Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I would work on a project but it'd take nearly $100,000 for any reasonable sized project just for me, 2-3 years at the least, full time.

    What if you worked for free but I gave you stock options like whoa.

    Hah people that work for like $20,000 a year and take stock options on a startup are insane.

    options yes. Options are for suckers.

    Actual stock, well it depends. That can work out very well indeed. But you need to be realistic about what actual chances the company has.

    Plus my salary goes up for startups because there's about an 80% chance I'll be looking for work within 1-3 years.

    You won't get that out of a start up. Stock yes, higher salaries then the industry average, no.

    Problem is startups want breadth instead of depth of knowledge, so their needs and payscales need to represent that.

    It's also one of the reasons startups fail. Sucks for them, I guess, they need to convince me to leave my job.

    I think mostly startups would be looking for people willing to risk it to succeed. Not people that are happy enough at their current job. Plus, it's way harder to poach a content employee than a discontent one!

    Actually they want both. They will prioritize breath over depth but there is a limit to how shallow your knowledge base is and still be useful. And generally the reasons start ups fail isn't a lack of in house technical knowledge but generally a lack of capital.

    winky inspired me to finally really get serious about trying this
    does it mean my effort is doomed to incompleteness and failure y/n

    Go go go

    If I can take a stab at RPGMaker, you can do it

    Where's my $30k for the project, kickstarter

    I just love that the project has it so you can download the DIGITAL GAME AND THE DIGITAL SOUNDTRACK!! if you pledge $35.

    edit: the game is basically $15 anyway. so an extra $20 gets you a soundtrack?

    seriously this is just a bunch of hilarious bullshit. it might deliver, but it's so pumped up beyond what it really is that it's getting to be hilarious.

    here's another one for you
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/274047326/zelda-vs-jesus?ref=live

    What the

    like, it's not the fact that it's 300% funded. they're showing progress, listing names, everything. he hasn't done anything before, but the rest sounds pretty much like what a kickstarter should be. but I just can't see how they'd wrack up $10,000 in expenses on this. it's opaque as shit. most of the kickstarter process is opaque.

    at least when I donate to like, a charity, or something, I don't expect anything back and I can usually see a statement of expenses if it's a big charity.

    i dont have a good framework though, but I miss all the monster raising games from the early days of the playstation

    I kind of want to mix those style of games with something like spore

    there was a monster game from the ps1 era

    I never played it but it sounded amazing

    it was like, you put a CD in the game or something, and it makes a custom monster based on the music on the CD

    Are you fucking with us Skippy?

    DO NOT FUCK WITH ME ABOUT MONSTER RANCHER

    Someone should make a Bieber monster and a dubstep monster and make them fight

    dubstep's move would be an elbow drop

    That'd be quite a Wubset

    it's a pretty good move to bass it on.

    Any other boozers around?

    I am buying one bottle tonight - should it be:
    Remy Martin VSOP
    Old Forrester bourbon
    Four Roses
    Evan Williams Single Barrel
    or Forty Creek double barrel select which is apparently a genuine premium canadian whiskey, weird as that sounds.

    I vote: Not Remy Martin

    That's not me being a snob -- there are just better products for right around the same price.

    I will defer to other boozers on the other options.

    huh, Podly recommended Remy Martin as a good cognac. It does cost 75 bucks here though.

    I don't know much about brandy so i'm not sure what i would get for a nicer cognac.
