Someone made a browser game about it:

http://www.decisionproblem.com/paperclips/index2.html

At first it is basically a tycoon game where you optimize your production of paperclips, but eventually you develop it enough to be huge and you convince your masters to let you go...
Ofc that turns out to be a horrible idea and you follow your exponential growth trajectory to the edge of the galaxy and beyond.

You can take your time and let it run slowly in the background while you do other things and only occasionally check in on the game. But the universe will be consumed by self-replicating paperclips far too quickly for comfort even if you take it slow :wink:

Mostly a game that has you work on production chains, has a bit of combat too, but mainly it is a fairly realistic educational tool about how easily the AI can go rogue and how deadly it is
This is oddly addicting. It's like I'm creating the SkyNet of paperclip computers.

Welcome back.

I take it you are back for classic? How is life btw?

Also this place is pretty dead these days, but discord is quite alive if you want to hear from more ppl. Someone can give you a link to it I am sure.

It has been nearly a decade since I came to SoL, I like the overall atmosphere here and has learned a lot here. It is a bit sad to see some posters gone and the forum turned cold overall. The Discord has become the place for us to enjoy. I've had some good time as well.

But there is a limit for everyone, I'm done with the discord after those established "rules". Maybe I will still post on the forum sometimes, that's all. Thanks for everyone who had supported me before. Nazja I have nothing against you!

Slow decided that he didn't like restrictions set on the discord, so he left after going on a tirade that included calling Anansi retarded. That's all fine and dandy, his prerogative to leave before we banned him for abuse... until he decides that he's going to start posting about it here. Neither space is his personal playground, we've told him that ad nauseum, but he felt that both were rallying points against "mod injustices." The moment he decided that he wanted to start a war between two spaces is the moment that he belongs in neither.

So, bon voyage SPK.

Oh, and also, I deleted his fap garden of photo albums. The thread he made to post "pictures of beautiful women" was always a thinly veiled spank bank, but organizing it into albums, including an entirely separate album for Liv Tyler is just disgusting.

Seems extreme to ban him over that one post. It is not even like it is provocative or calling for a crusade. I motion for him to be allowed to remain on the forum until he such a time as he earns himself a proper ban. Discord stuff is well discord stuff and I don't care about that.

Wasn't slow like literally already evading a ban from forever ago?

To be fair, the ban was not really justified back then if I remember correctly. Not that it matters much, never understood why Slow felt the need to keep coming back.

I have talked to Slow after he left the Discord and was banned on the forums.


He has told me that, while he enjoyed his time on Scrolls of Lore, he only remained on the Discord and forum due to nostalgia and has no wish to return.

Aaaaaaah this is the kind of random shit that made this place so funny. I don't see that anymore when I come to lurk in this graveyard of a forum every couple of months. Oh well, I guess we all move on. Thanks for the laugh, Cantus.
