So I actually agree with your point (minus the part where you physically want to gauge my eyeballs out), but it's still not going to make me vote Dems. Maybe if the Dems were actually perfect and I agreed with their policies, but I just supported them previously because they're "better than the Republicans". I'm tired of the BS, so now I'm camp third party. I don't expect you to change your mind off the Dems either, but I just wanted to give you a better idea how I got here.

I'm waiting for the full student debt relief and pardons for everyone currently jailed for marijuana. It's better than nothing, but not enough to change the slow decay. Third party or bust.

The hivemind in this comment is strong. When you lose in Rock Paper Scissors, do you "blame" the other person?

Whether or not you blame Trump's supporters (who want the credit for a victory) or Communists (who want something new), you don't gain anything.

Really? Because in the last 40 years, we've had a mix of Republicans and Democrats in power, yet here we are. Something's got to change.

As someone born October 8th, 2023, I agree

(Also, in what way were the Oct 7 events not addressed?)

Unreal is heavy, and while you can make games without any coding knowledge, it's more for super fancy 3D games.

Unity and Godot are a bit simpler and more casual. Unity is ripe with issues and Godot is a little more immature. I would recommend Godot if you care about open source/community vibes, or Unity if you want more powerful features.

I wish there were better 2D or 2.5D dedicated engines, since imo most games don't require 3D to be cool, but I don't personally know any good ones (RIP Flash)

This is so obviously bullshit, but I looked it up anyways. The closest source I could find was this page which claims a black male born in 2001 has a 1 in 3 chance of going to prison.

So yea. Don't lie, it discredits your cause.

It actually looks really cool. I ran Lineage for a while and it was great, but I do enjoy projects that don't fully degoogle as well and give a more "modded" experience

[-] [email protected] 24 points 4 days ago* (last edited 4 days ago)

Because most of us want projects with users, and there's a lot more users on GitHub and Discord than Gitea and Matrix

I must have missed the memo - What is Haveno Reto? It looks like it's just Haveno with a couple config changes and pointing to the mainnet? Why is there no info about this in the readme?
