Overmykneenow is on some zootopia shit lol Sorry I haven't got back to you about furry collab. Next week, yeah?
For a brief moment I thought GIFs had finally been disabled. Unfortunately this doesn't seem to be the case.Sad times.
I was reading an article about research into the degrees of intra-species lethal behavior which indicated that mammals do it more than other branches, primates more than other mammals and humans most of all primates. The authors speculated that the propensity to violence was a genetic adaption to violent environments.Which got me to thinking.Among most Homo sapiens sapiens, the impulse to lethality is low to nonexistent.However, following the idea that environments push genetic adaptions, isn't it logical that there are in fact, two branches of Homo sapiens sapiens, one adapted to dealing with violent environments with violence, and one adapted to peaceful environments?Those who are commonly referred to as sociopaths and psychopaths account disproportionately for most lethal violence. Wars tend to be started by sociopaths/psychopaths.If these conditions were truly due disordered minds, then we would expect to see a wide variety of differences in brain structures as brains being randomly miswired. But that isn't the case: they all tend to share the same brain structures which are different from normal in the same way. And evidence both exists and mounts that these are genetic-based traits.Could not these people be classified as Homo sapiens sapiens raptor, a predator subspecies of Homo sapiens sapiens, the other branch more properly known as Homo sapiens sapiens pacatus (peaceful)?What do you think? Do you have a source for this article because it sounds like a pile of crap written by someone with mental issues of their own.All social mammals display intra-species violence. Male lions in the wild don't die of old age, they're most commonly killed by other male lions. Intra-species violence is an evolutionary advantage but so is cooperation. Humans have thrived from a balance of these two conflicting states.The thought that psychopaths are a different species is both ludicrous and dangerous. Dehumanising a section of society allows us to revert them to the status of animals - and we all know how well we treat animals on this planet. The discovery of the so-called "warrior gene" led to similar misunderstanding much like the discovery that European DNA is "tainted" with Neanderthal.
A very naughty pooch. I read that as gooch
My trick is thinking about work, personally. Sounds sexy
If we go this way, it would be a small selection of avatars offered at signup, otherwise it may add a hurdle we don't want. The easier it is to sign up on a site, with the fewest steps, the better.Or we could go the default route, and pick 2 of the most attractive models, like these: https://upload.lushstories.com/517603229-1.png https://upload.lushstories.com/1890207398-2.png Any hurdle will see a drop off in new sign-ups. Choosing a username and password puts enough people off, then asking them to choose an avatar ("Will I be able to change it afterwards?") will have them hovering over the close window button.Defaults should be simple and unobtrusive (think of the twitter "egg") you have to able to see that image on the same page a dozen or more times without it looking weird.Social networks often use prompts to encourage users to improve their profiles - LinkedIn is probably the most pushy as far this is concerned. Friendly advice about the benefits of improving ones profile - especially to new authors - could appear whenever new users log in.Whatever way you want to go, I think you still need a third non-selectable one for orphaned forum posts
Thanks for your input, OMKN. In retrospect, I agree with most of what you are saying. Anyone who does any design work knows that it often takes several revisions of the same design to come up with something that works. Preliminary conceptions can vary from 'almost there' to 'what the fuck was I thinking?'. You very rarely hit it out of the park on the first try.I think a more simplistic design would work best. I also love the idea of a neutral avatar to be used for the 'guest' account which posts of deleted members are assigned to. Good thinkin'.What area of the male anatomy would you choose for design number four?<img src="/forum/images/emoticons/eusa_think.gif" alt="Think"> https://upload.lushstories.com/1948879807-4-male-swinging.png To be honest, I don't think I would.I think i'd go for something like a pair of y-fronts and a pair of knickers. Clear and simple but also open for ambiguity (which we have in spades on here). I think it would also encourage new users to "get their kecks off" and replace it with a more interesting and personalised avatar
This is quite a tricky concept to create original designs for which avoid the old clichés. Here are a few sets I've been playing with but am not 100% settled on. I like the hearts. <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif" alt="Embarassed"> Criticism welcome. A good start and a decent indicator of what does and doesn't work1. Don Draper and Charlie's Angel - bit dull (not necessarily a bad thing) but logo behind seems lost and unnecessary. Looks a bit like a re-brand for Islamic State2. I don't like the watermark - the imagery is ok. I like the colour coding3. Too busy, pointless branding, colour coding doesn't work any more. 4. Best of the lot. The female is better as it's representative of eroticism - the male is just a male thoughWe're going to see these a lot so simpler works better. Don't bother branding them - they're not going to be pinched and seeing the url 20 times on a page just looks weird.On the broader scope - two avatars is certainly enough, unless of course you have plans to expand the options available for gender. Though I would suggest making a non-selectable gender neutral avatar used only for deleted accounts on the forum.
The article mentioned in that post is down. Hardly surprising, in fact it's probably for the best.
Just re-read what I posted on this thread four years ago. I've been here too long.Best advice: the only people you should ever tell stuff to are people who don't want to know
The lunchtime rush has long since subsided, I have plenty of tables to choose from. Alone at a low table for two in my favourite coffee house, a welcome respite from the daily grind, I relax into my upholstered chair with a copy of the evening paper. My eyes flick between stories of international tragedy, financial uncertainty and society parties. This place is so familiar to me; I can...

Her heels clacked as she strode purposefully across the parquet floor of the small, independent art gallery. It was late morning, midweek in early November and she almost had the place to herself. She had plenty of time and space to enjoy any of the exhibits, but she was there for just one small photograph. "Une fleur de Créteil", Emile LeFevre, Daguerreotype, Paris 1847 revealed the...

Let's talk about sex and drugs. Two drugs in particular: amphetamines and opiates. Not the dodgy kind you buy from a guy who "knows someone" - no, the natural kind, the drugs that are made inside our own bodies. When we first fall in love with someone - and we're in that passionate maelstrom - we can't eat, we're distracted, we blush, get butterflies in our stomach, our libido goes through...

After a hard day of meetings, I stepped on the train at York with a two and half hour journey back to London ahead of me. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself; the day had been long and productive but they'd be no more work today. No checking emails, no planning, just unwind on the train with the crossword and a couple of cans. My day had been going well but it was about to get a lot better....

Heidihad almost forgotten what dry clothes felt like. Two months in the rain forest had been an unbelievable experience but the constant heat, humidity and hammering rain was wearing. She knew how lucky she was to be here - in her first year at Cambridge and invited to join one of the most important studies into Pre-Columbian anthropology, spear-headed by Randall: the foremost authority on...

I need to open my eyes. Come on, wake up. I blearily blink my eyes. I’m lying on my back; naked in an unfamiliar bed in an unfamiliar room. How long have I been asleep? Why am I still wearing my watch? I turn my head to the right and see her. She’s lying in the bed on her side with her back to me, propped up on one elbow. Naked as well, from what I can see. The rhythmic tapping telling...
