| a multitude of assfuckery
if you've been half-paying attention to crazy, conspiracy theory-level bullshit on the internet, it's obvious it has been taken over and the ones in charge are shaping it into a sterilized, ask-no-questions environment aimed strictly towards normies. the internet used to be about sharing computer shit and flaming each other about movies and video games. now it's a dystopian hellscape of adverts and neon light in a perpetual drizzling rain nightmare.
if you're not mega-popular - or even if you are - on youtube, google will allow the responsibility to fall on stupid AI, or the ever-ominous ᗩ ᒪ G O ᖇ I T ᕼ ᗰ, to terminate your channel; you're not allowed to question it or even be guaranteed a response at all. it was there one day and BZZT it's gone. all your hard work and trust in the google machine, subservient to pennies per view for advertisements.
don't complain, you don't know how good you have it.
twitch is another media giant as well. originally, they were a video game "Let's Play" site with audience interaction. now it's chaturbate-lite. if you're a pretty lady with an acumen for showing off your 𝓐 𝓢 𝓢 𝓔 𝓣 𝓢.. sweaty nerds with credit cards will clamber over each other for a digital crumb of pucci. this is a fact. twitch mods will hand out bans arbitrarily and seemingly at random for questionable reasons; it's however the unpaid intern feels at any given moment when the request slides across their desk.
if your name is Alinty or Amouranth, you can get away with almost fucking anything. paymoneywubby got banned for dubious reasons; no answer given, no reason given, fucking ghosted in emails. twitch is being run into the ground by their moderation team. as Charlie puts it "Twitch Mods Have Created a Platform of Fear and Toxicity." indeed. it's becoming more and more evident that it is not even worth the trouble to contribute on these toxic ass platforms if a channel deletion or ban is just one accidental click or phrase away.
a lot of it started when the daily stormer and/or alex jones got yeeted off the internet. it was a massive slippery slope. now nobody seemingly gives a fuck and everything is a surprise. it's no surprise, it's clown world crazy.
had to create a custom News Field and made it exactly eleven characters, because the characters after watch?v= is exact. added the above into the main news style where the normal <Field: Text> goes.
if there's something within the YT block, post that, otherwise, post the news text.
(if you post BOTH the YT link AND text, only the YT video will post. be warned.)
it works, but badly. it was a gigantic pain in the ass to figure out, so please don't break it. there is a contingency plan if it doesn't work. you can still embed iframes within a post like normal. multiple if you want.
if someone is still using coranto in this day and age, wewlad. the forums are closed and trial/error'ing this is some bullshit.
also, another downside to the pseudo yt parser - there's no edit function for the link. if it's wrong, it will likely break something. so, again, be warned. you may just have to delete the post entirely.
the absolute, sure-fire way to make sure it doesn't break shit is to use the EMBED copy/paste option from within youtube's share option.

in september, a forum for a long-dead game i used to play obsessively, implemented a "COMMUNITY-DRIVEN SILENCE PROGRAM" to dissuade people from shitting up public chat. there was always a super easy way of ignoring people who were making themselves an annoyance: ?ignore playername
it worked just fine since forever. if that particular person was super annoying, or private messaging you bullshit, you'd create a text file in the game's main directory (ignore.txt) and add that person's name. now every time you log in, that person is ignored.
BUT THAT SHIT IS WAY TOO EASY AND CONVENIENT
quote: "How about you stop talking and then it would be less necessary."
HOW ABOUT YOU STOP TALKING AND THEN IT WOULD BE LESS NECESSARY
take into consideration, however, subspace is over 20 years old at this point
this shouldn't be an issue the tools to curb bullshit were given out freely years and years ago naw too simple how about you stop talking and then it would be less necessary
there are a couple amiga emulators. FS-UAE and winUAE, respectively. but apparently the hardware was wildly successful in eu/jp, so much there's an abundance of old hardware you can get on ebay for next to nothing. there's also a lot of places that sell aftermarket shit like IDE to usb converters and SD card replacements for the 3.5 floppy. some of it requires soldering knowledge, a lot doesn't. there's even standalone versions, but i'm sure they are out of this world expensive. really neat shit, regardless.
we owned an amiga500 when i was a wee lad. i didn't get into computers until i was like 12 or 13, tho. by then, i had moved onto x86 PCs. unfortunately, the us didn't have a huge scene like the eu/jp.
