If possible, please adjust the API limits for moderators. For example, if I'm a moderator of a given magazine and I am posting links to it I can run into HTTP 429 TOO MANY REQUESTS. This is understandable if I'm doing things outside magazines that I moderate but if I am:

  1. Trying to post content to increase traffic
  2. Trying to vote on posts to increase traffic
  3. Trying to moderate posts to remove junk

...and all of this is happening in a magazine that I moderate, it would be nice for the API to give me a little more leeway than a non-moderator in the magazine.

I know this is a non-trivial implementation but I wanted to request it.


I say this because I have bursts of activity; I can't add content to the magazines all day, and so when I come to add posts to them I am getting blocked from doing so because of the API limits.

Rewriting the Ruby parser (

At Shopify, we have spent the last year writing a new Ruby parser, which we’ve called YARP (Yet Another Ruby Parser). As of the date of this post, YARP can parse a semantically equivalent syntax tree to Ruby 3.3 on every Ruby file in Shopify’s main codebase, GitHub’s main codebase, CRuby, and the 100 most popular gems...

Automatically Find Memory Leaks in Native Gems (

It’s not uncommon for Rails developers to encounter memory leaks, which causes the system to run out of memory and kill the app. Often, this is caused by native gems that forgot to clean up memory.

I'm assuming that the Xbox version will be more stable than the PC version in the initial release window so I doubly feel for those who won't have access to an Xbox to play it.


This is bad news, I appreciated the easy integration with Google Cloud Platform and other Google services via Google Domains. It was the one place I felt like buying a domain name was safe.

@pandantic Please post links as links, not as microblogs.

TIL: dir in - the directory part of FILE, simplifies some uses of FILE a bit


@mackuba Your text isn't escaped so it's interpreted as markup. __FILE__ is likely what you meant to post.


The page to manage moderators is broken and returns 503 Service Unavailable. It has been doing this for at least a week. I'm unable to add moderators to the magazines that I created as a result and I could use some help on some of them.

For example:

I tried in Chrome, Safari, Firefox and curl. curl returns:

Any word on when this might be resolved?


Looks like it is because of the bug resolved by this open PR:

Fingers crossed that it gets merged and deployed.
