I still feel like there has been a toxic obsession with Raddle dying. I feel like as long as people keep mentioning "oh my god THE BETRAYAL" it's feeding into a vicious cycle that doesn't allow anyone to work through shit and move on. u/ziq apologized and stepped away. We had fun with it in f/meta_. Then some of us asked if they could come back in a stripped-down capacity. I thought this was a step in the right direction. Apparently this wasn't enough.

Now I'm reading they've done some of that stuff again. I admit I haven't been paying attention because I come here for the content and relevant discussion rather than the personalities. That said, it's not cool but IMO if this is something that can break the site then our endearment to the site is more fragile than we're willing to let on.

Honestly if I felt like I could be reliable enough in the time aspect I would offer to help pick up the slack of moderating to kick out spam and trolls, because I think everyone emotionally involved in all of this needs to take a break. This is obviously stressing people out and this being a near-daily subject of discussion with little positive movement is preventing people from getting mentally away from it.

They've asked you to stop engaging them several times, yet you persist. Really think some people harp on this shit just to keep it going instead of engaging in good faith try try to actually work through shit.

My experience with QGIS is limited but I imagine it should be possible. QGIS uses an XML-based file format so it should be relatively simple to modify it. I guess one concern is that if you're using GPS from a mobile device, you may need to coerce coordinate data from different devices into using the same reference system (for instance Google uses EPSG:3857).

Despite what it says on the label, this place was not coded by communism. It was coded by emma, an individual. In all the time she has been coding raddle, she's been at it all alone despite several skilled coders offering their services and then never following through.

Yeah, I feel really bad about that. I've been having some really crippling motivational issues from being in a depressive funk for the past six months. I get into this place in my mind where I don't have the energy to work on something I want to work on, then I don't do anything to pass the time because I feel guilty about not working on a project. I try to motivate myself but at this point the attempt to motivate myself consumes energy faster than the motivation generates.
