Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

I know this probably isn't serious but I should clarify that when I said to pick one or more from the list, this is a case where less is more. In fact I'll set a hard restriction of only 3 things from the list. I think picking just one option from the list is perfect, and then you can add more if you want to expand the idea.

cyborg pirate ninja jesus vs. the entirety of texas

To me this feels more like a character idea + narrative idea. Don't give me a conflict (plot), but focus on the status quo, like "cyborg pirate ninja jesus exists and he lives in Texas". This is still a character idea though so in order to be a setting idea, it should be more like a feature of the world. I can't think of an example for this character, but consider the idea of a holy empire governed by a prophet king. The fact that it's a prophet king tells us about the system they live in, not the person himself. Whereas "cyborg pirate ninja jesus" just tells us about a person and nothing about their place in the world.

Also, sorry to crap on your ideas even more, but they're all derivative. Naming a real world religion does not count as a religion idea. I'm looking for a completely made up religion like "they worship pencils". Ninjas have already been done, how about finjas - half fish half ninja.

EDIT: to be clear the ideas aren't inherently bad, they're just not what I'm looking for

Hello, I'm looking for setting ideas for a 50x50 world to make in EEO. Pick 1-3 options from the list and try to come up with a unique idea for it. I recommend picking only one, but you can expand into other areas if you want.

  • Geography/Terrain

  • Religion

  • Culture

  • Politics

  • Weather

  • Plants/Creatures/Living things

  • Architecture

  • Magic

  • Cosmic events

  • Anything else you find interesting related to setting

Try to define a status quo instead of a narrative, but if your setting idea comes bundled with a narrative idea then I guess I don't really mind.

Same dude. The other day I was thinking about how a significant part of my social life was in EE when I was like 12-14 yrs old. I had friends irl too but at the time I wasn't able to relate to them much, while with EE friends, I felt a little more at home, a little more understood. There aren't many games that I have played consistently for years, but I did play EE for a long time and this is probably why. Even if you don't make a bunch of friends, there's a strong social element in EE. When you're trying to beat a world, other people are playing along with you. When you're building, people can join and watch or help. At least for me, I often made worlds because I wanted to impress people and prove something. It's not the only reason to play the game, but filling a hole for lonely people is pretty powerful. I might change my mind later, but right now I feel like this is the essence of EE. Over the years I made a lot of posts about why EE was dying, how to save it, how a "spiritual successor" should be etc., and I might have been right sometimes, but now I feel like I was kinda missing the point. In order for something to be a spiritual successor, it has to inherit the spirit of EE. It's in the name.

This is actually in one of my worlds called "Skullz & Friends!", you should be able to find it in an archive. I have the .eelvl file as well. I believe it was drawn by GKABYSSFLORIDA iirc.

I should have some old EE pics to share but they're on an old pc so I'll do it later I guess //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/smile

Thank god for this update, forums have run so dry out of content that people have resorted to discussing what the topic graveyard should be called.

Jokes aside, this looks insane. Probably my favourite graphics I have seen in anything EE-related, the smaller palette makes a huge difference!

#9 Re: Game Discussion » Here's a deal. » 2021-05-03 17:09:54

I get that this post is a joke but I feel that there is some seriousness sprinkled in, correct me if I'm wrong.

You're doing a great disservice to centuries of scientific knowledge, and the hard work Everybody Edits fans do in debating the merits of our beloved cultural icons, which could go down in history as our era's greatest pieces of art and tools for human creativity. It appears modern youths are increasingly susceptible to anti-intellectual, "funposting" rhetoric which further muddies the waters and makes discourse and social progress around Everybody Edits increasingly difficult.

I don't know, I'm pretty sure making a joke doesn't stop people from debating the topic, nor should it be considered "anti-intellectual". I don't have anything else I'd like to contribute to the topic besides a joke, so that's what I post. What I said was a bit rude, but that's all. I think that if people don't discuss a topic, it's because they don't want to, not because "funposts" make it difficult. And when discourse or "social progress" is difficult in certain areas, it's because people just aren't talking about those topics. I've had this many times where I'll make a long **** post about something that's interesting to me, and then I'll get little to no interaction afterwards. It happens.

Play this game. It's free to play, has really good music and gives you the nostalgia of old Newgrounds flash games (it actually includes some Newgrounds characters like Pico).

Here's a teaser:

I believe they are still adding new levels over time, so there's that to look forward to.

I don't hate it, but for me the problem is that our lectures aren't even live, they're recorded videos. Which is more time efficient because I can just watch them on 2x speed, but I'm also bad at actually watching them regularly. It's gotten to the point where I only watch lectures when I actually need to know the content for an assignment.

All people who use their PC as part of a job have took an interview. An interview question included "Are you able to use computers"? And they pick employees based on their total skills with PCs. Yet they still assume that people they handpicked as "being able to use PCs" do not know BASIC INTERNET SAFETY nor do they know about malware/ransomware.

That's not what's being assumed. To me it seems that there is no assumption at all, instead they acknowledge that there is a risk so they do what they can to mitigate that risk. You're the one making crazy assumptions. Your claim is that if a person does well enough in an interview to land a job, there is no chance that they mess up basic internet safety? There are many examples where the people whose literal job is to prevent these issues manage to mess it up, let alone the other employees working with computers, so your claim is easily disproven. As Diff already mentioned, WannaCry is a great example.

Sometimes apps need to be updated. Bugs are fixed, improvements are made, and sometimes those improvements mean that the old app can no longer work. You can't trust users to do it themselves. Users'll just smash the "nah, later" button until the sun burns out, and then you end up with WannaCry. You want a system that only does what you ask it to and are willing to take responsibility when you fail to do what is necessary on your own, install a really barebones Linux or something.

That's what they're paid to do though - use their PC responsibly. They were taught basic internet safety and what not to do. If they install WannaCry, they'll be fired. They don't need to be all babysitted. I used a non-dictated PC with admin permissions when I was 5 to play flash games, and did not install any virus or malware. That's also when the ads were agressive and had no filters, so all were "YOU HAVE (1) NEW NOTIFICATION" or "YOU WON AN IPHONE CLAIM NOW!"

Firing someone after the fact doesn't count as security.

I'm assuming you're talking about whatever HG stands for. But now that you've shortened it down to a two letter abbreviation, you have unlocked the ability to morph into different usernames at will, by telling people that HG stands for different things. Maybe one day you are Happy Gamer, on another day you are Hapless Ghost. Maybe on gym day you are HUGE GAINS. You are now capable of adapting to any situation. I call this phenomenon the "Chameleon Username".

You're overthinking it. It's dumb to feel self-conscious about your username - consider that you probably don't rate other people by their nicknames, and so you're probably the only one who thinks yours is cringe.

They're all just names, created years ago, and we take each others' for granted. Stick with it; it's annoying when people change their nicks.

I agree with what you're saying but being self-conscious about your username is not the only reason to want to change it. I think of it kind of like wearing nice clothes. It doesn't need to be about impressing others, you can just buy nice clothes because you like them.

You shouldn't change your username for others, but to me it sounds like 2B genuinely doesn't like their username. I wouldn't want to tell someone to stick with a username they don't like just because it's mildly annoying for us to remember who they are. Also not entirely sure if 2B wants to change their nick on this forum or if they just wanted a new username to use elsewhere in the future.

This topic is making me realise a lot of us have pretty bad usernames lol, myself included.

I've thought about this a lot actually, at least for a few years. Over time I've thought of lots of usernames but never decided on one. Recently I came up with one which is by far my favourite. The lesson here is that it might take a long time to find a "perfect" name. On the other hand, your username doesn't need to be perfect, so maybe just pick the first thing that isn't cringe to you.

The way I've been coming up with usernames is mainly using two things:
- words that sound cool to me
- references to media that I like
I've also seen people do the first one, except it's a completely made up word, but I've never really been able to do that. Some people can also get nice usernames by taking their real name and changing/adding something.
