    Just realized that Kuromorimine Academy got its name from the Schwarzwald. Maybe this should be the Panzer Vor thread I dunno.
  2. Only thing more youtube would be banning established creators without warning to make room for mainstream corporate content.

    Did it go full "complex motives"?
  5. Here's a challenge:


    Start a browser in private browsing, for a fresh history.

    Go to youtube without logging in.

    Repeatedly watch whatever video you want, then return to the front page, making note of the recommeneded videos.

    Your score is the number of videos required before Family Guy stops being recommended.

    Lower scores are better.


    Hard Mode: Get rid of late night talk shows, movie trailers, and sports shows too.


    Impossible Mode: Get rid of bullshit clickbait list videos.

      Just to be fair I tried this myself, with the impossible challenge.  It's technically possible because the browser I use with months of history doesn't get any of those videos.  But I gave up on a fresh history after 160 videos.


      The interesting thing about it is that it feels like youtube is actively taunting you.  You'll get an almost perfect slate of recommendations, with one offending video (often the family guy asian drycleaner video, or the brian forced mating one).  Then you watch another video, come back to the main page, and nearly every single recommendation is stuff you'd get on a fresh browser, with nothing whatsoever related to what you've been watching.

      Yeah my usual account will pass it all, but damn you have to go far before Youtube stops telling you Brain forced mating is something you want to see.

      On Edge, not logged in, with a search for "Ok Go I won't let you down" and watch of the first video, I went back to the home page and not a single Family Guy or Fortnite clip.


      However upon my next search (siivagunner, picked first clip) and returning to the home screen, Asian dry cleaner first in line. Unreal.

  7. For a year I had my school have a misspelling of my name in their database. Literally every form I had to fill out came back with my spelling "corrected." It wasn't even the usual misspelling that everyone tends to make.

    Wait you actually watched the show and still post here. Can you give me a dose of sanity and confirm that the ending made no sense since...:

    Yes, exactly. If 3D really is better than those should be universally amazing.

    Disney and Netflix are doing their best to prove that 2D > 3D.

    Mirrodin/Kamigawa standard was shit. Ravnica/Time Spiral standard was awesome. Lorwyn/Alara standard was shit. I think you may be on to something here.

    Valve used to be one of the most innovative companies, but now they just get sloppy seconds on every new fad.

    ITT Post Virtual Youtubers

    Recently my Youtube recommended feed has started sending me recommendations for more and more obscure virtual youtubers. The more I click, the weirder stuff comes up later. So I thought it might be interesting to see how long we can keep a thread going where each post needs to have a video from a different virtual youtuber. With the opening post I suppose that I have to start with the most obvious example of all, Miss Kizuna AI: I'll leave the other obvious ones for other people though.

    This is about as far from innovation in Vtubing as you can get but I found it cute:

  16. There was a forum that I used to frequent that specifically cultivated political flamewars, all for clicks. A former mod actually leaked internal policies on a different site. The highest rank of mods were required to have at least three accounts (the "official" account, and two accounts that would take opposing sides in arguments). Whenever a discussion settled down it was the duty of a mod to say something inflammatory to get lots of responses. When someone actually made good points and got people to agree with each other, that poster would be banned. (Just to be cheeky, the two most common reasons for bans were "possession of alt accounts" and "trying to incite a flamewar"). Apparently the model worked well enough for them to stay in business, because they got a lot of advertising revenue.

    In which we post the randomest shit we find on YouTube.

    In the continuing file of "what the fuck is this timeline" I can't believe that this is a real thing that happened: Next year we'll find out that the picture was taken by JJ Abrams.
  18. Newgrounds has gotten so much traffic due to this that the site literally can't handle it. What an age we live in.

    lol what a weeb.
  20. It looks like Tumblr is using an automated system to detect porn. But like all modern algorithms it's just trained from data sets without any explicit instruction about what makes porn porn and so gives out a lot of false positives based on color. Anything remotely flesh colored? Obviously porn. Post in gray scale? This must be one of those hentai manga. EDIT: Source: Random people from multiple websites which aren't Tumblr and who probably don't know what the hell they're talking about.
  21. No one wants a site to "foster more constructive dialogue among our community members." That phrase is largely meaningless anyway since "you can bitch about our policies and we'll tell you why you're wrong before we ban you" is technically a sort of constructive dialogue.
