OH NO THE IMPENDING THREAT OF ACCESSIBILITY
SAVING PEOPLE FROM PANIC ATTACKS???? WHAT EVER WILL WE DO???? Think of the CHILDREN
Trigger warnings are literally a two scone blarb of “This might upset some one because xyz” y are ppl so annoyed?
ok! seriously! there’s a waterslide at Noah’s Ark water park in Wisconsin Dells that is fully enclosed and painted black and has little holes at intervals along the sides, so that when you’re going down it full speed it gives the illusion of flashing lights, and there is A WARNING POSTED OUTSIDE THE SLIDE THAT IT MAY CAUSE SEIZURES.
I NEVER HEARD ANYONE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SEIZURE WARNING ON A WATER SLIDE “OH DAMN THOSE SJWs”
Even the free rag, The Metro, puts trigger warnings in it’s pages (Ill thought out warnings for arachnophobes that feature a sufficiently detailed spider on the pages either side of the triggering page (They might have fixed that design flaw, not sure) but…) - When did warning people about potentially triggering content become an ‘blog’ thing?
Actually, lets go through this - Stuff that had trigger warnings before the rise of blogs: Television shows (“The following program contains strong language right from the start.”/”The following program contains content that some viewers may find disturbing.”/etc), stage shows (Epilepsy warnings for shows containing strobe lighting), music cd’s, films and video games… But somehow when blogs start doing it it becomes this weird internet thing?
When the fuck did common fucking decency become considered this weird thing that only overly sensitive folk on the internet do?
Probably around the same time TumblrInAction-style reactionary-comedy went semi-mainstream. Now the mainstream is picking up whispers of it, I guess.
was stuck for days on a nasty bug that showed up when the GUI was very zoomed out, but now I’ve fixed it in a completely overengineered way, no compromises. and now I’m back on track. also: velocity-colors work properly now.
just noticed I have to fix the sidebar’s tendency to have colorful stripes top-middle-bottom when it needs to relegate them to the summary-view, whoops. I think I know exactly what I did wrong there, actually.
next step after that: debug/test most of the data-manipulation functions. whew
