    It is really good news to me that Amazon is still plowing on ahead with their Dark Tower show following the abysmal Idris Elba / Matthew McConaughey movie. The Dark Tower universe and lore is so well done and I would love to see the series brought to life.

    I think it is a great choice to start with the early days of Roland the Gunsliger back when Gilead was still around, but falling apart. Wizard and Glass is by far my favorite book in the Dark Tower series and would be a phenomenal start to a show after his training.

    lol, that is a good point. I guess it doesn't seem to go over much plot other than "astronaut lady returns to Earth and has issues." The trailer seems to focus more on tone and aesthetic which I thought was a cool way to draw me in. I probably would not be much interested in this movie if I had not seen some of the more unusual shots and techniques here.

    Yep, i just went ahead and did that. I would have kept the original had the top comment not been edited to further complain about the situation.

    Reposting this as the original link was biased and had less information and the comments were very meta on the post rather than Trump giving a platform for a foreign leader and tacit endorsement of hate.

    Im pretty skeptical of Double Fine after their last few games and Rad seems pretty bland / boring, especially for a gane coming oit in just a couple months.

    I also dont think there is any harm in asking questions here to understand why certain decisions have been made.

    You don't see any problems with people just changing links on the site and title of post when they like?

    No, because the very few tines it has happened reasonabke explanations have been given.

    If the ability were being abused then deimos has made it clear that action would be taken against them.

    So I guess if I post something I should expect these special people to change my title and link as they see fit?

    I have submitted hundreds of topics here (i believe only deimos and algernon have posted more than me) and I have only had two titles or urls changed out of all the posts made to my recollection. That seems entirely reasonable to me.

    Is there a public log of all the activity by the "normal users with extra powers"?

    No and to my knowledge there is no plan for a global public mod log.

    I also disagree with the reason for the change in the title, while it may seem like a small change it only further sparked discourse about one word in the title and detracted from the actual discussion.

    I submitted the post and was happy with the changes to the url and title to be more accurate and less biased. If I had the ability to modify either after the fact I would have given the feedback.

    This trailer is so well made. The soundtrack is on point, the costumes are perfect, and the nailed the 80s aesthetic so well.

    I was hoping this season's story drags a little less than season 2 and the trailer is helping assauge that concern for me.

    I am hyped as hell right now.

    Only a handful of users have additional moderator like powers on the site at the moment, mostly topic editing and moving post from one space to another. An even smaller subset can edit post titles. I think only deimos may be able to edit links.

    This is all based on a trust system and while limited now to certain handpicked users / volunteers, will grow to more as Tildes future trust system is implemented.

    If anyone abused their moderator powers they would have them revoked.

    The topic log also helps keep folks accountable.

    Exactly. Trump still tacitly endorsed Bolsonaro and gave him a platform for his hate. That is still newsworthy and warrants a discussion.
