2023.06.04 20:15 Ok-Camp-4613 Moving out of Sweden

After 15 beautiful months in Sweden (I relocated in 2022) my time has come to relocate to another EU country (Germany).
At the moment, I have an ongoing loan which I will need to keep paying for a couple more years. My idea is to fund my Swedish bank account until I pay the full amount of the loan. Is there any other technicality I am not aware of?
Also, I have an open Avanza account where I have a trading portfolio. I would like to keep that open, since the ISK account is very tax-forgiven when there is profit. However, since my fiscal residence will not be here, I'm afraid I will have to pay tax in both countries for my profits. Can I keep the account open as it it?
At last, for the past 15 months, my company has funded a private ITP1 pension fund. Do I need to withdraw my money and at which cost? Or I can keep it there and "forget" about it until I retire?
I know these questions could be answered by an accountant, so if you could forward me to one or to an comprehensive guide on these type of questions, I would be thankful.
Thank you in advance!

2023.06.04 20:15 Falcon_433 Mid/Late 2nd Round Rookie Draft Targets

Now that we are a month + out from the NFL draft and ADP has somewhat normalized, who are the best targets in the mid/late 2nd round of rookie drafts? We have seen this range produce some unlikely contributors in the last few years. Not to say that we should expect dominant fantasy contributors here, but hitting on your later picks (by hitting in this range, I mean guys that you could either flip for more value or will eventually be able to flex start, at the minimum) can be the difference between keeping a team liquid vs running out of assets.
The guys that seem to go in this range currently are:
Josh Downs, WR, IND
Marvin Mims, WR, DEN
Jalen Hyatt, WR, NYG
Sam Laporta, TE, DET
Tank Bigsby, RB, JAX
Roschon Johnson, RB, CHI
I am personally prioritizing Mims, Laporta, and Tank over these guys and other players going near this range.
I like Mims due to his ball tracking + yac ability, coupled with his draft capital and the fact Sean Payton traded up to get his guy. I don’t think the WR is room in Denver is as crowded as we’re lead to believe, as I think sutton will either be traded or let walk next year.
Laporta’s draft capital is unquestionable. Essentially a 1st round pick at 34 overall. He wasn’t super productive at Iowa, but Iowa’s track record with tight ends is pretty remarkable. Laporta is also tied to a seemingly ascending offense. The only knack I have with him is that he may be the 4th receiving option in that offense when everyone is playing (behind ARSB, Jameo, and gibbs).
I am a Bigsby fan due to the flashes he showed at Auburn and his day two capital. Similar to laporta, bigsby finds himself in a seemingly ascending offense. Obviously ETN is RB1, but all signs point to a legitimate portion of working being available for Tank. I believe tank will get more receiving work than most think too. Tank also becomes one of the premier handcuffs, but even so I think he will offer some flex upside this year regardless.
Would love to hear thoughts from the community on this topic. Apologies if another recent post basically posed the same question. Cheers

Our website:

If your agency is making between $10-30k per month, you’re sitting on an absolute goldmine and you have no idea.
After running my agency for 4 years, delivering over $100M worth of value to my clients, and generating 8 figures in total revenue, I’ve realized that any agency can be a massive business with the right mechanisms in place.
When I began building my agency in 2018, it was a good business for me and my partner.
It put food on the table, and we were able to help to grow other businesses that we were passionate about.
We didn’t realize at the time that the only thing keeping us at the mid-6-figure per year mark was our own mental blockages.
Just about any agency can be an 8-figure a year endeavor, especially if you do it the way that we’ve done it.
Most agency owners in the $10-30k per month range operate within a freelancer mindset.
You struggle with hiring, you struggle with building processes, and you struggle with scaling.
You do not have a demand problem.
For every agency, there are at least 500 potential clients with a problem that your agency can solve, and they’re willing to pay good money for you to do so.
With the right offer, 100-200 clients will be enough for you to have an 8-figure a year company that will sell for a multiple that could be in the range of 6-12X.
This course consists of 10 modules with text and video, plus 3 bonus modules that outline everything you need to know about:
  • Building systems for scaling fast
  • How to diversify your lead generation to never have an empty pipeline again
  • Assembling a team of people who care about your company’s vision as much as you
  • Remaining profitable as you scale
  • Avoiding mistakes at the intermediate and advanced levels with your business
  • The steps you need to take to sell your agency for 8+ figures
As long as you have an offer that’s proven to work in an industry that’s likely to continue to exist in 10 years, you have a multi-million dollar opportunity at your fingertips.
At the $10-30k a month level with an agency, you’re currently working harder than you will be at $100k a month.
The good news is, you’re only a few months away from hitting that target profitably if you do exactly what I outline in this course.
After thousands of mistakes in the building process, I know exactly what I’d do if I had to start from zero.
If you’re just starting, you have the opportunity to build everything right and avoid 90% of the mistakes that we made in the early days.
Instead of taking 4 years to scale to ~8 figures like my team and I did, you could potentially do it in half the time.
Before you buy, you need to understand this.
This course will work for any agency in the digital space, but it is not for beginners.
This is not to show you how to land your first client and find your niche.
This will only work if you have at least 2-4 clients and you already understand your offer.
My strategies for client acquisition, client retention, offer structure, team building, and systems will only work if you already have the foundations in place.
If you’re above $60k a year but below $1M a year, this will work for you.
Inside, I also share information about my agency that I’ve never shared before.
I do a deep dive into everything that’s allowed us to scale from high-6-figures in 2019 to high-7-figures in 2021.
Everything from the way you need to think about things, to the way you need to execute things.
I leave nothing out of this.
If you’re ready to scale your agency from $10-30k a month up to 6 figures a month, click below to get access to everything you’ll ever need today.

2023.06.04 20:15 fortifiedoptimism When is it safe after bed bugs?

My friend got bed bugs a couple months ago. They did the whole bed bug bomb thing and Orkin came out to treat for bed buds multiple times. It’s going on maybe a little over a week of them telling me they haven’t had bites or seen any bugs. I’m not ready to go over yet. I turned down an invitation this weekend and have an excuse to not hang next weekend. But even after that I’m scared to go hang out in their bedroom. Their house even. 100% will change before going back into my apartment and wash my clothes before they can touch anything in here. I don’t want to track them into my car either though. Anyone have some advice for paranoid me?
How do I know it’s safe? Is there a recommended time frame?

2023.06.04 20:15 LokiMurphy Landlord wants to charge rent and bills separately to reduce tax liability

Two months ago I moved into a house as a lodger and signed an agreement to pay £900 per month rent, inclusive of bills. All of the bills are in the landlord’s name and he pays them.
This is the first time the landlord has a rented out a room and seems to have only just realised they will have to pay tax on the income received from me over £7500. They are also in the process of trying to rent out a second room.
The landlord said that in order to reduce their tax liability, they want to start charging me separately for rent and bills - so something like £600 per month for rent and £300 per month for bills.
I said I am no expert, but this sounds slightly dodgy and that if it were this easy, then surely every landlord would charge separately like this for rent and bills. Plus getting a second lodger will definitely put them way over the £7500 rental income threshold.
My questions are: 1: is what my landlord is proposing to do legal, or will need to get him in trouble with the tax man? 2: if the answer to number 1 is this is not legal, am I liable if I go ahead with making these separate payments like he has asked for?

2023.06.04 20:14 nitager Should I include this 1 month job on my resume?

I (25M, Europe) finished my master's degree in Economics in December last year. I only got my first job in April, but ended up leaving at the end of the trial month because the job didn't meet my expectations at all and didn't match what the company had advertised in the offer, in addition to other personal problems.
Now I am facing a dilemma: should I omit this 1-month experience from my resume and show a half-year gap, or its better to include it and risk facing negative interpretations in future interviews? I have no extracurricular activities or internships to show, so my resume is made up only of academic degrees. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

2023.06.04 20:14 hidesawell How to know if it's anxiety for sure?

So I've been having a bad couple of months.
I've always had mild anxiety and depression (though the depression got much better after finding I was severely vitamin D deficient) but it rarely manifested in physical ways beyond just general tiredness or restlessness. For the most part it was always a mental thing that I could clearly recognize.
Back in March, however, i started experiencing heart palpitations. I assumed it was due to too much caffeine, but one night I woke up and felt this strange rush to my head like I was gonna pass out. We went to the ER and doctors found 0 things wrong with my heart. They said it was either the caffeine (I hadnt had any for 2 days at that point) or a panic attack.
I went to a cardiologist to be safe because the feeling in my chest persisted for several days. My echo cardiogram was normal and I wore a heart monitor for a couple weeks. No sign of heart issues.
I started going to therapy, but was still not convinced it was anxiety because the chest pressure and palpitations were constant and didn't seem to change depending if I was stressed or relaxing. My mood also didn't seem to effect it much. Breathing exercises don't really help much if the feeling is 24/7
My doctor tried prescribing steroids incase it was an infection in my chest. That did seem to help with the pain. But the palpitations and tension never really went away.
I've gotten light headed and those weird head rushes a couple of times the past few months, but for the most parts it is centered in the chest.
Has anyone had this type of experience? The fact that it is so consistent makes me doubt that it's mental, but that still seems to be the main theory.

2023.06.04 20:14 Jvalles71 [In Progress] [43.7k] [YA Fantasy] Shattered: Book 1

Hello everyone! I'm looking for beta readers or a critique partner for a novel I'm working on currently. It’s not completed yet, but what I have so far is the introduction into the series and I want to see how well it works with readers. This is my first official work although I've written other manuscripts before. This novel has gone through a lot of edits. I'm looking to iron out the final kinks in the story so far so I can fix any issues and get started on the rest of the story. My plan is to create a whole series so I would say think of this part as the introduction before the main story.
Summary: With his village plagued by a deadly disease known as the white plague, Kazone Marlock, along with his cousin Karen and villager Rai, embark on a mission to find a cure. Immune to the disease themselves, they are sent by their village elders to find a cure to the untreatable disease. Their journey takes a supernatural turn when Kazone encounters a celestial apparition—a Taurus of the zodiac—who tasks him with retrieving magical and powerful shards scattered across the globe in exchange for healing his afflicted people. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, 15-year-old Eva Sauburn's life takes an unexpected turn when she is attacked by a rogue treasure hunter. Saved by her long-lost grandfather, Elric, Eva discovers her unique ability to destroy powerful and mysterious ancient shards. Learning of her fugitive terrorist father's involvement and convinced by her grandfather about the reasons to destroy the powerful shards Eva sets out on a journey with her grandfather to uncover the truth and confront the adversaries who seek the ancient shards. As Kazone and Eva along with their perspective comrades traverse a treacherous world, they encounter powerful allies and dangerous foes, including renowned monster hunters, corrupt officials, and enigmatic treasure seekers. Unbeknownst to them, the shadowy antagonist Stavick, driven by revolutionary ideas, seeks to collect the shards for his own purposes and has amassed a formidable following. The race to retrieve the shards becomes a high-stakes battle, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Amid conflicting emotions and the seductive allure of the shards, the protagonists must navigate their own personal struggles and confront the darkness within themselves. As their paths intertwine, Kazone, and Eva will face formidable challenges, testing their strength, resolve, and unwavering bonds. The journey will reveal hidden truths, shape their destinies, and determine the fate of their world. In this epic tale of adventure, danger, and self-discovery, the protagonists must overcome their pasts, confront their deepest fears, and ultimately choose between succumbing to the darkness or emerging as the heroes their world desperately needs.
Feedback: I am looking for any type of feedback, positive, negative, constructive, anything that’ll help me craft a better story and become a better writer. Feedback on the plot, or character even motivations and goals literally anything and everything. If you have a thought at all please just let me know. I really appreciate harsh critiques so don’t think you're hurting my feelings or being offensive. Please ask any questions, let me know any comments or concerns. Swaps: I am really down for swaps, i would definitely love to read your work if you're interested in swapping. My story is a YA Fantasy novel, but I'm still down to read anything you have to offer. I'm free for the next few months so I have a lot of free time to read.
For anyone interested, here is the first 10 pages:

2023.06.04 20:14 IPAnemagal Indian boyfriend [M27] blames aloofness and being distant on his culture. I [F25] am starting to consider this a red flag.

Boyfriend [M27] and I [F25] have been dating for almost a year. Friends for the first 6 months and then became “official” beginning of this semester. I am a latina foreigner and he is from India.
We are both grad students so our “time off” school duties is very limited. His degree is actually much more demanding than mine so I have a lot more free time compared to him.
When we started dating I realized he wasn’t much of a texter, not even with his mom. I personally think texting at least once a day is necessary when you and your partner are away. Since we would usually see each other every night I didn’t mind he didn’t text me during the day.
We were away for a month before we became official and I was usually the only one initiating phone calls or texting him updates funny stuff every now and then. Again, we weren’t official yet so I brushed it off.
Sam and I are currently away and have been away for a month but finally seeing each other again next week. All the phone calls we’ve had (about 3) have been initiated by me and I am still the only one texting. I want to bring this issue up but I don’t want him to think I don’t like him as a person or don’t really love him. I consider him to be my best friend and totally adore him.
He says his inability to be more communicative and loving is because in India, a lot of couples do not show that much love to each other. I understand Indian and Latin culture are different but my Indian friends show their feelings a lot unlike Sam.
I can’t help but compare this relationship to past ones. It is true that I didn’t feel the connection I have with Sam before but whenever I was away, me and former partners would constant be in touch with light updates.
He’s brought up, multiple times, that growing up his parents never used words of affirmation with him and he’s never even said I love you to them and that’s why it’s hard for him to communicate his actual feelings to me.
edit: he is not having an arrange marriage. His parents are very open minded and modern. I would see myself being with him for the long term.
Is this a red flag I should ignore as we all are different people?
tl;dr: bf is terrible at words of affirmation/keeping in touch when away. Is this a red flag that could be ignored early on in the relationship?

It does not happen every day but I cant help but worry. He will be lying down with no one interacting with him and all of a sudden he will growl and bite his tail. Its as if hes in a daze. I do not touch him in the moment and I just wait until I give him a command he knows well and he snaps out of his trance. Is this a cause for concern?

2023.06.04 20:14 throwra1919weieis My 25F boyfriend 30M keeps cheating but I keep going into denial

My F(25) boyfriend M(30) of a year cheated the first nine months with his FWB of seven years. He saw her more than he saw me and would sleep with her before our dates. She told my entire family and all his friends he was cheating and he admitted to it. I stayed and wanted to prove his innocence. He’s my first boyfriend and I feel like we were in love, his soul and mine are the same.
My brother catfished him on tinder and we broke up for two days and got back together. I didn’t tell anyone about this and kept posting him.
He tried to get back with his FWB and eventually they began sleeping together and dating again. He told her he wouldn’t make her public so she messaged ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. She sent them messages of them sexting and how good it felt when he “came inside her”. He wanted to continue being friends but she said she’s not a hidden secret.
All my friends told her she has no self respect and we are going to the police for pornography. We went to the police but they said what she did wasn’t wrong or crossing lines. She didn’t seem dangerous.
All my friends and family wanted me to break up with him and confront him. I messaged her “move on”. This made her flip out and she told me she has free will and don’t tell her what to do. If it’s not her it’s someone else. She told me she’ll have a three way with my boyfriend now.
I confronted him, he admitted to it and we broke up.
I still hope somehow him and I end up happy together and I want to go back to a time before it was too late. My brother said it’s not me it’s him and it was never too late he was cheating the whole time. I feel I can’t even hate him for breaking my heart.
I want to get back together. Everyone keeps saying I am in denial and I need serious therapy. That I’m not grasping the situation.
How do I get out of denial and correct my thinking?
TL;DR: boyfriend cheated the entire relationship with the same girl. He keeps going back to her and cheating. We will break up and get back together. My head then goes into denial and I’m more mad at her for telling everyone our business. She said she’s helping me. How do I stop going to denial?

2023.06.04 20:14 mayhalleday My (25f) bf (25m) exchanged social media info with another girl at a party, and I don’t know what to think

Me and my bf have been dating a few months. Things are new but we care deeply for eachother.
I recently brought him to a party to meet my friends for the first time. He was being super social and great. I new pretty much everyone there, and I introduced him to many people.
At one point, a few girls showed up that I didn’t know (and neither did the host). One in particular I saw talking to my bf, but I thought “whatever” as he was being social with everyone.
I went to the bathroom with a friend (to chit chat, as girls do) and when I came back, my bf and this girl were playing beer pong together. At one point I saw me bf put his arm around her shoulder, and I pointed it out to my friend who didn’t think it was a big deal. I think it was a “congratulations” type things cuz they won the game.
Anyways, my bf later on in the night came up to me and gave me a kiss and started talking to me. He said he was having lots of fun. A few moments later the girl came around and she was super quiet and looked uncomfortable. I wondered if maybe she just realized he was with me.
Anyways, the next day I pointed out to him that I didn’t know who that girl was or how she got invited. I said I was gunna check the invite list on Facebook but I didn’t know her name. He told me her name, then started spelling it out (it was unique spelling). I asked him how he knew the spelling, and he said she asked him to add her on Instagram, so he did infront of her. That was basically how she introduced herself to him, by asking this. I opened her Instagram and saw they were following eachother, and that he likes the most recent pic of her and her dog. I asked why he liked the pic, and he said he did it while talking to her, cuz she mentioned her dog.
I told him I think that crossed a line. It appeared to me like flirting at that point. He told me it was friendly, that he didn’t think adding someone on insta was cheating, and he thought that I had known the girl since I knew everyone else at the party (which is true). The night of the party he also told me he loved me for the first time. I just feel confused.
He then unliked the pic. I asked for him to unfollow her, and he did.
I trust there has been no communication since. I just worry about why he thinks that’s okay. Why didn’t he just say no?

2023.06.04 20:14 AbigailQuinn18 Just fed up, any advise?

So basically I’ve never been able to hold it for long but when ever I see the toilet I get an instant rush and it feels like I’m holding it all between my legs as when I do make it to the toilet it all rushes at once (pretend to fill your hands with water and then think if you seperated your hands quickly, it all flushes down quickly)
This means I’m soaking the back of my underwear, my pad, the floor, even sometimes the wall because it’s just this one big gush of water, all. The. Time!
To lessen the time it takes in the bathroom to the toilet I’m having to get undressed in my room before reaching the bathroom but obviously that just delays the time in which I get to a bathroom so isn’t the most useful
I’ve been doing the pelvic floor exercises, I can’t cut back on drinking as it’s getting to the summer months but I just don’t know what to do
Any advice?

2023.06.04 20:14 Purple_Pineapple__ Vent/Advice for 15 yr old

The first thing I think to say “sorry I was being immature” but why do I feel sorry. Why am I expected to be mature? I’m 15. 15 yr olds are immature. I knew before I started talking that what I was going to say was immature. But I said it anyways. I do that a lot. I go against my so-called “mature nature” to allow myself to behave like a kid. Because that’s what I am. A kid. I want to have a childhood and desperately so. I try to allow myself to have childish thoughts and behaviors while I’m still a child. “I do that with your (older) siblings too.” That’s my problem. My brother is an adult (20) and my sister is becoming one next month (turning 18). Why am I expected to do the same things he (my brother) does? Why am I expected to be at his maturity level. I feel like she forgets that I’m not 20. I’m 15. I just wanted her to introduce me to new foods instead of me having to do it all alone (I’m autistic and new foods stress me out). “I’m worried you can’t think for yourself” she says on repeat. No I can (or at least I think I can). The issue is I’ve been doing it for so long and I want to be able to give myself a break while I’m still a kid. I want a guide. Not someone who merely provides me the ingredients. I want someone who helps me look through the recipes instead of making me do it alone. Why am I upset about this?
This is literally what I asked for. To be treated like a roommate. Why do I expect a parent when I specifically asked for her to work on herself saying that I can take care of myself. (Sorry that this lacks context)
Why must I feel bad that I have to keep my word? Why must I feel bad that I have to continue to take care of myself?
This is what I asked for.
What is wrong with me?
I really should stop trying to vocalize what few childish thoughts survived through my trauma. Every time I do It always feels futile. I’m always met with frustration. “Why is this kid behaving like a kid?” I try my best thanks. I will stop though. I will stop vocalizing my childishness, maybe one day even fewer will remain. Hopefully one day less will remain or it’ll be easier..
I’ve learned my lesson (i hope. Because if I haven’t I will be forced to experience this once more)
Maybe I’m just another kid who’s convinced themselves they’re “mature for their age” spouting nonsense in order to feel grown up (that’s honestly probably the case). Maybe I’m not mature whatsoever. Maybe I think like most children do. Maybe 15 isn’t a child. Maybe 15 is what I see to be 18 (I feel like 18 yr olds are still immature). Maybe I have 15 yr old’s all wrong. Maybe we should be self sufficient. Maybe we should be taking care of ourselves.
Maybe I’ve convinced myself 15 yr old’s are basically 7 yr olds in disguise in order to make myself feel better. Maybe I have us all wrong. I mean we are more independent than 7 yr olds. We can think for ourselves and even take care of our parents and small children if need be. Maybe the expectations placed on me aren’t comparable to my 20 year old brother but to other people my age. Why wouldn’t I be expected to find out what I want on my own and make my own damn food everyday? It’s not asking that much from someone who’s 15. As my mother just stated “you’re 15. Not 7” Maybe this IS what normal 15 yr olds think about. Maybe I’m not the “old soul” that others claim, but a soul who’s aged normally. Maybe I just have a major victim complex and always frame myself to be the victim. If that’s the case I’m not nearly as self aware as I had thought. I need to self reflect more and stop feeling so damn bad for myself. That thinking isn’t healthy and only harms others around me and myself. I should grow instead of being so stagnant. Any advice for that? I’ve started meditating and I’d like to do whatever I can to stop behaving this way. I hope I didn’t waste your time. Who am I kidding you’re on Reddit (but I guess so am I lol) Do I sound victimy? Please be honest. Don’t worry about being harsh (srsly u don’t have to validate me just be honest) side note/ I promise I’m usually not this hard on myself I just want to grow sorry this lacks context :P

2023.06.04 20:14 CartographerHot2285 Traffic situation this year

I have commented about this 2 or 3 times already and figured it was worth a separate post.
Traffic will be (a lot) worse than other years.
Retieseweg (one of the main roads to Graspop) has roadworks going on and part of it is only open in the direction away from Graspop (to Geel is open, to Graspop is closed).
This temporary one way is from the crossing of Retieseweg and Castelsebaan (the traffic lights at the bridge close to Graspop) until the railroad crossing near the centre of Geel (close to Sjegers drankenhandel).
If you arrive from Retie (E34), there's no roadworks but there will be more traffic because the other way is closed.
If you arrive from Geel (E313), you will have to follow a big detour. I'd advise to set your GPS to Galaxy Studio (recording studio in Mol). Once you're at the side street where Galaxy is, set your gps to Graspop. It will send you over the Castelsebaan, which avoids the roadworks and one way street and is very close to the festival. This is the easiest detour and the one I've been using.
Source: I live at Retieseweg on the temporary one way part, it's been one way since at least oktober and it's gonna be for at least a couple more months. We have not received any communication about a temporary change in the situation to accommodate for Graspop.
It's gonna be a literal highway to hell this year.
Fun fact: Galaxy Studio is where Manowar usually records their albums.

2023.06.04 20:13 Weirfish [Modpost] Coordinated Moderation Action regarding Reddit's API update.

As some of you may already know, in its lead up to an IPO in the second half of this year, reddit is making some significant changes to its website.
One of these changes, among many, is the monetisation of reddit's third party API. The monetisation of this API is expected to cost approximately £12,000 per 50 million requests, which is astoundingly high. The creator of the third party reddit app Apollo expects this to cost $1.7mil a month for their app, a figure which has been corroborated in scale by the developers of Reddit Is Fun, and Narwhal.
Apollo's developer compares this to $166 for the same number of calls to Imgur, which is lower by two orders of magnitude.
Apollo's creator's post goes into the most granular detail on this, but the general consensus is that this is a ridiculous price that acts not to cover the cost of the API, its requests, and its ongoing development, but rather to tacitly shut down third party apps so that reddit's first party app (which is generally considered to be of significantly lower quality than all significant third party apps) is the only one that can afford to supply the platform.
In addition to this, the API will also only be able to provide an inferior service compared to third party apps, by restricting what kind of content is available via the API (and thus via those third party apps).
This is a problem for a number of reasons.
  1. Third party apps have much better moderation tools.
  2. Third party apps have much better accessibility tools, especially for the visually impaired.
  3. Third party apps allow you to control, at least to a certain degree, the adverts you a served and how and where they are served.
  4. Third party apps have almost universally better UX/UI than reddit's app.
  5. Third party apps tend to be lightemore efficient than reddit's app.
The long and the short of the problem is that reddit is muscling out superior products by leveraging their market dominance in the pseudononymous persistent social media space, to the detriment of the people who actually use reddit.
To protest this, there is a coordinated effort from subreddit moderators. Many moderators rely on third party API-driven tools to do their moderation appropriately, and almost every single one of these tools will be forced into retirement, and can only reduce the quality of moderation on the website.
I should be clear that I do not do any moderation via mobile app, so this change is unlikely to directly affect this subreddit. That said, (and while I don't want to sincerely compare this to WW2), there is something to be said for collective action for allies' causes. Further, while I do not use third party apps for moderation, I do almost exclusively use, which is looking at the API on the chopping block while sweating bullets.
Last time a coordinated moderator effort of this size was enacted, we did not go dark. While /3d6 has grown beyond what I could have hoped for when I started moderating this space, it has never been, and is not currently, a particularly public, /all -y subreddit, so the impact of our individual protest would have been minimal, and I considered /3d6's potential use as escapism more valuable to those affected than said impact could have been.
That said, the way this is shaking out, this particular issue is more of an existential threat to the subreddit. So this time, I want to open this to community consensus. So, I have two questions, and one request.

1. Is it appropriate for us to go dark in protest of this change to reddit's functionality?

2. Is there another appropriate method for this subreddit to protest this change?

And my request; please don't use reddit for the 48 hours of June 12th and June 13th. If we don't go dark, I will be here for moderation purposes, but if we do, I will be taking a break for the period.
Finally, please remember rules 1, 4, 5, and 10. Don't be a dick, don't insult reddit staff members, etc. There is plenty to criticise without debasing the argument with ad hominem.

2023.06.04 20:13 rubyruined Review The Memory of Souls by Jenn Lyons (A Chorus of Dragons, #3)

I write book reviews on Half Past Midnight, a blog dedicated to the surreal world of fantasy and science fiction. A few days ago, I posted reviews for the first two books in this series. While this review does not have spoilers about book 3, it does have spoilers for books 1 and 2.
Welcome to my humble appreciation post for the third book in the A Chorus of Dragons series. Or better yet - call it the rollercoaster which never ends.


The Name of All Things ended on a bitter note with the destruction of Atrine after Morios completely wrecked the city. Vol Karoth, previously imprisoned for thousands of years, is now finally awake. Relos Var won (once again). Things tend to go your way when you've planned each of your steps centuries ahead of your enemies.
Although not fully free of his bonds, Vol Karoth has now woken up from his deep slumber. That is pretty terrifying. Knowing that some part of Kihrin's soul is somehow connected to this dark, endless entity is also terrifying.
No one could truly see Vol Karoth. He formed a man-size hole cut from reality, a silhouette of absolute, perfect blackness. His appearance offered up the final, absolute proof of my worst nightmares: Vol Karoth was free.
The only thing that can possibly stop the utter annihilation of the world is the ancient Ritual of Night. Meant to be enacted by the leader of an immortal race, this ritual could give the Eight more time to figure out how to deal with the impending destruction of the world. As it turns out, it can only be performed once by each race, and at a terrible cost. Since its creation, The Ritual of Night has already been enacted by three of the four immortal races - the voras, voramer, and vordreth - leaving only the vané. They have just one shot to do it, and to do it right.
Kihrin, Janel, Teraeth, and Thurvishar start this book with a single objective - to convince the vané king, Kelanis, to perform The Ritual of Night. And as usual, nothing goes according to the plan. Why am I not surprised?
Traveling to Manol makes for quite a change from the usual locales we are accustomed to, and boy - is it fun. A lot of old characters finally come back - I was glad to see a lot of the first book's cast return. Therin, Khaeriel, and Terindel (Doc) show up amid a lot of family drama, which is one of the best parts of the book. It was great to see a lot more quieter moments this time, since we don't usually see the more intimate side of the characters while they are dealing with whatever nightmares haunt them. Nonetheless, those scenes, although intimate in scale, often add a lot of depth since they reveal what really drives the characters on a personal level.
What it results in is a story chock full of morally grey characters switching sides, refreshing worldbuilding, little side quests, and lots of vané politics. I loved all chapters equally. Although Xivan and Talea are a little boring to me as characters, having Senera and Suless around ensures there's never a dull moment.
I really enjoyed how Lyons handled the past lives of Janel, Kihrin, and Teraeth. Each of them has reincarnated over the centuries as notable people in history. While Teraeth remembers those lives in clear detail, the other two don't. Very aptly named, this book spent a lot of time exploring what happened in those previous lives, and I loved it. So many more things start to make sense about Elana, S'arric, and the dark connection between Kihrin and Vol Karoth.
The memories are too much, so overflowing I feel like a cup trying to hold the ocean. I can only gulp mouthfuls, knowing it would take me centuries to swallow the sea. I am drunk on memory, drowned in my identities. It hasn’t just been one or two. I’ve lived a dozen lives. But that first one lasted ten times longer than all the rest combined.
At last, The Memory of Souls gave me something I'd been waiting for. Just Kihrin, Janel, Teraeth, and Thurvishar hanging out together, fighting demons and bantering. Part of the reason why this book works so well is that the narration is nowhere near as convoluted as before, and all our favorite characters finally are TOGETHER. Give me a great cast, and I'll go anywhere with them.
The ending of this book had some events that felt a lot more permanent than the previous ones. The course of our characters is now set in stone. There was a tipping point, and now there is no turning back on the consequences.


I found it weird that almost none of the side characters from The Name of All Things made it to this book, and I’m a little annoyed at that. Why make a whole book about them?
Nonetheless, there are a lot of complex, interpersonal relationships uncovered between the characters - both old and new. I love that no matter how big the threat facing them is, everyone still has their personal problems with family members, both close and estranged. The Memory of Souls exposed the darker side of a lot of different people. How far would you go to achieve your goals and who are you willing to sacrifice for it?


As always, Kihrin brings with him a chaotic, confused energy that so helpfully lends itself to this glorious mess of a book. Despite everything he's seen and everything he's undergone - Kihrin still marches on, determined to save the people he cares for. Although marked by prophecy, he still takes the agency to make his own choices, no matter how painful a path they might lead him to. Between his feelings for Teraeth and Janel and Vol Karoth's hold on him, the poor guy goes through a lot.
“You’re terrible,” Janel murmured. “I’m honest,” I whispered into her ear. “And you are music and songs and the light of a thousand stars. You are storm clouds and velvet skies and brilliant columns of fire. How can I not be drawn to you?”


Teraeth finally gets a POV and some excellent character development. Although we only saw him as Kihrin's best friend in The Ruin of Kings, this book explores the deeper scars left on him by his past lives and the messed up dynamics between him, his mother, Khaemezra (Thaena), and his father, Terindel the Black. Thaena has her claws in him deep. This time around, we see a lot more flaws in her real nature as a manipulator who moves people around to do her dirty work, as well the effect it has on the said people - including her own son.


Janel, surprisingly, is almost relegated to a side character. There are chapters where she does nothing more than serve as a point of conflict between Kihrin and Teraeth. I found this really upsetting since The Name of All Things focused sorely on her as a character and made me love her as much as Kihrin. But this time, Lyons sees her more as a plot device to unlock Elana's memory and not as a person, as Janel Therannon, in her own right. Although she still has her conflicts with Suless and Xaltorath, I wish she felt more involved in the plot.

Relos Var and Senera

Relos Var is an accurate reflection of what happens when you believe in your cause so strongly that you cannot see anything past it. Senera, blinded by her faith in him, still can't quite realize that she is nothing more than a tool in his hands. Although I found her a little annoying last book, she seems to have matured this time, bringing a sort of quiet tiredness to the table with her valuable magic skills. I don't know if I could call them both villains, though. This book makes it clear that there is no black and white, no good and bad - everyone's morality is in those varying shades of grey.


History-wise, this novel sheds more light on the origins of the Eight, the dragons, and the Ritual of Night, as well as Vol Karoth's creation. I'd been looking forward to these bits for a while, and you finally get more answers. I love how the series always goes a step back into the history of the world with every book. It's a bit like peeling the layers of an onion - every part pulls back the curtain on yet another aspect of history.

Writing Style

This book still follows the jumpy narrative style of its predecessors but with a lot more POVs. Mercifully, the time gaps are not too huge and the chapters are chronological (for the most part). The different points of view and timelines are aligned in a way that the reveals make the most sense - the timelines in the past always coincide with a relevant chapter in the present. This would have taken a sheer amount of effort to get right, but it shines.
The story takes us from the dry, void reaches of the Korathean Blight to the exotic, lush jungle of the vané. Overall, the writing just seemed leveled up this time. I'm not sure why, but the prose and the choice of words seemed a whole lot better. The great dialogue and witty banter are always a plus.

In Conclusion

The Memory of Souls is a gift that keeps on giving. This might be my favorite book of the series and the year. This was the book that made trudging through The Name of All Things absolutely worth it. Despite some minor misgivings, this is the strongest installment yet in a series that rewards its readers with great characters, rich world-building, and twists that subvert expectations. Onward and upward to the next one!

2023.06.04 20:13 midnight_adventur3s New job is ignoring my availability

I’m working multiple jobs this summer. I just started at one that pays pretty well so far, which I do need, but has been terrible with communication. One consistent communication disconnect has been availability.
I gave them four specific days out of the week that I can work, two of which are weekend days. I made it clear (or I thought I did) during the interview that due to my other job commitments and general need to avoid burnout, I wouldn’t be able to work outside of this days.
This is the second week in a row they’ve scheduled me outside of my specified availability, and it’s also the second week in a row that this has included the one weekend day I’ve made clear to them I cannot work.
I’m going out of town this weekend for an event. Tickets have already been bought and are non-refundable, plus I made these arrangements over a month before taking this job. Now it’s conflicting with my job because they decided to schedule me outside my availability again for the same day as the event.
The head manager encourages scheduling people outside of their availabilities, especially on the weekends, so I can’t go to anyone above the scheduling manager on this. I want to basically say something along the lines of “I gave you my availability based around these other x, y, and z things in my schedule. I like this job so far but if my availability continues to be ignored, then I will need to resign.” I’m not a confrontational person and hate making people angry though, so I don’t know how to broach this issue. I haven’t been at this job long and a similar issue happened last week as well. Any advice on how to approach this?

2023.06.04 20:13 LeJ_wk Chickens hatching no eggs

Chickens hatching no eggs
Hi everyone,
I have 2 silk hen chicken. They are 6-8 months old. They started laying eggs for 2 weeks now
However since yesterday, they doesn't go outside anymore or not very often and stay all day in the coop hatching no eggs at all ! They also started to giggle very strangely and being more "agressive" with me (a little bit).
I've searched online and it says they are in a hatching period and that it is recommended to separate them without access to the nest box of the coop for at least 2 days.
What do you think ? Have you ever experienced something like this ? Thank you in advance for your support
