I assume you mean channels you haven't already collaborated with, in which case I would recommend Troy Leavitt
Tim would have to create roles with permission to view the message history
@Timcast By the way, it would be helpful for people to easily determine whether or not you're online by setting up the server to display your role separately from other members. You can access that through Server Settings -> Roles
He's an admin by default since he's the server owner
Oh no, apparently Shia LeBouf has raised another flag.
I wonder how long it will be before 4chan finds it this time.
Yes, that's a very good idea. It's how I've got my own server set up - the invite link sends yo to #lobby, but that's the only thing you can see until you're assigned a role.
Yeah, the bot solutions are nice, but they're usually pretty complicated to set up
I'm also partial to the IRC role system of Everyone < Voice < Halfop < Op(erator) < Admin
What if we find a different gorilla fight video? Are we allowed to post that, or can we *only* repost that one?
It could also be a portmanteau of pool and hooligan, which is how I read it until you said that
@SmallPrice I think you're assuming honor where there may not be any. Or at least, I know I don't have that much honor.
@Timcast Your server is growing fast enough that you may want to consider creating a role to give to users that you would trust in helping to manage the server and the people on it, especially given how often you typically travel. It would suck to spend X hours on a flight and get to your hotel/hostel, log on to Discord, and find that while you were out, a troll got onto the server and managed to invite a bunch of their troll buddies, but nobody could get rid of them.
There are some bots you could look into getting in here that have automated protections for that as well, though
One of the other servers I'm on only has about 5 moderators for over a thousand users, but it's also a pretty quiet server overall
Yeah, a much better rule than "No hate speech" would be "No speech", because that's purely objective. You can't talk.
Every time I'm granted power on a forum/channel/whatever, the first thing I do is I ban myself
Because if I've got the power to ban people, why not start with the worst offender?
Back when I was in scanlation (on IRC) I was an operator on several channels and I was admin on one, but that was mostly because the group's leader let their channel lapse and I reclaimed it for them
I think the biggest channel I was in back then was 75 people
@WOODY Except for the part where you have to figure out what permissions to give the bot so that it can do everything for you
The bot I use didn't have good documentation around what permissions it needed, so it took me a few days to get everything right
I got one bot set up right. Why would I switch to another bot and go through another potential headache?
Maybe you should make another text channel for general discussion so that the distinction is more apparent
@Kori Tainaka I think <#398973785426100234> is for shitposting
From what I've read, the Cole Memo was a "guidance document" and not an actual law. I don't know if that affects the outcome of its repeal
Well that and the fact that big pharma pushes opioids these days
I'm reading a lot of speculation that the repeal of the Cole Memo may push Congress to fully legalize marijuana
@Timcast What if we democratically elect you as our leader?
@Porcelain chips I'm not sure the Democrat or Republican parties as a whole are self-aware enough to realize that
Just because it's a "narrative" doesn't mean it doesn't have some truth to it
Honestly, I think what we need before another alternative party (because technically, the Libertarians *are* an alternative) is term limits and age limits for all political offices
@GingaBomber You find American politics interesting? I prefer satire based on American politics:
The Ephebians believed that every man should have the vote. Every five years someone was elected to be Tyrant, provided he could prove that he was honest, intelligent, sensible, and trustworthy. Immediately after he was elected, of course, it was obvious to everyone that he was a criminal madman and totally out of touch with the view of the ordinary philosopher in the streets looking for a towel. And then five years later they elected another one just like him, and really it was amazing how intelligent people kept on making the same mistakes.
- Terry Pratchett, *Small Gods*
@Deleted User @WOODY Helping others is something that's heavily emphasized by Christian values, upon which most of Western civilization is built, but the main focus of Christianity's "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is the poor and disabled that are right in front of you, as opposed to the Democrats' "Oh no, these people halfway around the world are so disadvantaged! We must help them!"
@Timcast At this point I'd almost recommend creating a new <#398858182455459853> and renaming this channel
@GingaBomber I think you mean 10 minutes after they join
I don't know if I wasn't able to see anything for 10 minutes or everybody was just silent for >10 minutes when I joined last night
@Kori Tainaka Actually, I think the even worse thing is that they didn't make the mods display separately from all the other users
@Bruce That's still more power than the rest of us have
It also sounds distinctly anti-free speech, which is odd for Tim
I think we should ban the word "Gas" as hate speech :P
Wait, I had a better idea than banning "gas" as hate speech
I can see it now. "Hey ServerMember12534, how's it going?"
But @Timcast, haven't you heard that numbers can be racist?
Oh hey @Timcast, if it helps any, not everybody is a total slave to what the media says. I believe everything you say 100% except for the bit where you say not to trust everything you say.
@Bryanluvzyou Half the time the message of the day in the good news channel would just be "There isn't a nuclear holocaust yet"
The other half of the time it would be "man rescues kitten from tree"
We need to use hands as a measurement, like when measuring a horse's height
Oh boy. You know it's going to be an eventful week when Yvette Falarca makes the news (again)
@BigBoppinBoslet I used to play World of Tanks. I also used to play Armored Warfare.
I liked Armored Warfare before they came out with their new model in January of last year. I liked it over World of Tanks because there was a PVE mode
Their new model is just less fun for me overall, because apparently the devs decided that the XM1A3 was overpowered, so they nerfed just about everything about the tank
The XM1A3 was the first tier 10 tank I got in AW
As for WoT, I don't think I ever got past Tier 9. I got to the E-75, then I decided to grind down the American heavy tree and I think I only got to the T-32 (or whichever tank came after the T-29 in the tree. I don't remember exactly which one it was)
@BigBoppinBoslet To be fair, I have all the Tier 10 MBTs in AW
I had no plans to get the E100 when I finally got my E75
Between the Tiger II, the E75, and the E100 I think the E75 is the best overall (for its tier)
We should probably move this conversation over there
Yeah, since almost all the top-tier tanks never made it past blueprints
Even then they only had two Maus prototypes, and only one of them had a proper turret
I never really saw the Chi-Ri in WoT since I was in the upper tiers by the time the Japanese tanks were introduced
I played the Pzkw IV back when it still had the Vader-helm Panther turret as an upgrade
I started in late '09 or early '10, about 4 months after my brother started. I can't remember when exactly.
You want to see what my brother's stats were before he stopped playing?
And here are my stats before I stopped playing http://wotlabs.net/na/player/revan_the_revanchist
My "Recent" stats were helped by the fact that I was playing in more platoons with my brother and players of his tier
Oh yeah. I lurked on that from time to time too.
Didn't that outgrow the forum post limit something like 3 times?
I'll ask ForcestormX to lean on The Chieftain's shoulder to get you guys to post more 😛
I think my brother even went and got one of the WoT mods that replaced the crew voices with MLP clips
Well, neither does (did) Top Gear, but there was a Top Gear voiceover pack as well
I tried it for a while, but I was dissatisfied with the clip choices
@Timcast If you haven't already started researching it, you may want to cover the Spectre and Meltdown issues with processors
Am I the only one who finds it weird how wide the slashes here in Discord are?
they're at least 1.3 times as wide as I think they should be
I think it might just be the font that Discord uses
I just looked in my profile settings and I don't see anything that looks like it
Maybe your connection to the server Tim has selected isn't that good
Needed to unflip the table that @Jihadtangle flipped. Can't have disorder in the newsroom
I've disabled TTS on my own Discord server as well
It's just my personal server for me and my friends. We use it for D&D mainly
I've got it set up for when (if) we get a larger userbase as well, but there aren't many people on it yet
@AC says sub to PewDiePie Not yet. I think the admins and/or Tim need to decide on them
My server has 8 members, a fake test member that I registered to figure out permissions with, and a bot
@AC says sub to PewDiePie Yeah, but I don't use it as an alt or a sock
@AC says sub to PewDiePie I think the typical definition of an "alt" is a profile that most people don't know to link to you so that you can say controversial things and people won't get angry with you in particular
It's much easier to create an instant invite and then just post it in the chat than to wonder at how many members there are
:/ I could have sworn those messages only pop up when someone first joins
I don't remember where to look on my own server for the setting
@GingaBomber Hard to say. I would be surprised if it more than doubles the current population, but I could be wrong. Tim does have quite a few Twitter followers.
I don't know if Tim plans to put out an invite link on Twitter, but I personally think that we probably need more moderators or a lobby channel and roles to delegate access to other channels before that happens, because anything posted on Twitter will be rife for brigading/raiding/trolling/etc.
I think most people's thought process on that was "Even if Donald represents the elite, HRC definitely doesn't represent the people."
Both the Alt Right and the Far Left misclassify Tim as supporting the opposite extreme, so it's not very surprising he made that list.
@Timcast inb4 Harbinger "ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL"
To be fair, they're rebuilding the Extended Universe piecemeal
Timothy Zahn wrote "Thrawn" for Disney since they bought SW
That's because Zahn is the only one who can properly write Thrawn
@GingaBomber Not retconned. They completely invalidated the old EU
Anything written for the EU prior to Disney's acquisition is non-canon
Well, if Disney let Zahn recreate Thrawn in the new EU, he'll probably push for Mara Jade, Talon Karrde, etc. as well
Now, after where Episode VIII went, I'm not sure they'll let him do Mara Jade, but the rest are still doable
It's a short story, I have an edition of one of his other books (Outbound Flight maybe? can't remember) that has it
@GingaBomber Let's see... short is "about one standard Timothy Zahn chapter" or slightly longer
@GingaBomber And if I recall correctly, Allegiance is the book where they all server under Thrawn in the end, discounting the new Thrawn book written for the new EU
It's been a few years since I last read any of the old-EU books he wrote, I should re-read them
I have yet to find a Timothy Zahn book I didn't like, even outside the SW EU books
After what they pulled in VIII I'm glad they didn't
They wouldn't have done Heir to the Empire justice
@Grenade123 Did you watch Troy Leavitt's video on that?
@SmallPrice I don't think so, because it's well established in the original trilogy that Palpatine is "Not a Good Person ©"
Ergo, anything Palpatine would have done would be "the wrong thing to do"
Well, at least it's hard to confuse it with other medical centers
Hang on, I only got back from work about half an hour ago and I'm still catching up on news and stuff
@pukeblood "nookyoolahr" (exaggerated) is actually an accepted pronunciation of "nuclear", according to the dictionary
@ping Nuclear reactors anywhere are very safe. The only major nuclear accidents in history were flukes or design flaws that have been fixed in newer plants
@ping The problem that caused Chernobyl was a design flaw that had already been fixed in reactors 10 years younger than it, and Fukushima's problem was the backup generators being flooded because the tsunami was larger than any recorded
I'm relatively sure the problem that caused Three Mile Island was also a design flaw that had already been fixed in newer plants
@Grenade123 > People are afraid of nuclear power because the EPA and the media tells them to be afraid of it despite not knowing shit about it.
The waste issue was fixed, but Carter (I think) outlawed Breeder reactors in the U.S. because at some point the fuel is weapons-grade
Wind and solar are both affected by the weather, as well
No matter how good your power grid is there will always be dead spots with nothing but solar/wind power
Not to mention solar panels rarely (if ever) actually pay for themselves on a consumer scale
@ping No, I don't have a source, but the people whose panels have payed for themselves most likely live in very sunny areas that rarely have clouds
@GingaBomber Not to mention mining the materials for the batteries
Actually, I think the best argument for nuclear power is that The Simpsons, which has a track record of foreshadowing (if not outright predicting) future events, features Homer Simpson working at a nuclear power plant
@GingaBomber Yeah, the least efficient part of a car's engine is the combustion reaction
I think that's because he was going to concentrate funding on NASA, but it was still a *very* optimistic estimate
@ping I would argue that the moon is very worth going to because then we could build larger structures/ships in orbit due to the lower gravity
There's still a larger risk of it falling out of LEO than falling out of LLO (Low Lunar Orbit) though
@ping The same way anything falls out of any orbit. It gets too heavy for the speed it's moving
Yes, its orbit would degrade slower, but it would degrade even more slowly in low lunar orbit
Oh, another reason to go to the moon, as @Dionara just mentioned, is getting stuff to the orbit to whatever you're building
1/6th the gravity = less fuel to get materials up
@ping Would it be any harder than building a self-sustaining colony on Mars?
If so, then that's the only reason not to colonize the moon
We would still need some sort of covering for the colony
@Dionara Pretty sure the answer to that for all of us would be "No, I don't have a degree and I haven't taken classes on the subject"
Nuclear power I'm an armchair expert via my brother, who studied Nuclear Engineering for his B.S.
Now I'm becoming a bit less of an armchair expert in Materials Science via my brother since he's studying that for his Ph.D.
I find Mat.Sci. harder to understand than nuclear power
@CreativeRealms I believe NASA has proposed that for research expeditions
Basically, get out of Earth orbit, land on a comet, and use that to get closer to your objective before leaving again
@Grenade123 In theory, any comet should be structurally stable enough to ride. The only trick would be attaching to it for the ride
I think we need to get some more scientists in here too
That way we aren't just speculating on everything
About the only things I can speak with authority on are programming and nuclear power (again, thanks to my "armchair expert" status)
And even in programming, I acknowledge there are languages I know basically nothing about
I also know enough of the following to be "dangerous": Lisp, Erlang, Ada, FORTRAN
I've looked into C# on occasion, but the companies I've worked for haven't been that big into C#
@ping I know there's more to it than that, but they're both supersets of Java
Any valid Java code is also valid Groovy/Kotlin code
Any valid C code is valid C++ code, ergo C++ is a superset of C
Give me one line of code that would compile under C but not under C++
Yes it does. It just has better syntax for those now, so people rarely use the old C pointer casts
I'm not well versed on struct initializers, so I can't speak to those
