    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.
    • Reputation Has Increased!   07/06/20

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

    I'm late to the party, but I just watched "How You Like That" and I think it really shows how unremarkable Jennie's voice is in comparison to the other members. Lisa slayed that rap part and Rosé's voice is beautiful. While Jisoo's voice doesn't vibe with me personally, it definitely has a unique sound and stands out.
    I think Jennie sounds fine on her own (I really enjoyed SOLO), but when directly compared with the others, she just falls flat imo.

    I'm biased because I don't like Tati, but I don't believe her at all when she says that she only made the video that sparked the JC drama after she was manipulated by Shawn and J*. I remember how she cried on instagram about JC's vitamin/supplement ad. She has shown in the past that she does not take criticism well and I can totally imagine that she got personally offended over JC's ad and wanted to have revenge on him for his "betrayal". She was looking for an opportunity and perhaps Shane and J* provided her with one.
    In my opinion, maybe Tati didn't really know what she was getting into, but she started this drama over a very petty fight and shouldn't be redeemed by this video.

    I am looking forward to another Hate and Shame, just so I can enjoy another KappaKaiju vid about YanDev. I really enjoyed his hour long video about why the game will never be finished and I wouldn't mind another one tbh

    Her advice is so shallow. "If you don't like your country, just go live somewhere else", yeah, as if it's that easy. Japan seems great to her because she's essentially a long-term tourist and hasn't actually tried to live the life of a normal person over there. Japan's office culture is toxic and extremely misogynistic. Hiring foreigners is not common practice in Japan (with some exceptions, like teaching), especially if your Japanese is sub-par.
    Moving your life to another country is a huge, huge step and a risk to most people. Presenting this as a solution in such a lightheaded way makes her look incredibly naive.

    sorry, I'm a bit out if the loop but did she do therapy before or is she planning to? Maybe that's just me but I personally would try to get some therapy sessions before or as soon as I'm on medication, because I expect some side effects (from the medication) and if therapy helps, maybe I can settle for some lighter meds.

    It's not only food that can be expensive though. What if your cat has a medical emergency? That doesn't have to be the case of course, but I see so many young people getting pets and then not taking them to the vet, even when it's clearly necessary (like to get them neutered), because they struggle to pay the bill.
    That said, I don't think Vina is struggling that much with money, so I think it should be fine. Still, getting a pet means a serious investment of time and effort and I hope they are prepared for that.
    Side note: Therapeutic effects of having a pet are often highlighted, but that does not mean you should get a pet. If you can't commit to wanting your pet to live it's best life in your home, you do not deserve to have a pet.

    Ugh, a lot of these former influencer turned OnlyFans sex workers seem to think sex appeal requires nothing but a pretty face and body. The posing is so bad. If this is your job now, put some effort in. Get a tripod to take your pictures. Get some inspiration from other sex workers.
    With pictures like this, the ones paying for your pictures are your fans and those have probably supported you before. I doubt she gets any new paying supporters via OnlyFans when there are so many more exciting options on the platform.

    Even if you have a lot of money, letting a palette expire and making no profit from something you put a significant amount of work into is hard. I don't blame him for wanting to make a profit. I just think how he handled the launch was trash.
    I believe (business-wise) the best thing to do would have been to address the issue with the expiring makeup while simultaneously announcing that a certain percentage of money earned with each purchase will go to some charity regarding the pandemic. I thought someone like Jeffree would be smarter than this but I guess he thinks too much of himself to care anymore.

    I think it might just be trauma and less about the probability of actually running into Margo. Maybe it's childish, but I can totally relate to not wanting to move to a certain place if there exists even the smallest chance of encountering someone you had a bad experience with. I had a bad break up years ago and I haven't been fond of the city my ex works in ever since.

    I personally don't find the shade names offensive. It's not like he used widely known trigger words or something. One of the more controversial names "Angel of Death" is a term that has been used for multiple serial killers (not just Joseph Mengele), which isn't the best look, but it's also a rather general expression. you can see nazi references in so many things once you look for them so I personally don't see malicious intent there. I think "Angel of Darkness" would have been a better name though.
    However, I completely agree that launching a death themed palette in the middle of a pandemic is extremely tone deaf and he should have postponed the launch.
    edit: also I think it's sad that people are more willing to cancel J* over this palette than over the dahvie vanity thing or the James Charles scandal

    She's got good skin, healthy hair and a normal body which makes her at least a 5 for "average" on my scale. On some scales she might even be higher. She's nothing special sure but acting like she is conventionally unattractive is a bit dramatic imo.
    Ofc this is without considering her personality, just looks.

    If your friends annoy you about not wanting to be in a relationship, you just have shitty friends. Sure, if you tell someone that you're not interested in romance whatsoever, you might get some weird looks or people will get confused, because maybe they don't know about asexuality. I don't think people will react with disgust or have a very negative reaction to it - the chance for the LGBT of encountering a very negative response seems to be much higher in my opinion though. I have a few asexual friends and some have told me that it can be frustrating that people simply don't "understand" the concept of asexuality and dismiss it as a phase. But none of them were shamed for their asexuality or feared to come out.
    Also, complaining about the concept of relationships more than occasionally (especially to your friend in a relationship) because you don't understand them is not typical asexual behaviour that other people simply have to put up with. It's just shitty behaviour. You want people to respect that you don't want a relationship, so you respect that there are people who want to have relationships.
    Your friend is coming to you with relationship drama? Just tell them that you won't be able to relate and that they might want to talk to someone else for advice. There's no need to have this conversation more than once tbh. (You can still offer them comfort ofc, because you're not a shitty friend.)

    I don't think it's a bad idea to watch cartoons or TV shows in a foreign language to improve your listening comprehension or your vocabulary. You have to read up about grammar of course, but overall I'd say it's a solid approach if you do it regularly and you stay focused while watching.
    What irks me is that anyone thinks Kenna is "semi fluent". She never got above the very basic level. "Semi fluent" is far, far away from what Kenna is capable off.

    I would give her lots of kudos if she just worked part-time in a coffee shop. I think working in cafés is a great thing to do if you don't know where your career is going yet but you want to be occupied in the meantime. She'd always have content to post too, since she could just rant about customers or brag about how they totally adore her.
    Knowing Kenna, there's the possibility that she'll quit right after one bad experience with a customer though.

    Bree's boyfriend (Matthew Serrano) posted a story of Bree smiling at Disneyland, so I assume they went together. No sign of Kenna in the story. In her defence though, I think it would be kind of awkward to hang out with two lovers.
