@  Fire Blazer : (15 January 2017 - 08:58 PM) @Merc sorry I didn't reply to your PM until now, done
@  Fire Blazer : (15 January 2017 - 07:38 PM) I just hope it's reasonably priced, given that Nintendo isn't offering quite as much as PS+.
@  Fire Blazer : (15 January 2017 - 07:37 PM) as for paid online, I'm totally ok with it... I like it actually. I want premium services. paying for a service only makes sense to me, I always thought it was crazy cool how we got online play for free before, lol
@  Fire Blazer : (15 January 2017 - 07:37 PM) ahahaha, silly idiot. now I kinda want to post though. ugh. even during breaks I don't have enough time to do everything I want to
@  Idiot : (15 January 2017 - 07:30 PM) lol I don't blame you.
@  Mercurius : (15 January 2017 - 03:38 PM) though it basically is spam with how I have idiot set to auto-ignore anyway.
@  Mercurius : (15 January 2017 - 03:38 PM) The front page almost looks like a spambot came in or that we're having another forum raid.
@  Blue Leafeon : (15 January 2017 - 01:19 PM) ohno an idiot took over the forums
@  Idiot : (15 January 2017 - 11:29 AM) Love y'all too.
@  Idiot : (15 January 2017 - 11:22 AM) Oh and also filets.
@  Idiot : (15 January 2017 - 11:22 AM) Mornin fellers. Love y'all.
@  Mercurius : (13 January 2017 - 07:07 PM) although I guess to ensure that a sufficient number of people are online at the same time you might have to include both payment options
@  Mercurius : (13 January 2017 - 07:06 PM) instead we have these subscription fees that are only actually worth paying for by super hardcore gamers who basically spend all the time they can on competitive multiplayer
@  Mercurius : (13 January 2017 - 07:05 PM) pay tiny amounts for when you actually feel like going for a try/a session
@  Mercurius : (13 January 2017 - 07:05 PM) I think the only way you would convince me to actually pay for online play is if it was like an arcade machine
@  Blue Leafeon : (13 January 2017 - 05:50 PM) Depends on the price for me. And whether or not there's games worth said price.
@  Mercurius : (13 January 2017 - 04:19 AM) paid online...you won't be seeing me on mario kart or monster hunter
@  Cero : (12 January 2017 - 04:15 AM) https://www.twitch.tv/shadowcero streaming weeb games
@  kirant : (12 January 2017 - 12:40 AM) I'll plug them again, sure. CGPgrey shows many alternatives better than your insane "weighted by state" system.

Ultimately, votes outside the top 2 parties don't matter typically. Again, McMullin was a viable third party candidate for Ohio. Wouldn't have forced a change in president had his supporters come out swinging, sure, but it does show there is appetite for a third party. The deck is just to heavily stacked against it that it took a madman and an unpopular war hawk to even cause it to even "blip" on the radar.

To also add on, I would doubt any third party would really impact results without serious election reform. Single Transferable Votes makes sense IMO, even with its warts...and even if it would be unlikely to change politics in the USA very much without emergence of a third "middle of the road" party.
@  Rujio : (11 January 2017 - 11:49 PM) this is the part where someone plugs those CGP Grey videos about the problems with the first-past-the-post system

*Mostly mainsite staff.

Hey everyone—been a while since the last homepage update. First of all, we're currently working on new features and content for the site. As a starting point, you can now submit your own savegames, and soon, you'll be able to do much more.

However, we also need some help on this front. We're looking for multiple staff positions: a community manager, a PHP coder to help me out, and a content moderator. For more information or to apply, please contact us.

Lastly, as always, please follow our Twitter for all the latest updates on Fire Emblem! Again, you won't find the latest updates on this page unless they're huge! Thanks!

Staff Position Details:

Community Manager - Promote forum activitiy by investing time into new topics and replies as well as helping new members. Later on, there is potential for helping with maintenance and other aspects. Can compensate you for your time with $20 a month.

PHP Coder - Help speed up the coding of PHP elements on the mainsite. This requires a decent level of PHP knowledge as well as free time and flexibility/adaptability with getting used to the site and how I want things to work. It also means I'll have to trust you so I suppose "trustworthiness" is a nice trait to have. Volunteer only--programming is difficult and a meager amount of pay wouldn't be worth it, so if you're going to do it, it would have to be for a greater cause (like helping the Fire Emblem community, which is why I'm doing it).

Content Moderator - This simply involves approving and denying submitted files such as save games, patches, utilities, etc. as we add support for people to submit them to our database. You may have to also make slight changes to them before approving them. For the most part though, it means checking like, once a day and spending 5-10 seconds to approve anything, if there is anything. Once the hack section is up, it will likely take a bit more work to approve and manage projects (due to their bigger nature) but those would only happen once in a while, and said system won't be ready for a while, so it shouldn't be a worry.

Stuff on this forum I could probably manage as I already visit as a part of my regular rotation...but mainsite...not so much. I'm starting a transition to grad studies in the fall (kind of...changing streams is hard so I have to take a boatload of courses just to change departments) and will be working part time (since screw you kirant we only offer one session of each course a year and our schedule is screwed up) so doing mainsite stuff, in addition to working on my own projects and running an entire simulation hockey league, would be a bit much.

I could certainly look advertise a little for these positions elsewhere though.

Zak isn't mainsite staff, but he has so much time on his hands that he'd probably be able to handle the content moderating without a problem. i don't really do anything right now so i could pick up on PHP coding fairly quickly as well. it might be a little while, but i work with coding here and there so i'm sure i could pick it up without a problem.

@Kirant ahh, understandable, thanks for even responding haha. Your continued visit to the forums is, honestly, enjoyable in itself and enough of a "contribution" to me, haha... and I think I discussed that you would make a good mod at one point but you must have declined or it just never happened or something idk

@Zac That would be helpful, are you somewhat familiar with various aspects of hacking and such? And do you feel like you have a good sense of things like proofreading and formatting? That's all it really comes down too--they're not high-leveled skills but if I have to say "no no you should do it X way" constantly then it does defeat the purpose of having you help me is all. If you think you can do it though then hit me up on Skype sometime and I could show you how it works, it's pretty simple and I could probably set up an e-mail system so that you can check your e-mail for new submissions instead of checking every day (would be more efficient since I doubt we'll get many save game submissions for a while/until things pick-up).

Oh and "Zak isn't mainsite staff" is silly to say, you can just become staff lol, that is kind of the point of this. You don't have to be staff to take on a staff position (or else there'd be little point in making this thread haha).

proofreading is my thing actually. i was one of the editors for my school's newspaper back in maryland(and if i wasn't so interested in cooking i'd totally be an english teacher one day). i do have a little experience in the FE hacking world...not a whole lot but i am familiar with the basics if that's what you're asking. next time i see you on skype i'll send you a little message that probably won't be very relevant to anything.

Oh and i thought you were putting this thread up for mostly mainsite staff to read. just a little misunderstanding on my part.

I'd totally be open for content moderation, haha. I may not visit too much, but hopping on once a day and validating stuff is very realistic for my schedule at the moment, and I'd have to visit the site more to do it, probably hitting the forums in the process, so there's that.

haha nah, for mainsite updates though I usually do something like c/p the update to the forums in a topic and link to it on the mainsite (depending on the update, sometimes if there is another relevant link I'll use that instead, but this gives me a place to put more information/details or let people comment)

@Smashed alright I'll keep you in mind
