    The studios didn’t lose jack shit and are gonna be fine. They’re just upset that the humans who make up their workforce will no longer accept having the studios spit in their mouths when they’re thirsty.

    Make no mistake, the true talent of Hollywood only just barely upgraded to the execs now pissing in their mouths. Sure, they’re less likely to die from thirst, but they still don’t get to drink water from the studio fountain.

    Actors are off strike? I’m glad they got what they were asking for. The studio’s greed will hurt the whole industry immensely as projects are pushed half a year.

      Mostly. Actors will now get residuals based on performance metrics of their shows, rather than based on the subscriber counts of the service itself (which is what the guild was originally fighting for). I think that’s fair and good for everyone - actors, studios/services, and customers. Actors get rewarded for successful shows, studios will not have to choose between deleting an existing show from existence or cover residuals that are more than the show is worth, and customers lose less content as a result.

      Once of the reasons so many shows have disappeared lately is because a “royalties based on service subscribers” provision existed since the last strike, meaning even shows that aren’t successful can cost a service a lot of money to keep around. So instead, they just remove them from existence.

      You’ve got to go through them? How so?

      No points to farm on Lemmy, it doesn’t even keep track of your totals. I just like spreading labor news.

        Kbin just pushed out an update that shows where else in the fediverse the linked page was posted. I don’t know if there’s anything similar on Lemmy.

          That seems like an ill advised design choice. At least roll up the list into an autocollapsed div that shows a count of the total xposts until you click on it to expand.

        If posts are made back to back then they can fill up the All communities feed, which is still how many people browse.

        Kbin.social update today, we can see crossposts now. On here they now show up as a list below the current post. They’re probably surprised to see it for the first time haha.

            I think you misread that, its ghazi, not Ghaza. Their community’s description is “A community for progressive issues, social justice and LGBT+ causes in media, gaming, entertainment and tech” which sounds like exactly the kind of place this news belongs lol

        It was worthless on Reddit too 🤷‍♂️

          Not as much.

          Reddit had hard coded limits on posting and commenting that went away after a certain threshold of karma showed you could be trusted.

          Some subs also had minimum karma levels that you needed in order to post and comment to keep griefing down.

          The karma clubs weren’t really a big deal, though.

            Yes, but those limits were very low.

            Before reddit changed the karma algorithm so that it’s easier to gain karma, I was a member of /r/centuryandahalfclub, for people with at least 150,000 combined karma. It was mostly pictures of animal penises.

              I have read that so many times but have never seen any links to examples of actual sales.

              Edit: Did a quick search and found thousands of accounts for sale but the average price was ~$0.20.

              I seriously doubt that selling accounts could generate any real revenue worth the time and effort for anyone living in a western country.
