The more engineering experience I get, the more and more my job is just communicating with people, and the more and more powerful I become.

Very hot take about videogame violence and influence 

People grumbling that blaming videogame violence as a bad influence on people are conveniently missing the point that it's the culture and attitudes surrounding videogames that's a big problem rather than the content in the video games.
It's very difficult to argue that a small army of angry white teenagers goading each other on to be progressively more shitty people to fit in, with videogames as the common ground, is a positive thing

Update on Future Fursday (which is today!):

One of our engineers *did* propose a fursona-related project, and it *did* get 4 votes, but sadly did not get enough votes to make the cut for today’s agenda.

tips for newcomers

follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!

boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.

please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.

hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.

don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!

if you think about it, joe rogan is just gwyneth paltrow for dudes
