Today I will be talking about the drama that Discord has been dealing with for the past month. So if you don't know the story, here it is: Discord didn't ban Cub Content. If you don't know what "Cub Content" is, it is basically Furries, but Cubs (Animal Children) and is also porn. Some of the Discord admins are Furries, so they didn't want to disrespect their community. But it has caused controversy over the past month because the policy lacked sexually explicit, underage animal-themed art.

Discord soon later fixed the policy so they could stop the controversy. They also cracked down on other types of pornography using underaged characters such as "lolicon" and "shotacon". In the aftermath of the policy update, many Discord users were thanking the Discord Staff for taking action on the issue and for their transparency moving forward, signaling a positive first step toward making changes to Trust and Safety on the platform.

My Opinion

My opinion on this issue is that Discord should have banned cub content in the first place so that they wouldn't cause a controversy among the Gaming community. Everyone is not a furry. Furries should have the ...

In the modern age, we are experienced in using blogging platforms like WordPress, Ghost, Blogger, Tumblr, and many other dynamic website generators. However, a new trend has been moving users as they are deciding to host their websites statically instead of using their dynamic counterparts. But why are people deciding to move forward with this new trend? Is it any better to use a static website as opposed to a dynamic one in web development? Why should I consider one of these over the other?

What is a Static Website?

A static website is defined as a website that does not rely on a web-server to build your website. All pages stored are displayed to the user "as-is", without any further modification by the host. There are no databases required to make them, as they simply do not use them. External components (such as an application that displays comments – ex. Disqus) can be rendered on their servers instead of having to use your own server to do so. While this idea technically existed for a century or two, there are differences between the classic version and the modern version of static websites.

Introduction

Let's face it, Game Maker (the one by YoYo Games) can cost a bit of money if you want to remove their branding when you publish a game. While some people are okay with having their branding on the game, others may wish to remove it without having to spend a fortune doing so. However, why pay for the software when there's an open source alternative already available that looks almost exactly like the original software. But why would you consider an open source alternative adequate?

Why LateralGM? Is it Stable?

With LateralGM, you get all of the features that Game Maker for free. On top of that, all of the code is public on GitHub. You can find all the code available here. Cloning the repository there to install the software is recommended, and is the best way we found to use the software. While it basically works just like Game Maker (8) would, there are some takeaways from using this over YoYo Game's version. Here is just some of the differences we found:

  • There are still some bugs that still need to be worked out. For insta...

When I first started listening to the song that would later be used in this video, I already had an idea on what kind of video I was going to make. Even the title of the song is called "At The Farm", which gave me this idea of recording a trailer of a farm. A bit of time later when I played Minecraft, I met someone on the Railway Craft Server known as Landy, who would often give me in-game food to help me with my travels. Curious to see what was behind the action, I asked him about how he would get all of this food, and he said he grew it as this very barn. After getting a consent to record this awesomeness, I took out my in-game camera and recorded what would be known as the Landy's Farm Trailer. Please enjoy this short!

One day I was talking to a friend, who later would become an Aclevo Member, who suggested I come on a Minecraft Server and check out his town. I decided it would make a nice video to record, so I loaded up OBS and hopped on to check it out. I was amazed by this work, and recorded what would become the "Bayland Trailer". As one of the only videos I worked on using LightWorks Video Editor, the results were very nice. Check out the results in the video above and let us know what you think.

Happy New Year everyone!

As of this blog post, today is January 1st, 2019. Aclevo is going to be taking a huge turn to good this year. I, as your new Co-Owner & Secretary, will strive to make Aclevo take a huge turn this year. My goal for Aclevo is to make Aclevo run, even after Reasonably Selenium decides to step down.

Aclevo's 2019 will be the best year for Aclevo. This year, we will be assigning more fun and just-right tasks for our members. We accept anyone who is willing to join our awesome group (Reminder: We aren't a company and we don't plan to become one anytime soon).

In other news, let me not get blown away by leftover fireworks people are shooting for World War 3 here, and continue on Aclevo's legacy!

Your new Co-Owner and Secretary, TheCodingGuy.

Well, before too many people make me look like a bumhole, I want to say that Smash Bros is a really fun and generally accepted Video Game series, and the latest addition to the series is one of the best of the best at this time! With a campaign mode where you go around the world, collecting spirits and saving the fighters of Smash Bros. To a fun multi-player mode where you can face off against the computer or play with your friends in local play, to also an online mode which I haven't even checked out yet due to not having a Switch Online membership. But all and all the game is one of the best titles that I have played in a long time, it's just the game my mind has been craving and wanting for several long years yet to come. The light sensation that I get with this game makes me feel a lot better compared to the heavy sensation I get with most every other game which means that the game doesn't trigger my stress as much. The character roster for Smash Bros of course brings back every character from Smash History, along with some new faces as well, such as King K Rool as an example. I'm still working on unlocking all the characters myself and I love it when I funally get one unloc...

For the past years we’ve been recorded in public on security cameras, police bodycams, livestreams, other people’s social media posts, and so on. But even if there’s a camera in our face, there has always been a slight assurance that strangers wouldn’t really be able to do anything that affects us with the footage. The time and effort it would take for someone to browse through months of security footage to find a specific person, or search the internet on the off-chance they’ll find you is just unrealistic. But not for AI.

Long possible in Hollywood thrillers, the tools for identifying who someone is and what they’re doing across video and images are taking shape. Companies like Facebook, Google and Baidu have been working on such artificial intelligence-powered technology for years.

But the increasing rate of success and widening availability of these systems foretell a near future when every video is analyzed to identify the people, objects, and actions inside.
Artificial intelligence researchers have struggled for years to build algorithms that could look at a picture and tell what it depicts. The complexity of images, e...

After finishing the Cool Roller Coaster Video which can be found in a previous post on this blog, Pom said he would be hosting another event. Enjoying my previous work featured on this blog, he offered me another chance to put my video editing skills to work. So I decided to get out my handy dandy virtual camera, and started recording Pom's Drop Party. A drop party is a Minecraft minigame where players try to collect the most items, preferably valuable ones, and they get to keep all of them. Below is a video capturing the insane moments of this fantastic minigame.

Around two years ago, a server owner named ThePom360 asked me to make a video of me riding his Minecraft Roller Coaster. Due to the lack of content on my channel, I decided to take up the offer and load up my video recorder, Open Broadcasting Software (known as OBS). I then went on the shortest, but my first amazing virtual roller coaster ride, later to be uploaded to YouTube and shared with the world. I taught it would be an awesome idea to share it on the blog to see what you all think.
