    Kind of weird, we have to spam our referral links everywhere before we can get in? Seems worse than google circles. Well anyways, here is mine: https://wt.social/gi/tabitha-negchleh/friends/n2km

    I really mean software that intentionally lifts PBP (and/or play by email) into a better experience than just repurposing a message board.

    Vaguely yes, but it doesn't sound accurate. /r/SmugIdeologyMan, like smuggies for people who aren't openly racist/homophobic/transphobic. It's a left leaning meme sub.

    Is this for diffs or for merge conflicts? Meld is much better than VSCode for merge conflicts.

    Its tongue in cheek, talking about people who are obviously extreme far right trolls with bigoted agendas, but claim to be "centrists" and try to pass off blatent racism as "just facts".

    I'm the only active mod on a sub that specifically criticizes far center fascists and I'm worried about what will happen if it grows 10x or 100x its size. Automod has been pretty good though so far.

    I think crystal could really benefit from some more examples. I wanted to do something with postgres but the examples were "last updated 2 years ago" or non existing.

    "There are team games" does not instill confidence in me there is a good design around 3v3s or 5v5s like LoL.

    Starcraft reached a critical mass and when it became outdated, it's weight held down the industry. It was common for new games and old players to dogmatically double down on engine limitations and caveman mechanics that excluded and alienated new players, casual players, and even sometimes just anyone outside of the elitist esports echo chamber.

    EA also did a lot of damage.

    But then LoL happened. I think what's missing is a game that is casually 3v3 or 5v5, like LoL, but still an RTS.

    I read somewhere else that, while this is good and important, it's also not even close to enough.
