Making connections with others

2021.09.19 00:46 DarthMutter8 Making connections with others

Hi all. To preface I am not formally diagnosed but I am at the point in my life where I consider it fact that I am autistic. I self diagnosed about a year ago after wondering for over a decade but it isn't something I discuss with anyone.
Anyway. One area that I have always particularly struggled with is making connections. I would run away from kids on the playground because I didn't know how to react when they'd ask me to play or I just didn't want to. As I grew older when I wanted to make some connections it was always very difficult. I had periods of having connections but nothing long term. I go back and forth where I care a lot and feel immensely hurt about this to not caring at all. It is not something I ever wanted my kids to worry about but now here I am worrying about my son. It's not something I even sure is an autistic thing or if it is a me thing.
He (almost 10yo) is also not diagnosed but he has lots of quirks, mannerisms, and behaviors that make me think he is on the spectrum. He is a bit different than I am socially. He gets a long with most kids. They seem to like him and he isn't bullied. He is never invited to anything at all now that class parties seem to be a thing of the past for this age. He is in a small cub scout pack literally 5 kids for his age level. They all get along and play so well! I just saw the one kid had a party. I saw the other kids in the photos yet my son wasn't invited. He doesn't play with any of the kids in the neighborhood but has friends on the bus. He switched schools almost 3 years ago and I haven't met any of his school friends. I wrote my number down to give to his friends but I never heard from any of the parents. Just things like this. He has never had a playdate with a friend. It seems like every other kid has all these playmates and close relationships. It hurts me to see him not have that when I went through the same thing.
Does this resonate with anyone else? I am especially interested for those who have kids too. I know not every autistic is socially inept so I am hope I am coming off the right way and if not please correct me. Maybe I am over thinking this all. Thanks for reading my rambling.

I was reading some comments on a post on Reddit, and a lot of them were saying that Honey (the browser extension) steals your data and resells it. Honestly, I don't see why I should care. As long as it isn't directly harming me, I couldn't care less. Facebook, Reddit, Honey, you name it... I don't care what they do unless it seriously affects me. What's the worst they can do, honestly?

2021.09.19 00:46 oldreddittome Ubehagelig (ulovlig?) oplevelse med G4S

Jeg blev låst inde på en parkeringsplads af GS4, der lukkede deres porte for tidligt. Parkeringspladsen har åbent til kl. 22 og porten blev lukket 21.55 (eller før). Dette gjorde, at min bil blev lukket inde og ikke kunne komme hjem.
Jeg får så fat i døgnbemandingen og de er sådan set flinke nok og sender nogle folk ud og siger, at vi ikke skal betale noget. Efter 2 timer møder der en meget ubehagelig mand op og kræver 1500kr for at lukke os ud (bøden er 600kr). Vi diskuterer så lidt frem og tilbage og han ender med ikke at ville lukke os ud, fordi vi ikke vil betale.
Vi ringer derefter til døgnbemandingen igen og de får så fat i deres medarbejder og tvinger ham til at lukke os ud. Han vil dog stadig have navn, adresse og bilens nummerplade. Så jeg tænker han godt kan finde på at sende os en bøde alligevel, han var meget kryptisk da han svarede på om vi ville få en bøde eller ej.
Hvad er det bedste at gøre i dette tilfælde? Krydse fingre for jeg ikke får en bøde? Er det bedst at anmelde det et sted, så det er noteret, hvad der er sket?

2021.09.19 00:46 Lonley_Island_Games Small creators making copywriter merch

I was wondering if there was some fair use room for small creators who sell merchandise from copyrights such as from animes? Example, are they legally protected if they create an “insert anime character here” but in a unique art style that wasn’t showcased in either the anime or manga said character is in?

2021.09.19 00:46 Fenrir555 Discord Integration

EP has always been restricted in its capabilities by the inherent nature of its medium through Reddit and whatever was the most popular form of chat room, which in recent times has been Discord. The lens in which the game has been viewed has been molded by these restrictions, and the mod team has always looked at alternative ways to enhance this experience and make it more flexible.
The use of Discord and its functions to assist the roleplay on Reddit has been an incredibly important one but has also come with a number of issues, mainly in distinctions between what actions are in character (IC) or out of character (OOC) as well as what needs to be represented on the subreddit or having to navigate difficult events such as an Imperial Diet through Reddit. Luckily, Discord has recently come to develop a series of new functions that have allowed the mod team to formalize a system that aims to resolve some of those issues and clear up some of the grey areas that have plagued EP in the past. The primary functions that have allowed this to become a thing are threads and tickets in Discord.
Most importantly, the ability for tickets in Discord to include any number of people and be perfectly private (that is, truly unseeable by those that would otherwise have access OOC but realistically would not have IC) gives a lot of leeway to the mod team. Anything from war preparations to secret meetings between monarchs to papal enclaves to marriage negotiations can be prepared and established through the ticket system. These tickets will be entirely IC for all members of the ticket and unseeable by those not added to the ticket by the moderating team. It is established that any information shared through a ticket to others is shared IC, and statements made there are understood to have been made IC. The fact that these are protected conversations that are impossible to have been seen by those that would not have been involved IC means these are conversations that cannot in any capacity influence others OOC actions, and protect the individuals from others who may be metagaming. Also importantly, this allows EP to properly expand the game to include the intrigue, backstabbing, diplomacy, and other era-relevant activities that were a major aspect of the times that are otherwise impossible to properly represent before. It will also aid in creating firm boundaries between out of character and in character actions. While before these sorts of things usually took place in group chats and DMs, they can now be entirely integrated into the ticket system. It's expected that because players now have this new system, if information is shared through DMs and group chats they are purely meta and should not be considered IC. This will also greatly expand the capabilities of the mod team to moderate these conversations and actions.
In addition to the new ticket system, there are also threads now. These will be utilized for larger, more semi-public events such as an Imperial Diet, a Sejm meeting, a French courtly party, or negotiations regarding an especially important treaty that would have representatives from all across the region. Regional channels and role-segregation will permit moderators to establish these events and restrict access as what makes sense IC, and discussions will be significantly enhanced and easier to handle through the formatting of Discord rather than gigantic multi-hundred comment Reddit posts. It's expected for both threads and many tickets to have results and other information posted on the subreddit to formalize and announce decisions made that would be publicly apparent, with the threads and tickets formed to simply aid in reaching that point. The mod team hopes that these changes will greatly improve the speed and ease at which the sub will be able to handle these sorts of events and moments that may have otherwise slowed it down or created conflict.
