    I poked at it briefly and it looks like it would be good if I hadn't already rice'd my setup for TST (does it still count as rice'ing if it isn't a desktop?). Seems like reasonable defaults and like it doesn't seem as fiddly as TST is. But, since I've already done the fiddling, there's no advantage to me swapping.

    I've had good luck with groups of 10 or fewer people, but that's much more a groupchat with channels than it is a traditional community.

    I haven't done any research here, but I'd definitely believe that it can be case dependent and we've just had different experiences.

    I used to use Apollo, but spending that much time on my phone was giving me RSI issues, so I ended up stopping.

    I guess I'll continue with my various niches then. It works, but it definitely seems like once a subreddit hits 100k subscribers or so, things go downhill.

    Really? In my experience, it's followed the pattern of:

    1. Class is awarded $X
    2. Lawyers take Y% of $X
    3. Lead plaintiff(s) take Z% of $X
    4. All remaining money is distributed to all identified class members that agreed to be bound by the settlement (depending on the specifics of the case, this can mean more money for people who were hurt more or for longer or can be an evenly split payout)

    Naturally, the specifics of the numbers X, Y, and Z are dependent on the particulars of the case.

    And that's apparently what I get for taking bets for imaginary internet points without doing any research first. I guess we'll see what happens in a few months.

    It's about the physical scale of everything and the perspective granted by truly being in the scene in first person. The classic example is seeing a picture of the Grand Canyon in a magazine compared to seeing it in real life. I've also heard people describe a similar effect seeing things in IMAX for the first time (I didn't get that effect personally though).

    It feels more real because more of the bits of your brain that decide where you are (in the game or in the room) get convinced you're in the room.
