2020.08.26 02:49 UsersDoProgram Trouble Parsing HTML With Regex

So I've written some python code to get the date from a piece of HTML code and I'm having some unexpected issues.
Here is the HTML code,
 140 "A Favor for Julius"
Transcription: " Yuriusu no Tanomi Koto" (Japanese: ユリウスの頼み事) August 25, 2020 (2020-08-25)
I'm trying to the date within the code, August 25, 2020, so I built a regex with an online website for testing and matching strings using regular expressions.
Here is the regex I made, (JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilMayJuneJulyAugustSeptemberOctoberNovemberDecember) \d{1,2}, \d{4} this correctly matches any date within the HTML code on the site, but when I run python code I come across some issues.
Here is my attempt to find a match,
>>> import re >>> data = """ 140"A Favor for Julius"
Transcription: "Yuriusu no Tanomi Koto"(Japanese: ユリウスの頼み事)August 25, 2020 (2020-08-25)— """ >>> exp = r"(JanuaryFebruaryMarchAprilMayJuneJulyAugustSeptemberOctoberNovemberDecember) \d{1,2}, \d{4}" >>> re.findall(exp,data) ['August'] >>> re.fullmatch(exp,data) >>> re.match(exp,data) >>> type(re.match(exp,data)) >>> type(re.fullmatch(exp,data)) >>>
Why is the findall returning only August and not August 25, 2020, and why are both the results of fullmatch and match none? If the regular expression worked on the site here why isn't it working in Python?

Note: Sunday's SNHD case report was not uploaded and the dashboard was down majority of the day (checked until 8pm). All case reports and dashboard is back up and running today.
Expect weekend report lag. "Daily case counts reflect newly reported cases and may represent cases that were tested in the preceding days, which could significantly impact the count on days when a relatively large number of laboratory reports arrive in one day." SNHD confirmed they are not counting COVID-19 antibody positives into their COVID-19 positive case counts.
Majority of information is pulled from Southern Nevada Health District's COVID-19 dashboard and historical reports.
Our positives have slowed down, our recovery rate continues to rise (85+% range), but our hospitalizations are increasing. Protect our vulnerable and continue to practice good hygiene habits, including wearing a mask to prevent asymptomatic spread as mandated by Governor Sisolak (onus is on businesses, which we want to keep open, but Metro will not enforce it; OSHA is responsible for mask enforcement by fining the business). To report a non-compliant business through the state, call (702) 486-9020 or (775) 688-3700.
Doctors are doing convalescent plasma therapy treatments and are seeking plasma donors to help those in need. One plasma donation can help five patients. Blood donors can get the antibodies testing done for free.
FDA states 144 trials of therapeutics are underway to treat COVID-19. 457 more are in planning stages. None have been approved. Remdesivir and Dexamethaaone are FDA approved for emergency base use.
Nevada was approved for the 24-hour test procedure. FDA has approved a 30-minute and a 5-minute testing procedures. UNLV provides the main COVID-19 testing services. The first at-home testing kit was FDA approved on 5/15.
Testing sites require an appointment; some may need to be scheduled by your primary care physician or another authorized provider.
City Serve coordinates testing sites throughout the valley. Testing is only on Saturdays. Schedule a no-cost test here: https://cityservelv.org/
The antibodies test was approved by the FDA a month ago. UMC, E7 Health and local laboratories are able to conduct antibodies testing. Cost is normally $149+, but your insurance may reimburse you for the test. Check your coverage first. Vitalant/Universal Blood Services will do a free antibody test for any eligible donors.
UMC is able to process 4,000 tests per day. It is encouraged for anyone to be tested. Symptoms are no longer required. Appointment is required.
UMC's testing sites are inside Thomas & Mack Center and Cashman Field Center. They can do 1,200 tests per day, Tues-Sat 8am to 4pm. No symptoms, insurance, or citizenship required for testing. Must schedule an appointment online through UMC's website (www.umcsn.com). A staff member will contact you back to schedule your appointment. According to their reps, there is no limit how often you can get tested. Sites are walk-in, appointment or walk-up. Both sites now use the self-nasal swab test kits.
UMC updates COVID-19 test guidelines:
New guidelines are to save test kits for those exhibiting symptoms.
See all testing locations on the SNHD website.
Three months ago, the first vaccine was tested. More than 160 vaccine prototypes are being tested. Clinical trials of the vaccine were administered two months ago. Phase 1 & 2 of trial vaccines have completed with positive antibody results. Phase 3 clinical trials started with 30k volunteers; large test size of 3k vaccine test trials in the UK. Africa started their vaccine trials last month. Multiple sources stating to expect an FDA approved vaccine by end of the year.
Of the 100+ vaccines submitted, 22 have made the cut to go through testing and final FDA approval phases (5/15 briefing). The front runner vaccine is conducting human trails (Phase 3 aka final stage), completion date in September. AstraZeneca is prepared to produce 2 billion doses once the vaccine is FDA approved.
Government is working with four vaccine manufacturers who are in the final phases of vaccine trials, all prepared for massive vaccine output once FDA approval is given (7/31). Two of the four have in the final review phases with FDA (8/14).
Phase 3 vaccine trials for Vegas has started. Volunteers can call 702-893-8968. Must be 18+. Administered by the Wake Clinical Research Center of Nevada. Source.
Remain mindful to give our medical community the ability to focus on those in need of their expertise to survive and combat the virus.

2020.08.20 07:24 meepmeep222 Japan has an entire online ladder mode that we don't have with leaderboards and everything?

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ef1kNhYXoAInidO?format=png&name=900x900
EDIT: As clarified by u/newlilli:
This is not a permanent game-mode. Its a 2-hour qualifier event for an online tournament by nintendo that happens once in a while.
It's basically the same thing as the NA Online Opens that we get a few times a year, but theirs is integrated directly into the game instead of run through the third party site Battlefly. Still very interesting though!
More info here: https://twitter.com/EmJay10_/status/1296302607343013888
japan has a whole game mode in ultimate that we don't have and i see NOBODY talking about it ever. they have these qualifiers where you play a certain ruleset and climb a leaderboard, top 10 advance to the finals.
currently the top 4 are shuton, tea, T, Hero (top JP online player) and they ALL stream this stuff on youtube. JP smash is huge on youtube.
i'm not sure what happens at the finals and what the prize is if any. 9B also commentates the finals
Smash's Japanese site talking about it: https://www.smashbros.com/ja_JP/tournament/index.html
The leaderboard itself:: https://www.smashbros.com/ja_JP/tournament/online_challenge03/result.html
Shuton streaming himself playing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQP8VB2HQOQ
EDIT: According to this tweet, the ladder might be a qualifier for a tournament sponsored by a Japanese ad agency, which explains why it's Japan-only. But it's still bizarre to have an entire mode we don't have.
EDIT: Based on the dates of past events shown on the official Smash JP site, it appears they've had this mode since at least FEBRUARY?? You can check the rules of the 2/1/2020 event and they say "To participate in the tournament, start the game during the period and proceed to "Online" -> "Super Melee" -> "Official tournament qualifying" -> "Join". ", which is the same as the current event, so the mode definitely existed back then.

2020.07.28 18:06 throwaway-0410 A Comprehensive Timeline of EvaX

I've been seeing a lot of posts asking for this. To the best of my ability I'll list what I've found with evidence. I'm addressing Alex Mahan as "EvaX" instead of "YanDev" because I don't think it's very accurate to call him a developer.
Important note: I don't condone the harassment of Alex Mahan. While it is fine to be outraged over his behavior, harassment of any kind is not encouraged. The purpose of this post is to bring to light the morally inept behaviors that have been expressed throughout the years, not to create reasons to harass Mahan.
About CannotGoogleMe: There is now proof beyond reasonable doubt (99%) that confirms CannotGoogleMe is EvaX. Subject is under 2015.
Lastly, if I'm missing any information or if someone would like to make a better timeline, feel free to take from this post or build off of it- you can copy-paste! The goal is to make a comprehensive list to get the facts straight so that everyone is better informed.
The notes about his age is to prevent any arguments about his age ("he was only a teen when he wrote that!"), and to give a better example of... is this a good reflection of how an ___ aged man should behave? Also provided as a DEFENSE for EvaX himself (as seen in "ideation of killing his parents) as he is speculated to only be 16.
(Please comment any info/evidence I'm missing instead of messaging me)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Under Construction /Ambiguous dates / Misc.
Ideation of killing his parents (2000's- unknown date)
EvaX has been known to be a frequenter of sites like Gaia and 4chan. He posted about wanting to kill his parents; someone advised him to move out but he didn't want to as he was a dependent. While this is worrisome behavior, the speculated time of the post places EvaX to be in his late teens (most likely 16?), so it's not quite relevant to his behavior now besides building a background of repeated behavior and an unstable/ dangerous mindset.
Abusing Stream Watchers
Called a person an a*tistic little b*tch in a stream. Unfortunately it was deleted and I cannot find any evidence of it (if found I'll put it here), but this was also part of the stream that was captured by a kiwi before being deleted (speculated to have occurred on 2009 or 2015, based on the dates, making EvaX ~21 or 27).
Master Post of stolen assets
Link
Unprofessional Interactions Compilation
Link
Mulberry
YanSim's main artist has some allegations against her for tracing art. Not a callout for her, just that it means there are stolen images/ traced art in the game, and I'm not sure if people want to support that.
Spaghetti Code
A very long video that does a good job in covering the code. The video is segmented if you wish to look for a specific subject, and is also in the description.
Loserz Message Board
2006-2007 (~18-19 y/o)
EvaX was part of the Loserz Message Board (Loserz webcomic forum) and has made some questionable posts and comments about women and general incel thoughts. Most of his activity were in 2006-2007 (18-19 y/o), so hold these against him with consideration of his age.
Playing a Porn Game with an Underaged Character
2006 (~18 y/o)
EvaX frequented a forum to guide him on a game called Rapelay, a pornographic game centered around sexually assaulting a mother and her two daughters, one of whom is underaged. While the forum has no pictures, click at your own risk due to the nature of the game.
Alleged Pastebin of EvaX addressing Streaming Abuse
EvaX has/had a private website where he streamed and interacted with people, and this is apparently a response to EvaX abusing mod powers (banning, censorship, etc.)

Volunteer Mistreatment
Many volunteers have stopped working with EvaX after harsh treatment or problematic behavior. Will be updated with more information

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2005-2012 (17- 24 y/o; "Life of a Sex Slave" was written in 2009, making him ~21 y/o).
Disturbing Fanfictions
EvaX wrote many stories, some about rape and human trafficking (sex slaves). Read at your own risk. In one of the stories, a character was 10 years old when she first experienced rape (and it goes on until her late teens).
2006 (~18 y/o; site lists as 20 but it's either wrong or EvaX forgot to update copyright)-
Name Origin / Confirmation
EvaXephon's name is a combination of Alex Mahan's favorite animes, NGE ("Eva" coming from Evangelion) and RahXephon (Xephon). EvaX has a fanmade site to compare these two animes and confirms that they are the origin of his username.
Rage tendencies
In a conversation in a forum post, EvaX mentions "rage" tendencies and that he has been forbidden from screaming to relieve stress. He mentions hitting objects and more screaming. There are more incel posts at this time.
2008 (~20 y/o)-
Incel / misogynistic Gaia Posts
EvaX confirms he is NotDepressedAnymore (the UN for most of these posts).
EvaX posts an "incel" post on Gaia where he blames his physical appearance for the lack of attention from girls ("I'm a nice friendly guy and I just want people to give me a chance [...] I guess my face makes me look like a creepy, weird guy, so no one wants to know me or be around me"). Here's a similar post. And another one. Aand another one. Aaaaaaaaand another one.
Branching off of this, EvaX has sexualized women and "creep'd" on them. In one post, he mentions staring at a girl's breasts and wonders if his creepy behavior made her cover up.
2009 (~21 y/o)
Sisefs- soliciting nudes and engaging in online sex with a minor
In a post from the victim herself, she confirms that she was in a relationship with EvaX, with EvaX KNOWING she was 14. He justified this relationship by saying that since he was homeschooled, he missed out on dating in high school. She was in MIDDLE SCHOOL.
He asked her for nudes, sexted over skype, and masturbated to her on webcam.
Here's a chatlog with a different girl; use control-f to find "sex". It's predatory. Sisefs is mentioned in the chatlog, but EvaX lies about his experience with her and her character (most importantly, that she was a minor):
" She did a bunch of bad stuff, like...she lied about her age, and she started a website to give people a place to say bad things about me, and her parents took away her Internet privileges because she was taking nude pictures of herself and sending them out to people. She sent me her nude pictures (and she sent them to like 100 other people too) and somehow, this means "EvaXephon requests child porn from minors". I deleted all of her photos as soon as I discovered that she had been lying about her age the whole time. She was not a good person at all, and I am very glad that I don't know her anymore.""
He also wrote this in context of his experience with Sisefs in 2015 (~27 y/o).
He later makes an tumblr post addressing Sisefs in 2015 (~27 y/o) and general pedophilia/ sisefs situation in 2017 (~29 y/o).
Tumblr user Wunkolo talked to EvaX about this and this was part of his response in an email.

2011-2014 (~23-26 y/o)-
"VideoGameBabes" Twitter
EvaX is confirmed to be the owner of the twitter account "VideoGameBabes". The account is centered around writing about... hot video game "babes", and while that in itself is kinda problematic, he goes beyond that by making a pedophilic comment- "Japan has produced yet another game about fondling underage anime girls. All praise to glorious Japan!"

2014 (~26 y/o)-
Luna Scythe / Skullgirl Programmer Rant
EvaX worked on a hack-and-slash called Lunar Scythe, and he posted it to a skullgirls forum. There has been criticisms from people, as the main character looks like a generic edgy girl (and bears similarity to Ruby?) and has an overly "sexy" vibe. The description of the game literally says
" At the beginning of the game, Luna dies. As Luna’s spirit looks down at her own body, she feels nothing but apathy. She didn’t want to live in a world filled with human filth*, anyway.* "
EvaX showed his game to Mike Z., the lead programmer of Skullgirls. Here's the pastebin transcript of when Eva X and Mike Z had a conversation about the game. He gave EvaX criticism and EvaX blew up in a later post.This is why some people have called Yandere Simulator a "Spite Game" in response to YS fans calling Love Letter the same.
Senpai's Little Sister Controversy
EvaX originally wrote Senpai's sister to be cute and innocent, but wanted to make her "lewd/ jailbaity". This is problematic because Hanako is underage. His defense was that it would make people feel less guilty about killing her.
He later states that Hanako and Senpai are only 3 months apart (same parents) when that is biologically impossible. Also controversial due to incest implications- however, this is a common trope in anime.
Unfortunately, a lot of the posts/ evidence are in yandere_simulator and that is currently in lockdown (and most likely deleted). I'll update if given pictures.

2015 (~27 y/o)-
Addressing suggestions to remove panty shots
I think the post speaks for itself. EvaX thinks people are too sensitive when they tell him to remove a feature in the game that is literally creeping on underage girls, and he wants to implement rape into a game about murdering minors?
Admits he has no formal training
The reason why his code is spaghetti is because he learned while messing around in free programs and from his experience at a company.
Existence of Sex Doll ( "Mai Waifu" character namesake )
CannotGoogleMe is confirmed to be EvaX. Controversial as it is heavily implied that EvaX has bought the doll using Patreon money, as well as naming a class 1-1 (freshman) underage character after his sex doll, placing her at around age 14-15. They have similarities, such as pink hair (which was inspired by a Momoka cosplayer EvaX saw). Forum posts start at 2012, but doll posts begin at 2015.
Click links with caution. First is the "Mai Waifu" and gets close to nudity but has spoiler tags, while the "Samus" one is less risque.

2016 (~28 y/o)-
Censorship on Yandere Simulator Wiki
While EvaX is the "dev", he doesn't have the right to remove posts on a fan-run wikia. He barged into the wiki and started removing posts and comments and got banned, then started a flame war with another user. They told him "you aren't above the rules" and EvaX starts attacking his personality and credibility (ad hominem fallacy).
Ayano in Crush Crush (A Porn Version exists)
Crush Crush is an idle dating sim, and EvaX agreed to let Ayano be made into a dateable character. It is partnered with Nutaku (a well-known adult company) and has a NSFW version (link to twitter, not the game. Safe to click). The 18+ version has a still image of the main character (a white blob) doing it with any of the dateable characters, Ayano included.
Ayano is 18* (Ayano previously was listed to be around 17, but has since been boosted to be 18). There is a classic tactic for people who draw/make/etc. porn to say that all characters depicted are 18+, even if specified otherwise. This seems like a similar case.
Sex License
In a conversation with someone EvaX addresses as "N", he talks about an idea to bypass the age of consent. EvaX did not condone "N" demonizing pedophiles, and defended his idea for a sex license- a test to see if an underage individual is ready for sex (his argument being that people have different maturities regardless of age).
" Intent on forcing me to answer a question that would allow her to brand me as a pedophile, she demanded to know if I would permit a 14-year-old to have sex with a grown man if the 14-year-old had passed the “sex license test” that I had proposed.
Well, obviously, if there’s a test that objectively proves that a person is ready for sex, and a person passes that test, then that person is objectively ready for sex. This is simple logic, but “N” lacked the mental capacity to figure this out for herself."

2016-2017 (~28-29 y/o)-
Nemesis Origin / Stolen concept
Nemesis was based off this art as stated by EvaX himself. To EvaX's credit, he did change Nemesis's hairstyle with the artist's approval, albeit the character design is still very, very similar. (In Mission Mode, it is revealed that Nemesis is Hanako from the Mission Mode alternate timeline, meaning she is underage).

2017 (~29 y/o)-
Stolen Art Used in a Video
EvaX stole multiple fanart from teenagers across some art platforms (Deviantart, tumblr, etc.), blacked them out, and used them to tease new characters. A user has made a very descriptive post about this on the wikia.
Some of these characters are from licensed video games and anime (Elsword and Durarara), so I'm concerned about the legality of using a different company's character to promote your own, even if it's through STOLEN fanart.

2018 (~30 y/o)-
Calls Patreon his Tip Jar
EvaX says the patreon is his tip jar, not the budget for the game. He SOMETIMES compensates volunteers with money from it, however. This is noteworthy as most people assume that the money they're giving him are to support the game, not buy an extra switch or a sex doll (allegedly).

2019 (~31 y/o)-
Announces crossover with Project QT (Porn Game)
Ayano is in the crossover, and EvaX defends this choice by saying "YanSim was never intended for children; my audience is mostly adults". Click the first link at your own risk. This is problematic because Ayano is underaged* (even if EvaX says "ALL CHARACTERS ARE 18 EVEN IF SPECIFIED OTHERWISE HURR DURR").

2020 (~32 y/o)-
Discord Speedrun Ban Arc
EvaX made a post addressing what happened to him in 2020, with the "Discord Speedrun Ban Arc" being the first. He states that this started on Jan 20, 2020, and on the same day he posts a tweet about suicidal ideation. Not so much as a demerit to him, but just a reflection of how he handles stressful situations and his poor state of mind. (Important note: even if you think EvaX is a terrible person, harassment is not okay).
Announces crossover with BITC (Porn Game)
Ayano and Nemesis are in the crossover. EvaX just makes a simple post announcing it. Same underage problem applies (as aforementioned, Nemesis is Hanako from another timeline, making her underaged, while Ayano had her age changed to "18").
Intimidating rival games and threatening suicide to the Dev of Love Letter
To the developer of WMN (telling him to take down the game and lie to the fanbase)
and to the developer of Love Letter (suicide threat)
Puts discord server and subreddit on lockdown; censorship
No description needed.

2020.05.27 18:57 siegeisluv College Football Revamped - A Complete Modding Guide

What is College Football Revamped (CFBR)?

After seeing some hints of people finally figuring out how to extract textures from NCAA 14, I went and figured out some additional steps and, with the help of some great people, created the NCAA 14 modding community now known as CFBR. We're currently working on updating all teams' fields, uniforms, and more to be up to date. We're even working on updating the game's record books and dates so dynasties start in 2020 rather than 2013. We're also diligently working to try and find a way to add the CFP, but this will take a lot of time and searching (if it's even possible that is). And yes, this mod does indeed work on both console and PC.
I also want to add that while this whole process may seem confusing at first, know that the process of applying mods that we release will be extremely easy (about three clicks) and that this is extremely accessible. It may seem foreign but that is only because prior to making my tutorial video two weeks ago, there were maybe 3-4 people that really knew this was even possible
Here's a quick preview album of some early mods we have worked on. Sorry for the watermarks but we've had some people try to pass off our content as their own already and want to prevent that. We're just a bunch of volunteers who do this for free because we enjoy the game and college football, so we figure we should at least get credit for our work.
The best places to get in touch with us are:

How Do I Get Started Modding?

1) You need a copy of the game

You need either an XBOX 360 or PS3 copy of the game. You need to have the game files dumped. Here is a guide for getting PS3 game files. Here is a guide for getting XBOX game files. If you choose to download the game online (I understand people are price gouging right now), then that is your choice, but know that for legal reasons we obviously can't endorse or help you with this since it is piracy. We share user created content, NOT complete original game files. I highly recommend at least seeing if you can borrow a copy from someone to create a rip first. Once you create a disc backup, you do not need the game disc in your console ever again.

2) You need QuickBMS

QuickBMS is an open-source program developed by Luigi Auriemma. Without him and his scripts, this would probably not be possible. He has been super helpful throughout all of this, so if you ever visit his website or see him on twitter, feel free to thank him for his contribution. The QuickBMS package comes with a batch file called "reimport.bat". That is the program you will be running to apply mods (do not delete the QuickBMS executable though, as the reimport program needs QuickBMS to function). Download QuickBMS directly from Luigi's website below:

3) You need one of the following devices/platforms to play the game on

  1. A PS3 - You can play these mods on a real PS3, you just need something that allows you to play game backups, such as HEN. Here's a great guide on how to do that. The process takes about 30 minutes and you just need a USB drive. It is completely safe. It also works on any PS3 model running the latest firmware. If you need help with doing any of this, ask for help over on /ps3homebrew
  2. An XBOX 360 - You can play these mods on a real XBOX 360, similarly to PS3, you just need something that allows you to play game backups. This usually means an RGH, JTAG or XKEY mod. These are a bit more involved than installing HEN on a PS3, but if they're over your head, you can buy a pre-modded console or send it to a service and have someone mod it for you. It is possible that a softmod for XBOX 360 comes out in the future. In that case, modding an XBOX will be as easy as a PS3. We just don't know if/when that will happen since it's out of our control. If you need any help with any of this, ask for help over on /360hacks
  3. RPCS3 PS3 Emulator - This is the best way to play in my opinion. You can play at 4K 60 FPS with whatever controller you like. The only caveat is that you need a modern CPU to run it (I recommend a Ryzen 3600 or above, and before I get a ton of questions, most laptop CPUs are too underpowered for RPCS3). The game is fully playable and looks beautiful on RPCS3, plus all animations, replays and cutscenes run at 60 FPS vs the 30 they are limited to on console.
  4. Xenia XBOX 360 Emulator - Sadly the game is not playable completely on the emulator yet, as gameplay still looks like this. However you can still run a dynasty by simming if that's your thing, or just want to see the novelty of it run on your PC. While Xenia will never run on complete potato computers, it should be easier to run than RPCS3. And no, I do not know when the game will be playable on Xenia. If you want to see it playable on Xenia sooner, feel free to support them on Patreon (same with RPCS3). Both teams are amazing and underfunded sadly.

4) See link at the bottom of this post for installation instructions

###4) You need to download these two scripts 1. BGFA.txt - This script will soon become obsolete, but until we finish re-mapping out every file in the game, you still need this. For now, you will be using this script most of the time until. I'll delete this from the post when this changes. 2. CFBR.bms - This will be the main script once we finish remapping out the tens of thousands of files in the game. These scripts were written by Luigi (he goes by Aluigi on his forum) and a member named Acewell. Without them, again, none of this would be possible.
###5) You need the actual mod downloads! In the table at the bottom of this post, you will find our PS3 (soon to be joined by XBOX, once we finish packing them) mod downloads. These are all packed up neatly (just unzip with 7zip, everyone should have 7zip installed on their computer) so they are easy as possible for you to apply. Each mod pack has a PDF with specific instructions that are very easy to follow. The PDF will look something like this. Don't worry, it will all make sense once you get it set up, and if you have any issues or questions, we have our help channel in Discord, or if you want feel free to tweet at us. I also personally lurk on this sub a bit so I'll answer whatever questions I see. I'll try to keep the mods as up to date as possible on this post, but they will almost always be posted on Discord and Twitter first.

What if I Want to Make My Own Mods/Teambuilder Team?

One of the most alluring parts of being able to mod NCAA 14 is not only updating existing college uniforms, but bringing a new and improved Teambuilder functionality to the game. We can completely edit and replace every team logo, uniform, glove, team colors, name and more. We have yet to find or decipher audio files for actual team names, but hopefully we find them soon. Remember this project is still in its infancy. We can also edit high school teams to be real high schools, and much more. No more sticking to ugly premade templates for Teambuilder team fields and jerseys!
Anyway, if you want to mod and edit textures and some other game files yourself, you're going to need a few extra tools. I want to make this very clear: IF YOU JUST WANT TO USE OUR MOD RELEASES WITHOUT MAKING YOUR OWN, YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO ANY OF THIS. SIMPLY READ THE SECTION ABOVE AND SKIP TO THE TABLE DOWN AT THE BOTTOM.

1) You need a photo editor

Obvious recommendations here are Photoshop and Gimp (free and open-source). You'll need a plugin for either program that will allow you to view, edit and save DDS textures. For Photoshop I personally use NVIDIA Texture Tools. For Gimp, just do some basic googling and I'm sure you'll find something that works, we have plenty of contributors who use Gimp instead of Photoshop.

2) Some additional scripts

Here are the additional scripts you will need for modding.

3) Watch this tutorial video

This is a quick video I made explaining how to edit and import your own textures individually. I apologize for the shitty audio, I had never recorded audio before and I was sick at the time so my voice is extremely hard to hear. Wear headphones if you have them. I am going to be making better, clearer video tutorials in the future on how to get chrome helmets, matte helmets, change facemask colors, move number number positioning on helmets and jerseys, and much more. I just need some time to make sure our main project of updating every school is rolling and then I'll make some better tutorials that are more specific and clear. Again, if you have any questions, ask us for help on any of our social platforms.

4) XBOX USERS ONLY: You need a program called Noesis and a special plugin for it

I don't know much about Noesis, but this program with this specific version of the XPR plugin is needed to mod the game on XBOX. Instead of running the "toDDS" and "DDStoBlank" scripts like I do in my video, you will simply open the XPR files in Noessis and export them as DDS using Noesis. Once you are done editing them, simply change the file extension from DDS back to XPR and reimport them as usual. If this is confusing, just let me know. I was just able to get this working today, so this method is very new but finally enables texture editing on XBOX versions of the game.

Do You Accept Donations?

No, we do not. We do make this mod and started this community because we are college football fans and believe that every college football fan should be able to have a fun, updated, custom experience. The only time we might ever accept any kind of donation is in the event that we need to pay someone to help with something like extracting 3D models (possible but inexplicably difficult currently) or something along those lines, but that would never be for profit and would be an absolute last resort. We just want everyone to be able to enjoy these mods and maybe get some recognition in return (that is why we had to watermark our photos in the album above, we have already had some people try to post our content as their own original work without any kind of accreditation).
We're all in this NCAA Football game experience together. The generic games that are out feel... generic. Even if EA does make a college football game in the future (extremely unlikely without any kind of players union at this point), it will likely be a full ultimate team game with some afterthought dynasty. Hopefully this is the ultimate NCAA Football experience you've been looking for.

FAQ

Q: Can you add the CFP to dynasty?
A: We're Currently looking for the files that control schedule logic so we can automate the process. This is one of our top goals for this mod. At
Q: Can you add X uniform to the game?
A: Probably, we're focusing on updating main jerseys and some alternates right now, but of course we'll look at requests. Just understand that again we're a small volunteer team, so please have some patience. Of course we want to add your favorite uni into the game.
Q: When will this be done?
A: I don't know. See prior response. We are releasing mods as we finish them though, so it's not like we're going to string you along forever and never release anything. We try to give everyone updates as often as possible. We're barely a week and a half in and we've made incredible progress.
Q: Can I help in any way?
A: Of course! This is a community project. I have only met every contributor within the last week and a half. We can always use some extra help. We specifically need some people who can help with 3D models (extracting them from geometry using Hex2Obj and editing them), people who can help identify audio files within the game (we know they're there, just not the file format), people who can help with video file formats, people who can help find specific fonts used by schools, and probably more. Also, if you know anyone or have contact with anyone who worked on this game, please let us know! This is a community made mod. Everyone and anyone is welcome to help.

Dear Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Members and Friends,
At this point we are hopeful that we can still hold the 74th annual RMMLA Convention October 8-10, 2020 in Boulder, Colorado as planned, and we are continuing to make preparations for it.
Reminder: The deadline for the Call for Papers for the 2020 Convention in Boulder, Colorado is tomorrow, March 31, 2020. You’ll find it posted on the website. We are not extending the call for all sessions since many of the sessions have already been filled.
Session chairs who would like to extend the deadline of individual sessions to allow more participants to propose abstracts may request extensions until April 30. On the CFP, you’ll find that some sessions have already been extended.
Session chairs who have already selected papers for their sessions should post their sessions now for the convention program and notify their panelists that their papers have been accepted. Panelists must pay Membership Dues and Convention Registration in order to appear on the program. Our “Early Bird” lowest cost Convention Registration is in effect through April.
Includes program, Thursday night reception, and Friday keynote/luncheon. - Faculty, Emeriti Faculty, Independent Scholars = $85 - Students Only = $65
Planning ahead: If you should decide not to attend the convention in October, for whatever reason, we remind you that we always allow members to have a refund of convention registration fees minus a $ 25 service fee if they send in a written request prior to Sept 1. We do not reimburse membership fees since members have other online membership privileges all year, including electronic access to our journal, the Rocky Mountain Review of Language and Literature, ability to submit articles and book reviews to the journal, eligibility for awards, and other benefits that are in addition to convention attendance.
We reserve the right to cancel the convention at a future date to safeguard the health of our members and to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. If we decide to cancel or reschedule the convention, there will be a future announcement about how refunds of convention registration and re-acceptance of already confirmed proposals will be handled.
Take good care of yourself, stay well, and thank you for your continued commitment to Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association,
Joy Landeira

2020.03.13 21:37 Walter_Whitey Managing Office 365 installs / updates / etc in a large global org. advice needed

Long post, appreciate if you make it through lol..
I recently took over SCCM for a global org. We have around 90 sites around the globe, some with horrible WAN links..
The person I took over for, handled Office deployments / patching a little, different, then most..
There are currently (2) Packages setup in SCCM.
Under each package are numerous programs:
Each month, we cycle between the two packages.. So for example, this month I will run setup.exe /download download.xml with the xml looking as follows:
                            
I run that for both 32 and 64 bit to download the install files.. I will combine the files and then copy them to the source content directory of the Package that isn't currently in production..
I will then distribute the new version to all the DPs.. I change the deployment dates for the deployments we have out.. We have deployments for all the programs listed above..
The programs run the setup off a DFS share (which is pointing to each location's DP).. So they don't download the installs locally..
When we are ready to toggle which Package (Office 365 SA1 or SA2) is prodcution, we change the following GPO settings so clients will update their Office upon launch..
Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Office 2016 (Machine)/Updates
So that is how we push out new version of 365.. For Updates, we just push out the Security updates that come down from the catalog (IE: Security Update for Microsoft Excel 2016 (KB4484256) 32-Bit Edition)
So, this process seems crazy to me.. However, I'm totally new to managing O365 in an environment like this, so for now, I will continue to do it this convoluted way since its working for now..
Can anyone give me some recommendations on how to handle this going forward please?
Thank you so much.

8 Wordpress Tips and Tricks for Beginners practices to make your websites by Subraa Freelance Wordpress Website Designer in Singapore
A new yr means a brand new opportunity to discover WordPress suggestions and fine practices to make your fine web sites yet! Whether it’s taking the time to carry out easy plugin updates or planning a blog redecorate across the Gutenberg editor, there are pretty some ways you may focus your efforts to construct your pleasant WordPress websites in 2020. Professional freelance wordpress website designer to design your business website is more effective.

Web Designer

1. Always make website updates in a check environment

This first tip earned the number one spot on my list for a very important cause: You ought to maintain it in thoughts for the whole lot else we’re going to talk approximately. When you make adjustments without delay on your stay website online, you run the chance of something causing your web page to crash. And in case your web page is tied in your business, downtime is important to avoid in any respect times, as that could suggest a loss in sales.
To remove this unnecessary danger, you may use a take a look at the environment to replace your WordPress website. For short fixes, a staging website online would work properly. If you’re testing capability or a trendy website design, I recommend a nearby environment. If you haven’t worked with a take a look at surroundings before, Local is a loose app that’ll assist you get started in no time.

2. Get to realize the Gutenberg editor (WordPress 5.0)

WordPress 5.zero became released at the quit of 2018, which brought the Gutenberg editor. Even if you’re making plans to use the Classic Editor Plugin for a whilst (which will be supported until December 31st, 2021), it’s well worth getting to know our new buddy Gutenberg this yr.
I endorse putting in a nearby WordPress web page going for walks version 5.0, so that you can safely experiment with the new editor without any hazard on your real website.If you’re a content material creator, strive creating a new publish with Gutenberg so that you can see the way it feels to use blocks. You may also get some new ideas for formatting future articles!
If you’re a developer, you can import a copy of your live website into your local surroundings, and then replace WordPress 5.zero to do a little troubleshooting. This will let you see how your website’s present content reacts to Gutenberg, so that you can position a plan in the area to update the stay website designing.
3. Update your subject matters and plugins
This WordPress tip is nothing new, however it’s so crucial that it’s worth including in any best exercise list! Now’s an appropriate time to audit your issues and plugins to make certain they’re up to date and walking like they should be.
While it is able to feel tedious to run through all the websites you control simply to update these things, it’s incredibly essential for both website velocity and security. Outdated versions may additionally have vulnerabilities that placed the website online at threat, and consider how much greater time it’s going to take to fix a site with malware.

4. Make certain your web sites are mobile-friendly

This best practice also isn’t new, however it remains incredibly vital: Your website desires to be fully responsive and mobile-friendly. If you’re the use of nicely-maintained WordPress issues and plugins that are up to date (which, in keeping with the final tip, you have to be!), there’s a decent hazard your website online routinely performs quite nicely on smaller screens.
If you’re jogging a custom website online design, however, you would possibly should assume a little greater intentionally about ensuring your site is mobile-friendly. And again, in case you perceive any modifications you need to make, check them in a nearby surroundings or staging website online first. Otherwise website traffic would possibly stumble across a pretty weird revel in on your web site at the same time as you’re within the center of updates!

5. Add SSL certificate to each web page

There became a factor in time wherein SSL certificates were best considered important for certain varieties of websites, like eCommerce stores or online bank portals that were dealing with sensitive purchaser statistics. Today, however, having an SSL certificate to your web site is considered a satisfactory practice, even if you’re just constructing a personal blog.
Google has even started out flagging web sites without an SSL certificate as “now not secure,” which is definitely not something you need showing up in your website.
If you don’t have an SSL certificate installed, start with your web hosting provider. Many will genuinely offer SSL certificates (a commonplace gain of controlled WordPress hosts). Flywheel offers Simple SSL, a free certificate powered by using Let’s Encrypt, for every site. This manual to SSL will assist you learn more.

6. Find your favorite tools

This tip is all approximately helping you have got a more productive and efficient year in terms of building sites for customers. One of the pleasant ways to enhance your workflow is to simplify the range of WordPress subject matters, plugins, add-ons, apps, extensions, etc. which you use. Sure, there will always be new demanding situations to solve and unique site requirements, but do a little audit of all of the tools you use. Is there any overlap? Can you simplify?
For example, in relation to WordPress topics, do you've got an unmarried framework you constantly start from? Or maybe a theme employer you trust? Or does each new site design require a group of research time to discover a present day answer?
If you haven’t observed your favorite tools yet, that’s okay. But make 2020 the year you boom efficiency through defining your go-to options, so studying a custom solution is the exception, now not the rule.

7. Involve your customers in the design and development process

There’s almost nothing worse than creating a ton of development on a mission, only to discover the purchaser isn’t happy approximately a major a part of it. This yr, prioritize consumer remarks often all through the undertaking, to ensure all and sundry is usually on the same web page!
When you’re onboarding a brand new purchaser, make an effort to get to know their business, what they like/dislike about other websites, and their dreams for the year. Using a client questionnaire can assist standardize that process so that you don’t forget about anything within the first stage of a undertaking!
Once the venture is in motion, test in with your client throughout different phases, together with wireframes, mockups, improvement, etc. If you’re the use of Local to build the website, you may even send clients a link to the web page to your machine, giving them a danger to preview a working model. By getting feedback early on, you’ll save you major modifications down the street and hold your clients smiling!

8. Use Title Tags and Alt Text

Images could make an internet site. They maintain readers engaged, spotlight key points, and normally elevate a web page out of dreariness and into the light. But they don’t simply appear good they can also work difficult in your website online at the back of the scenes.
When you’re including an image for your web page, make certain to add an identity, and some alt text. These may sound strange to begin with, but it truly shouldn’t be too tricky to get the dangle of. Alt textual content tells visitors what the image is displaying if for any motive they can’t see the picture – perhaps if they’re the usage of a display reader, or the picture truly hasn’t loaded.
Both the identify and alt text should be clear, no longer too long, and offer enough detail to give your readers and Google sufficient statistics about your photos. Remember, Google can’t see your pictures, so it’s relying on your titles and alt textual content to recognize what your photos are about.

2019.12.08 01:03 IMightHaveBeenHacked Let's talk about predatory practices in the videogame industry and what we can do as consumers.

Videogames hold a very dear place in my heart. They allow me a reprieve from the daily problems of my life. They give me a space to share with friends I wouldn’t have otherwise. Every so often, a videogame will say something that touches me deeply. I’ve cried at least a couple times at the end of Metal Gear Solid 4. Maybe your experience with videogames is not quite the same, but I bet what I say rings somewhat true for anyone who’s picked up the hobby.
I’d argue that, as a piece of media, they’re works of art. They connect us and allow us to express ourselves. I’ve met some very special people to me, just by playing games online. And I’ve been able to play with them, in sandboxes and zombie infested lands and truly bonded over the time we’ve shared.
But games are also the product of hard work. They still are a piece of media to be distributed. At the end of the day, a game must be sold to keep the lights on: there’s developers to be paid, assets to be invested in, and stakeholders to answer to. So game companies adopt DRM policies, to thwart piracy and defend their product. They research new ways to reach broader audiences, and to hold their attention over the competition.
But I fear that, throughout the years, we’ve gotten it twisted. Game companies don’t talk in terms of “fun” but engagement nowadays. They don’t even call games as such anymore: platforms, live services – games as a service. But a service to who? I brought this question to a buddy who goes by the nickname EndlesNights, he replied with this:

“It's clear they only care about their bottom lines… For instance, how can we be in a time with simultaneously both record setting high profits and yet people are being let go from these corporations?”
“You can go into further details about the negative implications and implementations of always online DRM. For instance on launch day & during big events, the severs are almost always overstrained which prevents everyone from accessing the server. It creates an arbitrary expiry date for the game, where the severs will no longer be cost effective to maintain and no one will be able to launch the game anymore. It provides no benefits to the end users, and the general ficklety of the services has only turned potential customers away to acquire pirated & cracked copies.”

A lot of these AAA companies CEOs don’t really care for the games they make. To them, it’s just another product. Bobby Kotick is infamous for many things. Among these, one that has stuck to the back of my mind was his belief that videogames should be sold like detergent. Back in 2005 he hired a couple of Proctor & Gambler ex-employees for his publishing division. When interviewed, this was his reply:

"Processes that have worked well in packaged goods industry -- bringing goods to market, the process of market research and internalizing the business -- have all added the most value to our company…"Source: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/activision-adds-publishing-execs-with-pg-experience

Fast-forward a bit: it’s 2009, and Activison just merged with Blizzard. A bunch of their IPs were dropped, and amongst these was Brutal Legend, which seemed like it would never be published under Activision. So Double Fine negotiated with EA, who would end up publishing the game. So, of course, Activison sues EA trying to block the release of the game.Source: https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-2009-jun-05-fi-ct-lawsuit5-story.html
This is what Tim Schafer (Founder of Double Fine Productions) had to say regarding Mr. Kotick, after Double Fine got sued by Activision over the release of Brutal Legend by EA, back in 2010:

"His obligation is to his shareholders… Well, he doesn't have to be as much of a dick about it, does he? I think there is a way he can do it without being a total prick… He [Kotick] makes a big deal about not liking games, and I just don't think that attitude is good for games in general. I just don't think we're an industry of widgets...”
"We can approach it like we approach bars of soap, where you're just trying to make the cheapest bar of soap. He definitely has that that kind of widget-maker attitude. I don't think he's great for the industry, overall. You can't just latch onto something when it's popular and then squeeze the life out of it and then move on to the next one. You have to at some point create something, build something… Hopefully he'll go back to another industry soon.”Source: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/schafer-calls-bobby-kotick-a-total-prick

The lawsuit was settled outside of court, btw. But the judge said he was “… strongly inclined to rule against Activision’s motion to stop the game’s release.” You draw your own conclusions.Source: https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-2009-aug-07-fi-activision7-story.html
So, it’s pretty clear that, at least for Activision’s CEO, games don’t hold value beyond the revenue they can bring into the company. The outcome? After the success of CoD 4, Modern Warfare, CoD became a franchise that released games yearly. The games weren’t that different from each other, and each came with it’s own new monetization scheme: microtransactions, map-packs, lootboxes, etc. This is bad. And what’s worse, the quality of the games isn’t always up to par. It can’t be, if you’re expected to pump out a product year after year, using a cookie cutter formula. And CoD isn’t the worst example of this kind of thing, it’s just the most popular and polished.
The lead up question is, are we getting the short end of the stick as consumers? And I’m hoping to build a solid case of proof and evidence to say “Yes, we are!” This attitude is not localized to Activision, but widespread across the industry. It’s not the exception, is the rule. And, somehow throughout the years, we’ve just accepted this as the way things are.
I feel that we, as gamers, make tons of excuses for game companies when they mess up in the pursuit of money, out of misplaced loyalty. Because the games they put out mean more to us than just entertainment. But AAA game companies abuse our demand for games. They wring us for all our worth with a smile and then heckle us in subtle, and not so subtle ways (Yes, I have a phone Blizzard, your game is still a free PoS for the Chinese market.)
So, the real question is, what can we do about it?
All we can do is try to rally together and vote with our wallets: the only language they understand.
I'm here to tell you the current state of the market isn't fine. We’ve gotten to this point, not because games started out as 60 dollar products with a real cost of upwards 100 dollars and spendings on the side - we let it get to this point. I’m here to put forward the motion that, sometimes, we just have to let games we love die and move on. Another one will come to take it's place. It won't be the same, but it always does anyways. It is something regrettable, but when game companies predate on consumers this hard.
Below, I’ve put together a list of companies I'm personally boycotting, along with videos and articles that back up the reasons I have for this boycott. IDK if anyone will care to go through this, I certainly hope at least one other person takes me seriously and at least reads through it, just to be informed. That’s all I can ask for.

EA

    2. Article: https://www.businessinsider.com/electronic-arts-laying-off-350-employees-2019-3
  2. FIFA 2020 was basically a copy paste of FIFA 2019 with no Quality Assurance. This is the best example of what yearly franchises actually are. You can tell here since it's unpolished: they just forces gamers to reset their progress to 0 and spend more money trying to play catch up with their last year's progress, all the while including very minor updates to the game itself.

  4. They introduced microtransactions into a single player game, allowing you to prepurchase this, along with some day 1 dlc. Maybe it's to be expected now, and they’d done it before with Mass Effect 3 (And Ubisoft did it with Assassin’s Creed), but they did it with reckless abandon.
  5. Dead Space 3 will have microtransactions, to massive public uproar:

  7. Always online DRM for a Single Player game! (Simcity 2013) This was one of the building blocks for games as a service, as this form of DRM is widely tolerated nowadays. They argued it was needed back then. They wouldn’t really say why.

They didn't even prepare for the amount of players who wanted to play their game at launch! They also backpedalled the AH by the expansion, upping the drop rates, prohibiting trading "because it's not in the spirit" (BTW they just wanted to stop players selling items on the side), but THE PROFIT by then.

This is what we do to each other by defending the companies. We attack each other to see who’s right and wrong, instead of just letting people voice their opinion freely (likewise you could voice support in the company’s social media “keep doing you” and the such, but it takes all kinds. Again, I digress).

Conclusion:
If it wasn't clear by now, the companies that come out with the game's ratings, like ESRB and PEGI, that should be watching out for consumers, just cover corporate interests! Parent’s get the short end of the stick and companies just reply with empty PR statements, like “You can check the Parental Controls for your system,” which is corporate lingo for “you’re not getting your money back, we don’t care, sorry not sorry.”
Most of the money doesn't even go to the devs, if that wasn't obvious by now. They get overworked (sometimes forced to do up to 100 hours a week!), then they get laid off anyways. The money goes to executives and stakeholders, who give each other multi-million dollar bonuses and shares. These execs act like they are nice and care about the consumer, and they even do self-deprecating jokes like they are self-aware. It's just a facade to placate us, to stay on our good side while they suck more money away from us.
Game companies don’t validate their users’ grievances. They act like nothing is wrong, shut up complainers until the noise gets too loud (which not always happens) and then just do the thing they’ve been told to do for months while pretending they came up with on their own, or act like it’s some sudden realization and they’ve always had our best interests in mind...
If that isn't obvious scumbag behavior IDK what is.
I believe it is time that we as consumers put our foot down. Not because everyone else is gonna do it too and we’re gonna enforce some major change, but just because we, as individuals, refuse to be abused so. It’s up to each of us. And if enough people follow suit the market WILL change. Even if it doesn’t, that’s not a good enough reason to keep meekly paying the abusive corporations.
So, this is a list of practices I believe should be stopped, by not supporting games that enforce them:

  1. Always online DRM.
  2. Microtransactions on full 60 dollar games.
  3. Microtransactions on exclusively Singleplayer games.
  4. Time saving microtransactions. (If you have to save my time on a game I played for entertainment, then you’re crippling it by design, instead of focusing on making it fun… just so I have to spend money to MAKE it fun. Just give me back cheat codes.)
  5. Pre-ordering (stop throwing your money at incomplete products and empty promises out of hype and misplaced loyalty).
  6. Season passes
  7. Justifying gating all good cosmetics behind microtransactions “because they don’t affect gameplay anyway”.I want to touch on this one.Cosmetics affect my gameplay experience. Growing up, a favorite part of a bunch of games was customizing my character, making it feel my own. It matters, that’s why game companies charge 10 dollars for a bunch of pixels; because enough players pay for those. Just look to Minecraft and Terraria and all those sandboxes, for crying out loud, and tell me it would be the same without the creative freedom to mod in your own skins. Why are we defending them taking that away and gating it behind MORE money? I’m not saying “DLC that comes afterwards should be free”. I’m saying, when I pay for a full priced game, I expect the full content they got, not a maimed version of it. I’m not buying a game in installments, that’s what episodic games are for.Seriously, there’s even a sense of elitism between paying players and “base skin” players in many games (Fortnite comes to mind prominently). Here, check out this talk that explains the psychology behind it in brutally honest terms by the very corporate execs that don’t really care about their consumers. Infamous Video - Let’s go whaling: Tricks for monetizing mobile game players with free-to-play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNjI03CGkb4
  8. With that said, Battle Passes also get on the list. On top of wanting you to spend money on cosmetics, they make you grind for them. You’re no longer buying the cosmetic, you’re buying the option to get the cosmetic by investing ungodly amount of hours on their product, on top of whatever price the Battle Pass has. This is just psychological manipulation on top of unfair content gating.
  9. Gambling in video games: from lootboxes, to NBA’s predatory attempt on children. All of it. Gambling in videogames should receive an “Adult Only” rating, but if you can’t trust the ratings companies, why would you even risk being exposed to this BS?
Why support any of this anymore?
Disclaimer:
This is my take on the matter. I’ve tried to be impartial and back-up my arguments and provide as much info as I can. Truth be told, I’m quite bitter, and I’m aware. This list hurts me. I'd rather not support companies that make their living off the blood and sweat of hardworking people, and then spit in their faces. Who abuse the consumer and e-sport players and then try to take it back with lies. Who apologize like a manipulator trying to keep you nice and subdued, but do nothing about it.
We get a choice of which business practices we support and which we don't. It's up to each of us. I don’t fully expect many people to actively boycott these companies: they do provide us with valued entertainment. But I urge anyone who reads this to not be so quick to forgive, and to never forget what it used to be like, how we got here today, and what it’s cost us.
I leave you with this: These videos are a more in-depth look behind these scummy practices, and break it down pretty neatly, top to bottom.

2019.11.28 06:10 nguyentandat23496 The Murder of a Pregnant woman and Cutting baby from Womb Case in Nagoya, Japan

I just read about this disturbing case in Japanese and couldn’t find any source in English so I think you will find this case very interesting. The translation was done by me (with the assistant of Google) so if you have any question, feel free to ask. Also, this case happened in 1988 so I can’t find any news about it online and have to rely on information from Japanese Wikipedia as well as Discussion site, sorry in advance.
TL:DR is at the bottom.
The Case:
The Nagoya murder and cutting baby from womb case was an unresolved murder that occurred in an apartment in Tomita-cho, Nakagawa-ku, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan on the afternoon of March 18, 1988. At the time of the incident, there were two families in the first floor, and the victim couple lived in one room on the second floor, next to an empty room.
The victim at the time(a 27-year-old pregnant housewife at the time of the incident) was waiting for the birth of her first child with her husband (a 31-year-old office worker). The life of the young couple was describe as "mediocre but full of hope for the future".
On the morning of the incident, the wife sent her husband to work as usual. She was scheduled to give birth to a boy on March 13, five days before the murder, but her baby’s due date had passed, so her husband started to call his wife from the office during work. When the husband called the wife from the company after 12:00, there was nothing weird, but when he called again just before leaving the office at around 18:50 , no one answered the phone. The husband decided to go home, thinking that "It is not a big deal, she will be at home when I come back" and arrived home around 19:40. He noticed that the front door, which should normally be locked, wasn't locked, and the room lights are off.
Although feeling a little suspicious, he went to change his suit in the bedroom, and then hearing a baby cry from the living room. Thinking that the child was born, he turned on the light in the living room, only to find out that his wife was laying down motionless, and the newborn baby was crying softly under his mother feet. In addition, because the phone in the dining kitchen was also nowhere to be found, the husband rushed out of the room, borrowed a phone from the families on the first floor, and at 19:43 called to the Nagoya City Fire Department Command Center: "I need an ambulance right now!". When interviewed by Kimie Machida in 1999, the person who lent him the phone at this time testified that “He looked pale and said that he wanted to borrow the phone because his phone was cut and the baby was being born. I was just thinking that "Oh, so the baby was born". The thought that his wife was murdered never crossed my mind”
Three emergency crew members from the Nakagawa Fire Department Tomita Branch Office received a message from a man saying "The child was being born", so one of the crew members brought a forceps and scissors for cutting the umbilical cord. When the ambulance arrived at the scene, they found a pregnant woman strangled with a cord of an electric kotatsu (a low, wooden table frame covered by a futon, or heavy blanket, upon which a table top sits and a heat source underneath) in the south side of the living room , and her abdomen was cut open. She was laying on her back with her hand bound and her whole body was covered in blood. At the time of the woman's discovery, she was wearing a blue maternity dress, sweater, pink jumper and black pantyhose (That an oddly specific description). The wound on the abdomen was sharply cut from the celiac plexus to the bottom (25 cm). The fetus was taken out of the belly and replaced with a telephone handset, a telephone cord and a Mickey Mouse key holder.
The room was a sea of blood. The husband and the husband's fathers (grandfathers of the boy) each said about the situation at this time, “My wife (daughter-in-law) died in a terrible state that unimaginable to ordinary people”. The police officer of the Aichi Police Mobile Investigation Team also said that they had never seen such a disturbing murder scene before.
Next to the woman, the newborn baby boy had his first cry in a sea of blood. With the umbilical cord attached, his knee and buttocks were stabbed and his lower abdomen cut. The newspapers reported about the cuts that the baby was suffering as following.
  1. Yomiuri Shimbun-(March 19, 1988 Tokyo evening) reported that there were three cuts in the back of the left leg, the back of the left thigh, and the crotch. "
  2. The Chunichi Shimbun evening reported that there was a total of four cuts, including the left leg knee, left buttock, and lower abdomen.
  3. Mainichi Shimbun-April 3, 1988 Tokyo morning edition reported that cutting was in three places between left leg, buttocks and crotch.
Furthermore, according to the police announcement at the beginning of the incident and the report of the Asahi Shimbun, when the emergency crew arrived at the scene, the baby had the umbilical cord connected to the mother, so the emergency crew cut the umbilical cord. However, other source said that the umbilical cord was already severed when it was discovered.
The two were taken to Nagoya Kosaikai Hospital in Nakagawa Ward, but the wife died soon after. The baby had grown in the womb beyond the expected date of birth and was already in a state where self-breathing was possible at the time of discovery. However, he was in a life threatening state: In addition to suffering from "wounds that seems to have been done while cutting the womb '', his cry was slowly become weaker. He also had anemia due to trauma, symptoms of hypothermia due to cold; his body temperature had dropped below 30 degrees and he was severely anemic. However, in addition to being discovered early, the hospital doctors also conducted blood transfusion at transportation site by using his grandfather blood (the husband's father). The baby was also warmed with an incubator when transferred to the hospital. Although the baby was in the hospital for 10 days, he miraculously recovered after an hour of surgery and escaped death. The baby weighted 2,930 grams, and the professor at Nagoya University School of Medicine, Yutaka Tomoda, who performed the miracle surgery told the Asahi Shimbun that "This is a rare case. The mother died after the umbilical cord was cut. But various lucky coincidences such as early detection helped the baby to survive. "
Theories
Theory 1: Suspicion of the husband / close person
The Aichi Prefectural Police Special Investigation Headquarters was initially suspicious of the husband with the following circumstances, but the alibi was formed because he was still working at the company around 15:00, the estimated time of death of the victim:
Even after the husband's innocence was proved, the Special Search Headquarters proceeded with the investigation with the presumption that it was a "crime by acquaintance ''. But as a result of the interview investigation, a lot of witnesses said that they saw a suspicious person near the spot apartment on the day of the incident Therefore, the theory of “crimes committed by outsiders” became stronger.
Theory 2: A professional killer
Another theory is that the murder is a professional since the police can’t find any evidence at the crime scene (beside a 38cm shoe size)
There were also theories about the murderer being a person who worked/studied in the medicine feel but this theory was disproved since the cut in the victim belly was reversed in comparison with the C-section cut (the use of surgery to deliver babies) conduct by professionals.
Suspects
The victim told the female friend who visited that day that the room next to them was empty, but she was feeling worried because she occasionally witnessed a man entering and leaving.
Also, on the day of the incident, a suspicious man around the age of 30 visited the downstairs family (the family where the victim's husband made the phone call) and asked `` Do you know Mr. Nakamura?.
Furthermore, as a result of the investigation, new testimony was brought as follows.
“At around 14:30 on the day of the incident, a car idle engine sound was heard in the apartment parking lot.”
Two elementary school boys living in the neighborhood (5th and 3rd graders) testified that at around 16:30 on the day of the crime, an unknown suspicious man was roaming while scolding the house on the north side of the road. According to them, the characteristics of the man were as follows.
"The man is 37 to 38 years old and about 175 centimeters"
“He was wearing a long black jumper, no glasses, and a light brown beret-like cap.”
“He walked with both hands in his pockets, hiding his face behind coat collar”
"Around 19 o'clock on the day immediately before the incident was discovered, on the way back from the abacus school, a 5th grade elementary school boy saw a man with similar features to the above suspect hangs for about 10 minutes in the west of the mansion crime scene ''
This is a very interesting and disturbing case that I found very little article in English. For the victim family, after the murder, the husband and his son were reported to move abroad to a different country.
TL,DR: A pregnant woman was murdered, her baby was taken out of the womb. A telephone handset, telephone cord and key holder was stuck inside her belly.

Edit: Regarding the telephone and key holder in the belly, it is also theorized that the criminal would have had the desire to "cut out a pregnant woman's abdomen with his own hand and take out the fetus" or "want to look inside the pregnant woman's body". If we think so, what was put in the belly can be interpreted as "handset = placenta" "phone cord = umbilical cord" "Mickey Mouse key holder = fetus",

Edit 2: It i believed that the boy still haven't known anything about his birth and currently living with his father and grandmother in Hawaii. The grandfather (Husband's father passed away earlier due to stomach cancer.
I also found out that both husband and wife were an employee of ARMWAY ( A multi-level maarketing company) so someone may have a grudge with them. In fact, the friend who visitted the wife at the day of her death also came to receive some Armway's deodorants products.

Buying & Shipping

1. What’s the best place to buy my anime figures from?
That’s going to depend a lot on what works for you, but most people around here buy them from Amiami, Big in Japan, Hobby Search, HobbyLink Japan, or Tokyo Otaku Mode. If none of those work for you for whatever reason, there’s a list of reputable retailers in the sidebar that you can check out at any time. Be extra careful when ordering figures from websites like Amazon or ebay, as there are a lot of bootlegs on those sites. Don’t be afraid to ask in our Bootleg Megathread if you’re unsure.
 
2. What differences are there between the shipping options I get from most Japanese shops?
Below is a rundown of the main shipping choices you’ll get at most retailers. Keep in mind that if an order is large enough you will be forced to use one of the more expensive options, as SAL shipments have lower size and weight restrictions.
  • Unregistered SAL: Sometimes referred to as uSAL, is usually the cheapest method. It does not come with any tracking or insurance. Usually takes up 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • Registered SAL: Sometimes referred to as rSAL, is insured for the declared value up to 6,000 yen. It comes with a tracking number and usually takes 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • EMS: This method of shipping is much faster than either SAL options, usually arriving within a week of shipment. EMS shipments are insured for the declared value up to 2,000,000 yen.
  • Airmail
  • E-packet
  • Surface: Shops don't offer this very often. It's an actual cargo ship and slow as a result.
  • DHL: Becoming more available as an alternative to EMS on AmiAmi and other sites. Can be less expensive than EMS and of comparable speed, but may be more reliant on the specific geographical area being shipped to. Offers their own tracking.
 
3. I placed two+ orders for figures at different times. Will my items be shipped together, or will I have to pay shipping twice?
Most shops will ask you to pay shipping on a per-order basis, but here are some that will allow combined shipping:
  • Amiami: You can combine orders here, as long as the orders ship in the same month. It doesn’t matter if the item is new or preowned. Any preorders that are set for that month can also be combined with other orders for that month. However, be aware that if the preorder gets delayed, Amiami will remove that item from that month’s shipment and place it on a new order. To combine orders on Amiami, use the “Combine Orders” feature under “My Account”.
  • Hobby Search: Hobby Search will let you combine orders that release in the same month, but you cannot combine in stock items with preorders. If you want to combine multiple preorders, or multiple in stock items, you can do so using the “Order Recombination” feature on your account page.
  • HobbyLink Japan: At HLJ, you have the option to send paid orders to their “Private Warehouse”, where you can store them for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to ship the items, you simply select which items to ship and HLJ will combine them into one shipment for you. To use this, just select the “Private Warehouse” option as shipping when you order.
  • GSC Web Shop: Here you’ll pay a flat 2,000 yen fee per order. It doesn’t matter how many items you put in your order, or how many different months the items release in. They will charge you 2,000 yen and ship all items as they release. The exception to this rule is their Wonder Festival exclusive items. Those can only be placed in the same order as other Wonder Festival items.
If you’re unsure about whether or not a shop we haven’t listed will combine your orders, please refer to their individual FAQ’s.
 
4. When will I get charged for my preorder?
Most Japanese shops charge you once the item is in stock and ready for shipment. When that happens, they will send you an email asking for payment. Some shops (mostly overseas ones), will allow you to pay for the item up front though, if you’d like. A few with that option are:
  • Big in Japan (Japanese store)
  • Tokyo Otaku Mode
  • Anime Island
  • Crunchyroll
Keep in mind that overseas stores will likely get the figure a few months after Japanese ones, so pay attention to the release date stated on the website you are buying from so as to avoid that confusion.
 
5. Should I expect to pay customs fees when importing figures?
That depends on where you live. Here’s a quick rundown:
  • Australia: 10% GST is now assessed up front.
  • Canada: Minimum declared value for charges is around CAD$20 for regular shipments, and CAD$60 for gifts (gifting something only seems to lower the declared value by about CAD$40, not deplete it completely). When using Amiami, try their Small Air Packet option. It comes with tracking, gets there in about the same time as EMS, and is better at avoiding customs.
  • Europe: Using EMS raises your chance of getting charged for customs. SAL can still avoid customs in some countries, but generally gets checked in the UK now if the items are above the threshold. Amiami offers a shipping service called “Small Air Packet” that is really good for avoiding customs when you are only shipping one or two figures. Small Air Packet usually takes about the same amount of time as EMS, and still comes with tracking.The minimum declared value for customs charges in the Europe is pretty low- around £15 (£36 for gifts) / €20.
  • Mexico: Minimum declared value for customs fees is USD$300 for shipments by post, and USD$50 for shipments by courier.
  • United States: A shipment has to have a declared value of USD$2,000 before customs starts hitting you with fees, so you most likely won’t have to worry about them at all.
 
6. The figure I want is an exclusive, how do I go about ordering one outside of Japan?
You have three options for this:
A. Big in Japan is known to stock exclusive figures and ship to other countries. Usually the price is higher because they build in their proxy fees, but it’s easier than worrying about using a forwarder or proxy service. If you live in the US, Crunchyroll, Right Stuf, and Tokyo Otaku Mode also get exclusives sometimes, but out of the states the shipping can get expensive.
B. Forwarding Services: A forwarder is someone who you ship an exclusive item to so that they can forward the package on to you, usually for a flat fee + shipping. When using a forwarder you still make the purchase yourself, and enter their address into the shipping field. When the box arrives at the forwarder they will then stick your address onto the package and send it on its way.
Some popular forwarders are:
Be sure to read each sites instructions on forwarding carefully!
C. Proxy Services: With a proxy, you tell them what the item you’re looking for is and they will purchase it in your stead. This is handy for when a company doesn’t accept foreign credit cards, or you’re having trouble navigating a Japanese website.
Some popular proxies are:
Again, be sure you thoroughly read through each sites proxy instructions.
 
7. I see a bunch of really cheap figures that ship from China on ebay. Are those okay to buy?
Generally, no. They’re most likely bootlegs. If you want a second opinion on that, feel free to ask in the Bootleg Megathread that’s always stickied at the top of the sub.
 
8. What’s a bootleg, and how can I avoid buying them?
A bootleg is a counterfeit figure often made using rejected molds of the official product. They are usually priced significantly lower than the genuine article, and in order to make their profit, bootleggers use lower quality materials and have less attention to detail- resulting in a substandard figure.
The Bootleg Megathread that I mentioned in question 7 is a great tool to avoid buying any bootlegs. It has a few tips and tricks to avoiding them to begin with, and a few more on how to spot them if you’re worried you might already own one.
 
9. Does anyone know when figure X is going to be released? How do I know if it was delayed?
My Figure Collection (sometimes referred to as MFC) does an excellent job of staying on top of information like release dates and delays. If you’re curious about an upcoming figures release date, check there first. This information can be found directly under the “Releases” section on a figure’s entry. If you only see a month and a year in that section, it means the release date has not yet been announced by the manufacturer, and there is still a chance the figure could be delayed.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
 
10. The figure I want is long sold out at normal retailers! What’s the best place to pick it up in the aftermarket?
A list of reputable retailers can be found under the “Shops” section of the /AnimeFigures sidebar. They all sell legitimate products, and many of them also sell figures second hand. However, the most frequently suggested second hand sites are Mandarake and Amiami- who has a preowned section that they update every night save Sundays and Japanese holidays around 1PM JST and again around 6PM JST.
Note: When you search Mandarake, you’ll get the best results by using the Japanese characters for whatever you are searching. If you don’t know them, you can find them on MFC by clicking on any of the “details” in that figure’s listing.
 
11. Amiami has a figure I’m interested in labeled as “For sale in Japan only”. Does this mean I can’t order it without a proxy or forwarder?
No, you can still order it. Amiami’s English site has that warning on many items, and it’s mostly meant to inform you that this product was made for a Japanese market, and as such, will have Japanese speaking/writing in it- so don’t expect any instructions to be in English. If Amiami doesn’t want foreigners buying a certain product, they won’t even list it on their English site.
 

Displaying Your Figures

12. What display cases do you recommend?
If you live near an Ikea try out one of these:
*If you decided on a Detolf, you might find that there is a lot of wasted space. Here are a few tutorials on raising the shelves or and adding extra ones in.
If you don’t live near an Ikea, Amazon has a few display options, though they are more expensive. Also keep an eye on your local Craigslist (or your country’s equivalent) and stores near you that are closing up.
 
13. What lighting do you guys recommend?
Ikea’s Dioder LED strips are often suggested. They come in white or muti-colored.
Most hardware stores carry something similar though, if you don’t live by an Ikea. Just make sure that the lights don’t get too hot!
 
14. What are those clear plastic boxes that I see under everyone’s figures in their collection posts, and where can I get them?
Those are called risers. Most of us use standard acrylic risers like these. Some other, easy to find things that have been suggested are:
Check your local hobby store for the first 2 options, or your local hardware store if you want to make your own.
Another common suggestion is to visit The Container Store if you have one near you. They have a lot of things to choose from that can suit a variety of needs. Be sure to check out their standard acrylic risers, their Amac boxes, and the various display cases they sell (baseball cases, mini car cases. hockey puck cases, etc).
 
15. Should I keep my figures sealed?
That is, of course, up to you really, but here are a few things to keep in mind when debating this question:
  • Keeping it sealed can actually damage your figure. PVC figures usually have something called plasticizer in them, and that plasticizer needs to be able to breath. If a PVC figure isn’t exposed to oxygen, after a period of time the plasticizer starts to break down and form a sticky substance on the surface of the figure. Simply opening your figures and taking them out of the box prevents this from happening. If you happen to find plasticizer goo on one of your figures, Kahotan has a handy guide for dealing with it.
  • Unlike some other figure markets, keeping an anime figure sealed won’t raise its value by a whole lot. In fact, because of the plasticizer problem mentioned above, your figure could actually be in better condition if you open it versus keeping it sealed.
 

Finding the Right Figure(s) for You

16. There are so many figure companies! Who makes good figures?!
Obviously this is a very subjective question, but as a general starting point, here are a few well renowned figure companies:
  • Alter
  • Max Factory
  • Good Smile Company
  • Kotobukiya (usually hit or miss for people. Use your best judgement based off of the prototype)
  • Aquamarine
  • Flare
  • Stronger
 
17. I really love “series X / character X”- how can I check if any figures were ever made for it?
My Figure Collection can be your best friend here. Simply do a search on the name of the series or character using the search bar located at the top right of the screen, and all associated figures pop up!
Alternatively, if you’re looking at a figure’s MFC entry, most of the text under the “Details” section can be clicked on and used to run a search.
 
18. How can I commission a custom figure?
None of the major figure companies (Alter, Kotobukiya, Good Smile Company, etc.) will take a commission for a single figure. This thread has a few websites in it that you can check out, or you can look into garage kits. Some kit painters would be willing to resculpt, frankenstein together, or otherwise modify kits for the right price. /ResinKits has a lot of skilled builders that might be willing to help.
 

Keeping Up with New Announcements

19. How can I keep up with figure news (announcements, updates, etc.)?
Most people use a MFC combined with any or all of the following news sites:
To use MFC for this I’ll quote question #9.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
Most companies have one or more Twitter accounts. Some examples: Good Smile Company sales, Good Smile's USA branch, Max Factory, AmiAmi Hobby News.
 
20. Everyone’s excited about something called Wonfes….. what the heck is that?!
WonFes (short for Wonder Festival) is a biannual figure expo where many figure producers (both large and small) show off new sculpts and updates to figures already under way. Most companies save their most exciting announcements for WonFes, so we all look forward to the expo whenever it rolls around! Winter Wonder Festival is usually held in February, while Summer Wonder Festival is usually in July. The event has also spread to Shanghai, in the late spring.
 
21. One or two (or 15) figures were announced at WonFes that I’m really excited about! How can I keep track of their progress once the event is over?
MFC is always really quick about getting new WonFes announcements (or any others throughout the year, for that matter) listed in their database, so we suggest using that. To find a figure from the event you can search any number of things, including the name of the character or the name of the show. You can also use the tag search to search “WonderFestival 20xx_[season]” to see all items announced at that event.

2019.09.02 11:40 chilidirigible FAQ Thread

/AnimeFigures FAQ

Buying & Shipping

1. What’s the best place to buy my anime figures from?
That’s going to depend a lot on what works for you, but most people around here buy them from Amiami, Big in Japan, Hobby Search, HobbyLink Japan, or Tokyo Otaku Mode. If none of those work for you for whatever reason, there’s a list of reputable retailers in the sidebar that you can check out at any time. Be extra careful when ordering figures from websites like Amazon or ebay, as there are a lot of bootlegs on those sites. Don’t be afraid to ask in our Bootleg Megathread if you’re unsure.
 
2. What differences are there between the shipping options I get from most Japanese shops?
Below is a rundown of the main shipping choices you’ll get at most retailers. Keep in mind that if an order is large enough you will be forced to use one of the more expensive options, as SAL shipments have lower size and weight restrictions.
 
3. I placed two+ orders for figures at different times. Will my items be shipped together, or will I have to pay shipping twice?
Most shops will ask you to pay shipping on a per-order basis, but here are some that will allow combined shipping:
If you’re unsure about whether or not a shop we haven’t listed will combine your orders, please refer to their individual FAQ’s.
 
4. When will I get charged for my preorder?
Most Japanese shops charge you once the item is in stock and ready for shipment. When that happens, they will send you an email asking for payment. Some shops (mostly overseas ones), will allow you to pay for the item up front though, if you’d like. A few with that option are:
Keep in mind that overseas stores will likely get the figure a few months after Japanese ones, so pay attention to the release date stated on the website you are buying from so as to avoid that confusion.
 
5. Should I expect to pay customs fees when importing figures?
That depends on where you live. Here’s a quick rundown:
 
6. The figure I want is an exclusive, how do I go about ordering one outside of Japan?
You have three options for this:
A. Big in Japan is known to stock exclusive figures and ship to other countries. Usually the price is higher because they build in their proxy fees, but it’s easier than worrying about using a forwarder or proxy service. If you live in the US, Crunchyroll, Right Stuf, and Tokyo Otaku Mode also get exclusives sometimes, but out of the states the shipping can get expensive.
B. Forwarding Services: A forwarder is someone who you ship an exclusive item to so that they can forward the package on to you, usually for a flat fee + shipping. When using a forwarder you still make the purchase yourself, and enter their address into the shipping field. When the box arrives at the forwarder they will then stick your address onto the package and send it on its way.
Some popular forwarders are:
Be sure to read each sites instructions on forwarding carefully!
C. Proxy Services: With a proxy, you tell them what the item you’re looking for is and they will purchase it in your stead. This is handy for when a company doesn’t accept foreign credit cards, or you’re having trouble navigating a Japanese website.
Some popular proxies are:
Again, be sure you thoroughly read through each sites proxy instructions.
 
7. I see a bunch of really cheap figures that ship from China on ebay. Are those okay to buy?
Generally, no. They’re most likely bootlegs. If you want a second opinion on that, feel free to ask in the Bootleg Megathread that’s always stickied at the top of the sub.
 
8. What’s a bootleg, and how can I avoid buying them?
A bootleg is a counterfeit figure often made using rejected molds of the official product. They are usually priced significantly lower than the genuine article, and in order to make their profit, bootleggers use lower quality materials and have less attention to detail- resulting in a substandard figure.
The Bootleg Megathread that I mentioned in question 7 is a great tool to avoid buying any bootlegs. It has a few tips and tricks to avoiding them to begin with, and a few more on how to spot them if you’re worried you might already own one.
 
9. Does anyone know when figure X is going to be released? How do I know if it was delayed?
My Figure Collection (sometimes referred to as MFC) does an excellent job of staying on top of information like release dates and delays. If you’re curious about an upcoming figures release date, check there first. This information can be found directly under the “Releases” section on a figure’s entry. If you only see a month and a year in that section, it means the release date has not yet been announced by the manufacturer, and there is still a chance the figure could be delayed.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
 
10. The figure I want is long sold out at normal retailers! What’s the best place to pick it up in the aftermarket?
A list of reputable retailers can be found under the “Shops” section of the /AnimeFigures sidebar. They all sell legitimate products, and many of them also sell figures second hand. However, the most frequently suggested second hand sites are Mandarake and Amiami- who has a preowned section that they update every night save Sundays and Japanese holidays around 1PM JST and again around 6PM JST.
Note: When you search Mandarake, you’ll get the best results by using the Japanese characters for whatever you are searching. If you don’t know them, you can find them on MFC by clicking on any of the “details” in that figure’s listing.
 
11. Amiami has a figure I’m interested in labeled as “For sale in Japan only”. Does this mean I can’t order it without a proxy or forwarder?
No, you can still order it. Amiami’s English site has that warning on many items, and it’s mostly meant to inform you that this product was made for a Japanese market, and as such, will have Japanese speaking/writing in it- so don’t expect any instructions to be in English. If Amiami doesn’t want foreigners buying a certain product, they won’t even list it on their English site.
 

Displaying Your Figures

12. What display cases do you recommend?
If you live near an Ikea try out one of these:
*If you decided on a Detolf, you might find that there is a lot of wasted space. Here are a few tutorials on raising the shelves or and adding extra ones in.
If you don’t live near an Ikea, Amazon has a few display options, though they are more expensive. Also keep an eye on your local Craigslist (or your country’s equivalent) and stores near you that are closing up.
 
13. What lighting do you guys recommend?
Ikea’s Dioder LED strips are often suggested. They come in white or muti-colored.
Most hardware stores carry something similar though, if you don’t live by an Ikea. Just make sure that the lights don’t get too hot!
 
14. What are those clear plastic boxes that I see under everyone’s figures in their collection posts, and where can I get them?
Those are called risers. Most of us use standard acrylic risers like these. Some other, easy to find things that have been suggested are:
Check your local hobby store for the first 2 options, or your local hardware store if you want to make your own.
Another common suggestion is to visit The Container Store if you have one near you. They have a lot of things to choose from that can suit a variety of needs. Be sure to check out their standard acrylic risers, their Amac boxes, and the various display cases they sell (baseball cases, mini car cases. hockey puck cases, etc).
 
15. Should I keep my figures sealed?
That is, of course, up to you really, but here are a few things to keep in mind when debating this question:
  • Keeping it sealed can actually damage your figure. PVC figures usually have something called plasticizer in them, and that plasticizer needs to be able to breath. If a PVC figure isn’t exposed to oxygen, after a period of time the plasticizer starts to break down and form a sticky substance on the surface of the figure. Simply opening your figures and taking them out of the box prevents this from happening. If you happen to find plasticizer goo on one of your figures, Kahotan has a handy guide for dealing with it.
  • Unlike some other figure markets, keeping an anime figure sealed won’t raise its value by a whole lot. In fact, because of the plasticizer problem mentioned above, your figure could actually be in better condition if you open it versus keeping it sealed.
 

Finding the Right Figure(s) for You

16. There are so many figure companies! Who makes good figures?!
Obviously this is a very subjective question, but as a general starting point, here are a few well renowned figure companies:
  • Alter
  • Max Factory
  • Good Smile Company
  • Kotobukiya (usually hit or miss for people. Use your best judgement based off of the prototype)
  • Aquamarine
  • Flare
  • Stronger
 
17. I really love “series X / character X”- how can I check if any figures were ever made for it?
My Figure Collection can be your best friend here. Simply do a search on the name of the series or character using the search bar located at the top right of the screen, and all associated figures pop up!
Alternatively, if you’re looking at a figure’s MFC entry, most of the text under the “Details” section can be clicked on and used to run a search.
 
18. How can I commission a custom figure?
None of the major figure companies (Alter, Kotobukiya, Good Smile Company, etc.) will take a commission for a single figure. This thread has a few websites in it that you can check out, or you can look into garage kits. Some kit painters would be willing to resculpt, frankenstein together, or otherwise modify kits for the right price. /ResinKits has a lot of skilled builders that might be willing to help.
 

Keeping Up with New Announcements

19. How can I keep up with figure news (announcements, updates, etc.)?
Most people use a MFC combined with any or all of the following news sites:
To use MFC for this I’ll quote question #9.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
Most companies have one or more Twitter accounts. Some examples: Good Smile Company sales, Good Smile's USA branch, Max Factory, AmiAmi Hobby News.
 
20. Everyone’s excited about something called Wonfes….. what the heck is that?!
WonFes (short for Wonder Festival) is a biannual figure expo where many figure producers (both large and small) show off new sculpts and updates to figures already under way. Most companies save their most exciting announcements for WonFes, so we all look forward to the expo whenever it rolls around! Winter Wonder Festival is usually held in February, while Summer Wonder Festival is usually in July. The event has also spread to Shanghai, in the late spring.
 
21. One or two (or 15) figures were announced at WonFes that I’m really excited about! How can I keep track of their progress once the event is over?
MFC is always really quick about getting new WonFes announcements (or any others throughout the year, for that matter) listed in their database, so we suggest using that. To find a figure from the event you can search any number of things, including the name of the character or the name of the show. You can also use the tag search to search “WonderFestival 20xx_[season]” to see all items announced at that event.

Rules:

  1. Do not promote bootlegs. Everyone makes mistakes, and sometimes we order a bootleg for our first figure, not knowing the difference. However, bootlegs are harmful to the industry, so we do not want to support them. If you mistakenly purchased a bootleg, or would like to show comparison photos of the bootleg versus the legitimate figure for educational purposes, that's fine; saying "I would buy that bootleg" or "It doesn't matter to me if it's bootleg as long as it looks good" is a dangerous attitude to adopt and exactly the kind of sentiment we wish to avoid in this subreddit. Any links for purchasing bootlegs will be removed.
  2. Mark your NSFW collections, please. Some figures are lewd, cast-off or just slightly inappropriate for work, so make sure you're correctly marking your posts as NSFW when applicable. It's better to err on the side of caution, even if your workplace might be more accepting than others. No sexual or suggestive content involving minors ("loli"s): Directly from reddit's updated Community Policy as of January 2019.
  3. Keep your posts to figures only. This is /AnimeFigures, and the purpose of the subreddit is for figures. Other related merchandise should go to /AnimeMerchandise, a sub for all other anime merchandise. If you have an album of images that contain one or two non-figure items, that's fine, but posts solely containing non-figures will be removed. Figures must come from either a Japanese series (manga, anime, visual novels, etc.) or be produced by a Japanese manufacturecompany.
  4. Please don't spam. You can post reviews or link to your own blog, but keep in mind reddit's rules in regards to spam. This isn't meant to limit your own content, but rather encourage you to post things from outside your own content.
  5. Selling and trading figures is allowed as long as you follow these rules:
  • No 'looking to buy' posts - if you need help finding a figure online, that's fine, but please don't solicit users.
  • All sale items must be listed and priced.
  • All sales/trades must in be a self-post format. This is for ease of reading and being able to see all the pricing and details upfront - it's easy to overlook pricing on an imgur album, so for the sake of convenience, make a self-post and list everything in the body of the post.
  • A date+name stamped photo of the figure(s) for sale must be provided. Group photos are okay, but be prepared to provide more detailed shots of individual figures upon request.
For trades, please have your photo verification ready before you make an offer to the interested party, and include it in your comment.
  • Any freebies you are planning to give away must also be pictured with the name and date stamp and listed in your post.
  • Your account must be at least 3 months old to sell here. If you are new to Reddit, but have a My Figure Collection account that meets the required age, message the mods for permission before posting your sale.
  • All sale/trade posts must include [Sale] or [Trade] in the title.
  • One sale/trade post per user every 7 days. Don't flood the subreddit with sales every few days. If your figures are not selling, step back and evaluate your pricing, and then post again in a week.
  • For eBay listings, please follow the standard requirements (self-post with prices listed, time+name stamp, etc.). If you have an auction, you must include a 'Buy it Now' option as well.
To expedite the approval of your sale post, here are a few guidelines on what we expect from a verification photo:
  • The current (within 3 days of the posting) date + your username on a handwritten, clearly visible note. This should be visible with every item being sold, either singly or as part of a group.
  • All items for sale clearly visible in the photo(s). This includes making sure no figures are obscured by anything such as other boxes, other figures, or backgrounds. Photos that are too blurry or are otherwise indistinguishable will be discounted and you will be asked to rephotograph anything we couldn't make out.
  • Only items for sale should be photographed. In the event that your photo contains figures not for sale, please make mention in your post that only the items listed in your sale thread are for sale.
  • Sales of more than 10 figures need to be grouped together in a groupshot image.
  • If you have a large sale post (50+ figures), please group your figures to no more than 10 figures per image. Lists of figures should match images accordingly in groups of 10 - Figures #1-10 should be in image #1, Figures #11-20 should be in image #2, and so on. This is to help both the mod team reviewing your sale, and for potential buyers interested in the figures - that way it's not a scavenger hunt trying to find figures in your list.
    In the event that you have a Pre-Order, but are no longer able to purchase it, you may sell/give away your PO if you have the following:
  • A reddit or MFC account of 3+ months
  • A screenshot of the confirmation email you received from the retailer, regarding your PO (please black out personal information first!)
If you feel a user's pricing is too steep, or have seen the same figure(s) for cheaper on another site, please be respectful and polite - don't be rude or harass them if you feel their pricing is too high. If the seller has indicated their prices are negotiable, please politely ask them to come down in price if you feel their pricing is too high; otherwise, be respectful and let them carry on with their sales.

2019.07.13 00:48 feathereddinos [Guide] Hwahae TOP 100 Korean Sunscreen List + Ingredient Analysis/Awareness

[Guide] Hwahae TOP 100 Korean Sunscreen List + Ingredient Analysis/Awareness
Hwahae: It's a review/ranking app for Koreans for beauty-related things. This list is for people who can't read Korean/don't use the app.
SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG. It took much longer than other lists because of all the info I had to gather. That and me rage quitting for a while after computer decided to delete all the ingredient lists I typed out. :I
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Info (That I got questions about):
The reason I typed out some of the ingredient lists is bc I can't find the list in English online that I can easily copy and paste, or the ingredients aren't up to date.
I bolded some ingredients that are helpful for skin/skin-identical for healthy skin barrier.
The dollar cost is the converted retail price of what it would cost in Korea, without sale/promo.
I also looked up all the common plant names from their scientific names because it annoys me when I look at ingredients and I have no idea what that plant is..
PEG - something means something has been altered or made to be water soluble. It is useful for that but some people avoid it due to microplastics (I don't know a whole lot about it, but have heard people say this).
You don't need to be SUPER DUPER concerned about visible light/blue light protection and whatnot, even though some of these products claim to protect against them.
TINTED sunscreens are lightly tinted usually in beige or peach color. Peachy shades cancel dark/brown-ish tones (like dark spots, dark undereyes), making skin appear brightemore awake than normal.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FOR SENSITIVE SKINNED FOLKS ONLY:
There is fragrance in the form of natural essential oils and synthetic oils in some of these products. Contrary to popular belief, synthetic fragrance isn't worse than essential oils as they can be modified to have less skin-sensitizing components.
While fragrance can be perfectly fine for some if you have healthy skin and don't mind the actual smell, VERY sensitive skin types may want to avoid it as we don't know exactly what it's made up of. There's another camp that says long term exposure fragrance/essential oils on healthy skin can make it more likely for your skin to develop problems/sensitivity later on. As always, YMMV.
Many of these companies claim that their product is the gentlest for the most sensitive skin because of EWG (Environmental Working Group) rating of 1, but EWG is NOT a reliable source, especially for sensitive skinned folks**, as they can be very biased and promote skin-sensitizing things just because an ingredient sounds more "natural".\* Natural things usually contain much more possible skin triggers than lab-isolated, single ingredients.

Potentially Irritating Filters (From Lab Muffin Beauty Science Blog)
Avobenzone is a common irritant and allergen, so it tends to be unsuitable for sensitive skin, and you’re left with inorganic sunscreens only.
If you’re elsewhere in the world, the newer UVA1 filters aren’t particularly irritating or allergenic.
A few other organic sunscreens also tend to cause allergic and irritant reactions: octocrylene, oxybenzone, avobenzone, PABA, Padimate O and enzacamene.

This is sunscreen is very popular in Korea from what I gather, even outside of Hwahae.

Combination Physical/Chemical
Sunscreen Ingredients: Octisalate, Zinc oxide, Titanium Dioxide
Other Attributes: Use 30 minutes before going outside (30 minutes to be the typical recommendation in Korea - unlike the 15 minutes in the U.S. - according to labmuffin, you only need to wait 8-10 minutes for sunscreen to sink in before using makeup*)*, no water-resistant claim, daily sunscreen (they have another sunscreen that's for sports/outdoors/waterproof)

Water, cyclopentasiloxane, ethylhexyl salicylate (Octisalate), zinc oxide, dicaprylyl carbonate, dipropylene glycol, titanium dioxide, lauryl PEG-8 dimethicone, PEG-10 dimethicone, dimethicone, disteardimonium hectorite, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), magneium sulfate, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, phenyl trimethicone (this is a silicone that makes things have shiny/glossy effect, it's used in hair care a lot to make hair look shiny), alumium hydroxide, aluminum stearate, methicone, polyglyceryl-6 polyricinoleate, glyceryl caprylate, caprylyl glycol, disodium EDTA, ubiquinone (CoQ10, an antioxidant), hydrolyzed collagen (humectant/amino acids), acetyl hexapeptide-8, fragrance, phenoxyethanol.

Fragrant oils/extracts: fragrance
Good Things besides sun protection:
- A bit fewer ingredients than other sunscreens, for those who want less sensitizing things
- Ubiquinone is a good antioxidant (already exist in our bods) (idebenone is the synthetic version of it with smaller molecules, as ubiquinone has trouble penetrating the skin. Ubiquinone's patent apparently just ended so you'll see more idebenone serums and such now in AB)
- Great humectant properties from hydrolyzed collagen, also skin-identical components
- Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is argireline, good a good humectant and helpful for skin barrier, is claimed to be anti-wrinkle

Fragrant oils/extracts: orange peel essential oil, lavender essential oil
Potentially problematic things: Titanium Dioxide alone may not be ideal for some, as it doesn't cover as much of the UV spectrum as other sunscreen agents, particularly UVA.
Other Info: 30 Months unopened, 12 months opened, Innisfree suggests writing down the date you opened it/got it on the back of the bottle, due to the lack of more stronger preservatives.
Good Things besides sun protection:

8. [Biore] Aqua Rich Watery Essense - SPF 50+/PA++++ - 4.02/5 (1,116 Reviews)
50g
Chemical Only
Sunscreen Ingredients: Octinoxate, Uvinul T 150, Uvinul A Plus & Tinsorb S (ratzillacosme)
Other attributes: Watesweat resistant, but not enough for outdoor exercise, more of an everyday sunscreen

Water, ethanol, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate (Octinoxate), Lauryl Methacrylate/Sodium Methacrylate Crosspolymer, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine (Tinosorb S), diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate (Uniul A Plus), dimethicone, Ethylhexyl Triazone (Univul T 150), Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Dipropylene Glycol, xylitol, dextrin palmitate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, polysilicon-9, glyceryl stearate, Aminomethyl Propanol, vinyl dimethicone/methicone silsesquioxane crosspolymer, Agar, Isoceteth-20, C30-45 Alkyl Methicone, polyvinyl alcohol, C30-45 Olefin, sodium hydroxide, Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, sodium hyaluronate, royal jelly extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) fruit extract, phenoxyethanol (preservative), Disodium EDTA (preservative booster), BHT, fragrance.

Fragrant Oils/Extracts: Orange extract, grapefruit extract, lemon extract, fragrance
Potentially problematic ingredients: Agar is used here, possibly as a thickener, but apparently some people break out from algae/seaweed. But it's used in a very small amount. Royal jelly does not have substantial studies backing its usefulness in skincare, it may also be an irritant for some (PC). It contains a lot of ethanol, the drying alcohol, for those of you who want to avoid it. Alcohol is usually used as a solvent for other ingredients and elegant fast drying effects/enhancing skin penetration.
Good Things:
- Awesome modern, broad-spectrum sunscreen filters (not that others are BAD, the overall formula matters, but for sensitive skinned folks looking for less-irritating chemical filters, the new ones are of interest)
- Hyaluronic acid & some other things for humectants
- Xylitol provide prebiotic benefits

Do we really need a picture for this in this sub? Lmao.

Here's a great breakdown of chemical vs physical sunscreens by Labmuffin

Why are there so many recent products with a lot of essential oils?
I personally think it's because essential oils get a pass rating of "1" in EWG (Environmental Working Group) but fragrance gets an "8". This is quite a biased way of looking at it because they're basically the same thing. But one is modified while the other is not. And uncontrolled substances tend to have a higher chance of causing allergies and other issues.
There are hundreds of chemicals that make up essential oils. There may be skin benefits from other components of EOs but also skin-sensitizing chemicals.
Some companies still list modified essential oils in the ingredient list, such as when they take out the phototoxicity causing chemicals in citrus oils specifically for use in cosmetics.

What about preservatives?
There's been a lack of broad-spectrum preservatives in both AB and Western skincare lately, due to most people not understanding their true safety data/the fear of "chemicals", pressuring companies to change the preservatives that have been used in the industry due to great efficacy and long term safety track record.
Parabens are actually quite "natural" if you want to nitpick, as they're isolated chemicals from fruits and veggies like carrots, cucumbers, and blueberries.

1,2-Hexanediol is a preservative booster as well as a moisture-binding ingredient, that I have seen used very often in Korean products. It has some antimicrobial properties, but it does not prohibit the growth of bad shit by itself. It's usually used in conjunction with other gentle preservatives to boost them up.
Disodium EDTA is another preservative booster, often used when a product contains a lot of plant extracts.

Antioxidants like vitamin E, rosemary extract, grapefruit seed extracts are antiOXIDANTS, NOT preservatives. They work to slow rancidity, like in oils. They don't stop things from growing.
For your safety, please do not DIY lotions and creams or anything containing water without proper preservatives; Also avoid homemade skincare that is sold at Etsy & elsewhere that I see way too often without preservatives. Things without water are okay.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Interesting interview about the state of current cosmetic industry:
This interview with a cosmetic chemist is an excellent source to get a deeper understanding of people pressuring companies to forgo preservatives. & How using "natural" things in skincare can be polluting the environment more than we thought, compared to lab-made chemicals.
P.S. I don't know if I'm going to make any more of these lists bc there isn't that much interest in these sorts of things anyway, generally.

EDIT: THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE THANK YOUS!!
