After a few weeks of discussion, the Test O’Matic website and app (and the Minimum Skills app) are now licensed by the WFTDA. And more importantly; back online.
The derby community blew me away with its support when the Test O’Matic went offline. And the WFTDA have been really good in getting this all sorted in a way which will really benefit the derby community. I’m excited.
Meet transgender woman and coder Teagan Widmer, whose latest app, Refuge Restrooms, highlights the importance of providing safe public accommodations for trans people.
Yesterday I built DerbyRollCall.com, an automatic derby name registration site. It got kind of popular within a few hours. Crazyness.
Today I got a polite legal take-down request from the WFTDA’s law firm claiming copyright infringement on the Test O’Matic and the Minimum Skills app. I’ve taken both down and am in the process of gathering all the facts. I hope it’s simply crossed wires.
A request to close the following services has been received:
Service - “nukezilla.com” (dv) 4.0 Level 1
Today I shut down the Nukezilla server.
Tomorrow I start up the new Nukezilla server and install some software. An experiment is about to begin. Videogames? Yeah.
Recently on Noiys we had a wiggle about of some things. The Home (tree) tab now sorts by length as well as verbs, and the replies are much tidier now. We’ve even got hilarious “note has expired” messages as written by Noiys users, including one that is a variation on the Dead Parrot Sketch. :D
I’ve included some screen shots of some of my favourites. If you have any good ideas, tag them #OldNoiys.
Along the lines of hashtags, we’ve got #smallvictories going on, which is for celebrating stuff that most people probably wouldn’t notice but is still triumphant and proud for you. Mine was “walked 2,000 steps”.
I like reading about people’s experiences using Noiys, it makes me all proud and inspired :)
