  1. Austin was on the Spawn on Me podcast recently.
  2. Movie/TV recommendations

    This is pretty much apropos of nothing, aside from Escape from LA and it both featuring rescuing women in a vaguely dystopian future, but I heartily recommend Streets of Fire. It features a cracking 80s soundtrack, Willem Dafoe as a PVC clad biker gang leader, Diane Lane, and the B actor Michael Pare being asked to deliver the one note that's precisely in his wheelhouse.
  3. Masculinity

    IMO it's not just the act itself that makes something harassment or not. 2 things off the top of my head that would apply in this hypothetical situation: 1) Could you reasonably be expected to know that the thing you say/manner of touching is unwelcome. 2) Is there a power dynamic present that would make her hesitant to say no despite that being what she would want to express if free to do so.
  4. Tacoma from Fullbright

    After finishing it, I saw that one of the achievements is for spotting the cat in EVERY AR scene. I saw the cat in like...two. That's me, good ole "Sherlock" juv3nal, never misses a thing.
  5. The McElroy Family of Products

    This doesn't bear on the mcelroys directly, but since thread tags include coolgames inc and car boys, the future of those shows may be affected.

    I haven't watched as much (so far) this time around, but I liked both BotW and Titanfall 2. (edit: oh also SuperHOT) I think what I like to watch has shifted over time...I'm not "no out of bounds glitching ever" but if a major part of the run is an OOB glitch I've seen before, my interest drops pretty dramatically.

    thanks!

    aw crud, it's even worse than I previously thought. I was thinking "oh well, guess I'll just watch the VOD on twitch even though I kind of hate twitch/prefer youtube" but they haven't even broken it out by run, so I can't pick and choose what I want to watch without having to scan through a bunch of crud or cross reference it with the schedule. I wonder if they had a massive shortfall of volunteers or something.

    am I crazy or did they used to post to their youtube channel almost the same day/within 24 hours? there's nothing up as of yet.

    I wouldn't say none of it but cgi-trailers and concept-art.They showed a tech/engine demo thingy:
  11. Youtube Appointment Viewing

    I've been watching a ton of actual play tabletop rpgs recently. If you're into that sort of thing, I'd recommend: Critical Role, Acquisitions Inc C Team, Dice, Camera, Action, and Corporate SINs. They're all D&D except the last one which is shadowrun.
  12. I'm not at all privy to how moderation works on waypoint, so I have no idea if this is at all applicable, but in at least one forum I'm on, stuff that is exceptionally offensive gets deleted, along with anything quoting it that responds to it. In such a circumstance, getting something flagged sooner rather than later can result in less work because if you delete the comments of people justifiably upset at the original offensive comment, some of them will understandably be upset about having their comment deleted and then the mods have to field angry pms or whatever. If you can curb the impulse by getting people to flag instead of angrily responding, then that potentially cuts down on headache not only because there will hypothetically be fewer such responses but also because you will get to the offensive comments faster so fewer people have time to respond.
  13. At a certain point it just becomes a question of how many eyeballs the mod team has available to keep an eye on how many potentially contentious threads. IMO it's a valid choice to close a thread before something bad gets posted if the mod team feels the topic is more likely than others to result in bad behavior. As for inconsistency, maybe their idea of where that "potential for badness" threshold is changes over time or depending who's on duty. It's hard to imagine a mod policy that doesn't occasionally come down to individuals making judgement calls that even the other mods won't necessarily agree with 100% of the time, moreso with a site that's still relatively new-ish and figuring stuff out.
