    I do not have the permission itself, I would have moved it if I was able to.

  4. Rooster Teeth employee Ryan Haywood stepping down and Adam Kovic possibly going the same way

    Recently it has come to light that Ryan allegedly abused his position as an employee to exploit fans. Ryan is stepping down in the chaos: https://twitter.com/RyanTheTwit/status/1313598106081132547...

    Recently it has come to light that Ryan allegedly abused his position as an employee to exploit fans. Ryan is stepping down in the chaos: https://twitter.com/RyanTheTwit/status/1313598106081132547

    Images and videos released of Adam Kovic were released showing him performing sexual acts in the Funhaus office, as well as some other things. Kovic will likely be fired or resign.

    Recent videos featuring the two were either deleted or edited to remove their appearances/voices.

    This is a sad day for Roosterteeth fans and the coworkers who admired them.

    That's fair. I don't send this link to anyone when they say "hi", I will be polite. It just saves both people some time when the question is asked either right away. Even if I reply "I am unsure, sorry. maybe ask ____" or something similar, then they can just copy their question from what they asked me to send to that other person.

    Fair enough. I just believe it is proper to use exact links except when the site needs a special link to bypass a paywall, or use Outline when the site is littered with popups and clutter.

    I changed the link to the direct site. I really appreciate the concept of NoHello. It's annoying to wait for people to ask their questions.

    The box around the "X votes" goes away when you have voted on it. It also turns purple for me, but maybe that's just my browser doing visited link stuff.

    If you use it on Bluetooth it will automatically sleep after ten minutes of inactivity, but they are quick to turn back on. This behavior can be disabled afaik, it is someone in the manual (if you can't find it there look online and also at the reviews on the Keychron site, the people there give lots of tips).
    For switching between machines you can use the key combination to switch, but you will have to push the switch between Android/Windows and Mac keyboard layouts. If you don't have one, I'd suggest getting a palm rest since the deck is quite high and it can be strenuous to reach up there for me.

    I use the Keychron K4! The default keycaps are not as brown as they appear in any picture I can take with any device, but I prefer it as the more dull brown.

    All your statements apply to the K4. My only real gripe is that it doesn't have a printscr button, but I can just use Win+Shift+S for that. I was really impressed with the quality of the build. Even though mine has a plastic chassis (the Gateron Brown switch model with white led backlight is fully plastic) it is quite sturdy while also being light.

    In my time of having it (nearly two months?) I've only had to charge it once, and I didn't even try to top it off with a charge before using it! Then again, this is different for everyone based on amount of usage and if they want tons of backlight effects (I use it with them off).

    Well, the US is a clusterfuck. Many places "require" masks but don't enforce it, or are not able to do anything about the various parties and stuff off campus grounds. For K-12 students, many schools are online only or a mix of online/in person.

    For colleges, it's the same story.

    Here's a Reddit post about the lack of masks on Iowa State's campus. This video actually makes me really sad for my country and how this is what people around my age think...

    Other colleges are much better, and the one I recently moved into my dorm for is very strict about masks and sanitation. I have yet to see anyone disobeying that, and I do feel relatively safe here.

    As long as your comment isn't outright offensive, keeping it up when it has 0 votes is a good idea since that way the question or idea doesn't really get asked again unnecessarily. And since there isn't a karma system on Tildes, there's nothing wrong with keeping it up!

    For the most part, I delete comments when I'm being daft or when the comment is super old and I no longer agree with the sentiment I stated.

    Edit:

    If noone agreed with what I had to say and upvoted contrary answer, then what I said wasn't valuable to anyone

    Just because people disagree with what you have to say doesn't mean it doesn't have value.

    I still think it is unnecessary to ask that. It's awkward enough when the doctor asks, even more so when it's some random form online with tons of my other info.

    I'm curious to know this as well. Several times people have asked for an Tildes app and get recommended to use Hermit. Currently I just use a browser bookmark when on mobile.
