#1406369 Magfest XVII - Super Magfest:OutNumbered!

Posted by raubhimself on Yesterday, 05:06 PM

So I filled this out like a week ago!? I haven't received any follow up yet though. So I'm wondering if I'm about to get disqualified or maybe they're still working on everything. I sent another email to the music department yesterday, and haven't heard anything back that way either.

I think they do it all in one go closer to the event. Last year I was on the verge of just buying a pass before they got back.

#1406283 So yesterday was the SECOND time I had diarrhea at Kohl's

I had a stomach bug all of last week. I had diarrhea at the grocery store, at a bar, and almost in a car.

On a similar note, since a few people have reached out to me about why I don't just delete that thread, here's some thoughts about that. Firstly, it's a no-win situation for ken oh and me. No matter what we do, someone will be unhappy about it. Tough shit for us, I suppose, but it's the truth. I also have no doubt that people are talking about this on other mediums, i.e. Facebook, discord, etc. The VGM scene is big, but it's also very insular and cross contaminated, and we're all a petty bunch. That said, here was my thinking for this particular instance:


- Lock the thread as soon as I saw it this morning?
Let's face it, you could see this coming a mile away. But Nario is a long time pal, and it would feel really shitty to shut him down like that.


- Lock the thread as soon as it took "the turn"?
We really only have one side, and it would be bad to just shut out the other party from the conversation. I'd prefer the drama not be here at all, but since it's here already, need to be fair about it.


- Delete the thread?

The nuclear option. It's easy to do, just press the button. But things have already been said. And then based on what I mentioned above, anyone who already read it knows about it and is talking about it with other people. Anyone who didn't happen to read it is wondering what happened. And then things get even more muddled than they already are because it becomes whisper down the lane. If any of the parties directly involved requested it, I'd happily do so though.


Any of these actions can be misconstrued as defending someone, hiding things, or any number of malicious things. It's low on the list of things to consider but I would hate to learn that people think of theshizz/me/ken oh is where abusers are protected/victims are ignored/etc.


Nothing posted here is between friends, nothing is private. PLEASE keep that in mind when sharing any details about yourself. It is possible to make the entire forum login-only, meaning you can't read anything unless you are logged in. There's pros and cons to that, but something we can all consider together.

So....how many people are regularly monitoring theshizz, without posting?  Is that a "thing" that people do?

It's a public forum. Anything you say here you have to assume someone else will see. It's a niche community but it's still public and we all know people in the "scene" that don't post here but are aware. I know we're all chummy but using real names, etc, is generally a bad idea.


I've been kind of meaning to talk about this for a while, privacy in general, but now's a good a time as any to bring it up I guess.

#1406262 You framed the wrong guy

Wishing you both the best and to get the proper help needed in this situation, but this is some highschool-level shit you need to handle yourselves.

#1406257 You framed the wrong guy

Posted by raubhimself on 17 September 2019 - 12:30 PM


I don't know you personally or online, but for all this talk of privacy you just outed yourself and I know exactly who you are. Not saying that to be creepy or anything, but like, I just went from having no idea who any of this was about to knowing exactly who is involved because you posted your name.






Well now you really just blew it wide open so the above doesn't really need to be said. But you can't claim a desire for privacy and then publicly out yourself on a public forum anyone to see.


I will fully admit to only knowing one side of this but I gotta call bullshit when someone is claiming to want to be drama-free and wanting privacy and then inserting themselves directly in the shit heap.


Getting very close to just closing this thread, because none of this really has anything to do with anyone here, and we're not going to get any closer to the truth this way.

#1405878 What games are you playing now?

Posted by raubhimself on 11 September 2019 - 04:04 PM

I'm super curious why you think that, Raub! Not ribbing FFXV, haven't gotten too deep into it yet..but i do wanna know if the story picks up or if this is more like MGSV, where the game is mostly about being in an open world and the story is just peppered in. I do like the road trip aspect of everything...i don't really get why it's a road trip though. I'm a prince, aren't i supposed to have like a ton of money and unlimited help with shit? 

There's maybe a little trolling in that post, but I did really enjoy the game. Up until the day it came out I thought it looked bad, but I bought it on a whim and ended up loving it. I guess the story isn't amazing but does any FF game have an actual good and/or not totally confusing story? It's a huge departure from the series in terms of game play but also hits all the right notes for things I love about the series.
