Topic: The Arts / Non Finite - Original Fiction - Feedback Recquested

The idea as such isn’t bad, but the world you describe is thermodynamically unsound, and you misuse some words (“…the fragment mutated…”); some sentences are just silly (“You see, throughout the infinite worlds, souls are the only true source of energy.”); your style needs some work – even in the first paragraph there are forts and strongholds for each of the ‘factions’ that are in the end identical by your own description, yet you somehow indicate they’re not, using just slightly different phrasing to describe practically the same things.

Also, grammar.

Plot-wise, since I guess that’s what you were really asking for, it seemed like an introduction of the villain, or an anti-hero at the very least – you should probably create some contrast to that, unless you feel you could shed some more light on this. If so – preferably some more thought-through lore behind that soulmass thing, because I don’t really buy it as it is now.
If an undeniably dark setting is what you want, go with that some more – focus on binding on-going events to that demon invasion, so you’d get some realistic background.

@OP
The first story kind of reeks of Assassin’s Creed and such to me, but maybe you could develop it in an interesting direction, since it’s quite well written. I like the idea of this thread, though. I believe it would pay off to have your stories a bit longer – one could compare the styles of each of the authors’ more easily and have a broader perspective on the universe you’re creating.

Topic: Off-topic / Why is MmeBunneh the OP of "Quality Threads: Dos and Don'ts"?

Because it was stickied, so it’s supported by mods – which they keep saying themselves over and over again anyway, and to me it counts as if a mod made it, even though I’d still prefer there were less hypocrisy to it.

At least one user has already said that they choose to ignore the thread because of the OP.


Honestly, if someone justifies their ignorance with aversion towards somebody else, it only proves their immaturity and takes away their vote privilege. But maybe that’s just me.

Don’t get me wrong, I get why it may be irritating for you, but it’s kind of late to make threads like this one…

Overzealous as ever, yet a fair response. Cheers.

Topic: Off-topic / Why is MmeBunneh the OP of "Quality Threads: Dos and Don'ts"?

I only find it slightly amusing that a thread explaining why bandwagons are bad was made by a user widely known for their… affinity for bunnies. Usually expressed by a plethora of infantile wording, allusions and images.

Well, you could probably also throw derailing threads in there, since Bunneh often does that, while her own guideline discourages from doing so.

Other than that, it’s a good link to justify a lock with, and as such it doesn’t matter who made it.

It’s not a bad story.

It has no narration, the setting is boring and cliché, and so are the characters. The dialogues are dull and are neither informative, nor amusing. There is no suspense, no drama, and the action is so predictable, it can hardly be called ‘action’ anymore. It is bad. Sorry to be harsh on you, but your denial will only result in more time being wasted, both yours as the author and the next person’s that reads it. If you want to develop yourself as an author, write something else from scratch – there is nothing constructive that can come from this setting.

It’s not my fault if kongregate made it so it’s all messed up.

All fora have a max cap for characters per post. Next time you post something of this length, divide it into parts as consecutive posts.

Nobody like what I do anyway lol

Then either give up and stop writing, or change the topic. Cross-overs are usually a bad idea, and the one you picked just doesn’t work very well.
Also, do yourself and the English language a favour and don’t butcher it. Either publish on a forum in your native language or don’t publish at all until you’ve improved your English. Deciphering what you try to say and then finding out it was but a waste of time isn’t the kind of feeling a reader can be grateful for.

Last thing – people on the Internet can easily be assholes, but when they comment on something you created to be commented on, listen to what they have to say. Repeating “It’s not a bad story” and the like will never let you improve yourself, even if it’s true.

So much for my two cents…

Topic: The Arts / Super Chibi Knight - Soundtrack Preview

I like it.
Question, though – are the samples you linked just cuts of longer melodies or are they the whole thing each and you’re going to loop them after they end? If it’s the latter, I’m sure it would sound better if the original pieces were a bit longer. Looped 50ish seconds can be annoying in games, especially the light kind I remember Chibi Knight was.

You don’t speak English, I get it, but what’s the point in publishing whatever this is in English if you can’t even conjugate? Bad story aside, this is just painful to read. Lack of any editing whatsoever doesn’t make it better, either.

Topic: Serious Discussion / History: Role of Air Force in WW2

I’d say you’ve covered it nicely, although you could also toss in the bombings of Dresden and Warsaw, as they left both cities ground to dust, and both were planned military operations focused on maximized usage of air crafts. That, and Normandy, since Airborne Infantry played a huge role there.

Also, not sure how much Luftwaffe was involved in this project, but what about V1/V2 rockets?

On another note…

what other ways did the air force played decisive roles in determining the outcome of the war?

Again, this isn’t about US Air Force this much, since they only incorporated the technology years after the war, but what about Germany’s first jets and wing air-crafts? Do you, in your presentation, count technological advancement as an “outcome of a war” or what you mean by that is just how planes influenced Allied victory?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is Addiction A Disease?

Relevant article explaining in detail why addiction is a disease.

In defence of sportsmaster19’s first post which I partly agree with, though, I’d say all the confusion comes from redefining the word “disease” as such, which no longer applies to a state of mind or body there is a cure for, or which can just “pass”, which is what diseases are “culturally” (and which is still present as seen whenever something – e.g. a thought, a series of events – is described as “cancerous” – which on the other hand sounds more dramatic than the old-fashioned “ill”).

Both culturally and medically “addictions” were just “predilections” up to the 19th century, and this is why addictions are often hard to diagnose even today.

Could you explain how you see this? It seems rather contradictory to me, given that the Ten Commandments are from the Old Testament and still are arguably the most important part of the divine law Christians are supposed to follow. Well, maybe second to “Thou shalt love thy neighbour”.

With gender roles, women all follow the same patterns, and men all follow the same patterns…with no gender roles, there are no patterns.

With no gender roles, there are no gender patterns. There still are simply human patterns, but what is humanity without genders is a question for another discussion, I guess.

I believe this would shortly summarise my feelings towards all that unisex fashion – it’s redundant.

No one said anything about unisex.


I used the phrase “unisex fashion” to avoid repeating the lengthy explications and clarifications. Maybe I shouldn’t have, maybe you’re picky. Doesn’t matter now.
Women are by all means equal to men, but it doesn’t mean they’re the same thing or should be one.

Sure. But it doesn’t mean they can’t do the same things men do, either.


I didn’t say they couldn’t.
But I do say so now. Men can’t ovulate, women can’t urinate while standing. Arguments ridiculous as they sound, yet enough to invalidate your point, which I actually agree with, just not as generally as you made it sound.

Not to be rude, but instead of using analogies to illustrate your point, could you just define exactly what it is you’re talking about? Because women aren’t food. It makes no sense.

Regardless of one’s gender, wouldn’t you grow bored, with time, with people following exactly the same patterns?

It isn’t my intention to be rude towards @karmakoolkid here, but seeing as you seem to be not very fond of the way he expresses himself, how would you feel if you found yourself in a town inhabited only by people you’d need a “plastic decoder ring” to understand? I believe this would shortly summarise my feelings towards all that unisex fashion – it’s redundant.

Women are by all means equal to men, but it doesn’t mean they’re the same thing or should be one.


Using archetypes from hundreds of years ago to define roles for women today sounds ridiculous, unless they are literally timeless qualities, like childbirth.


Thousands of years, even. Though, it’s not about defining women’s roles, but referring to cultural background – an archetypical woman is not a role model, but an abstract image one doesn’t need to follow, but should be aware of its existence, “pay some respect to it”. It wouldn’t be much of an exaggeration to say that the role archetypes played in human history was greater than that of religions – although the latter often helped shape archetypes or created their own.

That’s the only example I can think of that falls into that category though, the rest, like women being weaker or needing protecting, are social constructs.

I realise your opinion on significance of archetypes may differ from mine, but this post in particular makes me think, though: are you sure you’re not confusing archetypes with stereotypes?

It’s not as though you’re actually going to be dragging your wounded buddies back from enemy lines like Rambo all that often.


Soldiers are supposed to be trained, so that it wouldn’t happen that often. Physical strength is required, but it’s also completely obtainable by females – up to the level of an average male soldier at the very least. If technology was all there is to war now, the technological superiority of the US over Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan would easily let Americans not only win those wars, but also greatly reduce their casualties.

This is untrue. I’m saying the archetype of a woman is becoming – or it already has – somewhat obsolete and misplaced. Women as such are irreplaceable.

I’m sure we’re not anywhere in the realm of post human yet, but when males start to assume traditionally female roles, and women assume traditional male roles—up to and including increased testosterone production and decreased fertility—are even the physiological lines between the genders starting to blur?

Well, I can already see that as an argument in the next political debate on gender parities.

The world’s going to be boring as all hell with just one gender. Or two pretending to be one, which is the same in the end.

Here’s a question for you: Assuming you’re heterosexual, do you think about making a move on your platonic female friends?

I guess it’s worked the other way for me so far, up to the point where I stopped really believing that an acquaintance can ever be platonic – there’s always some sexual tension, just one of the parties might not realise it.

Though, it is rather interesting that you say you’re perceived as an anti-feminist and you’re on the active side of “making a move”, while I’ve been many times described by women as a blatant philogynist and I’m the one moves are made on…


And, what the fuck is this shit of bitching about how YOU made a mistake on the count and now are getting yer panties in a bunch because I “corrected” ya?

The person who uses a phrase like the bolded part is no friend of feminism. It’s an ugly remark that he’s used at other times, and I’m frankly astounded that he seems to use it without even recognizing the inherent misogyny implicit in saying it, even while he’s bashing other supposed sexists. HE’S a hipster. He just doesn’t know it.

That’s irrelevant as long as he knows what he’s talking about. Oh, wait.

Point taken.


It isn’t mother nature pulling the strings though. Each of the examples you listed were society-based. The image of women as a people who need to be shielded from harm is a social construct. That it’s been around for a long time isn’t a justification, anymore then it would be a justification for any abhorrent practice we’d unwaveringly condemn (ie. slavery). Like, the fact that women menstruate doesn’t preclude them from being warriors, and it shouldn’t take much contemplation to realize the one has nothing to do with the other.


That is precisely what I was getting at – pardon me if not clearly enough. The archetype of a woman itself is a “social construct”, as you well phrased it, and although it holds a very noble position in culture, culture is its boundaries. The world has changed too much since the times when archetypes were made for them to validate societal decisions regarding everyone as a whole, while they still “do the thing” when it comes to dealing with individuals. Reality and culture hardly at all correlate with each other any longer.

And I think this is a major reason why feminists are often maligned today. People think that what they’re demanding is more perks, and you can point out that they already have more perks than men do anyway. But equality isn’t the same as affirmative action – it’s not about giving one group of people MORE, it’s about trying to get as close as possible to gender parity, which means similar responsibilities as well…like fighting on the frontlines.


While I’m all for every form of equality, it would appear I’m against what you call “affirmative action”, for reasons stated in the previous paragraph. I think that very soon, if it hasn’t already, the last bond between reality and culture will take the form of such primeval differences between females and males: both genders have been becoming very alike over the last two hundred years, both in social roles and psychologically; what’s going to happen when they become the exact same thing on every ground other than the strictly physiological one?

Allow everyone to be whatever they like, but don’t force them into societies where everyone is the same.

I’m sounding like a conservative hipster, aren’t I?

But put into legal terms to prevent one gender from taking on the same duties as another, solely on the basis of that gender? It may be a value-claim to define it as right or wrong, but I think it’s a fact to say that it manifests as discrimination.

Sometimes such “discrimination” can be a perk, actually. Like the fact that women in most countries are never subject to call to arms – well, unless all other options have been exhausted. The tradition of calling up men has been around for so long, that saying they are discriminated because of that is almost like saying women are discriminated by nature because they have periods.

There are other examples, like social acceptance of male prostitution, homosexuality or the tendency for divorce cases to end up with mothers getting to keep their children regardless of how much worse they are at parenting than their ex-husbands (which isn’t necessarily true of course, but this aspect is often overlooked).

So I guess you can say my opinion on this is what it is because I refuse to call Mother Nature a chauvinistic pig.
