I've got to keep you all up somehow, don't I?
Well, it's been some time since my last update, hasn't it? There's plenty of things going on right now that I'd like to tell you all, so let me get started.
First, college. In case I haven't said so before, I am in and finishing up my very first semester of college, and I like it, I like it alot. It's something I wasn't expecting at all, and wound up liking it, despite my nervousness. The payment for it is absurd, but if it's something you're willing to do, and will enjoy, it's worth it.
Second, work. I have been spending alot of time trying to find a job, since the end of this summer, and I've finally got one, I'm going in for orientation next week, so wish me luck! This, in turn, will detract from the amount of time I spend online now, but you can't win them all, right?
Next, the Pokemon Project. As you all may know, I announced I am working on a big project based solely around Pokemon, the biggest is a full roleplaying region. The layout, towns, cities, gym leaders, type advantages, badges, all that good stuff is what you'll see in this and if you roleplay primarily around the Pokemon universe, then this will be something you can use. It is something I wanted to do and to get me back into action
again on dA. I can suppose my Transformed Kyle series is now on hold because of my drop in inspiration and motivation again, but this will surely bring it back. I also plan to try to draw my Pokemon team, but that will take some work. I ask that you be patient with me, as I will try to get started as soon as I can.
In other news, I also am looking into a bit of an outing with a friend from this site, so that's something I'm going to really be looking for next month. I'll tell you how things go, but I won't be giving away any details of such unless you are someone I know.
Also, in terms of updating and new things, I've created a new character that will soon make his way into the main quartet to form a quintet. If you don't know what that means, you can probably Google it and find out.
Speaking of Google, let's start a conversation here. Have any of you heard of the new YouTube comment system? The one everyone hates? It was envisioned to become an amazing new feature release for both YouTube and Google+, by having all YouTube users link their Google+ accounts in order to do one key feature: comment. As of now, if you do not have a linked account, you can no longer comment on a video you like. This also means the new comments are now void of a character limit, so that means ridiculously long comments can be seen, including spam comments, troll comments, drawings made from characters, and some extremes as an entire book. I'm serious, the entirety of a book can be put into the comments and posted to a video, and even then, as displayed by more experienced YouTubers, the spam filter does not work, the comments are filtered by top comments or by newest first, not both, they do not go straight to their inbox but rather most go to Google+, and even when they find your comment that is worth replying to, from what I believe, unless they are in your Circles on Google+, they cannot respond to you. Which is very aggravating, as this has been the backbone of the site since it went up. The help video posted by Google about the new comment system, from the last time I saw it, received more than 30,000 thumbs down, and who knows how many more it has? Jonathan Paula of "Is It A Good Idea to Microwave This?" has stated his opinion, Nerd3 has stated his opinion, Emma Blackery has stated her opinion...through song. Seriously, search her rant up, and everything will become clear. There is plenty of videos on YouTube now of users expressing their dislike for the new system, as well as plenty of news articles. This has been one of the worst choices ever made by the search giant, and suffers by "Sonic Genesis syndrome:" taking something that has already been established as great, and
fucking it over. What do you think?
If I have anything else I'd like to say here, I will say so at a later time.
