>But to get the most out of your hobbies, you need to discuss them with people.
Usually, when people write something, there is a reason behind it. Some sort of event occurred that pushed them over the line to express their personal belief on an issue. Most lurkers on /bun/ have not experienced that event necessary to drive them to create discourse and dialog.

I can look at /jp/ and see the overwhelming amount of shitposting going on, but most of that isn't from people who regularly visit, but rather from trolls (i.e people who get their kicks from trying to instill misery or misfortune against others). Trolls themselves are driven to shitpost because they crave the hostility and attention they get.

Beyond that, /jp/ is a slow board because people generally enjoy their hobbies. Some people talk about their playtime in mmorpgs like cosmic break and wartanks, others do netplay/mahjong threads, and some discuss eroge/ahoge/VNs/whateverthefuckelsekindofsubgenrethereis. Oh and there's also /jp/ radio and now C79 stuff. All those people are driven to talk about those things because they encountered something that they deemed worthy to write about and wish to share their opinions with the rest of the group.

/bun/ on the other hand is not so driven, and there is nothing wrong with that. People enjoy their hobbies differently. Some like to socialize more, some don't.

Just confirmed I failed two classes. I've also been working on two projects the past two quarters, one of which failed completely because the other 3 people working on it had no motivation at all, and one other project this quarter, which didn't go well at all but at least can be saved because of the fact I'm working on it alone and I can continue working on it after this. The last of the projects is still going okay, but we're way behind schedule.

Feels bad man.

I just wrote a three-page document on how my newest soundtrack is mediocre and how the game it's made for sucks and how this makes all my efforts in making the soundtrack meaningless.

It doesn't feel all that bad.

I'm frustrated.

There's still a whole lot I have to do this weekend, but I don't feel motivated to do any of it at all. I try to at least do something productive, but any attempts at doing so fail miserably and make me feel more miserable. I try to play games to relieve stress, but I'm not really enjoying them and only make me feel like I'm wasting my time, making me feel even shittier. I just tried doing something productive again, and it failed again.

I'm frustrated.
>> No.14411  
I understand that feeling. Try taking a walk or (depending on where you live) a trip to a beach. Some fresh air can help, even if not much.
>> No.14412

It's 2:36 AM, so it's kinda too late for a walk. Wouldn't be able to go to the beach either even during the day, at least not without paying lots in bus fares.

I don't understand the logic behind this.
Why translate this much of the game then essentially put it on hiatus while MG and age fuck around sorting out a deal?
And all for no money?

I dun get it.

From Ixrec's blog:

>And since many people seem to be asking why I contacted age for a licensing deal: I want the English eroge market to expand by giving games as awesome as MLA (and not mere nukige) a chance to be legally purchased. Of course if there turns out to be no money in it for them or it takes far too long to release then I won’t bother trying this stunt again.
[...]
>And the big reason why this particular game is worth a shot: if I can’t get you people to pay money for Muv-Luv fucking Alternative, what the hell will you pay for? (Heck, dozens of anons have already claimed they would be willing to pay) The way I see it, if this doesn’t sell well then it can be justifiably said that there is no English-speaking VN market worth the companies’ time and us fan translators can ignore licensing attempts for the forseeable future without feeling bad about it. And if this does sell well, then I’ll just do it as many times as I can get away with.

There isn't a market for English-translated eroge, I could tell him that right now. Even in Japan it's a niche within a niche where business is tough.

He might as well try it and watch it fail. That way when people try to bring the topic up for discussion again he can point to this event and say "been there, done that".

Personally? I hope the deal fails at the negotiation stage. Only chance of us getting alternative within the year.

He was being a dick, sure, but that's no reason to delete posts - this is not a fucking care bear forum, we should be able to voice our opinions without taking special care to remain nice to everybody. He was making a valid point (people are only interested in the Infinity series, not in Nakazawa's other works), and so it contributed to the discussion. There was no reason to delete his post.

Sure, but I think we should also be able to expect mods to not delete threads at the slightest suspicion of being an Official Bunbunmaru Bad Thread (c). I don't really like the whole 'guilty until proven innocent' business...by being so trigger-happy, the mods will only prevent discussion. I was already hesitant to make any threads on /general/, but I'd thought at least that much would be accepted, since it was completely on-topic and discussion-provoking.

>Police Chief Sterling Owen IV said that there is no indication the crimes were racially motivated and that the murders and assault "appears to have been a random violent act."[10] "There is absolutely no proof of a hate crime," said John Gill, special counsel to Knox County District Atty. Randy Nichols. "We know from our investigation that the people charged in this case were friends with white people, socialized with white people, dated white people.
