I've created a list of rules as below, they will likely change later, but they are here for the purposes of establishing a base level of social order:
ONE: Do not post Illegal Activity. Also, do not post any manifesto's done by terrorists, active shooters, serial felons rationalizing such things, or promoting such things, even if your content does not endorse the message.
TWO: Do not engage in speech that promotes, advocates, glorifies, or endorses violence.
THREE: Do not threaten, harass, or bully users; and do not encourage others to do so on or off-line; nor make per se defamatory states at users.
FOUR: Do not post ISM. Involuntary Salacious Material means NSFW material of a manner that was not intentionally made public. This is the "upskirt", "revenge porn", and "private intimate photos" rule.
FIVE: Do not post Porn
SIX: Content that contains nudity, pornography, or profanity, which a reasonable viewer may not want to be seen accessing in a public or formal setting such as in a workplace should be tagged as NSFW. Any material of a titillating nature must be marked NSFW.
SEVEN: Do not post Facebook accounts, individuals who's twitters are less than 500 followers, private/personal information that is not publicly available, addresses, or participate, encourage, or engage in any doxxing campaign.
EIGHT: Do not intentionally deceive others by impersonating another. This does not apply to satire.
NINE: No person shall use communities.win sites (including kotakuinaction2.win) to solicit, facilitate any transaction, or gift including: ... ATF defined firearms or ammo as defined by the ATF, Bump-stock type devices, Explosives, 3D printing files to produce the aforementioned, controlled substances, Drugs, Alcohol, Tobacco, Stolen goods, Paid services involving physical sexual contact, Personal Information, Falsified Official Documents, Falsified Currency, Fraudulent Services, Pharmaceuticals
TEN: No vote manipulation. Do not break communities.win's features.
ELEVEN: Do not post spam. If you are self-advertising, you must have sufficiently engaged in the sub prior to your post, and you must engage with the users when they comment in your post. Spam will also include repeated messages and comments that are done with no effort to add to the conversation.
TWELVE: Do not post intentional falsehoods or hoaxes. Yes, the Elders of Zion and other such intentionally fabricated documents fall into this. If your POST is arguably false by the user-base, it may be marked as either misleading or unfounded based on it's factual assertions, particularly in the title.
THIRTEEN: If you have reposted something, it will be removed
FOURTEEN: Do not post more than 5 posts a day to this sub.
FIFTEEN: Do not direct particularly egregious identity based slurs at users. A list will be provided
SIXTEEN: Do not attack entire identity groups as inferior, subhuman, inherently morally deficient, biologically/evolutionary mongrel, or participating in a vast conspiracy to take over the world, ala ZOG-NWO / The Patriarchy.
Clown World: King of the Hat
Projectile based single-screen arena brawler where you play as rival clowns pranking each other to find out who is the clowniest. Clowns need hats to be funny and prank so pick one up to shoot the hats off your opponents. Spend too long without a hat and you lose. Make your opponents lose and you win!
The game plays in your browser and requires a keyboard and mouse.
We want to thank everyone who expressed interest and encouragement, whether or not you ended up working with us on the project. Also thanks to the mods for stickying our posts.
And thanks to everyone who playtested our earlier iterations and particularly to anyone who left us feedback, much of which was incorporated into the game. I don't know how many people here have done gamedev but playtesting by members outside of the team is extremely helpful. After working on a project for a long time it is easy to lose awareness of how anyone who hasn't played the thing 1000 times sees it. The fresh eyes of outside testers really help us stay on track toward the ultimate goal of making the game fun.
I'm kicking the idea around of building a pro-Trump 2.5d video game. I'm a developer, not an artist. To see if I want to go through with this, I wanted to try to just animate a single character. Anyone interested in making a sprite sheet of Donald Trump for me? I'll pay you for your time.
The Gulag Archipelago by Alekxandr Solzhenitzyn Volume 1 has won the vote.
You will have a week to obtain a copy and read the first 2 chapters. I imagine this Book is going to provide for some very interesting discussion.
If you have an thoughts or suggestions for the book club please let me know.
I've mentioned before that I have a very large extended family and I got into an argument with a cousin of mine the other day. I generally try to ignore him when he goes on his rants but he was defending CRT and how people are trying to erase history and I couldn't keep silent. Besides being told I'm an Uncle Tom or that I "do the bidding of white supremacists" he gave me the usual talking points that I'm sure everyone has heard ad nauseam.
I asked him who specifically is holding him back, and if he is so concerned about history what is stopping him from getting all the books he wants about whatever topic. Long story short, he stopped talking to me when I said he makes no sense whatsoever, and asked why he doesn't put this energy into helping organizations who work to free victims of slavery/sex trafficking today.
More and more I am very grateful my parents would always tell me that the world owed me nothing and that life is not always fair. I swear a lot of young people seem to be taught that everything will go their way and if it doesn't then you can blame some vague concepts like "systemic racism" or "the patriarchy". Combine that with the endless talk about disparities as if that isn't something that will always occur naturally. Some people have it better than you, some have it worse, some make better choices, and some don't. Life if full of things like that, but there is this ridiculous idea that everything can be perfectly equal if the right people are in power.
I used to think I could open some eyes but I guess I can't, some people are determined to be victims or wallow in their self imposed oppression.
Just an idea, probably not possible, I know.
