thinking about the whole trope of putting boobs on anthropomorphic lizards, trees, aliens etc and realised that anatomical diagrams are basically the same by oakreefin just_post

They just look like a scalped person, I'm not sure if there is a function that an anatomical diagrams would serve that a nude figure wouldn't serve just as well. Unless you really need to know fat pad anatomy, I guess.

I think hyenas are cool enough but def not a great mascot animal unless you want to have a mischief centered site

Did you just post a list of your favorite animals?

Fast fempire will return.

Good!

Importing the old posts + comments won't be the easiest thing to do. I might have to make a /r/archive or something that just has all the old posts in there done by an "archive" user, with some sort of note in the title denoting who the actual author and forum for the post were. This will be almost totally likely if I choose to use raddit.

I think this is a value question. Saving old stuff would be nice and nicer the more authentic it can be, but we should perhaps talk a bit about what we find valuable in it to guide the process. For me the most important part would be my own personal comment and link submission histories. In fact if I could get the latter dumped somewhere somehow it would be nice as I've been using tf.org as repository of interesting things I've read or watched on the internet. Like a CVS-file or something with dates, vote points, username, and a link one per line.

I'm gonna see if I can figure out how to get SSL (https) working.

This would be wonderful. 2-fact auth too. like make it space ageeeeee

I feel like Brd is kind of a weird mascot for us since even if we kind of started as a splinter from SRS we're not really SRS anymore? Anyone have any thoughts on this? A new site would be a good opportunity for a mascot change imo if it feels warranted.

I think that brd is pretty good mascot as it is if we don't consider the connotations. But if we do consider them, I'd say they don't really matter that much. SRS doesn't get that much attention even on Reddit anymore so I don't see any negatives pouring from that. Having a bit of history is just fun in my opinion.

EDIT: i totally think the mascot thing now overshadows everything, maybe make a new thread just for that later?

Wikiquotes is so trashy and weird by StudentRadical27in fempire

[–]StudentRadical 1 point2 points ago

My judgement was to a large degree an aesthetic one, in which nothing hangs together. It has some terrible photography (someone should give Zooey a hug I guess, the layout is wonky, pictures in general don't match each other at all mixing pieces of art with fossils with stock images with symbols that clash with each other. Proudhon quote has a flag for Christian anarchism while Proudhon was no Christian. Salinger quote has a Terry Pratchett coat of arms that has an ankh but there is also another ankh and an Etruscan horse and three pictures of trojan horses.

YouTube to crack down on inappropriate content masked as kids’ cartoons by hoppetin technology

[–]StudentRadical 4 points5 points ago

Also, all age-restricted content is not eligible for advertising, which will undoubtedly hit the wallets of the creators making these videos. While it's hard to understand why anyone would make a video about Peppa Pig drinking bleach or a bunch of superheroes and villains participating in a cartoonish yet violent "nursery rhyme," it's been a decent way to make money on YouTube. Some of these videos have amassed hundreds of thousands (and sometimes millions) of views, gleaning ad dollars and channel popularity.

We're going to see very weird new kinds of content soon as these captains of industry seek new markets.

Donald Duck's adventures with executive dysfunction by StudentRadicalin just_post

[–]StudentRadical[S] 3 points4 points ago

ok so now is time for my encyclopaedic Disney duck knowledge to shine! The style suggests that it's one of those gazillion Italian Duck artists. Also the layout of three rows and 1-2 panels per row in Duck comics is predominantly an Italian form. The blog author is Austrian so I suppose this is the English scanlation of a German translation of an Italian original.

Something is wrong on the internet (somewhat overly-long article about the weird algorithmically generated weird youtube kids videos) by oakreefin technology

Reading deviancy into "doob wafuke" is so symptomatic of the conspiratorial mind set haha.

I think part of his problem was trying to hedge his claims too much. Problem with any technology criticism is firstly that the commenting segment of readers often brush it aside as ludditism and secondly that they often are right, but not always. Here, for example, Youtube has been around so long that criticizing it shouldn't be dismissed merely as the fear of novelty and trying to placate people who mistake it for it is pointless so why not just cut the verbiage?
