  1. I appreciate you clicking 2 buttons to create a forum account and another 10 minutes typing out your strawman blockchain ponzi and NFT scam argument thats been heard repeatedly over the past 10 years.

    Users can continue to use Tatsu for free even after our switch to a decentralized backend architecture! I'm not sure what you know about blockchain but not everything is an art NFT scam. This has nothing to do with financial incentives more than it has to do with our shift to a new technology.

    Also - we are not middlemen filling our own pockets with the hard earned sweat and blood of creators - WE ARE THE CREATORS. Almost all the art for Tatsu was created by us from scratch instead of being STOLEN PROPERTY like all the other top bots you see out there. If you have so much time complaining about our backend technology switch why don't you go complain about every other top bot that uses truckloads of stolen content and generates 100x more revenue than us?

    And don't even get me started on supporting creators - how many hungry artists and game developers have you seen by now, huh? Get off your high horse and stop pretending to know what supporting creators mean. If even 5% of our users paid us 5 bucks a month we'd be getting enough money to pay everyone a decent salary but nope!

    We're grateful for all the people who help out with our community and also those who have funded us. We're running on a shoestring budget paid for by a tiny subset of people and subscribers who appreciate what we're doing and want to see us take Tatsu to the next level. If you consider losing money and being cashflow negative every month since 2015 some kind of capitalist strategy I gotta applaud you, we're doing it right. We feel a strong sense of responsibility to our community and the people who have been with us all this way that's why we're sticking it out.

    It's easy to type from behind a computer screen - It's a different story when you're actually a part of it.

     

    Now on to the technical aspect:

    Tatsumeeko literally works the same way as it currently does now, just that the underlying technology is swapping to the Solana blockchain to facilitate a decentralized architecture.


    Here is how we're using blockchain:
    - Instead of data being stored in a centralized database like we currently do, it utilizes blockchain to keep a ledger of all transactions and allow users to do what they want with their items

    - Users can transfer their items to each other and do what they want with it - completely independent of our oversight

    - The current player trading economy becomes owned by the community instead of by us

    - No, we are not using blockchain to sell overpriced 10000USD pieces of art to kids in a gigantic ponzi scheme like you like to think

    - NFTs literally just mean VIRTUAL ITEMS ON THE BLOCKCHAIN not PONZI SCHEME ART PIECES

    - Decisions will be made by our community through a consensus voting mechanism completely TRANSPARENT because of the blockchain so people can influence our development decisions

     

    Also, like it or not, people are already trading items for real money in Tatsu against our terms of service. When theres a demand there will always be a supply. If you had to deal with the number of scam reports we couldn't do anything about you would be in a more understanding position. We're making it safer for users to conduct these transactions by legitimizing it through the use of blockchain.

    Just like outlawing prostitutes and sentencing people to jail for possessing drugs won't stop people from doing those things, neither will banning people from trading virtual items for real money. People will do it anyway, so its better to provide a safe environment where they can do so.

     

    As the leader I recognize the shift to decentralized technologies from a centralized architectures. Not everything using a new technology has to be some kind of scam or capitalist invention. If i wanted to I could just ban you, delete this thread, let you quit and nobody would be none the wiser (literally how many people do you see being angry about this? Almost nobody!) but I am doing my best to explain these technologies because you are a user too.

    Blockchain and crypto is simply a technology, and just like any other technology, they can be abused by bad faith actors. I hope that answers your concerns.

    Sincerely, David

  2. We understand your concerns regarding the environment and agree that many blockchains burn the rainforest! However there are others like Solana which do not impact the environment any more than a web server. As with all new technologies, the pioneers will naturally not be perfect but the technology will always keep improving. 

    Solana uses up less power than an American household in a year, globally.

    Regarding blockchain being exploitative, bad actors are common where regulation is lacking. This however should not stop us from embracing new game changing technologies (no pun intended). With current technology, digital ownership of virtual items has always been somewhat of a shaky concept  especially when these were just things stored on a database prone to manipulation or server faults. However, with blockchain issues like these become a thing of the past, providing security, transparency and fault tolerance. There are many bad faith projects out there, but there are also as many equally good ones.

    We do not intend to scam and exploit our loyal users and if we wanted to do so we would have done it many years ago, not wait until 6 years later. The blockchain ecosystem may not be mainstream now, but it definitely is on the path to being a key technology that will change the internet. Hit me up if you'd like to learn more about blockchain, we'd be glad to answer.

    My very subjective opinions:

    NORTH-BALCONY: There's a lot that I dislike about this house: the half-step (?) with the mat that cuts off any flooring you use, the useless cabinet thing that's just taking space that could be used to place furniture of our choosing, and the not-so-great furniture slots. I love the window with the green view outside, though. Redesigning the entrance room would be a major improvement.

    True and we're aware of this as well. We'll take a look at the current slots and see what we can do about it.

    Just a simple suggestion, the ability to filter out certain voice channels from being logged. We use the voice channel logs publicly and it creates issues sometimes when we enter the staff channels

    This suggestion has a solid use case, however we're waiting for our design system to be completely updated so this feature unfortunately can't be added anytime soon. We'll keep this in mind for development after our design system is completed.

    I think this is a good suggestion, but with the forum getting wiped soon this  so disappear. If ya post it up again, lemme know.
