2021.10.21 22:10 thevegitations Why do so many people not like genuinely heroic characters?
I feel like every other story has a really annoying tendency to make the main character rude and quippy and irreverent at all times, usually by using constant pop culture references and having them try to "banter" with everyone because aren't they just sooooo clever and #relatable. You know, Tony Stark types.
But honestly, this archetype irritates the shit out of me, especially when it's not in a purely comedic work. I want the main character to take things seriously sometimes! I want them to develop as a character instead of as the author's mouthpiece for all the comebacks they think up in the shower!! The only time I've fully enjoyed this trope was in Sword Art Online Abridged, where Kirito is a deeply lonely and unpleasant person who gets clowned on just as often as he clowns on others, because he was asking for it with his behavior. THAT'S what real banter is, not just one person dominating/"winning" the conversation for the entertainment of the audience of socially awkward nerds who also think of social interaction as a zero-sum game.
And something I've noticed is that fanfiction authors even try to transform characters who aren't like this at all into some smartass Deadpool lite. There's more than one way to write a main character. And earnest heroes are a thing because kindness and selflessness are admirable traits! Some of my favorite moments in fiction come from a character doing something truly kind without any sort of reward or recognition, often at great cost to themselves. Not everyone has to be a selfish snarky bastard. In fact, selfish snarky bastards usually make much more likeable villains/side characters, because the story doesn't revolve around them and they don't overstay their welcome.
This is not to say that main characters can't be flawed. Some of my all-time favorites start out as cowardly, weak, selfish, stupid, mean, etc. (Though not quippy. I can tolerate all sorts of flaws from the MC, just not quippy.) But Jesus, what is so wrong with earnestly heroic characters? What is wrong with characters who have more understated or wry senses of humor? Why do so many sequels try to retroactively RUIN great heroes by making them give up on helping people or turn out bitter and misanthropic or parent their kids terribly? What's wrong with good, kind, heroic characters?? They can have depth WITHOUT being an asshole!!!

2021.10.21 22:09 Catarooni Are we not going to talk about how exploits are ruining the game right now?
My entire server is getting overrun by a single guild doing some kind of exploit that lets them stand on point, perfectly still, and not take damage. They've taken like 4 territories and are going to take two more, including the server capital. It isn't fixed and happened really blatantly today. How are there no threads about this and why isn't there more of an outcry? All the work we put in is just being wiped away by cheaters and shitlords.

2021.10.21 22:09 Hot_Bet1175 Backing up home screen shortcuts?
Did Android change the way pinned shortcuts are stored?
I can't restore them to a new phone with third party launchers
I've read some threads and it looks like pinned shortcuts (home screen shortcuts) cannot be saved and backed up in the same way as before, but even if it's true, there has to be Some way with ADB or with a rooted device, right?
Thank you in advance

2021.10.21 22:09 McGill_official One-way ticket trains – Is this possible un-modded?
I've been watching Nilaus play factorio on YouTube recently, and I'm enjoying it so much I'm considering buying the game.
I had a question. Say you have several mining outposts that are connected to smelters or the main base via a rail network. Typically, you would build trains in your main base, assign them a route and then they would endlessly loop from a station at the main base to one in a mining outpost. Is it possible to implement a system where is read of making the return trip empty to go pickup ores at the mining outpost, the train is simply deconstructed after unloading at the main base, and a new one is constructed at the mining outpost?
The new constructed train would need to have a preset route. Also the deconstruction of the train would need to wait for it to be empty. I am not yet experienced with signals, but I am just wondering if such a system is possible.

2021.10.21 22:09 captainhyrule1 Is my doctor recommendation accepted by dispensaries?
I'm trying to get my medical card, makes buying easier. Im in California btw. I got a doctor recommendation from this site nuggmd. I have a pdf that has my patient ID on it and the bottom half looks like temporary card information. The official government website says I need to take this, and submit it with an application to get my card. The place I got this from said this is all I need, and that my actual card is gonna come in the mail soon. And the nearby dispensary (to be fair I called didn't go in yet) said I'd need my card and recommendation. Can uh anyone quick let me know what's what?
