1  General / Off-Topic / CollegeBoard Lawsuit on: May 28, 2020, 12:34:49 PM
For the Non-American's out there, CollegeBoard is an organization that is responsible among other things for administering AP Exams to high schoolers. While the AP Exams have been done the same way for many years, the COVID-19 pandemic forced CollegeBoard to not be able to do it. CollegeBoard created an online poll asking students if they still wanted to take an AP Exam, to which 91% of the students voted that they would. Flash forward to mid-May 2020 and the AP Exams were being taken by millions of students. Many students had posted online about how they had finished the test with 5 or 6 minutes left to go, but the exam would not load in time for the students to submit. Keep in mind the students paid money out of their own pockets and took a course much harder than the normal class just for this exam. It was later revealed that CollegeBoard's online testing program had went out virtually untested. As well, some students did not have a great place to take the exams, like having to take care of younger siblings or bad/no internet. The poll that CollegeBoard sent out was only voted on by people who could vote online. Had it been through something like mail or through the high schools themselves, the numbers would probably be much different than 91%. Due to this, students are now suing CollegeBoard $500,000,000 US, as this is not just any test. This is a test that they wasted all their hard work for for a year and could heavily impact them in the future, and CollegeBoard handled it poorly. As of now, CollegeBoard is attempting to blame the students for either "outdated browser" (Most of the students used Microsoft Edge, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome, 4 browsers that are anything but outdated.) or because the students voted overwhelmingly for taking it (Not every student had the ability to vote in that poll). CollegeBoard is denying all claims.

So a couple people know that the reason my previous username was Apotheosis was because it was the book I was planning on writing. Before, I was merely trying to plan out the whole plot. It is now that I officially announce that Apotheosis shall now begin its writing stage. It is in this topic that I shall post updates on the book's progress.

Seems pretty self-explanatory.
5  Community / Other Forum Games / Change one word in the sentence above you on: May 25, 2020, 05:36:43 PM
Rule of the game is you change one word in the sentence above you, obviously.

You can add or subtract words, but only one at a time.

You may fix any punctuation and fix grammar errors like correct articles (i.e. a peach -> an apple) or plural/singular.

Here we go.

This could be the web games or the apps. Which one do you think is most difficult.
For me, it's gotta be Pizzeria, but that is solely because of the lack of doorbells and alarms. Counting those, Taco Mia.

Each post, you must describe the contents of the next floor
Each post, you must post a response to entering the previous floor
You must wait until another person has posted until you can post again

Example:
Person A: Floor 1: The Basement
Person B: Why is floor 1 the basement?
Floor 2: The Lobby
etc
Floors can be anything, so get creative.

Floor 1: Gym

Try to associate the above 2 users
Dakal: Kaito and AskJoe are both Global Moderators.
Kangablue: Dakal was the host of FC Games 3 while Kaito was a Judge
Apotheosis: Both Dakal and Kangablue are Better than Papa!
And so on.
Since this requires 2 people above, I'll choose a random user for the person below to compare me to.
To start off, the person below compares me and AskJoe.
Let us begin.
12  Community / Other Forum Games / Objection on: May 03, 2020, 11:31:52 AM
Yes, this is inspired from Ace Attorney.

Here's the deal: you charge the next person of a crime, and the next person has to cry OBJECTION! and state why the accusation is invalid.

Person 1: I charge you for killing Santa Claus!
Person 2: OBJECTION! I don't believe in Christmas! I charge the next person for spamming the mods!
Joe: OBJECTION! I am a mod! I charge the next person for objecting my accusation!
Person 3: OBJECTION! I am not objecting your accusation, I'm rebuffing it!

Remember: the accusations and the objections can be as far-fetched as possible. Just don't offend anyone and don't be annoying.

Anyway...
I charge you with necrobumping!

14  Community / Other Forum Games / Superpower/Side Effect on: May 03, 2020, 11:22:29 AM
So person A posts a superpower. Person B (the person who posts below them) chooses a side effect, then posts their own superpower.
A: Instant teleportation to anywhere on Earth
B: You can't teleport to the same country twice.
B: I always have a good comeback for any insult.
C: 5 minutes after the argument ended.

And so on.
I'll start.
