What level judge are you? (Aren't there levels of judges?)
 
Well, if he is saying he is of age, then we have to accept that.
 
Do you get paid to do that?
Because that's dope af
 
AS OF RIGHT NOW, LEVEL 0
 
If he asks crap, then he will run into blocks and things.
 
I PLAN ON TAKING MY L1 TEST SATURDAY
 
7:00 PM
@MattGiltaji pfft, you guys wish you were so lucky
 
Good luck @OrigamiRobot!
 
@GnomeSlice YES, BUT NOT A LOT AND USUALLY IN PRODUCT/CREDIT
 
I ain't never deleting my Arqade account. You guys are stuck with me forever.
 
I wish my job paid me in boosters :D
 
@OrigamiRobot That is sufficiently cool to warrant your excusal.
 
7:01 PM
@Frank I knew this day would come.
 
@wipqozn sadness face
 
@Wipqozn You've trained me well, or something
Actually you never trained me at all
You jerk

Christian Teens

Proposed Q&A site for christian teens to who want to glorify God to be able to discuss current events, certain ideas, or want an opinion on something in a safe, clean environment.

Currently in definition.

 
@Unionhawk One who is worthy of the title "The Worst" needs no training.
 
@NewlyOpenedProposalsforEntertainment This sounds very much about opinions.
 
7:05 PM
That would work better as a forum than a QA site
Not a terrible idea, just not good for SE
 
is that you guys making the ping sounds?
 
@djsmiley2k Only if we ping you, like this.
 
hmmm odd D:

@GnomeSlice I have no idea what you're saying to say here.

Yeah, people have family stuff that involves food

You're a great typis

7:12 PM
Yeah I know but they're telling me it's as busy as Christmas
 
@GnomeSlice This is like poetry.
 
OWGNWEOGNWEGOWEN
 
@GnomeSlice I can believe that
 
I'm not convinced, but it is pretty busty
Saturday will be worse i bet
 
@John The IP ban wouldn't take effect if they are of age and just asking crap stuff
 
7:13 PM
I gotta go bAck to work
...soon
 
@AshleyNunn Yes, but I thought the issue here was that they weren't, and were repeatedly making new accounts to get around old ones being deleted.
 
@John Well, now they are saying that they are, apparently.
So things get stickier.
 
When I see @GnomeSlice have phone troubles, I can't help but wonder if he's really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like...

@Fluttershy good times.
 
Because that is seriously what I think of when I see poetry like, "Rafter is apparently lynx the nudity time of year at a horse store"
 
7:22 PM
Can we have that permanently put somewhere on the site please?
 
@ChaseC Have which?
 
@AshleyNunn Rafter is apparently lynx the nudity time of year at a horse store
 
@ChaseC It's here, and chat is googleable

7:23 PM
We live in a grand time don't we?
 
@John I suppose this is also an option. :)
 
@AshleyNunn :)
 
(I tend to forget we have that post!)
 
Is anyone else here getting the Could not connect to the Steam network error?
 
7:26 PM
Hmm....
Wonder why I can't connect then :P
 
@RPiAwesomeness maybe you're not online
 
@murgatroid99 No, I'm online. I can load Steam pages, but Steam won't launch
And it was working ~45min-1hr ago
 
@RPiAwesomeness have you retried the connection?
 
This is weird. Rebooting
@murgatroid99 Yes.
 
Have you followed the troubleshooting tips?
 
7:28 PM
Reset my WiFi adapter, quit Steam & started it again. Nothing seems to be working :P
 
Then reboot is probably your best bet
 
That directly contradicts your statement here: "im olny 12 and extreamly proud of it why are you guuys being so mean". We have to take that at face value. How would you explain that? — Frank 27 secs ago
The link is 10K only.
 
Yup. Reboot fixed it.
If at first you don't log in, re-log, reboot, restart
 
@Frank cc @AshleyNunn
 
@Frank It's interesting that the username was anonymized, but the delete message still shows the original username
 
7:32 PM
@John I already flagged it. We'll see what comes of it, as I think it's going to be up to the statements they make.
@murgatroid99 Probably a string value, for exactly cases like this, so that delete messages aren't lost when accounts are.
 
@Frank I mean that the delete message should probably also have been anonymized
for consistency
 
Huh. Interesting.
 
@murgatroid99 Probably. I don't know what COPPA requires, though.
 
@Frank It just doesn't make sense to change a username without changing all instances of that username
I'm just going to go report a bug
 
@murgatroid99 Well, do they change a username? Or just delete it?
I think it's just a deletion.
 
7:36 PM
@Frank I mean that the deleted user's username appears as "user12345" in the comments and "Assley Gaming" in the delete message. That's not sensible behavior
 
@Frank I've poked it up the chain to those who deal with it.
 
@murgatroid99 Unless it's done by design, as delete messages would be more important than comment sources.
 
As they're already aware of the priors, and I informed aobut new stuff today.
 
@AshleyNunn Hopefully something does; this is the third time, and he doesn't seem to be getting the hint.
 
@Frank I'm not saying they should get rid of the deletion messages. I'm just saying that they should display usernames consistently
 
7:37 PM
@Frank Well, we handled the other two, he just happens to keep trying.
So i am making sure that the people who do the things are aware, and will take action as appropriate.
 
@AshleyNunn Yep. Sadly, there's nothing else we can do, if we believe someone is circumventing the age restriction.
 
@Frank Yeah, there's nothing to be done unless they admit outright, but I've mentioned the priors, and it will be handled as needed once people who do the things look at it and make whatever decision.
Us poking at it and needling at the kid isn't going to help matters.
 
@AshleyNunn That's all I ask. We do our diligence to bump it up the chain, and let the higher ups deal with it.
 
@Frank Which is done now :)
 
@AshleyNunn No, that was more since he didn't seem to understand why his accounts kept getting deleted. Which I suspect he probably got in an email, too, but hard to tell, since I don't know (and don't need to) the whole process.
At this point, I am content to leave it in their hands.

Q: How can I get to the chests?

npstIn A Wizard's Lizard, there's the occasional room per dungeon with a special chest made unavailable by blocking rocks. Here's one from the second stage, but I've seen a golden one early on regularly. How should I be able to get those chests? Is flying an option in this game? Bombs, maybe? What...

 
@Lazers A Wizards's Lizard? Is that actually a game name?
 
@Frank Yes, it is. Was even in a humble bundle recently
 
@5pike ...huh.
 
@Frank No email, I think. SE isn't allowed to posess the mail address of a child younger than 13.
 
@MadScientist Yeah, COPPA makes things tricky.
 
7:46 PM
@MadScientist Not without written parental request that is.
Although... that doesn't apply to people outside the US iirc
 
I've no clue how it really works, but SE employees have a button that nukes all information about the user. They're not allowed to keep anything that is PII.
@Powerlord SE is inside the US, so they have to obey it
 
@Frank Yup, I got it for my birthday last week.
 
The trials and tribulations of getting a new hire set up to build the code.
 
@Unionhawk that is how the kitty do.
 
7:56 PM
@5pike I seem to have missed that.
 
@MBraedley new hires always seem to find new problems with set up.
 
For some reason since yesterday, any time I try to actually think and make a decision, I instead just start listening to a kazoo rendition of the Ducktales Moon theme.
 
@GraceNote Well, that's kinda an awesome thing, even if it means you don't get things done....
 
Hullu bridge.
 
@MBraedley On an unrelated note, if my boss actually approves me going back to working on ETOR, I need to find out who has the current SVN url for it.
 
@GraceNote Yay!
 
Thanks Arperum. The wizards-lizard-wiki is sub-par
 
ETOR is an app I codeveloped several years ago for a different agency, but I lost a lot of the information about it during the Windows XP to Windows 7 migration.
glares at ES
er
 
@GraceNote That's impressive
 
Now I suspect I will be stuck in a kazoo-listening land for a while...
 
8:01 PM
@GraceNote i didn't want to, but now I am. thanks.
 
Enterprise Security, when they did the WinXP to Win7 switch, decided to delete all executables on a PC. And for whatever reason, every svn, git, or hg directory their script found.
 
@GraceNote Now I need to listen to this too.
 
@Wipqozn better.
smooth mcgroove is a king.
 
@Wipqozn And so the cycle continues
 
@Wipqozn I love that YouTube has made one-person, multi-part acapella a thing

Q: How can I be a Playboy Shep?

blainehSo there are a lot of good questions about romancing in these games, and the Romance Guide on the Wiki is awesome. A lot of it assumes that things stay pretty monogamous though, even if it is a serial sort of monogamy. But what if you wanted to be a completely Playboy Shep? That is, having as ma...

 
@Lazers wait. wat.
 
@Wipqozn You also need to listen to this.
 
@Powerlord I'm not clicking a Rebecca Black link
 
> @Wipqozn You also need to listen CAUTION: REBECCA BLACK LINK (to this).
 
@MBraedley Oh hush you.
 
8:06 PM
@Powerlord It was so obvious
I get +10 to Rebecca Black detection
 
Don't make me write my own redirector
Or embedder
 
@Powerlord Redirector links are followed.
 
@murgatroid99 O.o Hot damn.
 
8:08 PM
@Unionhawk @KevinvanderVelden I PLAN ON MAKING MY OWN JOYSTICK FOR ED
 
OHSNAP
 
@murgatroid99 man I haven't played touhou in months... I need to see if I can find it again.
 
@Lazers wat
 
@Unionhawk IT'S RELATIVELY EASY, APPARENTLY
 
8:09 PM
@Rapitor I've never even played the game. I just really like that song
 
@npst No problem! If you have any other questions, I'll see what I know, I'm still learning myself. Furthest point I reached was entering the second bossfight and dieing to the first attack.
 
@murgatroid99 series is only good if you like bullet hells and getting owned.
 
@murgatroid99 This is one of his better ones.
 
@murgatroid99 I mostly know this as "the thing people keep thinking "Faerie's Aire and Death March played according to the sheet music" is
 
it makes dark souls look like a cakewalk
 
8:10 PM
@AshleyNunn No, that's this:
 
I just almost asked someone about the "SVN to TF2 conversion"
 
I think
 
@Wipqozn That is impressive.
 
Pro*C will be the death of me. That's the biggest holdup on the new hire right now.
 
instead of SVN to TFS
 
8:10 PM
@murgatroid99 Which is also a version of U.N Owen Was Her, as it says in the description
 
@OrigamiRobot Sweet
 
@AshleyNunn oh, right
 
and is in NO way the actual Death Waltz
 
Including or excluding yaw axis?
 
8:11 PM
I think it's a remix to make it even harder to play, though
 
@murgatroid99 Yeah, but it isn't Faerie's Aire and Death Waltz by John Stump no matter how hard people say it is
 
@Unionhawk I FOUND A JOYSTICK HID DESCRIPTOR FOR LEONARDO AND A SHELL PROGRAM THAT BASICALLY JUST NEEDS CODE FOR THE INPUT INTERFACES.
 
@murgatroid99 I want his beard.
 
Neat
2 or 3 axis?
 
SUPPORTS 8 AXES AND 32 BUTTONS
 
8:12 PM
Oh snap
 
So you could do as fancy as 3 axis stick, throttle, and lateral thrust in all directions
 
I COULD, PLUS SEPARATE AXES FOR HEADLOOK IF I WANTED
 
8:13 PM
Sure
 
NOT SURE HOW I WANT TO LAY IT OUT YET
2 STICKS VS STICK + THROTTLE
 
That's like twice as fancy as my setup
 
@Rapitor This was written to test player pianos.
 
@StrixVaria and make your ears bleed with catchy tunes
 
@Rapitor Yeah it's a good mix of catchy and horribly dissonant.
 
8:16 PM
I'LL PROBABLY USE THAT LOGITECH JOYSTICK AS A BASE
 
Even still, twice as fancy
Up to
At least
 
Speaking of which, is it this weekend that MLP season 5 starts?
 
@Powerlord yes
 
@murgatroid99 Yay.
 
@StrixVaria Yeah, I keep going "I like this" then a terrible dissonant chunk pops out and ruins things
 
8:18 PM
Now I have to figure out if I even get the channel its broadcast on
 
@Powerlord Love that song.
 
@Powerlord It's Discovery Family
 
I didn't when it was still The Hub
 
MLP isn't Hub anymore? TIL
 
I don't know if I get it, for that matter
@Wipqozn The Hub isn't the Hub anymore
 
8:18 PM
2 STICKS WOULD BE INSPIRED BY THIS
 
@murgatroid99 TIL
 
@OrigamiRobot i want that controller
 
@Wipqozn It was a few months ago
Also, season 6 was announced a few days ago

Q: How do I play N64 virtual console games in widescreen on Wii U?

NolonarI just bought Donkey Kong 64 on Wii U (Virtual Console version) and realised it's got black borders everywhere. The left and right side are especially large. I thought I could fix it by activating Widescreen mode in the Options in-game, but all it does is squish the graphics, so they don't look ...

 
@MattGiltaji I HAVE IT, BUT I DON'T WANT TO TEAR IT UP FOR THIS
 
8:21 PM
ERRHORROR
 
Plus, that yaw axis, especially in a vulture, is awesome to have
 
@OrigamiRobot why anyone break something so awesome?
 
HORRORERROR
 
@badp ok?
 
8:24 PM
@Rapitor ERRORROR
 
:|
 
dude I've worked 12½ hours today and you expect me to make sense
 
@BADP IS ERROR.
 
@badp Stop working 12 hours/day. That's unhealthy.
 
@Arperum My colleagues are doing this regularly. I've been able to avoid that, but today we were doing our first release, so I decided to stay longer.
 
8:29 PM
@badp in the immortal words of @GnomeSlice
1 hour ago, by GnomeSlice
Thuds had sadness to go by proxy sucker
 
@badp Valid reason.
 
8:41 PM
Interesting concept. Seems to be kinda along the lines of Cross Edge.

Q: Are all weapon types equal until you choose a weapon talent?

npstI know that when leveling up you sometimes get the option to choose a weapon proficiency. Until then, does my character fight equally well with each weapon class? Does the same answer hold true for recruited characters, so that i.e. Aloth (who doesn't have any weapon related skills) can fight eq...

Q: Image on monitor shifted to the right

Nick BailucI am playing my Sega Dreamcast and it natively supports VGA. When I plug it in to my monitors back port the image is shifted way to the right. When I try to move it more to the left in the settings I can see more of it but a good 4cm is still not shown. This screen is 1920-1080 and 32". When I pl...

 
Man, there is nothing in the Club Nintendo Elite Status gifts that I want. I either have it, played it and traded it, or don't care.
 
@Frank I think there was some big blowback because people were expecting Fire Emblem-ish gameplay (a.k.a tactics).
Which is kinda weird if you think about it, considered this was announced at the same time as the new Fire Emblem game.
 
@Yuuki I wasn't paying attention to that. But when you do crossovers, you can't expect exact gameplay.
 
Why would they try to compete for sales with themselves?
@Frank I 'unno, Hyrule Warriors plays almost identically to Dynasty Warriors.
 
8:56 PM
@Yuuki Which is a happy surprise.
When you have both a tactical RPG (Fire Emblem), and a more traditional RPG (Megami Tensei), blending the two requires some compromises.
 
I think people were also annoyed because it felt more like a Persona crossover than a SMT crossover.
