gamedev, the game I've been working on (off and on admittedly) for a year (in two weeks), screenshot
It's nowhere near done, and this promotional screenshot is merely one fragment of one tiny corner of the massive whole, but it's one that I would share with people so that they are aware of its existence and hopeful of its eventual release:
the weirdest / most values-dissonant thing about jp "isekai" / rpg-type fantasy worlds is
that there's a category of creatures called "monsters", and goblins/orcs whatever are "monsters" and not people, and this is totally obvious to everyone that there's no meaningful difference between a goblin and a dire wolf, except goblins are is 'F' rank and wolves are 'D'. They both attack caravans for no reason other than "they're monsters".
like at least d&d "always/usually chaotic evil" (which also makes no sense) acknowledges them as people and (evil) moral agents
whereas in some of these worlds, "orc meat" is a commodity sold alongside jackalope horns and dire wolf pelts??
once the fix is in place, the unfollow messages will be interpreted correctly, but users you forced to unfollow before the fix will still be in that weird situation where they kinda follow you but kinda not
So be careful with the "followers-only" privacy level
(thanks to Claire for the explanations and to @Courgette for the french summary here https://mastodon.opportunis.me/@Courgette/104614627915551177 that I translated)
The issue goes something like this:
when you force someone to unfollow you (in your followers list on the settings page), a message is sent to that person's instance. But for a good while now this message hasn't been interpreted correctly, so the remote instance continues to think that this user is following you. So if your (followers-only) message is sent to this remote instance (i.e. because someone else follows you there), it will also be shown to the person that you made unfollow.
So there's a bug related to "followers only" toots:
- a post that's "followers only" can be seen by people who don't follow you as of now
- it's a known bug, there's a fix coming https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/14479
- I'll post an Announcement when the instance is up to date
- the problem is on the receiving side so it won't be fully fixed until other instances are up to date
- even once the fix is deployed everwhere, all the issues still won't be entirely corrected.
She knew the advice for confronting tigers. Never look away first. But this was no tiger.
The dragon's eyes, amber with gold flecks, felt like they pierced her soul. In that moment, they knew each other.
She remembered a leaping from a mountaintop nest and spreading her wings for the first time. The dragon remembered training with a spear as a young girl and learning to hunt.
And they both remembered gazing at the stars and wishing for companionship.
I am a muffin. (The "H" is silent) 34-year-old devil but in a catgirl sort of way, snugglemuffin, perennial emotional wreck, too gay for this.
