    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:56 AM - Takita: They are
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:56 AM - Leo: i might've even been too specific
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:56 AM - Takita: The military works differently compared to the government itself
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:56 AM - Leo: the goverment+the parliament+the justice system
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Leo: simply the state
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Leo: is the people
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Denian: We had at least 3 major agreements between US and EU governments in the last decade that said governments were free to spy on people without reason. If governments always represented the people, that could not have happened. Governments represent their own interests first and foremost.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Misaka: the, the is not a registered user!
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Takita: ^
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Leo: denian show me those pls
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:57 AM - Takita: Law isn't created for the people but rather for those in power and privilege
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:58 AM - Leo: I'm highly skeptical of your claim
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:58 AM - Takita: Which can be seen in the US
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:58 AM - Denian: Remember SOPA or what it was called? Don't remember the abbreviations of the other two big ones.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:58 AM - Leo: takita, in part, yes. Democracy has its flaws
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:59 AM - Denian: "Stop Online Privacy Act" or something. Basically amounted to "businesses are free to spy on people to find out who might be breaking copyright".
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:59 AM - Takita: Yes and it's main flaw is that it doesn't follow the will of the people
    Apr 13, 2018 at 10:59 AM - Leo: SOPA has nothing to do with the EU
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:00 AM - Leo: Takita there i kinda agree kinda disagree. SOmetimes it follows the will fo the people, sometime it does what is better for the people
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:00 AM - Leo: no one likes extra taxes to pay a national debt
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:00 AM - Leo: but it must be done
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:01 AM - rasmus15951: 1984
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:01 AM - Leo: the people would vote against it. Yet if taxes werent raised the country would bankrupt
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:01 AM - Mathew: 1969
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:01 AM - Mathew: first man on the moon
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:01 AM - Denian: No, that one was purely US but would have affected people internationally. And it wouldn't have been as successful as it was if the people - even only the American people - had had a direct say in it.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:02 AM - Leo: and denian, blocking access to websites isnt really spying
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:02 AM - Leo: i get it, but i understand, from what i read until now, the act's validity
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:02 AM - Takita: Take aoa for a example. The staff can read private messages sent and if forum members got to vote about it, the feature would not exist but it is hidden behind the concept of " its for your protection"
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:03 AM - Takita: Which is quite similar to what governments does
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:03 AM - Denian: Actually, Taki, that is one rule Mystik himself enforces. If one of us reads your PMs without you asking us to, that person gets kicked from the team immediately.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:04 AM - Leo: i didnt even know we could read PM's lmao
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:04 AM - Denian: I keep the feature purely because in my experience, the moment I remove it, there will be a flood of complaints about people abusing each other in PMs.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:04 AM - Leo: btw from the small briefing i read about the SOPA, it has nothing to do with spying
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:05 AM - Leo: its purpose is to block sites with copyrighted content
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:05 AM - Takita: Which is a good rule but most people would like the concept of having their conversations being "read" if that makes sense
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:06 AM - Takita: Wouldn't *
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:06 AM - Denian: Leo, there's a public and a hidden side of each of those acts. The small print included all kinds of stuff aimed at being able to spy on users in order to find out who broke copyright law.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:06 AM - Leo: agree
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:06 AM - Leo: (to what taki said)

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:07 AM - Leo: "he small print included all kinds of stuff aimed at being able to spy on users in order to find out who broke copyright law." well i havent found anything mentioning that
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:07 AM - Leo: if you can find anything about it, please send it here
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:07 AM - Leo: I doubt that would've been written and i cant find it anywhere
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:08 AM - Denian: It was discussed for months here in Germany, Leo. Like I said, I don't follow politics, but even our politicians agreed that it was a major privacy infringement back then.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:08 AM - Denian: Well, at least some of them. Merkel, as usual, was the US lapdog.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:08 AM - Leo: how were german politicians discussing US politics for months
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:09 AM - Leo: anyway
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:09 AM - Denian: Seriously? Internet, Leo. It would have affected people internationally.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:09 AM - Leo: How
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:09 AM - Leo: it is based on ISPs blocking content
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Mathew: Did you seriously miss this?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Mathew: It was huge
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Leo: the SOPA wouldnt be able to block content on other countries
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Denian: The public reasons, Leo. Do try to look beneath the surface once in a while?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Leo: I look very deep denian~
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Takita: Clearly not deep enough
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 AM - Denian: US government was basically giving US companies Carte Blanche to spy on anybody accessing US sites.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Leo: its what i did when you suggested international courts of the law
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Mathew: Look deeper
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Mathew: Deeper
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Mathew: Even deeper
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Denian: In case you don't remember, AoA was hosted by godaddy for a long time - we would have been affected.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Mathew: Now we just push him in
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Leo: Agan denian, fi you can find me info on that, i'd love to talk about it
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM - Mathew: godaddy LUL
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:12 AM - Takita: Choke me daddy
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:13 AM - Mathew: Leo or Den?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:13 AM - Leo: LMAO
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:13 AM - Leo: duck it is obviously you
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:14 AM - Mathew: :Doge:
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:14 AM - Denian: Governments are people, people are greedy. Companies have more money than people, so greedy people support companies rather than people, so governments support the business interests of companies rather than the privacy interests of people. Representatives, as a rule, do not represent those who they should represent.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:14 AM - Takita: You make me want to vomit duck
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:14 AM - Takita: There's only one answer to that question
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:14 AM - Takita: I'd rather be choked by Hitler
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Leo: I ahve a different view. I don't reject yours, bit i think it is a bit extreme.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Mathew: It wasn't an option :angery:
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Leo: eh that was expected
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Leo: anyway denian
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Takita: It is now (':
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Leo: COmpanies create jobs

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Leo: jobs give money to the people
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:16 AM - Leo: people can then pay taxes which finances the state and allows the state to run, protecting the people and giving them support
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:16 AM - Takita: lol
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:16 AM - Takita: That's not the case in the US in case you weren't aware
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:16 AM - Leo: I'd say representatives usually represent those who elected them
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:16 AM - Leo: US is shit we're basing things on the eU
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:17 AM - Denian: And as long as you can't 100% guarantee that a government will represent the majority on important decisions, those decisions should not be made by any kind of representatives.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:18 AM - Leo: you can represent in different ways. DOnt forget the options for la arent binary
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:18 AM - Leo: and yeah agree
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:18 AM - Leo: but going deeper yet again
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:18 AM - Leo: what would be qualified as important
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Denian: Leo, I'd be content if "important" were simply anything that affects human rights to start with. Seriously, start somewhere and you'll get public opinion on how far it should go soon enough.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Tokikaze: Good noon, lads
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Denian: Hi Kaze.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Leo: (see all this? This is making decisions within a state. Now imagine this multiplied by 200 with real life effects. That is the international problem)
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Leo: Whats up kaze!
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Leo: @Denian agree. yet, human rights were never the competence of states
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:21 AM - Leo: well, in the us... they are a retarded case as always
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:22 AM - Tokikaze: Fine, Leo. Still recovering from a chaos at work, but fine
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:22 AM - Leo: (meaning most states don't formulate a bill of human rights, they just do a ratification of the UN's definition~
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:22 AM - Tokikaze: How about you?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:23 AM - Takita: Where do you even work
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:24 AM - Leo: damn, recover well kaze! I'm doing pretty good
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:24 AM - Denian: Wasn't the right to communicate without anybody reading along part of the UN definition? Might be confusing this with something Germany's constituion added, though...
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:24 AM - Leo: started the day witht his amazing discussion, loving it till now
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:25 AM - Leo: part of the universal declaration of human rights? i dont think so
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:25 AM - Denian: I'll admit that my attention span is far too short to read even the summary of the human rights declaration, so I really don't know. The stuff is too dry to keep my attention.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:26 AM - Leo: it is pretty short
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:26 AM - Mathew: Yuuuuuuukiiiiiiiiii
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:26 AM - Tokikaze: Cleaning dishes at a restaurant, Taki
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:26 AM - Denian: One page at the humidity level of law texts is a lot to me, Leo.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:27 AM - Mathew: Everyone should just follow Lelouch, our savior
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:27 AM - Tokikaze: Yesterday was opening day, and the customers ran towards the dishes like crazy
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:27 AM - Leo: then u have a bunch of other human rights, like the economic and social ones, the children rights, the minorities rights, etc
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM - Tokikaze: Dishwasher wasn't cleaning with hot water, so we had to clean & dry dishes manually. Lot of them
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM - Mathew: Don't you dare ignore me Yuki :mad:
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM - Mathew: I'll find you!!
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM - Tokikaze: I'm not Yuki no more. Remember?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM - Leo: this is the brand new eveolved kaze
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM - Mathew: You are, Yuki.

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:29 AM - Takita: I work at a zoo so I can't relate
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:29 AM - Denian: Seriously, no idea. How about defining "important" as any international decisions that would affect the rights of people, as opposed to organizations?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:29 AM - Leo: gaming network here. can't relate either lmao
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:29 AM - Tokikaze: You-...wait. Really, taki?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:30 AM - Mathew: They have a mole with poop on the head
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:30 AM - Leo: hm. any exemples you can think of?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:30 AM - Tokikaze: 12:28 PM - Leo: this is the brand new eveolved kaze || "(Toki)Kaze(Yuki)"
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:30 AM - Mathew: You will always be Yuki to me, Yuuuuuuuuukiiiiiiiii
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:31 AM - Takita: Yeah really
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:31 AM - Takita: http://www.skanesdjurpark.se
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:31 AM - Mathew: Fåret Shaun
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Tokikaze: Uh...
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Takita: Fuck yeah
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Mathew: När jag kommer hem så ska jag ha oboy
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Takita: Ska göra oboj nu bara för det
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Denian: Well, the common example from recent years would be everything that interferes with internet privacy.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Mathew: :mad:
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Tokikaze: Btw, guys, what were you talking about?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Mathew: Trump is a politician
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Mathew: Leo says he isn't
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Denian: Or, really, making a global data protection act instead of a local one.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:34 AM - Tokikaze: I have quite a contrast with millionaire politicians
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:34 AM - Tokikaze: Learnt it because of a politician here in Italy
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:35 AM - Tokikaze: I don't see a millionaire being a politician very well
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:35 AM - Tokikaze: Just because their mindset is configured to economics
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:35 AM - Mathew: Same
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:35 AM - Leo: Most politicians i know have an economic driven mindset
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:36 AM - Leo: Hm denian agree
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:36 AM - Leo: with the example
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:36 AM - Leo: Her ein portugal at least, we had a referendum about abortion
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:36 AM - Tokikaze: A thing that bothers me is that they give Trump credit for the denuclearization of NK
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:36 AM - Leo: another nice example i guess? not international but still
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:37 AM - Tokikaze: God darn it. What else helped out with that? Idk, freaking Olympics as well?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:37 AM - Leo: IF any denuclearization happens, the credits go to china lmao
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:37 AM - Mathew: Trump is only making things worse
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Leo: trump is a blackhole of comedy lmao
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Tokikaze: He has good concept, but the way he demonstrates them is beyond idiocy
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Mathew: YOU CAN'T SAY THAT WORD
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Mathew: ITS AFRICAN-AMERICAN
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Denian: I'm just too cynical to agree with any form of representative government, I guess - even if you were to put beggars as politicians. I agree that a lot of stuff, especially decisions that are needed to keep everything running on a day to day basis (including required taxes etc.), should be done by a semi-central government, because nobody else would care to keep it balanced.

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Denian: Major decisions, though... Really, I think we're at the point where direct democracy is possible.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:39 AM - Tokikaze: "African-American"hole, Mathew?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:39 AM - Mathew: Yes
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:39 AM - Leo: here in portugal at least, as we are a small country, public opinion matters a bunch
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:39 AM - Mathew: Or you're a racist cis white male pig
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:39 AM - Tokikaze: I might be bi at this point of my life ( - -)
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:39 AM - Leo: U forgot straight
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:40 AM - Tokikaze: Wait. DELETE THAT!
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:40 AM - Denian: Uh, so we have "African-American Abyss" on our team, guys?

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:41 AM - Tokikaze: Wasn't that Maxine and Anicca?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Mathew: Monika

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Denian: Those names... They awaken dark memories, long repressed in an act of psychological self protection...

    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - Mathew: Stop it
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - PhantomFury: Crap you are right
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - Mathew: The D will be in you
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - Tokikaze: XD
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - Mathew: Not me
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - Tokikaze: https://randowis.com/2016/11/12/me/
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:49 AM - Nizza: VE is done ._.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:50 AM - PhantomFury: thanks will check it out soon
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:50 AM - Mathew: I'm not opening that
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:50 AM - PhantomFury: doneas in done done or there's another season coming?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:51 AM - Leo: tight
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:51 AM - PhantomFury: I will open it, cause...uh
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:51 AM - Tokikaze: https://randowis.com/2018/03/31/lift/
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:52 AM - Nizza: no word for the second season, but it seems they change the ending from LN version.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:52 AM - PhantomFury: but does it end in a cliffhanger?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:53 AM - Nizza: You'll get the feeling of code geass ending ;)
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:53 AM - PhantomFury: Welp back to reading MKO cause I barely started my chain reading the other day when Ol sleep disrupted my thoughts
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:54 AM - PhantomFury: hmmm, I actually like the way CG ended
    Apr 13, 2018 at 11:54 AM - Tokikaze: K. Later
    Apr 13, 2018 at 12:50 PM - Denian: The end of that second one was... unexpected, Kaze.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 12:56 PM - Denian: Also not really really not my kind of humor, either of them...
    Apr 13, 2018 at 12:58 PM - Denian: Then again, that's probably part of a personality flaw of mine, I guess? Because I can't understand why so many people find it amusing to watch people being stupid?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:06 PM - Denian: Rofl... Belatedly saw that the last discord patch notes are from April 1st...
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:06 PM - Tokikaze: Hilarity can be found in everything
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:07 PM - Tokikaze: Unless you're REALLY depressed
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:07 PM - Denian: But... Watching people display as much stupidity as possible?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:08 PM - Tokikaze: That's the point
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:08 PM - Denian: I mean, wouldn't the sane response to watching a sitcom be to call the sanatorium and tell them that several of their patients escaped, rather than laughing about it?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:09 PM - Tokikaze: Somehow, I never found sitcoms funny enough

    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:10 PM - Denian: Yeah, was just one example.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:10 PM - Tokikaze: Btw, I'm totally dumbfounded about any possible ideas for new stories
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:11 PM - Tokikaze: I'm experimenting with a lot of anime genres
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:11 PM - Tokikaze: Isekai, Fantasy....
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:12 PM - Tokikaze: And now I'm stuck with those RWBY fanfics ( - -)
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:13 PM - Tokikaze: Fyi, I have reached the ridiculous number of 20k reads
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:13 PM - Tokikaze: Help me
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:14 PM - Denian: Just delete your account there. Problem fixed.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Tokikaze: And risking to go on a ranting because of AoA as a backslash? Nuh-uh
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Denian: Or simply stop reading the fake statistics, because they can't tell a read from a "somebody clicked by accident and immediately closed the tab", anyway.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Tokikaze: Yah
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:16 PM - Tokikaze: But it's ridiculously interesting how they randomly picked it just because they could feel immersed
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:17 PM - Tokikaze: Den, when I left AoA for a month, my nervousness was at the tip of the iceberg
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:18 PM - Tokikaze: One more, and I would have just asked for a perma ban
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:18 PM - Tokikaze: I know that my writing sucks and such, but tbh it's the only thing that gives me less frustration about how shitty the community is
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:19 PM - Tokikaze: I don't actually care whether they read it fully or not. It just puts me at ease
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:20 PM - Denian: Then enjoy it and stop mentioning how many you got?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:21 PM - Tokikaze: Heh. I just say it as a reminder of how funny is
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:22 PM - Tokikaze: Increases my ego slightly, but puts me a smile
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:23 PM - Denian: Seriously, "reads" are the most unnecessary statistic out there. Focus on reviews and follows or whatever that site has - reads just tell you if nobody's reviewing because they haven't seen the story or because they have nothing to rant about. It's useless for anything else.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:24 PM - Tokikaze: They leave comments too. And that's the most satisfying thing
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:26 PM - Denian: Then focus on the amount of comments instead of the reads, for fuck's sake. It could just be the same person opening your story 20k times, otherwise. Seriously, that counter is useless.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:28 PM - Denian: Now if they had something like "average number of chapters each registered user who viewed your story has read", that would be useful. Counting how many people clicked a link doesn't tell you anything.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:30 PM - Tokikaze: Yeah
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:30 PM - Tokikaze: Speaking of statistics. How many users have supposedly joined our AoA cause in the last month?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:30 PM - Denian: I'm seriously pissed at wattpad for even making that counter public. It ruins aspiring authors by telling them their story is popular, when in truth, most people might just have clicked it because that same counter told them the story is already popular.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:32 PM - Denian: 31 registrations since March 13th.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:33 PM - Denian: 229 users online at least once since then.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:33 PM - Tokikaze: There are actually tons of international writing contest that would potentially give writers more opportunities
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:33 PM - Tokikaze: I was planning to subscribe my earlier draft of Codex & Grimoire, but I changed my mind soon after
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:33 PM - Assassin: 31 LUL
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:34 PM - Denian: Maybe, I just hate it when people distort the truth based on insignificant data.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:34 PM - Tokikaze: Because I was in the middle of my HS final exams XD
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:34 PM - Tokikaze: I need international writing contest that gives opportunities to shine ;-;
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:36 PM - Tokikaze: Nah. Jk. My engineering course is top priority atm
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:37 PM - Tokikaze: Speaking of...did any of those Nerf Gear trolls continue with the lost crusade?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:39 PM - Denian: None where I noticed.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:40 PM - Tokikaze: Because I remember another issue about using EM waves: interference
    Apr 13, 2018 at 1:49 PM - Tokikaze: Well. "Might be" another issue
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:04 PM - Denian: Oh, that doesn't matter, really. I mean, if you fry your brain anyway, the actual elecrical signals you produce don't really matter.

    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:05 PM - Denian: Joke aside: Yes, it would be a problem.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:06 PM - Denian: The problem is, the technology is so nonsensical, this aspect doesn't really rate as one because realism stops way before you get to that point.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:10 PM - Tokikaze: The only alternative is the microchip on the back of your head, then
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:10 PM - Tokikaze: Like Accel World
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:10 PM - Denian: Nanobots. I vote for nanobots.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:10 PM - Tokikaze: Honestly, Accel World is more realistic than SAO
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:10 PM - Tokikaze: Nanobots...?Hmmm
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:11 PM - Denian: They connect to your brain, add their own neural network throughout your body and build a wifi interface for data transfer.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:12 PM - Tokikaze: Yes. I got that, but I was actually thinking about the other potentials for it
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:12 PM - Denian: And when you die, the nanites have already copied your brain into their neural network, so when they leave your body, they form a USB stick with a copy of your mind - all memories included.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:12 PM - Tokikaze: I mean, it could induce the body to constantly regenerate
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:12 PM - Denian: Bah, who needs a body...
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:13 PM - Denian: :D
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:13 PM - Tokikaze: Those who have a great moral about humanity, I'm afraid
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:13 PM - Denian: But yeah, might be possible.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:14 PM - Tokikaze: Which, tbh, is a lost cause and interesting at the same time
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:14 PM - Tokikaze: Humanity is deceitful, mischievous and mostly a douchebag
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:15 PM - Tokikaze: The amount of "good people" can be counted on the fingers of our hands
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:15 PM - Denian: Actually the nanintes will probably keep repairing your body for a completely different reason: The porn industry would want people to keep their bodies, because porn isn't nearly as fun without one, so they'd lose a lot otherwise.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:15 PM - Tokikaze: Lmao
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:16 PM - Denian: What? I'm just being realistic.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:18 PM - Hano: ayy sup
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:18 PM - Hano: Deep convo going on
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:18 PM - Denian: Btw., I think I know the culprit behind the rise of general stupidity levels in recent decades: Chocolate.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:20 PM - Denian: And it's not due to any bad chemicals, either. Quite the opposite.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:20 PM - Hano: How the hell did you come to that conclusion
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:20 PM - Denian: Uh... You know roughly how a brain, and especially learning, works?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:20 PM - Hano: 9:12 PM - Denian: Bah, who needs a body... - Denian 13/4/2018
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:21 PM - Hano: I don't actually
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:23 PM - Denian: Oh. Ok, so... the brain itself is basically storage that remembers "if this happens, do that". The other half of the equation is various chemicals telling your brain "this was good, change things slightly to react like this more often" or "this was bad, change things to make this reaction less likely".
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:23 PM - Denian: So... By nature, those "this was good" chemicals were intended to only be released when you did something that was good for your health (or procreation and similar things).
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:24 PM - Denian: Among those "this was good" chemicals are endorphines. Insert chocolate.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:24 PM - Hano: Hey you might be on to something
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:25 PM - Denian: Uh.. Yeah, that was the really dumbed down version of Neurology. My usual course takes up to two hours and is intended for AI beginners, but I don't have the patience for that one today...
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:25 PM - Hano: So in other words, people stope exercising to produce endorphines when they can get them by eating chocolate?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:27 PM - Hano: Well shit, I need some chocolatae
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:31 PM - Denian: Not just that. Parents don't give their children chocolate only as a reward, but also, for example, to comfort them when they got hurt. They basically counteract the learning mechanism nature intended.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:33 PM - Denian: And it's not just that chocolate helps release endorphines directly. Sugar is the main source of energy for most cells in our bodies, and despite too much of it being bad for us, our cells reward our brain for providing it, by basically saying "hey, thanks, could you do this more often?"
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:35 PM - Denian: The reason doing sports feels good as long as you do it regularly? It releases enzymes that transform fat into blood sugar, and our cells like that.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:35 PM - Tokikaze: In my case, Den. Chocolate helped me out a lot during my childhood XS

    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:35 PM - Denian: Basically, to our body, sugar feels like sports are supposed to feel.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:35 PM - Tokikaze: But my allergy refrained my parents from doing so
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:38 PM - Denian: Chocolate can actually be a good influence - if you only eat it as a reward for a job well done.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:39 PM - Denian: It's eating chocolate as "comfort food" or while being lazy that is bad.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:39 PM - Tokikaze: I almost became diabetic due to chocolate, Den
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:39 PM - Tokikaze: Ate a full jar of Nutella in my childhood XD
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:40 PM - Denian: Uh... yeah, ok, that's stupid.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:40 PM - Tokikaze: Nooo. Really?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:41 PM - Hano: Den please don't hide chocolate from your kid, I fear for his life
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:43 PM - Denian: Rofl... I see my kid once a week at best, my ex is the one raising him. The worst I might do is write a book.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:43 PM - Hano: Wait really? You never told us that before
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:44 PM - Hano: I feel like we're best friends now
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:44 PM - Tokikaze: He did, Hano :shifty:
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:44 PM - Tokikaze: Plenty of times
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:44 PM - Hano: I knew he had a kid
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:44 PM - Hano: cmon
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:46 PM - Hano: btw, elite dangerous is dope af
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:46 PM - Hano: I'm almost reaching 200hrs
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:48 PM - Denian: Considering a friend of mine has more than a thousand hours on ETS, I guess that's alright... (for verification)
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:50 PM - Hano: Yea man, who doesn't love trucking
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:50 PM - Hano: Especially space trucking
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:50 PM - Denian: I don't. Lack of attention span, remember?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:50 PM - Hano: Man, how do you even go on vacation
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:50 PM - Tokikaze: I was planning to reinstall it, but I only have the base game
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:51 PM - Hano: Base game is great already by itself
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:51 PM - Hano: TBH, the first 60hrs I had was base game
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:51 PM - Denian: By really wanting to get there, Hano.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:52 PM - Hano: The journey is better than the destination as the going says
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:52 PM - Hano: Unless you're space trucking with nothing to see, then watching a show might help
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:53 PM - Hano: Kaze, you've gotta try out all the careers ED has to offer, bounty hunting, piracy, trucking, trading, mining, etc.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:54 PM - Hano: If you're kinda sadistic like me, you can try suiciding your ship full of CEO's!
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:54 PM - Denian: Yeah, no. I don't have the eye to enjoy man-made beauty, and landscapes barely do anything for me. Relaxing at the beach is the true joy of vacations for me.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:55 PM - Denian: Well, relaxing and enjoying the one kind of beauty I do appreciate, if you get my drift.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:56 PM - Hano: Coding?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:56 PM - Denian: Girls.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:56 PM - Denian: Coding isn't beauty, it's a mental thing.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:56 PM - Hano: That's more like it Den! Get em girls
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:57 PM - Denian: Nah, I'm past "getting" them. I do enjoy seeing them, though.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:57 PM - Hano: Who doesn't
    Apr 13, 2018 at 2:58 PM - Hano: Those beautiful eyes

    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:02 PM - Denian: Yeah. That, relaxing on the beach, occasionally swimming a bit... Only thing missing is having my own girl cuddled up to me, but "my" girl is unavailable to me, so I'll just have to go without one.
    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:03 PM - Hano: You can always bring a waifu pillow :Doge:
    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:03 PM - Denian: That's creepy... Who brings one of those to the beach?
    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:04 PM - Hano: Japanese probably
    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:04 PM - Hano: Well anyways, glad you got some place to relax at
    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:06 PM - Denian: Oh, I'm perfectly fine chilling out in a forest, park or swimming pool, too, but beaches just have this vacation feeling, you know?

    Apr 13, 2018 at 3:21 PM - Takita: just hearing that name makes me want to vomit

    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:25 PM - Takita: Which is a bit disappointing
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:28 PM - Crusty: Megalo Box looks interesting, 3D Kanojo: Real Girl manga was good
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:28 PM - Crusty: but yeah that's ah all i've bothered to watch
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:32 PM - PhantomFury: Reboot to Legend of the Galactic Heroes and as I am a massive fan of the original, I'm watching it. So far, it's alright...but the fact that they only plan 12 episodes what the original too over a hundred to finish...
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:33 PM - PhantomFury: *Heroes came out and as...
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:34 PM - Polkulotz: tokyo ghoul s3

    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:40 PM - Polkulotz: also waching that buko no hero
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:40 PM - PhantomFury: I haven't seen it, actually but I know it is decent. Just don't want to watch it if season 2 ends in cliffhanger
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:41 PM - PhantomFury: Er, I am saving buko no hero until it concludes,..unless it will become DBZ of modern generation

    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:41 PM - Takita: gets better as it goes
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:41 PM - Polkulotz: yeah
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:42 PM - PhantomFury: Is the source material (manga, LN, etc.) done?
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:43 PM - Takita: nope
    Apr 15, 2018 at 12:43 PM - PhantomFury: Oh. Looks like I will have to wait a while.
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:15 PM - Hano: Couldn't they just name SAO Alternative Gun Gale Online as simply, Gun Gale Online?
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:16 PM - Hano: Really hate the whole "SAO: "
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:30 PM - Leo: Heyo
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:31 PM - Leo: Boku no Hero is pretty good indeed
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:31 PM - Leo: so is nanatsu no taizai. SAO:GGO is watchable
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:36 PM - Takita: the concept is good but the main character is annoying as fuck and i cant stand it
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:42 PM - Leo: i get it. the character doesnt bother me much, its more that in these first 2 episodes, it didnt show anything specially interesting
    Apr 15, 2018 at 3:42 PM - Leo: so i didnt get hooked on it
    Apr 15, 2018 at 4:25 PM - Matvyn: ello lads

    Apr 16, 2018 at 7:01 AM - Takita: What a shame
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:26 AM - CrimsonWingzz: Yes
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:30 AM - Denian: Good morning and happy Monday, everybody!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:33 AM - Mathew: Happy monday :watching:
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:41 AM - Denian: Weather says it's almost time for shorts again :)
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:44 AM - Denian: Starting tomorrow, temperature will rise above 20°C every day this week.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:46 AM - Mathew: Its just cloudy af here... would be warm without the clouds tho
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:54 AM - PhantomFury: Happy Monday, all!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:55 AM - PhantomFury: It have been 13 degrees past two days, dare I say it's springtime
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:57 AM - Assassin: Happy Monday c:
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:58 AM - Denian: Late spring, more like. 20°C is something we usually start reaching in late May. Which probably means I'll die this summer.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:58 AM - Denian: Hi Sin
    Apr 16, 2018 at 8:59 AM - Assassin: Hai Den :Doge:
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:22 AM - Tokikaze: Good morning and Happy Mond-...uhhhhh...I'm beat...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:32 AM - Assassin: Urm Den
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:34 AM - Denian: That's me, I think?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:35 AM - Assassin: What is the point in the first forum comp forum display colour? It's a nooby one :(
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:39 AM - Denian: Not really much of a point, but there's no "pointless" flag we can use to filter those out. The idea was to use those groups to see who had won (or participated in) how many competitions, and the third one would be the real price... or something like that. It was a while ago.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:39 AM - Assassin: Ahh I see c:
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:47 AM - Denian: ... I usually don't say bad things about my teammates without prompting, but... Yeah... That idea was probably stupid, considering how "frequently" we have competitions or other events...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:48 AM - Denian: On to better topics: How are your studies progressing, Sin?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:53 AM - PhantomFury: I mean, typicaly spring herei s anything above 3 degrees but this spring is wacky with its super warm days next to freezing temperatures
    Apr 16, 2018 at 9:57 AM - Denian: Actually, we had typical April weather in February/March. Right now, like I said, it feels like late May or early June.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:02 AM - Denian: Winter barely existed, so I fear summer will be long and hard.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:05 AM - Crusty: 20 degrees is cold
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:08 AM - Denian: Nah. For me, 20°C is warm, but still in the good range (16-22°C).
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:09 AM - Denian: Beyond 25°C, I'm useless.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:14 AM - Denian: Which, considering that I have a student apartment right under the roof with a window to the south/south-west... Well, not good.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:14 AM - Denian: And the only public pool nearby is an indoor pool...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:17 AM - Crusty: over 25 is when it gets good
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:17 AM - Crusty: 30-40 tho is a killer
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:17 AM - Denian: ... Maybe I can plant something in front of my window? Like, bamboo or something to swallow most of the sunlight?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:17 AM - Denian: Nah, anything beyond 25°C is deadly.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:18 AM - Denian: Or rather, it's deadly as long as I can't spend those days at the beach.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:18 AM - Crusty: weird countries
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:20 AM - Takita: anything above 25 is cancer
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:21 AM - Denian: Rofl... we (sometimes) get actual winters here on the northern third of this space rock, you know, Crusty? If we had higher temperatures all year, 20°C might feel cold to us, too, but as it is, that's where we start sweating.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:22 AM - Kenta17: when will there be another update? Hasn't been one since like December :(
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:23 AM - Denian: Most of the bugs we had to struggle with in the last months seem to be fixed, Kenta. I'll ask the guys to write an update post.

    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:25 AM - Takita: we had snow until like 3 weeks ago
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:25 AM - Takita: it was fucking cancer
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:26 AM - Assassin: Studies are good c: got my programming to do this week and then just studying for exams
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:27 AM - Denian: Sounds good, Sin. And then you're switching to university next term? I assume you're still doing the college thing you mentioned right now?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:29 AM - Denian: Taki, we had maybe two or three weeks of snow total this winter here in Germany, mostly in February.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:31 AM - Takita: we had snow since like
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:31 AM - Takita: Jan to April
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:32 AM - Denian: I'm thinking of doing this just for fun.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 10:34 AM - Denian: I mean, it's old, I know, but it sounds like a nice little challenge with low to moderate difficulty...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:00 AM - Tokikaze: Snow as in cocaine?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:01 AM - Takita: totally
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM - Denian: How the fuck is that what you associate with snow? Oh, wait... Italian...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:10 AM - PhantomFury: 20 degrees is just right for us as well :p
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:11 AM - PhantomFury: Though we only have a month of that in sping and autumn. The rest is either cold or blazing hot
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:12 AM - Tokikaze: Den. "Snow" is a term that sometimes gets associated with cocaine
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:12 AM - PhantomFury: *cue Godfather theme*
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:14 AM - PhantomFury: Finally about to reach the chapter, Den. But first this long ouside-world chapter.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:15 AM - Denian: 36? Took you a while :D
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:17 AM - Tokikaze: Guts, what's with those news about Syria lately? They're increasing in my feed, and I rarely check that
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:17 AM - Tokikaze: Guys*
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:18 AM - PhantomFury: Cause...US went and pew-pew-boom the country.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:18 AM - PhantomFury: (36? Hm?)
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:19 AM - Denian: No idea. No news coming in through my bubble.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:19 AM - PhantomFury: (Oh wait, I got it)
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:19 AM - Denian: Chapter 36 - the one you never reached.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Tokikaze: My feed is usually filled with videogames news
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:20 AM - PhantomFury: Yeah, I have been wanting to chain read but either ai got drowzy or got distracted....
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Tokikaze: Also, are you talking about MKO?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:20 AM - PhantomFury: *I
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:20 AM - PhantomFury: Aye
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:24 AM - Denian: I mean, the whole story is good, but in my opinion, Chapter 36 is where things start getting really interesting.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:24 AM - PhantomFury: These outside world thing feel kinda like a recap honestly. It could be good...or a bad thing. I'll go with the former
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:24 AM - PhantomFury: Oh cool :p
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:25 AM - Denian: I mean, up to that point, it's basically buildup. Yes, it's detailed, but it's basically all standard SAO up to that point: Quests, getting to know people, dealing with PKers...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:27 AM - Takita: my feed is weebshit, dogs and food
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:27 AM - Denian: Starting with 36, stuff starts happening that goes beyond the "base mechanics".
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:27 AM - PhantomFury: Oh so past that point it become something of its own story?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:30 AM - Denian: Not quite. More like... Well, SAO is controlled by an AI, and has several components that, while not true AI on their own, are close to it. Is it really reasonable to expect the game to stay as it was in the beginning? :D
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:31 AM - Takita: QUestion
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:31 AM - Takita: Should I stick to one race or multiple such as elf, dwarf etc

    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Takita: or would it be confusing
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Denian: And at the same time, you have a game server that hasn't had a maintenance reset for over a year, and which has been attacked multiple times. Which, by itself, will lead to... differences.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:32 AM - Denian: The more races you have, Taki, the more a reader might question their interactions with each other.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:33 AM - Takita: hm
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:34 AM - Takita: I just dont want to confuse people but at the same time if i do it right it shouldnt
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:34 AM - Tohuki: what are you guys talking about, while reading the chat I became interested. :D
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:35 AM - Takita: currently or before?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:35 AM - Tohuki: currently. the races and chapter things.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:35 AM - PhantomFury: Oh so divergence in story element while having some similarities to base material
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:36 AM - Denian: Fury and I are talking about Mystic Knight Online, a HP/SAO crossover fanfiction I really recommend, Tohuki.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:36 AM - PhantomFury: You continuing that story you wrote earlier, Taki?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:37 AM - Tohuki: thank you Denian.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:38 AM - Denian: No problem
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:40 AM - Denian: And yeah, Fury, exactly.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:41 AM - PhantomFury: I see.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:41 AM - Takita: Ah
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:41 AM - PhantomFury: Oh yeah, btw, Den how's NNB or did you drop it?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:41 AM - Takita: I'm about to write a story but this time im going to take my time with it before posting it
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:41 AM - Takita: and I was unsure if i should have just humans or more
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Takita: I was also thinking about putting up a post on here where people could make their own characters for it
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Takita: which would save me the trouble
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Denian: I kinda dropped it when I was ill because I didn't even have the energy to watch anything, Fury. Will start watching again.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Mathew: Duckpeople
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:42 AM - Denian: Lunch break now. Bye!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:44 AM - PhantomFury: See ya!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:44 AM - PhantomFury: Oh that's cool, Taki, sounds fun :p
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:45 AM - PhantomFury: I dibs centaur, they are cool to me for some reason
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:46 AM - PhantomFury: So kinda like what you did back the, just more in depth?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:58 AM - Takita: I just wanted like
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:58 AM - Takita: to do it properly
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:58 AM - Mathew: Duckpeople
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:58 AM - Takita: or rather, get a concept I enjoy writing instead of feeling like its a hassle because i change my mind about something in the concept and it doesnt fit
    Apr 16, 2018 at 11:58 AM - Takita: okay ill add duck people and you'll be one
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:03 PM - Tokikaze: A fantasy story? Hmm...adding multiple races can be good for enriching the lore. I don't think it would be a hindrance
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:03 PM - Assassin: I'd just add my FFXIV Character as my character x)
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:04 PM - Tokikaze: Nekomimi characters?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:04 PM - Takita: Yeah I'm thinking of just making a introduction chapter at first, explaining the world and the races
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:04 PM - Takita: and then just go from there
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:05 PM - PhantomFury: That sounds like good start, prologue, in another words
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:06 PM - Takita: yeah pretty much

    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:07 PM - PhantomFury: While I like player-creation species, I think there should be a a line drawn at some point or else it would be clunky if every character is like a different species
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:08 PM - Takita: yeah I know thats why im thinking about just making it like 3-4 races
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:08 PM - Takita: maybe just 3
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:08 PM - Takita: to keep it simple
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:08 PM - Takita: compared to just having a cluster fuck
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:08 PM - PhantomFury: Human, duck people, [one more]
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:09 PM - PhantomFury: We shall now have to fight for that postion!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:09 PM - PhantomFury: I suggest against elves and goblin, it's cliché
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:09 PM - Assassin: Why duck people when we only have 1 Duck :mad:
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:09 PM - Takita: im thinking that im putting duck people into a race with sub-races which is animals based and it shouldnt make it that much of a cluster since its a easy race to recoginise
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:10 PM - Takita: I might just make something of my own as a 3rd race but I dont really know
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:10 PM - PhantomFury: Deer-people
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:10 PM - Mathew: Ty Taki :)))
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Takita: Could have Humans, Animal race (that i'll figure out a name for) and maybe half demons??
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Tokikaze: Kemonomimi people?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Takita: that will end up as a sub class for the animal races
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Tokikaze: Or Beast men?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - PhantomFury: Haldf demons sounds common..plant race?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Takita: im thinking they will be the only race with animal features
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Takita: hmm
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Takita: yeah thats true
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Tokikaze: Furries then?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - PhantomFury: Army of groots
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:11 PM - Assassin: Duck
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:12 PM - Tokikaze: I am Groot
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:12 PM - Takita: Maybe Spirit people (i'll get a better name for it)
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:12 PM - PhantomFury: I am Groot
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:12 PM - PhantomFury: Aetherians
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:13 PM - Mathew: Duckpeople is subclass of one piece minks
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:13 PM - Mathew: basically
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:13 PM - Takita: http://inkandquills.com/2015/09/04/creating-realistic-fantasy-races-and-creatures/
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:14 PM - Takita: I think im going to go after this
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:14 PM - Takita: when figuring out the last one
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:14 PM - Takita: unless there's something you guys want it as
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:14 PM - Takita: i might just twist all the races a little bit to keep it interesting
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:14 PM - Crusty: gay dolphin people
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:15 PM - Takita: lmao ofc you would say that
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:15 PM - PhantomFury: Ooh I like realistic fantasy races. i even thought of basic anatomy for my centaur

    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:15 PM - Takita: I'll throw around ideas and see where i end up
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:15 PM - PhantomFury: Humanoid torso stores the lung, rest of organ on horse body.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:16 PM - PhantomFury: Oh here is a unique idea for third race
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:16 PM - Takita: Hm?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:16 PM - PhantomFury: Some sort of parasite that grows by absorbing things around them
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: oooh
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Crusty: GAY
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: that could work
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Crusty: DOLPHIN
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Crusty: PEOPLE
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: I'm thinking that the world will obvs be fantasy themed and that people have a pendant they get at birth thats transparent until they hit a certain age where they get access to their magic
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: not all magic is magic some are pure healing abilities others are buffs etc
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: I dont know if thats a interesting concept tho
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: but thats the basics I got right now
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:17 PM - Takita: it might change later on
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:18 PM - PhantomFury: Sounds cool, maybe someone aspire to be something but their magic doesn't do that at all
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:19 PM - PhantomFury: "I want to be the mightiest warrier!" *has magic for growing flowers*
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:19 PM - Takita: I need to figure out how it will work
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:19 PM - Assassin: Scary D:
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:20 PM - PhantomFury: Hey, you just don't know them yet, Sin
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:20 PM - Takita: Might go for something similar to a system that hunter x hunter got for their nen
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:20 PM - PhantomFury: They might just want to sell you some muja fruit
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:20 PM - Takita: If duck would care to explain it for you (':
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:22 PM - PhantomFury: Would everyone have magic, though? Or just the majority?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:24 PM - Takita: I'm thinking that everyone has it but not everyone can use it if that makes sense
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:24 PM - PhantomFury: Ah, I see.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:25 PM - PhantomFury: So some got affinity with it while others, not so much? Like subjects in school?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:26 PM - Takita: Yeah and some people won't know how to activate it at all
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:26 PM - Takita: So they have it but don't at the same time
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:26 PM - PhantomFury: Magic Illiterates in other words
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:27 PM - Takita: Yeah
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:27 PM - Takita: That's a good word for it xD
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:28 PM - Tokikaze: Spirit people...hmmm...Phantomia?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:28 PM - Tokikaze: Nah, it sucks
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:29 PM - PhantomFury: Heh, even more so if magic is scroll reading :p
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:29 PM - Takita: Lmao true xD
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:29 PM - Tokikaze: Oh, hell no. Scroll reading is a pain in the arse
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:29 PM - PhantomFury: Spectren
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:29 PM - Takita: I'll see if I can figure something out this week
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:30 PM - PhantomFury: Scroll readingcould be cool too

    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:31 PM - Tokikaze: Guys, is Youjo Senki considered a Isekai genre?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:32 PM - Takita: Don't even know what it is
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:32 PM - Mathew: You gonna make me explain Nen?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:32 PM - PhantomFury: ^
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:32 PM - Mathew: And... I guess so?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:33 PM - PhantomFury: and da Duck explain dis majick
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:33 PM - Mathew: Youjo Senki is loli hitler
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:33 PM - Denian: Hard to balance what you want to do, Taki. I mean, it's far too easy to overpower someone by giving them a specific power.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:33 PM - Mathew: Explaining Nen is fucking annoying
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:33 PM - Mathew: It's hard enough to understand it yourself
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:34 PM - Takita: Yeah I know xd
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:34 PM - Takita: That's why it's just a concept right now
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:36 PM - Hano: Welp, I accidentally formated a corrupted SD card of my phone's. Now I'm trying to recover 3.4GB worth of video's and images over the course of 4 years
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:36 PM - PhantomFury: Oh wb, Den
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:36 PM - Hano: Lesson learned: Backup your shit onto your Laptop, then backup those shit onto an external drive
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:36 PM - PhantomFury: Oh damn, Hano-
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:36 PM - Hano: Yea. Kind hurts
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:37 PM - Hano: Would really suck if they were all gone
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:38 PM - PhantomFury: Hope you recover the,!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:38 PM - PhantomFury: *the,!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:38 PM - PhantomFury: **them!
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:39 PM - PhantomFury: Uh, Den, I forgot, did Dudley ever matured in the books or is this an MKO thing?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:40 PM - Denian: Dunno. I think he mellowed out somewhat after the Dementor attack before 5th year, but not sure.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:41 PM - Denian: Tbh, I didn't like the last two books, so I only read those once...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:42 PM - Denian: Watched 6th movie twicce, I think, but never watched either part of the seventh. Actually, I actively avoided watching them. That's how bad I thought the seventh book was.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:42 PM - PhantomFury: Oh wow
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:43 PM - PhantomFury: Like for me, I've only read the series once, but at the most, I kinda skimmed though some parts because back then I was boasting about my speed reading skills
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:44 PM - Hano: Well then, I think I've officially lost 4 years worth of data from my SD card
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:44 PM - Hano: RIP
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:44 PM - Denian: Yeah, well, it was a predictable risk. Rowling had a plan for the whole series from the start, which is good, but writing it took over a decade, and during those years, the books drifted from the plan. So books 6 and 7 were a desperate attempt to force everything back on track...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:46 PM - PhantomFury: Oh I see
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:46 PM - Denian: Oh, I'm probably the first German end consumer who finished reading the fifth book. Was the first person in the queue at the release event near me, and finished reading the book by 10AM.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:46 PM - PhantomFury: I kind of understain the pain, since I overplan my creative content and when I put them into action it can get oh-so-very-stale
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:47 PM - PhantomFury: And damn, that sucks, Hano...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:47 PM - PhantomFury: And that's nice, Den :p
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:47 PM - Denian: And I read the first 5 books like a dozen times, especially the third, which I thought was the best for some reason. 6 and 7 killed it, though.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:48 PM - PhantomFury: Oh, wow
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:50 PM - Denian: And, I mean, Rowling wasn't a good writer to begin with. She was so Cliche, as soon as I was done reading the chapter where Harry boards the Hogwarts Express for the first time, I knew that he would end up dating Ginny - considering I was 9 when I read that book for the first time, it had to be really obvious for me to notice.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:52 PM - Hano: Lmao

    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:52 PM - Hano: Google Photos, backed up all my memes from Reddit
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:52 PM - Hano: But not the whatsapp images
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:52 PM - PhantomFury: Well then
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:52 PM - Denian: Was funny, actually. All the way through book 5, the majority of HP fans (at least the German ones, since I was mostly on German forums back then) thought Harry would end up with Hermione... And I was all "nah, his relationship with Ginny has been planned from the start".
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:53 PM - PhantomFury: Heh is that so...I, uh, was on that train too. I don't even remember Ginny in the first book
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:53 PM - Denian: And what happens? He ends up with Ginny, in an obviously planned relationship, and Rowling admits that, the way the books developed, Hermione would have been the better choice :D
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:54 PM - PhantomFury: Developed as she may be, you'd think so
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:55 PM - Denian: Oh, she was all "look, mum, it's Harry Potter". I might actually remember it wrong and it might have been when they returned from Hogwarts, instead, but one of the scenes made it obvious.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:55 PM - PhantomFury: Ah
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:56 PM - Denian: I think I knew from the first one, though. She didn't say much in that one, but... Harry noticed that she was there. As an eleven year old boy. Hello?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:56 PM - PhantomFury: Oh yeah, I guess
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:57 PM - PhantomFury: Though it was overshadowed by how she is a side character for the most part and it wasn't conceivable for me at the time that such a relationship could happen.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 12:58 PM - Denian: I think the plan was to develop her character after the whole Chamber of Secrets thing, but then she barely got mentioned in the third book at all... If she got mentioned, that is. I don't remember her in that book. Nor in GoF.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:00 PM - PhantomFury: Nah Harry got this flirty thing going on with some other random girl in GoF
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:01 PM - Tokikaze: Tbh, I was partially irritated after the 4th
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:01 PM - Tokikaze: Revealing Voldemort as the main antagonist kinda lowered the rivalry between Harry and Draco
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:01 PM - Denian: I think she was mentioned as Neville's date for the ball... You know, in that scene where she and Hermione make fun of Ron (and Harry, a little) for not being able to find a date?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:01 PM - Denian: And then, in book 5, Rowling suddenly remembers that there's a female Weasley, but can't just put her with Harry immediately. So, her character development was introduced over the course of books 5 and 6, and in the sixth one, that relationship was forced in.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:02 PM - PhantomFury: uh I forgot, what did Cornelius do do get a visit from "Killer Bill"?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:02 PM - Denian: Kaze, there was never a serious rivalry between those two.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:02 PM - Tokikaze: Well. More of a contrast then?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:03 PM - PhantomFury: Malfoy was more of a class bully than a true antagonist
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:03 PM - Denian: Not quite sure, I think he followed too much of Umbridge's advice, wanting to retrieve Harry regardless of him dying due to it or something...
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:03 PM - PhantomFury: And I can kinda remember a bit of that, albeit vaguely
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:04 PM - Tokikaze: I was thinking of a character development which would have brought them to more than classic bully moments
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:04 PM - Denian: Malfoy was this little gnat that did its best to be annoying.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:04 PM - PhantomFury: oh right, thanks
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:05 PM - Tokikaze: As Gryffindor->Dumbledore->Harry and Slytherin->Voldemort->Draco
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:05 PM - Denian: Seriously, he wasn't a serious opponent, or even rival, even in the first book.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:05 PM - Tokikaze: But I guess it wouldn't have worked
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:05 PM - Tokikaze: That's why characters maturing over experience are a thing
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:06 PM - Denian: Nah. You barely ever have character development for the main antagonist.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:06 PM - PhantomFury: He was some snob in the first book, some jerk in the second...something something, beat harry up on the train
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:07 PM - Denian: He was a spoiled brat from the start, and that was his planned role through the end.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:08 PM - Denian: Seriously, Rowling did a good job planning everything - she just sucks at writing.
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:09 PM - PhantomFury: Somehow, I can somewhat relate
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Tokikaze: ^
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Takita: What should I make for lunch
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Tokikaze: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ne...nga-gets-live-action-film-in-december/.130316 Why japan has the habit of making live action from the anime?
    Apr 16, 2018 at 1:15 PM - Tokikaze: Ahem, Taki...
