  • In Time to look at the rules. (Meta)

    @DarkChaplain I'd draw a difference between singing the praises of your favorite intoxicant and encouraging children to use it illegally. The first one has its place; the second one should absolutely not be allowed. So on that we're in agreement. Please do take it up with the mods.

    And I think my point about Kirn not liking the specific rules he's fallen afoul of is a fairly obvious one. Were I in his situation, I'd probably do the same thing. But in light of the alternative, which is to be less of a blatant, unapologetic asshole (again not an accusation, but a title worn with pride) it's still a downright rotten thing to do.

  • In Time to look at the rules. (Meta)

    Firstly, violently opinionated tirade interjections aside, I think this is a pretty constructive meta post, on the whole.

    Secondly, a lot of the redundancy in the rules comes from the fact that different legal jurisdictions consider ToS enforceable or not, and Rules enforceable or not. For some countries it's both, for some it's neither, and for some it's one or the other. Local laws may vary and for an international site it's hard to cover all of your bases.

    Third, there's a bug report form for technical support issues. It's better not to clutter the forum with it. I really don't care to silence bug reports or technical issues, but if they're issues with the ZeonBBS software, it's probably best to forward them straight to the manufacturer, which is ZF. Anything else just becomes a headache for the staff manning CL and it's really not their problem.

    Fourthly, there's a very specific law about the online interactions of children under 13 in the US called the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. The rule about age is to comply with that law, nothing more.

    Finally, I will leave the results of selective enforcement of "respect everyone" to the reader. The staff, in its discretion, has permitted several things that I personally do not believe to be respectful behavior. But that's not my place to decide.

    Now for the part I couldn't say as a staff member.

    Be transparent, though. @Kirn, you know a lot of these rules are aimed at you specifically. You've been so disruptive to the normal operation of the site that you wear it as a badge of honor. And here you present a "constructive solution" like a wooden horse to the Trojans.

    The ulterior motive here is to redraw the rules to conveniently avoid making your disruptive behaviors a violation of them. That would be pretty corrupt, don't you think?

    I actually agree that the terms, rules, and guidelines need a thorough revision by someone qualified. But they shouldn't be redrawn to conveniently make your negative, antisocial behavior beyond reproach. That's ridiculous.

    Edit: @DarkChaplain contributing to the delinquency of a minor is already illegal in California, isn't it? I think that goes beyond site ToS into a legal complaint.

  • In REVIEW: The Turcom Huion Tablet and why you shouldn't buy it.

    I had a Bamboo tablet for a very long time and it was good enough even for general computing tasks that I played RTS games with it when I wasn't drawing.

    I can't speak for the Turcom but I replaced my Bamboo with a more expensive Manhattan tablet and the missing precision was definitely noticeable.

  • In Inori Aizawa: Shall we explore the web?

    It's absolute blatant pandering of the most cutting edge tech-unfriendly browser to the young and geeky.

    And what's amazing is that it's working. I've seen Inori gifs all over my tumblr, twitter, facebook...

    Got skinned alive in normals today by a pro player. Lost lane like 1/5 but our team was strong enough to pull it out (Riven had 27 kills) and I got my revenge kills too. Morgana support is scary when she hits 100% of her shots
