needless to say, I feel much better after a yellow vest protest

I feel like this brought us together a bit

but blegh

I guess I like the idea of having this be a little nook of sorts


it's just that I felt that I was the only one trying to encourage discussion and all

and, dunno. it's a bit of a vicious circle, if nobody's posting, nobody will bother posting because why would you bother if nobody's going to reply, etc...

for me personally, it's been mostly a lack of conversation topic, i guess

things aren't going too swell IRL so i tend to never really have my mind on any sole thing, and definitely not long enough to start a discussion

though, like i said before at some point (unless i imagined the whole thing, which i probably did): i tend to reply to topics, not really start conversations. i never have much trouble adding to talks, but starting them? not so much.

well dunno

about starting threads


I also dislike that the serious forum was seen as "this is a political board now"

it was more aimed towards things like IRL issues that you might want to discuss without being publicly visible (and indexed by Google)

I just was informed that this is most likely going to be closed. I know I haven't been that active here in the past few months (besides just viewing it), but I'm gonna be crazy sad to see it go.

i personally saw it as that. yeah a lot of political convo was in there but i still saw it all as IRL talk and vents and stuff

welp. honestly I'd like it if we could just stay together and have good times without too much political shito


but alas, this is the Trump era and everything is political now


even moreso when you're transgender and the opposing 'opinion' is "trans people should be dead". at this point, staying neutral is just not an option because it's de facto as bad as openly encouraging hate.

so, I have to take a side.

side I think most of the current community will agree with, anyway.

"just get off your lazy ass and work on getting a job".

"I'm unemployed."
-Just get a job.

"I'm homeless."
-Move into a house.

"I'm depressed."
-Don't be.


If only it was that easy.

even worse is that when you have to resort to stealing food or squatting a place (or even begging for money) to survive somewhat decently, those same assholes call you 'dishonest' and 'lazy' and 'parasite' and 'thug' and whatnot.

because they manage and therefore they think everybody should manage too and those who don't are just 'not trying enough'.

which eventually feeds into one of the tenets of neoliberal doctrine: "equality of chances"

basically, brainwashing people into believing they can all become millionaires if they spend all their life working themselves to death

which is actually not possible under capitalism

Of all of the communities that I have been a part of that have a lot of trans people and all, I haven't seen a lick of political nonsense budge into any sort of discussion about it; so I'm not seeing how politics can't be just left out. To be honest, I think that was one of the major reasons why the board basically went down in activity.

oh noes, there were a couple political threads, that totally killed the board


the 'politic' is mostly just that anything altright/fash will be banned on sight, but that's not even new.


admittedly, I obsessed over it back in 2016 when I discovered anticapitalism; getting involved locally helped me get over that and the obsession has mostly died down. see, I haven't even posted about the yellow vests.

not seeing why you had to make a sarcastic reply? Of all of the people that have left, at least 90% of them have said that they left when it started to turn into all-political posts. It was even noted in TheKoopaKingdom's post as well.

>all-political posts


I'm calling bullshit on this unless I'm given examples. it's not like we turned 100% political and banned anything else.

it's like you're seeing something you don't like and the bias against it is such that you perceive it as taking all the space. because, again, it was mostly contained in a few threads that you could choose to ignore.


this is also combined with the general decline in romhaxing activity, and well, I just can't help it. it's also one of the reasons why I don't feel too legitimate keeping up a romhaxing board: I have little interest into actual romhaxing. sometimes I can reverse-engineer things because I like the challenge, but that's about it, I can't be assed to make a level or even complete a game editor (see how Coinkiller went).


and I have tried to encourage more general discussion that isn't political, but, you see how that goes.

Despite what you may believe, I can personally affirm that a lot of people I've talked to have left Kuribo64 due to it focusing away from romhacking, and more on IRL/Politics.

yellow vests? French protest movement that's been going for almost 4 months now. it's against precarity, police violence, state repression, these things.

this sounds more like those people were in for romhaxing, and since that seems to want to happen over Discord, well, so be it.

(but don't be surprised when Hipstartup Discord Co fucks you over)

the point of the IRL discussion thing was to get the community to know eachother, so this would feel like a close-knit community rather than a simple medium for exchanging information.

Already has, but this isn't really a Discord vs. board argument.

That sounds fine and all, but it's gotten to the point where the majority of "IRL discussion" has turned into politics, and it's overtaken all other activity on the board, of the few it had.

It's hard not to notice the cause for K64's general decline in activity here.

honestly, I don't see it. political discussion is in a few threads that can just be ignored. to me, it's a non-issue unless you happen to be strongly against the general political orientation here.

again, it's not like the board has had any topics set in stone. you want to discuss about X? you can post about it in the Town Square, or open a thread about it.

so it's not like there's someone to blame for steering the board over one topic or another. if you want to post about ponies or waffles or whatever, you can just start doing so at any time.

Well, I get it's hard to see it when you're one of the few people who partakes in political discussion here, but despite the choices users have when it comes to discussion topics, all the political talk simply creates an off-putting environment for a lot of people who aren't into politics of any sort.

It's all made worse by the fact that this board does still to this day advertise itself as a romhacking board.
