plural.cafe instance meta (rules rewrite) 

Hello folks! @starfall speaking, we spent some time yesterday rewriting the rules section with an eye on making paragraphs shorter and our values more explicit.

They haven't taken effect yet; the draft can be seen at hackmd.io/@starfall/plural-caf

Some things are added to the old rules, not just reworded:

* "blatant advertising" -> "corporate advertising", with a specific exception for self-promotion
* explicitly sex and kink positive, but these must still be content warned appropriately
* explicitly sex worker positive, give or take some legal requirements
* required content warnings section added, with some of the most common triggers we know of
* some changes to the bot account policy - bots must be opt-in, not opt-out, automated posts shouldn't be on public
* more explicit federation policy around suspending some servers that don't block servers we suspend

Feel free to comment and suggest changes here or @ us directly.

Bard Cleric duo called thots and prayers but thots is the cleric who worships some kind of love or lust deity and prayers is the college of lore bard with expertise in religion.

transformation 

Want to see dude get Isekaid and excited to do magic and stuff only to find out magic is done through like weaving and stuff and he has to learn all these crafts they derided when they were in the old world but through the process they find it really enjoyable once they sit down to actually learn the weaving and she learns to appreciate and listen to the folks teaching her she kind of sheds all the old world baggage and behaviors that were holding her back and takes her armor she weaved herself and goes out to be a badass assassin in season 2.

Rant 

Eigentlich hab ich gar kein Bock mehr, dass wir ständig immer das selbe erzählen müssen und niemand zuhört. Nicht im Sinn von sich die Sachen nicht anhören, sondern mehr so... weiß nicht, es folgt keine Handlung, es ändert sich nix an Strukturen. Man redet und redet und redet und bewirkt am Ende nix. Das macht mich echt fertig. Seit 4 Jahren nur Gelaber. Warum ziehen sich Leute Stories von anderen rein als sei das irgendwie Kino, wo man nach dem Film wieder raus geht? Die drölfzig Hashtags da zum Thema Armut oder Sexismus als Beispiel. Wie lange müssen wir noch immer wieder auspacken bis mal was angepackt wird? Kann 1000 Leuten erzählen, dass wir auf Platte waren und warum. Und was is dann? Nix. Bisschen Mitleid und Ende. Bisschen Saviour spielen und wenn man nicht dankbar is, dann Tschüss. Ätzend!

Why can't we have a goal of improving things by making them simpler instead of this constantly growing chaotic tower of software and services and channels and servers

political rant, reference to bathrooms 

A thing that's bothered me for years is that an inclusive safe space that implicitly or explicitly requires me to buy something, is not an inclusive safe space for me. I can be okay with it if I can afford it, but often the need to pay for the locations and employees, especially if paying anything resembling a living wage, puts it out of my price range anyway.
A safer space should be carved out by illegal occupation of private property, probably through the use of sledgehammers and crowbars to remove the locks, hostile architecture and other impediments thereto, and Margaret Thatcher's grave will suffice to meet the need for a gender-neutral bathroom.

cw political rant at racist liberals and such, re: the Philippines 

I just found out there's folks cancelling their commissions of Filipino artists because they're upset about the election. Like, Murrican folks who are like, "oh no, The Philippines is fascist now, so all their people are bad. I should cancel."
What the fuck. If your artist says some racist shit or something, or has shit politics and means people harm, sure, drop them like a hot potato, but this is folks deciding folks are evil because... what, they think the election was fair? They think everybody there has the same politics? What kind of racist scum can't see that there's apparatus at work here that a simple artist, often an oppressed person themself, has no say in and can only try desperately to tread water to stop from drowning in it?!

Amusing mastodon. Thing. Seeing someone talk about taking someone for walkies and not knowing if they are talking about another human.

i used to like- keep a public card about our system and let singlets follow me on simply plural and stuff but like- I kinda realized i just don't wanna share that info with people, it's not really anyone else's business, so i stopped. I'm kinda proud of myself for realizing when i was sharing more than i was comfortable with tbh
