Re: World Mental Health Day

The thought occurs that it would be a good idea to include relevant content warnings at the top of posts in this thread. That's usually what is done for discussions like this. Off the top of my head important ones to include are trigger warnings about self-harm , suicide or suicidal thoughts , assau...

Re: World Mental Health Day

I'm a little amazed, I really wasn't sure anyone wanted to try to be part of this. I guess I just had to be a little more direct. It's never been easy for me to let people know what I want but it's another thing I'm getting better at. ---------------------------- It takes a lot of courage to put you...

Re: World Mental Health Day

Here I am again, one year later. A lot has changed. Firstly I want to again thank the few people that reached out to me after I initially posted this. Those messages genuinely had a profound impact on me. Though, I want to clarify, it was absolutely not my intent to make this all about me. Not at al...

Re: Commander Keen: the comic strip

Your original pun made me laugh tbh. I've heard "12 inches make a foot" a thousand times, so it was appreciated to see something fresh, even if it was unintentional ha!

Re: Keen 6 Most Favorite Level?

Bloogton Manufacturing. [...] The repeated climb towards the exit after you've cleared the entire level is the only part that feels not fun. You know, I bet a really easy fix for that would be if there was a door after the yellow key that pops you back up to the top, since you can't get to the key ...

Re: YouTube Automatically Privating Unlisted Videos Soon

I hate when social media platforms do things like this. I hope we don't hear any sad news like this one very soon. During the months I've been away from the internet this year, it seems like every major platform has done something to generate significant backlash. YouTube and Discord both changed t...

Re: MILDLY NEAT -- For all your random Keenery needs!

Recently I watched a video by Veritasium about the measurement of IQ, and the history and theory behind it. Very interesting to learn about. Some years ago when I was at a peak of my Keen lore obsession I read the Wikipedia article on IQ but this video makes it a lot easier to process the informatio...

Re: What Music Are You Listening To?

Maybe it's time I actually shared some of my own listening. I almost have many times, but I just wasn't ready to before. I am very particular about music and how it connects to my soul, especially with lyrics. Because of this, I used to worry that sharing the music I really connected with would reve...

Re: Billy Blaze in Khan Academy

Oh no way! Hello Billy Blaze. :lol The plot thickens. It did absolutely seem like something Fleexy would do though lol. Also I want to appreciate how they chose specifically the Pi monster as their avatar. Nice touch. I didn't notice that until I was writing my story, a subtle Keen reference I think...

Billy Blaze in Khan Academy

So I've been taking this math class and they had me create an account on a site called Khan Academy . This site has an extensive library of instruction videos and practice questions for math divided into topics ranging from kindergarten level up to college level. Khan Academy has a system to gamify ...

Maybe this will motivate me to work on it more someday when I have time. Ah, the irony, I had planned and prepared so...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

It seems that the German Keen fan site celle forum is completely gone. And with it, perhaps a lot of graphical and other assets. Man, I know the forum seemed to be falling apart for a long time, but it sucks to see these websites and communities crumble to dust. :( I hope they were at least archive...

Re: Life Updates Thread

Sounds like it's been a wild 2023, I'm glad to hear things are looking up for you now. My year so far has followed a similar theme of complete personal upheaval, though it too is starting to settle down now (hopefully). Have been trying to frame it as some robust opportunities for personal growth, ...

So what's going on with me? I haven't posted anything in months. I missed Keen Day for the first time since I've been online. I've barely been able to log in briefly once every month or so to keep tabs. Yeah, it's been a lot. I wouldn't know where to start. I may at some point try to write out somet...
