The top moderator for the sub in question revoked the ban and made a comment on this thread condemning crappy mod behavior. He is truly the maddest lad.
I want to say, please don't send the mods any threats. Having that happen wasn't my intention and despite my beef, no one deserves that.
Thank you all for the support.
This may seem petty, because it doesn't "really matter", but I've had a really bad week and this just kind of broke me. I know its Monday.
There's actual real shit in my world that's not going well, but somehow what happened today is the straw that broke the camels back.
For instance: A client that my business did over $50k worth of work for falsely claimed that our completely valid charge of their credit card was "fraud". The chargeback put my account $30k in the negative during a time where our cashflow has been an absolute nightmare. The client is now attempting to "renegotiate" the contract for less than a 4th of what is owed. I don't yet k... keep reading on reddit ➡

I want to start off by saying that this is my third wipe. I had Kappa last wipe and have over 2.5k hours on my EOD account. I have never even considered using and cheats, hacks, exploits or RMT.
This past Sunday I finally found the shroud mask I have been hunting for to finish the collector quest. I was so excited to find it on a factory scav in one of my last runs of the night. I collect my Kappa and log off. The next morning I attempt to log in only to be notified my account has been permanently banned. I knew there must have been a mistake so I quickly search my email account for details...Nothing from BSG or Battle... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'll be blunt. The mods of this community have not stood behind our Jewish brothers and sisters during this time. In fact, it seems as if they want their struggle to be lost to time as the weekend draws near.
The very least they can do is provide an explanation of what happened and say that the actions taken on Wednesday were in no way a method of silencing the Jewish community.
Yet they haven't even done that. All they did was post a megathread claiming they believe this was an important issue and therefore THAT SPECIFIC post could stay up thanks to their benevolence.
Sure, you see someone with a mod flair and ask them if they are against anti-semitism and they'll unequivocally say all mods are against racism and hatred.
It's hard to believe that though when they were the ones that failed the Jewish community to begin with. And to be honest it feels like they failed the Black community also.
The problem isn't just standing against hatred. It's that they have to STAND UP for the... keep reading on reddit ➡
TL;DR: with colleagues we conducted the first empirical study on how to reduce aversion to shocking (yet informative) content and have developed a google chrome extension named Arkangel (wink wink Black Mirror) that applies the concept to all images we browse on the web. AMA!
Full intro Hi you all! Lonni here. With my colleagues, we conducted the first empirical study on the use of colour manipulation and stylization to make surgical images and videos easier to watch. While aversion to such stimuli is natural, it limits the ability of many people to satisfy their curiosity, educate themselves and make rational decisions. We have selected a diverse set of image processing techniques and tested them on surgeons and people who are not exposed to such stimuli on a daily basis (non-specialists/lay people). Through this study, we have found a technique that is particularly effective in reducing the shocking aspect of such images while prese... keep reading on reddit ➡
Tweet >Jimmy Butler says he doesn't know exactly why he was asked to change his jersey before tipoff and adds "I don't care" about the league's explanation. Butler said he relented "for my teammates" and described it as "to be determined" if he tries to play in a blank jersey again
Imo it sucks that you can't choose every class for every race and justifying that by lore that doesn't make sense, isn't right.
For example orcs can't be paladins, is there something that physically prevents orcs from fully understanding light and becoming paladin?
Draenei can't be warlocks, so eredar can wield fel as far as I know, so why don't we have option to play draenei warlock? I think they'd have to have different skin colors, but that would still be cool tho.
Stormwind Humans could learn to understand druidism since they're allied with guys who practiced it for thousands of years. I know that there is physical difference between kul'tiran and normal human, but is there physical difference between Gilnean and normal human?
Tauren and draenei rogue, because of represented size in game it would make sense for them to not be rogues, however those are average tauren and draenei, are there possibly known smaller sized tauren and draenei that could be rogues? Orcs and pandare... keep reading on reddit ➡
The first Borderlands introduced Pandora as a barren desert wasteland planet. In Borderlands 2 we suddenly have snowy glaciers, thundra, lush green fields and more. In Borderlands 3 Pandora is back to being a wasteland...
Is there an in-universe explanation to this? I recall reading/hearing something about a flash ice age, but I'm not sure if that's true anymore...
there already exist info about artifacts, how to craft it and how to reroll. but we just need clear explanation of all stats like it exists for buffs/debuffs. perfect example is +dmg based on your spd/hp/def/atk, does it adds per hit or per skill
I am making this post as a follow up to the original BM Lin blacklist thread. Some of you were upset with the decision and voiced that towards me. Fair enough. However, I feel that many of you do not understand the history leading up to this decision.
There are four main reasons why BM Lin has been blacklisted.

On August 26th 2006, a bug was discovered by Blizzard that made entering the C’thun’s room significantly harder than intended, as explained in this blue post from Tigole (Jeff Kaplan):
>We’re in the process of investigating C’Thun’s behavior in Patch 1.12. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to fully fix the encounter without a new client build. We’re hoping to get a Patch 1.12.1 together in the next few weeks that will fix the problem.
>In the meantime, we’re working on a Hotfix that will temporarily give players more time to enter his room without suffering extreme consequences. We hope to have this hotfix up soon.
(I can’t include links in my post but if you just google the quote you will find the blue post, it is archived on mmo-champion).
As explained in the same blue post, they instantly applied a fix that reduced the “range” of the beam when players e... keep reading on reddit ➡

As many of you know, we're presented with options of asking various characters in the Mojave about the state of the war between the Legion and NCR, the state of politics in the NCR proper, and about what life is like back in California. One of the early prominent characters is Ranger Ghost, who let's us know about the trouble with Brahmin barons and Big Circle.
However, with the release of Lonesome Road, we were essentially presented with the fact that the Courier had been in cities all around the West and had been working as a Courier in the area for a considerable amount of time, surely enough that they would be familiar with both the internal politics of the NCR, and with the Legion-NCR war. There's also a dialogue option with Bruce Isaac that confirms that they've been in New Reno.We even learn that the Courier had a significant part in the fate of the Divide. But, based on dialogue we can have earlier in the game, it can be assumed that the Courier is rather ignorant of the situ... keep reading on reddit ➡
So you may have heard that there was a Rule 5 update on r/Animemes where you could no longer say the word "trap" in their attempt to stop transphobia on the sub. This was met with a lot of back lash because the mods did this with no questions asked instead of asking how the community felt about it and working together as a whole to find a new term that isn't offensive to transgender folks and maybe even spreading valuable information to make the internet as a whole a little better.
What really got everyone upset is when multiple transgender subreddits encouraged this ban while also bullying them with insults the anime community is all too familiar within the comfort of their own communities. Another thing to note is that multiple mods were seen making fun of the people upset by the ban and saying it'll die down bc "they're a bunch of incels and bigots".
In anyone's opinion who knows the responsibility of a moderator, especially of a community that big, attacking the community yo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Oh, hello everyone. I hope you're well etc.
Straight to business. We get a lot of posts where you fine lot have seen something out and about, and you've snapped a quick photo of the thing and uploaded it to /r/CasualUK to give us all a bit of a chuckle. We appreciate it, we really do! However... Sometimes, it's a bit... Shit. Maybe you've stumbled across a street called 'Arse Bandit Close' or you've made a disgusting looking dinner and you've taken a quick shot to show the group. Listen, we don't want to be rude or condescending, but these posts do not inspire quality content. It's a quick wry smile, and upvote and onward we go. This community was built upon community engagement and that's something we want to continue, and we need you guys to help us out with that. All we ask is that you put a little more effort into your posts so that we do not have the gall to even think about removing it.
Here are some examples:
If anyone has played the story and paid close attention to the dialogue, you should know that no character in For honor actually speaks english as a common tongue, but hearing dialogue in English is how the writers convey the characters understand one another within a scene.
Knights in chapter 1 are all heard speaking in English, but you get into chapter three as the samurai, and none of the samurai and knights communicate. Why? Because the knights are speaking Latin, we just hear english when those Latin speakers were talking between each other.
Same goes for samurai and vikings, both of which speak english with each other in respective chapters. The Runa joke that she failed to interrogate her enemies because "I don't speak Japanese" let's us know that the samurai we understand via hearing english are actually speaking Japanese but we hear English used for the story-flow and understanding.
Last of all we get to the final scene with each of the faction leaders seamlessly speakin... keep reading on reddit ➡
First of all. Sorry for my poor english. Second - for my poor montage skills (they really bad). I used free characters from Mixamo.
I’m big fan of coop gaming in ARPG. But in PoE I’m always play solo cause most of all groups are: hard pushers party (like Havoc616), deep delve divers and aurabot+one char team. Will be great if in PoE we can play with mercenary like in Diablo 2.
I know that GGG read Reddit and always want to surprise us with new leagues. Hope that you will like this wave of my fantasy.
Three mercenary trapped in Wraeclast and Oriath. Exile need to find them in Upper Prison, Slave Pens and Labyrinth. After freedom they will wait us in the Einhar camp.

Ok the title is a bit obscure. Sorry for that.
I just read a thread about "why the emperor killed of the thunder warriors" and suddenly it hit me. Everyone in that thread tried to argue in some way why it was sane/justified to do it: They were unstable/the emperor needed a better army/he couldnt unify humanity without killing them ...
Now I get that this is the explanation from the pov of characters in the wh40k universe, but almost everyone in this universe is a crazy fascist and all these explanations are stemming from a facist naturalisation/justification of the emperors goals.
Lets be honest here, the emperor is one of the worst beings imaginable, as evidenced f.e. by constructing the thunder warriors, using them for a genocidal rampage conquest of earth and then just murdering them. IRL no one would try to justify his acts. IRL everyone would treat any information regarding the emperor as "probably propaganda" he is a craty fascist after all.

First of all, I can just say that as a soloq player I just feel like fodder for 3-4 stacks a lot of the time.
I got to immortal in soloq only and the best possible advice I can give to every single soloq player who's lower than imm2 and wants to rank up faster is:
DODGE THE GAME WHEN YOU'RE THE HIGHEST RANK.
There's literally nothing to gain by playing those games. Most of the time when you're the highest rank (unless you're imm2/3) means that you're just playing with a stack. I'm writing this while waiting for the queue ban to expire. I literally got insant queue just now and was matched with plat3, 2xd1 and d2. There's nothing to gain for me in that game.
No offense to anyone, but I just don't want to play with platinums, unless they're my friends. I soloq-d my way up to immortal. I don't want any trophies, achievements, badges, skins... keep reading on reddit ➡
