People sure are going crazy about "NFTs", but what exactly are they? The extent of my knowledge is that they're somehow exclusive copies of "memes" but how does that even work for internet stuff, it seems like a trick. Also, excluding all of that, who's even the market for these scam tokens? Rich people with nothing better to waste money on?

But I mean are people still spending hundreds of thousands on them or have the people with money moved on and it's the poorer memers that are left behind?


Ugh... I replied to myself, I meant to reply to you >>74212



It seems like one of those nonsense technologies that does nothing but caught on because it's been hyped up a lot.

Is there anything you still use pen & paper for? Aside from financials I'll use it for practicing Kanji. Other than that, everything I could write down, I can do faster and more clearly with a computer, it even lets me organize my thoughts better and redo more easily. I just can't really imagine any situations where people really need to write anymore.

I use pen and paper to take not for university stuff, I feel like I don't remember as much if I write on a computer.

Passwords as >>74164 said.
Also sometimes grocery stuff since I don't have/need a smartphone. I'm doing my part to save the trees!


File:[HorribleSubs] Hinako Note….jpg (31.82 KB,295x347)

For everything. I use an embarrassing amount of both, easily go through a pen / a ream of paper in a couple weeks. I just can't think without putting a pen to paper, my mind is blank without it. Plus, it's fun to try new pens. My favorite is probably the cheap Preppy fountain pen, but for a gel pen you can't go wrong with a basic Energel.


File:drawing_frens.jpg (265.31 KB,1832x1692)

if you look at organic art (as in not final version processed) closely you'll notice a lot of the lineart is actually shaky up close. I've just accepted it as part of the process and draw with the shaky lines. unless I'm underestimating what you meant by jagged, which I might be.


File:animegirlwriting.gif (269.33 KB,500x500)

Whenever I play older games where taking notes helps, I usually write that sort of stuff down on paper. Sure, writing it on the computer would work, but readability is an important factor. Computer text has a sameness to it all that can make it had to tell where something is at a moment's glance. That's not necessarily because it's hard to read, it's just the formatting of the writing itself; it takes much longer to tab something out, do underlining, italics, whatever than it does simply writing it the way you want to begin with.

Also when I think of drawing something I usually use paper as well. I do have a wacom tablet, but it takes a little bit opening up photoshop, and then picking brushes and stuff, and it just slows me down whereas just sketching something is quick because I can just pick up a pencil.

It also helps when planning out how programs will work sometimes.

Basically paper is just good for getting ideas out quickly. Sure, everything that can be done on paper can be done on a computer, it's just slower because you have to open a program and do whatever whereas picking up a pencil and sheet of paper is just so much quicker and easier.

Would /qa/ be willing to view some ads for some free content unlocks in their games?
7 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I can't see this working in anything but mobile games. Mobile games can have ads because they're designed in a very arcade-ey way where taking breaks makes sense. On console and PC people play for long periods and getting interrupted would be too much of a sticking point to keep playing.

All media does that, even the good stuff. What matters isn't if you're being manipulated, it's whether or not you enjoy being manipulated.

I'm gonna go occam's razor and say that it's probably just greed. The game industry already makes boatloads of money, so they don't need to do this so much as they want to.

See >>74125
The sort of people this is targeting probably won't care. And on the flipside, the sort of games we play probably won't be affected by it.


>All media does that, even the good stuff. What matters isn't if you're being manipulated, it's whether or not you enjoy being manipulated.
I think we're talking past each other. I'm not going to bother setting out legal definitions for everything, but there's a clear difference between (say) a clickbait article and a novel with a plot that ties at your heartstrings.


EA has already been doing it for years. Related is from 2019, and here's another game from last year with ads:


I don't like posts that include youtube videos.


It's 100% an immersion killer, so probably the only games that will pick it up will be crappy sports games and stuff like maybe Just Dance. Don't think even f2p MMOs would add it in since they make money from getting people to pay for in-game items, and you want the player to be immersed enough to spend in the first place.

Does /qa/ have any rituals that they do? I don't necessarily mean religious, but things you do regularly.

For instance, whenever I go into the bathroom, I always have to pull the shower curtain aside because... Ya know.

I like to shit in the dark in my small bathroom, like block all the light.
I don't have to, but it's something I do a lot.
Oh and walking all the way to the garage to get a drink when in fact I have multiple drinks on hand. Very dumb..


I check my alarms over and over before going to sleep
when I close a fridge I press my hand on the handles over and over to make sure it’s closed, even more for a freezer
when I close a locked door or in the past any door I would obsessively open and close it and turn the handle and lock and unlock and then walk away and come back to mess with the handle more
I stare at the stove for awhile after using it because im convinced I left it on
when I use a faucet I press the handles back many times and run my hand under it to make sure no waters out but even when my hand comes up dry I keep doing it

I hate that I do all of these things and thankfully have got myself down to doing these infrequently and not all of them every single day every time I did something mentioned


File:__inaba_tewi_reisen_udonge….png (1.67 MB,1434x1434)

I am very particular about washing my hands as soon as I get home, and whenever I come in contact with something from outside, like when picking up a delivery or taking out the trash.
I weigh myself after waking up every day, even though I'm not really at a point where I should care about it.
I drink a cup of coffee after waking up and a cup of tea after meals, and sometimes another cup of coffee before bed.
I have those "10 hours of white noise" videos on every night, because walls are thin and my sleep times don't always match my neighbors'.

I do this too.

And, most importantly, I say "rabbit rabbit" at the start of every month.


File:6434C2E4-C9C6-482E-AD45-6….jpeg (353.61 KB,1468x978)

I always unplug all my electronics and turn off the gas valve before I leave home. Also I have a habit of smoking so I go around the house to see if there is any fire and pour some water over the cigarette butts before I sleep. There is always a bucket of water next to the living room entrance just in case.


When leaving my room, I always leave a shoe in the open door frame so any wind from the open windows has no chance to push the door back to its frame with a loud sudden noise.

If one day you had to fight to defend the honor of your waifu against a decently built opponent, would you be able to?
Despite my delusions of grandeur, I am fairly certain I will lose to even a 15 year old. My only memories of school fights are ones where I was too afraid to do anything because I didn't want to get suspended and/or expelled. Then as I grew older, I started realizing how weak the human body is. Mostly due to all those rekt threads on 4chan...
I don't understand how people can take part in fights, the human body is so weak. (Well, of course, if not trained properly.) Take a hit in one of the many critical hit areas of the human body and you could possible die or worse; turn into a vegetable.
Hence, as much as I despise myself for having to say this, I for one could not fight to defend my waifu's honor. I am simply too pussy. Gif related will be me.

Stealth takedown anyone that tried to dishonor me or my shabs


File:90744263_p0.jpg (669.27 KB,1000x1000)

Maybe? If a loved one is threatened people can fight stronger than usual, like real life 'limiters' getting removed, so I suppose I could at least take some hits. Not sure I'd accomplish anything though...


File:1502190531513.gif (439.33 KB,640x414)

I have pretty high reaction times, and I'm decently quick, so I think I could at least dodge most attacks. As far as being able to throw punches, however... That's another story. I'd probably have to rely on exploiting my opponent's balance through kicks and trips. Once they're on the ground, I think I'd have a decent chance at beating them, but if they knock me down, I don't think I'd be able to escape or recover.

All in all, I'd say my odds are 40:60 win to lose.

If things are spiced up by throwing weapons into the mix, I think I might have the advantage when it comes to dealing with knives, but blunt weapons like bats I'd be back to disadvantaged again.


You get beat up face to face, then spend like a week stalking them waiting for the right time to take them out and dump their body out into the ocean.


I've gotten into fights with medium sized animals (made short mention of one time on the /sum/ board) and three humans in my life time I've lost most of my muscles since and I'm skinny now but yeah I just don't know really I guess it depends on who the opponent is.

Started playing finally. A bit rusty on my STGs so I only made it to Stage 3 on my second try. It's pretty neat how the game dynamic has changed a bit with the purchases at the end of each stage. It forces you to make a choice between more safety or different powerups that are offered. Also if you want those really strong powerups you're going to need to play pretty greedily since they cost a fair bit of the new currency drop.

I'm just waiting for cheat engine codes so I can play it half-asleep and enjoy the music and story. I envy people with the patience to memorize all these patterns and such


only on easy, but easy mode doesn't really count. I need to play it again, now that it's translated.

Here's the story's summary, anon

File:phpbb.png (33.11 KB,256x256)


What is it that makes a forum different or similar to an imageboard?

I've been looking through a collection of PHPBB sites and what I've come across is that they focus a lot on hobbies and community rather than free discussion. Finding a forum devoted to discussing storms in the US or Brit's discussing their interest in cultivating desert plants is very different from anything on the imageboard sphere. Even a somewhat generic topic on forums such as sci-fi media is lost on a /tv/ imageboard to discussions of whether enjoying a certain type of media is worse than enjoying others.
Why is it that forums maintain a more professional and focused atmosphere to imageboards more chaotic and disorganized(arguably immature) take on topics, or am I perhaps not looking at the right imageboards and places that behave very mature do not exist? Why do tech groups prefer using forums to discuss their technology over imageboards?


these are two examples of a very common trend in PHPBB forums


File:a67f40812a8e48e50d026df3e0….jpg (507.98 KB,992x1194)

>Why is it that forums maintain a more professional and focused atmosphere to imageboards more chaotic and disorganized(arguably immature) take on topics
Strict moderation. It's the biggest difference from imageboards which almost all are much more liberal, especially with off-topic contents not allowed on forums.
Also forums have user names and post counts displayed so anyone can discern whether a post is made by a known veteran or someone new.
Both of these assists on discussion of highly specific topics.


Eary 4chan was among the most notorious no-rules zones out there, producing the lazie-fair attitude inherited by later imageboards.

Kate-sama sugoi!
What does /qa/ think of this pretty anime? I think so far it's been quite good, keeping up the air of mystique surrounding the premise. Kate having a seemingly unique power amongst her family members, and hints at a "culling" of sorts, I wonder if this is headed towards Alice being an imperfect doll that passes her debut through Kate's abilities. Also with the soot being capable of taking on life it raises questions of how the members of the Shadows family are born. Then there was the end of this episode showing not only living dolls without their accompanying Shadows meeting with the Grandfather, but them referring to him as such when earlier it had been stated to be taboo amongst living dolls. So many things to think about.

The first 20 or so chapters were SoL featuring Emilyko, Kate and other shadow kids. After that the trials start and end, and then more things start happening. I'll probably read everything again, since I stopped reading the manga shortly after Kate cleanses Emilyko from some mind-controlling smoke that was served to the winner dolls as a "reward" and don't remember on which chapter I left the story.


File:[SubsPlease] Shadows House….jpg (Spoiler Image,156.29 KB,1280x720)

I think the point you left off is actually where the anime just left off with the last episode...

I need to thoroughly analyze my system before nuking it.
Somehow I've become part of a botnet that shitposts all over 4chan, making posts on /int/ and /tv/ and I only just now noticed because I recieved a couple bans. These bans are linked to my HOME IP.
I checked the posts themselves and there's just no way they're me even if I had a split personality.
Have you guys heard of anything similar?

remember some time after I started using a new vpn once (OpenVPN I think?) my IP ended up being autobanned from 4chan because it was being recognized as a proxy
uninstalled that shit real fast and the problem never happened again


Oh yeah, that could be it. Some of the "free" VPNs have it in the fine print that you volunteer your own connection as a residential proxy service


Hmm? Well I was posting from my phone originally, but on home wifi, then I just confirmed on the PC and I'm still banned.

That may be the case, just removed Tuxler but I don't use that browser much to begin with.


check network connections with resource manager?


Yep, Tuxler does it. I'm not sure that simply not using some browser will cancel it, though. You should probably uninstall it, not least of which that you really don't want people using your IP for malicious (and illegal) stuff

I'm glad that despite the direction Re;Zero is headed, the author remains active making nice original projects.


File:[SubsPlease] Sentouin, Hak….jpg (186.03 KB,1280x720)

On the other side of the successful isekai author coin, the more I watch of Sentouin the more it feels like the author is trying to stay afloat on the fact that they made konosuba. The premise is aggravating to think about, much of the cast come off as discount rehashed konosuba characters who can't make up their minds on what they want to be, and there's been an excess in references to konosuba to remind you that this show is from the very same author. I wish I could like it more, but it makes itself so hard to enjoy.


im glad im not the only one who is not feeling very satisfied with sentouin. i think it would be better if the characters were more endearing but they usually fall flat, in the few instances theyre used


problem is the motivation of the characters doesn't exist within the setting. I and most would be fine with a konosuba clone, but the reason for the characters to behave in that way isn't possible with the setting the author has created.


File:[SubsPlease] Vivy - Fluori….jpg (106.12 KB,1280x720)

It was the song...


File:[SubsPlease] Vivy - Fluori….jpg (162.93 KB,1280x720)

Conflicted about how I feel about this. On one hand it was really good each episode, and had a spectacular climax. But on the other hand it felt lacking in something special to really put it on the same level as Dynazenon...

Not that it was at all bad, it's one of the more solid anime this season and had really nice music.
