Speaking strongly about religion on a public forum sure sounds like a great idea.

Duels, knife-flytes, and fisticuffs are for nerds and poseurs; 90% of people who would only semi-ironically support reinstating dueling as conflict resolution can't even use a knife to peel an apple, probably, much less doing something actually worthwhile with the piece of shit. like making apple rabbits

And that's probably a good thing! Not the fact most people can't make fruit look adorable moments before their craft is summarily devoured, but: that for all the internet et al's falchion fetishism, gladius-geekery and glaring-at of daggers with the heart eyes emoji (and do not tell me this is cudgel weapon erasure because I will (probably) get to that) next to nobody can use the damn things in mortal combat. Which, again, totally for the best. I have no personal evidence to bring to the table to support the argument that Stabs Are Bads, beyond getting bitten by the ass-end of a dirt bike when I was a Teen (which did teach me that "metal fucks up flesh good" and "confidence and cultural osmosis doesn't actually render you immune to metal-implement-based fuckups of the Midnight Dash To The 60-Kilometer Away Hospital variety"). Literally, the last fucking thing we need is the general populace improving at using murder-implements. This includes guns. I'm not asking for a nuanced counterargument about when a gun has a situational use because this is comedic hyperbole hour. No guns. No weapons. Pocket knives as a tool yes ok but every year you have to go to knife school and learn to carve a new animal out of fruit. It's for the betterment of mankind or something

Violence is not the answer. Perhaps gently mocking the concept of violence being the answer as a means to shame listeners out of the mindset that violence is the answer? If you want to be more to-the-point then Talking Shit Out is but oh god no. no not like that. do not codify wordmake of the successful convince-rhetoric tonic variant. Oh fuck I was too late and now we have debate.

Structured debate is a game like fencing or dueling, and rather like repainting a pedestrian crossing into a hopscotch board. The game and its rules only bring something worthwhile to the situation if a) the rules are easy for everyone and anyone to follow, b) refusal or inability to engage does not ban you from "crossing the street", and c) whatever pileup might result is considerate to the wellbeing of participants and bystanders alike. Few people leave the house jonesing to see some minds blown all across the tarmac, y'dig?

If as a society we all agree to play this fuckening game every time we fundamentally disagree with which side of the street wild circumstance has emplaced us on, that's weird but acceptable. (I mean, we've got precedent for agreeing to play along with games that have dumb+unfair bugs in the game design.) Formal Debate (much like, uuuuuuuh fuck, I dunno, Dwarf Fortress) is conceptually cool and good, except for the part where the actual people who think it's cool and good rarely have patience or accommodations or even the time of day for those who can't keep up. Then, even if they haven't succeed in convincing this Homo Strawpiens to take their side in the argument, they'll consider it a job well done because they're the one person who played by the rules in this I'm-gonna-blow-a-fuckening-gasketball match.

I can get especially season'd (salty, bitter, even umami if you substitute a consonant) over this whole topic because using empathy/appeals to emotion is cheap and Bad Debate Form so I guess I'm just mad about this because we're playing Smash Bros and my main is considered cheap and for noobs? Cuz The kind of shit I've half a mind to correct/convince people about are the kind of topics where my main argument comes from personal experience, including but not limited to destroying gender/divorcing (for specific contexts) the experience of the diaspora from the motherland/destroying monogamy/destroying capitalism/taking women's health seriously/being better as a society about mental health/consent culture/pizza discourse/the preponderance of masculine behaviours given greater value in debate/debate meta, basically, welcome to my rabbit hole hope you brought a fuckening parachute, Alice/the ethics of education/living in Japan/living in Japan and being foreign/living in Japan and being foreign but Japanese-"passing"/Fuckening Japan, man, none of that was actually an invitation for anyone to ask me to rant about this unless you yourself are Japanese or half-Japanese, in which case please honestly PM me instead and we can jam about it there. thanks in advance you gawkward sons of fucks

The Eagle Time Forums administrative ward is located at Forum ID 10; within are 15 threads, two of which are the solicitations of spambots Pinary sequestered in there for as-yet-uneventuated testing purposes. The last major discussion in there was back in July 2014; since then most changes to the forum were ones I eventually finangled by myself in a rather consistent lifecycle. This would take many moons of thinking it couldn't be done, then finding a solution and knocking that shit out in ten minutes flat.

Here's an incomplete list dating back to late 2011 of things I've mentioned as wanted fixed on the forum:

Fixing the advanced editor box layout
making spoiler tags fit the forum theme
unread message banner appearance update
unicode farts scattered through the vaults
announcements? important announcements???
member referrals needs removing from the memberlist search bar
the user control panel.
names of the [size] tags
changing the contact details section on user profiles

At this rate I should be done in time to offer Eagle Time as a discussion hub for Hivebent when it's released!!! Haha that's a joke

Interestingly, between you posting and my writing up this reply I did find a thing - I found the template which is the code for star ratings and also the location of the image that makes the stars change color when you mouse over them.

It's literally three stars on top of each other - yellow blue and clear. I'll link it when I get home then we can have a wild old party editing them to something less anti-aliased, so this subforum looks even more on-point hot garbage.

While we're at it remind me to pass a motion and make a thread so we can make and replace the existing post icons with better shit

I wanna a be no seeker, I wanna scream eureka

Greetings, bitmynahs! Welcome to Threskiorn Holdings Digilot Number 5, found as always at tid*=2250! This is a pre-recorded message from your host, Reigning Three-Time Daubr's Most Eligible Bachelord, Royalspoon Billionaire! Myself and Threskiron Holdings hopes you enjoy your Retina-Renta Textular Trashtype Experience, and rate it 5 Stars on ChirpAdvisor.

Vulture Future Bylaw 128-e requires we remind all flesh-based patrons to remove your Endoughmaker Thermosink Onsite SponsorProbes before leaving the premises, as continued use can result in hypothermia and inflated credit ratings. We don't mind, though. It's free Bitcorn for us, and every hour you log mining offsite is another entry for you into our weekly Peregreen Room Suite Life lottery!

We'd also like to remind all patrons, digital, analogue, or otherwise, that our services are not an extrapolation platform to amplify the awful slice of your proclivity trash-personage pie you have projected onto this digirealm. Trying to make this hundred-nozzle-strong dancing fountain or vinegar and vitriol about an actual human(?) being that happens to be you is boorish as all hell and short of paying my sweet spoonsome self by the paragraph for a custom roasting, this is the closest you proles'll be getting.

Royalspoon out!
