      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.

  3. 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...

  4. I enjoy this.

  5. 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...

  6. 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.

      I was wondering the same thing.

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

      AYUP! Exciting isn't it!?

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

      Impressive stuff. The Banjo mod that got my attention before was an Zelda OOT crossover:

      I was intrigued just from the attention to detail in Banjoifying the Zelda maps and music and vice versa in some instances.
       

  17. I don't usually succumb to outrage like others might, unless it's deeply personal or being mean to others. So I rarely agree with anger backlashes, but with Netflix Evangelion, I totally understand and agree.

    It especially seems strange to tamper with Kaworu and Shinji's interaction in Pride Month.

    I don't agree with being mean to the new voice actors though. They did nothing wrong, I believe the blame belongs to Netflix alone.

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Is Pride Month as much of a thing in Japan anyway?? Like, they may feature several series with at least one presence of LGBT, but do the majority of those who live there actively accept and support it?

      Are they just now picking up on how controversial it is elsewhere??

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @SupahBerry Um, are you actually aware of what I'm talking about? Netflix is an American media service provider and Neon Genesis Evangelion is a 20 year old anime that had been previously dubbed by a company that no longer exists.

      The anime had a male character openly say he loved another male character in the original dub and the new Netflix dub had changed it to "like" as well as failing the show in other aspects. Japan has done nothing wrong in this instance....well, to my knowledge anyway. 

    3. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      @DanJ86 At least according to @Jacky, the prime suspect is the original creator themselves-

      Quote

      The Eva stuff is actually not Netflix's fault, they just paid to have it on their service, it's literally Studio Khara (the studio that owns the rights to Eva, lead by Eva's creator Anno) doing. They had a full control on the localization this time around and pretty much steered the dub/sub script to be 100 percent accurate to the original, which def is a detriment

      So to let the first dub get away scott free with the gay relationship and then outright commanded the new dub to go "Uup. Changed my mind" sounds senseless, but they might've heard all the riots in the West and assumed they couldn't actually handle that subject.

      I heard something about the translation but hadn't been shown a source for the info. It's confusing because the Reborn Movies are much more open about that characters feelings of love.

  18. Is censorship a good thing? Nintendo used to do it, Sony are cracking down on it and Microsoft are doing something different with it, to the point of openly stating that "Xbox Live isn't a free speech platform."

      I wouldn't call this censorship really. Microsoft is within their right, and in the right, to try and curb assholish behavior on their platform.

      Not that familiar with xbox live but people have said you can do that anyway. By muting them? But I don't really know.

  19. Just learned in my Autism Group that the term Aspergers had to retire from use due to the man it was named after having secret ties to the Nazis.

    I don't know how to link the article while on my phone. 

    1. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Huh. I had heard "Aspergers" was not being used anymore a while ago. This was something I was not aware of.

      what

      huh

      since when

      how did this happen

    5. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @Polkadi~♪ It looks to be a fairly recent discovery, like over the past couple of years. The article that Indigo shared goes into greater details but the reason it hadn't come to light sooner, appears to be because it was thought that Hans Asperger's records had been destroyed at a specific bombing incident which hit a hospital he worked at during World War 2.

      There was already talks of removing the term Aspergers, but only in name. The condition is still a recognized social difficulty but I think the people that decide these things have merged it into the Autistic Spectrum.

      That's what it sounds like to me anyway.

       

  20. With spending more time on other websites, I've come to realise that I'm very interested in the opinion of others and how they reached it. So I watched this video and found it fascinating.

    It's a video from youtuber, YoungRippa59. He's a big comic book fan and seems quite chill about the heavier subjects.

    Anyway, I'm not black and since I'm British, most of my history class covered history within the UK, so stuff like Malcom X is new territory for me. (I've heard of him, but I was also badly educated. My school was sh*t.)

    My opinion of the subject matter is irrelevant, I just found it all interesting. (I should admit though, that some terms used did confused me. So I'm heading to the dictionary.)

  21. I have a sneaking suspicion that somebody I know would approve of this.

      An incident took place in which I was treated like a laughing stock. I thought I could get past it but I'm becoming more irritable as time goes by.

      Getting over things has never been easy. If my mood sours anymore, I might even end up lashing out at my friends which I don't want.

      I'm not all that great at comforting myself but I'm always around if you need to sound off and just get the negative emotions off your chest. Hopefully you've calmed down at least a little since then and are finding better ways to address your emotions, and if not I'll be up all night lurking around so.
