Posted by: Tessou Apr 23 2012, 07:01 AM
As PR Admin, my job involves tending to the members and answering their comments, questions and complaints.

To make things easier and to hopefully lessen the heavy amount of threads in this section, members are encouraged to ask of the mod team right here in this thread. What's up with this broken function? Why did we do something a certain way? What could we improve upon and how?

I'm attempting to bridge the gap so members get a quicker response to things when approaching the mod team. It's your forum, guys. Ask away. Note that this is for forum-related affairs, not personal questions.

Ask, and ye shall receive,
///TESSOU///

Can we bring back the Member Map? I'm really interested in using it again.

Posted by: Tessou Apr 23 2012, 01:42 PM
The "location" field on everybody's profile was implemented to succeed the buggy member map.

There are currently no plans to bring back the member map since it's so problematic.

Posted by: Möbius Apr 23 2012, 03:53 PM
While I understand and appreciate the intention of this thread, at the same I am not sure why it is necessary.

I always made new threads, it makes it easier to locate later than having one huge thread for anything and everything that might be brought up.

Posted by: Tessou Apr 23 2012, 05:06 PM
I'm coming from a PR perspective, what with the mod team and transparency and all. People want to know things.

That is the part I understand and appreciate.

But this has the potential to turn into a huge thread with a lot of different topics.

I don't see what a thread like this has to offer over multiple threads, each with its own topic. I can see only one difference, and that is a drawback ( long thread with multiple topics ).

Past history shows people creating threads for questions they want to ask, it's not like people won't ask if this thread is not here.

People who want to know things usually create topics to ask.

Just my two cents...

Posted by: Tessou Apr 24 2012, 03:49 AM
How about we just let things run their natural course and see what happens? I for one am optimistic that this will lead to a better relationship between the team and the membership.

Yes, but the fact that this exists shows a sense of openness to those kind of questions. Having been conditioned by other boards, there's only one place where I'd make a thread related to mod team decisions, and it's not here. I would imagine that most people would be apprehensive as well in situations like that, especially if they'd recently been warned, had a thread closed, etc.

No offense to Kyon, but was another mod really necessary?





Casey

Posted by: Tessou Apr 25 2012, 02:32 AM
Right now Perry and I are working out what to do about that. Remember when I proposed a full mod team refresh? Well, we're working on it.

Mod team changes are agreed upon by both of us, but lately we haven't been able to find much time to talk about it for about a week (I go to bed "conveniently" when he gets off work). I suggested putting Kyon on the team to replace another mod, but that translated to "add Kyon to the team" after a couple of days. The important part is that we both agreed that Kyon was the best choice among a pool of candidates.

You just have to give these things time.

Posted by: kyonpalm Apr 25 2012, 05:55 AM
None taken, Logan. I don't think another mod (whether it was me or someone else) was unnecessary either, since not all the mods can be online all day, so more mods cover more ground during the day and can catch things quicker.

It's not so much that we have so little activity we don't need more mods, activity isn't really the reason, I think. Although I'm sure we will be picking up in that regard soon, but that's another story.

As IDW is not a recognized government of any kind, we cannot tax members. Then again, we have no reason to in the first place.

With such a small treasury (which you can make bigger with your hard-earned dollars, hint hint), any sort of monetary incentives are out the window.

The idea of physical items for the site has been tossed around quite a bit. The problem lies in the design phase. What should they be? What should be on them? Will they pass copyright law? We can't just throw Takumi on a shirt and expect to get away with it.

Extra titles and badges are currently not being considered. We have enough member groups as it is.

But why? What's wrong with an active member becoming a mod, or anything else for that matter?

Posted by: Rudy Apr 27 2012, 09:48 PM
Seeing a member of the staff team - or better, an Administrator as the dominant poster leads to an implied feeling that the forums are pretty much ran by the mods, as opposed to being more of a community.

Posted by: Wanderer Apr 27 2012, 09:57 PM
Or it could be taken as the staff is very involved and social with all members.

Posted by: Nomake Wan Apr 27 2012, 10:41 PM
I'm with Atrum on this one. Why the heck can't someone who is clearly deeply involved with the forums be a part of the staff? I'm not speaking specifically about Carver, here--he just happens to have such a post count--I'm speaking in general. Why should a high post count be a factor for denying modship? Shouldn't the decision on who should be staff be made based solely on the merits of the applicant?

It just seems insane to discount someone because their post count is high. That has nothing to do with their potential to be a good moderator.

Posted by: Perry Apr 27 2012, 10:47 PM
I rarely consider post count to be an indicator of anything when I look for moderators. With a community like IDW, that runs for over a decade, post count really can't reflect anything. Heck, I can't even tell if someone is active by looking at their post count, unless of course they have very low post count.

Posted by: kyonpalm Apr 27 2012, 10:49 PM
In agreeance with Pear, Don and Atrum, I don't think that is how most people would perceive a #1-poster mod/admin. To be honest, I thought you were going to say the problem would be that it would look like there is such little activity, the only people really posting are the mods! That would be a more legitimate argument! laugh.gif

And even then, it's easier to simply look through their posts. Just take myself for example, joined 2 years ago, but have >200 posts, and seem to be one of the more active noobs now.

95.78 percent of all unwritten rules are made up on the spot as they are needed, and in a way that benefits who made it up in the first place.

Speaking of rules...

Minor revisions to the forum guidelines have been applied as of today.

Did you know that double posting has been written as a warnable offense even after we shut off the 72-hour bump limit? Rule removed!

The warning system has been written so as to actually be understandable. Specifically, the "warn cooldown" provision was heavily retooled to reflect the directives I relayed to the mod team a few weeks ago.

I took the time to correct a fair amount of Perry's "interesting" grammar throughout the guidelines. tongue.gif

We're streamlining things, and staff communication is beyond my expectations. I couldn't be prouder of IDW right now!

QUOTE (Forum Guidelines)
Warning Level Restart:

It is possible to restart or decrease your warning level. Depending on the situation, sometimes you'll have to wait 30 - 60 days to have your warning level decreased, that is assuming you can maintain your behavior during that period of time. If you simply withdraw from posting or have not demonstrated improved posting behavior, your warn level will stay. It will stay for as long as it takes for you to show progress in the way you post.


I would reword that a bit further. The way it is worded now, instant warning level decreases ( or even restarts ) are something to be expected:

QUOTE
Depending on the situation, sometimes you'll have to wait 30 - 60 days...


It's should not be sometimes. It should be a minimum of 30, possibly higher depending on factors such as repeat offenses, severity of offense, and so on and so forth...

The other thing I feel is in need of further tweaking is the following :

QUOTE
If you simply withdraw from posting or have not demonstrated improved posting behavior, your warn level will stay.


Withdrawal from posting, that part is fine. But if one does not demonstrate improved posting behavior at all, from the one that earned him the warn to begin with, it should be followed by further warns, which will eventually result in a ban. The second part of the sentence is just redundant, especially since it is followed by this :

QUOTE
It will stay for as long as it takes for you to show progress in the way you post.

Posted by: Rudy May 8 2012, 09:05 PM
I'm kind of perplexed by that wording as well. Is 30 days a standard minimum, or is lenience shown when members act nice?

Posted by: Tessou May 9 2012, 05:04 AM
I had a little bit of time this morning to revise the guidelines.

- Warn Level reduction text has been completely rewritten. It should look a lot better now.

- Ban Lift guideline was edited to remove the reference to the now-defunct Judiciary Committee.

According to the guidelines, members can edit their own titles at 800 posts, not 350. You gain the privilege of having a custom title at 300, but you have to ask mods to change it.

The best part of that equation comes in the fact that I'm colorblind when it comes to that sort of thing. If you screw up, I will act on it, and/or expect my talented mod team to make me proud again.

Ask Smikey, ask APX, ask many of my other friends on IDW that I have warned in the past. There is no such thing as "safety" and nobody holds a get out of jail free card. Not even the moderators. Not even myself. Not even Perry. The mod team has their own warn system that keeps them in check.

Core members can attach files with 350KB size, can store 200 PMs and can bypass the 30 secs flood protection. You need 5000 posts to become a Core Member.

The core member privileges are relatively similar, but the post requirement would shut out the majority of IDW members. Really, the only real benefit would be the flood protection removal. Barely anybody uses post attachments anymore.

The IDAS section is getting an overhaul soon. I noticed the outdated section and ordered some improvements over a month ago.

I think you could probably afford to make the 200-count inbox for all advanced members (800+ posts). I would recommend it for every member, really, but that probably would take too much space.

Posted by: Nomake Wan May 30 2012, 03:29 PM
Considering it doesn't work like Skype or AIM, I'm not sure what such a feature would entail. It would require changing how the forum software handles cookies on a user-by-user basis which I would imagine would be way more complicated than it's worth.

What specifically are you trying to avoid? If you are inactive, your username drops off the 'active user' list after 15 minutes. I can visit the page, leave, and I'll remain for 15 minutes as long as I don't come back within that time or change pages. Also, after a period of inactivity the forum wipes your 'unread topics' history as well. So what about being logged in are you trying to avoid? Is there a security issue with your mobile device?

Posted by: Perry May 30 2012, 11:44 PM
I am with Don on this, what's the purpose of auto logout after 24 hours? All you have to do is uncheck the Remember Me option when you log in. It'll log you out after you are inactive for 60 minutes. Then you have to log in again. Wouldn't that solve your dilemma?

This bit in the rules seems a bit redundant:
QUOTE
• Avoid posting spoilers. If you can't avoid spoilers, please be considerate enough to put a warning sign or spoiler alert on your post so that others may have the choice if they want to go on reading or not.

We have spoiler tags, why not just say to use them?

Posted by: Perry May 31 2012, 05:03 PM
Sometimes, people click on the spoiler button anyways and don't think about it. That rule is generally for Anime/Manga discussion where some people might not have the chance to watch/read the series yet. The general rule is to avoid spoilers if possible. But if one must post a spoiler, they should use the spoiler tag of course. But on top of that, say something like "this may spoil it if you have not read chapter xx" or something along the line.

I've yet to see people abuse that rule.

Would it be too difficult to make sigs an option on mobile version?

The goal of the mobile version is to make load times as short as possible. As most signatures here are made of images, that would go against the intended "feature" of the skin.

The straight answer to your question is "no, it wouldn't be difficult", but it will not be implemented because it would increase load times.

People still post in there, so it's not entirely a waste. Some folks want to talk about the game without having to set up another account. Until some sort of universal account system arises, that's just the way it goes.

Just wondering, what are all the different tags what we can use on the forums? I mean I already know that we have the standard ones that are shown on posting toolbar, but isn't there a code for super/sub scripts?

Posted by: Tessou Jun 17 2012, 05:42 PM
The forum uses bbcode (bulletin board code), which is a simple yet versatile markup language specifically tailored for message boards/forums.

The "quick list" of tags on the post form is quite small and features the most popular tags used for posting here, but there are a lot more that can be used.

[edit]Edit Tag[/edit]

Keep in mind that BBCode is an evolving, non-standard scripting language. It isn't like HTML where all the functions are pre-defined. You can in fact create new functions in BBCode that will only work on your custom forum software. For instance, while we use the {youtube} code, I have seen forums that instead use {flash} for the same function (though it works on many more services).

The basic formatting functions (bold, italics, font, color, quotes, etc) are guaranteed to work on any forum that uses BBCode. The exception is strikeout which may or may not exist (I've seen some older software that didn't support {s}). Once you get into more advanced code, though, all bets are off. I've never seen the {edit} tag before, personally. This is why a list of BBCode that works with your forum isn't something that you can get off of a random reference page, only the person who manages your forum can provide the full list of useable functions. smile.gif

Posted by: Wanderer Jun 20 2012, 05:34 AM
Ahh I see, never really delved into the internal workings of forum software so this was a good lesson. Also, would there be any possibility of creating a "Post-Merge" button, which just adds your new post onto your existing, like the edit button, but still bumps the thread without the double/triple post?

Maybe making the button insert the post merged tag.

I love the idea of making threads appear to have new posts after someone edits their post. Then we wouldn't have a need for bumping threads. It's cleaner, since it eliminates the need for double-posting, and still gets the job done of alerting people that new information has been provided in the topic (which is the point of bumping to begin with.)

Posted by: Perry Jun 20 2012, 05:12 PM
There are several things you have to consider with how the timestamp is handled in a post. Each post has a "creation_time" and a "edit_time." Likewise, each topic has a "topic_creation_time" and a "last_post_time." Every time when someone post a reply in a thread, the last_post_time is changed to the creation_time of the last post. Now, the forum topics are sorted by the last_post_time of each topic.

What you are suggesting to implement is to have last_post_time of a topic gets the edit_time of the last post in the thread. While that sounds fine, it's trickier than it seems. The forum topics page will need to be changed so that it sorts by the last post's edit time instead of its creation time. This step requires a minor SQL indexes re-configuration. An anomaly you will notice is some older posts will appear higher in the topic listing.

For the sake of simplicity, let say we have two topics in a forum - Topic A and Topic B. Topic A's last post time was 7:00PM whereas Topic B's last post time was 4:00PM on the same day. In our current sorting algorithm, Topic A will be listed above topic B because Topic A's last post time is more recent. With the new sorting algorithm, let say the same poster who posted in Topic B before decided to edit his/her post at 8:00PM the same day, giving topic B a more recent last_post_time (because the topic's last_post_time will get the last post's edit time) thus listing topic B above topic A.

I am still brainstorming the idea and what else are needed for this to work. Over at WME, they have the post merge feature but that was introduced when the forums were relatively active. With less traffic, I hardly see this as a useful feature. Your feedback is important, and I'll definitely think about it.

About that, what if it was a minor edit? Like forgetting a comma or correcting a typo? In order to distinguish a major edit from a minor edit, more codes need to be written and it's definitely not foul-proof.

Most people (or at least I) don't go back to edit their post after a period of hours just to add or remove a comma. And a typo can change the whole meaning of a post, depending on the context, so that's kind of a grey area.

True, it might take a bit more work than you'd think at first, but I don't think it's impossible to pull off. I think the reward would be worth the effort, since as I said, it would remove the need for bumping threads by making messy double-posts. And please (not talking to you specifically Perry, but rather whoever is reading this) don't say "no one needs to bump topics on this forum" - you may not need to, but someone else might.

Still, it's not a top priority, but I think it'd be a good thing to work on whenever you have the time. Lord knows you've made the forums so efficient, the only things to improve on are small ones like this!

Posted by: Tessou Jun 20 2012, 05:34 PM
It most definitely won't be foul-proof.

Think about this situation. If the edit_post becomes the new post date, what would happen if a less-than-stellar member decided to unearth a six year old thread and edit the last post with something like this:

"I'm just editing this to bring it to the top."

That is not a comma or a typo correction. It's just somebody being an ass, but the length would automatically trip the edit as "meaningful", just like the fools that enjoyed bypassing the old 20-character limit to posts.

But honestly, how often do people bump years-old threads without any relevant info just to be an ass and say "LOL IM POSTING IN A ANCIENT THREAD DURRHURR"? I don't even think I've ever seen that. I've seen plenty of thread necros, but nothing like that, and even if it does happen, it'll be so rare it's not even a factor. I mean, if someone wanted to be a dick and do that kind of a bump, they could still do it now by - go figure - bumping the thread with a post.

[ Post made via Mobile Device ]

Posted by: Tessou Jun 20 2012, 06:15 PM
Because handing a trait like that to only one post is not something that can just be done with a few lines of code. Alongside the "edits get treated like new posts" coding, I see no reason to implement it because it just sounds to me like a way to circumvent the bump limit.

In my opinion, if something is so important that it requires an exception to the 24 hour limit, other people would be posting about it in the thread as well, defeating the need for exceptions.

Posted by: Nomake Wan Jun 20 2012, 08:18 PM
I really don't like this idea, still. I think it's a complete waste of code. If you have something important to contribute, just post in the thread as normal. That's how it's always worked and there's just no reason to change it.

I also only see Atrum and Kyonpalm contributing to the 'for' side of things. Does anyone else agree that this is a good idea? What is the full argument for? I can make arguments against it all day long but I'd love to see an inrefutably good reason to let people bump threads all day e'ry day.

Because it's not "letting people bump threads all day", it's letting them bump threads with new information without having to make a double-post when the post restriction is up.

I believe his intention is to have the forum take care of it to lessen the amount of work for the moderating team, which I understand and support. The problem comes in the difficulty of implementing such measures, and the timing. The forum is at a low point right now and so we're not seeing the situations that would merit this measure being implemented.

Granted, we look to the future. If we implemented it in the near future, the site would be ready for any sudden spikes later on.

Tough call. As Perry said, we'll look into it. There will be more debates about the pros and cons.

You can't bump a thread by including new information through editing your post since threads don't say there are new replies when you just edit a post. If we have it set up that you can make a bump by simply editing your post (thereby triggering a "new posts" icon next to the thread, indicating the new information) then you won't have to make said bump by making a double-post that looks messy and unnecessary.

It's not working for me. I selected some text, pressed the button, and nothing happened. Also, the "S" doesn't look very distinct, so anyone just looking at it might not know what it does. Maybe come up with a new version with a more curvy "S"?

Also... where did the Spell Check feature go?!

Posted by: Perry Jul 8 2012, 12:38 PM
I am surprised you even noticed the removal of spellcheck! Truth to be told, that feature was no longer supported by modern browsers like Firefox and Chrome. It was working only on IE8 and IE9 I believe. With Chrome being the most used browser currently, and considering it has its own built-in spell check feature, the forums spell check is no longer needed as it didn't update itself and would only correct the words if it was spell very close to the actual spellings. (Meaning it wouldn't correct the word if it was too far off the actual spelling, which I deem a little useless in this day and age.)

I am going to restart the server and see if the cache would be purged. The button is not malfunctioning, it's just being cached on the server-side.

Posted by: kyonpalm Jul 17 2012, 02:39 PM
I don't have any experience with the inner workings of this forum, but I would imagine both "yes" and "no" do the same thing, since you have to be human to pick either, thus proving your humanity and clearing you of spambot status.

I guess you could say "no" is just there in case you want to be a jokester. awesome.gif

EDIT:
Actually, "no" is the default selected option in the drop-down box, so it probably does flag you or something, since even if you're a spambot, you don't have to select something that's set as a default. I'd ask Newt Gingrich about this - he'll know.

Posted by: Meteor Jul 17 2012, 02:58 PM
It's only there to prevent spambots from registering - The idea being that a human will just click on the drop-down box and choose the correct answer, but most spambots will not do the same and end up choosing the wrong answer instead (thus preventing them from joining).

I don't think it does anything after registration is already complete. Only Perry knows for certain.

Posted by: Perry Jul 17 2012, 05:00 PM
That's correct! Once you select "I'll read it later" Or "Yes" and pass the registration. It no longer affects anything. It only deters spambots in the way that they usually leave a option box untouched for things they don't "understand." You can be a jokester and select "I'm a spambot" after you registered. smile.gif

Posted by: Nerubian Jul 17 2012, 05:08 PM

I see Nerubian's last question didn't get answered.
The default option on that box is "No. I'm a spambot and can't read". Most spambots will not change it to a correct option and thus be prevented from registering.

Speaking of which: when someone chooses that option during registration, are they permanently barred from registering that account or can they just change the option to a correct one and finish registration?

They can always go back and change it to complete the registration. The error message you get when you choose the spambot option also helps you choose the right option. If you understand a little basic English and is a human, you should have no problem passing the registration.

Verbal warnings don't increase your warn level, thus do not "last" for any amount of time.

Posted by: Tessou Aug 7 2012, 03:50 PM
A verbal warning is just a mark on your record. It shows us that you have been informed of a rule violation, in case of further infractions, after which we will start passing out actual warnings.

Verbals are typically handed out either on a member's first violation, or if they've done something that doesn't necessarily cross the boundaries of a blatant rule violation, but is very close to it. It lets the forum know that we have our eyes on the situation.

A lot of members probably don't know this, but a moderator sending a verbal warning must attach a PM to the member alongside it. This is inherent to the warning system and cannot be bypassed. Even I can't bypass it. This is a direct communication from the mod to the member letting them know that they were out of line and need to get their shit together. In this manner, verbal warns are a bit more special than actual warns because they cannot be "fire and forget".

If they approach the admin team some time after their ban and reflect on what they did wrong and are willing to change, we try to see if they are being genuine or just pretending. From time to time (once every three or four years), there is amnesty for all banned members. We just had one last year and most of the banned members were unbanned without question.

Aside from that being said, I do not think anyone has a real chance of getting banned for offenses as he described ( starting threads in wrong sections? derp.gif )

Lots of smaller offenses add up. If you've been warned three times you're banned... so it's possible. Not too likely, since most of the time, the moderation team will tend to give a little bit more leeway at 66% because it'd be silly to issue the final warning (essentially a ban) to someone for posting in the wrong thread.

True, but I felt I should expand by saying that it's not impossible to be banned for small things. It may take many of them, but it is possible to be banned for stuff like starting threads in the wrong sections. What happens if someone keeps doing this without changing their posting behavior? Would we just let them keep posting in the wrong place? If we didn't think people should be banned over that type of thing, we wouldn't make it a warnable offense. wink2.gif

I would hope that the mod team would have the decency to keep the activity and just move the threads for a while, considering the lack of activity around these parts, instead of blindly issuing warnings as it pertains to in the Guidelines. awesome.gif

According to the Guidelines, it would be 4 warns before starting threads in the wrong section would get you banned:

QUOTE
Please take the time to read the forums description before you start a topic. Starting new topic(s) in the wrong section may result in a verbal / actual warning.


1 verbal followed by 3 actual, resulting in a ban.

Instead of a mod going " Hey dude, this thread is in the wrong section, but don't worry I moved it for you".

( This hypothetical situation does not of course count for the act of someone doing that for the sake of doing it. I.e., someone going to actually make a thread that says "this thread is in the wrong section, s**ck it.", said person should be issued an actual warn as the first measure )

'What [search] would require' implies not only the use of a word, but also the reason behind searching for such a word. The need to search for such a word.

If you were looking for a sentence that included that word, you could just use quotations to make it an exact phrase--thus exceeding the minimum.

Anything below that threshold will generally be too vague for the search engine to come up with anything reliable, meaning it would just spit out hundreds of pages at you to comb through.

The thing about kanji is true enough, but this is primarily an English-speaking forum. Optimizing the search for other languages would be kinda silly.

However, I'm confused as to what you meant by 'strings like [#] and you want to know what they mean.' Huh? What does that mean? blink.gif

Posted by: Nerubian Sep 27 2012, 03:34 PM
Dunno If you mean the grammar of the sentence or the meaning of [#]. I saw some folders on C1RZA's ftp server that have a [#] suffix. Since I didn't know if someone already asked what they mean I wanted to search the respective thread by the string [#] instead reading every page.

Posted by: Nomake Wan Sep 27 2012, 05:59 PM
The grammar of the sentence was confusing, or perhaps it was just the lack of context that made it confusing. Still, that's a very insignificant sort of search in the grand scheme of things, so keeping it where it is is probably best.

Posted by: Nerubian Oct 4 2012, 08:51 AM
Is it forbidden to paste content from a thread into another thread? I don't see a related rule in the forum guidelines. If it would only be forbidden for contents that contains offensives, member fights or flames shouldn't there be a rule to clarify that?

How many quotes of quoted quotes are allowed until it counts as spamming?

Posted by: Tessou Oct 4 2012, 09:22 AM
There is nothing stopping members from quoting from other threads. Just make sure to notify that it's from another thread so members don't waste our time with "REPOST REPOST WARN WARN WARN" messages.

There is no limit to quotes. We wouldn't count it as spamming until we found that it was being abused (quoting the entire thread without reason, for instance).

I mean 'context' as in the context your question is asked. I am assuming that your question isn't random, and is in fact referring to a specific event in a specific thread on the forums. Thus, linking to that thread as an example of why your question is relevant would be helpful.

You would have to revert the post database to an older backup to do this, which is in feasible for such an insignificant purpose. This is also why when Xiao mass-deleted his posts there was little the mod team could do about it.

The way the forum database works would need to be changed to add an 'edit history' function.

We do not have the ability to see "pre-edited" versions of posts. Perry might have the ability to do so via brute force on the site code, but the mod team does not have that ability. Admins have access to the Administrator Control Panel, which allows us to see timestamped logs of every action taken on the site, but we cannot see the content that was deleted or edited. It merely logs actions as "(Member Name) deleted/edited a post".

Posted by: xiao Jan 13 2017, 10:39 AM
The way IPB is written it'd definitely take some database cache-hacking to see a pre-edited post & some major brute-forcing to see a "Preview Post" before it's officially posted...

But it can be done! Morpheus told me that before I took the bluepill.exe awesome.gif

Granted it's not worth it to try & recover the spilled milk. We're not talking about credit card information or an FBI iPhone incident.

The time taken out of the person trying to recover xiao's lost mumbo-jumbo incoherent posts would be proportionally correlated two-fold cotangent to the actual value of the data that can be invertedly administered in more zenethical applications such as going to school/work or playing video games.
