there is a small pokédex here
Other stuff of interest:
- Enjoy my personal site, and those of the myriad other contributors.
- Toss some ₽ my way, to support veekun development.
- Stop by the IRC channel (instructions) to chat with some cool nerds and complain when the site is broken.
Could you talk about something related to the management/moderation and growth of online communities? IOW your thoughts on online community management, if any.
I think you’ve tweeted about this stuff in the past so I suspect you have thoughts on this, but if not, again, feel free to just blog about … anything :)
Oh, I think I have some stuff to say about community management, in light of recent events. None of it hasn’t already been said elsewhere, and I wouldn’t say it’s really about “online” or has a strong “point”, but I have to get this out.
Hopefully the content warning is implicit in the title.
IndustrialRobot asks… or, uh, asked last month:
industrialrobot: How has your views on tech changed as you’ve got older?
This is so open-ended that it’s actually stumped me for a solid month. I’ve had a surprisingly hard time figuring out where to even start.
A kind anonymous patron offers this prompt, which I totally fucked up getting done in July:
Something to do with programming languages? Alternatively, interesting game mechanics!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a thing about programming languages, eh? But I feel like I’ve run low on interesting things to say about them. And I just did that level design article, which already touched on some interesting game mechanics… oh dear.
Okay, how about this. It’s something I’ve been neck-deep in for quite some time, and most of the knowledge is squirrelled away in obscure wikis and ancient forum threads: getting data out of Pokémon games. I think that preserves the spirit of your two options, since it’s sort of nestled in a dark corner between how programming languages work and how game mechanics are implemented.
The forums are dead quiet. No one is posting. A lone tumbleweed rolls by.
Maybe you should do something about this.
