This post is *pinned*.

These days I mostly hang out on Mastodon.
For RPG stuff, that would be https://dice.camp/@kensanata and https://tabletop.social/@kensanata, for everything else that would be https://octodon.social/@kensanata. If you're interested, here's how I suggest you get started: https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2017-11-16_How_to_Mastodon

My Blog
I also keep a *blog/wiki*: https://alexschroeder.ch/ – I guess I still like the idea of running my own site.

There is of course the G+ RPG Escape Rocket community where you can talk about where we’ll be able to find you when Google+ goes down. But please don’t forget to pin a message to your profile telling us where you’re going. I’m seeing this or that person in my stream and wonder, click their profile, and I can’t tell. Don’t be that person. Let us know in your profile, that is, in a message you have pinned.

Uplinked Intelligence is a wiki to collect links about old school science fiction role-playing games. It's growing. Please go through your favorite blogs and submit a few links. It'll make people happy. It'll help keep ideas alive.

I'll be sad to see this community go. It was super low frequency but a hand full of very nice pictures. https://plus.google.com/communities/112095991079631007725

How do you indicate the realm a system belongs to, in a #Traveller UWP?
Right now I use the realm's name in square brackets at the end. What do you think? The benefit is that I can color spheres of influence!

Example:
Shepru 0402 B400368-12 NT Ht Lo Va [Whih]

I’ve basically left Google+ for Mastodon a while ago. April 2017 I blogged about Mastodon. Good times! I knew basically nobody and today I noticed that I’m following 420 people and I have 1050 followers on my main account. My older RPG account on dice.camp follows 190 and is followed by 155; my newer RPG account on tabletop.social follows 254 and is followed by 81. So: moving to a different social media platform is possible! It might take a year or two, but it works. The world is full of interesting people. At some other place you might not find your old friends but you will find new friends. The world is big. There are many potential friends you haven’t met yet. Google+ going down is not the end. 😀

Blogosphere Unite! I'm happy with the blogs that joined https://campaignwiki.org/osr/ and https://campaignwiki.org/indie/
Please help spread the word such that more RPG bloggers join up, both on Google+ but also on other social networks where you have a presence. Rebuilding the blogosphere is a community effort:
→ read blogs
→ comment on these blogs
→ write your own blog posts
→ pick up on topics mentioned elsewhere
→ link to conversations happening elsewhere
→ recommend other bloggers (remember blogrolls!)
Basically we will have to do manually what Google+ does for us now:
→ linking
→ sharing
→ commenting
→ recommending
It's not hard. It's a blog. You write text. It does what it says it does. It has links. It's perfect! 🙂

I'm looking forward to my Google Takeout. Remember to drill down and pick JSON.

Blogosphere Power Engage!
If you have a RPG blog, either for the OSR or for Indie games, please submit your blog by leaving a comment. These are the two Planets I run right now:
https://campaignwiki.org/osr/
https://campaignwiki.org/indie/
A Planet is a website which collects posts from member blogs and display them on a single page. Thus, these two pages are ideal for people looking for new blogs to follow, people who aren't subscribed to 200 blogs or more in their feed reader, people who who are curious. And it's a low cost way to get your blog in front of more eyes.

If you’re looking for a repository of stuff for your online games, know that I run campaignwiki.org which provides wikis for roleplaying games. It doesn’t have many features but it has all the features I love. And I use it for my own games. And it’s free to use. And it’s also Free Software in case you want to set up your own.
