I made some wallpapers based on Apple's invite for their iPhone event. https://birchtree.me/blog/gather-round-apple-event-wallpapers/
I still like it here, but I even feel like my affinity for the platform is waning. I'm still checking in a couple times a day and I still like the people I talk to here, but stories like Wil's puts the "Mastodon magic" in sharp clarity for me: people will be terrible on any platform. When the solution to Wheaton's "I'm being harassed constantly" problem was to suspend his account...I just don't know 😐
Wil Wheaton's experience on Mastodon is brutal. Isn't Mastodon supposed to be a "good place"? Aren't the community rules supposed to make it so people with good intentions can have a good time?
If it's taken just weeks for someone with a large following to have the exact same experience as they did on Twitter, maybe Mastodon isn't the silver bullet for online abuse some hoped it would be.

Hollow Knight is apparently only $10 on #Nintendo Switch right now.
That price is a crime. Like, I'm considering calling the police on whoever set it that low. Hollow Knight is easily worth $30-40 and maybe more.
Anyway what I'm saying is that if you play video games and enjoy unique platformers with interesting stories and lots of gameplay flexibility, it is your patriotic duty to buy and play the crap out of #HollowKnight.
