got very lucky and just happened to pick the right branch after the first set of plays to eliminate some possibilities ... also it's noted as a traditional joseki in OGS which consequently means it's not one of these _newfangled_ things out of alphago 😆

i lucked out on the initial stab having a lot of in-sequence but out-of-order moves, so i had a good inkling for what "direction" the joseki was going to go in

If you need to write HTML for a login or account management site, I got a little tip for you.

The input's "autocomplete" attribute can be more than just "on" or "off"!

You can actually set autocomplete to "username" or "current-password", to help a password manager find the right fields.

In the case of changing passwords, you can set autocomplete to "current-password" or "new-password" to avoid password managers trying to autofill your current password into the new password field.

Occasionally, you'll see someone argue that a topic is too important to "censor" behind a content warning.

The purpose of CWs is not to prevent people from seeing the warned-about content, but rather to prepare them to see it. That's especially necessary in a forum where posts come through in a steady stream, with barely any transition from one thought to the next. It helps people fight numbness, keep from feeling overwhelmed, and ultimately maintain their engagement with important issues.

the final move feels really far, but poking at it (at least at my level) i couldn't invade it sooooo i guess it's valid!

By far the greatest strength of this platform is a complete lack of an algorithm pushing promoted garbage. Discovering new people to follow from our friends and their reblogs is so refreshing, and helps us all grow closer. ❤️
