Infinite pagination was implemented, posting restrictions were reduced, emoji are supported in posts and profile bios, social links can be added from options page, accounts can be deleted, logging in with a magic link is possible, access keys for sidebar links were added, light theme is lighter and dark theme is darker.
I want to add social links to profiles. What other social networks do you use?
👍 🎹 hm no emoji support? :(
I can see them emoji in my head :) Thanks! I've been composing music on my live streams. People give me notes and I go from there.
I just thought there wasn't a way to see the parent until I posted that
It's more obvious for those of us that were there before the site's design changes I guess. We used to be able to read the reply with it's parent. Now the parent is collapsed.
I just found out that clicking the "0d ago" button brings you to the parent post. There really should be a more obvious button (or even a thing telling u what it does) for that.
I thought it was obvious since there isn't anything else to click on to see the parent post.
How do you deal with loss of motivation?
Sometimes there's no way. One thing that helps me is I keep track of what I'm doing over time. I wrote an article about that a while back: jeandavidmoisan.co... It's so easy to take yourself for granted and forget all that you went through to reach your current state.
That's awesome! Would the map editor be part of something else, or is it its own thing?
It's going to be brought back to the game I'm working on. rashtal.com I'll also be using it to speed up the development of my future gamejams.
What project are you all working on these days?
I'm doing a lot of gamedev. Right now I'm coding a map editor from scratch. It's such a fun thing to code. (MonoGame C#)
That was a great article. Also that conclusion was so perfect.
👍 Damn, missed it. Gamer-style setup, I see.
Yeah! It's a pretty fun setup. I stream daily lately catch me whenever. :D
Bit of both. Professional software dev as a junior (just started 2nd job, 1 yr experience) has so much friction setting up fragile environments that regularly break and understanding complex build processes and libraries that I can never get into the flow of things. It's a far cry from my personal projects (and even school assignments) where environments are easy and building is as simple as 'make'. I love to code when I actually know what I'm doing.
That's been my experience too working as a professional software dev. Going in, I expected everyone to have their own side projects, but most people seemed to not care about programming outside of work. Though going back further, while in university I was surprised how few people had done any coding before joining. (Not that there's anything wrong with any of that.) If you want to try something fun, join the MonoGame community, and try to make a simple game with it.
Where did the version of myself that was excited to program and advance my career go? They disappeared sometime after I got my first development job.
Do you have new passions now or you're just feeling down in general?
