  1. YES PHALANX JUST CREATE A REPOSITORY OF QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FOR EVERYONE TO REFERENCE XD
  2. Isnt Tulsi pretty progressive on the economy? I mean she was one of the first politicians to endorse Bernie last election cycle.
  3. Thats true. Like I said I need to read up on this topic but there seem to be areas of greater conflict in the world so this one hasn't really seemed that important to me.
  4. @Feanor I don't think they're trying to protect a murderer from justice, I think they're against both murder and extradition to mainland China. I think they view the law as a slippery slope towards punishing Hong Kongers through extradition to China rather than retaining their sovereignty in this regard.
  5. I haven't been following Hong Kong news closely, but there's definitely a tinge of throwing the baby out with the bathwater attitude I'm feeling from Hong Kongers. I think they were right to come out and protest a law but now that the law has been repealed, they're really pushing their luck by staying out in the streets, shutting things down and getting violent (some, not all). It may affect the current arrangement they have with China. I just don't see a case where there is a net gain for HK after all this conflict.
  6. @Feanor I second Bors, your take on the Chernobyl series would be a great read on the praet. @Baledwyr No rush, let me know when you're free. If we have to delay the release of the praetorian, then we delay the release of the praetorian. Family comes first, I just want to make sure we have something scheduled and planned for when you get back and are ready to hit the ground running again.
  7. Not at all. It shows she's committed to the job she has which means she'll also be committed to the job she wants.
  8. I'm a huge fan of how calm, collected and calculated she is. During the debates she stayed on message and didn't get side tracked vs Kamala Harris. Essentially stabbed and twisted. She is single-handedly the reason why Harris is doing so poorly. I look forward to having a president like her who can communicate and speak with so much confidence and persuasion while also someone who could probably cross the left/right wing divide.
  9. @EagleMan I'm more of the preference of keeping as much inhouse rather than outsource to google or dropbox. Having a google link in our downloads section loops traffic back to Diplo and who knows, someone coming here following a map or art asset download might check out the site and engage. That opportunity for engagement is lost if we outsource but this thread just exists as an advertisement to the download which currently lives in the downloads database.
  10. A majority of map communities have migrated to discord which has increased the engagement between the map maker and map players. While discord has proven very convenient in the growth of sub communities, that growth has resulted in the factionalism of the warcraft 3 communities. When this community started wc3diplo.net, we did so with the goal of bringing in many different clans that all played similar games to unite under one platform for ease of access and use. Diplo's mission has not changed in that regard and I don't forsee us competing with Discord, infact, we encourage discord use. What does Diplo offer to map makers who establish their map communities here? Links and a hosting location for your map with download/view metrics available. Example: A map community page that's the landing page for your map. Example: Front page article access. (on our front page) The ability for your community mods to use our recommend feature to highlight some of the feedback or posts in your community that are behaviors you want to encourage Live Discord feed and community advertised on the front page. (bottom right of our front page, to stretch from bottom right to top right) Logos, marketing materials and branding from experienced graphic designers. Why maintain a website/forum community in tandem with a discord community? Both Discord servers and forum communities have a purpose to fulfill. A forum community operates like a library and a discord server like a coffee shop. Neither are interchangeable but there are definitely instances where one is better than the other. We're living in the instant response and gratification age of the internet where users have low attention spans and demand immediate answers. Most discord users don't scroll up to find information and thus tend to ask or comment on the same ideas or topics multiple times. Space is less competitive in forum environments due to large supply so users engage in this behavior less. Content is more easily curated and stays visible longer on a forum community than a discord server. Content on a site shows up in google's index for search results. Discord activity typically does not generate activity outside of that discord server unless you share your invite link to other communities/people/friends/etc.. Less stress on map makers. Community members expect near instantaneous responses when direct messaging or tagging people and this can lead to increased stress for some people since they can start feeling obligated or pressured to immediately give a result. Forums are more of a 'I'll get to it when I can' and promote more thoughtful discussion. This will be especially true when Warcraft 3: Reforged releases and breaks a lot of map mechanics which will draw users (more of them now due to the boost to the warcraft 3 population from reforged) to give more feedback on their experience playing the map.
  11. I never thought I'd see the day Mr AgeOfConsent got cold feet.
  12. Yessir, the goal is to create a pack like this for every map that establishes a community on diplo.

  14. Good morning guys. I figured I'd share the new logo .pngs I created for any AWLR streamers or youtubers who would find them useful. I strongly encourage and welcome anyone to use these images when creating content for AWLR as it will increase brand and map recognition. They are downloadable from the zip file here: Thanks!
