Lol, I made my first pastaaa!
What's on your mind?
2020 will be coming to an end which mean MCW rewind will be coming up soon.
So a vote will take place to decide which admin will write the next rewind.
Since I wrote the last post, Another admin will write the rewind. If any admins wish to to have a chance on
Writing the next rewind then write a comment below stating that you wish to take part in the vote.
From what I can tell, there doesn't seem to be any competitions going around in this wiki currently. The closest is the PotM; but that's more of an award, because entries are nominated by other people, and are pre-existing. So why don't we set up some sort of competition, maybe monthly, where the participants must create a new pasta based on a given brief, link to it in the chat below the competition Discussions post, and then they will be judged or voted on, and the best one get a prize?
Judging would probably take a while, so perhaps a voting system in Discussions, using polls or something, would work better.
Okay, the first time i tried this, people talked about how everything on watt pad stinks. I’m talking about things like Steve the noob, dave the villager, etc.
Alright, this will be the first ever POTM on discussions! Quite a big change for everyone. Now, let's get this thing started!
Use the thread for nominating ONLY.
Pastas must be of acceptable quality: This includes grammar, spelling, etc.
Pastas that have won POTM in the past cannot be nominated again. However, pastas that were nominated in past POTMs but did not win are acceptable.
Do not ask others to nominate your pasta.
Do not nominate twice.

Since I’m getting “fAKe” on my pasta. All pastas are fake.
The qaulity to thrash ratio on here is slightly subjective, but the mass amount of articles on here that are "marked for review" has remain untouched. I say we set a deadline, and when the time comes we delete 'em all.
Just give me a date if you agree. Otherwise this discussion is up for objections.

This is part 2 of how to make a logo. Last time, we talked about the basics of the circular logo. This time, we'll be talking about the diamond-like shape I've used from Generation 7 and onward. There are several forms of the diamond shaped logo, it's changed quite a bit considering it's only been around for 2 generations so far. Today I'm going to show you several design outcomes, so enjoy!
First, let's get into what you need. If you read part 1, you already know what you need and probably already have it. But if you haven't, I'll happily list everything again.
Paint Program (paint.net)
With all that out of the way, we may begin.
First of all, I'd like to admit that the diamond shaped logo is much more complex than a circle. You'll likely fail at first, but that's why you can always try again. There's several different ways you can do it, this is just my preferred method of doing it.
Anyway, let's begin. Load up the editor, and upon loading you may find a 800 x
600 pixel blank white canvas. You may use it, but I recommend 512 x 512 because that's all the space you'll really need for this. To get a 512 x 512 canvas, look at the top left corner and find "File." Once you did that, click on it and press "New." That should pop up a small window with several different options. Go to the Width and Length and set both bars to 512 x 512, touch nothing else.
Upon doing that and hitting enter, a 512 x 512 pixel blank white canvas should appear. Now what we have to do is remove the white background. You see, the white isn't actually the default blank background, meaning that if you try making your logo on that white background, you're going to be pretty unsuccessful in doing so. I don't know why it's there but we're going to remove it. On the left should be a tab with your tools.
On the very top left of said tab should be a blue square. Click the blue square, and from here you want to completely select the entire canvas, not an inch of that white should be spared. Once you have that done, you may delete the white by pressing Ctrl + X. And now, you should see a checkers background which is good.
Now here's where we officially start. Going back to the tool tab, select the triangle, square, and circle icon on the very bottom, this is the shape tool. Look up at the top, and you should see several different options. These include the shape, the drawing / filling of the shape, and brush width. Click on the shape and change it to a circle. Then go over to the brush width and select 10. Brush width determines the thickness of the shape your making. Do not touch the drawing / filling of the shape.
Now, over to your right is the color tab which it's presence should've been very telling from the get go. Select a light blue, and then head back over to the canvas. While holding shift, hold left click while dragging back to make your circle. Make it decently sized, not too big but nothing small. Lastly, look at the top again and go into Effects, Object Align, and Center Both to centralize it. Now you have your blue circle, we're going to make a green diamond / rhombus.
Make a new layer by going to the layer tab in the bottom right and pressing the blue square with the green plus sign. You probably know what you're doing at this point, all you need to do is change the shape and then convert the blue to a bright green / lime. Do the exact same as before. Shift + Click, and drag out. You want the diamond to ALMOST touch the edges of the canvas, but don't let them. Once again, centralize it with Center Both.
Lastly, create another new layer, but drag it below so it's the bottom layer. Change the color to a bright red, and then select a triangle as the shape. Now, you want to Shift + Click one more time, and then drag upward. Then stop once it's at a decent size, then drag downward to invert the direction of the shape. The triangle should also narrowly touch the edges of the canvas. Instead of hitting Center Both this time, hit Center Horizontal.
The image above should be something similar to what you have. A blue circle, a green rhombus, and a red triangle. The reason why these are multicolored is to simply help your eyes direct what you need to do next. As you can tell from my Gen 9 logo, I cut out a lot of the conflicting interior lines to give it a clean, emptier space. That's exactly what you want to do. But I know figuring out what you need to delete is a big task, so take a look at this next image.
The parts I traced over horribly with black are the exact parts you want to erase. Most of it is the triangle and the circle that are cutting the rhombus into segments. And remember, take your time with it! And after everything, your logo should look a little something like this.
Good news! The hard part is now over, everything else should be comparably easier. Now that we have something close to the final shape, we can merge all the 3 layers together by going back into the layer tab and pressing the two sqaures with the purple arrow pointing down twice. Here's where we paint it black / white. Trace back to the top and find Adjustments. Then hit Brightness / Contrast. Scale the brightness all the way down to -100 and the contrast to 100. Now the logo should be perfectly black. But we're not done yet!
Make 2 new layers again and zoom in REALLY. REALLY. FAR. Head to one of the vertical edges of the now combined rhombus. Since I hate just the slightest off-putting of symmetry, I want to make sure one side is exactly the same as the other. The way to do that? We need to copy and paste it. Select a red color and then head back to the tool tab. On the bottom right, should be a weird line icon. Select that, and that is the line tool. On the top should be brush width. This time, select the brush width to 1.
Now while holding Shift once again, make a line all the way down the logo. Then go to the other layer you made, select a light blue. Then do the same again, 2 pixels away. You should have 1 pixel of space between the lines, and that's where the very point of the rhombus is. If you have something like the image below, you're good!
Merge the two line layers and then select the layer which has the logo. Determine which side is more cleaner. I chose the left side, the one I did first. Keep your zoom pretty far in, and select the blue square in tool tab once more. Then start on the very line marking the side you chose, and completely select that side, line and all. Then press Copy + C. This is what the selection up to the line looks like.
Now that you have your side copied. Create another new layer, and paste it. If the pasting has an offset for some reason. Try to deselect, or zoom back out. Once you have your side copied. Select the other side but instead of copying it, completely delete it. Now, on the layer with your copied side, go to the top and press Layer, then press Flip Horizontal. Delete the line layers, and check to see if everything worked. If the very point of the logo has 2 pixels instead of 1, hit the left or right arrow key depending on which side you pasted. Now here comes the last step: the font.
Merge the two sides of the logo and go over to the tool tab one last time. Select the gray T and create one new layer. On the top once again is where you customize everything. Font size, and fonts. It's pretty easy from there, and when your finished go back to Effects, Object Align, and Center Both. Merge the text and logo layer, and that's it! You're done.
I made a tutorial explaining how I make project banners not too long ago and I really liked coming out and showing how it's done, and I figured I should do the same for my logos. This will be split in two parts, as overtime I have formed two variations of the logo. A circle, of course, and then there's a diamond shape that when modified, looks almost like a police badge. I'll be showing how to do the circle this time, however do expect me to follow up with the diamond shape very soon. Anyway, let's get into what you'll need for this.
First of all, you will need some sort of paint / editing program. Photoshop or any paid editor would work PERFECTLY but if you can't afford those kinds of programs like me, MS Paint or paint.net (what I'm using) will suit you just fine. Since I'm using paint.net, this tutorial will take place in there. However if you don't use paint.net, you may find a work around. If you're using paint.net, you'll need a few plugins because paint.net in it's regular form just doesn't provide much to work with. Here's a list of the plugins I use.
Lastly, if you want some cool text to put in your logo (if you want any text that is), go to DaFont and pick a few. These are also helpful for banners.
Now that we've got everything installed, we can proceed to load up paint.net. You should be greeted with an 800 x 600 pixel white canvas. You COULD use this for your logo, but I recommend 512 x 512 these days because that's all you'll really need. You can make a 512 x 512 canvas by going to the top left
corner where it says "File", click it and then "New." It should popup a little tab and that's where you'll be able to change the file size. Now you'll notice that the canvas will start out white. We don't want the white, because that is not an empty background meaning if you tried making a logo you pretty much stuck it to the background and can't remove it.
So what you can do to get rid of the white background is go into the tools tab on your left, and in the top left corner of the box is a blue square, the selecting tool. Press that, and while holding left click, swipe the entire canvas until it's now fully blue. Now press Ctrl + X and that will get rid of the white, introducing you to a checkers background. This is what we want.
Now we can began making the logo. In the same tool tab from before, select the shapes tool which is the triangle, square, and circle icon on the very bottom. Select that and now you'll want to focus in on the top. Here is where you will select your shape. There are three elements you'll need to keep note of: shape, draw/fill mode, and brush size.
By pressing on the shape, you will be greeted with a little tab of all the shapes available. For a circle logo, select the circle. Now as for the draw / fill mode, you can determine whether or not you want a ring, a full circle, or a full circle with a ring (the ring using a secondary color). When I make circles, I usually use a ring but that's up to you to decide. Now lastly, brush size will determine how thick the circle will be. I usually keep it 10 at minimum and 15 at maximum, but this is again entirely up to you.
Now that you have your destined shape, let's talk about the color. On the right hand side, you should see a color wheel along with default colors. You may use these default colors, or press the "More > >" button for full customization. Once you choose your colors, we can officially begin the process of the logo. Start by holding click and dragging outward. You may also hold shift while doing this for full symmetry, which I recommend. Make the circle as big as you want, but don't go out the canvas.
Now that you have your circle, and hoping you have the plugins installed, go to the top once more and hit Effects, then Object Align, and lastly Center Both. And that will immediately centralize the circle. Now, if you want the logo to have a filling in on the inside, go to the tools tab once again, and this time press the magic wand. Now click in on the inside, and go to the color tab again, select black or another color that you want, and then hit backspace. And that will fill the inside of the circle.
Now you can add more rings if you want, or you can finish with some text. Go to the bottom right corner, where the layer tab is, and hit the blue square with the green plus sign. That will create a new layer. Now back over to the tool tab, and select the gray T, and now look at the top again. Here, you can customize your text with fonts, size, as well as the other usual effects such as bold, italics, underline, etc. I think this is a little self explanatory, just pick your color and experiment with the fonts you installed. When you're finished, you may go back into effects, then objects, then Center Both once more.
To finish off your circle logo, go back to the layer tab and press the two half squares with the big purple arrow facing down. And that will merge the layer. There you have it, your first logo. Cool, right? You may hit the big x in the top right corner, save the file as a png, and then that's it, you're done. Congrats!
If you want a background, you can always make a copy of the logo file, and then go back into the editor, press "File" in the top left corner, then "Open" then find your file. Now that you have it, make a new layer (the square with the green plus again) and then with that new layer, drag it down under the original layer. Then go into google, or whatever search engine you use, and find a background. When you find it, copy it and then paste it into the layer. If it asks about file size, just say keep the size. And if it's smaller, stretch it out with the select tool (the blue rectangle in the tools tab). If you want the logo to fit perfectly you may want to shrink it down a little with the same select tool, while holding shift to maintain symmetry.
And that's all there is to the circle logo really, I'll be making the diamond shape pretty soon so expect that. And while you're waiting, you may check out my tutorial for the banner. Thanks for reading!
I'm not gonna lie, the passion probably died a long time ago, as soon as I finished the original Golden Brine series. I wanted to do more, but it just was never there. I was pretty desperate to bring my imagination of these huge extreme creations to life, and I just wanted to push it all out. That caused conflicting information, and sometimes no information at all. It caused new concepts of mine to walk in and out of the door constantly, and that pissed me off. So when I said I was quitting, I kind of felt relieved but disappointed.
Believe me, I DID want to get stuff out but there was just no budging, so I chalked it up as something that I'll probably put aside for a little while. And now with writing out of the way, there's several questions you may be asking. Some of which I'll try to answer now.
Q: What will happen to your logo and your username?
A: I'll keep them for now. If I find a good enough username that everyone can settle with later down the line, I'll do such thing. As for the logo, I may keep it for the new name, but the reason why I have it now is to brand my stories (which I no longer make), as well as to put a creative spin on my pfp and username. If I can't find a good reason to move it, it'll probably become history but I'll reserve the files as a testament to who I originally came here as.
Q: Will you still create discussion / forum spoofs and Chrimbo Specials?
A: Actually, yes. I've stated that those kinds of works are me constantly goofing off, making characters say silly comments to each other and doing the weirdest of things, all the while actually being something enjoyable for you. And yes, 2020 Vacation-o is still planned for release. Expect that this December, and many more.
Q: Since you've quit writing, what will you do on the wiki now?
A: Pretty much everything I've been doing since day 1. I'll swim around the discussions, review some pastas, post unfunny memes, you know, typical yada-yada that happens around here.
Q: Is there anything you learned from your experience with writing?
A: Well, for one I learned the hobby isn't for me. But I also realize I should be more focused and more patient with everything and everyone around me, which hopefully is one of the things I'll work on in the near future.
Q: Will you still design project banners?
A: Why not? I may not have done much in writing, but I do pump out a good banner. Hopefully I can continue doing free commissions for those who want it, those aren't off the table. No Popstar792, I don't want money for my work.
Are there creepy pastas that actually happened in Minecraft? I’m looking for ones that are real
UCP is here. That means I will be on more moderating the threads
Edit: Nope UCP has yet to hit us
Hey, so you see that pretty spiffy looking logo in my profile picture? Well, I'm gonna break it to you: that's not actually Gen 9. That's Gen 9 BETA 1. When I made G9B1 (hey i like that formatting might use it now haha), I expected it to be a simple placeholder for what was to come. It lasted a lot longer than I thought, hence the confusion. The reason why it's still here now? I am still not sure where I am going to take 9. But the reason it's there is simply because it's a "demo" of the features I want to put into the official design. Expect to see Gen 9 as soon as possible. Believe me, I'll be leaking it to you on discord. A common habit of mine, I know.
Essentially r/unpopularopinion, but here.
I'll begin: I hate regular milk.
I'm lactose intolerant, so I don't often get my fill of "real" dairy products. But when I do, it's usually ice cream or cheese, and yogurt if I'm feeling in the mood. I like these foods a lot, but when it comes to milk itself, I cannot stand it. When I tried milk for the very first time, I immediately spat it out and almost vomited. Even I was kinda baffled.
I previously figured that milk was something magical, everyone seemed to chug glass after glass, so I figured why not give it a try. But upon trying it, I was completely disgusted and I'll probably never bring myself to try a cup again.

They were very convenient compared to discussions.
After about 2 years of discussion and complaint and drama, its finally happened, and its...
