Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Viking Raiders] Post your feedback here!

The radial menus are frequently in the way. Consider putting them on the enemy instead. What I mean by this is when you click on your guy you get the glowing green movement screen as if you had pressed the move button. You move your cursor over the enemy and two buttons pop out for regular and glory attacks.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Citizen Grim] Got feedback? We want it!

If I didn’t think it was a neat game I wouldn’t care enough to comment.

Suggestions:

Formations for mercs, so they try to go where I want them.

Some basic AI for mercs, like “Target Nearest” “Target Weakest” type of AI.

Auto Attack for main or a “shoot only” mode. Running into a pack when I was trying to shoot them sucks, especially because my mercs get out of position. If there is an auto attack it should have basic AI.

Normalize the returns on tents. Shortest time = Highest cost per unit and production per hour —> Longest time = Lowest cost per unit and production per hour.

Put 4 and 8 hour increments on the tents. Fits into a normal job schedule better.

Tent management screen to at least show how much time is left on all tents without having to swap regions. Being able to collect and set production from this screen would be nice but I can understand why you might not want to do this. Could do a system where if you assign a merc to a region you can set and collect from that region via a management screen. The merc would not be usable while any tent timers are running in that region. Something to do with extra mercs rather than have them sit.

Change the “Try Me” weapons so that the timer begins with the first shot fired. I almost never get to fire them at all and if I do it’s one or two shots. This defeats the purpose.

Maybe prefixes and suffixes for weapons and armor for a little more character customization. Maybe a slotting system or something. More character building options of some sort. Maybe leveling for mercs.

But I specifically said, and in BOLD, that it wasn’t racist so it can’t be! I guess I’ll have to use BOLD AND ALL CAPS next time :/

By the way, when you sue me could you sue for a percentage of my net worth rather than a set amount? That way I’ll get rid of some of this debt. ;)

Topic: Serious Discussion / Quote Discussion, Current quote: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

If we use the legal definition of convictions then I agree. Tolerant people don’t go to prison as much as intolerant people. ;)
I am intolerant towards intolerance. ;)

But more seriously, the most tolerant people (in my experience) hold tolerance itself as a conviction.

There’s also the question of whether or not convictions are a good thing to have. Some convictions lead to desirable results and some don’t. The Phelps are full of convictions. Stalin had very strong convictions as well. Both tolerance and convictions are things that require some thinking to keep them from going awry.

Oftentimes in life, too many chefs spoil the stew. Sometimes you just have to tell everyone to go away if you want to get something done and done right.

Facts are facts.


Only the eithically ignorant would consider this racist. Facts are facts.

This shows blacks are more likely to target whites then whites to blacks.

Yup, but blacks are 96% more likey to over-eggagerate it as a hate crime.

What facts are you basing these statements on?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Which would YOU do? Drink or Pump?

If you’ll write the note that you would write I’ll compare and explain the differences.

Edit
When you do, try not to be influenced by what you’ve already read.

You have a pump and you need to tell people how to properly use it.

Dark, if you were the person writing a note explaining to people that the well needed to be primed what would you write? Compare that to the note provided.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Which would YOU do? Drink or Pump?

I would leave it alone unless I was dying of thirst. The note sounds like it was written by a nut. Who knows whats in that water, crazy people do crazy stuff like put razor blades in Halloween candy. Might be clear urine in that jar. It seems like someone is playing some sort of mind game and since I don’t know the real rules I wouldn’t want to mess with it at all.

If I were dying of thirst I would do all I could to determine if there really was water in the well. If I couldn’t tell at all and had no option but to drink or die, I would pour some in the well and try to keep some in case the note is a lie.

Shrub, there are some things you need to understand about NCVS data. Firstly, it is self reported by victims. Before continuing establish this fact in your mind for a second. Take a deep breath and relax for a second.

Ok, ready? Now take this quiz

Do you understand?

NCVS data is meant to be used by professionals who understand how to analyze data and understand how methodologies influence the conclusions that can be drawn from it. One thing you can correctly draw from this sort of data is trends, trends like this:


Characteristics of victims of violent crimes measured by the
NCVS in 2008 were similar to previous years. Males,
blacks, and persons age 24 or younger experienced violent
victimizations at higher or somewhat higher rates than
females, whites, and persons age 25 or older (table 4).

and this:


With the exception of simple assault, blacks experienced
higher rates than whites for every violent crime measured
by the NCVS. Blacks also had higher rates than persons of
other races (American Indian, Alaska Native, Asian, Native
Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander) of overall violence and
simple assault, and marginally higher rates of robbery and
aggravated assault.

In 2008, 1% of the U.S. population self-identified as being of
more than one race. Individuals of more than one race
experienced violent crime at rates 2 to 3 times higher than
whites, blacks, or persons of other races.

I’m assuming your link to NCVS is meant to support the statement:


As of the 2008 NCVS, blacks committed 83% of the 520,000 violent crimes. This shows blacks are more likely to target whites then whites to blacks.

It doesn’t though. But hey, maybe I’m wrong. Can you quote the specific part of that link that supports your statement, I can’t seem to find it.

But back to your first link for a second. Why did you feel it was appropriate to discard almost 30% of the data? You don’t have to answer me or this forum or anyone else. I ask you to answer only one person, yourself. When you do this answer yourself more truthfully than you’ve ever answered yourself before. When you arrive at an answer to this question that adds up and rings true you may begin to understand why:


…heres where everyone starts calling me racist and present the counter arguments…

You really have a choice ahead of you. You can go someplace like here and begin on a journey of learning about physical reality, or you can go someplace like here and continue down this road of fantasy and hatred. I hope you will choose wisely, but the choice is yours to make.

Go back to your first link. http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/offenses/expanded_information/data/shrtable_03.html

Look at the first line of data. Write it out if you have to. Do the math.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Crime and color

Blacks comprise about 12% of the population but commit over 50% of the homicides.

The data you provided does not support this statement.

Blacks are 2.1 times more likely to commit simple assault and 3.1 times more likely to commit aggravated assault, 7.3 times more likely to commit sexual assault, and 36 times more likely to commit robbery. These are huge differences, considering proportionally the amount of blacks as compared to whites. Overall, blacks are 7 times more likely to commit crime.

As of the 2008 NCVS, blacks committed 83% of the 520,000 violent crimes. This shows blacks are more likely to target whites then whites to blacks.

Given that your very first claim did not match the data that you yourself provided, your credibility is not sufficient for me to accept these claims on faith. Provide the data that supports these claims.

All I can say is it makes me think of this:

The dragon eats and swims in clear water; the one-footed dragon eats in clean water but swims in muddy water; fish eat and swim in muddy water. Now, I have not ascended to the level of a dragon but I have not descended to that of fish. I am perhaps a one-footed dragon!

Topic: Serious Discussion / Abortion

I reread your recent posts more carefully looking for your reasons and you’re right, I did reject them. I didn’t intend to I just didn’t recognize them.

Basically, I accept it because it is the law…

…the girl (usually young) has been attacked against her will.

She is already suffering the emotion of being violated and I can understand her not wanting a baby from the person who attacked her.

You qualified that “attacked” was the important part of “attacked against her will”.
You also qualified that it would have to be done very quickly.

Is this a valid summary of your reasons? If not please correct it. I want to be certain that i have a correct understanding of what you are saying.

If you would be kind enough to point me to the page where you discuss your views on abortion in the case of rape in depth I would appreciate it.

You have said what you feel but haven’t really said why you feel that way. I’m not trying to trick you I’m trying to get you to explain you reasoning. If your reasoning is not flawed you have nothing to fear.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Abortion

But again I say, the baby did nothing wrong. You have said in the past that abortions cause mental trauma. How does compounding the trauma of a rape with the trauma of an abortion help the situation? You mentioned “will” in there. Can you expand on how the woman’s will turns a murder into an abortion?

But why do you accept even that one point? I would not accept murdering 2 year olds, at least not without a very good reason. Why do you accept it in the case of rape?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Abortion

The real important parts of those questions is “why?” I know from our previous interactions that you consider the moment of conception to be the moment when a collection of cells becomes a baby. Thus we have an axiom:

AX: A fertilized egg is the moral equivalent of a baby.

If you feel this axiom mischaracterizes your position please correct it to be in line with your position.

If the above axiom is true then you feel that murdering a baby is permissable if the father was a criminal. The baby did nothing wrong. I wouldn’t support murdering a 2 year boy because his father was a rotten person. So why is it permissible in your view to murder this baby?
