Site Update #1, 2021 January 8, 2021 1:05 PM   Subscribe

We're starting the numbering over because it's not 2020 anymore! No, really, it's not. Seriously. Anyway, happy New Year!

  • We are aware that the Google Maps in use by IRL and Jobs aren’t working properly. This is a change on Google’s end and we’re working on finding an alternate solution.
  • Our development bandwidth is likely to remain limited for a while longer, so larger projects will remain on hold, and we’re focused on taking care of urgent bugfixes. We’ll update when we can get back to our larger list of projects.
  • We had our New Year’s Gala and it was fabulous! If you missed it, you can watch the whole thing at on YouTube and catch up on the thread.
  • We had a plan for some gala mask merch, but the samples we got weren't functional/snazzy enough, but never fear, we've got alternatives! Come see our new sticker and t-shirt offerings in this thread.
  • We're anticipating that January may continue to be a complicated month in terms of U.S. politics and are bracing accordingly. Thank you to everyone who's been bringing their best selves to politics- and world-events-related threads lately and we'll do our best to make this a safe and healthy place to come when things outside get wild.
Advisory Board
  • The next BIPOC Advisory Board Meeting is in the process of being scheduled.
  • If any POC are interested in participating in the board or receiving meeting notes regularly, please email
May this year be better for all of us! The next site update will be posted on 1/22.
