2023.05.30 23:43 MagnificentBaller Relationship Banker- Salary?

Hello all,
Recently i’ve applied for a relationship banker position with wintrust financial at two different branches here in the midwest.
I had an interview and they advised the salary would be $20/hr + incentives at Location 1. I’m set to have a second interview with this branch manager tomorrow.
Shortly after, I applied for Location 2 because they need a Bilingual Polish speaker. I applied and just had my second interview with the regional manager. They mentioned the job pays $20/hr with NO incentive. Is this normal? I feel like i’ll be missing on a nice additional monthly bonus. They have a lot of Polish speaking customers in the area and I feel like i’m being taken advantage of by not receiving incentive..
I have a bachelor’s in Crim Justice and Psychology. No prior banking experience, but I do have customer service experience including working at a PI law firm. Trying to work my way into Fraud.
Any advice appreciated. Cheers!

2023.05.30 23:41 OnlineDandy Are there measures in place to protect this subreddit from the rest of the website?

The moderators of this sun have always been pretty helpful and consistent, from what I’ve seen. When someone’s post isn’t flaired, one of them will give flair it for them instead of making someone who’s trying to pour their heart out worry about their post suddenly being taken down cause they made one tiny mistake.
What I’m worried about though, is reddit as a whole and their strange hatred towards victims of circumstance.
One of my worst fears is that this subreddit gets infiltrated by moderators who seem to understand the assignment at first, but then eventually start turning it into every subreddit where you’re not allowed to rant, you can’t be too nuanced or you’re “in the wrong subreddit”, you can’t tell off someone being rude to the OP or you’ll get banned for something vague like “hateful rhetoric” regardless of your tone, and can’t even ask simple questions about moderators without it being purposefully misinterpreted as criticism, resulting in a ban, posts being removed for breaking loose interpretations of something included in a long list of rules on a sidebar that no same person with a day job would have the time to read, etc etc etc.
If there aren’t already (and I don’t wanna insult the mods intelligence here, I feel like they’ve already had this discussion before) then there should be. I already know this subreddit has a huge target on its back, because of course it would.
Do you really think the kind of people who run most of Reddit would allow the victims of child abuse to speak freely about their experiences and get support by expressing their pain? There’s no way. They want this place flooded with overbearing hall monitors that make it exceedingly difficult to post, while coincidentally letting posts that are invalidating and confusing to slip through the cracks.
This is the only subreddit left I know of where my own posts are seen and responded to, and not taken down before it can get any attention. I’m sure it’s the same for everyone else as well. There needs to be some kind of assurance that this sub won’t become like the rest.

2023.05.30 23:41 Dankaub Is it possible for internationals to get a legal job in the UK? (P.S. I think it's not)

Good morning colleagues. I am in quite a turmoil right now as it appears hard to secure any legal job whatsoever. I came from Kazakhstan, and currently, I study a master's course at the University of York. Despite not having a UK bachelor's Degree, I do have a bachelor's in law that I acquired in Kazakhstan. I am not sure whether it is possible to secure any legal position in this country, considering that I am not originally from it.
I should say that my background is quite strong. I would most likely graduate with a 2:1. I have at least 3 places where I worked as a legal intern back in my country, and I can speak 3 languages, what else a hiring manager can desire (kidding)? But yet out of all submitted applications (approximately 23-30), I have never been invited to any interviews. Therefore, I started to think that maybe I am not going to find any legal job at all.
If you found yourself in a similar situation, or at least you know anything about the legal market, please write your thoughts down. I'll appreciate any answers, no matter how hard they will be. Much obliged!

2023.05.30 23:41 MElaineyG Need advice—how do I stop people pleasing and start living as my authentic self?

I(26f) realized something the other day, I’m a very lonely person. But I think it’s my own fault.
I grew up in a very intense religious household in a culture I’m realizing was harmful and misogynistic in a way that stunted my development as a person (ex. I was told at age 11 it was a sin to get my ears pierced because “my body belonged to my husband” and I couldn’t make any changes to it without asking for his permission which was difficult, again, because had not met him yet at 11 years old).
I was luckily able to get away and gain more independence in college. I kept my personal faith, but was able to divorce myself of the culture. I discovered I loved research and writing and wanted a career in public policy. I became active in local politics. I found a ministry that I loved—serving adults with intellectual disabilities, building relationships with them, and including them in all levels of participation & leadership in the church. I came to terms with my bisexuality and had my first girlfriend, as well as my first relationship with a man where we weren’t “waiting for marriage”. I went to therapy. I got into law school. I moved across the state and began living my dream. Now I’m studying for the bar and about to start my first “real” job as a staff attorney for a disability advocacy group pushing for better policy outcomes in our state.
All of that is great, and I’m proud of myself. I love who I am and what I do. I know what I believe and why I believe it. But it can be a weird time.
I’m not out to my family back home. I’m not sure how they would react, but my friends who came out when we were growing up had a bad time. Like a cut off from family, kicked out of the house, hit & abused at home bad time. My family is so important to me, and they are kind and compassionate people. They’re generally more accepting than others, but they’ve surprised me before. I just don’t know.
I’m too religious for my political friends, sometimes I try to downplay it at work because it can make me sound naive or not intellectual enough. I even had a coworker admit to being nervous to talk about her wife around me because she knew I volunteered in ministry.
I do still volunteer with a branch of the disability ministry I worked with in college. I mentor 2 young women in their 20s and I occasionally lead a bible study and speak at events. The church I work for knows I’m bisexual, the church doesn’t endorse LGBTQ involvement in ministry but they’re fond of me and they recognize how important this is to me. We have a deal that as long as I stay “closeted” to this group/in this setting I can continue to lead. I know that sounds crazy but this is the deep south and parents would pull their children out of the group if they knew who was teaching. No other disability ministry around has this kind of community support and this much funding. And besides this one caveat, leadership trusts me enough to let me organize new programs and change what disability ministry could actually be. I’ve been too busy to date much anyway and this feels worth it to me. At least for now.
I’m out to my work friends and people from law school but not to most of my friends I do ministry with. I want to date someone who shares my faith, because stubbornly through all this bullshit I still love Jesus, but if it’s a girl my life is going to get really complicated and that’s an astronomical amount of pressure to put on a new relationship so it’s hard to even go on a first date. If it’s a guy I meet through church, he’s probably not going to be cool with the fact that I’m queer. But my faith is something that is so central to my life I can’t imagine ending up with someone who doesn’t get that.
I feel like I can never fully relax. I am constantly censoring myself only to hear from others that I come off as “stiff and awkward”. At this point my life is full of so many secrets and weird omissions I feel guilty even thinking about it. People who consider me a close friend don’t even truly know me. It’s not like I haven’t tried to be honest before, but it always leads to hurt and rejection and pain. It has literally never once gone well.
I just feel like a fake. And I’m so stressed but I feel like I don’t have anyone I can actually go to for advice because I’m the only one who sees the whole picture. It’s lonely and I think I’m genuinely ready to make a change but I’m overwhelmed and I have no idea where to start.
I am open to any and all wisdom—especially from someone who’s navigated this before. I know it can’t just be me. Let me hear it, thanks. 🤍

https://twitter.com/drunkdqz3d/status/1663540854965895168?s=20If you don’t know what’s going on there’s a whole thread about a fan who treated enhypen’s sunghoon like trash in a fan call. She basically made fun of him/mocked him during the fancall and you can tell by sunghoon’s body language he felt uncomfortable by that fan😬. Engene’s made a mass email to belift because of this fan’s gross behavior. But speaking of belift where was the staff when this fancall was going on like hello???? I really don’t think fan calls should exist because of these reasons I’m scared another idol will be attacked by another fan’s behavior to them😭😭. I hope that fan who treated sunghoon like trash will be banned from these fancalls😐
Edit: (If you scroll down to the replies of this thread there’s a English translation available)

2023.05.30 23:40 Humble-Plankton2217 If you were unknowingly infantilizing your child with DS, is there anything anyone could say to you that would make you want to change your parenting strategies?

My SO treats his 10yo daughter with DS as if she is a 2 year old baby. Complete with ALWAYS extreme baby-talking to her - every word, co-sleeping, encouraging infantile activities and even occasionally feeding her with a spoon like a baby.
These are just a few examples of his overall behavior of treating her as if she's never aged beyond the toddler stage.
This child is perfectly capable of learning many things when taught with patience, repetition, reminders and encouragement. When she learns something new and does it herself, she is visibly quite proud of herself. I point this out to him constantly - her abilities and her being proud of herself for learning new things. I showed her how to fold washcloths and put water bottles in the fridge, and he admonished me and accused me of forcing his child to do housework. I was just including her in what I was doing, and she was enjoying herself and very proud of her work.
It's really the baby talk especially right now - it's like nails on a chalkboard to me. The high-pitched phrases "yummy num nums, is that food so so yummy? Do you need to use the potty?" I do not speak to her that way. I speak to her like she's 10 and she understands me perfectly. She is mostly non-verbal but has EXCELLENT receptive language.
What can I say to this wonderful, loving, caring man that would make him re-think how he sees his daughter's development and growth as a person? I do not want to hurt his feelings.
But if he doesn't stop baby-talking I'm gonna have to re-think my relationship with him. It's gotten to that point, unfortunately.

2023.05.30 23:39 Rude_Nefariousness32 I love my ex but I hate how he is.

We still talk and he’s trying to get back with me. I don’t find him that attractive and every time I speak to him he pisses me off over small things. He acts like he’s a gangster but he’s middle class from the suburbs. He acts like hes better than me and that I’m lucky he speaks to me and it seriously get to me sometimes.
I’m pretty sure he’s tried to initiate a second relationship during our time together but he tells me that I’m crazy. He’s horrible to people online. He’s expressed some really horrible opinions about certain groups of people. And as a person, I think, he’s really nasty.
He tells me that he treats me like royalty but I’m always upset or angry with him when we talk.
However I can’t cut contact with him. I literally keep coming back no matter what he does. I’ve felt like this for a year now.
People keeps saying that I should leave him and I honestly agree, but I cant stop myself from replying to him messages or sending him a dm.
I blocked him for like a month but I couldn’t function.
I know this is bad of me but it would kill me to see him with someone else. And I know it’s wrong and I’m being jealous but I don’t know how to handle it.
This whole situation it wearing me down.
Anyways, I need advice on how to move on. And how to prevent myself from going back to him.

So what's everyone's prediction now that Lukey is gone?
♤ it's over, he's not coming back
◇ they'll be engaged by the end of next month
♡ she's going to be knocked before we know it
♧ the most epic spiral to date incoming
☆ jombo for Jesus.... again
¤ probably another boob job
I haven't decided yet. I'm betting the Wallen's are not happy. I would be a mix of furious and heartbroken over what she's doing to Indie. Theres nothing wrong with a single mom dating, but i love you after 3 weeks? She's going too far with all it... then there's the slur. Can you imagine what would happen if MW said that?! I think she manipulated him in to staying as long as he did because she was scared they'd break up if he left. I think he chose her thinking he would get close to MW. I really don't think KT sees MW that much and the nanny does the picking up and dropping off. Thoughts on all of it?

2023.05.30 23:39 DistinctBam Oh sh--. I convinced my friend group to try out WH3.

AMA Now what?

I'm in a weekly game group and we cycle through games about twice a year. I honestly adore WH3, it's fantastic and worth to at least try once. Obviously I keep yapping about how great it is, never expecting more than one to even give it an honest look any time soon.

Now all 4 of them bought the game at the same time and I don't know how to introduce them to it.

Like, how do you even coordinate a 5 player game night? Start a massive IE co-op campaign? Start a smaller map and go free-for-all? 2v2 with 1 neutral faction on the Cathay map? Multiplayer slog? Just all take Chaos?
But that's just the thing - most of them bought only WH3, no additional content. One of them followed my recommendation and bought WH2 for the high elves as a starter faction. The others will have to play with what WH3 gives you... and that's not a great selection for a beginner in the current state.

For our first run, we'll probably just go for any ol' faction that speaks to them, toggle co-op and play a few turns to get everyone up to speed on the basics. We should be enough players to outweigh the massive dip in diplomacy for the first couple of turns. No idea on what to do next.

Any ideas, tips or experiences are welcome. How to best play in a bigger group? Note that only about 1-2 people will give the tutorial a go. That's just how we roll. Cold opens to most new games.

2023.05.30 23:37 ClassicPhilosopher4 Post-op struggles

Hi everyone! So I've been lurking here for a while (about a month, actually) and I believe a lot of the posts here have gotten me through some rough anxiety about my health. About a month ago, I had what I called the worst pain in my life. Shaking, sweating, stabbing pain my abdomen. I couldn't even speak while it was happening. Went to the ER, sat there so long that the pain subsided and after a CT scan, the doctor told me I had gallstones. There was nothing he could give me, but he referred me to a surgeon that night. The surgeon was affiliated with the hospital, should have been easy to get an appointment within a week. That did not happen. In the meantime, I struggled with loss of my appetite, nausea, heartburn, and intermittent abdominal pain. I was miserable. Ended up going to my GP, but it took a while with scheduling, and he referred me to another surgeon. I went in for a consult/scheduling and got on his book for surgery the next week. The very next night, I had another attack and ended up back in the ER. They did repeat scans and an ultrasound, wanted to admit me to the hospital but ended up (at the suggestion of my surgeon) discharging me with medicine for pain and nausea. They made no attempts to tell me the condition of my gallbladder, other than a nurse mentioning I had both stones and sludge, but my surgery got moved up to the next day.
I know that was a long story, but my surgery was Friday. It's been four days and I've already ended up back in the ER. I had such intense back pain and a crushing pressure in my chest that I was checked for potential infection, but that proven to not be the case. I'm on some very low dose pain medicine that is not helping at all, but my surgeon only sent in more despite me not getting relief. I wanted to ask if it was normal to still have this type of pain after four days; like I will go to sleep and wake up extremely uncomfortable with both back and side pain. It still hurts to breathe deeply or yawn, but when I tell someone, it's pretty much dismissed as being nothing or that it will go away in time. I'm really trying to do what I can to make it day to day, so I needed to vent but to also inquire about how others have made it through their recoveries.

2023.05.30 23:36 jules99b A History of Ice Dance, From the 1950s Until Now: A Long Form Series -- Part 1

Hello all! It’s the offseason and for some reason (probably cuz I'm insane but I feel that's implied at this point) I got inspired to write up a history of my favorite figure skating discipline: ice dance. This is a project of love. I don’t pretend to be an expert in all things but I like to think my time as an ice dance fan has given me a good amount of perspective and the ability to view the current state of ice dance within the context of what has come before and what has influenced the current state of affairs. All of that said, I’ve decided to highlight eras in ice dance, mostly by Olympic cycle, to bring attention to ice dancers who have had tremendous impact on the sport as well as to appreciate how far ice dance has come in its 70-year history. I’ll be posting this on Tuesdays and Saturdays (in ET) for everyone to read and take in at their own pace to pass the offseason by. Without further ado, here’s to starting this passion project.

Part 1: Early Beginnings, 1952-1980
I debated back and forth whether to separate these years out further given the sheer amount of time covered. However, the complete lack of footage for a vast swath of the World Championships that occurred from 1952 to 1970 was the ultimate decider in realizing that those years simply needed to be included in this grouping of years in order to be worth posting. This, of course, also colors my assessment of this era. But I hope to bring an objective view to the early beginnings of ice dance.
The first World Championships for ice dance were held in 1952 in Paris, an addition 44 years in the making. Nine pairs competed in front of 7 judges for the honor of becoming the first ever World Champion in ice dance, an honor that ultimately went to the British pair of Jean Westwood and Lawrence Demmy. It’s unclear what exactly was competed at that first Worlds. The placing system simply asked the judges where they felt a couple should place, added the numbers up, and posted the standings. For example, if all 7 judges placed a couple first, the pair would have 7 points. So it’s hard to tell if more than one program was ever performed.
Although footage for this first Worlds does not exist, we are lucky that footage from Westwood/Demmy’s 1954 win in Oslo was preserved to some extent. The first thing to strike a viewer about Westwood/Demmy, beyond the fact that the music from the event was not captured, was the extended use of the Killian hold, an emphasis on synchronized leg movement and lines, as well as the slower and purposeful movement across the ice. This was early ice dance. The goal for couples in the 1950s and even 1960s was to translate ballroom of the time onto the ice as best as they could. On top of that, we see some early staples of the discipline, like close holds and synchronization, take root almost as soon as the sport could be judged.
The 1950s and 1960s featured a short period of British domination in ice dance, briefly interrupted by a 4 year span where the Czechoslovakian sibling pair of Eva Romanova and Pavel Roman took home 4 titles. Watching this pair, it becomes clear how the sport changed in a short amount of time. Romanova/Roman keep in the spirit of Westwood/Demmy before them but now feature quick changes in hold and more speed than their predecessors. Or at the very least, this is the first recorded instance where this is captured accurately. And while the music is not captured here, given the change in the style of dance, it is likely that music and tempo changes were a requirement at this early stage. This is corroborated by the first ice dance program whose music was captured, the winning program from Diane TowleBernard Ford in 1966. An interesting note in TowleFord’s program is the introduction of small lifts, spins, and Towler’s switching of positions over the ice, lying nearly flat on the ice at one point. The program features 3 music changes.
You may now be wondering how a discipline so intrinsically linked to the Soviet Union and Russia can have been left out of this write up for this long. Well, you don’t have to wait any longer. The reign of British dance came to a screeching halt in the 1969-1970 season, when an Elena Tchaikovskaya coached team of Lyudmila Pakhomova and Alexander Gorshkov earned their first world title at the 1970 Worlds. The 1969 World Silver medalists became the first in a long line of Soviet dancers to stand on the top spot.
Pakhomova/Gorshkov were primarily known for their more dramatic style. As seen prior, ice dance had been steadily becoming more athletic over the years, increasing in speed and difficulty as the years went on. Pakhomova/Gorshkov were among the 2 pairs (alongside America’s Judy SchwomeyeJames Sladky) who really emphasized the athleticism that the event could contain. On top of that, Pakhomova/Gorshkov often picked music that was dynamic and allowed Pakhomova to shine as a performer. Their style is especially apparent in the compulsory they originated, the Tango Romantica, where the dramaticism of the tango is just as important as the tango movements. This was the early stages of ice dance becoming not just a transition of ballroom onto the ice but also a performance in and of itself. SchwomeyeSladky meanwhile were a tad more traditional, adhering more closely to the origins of the sport and its roots to dance. The inventors of the Yankee Polka themselves (now I am conflicted on how I feel about them haha) featured numerous music and tempo changes in their program to cover multiple forms of dance in a short amount of time. Controversy started early in ice dance’s history, as many felt Gorshkov wasn’t as strong a skater as Pakhomova and the American pair of SchwomeyeSladky should have won in 1970. Alas, figure skating judging seems destined to generate controversy. Worth noting here, the first compulsory dance that has a record of being competed was in 1968, which makes Pakhomova/Gorshkov and SchwomeyeSladky among the first to medal with the new required dance. Also worth noting, the 70s saw a lot more variety in holds, with closed holds being the predominant hold but side by side hand holding also featured in programs along with parallel skating.
It's around this time that SchwomeyeSladky began to advocate for the inclusion of ice dance into the Olympics. In a New York Times article from 1972, Judy Schwomeyer was quoted as saying that ice dance was a different kind of sport that used different muscles but the athletes worked just as hard. The pair had skated on Olympic ice when ice dance was presented as a demonstration sport in 1968, with the IOC president in attendance to evaluate the validity of the sport for Olympic competition. They must have made a decent impression, as the IOC approved ice dance as an Olympic sport to be competed in 1976. Although SchowmeyeSladky didn’t make it to compete on the Olympic rings, their demonstration of the sport’s potential for the Olympic audience was hugely influential to the subsequent inclusion in the Olympics.
The 1976 Olympics marked the first time that ice dance would be viewed by the general public and the forerunners were Pakhomova/Gorshkov, who had won 4 world titles by this time, after not attending the 1975 Worlds. This didn’t stop them from standing on top of the Olympic podium for the first time in Olympic history. Their free dance featured numerous dance style, music, and tempo changes. These dance styles included blues/jazz and tango among others, with an emphasis on big movements that drew attention rather than necessarily strictly translating ballroom to ice. Rather, the “vibe” of the dance, so to speak, was of more import to Pakhomova/Gorshkov than performing movements that were reminiscent of ballroom choreography.
Although Pakhomova/Gorshkov were synonymous with 1970s ice dance at this point, it was the 1976 Olympic silver medalists coached by Tatiana Tarasova who appeared to have more of an impact on the dancers that came after them. Irina Moiseeva and Andrei Minenkov won the 1975 World title in Pakhomova/Gorshkov’s absence and swiftly won the 1977 World title after the Olympic champions’ retirement. Moiseeva/Minenkov were a striking pair and I feel like their programs were some of the first where really interesting stuff was happening choreographically. If Pakhomova/Gorskov emphasized the dramatic, Moiseeva/Minenkov cranked that up to an 11. If there was a time to point to when modern dance started seeping into ice dance, this is likely the pair to point to. Still under the rules of the time requiring multiple music and tempo changes, Moiseeva/Minenkov often opted for holding positions across the ice or repeating positions across the ice. Their balletic quality was in sharp contrast to the couple who had just retired as well as the other couples who had dominated in the same time. Where previous couples emphasized sharp movements, Moiseeva/Minenkov emphasized soft transitions. The style was interesting and exciting, but ultimately only won them 2 titles by the time they retired in 1982.
Instead of the aforementioned pair, it was a young Natalia Linichuk/Gennadi Karponosov, coached by Tchaikovskaya, who quickly rose up the ranks to claim 2 World titles and the 1980 Olympic title. Linichuk/Karponosov are who I like to affectionately name the most forgettable Olympic gold medalists in ice dance. Unsurprisingly given the shared coach, their style was similar to Pakhomova/Gorshkov’s, with the emphasis being on sharp, strong movements on ice and the required music changes being used to really draw attention to this (including…what I can only describe as rodeo music).
This era ultimately ended with a slight preview of what was to come. Krisztina Regoczy/Andras Sallay were the Olympic silver medalists in 1980 and decided to end their career at that year’s Worlds. The team coached by Betty Callaway had an inspired free dance, that incorporated music that was similar across the board with different speeds instead of drastically different music like their Soviet competitors. The stops necessitated by the switch in music were incorporated into the choreography to make the free dance more seamless. And while these are things we take for granted now, watching this program compared with the offering from Linichuk/Karponosov really draws these things into sharp focus as innovative for the time.
As if to emphasize a swift changing of the guard, as Regoczy/Sallay walked off the ice at the 1980 Worlds, ready to accept their sole World title and the first non-Soviet World title since 1969, a fellow student of Betty Callaway waited rinkside to congratulate Regoczy on a job well done. Her name? Jayne Torvill.

2023.05.30 23:36 O_pv Some small things PD could change that would improve a lot my gaming experience. (And maybe yours too)

We all know that GT7 is not a perfect game, it has its problems that we always complain about, like rigged roulette tickets and lack of races with good payouts. However, what annoys me most about the game is not even the big fishes, but little things that could be easily solved with a few changes in the interface during races or even in the menu, and I would like to share with you to see if you have the same issues.
Pit Stops
This is a pretty common complaint I've seen around here. The fact that there is no way to cancel a wrong choice at pit stops has bothered a lot of people. Particularly I never suffered from this, but it's something that also makes me uncomfortable, mainly because it's something very simple to be solved, like simply putting a cancel button.
Livery tool
Creating liveries is still one of the things that I enjoy the most in the game, it's very intuitive and although I'm still quite inexperienced with it, I can already create several designs that I'm proud of.
However, the lack of some tools annoys me a little, like not having undo/redo buttons to use if I made a mistake, and also an eyedropper tool, so I can get the exact color from a logo, for example. Damn, even Paint has these tools, why not add to GT7?
Organize your garage
I don't know if you like to keep your garage organized, but for me it's almost essential. Something that would be very simple to add would be the possibility of adding "tabs" to organize your cars and help you find them quicker.
For example, I have a number of cars that are Fast and Furious replicas, others that are Initial D replicas, some JDM cars, some famous movie cars... And sometimes to find them among more than 300 is really a dull A simple option to be able to put them in these folders besides only add them to the favorites tab would help a lot.
Customizable Championships
Creating custom races can sometimes be a good thing when you want something different from the same WTC700, WTC800 races, with the same cars and the same fucking Miazono's, Beauvois', Hizal's... So why not add the option to create your own championship too?
As a FIFA player, I'm already used to seeing this kind of tools in games, and for me this is missing in GT7. I would like to create a mini Formula 1 Championship, or maybe a SuperGT championship, something more complex and longer than just a single race.
"You can join an online league." Yes I Can. But I'm not the biggest fan of online racing, for several reasons. I still prefer to play offline, and for those who are like me, I believe this type of option is also needed.
Using different liveries for the same car
Speaking of custom races, a nice change would be to add the option to use different liveries for the same car when you pick it up straight from your garage.
For example, if I wanted to create a formula 1 race, I would have to use 10 liveries from 10 different racing teams. If I wanted to be more precise, I would have to do 20 different liveries, to add the driver number as well. Which would imply that I would have to buy 10 or 20 Super Formula cars, spending 10 or 20 million.
Instead, I could just buy a single SF car and create 20 liveries for the same car, then choose which livery each car will have at grid time.
I know that many people try to do something similar by creating custom races, and have to buy the same car a hundred times. So it would be really nice if they added that option.
Increase the amount of collector levels
Simply 50 levels is pretty easy to beat. I must have hit that mark before I even got 100 cars in the garage. Now over 300, this feature has become useless. So why not add 200+ levels? or at least put the maximum according to the amount of points you would have if you bought all the cars in the game? It would be something much more interesting and would reward the player more committed to having all the cars in the game.
Daily marathon shouldn't be... daily.
We know the real reason for the daily marathon: to encourage the player to play the game every day. The point is that because the Roulette Ticker is rigged, this is quite demotivating. Who will want to run every day to earn the same 5,000 Cr.?
If changing the roulette system is out of the question, the best thing would be for the feature to stop being daily and could be cumulative. For every 42.195 km run, the player would win a new roulette ticket, being able to win more than one per day.
This would encourage the player to run more races per day, as well as compensate the player who does not have time to play every day, only on weekends.
So what do you think? Do you think my suggestions are valid? Please let me know.

2023.05.30 23:36 6Sex6Haver6 Saint-Saens concerto

So I've been mostly self taught for about five years (had a teacher for a few lessons at the beginning who I realise, in hindsight, didn't actually play the cello and was ripping me off) but recently started with a new teacher who's teaching style I love. He seemed surprised at how much I'd achieved with self-teaching, although I'm formally trained in musical theatre so I had a significant head-start with ear training and rhythm.
I was getting frustrated with the saint-saens concerto about two years ago but recently revisited it and was half-expecting my teacher to tell me I'm not ready and to work on technique first. To my surprise, we jumped right into the first movement and I'm having an absolute blast with it. Making steps with playing the piece "in character" so to speak, is the greatest sense of achievement I've had since i first started playing.
For anyone who's played at least the first movement, is there anything you wish you'd considered or prepared better for going in? How long had you been playing when you started this piece? Could you recommend any recordings? Are there any relevant etudes you feel would assist me?
