    Dogs are fantastic. They're just so amazing. They're pretty to look at, and they're so nice and loving, and they're loyal, and they're dogs, you know? Love them so much.

    This is my current desktop background, and one I keep coming back to. I have three monitors, so it works especially well.

    One of my personal favorites is Magic the Gathering. I've never gotten super into the game, and I spent probably less than $50 on it in the last few years. So I'm not exactly crazy about the game. But there's so few games where I have as much fun as I do with MTG. The rules are a little strict and complicated, but when I'm just playing with friends, it can be as flexible as we want it to be. I can play games of MTG with just one of my friends, or we can have a group of 8 people all working against a 9th. It can be a team game, it can be an "everyone for themselves" game. When there are teams, backstabbing and betrayal can be a real thing, and it's really interesting when it does happen.

    And also, one time I bought some cards off eBay, and they sent 56 of the same creature (Gruul Nodorog), so I made a deck with all 56 of them and when I started playing the deck as a joke, and then actually won a game, everyone was laughing so hard. It's a pretty fond memory of mine.

    If I could have any superpower in the world... I'd say Cold War Russia.

    The one above my eyebrow, that's from that time when I was 3, and I jumped off a coffee table and managed to hit my head on it.

    The other one above my eyebrow, right next to it? That's from when I was 3, and I jumped off a coffee table to see if it would have a different result. It did not.

    Absolutely! I'm a little bit slow because of work lately (will get some things going in the next few days, with my days off), so feel free to get some things going while I work on those rules.

    I actually have a set similar to that, but it lacks the pop-up function you've got there. I have to say, the most impressive thing about this post to me is the fact that there is a section for "Additional Contributions". That's awesome. Thanks for the link to the screwdriver as well.

    All I know for sure is whatever happens on Reddit, I'm going to be watching from over here on Snapzu. It's nicer here.

    She's the interim CEO. I'm getting the feeling they're just keeping Pao around because she already had a bad rep, so it's really easy to blame problems on her. They let her be "in charge" for a little while, implement some unpopular changes that they've wanted to do for a while, and let Pao take the negative hit for it. Then once they've implemented all the changes they want to make, they can let Pao go and seem like the "good guys" for it.

    Maybe a little bit conspiracy theorist, but it's not entirely unheard of. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Absolutely. I've also got three IPS monitors, and they weren't actually too expensive (I got them on sale), but I can't go back to a TN panel. I didn't even realize how bad the colors were on a TN screen until I saw IPS. Having three of them helps too, it makes it tough to go back to one.

    Computer peripherals. Say what you want, but the $50 I spent on this keyboard is some of the best money I've ever spent (Steelseries Apex). It's incredibly sturdy and well-built. It's got extra buttons, which are great for games and video editing. It's got lots of fancy lights, and I can change them to match my desktop backgrounds, or the holiday, or anything really. I could have gotten a decent keyboard for $10, and I tried a $30 keyboard (Razer Lycosa. Just don't), but this one is just a step above everything. So worth it.

    The other problem here, is this kind of encourages power users. There's an actual, tangible benefit to having more of these points. On Reddit, they were just a fun number. On Voat, they make it difficult for you to counter negative content, and content you have no interest in, so it encourages you to do things to gain points. Whether this is reposting images or stupid jokes, or just "jumping on a bandwagon", to me it feels like it's basically encouraging a Reddit style "circlejerk". It might work out different in practice, but that's kind of how I see it going.

    I'm pretty okay without that content on here, as well. I think there are places for totally free speech, and then there are places where the content is a little slower and more controlled, but higher quality overall. I haven't been here long, but Snapzu seems to fall a bit more in the second category. Some clarification by the admin's, saying which way they'd like it to be, would be nice.

    This site is like Reddit, if Reddit had actually made a logical decision and improved their own website by including RES features. But I'm glad they didn't, it makes the switch to Snapzu feel that much better.
