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?

#2 Re: Off-Topic Discussion » BED WAR » Yesterday 19:32:08

merging two "BED WAR" topics

#3 Re: Off-Topic Discussion » if you had a truck what would you put in it » Yesterday 19:31:03

so this seems more like a forum game than anything (but no, before you make that thread, don't.)

locking per no topical value

Well, we _must_ be for ourselves in the long run; the mild and generous are only more justly selfish than the domineerin

What about it? Every choice is made as best as you know how; if the outcome is pure chance, or if you have no information or experience with which to make the decision, then there's no decision-making required. It's out of your hands.

What if a person becomes selfless and devotes their life to doing good works that otherwise are just plain detrimental to themselves?

For the hypothesis to work, "pleasure" must also be happiness, warmth, companionship, love, satisfaction, etc. etc. - i.e. every good feeling, or a lack of or lessening of bad feelings.

So to be appreciated for a selfless act, or to experience the pleasure in others that your selfless act creates, is pleasure. I could argue (cynically) that an entirely selfless person simply hasn't found selfish choices that bring them greater pleasure, or that to switch from selflessness to selfishness would create pain in others and therefore in that person, which they'd want to avoid.

Actively making a choice that's detrimental to you is still expected to be more pleasurable than painful.

And if you are forced to do something, doing it is - to your knowledge - more pleasurable (or less painful) than the alternative.

I see. I guess a lot of this does seem to equate something like that. People do things that they hope will make them happier for whatever reason they choose to do them. (if we are on the same page)

also, this quote comes to mind but idk how relevant it is: "Well, we must be for ourselves in the long run; the mild and generous are only more justly selfish than the domineering" -- it's still selfish but in a just sense. maybe.

anywho

heynk pls limit your tautology

#7 Re: Off-Topic Discussion » Off-Topic Discussion thread » Yesterday 01:09:41

I guess getting married isn't as important as it should be maybe? Like if anyone can do it then... anywho uh... I first thought you meant polyandry (had to look it up).

#8 Re: Game Discussion » Farewell. » Yesterday 01:02:00

thread has outlived its purpose

That's not a plan. That's the nature of every conscious (and possibly unconscious) organism.

Whether you realise it or not, every choice you've made and will ever make is decided so as to maximise your own pleasure (in the most abstract sense of the term). Lessening of pain is perhaps also a form of pleasure.

I agree with this, but I get stuck on a certain concept. What about risking for reward? I don't mean purely gambling. Again, at the most abstract, when you risk something you're actually hoping for whatever you consider to be better.

Now what comes to mind is the stock market or casinos. But what about if you come down with the Greater Good virus or whatnot? What if a person becomes selfless and devotes their life to doing good works that otherwise are just plain detrimental to themselves?

i.e., volunteering. Or in a more extreme case, Gandhi's fasting... these things don't inherently benefit the person's pleasure.

Do we resolve this by saying that working toward a higher purpose is also a pleasure?

#11 Re: Game Suggestions » Switch portals » 2018-04-19 16:29:13

Merged topics somewhat at request I guess. It's not that big of a deal but the original OP never got replies so

#12 Re: Game Suggestions » account deleter block » 2018-04-19 02:55:58

and with that, it's high time we lock the thread

thanks for playing everyone

Atmosphere changes: cannot decide when to repeat. Cannot decide when to turn down.

#14 Re: Forum Games » Choose your starter pokémon! (Kanto edition) » 2018-04-17 23:14:58

yeah I'm thinking this is essentially the more complicated rock paper scissors game so locking it would seem

hey just a reminder, please don't jump on the religion debate as that's too narrowly focused and already discussed. if you want, go revive that debate thread. Here we're considering the intersection of community and touchy subjects (specifically, religion)

so in that regard shh

edit:
this makes things a little hard on the eyes but I merged Enurp's complaint about AK's level into AK's topic about AK's level

edit 2:
and unlocked topic. oops

why could he post? I can't say.

#18 Re: Forum Discussion » Have you ever witnessed a raid? » 2018-04-14 04:31:22

thanks. moving to forum discussion
I deleted the threads. Raid system worked but kicked in right once I logged in so...

#19 Re: Forum Discussion » hey diff » 2018-04-13 22:41:37

I don't think you're ownership and generally speaking if you're addressing a topic to a user you can just PM them but you probably know that

locking, thx

#20 Re: Forum Discussion » Why are people making testing bot topics, or testing the bot in reply? » 2018-04-13 22:38:11

for future reference, you can make a thread with a topic we can actually discuss AND use it as a test thread! We'd never be the wiser

#21 Re: Off-Topic Discussion » testing watchful » 2018-04-13 22:33:00

on that note, please don't make test topics

and consider making your bot a bit more transparent as polling certain pages a lot can be annoying and slow things down

and locking I guess

#22 Re: Bug Reports » gold member wrong date » 2018-04-12 15:45:24

I suppose that's up for debate then. I could see it either way

Hi! I know this topic’s delivery is roundabout at best but there are some good topics hidden in there. If we’re just going to spout nonsense as we have then there’s not really a topic here at all.

And no I haven’t had crawfish or crab. Actually didn’t know the former was a food.

I don’t think rising ocean levels are good for fish when they leach into potential toxic coastal storage centers (or just our industrialized lifestyle in general)
