Now you can mark any OkCupid Match Question as a “red flag” in the Predator Alert Tool for OkCupid.

Whenever you see a Match Question that irks you, click the “Add to my red-flags” button. From there, choose which answer(s) concerns you, and click “Save.” Once saved, the “Add to my red-flags” button becomes an “Edit this red-flag” button, and clicking it reveals the “Edit your custom red-flag warning question” popup box.

The Predator Alert Tool for OkCupid also turns every Match Question title into a permalink, so you can click the question itself to go to the question’s own page. Share the question page’s URL with your friends to alert them of the existence of Match Questions you think they should add to their PAT-OKC custom flag sets.

For instance, the question in the screenshot example above (“Do you have a problem with racist jokes?”) is number 65, so its permalink is http://www.okcupid.com/questions?rqid=65, which you can get to by clicking the question itself. I’ve flagged people who answer “No” to that question, because fuck racists and their jokes.

The Predator Alert Tool for OkCupid is one of a suite of Predator Alert Tools. The newest one is the Predator Alert Tool for Facebook. Every Predator Alert Tool is free software, released to the public domain, and created by survivors for survivors.

The BBC has announced plans to digitise the entire library of Shakespeare content it has in its archives in time for the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death in 2016. The footage will then be made accessible free to those in education and learning in the UK.

Some of the content might be restricted by rights issues, but the vast majority will be available to schools and the like. It includes television shows, radio plays, scripts, stills and production notes and is believed to be one of the largest collections of materials in the world.

“I want to really celebrate Shakespeare in 2016. We’ll find the gems in our archive: our extensive television and radio collection of Shakespeare’s plays and poems, programmes about Shakespeare, as well as scripts, stills and production notes,” said BBC director-general Tony Hall.

“We will aim to make these available to schools across the country. Where rights allow or through BBC Store, we will make them available more widely still.”

The details on the archive and its rollout will be revealed in due course.

How to draw folds

Notes on how to draw folds back when I was teaching manga classes back in 2006. From the book “Drawing people” by Barbara Bradley.

http://www.amazon.com/Drawing-People-Portray-Clothed-Figure/dp/1581803591

This book has a very detailed description of 6 types of commonly seen folds and I think is one of the most educational resource on how to draw folds(Besides Vilppu and Bridgeman).

這是我以前教漫畫課程時給學生看的講義.來源是芭芭拉布莱德丽的”着装人物素描”«上海人民美术出版社出版».

書裡講解了皺摺形成的兩個主要原理(拉扯與擠壓)以及因兩種作用力下形成的六種常見的皺褶類型.
