Hey, Merveilles members!

A lot of you have asked about moving this instance to Hometown, so it's time to run another poll.

To help make sure people only on the instance can vote, please log into the web client on merveilles.town and look at the "announcements" section at the top of the page. There's a link to the poll there.

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks everyone!

Made myself a Cosmopolitan tonight after looking up drinks that required cranberry. It's stronger than I expected, and pretty tasty!

Also learned about how Cointreau is a type of triple sec and that had me thinking to myself: "It's only Cointreau if it's from the Cointreau region of France, otherwise it's just sparkling triple sec." ;3

Thanks to everyone for keeping us going! It's sincerely appreciated.

Cheers, and I hope you all are safe and sound!

furry, lgbtq+ history 

On a recent a nostalgia trip, I re-read the queer furry comics "Associated Student Bodies" (nsfw+explicit) and "Circles" (nsfw+non-explicit).

I don't think I would have been as comfortable being queer or as knowledgable about queer history without them.

Same thing with Kyell Gold's "Waterways" (also nsfw+explicit), which helped me come to terms with my own sexuality when I was younger. The main character being in a similar situation to mine really resonated with me.

Hey folks! How are you all doing? :3

This tiger's been tied up between work, house hunting, and Valheim. Looking for houses in this area sure is complicated, but hopefully we get a place soonish! 🤞

Been loving how Valheim plays, it's a nice relaxing space with an eventual goal that lets you get to it however you like. It's exactly what I wanted out of this mix of Minecraft and Animal Crossing!

imposter syndrome 

I’m reading Essentialism and I found one of the reasons I stopped coming to merveilles so often. This is an amazing community full of wonderful people, and a source of inspiration of all kinds. I consider myself lucky to be a part of it and contribute to it.

This forest is growing out of control. There are now different height levels and both characters can walk on specific terrain, so you have to swap between them to reach some otherwise inaccessible places.

The lagomorph can hop on logs and the batracian can swim. It's not pictured here because the GIF would be huge, but it works!

Chisai is now available for everyone! 🔥

It's a microsite generator, editable and hosted on github. Everything is pre-configured and it's easy to customize the content. :cooldog:

Demo: thomasorus.github.io/Chisai/
Code: github.com/Thomasorus/Chisai
Guide/How to: github.com/Thomasorus/Chisai/w

Oh dear, looks like a bunch of errors were happening after the reboot. Sorry about that!

Next time I'll make sure to restart all processes on reboot to make sure this doesn't happen again—and only reboot when I need to.

Thanks for your patience, everyone!

Hey Merveilles folks! I'm going to be rebooting the instance since I haven't in a while after upgrading. Should be just a few seconds of an outage.

See you all in just a bit! Thanks :D

Just set up a cronjob to automatically delete remote assets more than 7 days old on this instance!

Feels silly, "cron" was just a thing I knew about and was kind of scared to set it up because of the effort it takes to learn something new. Turns out it was super easy to run a daily process!

Merveilles.town Financials, January 2021 

Hey all, hope you've had a great start to the year! I have a couple pending tasks for this month:

1. Run an instance-only survey about migrating to Hometown
2. Add documentation for how to invite new folks
3. Add new moderators to our documentation & about page

We recently changed our guidelines for inviting new folks, so I'll be adding a pull request for that soon. Thanks, and stay safe! :merveilles:
