Do you pee in the shower?

Goes pretty much how you'd expect. The poll results :dread:

Doesn't surprise me at all though, Americans seem to really enjoy wallowing in their own filth for some reason. The last time we went to Mexico, we were by the main pool of our hotel and there was this loud bunch of them right by us getting louder and louder as the day wore on. They weren't offensive or anything, just at max volume talking. As it was an all inclusive resort, they were making the most of treating the staff like gooseberry fool and having the pool waiter bringing them trays of shots and beers very frequently, despite there being a swim up bar close by. As we got more pissed, we had to go to the loo more and more often, yet this group kept going. It was only after a while we twigged that they hadn't got out of the pool for the ENTIRE DAY and not only that but the other groups of Americans dotted around were stood doing the same thing. Turns out they all think nothing of pissing in the pool :| Its a common thing apparently, we were reading about another place to possibly go and there were reviews talking about Americans locking out the seats at the pool swim up bar for the whole day, because they sit there and just piss all day.

Lovely. :simper:

There’s usually so much chlorine in these pools it’d mask a decaying body for a year.

No and that's the problem. Merrily sitting at the pool bar, get out for a piss, get back in, go for another piss after the next drink, notice nobody else has moved, realise you've been sat in everyone's feculence. :dread:

Worst thing about that shower thread (apart from nobody has made an evilore joke) is the genuine disbelief from people who DO piss in the shower that anyone would find anything wrong with it. "Oh yeaaaaah but, like, you get fecal matter from your butthole, so, like, what's the big deal". I mean, ok then, say I piss in the sink, is that now ok? It all goes down the drain amirite.

Bunch of disgusting animals.

On the new design, just wow, so many critical mistakes
The browsing experience on desktop is particularly sleek as buttons vanish and reappear when you mouse over them.

Yeah congratulations, that is a cardinal sin of usability.

This is why people who design things to be pretty and supposedly volunteer to do these things because they "love you" aren't or shouldn't be working in the field. These guys are so far up their own arse.

This also suggests once again that nerds just can't work with colour, ever. Some people especially programmers seem incapable of selecting any colour apart from black or grey that is pleasing to the eyes.

You might notice that there are no gradients in our design because they are, well, old and serve no purpose other than a cheap graphical effect. There are still random instances of gradients with dark pixel borders around elements in their site that hark back to software from 10+ years ago, I don't get why not focus in cohesion and basic issues like colour before completely reskinning the site with useless features like disappearing buttons.

They seem to have stripped away as much information and functionality as possible to make it a spotty collection of nebulous icons and empty grey space. So much grey and that one purple. Not great.

Edit: this is so over engineered and fixing problems that don't exist I have to stop reading that thread, removing breadcrumbs that are "crude", sure, but they've existed for some 30 years and are an established way to traverse hierarchies and help search engines understand them at the same time. But sure lets nix those entirely to save one line of text on a page.

Oh but then, instead of simple single word links, let's have a JavaScript powered widget that fades in and out requiring a margin or other space to accommodate it to make sure it doesn't obscure other objects, so you can go to the top and bottom of a page or refresh it like that needs to be a prescient thing overlaid everything else. This is just a distraction. Who the strawberry float needs this gooseberry fool?

Why not just reformat the entire page to a list of avatars and one giant article with no other elements, and when you move your mouse all the other navigation fades into place! It'll be just like reading a book! You'd never know you're on a video games forum, you're just reading some dialogue from your favourite fan fic! If you want to comment simply start typing followed by hitting the enter key and you'll automagically be blended into to the text. To get the strawberry float out of this gooseberry fool, simply hit Esc.

The best interface is no interface at all.

Edit: the layout on tablet portrait view :lol:

New design has GG wound up in knots :lol:

I’ve got those big empty borders on the left and right in Safari on my Mac too.

GRcade has been full width since before GRcade via Karl and my CSS overrides for Firefox :lol:

I know we've been here before but, snap window or resize browser window, this is a user choice, don't force your reading preferences on your users. That's the entire point of responsive design. No that's the entire point of websites. This is a normal thing now. But even then, why there are margins on portrait view I have no idea, it's most probably because the nerds coding this are desktop snobs.

Edit: the saturation in that purple is so high it's causing purple fringing and halo sharpening artefacts in imgur's jpeg compression, it's literally so saturated it's burning the jpeg algorithm.

You don’t piss in the sink? What the hell do you use it for then? :?

Every time someone mentions that now I think of that casual scene in Deadpool, I still can't figure out whether that was a joke or just a normal thing based on Resetera/US standards of living.

:lol: If we had that there would be about 5 entries per year.

Edit:
Reason: User Banned (Duration Pending): Unironic use of the pejorative "SJW", framing diversity efforts as a world-ruining agenda

Agendas man, agendas. How do these guys even have debates?

I honestly can't believe how many unnecessary moderator actions are actioned on that site per day.

Edit 2: :lol:

I have some concerns with Reset. Please read this post with an open mind and I will try to be respectful. I signed up because not only the fact I see potential in the site, but also the fact that I have concerns and don't know any other way to express them besides signing up and asking so I can get my answers straight from the horses mouth. [---] I pray that my post was presented in the cleanest, most respectful manner possible. I am far too used to being banned for being me and it worries me that I even have to preface this with,"please don't ban me." Thank you for reading.

The user was warned for this post.
