PSA: please do not use "religion" when you mean Christianity, abortion
Attempting to get ahead of the inevitable backlash: US abortion bans are not an expression of *religious* freedom. They are an expression of certain *Christian* views.
In Judaism, there are many cases where abortion is halachically mandated: https://www.jta.org/2019/05/22/opinion/what-jewish-law-really-says-about-abortion (a good overview from an Orthodox perspective) Banning abortion infringes upon Jewish religious freedom, so please don't say "religion" when you mean Christian.
An appeal for help:
Trunk is an opt-in directory of people on Mastodon and the Fediverse looking for followers, organised into a large range of topics:
Anyone can ask to be added, and the admins of Trunk check the account (to screen out spam etc) and add them.
However, due to the need to check the contents of accounts, this Trunk only includes people who post mainly in English. It means they have to turn away a lot of non-English accounts.
The Trunk admins want to fix this situation.
Do you use a language other than English? Do you want to help make a version of Trunk in your own language?
The English Trunk admins can help you with the technical side, but they need people who speak other languages to moderate Trunks in those other languages.
➡️ Can you help? If so, get in touch with @kensanata who leads the Trunk project.
(There is a Spanish Trunk at https://trunkesp.chilemasto.casa but so far no other languages.)
I always get a kick out of Miniature Mashup. His kitbashes are meant to be cheaper alternatives and are kinda trash to treasure. Here’s his latest https://youtu.be/1l29OySMi2Q
Played Imperial Steam a second time this evening. Two of the players took missteps early on and disliked the game. Game is far too punishing with little too mitigate if you get behind the eightball...
Initial few turns seem wide open, but really there appear to be few optimal moves.
I like the core game, but wish it was developed to be more forgiving.
Anyone out there want to play some #tabletopsimulator some time? I'm trying to play Root with real people : )
