Questions regarding moderating and the LW age restriction
  • I agree with what both @justlookingfordragon and @canthidium shared and if someone knows a user is under 18 years let us know.

  • Dr. Henry Kissinger Dies at Age 100
  • I had always assumed he died decades ago.

  • British Police are Using Period Tracker Data and Blood Tests To Investigate Patients Who Miscarry
  • You clearly have no clue as to what you are talking about and clearly are a misogynistic individual. Do not speak about things you have no understanding of.

  • Lemmy Moderation Tooling
  • I was wondering if that might be the case. Hopefully future Lemmy updates will allow for this.

  • Lemmy Moderation Tooling
  • I love that you can see when a report was created! Can reports be sorted by the time they were reported, like oldest to newest (or vice versa)? Or sort by community?

  • Finished Dungeon Crawler Carl - Any suggestions?

    Just finished the most recent Dungeon Crawler Carl book and look for suggestions! I also am a big fan of John Scalzi, especially those narrated by Wil Wheaton.

    The Lemmy.World Terms of Service now in effect
  • This is an understandable concern and was certainly not the intent to make users feel unsafe or less welcome. We are going to look at adding something to cover this.

  • The Lemmy.World Terms of Service now in effect
  • Currently Lemmy UI doesn't have that capability however Kbin shows who upvoted. You can also see the number of up/down votes a post has through certain apps such as Memmy.

  • The Lemmy.World Terms of Service now in effect
  • Correct! It is still in the works and will be coming out in the future.

  • Lemmy.world removes its rules against discrimination
  • I love some pineapple pizza!

  • It's like they know...
  • Yup!

  • Just beat Lies of P and I love it!
  • Watched FightinCowboy play the initial intro chapter and it looks pretty standard.

  • Just beat Lies of P and I love it!
  • I felt the same way when Dark Souls (and subsequent sequels) came out. Sekiro was the first game I had ever refunded on Steam when I rage quit it after couldn’t get through the tutorial level. I’ve since tried it again and made it to Genichiro but couldn’t beat him as it doesn’t let you grind to level up. It’s truly a game where you have to “git gud” and I’m simply not that good at parrying.

    Honestly the only reason I gave Bloodborne a try was because I saw someone else play who was a much worse gamer than I was, it was included on PS+, and I thought the world seemed really interesting. I absolutely do not think this genre is for everyone but when you can beat a boss, the rush is intense and addictive.

  • I am looking for a testers for text-based RPG/strategy game
  • This isn't a vintage/retro game and may be better suited in the c/games community.

  • Just beat Lies of P and I love it!

    My first soulsborne game was Bloodborne and is still my favorite of the FromSoft series with Elden Ring just behind it. Playing Lies of P has seriously reminded me of when I first played Bloodborne and so it probably gets special bonus points just for that. Now I just have to wait until Friday for Lords of the Fallen!

    IDF says Hamas fighters killed and decapitated babies at one kibbutz near the Gaza border
  • Locking this post for now due to its content and misleading headline.

  • can someone tell me what type of blanket this is
  • Could try a reverse image search but sadly you are probably out of luck trying to buy an identical one. I had a set of phenomenal bed sheets that I got as a gift and I was able to identify where they were from the care tag. Sadly they no longer made that particular type and I was just out of luck but maybe you will have better luck.

  • So wholsum 🙏🙏🙏
  • My grandmother raised chickens and there was rooster that used to harass my mother and her siblings and they hated the rooster. Apparently one day the rooster pecked at my grandmother's leg and then they had rooster stew for dinner. Point of the story is that roosters are assholes.

  • More Than 80 Percent Of Americans Can’t Afford New Cars
  • I’ve replaced the struts, alternator, and some sort of weird electronic thing, plus random small stuff in the last 3 years and plan to drive it until it literally dies.

  • More Than 80 Percent Of Americans Can’t Afford New Cars
  • Yup, can confirm. My car has so many issues and it’s just barely holding on but there is no way I can afford to buy a new car.

    Lies of P - Discussion

    Bought Lies of P last night and made it just past the first boss. I know some folks are comparing it to Bloodborne and I can see why they think that (damn chimney sweeps). I do like the game although I wish the dodge was better. Bloodborne had a sick dodge system and this one isn't quite there.

    Also, quite thrilled to have bought a game on PC that actually works. No major bugs, crashes, etc. which is really how it should be.

    Anyone have any thoughts, opinions on the game in general?

    2,000-Year-Old Roman Walls Discovered in Swiss Alps

    According to a SWI report, researchers have discovered the remnants of Roman walls in the foothills of the Alps while excavating a gravel pit in present-day Cham, a municipality in central Switzerland's canton Zug. Constructed some 2,000 years ago, the walls once surrounded a series of Roman buildings. The excavation also unearthed fragments from a plaster wall; iron nails; gold fragments of what may have been jewelry; and everyday items including bowls, millstones, glassware, crockery, and amphoras. The rare find, which the Office for the Preservation of Monuments and Archaeology called “sensational,” is the first in the area for nearly a century. The purpose of the building complex, which likely spanned more than 5,000 square feet, remains unknown. Further research will aim to ascertain its role in Roman society, whether a villa, an inn, a temple, or another type of building.

    Canaan’s Earliest City Gate

    What ancient site features the earliest city gate? In Israel, at least, that would be the Early Bronze Age site of Tel Erani. During a salvage excavation of the site by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), archaeologists discovered the impressive stone gateway built into the city’s mudbrick fortification wall. Dating to around 3300 BCE, Tel Erani’s city gate is now the oldest ever found in Israel, making it several hundred years older than the gate from Tel Arad, another Early Bronze Age city. But why did Erani’s residents need the gate in the first place?

    Votive Cache Unearthed in Sicily’s Valley of the Temples

    AGRIGENTUM, SICILY—According to a statement released by the Sicilian Region Institutional Portal, an excavation led by archaeologist Maria Concetta Parello at House VII b in Sicily’s Valley of the Temples has uncovered a votive deposit containing at least 60 terracotta figurines, oil lamps, small vases, bronze fragments, and bones. The deposit was found above a destruction layer attributed to the burning of the Greek city in 406 B.C. by the Carthaginians. Parello and her colleagues will try to determine if the objects were left by residents who returned to their ruined city.

    Bronze Age Pyramid Discovered in Kazakhstan

    TOKTAMYS, KAZAKHSTAN—The Miami Herald reports that a 4,000-year-old stone structure has been unearthed in northern Kazakhstan’s Kyrykungir monumental complex. “The steppe pyramid is built with great precision,” said Ulan Umitkaliyev of Eurasian National University. “It is a very sophisticated complex structure with several circles in the middle.” A large black stone with a flattened side sits at the end of each exterior wall, he added, while the walls are decorated with images of horses and other animals. Horse bones have also been found nearby, suggesting that the building may have been linked to a horse cult, Umitkaliyev explained. Pottery, gold earrings, and other jewelry have also been uncovered at the site.

    Letter From Albania - A Road Trip Through Time
    www.archaeology.org A Road Trip Through Time - Archaeology Magazine

    As a new pipeline cuts its way through the Balkans, archaeologists in Albania are grabbing every opportunity to expose the country’s history—from the Neolithic to the present

    As a new pipeline cuts its way through the Balkans, archaeologists in Albania are grabbing every opportunity to expose the country’s history—from the Neolithic to the present.

    In modern Albania, the mélange of historical cultures is packed so densely they often seem to collide. The national E852 highway follows the same bank of the Shkumbin River as an ancient highway, the Via Egnatia, which was first traveled by Roman soldiers around 200 B.C. The road was modernized and maintained for centuries thereafter, and it became the main thoroughfare between Constantinople and the Adriatic, facilitating communication and trade between Rome and the eastern lands of the empire. Today, luxury Mercedes swerve between transcontinental bicyclists taking in the lush Mediterranean landscape and donkey carts hauling towering piles of forage. The route winds gently past medieval Ottoman Turkish bridges and white obelisks from the Communist era immortalizing partisan battles fought during World War II. Scrappy tobacco fields and mounds of hay and cornstalks line the route, planted and stacked by hand, much as they have been for centuries.

    This primary ancient east-west artery of the Balkan Peninsula parallels, just to the south, another major European infrastructure project, one being built today: the Trans Adriatic Pipeline. The project, known as TAP, is laying 545 miles of pipe through northern Greece and Albania and under the Adriatic Sea, connecting existing Italian and Turkish pipelines to deliver Caspian gas to Europe by 2020. Perhaps counterintuitively, the massive construction project looks set to give an enormous boost to the study and preservation of Albania’s cultural heritage. During the Cold War, the hard-line Stalinist regime kept the country one of the world’s most isolated, and now this Maryland-sized country of three million is one of Europe’s poorest.

    TAP’s resources are enormous by local standards—and could turn out to be the single greatest injection of money and know-how for archaeological exploration ever seen in Albania. The overall budget for TAP is $5.3 billion and about a quarter of the pipeline’s total length will sit in Albania. Lorenc Bejko, a prehistorian by trade who is the head of the archaeology department at Tirana University and a senior cultural heritage adviser for TAP in Albania, estimates that ordinarily the annual spending by all Albanian institutions combined on archaeological fieldwork doesn’t surpass $100,000. According to the project agreement, all management of the impact on Albania’s cultural heritage—including construction monitoring, excavation, preservation, development of management plans, scientific analysis, and even scientific publications—is controlled by Albanian government institutions and paid for by TAP. These activities are worth millions of dollars.

    The odd geographical focus of the intensive TAP-funded archaeological work—a lateral route across the country 133 miles long, 124 feet wide, and typically a foot deep—coincides with the so-called right-of-way zone where the pipe will be buried. A rich variety of unrelated and unexpected ancient sites is being uncovered there: Neolithic settlements from Europe’s earliest farmers, along with Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman sites. Turan, a site used for almost 2,000 years, yielded one of the oldest known cemeteries in Albania, dating back to 700 B.C. Ottoman cemeteries have also been found. And a picturesque hilltop settlement near the village of Peshtan, inhabited from the early Byzantine to the late Ottoman periods, has a cobbled street connecting a Turkish bath, a sixth-century Christian church, and several substantial houses with views of the valley below.
