I'm proud like a villain. Upsetting the natural balance of plugins...
Don't you mean a hero?
No. Yanfly is a hero. She has made tons of plugins people can benefit from. She receives both the glory and the hate. I am a villain. I teach people how to make plugins, upsetting the natural order of things and making them hopefully not rely on 3rd party plugins.
Is Yanfly a woman? Huh. Never really thought about who they are. I guess I like to imagine them as a cute, white fluffball.
If we can believe Yami, then yes. In one of the videos she wanted to thank Yanfly, because "she was a great senpai".
More like an old wise mentor I'd say? Showing people they don't have to rely on the hero's power all the time and can grow and change for the better is not something a real villain would do. And definitely not something the great hero would be against.
Mentor is kind of boring though. Being a villain is much more fun
If you want to be a villain, you have to act like that. Like giving bad instructions that will wipe irreparably the whole data folder instead (or something).
Did you really want to say villain, or total jerk?
A lot of villains (and criminals) are total jerks taken up to eleven in my opinion.
Many villains are, but how many if them are good villains? A good villain always has something you respect him for. Morals, intrigue,...
You might be right, but a prerequisite of being a villain is to be at least a little bit evil, right? You can't take the coolness of a villain without putting in the (evil) work.
But messing up others' projects would ot even be evil.
If Yanfly is the hero who helps people out to make their projects better, destroying them by giving false instruction would count as evil and make you the villain in my book.
What exactly would you consider as evil in this metaphor?
@mishakoc Probably something completely over the top and edgy. Maybe the evil code summons a hitman to take out your family (cute pets included). xD
Lol! So he is so ambitious? Dark!Poryg, I underestimated you! Is destroying people's projects something so trivial you wouldn't even bother to do it (cause it's too lame)?
It's four lines of code.
I mean, kicking a puppy is not really hard either but many people consider it to be evil.
You could probably kick a puppy with four lines of code.
Would you consider someone who kicks puppies a villain?
A villain to me is just someone who does things that have a negative impact on my life, or the lives of those I love. Kicking a puppy, in my opinion, wouldn't make you a villain, but might make me think of you as abusive or cruel. Poor puppy.
Yeah. A villain is not about petty deeds, although they are evil. A villain always does things that have a large impact.
Not sure if it's possible to play the part of a villain. Well, not unless you go out of your way to harm others, or perform harmful\malevolent acts just for the hell of it. We usually do things for a reason. Sure, sometimes we tread on other people's toes, and they may see us as the villain in their stories, but we're not trying to be a villain.
Well, I am a vigilante in certain fields, so I do evil to evil people.
Vigilantes don't perform evil acts, they take the law into their own hands. Vigilantes are wrong because they not only take matters into their own hands, but they also often target the wrong people.
Yeah, you have to make sure you leave no trace.
LOL! Come clean, @Poryg, are you killing people and disintergrating their remains in a bathtub of industrial strength acid? xD
Haha I don't kill people, I'm not that kind of a vigilante.
Then what exactly is evil in the land of plugins according to you? You said teaching people how to make them but I don't buy that.
Oh, I didn't think about all the incompatible plugins your students will be churning out with the newfound secret powers, sharing them with the community and all the desperate people who will suffer from said incompatibility who will, in turn, make other people suffer from a sudden boom of questions on how to fix all the possible mistakes ... Clever!
And masking it as trying to be helpful for naive learners who just want to get good at coding. I'm sorry, @Poryg, I was wrong, you're the real villain.
Is Poryg the Czech word for chaos?
Nope, that's still chaos, just different pronunciation.
@mishakoc Really? Is it spelt the same too?
Yeah. "zmatek" or maybe "spoušť" sounds like a real Czech word for it, but all of them are used.
I think the Greek form of Chaos is Khaos. I kinda like the Greek one more. xD
Oh, that one sounds very close to ours. Like the one in this video?
Yeah! It's strange how chaos means disorder, but khaos means void, abyss, gap, or nothingness.
Quite strange indeed. You're really incredibly interested in etymology, aren't you? (BTW, we are talking off-topic on someone's profile again, haha, sorry @Poryg)
@mishakoc I am! I enjoy finding out how words were used and where they come from. I'm the kind of person who also likes looking through dictionaries, and thesauruses in search of interesting words. I have two dictionaries containing nothing but archaic (Victorian and 1811) slang. lol.
In Czech we use "zmatek" for a disorder. However, we don't use it for a messy room, for that we hsve "nepořádek". "Spoušť" is used for disarray, but only when an orderly place has been visually turned into disarray (for example villages after a flood).
If you want to say a "huge disarray" in Czech, you use straight up "bordel". Usable both for tangible and intangible disarrays. In English "bordel" is literally translated as "brothel".
LOL! Brothel. Yeah, that doesn't mean huge disarray here. xD Czech isn't a romance language like Romanian, is it? I tried learning some Romanian back when I used to speak to a girl from there. Man, that was so long ago.
Czech is not a romance language at all. In fact it sucks for romance and if I can, I use English for it instead. But the it's awesome for swearing if you're angry.
No, no. I meant romance as in one of the romance languages (those related to Latin). English is Germanic.
They're not romance, they're romanic.
The only romance language out there is Italian.
@The Stranger Czech is a Slavic language.
@Poryg I thought Spanish or French would be romance languages.
