@kensanata Yes, both are me. (Answering from the other account now.)

@jasminee I'm sure there are other good options around, but that one works for me!

@jasminee I keep track of my papers on a Trello board where one of the columns (the longest one) is Ideas.

@Dialectrical Remember that your advisor is literally there to advise and they want you to succeed. Ask them for more help, if you need it.

@bthall @bgcarlisle I second this: there is a clear difference between this instance and other instances I use.

Oh this is good! “Arxiv Vanity renders academic papers from Arxiv as responsive web pages so you don’t have to squint at a PDF.”

arxiv-vanity.com

Example:
arxiv-vanity.com/papers/1805.1

I think the idea that a new Mastodon user is supposed to pick an instance based on affinity/interest is the number one thing that prevents people from joining. I think there needs to be a retooling of the messaging to make it about trust.

People don't join email services because of affinity. They do because they trust. They trust Google will be around for a long time. Or that hushmail won't sell their data. Or that Hotmail is easy to use. Etc etc.

Wondering how to get that one article that's behind a paywall? Here's a guide:

I tried finding a preprint archive suitable for my work (like arXiv in physics).

I tried a couple and ended up with OSF, which seems great. They have different sub-categories for different areas of research and are run a by a non-profit on open source code.

You can get a copy from Routledge and the ebook is surprisingly reasonably priced: routledge.com/Role-Playing-Gam

The preprint of my chapter is available here: urn.fi/URN:NBN:fi:jyu-20180406 but it is embargoed until 2019-10-18. If you want a copy, you can always ask me.

"Role-playing game studies: transmedia foundations" is out. Just got my author's copy. If you study -playing you might want to take a look.

@GardenOfForkingPaths Or "we don't like the current politics in philosophy so lets brigade the poll". Or something else entirely.

DiGRA 2019 will be held in Kyoto, Japan. If you study games, do take a look at the CfP:
