[aa]That was kind, I'll do it[/aa]


I've been reading Berserk the past two days. It's amazing how grotesque the art is. I read a bit of it not too long ago, and I really don't think I appreciated the art as I do now.


i've finally cut out all social media and instead reading more blogs, one post has more information than an entire day wasted on social media and i feel so much better ^-^ i'm so habby frens, i hope u find something to be habby bout too <3

Hello /kind/, I've been celebrating anime character birthdays for around 4 years now and so, I'd like to make this thread to wish every character that I like a happy birthday when the time comes.
Doing this has increased my happiness by a lot! and I mean it! every day feels like a special day and it makes me motivated to do my best! just remembering that is the birthday of someone special brightens my day! and looking at the art that the character gets on that day is also nice.
I usually check this website https://www.animecharactersdatabase.com/birthdaycalendar.php or twitter, is filled with people wishing them a happy birthday and drawings!
I won't be posting about every character so if you like a character feel free to wish them a happy birthday in this thread too!

Anime is quite real, and even if waifus aren't, our relationships with them are REAL.

of any shape or form, post here when you have something vidya related
I finished Star Fox for the SNES and I really loved that the game expects you to turn off the console after finishing it. Reminds me of other /kind/ games like Earthbound, Mario Kart 64 and Undertale
The theme of friendship is stronger on 64 though.

>I don't remember cities being independant all that well
Cities couldn't hold off on their own or anything against a real force, but it certainly makes it easy to ignore military altogether (with the unaggressive bots). Realistically, you could leave your cities undefended entirely in 5, so long as you don't get into a war with a neighbor. Worst case scenario you get attacked by a barbarian or some other miniscule force, but you could hold off a few turns for a unit to be built. Realistically, if any force entered a city without any sort of organized military, the city would surrender to avoid unnecessary casualties. It punishes aggressive players by slowing down their forces in a stupid way. It would encourage the stacks of death more, if they allowed it, instead you have to hold off until later when you get units that can move after combat and slowly move a huge mass of units that can efficiently conquer.
>archers and artillery units don't have actual ranged attacks
Yeah, that's pretty stupid. It makes it pretty much impossible to have archers act to support the melee units by thinning the enemy a bit, as they actually would. I do really like the proper ranged combat functions of Civ 5.
>I'm not sure how they could have fixed things
It's hard to balance it in a way that pleases everyone. You have people that only care about combat and people that hardly use the combat features. Personally I'm closer to the former, even if I prefer culture victories and the like. It keeps things from becoming stagnant, as opposed to taking the most efficient path through the tech tree.
All in all, they're fun games, and I like both 3 and 5. I realize it'd be impossible for them to make a game that does things perfectly because there's people that enjoy other aspects more. I like 3 more because it feels a lot less restricted that 5.


Just finished Shovel Knight. The ending was very heartwarming.

I'd join but never played multiplayer before and I don't know what to do what all the cobblestone after I am done collecting diamands or searching for lava whenever I play singleplayer. I just don't want to be an asshole lagging the game and ruining the fun for everyone because I stored 72 chest full of stone and dirt because I feel I like need to hold on to everything without even using it.

>I need to see more examples
The best way to remember interrogatives is that normally they are "wh words" such as where, why, which, what, or who. There are others, generally some form of be or do, as well as how, but those are only for yes/no questions.

This is a minor thing, but
>I know it.
Should be
>I know that
That specifies a certain emphasis, generally on something just mentioned. It is more general. Both are technically correct, and it doesn't really matter all that much, but it's just something that's good to know.


You seem to have a good enough understanding of english words. I would recommend you study grammar. Read a book in english. Something simple and that has a good amount of dialogue. From that you can get a better understanding of how it's usually spoken. That should let you write at the same level as most americans.

I'm too lazy to learn anything, I always quit the first or second week, sometimes the second day

try to talk to a friend, even for a little bit, or find people to help you keep yourself in check
I got a boost in motivation to learn after talking to an old friend today and I feel ready to power through some reading.


I had never seen a Yui doge before and I don't know why but I love that image. Saved.
It's funny you mentioned…
>second week
I can't remember where I heard this or what it was exactly supposed to pertain to, but at some point I came across the general concept that behavioral changes or developing a new habit takes roughly two weeks for the new behavior or habit to seem normal and not feel uncomfortable. Two weeks of conscious discipline before you stop fighting yourself. Whether this is true or not, I don't know. What I do know is that I assumed this to be true and began to operate as if it was. So, anytime I decide to learn something that is interesting and difficult at the same time, I resign myself to the fact that it will be about a couple weeks before I might have any fun and the new study or practice begins to feel comfortable. Maybe a case of the placebo effect. Maybe a weird case of lowered expectations. Still, this belief has helped me to stick with and push through all sorts of things that I might have otherwise given up on… learning a foreign language, studying music, coding, exercise, whatever. Even something as casual as playing a new genre of vidya where I know I'll eventually enjoy the game or whatever, but the controls or interface feel off and frustrating. Usually, after a couple of weeks or there about, I almost feel uncomfortable if I'm not practicing or studying the new thing that might have felt like a chore at first.

Pleasant and aesthetically pleasing western art is definitely /kind/ material.

>I first noticed his name when I was reading my sister "At the Mountains of Madness" when I was 16, and she was interested when he was mentioned.
I actually noticed that when I read that back in high school. I wasn't expecting that, since H.P. Lovecraft wasn't usually one to reference painters.


Yeah, it was a bit strange, but when I first read it, I was too invested in the story to take the time to look up a painter.

This conversation inspired me to go look for that old drawing my sister made, and it actually wasn’t a copy of the one you posted, but a similar one. I think that I’m going to call her tomorrow and remind her of this

I like how she chose to take the original painting in a different direction instead of just aiming for an exact replica. It reminds me of how painters used to do variations on the same idea, whether it was their own or someone else's.


Yeah, she's a really good artist. And an even better photographer. She actually had the opportunity to get into SCAD, but she gave it up so that she could have a shitty job at a car dealership in order to work with her boyfriend. It sucks a bit, thinking of what she could have done, but it's what she wanted to do, and I don't fault her for it.

When did you begin using imageboards regularly and how do you think it has affected your life?
79 posts and 28 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


>Internet culture in general has become homogenized. Everywhere you go, which is increasingly a select few social media giants, has the same lingo, the same tired memes, the same culture. I've left all such places, including the larger imageboards, because I can't relate to modern e-culture at all. Doing this has made me realize just how great some of the smaller sites and communities that are insulated from the greater mass of cancer really are, so I want to make an effort to preserve them.
Yeah, exactly. I feel like an old man looking at the way people write nowadays, even ones a few years older than me. A lot of the humor is just unfunny stuff you'd see on social media sites. It's all just so lame and foreign to me (in a non-exotic way).
I don't think it's my cup of tea, but I love seeing people keeping stuff like that going. I remember 8chan having a ham radio board before the site-wide activity unfortunately withered away and killed off a lot of the smaller boards.


I first found imageboards a while before chanology, so probably around 2007. I briefly lurked 4chan before moving onto smaller boards.

Imageboards have had a positive impact on my life. I was going to be lonely anyway because I dislike dishonest narratives and playing along with them. They give me a place to wander where honesty still has some value.

I started in IB when was I undergae; the first time I listen about IB was in the typically videos of 4chan (histories, threads, raids, etc.), and I interested in IB; then I visited 4chan, but I don't knew what's happened there. One day, a JewYuber shows me other IB but in my language (I don't speak english), so there I started to visit more and more IB.

I remember first seeing /b/tards in 2005, I thought the whole thing was much too wierd at first. Two years later, I started going on Idlechan. I was mostly a lurker. I later went to other independent imageboards such as 888chan, 789chan and several other ones that I can't remember. After an absence from the internet and from imageboards, I went on 8chan; I posted on /mtf/ and a few other boards. It was so fun and I wouldn't call us "tight-knit", but we were pretty close for an imageboard. I started up a RPG thread about a high school demon hunter club but it got killed when 8chan was attacked in April 2017. I wish that /soc/,/fa/,/cgl/ and /lgbt/ would split off from 4chan. I hate what 4chan has become, it's everything an imageboard shouldn't be. Back in when I started posting, I mostly went on forums, so imageboards really didn't have that much of an influence on me.
As somebody who was around during the golden age of forums, you missed nothing. The same type of stuff was going on there.
>Doing this has made me realize just how great some of the smaller sites and communities that are insulated from the greater mass of cancer really are, so I want to make an effort to preserve them.
The only good thing about the fall of 8chan is that it seems to have revitalized the independent chan scene. I think 8chan was a factor in Idlechan closing; it (8chan) ended up being the Wal-Mart of imageboards.


>I later went to other independent imageboards such as 888chan, 789chan and several other ones that I can't remember.
I used to lurk those two sites too, despite not understanding a lot of the site culture at the time. I've always been interested in eccentric people.
>I wish that /soc/,/fa/,/cgl/ and /lgbt/ would split off from 4chan.
What's /fa/ like these days? I used to go a long time ago, and it was pretty cancerous even then. It helped me learn to present myself properly, but after I was done gleaning all the information I found necessary I promptly moved on.
>I hate what 4chan has become, it's everything an imageboard shouldn't be.
It's not much better than Reddit nowadays.
