    Much Ado About (North) Korea

    With tensions rising in the Korean peninsula, both sides sabre rattling about nuclear war and this board in desperate need of some activity, I thought I'll ask you guys your opinion. What should be done about North Korea? How should the US/ the World proceed with the current crisis? I'll be posting my views later once others has posted theirs. We'll have a discussion. Things may get heated (hopefully) and I'll have done my small part to try and spur forum activity. Here's a quick summary of what's been happening in the last couple of weeks: July 28: North Korea launches its second intercontinental ballistic missile this month, sending the projectile 600 miles into the Sea of Japan. Trump said in a statement that North Korea's test launch "is only the latest reckless and dangerous action by the North Korean regime." July 29: Kim said the latest missile test shows that his country can hit the U.S. mainland. The view is shared by U.S. analysts who say a stretch from Los Angeles and Chicago now appears technically within range of the North's weapons.J July 30: The U.S. flew two B-1 bombers over South Korea in a show of force after North Korea's missile test. Vice President Pence said the U.S. and its allies plan to increase pressure on North Korea to end its nuclear program. "The era of strategic patience is over," Pence said. "The president of the United States is leading a coalition of nations to bring pressure to bear until that time that North Korea will permane ntly abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile program.” Aug. 1: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States does not seek a regime change in North Korea and would agree to a dialogue with the secretive nation if it abandons its nuclear weapons program. Aug. 2: The U.S. Air Force successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile from the California coast. The unarmed Minuteman 3 missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, about 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles. It was the fourth such test this year. Aug. 5: The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved tough new U.S.-drafted sanctions against North Korea that include a ban on coal and other exports worth over $1 billion. Aug. 6: China's foreign minister urged North Korea to halt its missile and nuclear testing, one day after China and Russia joined with the United States in the U.N. sanctions vote. Aug. 7: North Korea responded to the sanctions by saying it would launch “thousands-fold” revenge against the United States. Aug. 8: Trump lashed out at North Korea. saying the rogue regime risks "fire and fury like the world has never seen" after The Washington Post reported that the communist nation has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles. Aug. 9: North Korea threatened a missile strike on the U.S. territory of Guam in the South Pacific, where the U.S. has military installations, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

    Transparency labelling/pricing

    If companies want to make use of people's social conscience to push product, then bravo to them. It's capitalism at its best. I'm generally skeptical with regards to forcing business to comply with arbitrary regulations but I'm sure there's no harm in them being made to add more information in the back of the box in the interest of informing the consumer. We already have a full list of ingredients in the back of products to fulfill a similar purpose. Just make sure it doesn't get out of hand and overly specific.

    Video games and environmental issues?

    Wasn't the God Wars Dungeon revealed due to all the players burning logs causing global temperatures to rise? I seem to recall reading that some where.

    Video games and environmental issues?

    I think the only way to successfully solve the e-waste problem is to make their recycling a financially viable business. There's plenty of videos online (like the one below) of e-waste recycling plants that harvests the precious metals in discarded electronics and turns the rest into raw plastic and metals that can be sold. A few even rehabilitates perfectly usable machines and sells them for the cheap. I think one ton of shredded computer parts can sell up to 6000+ UK pounds depending on the material. I would be fine with giving startups like these a long tax holiday of several years to encourage their development and growth. Not only would it be good for the environment, it also would produce economic activity and jobs.

    Video games and environmental issues?

    I would rather not have political and social agendas shoved down my throat when I'm trying to escape reality via gaming. i did not enjoy the whole #Gamergate controversy and I will not enjoy Greenpeace trying to police my games. I place windmills in City Skylines because I want to and not because I was told to, damn it! Welcome to Sal's btw, CIN_47! You caught us at a bad time with the whole forum being upgraded and all. I really hope you stay. It's been ages since we had a good debate here at the Debate Room.

    Upgrade: Report your bugs

    Well it's not Asian anymore if that's any help. Just a bunch of place holder symbols everywhere. I've also noticed that the Sal's Realm Runescape news bot ( our most active user) has stopped posting updates. The quotations over at the mobile version is insane BTW. That's a screen shot of the "Last Person to post here" thread. I mean, it's s fine for several replies but it really piles up after a while. q

    QUICK SAL! Take the site down NOW! GO GO GO GO!

    The upgrade

    Runescape Blue or NOTHING! Feel free to send me your Steam Account so I can compensate you somewhat and help pay for the new theme man. I don't have a working PayPal so that's the best I can do.

    The upgrade

    Yeah, same here. The signature images are''t linking properly though. I would just like to take this moment of crisis to plug the Sal's Realm NationStates page that me and Demon Jelly (or whatever he calls himself these days) created. Do you have a few minutes of your life to waste on a satirical political simulator? Then create an account and join us today!

    Sal, if you want to take the site off for a few more hours, we're totally cool with it. EDIT - OMG, I love the new notification alert and the emoticons page needs a bit of work .
  13. Phoenix Rider

    The upgrade

    Happy Birthday to our dear lilshu btw. EDIT - Oh and i just noticed that the menu for many of the old codes like tagging members and spoilers are missing whilst the codes themselves aren't working. I'm sure Sal would have this sorted in a couple of days though. isn't working a Fatalysm, you helped design the old site right? I suggest you PM Sal or something. You're prolly one of the best people right now to give him a status on things and maybe give him some help.

    The upgrade

    I hope everyone made it here okay. Can someone please post on the main page that the old usernames are no longer valid and that everyone should log in using their last Display Name? I've noticed that a lot of the custom images aren't working like my Distinguished Member badge. The codes for the signatures are also sorta messed up. Here's wishing Sal the very best with this site update.
