Thanks for letting me know. I'll take a look at how I can solve the issue.

RE: Is Ernest still here?

I check in here quite often, but for now, I'm just focusing on clearing spam and keeping the instance alive. In January, I was working on the AP module, and there has been significant progress in the work, which hasn't been publicly published yet. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the year, I developed a skin condition that...

Thanks a ton for the update Ernest! It's great to hear from you, and I hope your health improves soon.

That being said, I do have a few things I'd like to suggest.

--

In February, I spent my time visiting doctors and undergoing treatment with medications, which often had very unpleasant side effects. Therefore, I decided to hold off on any major updates to avoid causing even more chaos.

If I'm interpreting this correctly (i.e., that you chose not to give any updates as to prevent people freaking out), I don't think this was the best move. I understand where you were coming from, but (if you were able) some sort of small status update would've been preferable to a month-long silence (especially since you'd previously said that you'd be unavailable for only 2–4 days). A simple "Hey, I'm currently not doing well. I'll get back to things as soon as I'm feeling better," would've at least let us know that you were alive and that the project hadn't been abandoned.

--

Just because it's not visible that something is happening doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything during this time. In fact, two really significant things have been successful, which I've been working on for a long time and which I intended to announce soon once I recover.

I don't think this whole "holding off for a big announcement" thing is a great approach, at least not now. There are currently several issues that we're waiting to see fixed, and we have no idea which ones (if any) are being worked on. If you must wait for a big reveal though, at least telling us, "I'm still working on stuff" would be better than nothing.

--

And finally, I really suggest getting some more admins for the instance. You're absolutely correct to prioritize your health over Kbin; nevertheless, it's far from ideal for your absence to mean that spam piles up, moderation requests lie unanswered, and accounts can't be deleted. We'd all appreciate it if you could have at least one extra person on deck for whenever you're ill or in need of a break.

--

Thanks again for all you do for Kbin, and I hope things get better!

From what I can gather, this particular design was proposed by Puerto Rico's New Progressive Party (Partido Nuevo Progresista or PNP), which advocates for Puerto Rican statehood. The circle definitely has its appeal, though I think I'd prefer something closer to the current flag.

Yeah, the one with alternating rows is the one I see most and the one I'd prefer. You make a good point about the circle being different though. Honestly never thought about it that way, but with that in mind, I can see why the PNP would opt for something like this.

Advocate, to mcsuggestions

"inhibit natural creativity" is an outright lie

My creativity is infinite by not having a way to sit down and by not having vertical slabs. There's no way in the game to do these things no matter how creative you are. A trap door is (usually) not a substitute for a vertical slab and and there's literally no way to simulate sitting down. That's Microsoft saying they don't want to, it's nothing to do with us. And that's just the top two things on their rejected page.

ThatOneKirbyMain2568,

@Advocate I think the slabs may be a technical limitation. They'd have to deal with every combination of top & bottom slab, which might involve tons of new blockstates or an overhaul of how slabs were handled and thus not be very feasible when they have other things to work on.

Or it might be another vertical slabs thing where they say it "liMitS CreAtIViTY".

(Short) Something in Your Kitchen Emits Antimatter (iv.ggtyler.dev)

A lot of this short is in a new style of 3D — a more regularly shaded one than the cel-shaded 3D they usually use. It honestly goes pretty well with the 2D, and I think it'd be fun to see this style in a full video or two. Dunno if it should become a staple of Kurzgesagt's style, but it's def interesting.

100% with you on tenders being better than nuggets. In general, nuggets have always been kinda eh (sometimes solid, sometimes awful), and dino nuggets are the worst of their kind.

Interesting. I might be somewhat of the opposite — I think barbecue's great, but I'm not a fan of barbecue potato chips. I'll maybe eat some if there's nothing else around and I'm hungry, but I've just never liked them.

ThatOneKirbyMain2568,
ThatOneKirbyMain2568 avatar

What? Why would anyone cook it? What would they use that for? Who could hurt someone so badly to make them do that?

ThatOneKirbyMain2568,

Well, I despise donuts, so it's probably me.

But Eigel isn’t alone in his condemnation of the bill. Another Republican, Missouri State Senator Sandy Crawford, claimed the incest and rape provision shouldn’t pass because “God is perfect.”

“God does not make mistakes. And for some reason he allows that to happen, bad things happen,” Crawford said. “I’m not gonna be able to support the amendments because I am very pro-life.”

You can't help but appreciate the sheer amount of cognitive dissonance you gotta have to say, "God is perfect," and "…for some reason He allows … bad things [to] happen." How delusional can you be to say that raped children giving birth is part of some perfect, divine plan?

Social conservatism is a complete joke.

This might be a good idea, at least until Ernest gets back. To my knowledge, he's the only instance admin, so as long as he's inactive, the spammers won't get dealt with (especially on magazines he moderates, like /m/tech).

Ideally, there could be another admin or two to deal with this stuff when he's not available, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Haha, this is gold. I'd like to think I fall more into the pedant category (except when something actually matters; then I lean towards moron).

ThatOneKirbyMain2568,

I think the point is more that without the serial comma, the last two items in the list aren't separated like the others, which (imo) feels like omitting the last bullet point in a list.

EDIT: Fixed a typo.
