  • Okay so


    Width: 35

    X: 161

    Y: 67

    And set the opacity to something under 50%, change the template style to "source"

    Looks like we might get some clashes at the edge


    New coordinates: X: 125 Y: 2

    Edit 2: back to the original ones

  • Canvas
  • Yeah obviously the badge is an easy option given they're already templates we can use out there

    One thought I had was maybe to do a version of the patchwork strip from a few years ago, but we'd need to figure out how to turn it into a template that doesn't look rubbish

  • Canvas Canvas 2024 is live! -

    Rocky start, but we’re here! also making this almost an hour late due to the rocky start # What’s Canvas? Canvas is a collaborative pixel canvas similar to Reddit’s r/place, except it is open to (almost) the entire Fediverse! The event is going on from July 12th 4am UTC to July 15th @ 4am UTC (72 ho...

    So canvas is on again this year! We could try and be a bit more organised this time if people are around

    Why aren't there adult only flights?
  • Honestly thanks for getting it, I expected the odd parent to take some weird personal offence at me wanting an option to not fly with kids around and get all defensive, but I didn't expect quite this level of vitriol. It's not like I want them to not fly, like it seems is the suggested solution for me—or y'know the practical solution of chartering a bloody private jet(?!). I just want to sleep on a 14h overnight flight by removing myself from the situation preventing it, and will even (or rather, actually tried to) spend a bit more to do so, but clearly that's just me being an entitled arsehole.

    Cheers for the great resource, it's a shame there's only a few options currently, but perhaps the list will grow. Tbh even just explicitly quiet zones being more prevalent would probably be a good solution for me. There are quiet carriages on pretty much all the trains in my country that don't even cost extra, and I've never seen young children in those. That's never seemed like a remotely controversial idea—I'm basically just looking for an equivalent for planes.

    Agree on the ANC comment too, I've had top of the range Sony, Bose and Google ANC headphones and none can actually get rid of kid noise like screaming, they'll distort it a bit maybe. If anything the cancelling of the plane engine noise can emphasise it at times because it's the only thing that makes it through.

  • Why aren't there adult only flights?

    Honestly, I will never wrap my head around how people can happily bring infants on any flight where you can expect people to try and sleep, it's incredibly lucky if they don't spend some of it screaming their heads off—I would be mortified if my choices were preventing hundreds of people from sleeping. But I'm not going to rant too hard about that.

    Why on earth hasn't any airline started marketing adult-only flights?

    It seems like a complete no brainer to me, I would choose it every time and pay extra for it.

    Disclaimer: I may or may not be on a 36h day with only an hour of sleep right now

    I originally posted it on Reddit a couple years back and people rated it a lot. I decided to share it here as well. - Jungle [early 90s-present] - the genre that predates dnb and laid foundations for the genre. It ranges between 160-168 BPM and focuses on rearranged and chopped breakbeats sampled fr...

    Wasps: One Year On. Getting There Club Announcements

    It has been 12 months since the administration event that saw WASPS relegated from the RFU - and that was the day that we planned our return. You will know our journey through the fit and proper process of the RFU and the difficulties we faced on funding and acceptance to enter the Championship.

    As someone who's been a wasps fan for decades, this is finally some positive news after what has felt like a very long silence!

    Now I wonder where the ground they mention is going to be


    What's everyone played this week?

    I've just started Return to the Obra Dinn, so far really liking the art style and the main game mechanics. I'm interested to see how the story unfolds as it seems to be taking a "memento" style reverse chronological approach to telling it.

    Also still playing Halls of Torment as ever since Vampire Survivors, one of these top down roguelite shoot-em-up games has been in my rotation.

    Oh and I nearly forgot, also started pizza tower, but only dipped my toe into that one so far. Really enjoy the art and platforming mechanics so far.


    Which is the best entry in the series?

    Let's kick off some slightly low effort content here:

    Which is your favourite game in the series?

    For me it will always be between Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert.

    I think the story of TD is what pulled me into the series in the first place, and RA on Westwood online is what cemented me as a fan


    Can't subscribe to a community

    Hey, I've been trying to subscribe to [email protected] for a couple of days now and know the drill about searching it first and waiting for it to sync, but it doesn't seem to be doing the job.

    It looks like other communities seem to work fine, but this one seems to stubbornly refuse to show up.

    Is there something I'm missing here?


    Simple old Lemmy community bar customisation (updated again)


    So I browse on the desktop using the mlmym/old.lemmy client (e.g. because old habits die hard.

    One of the many things I found myself missing from RES & Reddit was the ability to customise the community bar at the top of the page to contain some links to my favourite communities. I had a spare minute this morning to throw together a userscript for just that:

    Here's a pastebin with the script. Create a new userscript in tampermonkey (or whatever userscript plugin you use), drop the code in, change the array of communities at the top to be the ones you want prepending to the list, and you should be good.

    Make sure to add the server suffix to any communities from other instances and if you want to use this on another instance other than, just change the match rule in the userscript header comment.

    I didn't host on greasyfork as I'm probably not going to make any further changes, and I'd need to come up with something a bit more sophisticated than an array of communities. I'll update this post if I ever change my mind on that


    So I guess I wasn't happy with leaving it alone:

    Here it is on greasyfork

    I added localStorage and a simple config GUI to configure the list of favourites now, no reordering yet (without just removing and re-adding in a different order), but I imagine I'll end up adding that in time

    Update 2

    And another update:

    I've just updated GreasyFork with 0.3

    • Added reordering
    • Added background fade and background click to close
    • Added favourite/unfavourite button to the community sidebar

    We did it!
