Hi! Random thought, but have you considered adding a FAQ page? Because a lot of your asks are "what paint tool/program do you use?" "what do you use for animations?". It won't stop those questions completely but I think it will make things slightly easier for you
((And that concludes the first arc! Thank you so much to everyone who’s followed the blog so far and sent in an ask! This story wouldn’t have gotten off the ground without you, and I hope that you enjoy what’s in store! 💙))
((In the interest of keeping the front of this blog as story-oriented as possible, I’ve added an FAQ page to the blog, so please check it out if you’d like more info on this AU and who’s running it! Thank you all so much again for reading!))
I added a FAQs page! I try and answer every Tumblr ask i get, but sometimes they slip through the cracks, and i apologize. These are the questions that i get asked a lot, or ones that i think the most people could benefit from! PLEASE read these before asking a question! Any asks i get that are already addressed here will either be met with a link to the FAQs or will be ignored… if i’m feeling grumpy.
[[Just finished fiddling with a new easy to navigate theme and added a FAQ and a Rules page. The character pages are broken and outdated but they should be fixed or updated by tomorrow sometime ;^o. ]]
could u make a post about Tumblr alternatives? I heard of soup-io, ello-co, stampsy-com, medium-com, svbtle-com, tackk-com, sett-com, but which of them have things like search, follow with feed (dash), liking posts, REBLOGGING posts (called reposting on some sites lol), private messages, customizable blogs or profiles (html editor like on Tumblr would be great), and such? [plz just free and web-based w/ or w/o apps, not apps-only, cuz not everyone uses exclusively a smartphone for social stuff]
There are lots of free blogging platforms that can be possible alternatives to Tumblr. However, none of them are really exactly like Tumblr so they may not have all of Tumblr’s features. Here are some of them (in no particular order) including my first impression of said platforms and some of their features.
Hi everyone! So I’ve owed the many lovely people who asked about my GTA!Ryan cosplay this long over due post. I will be posting this in my about page as well for future references. If you have any more questions, if you could please come off anon and ask me that would be so helpful for the both of us. I will not be answering anymore anons about this cosplay. I’m sorry, it’s a little overwhelming.
Leather Jacket: I obtained a plain black Jacket from Goodwill actually, lucky catch right? On the tag it says it’s from Khols (Craft and Borrow is the brand name.) I have no idea if they still specifically sell this style but you never know. Google is your friend. This was supposed to be a temporary Jacket until I had the money to buy a riders jacket. One day. Regarding the details, again, it wasn’t meant for con use, so I didn’t try too hard, yikes. I used duct tape for the silver bits and painted on the blue.
Wig / Makeup:
The wig is a Hansel in light brown from Arda-Wigs.com (the ponytail piece not pictured is a ponytail wrap also in Light Brown) Both Items were trimmed and styled.
The makeup I’ve used for the skull makeup is a mix of Snazaroo and Ben Nye! (I already had the white lying around, might as well use it) Snazaroo can be found at any Michaels, when Ben Nye Creme makeup can be found online. I use makeup wedges to apply the white and red first, then I apply the black details with both a wedge and paint brush. (I can make a makeup tutorial video sometime in the future if requested.) The stubble is also ben nye and is the color, well, beard stubble. I apply that with a stipple brush. All bought online. Woo!
Contouring. I use Kat Von D’s Shade + Light contour palette. You can get that at most beauty shops.
I’m so sorry for this post being a little vague, but for all the lovely murderers people who will be cosplaying GTA!Ryan Haywood, I hope this information has been helpful anyways. and I would love to see what everyone does if they would like to share with me. Happy Murderween! (almost)
UPDATE 10/16/15: I added a FAQ Page! this post is now able to be found there.
MCU Ladies Week 2017: 12th - 18th February: Only 3 Weeks to Go!
Welcome to the brand new official home of the MCU Ladies Week. With only 3 weeks to go until this years event kicks off, I have added a FAQ page to this blog. If you have any questions or can think of something that I could add to it, please let me know, either here or over on @fuckyeahladiesofthemcu.
As always, here’s your reminders of the days:
Day 1 - Favourite Character - Tell us who your favourite female character is, and why. Do you identify with them in some way? Did they do something special that makes them your favourite? Tell us!
Day 2 - Unsung Hero - Who do you think doesn’t get nearly enough attention? Who would you like to see more of?
Day 3 - Favourite Scene - What is your favourite scene involving a female character? Do you have more than one? Are there any parallels between them?
Day 4 - Actor Appreciation - a day to appreciate the actors who make the characters come to life.
Day 5 - Favourite Relationship - Pretty self explanatory, a day to explore your favourite female (canon) relationship in the MCU.
Day 6 - Headcanons/AU - a day for exploring your headcanons for the characters and any alternate universe ideas you might have. The only day of the year I will post non-canon/fanfic stuff.
Day 7 - To the Future! - What are you hoping for from the new female characters coming to the MCU? Which characters would you like to see from the comics? What do you want to happen to the existing characters?
And if you’re stuck for inspiration, the last two events are archived over here.
Basically aside from Center Skills which only activate at the beginning of the live (and which I’ll explain later), each card has its own individual skill that can activate many times depending on the type and RNG luck! I’ll go through the different card skills first before talking about strategies.
Types of Skills
First, there are the scorer cards. These come in 3 different flavors, Perfect, Combo, and Timer.
This one is a Perfect Scorer. What this means is that the card activates based on how many Perfects you tap during the live. In this card’s case (though I wasn’t able to cap everything), every 18 Perfects, there is a 39% chance of your score going up by 440.
This one is a Combo Scorer. This means that the card skill activates depending on your combo. For this card, it says that every 20-hit combo, there is a 38% chance of your score increasing by 400.
Now in this case, this is a Timer Scorer. For this one, the card skill activates based on–you guessed it–the time that passes in the game. It doesn’t matter how many hits or misses, perfects or goods, or even your combo, it still has a chance of activating after a certain amount of time passes. In this case, the card skill says that for every 18 seconds there is a 36% chance of your score increasing by 540.
Then there are the perfect locker cards. The rules are the same as the scorer cards except that what these do is that they turn Bads and Goods into Perfects no matter how you mess up the timing! As long as you don’t completely miss the note then the card will turn it into a perfect during the time its skill is active.
if you see BAD以上をPerfect in the skill description then it’s a perfect locker! You can’t see those keywords here in this picture unfortunately but this card is also a Perfect Perfect Locker (that…sounds rly confusing I’m sorry) which means that the card skill activates depending on your number of perfects. For this one, every 15 Perfects there’s a 36% chance that Bads (and Goods) will be turned into Perfects.
Again, it’s the same rules as the scorer cards! Generally, for SSR cards the perfect lockers can guarantee 4 seconds of perfects and if you have more than one card, the skills stack! Here’s an example using the recent Danshi Tarumono Matsuri song:
(it actually was kind of difficult taking this picture…)
But here, you can see that the one timer that’s highlighted (Summer Tamaki on the left) is the one that’s active and counting down! If any of the other cards activate while Tamaki’s timer is still going down then it just adds to their frozen counter that will then light up when it’s their turn to start counting down!
Also remember that Center Skills are also very important! These increase the overall point value you get for every time you tap a note of that card’s attribute (Shout/Beat/Melody which you can tell by the color of the background during the live). Always make sure to have some type of SSR as your center and look for the word right before “UP” to determine how much your point value will increase! From weakest bonus to strongest it’s:
It’s also important to note that the earlier cards like the Outdoor Fes and Unit cards (the 大きく cards typically) only have a 50% chance of their center skills activating at the beginning of the song. The やや (it started with the Joker Flag Event SSRs and it’s now present in all new SR cards) have a 75% chance of activating and the かなり cards (all new SSRs as well as the Trigger Ordinary Days SSRs!!) have a 100% chance of activating. So this is important to look at when choosing your friend live assist too!
Team Building Strategies
First, you want to look at your strongest cards! The おまかせ button comes in handy here, as it automatically picks your five strongest cards in the attribute that you choose (strongest Shout, Beat, or Melody cards).
After that, it honestly depends on what kind of player you are. In terms of scoring cards, I tend to really like Perfect Scorers because my timing is usually really good and I can get the card skill to activate I like to try and combine this with a Perfect Perfect Locker (I need to find a better name for that) because the Perfect Locker helps the Perfect scorers activate more often. However, other people like the Combo Scorers instead because even if their timing is off, they still have that chance for the card skill to activate based on their combo (which is another reason why it’s good to try and aim for at least a Full Combo). Timer Scorer cards on the other hand activate the least but they also tend to be the strongest.
However, if you’re looking for help with combo requirements (for Kinako challenges or bingo cards) then any of the Perfect Lockers are what you need to use!
