  1. Yeah, no, it's just a spambot going off keywords. I would recommend people search the username off a forum spam blacklist (like Stop Forum Spam) if they're not sure about it.
  2. After a lot of people requesting it, the game list now has comments!
  3. You already can, Sort By→Ross's Rating. This is a pretty commonly asked question, does anyone have ideas for making this more obvious?
  4. https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/All-Knowing_Vortigaunt
  5. Sort By→Ross's Rating should do it for the moment. We did have buttons for the ratings, but Ross decided against it since the vast majority aren't rated.
  6. It's more dummied out, really. I'll see if I can get it disabled.
  7. Yeah, you can search across the whole site but you can also search for games only (specifying the content type); I personally think that having another searchbar that serves the same purpose is a little redundant. EDIT: Perhaps it could be made more obvious, but I don't have any good ideas for that.
  8. There is a search feature, in the top right corner of the website.
  9. All of that should be fixed now, thanks for letting me know.
  10. It seems like there's enough material for a follow-up episode already (the next episode is also a follow-up, pretty good coincidence there).
  11. Good episode, glad to see some more game archaeology!
  12. That's odd. I tried reporting a post as spam on my test account and it worked fine with no problems. Can you provide some more info?
  13. There's https://www.accursedfarms.com/donations/ on this very website.
  14. @polymerize-finale & @William: yeah, those questions are supposed to go in the Reddit thread, sorry for the confusion. Should the comment sections for future videochat question posts be locked?
  15. Extended version: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vaNfqOv3rStBQ4_lR-dwGb8DGPhCJpRDF-q7gqtdhGA/edit Ross should probably add it to the video description.
  16. https://invidio.us/watch?v=tUAX0gnZ3Nw Watching it through this client fixed it for me.
  17. Even if he wasn't in the European Union, the videos would definitely be affected, unless Youtube were to block access to/segregate its videos for people in the EU.

  19. AFAIK, Ross does not currently use Half-Life 2: Update (although he might switch to it later), he just uses the stock Orange Box Half-Life 2 with some modifications (e.g. the old vortigaunts). The mod does look spectacular, the gun animations especially, but it would be a little jarring to switch to it outright.
  20. This is a quality comment regarding The Movie and UE4, posting it here before it's lost to the depths of Youtube:
  21. Regarding what I asked in the videochat: Opus is an audio codec mostly meant for telephony and streaming, but it is also great at storing music (it supersedes Vorbis in that regard). From my A/B testing, it's indistinguishable at 128k bitrate. It unfortunately isn't used much (Youtube and some VOIP clients use it) because MP3 and Vorbis are "good enough" for most people. Dragon's Egg is a hard science fiction book about a neutron star that is inhabited by cheela, sapient creatures the size of a sesame seed. They operate on a time scale one million times that of humans, and the novel is about their evolution and communications with humans.
  22. There is a company, KeyMouse, that's currently working on a similar design to The Claw, also with different sizes and grips. Here is their most recent progress update:
  23. Small change in the forum index: the links for recent posts have been changed, such that the thread title link will now just link to the thread, not the unread posts, and the link showing the date will now link to the first unread post instead. @RaTcHeT302: I certainly agree with a reputation system not being good for discussion. I think I'll leave the reactions neutral (not affecting reputation), although I would want something other than just a heart there.
  24. It doesn't. It's tied to the reaction system, which currently works only for administrators' posts. I've been too busy to implement anything yet, but I would actually like to hear other people's feedback on how it (and the reactions) should work.
