How is this board related to /qa/(4chan)?

Oh no, someone is going to be VERY upset at that thin Yuno!
I just woke up so my mind is a bit foggy and unmotivated, but the gist of things is that once upon a time /qa/ was a good board (2015) and then it became a bad board (late 2015-2016) and then through some communal cleaning, bots, the power of positive thinking and people switching from "why does 4chan suck" to "let's instead make /qa/ our version of a good 4chan" it became a good board again in early 2017 with a strange "retirement home" like atmosphere combined with chaos. It ended up with a 2D/Random (nijiura) flare because it seemed to be unifying interest of people there (/jp/-aligned people love meta it turns out). Then in 2019 it became a bad board again when mods decided to flex their muscle for the final time and went nuclear with rangebans, even against people that were merely regular posters posting stuff that simply wasn't the new type of /qa/ they envisioned.
Long story short, this is the older /qa/ that most people don't actually know about. I guess I typed more than I thought I would.

This is missing the stuff that happened afterwards though. We stayed there for three more years and finally moved to kissu once the mods started going full hotpockets and deleting/banning a lot of things at random and rangebanning posters. We don't have anything to do with the soyjak spamming vultures that came afterwards and caused its closure. So it has been 4 years since we started using kissu.

Server isn't up

We're fast-approaching the time of year where plenty of people are available, and there's a lull in media content to keep people entertained. So, I was thinking it'd be a great time to start up a Factorio server and play with Kissu! The plan is to play on a really big modpack known as Space Exploration which should ensure the server lasts a long while, and also that every person can be helpful even if they're new and it's late into the game. You see, this particular Factorio modpack revamps and expands Factorio beyond the typical endgame where you need to build a rocket out of the world, to where you will now need to escape the entire stellar cluster! Utilizing multiple planets and a space base in the process to reach this goal, Space Exploration forces the players to learn every aspect of it to keep their factory properly running. Especially with the added feature of bot decay which really changes the dynamic of the late game.

With all that said, I think it'd be good to get a head start and begin to discuss things related to Factorio related to optimizing Factories, or maybe even teaching new players/people that want to test things out how it all works. There's a lot to learn about the game and it can make it feel a bit daunting to new people at the start, so if you want to try starting up a world and seeing what makes sense and what doesn't initially I highly recommend it! Also remember that the server will be a group effort so there's no need to worry if you're not particularly good at one aspect since others should be able to help out as well!

I'll be available in the steam chat ( https://s.team/chat/NUIbnP7U ) to give anyone who may want to try out the game a copy, or you can pirate it and download the mods yourself if you so wish to do so. I plan on actually opening up the server sometime a little after Christmas, so there should be plenty of time to talk in here before then.

This is probably one of the best additions they've announced so far. Making refueling stations for each deposit/drop-off caused so many unnecessary headaches in getting the fuel all around up until you have bots capable of doing it, and even then sometimes you'd have the conditions for coming and going from stations be fulfilled causing the trains to eventually blow past stations too fast to refuel and then run low while in the middle of the tracks. Even more than that though, you could probably make an entire train system based on interrupts and the new grouping system for trains will make scaling up infrastructure a breeze if adjusting a group will adjust the path for an entire system of trains. Probably will be amazing to combine this with switches.

How do you feel about all the different versions of Miku? Does it get on your nerves if people don't stick to a general mold of the character that feels appropriate or are you fine with the artists vision being expressed through her freely? I'm more in the latter camp since I feel it fits better with vocaloids in general being for people to make their own music with, and not for people to make music for the vocaloid.

It does seem that way compared to old characters. I didn't buy her, though, so I wonder if it's the 'free character of the week' thing where you get to demo characters. I've never liked characters that are simply strong, though, because they're boring. She's basically just a stronger version of Kae, but also one that's less fun because there isn't double-dipping with specifics cards and the hyper is boring as well.

Sugu is just probability. If you crunched the numbers, you'd have seen she was the character most likely to win in the long run. Her victories just leave a mark because her results are almost always either winning big or losing big, which is what makes her fun to play.

True, but the breadth of well-informed stuff vs generic lewd is so wide that I think it's unreasonable to disregard the latter. Affectionate + in-character sex is great. But sometimes a wank is just a wank, and good art of some random girl you stumbled across will suffice.
That's why original characters are best.

With that attitude you might as well be yourself on the spot.

The sort of doom-and-gloom extreme pessimism you espouse in your post is very easy to fall into; it happens to me all the time. But at the end of the day, it's simply not a constructive mindset to have. Nothing is accomplished by worrying about things that you have no control over, even when they are worrisome.

>Nothing is accomplished by worrying about things that you have no control over, even when they are worrisome.
That's the thing though. Up until a few years ago I did have some control. It has been taken away from me and everyone else because we've been kicked out and excluded from a community we started and built. All in the name of control.

You're advocating that we do nothing and don't fight back against this. Well if that's your stance you should be overjoyed. Since most people have decided to quit and there is less and less original content coming out of every community each year. This is fine for people that don't mine being datamined and getting recycled content. For the rest of us it's a huge problem.

>If everything is on fire sitting in the middle of the room and thinking "this is fine" gets you nowhere.
That's not what I'm suggesting at all, although I could totally see how you got that from my post. Sorry for the lapse in communication.

I was trying to say is that you need to calm down and think about the situation to the degree that your actions can have tangible outcomes. Using myself as an example, I'm very pro-privacy and anti-censorship, so I use and advocate for things that improve both. For example, I use Tor for every website I can, and I tell others that they should too. I'm deeply afraid of attempts to reduce my privacy and access to information, but it does no good to think about a theoretical future where I have none beyond the extent to which it impacts my current course of action.

It's the difference between seeing fire and saying "the whole building is going to be on fire soon we're all gonna die!" and "I should grab the fire extinguisher".

What are /qa/'s favorite scores for anime and such? Are they mostly comprised of scores for older series or has anything recent really drawn your attention and favor as well? Or, do you even notice the soundtrack while watching?

Also I don't mean an anime with say 1 good track throughout the whole thing with the rest forgettable, but one where the music as a whole is good.

Today is a sports day apparently, so how about some Dodgeball? Technos Japan had some truly amazing soundtracks on the NES and this game is part of the Kunio-kun series of games that had various localized names in the West. River City Ransom, Super Dodgeball, Crash and the Boys, etc.
Some of the songs borrow from known music (like the USSR theme here) while others are original as far as anyone knows.

Super Dodgeball:
USA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xi-6X7tmM4
USSR (yes it's that old) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bxqh18h7J5A

2Player Versus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_2xFCHz-wE

The clone team theme really highlights how special these games were. It has THREE different parts which was quite remarkable for a NES theme, or even today's VGM really. These themes really get you excited.

Of course if you would know any Technos Japan theme it would be this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoJ7YFUotTA
Actually, screw it LET'S LISTEN TO SOME DOUBLE DRAGON! There's no way this stuff hasn't been hugely influential to video game music for being so early and yet so elaborate and catchy.

Of course the Atelier series can't be ignored. I have dozens of their soundtracks and it's a fantastic mix of various styles with lots of celtic flair. Tons of piano stuff, tons of vocal stuff, and lots and lots of special albums. Atelier really has a magical, comforting feel to it and its soundtracks contributed greatly to it. Lots of great, relaxing instrumentals for gathering and towns, but hectic, energetic battle themes as well. Perhaps appropriately the music works really well in the background when you're working on stuff like drawing or whatever.
Most people have only played the Arland trilogy since it's widely seen as the highlight, but they're missing out on a lot of other stuff. I know I've talked about Atelier music before, but strangely none of it was in this thread.

I think my favorite song is still Atelier Rorona's... Atelier Rorona. I feel like I've spent at least a combined total of 30 hours listening to it.

Since someone mentioned Mitsuda in another /qa/ thread I'll link my favorite known soundtracks of his. (I don't listen to VGM without playing the game first)
I'll pick a few songs from each one if you don't have the willingness to listen to them all in order. I still have my old burned CDs of Xenogears and Chrono Cross. Ah, those were the days...

Budgets increased and Mitsuda has an orchestra for these two. Although it's arguable that he shouldn't have for Xenosaga because of how badly they apparently did their finances and it was reduced to a trilogy instead of 6 or more games. They actually used the London Philharmonic for Xenosaga which is probably very expensive. Soul Sacrifice is kind of weird because it had a second release with DLC on it, like a 'final edition' kind of thing and it had new songs. I think Soul Sacrifice in particular has an extremely atmosphereic theme that goes with its fascinating story elements tied to book pages. I've talked about it before on kissu, but it was years ago.

Something I've noticed of more serious otome/action-bishojo series is that they always try to upend society and replace the status quo with the politics and ideology that best suit them and their ideals. Homura, Utena, Dork, Euphie, Nefertima all act in similar ways to oppose the avatars of God(or God directly) who stand against them. Quite reminiscent of the Western media that conveys a similar concept of eroding status quo in favour of a rational society, except unlike in the West it's not done from a perspective of the moral choice and group harmony but pushes a more logical idea that directly criticizes the motives of those antagonistic of the protagonist.

>perspective of the moral choice
>a more logical idea
In "Western Thought", there is an assumption that the the logical or Truth is inherently moral. So this is actually a moral choice to the Westerner, just one that he isn't always conscious of. For example, why is Hypocrisy bad? "Directly [criticizing] the motives of those antagonistic of the protagonist" usually means pointing out the logical fallacies or the hypocrisy within the motivations of the antagonist. But why is this bad? What meaning is there in this criticism and why should the antagonist care about it? The answer is that Truth and logic are moral judgements that are presupposed. In a more power centric moral framework, Truth and logic are just tools to use against others in the pursuit of power that enforces the antagonist's will. Here being a hypocrite isn't immoral, so long as it's done in service of enforcing one's will.

Eh, I think that in Dork's case she's trying to solve a shallower issue that just affects her personally. While it's true that in her world there's prejudice against black people like her, it's not analogous to our world's prejudice where black people stood at the bottom of the social ladder due to slavery. Her world's prejudice is much more similar to this world's historic prejudice against g*ngers, which didn't need great societal upheavals to stop.

Why do those with power use their power to alter the world in a way that suits them? I don't understand. Why can't they just be polite and avoid sticking out?

Seriously though. I fail to see the merit of this perspective.
The question of what kinds of problems they set out to fix, and what values the authors are (inadvertently) weaving into the frameworks of their stories feels like a more promising line of thought.

Dorkness is doing it to mostly benefit herself, though

This is literally what Dork wants; a quiet life. I think OP misunderstood her character a bit because she doesn't fit into this ideal he's talking about at all. She doesn't want to change the game, just defeat the Demon Lord if necessary. In real life she was basically the "I NEED MORE POWER" Vergil archetype.

One thing I've noticed kissu never does is baneposting

Nobody sets themselves for it
Love baneposting though, probably the best /tv/ meme.

Images, I honestly don't have any, and that's a big reason why. It's mostly 4u as a reply but in a very general way, like "you're gay" and responding "for you," the classic big guy I only rarely use.

Listen I think baneposting is still a good meme, need to revive it somehow.

I miss those kinds of reaction images instead of the bullshit that we got now.

The fact that one of the biggest open source social media software companies has the most minimal website speak volumes of the unnecessary bloat of modern web design.

Pretty much, yeah. Noscript helps a lot with blocking the 30 other websites connected to most sites now and it helps stuff look more manageable, but perfect was reached back in the 00s. Some Japanese websites never 'advanced' and I'm jealous of them.
