this is an issue with social media in general not those specific platforms

The way to be nice that is presented here seems so passive-aggressive to me. Better than being outright mean, but still

it is So Fucking Slow. i can’t use it for more than 10 minutes without it slowing down to the point of unusability

Ah, I see your point now. I still think it’d sell the wrong idea since it just causes centralization, which is a problem that platforms already deal with, but now I see its potential usefulness as well

But this isn’t the case with “usual” social media stuff either, why should it be the case with the fediverse?

Also just like, they are decentralized. You can’t tell dozens upon dozens of different people to “hey, make ur instance’s design follow these arbitrary rules thanks”

Hi! I don’t know if self-advertisement is ok in this community, please tell me if it isn’t and I’ll delete this post. This is a game I’ve been working on for the last week and I’m not fully certain it’ll go anywhere, but it has a small community already, so I figured its worth showing it here …

Same case as Fakefunk, I have my own fictional world set in the year 2500. I don’t really care about how the world is doing, but there’s this small, human-made island operated by sentient machines that is what i call a “utopia in the works”. They’re trying to make a utopia, but they’re not quite there yet. One thing I do know about this world is that “zero world countries” are now a thing, that is, countries that reach post-scarcity. The island this worldbuilding is focused on is one of those.

My friends have called them the intersection of transhumanism and buddhism, and solarpunk with a cyberpunk aesthetic

All the dictionary definitions for the word dozen say “a group of 12”, which isn’t decimal-centric at all. Like I said, being able to express a definition with decimal digits doesn’t make it a decimal definition. I could just as easily say that it’s “a group of 20”. The definition doesn’t change, it’s just that I’m using base 6 now. Does this mean that it’s a base 6 definition? No, it just means that I can use base six to express it

Anyhow, doesn’t seem like this is going anywhere lol. I guess it’s just a matter of which words you prefer

  • you can also say that a dozen is a group of 1100, does that mean that a dozen is a reference to binary? of course not, that doesn’t make any sense. just because you can use decimal digits to write a definition doesn’t make it a decimal-centric definition. duodecimal is decimal-centric not because of its definition, but because it’s literally “two(duo) ten(decimal)”

  • there are a lot of ways to count to 12 with only two hands. some with only one hand

The problem with “duodecimal” is that it’s in base ten, which makes it unfitting for a community centered around replacing base ten

Not just technology, I can’t remember anything I learnt on school besides like basic mathematical operations. Everything else they tried to explain I had to learn on internet

This. This so fucking much. It looks so weird to see so many different programs named basically the same

Thing I did as a test for a possible webcomic I may start…

I have a thing for magical realism and surrealism. When I write, I try to build on top of ideas that already exist, like a common metaphor for the topics I want to deal with, usually twisting it and making it feel like experiencing a dream

I don’t know where this approach is on the “based on existing work” to “make it up” spectrum, tho

Not gonna lie, I generally hate music that doesn’t have this kind of repetition, but music that overuses repetition also sucks. To me, there is something like “too creative”, and music without this tends to have it

Yeah. I think it comes from different experiences and different associations with those experiences

Here’s what I think The Funny here actually is: It subverts the expectation of the reader up front (as long as they are familiar with «facts and easter eggs» images that use this similar format) by showing them this format, and then presenting them with something beyond blatantly obvious

Here’s what my brain associated this meme with: Yknow that time when everyone and their mother used facebook? There were pages that kept posting fun facts about marvel and they looked exactly like this. I think this image is making fun of them running out of actual facts

Oh this is interesting. I may submit something. But first I’ll read more about them to be sure what I’m getting into

What is this? I know what they’re seeking but idk what this is

A Hexagonal Slab Of Wood is a book written by fictional Baishu player Raokji Cîang, in which he talks about how he came to know the game of Baishu after escaping from his town in Hrastaiqua, and how he came to see the magic in it while learning strategies to make the game interesting, and then to wi…

Does peertube not have a way to play videos in bucle?

If it does, how can I find it? Right clicking only shows this …

To do numbers like 10 and up, I use the other hand for the dozens place…

A community for people who enjoy using base twelve and prefer it over base ten…

To start this, I feel like pointing out that Zhanbun gender is not native to the Zhanbun (which I tend to call zhan so I’ll do that here). The zhan originally didn’t have a concept of gender inscribed in their society, it came to them when some people got obsessed with media from other cultures and …

I’m experimenting with Godot shaders. This runs pretty smoothly even on my shitty computer that can’t even run Minecraft. What do you think?..

Took me a few hours to finish this…

Official Laiqbun Matrix Space

We have made a space for the Laiqbun community, with a room for the language itself, a room for off-topic conversation and a room for discussion about the fictional culture…

It tries to explain most of Laiqbun basic grammar quickly, and I think it’s best used when people can explain you what things are supposed to mean (which are what the discord server and matrix room are there for). I’m pretty proud of it…
