Cashing out MOONs to Kraken guide
2023.06.08 09:36 inevitable_username Cashing out MOONs to Kraken guide
| || |!I included links to sites you will need to use for convenience. Still, for your own safety, I encourage you to do your own research on them and verify if they are legit! submitted by inevitable_username to u/inevitable_username [link] [comments]
Also, I don’t know your level of crypto experience, so I’ll explain everything with a reasonable amount of detail. If you have any questions or something appears different from this instruction – don’t hesitate to text me. I’ll respond once I see it.
I’ll break down the whole process into 4 steps:
1) importing Vault into Metamask
2) preparing to swap
3) swapping and bridging
1) This post perfectly explains the first step: https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/comments/wkqgja/arbitrum_nova_and_metamask_update/
You’ve added Arbitrum Nova network to your Metamask and made it display your MOONs.
Also, add Arbitrum One* network to your Metamask, you’ll need it later at step3 of this guide. https://academy.binance.com/en/articles/how-to-add-arbitrum-to-metamask
find section “Add Arbitrum Network to MetaMask”.
In result, the dropdown should show 3 networks like this. https://preview.redd.it/6d5wf4rlvq4b1.png?width=331&format=png&auto=webp&s=82e232cfb8a262d1af2e42d6ac9ae982aa7a4e05 \
Arbitrum One (also known as just “Arbitrum”) is a L2 on top of Ethereum. However, MOONs are on Arbitrum Nova, which is a different chain built on top of Arbitrum One.*
2) Before you proceed to swap your moons, you need to make sure what to swap them to in order to deposit into Kraken. MOONs are on the Arbitrum Nova chain, which Kraken doesn’t support. The closest and cheapest available option would be depositing ETH on the Arbitrum One network. That's what I suggest we do. Web search says they enabled it, but since I don't have a Kraken account, you’ll need to check to be sure. Go to Kraken’s deposits options to see if you can deposit ETH on “Arbitrum One” network
Here's what I found it may look like: https://preview.redd.it/q5esm1k1wq4b1.png?width=747&format=png&auto=webp&s=822eee84c92584fe29232d230c0e0fdcc423bf42
Pay attention to both Coin and Network (blockchain): it should be ETH on Arbitrum One.
In the next step, you will need a bit of ETH on Arbitrum Nova chain to do anything with your MOONs.
Comment “!gas nova” under this post https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrencyMoons/comments/13ktlkl/gas_nova_comments/
the bot will tip you a fraction. That should be enough. Otherwise, let me know.
3) To swap MOONs for ETH go to https://www.sushi.com/swap
Switch your Metamask to Arbitrum Nova network
Connect wallet to the site. https://preview.redd.it/rvngiwm9wq4b1.png?width=1032&format=png&auto=webp&s=209b3c86db2ff618999d389336f771fc2b4f1993
Then, in the website, select Arbitrum Nova chain, then choose cryptocurrencies for the swap. You will be swapping MOONs for ETH. Input the maximum amount of MOON. https://preview.redd.it/z4f0zc3hwq4b1.png?width=1042&format=png&auto=webp&s=9c73dcbf074637955244ae5f743b759759d4d027
Click Approve MOON. Sushi wil ask you to set up a spending cap (the amount you allow sushi to deduct from your account, which it will need to do when you swap). Choose the maximum amount and approve in your wallet. You will need to pay a small fee for Approving MOON. The fee is in ETH on the Arbitrum Nova chain which you claimed earlier. https://preview.redd.it/bsa9zhzmwq4b1.png?width=813&format=png&auto=webp&s=fccfcf7287c05ec775199d15f044ccb90335575d
After you approve MOON, this button will change into "SWAP". To avoid conflicts with the spending cap (sometimes sushi doesn't allow you to swap your exact spending cap), reduce the amount of MOON for swap slightly (remove a fraction of the decimal, e.g. in my case I would leave 1.08 MOON for swapping). Then click SWAP and approve the transaction in your wallet.
Now you have your ETH on Arbitrum Nova and need to bridge it Arbitrum One before sending it.
I suggest orbiter.finance: https://www.orbiter.finance/?source=Ethereum&dest=Arbitrum
You will be bridging ETH from Arbitrum Nova to Arbitrum. Select the corresponding options. Check how much the transaction will cost by clicking on the question mark at the bottom. This "Save $.." is what you are saving compared to the official bridge which you won't use. The fee will be around $1 here.
Click SEND. Approve the transaction in your Metamask. https://preview.redd.it/hq5c6epxxq4b1.png?width=604&format=png&auto=webp&s=28bbe58f30a607f716f5198f0bfb9a1659229c0f
4) In your Kraken account, find the address to deposit ETH on the Arbitrum One network. Copy it.
In your Metamask, switch to Arbitrum One network. (Metamask desktop and mobile have slightly different interfaces, so the screenshots might confuse you)
Click send, paste the Kraken address in the address field.
First, I suggest sending a test transaction – a small amount of ETH about $2 worth to the see if it goes through.
So first choose a small amount (but not smaller than $1, hence I suggest $2. Some exchanges won't deposit a smaller amount) and click NEXT, then CONFIRM.
Once this amount of ETH shows in your Kraken balance, send all of the rest.

2023.06.08 09:29 milky-soda Questions for Shen Qingqiu cosplayers!!
Sorry if the format is wonky, I’m using mobile.
I’m planning on cosplaying Shen Qingqiu and I’ve looked around for some cosplay. I can’t sew, and a lot of the more “official” cosplay, aka outfits that mention his name, tend to be quite expensive.
So I was thinking of looking up the type of outfit he wears and such to maybe get a green version of something similar, but I don’t know the proper name for the outfit he wears. Therefore, trying to look it up is quite difficult.
I really want to be respectful while cosplaying him since these are cultural clothes I’ll be using for cosplay, so I don’t want to mess it up.
So, here’s my questions: 1. What is his type of outfit called?
- Where did you get your cosplay and what did you look up to find it? If you could send a link (idk if this is really possible, I’m not too familiar with Reddit) that would be amazing!!
- If you have suggestions on where to get his hair ornament as well, that would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve found a wig and I think I’ll be able to find a fan pretty well, so I think I’m alright in that regard. I hope to get some replies, any help is greatly appreciated, thank you :)

2023.06.08 09:10 ShineyPieceOfToast When do I know if it’s time to start using a mobility aid?
So I have a long history of knee pain, it started back when I was 9 years old and my knees would painfully lock in place when I bent them too far. This would happen on and off and I finally got it checked out a year later because I was dealing with pain flare ups while walking. I went to a couple of specialists and only one was sorta helpful
She explained that my knee locked up because the tendon would shift and lock my patella in place or something like that.
Anyway I get into physical therapy and I just deal with it for a while. But then when I was around 12 or 13 it began severely impacting me and I would barely be able to walk after PE.
So I went to more specialists but no one could tell me shit other than it was “just growing pains” the final doctor took an X-ray of my legs and said that one of them was slightly shorter and that my joints were over developed and that it should go away when I turn 15. He gave me a brace, apparently told my parents that I was exaggerating the pain to get out of PE and school (I was bed and crutch ridden for two weeks because of this flare up)
Anyway 8th grade rolls around and my dad tells me that I just need to exercise and lose weight so he signs me up for an athletics class which was just glorified human torture. The coach was too lazy to schedule stuff for us to do like the coach for the advanced athletics did so all of us spent our days running track with no water or bathroom breaks.
Since I didn’t have a doctors note (I had moved states and my home situation was rocky) the coach made me run. I was terrified of getting in trouble because of my parents and would sometimes run until I collapsed screaming in pain.
Fast forward to now I’m 18 and my once mitigated symptoms are starting to come back though thankfully it is less severe.
I didn’t do anything today other than sit at home and still for whatever reason my knee has started to act up again.
I was never officially diagnosed with eds but I do have autism and I do have some of the symptoms (like how my knee joints can overextend while I’m walking)
Anyways, sorry this post is so long but I am dealing with a lot of imposter syndrome and I’m unsure if it would even be worth it to get a cane or crutches. I feel like my pain isn’t severe enough and like it won’t last that long. I eventually do get a bit better. Once I get used to walking and exercising more my knee eventually adapts (and or I get used to the constant ache)
Idk I I guess I’m just scared of people saying that I don’t need a mobility aid and that I’m too young to be disabled and I feel like I should just deal with my pain like I’ve always have.

Hope you respond to all or some of the discussion questions below! Happy reading!
Chapter 64: Treasures:
POV: Kaladin, Shallan
Kaladin is still in prison and is becoming more depressed, not eating, not caring etc. He’s also having trouble drawing stormlight and Syl is acting flighty like when Kaladin first met her. Meanwhile, in Taln’s cell, Shallan wraps herself in Stormlight, turns herself black and hides in a corner. Amaram questions the madman, focusing on a cache of Shardblades Bordin mentioned. However, the madman continues to rant, and Amaram still wants to seek out these hidden Shardblades. Amaram leaves as does Shallan after copying down the madman’s words and giving the paper to Iyatil for the Ghostbloods. Later, Mraize sends a message welcoming her to the Ghostbloods.
Chapter 65: The One Who Deserves It
POV: Shallan, one and a half years ago
Shallan begins to take action to get Balat, Eylita and Malise out and away from the Davar estate and her father. She marvels at the concept of freely choosing one’s own role.
Chapter 66: Stormblessings
Kaladin spirals deeper into depression in the cell but he is suddenly released from prison. He finds that Adolin insists on sharing Kaladin’s incarceration which brings them to a mutual understanding. Kaladin is given a Blade and Plate for his role in the duel and he gifts them to Moash, to show he trusts him. As Bridge Four and other bridgemen cheer Kaladin’s release and go to celebrate, Kaladin talks with Moash and agrees that Alethkar will be better off if King Elhokar is assassinated, which Moash is happy about.
Chapter 67: Spit and Bite
Dalinar and Navani are attending another feast they’d rather avoid. Navani updates Dalinar about fabrials while Dalinar’s mind wanders on his upcoming expedition across the Shattered Plains. Navani reveals she is trying to take her mind off Jasnah, suddenly breaking down and crying. At the feast, everyone is acting weird around Dalinar, which Amaram reveals is due to someone leaking Navani’s accounts of his visions. Navani reports that the reports have been twisted to make Dalinar look foolish. Refusing to be embarrassed, Dalinar steps onto a table and reports the visions as true. He spends the rest of the evening reporting on the visions, and has a troubling conversation with Wit.
Chapter 68: Bridges
House Kholin heads onto the Shattered Plains for an expedition, which will allow Shallan to see a chasmfiend chrysalis. Kaladin is still failing to draw in Stormlight. He sees a carpenter he recognizes but can’t place. Moash informs Kaladin that the assassination is almost ready and his part will be simple and easy. Adolin distracts Kaladin with a conversation about the Assassin in White, women and an attempt to figure out Kaladin’s powers, which Kaladin admits nothing. They still have a moment of camaraderie together all the same. After conversing with Dalinar about the mobile bridges, as Dalinar crosses a bridge, Kaladin suddenly recognizes the carpenter as one of Sadeas’ and tries to warn Dalinar. Adolin reaches Dalinar as Kaladin reaches Shallan and the bridge collapses.
Chapter 69: Nothing
POV: Kaladin, Shallan - The Chasms
As Syl screams, Kaladin gets a rush of Stormlight and hits the bottom, hurting but alive. Shallan and Kaladin meet up and both theorize privately how they saved the other from a 200 ft fall. They search the bodies in the chasm and do not find Dalinar or Adolin, only dead spearmen and Parshendi. A highstorm is due the following night and they need to make it back to the warcamps. Shallan admires the variety of planet life in the chasm while Kaladin is focused on getting them out. They snark back and forth at each other louder and louder until a noise puts a stop to their arguing: an approaching chasmfiend. They run.
Chapter 70: From A Nightmare
POV: Shallan, Kaladin
Kaladin leads the mad dash through the chasms to escape the beast chasing them. Shallan suddenly leads them back to where they first fell with the dead bodies and the beast begins feeding on the bodies. Shallan takes a Memory of the beast and they continue walking, wanting to get as far from the chasmfiend as possible. Shallan manages to draw a map of the chasms which they use to navigate their way through. They get to talking and open up some, Shallan swearing she means no harm to Adolin or his family. Sunlight reveals that they are going the wrong way.

2023.06.08 09:00 EvansFamilyLego Rate Limits, "Spamming" & how the "unlimited" text messaging you pay for is actually ANYTHING BUT unlimited...
For the 4th time in as many months, I was texting my husband all day - getting no replies.
Today though, our toddler son was pretty sick, and I was exhausted, frustrated, and REALLY in need of some help - hoping desperately that he could come home early if possible. In between HOURS of changing and bathing our kid and doing many bedding changes & load after load of laundry - I barely eaked out a dozen desperate texts about my desperate situation- and yet he never replied to any of them
I thought "geeze, if he's not even answering these messages, he really has to be buried in issues at work or today he's working in someplace like a bank vault where he's not allowed to have his phone".
As the hours passed without any reply - I began to worry that HE was okay.
When he finally DID text me at 830pm just to say he was on his way home- I was pretty aggravated that it was the first id heard from him...
And then at 9pm when he finally called me while I was in the middle of wrangling the upset baby (which id JUST explained to him via text)... the first words out of his mouth were - "you could have AT LEAST answered my text".
You can only imagine MY anger since not only had I replied to him immediately HE had not answered a single one of MY messages all damn day! The nerve!
It was during this call that we realized that he wasn't actually getting ANY of my texts. So instead of being pissed at HIM.... Now I'm looking at YOU, T-Mobile.
Wanna know why?
Because thisis the FOURTH DAMN TIME T-Mobile has shut off my ability to send texts.
They give no warning - and absolutely ZERO notice - they just shut off your text messaging ability and yet on my phone- it would appear as if they are sending and being recieved perfectly fine
This is UNACCEPTABLE. Its downright DANGEROUS - People text 911 and in many other desperate and dangerous situations to get help. Many deaf people rely ENTIRELY on texting because they can't MAKE regular phone calls.
SEVERAL times during these "shut downs", I have lost opportunities to make money - I've upset and angered friends - and I've lost the trust of people I was buying or selling things from - resulting in those deals falling apart all because SUDDENLY I've dropped off the face of the earth and didn't answer thier messages for days on end... All while I
WAS answering them back and they were ignoring me.... because they WEREN'T GETTING MY TEXTS.
It isn't until I've physically stood beside the person and we compared phone screens - that I was able to PROVE I had been answering them.
This has caused COUNTLESS problems with the club I run, the classes I teach, my kids and thier friends- and my own friends and family.
It's cost me money, caused me HOURS and sometimes DAYS of anger and frustration - all because T-Mobile has decided that I SEND TOO MANY TEXTS or that I text my friends in ways they don't like.
I DEMANDED answers the first time this happened.
I was told they "don't know the number of texts you can send before they shut down your messages". I was told they couldn't find out and no one really knew. I was told that once a customer get accused of "spamming" by thier magical algorithms; they just shut you off and don't say a damn word.
I was told that including a link in my text messages (like when i sent a link to my fellow club members about a discounted Lego set!)
OR when I announced to a few dozen friends that my classes were starting back up - that it must have been "too many texts" and triggered the "rate limit" and that they couldn't take the block off for 72 hours.
On tonight's complaint call - with a woman from India who proceeded to read a script - over and over telling me HOW MUCH SHE CARES that i couldn't text my husband about my sick baby - and HOW IMPORTANT IT IS that my messages go through when i text my club members.... I told her to STOP with the script and the "empathy" and just get me an answer on EXACTLY how many texts I can send before they shut down my phone.
I sent just 42 text messages to individuals yesterday - all people that i know personally - and in doing so - I manually changed up EVERY SINGLE TEXT so that the content of the messages were personalized, contained each person's name and did NOT include the same wording over and over. It took two and a half hours for something i could have sent in two minutes.
I only sent links to an event on my Google calendar to those club members who hadn't yet RSVP'd.
The only other texts I sent all day were to my own family members .... And I sent ONE group text to the 46 people in my club - broken down into three groups, so three of the same message went out within a minute. I have no idea if ANY of those texts went through.
I was told that TMobile had ONCE AGAIN flagged me as sending spam and had shut off my ability to text for 72+ hours.
For the FOURTH DAMN TIME, I was told that it could take upwards of 24-72 hours to reinstate my text messaging..I was also, LAUGHABLY, told to contact my club members, friends- and family - and asked to have them all download a special third party app to message me. Like "whatsap" or something.
When I asked the INCREDIBLY annoying tech support woman how i was supposed to send ANY MESSAGE to all of those people- after all - isn't that EXACTLY what they had banned me from texting for doing?! Plus, without the ability to send texts- am I supposed to call my hundreds of phone contacts and explain the situation over and over and over to each one, asking them to please install a special messages app JUST TO TALK TO ME?
Finally tonight, the tech told me "unlimited messaging is limited to 300 messages per day, and any more than that will shut down your service by triggering a spam block." Even if you text the same person over and over with different messages- if you're talking to them THAT MUCH, T-Mobile calls it SPAM AND DISABLES YOUR TEXT MESSAGING SERVICE.
So you've heard it here folks - we pay for "unlimited data and text messaging" and T-Mobile's explanation of "unlimited" is;
- no more than 300 total texts.
- no photos or links can be sent to groups or multiple individuals
- you must personally and individually text everyone you know, even if you need to send the exact same message to multiple people like "Thanksgiving dinner is at 3pm at Grandma's this year"- that's enough to trigger them SHUTTING YOU DOWN.
And - even if you FOLLOW all of those things (like i did yesterday)- they might STILL flag your account, shut off your texts, and NEVER TELL YOU- So you'll never know until you find out from someone in person - that no one is actually getting any of your messages!
I had Verizon and then Sprint for over 14 years. Some days, id send out over a thousand texts, about the Christmas charity that i run - letting people know we were starting up our collection for the year. NEVER EVER- Not even once - did they EVER restrict my texts.
I've only had TMobile since they bought out Sprint (after SWEARING id never ever go back to them, when they destroyed the Sidekick phones & lost ALL of my company's contacts and data back in 2010!)- and it's been nothing but PURE HELL and CONSTANT ISSUES ever since.
I hate you, TMobile. More than I've ever hated any company in existence.

Income progression- (https://www.reddit.com/MoneyDiariesACTIVE/comments/vbbb7s/i_live_in_zimbabwe_making_3600year_and_i_just/
This year, my husband and I decided that he would take on the bulk of our expenses since I do most of the domestic work/childcare. Expenses I pay will be indicated. My salary is now for my expenses, my investments and my savings, and spoiling the kids. Husband caters for the family basics. There was a point last year when I felt my husband wasn’t as invested in the family because he barely did anything financially. By having him cater for all expenses, he is now definitely involved and invested. My husband’s income is just about the same as mine, slightly higher at some times.

|Makeup/clothes/toiletries/ supplements/hair ||$30/month ||I do not us this much monthly though |
|Water ||$15/month ||Based on last bill received in April. We do not get water consistently so bills are infrequent |
|Donations ||$20/month ||Ad hoc donations to a soup kitchen, and maternal health fun |
|Stock market investment ||$50/month ||May invest more or less, but I do try to buy shares every payday |
Household Expenses (paid by P)
|Expense ||Amount /period ||Note |
|Groceries ||$200/month ||Bulk grocery shopping of staple food items and toiletries |
|LP Gas ||$30/approx. every 2 months ||We buy when it runs out. Usually every 2 months depending on how bad the power supply is |
|Medical ||$15/month ||For OTC meds (painkiller, cough syrup, antacid stocked for emergencies) and any prescriptions |

) and (https://www.reddit.com/MoneyDiariesACTIVE/comments/yc801g/i_am_33_years_old_and_i_just_graduated_with_my/
MD Q&A Did you participate in any form of higher education? If yes, how did you pay for it?
Yes, I have a BSc in Accounting, a Masters in Accounting, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Taxation. My parents both have Masters degrees, and in my family, the bare minimum acceptable for education was getting a Bachelors. My mother paid for my undergraduate degree, and I paid cash for my postgraduate studies.
Growing up, what kind of conversations did you have about money?
My parents divorced when I was very young. My dad is the wealthier of the two, my mum has always been middle-class. My mum brought me up with very little financial help from my dad, he only covered tuition and healthcare until I turned 18. My mum catered for everything else. My mum taught me how to look for bargains, how to save and invest, and also how to sometimes enjoy your money.
If you have, when did you move out of your parents'/guardians' house?
I would say I moved out at 26 when I got my current job. I had moved out when I got my first fulltime job, but moved back home when that contract ended
At what age did you become financially responsible for yourself? Does anyone else cover any aspects of your financial life?
At 26 again. That's when I earned enough to cover all my bills without needing help. My husband P covers some aspects of my financial life, and my mum occasionally helps out with stuff for her grandchildren.
What was your first job and why did you get it?
I worked as a receptionist at my mum's law firm after finishing my A Levels (age 18) while waiting to start university. My mum gave me the job to keep me occupied and out of mischief, lol.
Do you worry about money now?
I worry about building generational wealth for my children. I want to make sure they will be set for life as adults. I do worry about money because hyperinflation is eroding my earnings and retirement dramatically. This is my second time losing my retirement. My mum and in laws are losing their retirement for the third time, so honestly our old age looks bleak if we do not invest outside of work pensions.
Do you or have you ever received passive or inherited income?
I receive negligible dividends from the shares I own, lol.
0430 – I’m woken up by loadshedding. I sigh, rollover, and sleep some more
0600 – Alarm goes off. I turn it off, enjoy cuddles from P and finally get out of bed. Our water tanks ran out 4 days ago, and council has not yet deigned to give us water, so we rely on P’s parents and friends to give us water. I get my water that was warming up on the stove, and take a quick bucket bath. I moisturize, do my brows, throw my lace wig on (I cut my hair in January, and I’m at a really awkward stage where my hair looks bad when I wear it out all day) and get dressed. It’s cold in the mornings so I put on winter stockings and a black and white chevron patterned dress, nude ballet pumps plus my warm jacket. I get E from the couch where he was watching Cocomelon and my lunch bag out of the kitchen and we head off to his school. After dropping off E, I go to the office. No electricity means no elevator, so I go up the stairs. I see my boss’s boss and greet him as we do the ZESA (local electricity company) sponsored workout. I log in to the work register, fill up my kettle, and settle down to check out my work email. Nothing urgent came through overnight, so I go into my personal email. The wig company I patronize has given me a code for my birthday, and I’m wondering if I should pull the trigger on my cart. I decide to do a report while thinking this through.
My mum is currently working out of the country, so I am managing her local finances/obligations while she’s away. I remember I have to buy the prepaid electricity token for my childhood home as well as for the house she lives in when she’s working in the country. I spend $23 on electricity for both houses (mum’s money so doesn’t count)
1030 – After doing some firefighting and office gossip I have my breakfast. Today its rice, peas and 2 fried eggs. I sprinkle some peri-peri Aromat on top since I don’t have a sauce/gravy ad I have been craving spicy food lately. I also pop my multivitamin and supplements. I check my team’s work and send back anything that needs correcting. I also generate the multiple reports my boss expects from me. I suddenly remember I need to claim my allowance for performing a role that is higher than my actual position at work. I quickly complete the form, and send it to my boss for his signature. The extra money from this is what I use to fund my stock market investments. I also remind my team to send a report to me for consolidation by noon.
12.00 – I do a major push of all my work due today so I can relax after lunch. I compile my reports and set them ready to send. I also finish my first 2 litres of water of the day, and cue up the next 2 litres
1300 – Its lunchtime, and my work bestie and I head out around town**. I find shorts that L would fit and buy 2 pairs for $10**. We head back to the office and I have caramel popcorn for lunch. Then I remember I forgot to have my afternoon meds, oops. Anyway, more work before heading to an audit meeting
1630 – The audit meeting is finally over, and I rush to shut down my computer, pack up my things and go home. I have an agreement with my manager that as long as I make up for the hour, by either coming early or skipping lunch, I can leave work at 4pm. I had a total hysterectomy end of last year so I still can’t manage driving in heavy traffic. I arrive home, make the bed (P had not made it when he went to work), and harvest chilies from our garden that have ripened. I also harvest a local herb used as a flu remedy and lemongrass, so I can brew up a tea/tisane for the flu affected people in my house. I also pack L’s lunch for tomorrow, a pie, a naartjie and juice. It’s also F’s payday, so I give her US$80 (P gave me this money).
E says he is hungry so I feed him sadza and sour milk by his request. I multitask covering L’s school textbook while supervising his homework and watching Married to Real Estate and the Great British Bake Off. I then have my dinner of sadza, greens and beef. I have a chat with the kids about their day at school. P gets home.
1900 – P and my nephew M go to fetch water from P’s friend’s house. The city council still hasn’t opened up our water supply. I do some French on Duolingo while the boys wreak havoc in their playroom. I read L and E their bedtime stories and put them to bed. I decide to do my hair in cornrows while watching Masterchef Australia. They get home and I help them carry water indoors. I remember that when power comes back I need to boil tripe on the stove, so I cut it up, put it in the pot with water, salt and garlic, and place it on the electric stove. We have serious loadshedding these days, so we have a gas stove and solar power to tide us over. I take a quick bath and change into my pyjamas. While P watches TV, I read Wild Sweet Love by Beverly Jenkins and continue to do my hair in cornrows.
2200 – My arms are tired and I’m only halfway through with the cornrows. I give up and go to bed with P. Total spent - $10
0600 – I hear crying. E is in a bad mood today. I turn off my alarm, and go to see what’s wrong. E does not want to get dressed for school. I sigh, and help F dress him while he throws a massive tantrum. E is dressed, so I go do my morning routine of shower, moisturize, contact lenses, and eyebrow makeup. Today, I wear a green dress I took from my mum, black tights, nude ballet flats and a black and white coat. E gets put into the car by F, and starts crying for porridge. We are already late, so he learns that the consequence of refusing to eat his porridge on time is to go to school without having his porridge. It’s not a big issue though, as he gets fed at school. So I lock the doors and windows and drive him to school as he throws a tantrum for the entire 10 minute drive. I shove him into the school gate and head to work.
It’s another ZESA sponsored stair workout today. I log into the register, and fill up my kettle with water. I switch on my computer, check my work email and send off client emails to my team for their response. My personal email has an annual report from one of the companies I have shares in so I check out if there’s a dividend this year. I own a negligible number of shares in the company though, but 28c per share is quite impressive. I check to see if my stock exchange wallet has been credited with the money I transferred there so I can buy more shares. It still hasn’t so I send a follow up email o the enquiries desk at the stock exchange. I do have a stockbroker, but I prefer doing my trades myself. I also do some French on Duolingo before 8am.
0830 – Our HR is in a tizzy because people are late for work. I don’t make a big deal out of it usually, because salaries are shit and people are demotivated. As long as my team shows up and does some work, I’m ok. I approve some work, and warn my team about coming in a bit too late. I also tell a teammate that she will have to cover for me on Monday as I am taking the day off. Our internet connectivity is shit so I can’t log into our system to check some stuff. My work bestie gives me avocados from her house. I almost cry because I have been craving avocados, but been too cheap to buy them.
1000 – I have a really bad sore throat. I am also hungry since I haven’t had breakfast yet. I jot down my shopping list for the weekend and head to Pick ‘n’ Pay to buy carrots, green peppers, tomatoes, lemons, cheese, polony and bread. I also buy my breakfast/lunch, which is rice, beans, ox liver and egg salad**. It all cost $10**. I leave my shopping in my car, and go to the office to wolf down my food, and take my multivitamin and painkiller. I also receive my wigs that I bought in May. Perfect timing, as I want to wear a new wig tomorrow for our girls’ day out.
I do some more work, and remind my team to send me the information I need for my daily reports.
1300 – I go out to buy a few items I didn’t find in Pick ‘n’ Pay earlier**. I go to Spar and buy peas, eggs, soft drinks for the outing tomorrow and a sausage roll. Total cost is $10**. The outing has been deemed kid friendly, so I needed drinks for the boys to have tomorrow. I get back into the office, and spend the rest of the lunch hour working.
1600 – It’s finally time to go home. I send my email to handover work issues for the person who will take over my role on Monday while I am on leave. I also send my out of office email, and head home. The kids are at their grandmother’s, so I take a leisurely bath, put on my pyjamas and eat dinner. Then I watch Masterchef Australia until P and E get home. I also get in some French Duolingo practice
2000 – P goes out with his friends, so I snuggle up on the couch with E and watch TV. I put E to bed, read him his bedtime story and kiss him good night. I finally finish season 13 of Masterchef Australia, and move on to My Kitchen Rules Australia. I love Australian reality shows, ngl.
2200 – I go to bed P gets home and tells me some bad news about a friend of ours. I feel very sad for him. He cuddles me and we sleep. Total spent - $20
0700 – I wake up feeling like a truck ran me over. I get out of bed, and get ready to hand-wash our laundry. We still have no running water so we can’t use the washing machine. I play music while doing my laundry to keep me motivated
0900 – Laundry has been hung out to dry. F has cooked potato curry, so I boil eggs and water. I have my breakfast of potato curry, egg, multivitamin and coffee. Once I’m done, I give E a bath and dress him. I also bath, moisturize, do my brows and get dressed. I’m wearing jeans and a t-shirt today as my friends and I ae supposed to take our kids out for a playdate. Then I receive a message that the outing is cancelled since one of our group is really sick. I try to think of something I can do with E, since L is out having fun with his grandmother. I do my Swahili Duolingo practice.
1100 – The welder comes to do some work on our garage door. I monitor the work for a bit, and then my nephew takes over. E starts really bugging me to go out. So I put on my headband wig and sneakers, and pack a cooler bag with snacks and drinks. We head into town and I buy myself some ciders for $9
. These are for me to drink when the mood strikes me. E wants to go to a resort by the lake so I oblige him. We pay $8 for our entrance
. He goes to play on the swings, and I take pictures of him having fun. Another family turns up, and one of his classmates is among them. He’s so happy, and goes to play with his friend. I watch him running around.
1500 – I get a call from my friend that she’s in town with my cake. This cake was meant for the cancelled outing. I pack up our stuff, hustle E into the car and drive back into town. I let out some colourful swear words when I realise I forgot to get our change of $2
. Anyway**, I meet up with my friend and get the cake, and pay her $30**. It’s so pretty. I call my MIL while still in town to find out what time she will be there so I can pick up L. She says it will be an hour, so E and I head home to drop off the cake so it doesn’t melt in my AC-less car.
1600 – We are back in town waiting for L and MIL. E wants an ice cream so I buy him one for $0.50
using money I had in my Innbucks wallet. MIL calls and asks me to head over to where she is to pick L up since she can’t leave yet. E and I get there. MIL gets me sadza and goat tripe stew, which I eat a bit of to be polite even though I am not hungry. When I’m done, I pack up the kids and drive home. I bath and change into my pyjamas.
1800 – I feed the kids, and we play until their weekend bedtime of 8pm. I read them their bedtime stories and tuck them in. I watch TV and iron my morning laundry while having a gin and juice until 9pm, and head to read in bed. P and my nephew arrive home from their amateur soccer league match and subsequent outing with the boys. I fall asleep soon after. Total spent - $49.50
0700 – I’m woken up by L demanding that I come and play with them. I am still sleepy so I fob him off.
0900 - F knocks on the door and tells us she is off to church. I finally get out of bed and get dressed. I see the boys playing relatively peacefully so I let them continue with their antics. In the kitchen, I find F had cooked breakfast, and since I’m starving, I heat up water for coffee. L surprisingly isn’t hungry so I serve up breakfast for P and me. I have my daily multivitamin. P heads out to go fetch water, while I bath, change and hang out with the kids. I also do my French Duolingo practice for the day
1200 – I have played with the dogs and kids, and I am exhausted. I collapse onto the couch and watch MKR Australia. P gets home, and naps on the couch. I give the kids haircuts and baths.
1700 – L is hungry and really wants cake, so I feed the kids a dinner of sadza and sour milk. Then some cake for dessert. I also pack L’s school lunch, which will be a polony sandwich, a cupcake and juice. The kids play until its bedtime at 7pm. The usual routine, bedtime stories and tuck in is done
2000 – P and I watch a movie while having some alcoholic drinks.
2200 – Bedtime for us Total spent - $0
0600 – It’s my birthday today. I am going all out celebrating myself since TW I tried unaliving myself twice in the past year.
L wishes me a happy birthday before he goes to school. I get birthday messages from my mum, dad, SILs, and friends. I also get a call from my brother, his wife and their son, and they sing to me. I feel very loved today. P goes to drop off E at school today so I can sleep in
0800 – I am finally up and hungry. I cook a quick breakfast of boiled eggs, and a bean curry. P takes my car to get serviced, while I bath, moisturize, contact lenses, do a full face of makeup and get dressed for the day. Today I wear a tie-dyed cutout mini-dress and sneakers, and my wavy headband wig
1300 – P is home and he drives me to a hotel outside town near a renowned tourist site in our country. We have a platter of fried fish, chicken strips, pork strips, fries, and a salad to share and multiple Savannah Drys while there. It’s really nice getting to reconnect after a very tumultuous year in our marriage. P pays.
1700 – We drive around the area, before heading home. Once we get home, P and my nephew go on a hunt for water, while I feed the kids. P and I head off to take our showers. I remember why I don’t do a full face of makeup when it take a long time to get the makeup off my face.
1900 – The family sings happy birthday, and we eat cake. Birthday gifts were gin and chocolate. I hustle the boys off to bed. No story today, as they went to bed later than usual. P watches TV while I read my novel.
2100 – Bedtime for the grownups Total spent - $0
0530 – I wake up and lie in bed for a bit. Then I read my novel some more.
0620 – I am up, and take my bath, moisturize, do my brows and get dressed. It’s cold this morning, so I wear a yellow dress with black polka dots, black tights and ankle boots. I pack up the cake I’m giving to my colleagues, as well as my water bottle. E and I head out. I drop E off at school, and go to the office. I log into the work register, turn on my computer, and check my emails. There are a few pressing issues I need to get up to speed with. One of my colleagues gives me $50 as a birthday gift. I also hand out the cake to my team.
0900 – Work is pretty quiet today, so I update my MD. I also receive news that one of my nephews is getting married. He is not that much younger than me, and could be my younger brother, but it makes me feel so old.
Note on my family: In our culture, even distant relatives are given close relationships so the large number of nephews/nieces is from those relationships. It’s a big thing done to maintain close family bonds. I have 4 actual (in a Western sense) nephews and nieces who are all under the age of 6.
1000 – I head to the supermarket and buy bread, onions, carrots, pork chops, pork trotters and my breakfast and lunch. This costs $25
. The meat is the main cost driver here. I have a sausage roll, my multivitamin, supplement and milk for breakfast. I remember that I need to check if my stock exchange wallet was credited, ugh. The website is refusing to load and I’m very frustrated. I finally log in and see the amount is still not credited. I email and send a tweet to the stock exchange. Hopefully the tweet will get them to start moving.
1200 – My boss is mad. One member of my team left his desk without informing me and there’s an urgent matter. I was about to go downstairs to give P the groceries, so I stick around for a bit before committing the same offence as my subordinate, lol. I quickly get back into my office and check on work, sign some papers and letters, and clear out my emails.
1300 – My work bestie has to run other errands at lunch so I decide to stay in the office. I check my personal email and see I have received a dividend of $0.27, lol. The share price will probably drop soon, so I will buy more shares in this counter if I can get them to increase my shareholding. My goal for this year is to breach the 10,000 share mark for one counter. I suddenly remember I have work to do, so I use my lunch hour to do the work, and then take a quick break to eat my lunch of fries and a sausage and do some Swahili Duolingo practice.
1500 – I am thinking of going home when one of my team members calls me to deal with an angry client. I go to the office, and find out it’s a surprise birthday party from my team. I am so happy, lol. We have more cake, and there’s also fruit and juice. I head home feeling so appreciated with even more cake.
1700 – P and my nephew go out to get water. I warm up my bath water, and give the kids their dinner. Today its rice and croc meat. I make L’s lunch for tomorrow, a toasted polony sandwich and juice. I also pack my lunch, rice, a fried egg and peas. And some cake for my work bestie’s kids. I take my bath; change into my pyjamas and hound E to eat his food. If we let that kid be, he would probably live on the bits of our souls he sucks out daily by being stubborn. I am feeling nauseous so I have plain rice with a bit of avocado. The kids watch cartoons, while I do some more Swahili on Duolingo.
1900 – Bedtime for the kids. Today, there’s no demand for a bedtime story, so I just tuck them in and tell them I love them. I read my novel as increasingly feel more nauseated. I end up going to hurl my guts out. P comes home and finds me lying limply on the bed. He gives me a cuddle, and goes to eat his dinner. I get up but smell fish, and run back to throw up. If I hadn’t had a hysterectomy, I would be doing a pregnancy test ASAP.
2100 – I go to bed, and lie in bed for a bit, before finally drifting off. Total spent - $25
0500 – I wake up feeling nauseated again. Ugh, this reminds me of having hyperemesis while pregnant. I put my water on to heat and get back in bed to read some more.
0600 – E comes to lie on our bed. I get out of bed, and go throw up. I get my bath water, take my bath, moisturize and put my contacts in. I look like a reanimated corpse this morning. I do my brows to try bring a bit of life to my face and get dressed. It’s very misty and cold today so I put on warm brown tights, a long black dress, my warm jacket and ballet flats. I grab my lunch and the cake, pop E into the car and head out. Visibility is extremely low, so I drive slowly. I don’t know why people like surprising other drivers by having their cars pop out of the mist without switching on their headlights. I successfully avoid the drivers who hate life and drop E off at school before heading to work.
0700 – I am in the office, and I log into the register, before turning on my computer and checking my work email. Not too much in there, so I check my personal email. My stock exchange wallet has finally been credited with the $100. I also ponder whether I should pull the trigger on a V-part wig.
I do my weekly report, and start doing some boring work in the system. I realise I didn’t save the work I did yesterday, so I have to re-do it, so I can have the list of error messages to send to ICT.
0830 – Everyone is in the office, so I do some reshuffling of duties, so that essential areas are covered while one of my colleagues is on leave. I give the cake to work bestie, who tells me how much her daughter was excited over the cake yesterday. It’s now time for me to put my head down and really focus on knocking out the system work today. I also log into an online training, and I listen while doing my work. My mum also deposits money for my birthday gift and to spoil her grandkids.
1000 – I log into my stock exchange account and buy shares for $99.14 (doesn’t count as spending, as the money was moved before the MD started). The deadline for other departments to submit their weekly reports to me for consolidation has passed so I start following up. One department is a big problem as they always send their report late. Le sigh. I draft a very passive aggressive email to them. I also decide not to buy the wig and instead ask the person making me my custom earrings that I got myself for my birthday to bill me the rest of the money so I can pay and move the remainder of the money in my account into savings. Our currency has taken an enormous hit in the last week, and is free falling dramatically. I’d rather keep USD cash than money in my account at this point. The training finally ends.
1100 – I’m getting hungry so I go warm up my lunch, sprinkle on peri peri Aromat and dig in. Yum. I also have my multivitamin and supplement. A lady who sells local snacks comes in. She persuades me to buy maputi (corn nuts mixed with roasted peanuts) for $0.50. I buy them for my afternoon snack. I end up sending the report with missing statistics, and tell the department to send directly to the compiler, as they were late. That was a very aggressive email tbh. I’m still hungry, so I munch on my maputi, leaving the peanuts because I don’t feel like eating them lately.
1200 – I see a missed call from a number I don’t know. I call and it turns out they had sent money to my mobile wallet mistakenly. I check the mobile wallet and it shows it had an extra $11. I send the money back to the person. Times are too tough to keep people’s money
1400 – I snack on a few skittles instead of having more food. I just want something to entertain my mouth, I’m not hungry at all. I review more work and drink more water. The jeweler has sent the payment request for the earrings. I pay $100
(total spent on the earrings comes to $200, which is worth it for sterling silver custom made Jewellery. I use $50 of the birthday money from my mum to cover for part of this expense)
1600 – Finally time to go home. I shut down my computer, and drive home. Once I’m home, I put on my bath water, and help L do his homework. Then I do some Swahili Duolingo practice and pack L’s lunch for tomorrow. He requested maize (corn on the cob), a boiled egg and a naartjie. His wish is my command for once. I also pack my lunch, a boiled egg, peanut butter sandwich and a bit of birthday cake. The jeweler sends pictures of the final product. They are absolutely gorgeous. Happy 34th birthday to me!!!
1800 – I serve the kids their dinner, and go to take my bath. P sends a text that he will be home late as they are working late today. I have my own dinner while persuading E to eat his food
1900 – Bedtime for the kids. I read them their bedtime stories, tuck them in and tell them I love them. Then I go to watch TV. I’m catching up on Married to Real Estate, Food Factory and Man Vs Food. You can tell that reality TV is my jam.
2100 – I decide to have some decaf black coffee and cake as my bedtime snack. P and my nephew arrive home. They are later than they thought they would be because nephew dropped his phone in the middle of the highway and they were searching for it. Because nephew’s ancestors were on the job, they found it intact. It’s a big deal because this is a major highway and huge trucks use that road constantly. I chat with P as he has his dinner and takes his bath.
2200 – Cuddles and bedtime for us
Total spent today – $100
Total spent this week – $204.50
Spending by categories Food & Drink – $84.50 Home & Health – $0 Clothing & Beauty – $110 Transportation – $0 Fun & Entertainment – $10
Reflections on this week’s spending
The spending is pretty much about normal for me tbh (excluding the cake and earrings). I had quite a bit of petrol in the tank so I didn’t need to top up my tank this week. The converted US$ prices are a bit inaccurate since our currency had a big drop this week, and most of my spending is in local currency. I could reign in my spending a bit, and focus more on investing. However, I do enjoy using my money to bring joy to my kids and myself. Particularly myself after the absolutely shitty year I had.

2023.06.08 08:41 DeafRandomKid LAMO. i’m so good on mobile i’m a pc player 💀💀💀💀💀💀💀
2023.06.08 08:40 PanicParade7 AITA for telling my long time friend that I didn’t want him to date my sister.
Long time lurker, on mobile and not a great storyteller so sorry for formatting. I (f22) met my friend T (M22), 7 years ago in my freshman year of high school. We became best friends sophomore year and did everything together.
After about 2 years of friendship we decided to date (both 17). Then about 2 months later, with him moving to another state and him getting into marijuana casually(important later), we went back to being friends. The day of the breakup we talked for hours and I obviously still cared for him.
I have one sister that is dear to me. She loves music and T plays guitar and wrote songs so she adored him. Cut to after graduation, T and I are 19, still friends and sister is 16. My sister says she might have feelings for T. T was still using marijuana and has told me that he is addicted and that I was right when I said it was a snowball effect.
I told her I didn’t want her to date him. He was not only my best friend and ex but she was a minor and he wasn’t. Plus, drug use isn’t something to take lightly and I didn’t think it was a good idea. Plus, at the time I didn’t think he was interested in her. She dropped it and I never heard much about it again.
Present time, T and I are 22. My sister is 19. T and I have lost touch some with T as I have joined the military, got married and moved a couple of times. T is back in our home town, and has been hanging out with sister to write music which I of course didn’t mind. One night my sister got drunk and kissed T. I wasn’t aware until later but I wasn’t upset, after all it was a long time ago. T and I started talking recently and he mentioned that sister wouldn’t want to hang out with him because they “had an honest conversation about feelings and that she said no”.
I stated that it could be my fault and referenced the comment I had when she was 16 saying it might be my fault she said no. He says he understood and thanked me for telling him. After a few days of silence, he apologizes and then says he was a little upset about the situation but got over it. I apologized for it again and moved on.
My sister called me a few days ago and clarified the situation saying that she did not want to be with T and thanked me for “taking the blame”. She then said that T thinks I’m still in love with him even though he was at my wedding. T messaged me a few days later and asked why I said no to sister so I explained the above reasons in the most cordial way I felt possible and asked why it mattered to him.
He went off on me saying that nobody thinks him dating my sister is weird and that I’m selfish, jealous and in denial. He kept pushing this I jealousy and said I just couldn’t admit it.
We got into a big argument but I kept stressing that I said no years ago when she was a minor and that I wasn’t jealous. I might be the asshole because I called him a dick and said he was not the friend I knew in high school. He deleted me and sister from Snapchat.
So Reddit AITA?

2023.06.08 08:40 Kavithavinod Optimizing Your Website for Search Engines: The Essential SEO Techniques for 2023
In today's competitive digital landscape, search engine optimization (SEO) plays a critical role in improving your website's visibility and driving organic traffic. As we enter 2023, it's essential to stay ahead of the curve and adapt to the evolving SEO landscape. In this blog post, we will explore the essential SEO techniques that will help you optimize your website for search engines and stay ahead of the competition in 2023. From user experience to technical optimizations, implementing these techniques will enhance your website's search engine rankings and attract valuable organic traffic.
Creating high-quality, relevant, and user-focused content remains the cornerstone of successful SEO. In 2023, search engines will continue to prioritize websites that provide value to users. Conduct thorough keyword research to identify target keywords and incorporate them naturally within your content. Focus on delivering informative, engaging, and shareable content that caters to your audience's needs and interests. Long-form content, multimedia elements (such as videos and infographics), and well-structured articles will continue to gain importance for SEO purposes.
Mobile optimization is no longer optional; it's a necessity for SEO success. With the increasing use of mobile devices, search engines prioritize mobile-friendly websites. Ensure your website is responsive and provides a seamless user experience across various screen sizes. Optimize page loading speed, streamline navigation, and implement mobile-specific optimizations such as accelerated mobile pages (AMP) to enhance mobile user experience. A mobile-first approach will not only improve your website's search engine rankings but also cater to the growing number of mobile users.
Voice Search Optimization:
Voice search is gaining popularity, thanks to the rise of virtual assistants and smart devices. Optimizing your website for voice search queries will be crucial in 2023. Focus on long-tail keywords and conversational phrases that align with natural language patterns used in voice searches. Create content that answers specific questions and provides concise, valuable information. Structured data markup and featured snippets can also enhance your chances of appearing in voice search results.
Core Web Vitals and Page Experience:
Google's Core Web Vitals and page experience factors will have a significant impact on SEO in 2023. These metrics measure user experience aspects such as page loading speed, interactivity, and visual stability. Optimize your website's performance by minimizing server response time, compressing images, leveraging browser caching, and reducing unnecessary code. Improve interactivity by implementing lazy loading for images and videos. Prioritize a smooth and stable visual experience by avoiding intrusive pop-ups or elements that cause layout shifts.
While content and user experience are vital, technical SEO remains the backbone of search engine optimization. Ensure your website is crawlable and accessible to search engine bots. Optimize your website's structure and URL hierarchy, use descriptive meta tags and headers, and create XML sitemaps to assist search engines in understanding your website's content. Implement schema markup to provide additional context and help search engines display rich snippets in search results. Regularly audit your website for broken links, duplicate content, and other technical issues that may hinder your website's performance in search rankings.
E-A-T and Reputation Management:
Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (E-A-T) will continue to be crucial factors for SEO success in 2023. Build a strong online reputation by consistently producing high-quality content, acquiring relevant backlinks from reputable sources, and engaging with your audience through social media and online communities. Actively manage and respond to customer reviews to maintain a positive brand image and demonstrate credibility to search engines.
Optimizing your website for search engines
requires a holistic approach that focuses

2023.06.08 08:34 Shazbot604 Pleasantly surprised by final Shaw Mobile bill
I just received my final Shaw Mobile bill after migrating our 4 lines to Rogers 5 weeks ago. I wasn’t expecting anything back really as the four lines were By the Gig “free” lines where I only paid for data. I was refunded the value of all the unused data I had remaining on each line, even including a US roaming package totalling about $90 in all! Nice surprise!

With all the news from NYC’s air because of the Canadian Wildfires today, it had me worried about the dust in combination with the smog. It looks like it’s all headed south so Im hoping it can clear up in a week :( not look so great rn. submitted by Ok_Performance_3697 to bonnaroo [link] [comments]
On a positive and ambitious side note: What do we think the probabilities would be for J Cole to pop out for Stick with JID 😂 I feel like it isnt out of the realm of possibility
2023.06.08 08:21 MenaceTheAK r/TheOther14 will be joining the site-wide blackout on June 12
will be joining the 48 hr Reddit blackout from June 12 to protest the proposed API changes which will end 3rd party apps.
This Subreddit will be going private June 12. Don't Let Reddit Kill 3rd Party Apps!
What's going on?
A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo
to Reddit is Fun
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface. This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.
What's the plan?
On June 12th, many subreddits
will be going dark to protest this policy. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit
, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal
, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.
What can you
- Complain. Message the mods of /reddit.com, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
- Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord- but please don't pester mods you don't know by simply spamming their modmail.
- Boycott and spread the word...to Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
- Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible.
How does this impact TheOther14?
We believe that people who wish to use this subreddit should have the right to do so in the way that's most accessible to them. Those who are short sighted or even completely blind may not be able to use the reddit mobile app to browse Reddit and require the use of third party apps. It's unfair for them to have to suffer.
We hope this gets the message across to Reddit. We love this Reddit and we love this sub.
Thank you for reading!

2023.06.08 08:01 IlikeCars99 Mobile detailing question
I have been doing a ton of research on detailing since I would like to start a mobile detailing business although I couldn’t find anything on one certain thing. I was wondering how do you go about cleaning wash mitts and brushes in between customers or do you use multiple sets of equipment. For example, if you have a customer at 11am then a second one at 2pm how would you go about cleaning your supplies in between clients?

You can also port your existing phone number over to Google Voice, though this requires a bit more work on your part.

Another method is to find someone who already has a Google Voice number and ask them to transfer it to you. This can be difficult, as many people are reluctant to give up their Google Voice number.
