    Guess what time it is?! Yeah, it's time for Horr-tacular 2019! The entire month where I watch a horror movie a day throughout October and let you guys know what I think. I'm letting you guys know in advance if you want to give out suggestions for Monday. I'm going to try to watch your suggestions, but I make no promises as I'm in my fifth semester of Vet. school.

    Let's all enjoy this spooky season together! Here's a breakdown of what I'll be doing each day of the week:

    Spooky Animu Sunday:

    Yup, Sundays are going to be devoted to horror anime. I’m going to give a quick recap of the series and my thoughts on it.

    Movies I Want to See Monday:

    Mondays are going to be focused on movies that I want to see, but haven’t found the time to watch. Feel fre…

    There has been a lot of discussion in the past about licensing, authorial rights, and concerns raised about users posting stories written by other authors for a while now and we’ve reached a consensus that is going to be implemented on the wiki very soon. This blog is to lay out the rule and respond to any concerns and clarify any misconceptions that come with this change in the comments.

    As I’m sure many of you are aware, the internet landscape has changed quite a bit with more focus (rightfully so) being placed on the rights of authors who write creepypastas and other horror literature. While I know that creepypastas have their roots in people copy/pasting them around without much in way of citation or accreditation, those times have chan…

    Jumpscare surprise return! Musical stinger!

    I bet you didn’t expect that! Did you really think I’d give up the ghost of the Halloween season that easily?!

    This is going to be a lot less organized and ambitious. I am in the middle of the Veterinary program and to be honest, I don’t know how this is going to go overall with classes, homework, exams, and clubs/organizations. I am going to be taking the path of least-resistance here while, at the same time, trying my best to show you some new, terrifying, or just plain terrible movies you may have not seen yet. So without further adieu, I bring you Travis/EmpyrealInvective’s Horr-tacular 2018!

    I’ll start this Horr-tacular with something that interested me when I first heard about it and disappoin…

    Hey all, it’s been a while since I did one of these, but I recently noticed an uptick in reviews and I thought I’d share some helpful tips for how to provide feedback. I’m sure some of you are wondering why this is needed or why I am writing this, the answer is simple. I have given a lot of feedback which has generally been well received or at least deemed thorough. I noticed some users discussing reviews and thought I’d throw in my two cents. So some of you fine folks may be wondering why all of these words are links, well… that’s something for someone with a ridiculous amount of time to figure out.

    Enough of that though, let’s get on with the meat of this advice section which will give some tips, things to avoid, and how to best help auth…

    A comparison was recently brought to my attention with Helel’s page compilation of angry messages and mine by a few intuitive users on Discord which made me get all reflective. Side note: This is going to be slightly personal so take this with a grain of salt (Oh God, the puns!) and feel free to read the title and skip to the last paragraph for the point.

    The two people had their concerns about why it was alright for me to have this rage page, and why Milan is getting derision by some for his. They mentioned that they thought it was unprofessional of me and could result in users being mocked for things they said/did and hesitant to contact an admin with a question for fear of being put on a target for ridicule. Here’s my response:
