Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Can You Trust Kurzgesagt Videos?

This was pretty cool of them to do, so I'm sharing it. Imagine if all media outlets thought this way?

>Imagine if all media outlets thought this way?
Aye, edutainment is one topic where gossip and defamation aren't inherently baked into the subject matter and so you don't start off with an incentive to stir the pot, so the market can properly regulate clearly biased takes through public outcry.
Nice things.

I'm sorry, but (successful) entertainment inherently has a demand for viewership, which is itself dependent on appealing to the emotions of an audience, and this applies even when it is referring to more educational or abstract matters. This already makes it unreliable for doling out the truth of this or that.

>the market can properly regulate clearly biased takes through public outcry.

Any market will move around as it does based on demand, not necessarily correct information, and the demand here is often for justification rather than unbiased education, as the former will tend to feel far better than the latter.

And also places some restraint on the volume of propaganda they can shart out; case in point.

The volume they dispense will be tied to the level of consumption, which in turn is tied to how well they can play to what audiences enjoy hearing, this being a type of market after all.

Wow... this kid has a great CNN/FOX news career ahead of him....

First comment is gold though. From Destin from smarter every day.

>Howdy Stephen. Destin here. (Fellow engineer btw). I'm the guy whose comment you showed at 7:42 over some ominous sounding piano music. If I'm reading the tone of this video correctly, I think you're trying to imply that I've somehow been fooled by the Kurzgesagt video into respecting Phillipp and his team. Not exactly sure why you chose to use me as an example of a foolish person, but I thought I'd pop in and address my original comment. -For posterity, my comment to the Kurzgesagt team on their original video is: "AWESOME. Well done leading by example guys. This is what journalism should be. I have a lot of respect for you." I just wanted to say that my comment remains true. I'm happy to double down on my respect for Phillipp, and the entire Kurzgesagt team. Just checked out some of your videos on your channel for the first time. You’re very talented at making video essays. I especially enjoyed the piece you made called “public shaming”. With quality like this I have no doubt you too will one day have a very successful video that will not withstand the test of increased scrutiny that comes with that level of success. You’ll have to make tough decisions then. As educational channels, we hold ourselves to a much higher standard, but sometimes we get it wrong. I’ve formally asked YouTube if we can address this issue elegantly in cases where the videos are clearly used for educational purposes. They’re working on something, but it’s not ready for prime time yet. The engineers that work at YouTube have difficult jobs, and I'm grateful for this platform that they've built for us. If I may offer a piece of personal advice I’ve learned the hard way (from getting things wrong several times). It’s difficult to build a house made out of glass, but it’s very easy to throw rocks at it. It’s a good thing to build up others instead of tearing them down. We can do a whole lot of good when we work together. You’re blessed to be a very skilled storyteller. Imagine all the positive things you can do for the world with that skill. Have a good one dude,

I only saw a couple of those videos and they don't really present a well-rounded view on anything anyway so, what would make me trust them anyway?

Its just a rather offensively round and plastic animation with a fake computer voice. Anyone who relies on such a source as more than opinion is going to have bigger problems with discernment anyway.

Here's the comment I like most. It basically says what I was thinking but was too lazy to actually type.

>In a nutshell:

>Kurzgesagt has two videos under his belt that he isn't proud of. Many people have contacted him over the years expressing disagreement with the way those videos were handled. According to Kurzgesagt, he had been in the process of writing a script dealing with this for two years. Coffeebreak emails Kurzgesagt, bringing up one of these problem videos and asking for an interview. Kurzgesagt is suspicious that Coffeebreak has ulterior motives and is reluctant. Eventually, Kurzgesagt relents and agrees to the interview. However, Coffeebreak does not reply because he's "busy" with other videos. Kurzgesagt goes on to release his video explaining these two problem videos and takes them down. Coffeebreak feels like he was entitled to an epic EXPOSED moment of which he feels he was now robbed, so he goes on to make his hit-piece (complete with a trashy thumbnail that nonsensically reads "KURZGESAGT IS LYING"). He blurs the emails and "paraphrases" them, spinning a misleading narrative.
>Kurzgesagt probably should've told Coffeebreak that he was working on a video addressing these very issues. Coffeebreak should not have made this video. Coffeebreak does not own the rights to Kurzgesagt's mistakes.

Coffeebreak is just mad that Kurzgesagt dealt with the problem on their own terms, not Coffeebreak's terms. But that's the right way to do it. Deal with the problem on your own terms. Don't fucking prostrate yourself to this one specific guy who's decided he's going to deal with it for you.

He got 13,000 subscribers as a result of this discredited upload.
I got 3 subscribers in the past 2 weeks on 10 videos and many, many hours of streams.
Fuck YouTube.
