    Technology Discord

    So I can't help but notice that Discord's staff and support have become incompetent, ignorant and useless. They can't be bothered to ban users who deliberately cause trouble whenever they jump from one server after the next. Even with proof, they won't do a damn thing about it because they want people who run the servers to ban users off instead of the Discord staff actually suspending their accounts altogether. Even before the pandemic happened, their support and staff have become increasingly inconsiderate of their jobs. It's like they're deliberately sabotaging their reputation in order to
  2. Here's a radio site that lets you listen to stations all over the world without the need of traveling: Radio Garden It also has an app for mobile, and it may have ads, though its cheap to have it removed, though actual, radio ads still exist.

    Technology Sites using CAPTCHA?

    Captcha doesn't even deter trolls and bots. It just creates more of an inconvenience than having any sort of benefits. Why does it even exist again if it serves almost no purpose other than obvious annoyance?

    Gaming The 'AO' Rating

    The fact that the AO rating even existed baffles me, since none of the games ever have AO rating at all. Hatred is the only game that has AO rating and even that's considered baffling since pretty much all violent games receive the M rating and nothing else. The ESRB is an absolute joke.
  5. It seems that if you post a comment that contains cursing, it doesn't go through yet for some reason, other people are able to post comments that contains cursing without any issues. It just screams hypocrisy for YouTube.
  6. It's a real shame that, unless there's an alternative site that can definitely put YouTube in their place, YouTube will continue to thrive and get away with it (along with shoving people with invasive ads without the use of Adblock and uBlock), because even with massive lawsuits, Google could very easily pay off lawyers to ensure that YouTube continues on until something big happens to them.
  7. Here's the problem though; YouTube are actually banning the wrong people while letting the trolls roam free. And again, even if they were banned, they can still make new accounts anyway. Of course it isn't going away yet because a lot of people are using it. However, wait until they end up making yet another bad decision that's considered mandatory that will lead to a massive backlash. And the smaller creators get far less views and subscribers, to the point where its impossible to earn money, thanks to the constant, intrusive ads YouTube continues to shove everyone's faces with.
  8. I forgot to mention that if you post comments on YouTube and it contains swearing, it will never go through to the comment section yet you see people having their comments posted with obvious profanity. This is YouTube with their obvious hypocrisy at its finest.
  9. Over the years, YouTube has been gradually getting worse and worse, which ranges from being falsely banned to having videos removed unexpectedly because of "copyright violations", along with not getting paid at all, regardless of the number of views accumulated through videos posted. Let's not forget the comment section which are incredibly hostile and toxic, to the point where YouTube themselves can't be bothered to moderate them, much less ban people for deliberately causing problems. Yet they have no problems in wrongfully banning off people for the most asinine reasons while letting actual
  10. 30 and I feel like I'm no longer amongst the youngsters anymore. I just feel like an outcast among other, younger people who were born in the 2000s, or the late 90s who are still in their 20s, as whatever youth that's left in me is gradually wasting away. Not to mention that I'm not able-bodied to be able to do well at strenuous jobs, especially given the lack of disability benefits where I live in. I could've gotten a kid or two, but I don't have any kind of housing to live in, and it can get stupidly expensive just to be able to raise a kid due to a lack of job.
  11. I sadly don't. I don't have the necessary resources to stream any game, and even then Twitch's awfully restrictive nature when it comes to music makes it all the more difficult to even stream a game without being slapped with a strike.
  12. I'm disappointed that Pixar didn't make Zootopita into either a mini TV series, or an actual TV series, exploring more places Zootopia has to offer, including more animals like kangaroos or koalas (both which are native to Australia with Australian voice actors/actresses), or even locations that weren't included in the movie itself. Feels like a completely wasted potential in all its goodness.
  13. So with Smart TVs (mainly 4k and 8k ones) on the rise, they offer shows, movies, among others, cable TV doesn't show, mainly because the channels you want to watch are locked behind their annoying paywalls so it seems that cable TV is gradually meeting their inevitable demise.
  14. They continue to milk SpongeBob while completely ignoring other, good shows from the 90s and early 2000s altogether. Why Nickelodeon still exists to this day is beyond me.
  15. There are popular films that was made by Pixar, or Disney, yet never bothered to make a sequel at all despite huge successes.
  16. Payday 2 - Can someone tell me why this game is still popular when the devs continue to obsess themselves with egregious DLC content at ludicrious prices, which overall totals almost up to $150 worth of DLCs? Because I basically stopped touching it since 2016 and wow, the amount of DLCs they continue to push yet the Payday community are one of the most overprotective and incredibly toxic ever to exist. This game has completely overstayed its welcome, but of course, the devs will continue to support it, and their community are more than happy to add more fuel to the fire because they like to ca

    Gaming Team Fortress 2

    I stopped playing TF2 since 2018 out of lack of interest and because of the P2W nature, which is something I completely detest about it. Not only that, the overall community in TF2 are overly-defensive and hostile, willing to stir up a s***storm by calling TF2 "the most perfect game ever existed". Like, I'm sorry, but Valve has gotten increasingly selfish and out of touch with their own community that they'll only make a new game whenever they feel like it. Otherwise, they completely ignore their own community altogether. TF2 isn't even fun anymore. The community is just downright defensive an

    Movies/TV Emoji Movie (2017)

    The people who even directed and released The Emoji Movie should be fired. Even Michael Bay makes better movies than this, which is saying something. If any, they shouldn't have released The Emoji Movie when they knew it was going to be disastrous yet did so anyway. If any, this movie should be completely erased from its existence.

    Dark mode

    Dark mode doesn't really use much resources IIRC. Even Discord has dark mode included. Of course, could only wait and see if the admins are willing to add it.

    Dark mode

    Can we have dark mode included in the forums? Looking at the forum index that's obnoxiously bright can be really bothersome to the eyes, especially on newer monitors too. It can also lead to eye strain while reading forum posts.
  21. I stopped playing TF2 because of the P2W nature, along with egregious matchmaking that makes it all the less fun, same for CSGO. I'm not giving them a single dollar for cosmetic stuff that loses their charm after a short time. If they can't introduce in-game credits without the need of having to pay real money for rare items, then Valve is dead to me. They can join EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Rockstar Games, and other devs because eventually, Valve will become a target for lawmakers for their P2W nature.
  22. Remind me again why microtransactions even exist in the first place? Just to fuel the gaming developers' greed?

    Gaming E3 Returns after a year off

    E3 should've left and stayed gone from last year, instead of returning outright.
  24. Disney only cares about money and will only make sequels whenever they feel like it. They don't see Zootopia as successful in their eyes, even though it is. For them, its all about money first, fans and community are always last.
  25. It's amazing that me, who was a longtime PlayStation fan, is being secretly thrown under the bus by Sony. Now I'm just waiting to see whatever money I get so I can try my best to buy the digital games and DLC through PS Store before Sony decides to pull the plug for good. Now I feel like I'm siding with Microsoft because the marketplace for the 360 is still open to buy digital games, even though DLC is rather barebones for certain titles. I cannot believe I'm just being secretly betrayed by Sony.
