I know some of you still go to school and haven't got to the subject yet. But here's a pointer. 
Remember to keep it civil ay! :cap_like:

I need to ask: What does that have to do with gameplay?

 

(and where is that question covered in the pyramid)

Because there is allot of debates going on on this part of the forum. 
The pyramid is the Hierarchy of Disagreement. The bottom one being the lowest.

Making a thread condescendingly instructing people how to debate, because you've gotten into an argument in your first thread.

 

Classy, but you're not as subtle (or intellectual) as you think.

That's classy ?

If he actually made a thread with actual text and explanation or a tiny bit of work and stuff I'd have agreed. But he googled an image and posted it. That's lazy and definitely not classy.

You've chosen a somewhat odd way of presenting it, though.

 

I mean, the pyramid as an illustration is typically used for subjects where you have some form of important foundation, with things becoming less important the higher you go up. E.g. the food pyramid, Maslow's hierarchy of needs etc.

 

So what you're implying is that any debate should be built on a solid foundation of insults and ad-hominem attacks :cap_cool:

Don't come around here with your Colourful Triangles telling everyone what to do, pal. 

 

Do you know who else gave out coloured triangles?
