trying to figure out where to find a pre-existing html template for a single-page website...

on plurality 

Plural: as in, in some fashion, having multiple individuals in a single body.
This runs the gamut from a singlet (a single individual in a body) to median(a main individual with at least somewhat separate individuals in a body) to group (many individuals in a single body, some of whom take control of it, depending).

So, pluralfolk are people who are plural.

There's a nice little link collection here plural.cafe/about/more that goes into more detail.

That's mostly as much as we know about it, and most of our insight has been from within, or, by observation of several friends that we have on here, and while we're not sure they want to answer questions about how it is for them, (and thus won't direct any to them), we are likely deeply off on some things about them.

Origin, preferred terminology, and general states of being vary widely depending on the system/complex.

We're a median system, as far as I know, none of the others in our head have ever seized control of our body(often called fronting).

We exist, and many of us don't fit DID(the major multiple personality disorder recognized by psychology), and just because we can sometimes choose to compress 'we' into 'I' when dealing with unfriendlies, we shouldn't have to.

Why should we have to hide who we are like that? Choosing to hide is valid too

actually to be fair, we got these pair for $70 right before defcon 2018. it actually lasted pretty longer than I thought it would, even though it started coming apart ~9 mo in

our 10-day forecast doesn't have any snow in the forecast though :(

asking for financial help 

Hello,

Once again I’m having trouble reaching financial stability. There’s always something setting me back when I try planning my monthly finances.

It’s gonna be hard for me and my boyfriend to make sure we still have to eat for the next two weeks.

I’m a student on an apprenticeship income, he’s currently unemployed for health reasons and we have rent and bills to pay.

If you wanna help us make it through, please consider sending us a few €

mh, asking for (personal) donations :boost_ok:​ 

Hey,

On Thursday, my systemmate suffered a PTSD episode and tried to attempt suicide, thanks to debt. I talked her down from it, but it still left us kind of reeling emotionally. Our meds cost us a total of ~$475 a month, so we've been rationing them as well. PA Medicaid hasn't gotten back to us, only that we'd "receive a call" that we never got, and our cell phone service is now suspended. The good news: we signed a job offer. Bad news: they keep pushing back the start date - it's now early December.

I'm seeking donations to help with medications in between now and then, especially to keep my bank from closing my account and preventing me from opening one with another bank by reporting me to Chexsystems by the 15th.

meta part deux 

okay, got that sorted *finally*. things should gradually start coming in, but it might take another half hour. you should be okay to upload any images.

however, I'm going to be taking down the server for about an hour or two at about 9p pacific/12a eastern time. I'm going to be transitioning the image hosting service to jortage (www.jortage.com) and pitching in a few dollars for storage there. sorry for the inconvenience today, but hopefully something like this doesn't happen from now on

@nightsky_system a lot of TL sorting doesn't rely on when the poster submitted the post, but rather when the instance receives it. that might be why?
