And we're back again after a brief outage due to me not paying the server bill (not surprising at this point).

We are now running Mastodon 2.9.0, and it has new UI.

To Try it:
Go to Settings -> Preferences -> Appearance and uncheck "Enable Advanced Web Interface" to try out the new UI!
New users should get it by default.

We now have fully functioning XMPP server at gensokyo.social!
Reg is open, btw!

Our resident mikos have successfully resolved the incident.

Amanojaku is gone.
For now...

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties due to Amanojaku interference. We've dispatched a couple of miko lasses to deal with it. but purification ritual might take some time. Please wait warmly.

Things HAVE happened and I have revived DALE back from the dead. From now on this will be an account primarily for announcements and shit.

Dale is back with regular scheduled programming at @Deiru

Anyone from outside should go and follow that instead. Local users should keep following this because I'm not risking my personal account drowning out some important warning or whatever.

That is, of course, if the game actually provides that proper context and is being honset with the player. I'm not talking "Hatred" or Illusions chikan simulators, I'm talking Tyrany or New Vegas.

Few games try to cast you into a role of a villain without making it campy or trivializing it for the sake of funsies.

Participating in the acts of violence and evil deeds in videogames is much more valuable to the player than doing good things.

By directly enacting morally wrong or gray actions in a grounded context in a virtual world you are compelled to impose it on yourself and think about yourself, rather than just being satisfied with playing out the hero trope.

Friendship ended with "Country Roads".
Now "The Passenger" is my best friend.
