Good evening pony family, and thank you all for your time and attention. As you may or may not know, the staff has a rules rework proposal coming this weekend, as well as some other useful tools that should help our staff actions operate more transparently and consistently.

We've attached this poll:



...for you all to fill out, which will help us to understand what we've been doing right, what we've been doing wrong, and how we can improve. Please take the time to fill it out, and let us know what you think! Your input is very, very important to us.

The poll will record IP's and ask for your username. If neither one matches any known user, the vote shall not be counted in the final tally.

Thank you for your understanding!

I put in my two cents.



Would prefer more nuanced answers than "agree/disagree" but, I put my mark in, I guess.

We will be removing this sticky after Midnight EST tonight, in order to keep the number of stickies on the frontpage low

The poll will still be open though, and the link can still be found on the new sticky.

Thank you everypony!

I think my brain is damaged or something.

Yesterday I smacked the driver's side bumper into a column next to our parking spot in the new apartment (so now we got to get the car fixed) after misjudging how close I was to it. And then earlier today I was out on a walk and decided to rent a Lime Scooter thing on the way back home and ended up crashing into a curb cause I misjudged how close my front wheel was and ended up smacking my head into the street, I rode all the way back to the apartment with a blood soaked pebble embedded in my forehead.

I'm lying here on yhe couch, half asleep and wondering if I have some sort of nervous system damage.

i think i once had something like that happen to me, and it was a depth perception issue due to an inner ear infection :c

also, hey! It's the NYC subway!


Was it the same side both times?

Honestly it sounds like an issue with depth perception, which can be caused by a number of things. You can always call your physician if you're worried.


File: 1536604561783.png (203.19 KB, 600x450, 4:3, derpy shy 3.png) ImgOps Google

that is definitely not the NYC subway. the weird stuff that happens on the NYC subway tends to be sad, not quirky.

You may have some history with it, but Manley seems to obsess over it 24 hours a day. All with the sole intent to breed conflict.

Just look at his attitude here as an example, as well as his single and only post in your other thread. >>819499
And I'll specify that post just comes completely out of nowhere for no real reason. Manley is a conflict baiter. Nothing more.


I just want it to stop.


Are you still shit talking me and making up lies after i left this thread? Bitch move.(You were asked to report these posts, and not to continue the conflict. Please accept this 6 hr ban, as a serious reminder of this. )

Thread about economic matters to prevent me thread-jacking another thread, as is my bad habit.

Topic for discussion if nothing else: the economist Thomas Piketty claims that were the rate of return on capital (r) exceeds growth in GDP (g), the economy will tend away from meritocracy toward a structure of class based on family standing, and it is rare through history that (g > r) for significant periods.  Many disagree, perhaps you do as well.

>It's drowning in caveats.
This strikes me as a problem in general for economics, and I suppose psychology as well.  There's probably more recorded data about financial transactions than anything else, and you can do all sorts of descriptive statistics and graphs -- at least for the accessible data, but it's hard to make predictions about human behavior without simplifying boxes.  I'm not an economist myself, so don't want to dismiss the field, but I do think it's to be taken with skepticism.

>medical care advanced
That's probably the hardest.  Before...1900 or something...no amount of money could buy medical care that didn't usually make you worse.  They could set bones, and pull teeth, and dope you up on laudanum, but for most conditions you'd have been better off staying home.


It's true in general for economics, but then what Piketty appears to be doing to me is making a huge amount of assumptions so that he finally ends up with a guess based upon a guess rooted in other guesses and so on. It's turtles all the way down.

When I see 'g' < 'r', it's sort of like seeing somebody say 'cats as pets' < 'dogs as pets' or something else way rooted in layered opinion rather than science.


>When I see 'g' < 'r', it's sort of like seeing somebody say 'cats as pets' < 'dogs as pets' or something else way rooted in layered opinion rather than science.

You see r and g as too closely related to have independent meaning?

My appreciation for Moony, he's a lawyer who deals with the shitty American public yet spends a lot of his time and money on ingrates on this site who just bitch all day. (Wonder how many NEETS are here...) Hell even the Mod volunteers, dawned on me just how much of your own time you people spend to keep this place clean so it doesn't go the way of what's left of the fandom in general and keep pedos out.  

Have to admit, if I spent a fraction of the time Moony did on a site I'd be a million times meaner and a hell of a lot more ban happy, then again i'd be catering to a different demographic.

Up to this point i've been more focused on identifying and learning to break out of negative feedback cycles.

By dangerous positive feedback loops in the systems of economy, are you referring to perceived value?  Such as a stock price.  Or if you mean something else, please explain...


File: 1536562373178.png (129.74 KB, 1080x1080, 1:1, image.php.png) ImgOps Google

I think we're confusing terms a bit.  In science, a positive feedback is one of reinforcing deviation, negative is one of counteracting deviation.  (Rather than negative as far as sad; positive as far as happy).  I'm thinking of something like: you're poor so you can't get a good job, you can't get a good job, so you're poor kinda stuff.


I always feel they influence each other.
And that's why for me welfare is a necessity.

The longer you are unemployed, the bigger the gap in your resume becomes and the less likely you will be hired.
If you have no funds, you will be forced on the street and good luck finding someone who wants to hire some bum.

A third episode to Half-Life 2 would be dumb, I agree with you on that. But it's clearly VALVe have no real interest in making "Half-Life 3" that would be entirely different from the prequal.

If VALVe doesn't want to develop a new source engine and modern-age grapjhics rendering software for a "Half-Life 3" game then might as well be "Half-Life 2: Episode 3" which just an extention of Half-Life 2 which even today holds up well with it's graphics.

If they don't want to put the effort into making a whole game to tell the story then the bare minimum is to make it an episode to what they already have.

In fact, it pisses me off that such games like "Hunt Down The Freeman" gets marketing approoval from VALVe themselves while other, more quality mod games such as "Half Life 2: Episode 3: Conclusion" doesn't get noticed.

Yeah, I wish there were more Announcer packs, especially adaptions for TF2.

But TF2 is older than my grandmum
if she was born in the last decade or so.


Despite it's age, it's still played to this day.
Just announcement packs are not common to it.

Social politics, not government politics.



Didn't we JUST have a conversation about how no one else is as rigidly fixated on exact terminology as you? I've spoken to Moony about what he considers to be "politics" and it does not exclusively pertain to things relating to government.

None, unfortunately.  If I ate a whole one in one sitting, I'd get diabetes.  And it is rather delicate and I doubt it would survive being transported in my travels.

with all the art popping up on my dash, I'm guessing these two finally got over themselves. But I haven't watched the show since like... a while... so just tell me one thing before I go binge the entire thing.

Were they sisters?

I have been wondering this since they were introduced and this is the only spoiler I want answered before I watch.

I remember when Berry Punch was the Overly Protective Parents Pony.


>Somehow, and I'm not sure how, that evolved in the same way to her apparently having a drinking problem.
I think another part of this is her grapes cutie mark. Wine in particular is a common symbol of alcoholism.


I don't member that.  Was it before or after she was a lush?
