@DialMforMara I guess that must be it. I must have imagined that there was another term for it.

@viTekiM Yeah, I guess that must be it. I was thinking something like the n00b bridge, but that's a different sort of thing, where the game doesn't do a good job of explaining a basic game mechanic and stumps players who don't look for help outside the game proper, like in the manual.

@martinmejak I think it's kind of like noob bridge, but that doesn't sound quite right.

@viTekiM Haha, maybe it doesn't have a name or isn't a thing, so I'll accept your answer as a good coinage!

@lapis Yeah, Yuna is the protagonist there! But Tidus doesn't feel irrelevant; he's more of a Watson to Sherlock. The story works kind of better that way from Tidus's point of view so you can hear it without knowing everything about Yuna's thoughts.

@lapis I just started FFXII the other day, and I heard that the protagonist of the game is Balthier and Vaan was thrown into the story last-minute so that gamers could have a boy they could identify as.

Real or malarkey?

What's that thing called in wide-open where first you have to complete some minor task before you're allowed out in the open? Some dated examples:

required proof of spelling before you could chat with other players.

requires a series of tasks culminating with a sail before you can see the sea.

required solving a minor murder mystery before being let out of the first town and into the world.

It's not just a tutorial, there's a name for this.

Did you know that gives new naturalised citizens free access to a bunch of attractions around the country?

I need to hurry up with my application. Maybe I could do all this travelling next year!

@guerrillarain I'm stealing this meme format, now that I know it's one.

I am a mathematician and cognitive scientist by training and troublemaker by inclination. I have been following the mastodon universe from the sidelines for a while now but a recent article (and facebook's tanking stock!) made me create an account here.

As a complete n00b, I am at your mercy. Tell me what I should know and who I should follow!

@kenzo Whoa, cool! You actually use elisp code in servers?

@kenzo No, but I'm sorry to hear that.

Also, isn't MELPA just github? I forget how the whole thing works.
