It was Alaskan who did it.

Is that fact or an educated guess?
TS several hours ago:
Me: "Rofl, did you remove VIP section?"
Rofl: "Yes."
Me: "Ok."
Fact.

There's already a discussion in the Admin board.  Hopefully we can get this sorted out.

Unless it was Alaskan who did.

General Discussion / We Need New Polls
« on: November 26, 2014, 08:37:56 PM »
Tyrex pointed this out, but he was ignored. The fucked up poll that was created by Top Hat broke a cardinal rule of polling, which is that you don't let people view results before voting. While you could not see results before voting, you could change your vote. This has the same effect as letting people view results before voting. It is psychologically and statistically proven that the knowledge of results at the time of voting unfairly influences and skews poll results. This is why, for instance, it is illegal in many countries for news agencies to release exit polls during elections before the polls result.

You could argue that the final poll, where you couldn't change your vote, is still valid, but the options for those derived from the first poll. The skew caused by this mistake could have been enough to change the options on the final poll, since some options only won by a vote or two.

Also, as some people including Statua did not even previously realize, HL2RP City was conveniently left off the poll, assumed to be a failure despite the downfall of HL2RP last time simply having been an untimely mapchange and a number of attacks.

The "biased view" being the common knowledge that you don't think your suggestions through?

I agree with Abbott. This suggestion has no positives, and it will only serve to piss people off.

Table Talk / Re: Transethnicity? Real, or Total Bullshit?
« on: August 10, 2014, 02:55:11 AM »
Yes, that does make you ethnically Russian. Ethnicity is an accepted characteristic of human beings. Transethnics are people who believe that they rightfully belong to an ethnicity that they simply do not belong to. It would be like if I, a person of mainly Polish descent and third generation American, claimed that I truly belonged to Anglo-Saxon ethnicity. I simply have no ethnic and familial history to justify a claim on being "Anglo-Saxon."

In a similar fashion, I think there is a problem with people who harp too much on parts of their ethnicity that do not influence my life. Along side my Polish ethnicity, I have Irish ethnicity, too. My last name is Irish, as well. Nevertheless, my family on both sides has adopted the cultural traditions of the dominant Polish heritage that we share. Since my Irish ethnicity has never had any particular consequence on my life, it would be silly to care much about that part of my heritage.

I'll concede that, but I still wouldn't name "Russian" as my primary ethnicity.  If I had to say what percentage ethnicity I am, I'd say that I'm about 50% German, 25% Russian, and 25% Hungarian.  Still, at the very least, I am a third-generation native-born American, so I personally find it a little hard to claim that I'm Russian when I have never been to Russia and really only started learning about the language and culture two years ago.
The percentages for ethnicity are not guessed. For each native-born Russian parent, you would be 50% Russian. 25% for each native-born grandparent. 12.5% for each native-born great-grandparent. So, for example, I am at least 25% ethnically Polish, since both of my maternal great-grandparents were native-born Poles, and I do not have the genealogical information to correctly calculate the paternal percentage.

I have to agree.  For example, I for one am really interested in Russian culture.  A lot of the customs strike a chord with me and I can see myself passing off as one if I ever went over there.  Also, my mother's mother's parents were Russian.  Still, does that make me Russian?

No.

Was I born in Russia?  Was I raised on Russian culture?  Did I grow up speaking the language, eating the food, and celebrating the holidays?

No.

If someone asked me for my ethnicity, I would give them Jewish and American because those are the cultures that I grew up with.  On another unrelated note, there's also the talk of the people who are 1/16 native american who claim that that drop of native blood makes them a native as well.  While that may have been widely considered true a century ago, I don't believe it.  If everyone in your immediate family is white, you're not a native american.

Shouldn't SGM's Ford Crown Victoria be in from launch as well?
Gross no. That car has problems and sounds terrible, and seeing the amount of hills in rockford, everyone is going to hate it. Government vehicles are being reworked and the CVPI is no longer in there.
Statua. You could just take the sounds from TDM's Crown Vic, smart one :)

Not sure what your sources are. In my class there were 8 people. 6 have iphones one had a blackberry, and i had my s4.oh and my instructor also had an iPhone. Of all the phones i see, at least 50% of the people i see and know have iPhones.

Like i said i will make a couple conversions and a template for anyone who wants to make their own. There won't be any more phones going in the game though.
Anecdotal. Actual statistics > classroom polling
