@Th3solution Maybe it's a Europe thing?

But a cracked disc? That one is new to me as well! How did that happen? What game was it?

@Octane The other day, I went to pick up LEGO DC Super-Villains from GAME and when the member of staff (with whom I've developed a chatty rapport) handed me the manufacturer-sealed box, I felt the disc was loose inside. Handed it back, politely asked for another one, got it switched.

And yeah, UK here and happens a good 40, maybe even 50% of the time.

Never had a disc come locked in place.

Now carts? They aint moving even if you throw it.

Never had a cracked disc though

@Octane It was Detroit. Just a crack in the middle of the disc, so it may have functioned okay, but I didn’t even try it. I marched it right back to the store. On closer inspection of the case it was a little bent as if it had been sat on or had something heavy placed on it. (It goes to show that steelbook cases are so much better protection) The store exchanged it with no questions asked. I’m pretty obsessive about my discs and cases. I like them to be pretty, not just functional.

So I discovered today that when I use my kitchen sink my neighbor below me kitchen floods. Apperarently a pipe is busted or something in the wall so water coming pouring out of her electric sockets and such. Tomorrow maintenance is going to cut into the wall to check it out.

@Tasuki Man, that’s rough! At least for them below. It all depend if you actually like your neighbor or not as to whether you stop using your kitchen sink, or just keep it running 😂

I'd leave it running. Nothing like pneumonia to start your day.

Though the fact it's coming from the sockets is worrying. The pronlem with flats is anything above affects below.

@Jaz007 that's nothing, my mate was at the job center last week (he's looking for a new job) and the blocker software they have there blocked the government job search site

and apparently they ain't allowed to mess around with the computers there so they can't fix it

I guess I’m just slow, but I only now noticed we can now downvote comments in the articles on the site. I suppose this is a relatively new addition. Not sure how I feel about this function. 🤔

Kidfried

@Th3solution Yea, I see your point. It doesn't really feel like it adds anything to the experience, now does it?

Kidfried

Th3solution

@Kidfried I suppose it may be a slight deterrent for a user to post an offensive comment, but it also runs the risk of just creating animosity amongst what has typically been a wonderful, respectful, mature, and well-behaved user base. (In comparison to most sites out there). People are certainly using the function in the discussion about Sony censorship.
It also makes me think twice before posting since I don’t know if my ego can handle getting downvoted. 😂. But perhaps that’s the point.

@Kidfried @Th3solution It seems you cannot see down votes on your own comment (and I thought everyone just liked my comments!). Anything above 5 is displayed as '5+'. Ant said it's still a secret how it works and how it will be implemented. The site doesn't automatically flag heavily down voted comments either. No idea what the purpose is though, but I'm sure Ant has some kind of master plan

Not a fan of the downvote feature. I feel like it limits conversation.
Just because something is an unpopular opinion/comment doesn’t make the it any more invalid.

@Octane Wow, Interesting. I didn’t realize you can’t see your own downvotes. Yikes. Well I suppose ignorance is bliss.

@Fight_Teza_Fight Well, it's not really any different to seeing a reply saying ''You're wrong'' with a ton of likes. This is just more... direct I presume. As long as it doesn't change the order the comments are displayed in it should be fine. If downvoted comments get pushed to the bottom of the page, you can definitely end up with a hivemind situation where everything that doesn't follow the status quo isn't being heard.

But you just said it was, because you can't see downvotes on your own comment!

@Octane Maybe... . I reckon people will think twice before posting as @Th3solution has suggested.
Who knows. Next up ‘Rep. points’?

@Kidfried That's true. It's only for other people to see; so I have really no idea what the idea behind it is!
