6:00 PM
@AttackingHobo I did not say I would keep lost stuff.
I am talking about the criminals who are doing it. I also completed my discussion anyone want to see in the pastebin?
 
6 mins ago, by PsychO PhobiA
Who wants to give it back at all?
@PsychOPhobiA why not
 
@AttackingHobo Yeah but thats a question not a statement
@AttackingHobo "Why not"?
 
why not give it back
 
its a rhetorical question. Which is nearly the same thing as making a statement
 
Someone call them both: "Hey, can you beat $52. Ok cool, I'll call you back in just a moment."
It's like the bargain hunting of donations
 
6:02 PM
Anyone want to see my disscussion or not
 
what kind of discussion?
 
The Christopher Columbus discussion
 
aint nobody got time fo' no history channel
unless it's ancient aliens
 
for school?
 
Ah come on guys its the truth
Please????
 
6:04 PM
Ancient Aliens is awesome
 
Ancient aliens FTW
 
@PsychOPhobiA I already said "why not?" link it man
 
@PsychOPhobiA try spicing it up with some ancient aliens
 
@PsychOPhobiA just post it - someone will have a look. If you ask first, nobody will volunteer
 
I will post on pastebin hold on
Okay there you guys go. Click the link above
 
6:06 PM
 
@MickLH you were right, our advice to psycho backfired
 
You guys read it?
 
@PsychOPhobiA yes
 
How is it?

A: Are questions asking how to find where game engines have the code for different things on-topic?

SpartanDonutAbsolutely not. I don't think it matters what the content or circumstances around the question are. I cannot think of an example of a question along the lines of "Where is the code for X?" isn't an XY problem. The following example scenario was provided as a counter argument to this: "I may k...

 
6:09 PM
nearly unsalvageable
 
If you voted for Josh's answer please read the comments on his answer and read my answer and vote accordingly.
 
@AttackingHobo What you mean?
 
It is bad, and will be hard to fix.
 
I also excluded that he explored the Americas in which I fixed up.
Hard to fix and how is it bad?
That is what the teacher wanted to know.
 
What is your writing prompt?
 
6:11 PM
????
 
@PsychOPhobiA how old are you? That's important because I don't know what standard to expect
 
I am 13
All of my class mates are 12 and 13
in 8th grade now
 
it's fine
 
ok that changes things a bit
 
I feel like I've read this essay a million times
 
6:13 PM
@SpartanDonut first vote!
 
YEAH! HIGH FIVE!!
 
When you quote things, make sure you cite them.
 
It is just crazy when it seems people don't read their history
Oh
okay I will fix that up but can I go eat first?
 
lol
kid what the fuck
 
Also you don't have to begin a quote with "I will quote"
 
6:14 PM
we're not your parents
 
of course, eat! you can't do history when you starved
 
Oh well ima go eat and thanks guys!
 
Because he asked, I kind of want to say. No, finish the essay first.
lol
 
you can go skydiving for all we care lol
 
Just for fun, lets also run it through hemmingway
 
6:15 PM
@Noctrine hmm?
 
man this reminded me of this ultra-studious colleague of mine
asking the prof something like
"prof is there a problem if I also write..."
then he got interrupted by someone else saying
"write whatever you want dude, nobody cares"
lol
 
Oooo, he writes at a 9th grade level (according to this app)
 
it's the single most honest response I've heard
 
@Noctrine wait really? that's a 9th grade level?
 
6:17 PM
Had a similar situation, but it was about essay length. The professor ultimately said if we could explain the particular economic theory in a paragraph we were more than welcome.
 
perhaps I should try to find one of my essays from when I was that age, see what it looked like
I might be holding unreasonable standards here
 
it looks more like 6th grade to me but that's common for 8th graders nowadays
at least here
 
@PsychOPhobiA remove or fix. " I will quote " "Also " "If anyone has they are wrong and they need to understand the truth in history not false history." "Here is an link to very good source,"
 
@IcyDefiance You probably are.
 
communist elementary books made use of and implicitly kids had a richer vocabulary than today's high schoolers
it was mostly propaganda
but it was written in a clean and rich Romanian
 
6:19 PM
I just read a lot of fiction books and got my vocabulary from that. then I lost my vocabulary when I discovered the internet. now I just swear at people and tell them they're wrong all the time. :D
 
@Noctrine thanks for the reference to the hemmingway app, this is a lot easier
 
Video games helped me destroy some friends in Taboo.
 
Pip
@AlexM. nope, looks like sixth grade to me
being a high-schooler myself
 
@PsychOPhobiA The sentence - "The reason that none of the history text books never explained how Christopher Columbus exploration lead to the Americas was because no one could really explain it and that it just sounded very confusing." is terrible.
 
@Noctrine hold up, that grade level is "the lowest education level needed to understand your text"
it's not the level of the writing itself
 
6:22 PM
@Noctrine that sentence itself is confusing
 
Its very easy to inflate that number though
Longer words, and longer sentences usually do it
 
Trying to help Psycho is noble and I absolutely support it, but stepping back and seeing the gamedev chat help with an essay for a history class seems weird...
 
I really love this tool already
 
@AttackingHobo just mash the keyboard for a few lines.
 
I always type things to people, and worry if I'm going above their reading level
 
6:24 PM
@Christoph we're bored and this is mildly interesting. it's not that weird.
 
@Almo I'm pretty sure
it's wrong
 
Christoph makes a good point. Pscyho, I want a followup essay explaining why this is relevant to GameDev on my desk tomorrow.
 
@Christoph game dev is a very wide field. For a lot of us, nearly everything is interesting to some point
 
grammatically
 
Found a few good resources today
- http://www.game-icons.net/ - Lots of simplistic icons for buff/buttons/interface.
- http://www.xnview.com/en/xnconvert/ - Completely free imageformat converter, which i used to convert .dds to .png.

6:25 PM
@IcyDefiance yes, I absolutely understand that. I'm also procrastinating
 
@William'MindWorX'Mariager star'd
Ok people gotta do some major brain work. Be back later
 
@AttackingHobo true, a good game usually has a good story, and they usually have a made-up in-game "history".
 
@William'MindWorX'Mariager dang it, I wish I had that second one before. when I wanted to convert png to dds I made my own GUI for a command line program just to allow me to run batches with it. -.-
 
I wonder, what the Americas would have been called if Columbus wasn't so thick.
 
@IcyDefiance Hehe
It's rare to find an image converter that's actually free without any catches.
It actually also performs other batch operations. Like resize/crop/frame/add text/etc.
 
6:28 PM
@Noctrine Land
I'd call any land Land
with an index attached to it
