Back when I frequented these boards, we took pride in being an accepting place to minorities, people with different backgrounds, and those with different sexual preferences. Now it seems we have created a forum called "Richard's White Games." The minority community must truly be offended by this gross error in racism and general unkindness towards our brother who may have been born with a different color skin, but who still deserve the same respect as we give to the Caucasian peoples.

You are a bit mistaken. "White" clearly it is an appeal to those who are albino or extremely pale, rather than to those of us who are Caucasian as we are closer to "Pink" or "Creamy" than "White".

You're ruining it.

And I think this forum is quite offensive already, without the whole "White Power" thing going on as well.

To make matters even worse, this Richard guy is obviously dead. Why would a dead guy make white games? White games are difficult to play, even after fiddling with the contrast on the screen. Maybe there is something different on the Mac, but us Microsoft slaves prefer our blue games, with the pretty hex code describing how badly we failed at multitasking.

Please adhere to the definite differences between a white game and a White game.

That said, Richard is not dead. He just has an 50% probability of being dead at any given instant.

Actually, you're missing the subtleties of Richard's White supremacy (or is that Richard White's supremacy?): his games are actually white papers, except their games.

—Alorael, who deduced this from trying to think of what else could produce as much aggravation and suffering and difficulty as the games pertinent to RWG. The answer was immediately apparent: the government! The conspiracy is even more vast than was previously thought!

I could not agree more. It seems that everyone in here is either white or Caucasians. I call upon the minorities’ power. Let us get together and re-name the forum; it will be called Richard Minority Games. Besides, it fits quite well with his games.

Is Richard caucausian (sorry if I misspelled the name) really dead? Or is he UNdead? If he is dead, i hope he is dead, and not an undead. (God, I really HATE undead. they give me the creepes. And when you stand on their remains after slaugtering them, you hear this unnerving sound of bones that crack. *shiver*).

I think instead of "white" we should say "color-challenged".

No, the words we should use are obviously "differently pigmented".

"Different" can be a bad word, though.

Chromatically unique.

Wow, so that's one, two, three, four... Four non-color-challenged people here. Wow. Really makes you think, huh?

As far as you need to know, I'm plaid. And striped, too. It's unfortunate.

You know, Richard Minority Games makes sense in some ways - they likely are among the minority of the games sold by Spidweb. How about a compromise: Richard Minority Supremacy?

That colour is either Vahnatai, Slith, or Drake. Definitely nonhuman. Food for thought.

Aren't the colors bytes, 0-255? 256 is not byte territory.

I was thinking of photo enlarger colors, only confusedly. Firstly, I don't think the notation applies that way, although it might. Secondly, an enlarger has white at R0G0B0.

—Alorael, who will note that further research revealed that R100G100B100 is "gigawhite of doom" according to the settings of Orbital Death Platform #77F6. And who is he to argue with an orbital death platform?

I imagine R100G100B100 would be a greyish colour. Perhaps Alorael meant to imply that Richard White is in fact Richard Grey?

... actually, that would explain an awful lot.

Yeah, but may we'd better switch RW's color depth to 16-bit, in which our white is R65535 G65535 B65535. ;)
