    Woah what? This is a surprise but a welcome one. Honestly if I think hard, it just makes Disney look worse in my eyes for going back on themselves when they either realized tossing him was bringing more heat than having him, or that they needed him. Either way though I really don't care, I'm just glad to see Gunn back on the movie.

  2. Comment on Reddit has banned r/watchpeopledie in ~tech

    Alright fair enough, but the fact that this is just a PR move to make themselves look better while other content like hate speech is perfectly okay on the website puts it in a different light....

    Alright fair enough, but the fact that this is just a PR move to make themselves look better while other content like hate speech is perfectly okay on the website puts it in a different light. It's just a spineless, half assed move honestly. Reddit didn't care to ban them until they were getting heat, and suddenly they have to shield the community. Bullshit. If they wanted to ban them fine, but not like this.

  3. Comment on In the future, will we have the ability to mute and/or block users? in ~tildes

    Here's a possible suggestion: what if "blocking" on Tildes just means you don't receive notifications from that person and also they can't pm you?

  4. Comment on Things to consider with visual novels in ~games

    Visual novels take more work than a light novel, manga, etc but they also allow you to be more free and open and let the player have a bit of fun at the helm. This can also allow you to get more in depth with your characters and show how they might behave in different situations without cutting into the canon of your story or having to do some sort of spin off or something of the likes. They're all decent mediums though and it's really up to you how you feel your story would be best.

    Another thing to consider: do you have writing experience? Programming? Art? If none of the above, it may just be easier to stick to a more traditional format and gain some experience before delving head first into a complicated medium.

  5. Comment on Why open source projects don't charge (while keeping the code open)? in ~comp

    Fair enough, I've done so too on a few occasions. I actually once did it while speaking to Stallman himself... that was embarrassing.

    As an aspiring FOSS dev, you have to understand that they don't do it for money, or praise, or whatever. They do it because they like giving to the community and building better software. They do it because they enjoy the freedom of using their software how they want, and they want others to enjoy this freedom with software they write. It doesn't make sense to charge when you're trying to give back. Donations, sure.

    Well I don't do it for optimization. I do it because I like it, and I'm using it while I customize it, so shrug.

    Oof man, I can't imagine not spending hours and hours of my life tweaking every little thing to my desires. Literally everything about my PC I've spent hours tweaking, crying, etc trying to get right. It's a custom built desktop, with Arch Linux installed, riced Awesome WM, riced SDDM... I even riced my bootloader. To each their own, I suppose.

    Certainly not an unpopular opinion, it's just that people who are neutral about cats never bring it up.

    I think FOB has a lot of talent, even in their new stuff. Although I don't actively listen to it, I can appreciate it and enjoy it if it comes on.

    Funny. For me it's the opposite, I have baby hands so PS controllers are perfect but xbox controllers are really hard on my thumbs especially.

    Of course the companies won't. The sad truth is, they don't give one shit about us users.
