Why are you religious and why is it important to you?

2020.09.17 22:30 Arophax1 Why are you religious and why is it important to you?

I was told you guys would like this kind of question so I figured I'd give it a shot.
This got taken down. Before on change my view. If it gets taken out again I'll remove the more sensitive questions since this is important to me.
If a reddit moderator is reading this no i am not pushing athiesm. That is not my goal. I am not trying to disprove god. I genuinely want to learn from the religious. Learn about their beleifs and why they beleive it. I want to understand is all because I have become toxic towards religious people irl which is making me a bad person. I want to be a good human being and an accepting one. That requires understanding. The queer questions I am not debating. If someone explains why they don't like trans people (I am trans and gay so you know) I am not going to debate them or escalate things. I simply will ask why, and once explained move on.
I may disagree but I'm not trying to change minds I'm trying to understand them. If this does not fit your reddit I understand and okay but I just want to try and ask with those added questions since they are important to me. I will remove them if they are too much though.
Up front, some of these questions get deep and hard to answer. Comments will probably have pro lifers, anti lgbtq, and anti feminists.
I do not agree with those opiolnions but I am asking for them. I want to understand them. Not all of the questions are doom and gloom! Some are quite peaceful, just wanted to warn if your're sensitive to those viewpoints don't view the comments and don't argue with them over their opinions. I'm not going to personally. I asked their opinion, I can't then argue about it I can only ask why. I will argue over false information but that's it. If you say gay people are bad because they kiss the same sex I won't agree with it, but you formed your opinion on a fact so I can't argue against it.
This post may not be bigotry but the comments may be so I understand if my post just gets deleted. I am NOT trying to instigate. I just want the opinions. I don't want to argue over anything but facts not opinions. This is also mainly pertaining to religion. I want to know how religion backs up their claims. Once again to understand. I do argue with these types of people but not today, today I want to understand.
This is a discussion mainly pertaining to religion and the religious/spiritual. Please, no athiests giving their opinion on what religious think. If you used to be religious and have a reason why you used to beleive a certain point then that's fine but I don't want any "it's because christians blank" stuff. You aren't them so you can't vouch for them.
Some of the questions don't require religious affiliation so athiests can respond to those but if it's specific to religion, please don't put your opinion. I'm asking for theirs specifically.
Alright for starters I'm athiestic, born in the Bible belt and raised in church.
I am not currently going to change my athiestic views, I found happiness in it. Does that mean I'll never change my views? No. But it is a pretty big viewpoint that would take me more than one discussion. Right now I want to change my opinions on religion. I am currently dismissive. Others should beleive what they want but often, and this is a bad trait of mine, if you say you believe in gods or spirits or an afterlife I roll my eyes and think "stupid but okay" which is wrong.
I cannot truly be neutral on religion if I view it negatively and get upset when asked to join in a prayer or would groan if asked to go to church with someone on a special occasion. I should be open to it and not force myself not to enjoy something simply because I don't beleive in it.
I will make my world views clear. I am athiestic and a TST Satanist. For those who do not know TST satanism is a denomination that mainly surrounds separation of church and state and pushing forth that all religions and lack of religions should be viewed equally.
This post is to help with me better practicing one of our tenets which is not to force others to be athiestic or TST Satanist and instead accept all view points so long as there is no harm. Despite this I will be asking for viewpoints surround harm to. I won't agree with you but understanding is how we change minds so regardless of that's right now, I will listen.
I personally do not beleive any religious text should be in law, nor is a reliable foundation for law. It's fine if you use it to dictate your own life (once again given the text isn't telling you to harm yourself majorly in order to please a deity, fasting is fine to me but self harm like cutting or other things of the sort i do not agree with) but when you use it to dictate others is when I no longer agree with you
I AM NOT TRYING TO PUSH THIS OPINION. I want to make.it absolutely clear this point is not to convert you to athiesm. It is not push athiest good Christian bad. It is to understand differing viewpoints. That is all. I am biased to think religion is bad. I want to change that.
I may ask questions about lgbtq and women's rights. That's not because I think all christians are anti queer etc. They are not but those who are I want to understand why they have that opinion. The better I understand people the better I can be and understanding a viewpoint even if it's against my own helps me better understand people who think that way.
If you comment why you are anti lgbtq I'm not gonna try and change your mind. I'll ask why and that will be the end of it because for now that is all I want to know. I don't really want other people to respond to responses under this comment. This is not a debate. If someone gives an opinion and explains why move on, even if you disagree. I am meant to disagree with some of these points that's the point, I can disagree so long as I understand. If you bring up false factual information I will inform you of that but I won't scream "you're wrong!" That's not the goal here.
If you ask me something to clarify I will and if you ask for sources I will give them. Don't debate me. My opinion is my own. Ask why but once I explain move on. You can criticize sources same as I can yours and you do not need a source to lay your opinion. Just an explanation.
There are a lot of questions but they all pertain to the same general topic. It just specifies the question a bit more.
Here are a range of questions I have along with some opinions. If a questions strikes you please answer it but let me know the question number so I know what you are referencing. It will make things much smoother. Not all questions need to be answered by everyone. You can if you want but I'm expecting you respond to what's important to you. Now let's beging.
  1. Why does religion bring you comfort?
    Why does it bring you comfort, and if you beleive athiesm is sad, why is that? Sure I joke about being a piece of sentient meat flying on a speck of dirt but that doesn't make me feel meaningless. Things will end and I will never feel this again. Is that scary? Sure, all unknowns are scary, but it's also cool. What if you never became a sentient creature? Nothing much would be lost, you wouldn't know, but being here now is really cool.
  2. Why are humans more special than animals or plants? Why are we gods special little creatures.
I don't ... Let me phrase this right. I'm not saying the religious are pretentious or self rightous (understand the main religion I understand is christianity, you may have a religion where the point is you aren't devine or special, I simply may not have learned about it and if you do please inform me below. I love to learn!) But I personally don't understand why being made by a deity would bring me comfort. What's the purpose in that?
I suppose it's neat but I don't see how it brings life purpose. I am not above anything. I eat meat such as cows, but that's not because I feel I'm above them or think they are worth less than me. They satiate my hunger and keep me alive, I respect every animal I eat for providing me with life and I understand the importance of respecting them for this reason. If I was eaten tomorrow by a black bear I'd be fine with it and wouldn't want it hunted down. I am not above or below. We are one. If I take from nature to nurture myself as we all do, I must give back to nature in my death. I wish to rot out in the open, I wish for cows to feast upon grass that contains my nutrients. It only seems fair.
So the sort of idea that a god made us specifically as the top, as his special creations is peculiar to me. Why am I more special than that bear? A lot of people answer with sentience but all animals are sentient. They take actions to survive. Monkeys do things specifically for pleasure that have nothing to do with survival. If you live and breathe you're sentient. Even a worm knows it's alive.
  1. Is hell moral? What do you think hell is like? Who deserves hell? Does a hell even exist to you?
Another question I've always wondered is if your religion has a hell do you think it's moral? I know to most the god makes morality so if he sees it as moral than it is but as I see you also have free will as well. I want your honest opinion on hell. Do you think eternal punishment is fair for anyone? Do beleive in hell but only beleive it's preserved for the worst of the worst? If so who are the worst of the worst and where do those in the middle go? Do they still go heaven or are they stick in between?
Do you beleive a soul in hell can be redeemed? As in hell is like a prison you are punished and then freed, or do you think it's simply game over for the sinner? Do you think it's fair for someone to be eternally punished for mistakes they made within a 100 year time period?
  1. What are your views on heaven? Does/can it exist? Are you truly happy or forced to be? Who gets into heaven?
If you beleive in a heaven how do you think it works? Are you forced into euphoria? If someone you loved was in hell do you think you could truly be happy in heaven? Do you think happiness can exist without misery to contrast and vise versa?
For those who beleive not believing is reason for hell do you think those who never got the chance to learn are included? If so why? If not, why not? If I am just by happenstance someone who doesn't beleive but lives by his rules. Of course do minor sins in my life but as a whole try my best do I still go to heaven or am I to go to hell?
  1. Is your god all loving or is he to be feared? Is he both? If so how?
Is god loving or hateful? It took the sacrifice of jesus for God to offer people redemption. Why couldn't he simply offer it based on character and if a person tried to be good in life or not? Why do you beleive it required sacrifice?
Am I to fear him or love him? If he is indeed all loving why would there be a need to fear? Wouldn't he be understanding and if we failed our earth test teach us in heaven ?
  1. Is your religious text law? Why or why not?
For those who beleive that the bible or any holy book is law why? Some of this is specifically aimed at christianity but if this applies to your religion as well please comment your response. Why should we follow the laws of your text? Which laws do we follow? Is the old testament valid or invalid. If it is valid then is stoning people okay? If not how do you know?
Why are you personally religious? I don't mean "I was raised in church" but rather did you ever ask yourself why you beleive and why you continue to beleive. I don't not want to convert to athiesm I just want to know why YOU chose to beleive something.
  1. Do you truly think God isn't flawed at all? Is he omnipotent and all powerful? If so why doesn't he help those who need him?
If god is omnipotent he knows if you are going to heaven or hell and exactly how you'll respond to every scenerio. In that case what is the point of earth as a trial? I may misunderstand what you mean by omnipotent to please inform me but this has always confused me.
If he is all powerful why does he refuse to help some but help others? Some people live entirely miserable lives of no fault of their own, some of these people are even religious, but he doesn't seem to help them. I see the bible perceived as fact a lot (you may be christian and not beleive this, and that's valid and I would like to know why) but if it is factual and he did split open oceans and cause plauges could he not make sure that homeless man isn't picking the rotten parts off dumpster sandwiches to survive?
I know trials are a thing but but why are these trials so vastly different? Some people don't get into the college they wanted while others are diagnosed with cancer at 5. Those are not equally easy to overcome or even close to as much of a strain on faith as the other and seems kind of unfair. If you give two people a test, one an sat, another a 5th grade biology test and the sat tester fails it kinda seems set up and rigged against them?
I am once again trying to understand. I don't understand, there can be a reason that you have that I did not know and I would like to know so I can understand why people beleive despite horrible tragedies.
  1. What's the buzz about faith? Why is it necessary?
If faith is necessary to your beleifs why? Why would having proof of a god eliminate free will. People could still choose to follow or not follow him. It would give people more free will I think. I just personally find it unfair to require someone to beleive in your existence with no solid proof of said existence.
If you're response to that question is "science is faith based too" why do you beleive that?
9.Should children be brought up into your personal religion? (My personal opinion is no but please let me know if you beleive otherwise and why you think so.)
This one is touchy though I guess this all is but do you think it's morally right to push an impressionable (I use impressionable not to try and make religious who do this sound evil, I don't think they are but was the best word I could use to describe how children beleive just about anything coming from and authority such as parent therefore find it difficult to fo their own opinions) child into any beleifs, athiestic, theist, or religious? My personal stance is no. People should be given an array of religious texts and choose for themselves which brings them most comfort, I wouldn't even want my child to become an atheist because papa is, I would want them to make that choice on their own. But if you think otherwise then why?
  1. Why do you beleive in reincarnation, ghosts, and or souls?
Reincarnation and ghost people, why do you beleive in that? How do you imagine it works? If you are reborn and don't remember the past life why does it matter. How is that different than simply dying/ being born? If not, why?
I'm assuming you beleive in souls if you beleive in ghosts. What is the soul and why do you beleive in it? Why aren't ghosts present everywhere? Odds are somebody at some point has been burried beneath where you are so why aren't we all haunted? (This is a western understanding of the ghost, if you have a different beleif once again share. I really want to learn!) Could there be a happy ghost or do they all have to be miserable?
  1. Why are you pro life? How does your religion tie into it if you are?
Another touchy one, so please no violent arguments. I'm pro choice, that isn't going to change, but you may be able to change my understanding and not assume being pro life means being unsympathetic for having a singular opinion. People are sums of their parts. One part doesn't make them bad even if I strongly disagree. The world isn't black and white. Why do you think abortion is wrong? If a baby is too much for the mother's body and she is dying does the child or mom's life come first? For rape victims why do you think they should follow through with birth? Child rape victims too, I just want to understand.
12.Do you agree with sex ed? Do you think it's a famly matter? Do you think people should practice abstinence? Why? Should people wait til marriage? Is causual sex wrong to you?
Do you think sex ed is good? Why or why not? If you think it's inappropriate then why? If you think it's a family matter then why? Why shouldn't kids learn of their body and about sex from people who have studied sex organs and sex their whole life. Why no condoms or birth control if your're against it? It's lowers std spread and teen pregnancy, and birth control also helps people who have bad periods or crazy hormone levels so if you are, why are you against it?
If you beleive in a abstinence why? I beleive people should choose if they want sex before or after marriage absolutely! But why it wrong for others to want to explore that beforehand. Some people such as myself don't ever wish to get married so why would it be wrong? if you are waiting on marriage why? That's not a bad thing at all I think it's wonderful for people to know what they want for themselves but what's special about waiting for marriage to you?
13.Are you anti lgbtq? If so why? If not , why not? Do you think the bible backs your beleifs? How so? Would you still vote for queer rights even if you personally don't agree. Why or why not?
Once again touchy. No fighting In comments. I want to try and understand please and no discussion goes anywhere by just spewing hate. If you think the bible or any religious text is anti lgbtq why? Do you think gay people are immoral? Why do YOU beleive being gay is wrong, not just the religious text, but do you think being gay causes harm or is a bad thing? If you don't beleive it causes harm but still see it as wrong why do you think God sees it as wrong?
Do you think queer people should be allowed to be queer even if you disagree? Why or why not?
Should trans people be allowed to transition even if you disagree? Why or why not? How do you define gender? If based on gentalia how do you define hermaphrodites? Why do you think God thinks transitioning is wrong?
Do you view us as evil? I know that's far out there but some do see us as really bad and almost demo like. If that's you please explain your beleif and why you beleive it. Do you think I'm a bad person for being queer or misguided? Do you think gay people deserve hell?
  1. Is man above woman or equal? Are men to be the leaders and women servants? Why?
This confused me in church a lot as well. The whole idea that every man was to lead his wife despite some women clearly being smarte stronger than some men. Do you beleive this is true? Should men have the final say, if so why?
I'd that how it was meant to be taken? If so how was it mean to be taken. What does man leads the house mean to you?
  1. What do you think about bible controdictory/mistranslation.
Is mistranslation okay? There are many rewrites of the Bible that contradict eachother, is the text still valid to you? Is it valid but only the original translation? If you use one of the modern translations why do you trust It? If you use a specific modern translation why that specific one?
This isn't to disprove your beleifs just understand the bible more, and why people use the Bible more. I'm not trying to do an "unreliable text" jab. I just want to hear your ideas on which bible is the one people should listen to and why, if you follow the bible at all.
  1. Do you think your religious text is constantly misunderstood and used wrong. If so why?
I've met christians who are pro choice, pro lgbtq, and pro feminism who claim the bible supports their views and that people use the text wrong. How so? Why are their interpretations incorrect? How did you conclude that the bible supports your opinion and not a different one? Do you even beleive in the bible or do you skip it and simple beleive in the Bible's version of god?
  1. Do you beleive in voodoo/ witchcraft. If so why and why is it important to you? Also if it works then why not use it as often?
I've been introduced to voodoo and witch type people and cannot grasp the beleif. I don't understand how certain rocks (this is a simplictic explanation, there's more to it than that but still usually some natural elements are often used because of special "powers") and things cause things to happen. Why do you beleive it and is it more than just positions and revenge. (I'm also not talking about nature witchcraft, you may share that too below but this is aimed more towards magic kind of witchcraft.
  1. Is your religion a cult..why or why not?
To explain I see a lot of religions as cults.it's why I often view them on a bad light so I need to understand why it isn't and how it's different. I don't want to view it that way anymore because it doesn't seem that way but it ticks the boxes.
Things like indoctrination of the young and threat of punishment of hell if you left never sat well with me so what do you think and how do you think it's different? Once again I don't beleive it's a cult but I can't quite figure out why. (Another one aimed at christians. Let me know if your beleif views differently though)
  1. Do you beleive in science? Do you think of science as a religion? Is science faith based to you?
Some religious people don't trust science and I'd like to understand why not. Both science and your beleifs can be valid simotaneously since god is supernatural and science deals with natural things so why is science bad to you?
Do you think science is flawed, if so how and why?
You do not have to answer every single one of these questions. Just If a few pop out to you I want to hear your response. I'm not gonna say I'd never be religious but it's not my aim in this post, nor is the aim to make you lose your beleifs I just want to learn form people and not just the insane angry christians on facebook. That isn't all of you and it's unfair to shape my opinion of you on that so to be less judgmental I must listen to you all.
I am open and wanting to change my honest underlying hatred of the religious due to abuse and upbringing. No I'm not religiously traumatized and that's why I "lost faith" I don't want any of those. I lost faith because I love facts, and I simply didn't like the idea of the religion not being based on anything that I could see to be proven factual. You can argue I stopped going to church because it made me uncomfortable but it wasn't the reason I stopped beleiving.
Even if I disagree strongly with some of you, which I will, it is impossible to live and not disagree strongly. Some of these disagreements may lead me to not really like you but I must respect your personal opinion so long as that opinion isn't forced unto others. Even if you are forcing it I'm not gonna argue about that under this post. I am asking for your opinions regardless if I agree or not so I cannot get mad when you give them.
The abortion and lgbt question I know is going to make a lot of people devicive. I don't like pro lifers or anti lgbtq people but just because I don't like them doesn't mean I shouldn't learn from or try to better understand them. Understanding gives me self peace and even is someone here beleives I shouldn't be trans if they're honest about it and explain it's easier to move on than constantly wondering why. I prefer that to saying you aren't against me being trans but constantly trying to make me doubt being trans or detranstition. You obviously aren't okay with it. Just say it and we can all move on.
Reddit may auto delete some comments unfortunately because of anti lgbtq sayings or opinions. I want to hear them so if it gets deleted dm me and I'll try to respond. Answer here if you can it's easier to keep track of but if you have a lot of questions for me you can DM me as well.
This once again is mainly aimed at christianity but if you are of a different religion and find some of these questions pop out at you let me know about your religion! It makes it easier to respect and understand others if I know all of what's out there :).
Once again please don't try to convert me. Give me facts and your opinion if those facts/ opinions change my mind so be it but please no "you must find god in your heart" or " listen to the word of God" that stuff isn't going to change my mind or forward the discussion. I live in georgia. I hear that all the time and if a church lady at my door can't convert me with those words, you will not be able to convert me with the same words over text.
I am once again not trying to convert you. My beleifs are that differencing beleifs are essential for us to move forward as a society even if some of those beleifs are uncomfortable.
Don't be malitious, I'm not trying to diss your religion and I'll try and word responses so it doesn't come off that way I'm not trying to change your beleif but understand and offer my opinion. If my opinion changes your beleif so be it but I will not be the guy to go "well I didn't see jesus walk on water so it didn't happen" I cannot prove or disprove your god or beleifs if they are supernatural. I can't do that so it just makes the discussion go circular and lead nowhere. The only argument I will make is if information you give me is false in which I will dispute it and offer citation of where I got my information which you are free to criticize!
I'm not gonna tell you your opinion is wrong but if you say "gay guys are rapists" I will dispute that. You can have the opinion that you don't like gay guys, you can't spread false information. That's just manipulative and shapes other people's opinions based on the same false information which means they aren't making choices based on reality but your reality.
Since age is important and sex too for some people regarding these issues I am 17, I am a transgender male, I am gay.
Thank you in advance for sharing and helping me better myself and understand. It really does mean alot no matter how hard the pill may be to swallow.

I personally do not beleive any religious text should be in law, nor is a reliable foundation for law. It's fine if you use it to dictate your own life (once again given the text isn't telling you to harm yourself majorly in order to please a deity, fasting is fine to me but self harm like cutting or other things of the sort i do not agree with) but when you use it to dictate others is when I no longer agree with you
I AM NOT TRYING TO PUSH THIS OPINION. I want to make.it absolutely clear this point is not to convert you to athiesm. It is not push athiest good Christian bad. It is to understand differing viewpoints. That is all. I am biased to think religion is bad. I want to change that.
I may ask questions about lgbtq and women's rights. That's not because I think all christians are anti queer etc. They are not but those who are I want to understand why they have that opinion. The better I understand people the better I can be and understanding a viewpoint even if it's against my own helps me better understand people who think that way.
If you comment why you are anti lgbtq I'm not gonna try and change your mind. I'll ask why and that will be the end of it because for now that is all I want to know. I don't really want other people to respond to responses under this post. This is not a debate. If someone gives an opinion and explains why move on, even if you disagree. I am meant to disagree with some of these points that's the point, I can disagree so long as I understand. If you bring up false factual information I will inform you of that but I won't scream "you're wrong!" That's not the goal here.
If you ask me something to clarify I will and if you ask for sources I will give them. Don't debate me. My opinion is my own. Ask why but once I explain move on. You can criticize sources same as I can yours and you do not need a source to lay your opinion. Just an explanation.
There are a lot of questions but they all pertain to the same general topic. It just specifies the question a bit more.
Here are a range of questions I have along with some opinions. If a questions strikes you please answer it but let me know the question number so I know what you are referencing. It will make things much smoother. Not all questions need to be answered by everyone. You can if you want but I'm expecting you respond to what's important to you. Now let's begin.
  1. Why does religion bring you comfort?
    Why does it bring you comfort, and if you beleive athiesm is sad, why is that? Sure I joke about being a piece of sentient meat flying on a speck of dirt but that doesn't make me feel meaningless. Things will end and I will never feel this again. Is that scary? Sure, all unknowns are scary, but it's also cool. What if you never became a sentient creature? Nothing much would be lost, you wouldn't know, but being here now is really cool.
  2. Why are humans more special than animals or plants? Why are we gods special little creatures.
I don't ... Let me phrase this right. I'm not saying the religious are pretentious or self rightous (understand the main religion I understand is christianity, you may have a religion where the point is you aren't devine or special, I simply may not have learned about it and if you do please inform me below. I love to learn!) But I personally don't understand why being made by a deity would bring me comfort. What's the purpose in that?
I suppose it's neat but I don't see how it brings life purpose. I am not above anything. I eat meat such as cows, but that's not because I feel I'm above them or think they are worth less than me. They satiate my hunger and keep me alive, I respect every animal I eat for providing me with life and I understand the importance of respecting them for this reason. If I was eaten tomorrow by a black bear I'd be fine with it and wouldn't want it hunted down. I am not above or below. We are one. If I take from nature to nurture myself as we all do, I must give back to nature in my death. I wish to rot out in the open, I wish for cows to feast upon grass that contains my nutrients. It only seems fair.
So the sort of idea that a god made us specifically as the top, as his special creations is peculiar to me. Why am I more special than that bear? A lot of people answer with sentience but all animals are sentient. They take actions to survive. Monkeys do things specifically for pleasure that have nothing to do with survival. If you live and breathe you're sentient. Even a worm knows it's alive.
  1. Is hell moral? What do you think hell is like? Who deserves hell? Does a hell even exist to you?
Another question I've always wondered is if your religion has a hell do you think it's moral? I know to most the god makes morality so if he sees it as moral than it is but as I see you also have free will as well. I want your honest opinion on hell. Do you think eternal punishment is fair for anyone? Do beleive in hell but only beleive it's preserved for the worst of the worst? If so who are the worst of the worst and where do those in the middle go? Do they still go heaven or are they stick in between?
Do you beleive a soul in hell can be redeemed? As in hell is like a prison you are punished and then freed, or do you think it's simply game over for the sinner? Do you think it's fair for someone to be eternally punished for mistakes they made within a 100 year time period?
  1. What are your views on heaven? Does/can it exist? Are you truly happy or forced to be? Who gets into heaven?
If you beleive in a heaven how do you think it works? Are you forced into euphoria? If someone you loved was in hell do you think you could truly be happy in heaven? Do you think happiness can exist without misery to contrast and vise versa?
For those who beleive not believing is reason for hell do you think those who never got the chance to learn are included? If so why? If not, why not? If I am just by happenstance someone who doesn't beleive but lives by his rules. Of course do minor sins in my life but as a whole try my best do I still go to heaven or am I to go to hell?
  1. Is your god all loving or is he to be feared? Is he both? If so how?
Is god loving or hateful? It took the sacrifice of jesus for God to offer people redemption. Why couldn't he simply offer it based on character and if a person tried to be good in life or not? Why do you beleive it required sacrifice?
Am I to fear him or love him? If he is indeed all loving why would there be a need to fear? Wouldn't he be understanding and if we failed our earth test teach us in heaven ?
  1. Is your religious text law? Why or why not?
For those who beleive that the bible or any holy book is law why? Some of this is specifically aimed at christianity but if this applies to your religion as well please comment your response. Why should we follow the laws of your text? Which laws do we follow? Is the old testament valid or invalid. If it is valid then is stoning people okay? If not how do you know?
Why are you personally religious? I don't mean "I was raised in church" but rather did you ever ask yourself why you beleive and why you continue to beleive. I don't not want to convert to athiesm I just want to know why YOU chose to beleive something.
  1. Do you truly think God isn't flawed at all? Is he omnipotent and all powerful? If so why doesn't he help those who need him?
If god is omnipotent he knows if you are going to heaven or hell and exactly how you'll respond to every scenerio. In that case what is the point of earth as a trial? I may misunderstand what you mean by omnipotent to please inform me but this has always confused me.
If he is all powerful why does he refuse to help some but help others? Some people live entirely miserable lives of no fault of their own, some of these people are even religious, but he doesn't seem to help them. I see the bible perceived as fact a lot (you may be christian and not beleive this, and that's valid and I would like to know why) but if it is factual and he did split open oceans and cause plauges could he not make sure that homeless man isn't picking the rotten parts off dumpster sandwiches to survive?
I know trials are a thing but but why are these trials so vastly different? Some people don't get into the college they wanted while others are diagnosed with cancer at 5. Those are not equally easy to overcome or even close to as much of a strain on faith as the other and seems kind of unfair. If you give two people a test, one an sat, another a 5th grade biology test and the sat tester fails it kinda seems set up and rigged against them?
I am once again trying to understand. I don't understand, there can be a reason that you have that I did not know and I would like to know so I can understand why people beleive despite horrible tragedies.
  1. What's the buzz about faith? Why is it necessary?
If faith is necessary to your beleifs why? Why would having proof of a god eliminate free will. People could still choose to follow or not follow him. It would give people more free will I think. I just personally find it unfair to require someone to beleive in your existence with no solid proof of said existence.
If you're response to that question is "science is faith based too" why do you beleive that?
9.Should children be brought up into your personal religion? (My personal opinion is no but please let me know if you beleive otherwise and why you think so.)
This one is touchy though I guess this all is but do you think it's morally right to push an impressionable (I use impressionable not to try and make religious who do this sound evil, I don't think they are but was the best word I could use to describe how children beleive just about anything coming from and authority such as parent therefore find it difficult to fo their own opinions) child into any beleifs, athiestic, theist, or religious? My personal stance is no. People should be given an array of religious texts and choose for themselves which brings them most comfort, I wouldn't even want my child to become an atheist because papa is, I would want them to make that choice on their own. But if you think otherwise then why?
  1. Why do you beleive in reincarnation, ghosts, and or souls?
Reincarnation and ghost people, why do you beleive in that? How do you imagine it works? If you are reborn and don't remember the past life why does it matter. How is that different than simply dying/ being born? If not, why?
I'm assuming you beleive in souls if you beleive in ghosts. What is the soul and why do you beleive in it? Why aren't ghosts present everywhere? Odds are somebody at some point has been burried beneath where you are so why aren't we all haunted? (This is a western understanding of the ghost, if you have a different beleif once again share. I really want to learn!) Could there be a happy ghost or do they all have to be miserable?
  1. Why are you pro life? How does your religion tie into it if you are?
Another touchy one, so please no violent arguments. I'm pro choice, that isn't going to change, but you may be able to change my understanding and not assume being pro life means being unsympathetic for having a singular opinion. People are sums of their parts. One part doesn't make them bad even if I strongly disagree. The world isn't black and white. Why do you think abortion is wrong? If a baby is too much for the mother's body and she is dying does the child or mom's life come first? For rape victims why do you think they should follow through with birth? Child rape victims too, I just want to understand.
12.Do you agree with sex ed? Do you think it's a famly matter? Do you think people should practice abstinence? Why? Should people wait til marriage? Is causual sex wrong to you?
Do you think sex ed is good? Why or why not? If you think it's inappropriate then why? If you think it's a family matter then why? Why shouldn't kids learn of their body and about sex from people who have studied sex organs and sex their whole life. Why no condoms or birth control if your're against it? It's lowers std spread and teen pregnancy, and birth control also helps people who have bad periods or crazy hormone levels so if you are, why are you against it?
If you beleive in a abstinence why? I beleive people should choose if they want sex before or after marriage absolutely! But why it wrong for others to want to explore that beforehand. Some people such as myself don't ever wish to get married so why would it be wrong? if you are waiting on marriage why? That's not a bad thing at all I think it's wonderful for people to know what they want for themselves but what's special about waiting for marriage to you?
13.Are you anti lgbtq? If so why? If not , why not? Do you think the bible backs your beleifs? How so? Would you still vote for queer rights even if you personally don't agree. Why or why not?
Once again touchy. No fighting In comments. I want to try and understand please and no discussion goes anywhere by just spewing hate. If you think the bible or any religious text is anti lgbtq why? Do you think gay people are immoral? Why do YOU beleive being gay is wrong, not just the religious text, but do you think being gay causes harm or is a bad thing? If you don't beleive it causes harm but still see it as wrong why do you think God sees it as wrong?
Do you think queer people should be allowed to be queer even if you disagree? Why or why not?
Should trans people be allowed to transition even if you disagree? Why or why not? How do you define gender? If based on gentalia how do you define hermaphrodites? Why do you think God thinks transitioning is wrong?
Do you view us as evil? I know that's far out there but some do see us as really bad and almost demo like. If that's you please explain your beleif and why you beleive it. Do you think I'm a bad person for being queer or misguided? Do you think gay people deserve hell?
  1. Is man above woman or equal? Are men to be the leaders and women servants? Why?
This confused me in church a lot as well. The whole idea that every man was to lead his wife despite some women clearly being smarte stronger than some men. Do you beleive this is true? Should men have the final say, if so why?
I'd that how it was meant to be taken? If so how was it mean to be taken. What does man leads the house mean to you?
  1. What do you think about bible controdictory/mistranslation.
Is mistranslation okay? There are many rewrites of the Bible that contradict eachother, is the text still valid to you? Is it valid but only the original translation? If you use one of the modern translations why do you trust It? If you use a specific modern translation why that specific one?
This isn't to disprove your beleifs just understand the bible more, and why people use the Bible more. I'm not trying to do an "unreliable text" jab. I just want to hear your ideas on which bible is the one people should listen to and why, if you follow the bible at all.
  1. Do you think your religious text is constantly misunderstood and used wrong. If so why?
I've met christians who are pro choice, pro lgbtq, and pro feminism who claim the bible supports their views and that people use the text wrong. How so? Why are their interpretations incorrect? How did you conclude that the bible supports your opinion and not a different one? Do you even beleive in the bible or do you skip it and simple beleive in the Bible's version of god?
  1. Do you beleive in voodoo/ witchcraft. If so why and why is it important to you? Also if it works then why not use it as often?
I've been introduced to voodoo and witch type people and cannot grasp the beleif. I don't understand how certain rocks (this is a simplictic explanation, there's more to it than that but still usually some natural elements are often used because of special "powers") and things cause things to happen. Why do you beleive it and is it more than just positions and revenge. (I'm also not talking about nature witchcraft, you may share that too below but this is aimed more towards magic kind of witchcraft.
  1. Is your religion a cult..why or why not?
To explain I see a lot of religions as cults.it's why I often view them on a bad light so I need to understand why it isn't and how it's different. I don't want to view it that way anymore because it doesn't seem that way but it ticks the boxes.
Things like indoctrination of the young and threat of punishment of hell if you left never sat well with me so what do you think and how do you think it's different? Once again I don't beleive it's a cult but I can't quite figure out why. (Another one aimed at christians. Let me know if your beleif views differently though)
  1. Do you beleive in science? Do you think of science as a religion? Is science faith based to you?
Some religious people don't trust science and I'd like to understand why not. Both science and your beleifs can be valid simotaneously since god is supernatural and science deals with natural things so why is science bad to you?
Do you think science is flawed, if so how and why?
You do not have to answer every single one of these questions. Just If a few pop out to you I want to hear your response. I'm not gonna say I'd never be religious but it's not my aim in this post, nor is the aim to make you lose your beleifs I just want to learn form people and not just the insane angry christians on facebook. That isn't all of you and it's unfair to shape my opinion of you on that so to be less judgmental I must listen to you all.
I am open and wanting to change my honest underlying hatred of the religious due to abuse and upbringing. No I'm not religiously traumatized and that's why I "lost faith" I don't want any of those. I lost faith because I love facts, and I simply didn't like the idea of the religion not being based on anything that I could see to be proven factual. You can argue I stopped going to church because it made me uncomfortable but it wasn't the reason I stopped beleiving.
Even if I disagree strongly with some of you, which I will, it is impossible to live and not disagree strongly. Some of these disagreements may lead me to not really like you but I must respect your personal opinion so long as that opinion isn't forced unto others. Even if you are forcing it I'm not gonna argue about that under this post. I am asking for your opinions regardless if I agree or not so I cannot get mad when you give them.
The abortion and lgbt question I know is going to make a lot of people devicive. I don't like pro lifers or anti lgbtq people but just because I don't like them doesn't mean I shouldn't learn from or try to better understand them. Understanding gives me self peace and even is someone here beleives I shouldn't be trans if they're honest about it and explain it's easier to move on than constantly wondering why. I prefer that to saying you aren't against me being trans but constantly trying to make me doubt being trans or detranstition. You obviously aren't okay with it. Just say it and we can all move on.
Reddit may auto delete some comments unfortunately because of anti lgbtq sayings or opinions. I want to hear them so if it gets deleted dm me and I'll try to respond. Answer here if you can it's easier to keep track of but if you have a lot of questions for me you can DM me as well.
This once again is mainly aimed at christianity but if you are of a different religion and find some of these questions pop out at you let me know about your religion! It makes it easier to respect and understand others if I know all of what's out there :).
Once again please don't try to convert me. Give me facts and your opinion if those facts/ opinions change my mind so be it but please no "you must find god in your heart" or " listen to the word of God" that stuff isn't going to change my mind or forward the discussion. I live in georgia. I hear that all the time and if a church lady at my door can't convert me with those words, you will not be able to convert me with the same words over text.
I am once again not trying to convert you. My beleifs are that differencing beleifs are essential for us to move forward as a society even if some of those beleifs are uncomfortable.
Don't be malitious, I'm not trying to diss your religion and I'll try and word responses so it doesn't come off that way I'm not trying to change your beleif but understand and offer my opinion. If my opinion changes your beleif so be it but I will not be the guy to go "well I didn't see jesus walk on water so it didn't happen" I cannot prove or disprove your god or beleifs if they are supernatural. I can't do that so it just makes the discussion go circular and lead nowhere. The only argument I will make is if information you give me is false in which I will dispute it and offer citation of where I got my information which you are free to criticize!
I'm not gonna tell you your opinion is wrong but if you say "gay guys are rapists" I will dispute that. You can have the opinion that you don't like gay guys, you can't spread false information. That's just manipulative and shapes other people's opinions based on the same false information which means they aren't making choices based on reality but your reality.
Since age is important and sex too for some people regarding these issues I am 17, I am a transgender male, I am gay.
Thank you in advance for sharing and helping me better myself and understand. It really does mean alot no matter how hard the pill may be to swallow.

2020.09.16 18:50 Hibernatus50 [Report] 7 days in Northern Italy.

A while ago I made a post with a title like "7-10 days trip in Northern Italy". Here's my report. Be prepared, it's long. I'll start with what I saw and did, then will do a small part on my mood and mental health during th e trip.
First, thank you all for the advices. I'm still in the trip, but have only one day left which will be for chilling and no intense visiting.
Also, it's Italy. It's always a good idea to go to Italy.
My initial plan was : Milan - Lake como - Bergamo - Lake Garda - Lake iseo.

MILAN

I started with 2 days in Milan. I have friends there, so it was an obvious staring point. My Italian friends there don't like the city, but I quite enjoyed it. I have to admit that for once, the covid situation is making things better as there are less tourists, and hotel prices are lower. I stayed at the hotel Flora near the central station. 55€/night. Not good, not bad. OK for solo. I really enjoyed the city. The architecture, the different neighbourhoods, the people,... Really loved it (my feet after 26km,a bit less). I saw the Duomo of course, which was pretty much empty. Really impressing, and the galleries near it as well. I did pretty much all the Da Vinci museums / places, except the church with the last supper, as it was closed for the afternoon (?!). I also did a lot of churches, parks, places, the Milan University (where you can have beers every night right in front the beautiful main building), etc. I spent the last evening in the navigli area, with a beautiful sunset over the river and the colorfull bars and restaurants. I then moved to Lake Como.

LAKE COMO

I had booked 2 nights in Bellagio, at the hotel Fioroni. Around 65€/night, family run. Really nice place, had a double room for myself with a tiny balcony, absolutely stunning view on the mountains, could see a bit of the lake on my left. Just imagine, waking up, having the sunrise on the yellow houses and the lush green mountains, with an absolute silence. Paradise. Good breakfast too and free parking. 15 minutes walk from the city center, either by following the road with view on the lake, or from inside the village, which makes you arrive on the other side of bellagio. This city/village is really really great and beautiful. More tourists than in Milan though, on a Sunday evening. The Monday was totally empty. Amazing food, stunning view on the lake.
For food, try the enoteca cava turaciolo. Simple and good set of cheese and ham, but it's the wine that you go there for. I took a tester of 3 wines, 2 reds and one white. One of the red just blew my mind. Sfurzat carlo negrid. Just, wow. Waiter took the time to explain the origins, how to pour it properly, and we descussed a bit.
All the little narrow streets are super cute, and for the Instagram fans, that's where you can take a lot of the empty narrow streets pictures.
The next day, I went to visit Como. Quite nice town, about an hour drive from Bellagio. They have an hydroplane club, nice and cute city center. The Duomo is quite impressive as well, but that's for the walk on the pedestrian alongside the big villas that you go there. Simply beautiful. Makes you wish the time stops. I just stayed an one bench for 20 minutes, lookking at the opposite side of the lake, without thinking to anything. Only disturbed by a chopper bringing construction material to what i guess is the future villa of a rich person.
Then I drove to cernobbio. Equally beautiful and much more peaceful, but smaller. I also could have gone there on foot from como. I did not stayed there too long, but still enjoyed it. And, as everywhere on Lake como, the view is just splendid.
The last evening I went back to my hotel in bellagio, and I went for supper to the hotel métropole. I wish I had not. I should have checked Google before. I just saw they had the traditional fish risotto from that area. They rushed everything, I got the dish while I still had my aperitivo. Then the wine. I ordered the same whine I had the day before (the surfzat) at the enoteca. They did not serve me what I ordered. I got a low grade headache-inducing shitty wine. The fish on the plate was, I'm pretty sure, reheated in a micro wave oven. That really took my mood down. Shame because I was in a pretty good spirit by then.
At least, I could enjoy one of the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen in my life.
Anyway, I got the fuck out of there and we t back to my hotel, prepping for the next day, which was departure day to Bergamo, just for the day and spent the night in garda, on the lake of the same name.
When I woke up, I did not want to go to Bergamo. I was just too in harmony with the lake como, and I wanted to see the villa del barbianello, which I could not visit before as it was closed on Mondays. So I figured, let's go to varena, and take a boat trip from there.
The drive was really enjoyable, loads of little cute villages.
When I arrived in varenna, I was instantly charmed by the place. This is the typical lakeshore village, absolutely stunning, cute, loving, insert any adjective here. I absolutely love the place. Made me think I want to spend my retirement there.
As the streets are a bit narrow, not many tourists still felt like a bit more than in the other places. But it's as idealistic as you could expect.
Got a pizza at the bar il molo. Fairly priced, and OK for quality. Spirits are cheap too. The ice cream was ginormous and cheap.
In the end, I did not go to the villa del barbianello, as I'd prefer spending more time in Varenna.
But still, around 3pm,i had to take the road for the 2hours drive to Garda.

LAKE GARDA

The drive to Garda (the city) was a bit less pleasant then around Lake Como, but that was expected, as it's a good chunk of highway.
Instantly, I felt like I should have started with garde then como, as the landscape is quite a downgrade. Don't get me wrong, it's also really nice and beautifully, but the scenes are less grandiose than on Lake como.
Many many more tourists there, and if the prices are much lower than on lake como, the quality is too. The bars are more rushed. Hotel is meh.
I'm not feeling confortable here. I want to leave. I'm writing these lines "enjoying" a spritz on the harbor.
One think that is really nice, is the sunset. There a small cliff going down slowly to the water surface and the sun drops being it, showing you wonderful colors and a stunning view. Can't complain about that at all.
I've been trying to go to a restaurant two times, but it seems like they don't like solo travellers. That pissed me off more than I'd care to say, because I really wanted to go there.
Tomorrow will be driving to lake iseo, a hotel in iseo and a short night before going to the airport around 5m to come back to my no-so-sweet Belgium.

MENTAL HEALTH

first of all, I'm not what we can say a very stable person. I have my moods, and they can change quite quickly. That being said, I'm still quite rational or I'm trying to be.
If you've read what i wrote before, you've deduced that everything was going pretty well until that first disgusting restaurant in Bellagio. That started to bring my spirit down. But I spoke to friends through fb and it went OK.
Globally, I chilled while I Was visiting everything, stopped when I wanted to stop, ignored what I wanted to ignored, and just did wathever I wanted without caring for anything or anyone. This is a wonderful feeling.
I did not go into deep thoughts. Just left a blank in my brain. Looking to nature or whatever was in front of me, and to nothing else.
Basic rule, don't look at your emails. Don't look at the news. Cut yourself from everything. I've partially failed at that for the news. But did not checked my mails.
Now, in garda, my mood is really down. I just want to be over with this place. Not enjoying it at all. I went to sirmione today, but Barelystayed 2h,to see and go.
Yesterday evening I just took spritz on spritz, not being drunk, but just to occupy my mind. Which is not good. I told my self I'd not do that today... Well, I've just finished my second one. But I'll go for food now and not take alcohol.
I just don't know what to think, or how to improve my frequent depressed mood.
One think that cheers me up for after the trip though, is that through a friend we have in comon, we'll go to a concert with a girl a fancy. (My friend will be there too, but that's totally ok).
Now the sun Is slowly going down, revealing a beautiful scene, and that's cool.

CONCLUSIONS

some places were lovely, others stunning, others not so much. But overall a quite nice stay.
I guess I have to work a bit more on my mindset and how to improve it to enjoy more the time I spend alone, and go over micro setbacks more easily.
I haven't met anyone, and did not desire too, so that's cool.
I've probably left things aside, so feel free to ask any questions.
Cheers.
Edit : here's the report for the last 1.5 days.
So last day I went to the lake iseo, as it was planned originally and I've often seen online that it's sort of a hidden gem.
It is.
There an island (actually, 3 islands) in the lake, one being much more massive than the others (like it is 9km circonference). It's quite lovely, and the water is really clear. Haven't seen anyone swimming though. I went on the island with the ferry from sulzano. 5.5€ for a return ticket, takes 5 minutes to go to the other side. Runs every 20 min. Monte Isola, the big island, is really lovely. Nice colors, quite chill. Again, September + covid made it quite empty of tourists, just a few here and there.
I did not do the whole tour of the island, nor the climb up the castle. I was following my feet, and they brought me halfway up, then wanted to go back down and have a beer, enjoy the view and the very warm weather.
I spent in total something like 2h there, but it's worth spending more. Apparently in June and July they place some floating paths between the islands, so you don't have to take the boat. They were not installed anymore yesterday.
After taking the ferry back to sulzano, I went to the charming little village of Iseo, where I had booked my last hotel. Hotel ambra, 65€/night. Quite nice actually. Had to wake up at 4.30 to gety plane in milano, and they offered early check out and breakfast by the on duty person for the night. Really appreciated.
Iseo itself looks quite touristic, but the inside has some old style Italian feelings, which I always like.
Just spent the evening looking at the lake, got a nice (big!) ham cuts as starter and a pizza as main, to properly end up my Italian stay (had the pasta yesterday at the bussola restaurant in Garda).
Now, enjoying an iced coffee at the only Starbucks in Italy at milano malpenza Airport, waiting for my flight.
There you go, report complete.
Cheers x2.

2020.09.15 23:58 F350-dieselTruck2013 Po401 EGR Check Engine alert!

I have a 2013 F350 6.7. I love this truck. However I think I may have found the end of the line. This is my 4th generation ford diesel. This motor looks nothing like my original, I missed the 6.0 years. I think this motor with all the regulation crap is going to be my downfall.
I am a conservative driver, and keep my trucks about 12 years or about 100k miles. not a lot of driving, and all easygoing. Just love the diesels. This diesel at 38k, gave the dreaded check engine. I have a tester, and it said P0401. I have found out that this motor requires getting beat up on a bit to burn off the collected carbon crap. I have now started the Cetane additive per tankful from ford.
I really don't want to get into the remove all the factory emissions stuff, cause I like to use the ford part and don't really have a lot of truck problems, so the dealer is usually my repair option. Can you guys out there give me a heads up on an EGR repair? I expect dealer, but don't want to get hosed. Any advice on driving or additive? I have started to get on it a lot more, and enjoying it. But we by these motors for 100k+ miles, and most beat the crap out of them. This is a joke at 38K that I am having issues at 38k. The years are what puts me out of warranty, so the dealer wins it seems.
What do you guys got for advice?

2020.09.15 00:10 hotcoldfear123 Please advice me on DAS, Reddit!

Hey guys!
Just passed my theory test today - whoop! Now I want to do my Mod 1 and 2 soon (based in Aldershot, Hampshire) and I'm looking at a couple options: £557 for a 2 days training plus 2 days for test from 1st Gear Motorcycle Training as opposed to a flat fee of £105 for half a day/£165 full day not including test fees from Ridesure Training. I want your advice on which I should pick, bearing in mind that I want to keep costs low.
Now some background info so you can assess better: I have begun riding in June 2020, picking up a 09 YBR for £1100 at 22,000 miles from a dealership and now am sitting on about 27,000 miles. I use the bike for pizza delivery currently and rack up a lot of miles everyday, I perform most of the manoeuvres (especially the swerve/footless u-turn/slow ride) required to pass Mod 1 on a daily basis and could probably pass Mod 2 too if I know the specifications/what tester is looking for. I ride for an income, yes but it's just temporarily until I find something else and I love riding a lot and daydream about riding a Yamaha R6 from time to time (...everyday).
Anyways, if this was for my A1 licence, I wouldn't bother with the whole training day fuss but I want a full licence so.. In theory I could get my A licence for £300 with Bikesure (2 half days with test fees) which is ideal but I'm unsure whether I'm being too confident in my abilities and that riding a big bike, something like the MT-07 will have substantially different physics & feel vs a YBR that I can't just get on and go, and that I should at the minimum take up a day of training or even 2.
Probably overthinking it a bit for £200 give or take but that's £200 that could otherwise go towards a R6 purchase & as a pizza boy I don't make a lot even with 60 hr weeks- yes I know a R6 as a 2nd bike after the YBR is very questionable but this advice I saw from someone on this sub recently rings true with me: Get the bike that you want not the cheap/"compromise bike" cause you'll still yearn for that original bike afterwards.
Btw happy to give advice on theory to anyone looking to do it soon. Also feel free to throw some recommendations for centres nearby you've used before if you're close to me.
Sorry if this all was a bit of a ramble to ask a relatively simple question.
TL;DR dumb redditor wants to ride a 600cc sport bike after just 3 months of riding with a 125cc and wants to cut costs on the DAS fees.

i think that moonton should add a proper player report system that can allow you to report others outside of matches , players are becoming more toxic , and more cheaters are showing up , i think there should be a reporting system we can do outside of matches that would help us report more in depth about a player , be more specific about their actions , in and out of matches , also maybe add a feature to show screenshots of what the player had done / proper proof .

"Minshitar has so much potential as a Tank or Tank/Support. The fighter role just doesn't suit him, his wave clear isn't good, his early game damage is crap, he can't clear jungle fast and his late game sustane is decent and damage is fine too but not good enough. So just make him a Tank/Support. Improve his passive maybe? Skill 1 and Skill 2 are good, just need a few changes in his ultimate, increase the AoE or increase the slow (or both), increase the defence stats he gets inside his ultimate and add a heal whenever units/soldiers of his ultimate hit an enemy."
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. Minsitthar is part of the list of heroes we will be adjusting. Please wait patiently for the day he becomes strong again.

"Give belerick's passive a heal for 1% of max/lost hp whenever it triggers,change the% chance to trigger for a 0,7s cooldown and increase his mana regen.
Give alice some physical defense and magical resistance from her passive now that she's partially a tank, maybe 3 every 10 stacks.
Increase the traveling speed of vexana's first skill by 15%, increase the radius of her second skill by 10% and reduce its mana cost.
Make enemies currently chained to faramis deal 10-15% less damage."

:the second eudora skill could take longer or give her an acceleration to escape
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider increasing the casting speed of Eudora's Ultimate.
Feedback:
Hello ML I liked the hero Eudora since I start this game I try the new test project update and play the new Eudora she is great but I think there is something not right about the second skill the attack area is so short than before I see this is a problem since she is a mage and have nothing else to protect her except this stun if she gets so close hard for her to escape then why the hole changes if she still has the same problem I like playing Eudora even before the changes so I ask you to look again at the second skill form my opinion, I think you should make the area attack longer thank you. Also, the way she walks now is so weird I hope you return the old one I think she has long hands. Thank you
Reply: Previously, the targeted stun has a very long range that makes it hard for the enemy to respond.
The current range is based on the data from advanced server, while considering the range of other similar heroes.
Feedback:
Miya's Revamped attack speed is too overpowered. Reduce its passive to 4% gain.
Reply: We have plans to adjust the attack speed of Miya, but not necessarily adjust the passive.
Feedback:
Hey and thank you for inviting me to project 'next' test! I'm enjoying the new stuff but i would like to suggest somethings:
Alucard: is indeed a good hero in team fights however in solo he's skill dmg with the help of his passive are very bursty and can easily kill enemies without giving them a chance to react since he gets a lot of lifesteal i suggest to reduce his dmg on early levels and to reduce the rang of the next basic attack after using a skill bye a bit and to add an interesting thing to his 2nd skill since cc is very important in team fight because what about makeing some demon smoke after he uses his 2nd skill and after a delay enemies will be immobilized . So he could be more effective in team fight because cc is very important.
saber: he's revamp is very impressive and he's amazing at everything however his skill have enough dmg to melt enemies squishy heroes but his passive reduce a lot of enemies physical defense and faster since his first skill have 5 swards now which could be a trouble for tank user and besides that saber's teammates can get advantage of his passive against enemies to balance that reduce his passive physical defense reduced from 7 to 5 which means 25 points of physical defense Lowered which is good for none tank heroes
Miya: her 2nd skill is hard to use since it have a long delay and enemies can walk away . Miya doesn't have that much advantage of using that skill since the maximum rang cant cover that much area.so how about making miya able to move/walk while using that skill it would be much better to give her an advantage and in exchange for balance remove the slow effect after immobilize
Zilong: to be honest I'm a bit disappointed with zilong's revamp he's almost the same so what about taking two steps forward and trying something more unique like what about making him a none mana hero? since his skills are a bit weak and he depends on basic attack dmg but if you wanna add something cool to him what about making his ultimate reduce dmg taking so he would have a balanced survivability? and to give him more physical damage for his basic attack to make him more effective"
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. We will adjust the heroes based on the data from advance server.
Feedback:
The new revamp of heroes was definitely awesome! But it would be much better if all the original heroes including Cyclops, Vexana, Lapu, etc. Will also be revamped so that there will be various heroes to choose from and more excitement in new rotations! Let's make use of what we have instead of keep on adding heroes :)
Reply: We have such plans in place. Please stay tuned!
Feedback:
:I suggest to lower the damage of the new Miya because her damage is massive if you compare it to Granger whose like an assassin,she has a almost full offense.But overall,good job moonton great revamp I hope that the revamped heroes will become meta.Thank you for giving me a tester to test the new heroes.That's all thank you!
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider making adjustments based on the in-game data. For now, we would like to see how the new Miya will perform.
Feedback:
Hello Mlbb,
Today I tested the new Alucard for the N.E.X.T project. I really love his new design, his second skill looks a lot nicer like that. But, I preferred the old design of his first skill with the seal on the floor. Now I find that Alucard looks like Ling, The only problem is that he is very strong and he would need a nerf:
  • increase the cooldown of his first and second skills
  • reduce the range of his ulti
  • reduce his life theft
Thank you for taking the time to read my suggestions and I hope they will be heard. Have a good day.
Reply: Thank you for your reaching out to us, your feedback is well-received and appreciated. We will adjust him based on the data from advance server.
Feedback:
Mia has become very weak, she cannot even kill 1 on 1, because there is no def at all, and the damage has decreased. There is also a wish for Saber - make 1 skill, so that when you press it again, you can pull the surekens back to you, this will also improve the gameplay
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. The damage of revamped Miya is reduced when the passive is not stacked. However, the damage is largely increased when the passive is fully stacked. For revamped Saber, learning how to maximise the damage from recalling his flying blades is the fundamental playing style. I believe you will uncover the heroes' potential as you practice with them.
Feedback:
Hi Thanks for invite me for project next test .This project next revamps are good for me the best things I like are Alucard ultimate and Zilong ultimate. Now their ultimates are more smoothly and Alucard skill 1 is more damage and new miya is become second Claude and will be one of best marksman.But I think Alucard skills animations are not very well (I test with viscount skin)and saber skill need more damage .Please make sure game ux system get more for more smoothly gameplay and lack of lagging.
Thanks for bring us Mobiles legends bang bang😊😊😊. (sorry for my bad English)
Reply: Yep! The movements of various skins are still being adjusted.
Feedback:

Thank you have a nice day hopefully better then the day i have today playing this NONSENSE CHESS!
Reply: Thank you for your feedback regarding Magic Chess. We will discuss this issue and hopefully provide players with the best Magic Chess experience.
Feedback:
The magic chess update sucks! There is no balance, again the same problem with super-strong combinations that everyone collects and there is no way to implement an interesting combination of heroes. No variety, boring. The drops of heroes in shops are too random. And the game is like pure randomness, no matter how much you try, it all depends on how the store decides. I will pray to the store and go play, maybe he will be supportive this time!

Please change the basic attack of protti. I suggest that make his basic attack like benedetta wherein it hold the basic attack button and charge it. It was may better to protti if his basic attack is like that. Its difficult during team fight to attack opponent because sometimes it was so slow. And assasins will easily kill this new hero. By basic attack like benedetta protti will have a higher chance to commit in teamfight or even he is in solo lane
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. Slow attack speed is the signature of Protti. However, we will further optimise the game play experience of using him.

I suggest that you should put synergies in 5 versus 5 battles. And also for the items in battle, put some new features where you can upgrade the items to make heroes unpredictable and less boring to use so that meta won't matter anymore so even non meta heroes will be often used also in ranked games
Reply: Yes. We can add this as an Easter Egg.

Reasons sea halberd sucks:
  1. Not every physical hero can make good use of the 25% attack speed
  2. The antiheal only procs on basic attacks unlike Necklace of Durance so it has worse spread
  3. It costs too much for what it gives. +80 physical attack and +25% attack speed for 2350 gold. Compare this to necklace which is 2110 gold and gives +65 magic power, +10% cd reduction, and +10% magic lifesteal. Yes you can buy deadly blade first for the antiheal in the early game and finish halberd later but it doesn't mean that the halberd stats are good enough especially for the price.
Buff suggestion
  1. Reduce sea halberd full price to 2100-2200 gold
  2. Increase antiheal duration from 3s to 5s for both deadly blade and sea halberd. Since it cannot be spread on multiple targets using skills like necklace, it should at least last longer since it's single target.
  3. Reduced deadly blade price to 1000 gold and adjust the crafting price of sea halberd accordingly
OPTIONAL buff if price is not reduced : Add +15 physical penetration, an additional stat that's useful for most physical heroes. If you won't lower the price then adding this will at least make it more worth it"
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. This item is intended for auto attack based heroes to equip. That is why this item also provides some attack speed stats for these heroes. As this item largely counters all heal and shield based heroes, we would not want it to have the same damage as other damage items of the same price. However, the antiheal effect is relatively weaker than Necklace of Durance. We will consider making adjustments to improve its passive effect.
Feedback:
I would like the devs to censor the words "nazi" and "Hitler". Every 10th game (I'm from Germany and have the flag ingame) I'm getting called a nazi just because some people are waaayyy too toxic. It's bugging me for the past 3 years and still nothing happened.
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. We're very sorry to hear that you experienced such harassment. We will collect and censor these words as soon as possible.

Devs should really focus nerfing this strategy instead of just nerfing the heroes used in this strategy. Nerfing claude, karrie, kimmy and granger has done a great impact in this strategy, but there are other heroes capable of using this strategy, fighters especially. This strategy is fun for ranking up but it kinda feels boring because that's making the game just like MMORPG where the whole team goes to one lane and fight with the enemies most of the time instead of a MOBA... Devs should really nerf the strategy instead of the heroes used, considering u have so many heroes in this game, after nerfing one there are always more options who can be used as a hyper carry, let's not even talk about the old hero revamps yet. Even if you nerf the current fighters being used as a hyper carry, at that time those revamped heroes will be another alternative and this cycle just goes on and on. Many people might not like nerfing roam item but the whole point is to elimante hyper. Please nerf roam's sharing gold duration from 9 minutes to lesser, in such a way that the tank users will not be affected but carry will be affected. The only way you can eliminate this strategy is do an impactful nerf, remove lithowanderer or revert the old buff system. Ever since the release of two buffs, the game has not been balanced for quite some time.
The mage meta long time ago where Esme Lunox Harith were top picks have more fun compared to now, at least not that boring. Devs are less likely to revert the 2 buff system, but devs please really eliminate this strategy entirely.
MMs now can be late game heroes like what they are supposed to be, but still the enemies can play hyper fighters which make you stand no chance to drag late game. MMs are greatly affected by this update."
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. We would not like to see the game having only one strategy. We are in the midst of making battlefield adjustments and hope this will introduce more strategies to the game. These adjustments will be implemented in the next season update. We will also continue to observe the strategies used and collect feedback regarding the gameplay to make necessary adjustments.
Feedback:
An option aside from mmr,local and world rank. To be able to display current season WR instead of just overall WR or both. I can have a 90% WR of a hero in the current season but 51% in overall matches which doesn't really reflect how good im with the said hero currently

This may be very minor, but please work on your hero randomization in brawl mode. I got Yu Zhong 4 games in a row, and the other choices I simply did not know how to use. I kept losing because I suck at using Yu Zhong, though I really tried holding out, and my teammates all hated me. I know I'll basically have to practice more, and I have no problem with that. I have zero background in games like MLBB, and I'm at Master rank so I'm really just starting out. I just feel like I wasn't given enough options
Reply: Brawl mode randomly picks heroes from the players' hero pool and free heroes available. The chances of getting the same hero multiple times will reduce if the player purchases more heroes.

Hi Moontoon,
I just checked out Barats new ultimate skill. The first thing that comes in my mind is ""Tham Kench"". His skill looks almost similar to one of the League of Legends (LoL) hero called Tham Kench, especially the part when Barats use his tongue to devour enemies. Tham Kench also does the same thing. Even though I'm MLBB fan. I must agree with them that the skill is copied and no originality. You need to modify/change it ASAP before LoL fan bash you. Here my suggestion for his ultimate.
-Instead of use tongue to devour enemy. Barats lock and charge towards enemy and devour him/her. Then give Barats movement speed bonus which allow him to escape. -Duration of digestion depends on Barats current size -Damage also depends on Barats size -After digestion, restore Barats health. If enemy not die yet, then spit it
Thats all for my feedback and critiques
Regards, MLBB Fan

khaleed is to much, he can damage all enemies and tank their damage im suggesting that it should be nerfed, he can 1 shot enemies and escape like nothing happen and the cooldown is very low
Reply: Khaleed has many strengths such as high damage, sustain and tankiness. However, he can still be beaten.
His first skill requires it to hit every time to maximise the damage. His second skill can be cancelled by crowd control. Players can focus on him with a crowd control skill in order to easily kill him.
We will continue to observe the performance of the hero, and make necessary adjustments based on in-game statistics and players' feedback.

I would like for mlbb to add a custom emblem setting features while in draft pick in ranked or when picking hero in classic, what I mean is you can custom your own emblem while picking hero and not just in a lobby. This will make it easier for player to set up their emblem base on the situation that they are gonna face. This is because some player will not have a right emblem and talent that are suitable for the hero that they pick, and they can't change the emblem because it can only change in lobby. So by adding this feature, player will have a great opportunity to adjust their situation. My other suggestion is that you can remove the emblem page to make it more balance since you can already change the emblem while selecting hero.

1st : miya's passive should change depending on the color of her skills effects. Example : Suzuhime should be pink not blue.
2nd : Eudora conductor effects colors should be according also to the effect of the skin. Her ultimate wwith the conducter effect is a little bit slow so i think you should make it a little bit faster.
3rd: Saber is a little bit powerful in late game. You should make the skin effect better because the legend skin and epic skinbof saber is like the basic skin.
4th: The new Alucard is balance. You should also make the skin of him better because it looks like the basic skin also.
5th: Layla is super weak in the early game, she could be easily kill by a fighter, mage, and assasin. I think you should improve her skill to make her easily able to escape to cc skills of meta heroes right
6th: Zilong is super weak in both early game and late game you she could be easily killed you should improve his 1st skill and ulti.
Hope you do well.

In my opinion, AI is unuseful, because even when he is trying to help he only interrupted the rest of the team. An iteresting solution would be the command bar for bots, where we could select what the bot should do like stay in base, defend the tower or attack. Awards in Heavenly Tasks don't motivate players to do them. In my opinion for the awards in these tasks should be mechanism like in the Lucky Spin. I mean in the prize pool should be statues and skins that are hard to get and things that helps us to take part in lottery. The prize pool should be changed every month. Nice for the players would be a chance to play more in the Arcade Mode. In my opinion for one season should be 3 modes. That will encourage new players.

  1. We will review this.
  2. This is to cater for players who like to play AI games. Therefore, we will not make changes.

About Zilong:
I noticed two strange behaviours
  1. When Zilong has the Golden Staff the item's Passiv Unique-Endless Strike makes Zilong trigger the new passive after 2 strikes instead of 3.
  2. When Zilong gets 14% of Cooldown Reduction (or more) the passive's new healing effect triggers 2 times instead of one.
The new healing effect of Zilong doesn't look like much of a help, since Zilong profit more on speed and critical. And in case you build it up with heavy atrack damage the amount if healing doesn't compensate at all, making him totally unsustainable. The healing effect in the mid/late game makes almost no difference on a big scale. I think that if the healing would work with some kind of level-scaling System, or depending on some HP% of the enemy being gutted, that would be more helpful.
Reply: Hey there! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will review this.
Feedback:
I suggest adding an equipment for attack range. It will be very useful on Marksman charaters because some heroes are marksman but in very short range making them very easy target to assasins during team fight.
I suggest fair matchmaking for example match players to there level players or maybe in accordance to their emblems level but still depends on their ranks.
Reply: Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider this when we release new items. However, we are now focused on optimising the performance of each item.
Feedback:
I have encountered an issue with the new Eudora. Whenever I use the Elite Skin “Christmas Carnival”, it only stays in one pose. I would like you guys to fix this as it is quite bothersome.
Reply: We will require more information and screenshots in order to provide a fix for this issue.
Feedback:
First of all, I was happy with most of the revamped heroes. I do have some suggestions regarding some of the heroes.
I just feel like Zilong’s new passive is somewhat inferior to the old one. I would highly suggest to change the damage output for that one.
Next is for Miya. Her damage output in the late game is just too much. I’m not saying that you guys should decrease it but given some extra mobility from the ult, and the new 2nd skill makes her a marksman that can do a turnaround kill which is somewhat not amusing.
Lastly is for the battlefield. I have experienced a problem in the map “Celestial Palace” which the turrets appear as orbs when I have downloaded all of the resources.
That is all THANK YOU!!"
Reply: Zilong: Regarding the damage of Zilong, we will make adjustments in the upcoming patch.
Miya: We will slightly reduce her late game damage.
Battlefield: We will review this.

2020.09.13 06:48 Rusty_Pirate_Hook Please Devs, for the longevity of this game...

Please stick to your original vision for this game.
The game feels really really good for something that just came out. Its fun in every way possible and every fight feels fresh and never repetitive. I've been hooked playing non-stop.
Please trust your original vision and don't give in to the masses on the forums, on reddit or wherever it is asking for change of classes or items or whatever it is.
Sure, there is some really good constructive feedback, which is awesome, and which I'm sure a lot had come from the Alpha and Beta testers. But there has already been some whining about certain classes and such going on and it kind of worries me for some reason.
I hope this game stays on its current path and is updated with simple changes like bug fixes, some more progression systems, a battle pass (I would love to throw some money at this game) and other things like that which do not change the game too much in a way.
Another popular game, Fortnite, though some may hate it, started out pretty damn fun in the first seasons and then quickly turned to shit with the constant addition of new features and things they kept whipping up update after update. Ultimately ruining the game for myself and everyone I knew who enjoyed it.
Keep doing what you're doing. The game is great. And you guys are doing a great job communicating.

2020.09.12 15:11 arthurofbabylon I built a new feature in Minimal Notes called Publish as Website – this is why I’m so excited about it.

Hi apple – I originally built Minimal Notes because my dream writing app just did not exist. So every feature that lands in Minimal originates from a real need, something particular (maybe a little odd), and something that isn’t adequately being served by existing notes apps.
So here’s the story behind Publish as Website, Minimal’s latest feature.
I wanted an easy way to share essays and little articles that I write. Yes, I could copy/paste and publish it to Medium or send a few emails, but I really just wanted to take my note, convert it to a website exactly as it is, and share it with the people that I want to connect with. Think of it as bringing a blogging tool inside of a notes app, without adding any complexity or ugliness.
So now that it’s live, Minimal reduced the number of taps required to publish from tens or hundreds to like, 2 taps. (Okay, technically 3 taps.) Boom, boom, it’s published, here’s the website. And the websites are beautiful – here’s an example: mnml.ly/12bqqpen

How it works

To publish, open a note > tap the action button in the top-right corner > select “Publish as Website.” The website will go live in microseconds.
As you edit your note, the website automatically updates.
To remove the website, just delete the note or tap “Unpublish.”

Inspiration

I love carrd.co – I use it to create just about every website: it’s easy, fun, and beautiful. And it occurred to me that this kind of workflow should exist for articles, essays, thoughts, poems, etcetera. Minimize taps, maximize beauty. Make expression easy.
I also love beautiful typography. Avenir Next is a wonderful typeface (really, all of these hyper round sans serifs are like 😍🥰), off-white and dark-dark-gray are such soothing colors, and ample empty space is probably the best thing ever. And to have these websites be so extremely readable (think: max line width of some 65 characters or so) is just cool.
The one other piece of inspiration – strange as it might sound – is software documentation. I love the big headers, short paragraphs separated by double returns, hyper-pragmatic design.

How I built it

I’m good at iOS development, and bad at everything else. To get Publish as Website working, these are the technologies I learned or improved at ->
I spent about 2 weeks chewing over the Publish as Website project – reading articles, chatting with friends, drawing ideas, and going for walks and drinking Negronis. Taking a birds’ eye view over the whole concept.
Then I broke it up into micro tasks that I was confident could be completed in 1-2 days each. I’ve noticed that a subsystem in software can be perfect if it can be built in a single day. Basically, that’s the amount of time where the brain can hold on to absolutely every detail. After a day of intensity details get lost, so compartmentalizing is super useful, allowing for elegant micro-systems to coalesce into a hopefully-elegant super-system.
Then I started with the hardest parts, and got to work, session after session, until the whole thing was built.
——
Minimal is live in a few countries – go to minimal.app and see if the smart banner shows up at the top.
In other countries, Minimal is in private beta and you can download for free using Apple's TestFlight. Once launching publicly, I plan to charge a small monthly or annual fee after a super long free trial. However beta testers will continue to have unlimited access to everything, totally free. You can lock in your free access and begin contributing to Minimal’s roadmap by visiting minimal.app and joining the beta.
Thanks, everyone!

2020.09.12 01:08 Significant_Eye_4259 Recommendations for retaining legal counsel?

Hi folks. I hope everybody is well and staying healthy! I just moved to NB about 2 months ago, and I love the town, but I'm honestly having a lot of issues with my landlord.
The short version: My landlord has refused to complete basic repairs on my HVAC, to the point that it has been unusable (it's been hot!). I'm at the end of my rope and at this point it seems like my only option is going to involve litigation of some sort. But I'm having trouble finding a lawyer that will deal with this sort of issue in the area, or they want money before they'll even tell me if they could help me. If anybody knows one or even has suggestions/advice, I'm all ears. Somebody suggested Austin Tenants Council and Rio Grande Legal Aid, and they've been unhelpful tbh, I'm sure they're overwhelmed with other cases right now.
The long version: I'm an immigrant and just moved here, I was originally in Austin but through exploration I fell in love with New Braunfels. I rented this house and love love love the neighborhood as well, but once I moved in and spent some time, I started to get a really bad allergic reaction. I attempted to mitigate this myself with high end air filters and a $300 air purifier in every room, without much success. I went up into the attic and discovered that there were holes in the ducting, and an insane amount of dust. So my air filters weren't really doing much anyway.
I contacted my landlord and brought this up. She initially denied any issue even after I sent photos, but eventually agreed to have a tech come out. This was rescheduled a number of times, and then she wound up just sending out her husband. I took issue with this, because ideally I'd like an actual HVAC tech to work on it. She then rescheduled again with her HVAC tech.
When the HVAC tech came out, he arrived in his personal vehicle with his wife in the car. He went into the attic, pulled a big hunk of rotting moldy insulation from the inside of the AC. I repeatedly had to tell him not to just leave it on the floor and to please stop stepping on lines.
He agreed that it needs to be cleaned, and informed my landlord, who scheduled a company to come out and do it. The following week everything was ten times worse, I got physically ill just from being in the house and my neighbor was even kind enough to let me sleep over.
When the duct cleaning company arrived, they discovered that when the guy had been up there last week he had pulled a gas line loose and caused a leak so that explains me getting sick all week, yay!
I'll be honest and say this scared the shit out of me. Between this and her electrician almost burning my house down, I have no trust whatsoever in her selection of workers.
She now refuses to reschedule the people to clean the ducts. She instead wants to have yet another one of her workers test for air quality issues, which seems redundant. With as shady as she's been thus far, I suspect this air quality tester is just going to pocket a few bucks and sign a report saying everything is fine.
Like I said, I'm at the end of my rope. I've invested so much time, effort, money, and missed so much work. I had to buy everything, such as furniture, and appliances, thinking I was settling into a new home. I'm now short on cash, and don't know where to turn next. Any advice on what my recourse could be is more than welcome.
Thanks folks, I hope everybody has a great weekend.

2020.09.07 16:29 jptasznik Deciding to Buy VertDesk V3 base

tl;dr; After looking all over the internet for standing desk bases for my DIY project I narrowed it to UpLift Desk V2 Commercial, iMovR Lander, and BTOD VertDesk V3. I ultimately decided to buy the VertDesk V3 and am waiting for it to be delivered.
I am creating this post to record my research and shopping experience and eventually a review of the BTOD.com VertDesk V3 base once it arrives. I will likely record a video of the assembly process and a review of the product itself.
First of all, I have been looking into standing desk bases on and off for months now.
I had access to standing desks at my office in Detroit Michigan where I worked until March 2020 when the pandemic hit and was moved to working remote 100% of the time.
Since early March I have been using a beautiful solid black walnut desk built by my dad over 20 years ago. It is 30” tall, 55” wide, and 30” deep. I have two 24” Dell monitors, Dell dock, Dell laptop, a keyboard, mouse and then a bunch of misc. stuff (Clutter). I also made the wise choice to buy a GTRacing Gaming chair in mid-March, which has made this setup totally usable for all this time.
I spent the majority of my 20+ year career working in an office, I didn’t realize how much time I spent not at my desk. There are so many breaks and times when I am not sitting at my desk. I walk over to colleagues’ desks for discussions, one on one mentoring, meeting rooms, just taking a break and walking around the office with go workers to move. I only had access to a standing desk for 6 months since moving to my current employer mid 2019. The standing desks at work are nice, but not great. Part of my problem was that I never had an assigned desk for more than a few weeks due to there not being enough desks for all the workers and I am in role where it was deemed less important for me to have a dedicated desk, I am a Software Architect. So, what that means is I am less likely than the Software engineers I work with to spend my time at a desk. Now that the pandemic hit, and I am working remote 100% of the time, I am at my desk all day. No travel time to meetings, no walking over and standing with engineers to discuss solutions to problems. No water cooler talk to walk to…we do have chat rooms where we have virtual water cooler talks, but no movement or standing.
My Requirements:
  1. Base only without a tabletop
  2. Be able to be incorporated into my existing desk (Fit inside the 50” x 25” apron) – This is totally non-negotiable at this point. I love the look of desk my dad built but want to be able to raise it up. This may look a bit strange having a 4-legged desk with an apron and then a lift desk underneath it. I am ok with that look as I do not have a place to put the desk otherwise and I love how rock solid it is as sitting position. I am very comfortable working at the 30” height with my gaming chairing and the keyboard at that height.
  3. Max desk height of at least 47” height - I am 6’ 1” tall and on paper it seems I should only need about 45”, but when I stand next to a wall and measure my arms at around 90 degree that is 47” - https://www.omnicalculator.com/everyday-life/standing-desk-height
  4. Strong enough to support the heavy 1” thick black Walnut 55” x 30” top, my two 24” monitors and all the rest of the gear, plus my occasional leaning
  5. Stable at high heights, minimal wobble (side to side) and rocking (front to back)
  6. Have overload protection to prevent damage to the equipment if too much weight is applied.
  7. Have collision detection so all my stuff is not thrown all over if it hits my chair, desk base, etc.
  8. Have at least 2 programmable heights for one touch movement to the standing or sitting position
  9. Under $1,000 without a top
  10. Solid long warranty (10 years ideally for everything)
  11. Ideally Made in America

I will have to say that this has been an absolute nightmare process. I love Amazon, but there are so many “budget” bases on the market. I quickly realized that there were not many that met my needs for under $300. What was more irritating is to find that over those that met my requirements had very few reviews and many had horrible experiences. OK. Time to turn to google. Well now we are into a whole world of hurt. Two sites kept coming up: www.workwhilewalking.com and www.btod.com.
Both of these sites are shady in my opinion.
  1. Both are highly biased, and the reviews reflect that. They favor the products they benefit from in terms of child companies getting sales or directly from the site themselves.
  2. In a lot of cases the reviews are not in line with other independent reviews.
  3. Excessive bashing of companies they do NOT sell or have a relationship with

After lots of hard searching I found:
https://www.nytimes.com/wirecuttereviews/best-standing-desk/
This site unlike the two above covered a lot more of the desks I was looking at, but not perfect by any means. I dug through all the products referenced in the above link, even all the products that didn’t “win”.

I narrowed my selection down to the following desks:
  1. Uplift Desk V2 Commercial (Top pick)
  2. iMovR Lander (No on Wire Cutter review)
  3. VertDesk V3 (Previously tested or dismissed)

I then started searching for any reviews of the above desks.
I found numerous YouTube reviews, Reddit Reviews, and other reviews.

UpLift Desk V2 Commercial
I was really leaning heavily toward the Uplift as the quantity of reviews, favorable opinion of stability, and lots of independent reviews. It now has a 10-year warranty on everything.
Size will work with my constraints, rated highly in stability. Lots of accessories and customization.
The Uplift has lots of recent problems in terms of delivery time. Since the product is a Jiecang OEM, which is based in China, the supply chain was really disrupted during this. I have seen comments of people having months of delays. Problems with the quality. Uplift was the only one of the three that was not made in the USA to some degree, NOTE important update below in terms how where the parts come from for BTOD VertDesk V3. This concerned me with having long delays on parts, but this may still be a concern with all of them as they all have parts from around the world.

iMovR Lander base
I really wanted to love the iMovR. I love that it ships out of Michigan. I love that it is manufactured in America (Frame made by Knoll in North Carolina), Bosch Motors, Linak electronics (Linak makes parts for hospital beds, so they know how to make durable stuff). Seems to have good support – always a human on the website to chat.
Has a 10-year warranty on motors and electronics and lifetime on frame.
Having said that I don’t like that I cannot find an independent review site that had reviewed them. Only the completely biased website above, YouTube, and Reddit. I have also read less than favorable views of their response time on issues. I also am concerned about the stability of the desk given the design and that the cross bar (well really a metal support attached to the top) was an extra. If this is a crucial part of the desk it should just be included. Also, the inclusion of this cross bar meant it would not fit inside my 50” apron. I also did not like that the support person was less than honest about reviews. I asked why there were so few reviews for the lander (3 on their site), which he said was release in early 2018. This was the response: “Fairly new John yes. You'll find independent reviews on YouTube, Reddit and Trust Pilot, we don't solicit for reviews (or pay for them like many folks these days)!”
  1. This may be a half-truth at best.
  2. workwhilewalking.com reviews them and is owned by the parent company – so technically iMovR does not directly pay for them. They don’t hide this on the site.
  3. Several of the YouTube video reviews have said that the iMovR provided the desk and in one case even provided a standing desk for a giveaway through the reviewer’s channel. Did they pay for the review? Maybe not technically if all they gave was the desk, but that is far from an independent review in my book. Consumer Reports is my standard for independent reviews because they do NOT accept products for review, they buy them like everyone else.
  4. If they are giving them to some people to review why didn’t they give them to Wire Cutter to be considered in the line up? This says to me that they are worried how they will fair when compared with others. Giving a popular YouTube star a desk who has either no comparison or has a really old model that could only be seen as an improvement is a safe bet.
Finally, the iMovR Lander base was $200 more and the accessories were really high priced.

BTOD VertDesk V3 - What I ordered
Finally, the reasons I ultimately ordered the VertDesk V3 from BTOD.com on 9/6/2020 and says that is will ship between 09/28/2020 to 10/05/2020, so probably delivered mid October.
UPDATE 2: On 9/14/2020 I received an email that my ship date is now 9/16/2020. Nice to see ship date come in and NOT out as apparently has been happening to people ordering from UpLift. Cross Fingers that it arrives before the weekend.
UPDATE 3: Well 9/16/2020 came and went without tracking information. I reached out and there was a delay. As of today Friday 9/18/2020 I received my tracking information and the desk base is on its way and is currently scheduled for delivery on Sunday 9/20/2020. It still shipped 10 days earlier than the earliest original estimate and only 12 days after my order. Now for eagerly awaiting the delivery.
I was really concerned about buying this product. But several things that helped me with the decision. It was reviewed on WireCutter. What is also interesting is that the WireCutter testers agreed with the stability claims of BTOD.com biased tester. The reason they did not consider it the best was it was loud and difficult to assemble. I have watched the videos on assembly of the desk and feel confident that I can do this. I am a woodworker and home improvement guy so this assembly looks reasonable and I already know it will take some time to modify the existing desk for this project to work. The other area of concern was the loud motor. In an office setting I think this will be a concern, but for me in my own home office I accept this. They have a solid 10-year warranty. I really like the design of desk. At first, I was skeptical of a single motor design, but then I read several review sites on poorly built or designed two motor systems where one leg gets stuck and one side jams up. With the single external motor design with the rod going between the two legs this seems like a near impossibility as the connection to the gear that raises the leg would to break for this to happen. While a two-motor system will have to use special logic to ensure that the two motors move at the same speed. Another thing that I really liked was that the VertDesk Legs are welded and NOT screwed. Welds are permanent and as such will lead to very stable legs. So, the 90 degree at the top of the leg where it connects to the tabletop is welded and the bottom of the leg is welded to the foot. This means that any rocking (front to back) will be the result of the glide having play or flex in the foot, and it appears from the video they do a very good job making this tight and smooth. Then the cross bar is a solid piece of metal connected to welded attachment points. This means that there should be little room for wobble as with an adjustable width crossbar that has screws that are pressuring the two pieces of the cross bar together could become loose over time. This has downsides too, that is that the product has very specific widths. With the Uplift V2 Commercial I would be able to set the width to exactly 50” that will fit in the apron of my desk, but I had to settle for a 46.375” wide option. Since I want a really stable desk this is a fair trade off in my mind. After watching both the Uplift desk assembly instructions and the iMovR assembly there are more screws that could come loose over time or compromise the stability as both desks have lots of screws that attach the feet and tabletop supports in place. As someone over 6-foot-tall I was concerned about the cross bar hitting my knees when seated, but with the Leg being pushed back (C Leg) versus centered (T Leg) that meant it was highly unlikely I would hit it on either the VertDesk V3 or the UpLift Desk V2 Commercial.
UPDATE 1: I also really like that this product is built in America and as such does not have supply chain issues like the Chinese OEM product from UpLift. Certainly, being geographically closer doesn’t mean they can’t have problems here as they do have many parts from other countries, but the frame itself is made here. I also feel better about supporting American workers who make the legs and assemble the products. Ryan from BTOD has corrected me on this point I was incorrect on this part of my write up: "The frames are made in Taiwan. The frames come into the factory at K&A. They put in the gears and glides, then make sure everything fits snuggly and smoothly. The gears, motor are from Europe and we use high end glides to ensure proper spacing and lubrication between the columns but the frames themselves are also coming from overseas." So there is still a good possibility of supply chain issues, which explains why the cost is $200 less than the iMovR Lander that has its frame made in the USA. In addition Ryan pointed out from this blog post https://www.btod.com/blog/2017/03/04/a-standing-desk-evolution-vertdesk-v1-and-v2-vs-vertdesk-v3/ “In order to cut down on our quality control issues, we have brought the assembly of the VertDesk v3 to the USA. We are now shipped pre-assembled columns, feet and work surface supports from our Taiwanese partners factory. The gears are shipped to us from Ketterer (Germany) and the electronics come from Laing Innotech (Hungary). The US factory produces the cross support, hex rod cover and work surface. All of the parts are then assembled and boxed for shipment from the Wisconsin warehouse.” This was my mistake in understanding the video and in NO place on their site do they claim to be more than built in the USA. I still like this added step as it still has US workers assembling and ensuring quality and while it is only a few parts actually being produced in the USA, it still matters to me.
UPDATE: Here is a photo of my current desk and setup. My plan is to keep the legs and add the standing desk base inside it to just raise the top when needed.

2020.09.06 13:26 NumberFast My Opinion on Demo

Prologue
Something is… wrong. Or not?
Hello, I am just a normal user on the net who never even thought that a day would come to write something like a review. First, I heard about this game in the spring of 2018, but couldn’t give it a chance due to coming exams and didn’t even care about it. Almost exactly two years later I heard and saw some drama taking place around developer of the game and… again didn’t care about installing and trying the game, although memes and etc. made good pastime during my boredom. The reason I didn’t tried to play the game this year was that it was in “sandbox debug” state. I’m not against sandbox, but when you don’t have much time and know that the game must have some specific goal – it’s better to wait for it. Sure, there was no point in waiting for something that would have never released in the first place, but who knew… So, Osana demo was released and I decided to play it to make my own opinion about it. I’ll try to make this review subjective-objective, i.e. it’ll include my own subjective opinion as the attempt, and I mind you, attempt to review the same topics objectively. Also, I will try to ignore whole drama thing that taken place. The build I was playing on was the September, 4th one. Without further ado, let’s get started.
Gameplay positives
Lots of them are actually concept-like. I personally liked the idea that the player can customize character, can join clubs to get some perks, build his reputation in school. All that to get personal enjoyment and some help in eliminating the rivals. If I will try to abstain from my own view, I can say that these features are just normal for a game in school setting to build gameplay. Getting to the main point of game – eliminating the rivals, I can understand that the whole concept is just a rip-off of a Hitman game series. Subjectively and objectively, there is no bad thing in taking the concepts of a game series you like to build something of it’s own. And on paper Yandere Simulator maybe does indeed make this statement happen true. I wrote maybe due to the fact that I had a very little exposure to a Hitman series. I never played it myself, only had a chance to watch how my brother was walking through the “Blood Money” game and it was about a decade or more ago. Also, as far as I could find information people were writing (and also the developer himself said) that some features in Simulator were taken directly from Hitman, for example, the whole “Schemes” thing. Again, if you think there is no bad thing as long as you admit it and advertise your game as “Hitman-like, inspired, etc.” and not something “my own, original, never-seen-before” while also making your own features to expand concept. In Hitman every new elimination target has it’s own level, in Simulator every target is in school. Exactly these features described at the beginning of paragraph expand the concept thanks to the school setting – you get to build your own image that’ll help you in future. But, as I described, they do this on paper. Fist, because right now player can experience only a week of game time. Second, it’s almost impossible to play the game to the fullest extent possible right now for a normal player. So, going to negatives.
Gameplay negatives
Fortunately, or unfortunately, this is where the demo shines – bugs. I can say that I haven’t finished it single time even though I clearly knew what I was doing and was doing it step-by-step. It’s pretty easy to softlock the game without even trying. I can say that I am a person that likes to solve problems peacefully so I gone with “befriending” elimination method. I got to the point where I put the note to Osana locker, then I need to inform her and this is where I screw myself. Either she bugged out and there was no option to inform her about note, or I just didn’t saw it in time due to that this option being so tiny under dialogue wheel, especially on 1920x1080 resolution. Well, Osana gone to wash the fountain and the chances that she will gone to the roof for scheduled time became zero (even if I will got her to speak, because after she ended washing I couldn’t speak to her). Yes, I admit that this was my own mistake. But the player can undo the mistake. Just reload the save. Right? Right. There is the warning that this feature is very broken, but nothing could go wrong… for the exception that the whole game goes wrong if you will load save. First, I always make save at the very beginning of the game. Unfortunately, you can’t make saves in the hub areas so the earliest time I could save was the 7:00 AM on Monday at school. And I did. Nothing could go wrong when no script had just begun executing for the exception of Osana and Taro (is this his name?) speaking. Yes. After my screwing, I loaded this save and everything was normal, the script gone just as it intended to do, then Osana spoke to Raibaru and… No. The save was broken, here is the link to what the heck happened. I couldn’t even spoke to her. There whole scheme was instantly softlocked as the only way was to go to class and skip to lunchtime. Maybe the rooftop conversation between them still happens if I haven’t eavesdropped on the phonecall but I can’t complete task for Osana so I reloaded to another save. That actually works pretty fine. But no, after hearing the rooftop conversation I couldn’t use an option “about stalkers and blackmail”. I mean the game writes that it IS open when you hear the dialogue, but then in locker-room it IS locked (ironic). I even had a “sister-save” to this save. The only difference that I already discovered where Osana locker is. However, in this save she does not go to the roof at all. She’s just going straight to wash the fountain after I skip time from lunchtime to after class. I’ve spent two hours trying to understand which save is not broken (I had about 6 of them). I found none. Even objectively, it is a very bad thing as you have to start the day over from scratch every time you fail. And you have to start over the day if you want to try new elimination method due to bagginess of saves. But, most importantly it is a bad thing due to the fact that the developer had six years to make the save function work correctly. I will write about it in detail at the end of the review.
Story
I can’t say anything about it because my experience of it was completely ruined by the bugs described earlier.
Voice Acting
As far as I can see it is almost a good job. From what little dialogues I experienced, Brittany Lauda does good, if not superb, job at nailing tsundere archetype. The main character is voiced normal. I mean at least it’s explained in the plot why she must sound like this. Also, I don’t think that it’s the yandere archetype at all. However, all questions to the script. Plus I decided to watch some cutscenes on YouTube, boy…. Oh boy… What the heck happened. Why some lines sound like they were written with 9 kHz discretization frequency or just compressed by mp3 algorithm numerous times. Too much noise and bad fidelity.
The Script
Sometimes it’s bad. Like very bad. The intro dialogue with Info-chan reminded me the rooftop scene from “The Room” by Tommy Wiseau. Now, I do know why MC sounds off, but not SO awkwardly off, same goes for Info-chan. Also, who names the character “Info-chan” anyway when the whole game uses English honorifics instead of Japanese one? Correct me if I’m wrong here. I know that the characters ingame speak Japanese, it’s just that we experience it as English. The intro cutscene script does sound cringe. Especially for the game that tries to take itself seriously while trying to be anime game. I mean if it was anime alone then ok, most of anime have a liberty to do this because they are trying not to be serious. But in a game that tries into serious plot? No, either you have to explain it somehow or it won’t work.
The reasons
I think right now everyone with critical thinking know why everything that I wrote happened. The developer himself. First, as the man who studies programming I understand that sometimes it’s very hard to write normal code or implement something correctly. However, it’s not an excuse to write the code that we have today. Second, why does this build called the “demo” and not the “debug”? There is some interesting work called the gametester. For some reason the normal players are gametesters right now. Like it was before with “sandbox debug” builds. The new question arises. Why he released Osana now? If players have to test everything, he could release her right away during first implementations. I bet the work would go much faster. Third, the game has a very promising and big concept. Essentially, it’s a very complex software. IT-teacher taught me in school software most of the time never written alone. Usually, a director gives tasks for programmers and has program testers. In case of videogames, there are people who are responsible for creativity (gameplay concepts, character design, script, story, etc.). Only after the separate modules written, debugged, merged into complete program and debugged again in a complete state the software is released. The developer wants to do this route only now, after he released Osana in the state she is now. This is where the project will most likely fail. If the croudfunding campaign will succeed, It will be same story that happened with the programmer he hired earlier. This is where I want to speak for myself how I view the today’s situation. YandereDev is hardly a professional programmer. He may give a birth to a good concept, but he does not have needed skills and patience to implement it. More important, I think he may truly love what he decided to create but does not have needed passion to finish it. At the same time it’s all about and not about the money. There was no need to work six years (or six months of nonstop working how he counted, that I can actually more or so believe) on Osana to begin croudfunding. The thing needed was just to do a quarter of what he “released”. I mean – the same rival, the same goal, but with much lesser elimination methods and overall features. This is what is the proof of concept, the “demo” he always described. Then hire professional programmers, who will reimplement old content in better code and write new one. It would have happened if the developer had a needed passion. Because usually passion to your project will help you overcome your own drawbacks. In the case of Alex and the game it’s his antisociality, inability to take almost any form of constructive criticism, understanding that he can create idea but not implement it correctly. In my case it is the fear that this very review I am writing right now will flop. And it’s actually already flopping since it is my very first one, it’s already much bigger than I expected it to be and somewhere I made a very bad logical connections. As we can see, in the end Alex could do everything right, but sitting on donations and taking time more and more was the concept far more appealing to him.
The Epilogue
I can say that I enjoyed the concept of game itself but the overall implementation was poor. It would be better if instead of spending two hours on the playing with saves I would spend that time watching some movie. Of course, there was no need to expect something good from this experience but I had to check this thing myself. More importantly, I had to write some review to get experience. So here it is. Sorry for my bad English in advance, never wrote something big in it.

2020.09.06 07:49 Ribboter An Overview of the Demo And my Thoughts

What I will and will not use in this review:
Will:
Will not:
Love and Support [Demo - Disclaimer Bit]
If you want to support the Developer, I recommend taking a long look at what he's done. He's gotten around 3 to 4 years to benefit from Patreon funds, which at its peak was $5000+, he's blatantly lied about having a S. Doll, despite evidence directly proving so, and he's given the few remaining fans of the game a initially broken demonstration of a game, which has taken 6 long years to develop, with some road-bumps.
But if you're a dedicated fan, and wish to continue referring to any negative criticism of Yandere Simulator as being accosted with Gremlins, please understand the following:
Day 0 - Prerelease [Shortened Timeline before the Demo]
April 2014 - The game is originally referenced on 4Chan.
September 2016 - The final non-rival specific elimination method [Match-matching] is added; The official rival introduction video releases.
October 2016 - The development on Osana official begins.
December 2016 - Mission Mode is added to the core game.
January 2017 - The "Mystery Obstacle" [Raibaru] is referenced for the first time.
November 2017 - The "Senpai Rejects Rival" Elimination Method is added for Osana.
December 2017 - The Student Council is showcased.
February 2018 - Bullies are showcased.
April 2018 - Delinquents are officially characters in the game, and not just static models.
August 2018 - Multiple new characters, clubs, etc are showcased.
November 2018 - "Hate and Shame" releases.
July 2019 - Raibaru is officially showcased as who she is.
August 2019 - You can join the Delinquents now.
October 2019 - The finalized Street Location is added in.
April 2020 - "Snap Mode" is added after 6 Years of waiting. Yandere Dev goes silent on YouTube.
August 31st, 2020 - Osana finally arrived.
Day 1 - Launch Day
After 2,344 days of waiting, the official 1st Rival, Osana Najimi is added in. We finally got to experienced what the Demo is going to be. We finally got the game that has spent 6 Years with no Objective.
And it didn't age well.
You would think that the Dev would've done what he promised, release Osana as not a glitchy-buggy mess. But what we got was just that. To name just a few of the many glitches at launch:
In short: Yes, Osana was a glitchy-buggy mess at launch.
Days 2 to 6 - Patches
Over the next five days [and counting], Yandere Dev had to release patch after patch to resolve some of the glitches of Yandere Simulators' demo. This was to say the least, unexpected. This was proof that the Dev could've developed the game much faster while under pressure, but for some reason, he didn't over the prior 2 years of making the game, and 4 years of making Osana Najimi function. As for the patches on their own, they worked in almost every instance. [Becides the previously mentioned Softlock]
But with those patches, this leaves me questioning if Osana was ever tested by somebody besides Yandere Dev himself. If he actually had beta-testers, we wouldn't need 5+ days of patches, just for Osana to function. But as we know, the Dev communicates as well as Plants and Animals.
Today - My current thoughts on the Demo
With all of this in mind, I'll be fair to for now ignore the glitches, and give the benefit that the Dev will eventually fix everything out. If these all are resolved, what do I legitimately think of Osana Najimi as who she would be if everything worked.
As of now, I'm overall disappointed with the theoretical best case scenario of a bugless Osana.
Osana Najimi overall feels too uninteresting as a target to defeat. With her taking four bloody years, I would've expected more out of the biggest addition as of 2020. Her design is supposed to be the introductory Rival, but she doesn't do a great job at being logically difficult. The only reason why you aren't intended to kill Osana at the very start is because of her overpowered ally, Raibaru.
Raibaru Fumetsu - The most powerful character in the Demo
At first glance to the casual observer, Raibaru doesn't seem that powerful, she just seems like a friend of Osana. But then when you try to traditionally attack Osana [When Raibaru is around] or Raibaru herself, she becomes the most powerful character in the game. There's zero chance of killing her through standard attacks, as she'll immediately take you down.
So how would you learn this information without outside help? Well, there's only three real methods to find out:
  1. You try to attack Raibaru and lose.
  2. You know that [Raibaru] Fumetsu translates to "Immortal Rival".
  3. You pull out your phone, take a picture of her, and then Send it to infochan, and then you'll see the tiny bit of text noting that her strength is "Invincible".
But then how is she Invincible in the Lore?
If you're the ~1% of People that have looked at the Yandere Simulator Character Bio of Raibaru, you'll find the following information:
Exactly one year before Yandere Simulator takes place, Raibaru was the president of the Martial Arts Club. She was a very good teacher, and taught many students self-defense, even if they weren't actually members of the club. Many students underestimated Raibaru due to her cute and girly appearance. A lot of students challenged her to duels, believing that they could easily defeat her...but she never lost a single match. She was very proud of her 100% win streak. It earned her the nickname of "The Indestructible Rival".
Raibaru's star pupil was Budo. Budo learned many things from his sensei Raibaru, and held an immense amount of respect for her. At the end of the semester, Budo unexpectedly challenged Raibaru to a duel. She accepted his challenge, and to everyone's surprise, Budo defeated Raibaru, shattering the 100% win streak that she had worked so hard to maintain. However, Raibaru was not angry when she was defeated; she was relieved! ...
In Short: Raibaru was in Martial Arts, she lost to Budo, she was relieved, she's friends with Osana.
Then how is she more powerful th~
It's not explained in the game or in the lore, and I don't have all day to be Yandere Dev.
No Proper Tutorial Mode
As of the current state of the Demo, there isn't much of a tutorial for the casual player. There's the Info-Chan tutorials, but that's just some textboxes, explaining things as you play. There's no way to learn these features, outside of being told through textboxes, which if the player disables them [and decides not to re-enable them], they may be confused on some mechanics.
Even with these textboxes, some information such as personalty types aren't fully explained, forcing the player to externally research about the 15 or so personality types of each and every character, which then requires the player to check through using the Send Feature of Info-Chan in order to know who has what personality the first time around; or naturally find out the personalities, which will take a long while.
Clubs are Unbalanced
Within the current state of the Yandere Simulator Demo, the multitude of clubs have a wide range of viability overall. But the big problem overall is the underpowered and overpowered features of some clubs over another.
One of the more common secondary perks of Clubs is the ability to carry around X Weapon without being considered suspicious [Seen in Cooking, Sports, and Gardening]. But why use X Weapon, when there's Scissors and the Box Cutter that allow you to carry around without being considered suspicious?
As for Primary Perks, those can either be hit or miss. With the Sports club for instance, you get access to slightly faster running speed. But there's the Gaming Club, where you can get access to buffing one of your perks for that day, including your running speed.
What could explain the imbalance?
One possibility, as described by MafeKrug, could be the existence of Clubs prior to the initial Development of Osana Najimi, the introduction Rival. Without her, it's hard to tell how powerful a club should be. However, another possibility could've been that Kokona was originally going to be one of the Rivals, but ended up being scrapped in the main game, which could explain why the Dev initially spend so many resources on a background character that weren't going to be utilized, along side the original Club Balance.
Player Customization still doesn't Exist without Debug
Despite the fact there's settings in the Debug Menu [Which you can gain access to in the Demo by beating Osana] which allows you to modify your hairstyle and funny bits, along side being able to customize your Senpai and both Male and Female clothing, you can't actually customize your character without debug, even though that would only take a few hours to program, if that.
Extra Content
So, let's say you've beaten Osana, and actually enjoyed her overall. From there, what can you do? Well, you can eliminate her with the other elimination methods, there's the extra Debug features and Easter Eggs, and there's Mission Mode. At least with Mission Mode, there's some variety with the alternative mode, which can be a fun distraction every now and then. But after you've gotten bored of that, there's not much else to do in the current state of the game. There's no Female Senpai, no 1980s Mode, no other alternative gamemode, no easy way to modify student schedules, and Speedrunning the actual demo isn't too interesting in concept, as you're mostly just waiting around to find the opening to get rid of Osana asap, or rushing through some events to finish the Demo in a specific way. There's only two main modes, debug features, and some extra ways to stop Osana.
How Quickly Can You Kill Osana as Intended [Spoiler Bits]
Outside of abusing corners, the fastest method of Killing Osana is Drowning, Stabbing, or Poisoning her on Monday during Lunchtime. If you want to want to use any of these methods, you'll want to get 25/50 Panty Shots [Or 3/5 Bug Placements] for Emetic Poison or Lethal Poison. If you want to specifically Poison her, get Lethal Poison, and poison Osana to death. Otherwise, get Emetic Poison, and either Drown or Stab her. Congratulations, you've beaten the Demo on Monday ingame.
Demo Epilogue [Bigger Spoilers]
~If you haven't beaten or seen the ending yet, hold on, and beat the demo for yourself~
In Short, you get to watch Senpai talk to Amai about how Osana is gone in some way or another, and she cheers him up. For one reason or another, this cutscene isn't animated because "please make the crowdfunded campaign successful." You get a message from Info about your next Rival, and the Demo official ends with a small demo section to explain some of the benefits of the campaign succeeding.
My Overall Thoughts Recap and Conclusion
To recap of my main points:
As a whole, I felt Osana left me with an unsatisfying ending, still wondering if the product was ever going to be completed, and making me fully realize that this game didn't do what I wanted.
It's disappointed me, and after all of this, I'm probably gonna be taking an break from playing the game. I may one day revisit the demo if the Dev steps up his plans, and fixes the demo, but that's unlikely at this rate of development.
You, the reader, can make a decision to continue supporting Yandere Dev or leave him for other projects, or just move on with your life.

2020.09.04 02:00 Niegil Vital Combat/General "Q&A" w/ Kidd Overview

Kidd randomly hopped on the discord, people asked questions in the #rotmg channel and he answered them for an impromptu, kinda interactive, Q&A session that then turned into casual talk with the devs. Some didn't have a specific question but rather a discussion so they won't include a question. It started off with mostly being about the recent PT but strayed off from there.
one quote = question, two quote = kidd (and much later on toast) answer
The hero system would likely be severely modified when we finally get to update the realm.
The hero system would likely be severely modified when we finally get to update the realm.
Their rarity is absurd for no reason
Yes, they're strong
No, that doesn't mean you should usually go years dry
They are too rare as is but until we can guarantee that they exit the game (i.e deaths actually happen more commonly) it's a bit of a risk for us to provide them.
I personally don't like balancing item based on rarity but I'd like to get a middle ground where they are still relatively rare item but not a once a year rate.
A big part of their rarity in my view is also that the current EncounteRealm system are not engaging enough meaning that the amount they get rolled is lower than they could possibly be with a better system.
While making them more common would likely lead to realms being run more until obtained I don't think it address the core issue that the realm loop itself isn't as fun as it could be.
The realm having more rewards tied to it is something I'd like to do but with the current structure there's not as many good location as I'd like to.
Why does necro not get split heal?
Necro not getting split healing is a matter of doing things step by step.
We are making various changes based on feedback received.
Kidd, how is Tome of Pain being addressed?
One of them is turn the cooldown into an MP Cost increase instead so Tome of Pain should feel better.
Its damage I believe might also get bumped further up as well.
Kidd what was the logic behind tome cooldowns?
Priest is a naturally mp stacking class so having cooldowns limit the utility of your mp feels pretty bad
Cooldown was due to looking more at the number rather than the feel of the class, it was an experimentation we wanted to get feedback on.
Is there any reason that daggers haven't been buffed yet?
Daggers will get a buff, it's something we didn't look at for PT as it wasn't a main point of it.
will buffing stat items ever work like they're not tincs like monocle + bloody stacking would weaken one by half
Maybe, currently we are pretty limited in our resources due to MotMG taking a lot of them away but when we have some more free time I'll see if we can investigate it.
[something something exaltation numbers are absurd]
Exaltation numbers will be lower in the final version.
Won't share the specific number since things are still not 100% final.
what if u just said when next pt/announcement is instead of saying what every change is
Having more PTs would be nice but I'm not sure if that will happen due to those taking a good chunk of time that at this point we'd rather invest into finishing and polishing MotMG content.
I don't have anything to share about Puri at this time, haven't made a final decision there yet.
Will AoO skull get any changes when Summoner comes out? Or will it remain as a limited-time relic of the past?
We aren't working on summoner right now so I'm not sure.
so the class teased in december is going to be a different class than summoner?
A class tease in december? Either that was the PT we had or Bard.
it was one of the things answered in the last qna
Oh you meant for December of this year my bad, don't have anything new to share on that front.
Kidd have you guys considered adding status chain immunity to effects beyond paralyze/petrify?
Other effects like blind, slow, confuse, sick can feel pretty unfair to get chained together
We've considered it but the way our game work right now would require adding additional immune variants for all those effects which makes the implementation a bit tougher.
While you bring that up we decided to put the immunity changes on hold as we felt it required too much effort on our part to properly do it on top of the large amount of changes related to Vital Combat.
do you agree that sealed cskull is a lamely designed ut? Now seems like the perfect time to rework it, since you're revamping early-game dungeons. I'd love if it had some kind of over-heal/shield system(fits with the lore of the item). Is there any reason a mechanic like this hasn't been introduced into any ability? Is it technical reasons? Would it be too hard to balance? Or just a big un-noticed opportunity?
We've thought of the idea before but with how strong healing is overall we felt giving players more powers on that front to be a bad idea, maybe we'll revisit this after Vital Combat.
More guild/party options is something I'd love to see but it always falls pretty low on the priority list.
Are there plans to do some basic guild QoL stuff? Something like increasing guild cap to 100 would make it easier to do small group oriented gameplay that this PT update seems to really want to try to push
No specific plans at the moment but guilds is always something we want to work on but get our focus taken by other additions or reworks that we feel are more important to the core experience.
new class when [flushed emoji!!]
When it's done™️
if we're all hopping on this Q&A, how much would you say exalt really brought down tech debt for realm? Will a reworked client make changes to the backend easier or is the frontend now flexible enough to accommodate more changes?
It improves frontend a lot, especially once Flash is finally out of the picture we'll have even less constraints.
will the ut forge be monetized in any way
Don't have any news to share regarding Item Forge at this time.
kidd, are you able to spill any of the beans to these young lands about motmg
I like MotMG, is that good enough?
(no)
I know deca doesn't like duping atleast on some level and a certain oryx 3 raiding discord has been duping 100s of decas to pay runes to pop for their runs, and its been going on for quite a while, all of their staff is in on it. Is deca going to address such large-scale and very visible duping?
This isn't something I can really comment on since this isn't my area and those type of communications are on a case by case basis.
If you can send more information via PM or CS that would be very much appreciated.
I'm still adjusting it but until it's able to be properly tested in a live environment it's hard to 100% predict how players will react to the change when taking into account things like the HP Scaling.
Currently toying around a 2.5% fall off instead of 5%.
does the team plan on reworking any classes soon?
Depends what you mean by reworking, if by that you mean fundamentally change how the ability works, not really.
have you played doom eternal
No, haven't played DOOM 2016 either but I need to find the time for that.
yes this was important
do you guys at deca think sorc is fine or are you planning on making some other changes on him(aside from the buff he gets with vital combat)
We think the PT version of Sorc was fine if not too much on the strong side, scepters could probably use some slight tweaks but it's not something we plan to change at this time.
what is your favorite class?
Favorite class is probably Wizard, Sorcerer or Paladin.
tbh all scepters should be buffed to be on par with the honey scepter
Don't let Toast hear you, he'll do it!
[discussion about void/dps checks in it]
If the timer for Void was removed, would you tie platform size based on boss HP?
Can't promise specific changes for Void but I'll look into it when I have some more time.
is kidd still reading [different flushed emoji]
I'm still reading yes.
Just absorbing the feedback.
plans to touch up on cemetery and lod
No specific plan right now but I do want to review both of those at one point.
[discussion about discords and what runes mean to them]
Runes tradable would be great except it probably would take less than a day to make them worthless, we considered it but decided it was risky.
We made some changes to runes rate and are still monitoring and will still be making changes based on usage and access rate. Overall our plan was for access to be pretty rare on release and slowly become more available as time goes on.
What if no duping
They would be tradable if duping wasn't a thing, a lot more items would likely be.
[more discussion about duping being done already]
Do you think you can send me the specific info via PM? Would make it faster to investigate.
do you guys have anything planned for communication in the future, it feels pretty few and far between that we get communication like this with deca staff
especially with the qnas being nonexistent
Right now (well tbh since end of Oryx 3 dev) has been pretty hard for us to find the time to properly communicate, I'm kind of doing it in my free time right now since time communicating is time not spent on designing.
You may remember we asked a little bit back if people would us to bring back RealmCast, that's one avenue we may eventually take for more consistent communication (although for that one I really need to buy myself better material).
I can tell you we'll improve but we've failed multiple time in the past not because we wanted to but because development can get pretty hectic in the moments when communication is important.
are you happy overall with how the o3 release went
I didn't get anxiety that stopped me from wanting to wake up like Lost Halls' original release so on a personal note I consider that a success.
From a company perspective we saw a lot of people play the game on release and overall not a ton of issues so it was very much a satisfying one.
Any plans to rebalance procs to be less luck based and more useful/reliable?
Soul's Guidance definitely is one I want to update
There's no specific plan to update procs, more of an item by item basis thing.
is there a plan to make monocle and bloody cloak stack better?
Better Stacks/Proc synergy is something I want but need to find time for.
from the craig dialogue I think the arachna sprite will still be used in some way
this is master detective work from me you are welcome
from that one comment i can say arachna will not die (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/230500411835023362/751217785283018842/unknown.png)
unless toast dies, then it'll be changed
I'm planning on not dying before the Spider Den but who knows what Kidd will do to me.
You did mock baguette that one time...
Kiddforce and I have personally read every single piece of feedback both on the RealmEye thread and posted elsewhere.
And we've had very extensive conversations for action based on all of it.
Did you read my feedback Toastrz uwu
No we specifically ignored yours Sues.
Also was there a reason the devs showed up?
I saw some interesting discussion and decided to stop by.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Ok I'm just saying having the devs is usually a big deal
We'd like for it to not be a big deal honestly. I like getting to chat in here candidly.
Wish it could happen more often but tend to get busy with projects too much to set aside extra time.
The entire design team looking at the dumpster fire they got handed and shortly coming to question their decisions: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/230500411835023362/751219919621718036/unknown-50.png
I probably should have spent more than 5 minutes on that craig construction hat sprite :(
we can say canonically craig made the construction hat himself
he tried he best
Yes.
That's canon now.
A man of culture.
Are there any plans to add official customization into the game? Like the item sprites and stuff
No plan at this time.
Is there any content pre deca (let's say exclude jungle and oryx chicken) you think needs no rework of any sort
Beachzone.
Were the turrets in WLab there the whole time or was I blind
Because it made WLab even more of a shit dungeon
Yeah.
WLab with an autumn aesthetic would be 👌
I really wanna do that someday in a rework.
The dungeon is BEGGING for crisp fall leaves with colorful reds and yellows and browns.
[ugc/testing discussion into testing app]
Applications are being reviewed still.
We have a fair amount of UGC people already which is why we were specifically seeking testers.
Is the lack of more hired UGC due to budget issues or not wanting/needing that yet?
Not a budget thing. It's a mix of us also getting external designers and a pretty specific set of needs to be officially hired. A lot of UGC members are still at points of their life that would make it difficult for them to commit regular, consistent time to it as a job rather than volunteering on their own time flexibly.
We should make Limon have a small chance to spawn a special Craig sprite that's invincible.
Remind me tomorrow, no joke.
what is the red thing on that prism (agent of oryx prism)
ketchup
I like the ketchup answer.
Oryx was having a good meal but then his prism fell in the ketchup.
will the aoo items be introduced to o3
No plan to introduce aoo items to O3.
If we add them it would probably be O1 or O2 anyway.
when is o4
O3 took about 8-9 years so let's say O4 in 35 years?
Whatever would be after O3 would likely involve new mechanics or a more system based endgame system.
O1 and O2 both rly need changes
O1/O2 we want to go back to
I also want to update Oryx's Chamber visually, because I can't see Oryx just sitting there in an empty blue room as being his chamber.
if you go back to them, i think it would be much preferred if o1 difficulty = current o2 difficulty and o2 difficulty = between o2 and o3
I think it makes sense for the Oryx path to be something you progress through in stages as your overall progression through the game advances.
O1 = You're capable in the midgame and probably have a few stats maxed.
WC/O2: You're capable in the late game and are likely 6/8.
O3: As is, endgame content.
Do you plan to rework the Toxic Sewers? I don't remember it being in the list of MotMG rework dungeons
Sewers won't be reworked for MotMG
But I'm working on changes as a more pet project atm.
One of the big things I wanted to do for Sewers was have it be one interconnected dungeon instead of the final version where you are forced to go through small hallways etc..
Whenever a Sewers rework will happen it will be interconnected.
janus doesnt give fame atm
Janus is supposed to give 2 fame i think
Let me check that Janus thing.
Thanks for the Janus info, looks like it indeed doesn't give XP like it should.
got any plans to add scholar's seal entry in the realm eye based on the testing bug it would be kinda cool
Currently the Realm Eye only covered tiered equipment. Might expand it to UTs someday if I get an abundance of free time to actually write and implement all that extra lore.
There actually is a handful of UT lore prompts written in my master document.
Never implemented them though.
I do keep him up to date with content even though I never include it in the patch notes.
Whooooo knows, maybe I've slipped in a few extra lines since then nobody has noticed? ;)
They still talked in chat but more casual and not Q&A focused. more importantly im going to sleep

2020.08.31 02:53 Ron_Jeremy_Pony All natural

Everyone has those treasured memories. Childhood moments that somehow grow brighter and seem far better than they actually were. Maybe those moments were nothing more than going with their entire family to a small rural flea market, getting to look around, and ending up with a funnel cake that had to be shared. But when those moments become tarnished, it causes every single childhood memory to suddenly take on a duller and uglier view. For me that moment was going to the county fair, and going with my mom to the All Natural stand.

The stand was simple, it looked like any other stand at the fair. A single banner, or plank, hanging above the vendor, the table laid out with what they were offering, and if it was something that had to be made fresh a small cooking station behind them. All Natural was always made fresh, always ready, and it always smelled like heaven. I was told that the owner of the stand actually ran a small diner along Route 66 just outside of Tulsa. That he was always serving people, and that the diner was always full. I remember that the line to get up to the stand would be longer than most of the rides for the county fair, but it was always worth it.

The moment we would get up to the stand we would order two Sweet and Savory Brisket sandwiches, a couple of Cokes, and an order of fries to share. The old man running the stand would greet us with a smile, softly sing while he sliced up the melt in your mouth brisket, and placed it on home made bread. The fries were home fries, which basically was sliced potatoes and diced onions that were cooked in lard. It was the kind of thing that was guaranteed to cause heart attacks, and we loved it. Every year we would visit, and every year my mom would try to talk to him about the recipe.

She had this idea that maybe she could make it just different enough that it wouldn't be quite the same, but similar enough that she could sell it on the side, and then eventually get to just selling that fantastic briskey, but he always told her that it was a secret he couldn't share. The last time we went to the county fair and got that briskey was in 1996, and I was fifteen years old. I still loved them, but once again my mom asked about the recipe. I was expecting the same answer, but instead he scratched his chin, looked at her, and smiled.

"Tell you what," he said, "If you're willing to let your boy apprentice under me then I'll let you in on the secret. I'm gettin' on in years, and I can't keep this up forever. I don't have any family, and I'd like to see my food and diner go on after I'm gone."

She didn't even give me a chance to speak my mind before she agreed. He looked at me, handed me an apron, and said to get behind the stand, help with the cutting, and tomorrow I could come out to the diner and learn how to make the brisket. He told my mom that she could come too, and that she needed to invite someone that would be willing to test some of the food.

That day I worked, cutting the brisket, cutting the bread, handing it out, and the entire time I was watched, but other than getting a few suggestions here and there it was just a normal job. It was my first one, and I was surprised at how much I liked it. The day pressed on, and that evening he handed me a card.

"Had a feelin' 'bout you. You make sure that mother of yours has you at this address tomorrow at seven am sharp, and be sure that she's got that tester for me, eh?"

I nodded, showed mom the card, explained what he said, and she said that we'd take Aunt Claudia. Which mom wasn't hiding anything from anyone. She'd left dad when I was eight, and 'Aunt Claudia' came over practically every other day after that. I might not have figured it out, at first, if it wasn't that my asked me how my mom and her girlfriend was doing. In truth I just wished that she would have called Claudia her girlfriend, wife, or something along those lines instead of Aunt Claudia. Still, I nodded, and that next morning we left. When we got to the diner it was small, maybe the size of a small gas station, and in truth I think that was what it had been originally.

The kindly old man welcomed us, invited us in, and told me that I needed to be ready. We walked to the kitchen, and he explained that all of his meat was processed outback. That was how he managed to get the freshest cuts of meat. I was surprised, because although I saw what looked like an old barn about a hundred or so yards out behind the diner I didn't see any cattle. He had my mom and 'Aunt Claudia' take a seat at a table, and together we walked into the cooler. He had me grab a large slab of meat, carry it out, and went through the process of explaining how it would be prepared. I got started, and then he looked at the meat in there.

"Well," he said, "Looks like Imma gonna need to get another one."

He studied me for a moment, "Actually, why don't you help me?"

i nodded, and together we walked out to the barn. I heard the sound of something, just off in the dark, and he nodded, "Yep, they should be about ripe," he said, "Let's get the plump one first."

With that I followed him in the near dark until we neared something. In the dim light I could barely see it, but it didn't look right. He called me over.

"Now, boy, here's your test. You've eaten my brisket for years, and so has that mother of yours. I need you to help me slaughter this animal, and then we'll set it to drain. Afterward, well, we'll see."

What I saw I will never forget. What I did I will never forgive, and what I know I can never unlearn. I understood why most of the people that went missing around Tulsa stayed missing. I understood what he meant by telling me that I'd eaten his brisket for years, and I understood exactly what it meant for me. It's been fifteen years since that day, and the old man has long since passed on. The diner is still running, and the stand is still going. I'm still there, serving up the brisket, looking at those eating, and realizing that like him, I'm looking at potential cattle.

2020.08.31 00:02 chmjacques The beta-3 version of the ZOIA librarian app is available for download and testing!

The librarian beta-3 is now available for Windows (32- and 64- architecture), Mac OSX, (edit: Whoops, not yet and Linux.)
u/meanmedianmoge and a team of developers have been hard at work to create a librarian app for patch management, and they are ready for beta testers to try it out. You can download the librarian beta-3 at https://github.com/meanmedianmoge/zoia_lib
If you have a GitHub account, feel free to create an issue regarding any performance issues you encounter. If you don't have a GitHub account, send feedback and bugs to Mike at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).
(I created a new post about this because I could not edit the title of the previous post regarding an "initial beta." You can see the original post here.)
Edit:
I also wanted to specifically highlight this message from the patch notes:
"As an aside, with the release of Beta 3, my time working on the ZOIA Librarian has come to an end. I'm really proud of the current state of the ZOIA Librarian and had a blast working on it. I hope you all enjoy using it and that it continues to grow with new features to help out the ZOIA community.
- John B., Empress Effects Inc."
I've used "Mike and co." as a convenient short-hand for writing about the librarian team, but u/Ellipses22 has been the primary developer and all-around awesome person over the last few months, while doing a co-op with Empress Effects. His contribution to the project is impossible to understate. So, if you want to thank him, wish him well, send some love, report bugs you find (wait, I've been told not that one anymore).
All the best, John!

https://preview.redd.it/a0idra77n3k51.jpg?width=400&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0ca7fb10c47c331b1c2b17c08b67d34b56b09404
Awesome toy thing: super-fresh release (mid-2018), retaining the old design, but with a number of distinctive features that put it in the rank of “elite toys.”
You are completely relaxed – the pocket sex mechanism works for you!
Toys wizards have improved the principle of “suction”: the pocket toy grip is now noticeably denser, and rows of small balls running along your beloved sex friend process a larger surface.
In general, the feeling is as if you are paying attention to a calm, skillful woman … Who, it’s true, has no teeth. Although so much the better.
No worries about cleaning the dick pussy toys
Unlike most other models, this sex-version of the tiny top best-experience pussy will not force you to apply a lot of effort to clean it after use (of course, you need to clean it, because both the real and non-real but good-as-well pussy is not disposable).

https://preview.redd.it/55x564a6n3k51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=533f7e4412f3dda36497143eeba48d6e0e80c35c
You take that soft, pliable part out of the case into which you insert your male tool and rinse it out.
And what other advantages of this pussy thing can you name?
A whole pocket pile:
  • It’s compact (you can carry the pearl-kitty pussy anywhere, especially if you are driving).
  • It is reliable: you are unlikely to have problems with such toys repair or replacement, before the expiration date or after.
  • Works powerfully (5 rows, 50% more density).
  • Available in three sizes based on your natural dick size: the length is not taken into account, the pussy beads run regularly.
  • And you don’t have to change the case, even if you need different formats of sex pussy sleeves.

https://preview.redd.it/l20bcd34n3k51.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ac226b958a412b31eb87dfafdf957e1ba600d5cb
  • Accessible to well-clean (only a little water is needed, possibly with a special cleaning agent).
  • The pussy is best-stylish:
with proper storage, and in the neutral case enclosed ...the casual glance of a mom or girlfriend WON'T allow them to guess ...... what this pocket dizzy is intended for !?
  • When ordering, you can profitably purchase both lubricant and care product.
  • There is also a removable carrying handle (take your favorite hand to go on nature …).
Few cons:
  • The sex inlet is too symbolic (somehow we wanted more gentle Female Pussy outlines).
  • You have to fork out (although such a purchase can be considered a pocket investment in the future, so spending money should not upset you).

“I divorced because of this thing. Amid a quarrel, I told my wife that she was sucking worse. As a result, I had to look for a new home and a new girlfriend. This experience so changed my life for the better that I can’t describe with words. And, of course, even if I did not find a girl, I would not be upset 🙂 Thank you, dudes!”
  1. Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage
This company is known for producing the best toys in such an assortment that anyone can find the best toy in their life: gay, natural, lesbian, bi, combo, etc.
At the moment, it will be a time question: searching for a pussy thing that will markedly facilitate the life of a hetero or homo bachelor.

https://preview.redd.it/s6fiehjym3k51.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ef68e39512ffd59ddb9bfcc4bcee81d4f8522158
Who said that the toy should swallow your penis entirely?
This male model shatters your “decrepit” stereotypes. Take it and work from any end, not caring that the dickhead looks out or, on the contrary, the root remains blown by the breeze. The main thing is a pleasure.
This sex-thing has a lot of Pocket Sex advantages!
And here they are in front of you:

https://preview.redd.it/4s4wv3gxm3k51.jpg?width=536&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f402b5f1ed0884e90fd0cb372fbf820458224909
  • Maximum compactness: your working body does not have to fit into a toy completely.
  • 100% visualization: your penis friend is visible from the inside, and you can see how it (and you too, of course) is enjoying the Best Top life.
  • Open space for imagination: one end of a bilateral toy can become a vagina for you, and the second, an anus; or (if you’re gay) one is the anus, and the second is the mouth; or maybe it is generally the sucker of an alien mutant you conquered as the Earth-and-Mars male hero?
  • Due to the small format, it can serve as a mean for warming up or extra caress during “healthy” sex.
  • The pussy texture is the best for some of our testers: power-working, in the form of waves, circular.
  • It is easier to clean than classic toys. It’s the top penis donut.
  • And you’d clean it with ordinary heated water (you can buy special equipment of the same brand).
  • Comes with a case and hygienic plugs (two, which is logical here).
  • Differs by absolutely neutral design: no one would guess what is that until you say that’s the top penis pleasure.
  • Very inexpensive !!!
Disadvantages
  • Someone may not like the transparent design (no other color options).
  • And not everyone likes it when not fully sex-swallowing: get used to it.

https://preview.redd.it/vyyf640vm3k51.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e06c1076f1c206a3662a62b136349307fd6cc159
  • You have to work with your hands, independently, in a best-adult way.
  • Only one available toy size (if it doesn’t fit, suffer).
“I got this thing because I needed something that I could carry in my pocket. Not disappointed. Used it three times when I didn’t plan at all, just suddenly it was necessary to discharge. All three times finished magically. It is a super toy, men.”
  1. Pocket PULSE
This pussy model will undoubtedly surprise you: even when we first saw it, we took it for a specific glove or some sports equipment.
Although from some point of view, this thing is a top sports device. It truly can make your breathing quicken, and your muscles tighten.
Two impressive motors are trying for you!
Because of the specific design, it may seem to you that this is an utterly uninteresting toy stray, suitable only for low-grade self-satisfaction somewhere in the corner of the garage.
In fact, this thing is equipped with two network-charged, very appropriate engines that provide five vibro modes. Start and steering wheels!
Why do we love it so much
  • It is very light. It is incredibly easy. It is fantastically lightweight.
  • And also very compact.
  • Flexible, resilient, pleasant to the touch.
  • And can try for an hour without interruption, working for your benefit (reading it, you’d to think it’s the best toy in the world … maybe).

https://preview.redd.it/uc6fo2vqm3k51.jpg?width=1024&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d7fe1eb0187bddffc2335a7f9a7925f976ef93ca
  • You can adjust the pressure and intensity of vibration to your taste.
  • Waterproof – take it freely to the shower.
  • Interesting in appearance.
  • An unconventional form allows you not to wait for warming up: you insert a relaxed penis into the hole, and then the smart device will do best everything for you.
Why don’t we like it very much
  • Minimum diversity: most of the best functions (excluding mechanization), which differ other pussy toys of this company, are not available here. For example, remote control, hands-free mode, magnet-charging will have to be forgotten, which is a pity.
  • More expensive than the previous our top version.
  • Not everyone will like it when the swallowing is not deep (and here it IS, in fact, not).
  • 3-hour charging (we think it’s long for a sex thing that should be fun anytime, anywhere).
  • Only in black (only to us it seems that this color-selecting had made the model dull and uninteresting?).
“I was, really, attracted to the unique and stylish look of this masturbator. I thought, “Dude, you tried different things, what difference does it; let’s master this one.” And you know, I didn’t regret it! I had to try a little to get used to her form. But what a thrill when you sit in the car, and this thing itself gently strokes you, making you slowly get excited. It’s better than a blowjob from a road girl, believe!”
  1. THRUST Pro Mini Ella Realistic Pocket Pussy
‘Simple but effective,’ it was probably the top motto of the manufacturers of these toys. Indeed, what else is needed for a man who is embraced by desire, except for a seductive entrance and an elastic channel?
Lubricate it well
Apply a sufficient amount of lubricant (you can take any, even non-branded one: the main thing is that it is of satisfactory quality and isn’t cause allergies), so that the pussy sex process went as smoothly as possible.
Play with a partner
Thanks to a realistic form, the toys models are suitable for best-playing with seduction in front of your boyfriend (or a girlfriend).

https://preview.redd.it/q5os47nim3k51.jpg?width=696&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9d96346b5d8162ede3156ae06b65507988b2b5be
Just do not forget, at the very end, to get the pussy toy from under the bed, wash it, and powder it with special powder: then it’ll allow you to safely and effectively play with it many more times.
What’s right about this The Best Pussy
  • The texture of the internal channel is very unusual. Honestly, we saw such a variety of structures and textures only in the toys of top giants of this sphere of entertainment.
  • The format of the sex work channel is served as “super hard,” although the material feels elastic enough to get inside.
  • Outside, the surface is obliquely ribbed, to make it easier to hold the pocket pleasure-giving-unit in your hand.
  • At the base, there is space for a bullet vibrator: in this way, one can diversify the principle of using a pocket toy and achieve twice as much pleasure.
What’s wrong with it
  • This is what a “pussy” masturbator should look like in the best image of an average person: cheap, “dirty,” and … not quite aesthetically pleasing, without a beautiful case.
  • The lack of the case makes this pocket model fragile also.
  • And pleasure is reduced because this thing is difficult to grab.
  • According to some pussy users, getting into the internal channel is not the best: tight, inconvenient, and a bit painful (probably, including for the reasons mentioned above).

https://preview.redd.it/j3n0877hm3k51.jpg?width=940&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4775be1eaf7848114a96dcfc8dcaea16f862af9b
  • The length of the internal channel isn’t truly enough for everyone.
  • No opportunities to change the type of inlet of the toys (this coarse similarity of the clitoris is not very impressive).
  • Presented only in body-beige.
“This is the very thing that made me stop worrying so much because of the size of my dick. I will not say that it brought me to absolute ecstasy, but I was delighted with the length of the channel. Hell, I thought, if this full-fledged toy fits me perfectly, then everything is not so bad with me. Those who are complex because of the small dimensions, feel free to recommend. The pocket unit entrance is tight, but from inside, it is awesome.”
  1. Belladonna’s Pocket Stroker
One of the simplest, in essence, and content, toys (we are talking both about the purpose and the design).
The price is also relevant: the best manufacturers do not require too much. If you don’t need anything other than the vagina (not an abstract hole), then this is, definitely, your choice.
Take this pussy with you on any trip!
The main advantage of any pocket masturbator, devoid of a strong case, is its mobility. If you stick it in an opaque package, no one would guess that there is not a sandwich, thriftily taken by you for the journey.
And this pussy stray also looks like … a real woman, ok, at least her best lower part, is with you. Actually, this is almost the case: thanks to molding and other modern toys techniques that simulate naturalistic elastic materials.
Our Pros
  • The entry is copied from the corresponding organ of the star of adult-yeah-you-understand-us-films. Pussy petals are painted differently than the main part and very realistic.
  • The length and width of the channel (6 and 2.5 inches) are quite suitable for the owner of the good old average dick to do meaningful work with them.
  • The material is very sex realistic, not only in appearance but also to the touch.

https://preview.redd.it/msqhd559m3k51.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a83d6f5874e075f4a45c54c01caee31ec29b77f6
  • As part of it, there is an antibacterial additive that promotes hygiene care.
Our Cons
  • We don’t know who Belladonna is. It’s true. Although, we don’t mind to try a pocket model made based on her ‘body impression’ 🙂
  • The inlet, although beautifully designed, can almost literally alienate someone from it and draw attention to other, more aesthetic models (however, there are the best people who fall for just such a rough simplicity).
  • The whole shape of the pussy product caused not-very-pleasant associations (although again, you cannot get hung up on this if the essence is important).
  • It’s genuinely not very easy to hold this pocket thing in your hand.
  • It is overly plastic, so the work with it brings some discomfort.
  • No cover, and no sensible, practical packaging (even the pussy outer box could be decorated more elegantly).
“Outwardly, of course, it looks as if only truckers can dream of such a thing. However, I still decided to buy it, not least because of the design of the entrance. The girls I knew didn’t have lowerlips like these. Yes, I understand that all this sounds ambiguous, but I say it, as it is. I wasn’t disappointed.”
Several POCKET questionsWhy did you choose these models as the best ones?

https://preview.redd.it/dasj9hc6m3k51.jpg?width=522&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6f9111ba3d8c7730ac89f9d71709ca78d0b80465
We have already said that our task is to show our readers how wide and deep the world of pussy masturbators is. The quality of these pocket samples we are quite satisfied.
And how to decide which one is worth buying?
We believe that the main rule, as with women: if you are attracted to heit, then try. If you can’t imagine how you can sleep with THIS, then wait and try someone/something else.
Is a narrow pussy entrance always better than a wide one?
Naturally, not always. It is believed that the average man is more pleasant to use a male pocket toy that “does not give him immediately” and resists already with the introduction and sometime later so that the channel provides the maximum possible compression.
But there are those who don’t want to deal exclusively with “pocket virgins”; for such users, “hollow” is much more desirable in which the cock moves freely and without too much tension.
Such toys, of course, are also present in the market, and they’d be purchased at least to expand the pocket intimate horizons.

https://preview.redd.it/pbvm17r4m3k51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0a4f745a7c9489ff4b5147f0acd4339a44362488
Is it necessary to buy talc, powder, or whatever it’s called?
Powder for the care of pocket penis toys can be both branded and the most common, from the best children’s stores (yes, these from the movie about bebe’s butts).
It is necessary for more comfortable (for a delicate material) drying without deforming the product as well as the loss of pussy surface qualities.
Nobody forbids, however, to do your sex business without it, but in this case, likely, your pocket assistant won’t serve you as long as it could.
What if the pussy item had been broken?
Return it to the manufacturer if the warranty has not expired and you still have receipts, packing, and all that, as it should be. As a rule, we offer such pocket models with which, in this regard, users usually have no hassle.
But, of course, whether the guarantee is over or still valid, take care of the hygiene of your artificial pocket sweety, as women take care of the health of their vaginas.
No, it’s not necessary to wash it with intimate feminine means every day, but reasonable use of cleaning products and moderate drying are required.
What if I’m uncomfortable with this particular pocket toy? It rubs and presses me: it is impossible to relax
Most likely, it is worth adding more pussy lubricants. If this doesn’t lead to anything, try merely changing the sex lub. Just make sure that the new version fits into the type of your art pussy.
For example, only neutral humidifiers (water-based) can be used with one; and with the second, only those based on silicone; and with the third, absolutely any.

https://preview.redd.it/o3yfqe61m3k51.jpg?width=650&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=749b1616cd82ad425fb83b4ec62347cd5a9a44b3
Finally, if the discomfort did not go away after that, change the masturbator itself, buy one pocket thing that has a more extended channel and requires less effort when entering.
At the very least, a “sex-self-digest” session may be required. Ask yourself why it is hard for you to stick a dick in this particular pocket hole.
Maybe it just doesn’t attract you externally, and you would like to try out the one that has the shape of an anus or is fashioned from a cast of a vagina of a favorite erotic star?
Should I focus on the sex pocket model with the function of vibration – or will they prevent you from getting a decent orgasm?
On the contrary! Many men sincerely note that the trembling and cooing pussy devices make their orgasms quicker and brighter (it’s important to know, though: [2]).
However, such pocket units are often more substantial and more expensive than traditional sex models designed exclusively for independent work.
Therefore, evaluate for yourself what is preferable for you during the selection.
How to hide them?

https://preview.redd.it/zf1b5lxzl3k51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f851b0c16f0ed173fbdc73f560b8b1b668ab2c2e
The question of what to do if you have no place to store such intimate pocket things usually comes from those who live in student dormitories; or those men who, for various reasons, are forced to share a room with someone, say, with a brother; or the poor fellows, who have an excessively responsible mother (or grandmother), who, coming on a visit, tends to literally search the house of her son/grandson and find something that she is not supposed to see at all.
How to hide the acquired pussy by overworking from big-eyed detectives? Here we can give one piece of advice: buy pocket sex accessories that are originally supplied in opaque and/or camouflage packages.

https://preview.redd.it/2wen030zl3k51.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fb715a2537ea7e474b0fa49c841e7b3672eb4508
It is unlikely that someone will be interested in, say, a “flashlight”, standing on a shelf in its native cardboard box; or a “car tool”, lying in the garage, wrapped in a matte rag bag, among wrenches and screwdrivers; or even a beer can, “forgotten” on the bedside table and different from typical cans except in height and width (but this nuance still needs to be discerned).
But hiding, under the pillow, the sex delivering pussy, which looks 200% exactly as the male charging unit should look like and even devoid of any wrapper, isn’t worth it.

2020.08.29 23:30 Cosm1cCharlie Academic/Cryo-EM Build: EPYC 7402 with Supermicro H12 (Cross-post from /r/amd)

Am I doing this right?
First time building a server-like computer and I have gotten excited about the 2nd Gen EPYC line! I read a number of posts (e.g. this forum, WarpEM hardware recommendations, along with builds offered by industry vendors) to get a sense of balance between investing in RAM, GPU, and CPU for a Cryo-EM application, though I have a lot to learn here. Most vendors opt for Xeon-builds, but they do not optimize for value-driven performance. Ultimately, I landed on an EPYC-based build with a pair of RTX 2080 Ti GPUs.
I had originally looked into the Gen 3 Threadripper but was leary of the lack of buffered-ECC RAM and general gaming-tilt. Ideally a workstation/server like this will scale-up for future Lab builds and the Threadripper-compatible motherboards don't tend to scale beyond 3-GPUs.

Outstanding questions:
  1. Does it make sense to hold out for an ATX Supermicro H12 motherboard?
  2. EPYC 7402 selected based on number of cores & price/core (although the higher clock speeds for the EPYC™ 7F72 are appealing), is this a miserly choice?
  3. Cooling- For home-use I love the Fractal Define series, but here I'm hedging on cooling needs and am looking at their Meshify case, or the bequiet Dark Base (need to verify volume accommodations). Is air-cooling sufficient, should the case be purposefully over-sized for better active/passive cooling?
  4. I believe I can get an academic discount for an NVIDIA GPU (~20%), such as the Titan RTX or Quadro RTX 5/6k but the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti units come in at such a high-value it would be hard to pass up. (Perhaps this is why they're surprisingly difficult to source at the moment). Many industry builds cite higher-end cards like the P100 but they are so far outside of my price range I get the impression consumer-end cards are the right direction.
  5. I hope registered ECC RAM is worth the expense here, along with the 2133 vs. 3600 Mhz hit.
  6. Any critical accessories (aside from a nice 32" ISP monitor and peripherals) to consider?
Minor vent:
I had some vendors preach about warranty and liability which rubbed me the wrong way; I would love to spend more on the components and less on mark-up, as this is on an academic grant but can appreciate the value of offloading IT headaches.

" A lot of those parts to include CPU and memory, only come with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. If these GPU systems aren’t designed and supported by a company with expertise, then you can run into heat issue which will fry your parts. In that case, as failures come up you are juggling individual warranty issues with different manufacturers, which I guarantee would not be a fun experience. If warranty is short, you risk the additional costs to bring in new parts and the down time from research computing associated with that. With a system from us, we warrant the entire system and as support issues come up we respond and replace parts quickly minimizing downtime.
To me it is a no brainer and huge value, but what do I know. ;-) "

2020.08.28 02:06 mooonking Goblin customization ideas and suggestions

I love the nutty goblins and wish they could be represented like their wc2 and wc3 aesthetics with more emphasis on their toiling inventor, haphazard mechanic, bomb blasting and workshoppy ways, as opposed to the money-grubby coin counter profit obsessed stereotype that should only fit some goblin types but certainly doesn’t define all goblins.
This is a handful of thoughts I came up with to help provide the tool-toting, nuts and bolts and bombs of goblin culture that should be present in customization options so we can choose more explosive and grease monkey features for our green little guys instead of another thread that offers nothing but pimp accessories.
Time for some nuttier and fuller hairstyle options for males. Females have cool, zany hair, and males need some less depressing / 'shock’ing options too.
How about a zapped look, with a bunch of spiky blonde hair as if electrocuted, and singed hair from blasts? Maybe a bandaged head with tufts of hair sprouting through the wraps of cloth? Some styles could include a few frazzled strands hair for the jolted or burnt look?
And for skin, instead of tattoos and war paints and markings, how bout some grease stains, smudges and workshop scars/burns? Not covering the whole face but in a minimal or haphazard way that adds character and story.
Bomb earrings (black orb with fuse) for males and females.
Gear or cog earrings that loop through the ear-pierce, just like how most earrings do in 3-d, but these are gears instead of common loops -and not pressed flat on the ear like the gnome’s cog earring is. Buzz saw blade earrings if going to use the gnome cog earring model.
Screw or bent nail or nut and bolt earring that goes through one side and out the other
A pencil (or quill) or a screwdriver (or wrench) tucked behind the ear!
Resting between the ear and face! Like an inventor pouring over blueprints and jotting down notes, or their lucky mechanic’s tool, ready to grab whenever needed!
Additionally, some nicks and cuts such as a cut lip or workshop scrape across an eye or cheek would provide immersion for the; scoundrelly rogue, scrappy pirate, toiling machine shop inventor, junkyard scavenger, marketplace swindler.
A blind eye or a permanently closed eyelid due to an accident could be cool. Maybe I hi-res eyepatch option or two.
Some higher-pitched voices like the enthusiastic goblins in the wc games!
Not liking the bling idea, I mean it’s fine but it’s kinda obvious and tame. While goblins are depicted as money grubby, the actually likable and memorable goblins aren’t so gaudy. A chunky silver chain that’s actually 3-d and not printed on would be nice. Maybe one just a chain and one with an oversized silver bomb or rocket pendant. I would just use the plain one or none.
As for my above ideas I can really get behind them as they provide originality, story, character, personality and immersion.
Can the goblin heritage armor please have a rocket for their back slot or a barrel of fireworks and explosives?
Copper and/or dull iron/steel versions of jewelry would help fulfill a rustic or more workshoppy or punkish vibe than the blaring gold - which Scrooge McGob types would lean more towards and don’t represent all goblins.
Definitely color variations to help players and characters fulfill their desired fantasy. A dull, metal chain (maybe wrapped around wrist a few times) for a bracelet for a bikebruiser could be cool.
I like the idea of attaching immersion items to our characters via transmog, perhaps a category of collectible accessories.
Race specific items such as; for goblins; bombs, tools, dynamite/fireworks, coin pouch, Tauren; dream catcher, bones, beads, shells, dwarf; small axe, stein, coin purse, pandaren; kegs and teapots and gourd jugs, a fan, bamboo stalk.
Class and Profession and Civilian specific items such as; Potion bottles, vials, books, scrolls, compass, flower, herb, ammo, coin, treasure, medicine, jewel or reagent pouches, tools, profession and civilian items, lanterns, skulls, small sacks of important items. These sound similar to offhands but these would be collectible race specific or culture appropriate objects (or universal) that are more like decorations to add on to your gear for an extra bit of needed character.
Items could hitch to our sides, waist or belt.
I personally don’t want gaudy, thuggish jewelry, especially if it’s just for sake of saying goblins have bling because gangster or miserly goblins is not how all goblin players nor lots of beloved goblin npc’s are, and honestly I don’t consider bling showcasing the true goblin spirit nor mentality.
A chain or ring may be a good for those whose characters are into money but let’s get off supporting the one-note sleaze, when goblins spanner (hehe!) a range of hard working machine shop artists to bomb blast aficionados to grumpy inventors to lazy beach bums - not all out to make a buck or swindle. Some are just good hearted and love with and have a nack for their ramshackle inventions! So the overly used coin counting villain shouldn’t be their only customization option, it’s too one-note for goblins and for us players who may not play that way. So let’s see if we can get some grease monkey, tool toiling, haphazard and mechanic themes into our options for those who’d appreciate, especially if gold and bling -which honestly limit personality and character more so than enrich- are likely to be a given.
Yeah some are depicted as having a crush on money but honestly what I Ike about goblins are their high energy (the bling makes them look slow and miserly and evil-villain-like), their nutty lifestyle, haphazard ways, their love for machines and affinity towards explosions.
There’s so much to love about goblins other than the mostly overused greedy, banker stereotype. And there’s so much more to showcase their interests, hobbies, profession, character, lifestyle, as in my OP and as other fans have wished for.
So I’m not liking the bling idea, I mean it’s fine but it’s kinda obvious and without much depth for character or player. I think it limits rather than enhances personally and offers little in the way of customization, it makes the goblin look more miserly than he already is which could be what some are going for but honestly we should get a range of attributes not options that enforce an already existing and at times eyerolly gimmick.
While goblins are depicted as money grubby, the actually likable and memorable goblins aren’t so gaudy and one-dimensional. A chunky silver chain that’s actually 3-d and not printed on could be nice, if it’s one of many other well-rounded options to choose from. Otherwise everyone will just be a grimy pimp with none of their own rp nor personality. Shame if all we get is one side of goblinhood when there’s so much potential to enrich our goblins’ character and traits and interests, such as the machine shop wizard, eager bomb tester, scrappy inventor, nutty pirate, and the occasional serious and dutiful engineer, none of whom may care to bejewel themselves.
Maybe one just a plain 3-d chain with no emblems or pendants so we machine shop enthusiasts can wear a shop chain, or a chain with an oversized silver bomb or rocket pendant. I would just use the plain chain or none.
Lots of more flavorful ideas to let us play the dastardly villain, conniving crook, trickster pirate, bamboozling rogue, demolition expert, workshop wiz, marketplace mastermind, dutiful inventor, boomboxin’ blacksmith, engineer with one too many screws loose (or with just enough loose screws!), scrappy rogue, bomb squad member, crash landing tester, or the stereotypical greed ball that exists but I think doesn’t encapsulates goblin nature as a whole nor speaks for all goblins by a long robo-chicken sling shot!
As for my above ideas in the OP, I can really get behind them as they provide originality, story, character, personality and immersion, and don’t simply gild the goblin in raunchy gold which only emboldens one single out of many possible goblin personalities.
Additionally, I think one day if when we get normal culture attire, such as; frilly sleeves, long buttondown coats, and fancy vests with potion/wine-flask lined belts for nightborne, and beaded gowns, feathered upper arm bands for Tauren as a few examples, we’ll get unbuttoned Hawaiin shirts and/or sleeveless shirts, goggles/visor in the form of a cool, reflective ski-mask-looking shades - a single wide lens, with neon glowing rim, and of course lightening bolt or rocket decals. Ya know, not epic gear but more civilian and normal outfits our races wear on a daily basis, to wear when relaxing from saving worlds, to visit the town or market in, clothing most npcs are already wearing.
Move away from the one-note, sleazy motifs and let shine the nutty, gadget loving and tool toting, inventive and explosive screwballs that are also strong and for some, the better, defining goblin characteristics. Anyway, my goblins are more into creating and have ingenuity and spirit, one is even a little grumpy yet smart, toiling away in workshop pouring over strained blueprints, and one is even enjoys lazy island life, one is hyper and loves the thrill of inventing cool contraption then setting his inventions lose. None really are obsessed with scheming or gold.
Not really into the forced ‘must be obsessed with money and unfair practices’ sticker that gets slapped into all. Gold or diamond teeth would be the worst, especially when so many suggestions have been given that would enrich and allow the player and character to flourish with their personalities, while bling and gold teeth only enforce an exact and specific type of personality. Maybe one option for those who wish to continue the already severely overused stereotype.
Gazlowe is a breath of fresh air as while he may appreciate funds, his more endearing quality is that he has a big heart and his true passion is inventing and his teammates and making sure they are top notch and taken care of.
Gazlowe has a genuine concern and love for his ragtag teams and would make a better leader (unless galywix ever goes through a character arc) and better represents what it means to be a good hearted goblin while keeping the qualities and traits we’ve come to know and expect. He’s pure goblin portrayal. Spirited, lively, problem solving, eager to jump in there with his fellow goblins and get his hands dirty and face full of soot.
The goblins pictured with gold bracelets, chains, rings and teeth, look more like goons than what a goblin’s range of aesthetics can excitably offer. Decked out in shiny decorations may work for the gaudy or the crooked or the pimp, but for the rest of us big hearted, machine shop toiling, scrappy inventors, nutty bomb enthusiasts and lazy island workshop lugnuts, we the players and our goblin characters would benefit from a range of tried and true goblin aesthetics spannering (hehe!) the range our traits and characteristics and features and personalities that exist within our nutty minds and big hearts.
Less emphasis on gold and sleaze, more identity for us nutty workshoppers please.
