      Notice for Anyone Using Dolphin Browser   12/13/2016

      I've discovered there's a particular bug that occurs when using Dolphin Browser here that autofills your username and password... into a thread's title and tag fields when you create or edit one. I advise anyone using Dolphin Browser at the moment to discontinue using it here until either Dolphin fixes their autofill so it doesn't do that, or until IP.Board releases an update that reverses what causes that to happen.

Found a new script, Need someone to record it now...

10 posts in this topic

I can tell you that it will be hard to get that one recorded. A Discord file has been discussed several times and there has been a general agreement that a Discord file would be too unsafe to do. Mainly because of the chaotic nature of Discord could make some unexpected changes or alterations. Another argument has been that we don't really know where Discord stands, not sure if the season 4 finale has changed that perspective.


 


Another view on the matter could be that this community mainly focuses on self improvement and self discovery instead of using hypnosis for recreational purposes.

It is a interesting script. Through I think it still needs work to be better. Both out of some safety concerns. And missed opportunities.


 


- The inducer is a bit short. It would be helped if it were swapped with a longer one to help deepen the trance.


- The characterisation of Discord leans a bit too much on chaos. While chaos is not really defined in the script.


Our minds cant grasp the concept of chaos. So its a useless term in that aspect.


Personally i would rewrite his character as thinking out of the box. Creative and spontaneous. With an eye for consequences as learned by Fluttershy.


- The deduction part is also oddly written. It comes before the triggers and is pretty vague. A more definitive deduction at the end would be strongly advisable.


- It does need some safeguards against abnormal behavoir.


 


Another issue is that this is a file from a member here. Which means there may be some issues in working with and posting their material.


 


As for whether such a file should be written. The community is divided on it. A file of his nature could offer great potential for the creative and philosophical minded members. Chaos itself is after all not more or less evil than Harmony is. But qua character, he is still in a bit of flux. While its obvious he is no longer evil, he still seems stuck in a redemption role.


 


Personally I have no problems with a Discord file. Through would prefer to (co)write it myself.

I wish I could record it.  I too would absolutely love a Discord file, but I'm still having technical difficulties with (lack of) microphone and recording stuff.

I can record it if some-pony straightens it out. My microphone is low definition, but i have a audio editing program that can help, straighten it out, give me a week and I can do it. (PM me)

While it is always nice to have new files, I think a Discord file is really questionable. Most of the big issues have already been said here, so I won't repeat them. For a file with him, we'd really have to be careful, but that's if we were to make an official one. I think if we were to, it'd have to be a general transformation one. Giving somepony traits of chaos probably isn't a good idea.

If somepony has an idea for a file, then I highly recommend talking to either Star Shard or R.Dash about it. Going around and looking for scripts elsewhere is dangerous. All it takes is a few wrong words to screw a ponies' mind up. That's a big reason we don't recommend anypony voice a random script they found. It's also why we wouldn't officially support any file made like that. I'm sorry if I'm bumming anypony out by shooting this idea down, but it's always better to be safe than sorry, especially when playing around with ponies' minds.

Gimme a day or so, I'll do it.

I would recommend that you don't. I've already posted my thoughts here, so I won't go into too much detail again. It may be cool to have a Discord file, but not if it means risking safety. We've gone over the script posted, it has some issues. Maybe Star Shard and R.Dash can go over the script at some point and fix it up. Until then though, it's best to stay away from it, for your own safety.

This thread has run it's course, so it will be locked now. This doesn't mean a Discord file will never see the light of day though. If you really are interested in it being made, then I'd suggest shooting a PM to either Star Shard and R.Dash about it. Anyway, locked~

      If ever there was a character to talk about, it would be Discord. Even from his debut in Season 2, we knew he was more complex than he was letting on. However, there is one aspect of Discord that shines draws more discussion than any other; his moral alignment.

      I'm interested in seeing what other ponies are thinking about Discord, and how his being chaotic effects his morality. Is he actually evil, or just being himself? Does him being chaotic make him evil? Did Discord's reformation undermine his purpose? What do you guys think?

      (Since doing so might create a bias in the thread, I won't reveal my opinion until a later time.)

      My way of explaining every single thing that happened last night in the chat both in and outside my mind.

      All alone
      Do you know what it's like to hold a throne
      In a kingdom of despair
      I crashed and burned
      Turned to stone by a lesson learned
      But I'm about to clear the air

      Forget about the words I've said
      They were just the voices in my head
      I don't have to listen to them anymore
      I gave into a darker side
      But now I've got almost nothing left to hide
      I'll crash and rebuild the world before
      I deeeeeclaaaared waaaaaaaaarrrrrr

      It's never been
      My goal to see you through the end
      But I'm going to try and change
      I think I've found
      A way and the strength to turn my life around
      Perhaps this monster can be tamed

      And I...
      Confess...
      There's times I feel it burning in my chest
      My soul...
      Designed...
      For something darker than sublime
      I can't...
      Resist...
      Visiting the victims death has kissed
      I can (I can't)
      I will (I won't)
      I'll try (they'll die!)
      To cope (I hope)
      To save (to kill)
      Protect (for thrill)
      And never (ever)
      Forget (forgive)
      --End of lyrics--

      People who know this side of me might think I'm no good to this site, let alone the world. But I'm much, much more than anyone at all on this site ever thought I was. I am not whatever anyone said about me last night. I am a combination of many things that make me want to fully embrace this side of me mentioned in the lyrics, and I am not one to be messed, trifled, or gambled with. I do very much have the ability to both apologize and forgive alike, but since nopony has almost ever given me the chance to do either, I will hide and bury all of my emotions and personality that I may have been known to have last night in a special place called "Under the Surface" where only I can dig them out and let them shine through, at least until I acquire an iPod Touch and make a good attempt at finding both my inner peace and my soul tulpa; when and if that happens, I will go back to the same old innocent self I was on the very first day I came here. My best friend Goldie Feathers has been very understanding and persuasive, and we both agree that I need to let off some steam, and this is the best way to do it, since I have heard rumours about me never sharing my feelings. So here I am doing just that.

      The side of me that I wanted to show through at the very beginning was my shy, soft, innocent side. But now, I will not go gentle into that good night, I will rage on against the dying sun. Why? Because nopony in this world can tell me who or what I am or control any part of me whatsoever; only I have that extremely special power.

      So, until I acquire that iPod...
      I am the balance.
      I am power.
      I am imperfection.
      I am danger.
      I am destruction.
      I am a force.
      I am the master.
      I am rebellion.
      I am chaos.
      I am Discord.
      All of this I am to any and all who dare oppress/antagonize me from now forth.

      Alright. I believe I've said quite enough here, time to stop typing. Goodbye.

      (P.S.: Whenever I should decide to come back into the chat again, from my good side I will remain a PM person, and from this side...forum man only. Those who would like to talk to me normally and not do anything like so last night, please do. I will most likely be a completely changed being and able to talk NORMALLY like you ponies do, and perhaps I might even eliminate my ellipses! And one more thing: do not take this whole post too lightly or too seriously, for I am merely just letting off steam and clearing my head out for some room to think harder than I ever have in my life.)
