  1. Playing with Koreans is rather fun.

     

  2. If throwing shade (your usual mechanism of defence) which contradicts what you've said about me in the past is your response to my request for constructive alternatives, then I rest my case.
  3. That's why the pressure is on with this revamp to make them active. Roy made it clear that inactivity and such will no longer be tolerated. Except that they do. Or was the recent motion to gut the CA team of the inactives just a prank by Roy? Speaking of ego boosts... I won't speak for the others, but you are making interesting observations for a community s̶t̶o̶n̶e̶r̶ advisor that carried a notorious reputation for struggling to hold simple conversations. Admittedly, I have a slight fondness for seeing you make a post like this. It seems almost like a form of long-awaited catharsis for you. Rather strange how a single post can serve to be your nail in the coffin for whatever degree of respect you had for a whole community, though. Apparently the community is at fault. Outside of gutting the CA team of inactivity (which is already in motion), what alternatives would you propose?
  4. Is it wise to make assumptions of the company's internal culture simply from the interview process alone? I know that first impressions are important, but still... If he still has time, he could ask for a tour of the work areas (if these particular companies allow for it; I know that some do for applicants they're willing to accept) to get a better feel for the internal culture. I realise that this is probably unlikely since he only has a couple of days left. If I were in this situation, I think I would choose the second company. Even if he wants to move away from that company later, the higher pay that they are offering gives him a larger safety net to fall back on. There is something to be said for the comfort that financial security can bring you.
  5. I can see where you're coming from, but it's an accurate analogy from @Black. No one is going to argue with the notion that the vast majority of time and effort that goes into GFL comes from Roy. GFL is a machine, and the money is used to maintain said machine. Would it not be fair to say that Roy is the most vital component of this machine? There is no need for a moral question to be posed here. Most of the truly well-established members of GFL aren't going to have a problem with Roy using at least a portion of the PayPal funds, which is a completely fair standpoint. Roy is obviously going to have a different perspective on that standpoint since, in his mind, it's going to be a considerable volume of community funds that are going solely to his own benefit. Roy isn't unique in this; people just naturally hate to feel like a burden to others. With this in mind, I still think it's good that there's a separate fund that goes towards Roy's well-being. Besides the implications that the public would infer from Roy taking the community funds for his own benefit, it means that Roy can sleep just a little more soundly at night with the knowledge that he doesn't have to use community funds to keep him healthy. One can hardly judge Roy in either scenario. After all, this isn't just for the betterment of an online community. It's for the betterment of a human being.

      Looking at that makes me feel nauseous.

       

      I make myself sick.

      you helped me discover a fetish

  8. Started playing on the TF2Ware server we had back in mid-2011. I only started using the forums towards the later months of that year.
  9. Well, let me know what you think of the first F/SN Heaven's Feel movie when you get the chance. I'm going to watch it as soon as I can.
  10. My last dog died on the same day that I was demoted a few months ago. I can't answer the second question of the poll without stretching the truth a tad on the first question. Sorry about that. Cats have their appeal, but I'll always prefer dogs.
  11. If you're lucky, it'll be more of a "Heyyy, Vsauce. Michael here."
  12. In addition to the Monogatari series, you people really need to watch Katanagatari.
  13. I realise that this must sound strange coming from me of all people, but I hope that this is resolved for you as quickly as possible. I always found it strange that you weren't in a hurry to have this condition treated as soon as possible, but it's better late than never. Especially with circumstances such as this, you shouldn't be afraid to take regular breaks from GFL. Directors, division leaders, server managers; they all remain to keep the machine running, after all. You can afford to do this.
