ubuu, please save my friend, (read: me) his inner weeb wants to learn japanese.

ok screw that weeb shit, is there like any reliable source for learning moonrunes out there in the web?
I already speak 2 languages (my native language and English) fluently so i figured i could add japanese to the list.

Theres an ios thing called memrise, I don't know what other systems it works on.

 No.16602

Memorize the hiragana and katakana phonetic systems with something like this quiz tool: http://www.gyford.com/japanese/

Then learn only the basic particles and verb conjugations from: http://www.guidetojapanese.org/grammar_guide.pdf
or somewhere else.

Then decode Yotsuba&!, a children's manga with Furigana, that is the phonetic characters written above each kanji. The basic-level grammar of Japanese you'll find in Yotsuba&! is surprisingly simple, so simple you could read it by having a single index card worth of grammatical rules next to you.

Look up words you don't know at http://jisho.org/

Then you've got your foot in the door.

Basically, yeah, according tumblr we have to applaud everything, sugarcoat their errors so they can't improve and stealthfully talk trash about them while no one is looking or ruin their projects in secret, that's the politically correct way to be nice to devs.

Who said anything about new users? I was talking about projects, /fg/ is extremely chill compared to any of the other boards and it's pretty much a neutral zone where what you do is what really matters instead of who you are outside of this site. That's actually the core of anonymous imageboards.
I also don't see how making fun of other sites has anything to do with game developing, You're disregarding the main point of my post.
But if you want to go that way, I am happy to make you remember that tumblr threw shit at us too, so if we fucking laugh of them it's more than justified.

Su pls go.

Implying making fun of people actually labeling us as the terror of the fandom or something while spreading lies is a terrible thing! Oh yeah we're such a monster site! Fun is horrendous and evil!

No seriously, not joking, what do you want us to do instead, respond their flames with flame? We just decide to have a laugh or two, Ubuu didn't start situations with other communities, never.

Are forums/message boards dead?

For the past few years imageboards have been my main source of online interaction and discussion, but lately I've become bored of chans and have been fondly remembering the days when forums reigned supreme.

I know there are still many large forums out there, but what I miss are the smaller forums where there was a sense of community and you could have small talk and make friends with similarly minded people. The large forums that are still popular are just too impersonal and subject oriented to give the same experience.

So, are they dead, and if not, where are they?

Social media killed most sites. vBulletin and the like reigned supreme because they were the main means of communication. It was also a time where people were scared shitless about posting their info online (places like MySpace got a lot of flak because retards would post too much info and they'd get doxxed or attacked irl).

Nowadays it's highly encouraged to post your life online. Big companies even force you to do so in order to use their services (e.g. YouTube/Google, facebook). The new generation is growing up in a society that pressures them to post their lives online for school, work, and socializing purposes, so it's only naturally that anonymous and small websites like these are on the decline.

Saicomania
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2006224/

A documental about what could be the very first punk rock band of the world, active from 1964 to 1966 in FUCKING PERU. Pretty rad considering the time and specially the place. They remained pretty obscure until a few years ago.

Searching for Sugar man
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2125608/

The story of Sixto Rodriguez, a Detroit musician that recorded a few songs in the 70's and then disappeared from the sight of the world. He remained obscure and forgotten in the US, but he hit it pretty great in South Africa, becoming some kind of Elvis. The thing is, he never knew about it, until 1998 when fans contacted him to come to South Africa and play.

I'll go ahead and post some Vice docs I've seen. It's a shame the ones in Japan mostly have English only speakers as the host. That doesn't really work well though generally its shot well.

Sorry for it all being sex related this is just what I've been clicking through. Keep in mind some of these are NSFW.

A documentary about artificial sex/romance objects from 2005, before VR etc. really took off. The second half is especially interesting where we start to see some of the enthusiasts. See if you can spot the Azumanga plushes in the last guy's room.

Hey guys. I was wondering if someone could help me out, and I figured you guys might have some info.

I remember from a few years back seeing a thread on /x/ I think on 4chan about a japanese hikikomori girl livestreaming 24/7 in her apartment. I don't remember ever seeing her leave her apartment, talk to the camera, or act as if she was being filmed in any way.

She usually just layed around in a pile of blankets or browsed her computer. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I doubt someone will, but I just remembered it for the first time in years and realized how surreal and similar to Yume Nikki it was. I wish I had further info.

Thanks.

Uboachan, I'm looking for a scary story
and I don't just mean your standard ghost story, I mean something truly horrifying.

Something existential

What is it you fear the most, more than anything?
Are you afraid of death?
Do you have some sort of horrifying concept you wish to share with us, such as say… a mirror that shows a reflection of your greatest failure and how your life could've been different.

give me something bone chilling
give me what really keeps you awake at night

You have lived your life thus far very happy. The moment of true freedom has finally approached it is your time to live.

As you breathe a fresh air your life passes by you. A lifetime momentum of continuous equilibrium passes by you as you look towards the stars.

You remember every EXACT thing that made your life extraordinary and you have developed your mindset in a way, shape, and form that understands your understanding.

This very moment of breathing, you suddenly feel very negligible. As if a black hole is bending your understanding. YOUR EMOTION becomes E-MOTION.

The barrier of true freedom, suddenly becomes a smile. You fake your smile while you feel this E-MOTION (separation from reality) and from that instantaneous moment on, e-motion as if you are drowning into a ocean. The debts drag you as if you cannot resist this unknown force of gravity. You THINK you cannot escape because your e-motion manipulates your understanding as if you are unable to move. And this manipulated understanding has made it so that you cannot control your mind. From then on, you live a short life consumed by pure happiness that has condensed fear into your lonely soul.

It's a dark night on the mountain, barely illuminated by the light of the starting synodic month moon. You swing merrily over an ideal rocking chair, performing a periodic motion and oscillating with a constant amplitude of 2m.
The equation for said movement is as follows:

x(t) = Acos(ωt+ϕ) (1.0)

Where each symbols is your:
A = 2m: Amplitude
ω = 2πF: Angular Frequency (where F is the frequency)
ϕ = 0: Phase Angle

The instant velocity, that is dx(t)/dt is as follows:

v(t) = -Aωsin(ωt+ϕ) (1.1)

You consider the available variables at your hands. You ponder about it deeply. You have a mission. Today is the day your dreams come true. As you gaze over at the stars in the sky, burning at thousand of light years away, you realize that they're cheering for you as they collapse their own nuclei with their overwhelming mass and weight. You swear upon those compressed atoms that their efforts won't go to waste. Thus you clench your teeth once again. You regret not having a good math education. The problem you have to solve isn't easy, but it isn't hard either considering the standard levels of college.
