    I looked up the iOS port. Requires iOS 12. Are you seriously suggesting that my iPhone 5c is not powerful enough to run a game that you could play on a Nokia, ffs.

    Keith ballard does really extensive slow let's plays, 100%ing almost every game he plays. He has a really large backlog too - I particularly recommend his witness series

    Recently I've discovered MASTER BOOT RECORD. Normally I'm not much of a metal fan, but the way he blends melodic electronic music with harsher sounds is really good. Good music for programming imo

    Fair enough. I don't care about the ability myself, I was just wondering how the system worked.

    I have posted a few topics on tildes so far, and someone edited the tags on it. I looked at that person's profile but couldn't see any indication that they were a mod. I am aware of the coming 'trysf' system, but I think it hasn't been implemented yet. My question: how does one edit tags? Is this a certain account age required?

    I think "change for change's sake" is pervasive among start-ups at the moment. Whilst larger companies will have a diverse range of products or services, these entrepreneurs often have an idea for one thing. Once that thing is made, the companies often stagnate, pushing pointless UI overhauls (see Snapchat) or removing features to "streamline the user experience" (see Skype). I really think these companies need to work on a more diverse set of products rather than staking it all on one platform that will inevitably fall out of favour some day.

    As tildes gets more popular, and comment trees grow, the practicality of the "Post Comment" box being at the bottom of the comment tree decreases. Possible solutions to this range from simply moving it above the tree, or having it as a static block in a corner of the page. Have you thought about this issue?

    Sorry, rereading my comment made me realise that I got vertical and horizontal the wrong war around.

    Whilst this would work well in mobile, on desktop horizontal space is cheaper than vertical space imo

    Whilst cogmimd is still in early access, the sheer quality d quantity of content amazes me. Cogmimd is a sci-fi rougelike where you can pick up parts from your dead enemies and attack them to you.

    Half Life 2 was my first real non-flash game. Coming from the world of jumpy, disjointed boundaries between gameplay and story, hl2 was a refreshing change. The way the story is told through character interactions and atmosphere was so different to "You finish the level. You get a story segment. Repeat." that I was confused at the start - I was expecting the g-man speech to be a massive, 10min long monologue with exposition everywhere.

    Whilst I am no fan of reddit's redesign, one of the features I liked about it was the way you could click on a indent line to collapse the child comments at that level. Whilst tildes displays these indent lines, clicking on them does nothing, and you have to scroll up to get to the collapse button. Another possible solution would be to collapse comments under the cursor when a hotkey is pressed, although this could be awkward due to both mouse and keyboard being used.
