I'm not sure where the line between "friend" and "acquaintance" is, so I just estimated about 7.

I prefer the first option, as I feel it takes the best of all of the others. It's one click, public, and subtle. The second one is clunky as you said, and if you can submit anonymous reviews of a user then you can go over their "attitude, language, and contribution" easily that way. You can respond to peoples' posts to say if you agree or disagree, so a rating system for that is unnecessary. The 5+1 scale is pretty similar to the current system, so I guess that would be the second-best in my opinion. But that's just my opinion and all that!

I play competitive Pokemon all the time, as it's really fun! Really, to have any chance at winning much, you kinda have to EV train, so yeah, I do that. But I prefer online simulators because it doesn't take as long. I do have some EV trained Poikemon on my Diamond and Platinum versions.

I have to say from personal experience age is almost irrelevant to whether someone should be on equal terms with somebody else. I've met countless children (around 13 or so) who absolutely blow people one-and-a-half times or even twice away when it comes to insight and maturity in conversation. Many adults, when their presumed superiority is challenged by a person much younger than themselves, simply tell the younger person to "stop talking back" or "know your place" rather than actually use logic or reasoning because an adult arguing with a child is considered embarrassing to the adult. However, though the adult usually would win an argument with a child, I've seen too many instances where the child simply can act like an adult more than the adult can.

I don't like the question posed in this poll, however, as "half one's age" is very different between people of different ages. The typical ten year old is not terribly more mature than a five year old, but a twenty year old is more often much more mature than a ten year old. However, as age increases, it becomes less of a factor in determining "equal terms" (I would like to disregard legal definitions and restrictions such as being allowed to drive or vote or whatever and focus solely on conversational ability, as of course adults have more rights than children regardless of maturity). My personal bias in this question is that I believe "equal terms" should be assumed in conversation if the conversation calls for it. If a student is asking his professor a question about a topic that the professor is knowledgeable about, then the two are obviously not on equal terms, but if a student is debating his professor about a topic that they are BOTH knowledgeable about, then equal terms needs to be assumed or else the debate means nothing. Why should an older person just assume that they are superior to a younger person just because of age?

I would guess that Pseudo created this poll in the context of this site, and Pseudo's specific age (23? Or is it 24? I believe it's 23, but it doesn't matter) makes all the difference in this poll. I've been around many precocious children before, and an especially mature 14 or 15 year old can easily converse with an average 28 or 30 year old. However, an especially mature 10-12 year old might not be able to converse with a young adult as well. Precocious children (I apologize for the redundancy), for whatever reason, really start to shine in their early teen years; enough to be on equal terms with a young adult. And since the brain really stops developing in the mid-twenties, age is really not that much of a big deal after then. For that reason, if a precocious 15 year old can get on equal terms with a 25 year old, they can probably do so with a 30 year old or higher.

Bottom line: People should argue with facts, opinions, and claims, not credentials. It should not matter how old a person is as long as their argument is logical, and the "know your place" mentality is a terrible thing. If an adult has to resort to arguing based on "you're a child, I'm an adult", then the child has basically demonstrated that he or she is mature enough (or even more mature) to converse with that adult. People shouldn't need to "earn" the right to converse with people above their age, and adults should welcome conversing with children provided the child can keep up. Of course, this site is full of exceptional children and adults which deviates from the norm, but either way, age shouldn't determine equal terms, maturity and knowledge should. (age will partially determine this, but not fully).

I would guess you should send them a cease and desist letter immediately, and since his other games looks stolen too, maybe contact a law firm. I really don't know what your options are, but it seems you have the right to see this taken down.

Congratulations on the blue, man! I've read some of your posts and it seems you worked really hard for it.

Just a note: would a Mac Mini be usable? It seems like a Mac Mini [LINK] would run OSX and only cost $699 instead of $999, so you could save a bit of money if you got a Mini instead.

I agree with Eleanor Rigby on this one: it seems really expensive to start doing and it would make more sense (at least to me) to acquire a steady source of income before deciding to spend a very large sum of money to develop apps which may or may not succeed. You're already pretty well known on gaming sites for MARDEK so people will really want to play your Flash games like Beast Signer, so I think it would be smarter to release BS or FHO or something before moving on to Apps. Your call, of course, I'm just speaking my thoughts.

Hmm...I am a teenager who knows nothing about App development! So listen to my seasoned words of wisdom, or something like that...!

I wonder if Raider would be good as an app game. I don't have an Android (which seems like what you would produce on), but it seems like that you would probably use that as your platform. I'm not sure if Miasmon would work well as an app, as from what I've seen (and it's not much that I've seen), simple games like platformers, "arcade" games, and less serious games do better on the App stores. Miasmon is a medium-length RPG, and would seem to do better on Flash or an actual game console (which I know is out of the question). Shorter levels and fast, simple gameplay is what makes Apps fun, and I say that statement with a little more certainty that I have said my previous statements with. And since you said you wanted to make Raider with "worlds" and "levels" and stuff with not a lot of story if I remember correctly, it seems to be a good choice for an App.

However, this post seems to we the definition of what you didn't want "teenager with limited experience...experiences as a consumer", but it would be cool if Fig Hunter moved onto the App Store. I liked Sameth's post, so good luck too!
