Did you know that you can influence which photo is used for stops & gyms in ?

If you can see the POI nearby in-game, tap the arrow in the upper-right corner once (for stops) or twice (for gyms) and then tap the square in the bottom-right that says "n photo(s)". It will bring up a screen of all the photos in 's database and allow you to upvote the one(s) you like best.

You can also vote on the photos for gifts you send or open: when the gift occupies the whole screen (just before you'd otherwise tap "send" or "open"), tap the photo and then the bottom-right square to access the screen.

Which English-language pronouns to use for _this_ genderless (by nature) legendary pokémon? 

> If you prefer traditional
Any one of them except for it. Although he isn't any less inaccurate than she, strict binomial systems classify me firmly in the bucket.

> If you want to use (perhaps because you also wish to expand and normalize this vocabulary)
Anything that doesn't start with Z or X. If you want a specific to use on me, try vi/vim. An easy way to remember is that my paws can supply the you use to power your text editor.

Somehow in the year 2021 we have created "fully responsive" Internet text message board themes that, when you run them on half of a 16:9 screen, do this.

This wasn't exactly on my list of "computer technologies that the year 2021 would include" when I was an 80s kid.

(admittedly my list was "nothing more than rocks because we would have nuked each other by 1997" but if I'd thought we wouldn't, I definitely would have thought we'd be a little better at wordwrap)

wait what the fuck rabbits exist in real life?

I really wish OSS communities would stop defaulting to Discord or Slack. Your software isn’t a lifestyle. I don’t want to live with the goddamn thing. I want a forum I can visit once in a while, not to take out an attention mortgage.

raid numbers are bad and confusing, why cant we use normal people words like "the mirror one" and "the bad one" and "the parity one" and "the parity two"

“As people start following more and more accounts on a social network, they reach a point where the number of candidate stories exceeds their capacity to see them all. Even before that point, the sheer signal-to-noise ratio may decline to the point that it affects engagement. Almost any network that hits this inflection point turns to the same solution: an algorithmic feed.”

It’s more than just capitalism that brought the algorithms.

And that hatted :driftblim: got me my fifth excellent curve throw in a row.

An essay to review whenever you find yourself caring too much about who unfollowed you 

> Graph design problems are one-way mistakes in large part because users make them so. Most social media users don't unfollow people after following them. Much of this comes down to social conformity. It's awkward and uncomfortable to do so, especially if you'll run into them.
