MAJOR EDIT: Apparently this thread now focuses on how fascist COG's faggy practices are in their staff's quest for fat loot, domination of the IF communities and their determination to squash their own audience's dissent and accurate criticisms of their hypocrisy, lying, brigading, bad faith and corruption of any kind!
Holy shit, this is hilarious. You seriously all need to read this, if you haven't already.
These faggots at "Gathering Dust Studios" are bitching about CoGite authors not being "woke" enough!
They even go so far as to list them and say exactly about how they're "bigoted."
I haven't even gone through all of it myself yet, but it's just lol. They're bitching about everything from autistic retards being "mocked" to MtM romances being "fetishized" by female writers, to the usual tranny outrage.
EDIT: Bah, they were some back peddling faggots and deleted the original post. Here's just a regular boring link to the place and you can sift through their comments to see them whine about CoG banning them.
Less fun link
EDIT EDIT: Thankfully Mizal saved the screen shots like a true CYStian patriot. (They're further down the thread)
SPECIAL MAJOR EDIT!
If there are any CoGites, Tumblrinas or other IFaggots lurking about in our glorious dark lands, feel free to elaborate on any of these situations, I know you won't really be able to talk about it on the actual CoG forums or any other IF forum (or even your own Tumblr!) since CoG is quickly trying to squash dissent of any kind, but we're all for people expressing themselves here.
Just remember though, coming in with the typical shitposting attitude won't get you far and will just serve to amuse us at best.
They seem a tad upset.
"PLEASE do not use that word unless you’re referencing ACTUAL ANIMALS"
Well the joke just sets itself up for that statement.
"faye heath" lmao. You know the more like a fantasy character an alphabet person sounds, the more revolting and oozing their fake pussy is. Speaking of, did you know they have to gruesomely dilate it with a fucking knife every day?
This imagery is scarring.
Here's some choice rants about CoG. There's probably more, but there's a lot of other boring bullshit to sift through. These sort of get the main points across in the sissy slap fight though.
LOL And the swift tyrannical iron fist of CoG smashes the trannys!
Apparently these two are siblings.
Something went SERIOUSLY wrong in that household.
The abortions, probably.
So many lols! ^_^
No, the link was more or less just to the place. You sort of have to sift around for various cringy shit if you feel so inclined. I posted some of the better ones already in the thread though.
And yes, you are retarded, but so far you're not a faggot, so you got that going for you.
We can compromise. JKR is your favourite author, but only the anti semitic parts
Damn, knew I should have taken proper screen shots.
Apparently with their bannings, they went ahead and scrubbed their original bitching post about all the various CoG authors. Looks like their complaining about being banned because a lot of their shit was in the adult section of CoG which can't be viewed without a proper account. Lol.
In any case, they're still salty about CoG, but they don't even have the courage of their convictions to keep their fucking post up on their own damn blog. Talk about being some back peddling faggots.
Maybe the plan is to complain to everyone who'll listen, "Look! CoG just banned us for no fucking reason! This just proves how much they hate trans people!" ^_^
I mean a lot of their complaints about CoG as a company are valid. Since Jason is definitely a hypocritical faggot who will look the other way on his "wokeness" when something is earning him money (Like the Samurai story).
Plus I have always believed that their deal with HG authors is basically like second class citizenhood and not all that great. (The fact they even separate them into "HG" vs "CoG" reeks of it)
However the tumblrinas were a bunch of hypocritical faggots as well. If they REALLY felt strongly about the place being a hotbed of toxic "bigotry", why the fuck were they still trying to publish a game through there and hanging around? It's like if you don't have the courage of your convictions, why the fuck should anyone take your whining on tumblr seriously?
It's like how Tevin and his fucktard crew were "Trying to start a rebellion at CoG because it's corrupt!" but "We have to keep quiet because we're trying to publish games through it!"
I know they had some valid points, that's why they got banned. :p
Main thing I don't get the is the whole, "OMFG, there are gay love stories being written by WOMEN! RED FLAGS! RED FLAGS!!!" ... Like... Isn't that super sexist?
Oh that's like a variation of "This isn't YOUR story to tell." thing.
Basically if you aren't of a particular group and you write about them, you're at worst being a big bigot that's making fun of that group OR at best you're fetishizing them for sexual gratification. (That's what they were accusing the women writing about gay dudes getting it on about)
It's the sort of bullshit Laguz and few of the other more militant CoG members in the past used to go on about. It was always retarded.
Yeah, I do love the fucked up attitude of,
"Why the hell doesn't your story have any Black/Gay/Trans people in it? You must be a racist, homophobic, transphobe!"
"Hmm... I never thought about that. You know what, I'm going to write a story with a Black/Gay/Trans protagonist!"
"What the hell gives you the right to write a Black/Gay/Trans character? Now you're exploiting and misrepresenting minorities for your own benefit, you entitled White/Straight/Cis person!"
"Sorry, I didn't mean to offend... I guess I'll leave the Black/Gay/Trans character out of the story."
"HOW FUCKING DARE YOU!"
This reasoning is also very counterproductive to writers, because the sign of a good writer is that they're able to write from a totally different perspective. Oh well, I guess I should only write about high school cis white males now.
You hear that? CoG will be filled with incels and TERFS in five years.
Fortunately here at CYS we'll still have our loyal core sociopath and incest enthusiast audience.
You're a legend.
Thank you!!! ^_^
Glad that even the icy storms in Texas couldn't stop the dedication to save the lols.
The 16 year old age of consent is pretty gross, but then I remember that I don't live in Japan and I'm happy. ^_^
After watching the "Cuties" movie, I'm surprised they're not trying to move it to 11. :p
Yea they're retroactively trying to make that movie socially acceptable.
Obviously we've been more progressive than CoG all along.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
Gotta love the delusions of the mentally ill. Why the hell would we be mad about them being right about CoG or picking apart any of their arguements about CoG? We're too busy laughing at the shit show all around.
Seriously, these trannys aren't saying anything new about about CoG, hell we called out Jason on being a hypocritical faggot long before it was cool.
Whatever they say about us hardly matters, considering we've heard it all before and their opinions much like their stations in life are meaningless. Basically they're just being retards at this point, especially since they're the ones that got themselves trolled to come look over here in the first place. Lol.
Nope, you're still alive.
Wait a second, an argument was made? When? They made like 3 posts and then we banned them because it was funny. At best they could claim there was some kind of satire in calling us CoG, but that's like saying communism and fascism are the same. Sure, they wind up with a bunch of dead people, but their methods are so diverse! The cowardly passive aggression they choose to call "criticism" fails in pretty much all aspects because it makes the assumption that we care enough about what they're implying to read into their sarcasm. Or that we care about being called bigots in the first place, but I mean, we don't really? Everybody here knows where they stand. I know where I stand, and not even my slaves think I'm all that bigoted.
At any rate, clearly they do not observe the proper customs and have misread our insults entirely. Faggot in the cystian language is the proper term for a thin-skinned retard, regardless of whether or not they touch men's buttholes. It has certain impolite homophones with the English version of the term, but that just makes it better for use against faggots, because they'll whine about it, which is a faggot's defining characteristic. Likewise, there is also a clear delineation between gay meaning a preference for the same sex, and gay meaning stupid in a similar manner as faggot. For example use in a sentence, "The notion that this bigbrain tumblr blogger has of trolling us has got to be the gayest shit I've ever read."
It may be a rude thing to say, but insults aren't supposed to be pleasant. And nothing gets the point across better without wasting precious syllables on some faggot who isn't worth the thought put into finding a replacement. In Glorious Cystia, anybody can be a faggot, it's just unfortunate that the recent one happens to be both kinds at once.
I don't know whether or not you're using threaded view, but the serendipitous circumstances of your arrival are so funny that I almost forgot to nag you about it.
I bet they're the kind of person who'd shove frogs up their ass and then never stop talking about it.
I laughed way too hard at this, where is the frog-up-the-ass shoving dude anyway? I didn't see him around in a while.
Oh, sorry about that. Here you go.
Hilarious to see I got a direct mention this time. "Incel?" Did they crib their "snappy comeback" notes from Suicidal Sammy? Sounds like one of his lame insults. Hell it's probably him.
Briar and G***r only got indirect mentions, but hey you know as they say, it's just an honor to be mentioned!
I think the most amusing thing about all this (Besides their grade school attempts at insults), is they (And their "fanbase") are laboring under the delusions that we're somehow "Big Mad" or "obsessed" with them when we never even heard of any of them until someone brought this to our attention and we decided it was a funny enough diversion to post on the forums.
I mean infighting within the CoG crowd is always a source of entertainment.
Seriously, they should be thanking us for all this anti-CoG exposure since it isn't like their little tumblrina blog is going to get as much attention.
Yeah woke types love to pretend that they've made people mad, like they're Fred Hampton and we're the chicago police or something.
Really though, we're just reacting with the appropriate disgust, horror, and amusement that any rational person would have when confronted with a group of angry teenagers who want better representation for men who cut their own dicks off
Yeah, if you just stick to the actual story discussion threads, CoG can actually be pretty awesome. ^_^
I do find it funny how G***r seems to get a tonne of shit from a bunch of former CoGers despite the fact that he's consistently nice to everybody and never says/does a mean thing to anyone. Was the same with the Tevin crew. I guess some people were bitter at him because occasionally, he would go, "I'm just going to go ahead and delete this post here before someone else sees it and you get perma banned."
Damn, really got me there. The combined 10 minutes of laughter I've spent dwelling in this conversation must be the sign of some kind of obsession- Guess I'll have to stop talking about them right away to prove that I don't want to fellate their gross schrodinger- Wait, now this sounds like some butthurt ploy to get me to stop talking about them! I can't let them win.
The funniest thing is that you can easily tell just how triggered they are, despite their best attempts to hide it: "GUYS, GUYS, WE TOTALLY OWNED THOSE CYSTIANS AMIRITE, I'M NOT CRYING (insert random emoji here). ENDMASTER INCEL LOL (insert random emoji here)". Perhaps they should own us in some way other than providing entertainment, but whatever.
Also, I thought that you did get banned from CoG in the end.
My mistake... But wow. They actually make a super good point then. I mean CYS takes the piss out of CoG all the time. Why the fuck haven't we gotten banned yet?
I'm genuinely interested. I mean, from what I understood, CoG are super strict on their own forums but don't generally ban people for things they say on other forums, so what's the deal? What did the gathering stardust people do that was so bad that it got them banned when CYS has been making fun of CoG for years and none of us seems to have gotten banned because of it. (Because despite their claims, I highly doubt that they got banned specifically because CoG hates trans people.)
... Maybe they said something on the CoG forums that got them into trouble, or maybe I'm missing something... Curiouser and curiouser. O.o
She's cool. We've adopted her. ^_^
She does have her occasional "woke" moments, but I think in general, she's just accepted the fact that we're all assholes and there's no point trying to change us. ^_^
Talking about obsessions, they actually have one with Mara because they won't shut up about her for some reason.
I can honestly say Mara's about the furthest thing from a "rape/pedo apologist." Hell, she'll get pissed about people making rape jokes and won't read certain stories with rape in them. Let alone any pedo stuff.
So they're basically just being fucktards about her.
I thought they were just using Twine
I just chalk it up to CYStians being Chads (And Staceys).
Did they bring any of it up in the CoG forums at all?
I... Really don't know. Especially since Mara isn't even involved in this conversation at all. Do they just... Pick random people and pointlessly go after them for no apparent reason?
... But she didn't fucking do anything! >.<
I know what you mean, I'm already bored and lost interest.
I'm going to go actually work on my latest story and maybe write some more reviews on the IFDB since I haven't forgotten about that more important battle front.
Tumblr has loads of great shit! There's shoplifting haul blogs, serial killer fan girls, trans age, trans race, all kinds of goodies. ^_^
(The shoplifters get REALLY pissy if you call them out on, you know, literally breaking the law, because it's an addiction and you shouldn't shame them for it.)
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if J.K.R has deemed this cannon. :p
You should call them out. Hostile misgendering is a serious crime and affects many people!
Can you not get female incels?
So 4chan is for the male incels and tumblr is for the female incels... Such a shame! If only the two could collide and then there wouldn't be any incels anymore. ^_^
Yey! I'm an incel! ^_^
Considering you only just joined today, their file on you is going to be pointlessly short. :p
This thread was a blast
You're all awesome
... Actually, not confirmed at all.
I mean, it could be true, in which case, that's pretty awesome. But if not, they're just giving a random HG author shit for no fucking reason. :p
( ?° ?? ?°)
OMG, proof that Jason Hill uses CYS CONFIRMED!!! ^_^
Avery, I'm so sorry for hte way I treated you, I was wrong and you were right, and CYS is better than COG.
I'm so embarassed that my Lenny face didn't work and now I can't edit it, but that's just more proof of a superior website.
Here let me try this instead:
Yes mizal it is I.
Now that things are cool between our sites, I wanted to ask a favor. Could I get you, Avery, and poisonmara to take turns fucking me with a strap on? Just a little late Valentines present for the wife.
It's beautiful. Always knew you were a cool guy. ^_^
From the response they've drummed up on the site, really seems like making shit up based on the barest information just because they don't like someone personally is sort of their MO.
Considering they were ones threatening to blackmail Mara and generally slandering CoG authors with no proof, I'd say they'd be the cyber bullies here despite their attempts at playing the victim.
First they hate CoG, now they hate us (Not really sure why considering we haven't actually done anything to them) they really seem to be all over the place on this. I thought they were supposed to be creating a new business to rival CoG, I would think that would be their best revenge on the place.
But then I don't dwell on the mental deficiencies of the lesser born.
CoG + CYS. BFFs 4eva!!! <3
I don't know who this is but I am not without reason, I am willing to unban them.
Full pardons for everyone who fuck me with a strap on and send pictures to my wife!
These people, they've all already removed their own equipment correct? I want them to have room to try out the lifelike rubber horse dick I just had special ordered.
Actually one's a them and one's an... Everything... Which to be honest, I find pretty refreshing. Wish more people could identify as multigendered. You can call them by any pronoun and they won't get offended. (Very useful on the internet where half the people will use a profile pic with a character of the opposite gender to them and then don't understand why everyone assumes that they're the same gender as their profile pic.)
No no that's fine. When it comes to anyone willing to fuck me in the ass with a strap on horse dildo, I make no distinctions in gender, sexuality, age, race, kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species, immigration status, marital status, criminal record, planet of origin, whether they prefer Fallout 3 over New Vegas, or whether they post on COG or CYS.
Wow, I just don't think there's ever been a more disliked centrist in my lifetime. Literally nobody in this situation likes this post. The CoGites don't like it because half of them think they're above us, the tumblrites don't like it because they're irreparably triggered by both of us, and the Cystians don't like it because we're not known to stand down from anything. This is like, the most hilariously untimely call for unity by a political moderate in the face of ancient generational blood feuds since that political post ArchBroFerdinand1863 made before they banned him.
Contrary to popular belief, I actually get along fine with most CoGites over there. Sometimes there are perfectly fine threads relating to writing (or video games) which is why I'll wander over from time to time. Now I imagine all the shit we say over here probably isn't really coinciding with the forced happiness over there, but that's fine. That's why people can travel to different places.
Honestly, Jason can be a hypocritical businessman and be woke when it serves his purpose, triggering the alphabet crew (and whoever else) and making money while doing it. Hardly makes him any worse than most companies nowadays. I don't buy CoG products or support its practices for various reasons, and I definitely have no intention of publishing through there so it's all the same to me on that end.
However, the fact he treated Avery/Briar like shit and just turned a deaf ear to everything involved in that incident, including a DIRECT response from Alex who posted saying that Briar had complete ownership over the story and it was A-Ok for COG to publish it, he gets no fucking slack from me.
He made up some bullshit excuse about the story "glorifying" child abuse and whatever else (None of which was true) that came out of both sides of his mouth as a reason he wasn't publishing it at that point when the real reason was well how dare Briar question him and people rally around her and cause strife in his "kingdom."
Plus there was another gladiator story at the time which pretty much copied Briars so "Hey, why bother with the troublemaker when I can just publish the cheap rip off?"
And trust me, I get that as a tyrant, you don't want dissension in your land, but he'd been less of a mealy mouthed douchebag, he wouldn't have had that problem in the first place.
When Jason apologizes publicly on HERE AND COG to Briar directly for that shitshow AND REALLY means it without his own "But you guys..." or any other double speak, THEN I might reconsider my stance on him.
As for the tumblrinas, well they got their own beef with him and for some reason they think trying to get us banned from the CoG forum is going to make some sort of difference. It won't because even if we do, it's not going to accomplish too much. We're not part of the "CoG community" (Despite what delusional Tumblinas believe) in the first place so it's not like any of us care in the scheme of things.
In any case, with how evil the tumblrinas have made us out to be (At least from the last screen shots, I haven't bothered going over there again since I got bored), banning wouldn't stop us anyway. We're apparently lurking under beds and dragging "the oppressed" to underground murder rooms to cannibalize them.
To be fair, I don't think that it was a single event that triggered me to go cuckoo for cocoa puffs. And it did happen twice, so I guess I'm just prone to it.
(Been completely better for almost a year now, so yey! ... I should really get back to writing now.) :p
I have no idea. :p
She used to want to make money off of it- But a certain world-famous cuckold (or, at least his wife is world-famous.) made that so much more trouble than it was worth.
Awh, Mara! Bless your heart! <3
I really don't think you need to worry about Jason. Considering the poster is pretty much just asking people to strap on dildo rape him, the chances of people mistaking him for the real Jason are relatively slim.
As for the Gathering Stardust people... They're basically calling you a pedophile for (as far as I can understand) having your fictional character date another fictional character who is one year underage, completely ignoring the fact that... You know... It's fictional.
Considering you haven't done anything to them and you only spoke up once trying to be nice and have everybody get along, I think it's pretty scummy of them to single you out for no apparent reason. Not really sure what their end goal is besides saying, "Everybody look at how bad CoG is for not banning these people who we want them to ban! Bad CoG! Very bad!"
All that said, I think that on the whole, CoG and CYS get along just fine. ^_^
sharp as a fuckin cue ball this one
I can imagine it right now:
Wesker: On behalf of the great Cyprus Lawson and Faye Heath of the mighty kingdom of Gathering Stardust, I bring you greetings. It is the hope of my great leaders that we can make peace in these trying times, and restore the honorable title of "woke" to the kingdom of CoGzta.
My great and noble rulers make the following demands:
1. A full pardon to both Cyprus Lawson and Faye Heath, and a welcome back to the site of CoG.
2. The banning from CoG of the following members:
Endmaster: For loling at us and calling us fags.
Mizal: For suggesting that there are only two genders.
Sentinel Penguin: ... Does he even have an account on CoG?
Avery Moore: For daring to point out that we were being massively sexist.
And Allen Gies: Because he is tinstar! ... Perhaps... Possibly... Maybe...
When the following demands are met, I'm sure we can look forward to a long and glorious friendship between our two communities.
Jason: ... ... ... Mary, where did I put my ban hammer?
... Actually, looking at the Gathering Stardust blog, the request actually seemed pretty reasonable. The author asked for their WIP thread to be deleted since, you know, they were banned and couldn't work on it any more... Really not sure why they didn't just delete it.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Though it's really not a good look to put, "Questioning Moderation Decisions" as a reason for suspension. :p
Been browsing the Gathering Stardust blog and I just need to ask... Why is Mara a pedo? I mean, I keep coming across posts about how Mara is a big, massive, kiddy fiddling pedo, but I very rarely see any reasoning behind the accusations and when I do, it doesn't make a lot of sense.
So far all I've gathered is:
1. The age of consent in her country is lower than in America.
2. Either she's playing a game or she's writing a game where there's an RO that's 17.
... Other than that, I just really am not sure why they keep going on tirades about how Mara is a massive pedo.
OMG, a one year age gap! THE MONSTER!!!! O.O
We are. And thank you for reminding me. I almost forgot to feed the small child I have locked in my basement. ^_^
Sounds like your brother's friends are very cultured people!
Welcome to CYS! ^_^
Been scrolling through the Gathering Stardust blog and it seems like things have calmed down. CoG actually did remove the WIPs that the two authors asked them to remove, so that's good.
Only other thing I noticed worth mentioning is one of the authors is working on a game called Dragon Pact, which has the unfortunate abbreviation of DP, so my immature little self is giggling away at the line, "Faye has been focussing on DP lately"
... I guess they all like DP? :p
Update for those that might be interested in lols. (And nope, I didn't even originally look for this, it was brought to my attention, since I figured it was done with)
Summary: Basically CoG's getting called out on it's long standing hypocrisy and more Tumblr faggots are flocking to Twine because apparently CoG is too fucking toxic for them.
There's honestly TOO much whining to actually screen shot it all, but here's the links if you want.
EDIT: Bah, once again faggots backpeddling and deleting their rants due to CoG mod bullying. So much for their big talk.
The most detailed one
The piggyback and some other shit
However here's two choice bits.
First up, hey look we got an indirect call out!
Okay this is just bullshit, we're not fucking anti-Semitic so this tranny is just making shit up on that front. I'm not even sure what the fuck the "h-slur" is because I sure don't remember using one.
And no, faggot and retard still aren't slurs, they're accurate descriptors of not just CoGites, but of most of the IF community at this point. Some of them being the former, others being the latter and a whole lot of them managing to be a spectacular combination of the two.
And why the fuck would you feel unsafe as a twin? Unless your twin sibling is planning on RAEPING you, you're pretty safe on that front.
And here's one from the other place.
Suspended for White Knighting and Questioning Moderation, that's hilarious. Lol.
Yey! That's me! ^_^
I do love how they keep bringing up the whole "A Hosted Games Author partook in the thread!" despite the fact that I didn't say anything offensive, bringing up "One of the CoG mods is a member of CYS" despite the fact that I don't think Gower's ever said a mean word to anyone in his life, and bringing up the author of Tin Star just because some guy made an account with tinstar as his username. :p
All that said, very much lol that "White Knighting" is actually a given reason for suspension. I like to think he lowered his fedora and told the mods, "How dare you upset M'lady." As a sibling, I am extremely amused. ^_^
My apologies. :p
Their logic seems to be that any user with an account on CYS should just be autobanned from CoG because we're all big, fat meanins... Unfortunately for them, that rule only applies to IntFiction. ^_^
I don't see a downside to this idea at all.
Initiate Order 66. Me first, then go down the list in the order of importance. Save the last bullet for yourself, but don't forget Eiwynn.
She has an account here and so is as worthy of death as all the rest of us. Try paying attention to the topic, it may help.
Look at your astounding hypocrisy here, "poison_mara", as if that's even your real name!
Here I am openly using my full name as it appears on my birth certificate, and a photo taken of me by my mother at my 27th birthday party, and you dare call me a cowardy??????
While you hide behind an internet persona and the fact that no one can ever understand what the fuck it is you're trying to say.
Eiwynn has an account on CYS?
The joke is that the Gathering Stardust people seem to want everybody who has an account on CYS to be banned on CoG. It's not directed at Eiwynn.
"Their logic seems to be that any user with an account on CYS should just be autobanned"
"If she has an account or not it has nothing to do with this thread."
MODS?? Just going to let her troll me like this? I despise trolls.
Very micro aggressive behaviour. >.<
Surprisingly. She actually posted a few times and made a thread in CC.
Hell, I featured a couple of her reviews.
Having a read through of the threads and have to giggle at the CoG publishing guide:
"Our games, their design, and our company values are inclusive and egalitarian. We encourage applications from writers who are women and other marginalized genders, LGBTQ, disabled, and persons of color."
Did not realise that women were a marginalized gender. :p
Edit: Oh! Context! So the reason they don't feel safe as a twin was because of some random people in the CoG forums talking about how they like to fap to fantasies of twins getting it off. Was wondering what the fuck being a twin had to do with anything. :p
Edit 2: Oh wow, the piggy back thread is golden! Poor little pink haired weeb, just trying to give the author completely fair and polite feedback and getting told off for being "rude". Seriously, if somebody thinks that "I read the story and it wasn't really for me" is too rude, maybe the internet in general just isn't the best place for them. >.<
Seems like the argument: it's hurtful to tell other people their work isn't for them or be of opinion that interactive fiction should be interactive.
Bloody actual hell, do these people just walk around dressed in bubble wrap? >.<
I just have to love the contrast between CoG and CYS criticism and response.
CoG Criticism: Sorry. This was just not for me (hope I'm in the minority in this.)
CoG Response: This is not constructive criticism! It's rude and unhelpful and you might hurt the author's feelings!
CYS Criticism: This story is utter shite, shat out from a rectum most horrid. Words cannot express the sheer REVULSION I feel after reading this literary turd. The universe yawns before me, and I feel my mind slipping into madness... I think I'll just close my eyes... NO! I need to finish this review, even as it tears out my soul. This is horrible, to re-iterate. The so-called "Variable" had no worth, as all the links that killed me killed me instantly. You clearly put no effort into this piece of shit. The sheer vulgarity of this obscene little nightmare sickens me. 8/8, because this review helped me break my Writers Block.
CYS Response: Greatest roast ever! ^_^
Can't even take credit. That one was Malk. :p
And now I'm getting commended for Malk's review. Thanks@hetero_malk ! And happy birthday. ^_^
COG based? Clicky link
This post is hilarious "I felt incredibly unsafe and don’t feel comfortable on the forums as someone with Muscogee Creek ancestry." You expect these damn wypipo to finish what they started several hundred years ago?
Honestly, I read all of these people's migrating to twitch WIPs and there are a couple of repeating patterns:
- Very woke, RO's with swappable gender except for one that's nonbinary to make a point and who are central to the main plot. Bonus point for a conversation about transition and gender where you can be nothing but supportive.
- Very... angsty. Self-harm, depression, alcoholism, dark themes but not *problematic* themes
- Don't like giving MC too much input, frequently wrestle control from the player - bonus point for unskippable mental breakdowns
- The MC is usually incompetent despite stats or informed competence - Romance-focused Unsurprisingly, most of them are friends on Tumblr. I'm always happy when trash takes itself out.
Edit1: Going through one of the tumblrs mentioned, it seems like some CoG refugees to Twitch announced the transition on CoG Forum and got their threads unlisted:
That IS interesting. Like, when I published POF on here and posted the link on CoG, they literally deleted the thread the second I posted it and gave some bullshit excuse of "it may or may not contain offensive material, but we can't be bothered to read it, or to check with anybody who did read it to find out." ... I think CoG just literally wants to take over the entire IF community and silence anyone who uses any other kind of platform so that as few people as possible know that there's anywhere else to go. :p
Yeah, I saw all that, but I thought that was directed specifically to CYS, not Twine users. >.<
Out of curiosity, can I get a link to the game that everyone was white-knighting over? ^_^
Okay, now I'm confused. I thought the WIP was from someone who was banned on CoG, hence why people felt the need to White Knight them... But the author isn't banned at all, so... Why the White Knighting? If a review upset the author, then they could've just said so themselves... I don't know. Personally I'd be really annoyed if somebody gave one of my games a negative review and some rando felt the need to dive in and start defending me, assuming that I'm some paper-mache doll that would implode at even the slightest hint of criticism. >.<
Had a brief read through of the game and I get where all the confused people are coming from. Some pretty, descriptive imagery is nice and all, but when your whole game is pretty, descriptive imagery, it's really hard to tell what's actually going on. Like, how much of what's going on is metaphorical and how much is actually real? It's genuinely hard to tell.
Like, for the first chapter I was like, "Okay, what the fuck is happening?" Then by the second chapter I went, "Oh! I get it! It was a dream! It was supposed to be confusing. Now things will start to make sense." ... They did not. :p
Looking back on the thread, I think that the "h-slur" they're referring too is "hermaphrodite" ... Which was only used in a direct quote from something they said, which suggested that they have absolutely no idea what that word means considering they refer to it as "transphobic" ... I mean, I'm pretty sure it's a case of people trying to take an inoffensive word and make it offensive, but even if it was offensive, calling the word "hermaphrodite" transphobic would be like calling the n word sexist. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. >.<
Poor little Gower trying to keep the peace. >.<
I think you're being very biased, mizal. That and lazy since you still haven't gotten round to reading my favourite Interactive Fiction, To Kill A Mockingbird... Also, just a reminder that you still need to recommend your own Interactive Fiction in the book club... I hope it's something by Charles Dickens. He's one of my favourite IF authors. ^_^
kill the Jews
And the dumb Spanish whores.
But whatever shall become of the smart Spanish whores?
That doesn't make any sense. It's like you're asking me what to do with a Black who doesn't steal.
It's incredible how much drama the various interactive fiction communities can produce. I like to imagine how it would be if this sort of thing carried over to other areas of life, the tears and anger and bitter fallout of a few drinkers of Coke announcing they were switching to room temperature tap water because all the acidity hurt their tummies.
CoG just going full internet police on people's personal Tumblrs now.
EDIT: Oh hey look, nothing is ever really gone from the internet!
(That's most of the original important meat of the rant anyway)
... Wait... So, they ban them for posting stuff they don't like on tumblr... Then after that, they ask them not to post stuff they don't like on tumblr? ... Or is this one of the people who hasn't been banned?
Pretty sure this person isn't publishing through CoG anymore and was distancing from them. This was the twin that had a laundry list of reasons of why CoG was a hypocritical toxic company and now she took it all down at the request of CoG lol.
Though I guess not everyone took everything down.
Fight the power. Lol.
... But why? >.<
Tumblrinas are generally weak and squishy would be my guess.
Honestly, I'm not sure why she backed down from such blatant bullying and fascism. I mean I thought the woke crowd was generally supposed to be against that sort of thing. You got a company that's going around trying to silence people at every turn.
At this point I'm pretty sure we're the only IF community left with any courage of our convictions.
Yeah, unfortunately wokeness and hypocrisy tend to go hand in hand. This is why I like this site. I might be called a retarded fool who's so lacking in manhood the mother of my child left me for a shemale, but at least I won't get banned for reapondng by calling them incestuous mongoloids that pimp out their own mothers to the crackheads living in the trailer parks and ghettos. This site understands that people here are responsible for their own words and actions.
Slander. Their mothers are all at EndMaster's.
Benholman everyone, CYS' favorite bit player in our glorious series.
Oh God, was I in there again? :p
Nah, they weren't even that interesting. Popping in without much interaction and then just going silent is boring. (Hell we kick lazy CYStians off the Discord for inactivity all the time.)
Amusingly, in the very first post I invited all tumblrinas, CoGites, and the like to actually express their opinions on the current situation with CoG directly on here, but the best we got was some fucktard from one of those groups trying to be edgy and splattering the most predictable shitposts ever.
Not sure what they hope to gain by spying in the Discord really since we're pretty upfront about everything on the forums.
... Maybe you'll say something so offensive that they'll have to demand that you... Ban yourself?
Jesus, calm the fuck down. he was probably just misremembering Mechanized Assault Unit
I wrote a Hosted Game. ^_^
Amusingly I used to contribute quite a bit to the forums when they were actually talking about writing over there rather than the usual whining about gender or whatever. Got along fine with most of the people there.
But hey, can't have me whipping up rebellion over there when they got that bit already covered by their own fucktardery.
all mechas look alike to me
