  1. General Chat/Time-Waster Thread

    Forums and chats serve different purposes. They both have their uses. I don't mind the Discord chats and the application, because you can be very specific about the organization within them. Also with who is allowed in them, to begin with, as long as they're not public invite.
  2. Rant: Steam doesn't need quality control

    I kind of had a feeling this thread was going to devolve into whiny bitch rants about violence versus sex in games, like the second it was put up. And lo and behold, it only took an hour. Good job, team. We did it.
  3. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    Your Sunrider video was full of naked anime girls. Yes.
  4. Tim Hortons and Bitcoin Megathread

    <mod post> This is your reminder to keep all content outside of the Red Lantern PG-13. This is also your reminder to just report rule-breaking posts instead of quoting them. </mod post>
  5. Out comes a massive hangover. In goes three crack pipes, a case of Mountain Dew, and a membership to a vegan nutrition system.
  6. Artist gripes

    Idk if it would help in your case at all, but I just have a rules page up before people are able to ask me questions. I force the mobile theme to override to my default theme, so people still get the rules ask page when they want to ask a question. I just don't accept requests, period, unless they involve my characters and only my characters. Anyone who takes issue with that can either offer me an equal-effort art trade, or learn how to draw the thing, themself.
  7. Artist gripes

    So just tell them to either pay you or go fuck themselves. I ward off this problem by just being upfront that I'm not gonna take anyone's shit.
  8. Okay. But that's not what the thread is about. It's about a squabble between entirely different people. I was about to just tell you to take this shit to your journal, because that's the impression the title gives off.
  9. Why is the title some emo 14-year-old girl shit, when the thread itself is about chat drama though?
  10. New Themes

    Welcome to 2018, Phoenixed. We have two new themes for you to kick off the new year. Phoenixed Ash: A light, neutral white and black theme. No more theme colors clashing with media posts. Pitch Black: A dark, neutral black and gray theme. Something that's been highly requested. Good for avoiding burning out your retinas at 2 in the morning. Additional changes: All themes: Avatars and images in posts have no borders now, and respect transparency. No more ugly perimeters around transparent art. Midnight Blue: Previously named "Phoenixed Midnight." Colors have been fixed, so the theme is no longer completely unusable. A lot of my customizations required manual fixing with CSS. IVPB's basic editor is extremely limited. Because of this, there's a very big chance that I missed a spot or two. If you see anything that needs my attention (like visibility problems for text), please screenshot it, take note of exactly where it is and what it applies to, and either PM me about it or mention me in this thread with the problem. Themes, as always, can be accessed from the menu at the bottom of the page: Ideas and suggestions for existing or new themes are welcome in the thread.
  11. New Themes

    I mean, I could look into the code, but as far as the theme works on my end, it uses all of the screen real estate. That's the entire width of my screen. It also adapts based on how wide I keep the browser, so I know it's not a fixed, absolute width.
  12. New Themes

    It should be built the same way as the other desktop themes. On my end, and even in the example screenshot I posted, it has the right sidebar. If it's single-column, it's probably your browser.
  13. Horrifically Bad Fursuits

    <mod post> Please don't post multiple, separate posts in rapid succession. It's considered spammy, and the edit function exists for a reason. Merged. </mod post>
  14. You're taking my use of "inferior" as too literal. My point was that it's using personal biases to exclude people based on traits that are harmless to them or anyone else. If they were passing judgment on no one other than themselves, there would be no conflict of interest here, and there would be no exclusions. Whether or not they're doing this because of religious beliefs is irrelevant. It's still passing judgment on a group of people on those grounds, and acting exclusionary towards them because of it. That is fact. That is what they are doing. Which is, as I have said, an extremely shitty thing to do. If I said I wasn't going to serve Christians in my place of business, is that legal in factual terms? Arguably. Would I deserve to be chewed out for doing that by the public? Absolutely. I don't care what someone believes in as it applies solely towards themself, but religion isn't an excuse to act shitty towards groups of people that aren't harming anything.
  15. Games you played,but forgot the name of.

    Looking it up on Wikipedia, the idea sounds similar enough. I just specifically remember the character having dreadlocks (like a witch doctor) and something about a heart being cut out, and that having something major to do with the character. I specifically think it had to do with his wife or family being massacred or sacrificed or something. But my memory could also just be shit.
  16. Games you played,but forgot the name of.

    There was some game I played around the same time I first started playing Soul Reaver. PS1 game, something about collecting souls or some shit. You warped between levels via portals. You were a witch doctor. I just remember that, for the longest time, I just kept thinking that it was Soul Reaver, because the games and their atmospheres were incredibly similar. But it wasn't.
  17. You could replace "gay" with "straight," or "Christian," or "black," or anything else like this, and get the same negative reaction for good reason. A cake maker decides to deny putting a black child's face on his birthday cake, because in his religion, blacks are an inferior people. Do you know how fucked up that sounds? Because it is. It's fucked up. I don't really have an opinion about the legality involved, but the people making these business decisions should be shamed for their bullshit.
  18. Net Neutrality Getting Repealed Owns

    The user in question got banned for spamming links to testosterone supplements, and banned again for ban-evading. I wouldn't overthink their opinions too much. Either it's a bot, or a troll.
  19. Toxic Victim Mentalities

    I mean, I don't know how your relationships have functioned. But you can both in the same person.
  20. This is your Trump megathread. Keep all Donald Trump and Trump policy-related debates and discussions to this thread. Any new ones created (and a few prior existing ones) will be closed or merged with this thread. DO NOT: Throw personal insults at other users in this thread, for their political beliefs or otherwise. Air personal drama related to the users in conversation rather than the actual thread topic. Shitpost in this thread. Anyone who does will receive an automatic infrac.
  21. Toxic Victim Mentalities

    The best way I've found to stave off Professional Victims is just to agree with their attention-seeking bullshit. "Yes, you look fat. Yes, you're being annoying. Yes, I don't like you when you're being annoying by doing this." Sure, they may throw a tantrum about it, but fuck em. If you want my honest opinion on something in a calm manner, I will give it to you. But don't try to manipulate me into telling you what you want to hear. It just doesn't work that way, and I'm quite the asshole when I feel like I'm being forced into something stupid.
  22. Things that you hate! v2

    I mean, there are plenty of file-dumping services that don't require you to make an account. You just have to copy the link afterwords.
  23. Things that you hate! v2

    Just dropbox it? Or Megaupload. Or whatever the kids are using nowadays.
  24. Things That You Don't Understand!

    There's a name for this sort of thing.
