It is a good kind of hate, the hate of fascists, and they are bad people. People who hate fascists are better than people who support fascists. Right-wing is made up of fascists, or people who tacitly support fascism.

Very vaguely related, I had a somewhat-friend in college who told me about her, her twin, and her year younger sister would fight constantly all the time. Imagine 3 close aged kindergardeners just constantly at each other's throats when you were really not ready. They were so fed up that they went into the kitchen placed the three of them in equal distances away from the center, and then gave them each a knife and said "Go! If you hate each other so much, kill each other!"

The all started sobbing and hugged each other, and got along a lot better after that.

That's...def trauma territory, but, it's an example that human instinct to divided resources (emotional attention from a parent is REQUIRED for children's psyche) isn't darwinian. America specifically touts Survival of The Fittest as THE default human psyche and I find that it's just not true.

I always like the soft clicks it made when communicating on the internet, after the screaming noise, when it settled down. Soft hum of the computer and little clicks as I read a forum post.

A reminder that there are many firefox forks that exist if base firefox is adding unwanted things or you might have different wants, but sites will still "see" firefox in terms of compatibility. I'm using Librewolf with some annoyances (it doesn't let things fingerprint to the point that it can't even get your current time), but overall I like it.

You can attach an audio file to a post on mastodon and it gets an embedded player. Just federate a compatible audio file?

They spoof numbers. It almost always is a number from my state or the area code, very rarely do I get calls from out of state and they are all already labeled "spam risk/telemarketer" when they come in.

Also thank you for writing this comment, I was going to say ios had no way to block unknown numbers, but I searched to double check myself and they finally do have that option! It may have been around for quite awhile, I hadn't checked for a long while.

What is it about short vertical video that makes people froth insanely at the mouth? Don't "china" me on it, people whine over youtube shorts, instagram reels, they poopoo on snapchat, loathed twitter stories, and thought vine was a stupid idea. It feels like an ancient redditor thing, but I was in the 11 year club too and it's just a different type of format for media, media which can be used in many different ways, as always. Like how internet video generally is different to TV.

If you are sending the links through discord/chat with embed add vx in front of tiktok and it becomes playable in discord itself. (https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT8b81Gu1/ -> https://www.vxtiktok.com/t/ZT8b81Gu1/)

In a removed move, a normal tiktok link will have a play button on the icon like it should play, but can't. This one actually will.

jokes aside, it's just not a really attractive title.

I've played 48 hours in one of the games in there, Traveller's Rest, about running a tavern. It has money, supply, employees, trends etc. But I'm not enjoying it because Yay Capitalism! It's because when you're running your own cute shop with virtual money it's fun. I do like the genre, but being reminded of the systems that are causing a lot of real world shit is just a bad title.

But I guess "Business Sim Sale" wasn't flashy enough.

I have no type of economics experience, but what if representatives of a demographic of people should be paid the median wage of those people, with high punishment for corruption and bribes?

If they would like to earn more, they should lift their states's lowest wages. This goes down to all levels, a mayor of a city only earns the median wage of the city. It is a civil servant job after all, it shouldn't be glamorous.

A quick present for my friend who got a new design! He loves persona, so that's why there's that posing. (Which is why it doesn't make sense that he's pulling on the hand like a glove, but it's still cool!!)

Yesterday, we released new Branded Content Guidelines that impacted your ability to work with sponsors to increase your income from streaming. These guidelines are bad for you and bad for Twitch, and we are removing them immediately.

Sponsorships are critical to streamers’ growth and ability to earn income. We will not prevent your ability to enter into direct relationships with sponsors – you will continue to own and control your sponsorship business.

We want to work with our community to create the best experience on Twitch, and to do that we need to be clear about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. We appreciate your feedback and help in making this change.

You can read our updated Branded Content Policy here: https://t.co/H04y9FrJtZ

People are pointing out that the support page has changed, but the ToS has not been updated yet. However, I assume it would have to pass through legal wording first.

When I finished Pokemon Scarlet, I thought about a fun group picture with everyone. It took me awhile to actually get to this, but I did enjoy it! There's a lot of rough parts, but it was interesting to try and only use GBA colors. I also got it displaying on an actual GBA!

In addition, this is the tweet that made the initial rounds and I think sparked this. https://twitter.com/zachbussey/status/1666111039736258561

What do you think of this? What also do you think of twitch's statement that they simply were unclear?

I decided to start this community, as you can guess, because of the twitch drama right now. I have a small circle that is talking about it, but I realize the depths of these discussions would be well suited for things like lemmy. I don't really know if there's a huge amount of people here who stream (or like watching streams), but I thought I'd make this in case there was.

I aim for this to be both a fun place and a good resource for information related to streaming. It seems like there might be more tech shakeups happening, it could effect livestreaming, and it would be nice to have a place to go when news like this hits.

The feedback/help I'm looking for is:

  • complete collection of open source softwares and platforms/sites. I'm sure there's some unknowns.
  • should we make guides for starting streaming on different platforms and link them in the sidebar?
  • agree on how and when self promotion can happen. I dislike when it's so strict you can't even allude to yourself or show a VOD, but if this became a dumping ground of self promo posts it would be awful.
  • any neat suggestions?
  • are you going to have any issue with us discussing camgirls?

I probably can't get a new phone super soon, but it's been quite frustrating how little support there is for iOS versions of open source software I've been slowing moving towards or investigating. I absolutely get why though!

I have the capability to understand complex topics but it takes me quite a few tries to really get it, so I'd like some help or recommendations of things that aren't "just use linux". (I am slowly dipping my toes by using WSL for things, though.) I am always searching for software, but I've never been active enough in communities to ask for personal recommendations and be warned of short comings. Obviously if you find recommendations, they want to look the best to you and hide their faults. I do try and research as much as possible, but like I said, I can get confused or not understand the drawbacks or full level of manual work/environments needed to operate at times.

Mostly I'm looking for day to day things that I can operate from my windows computer, but can also connect to my phone, assuming I get an android next. (Librem phones looks cool, but switching carrier providers is not feasible for me at the moment.) The boring things, like calendar, email, notes (I do use obsidian already). But if you'd like to gush about your daily drivers, I'm all ears!

I was looking through old website memeories, and the pixel art doll bases that were popular on gaia online and deviantart came up, and one of the most popular creators, kawaiihannah, still had her site up! It's been about ~15 years since I ever did one, so I did it!

This is using the Minute base from kawaiihannah.

I don't mean my username! Yours!

I guess this is more of a game and maybe not strictly the right place. But, the idea is to make a top level reply with you asking 'guess' or saying ':)' or what have you, and everyone else should answer what they think the username means or refers to, without looking any words or concepts up! Off the cuff, what do you think it means when you see this person's username?

Not sure about the mobile apps, but if you hover over someone's name in Lemmy it will show their username if they have a display name set. My username is quite boring and straightforward, but I like seeing other people's weird usernames especially on semi-anon places.

Bonus: What do you visually think when you read it? Even if you misread it as a typo, what did you imagine when you read it & saw their avatar?

edit: good to know lemmy's treatment of gifs is terrible. please look at the larger preview, haha.

secondary edit: not using lemmy's built in gif uploader helps a into not making a video, but it doesn't animate now. I can't win. :/ see animated
