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_.

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.

Check it out, and help it manifest!

Running the absolute latest code, again. I've recently been given collaborator access on the official repo, so it's easier to keep up with changes and requests, so hopefully I'll continue to ride the wave of The Latest Thing™.

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

Last Boost: Seriously, check this one out. Turn looks amazing, and the stretch goals are unique and honestly I'm impressed at the breadth and variety being considered, here.

Mostly, though, you owe it to yourself to check it out, share it with friends, and if you can, pledge to support it. 💜

Thanks for listening, and you're welcome in advance.

Turn is a slice-of-life supernatural roleplaying game about shapeshifters in small towns, who seek balance between their beast & human identity & find community with other shifters and mundanes alike. We're funded but pursuing stretch goals! Check it out: kickstarter.com/projects/briec

Ends November 30!

Here's a post about the new home I need to get before I can go live. Help me out and chime in?

Forgot to mention, emphasis on the User Safety section, since most of the rest is covered by standards like OWASP and WCAG and all the stuff put out by the W3C I18n Activity. ☀

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?

are you a robot or otherwise synthetic intelligence? do you love your friends? do you want a single emoji to express both of those things simultaneously?

📣PSA 📣

Please add descriptions to your images.

There are visually impaired users floating about the federverse and they deserve descriptions.

A simple description of "airplane" or "cute Kitty" is sufficient. You can do more if you like, but at least add a succinct, basic description if possible.
