    1. The Reddit COVID blackout has begun

      Since I have a handful of small subreddits, I decided to be inspired by the story of David & Goliath. However, there is a small chance that these communities will be taken over and/or deleted by Reddit. It would be heartbreaking to me if that happened.

      Conversely, I am more heartbroken that mis/disinformation is being promulgated on Reddit which leads to more precious human lives ending.

      I've been talking with the other mods, on a Discord server, and none of them put me up to this. One of the organizers tried to dissuade me.

      It looks like the rolling Reddit blackouts may happen through the coming week. Although, it will be up to the individual mods in every case.

      EDIT: This is the list of subs that are, currently, private. It will be updated when the rest of the subs join in on Thursday.

      EDIT2: It was just announced that all of the other subs will not be waiting until Thursday. They will all be going private over the next several hours.

    3. How to download photos from Facebook?

      So my spouse is getting fed up with Facebook and would like to download all of her photos and ideally any photos others have taken that she’s tagged in. She’d like to do a single bulk download, but is having trouble navigating Facebook’s intentionally confusing settings to do this. I don’t have an account and have never used Facebook beyond reading the occasional post a friend has sent me, so I don’t really know how to help in this case.

      This guide claims to be from 2021. Following the steps in section 3 we see something that looks very similar but not exactly the same under her settings. Where they have a list containing items like “Posts”, “Photos and videos”, “Comments”, etc. We see a different list and it doesn’t have any option for “Photos and Videos.” There is one section titled, “Short videos”, but nothing about photos at all. Has Facebook changed this recently, or does she have some weird setting that’s causing it not to show up? Or is the guide just wrong? (Or maybe they’re A/B testing something and that’s why she isn’t seeing it?)

      Any help appreciated. Thanks!

      EDIT: I think we figured it out. It looks like Posts and Photos have been combined into just "Posts" with no mention of photos whatsoever. When you get the resulting .zip file, it contains the photos, though. It's typically shitty of Facebook.
