Hey, Mastofriends, I'd like some help/feedback on a thing.

I'm building an open source platform for hosting web comics. I want it to be safe and usable by as many folks as possible, out of the box. But before I get too far into a rabbit hole of difficult-to-change design, I want to ensure I consider all the options users would actually appreciate in a community platform like this will be.

Linked below is my current list. Thoughts?

If anyone still follows me, out there, and wants my PoGO friend code, here you go! Just message me here or at one of the accounts below, so I know whose requests are who!

"Yeah, so I found out my new house is haunted."
"You know who you should call? Ghostbusters!"
"Oh? Do they have an email address?"
"Just call them!"
"Ah. Can I text them?"
"No, just call them."
"Um. Never said I minded the ghost. It's not that bad."

I’m reading a book on wilderness navigation and chapter two is about maps. It has confirmed my suspicion that maps are cool as fuck and very good.

I've said this before (see retro.social/@danhunsaker/9977), but it bears repeating, and hopefully I said it better this time.

I really hope I don't have to start doing everything for folks who aren't prepared to look things up themselves. Just because there are hundreds (if not thousands or more) of references I could link in these posts doesn't mean I should have to be the one to track them all down for that purpose. Any more than any minority should have to pull up references for their own lives.

PSA and reminder:

The terms "blacklist" and "whitelist" are racially charged. Stop using them.

Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.

"But it's tied to darkness being scary and light being friendly!"

So is racism.

"You're just virtue signaling!"

I'm repeating what Black folks (and even some PoCs) have said multiple times already, about _their own lives_.

@Sylvhem Hm, not sure for the rest of your followers but I view promo posts from sex workers in the same way as illustrators promoting commissions or crafters promoting their jewelry Etsy store. And I don't mind them at all.

I know I'm not here as much as I used to be. I'm not here as much as I'd _like_ to be. But I found a really cool thing, and I wanted to share it with you:

This seems to be especially useful for folks living between the Gregorian and Hebrew calendars, though it's also super cool for folks who just really like calendars. I happen to be one of the latter. More on that elsewhere.

Advancements in technology frequently mean miniaturization, where you get the same capabilities in a smaller package, so my conclusion is that house cats are the most advanced cat
