  1. Maybe these are related!!
  2. Mobile-first indexing enabled


    Dear Search Console user,


    We are updating one or more of your properties as part of the mobile-first initiative. This means that you may see more traffic in your logs for those properties from Googlebot Smartphone. You may also see that snippets in Google Search results are now generated from the mobile version of your content.


    The following properties are being updated (list limited to 20 properties):







    Background: Mobile-first indexing means that Googlebot will now use the mobile version of your site for indexing and ranking, to better help our (primarily mobile) users find what they're looking for. Google’s crawling, indexing, and ranking systems have historically used the desktop version of your site's content, which can cause issues for mobile searchers when the desktop version differs from the mobile version. Our analysis indicates that the mobile and desktop versions of your site are comparable.


    For more information:

    •Monitor your index coverage using the Index Status report.

    •Monitor your impressions, clicks, and site appearance using the Performance report.

    •If you have any additional questions, drop by our Webmaster forum for more help - mention message type [WNC-20058194] or our public events.

    Is Freedoom DEAD? 😱

    How can you call something truly "dead" if anyone could resurrect it at any moment? Everything about Freedoom will stay the same until someone is fed up with it and improves upon it.

    Every asset is completely free to use, by definition. Anybody can take all the work done up to this point and continue on, if they so chose.
  5. But was WoW more influential than, say, Everquest, or just more commercially successful? Pure MMORPGs mostly burned themselves out (largely because WoW steamrolled all challengers) and ultimately were not THAT lastingly influential, especially today when we see where trends have gone, and now the money is in action games that implement MMO elements as part of their service model. See, e.g., GTAV, which has sold an absurd 100 million copies on the strength of its GTA Online mode which implements a MMO-esque world replete with the microtransactions that are the real bread and butter of the industry today.
  6. When history looks back at the 2010s, the single most important video game of that decade will be Minecraft. I'm sure that's not the "best" game but it's certainly the most influential one. (2000s was GTA3 and 1990s was Doom, fwiw)

    How to make 3D bridges in vanilla?

    If that's the attitude you want to give to the Doomworld admin who WROTE that tutorial in 1998, then uh, have fun with that?

    Well for one thing that's the wrong page, you want https://www.doomworld.com/tutorials/fx8.php

    The worst part of editing in Vanilla

    I have no idea, but I assume the Quake template was cribbed from the Doom one, and I am positive the Doom one has always been about how long it took to create, not how long it took to build a BSP.

    You're mistaken.

    Image size limit?

    I pay for the storage and bandwidth and I don't feel like letting users upload infinite files. Sorry!

    Why is there no glitchless category?

    I hate when communities move to be Discord-centric. Now not only are you completely relying on some company that owns everything you post, but it's literally a "dark web" community that can't even be hyperlinked or spidered by search engines.

    Why is there no glitchless category?

    I used to think the same thing, and I hate to go into a "kids today" argument, but kids today are NOT going to put up with weird arcane bullshit about a 25 year old game when they can be playing Fortnite in 60 seconds instead. Hell people on this very forum complain that they don't even want to look at a wiki, much less learn the landscape of a community over the course of weeks or months.
  14. Sandy Petersen didn't know who Trent Reznor or Nine Inch Nails were in 1995, and he thought his coworkers talking about "hash" was about a mixture of chopped meat, potatoes and spices, but you think he intentionally named Map21 "Nirvana" because you start with a SSG sitting in front of you and he was making a weird and very abstract reference to Kurt Cobain committing suicide? Instead of drawing on his well of knowledge about religions and religious iconography? If anything this confirms that weird dumb theory was, in fact, weird and dumb.
