anyone have any alternatives where you can log in? unlike newpipe or skytube


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 Moloch is a very hard platforming roguelike where health is not health points, and instead, it consists of several conditions that are somewhat simulated and that can result either in a softlock or a death. Yes, being soft locked due to being hurt is part of the experience. It borders the line that separates rage games from the rest. My idea for the project is to make it be frustrating because of how easy it is to die, and not because of how hard it is to use the controls. I tried my best to make the controls as responsive and smooth as I could, so that the game feels good to get good at. It is inspired by Noita and Rain World, the former being the one that inspired the roguelike elements and the wands, and the latter being the one that inspired the way I'm handling the difficulty and health. *In any system optimizing for X, the opportunity arises to throw any other value under the bus for optimized X*

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

Does peertube not have a way to play videos in bucle?
If it does, how can I find it? Right clicking only shows this ![](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/x2jBNhhTLm.png)

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 from other ages. To make it more analogous to our society: In zhan society, gender is a weeb thing. Also they're post-scarcity transhumanists on the year 2500, which also has an impact in how their ideas developed here. So, it originally started with three labels: baoq, zaeq and daaq. These roughly translate to female, male and non-binary, respectively. They didn't have a native intuition for what these labels mean to us, and those who were invested in the history of gender didn't particularly enjoy the concept, so they just went with whatever felt right. A thing to point out though, daaq, just like non binary, is an umbrella label. It's a slightly different one for two reasons: Xaiq is another umbrella label that is roughly equivalent to xenogender. It's people whose gender doesn't allign with baoq nor zaeq, and it's not defined by the presence or lack of those. For example, if someone said their gender was ran (fire), they would fall in the xaiq label, not the daaq one. The way the word non binary works, we'd see xenogender as a label within non-binary. This is not how it works for the zhan. And the other reason: See, in our society, gender is kind of the default. I mean, at birth the doctor screams "its a boy!" or "its a girl!", and I don't actually know what happens when you're intersexual. Huh. But this isn't the case to the zhan. Like I said, for the zhan, gender is this weird thing the weeb kids are into. Not everyone has heard of gender and not everyone wants to participate in it. There's a word for that: gauq It's easy to translate gauq as agender. But there's a subtlety there that doesn't translate well. Agender is, at least for most people, opting *out* of gender. A zhan who is not immersed in our history would think of agender people of daaq (or xaiq), not gauq. To put it simply: agender is an empty box, gauq is the lack of a box. Here's the flags **Baoq** ![](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/QrC9e07eN3.png) **Zaeq** ![](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/yermxVBAmq.png) **Daaq** ![](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/UpbEHxTTQA.png) **Xaiq** ![](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/S05wdGcyjT.png) **Gauq** ![](https://sopuli.xyz/pictrs/image/Ds63eAp8xV.png)
