In-reply-to > The EU Approves Sweeping Draft Regulations On Social Media Giants "The European Union took a significant step Thursday toward passing legislation that could transform the way major technology companies operate," reports the Washington Post, "requiring them to police content on their platforms more aggressively and introducing new restrictions on advertising, among other provisions...."

@prologic @movq @lyse It says “Violations could in future be punished with fines of up to 6% of a company’s annual revenue” and seems to mostly target algorithms and advertising, so as a platform with no algorithms, no advertising and no revenue, we’re all good. Even if we aren’t, up to 6% of our annual revenue of 0 is still a 0 dollar fine. 😂👌

@prologic I know, I was just hoping it might have also gotten fixed by that change, by some kind of backend miracles. 😂

In-reply-to > @prologic this seems to be missing "like" functionality, which maybe you never intended to implement.

@eldersnake I sometimes miss the likes for some posts, but I’m glad they’re not here most of the time. When sites have likes, I end up only ever posting pixelart (or memes) and not talking, since that is what people will like on these kinds of sites, but with new text posts (unless it’s a reply to a conversation a lot of people are interested in) you rarely get any attention, so starting those gives you next to no replies or engagement and only makes you feel down, thinking nobody cares about the topic. 🤔

@prologic Yes, if your work is related to IT, you’re required to give your take on it at least once every January!

@prologic I’ll try mentioning @fastidious . He was the ony one I was unable to mention from the app, since he moved pods. 🤔

In-reply-to > @fastidious Sad to see you got hit as well, but value can't only ever go up, as most of the scammers in the crypto space and Internets "financial gurus" want people to believe.

@fastidious It went up this high only a month or so ago, so who knows what the future holds. These are also above average rates, that I was able to get, by moving my money to a new bank, willing to pay more. There is also a rule that if the money you have there exceeds some limit (around 32 500 dollars in this bank, less than half in the average bank), the money above the limit will not have interests this good.

@fastidious Inflation hit my country as much as all the rest, but at least the bank where I’m putting my money now has some interests. While it’s not enough to cover the inflation, it is currently from 2.8 to 3.6 % a month, which is not too bad, considering it was not even 1% when COVID first hit.

In-reply-to > So, @prologic, having a slash on the nick breaks mentions. Is there a consensus on which characters are allowed on nicks, or just about anything goes? Evidently I am not going to be exchanging that many twts (if anything at all) with someone with a slash on their nick, but it would be nice to either set some "standard", or fix mentions (again?!) to accommodate.

@fastidious If it’s interpreted as some dog related pun, than I’m fine with it. That’s what I usually do myself, just with changeable display names. 😄

Funny enough the canine used as my mascot has no canonical name, but thanks to an old file naming convention I was using, that made “Jim” a part of a lot of those image names, some started calling him Jim, so that name is the closest to canon. 🙃
