I'm not saying it's bad idea. It's just that it means the end of stuff like decentralisation... much of its death of forums in general is due to the spread of internet access I guess tho

also, article 13 won't help at all, now it requires all sites regardless of size to have an upload filter or face fines

come to us, internet police

..

what do they even want us to filter? LGBTQ+ propaganda? yellow vest reports? child porn?

blarg. we already have a set of rules and a filter (implemented by admins going through the board and deleting the bad shit)

They want to filter anything copyrighted. Apparently parodies etc are allowed but how the fuck is a filter supposed to tell the difference?

Ah man, I was hoping we could keep talking about Discord and stuff but we go right back into politics somehow.
Anyways, Article 13 doesn't really effect me since I live in the US of A.

Discord is also political, indirectly, if only by the way it works and how it reflects what the internet is turning into


also, article 13 can go fuck itself. copyright is a giant pile of legal bullshit that only serves to protect parasites that live off of those who actually make things.

I still think if the internet hadn't become everyone's part of life like it has BakaCorp wouldn't have seized control

Copyright's implementation is dumb, especially how it more or less protects bigger people over smaller people. And how Nintendo and other people abuse it.

it's not dumb. big copyright exists exactly for that purpose, locking away rich people's IP in a glass cage. want to use something even remotely related to our IP? pay us big bucks or get sued into oblivion, peon.

Hey everyone. There's something that has been pointed out to me that I feel needs to be addressed.

For any new people that don't know, I'm a 3DS/Wii U enthusiast. I started posting to these forums in 2015, when I was about 13. Previously, I had played around with Advanced Map with the GBA Pokemon games, and I joined these forums because I was interested in NDS hacking as well. At this point, this was past the end of the last iteration of the SMG 2.5, but the forums was a welcoming place for gaining and sharing knowledge about ROM hacking, as well as having casual conversations about video games.

In 2016, I became a part of the Citra moderation team, and would continue to be a part of it until late last year (for personal reasons - the folks over there were, and still are, an absolute pleasure to work with.), because I was interested in the 3DS. I still engaged with these forums because it was a wonderful community. Over these two years, I also started learning how to program. Coming from a background of using many game editors and emulators, I admired these developers a lot. In particular, I always looked up to Arisotura because she has the ability to do these things, and I also liked the way that this board was ran.

Later on, the serious discussion sub-forum was opened up here. After the SMG era of this board, and then the 3DS/Wii U era, I feel that this marks the beginning of a new time where this is less of a ROM hacking board, and, really, chiefly a political discussion board. I must stress that that isn't the issue. Introducing new components to a board isn't a problem. It's sad to see ROM hacking on the decline here, but if Arisotura wants to adjust the scope of discussion, then that's still her discretion.

This did, however, become an issue for me when, in late 2016, PaperplateismGuy was banned. In this thread, a heated debate took place, in which Arisotura banned the user because of their opinion. I honestly don't really know or care about what the specifics of this debate are, it still rubs me off the wrong way regardless, and this was in fact met with a decent amount of backlash. I believe that Arisotura did end up apologizing for this and unbanning them, but I feel that this is worth mentioning.

As these forums shifted further and further away from ROM hacking, I lost interest. As previously stated, there's nothing inherently wrong with this, because in response to this I just stopped using the forums. At this point, I still had respect for Arisotura and her works, and followed updates on her projects like melonDS, although the previous events did make me feel uneasy.

This now brings us to 2019, and the reason why I am writing this reply. Recently, Arisotura came out as a girl, and started a GoFundMe for laser hair removal surgery. This is fine, I support the rights of trans people. However, this Twitter thread was brought to my attention. I will start by saying that, yes, I do not necessarily agree with Gimzie's initial reply, as making that kind of response to a tweet sharing a donation link is fairly uncalled for. However, the replies to this tweet aren't right. I won't go too deep into this interaction, but it came off as really rude for me personally. I was also informed, however, that Gimzie was banned for this reason, and their ban reason is:
transphobe and neolib suckup. your kind is not welcome here.

Banning someone for an interaction on another platform and using namecalling like this just doesn't sit well with me.

Having explained all of this, I want to make something abundantly clear. This is not an expose post! I am not "exposing" Ariso, or however you want to phrase it. The reason why I am making this post is that, personally, this was very disappointing for me. Kuribo64 was my first interaction with the online technology community, and I had respected them from the start, so to be seeing this now is upsetting for me.

since this is being dumped here without proper context...




oh and also



this kind of mentality is not welcome here, that's about it.

especially not after the last image. you just don't do that. you just don't.

Gimzie is not getting unbanned, period.


for the record, I deleted that post (the gofundme one) because I realized it came out as aggressive and going deeper would only start a shitstorm. I'm just in no mood for this kind of shit rn.

but that doesn't excuse how shitty Gimzie is.


the last comment in the first pic is fucking gold too.


the first post explicitly says "I am a transgender girl" and you go out of your way to say 'dude'? just fuck off.

I'm not arguing for Gimzie to be unbanned really, that wasn't the point of my reply.

So, uh, how was Gimzie being transphobic? I pretty much agreed with everything he stated in that snapshot

laser hair removal is not cosmetic when you're a trans girl. it's about having an actual passing, not getting assaulted or whatever when you go out, not being crushed by gender dysphoria, etc...



also re: PaperplateismGuy's ban


sorry but stating that the NoDAPL protesters deserved getting doused by subzero temperatures and getting hypothermia is not an opinion, it's being an asshole.

it's like saying that trans people should be dead.

and I am not tolerating this shit on my board. if you want to mingle with that kind of borderline-fascist people, I recommend you try 4chan.


PaperplateismGuy was eventually unbanned because they apologized in private for this post.

Well I think this all really is one big misunderstanding.

I'm guessing Gimzie doesn't really know what gender dysphoria is like or how laser hair removal could be important to a transfeminine person, it was probably more out of ignorance than anything.

Though I can also see where he's coming from... There are other ways to hide facial hair, and getting laser maybe shouldn't be the priority when you're totally out of money.

the part I take issue with is when he insists after being told he's wrong.


also, I see your point. it doesn't help you feel genuine when you need your 4+ layers of foundation to hope having any passing, though. I can't talk for everybody, but I wouldn't feel genuine (and I don't like makeup).


and also, the fucking neolib doctrine. "just get off your lazy ass and work on getting a job".

I would

but NOBODY WANTS TO FUCKING HIRE ME

it doesn't matter what I show them! I can show them melonDS and all the other shit I made, and they DON'T GIVE A FLYING FUCK!! always the same shit, "muh no professional experience".

hell, even when I applied at university for some course I totally had the skill for, I was turned down with the bullshit pretext of "not enough knowledge".

at this point I've gotten used to getting constantly turned down for no reason other than that I am a piece of shit and I don't belong in this world.

twitter is an utmost shitty place for arguments.

I'm not gonna takes sides, but I will comment on that exchange for a bit.

you don't "need" anything.

basically saying "you don't need, you just want". it comes off as rude the way you said it, though. careful.

instead of begging people to support you, how about working for it yourself?

that's assuming they don't anything to fill thier everyday, nor put effort into thier own transition.

if you're in financial trouble in the first place, why on earth are you spending it on something cosmetic such as this?!

finally, this is your argument. just this alone would've been enough.
I get your POV, but you lack information on the matter. for example, the fact that you don't have all the time in the world to get your transition done. you want it done while you're as young as possible, it's the only way to escape late puberty (and beyond) gender characteristics.

as Arisotura said, having thier facial hair removed is a requirement to pass a sort of.. test.
they didn't specificy that in your exchange, but have been going on about it for a very long while on here.

said "test" is to either legally qualify as a girl or be allowed to proceed further with transition, I don't honestly know which. it's something along those lines.
it's not just to visibly pass as a girl and be happy about themselves.

but thing is, they have already started thier transition. they can't just postpone this forever, let alone after pouring so much money into hormone therapy already.

also, if they leave facial hair alone they have a lot more chances to be harrassed. you wouldn't just sit through that either if you were in thier shoes.

Secondly, you possess many skills that are employable by the majority of tech-related fields. If you get out there and make an effort to get employed, things would not be much of an issue for you.

have you ever seen employers for what they are? have you seen the "we'll call you back if we feel like hiring you (but we won't haha)" system Arisotura's been rejected everywhere due to?
they even went through a reeducation program to be more employable, with a whopping zero results.

employers choose. you don't. if you haven't been through that shit, don't act like you know better. also, more assuming Arisotura doesn't even try to get a job.

It's not as if you're entitled to donations either. I do not see why somebody would have a compelling reason to donate to something that's purely cosmetic, especially when you state you're in financial trouble.

they're not. they're asking politely for goodwill.
they're not just banking the money you donate to them and using it to help deal with thier financial trouble.

they keep it aside for the stated purpose and work on thier financial trouble by themselves. they don't butter it up with the money you give.

admittedly, the 'likes don't buy shit' part wasn't nice

that's why I deleted the tweets before it devolved into a complete and total shitstorm


I'm just not in the best mood atm

Something ticked there.
Product is half, selling the product is half. You showed them melonDS okay, but how you did that's what is important.
Let's take a metaphor. You want to work in a car production company.
- you show them a car you built, but without body. Their reaction : "bruh you just messed with parts"
- you add a well designed body. Their reaction : "wow you done a full car!"

There's even some startups that succeed to live few years, without any product, but just with marketing. Seduce investors is enough.
To continue with that metaphor, there an empty car without any motor but with a very good design. People will still say shut up and take my money. I don't know how you showed them melonDS, but it looks like you didn't very "marketed" it.
