I am just saying that, if something is so cruel you can't see it, how can you justify contributing to it? I apologize if you don't like this thread.
I don't dislike this thread.
Some people, regardless of being anti-meat or not, can get triggered by these images, and I'm not talking about just finding the images gory, but to actually get sick just by seeing them (like passing out in a worst case scenario).
People have their reasons to eat meat even when they know what's behind the scenes and don't want to see it, reasons which you can not agree with, and it's okay you are against it. Why do they eat meat, then? There are a good number of arguments (money issues, difficulty on eating something else, etc.) which, again, you can disagree with.  By linking the images people can make their own judgement if they are able to see these images or not. I don't think raising awareness with these images is bad, but it's not worth to make someone feel physically sick with it, even if it's for a good cause, so if you link them and someone doesn't want to click on them, then you can continue debating by text.

Cooked food is different in that regard. In my opinion it's because it no longer fully resembles a dead animal. A steak doesn't look like a cow, for instance. A cooked codfish might still look like a codfish, although it doesn't have or have little blood, so most people are comfortable seeing  it. Some people can get nauseous with the sight of blood. (I'm not discussing the ethics of eating animals, just answering your question on why most people don't mind seeing pictures of them cooked)

@thegenericbanana I have turned one of your pictures into a link because it contained animal slaughtering, along with a disclaimer. We don't want to disturb people with that kind of imagery if they don't wish to see it.

King dropped their "candy" trademark request in the United States. It's still active on Europe, which is still uncool from their part and I hope that they will reconsider and stop applying for the trademark in there too.

Irock said that making money from someone else's idea and making games for the money was bad. His game is free, therefore he's not contradicting himself.

I just wanted to say that I'm currently selling my new novel "60 Shades of Green", which is totally not based on that other novel and I'm totally not doing it for the franklins. If you prefer a different book I'm also selling "The Cuckoo's Sign", which is also not based on Rowling's work and I'm not doing it for the money.

The paperback version of both cost 15$, buy now!

Oh, I didn't knew there was an option for that in Settings, disabling it did solve my issue. Thank you. =)

I wish the next iOS version has an option to disable autocorrect. It's bothersome enough for those who write in a sole language, let alone those who write in more than one. (I write in Portuguese and English depending if I'm searching, writing a note, etc.)

They are copyright trolls. Candy is a common English word, it's silly that they want to control its use on titles. Furthermore there are more games with "candy" on the title before Candy Crush Saga. (like Bullet Candy), so it's even more ridiculous.

reskinning delenda est

my opinion is the same as justin's. there are activities that are more rewarding, both monetary and creatively. for instance by reskinning a game, new graphics or music are going to be used. if you are an artist or a musician: instead of launching a reskinned game you could do art or music for a dev in trade of money. if you are a programmer you could code someone else's game. that way you could get profit while not resorting to reskin an older creation.

intervalo's ratings were alright. I'll need to improve on some categories for my next LD games. That said I'm happy to see it on #9 for Innovation and this was probably my best LD entry.
I'm totally going to participate on next LD.  8)
