus it's less antagonistic towards men. @Ryannumber1gamer

      Now, if only this reflected the show we'll actually be getting, unlike the original actual trailer. 

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Fifty times better than the original.

      And what do you know, it turns out if you don't bring up the fact she is a woman 24/7 and women are totes better then men, it doesn't come off as completely chringey. Almost as if Batwoman is a strong female character and can let her actions reflect her strength instead of constantly stating it.

  20. I forgot that Google owns YouTube and Google as a company is...dodgy, to put it politely. So that calls YouTube into question too.

    I should really learn what an "algorithm" is. It's about numbers?? I'm crap with numbers...

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      An algorithm isn't exactly numbers, but rather an instruction set that defines a set of rules for a computer, system, or piece of software to follow. Sometimes, it can be for numbers, and calculations and the like, but can be used for problem-solving tasks too.

      So basically an algorithm defines the rules that YouTube's site and operations follow. When people talk about the infamous YT algorithm, it's because the standard for YouTube's algorithm is awful, always aiming to prop up those who are already famous, and gives incentive for uploading multiple videos a day. It causes a lot of channels to end up dead because of it (especially animation channels) and allows a lot of low-effort channels to make multiple videos today, for example - see Vailskibum94's videos.

      This is the same for their copyright bot. The algorithm for that is beyond fucked and allows for a lot of abuse of the system to steal profits from content makers on false charges, with a lot of people claiming they own copyrighted material when they don't.

      It's largely a massive issue with how automated YT is in general. Computers are defined by their algorithms, and very rarely is an algorithm air-tight. It allows for a lot of exploiting and abuse of the system.

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Animation channels?? Now that you mention it, even though I've subscribed to animation creators, it's very rare that they suggest a new creator I have not seen yet. That could ruin my plans that I've been preparing, though I have heard of some alternatives to YT.

  21. I don't wish to turn this into a missing persons forum. I'm practically unknown on twitter and don't know how else I could help.

    If anyone is in the California area, a YouTubers sister has been discovered missing.

    I don't know what else I can do. Sorry if I broke some rule or something.

  22. I wasn't going to post anything else today but something important had just hit me.

    Considering that I was laughed at for expressing how those in privileged positions should be kind to others in the past week, and now with Etika gone, it again highlights the importance of mental health. It doesn't take effort to be nice.

    Anyway, I need to finish a promise I made and then maybe I could help with those trying to raise money in some way. Take care.

  23. Depression is a bitch. You need determination to get through it and perhaps social media really took a toll on him, like he said.

    I'll spend the rest of the day offline in honour of his memory. I didn't even know Etika, but it's still upsetting to hear of a fellow human ending their own life.

  24. https://movieweb.com/avengers-endgame-lexi-rabe-bullying-video/

    I never though bullies would go as far as to harass a 7 year old. That's not nice and nothing has even been confirmed yet.

  25. Apparently they are hinting at a new character? They can't recall his name. lol
