I really like the favorite/boost/bookmark distinctions. I also like the fact that here you have to go back to the original post to talk--my brain says lovechild of Twitter and Pillowfort. Also, accountability, woohoo!

So. In my view.

Favorite: HEY YOU this was a COOL THING.

Boost: HEY EVERYONE this was a COOL THING.

Bookmark: HEY ME don't forget about this COOL THING.

Reply: OMG WHAT A COOL THING can we TALK about it?

I believe the #ttrpg community relies too much on PDFs. It is cheaper (free), easier, and more accessible (to both creators and users) to produce games in other formats like HTML/CSS.

I want to help folks learn how to do it for themselves. I write a blog called Coding Character Sheets with guides to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript aimed at beginners and game designers: nothingventuredgames.com/codin

Alright, today's the day ya'll are gonna learn how to make proper Chai! (no not Chai tea latte bullshit. Ya'll are literally asking for tea tea latte, doesn't make sense!)

Listen up! (this will be in multiple parts in comments due to character limit)

1. Fill your cooking pot 1.5 parts (measured by the cup you're serving in) of water.

2. Add a healthy pinch of grated ginger.

If only we had a recent example of why allowing billionaires to exist is bad for society.

As Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Stripe, Shopify, Lyft, Netflix, and Microsoft lay off workers, let it serve as a reminder that free snacks, beer kegs, and ping pong tables are not real perks.

Do you know what is? Being part of a union that will defend you.

I made this one with two clothespins, two plastic caps, wire and beads, covered it with a white undercoat then painted it. It's inspired by the amazing work of @ArtFromRachel.
(Also it's a functional mini flower pot!)

This holiday season Twitter fires 4K workers, Amazon fires 10K workers, & Facebook fires 11K workers—all while US Billionaire pandemic wealth increased an absurd $1.7T.😳

A reminder that billionaires don’t create jobs—they exploit workers. Tax billionaires. Unionize workers.

Be the Edison Carter you want to see in the world.

Along with writing books, releasing map tools, and random design stuff, I also review fake profanity from #scifi and #fantasy.

Today I take a look at a catch-all slur from Amazon's CARNIVAL ROW. You can read my review at the link below.

Trying to avoid falling back into the old 🐤 trap of just boosting and never posting original things. So here’s a peek at a couple things from the painting bench. Plague doctors from Reaper minis inspired by Dana Howl’s synthwave stuff from a while back.

This past week on Gnome Stew's Gnomecast, several of us recorded some stories of GM Burnout, and how we resolved the situation.

Hola! Asking the and community: What are good practices for taking care of your wrists, elbow and shoulder? Thanks!

The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement.

For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously).

"Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature.

There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content.

It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off.

Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users.

How to Write Good Alt Text on your Images without straining yourself, Advice from an Expert 

I have nine years of experience working in Alt Media for educational access, and I have a little advice, particularly for furry artists on how to write Alt Text that will be useful and accessible for your blind followers.
A summary list:

1. Be brief as possible.
2. Do not repeat information.
3. Choose to describe what is most important.
4. Do not use it to circumvent the system.

My partner in life, crime, and art, @jentendo, and I are opening a #ttrpg and #boardgame space in a bank built in the 1920s.

It's been in the planning for half a year, and we've been building out the space for a solid 12 weeks.

I designed, created, and installed exterior signage last week. This week we're moving in the furniture Jen sourced for half a year, fabricating signs for the 30' tall windows, finishing the maker space, and getting games and ttrpg books onto shelves.

I haven't posted here in a bit. I've been opening a ttrpg gaming space with my ridiculously adorable partner in life and crime, @jentendo@mastodon.lol.

It's been a blast. I'll post some photos of the art deco, brass and marble bank from the '20s we've been renovating, and the '80s themed design work associated.

It's a good time to start posting more, and a good time to check out what's going on here again.

Hey #TTRPG crafters, I'd LOVE to see some of your awesome #Terrain builds!

Even if you're not a crafter, I'd appreciate a boost so I can see all the amazing #miniatures out there
