I just thought it'd be helpful to correct a miss-assumption understandably made by people who haven't played the game or talked to anyone who've played the game. I'm not saying don't hate it, I'm just saying hate it accurately.
If you think it's the worst thing ever that's cool, just maybe appreciate that other people might not? Like at least for some people having a kinkslist doesn't mean every character and RP interaction is going to be sexual, it just means that if RP becomes sexual you know what the other person does and doesn't want you to do to their butt.
And while you can hate what you hate again at least for some people there is a difference between adults in physically immature bodies and underage characters. I know I'd personally find a 20 year old with the mental age of a 13 year old a lot more disturbing than visa versa, but hey, that's me, you do you man. Just maybe can we find our way to appreciating that people can hold a view like that and not be a worshipper of Satan?
There is so much wrong with this, I am not sure where to begin.
- In the eyes of the law, a 20 year old with a mental capacity of 13 might as well as be a child, regardless of their physical age.
- Just because some people might be into this, does not make it right. It should not be allowed to be perpetuated. Even on TV, there is no glorification of this mental illness.
- This type of place is a stain on the hobby. Even Shang didn't stoop to this level of blatant in your face of it. We all knew it was happening, but it was something not talked about. That's a bit easier to ignore, because it's just RP. This... Yeah.
If you support this game, you should be ashamed of yourself. I am all for freedom of speech, and that's what this technically is, but there is such a thing of moral decency and in our community, we really don't look too kindly on this. @Staricide if I were you, I'd just stop defending this place before you get a reputation that you don't want.

Poor Daniel Jackson... Poor poor Daniel Jackson. And how are we ever going to survive without the passive aggressive MacGuyver jokes... The Humanity!
RE: Tablet keyboard
To be fair some of the hate on Apple is due to the way Apple presents themselves and isolates themselves from the main stream. A prime example of this is that Apple has gone out of its way to make sure that gaming on a Mac is a less than full-filling endeavor. This is not to say that I have a hate for Apple or anything, just that they've done enough marketing to encourage this OS war stupidity. Apple is superior in some aspects, Unix is superior in some aspects and wait for it.... Windows is superior in some aspects. There is no "Perfect" OS, and I use all three in my house.

I want a creepy clingy AI hotel
I want creepy clingy AI hotels to be PCs.
RE: The Haul
I got a 80" QLED TV for my living room. So I could finally move the 50" into my bedroom for the Playstation 4 Pro and Switch goodness.

I think what disturbs me most is that the original comment ('I know I'd personally find a 20 year old with the mental age of a 13 year old a lot more disturbing...') implies they'd be totally OK with sex with a 13-year-old who is 'mature for their age.'
When I was 15/16, I actually pulled out my ID on three separate occasions to prove to people I wasn't 20+. I developed young, so I looked older than I was (to the extent that twice I got offered/served alcohol without question while out with my parents).
That 'maturity' and shit didn't matter when a guy who was 21 began trying to hook up with me while I was 15. The whole rest of the group came down on it.
Physical or mental: sex with someone underage is wrong.
Oh absolutely. I mean I've been able to buy alcohol without being carded since I was 15. That doesn't really make it legal. And you're right, I didn't quite glean that from that on the first reading. I think the whole place needs to be burned down and the creator taken to be beaten soundly with the Stick of Common Decency and Sense(tm).

RE: Magicy Shenanigans - high fantasy or more modern
What about Cinematic Unisystem for a system. Magic from like Witchcraft and Armageddon is pretty wide open in some areas.
RE: Why no Star Trek games?
I think a lot has to do with the Military style setting more.than anything. I think the game would need to be like DS9 to allow for the most wide range of PC concepts to make it work.
RE: Gauging Interest in a new Erotic RP MU* (with anonymous survey)
The claiming of sleeping beauty. That would be an interesting setting.
For anyone who knows me, I am stepping away from the hobby while I heal. I woke up this afternoon to find my Husband of 11 years finally lost his battle with addiction in the form of an overdose. For those who know my characters just expect them to be afk for a while.
RE: Good TV
@Jynxbox I agree, and for me the poor production values of the musical numbers is part of the charm. The way I see it is, that she is interpreting their heart songs, and because she's a crappy dancer, she doesn't know any better, so everyone is a crappy dancer. This for me is part of the charm. I personally love the show, everything about it.
RE: Good TV
Ugh, the more I watch Motherland: Fort Salem the more I wish it was a viable universe to rp in, but I don't see how it would work. I'm sure system mechanics could be found, but I don't think there would be so many people interested in the theme.
I think the only way this theme would work is if the PCs were either Spree or the Spree won and they were fighting back against odds.
RE: Replacing Hardcoded +Help with Softcoded +Help on RhostMUSH
@Obie In the netrhost.cnf make sure you disable the +help commands. It is far down but if you look you will see it.
RE: The Work Thread
@Macha said in The Work Thread:
So I finally got a call from IT. I am now able to set up to work from home. I have a Zoom conference at 2, and they have some mystery project they want me to work on.
I am not putting on work clothes for this. They can live with my Star Wars "Rebel Scum" t-shirt and my Quarantine hair, don't care ponytail.
Especially since I'm not on the clock for today
Use the Enterprise Bridge Background or something else wildly inappropriate
RE: Real World Peeves, Disgruntlement, and Irks.
To follow up with that, most management meds, the manufacturers have discount programs and/or free programs for some patients. It might be worth reaching out to them?
RE: The Work Thread
So I get to "Work" as we are all working remotely and our chats are filled with general vitriol about being laid off. A few of us are planning on taking our equipment back, but due to gathering rules we are trying to stagger them. It's very surreal to see 60 people going through the stages of grief remotely. Some are panicking, as they are older people and they are concerned about life after Covid19.
