I have to wonder if.... I do wonder why you would skip over... I have to wonder why you have such an emphasis....

Yeah, you sure do wonder a lot about the kind of material hes chosen to fill himself with.
Translation: I don't even understand that my shitposting is shitposting. What I say is just as worthwhile as anyone else.

Open Culture sounds like a great resource.

I have to wonder if (Epistemology, Latin, Hebrew) would really make for a well-rounded education though. Philosophy is definitely nice to have, but unless you're interested in advanced study of Biblical revisions through time I doubt the latter two will come in handy. Plenty of texts already cover multiple translations of most known historical documents in Hebrew. I do wonder why you would skip over Greek, though. There's actually a fair amount of old Greek literature in this area as well (non-canon gospels and such).

But yeah, Math and Science are also pretty nice to have I think. As far as philosophy goes, I think Ethics is a very good realm to study. There's a lot anyone can gain from learning the basic ethical arguments and how they are applied. Some of it might even fall in line with your interests (Virtue Ethics, or perhaps even Kantianism). A hard-line logic course is also a good recommendation with anyone unfamiliar (but a good intro to ethics course will cover some of this as well).

I have to wonder why you have such an emphasis on historic texts and languages though. I hope this isn't some sort of Dan Brown-esque quest to find hidden meaning in texts of old.

Our minds are built to find patterns, correlations. We're very adept at it, it's a strong survival skill. But, correlation does not imply causation. Going overboard with trying to find connections can be prohibitive to normal life. Even I have to remind myself sometimes that patterns I believe to see are probably not there--and more importantly don't really have an impact on me being able to live, work, and thrive.

US Server admins: So far I've only seen this map working on Hyper-V Hot Mess servers. Regular Hot Mess and SirPlease don't seem to work with this map. Can you guys add it to the servers?

Outside of the medkits and non-modern-standard finale this map seems pretty stable though.

Servers & Adminning / Bring back the wait command
« on: June 16, 2016, 09:22:29 am »
Hi. I think servers should enable the wait command again.

Here's some reasons why the wait command was disabled that are no longer valid:

  • People used jump spam scripts to common hop more effectively in some cases.
    • Common hopping is now a death sentence (on high tickrate).
  • People used autofire scripts to fire pistols faster.
    • I *think* the configs do something to rate limit pistols anyway on high tick
    • I have a feeling that by now AHK is fairly ubiquitous among those who want to use scripts to this advantage.
  • Some people maybe used a script for jumprocks...
    • Acemod doesn't even allow jumprocks (though PM5 does I guess?)
    • I've never seen a successful jumprock script without locked framerates and such. AHK would be much better.

Here's some reasons not allowing wait command makes things worse:

  • Players that use wait commands (now: generally new confogl players) crash and have to choose to edit autoexecs or not play confogl.
  • When playing back demos from wait-disabled-servers, every time the demo begins (i.e. plays tick 0) it disables wait commands. If you want to use wait commands while recording, it's a veritable minefield of crashes/freezes.
    • I've tried a number of non-plugin techniques to prevent this, and it seems to bypass the console environment entirely.

Here's some things that I honestly think would make the game better or more appealing with wait commands enabled:

  • Glow scripts.
    • Even without the "flashing items" part, glows that alternate between temp and perm health are very useful and helpful to new players.
    • More relevant in promod than acemod, but it was still a huge quality of life addon, and it really helped newer players who needed to get used to the health bonus system.
  • Spectator/Camera Scripts
    • Kissme remembers to check health bonus once in a blue moon. Some scripts to output all of that info regularly could add to things.
    • There was a short-lived auto-spectating bot that used ingame scripts to switch perspectives between players. No longer possible :(

I get a lot of effort went into organizing this tournament, and trust me, all the decent people here respect that, definitely HCP as well
Disagree they have been trolling and playing racist shit in their warrooms without regard for anyone. Even conspired to make this match a troll despite the fact that it violates just about the entire unsportsmanlike conduct section.

but do you really want BOT to be remembered as that tourny where that certain shit went down. Just for once, let's have a normal, clean tournament. HCP and Noxious can apologize, you can accept their apology, and we fucking move on, that's life, isn't it?
They have a lot more to apologize for than one match ^___^

I'd rather have shit go down earlier in the tournament than once again let trolly top tier players slide and make everyone else ask why they bother.

Other teams have literally abused rules and tried to go behind admins backs and yet they aren’t punished at all.

So report them. Bystander effect is no reason to complain :)

There is no rule about players trolling in twitch chat, plus mods can ban them.

Each participant is expected to hold themselves to a high standard
of professional and courteous conduct toward others at all
times. Abusive, harassing, disrespectful, or unsportsmanlike conduct
will not be tolerated -- neither during a tournament match nor
in any other venue.
