youtube is just a bunch of little dorky kids who masterbate at the site of shanedawson. Devianart is just full of people who eat there own shit. Reddit is just full of stupid heads.

trolling aside....

yeah I'm surprised too, people don't realise that the hentai thing is only a small part on newgrounds+, once hentai came along it started to look like a porn site, and all of the porn ads didn't help.

At this point, anyone who uses a sweeping generality to describe the content on a community site, let alone a creative one, is a member of the 'helmets indoors' crowd.

Think about it...everything by everyone = hentai?

You gotta be shittin' me.

Anybody here home-schooled? What did you think of it? What would you think of a more "virtual world" approach to home-schooling? Think 2nd life, but more kid-oriented and a little more structure (like having to complete studies and home work, but then getting virtual cash/rewards and other virtual world perks)

Well.

In a flash game: Doing school work in a flash game. I don't think so. But I think your thinking along the lines of the SIMS, right?

In real life: That would be awesome.

I'm not home-schooled, and in a way I'm glad I wasn't. I think a pretty significant part of the knowledge you attain from going to school you don't pick-up during classes, but rather outside of lessons. Interacting with other kids, you know, not just chatting, but stuff like getting beat up by bullies, setting fire to trashcans and getting detentions as well. Lots of social interaction going on which has a significant impact on your personal development. I think it's impossible to recreate those aspects in a virtual environment.

two cents

So, a really fun game parents let their kids play, but is locked by daily homework within that same world? I'm trying to think about the incentive to make kids come back the next day without having gotten bored from the previous day. Usually candy and cookies makes them happy. But I guess those webkins and virtual pets are catching on and keeping their attention in real life outside the virtual world as well.

Well that kinda overshadowed my post , oh well :P

I think it would be one of those things that seem great but are too open to corruption , think about it kids get serious about the game side and less about learning .in the short term it would be ok i geuss

Not sure what you mean exactly, but from what I can tell young kids fall in love with games especially virtual reality type things mostly because they are very good at imagining things, not so much because of the content. This 6 year old comes into the lifeguard office every sunday, and he plays the same 3 games on a learning handheld thing, and they all sounds horribly boring, but he loves them.

in summary, whatever direction you're going with it I think it has potential.

Hm, my rant really went nowhere, I thought you were talking about completely home-schooling kids in general, not about building a 'serious game' or some sort of learning tool. For my study I've learned quite a bit about e-learning and serious games, general consensus is I believe that it doesn't significantly result in better grades, but it does make schoolwork/learning more fun to do, which is in itself a positive outcome. I'd say go for it.

Public school was like that for me too, to a point. Most of the time I didn't go. I was a chronic ditcher.

My folks taught me everything of importance.

Well, public school isn't that bad. Its just the dirtiness of the environment that I hate.

Know what I mean? The piss on the bathroom floors, the small hallways which they expect a hundred of us at a time to walkthrough, and just the overall school. The teachers I have no complain with. Some are nice and some are just crazy angry all the time. But they all, pretty much teach the same.

Though I will say this.. the most effective schooling probably depends on the person.

For example, I change the lightbulbs in the personal corner office of someone I graduated with.

Doesn't poxpower do pixel art? Not sure, but I recall his name as being relevant to pixel art, whether or not he'd be interested, no idea, but could be worth contacting him :-)

Seems like he does.. a lot :) I will give him a call

Catholic School --> Preaches insane Catholic beliefs, forces kids into a dieing religion and/or beliefs that only their parents hold

Regular school --> Doesn't suck as much as Catholic school

got 39k in 70 lines, that is a really bad kind of tetris. Tetrisfriends is a much better site imo, they have a lot of random shit they have put on there, but they still have good games, like tetris sprint.

My best time clearing 40 lines is a 1:17. That I dare anyone to beat lol...
