    Social Media Manager? I believe they're still on their probationary period which is why they're not on the LMG staff page, but it's Madison.

    Eschew reacted to Crunchy Dragon in Why's "Bot spam" a separate report reason?   
    Without giving away too much, this is kind of how it goes. Bot spam and regular spam/advertising are different things, and it's important to make the distinction between them as it can impact our action going forward with the report.

    Mods could probably answer this more definitively than I can, here's just a plebby forum member's thoughts/observations:
    If the post contains a link or reads like a robotic advert/copy-pasta, I clicky the "Bot spam" button. Telltale signs are: thread title with weird formatting, thread titles that don't relate to the sub-forum, links at the top or bottom of the thread, spewing random facts about a topic (especially in the wrong sub-forum) then tacking on their website/online service at the end, or yet another CBD topic. Whether the spam originates from a bot/script or a human Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V is somewhat irrelevant, methinks. Spam is spam; clogs up the forum, needs to be flushed. 😅
     
    Been under the impression that "Bot spam" reports are handled faster than other reports. Or, could be one of those, "If a thread receives X amount of reports, it's automagically hidden from public view."
     
    For "Advertising," it tends to be more "organic"? The language used in the thread and thread title will make it clear whether it's a generic copy-pasta, or something the OP is invested in. Like, "This is my brother's mother's uncle's sister's father's grandson's app/game/website/charity, please check it out." or "Hi guys, I've made a thingy, can you all download it and give me feedback? Oh, also here's my Discord server. Kthxbai."

    Context is a tremendous help.
    Besides if we didn't pay attention to the details, the forum would be a free-for-all 😉
     
     
    *edit
    Just to clarify (for those that may not know) report messages just need to be a brief but concise summary of the issue. No need for finger pointing or opinions. We just need to know what is going on so we can make an unbiased judgement and then act appropriately.

    Eschew reacted to minibois in Please disable autoplaying videos from Reddit embeds   
    Today I was browsing through the status updates feed (https://linustechtips.com/discover/58/) and suddenly some really loud video starts to play, causing me to take off my headset and look for the source.
    It was an autoplaying video from a Reddit embed in this status update: https://linustechtips.com/status/290048/ (warning, might be very loud for you too).
     
    This doesn't always autoplay, but from what I gathered:
    Chrome: often autoplays
    FireFox: doesn't autoplay (might be because of a setting to force disable auto-plays)
    Chromium Edge: (often) autoplays
     
    If it's possible to disable, it would be great if that can be done. Or if it's possible, drastically lowering the volume would be great too.
    I am not exaggerating when I say for me this video was about two times louder than the YouTube video I was currently listening to.

    Never played or even really looked into that game, but I just love the platypus creature they have in the game and I am kind of salty Pokémon could probably never include a platypus Pokémon without it drawing similarities and comparisons to that creature.
    The power creep in the games is actually not that bad really, even the older Pokémon are viable in a normal playthrough. It's just the competitive aspect of the game revolves around certain staples in the series, but that is what the different ladders are for!
     
    I actually don't mind the EV training methods we have now, at the very least to get them out of obscurity.
    Personally I wouldn't mind the old EV/IV training/breeding methods, but they really should have something set up in that case that makes it easy to see your EV's/IV's. A lot of people used PokéGen or similar alternatives, because it was just annoying to get a good Pokémon.
    The battle frontier of Emerald was amazing! What they brought back in Platinum was alright, but not as good.
    If they have the audacity to once again not include the full facility - like what they did in ORAS - I will lose my mind!
     

    ^ '2014' is from Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Ruby/Sapphire remakes. They didn't even bring back the normal Battle Tower, but rather the X/Y Battle Maison which is just not as good.
     
    I hope in the Diamond/Pearl remakes they also bring back WiFi Plaza. An often forgotten feature from Platinum which almost no one seems to remember.
    At least in the trailers we saw the Underground, meaning at least part of my nostalgia is coming back 😄
     
    I'm trying to contain myself and not be too excited, fearing a lackluster remake to ruin my hype.
    As I always do nowadays, I'll wait for reviews to flow in before buying the game.
    An AGS-101 + converter cable (i.e. from BennVenn) might be a better option, or one of those IPS screen mods!
    Those look amazing.
    Mega evolutions was a cool concept to bring life into previously overlooked/weak Pokémon (and of course for the fan favorites, like.. Charizard.. And another Charizard!)
    Platinum still ranks among my top favorites for sure! I think I like HeartGold/SoulSilver more, because that region and its Pokémon I am the most fond of, but I can definitely see how HGSS seemed kind of stale.

    YES YES YEEESSSS.
    Pokemon Platinum (Diamond/Pearl series) counts as one of my favorite games, probably is my favorite Pokemon game, full-stop!
    The flipside of my pronouncing Platinum as my favorite Pokemon game, is that later Pokemon releases felt stale and uninspired (HeartGold/SoulSilver), or too controversial (Black/White/Black 2/White 2).

    Sharing the same sentiments -- if the new peeps handling the Diamond/Pearl remake dooon't bung it up, this might be the hook that reels me back into the Pokemon franchise. Legends being set in Sinnoh (SINNOH REGION BEST REGION) also gots me interest piqued. 👀...
     
    Holy crap I still can't believe Platinum/Diamond/Pearl was released over 10 years ago. TEN YEARS. I've played through the game sooo many times, but it still doesn't feel antiquated at all (IMO).

    Eschew reacted to Kawaii Koneko in LGBT community   
    Yeah, that's why I wanted to meet her sooner rather than later. I felt like after talking so much over the last few weeks, it was really important to know if we were compatible IRL to see if we could actually build something. I think it is abundantly clear we can.
     
    We met on a dating site and neither of us had ticked the "Looking for fun/dating" box, we both checked the "Looking for LTR/Marriage". So we are both looking for the same thing. Neither us are looking to get laid or have a fun time. We both want something that can lead to a lifelong relationship. 
     
    Honestly, we haven't even talked on that dating site for a couple of weeks now. We just totally moved over to direct texting and phone calls. So I think that is a pretty good sign.

    Eschew reacted to Kawaii Koneko in LGBT community   
    Sigh. I'm heading back home today after meeting that girl. I'd love to stay another day but I think leaving tomorrow would just be a bit much schedule wise. If I left tomorrow then I wouldn't get back until like midnight and then have to get up the next morning for an eleven hour shift. It'll be nice to have a day to relax first. Plus, I know she has a lot of things she wants to get done before her vacation ends. Also, I don't want to overwhelm her on a first visit.
     
    But man, this was such a great trip. I feel such a strong connection with her. We have so much in common, we even watch the same YouTubers. I had a feeling we would inadvertently end up watching some of the same car YouTubers but then she told me she watches channels like The Internet Historian and The Quartering which just further reaffirmed how similar our interests, humor, and political views are. We actually talked a lot of politics last night and yeah, we are just like in lockstep in our views, and unpopular ones at that lol.
     
    And even the things that I'm not particular into, like tanks (she is a huge tank nerd), I find it really attractive that she is into them. I'm so attracted to her geeky side. I know there are girls out there who like cars, anime, videos games, or whatever else I'm into but it's like she is into everything I'm into pretty much, except tech. She isn't really a tech person but she is a big gamer. She spent a lot of time showing me all her old games she still has and her old Nintendo handhelds. We both even still have our old CRTs for gaming purposes and both don't have the room to set them up lol. When she told me she kept her CRT for old consoles, I felt like saying "Marry me" lol. Not literally, but you know what I mean.
     
    I feel really uncomfortable right now though. Like, I'm worried I might be letting my emotions get a bit too far ahead of me because I feel really depressed that I'm leaving. Like genuinely down in the dumps. I just want to spend time with her. And I feel that uneasy feeling that I haven't felt in a long time for a girl where you feel uncertainty about where things are going when I want them to move forward.
     
    Most relationships I have been in, things moved fast early on and fizzled out fast. Unlike most girls I have dated, she is a very slow mover. I think it is a combination of just being a serious girl and only interested in something long term, not a fun time, being pretty inexperienced when it comes to dating, and I imagine her being trans makes her a bit more guarded as well because, well, you know how guys can be. I guess because of all of that, I have been moving a lot slower as well. I've been very cautious not to rush her and to really try to do things on her time. I actually like this about her though. I like that she wants to build a relationship first before getting too serious but at the same time, it leaves me second guessing about how she feels which is totally dumb of me.
     
    She told me she likes me and before I left she outright told me she feels like our relationship is moving in the right direction. She has a bit of a sense of humor though because before she said that, she was like "Well, you haven't scared me off". Probably was just funny in the moment because of the look on her face, she was totally being a little cheeky. Honestly, after seeing her in person, my feelings for her have only grown. I just outright told her that and she seemed to appreciate it.
     
    She told me I was the only guy online that actually followed through with her or wasn't a total moron. She said she she would get messages from guys asking all kinds of invasive questions, wanting nudes or to send her nudes, and even the guys who she started talking to would just totally disappear somewhere in the conversation. She said a lot of guys just got cold feet. So yeah, I can tell she is still nervous and cautious. But I'm dead serious so I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing and let this move forward on her time. It is going to be total agony though because if she were ready, I'd start dating her now but I can tell she wants things to build more. I know she likes me and I can tell she trusts me because she pretty much told me as much but she is just a slow mover and I'm cool with that. 
     
    I just feel honored she shared so much with me and opened up so much the last couple days. And I have a very good feeling about this. I'd be surprised if we don't start dating but damn, do I feel uneasy still. I feel like a kid in high school all over again.
     
    EDIT: Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention. She has the coolest fashion tastes. She is really into gothic lolita. She showed me (and sent me yay) some pictures of her all dolled up in her gothic lolita outfits and OMG. She looks so good in them and my geeky anime side absolutely loves it. Kinda hard to wear those outfits normally though so she generally tends to dress in a mix of goth, gothic lolita, and the general adorkable look. Kind of a blend and she pulls it off perfectly. It totally suits her looks and personality. She is seriously the most adorkable girl I have ever met and I love that sooooo much.
     
    Yeah, talk about being the luckiest guy ever.

    It's perfectly fine to dislike a certain music genre, group, song, etc ... And what emotions are brought up are 100% yours, but boiling down one style of music to a few specific words ? I don't know. The "angry" and "loud noises / instruments" are in many other types of music and songs (Killing In the Name by Rage Against the Machine for exemple), while some metal songs and groups can be a lot closer to rock than anything else (Nothing else matters from Metallica for exemple, I suggest you to listen to it)
     
    I also can listen to pretty much any type of music appart from country/western (there are exceptions though). Funny thing is, 90's metal, grunge and punk is my teenage years and so most of those genres are very nostalgic to me !!! 😄
