  1. I updated the title of this thread to “Website issues and improvements”, since the forums have been unified for quite some time now.


    We also upgraded the version of Invision Community to the latest one. However, this may have caused some unwanted issues. I would like you to report any problems that you do have in this very thread.

  2. Wasn't that a thing, like, 4 or more years ago? I recall him having plans for animations about some of his stories a while ago (he said that in the 2015 announcements video IIRC), you might want to see that come into fruition.

  3. Hey,

    I do have all the video downloads backed up, but yeah, we removed them during the migration for technical reasons. I could help set up a torrent, I don't think Ross would mind it at all (will ask him about it later).

  4. From the ToS:


    Terminations by YouTube for Service Changes

    YouTube may terminate your access, or your Google account’s access to all or part of the Service if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable. 

    The latest news I've heard is that it's a disclaimer stating that it can disable YouTube or specific parts of the service, e.g. YouTube Music. That does seem more likely, but YouTube still being a brick wall doesn't help any of this. Also, IIRC, this has already been a thing in the EEA for a couple of months.

    is this a horror game or is this some kind of weird simulation, are we in the wrong time line?

    ed is a text editor predating monitors (people used teleprinters back then), so it's very obtuse. I guess you could compare using it to wandering in the dark only being able to see what's right in front of you.


    Anyway, this is a great conversation, but it is getting massively off-topic.

     but once grandma starts to wish she could use windows only apps, that's when everything goes downhill i immagine

    That scenario was imagining someone who really is a total newbie with not much experience to warrant the use of Windows apps, so I wouldn't imagine that to be much of an issue anyway.


    I do agree with your sentiment on the decentralised nature of Linux being a detriment for mass adoption. It's not really an OS per se, there's a whole community with its schisms and what-not. Someone new to computers definitely isn't going to install a distribution all by themselves, it's usually a tech-savvy relative helping out.

    i don't know, you can overclock the 1600, and i don't think there's much point in the X series


    if you have money to throw away sure go for the 1600x,  but you might as well go for the 1700 and be done with it

    otherwise if you want your PC to be cooler, go with the 1600, and leave it stock, if you don't care about heat, then it's up to you


    i think they are okay cpus, they are on par with the intel i5 6500, so nothing overly amazing, but they make up with the raw core \ thread count, and with pretty good prices (an 8 core cpu for 120€ is a steal, if you can buy it from germany)


    bear in mind that the cooler is really hard to install, it has a very finnicky spring system

    Be careful, there are spambots on the loose! (Just checked and the one you replied to was one.)

    i really don't think traumatizing, or making fun of users, who can't get used to such systems is good, or kind, or nice at all, to me this goes against everything humanity has done, i just don't understand why grandma can't browse her facebook and have a good time, as much as the hex editing reverse engineering power user

    I actually think that both user groups you mentioned can be satisfied with Linux. A newbie (like your grandma) can have a great time on a user-friendly distro (e.g. Linux Mint, elementary OS) doing basic things like web surfing or using office applications; in fact, I'd go so far as to say that they'd have a better time using Linux. The actual people having problems with Linux are power users that already have everything figured out on Windows (like Ross). They're going to have a hard time because a lot of the more complicated use cases require more hoops to jump through on Linux or simply aren't documented well. I'm not saying this is a non-issue—it definitely is one—, but it's a different thing altogether.

    I literally cannot listen to this on it's original RPM. Go ahead and listen to the original, I bet you'll be crawling back to this one.

    I think it's completely fine at its original RPM, but the "audio strobe" part at the end might be too much for some.


    If you want more not-so-listenable but still good music, there's this:

    (I prefer Cap.IV off the same EP, but that doesn't have the nice video.

    Autechre is also great in general, I can easily recommend most of their music—even the eight hours they released last year.)


    And this as well:


    Some other music I like (also being overdue on my homework):

    Finally released after 21 YEARS


    Really great sound, especially in their live performances.

  11. Great episode, very succinct.

    I would really like to see a drawing of that in action.

    Yeah, but there's a LOT of missing context... Like where was this, what happened, and why.

    It was just a Twitter reply. Video for context:


    The video itself is great, Captain Disillusion is definitely one of the best creators on Youtube.

  13. @Rus.T: The button is on the right, like this:image.png


    @sheridanm962: Having a follow buttton for each genre isn't really possible, since technically, they're all in the same category (the filtering is done dynamically on page load). At least one person has requested an RSS feed, though, and it's not that hard to add one.

    PS: as a suggestion feature, could I combine all genre and sort them by Ross's award?

    You already can, Sort By→Ross's Rating. This is a pretty commonly asked question, does anyone have ideas for making this more obvious?

    Only a Sith deals in absolutes, Ross.


    To get back on topic, I'd like to make a suggestion for the Big List. If it's possible and wouldn't be overly time consuming (I'm assuming this can be done automatically but I have no idea), could a button be added that filters only games Ross has given ratings? I expect those games to be the minority on the list, but it'd be nice to find them easily.

    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.

    I'm pretty sure he meant a search feature made specifically for the Games List. The one you're talking about isn't integrated with the Games List, it's for the entire website.

    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.

    Although I understand that this isn't the point of the list, and I don't know how much effort it would take to implement this feature, and the list itself isn't very big (yet);

    But it would be cool to see a search function where you could type in the name of your game to see whether it made it into Ross's list. I see some people are already discussing how some of their favorite games aren't in the list. I bet it's probably more because they're interested in what the list exposes about Ross's tastes, rather than the games themselves.

    There is a search feature, in the top right corner of the website.
