Re: Moderator Action

Some have defended the content of the deleted posts, when they haven't even seen those posts. Remember kids, make sure to always read a deleted post before you attempt to defend it. No decision had been reached on the length of the ban at that time. That makes it a ban of indefinite length. Before ...

Re: Demoscene programs

(actually if I understand correctly it's something called "vapourwave", a new trendy word for 21 centrury guys mimicking 80s style ;) ) Yeah, it's a number of closely related audio/visual styles. My impression of it is that, rather than simply mimicking, it's more about remembering and recreating t...

Re: Demoscene programs

Can you see the problem yet? Things that make a demo for me: - it was created as a part of demoscene movement ;) - it's more or less calculated real time I agree, the second point is problematic. Many demos have precalculated parts and there are always fierce discussions when there is too much prec...

Re: Moderator Action

Much more than this controversial discussion, I am bothered by double standards and some attempts to put equality between wos and SC moderation. One wos chitchater is banned and the whole revolution is rising, but I didnt notice those voices of the righteous, when recently another long-time wos mem...

Re: Demoscene programs

Ralf From my perspective, you're saying something to the effect of, 'People might want to try putting on their pants from the head (and not the usual way) for the following reasons: ...' Art discussions is an initially doomed topic on the whole that I think is probably best avoided altogether. A go...

Re: Demoscene programs

Overall I find it hard to take seriously as a standalone genre. It's an awkward artifical construct that can be best summed up as 'music videos of questionable artistic value produced with a$$-backwards methodology'. Its only potential unquestionable redeeming quality, that of showing the full capab...

Re: Moderator Action

PeterJ For better or worse, certain arrangements of things correspond to certain states of affair. Although in a sense you are right I guess, the final nail in that particular coffin was amazingly the 'userbase not trusting itself' factor, something I haven't quite seen before on the internet. You ...

Personally, I hope no one piles in to confirm anything about what C.Born might have said or done. Just trust the SC moderators.
