Arcmage - Introduction
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/434179 > # Arcmage - Free card game > > ## Introduction > > Hello everybody! > > We're Franzo, Yusf, Jesusalva, Bikepunk, Nico and many, many others from [arcmage.org](https://arcmage.org/), we’re a community of free culture-loving individuals, creating a high quality customizable card game (e.g. like Magic: The Gathering) that is open, innovative, free & gratis. The game is playable both with real cards as well as online in the browser. > > > ### A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY > > Arcmage has a very long history and was born in 2016 as a successor to [wtactics.org](https://wtactics.org/) (2010-2013). We had in mind to create a community driven, fun, fantasy strategy game without artificial card scarcity or pay-to-win. Only your imagination, your deck building skills and your game tactics decides the outcome. > > Lately we made great improvements to the online game experience working on the [aminduna browser client](https://aminduna.arcmage.org/#/play), and we'll continue to further improve the game and would love some feedback! > > As usual, we'll also release an entirely new set of cards next Fall! (SET 5 - Changing Winds). > > > ### A COMMUNITY DRIVEN CCG > > What we offer is pretty unique: a chance to play and/or co-develop a free and open source customizable card game (CCG) with a proven track record of getting things done. > > Join the community and suggest new cards, give input on the rules, or just play for fun and for free. Anybody could play it for free (donations appreciated) :-) You can also buy the cards from the website and play with your friends! Or print them and start playing right away. > > You might want to [read the rules](https://arcmage.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Arcmage-Rules-Compact.pdf) and try out [arcmage online](https://aminduna.arcmage.org/#/play) (no adds, no registration, no tracking) or follow our [mastodon](https://mastodon.social/@arcmage) page where we publish all the new stuff about the game. > > You can also join our [Matrix](https://matrix.to/#/!fljIQduTQTMNRfwYhT:matrix.org) room and play some matches with us! > > See you there, > the [arcmage.org](http://arcmage.org/) team > > > ### LINKS > > - Play online with a friend (or us): https://aminduna.arcmage.org/#/play > - Getting started rules (pdf): https://arcmage.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Arcmage-Rules-Compact.pdf > - Mastodon: https://mastodon.social/@arcmage > - Matrix: https://matrix.to/#/!fljIQduTQTMNRfwYhT:matrix.org

[SOLVED] Plz help: Looking for website/organization dedicated to "quality" FLOSS software (some details on the body of the post)
I remember there was a website that had the laudable goal of sharing only software that they considered good. It felt a bit snobbish, but it also seemed interesting. They seemed to have a bunch of packages, so most (if not all) of their software had no GUI. I really don't know more than that. I'm hoping someone will know what I'm talking about just with this...

Unix emulator project maintainer removes FOSS license and writes his own in response to criticism for modifying user data : r/programming

I guess that's *another* behavior to not do as a software developer.

Cursed Delta, a TUI-based DeltaChat client, released its version 0.6.0 several minutes ago. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/9201c6c3-315d-4987-bd0a-b2c28c80470b.png) PD: an important change seems that this version allows to encrypt the DB.

The WTFPL is a very permissive license for software and other scientific or artistic works that offers a great degree of freedom. In fact, it is probably the best license out there. This site provides information on how to make the most of the WTFPL. You also will find a huge collection of images, vectors and sounds with WTFPL license here https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:WTFPL&from=0

What do you think about Odysee aka LBRY?
[Apparently it's free software](https://github.com/OdyseeTeam/odysee-frontend) and they can't censor stuff on the blockchain, only on the web app. I also know PeerTube, which is a great program.

The "A" in SEPIA stands for assistant. Think of it as a digital companion that helps you whenever you need it, not unlike Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa, Microsoft's Cortana or Google Assistant, but a very special, private, customizable and open version that really belongs to you! In fact SEPIA is not only a ready-to-use, cross-platform app for iOS, Android and desktop browsers but also a complete open-source framework for DIY AI assistants. You want to build your own smart-speaker or home-assistant or you simply want to use a virtual assistant that respects your privacy? Then you found the right place to start :-)

ESP Wiki is looking for moderators
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/193809 > If you are familiar with software patents and would like to moderate an excellent database of campaign material against software patents, please respond below. This post will be pinned until ESP Wiki is sufficiently moderated. > > ESP Wiki was created in 2008 as the main resource for activists, programmers, lawyers, and policy makers with the goal of abolishing software patents. In the past, it has worked as a community forum for FSF's amicus briefs to courts and has been cited by legal journals and articles. Lately it has gotten some serious updates: a new logo, a modernized theme, better categorization, brand-new custom wiki templates, etc. > > It is not required to have a legal background, but you should be at least comfortable with reading legal information. You should also have a general understanding of basic legal procedure around patent law. But even if you don't know much, this is a great opportunity to learn some interesting details about this topic. > > Do not hesitate to contact me at any point; this post will be up for a while. > > You can read more about the End Software Patents campaign in the [community's description](https://lemmy.ml/c/endsoftwarepatents). > > Links: > * [End Software Patents](https://endsoftwarepatents.org) (main page) > * [ESP Wiki](https://wiki.endsoftwarepatents.org)

“Libre software” means software that respects users’ freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software.

In particular, four freedoms define Free Software:

The freedom to run the program, for any purpose.

Placing restrictions on the use of Free Software, such as time ("30 days trial period", "license expires January 1st, 2004") purpose ("permission granted for research and non-commercial use", "may not be used for benchmarking") or geographic area ("must not be used in country X") makes a program non-free.

The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs.

Placing legal or practical restrictions on the comprehension or modification of a program, such as mandatory purchase of special licenses, signing of a Non-Disclosure-Agreement (NDA) or - for programming languages that have multiple forms or representation - making the preferred human way of comprehending and editing a program ("source code") inaccessible also makes it proprietary (non-free). Without the freedom to modify a program, people will remain at the mercy of a single vendor.

The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor.

Software can be copied/distributed at virtually no cost. If you are not allowed to give a program to a person in need, that makes a program non-free. This can be done for a charge, if you so choose.

The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits.

Not everyone is an equally good programmer in all fields. Some people don't know how to program at all. This freedom allows those who do not have the time or skills to solve a problem to indirectly access the freedom to modify. This can be done for a charge.
