3/24/2017 - A little advertisement

A friend of mine was competing in the Site Battle Madness on Forum Promotion, but he was eliminated in the first round. I feel pretty bad about it because he was put up against a forum that has been open for much longer. His forum is called Lazy Forums. It has a lot of potential and already has a pretty solid community. Check it out if you want a new place to hang out by clicking here!

I have added an area of the site for images, mostly images of a humorous nature (hopefully). You can access it via the menu on the left-hand side as always. :)

I am not really sure where I stand on all of this, so I'm opening it up to you guys. Check it out!

3/21/2017 - A word on kindness

Something I was thinking about today is how important it is to be kind. I feel that the world today is very short on kindness. When you turn on the news or look at Facebook, you mostly see people being unkind to each other, yelling at each other, and accusing each other of having unfavorable or nefarious characteristics. People who make fun of others or try to hurt their feelings are viewed quite favorably as being "savage" and "edgy." I think that's a problem.

Looking back on my life, I have fallen short of being kind many times. I feel very bad about those instances, and I wish that I had done things differently. Something really interesting is that when I look back at the times in the past that I have yelled at people or called them names, I cannot think of a single instance where it was productive in any way. Even when I have been met with unkindness from others, it has never served me well to be unkind to them in return. Since being unkind to others will never accomplish anything, it stands to reason that your best option is to be as kind as you can to others at all times.

Some may say that if you are kind to others all the time, you will not be able to stand up for yourself or criticize anything when necessary, but I disagree. Everything that needs to be said can be said in a kind way. For example, if you have a problem with what somebody is doing, stating the problem in a calm but assertive voice is not only a nicer approach but also a more productive one in my opinion. There is quite a difference between being assertive and being aggressive.

Living in a world that glorifies unkindness is becoming increasingly challenging for me. Without getting too political, it speaks volumes that a man who has openly mocked people with disabilities and women was recently elected President of the United States. Is this really the behavior that we want to be encouraging and glorifying? You can call me sensitive and say that I have thin skin, and you are definitely right, but I really think that this is a legitimate problem in our society.

I challenge all of you who are reading this to think about what I have said above. Challenge yourself to be as kind and caring as you can to others even when you are faced with unkindness. Speak only to be helpful and not to be hurtful. Forgive yourself when you fall short of being kind, but make a conscious effort to improve in the future. I know that I will be doing just that. Maybe we can make this world a better place by touching one heart at a time.

3/19/2017 - #BringBackBlink

I am very proud to say that this site will be the main headquarters for a cause in which I believe strongly, the #BringBackBlink campaign! We are planning to start a Change.org petition to reinstitute the most beloved HTML tag of all. Check it out! :)

3/18/2017 - Updates!

As you can see, the font no longer destroys your eyesight quite so badly. As much as I love purple, I must admit that it is hard to read purple font on a black background for a long period of time. That being said, I have changed all the purple text on the site to gray.

In addition to the change to the appearance of the site, I have added the Text and Tutorial sections. They can be accessed via the menu on the left-hand side of the page. My first two text files are some silly writings that I created for a forum that I frequent, and my first tutorial describes how to get Arcanum working on Windows 10. Thank you for visiting, and I hope to add some more inane content soon!

3/16/2017 - Princess MeowsePad's Precious Forum

I have added a forum to the site. There is a link on the menu on the left-hand side of the page. Like the site itself, it will mainly focus on '90s/early 2000s nostalgia and gaming. I hope to see you there!

3/14/2017 - Where are all the good games?

It's no secret that in the past several years, I have become very disillusioned with the direction of games. It seems like games today are all about "breathtaking" graphics and flashy technical mechanics (e.g. bullet travel time, gravity, physics, et cetera). In fairness, it seems like that is the experience that most people who play games in this day and age want.

However, I remember a time that games were much more simple. Did anybody play Ultima Online because of the complexity of the graphics or flashy technical feats? The simple answer is that we did not. We played because it was such an open-ended and player-driven experience. Even multiplayer games today tend to be extremely linear. Go to this town. Do a bunch of quests. Go to this dungeon. Get this item. It almost seems like those kinds of games would be more rewarding to play because there is always something to do next, and the sense of accomplishment should be enough to stop players from losing interest. For me, though, that's just not the case.

In Ultima Online, there was not one "right" way to play the game. If you enjoyed the social aspect of the game, you could become a blacksmith or a tailor and sell things to other players and have a fairly safe experience playing the game. People who thrive on adventure could go crawl dungeons, hunt for treasure throughout the continent, et cetera. Those who found themselves with a thirst for blood could prey on other players in dungeons or in the wilderness. In other words, it was not linear; there was not any "right" way to play the game. Players were free to make the game into what they wanted it to be rather than having the developers of the game choose how players should play the game.

I could go on all day about why I think we lost that freedom, but that is best saved for another time and place. I am feeling nostalgic this evening and just had to speak my peace on this topic. Games are just not what they used to be anymore, and I do not see any signs of that changing anytime soon.
