I thought of making this topic for a while but I could never find enough good questions to ask so people can answer them... I think this should also be the topic where,

A, You will not be judged.

B, Asking a legitimate question.

And C, Just curious if anyone knows the subject you are asking.

Also, don't ask, "What is love?/Is there a soul?" Or things of that nature. It will cause a flame war and I don't want that. Same with PC parts questions due to how insanely flame warish that can go. Now then. Follow those simple steps and I think we can get on the road here. Let me ask a few questions.

1. Is it legal to have a duck as a pet? If so, I would really like to know how one can even get a duck or even train them. No... I don't want to steal and egg... that makes me look like I have problems and that I will be chased by a momma duck, I don't forsee things going in my favor by doing this... are there any legal ways of getting a baby duck and have it as a pet?

2. There is a cat that keeps leaving dead birds on my yard... I can' even pick up the dead birds with a shovel because hornets start eating the bastards in swarms! (I am not fucking joking... fucking hornets eating dead birds... WTF!?) How can I get the cat while also getting rid of the many dead birds on my lawn since I can't even approach the bastards because of the swarms of stinging bastards?

3. Is there any way to eat grape fruit without making my face cave in on itself due to how damn sweet/sour the things are? I am serious. I am trying to eat more fruit and stuff and I hear Grape fruit is good. It is also somewhat cheap up here... however... dear goodness, the taste of them! You think Warheads are sour? HAHAHAHA!!! Those are for babies compared to grape fruit. Seriously, I want to eat healthier. But why does everything healthy always have some kind of draw back like horrific taste and such!?

And finally, 4. I need something funny in terms of either video or a story... I have been kinda depressed lately. Please...

That is all the legitimate questions I got right now. I will give any answer I know about to anyone that asks and I hope to see the same from other people. I am also hoping that this topic will cut down on a lot of topics that randomly ask things and get shut down due to being off topic. So I hope I am making a difference with this topic.

Why has the Steam userbase number been stagnant for so long? Why doesn't the number noticeably increase as more and more games come to Steam? It has broke 5 million only a handful of times, yet new games are constantly being added. Sales are constantly going on, but the userbase isn't growing at a significant rate. Why?

#10 Posted by Jay444111 (2441 posts) -

Legitimate questions please. No, "What is love?" I described why in the first post!

@TaliciaDragonsong said:

Why?

Why I did this? Well a lot of people do have questions to ask and are either embarrassed to ask or that they can't even ask on here due to possibly making a spam topic. I wish to create a topic in which people can ask questions without being judged.

@falserelic said:

Anyone enjoys watching porn?

...Except maybe this question as well... yeah, people don't ask this because I have no idea what would happen if I start talking about this stuff... either a instant ban or a suspension would happen if I talk about this.

I am just going to answer with... "Somewhat."

Yeah. I am not touching this one anymore due to how... intense this could get.

Or it's just an enjoyable game with an interesting world to explore and crazy bosses to fight. The difficulty is nowhere near as bad as most people make it out to be.

Well obviously, but I mean, entertainment-wise, as a video game to "enjoy," what's the appeal? The game is just so dead.

Alton Brown of Good Eats says to put a bit of salt on grape fruit to bring out it's sweetness. In fact, putting a bit of salt on anything sweet will bring out more of its flavor.

It has broke 5 million only a handful of times, yet new games are constantly being added. Sales are constantly going on, but the userbase isn't growing at a significant rate. Why?

There are most likely multiple reasons for this.

1. The economy is kinda bad right now so people don't want to buy anything right now. Mainly video games.

2. Computers to even play games on can get quite expensive compared to ones that aren't.

3. Very unfriendly in terms of getting new users into it. I know I may get boo'd at for that one. But hey. Making a computer is intimidating while also even TRYING to set up an account for anything dealing with your money always makes people nervous.

4. Most of the people with PC's already have it. I personally think this may be the biggest one. I do wish that Valve and Steam could somehow get their install base into other countries as well. I would love it if we could somehow get legal downloads of the Final Fantasy games on Steam through Japanese video game makers. Same with getting people in countries like Japan, and China to use Steam more. I think pirating from those countries would really start to slow down if the service got more well known...

wait... I just checked Google and Steam does have a Japanese version. However it looks... exactly the same, nothing new of different sadly. I think this may show that many video game devs there may also not know how big it is in Western countries... hmm...

Way to many variables on this one.

I was exaggerating its legacy, I haven't actually played the game.

Have you ever played Super Meat Boy? I gather it's the same idea - the sense of accomplishment from beating a really difficult area. On the subject of pure aesthetics, though, the game does look really drab and boring, kind of like The Witcher only minus anything actually interesting like the giant bug in the beginning or spending every night in bed with someone or, maybe, an engaging storyline.

Well. It does have interesting gameplay, even though it is tough, it isn't as hard as say... SMT Nocturne... seriously... fuck that game up to the high heavens with that bastard Mot.

I would compare Dark Souls with... shockingly, Monster Hunter without the color and with more balance. No offense to anyone but I do find that they are both pretty... samey.

But it is a fun game. I do recommend it... just know that the Capra demon is a dickhead... that is all.

What looks drab and boring to you might be atmospheric and rich to someone else. It's definitely one of the most atmospheric games I've played in recent memory. The fact that it's almost a completely seamless world really adds to this. Screenshots and videos really can't convey the atmosphere it creates while playing.

What kind of consistency are we talking here? A fully developed stool, or more like a spoonful of diarrhoea drizzled lightly over my brow?

I also need to know how close to my mouth the excrement will come before knowing how I'm going to feel about it. Either way I'd probably feel like a naughty boy that needed a good spanking.

It should definitely be noted (seeing as I didn't make this very clear earlier) that I have not, in fact, played Dark Souls and was thus only delivering the opinion of an onlooker, not a participant. I do think the game is intriguing enough to figure out, just not right now.

Okay I'll ask a serious question. How are wiki points decided?

#38 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2029 posts) -

@SexyToad: I'm pretty certain that it is automatically calculated by a computer that takes in consideration (I think) the numbers of words written and what other pages you associated as a concept, etc.

That might be changing soon since I remember it being discussed by Dave in a video how there should be rewards for people who do well in editing pages to be better by making corrections or erasing items that shouldn't be in a page. There are a lot of things about the wiki point system they wanted to change for the new iteration of the website, if I remember correctly.

1. You should ask your local animal welfare folk how to go about keeping a duck. I'm sure people do it, in fact my aunt's friend kept them. But, she had a lot of land so I'm not sure if that's something they'll say you require! But yup, you're best to talk to animal specialists with that one.

2. Awh, the cat must like you! At least that's what I tell myself whenever my kitty brings me dead birds. Unfortunately I don't know what you can do to stop it! I was going to suggest citrus since cats hate that stuff, but it'd just attract the hornets! Is there a hornet nest? Perhaps you could have it removed.

3. No idea, that stuff is nasty! Eat blueberries instead! Or, mix it with something else to make fresh juice.

4. Whenever I want something funny I search something on Youtube and end up going on a journey through all the video suggestions. For funny try reading stuff by this guy: http://www.27bslash6.com/

Mr. Ahmad asked what was the appeal of it and then Mr. Believer answered with something I felt was misleading, so I stepped in to give my humble opinion on the matter. Not so much a debate, but rather a gathering of the minds; different though they be.
