Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck.

Hello!

I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

Yeah, the "no looking at your hands" rule is fine for me, and honestly I'm fine not looking at the screen too, but I'll often want to chane my sentence part-way through typing so being unable to backspace hurts. I thik rather than getting my ands too misplaced my main problem is just occasionally skipping leters due to tapping too lightly, though I wonder if my keyboard is getting old too as sometimes it doesn;t feel like it registers a key, usually shift.

If you enjoy sandbox games like Minecraft, one thing I think is a very underrated hobby/skill is building structures and worlds in Minecraft. This is probably the architect in me that has a weird fascination towards that, but I really enjoy building and watching people build massive structures and trying to recreate stuff from the real world in the virtual. I don't think people realize how much is put into world building for big servers like Hypixel for example.

Don't just reserve yourself to Minecraft. Maybe you spend alot of time in community games like VRchat? You could pick up unity and start making sketch worlds and refine them into interesting worlds. Hell, If you get really good at it, You could apply those skills into a job at a studio!

I realized that I never learned how to play chess. Nobody in my family plays it anymore so I never bothered to learn. But after reading so many amazing stories about this game I really felt urge to learn it and get decent at it.
Couple of days ago I started playing regularly on lichess; I'm still really bad but it has been lots of fun so far.

Do you have any interesting stories about chess? Any tips for beginner like me?

What are you having to drink, fellow rolls?

I went out for dinner tonight and had a few different drinks: a cocktail called Chuck Norris which was bourbon, ginger and lemon; two different drinks in a jar; one spiced rum, pineapple, lime and ginger ale, and the other bourbon, orange, cinnamon and ginger ale. Finished off with some sake. Delicious times all round.

Making the journey to the alcohol shop tomorrow again to restock the cache, having a hard time deciding on what to get.
Never had pastis before, so quite curious about a bottle of that. Only have budget for one bottle more, and being pulled between either whisky cause that's nice, gin because the local alc. store finally got in plymouth which I've been curious to try because I've seen good reviews of it and I like gin… But also have a hunch that pastis and gin might be of slightly the same territory as pastis tastewise. Then also have a craving for some Gammel Dansk (danish bitter snaps) which is really good in coffee. But again, it almost has some almost liquorice character in it, and pastis has anise tones, again with the territory problem.
Maybe writing that out help me figure, feel like I should go for whisky & gin, and then the bitter snaps has half size bottles available so it's still within budget. And then I can postpone trying out pastis until there is hotter weather and some good company to enjoy it with as well. Though there is another domestic bitter snaps I want to try too… I am not good at making decisions. ;_;

>>10902 again post hooch run, the whisky I had in mind was out of stock so went for a slightly more expensive one I've been meaning to try (Bunnahabhain Mòine). And ended up getting just the pastis after all because that was what was calling me when browsing the bottles (and also cause with pastis you just need cold water to drink as intended, while the gin I'd need to go and get tonic too). And a couple of beers.

 No.10917

Excuse the triple, but figure the tasting notes is the most important part. Didn't notice until I was looking at the bottle that the whisky is 46% rather than the usual 40% almost all spirits available here are. Surprisingly smooth and round though in spite of that. Almost as if someone had dissolved fudge in spirits. Very gentle and almost muted. I did taste it right after opening, so hope it opens up a bit with some time.

The pastis was interesting. Essentially like drinking slightly floral liquid liquorice. Not sure it's my type of thing, but I didn't dislike it. Think it would do well under certain circumstances. Slightly annoyed at it though because even now a full day later with having the window open, my room still smells like pastis/liquorice. I don't understand how it can cling to the air so much, from just a single pour.

what's your experience with love? falling in it, falling out of it, one-sided or mutual.

currently i'm crushing very, very hard on what might be the most unreadable person on earth. i fell in love (i guess) when they asked the professor if they could step out of class and stumbled over whether to say "can i" or "may i". they went with the latter (and said please) and dropped their phone on the way out.

crushing this hard is like throwing my heart and brain in a blender and pulverizing them at the highest speed, but the blender short-circuits and the whole thing just combusts and explodes. i've always been a hopeless romantic, so this is a real weird mix of unsurprising and absolutely terrifying. i've never been so frustrated and so joyful in my life.

how about you, sushis?

My only loving relationship was with my literal yandere high school gf. We had a messy breakup and it left me with a very skewed understanding of love. Those negative experiences irreparably influence my attempts at relationships to this day.

In college I met a really wholesome girl who I call Sunflower Girl, that helped me recover from yandere gf. She had a boyfriend though, and eventually moved overseas, so I could only ever really love her as a friend. Once, however, she came back to the US and I spent the last $25 in my bank account to buy flowers and train tickets to go surprise her at the airport. I'll never forget the hug she gave me when she recognized me waiting for her at the terminal. That was a very happy moment between the two of us, and I think the closest thing I'll ever experience to pure love.

These days, my understanding of love is almost entirely philosophical and idealized musings taken from fictional depictions. Honestly, I don't think I could trust another person enough to experience love in a proper relationship right now.

Things haven't progressed any farther with her, but I'm okay with that given the surrounding circumstances. I'm just trying to brave through the rest of the pandemic as best I can, but I hope I'll have the mental energy to return to this kind of thing later. Hopefully with the next academic year!

Sushi, I hope you'll eventually get to a point in your life where you can trust someone else fully, even if there's no romance in that relationship. Deep down, I think we're all chasing that idealized feeling of romance.

I have had alternating periods of hard crushes and feeling nothing since my early teens, which is pretty normal. I've turned down 2 girls and been turned down twice. I kick myself to this day for not asking out my classmate in 8th grade who I really liked, she was super cute and in hindsight was practically throwing rocks signed "i like you" at my head. Live and learn I guess.
My only experience with a relationship was this past fall. I met a girl a couple years older than me online, she initiated and escalated the relationship, and it was the first (and only, so far) I've felt romantic feelings requited at all. It was not a perfect relationship but I was happy for a while. Then she stopped being as responsive, wouldn't respond when I could see she was online gaming. Eventually she called off the relationship and I was really torn up about it for about a month. That ended up kind of costing me our mutual friend group, especially after I found out she started dating the guy she'd been gaming with shortly after. Didn't feel betrayed for long, after that it was just apathy. She messaged me recently and I brushed her off. I don't know if/when I'll have my next relationship, but it will be difficult for me to allow myself to be vulnerable, which was something I had only just learned to start doing with her.
Sorry for writing a novel, but it helps for me to go through the whole story.

>Why/What do you think it´s selfish though? It´s just a way someone is, it´s not like it´s some intentional behavior.
When people reach out to me I feel it's necessary I reply with the same gesture and reach out to them, especially since they put out the effort to contact me. Typically I don't though, so my contacts naturally drift apart. Regardless if it's my personality or not, I made the decision not to contact them, so I think it's selfish. That's my line of reasoning.

I don't like the insinuaiton that an imageboard must have instantaneous responses to every post and threads that die within a week in order to be "alive."

Sushichan is culturally richer than diet twitters like 4chan or reddit, it's fun to post here, and you don't have to dedicate more than 30 minutes every couple of days which means you can spend the rest of your day doing something productive or enjoyable instead of having the entire day expended interacting in a rage-inducing skinner box of misery and negativity like you would on 4chan, reddit, twitter, or any other "alive" forum. The slow pace is lax, its comfy - that's why you should consider the so-called "semi-dead" boards over the "living" ones. It's better for your soul.

If you don't like the slow pace and friendly atmosphere though, then you should consider sticking to a faster one like the aforementioned.

>Lainchan is all about politics where it used to be about hackerstuff so I just go in and shitpost these days.
That's not completely true. There's some politics on delta and the more humanities focused boards but it's not flame-war tier. I only really post on lambda though so take my take with a grain of kosher salt.

Political discussions might be inevitable online given the all-or-nothing political culture that America has propoagated online. In spite of that however: if you disregard the need to be polarized and always disagree on every issue (to be red-or-blue without any purple), try to understand the opposition as though they were your own opinions, to not treat every political dillemma like a moral one, to support your claims, to argue with intellectual honesty, to not spill the soykaf and to be nice to each other, then political discussions online are actually very decent and informative. /pol/ should not be the model of what online political discussions look like. Please don't shitpost on lainchan sushi roll, that ruins board quality (you shouldn't do it here either for that matter). Please keep shitposting on boards like 4shit, thank you very much.

I've see a post like this on every slow board I use.

"Lurk moar" is a staple of IB+TB culture which is only honoured in the breach. It undestandable that the expectation for lurking is diminished: big sites run on cycles of memes that repackage their archetypal ideas/behavior into novel forms. If participation is shallow enough that you only need to memorize a few memes and how they evolve[1], frankly one doesn't need to lurk at all. Such sites encourage "participation is growth" mentalities.

I wish there was a better guide that helped people transition to the slow internet. Lurking especially. From "How long should I lurk to acquire board culture?" to "What should I pay attention to while lurking?", I've never seen a good (general) guide to netiquette on slow boards. Not that anybody CAN really regulate new rolls/sushi rolls. It feels as though we've just kind of resigned ourselves to Eternal September 2.0
