    Loving the new armors!
  2. This is a repost from our second channel. Back when Taken King came out, we had our monetization suspended for 3 months so started posting everything on our second channel, GLPtv. Chances are you might have seen it there, but if you didn't it's because we never were able to post here on the main channel. Felt like the perfect time with "Rise of Iron" coming out tomorrow! Destiny has proven to be an enigma. On the one hand, it is widely acknowledge as a disappointment. It's storytelling was stale and boring. Content was limited, and you often find yourself grinding the same missions over and over again. On the other hand, it's still one of the most loved and popular games of the past year. It's game mechanics are amazing, and it's lore shows a lot of promise. With the Taken King, Bungie promised to make major improvements, and give the fans what they want. They promised that the story would be deeper this time. Taken King delivers for the most part. The storytelling is better here, and the characters are more alive. It helps that there are some excellent cutscenes this time around. The boss battles feel much more varied and not as repetitive. This is a very enjoyable game movie in my opinion. The only thing that holds it back is that it ultimately a side story, and a lead up to the upcoming Raid. This doesn't have the grand scope that a main game would. All in all, we think you'll enjoy the story. It's short; it only took 4 hours to complete. But just in those 4 hours, you get 10 times the story you get in 15 hours of the main game. As always, we used important gameplay, relevant dialogue and all cutscenes to make one fluid cinematic experience. We hope you enjoy!
  3. Rise of Iron is Destiny final major DLC according to Bungie. The quality is almost as good as Taken King's. The story is interesting, and the storytelling is much better than the base game because of it's cutscenes and mission structure. It's unfortunate that they keep telling side stories and don't connect them in a bigger narrative. Aside from this main quest, there are other side missions and strikes to do. The wall which stood for centuries along the southern border of Old Russia has collapsed, a battle-scorched reminder that our enemies still seek to destroy us all. Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into the Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late. As always we used relevant gameplay, important dialogue and all cutscenes to create a fluid cinematic experience.
  4. This, is our first real Shadowkeep Build. Today boys, we've got something that is almost too nasty to put together, but it has to be done. Magnetic Darkness, combines the power of one of our subclasses with the power of the Artifact mod giving us our first Shadowkeep Titan Build. Enjoy! #Shadowkeep #D2Builds
  5. Technology is changing faster each year. Digital literacy can vary between ages but there are lots of ways different generations can work together and empower each as digital citizens. No matter whether you’re a parent or caregiver, teacher or mentor, it’s hard to know the best way to teach younger generations the skills needed to be an excellent digital citizen. If you’re not confident about your own tech skills, you may wonder how you can help younger generations become savvy digital citizens. But using technology responsibly is about more than just technical skills. By collaborating across generations, you can also strengthen all your family members’ skills, and offer a shared understanding of what the internet can provide and how to use it to help your neighborhoods and wider society. Taking Gen Z Beyond Digital Savvy Open up the dialogue Even if you’re not fully confident in your own tech skills, you can help develop digital citizenship skills in others. If you feel comfortable during everyday conversation, you could describe a tech situation you have come across and ask family members if they have ever experienced something similar. You can give them a chance to share how they handled it or how it made them feel. This can help encourage them to think critically and to react with empathy. And being asked for advice can make them feel appreciated and empowered. But opening up the conversation can also be as simple as asking if they’ve seen anything online lately that they found interesting or wanted to talk about. Share access to free and affordable training Open source content management systems have made online publishing accessible to a more diverse group of people. Dozens of content platforms offer hands-on training at no or low cost. WordPress.tv, LinkedIn Learning, and others have low-cost video libraries with thousands of recorded talks and workshops and the WordPress Training team have excellent downloadable lesson plans and materials. These platforms not only feature content that helps develop tech and content creation skills but also content around ethics, diversity and community building. Find a sense of community and belonging One of the disadvantages of increased digitalization is that younger generations and us all may spend less time hanging out in-person. Digital time spent with others is no replacement for in-person interactions. The awareness and mutual understanding which comes from back and forth interaction is needed for positive interpersonal skills. This is hard to replace in digital communities and those skills can only be learned with lots of hands-on practice. Learn the many benefits of volunteering There are WordPress events across the world that provide a great place to learn new skills to share with your families and friends. Some work with schools and colleges to offer special events which are open to all ages. There are also plenty of small ways to volunteer with the WordPress project that can be done at home to practice new skills. In addition to attending events where you can learn skills and hang out with others with similar interests, the WordPress ecosystem offers countless opportunities to be actively involved. Professionals, hobbyists, and learners all make a difference by contributing to the ongoing creation of the WordPress platform. Together these people, who are known as contributors, form the WordPress open source community. WordPress is created by volunteer contributors Not only are these contributors creating an amazingly flexible platform for all to use, it is an environment where you can continue to improve your skills, both technical and interpersonal. Open-source software projects can introduce you to people you would otherwise not get the chance to meet, locally and internationally. If you have a zest for learning, and for finding others to connect with, WordPress has many ways to meet contributors in person! WordPress events are organized by volunteers WordPress community events are volunteer-run. This can be a great way to give back to the project and practice all sorts of skills. Talk to your local event about how you could get involved and if you would like to bring older teenagers and young adults with you. You will not need any pre-existing tech skills to attend these events but they are a great way to discover areas you might want to learn more about. Contributor days offer a great opportunity to get involved These events are specially designed to help you get involved in building the open-source WordPress platform. You can collaborate with other members of its community and find areas that are right for you to use and grow your skills. All of the tasks you will discover at an event can be continued at home and some are easy to get other family members involved in learning and adding in ideas. Contributors come from all sorts of backgrounds and locations, some may live near you and others thousands of miles away. Working alongside lots of different cultures and countries can open up new ideas for young people letting them learn new ways of doing things and discover different perspectives. All those different perspectives can cause misunderstandings. But being involved in a global learning community is a great way to practice communicating across cultural boundaries. Getting involved can be rewarding in many (unexpected) ways The most rewarding part of actively taking part in WordPress events is making budding friendships. New connections often turn into long-lasting friendships that are likely to continue for years to come, both online and offline. With a global community, these friendships can potentially lead to lots of international adventures too! Make our digital world safer and more inclusive Befriending people from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds can be an enriching experience in itself. It can also help you make us make more informed decisions. The more we interact with a diverse range of people, the more empathic we become. Some of the most valuable learning that can be offered to Gen Z (and probably to all of us at times) is that what we come across in fast-moving digital communities isn’t always the entire view. All things considered…. Anyone who is a digital native may not need encouragement to obtain tech skills. But they may not be aware that digital communities are still communities and we need to use the same sorts of people skills for both offline and online locations. Opening up conversations about situations they may experience online that may require them to (re)act responsibly, can encourage them to think critically and act with empathy. Compared to previous generations, digital natives spend substantially more time by themselves while using devices, so encouraging them to join real-life communities, such as WordPress, could be the first step to learning what it means to be a good digital citizen!

  9. The first release candidate for WordPress 5.3 is now available! This is an important milestone as we progress toward the WordPress 5.3 release date. “Release Candidate” means that the new version is ready for release, but with millions of users and thousands of plugins and themes, it’s possible something was missed. WordPress 5.3 is currently scheduled to be released on November 12, 2019, but we need your help to get there—if you haven’t tried 5.3 yet, now is the time! There are two ways to test the WordPress 5.3 release candidate: Try the WordPress Beta Tester plugin (choose the “bleeding edge nightlies” option) Or download the release candidate here (zip). What’s in WordPress 5.3? WordPress 5.3 expands and refines the Block Editor introduced in WordPress 5.0 with new blocks, more intuitive interactions, and improved accessibility. New features in the editor increase design freedoms, provide additional layout options and style variations to allow designers complete control over the look of a site. This release also introduces the Twenty Twenty theme giving the user more design flexibility and integration with the Block Editor. In addition, WordPress 5.3 allows developers to work with dates and timezones in a more reliable way and prepares the software to work with PHP 7.4 to be release later this year. Plugin and Theme Developers Please test your plugins and themes against WordPress 5.3 and update the Tested up to version in the readme file to 5.3. If you find compatibility problems, please be sure to post to the support forums so we can figure those out before the final release. The WordPress 5.3 Field Guide will be published within the next 24 hours with a more detailed dive into the major changes. How to Help Do you speak a language other than English? Help us translate WordPress into more than 100 languages! This release also marks the hard string freeze point of the 5.3 release schedule. If you think you’ve found a bug, you can post to the Alpha/Beta area in the support forums. We’d love to hear from you! If you’re comfortable writing a reproducible bug report, file one on WordPress Trac, where you can also find a list of known bugs. View the full article
  10. In our first article in this series, we highlighted the WordPress mission to democratize publishing. WordPress introduced a tool to independent and small publishers who did not have the resources of the larger publishing platforms. Access to a free content management system to create websites has empowered thousands of people to find their voice online. People have been able to share their enthusiasm for hobbies, causes, products and much more. Through these different voices, we can encourage understanding, spark creativity, and create environments where collaboration can happen. But as we build more digital communities, it’s easy to forget that online safety is a group effort. Digital literacy is also part of being a good digital citizen, but it’s more than just being able to do basic actions with your mobile device. Digital literacy refers to the range of skills needed to do online research, set up web accounts, and find solutions for fixing devices among other things. But to be able to enjoy more of the digital world safely and responsibly – to be a good digital citizen – we need to be able to: navigate vast amounts of information without getting overwhelmed; evaluate a variety of perspectives; connect with people with respect and empathy; create, curate and share information. We will need our offline analytical and social skills to make that happen. Here’s some best practices our community members have shared! Online or offline, let empathy be your compass The hardest part about all of this is the anonymity of online interactions. Without that face-to-face feedback of saying something mean to another person’s face, it’s easy to upset the people you’re trying to communicate with. In our daily lives in the offline world, comments may be more tempered and slow to anger in disagreements. Visual cues will help us determine how a remark is perceived. That, in turn, helps us adjust our behaviour Action, reaction, it’s how we learn best. Online, however, the experience is different. A keyboard does not protest if we type angry, hate-filled messages. A screen does not show any signs of being hurt. The lack of physical human presence combined with the anonymity of online alter-egos can be a formula for disrespectful and unfriendly behavior. It is good to remind ourselves that behind the avatars, nicknames and handles are real people. The same empathy we display in our in-person interactions should apply online as well. Critically evaluate your sources We all have times when we consume information with limited research and fact-checking. For some of us, it feels like there’s no time to research and compare sources when faced by a sea of online information. For others, there may be uncertainty about where to start and what to consider. But, without a bit of skepticism and analytical thinking, we run the risk of creating narrow or incorrect understanding of the world. With a little effort we can curb the sharing of fake news and biased information, particularly on topics that are new to us or that we’re not familiar with. Misinformation can spread like wildfire. Ask these simple questions to evaluate information online: who is the source of the information? is it plausible? is the information fact or just an opinion? Own our content In this day and age, it’s never been easier to just copy, paste and publish somebody else’s content. That doesn’t mean that we should! Publishing content that is not truly ‘yours’ in wording and tone of voice is unlikely to build a connection with the right audience. But, just as important, using someone else’s content may breach copyright and potentially intellectual property rights. For more information about intellectual property, visit the World Intellectual Property Organization website. Don’t breeze past terms and conditions Have you ever signed up for an online service (to help you distribute published content or accept payments) that was offered at no cost? In our fast-paced digital lives, we tend to want to breeze past terms and conditions or warning information and often miss important information about what will happen with our data. When we are given a contract on paper, we tend to read and re-read it, giving it a greater priority of our time. We may send it to other people for a second opinion or seek further review before signing. Remarkably, we rarely do that with online agreements. As a result, we may be putting our online privacy and security at risk. (WordPress uses a GPL license, and only collects usage data that we never share ever.). Keep your website safe and healthy If you would like to own your voice online, you also need to protect your reputation by securing your publishing platform. Websites can face security attacks. Hackers may seek to obtain access through insecure settings, outdated plugins and old software versions, and in extreme cases can try to scam your visitors. And leaking customer data, may even lead to legal consequences. On top of that, websites ‘flagged’ for security issues, can lead to high bounce rates and eventual loss of search rankings. This can all affect how search engines rate or even block your site. Good practices to keep your website safe include changing your safe password regularly, installing security software, an SSL certificate and keeping the core software, plugins and themes up to date. This will not guarantee that you will keep hackers out, so always keep several backups of your site, ideally both offline and online. That is just website security in a tiny nutshell. If you would like to learn more about keeping websites safe, you may want to check out some of these resources and many more videos at WordPress.tv. Join in and help make the web a better place! As part of Digital Citizenship Week, we would like to encourage you to learn and share skills with your colleagues, friends and family members. That way, we all become more informed of potential issues and how to reduce the risks. Together we can make it easier to navigate the web more effectively and securely!

  11. The only thing that is bothering me a bit is the fact that the Office suite only offer a web based version, which is very much watered down. I also can not work with other tools that are only for desktop, such as design tools like Sketch. Other than that it works really well, especially now that you can add a mouse to it. I love to use the Apple Pencil for notes during meetings as well. That is worth the cost just there 🙂
  12. I am working on this model and so far it is a bit generic, but look something like this: Ideas are added into a business Jira. This can be directly or through ServiceDesk. Ideas are processed and ideas worth pursuing generate one or more business needs in the same Jira. Business needs are documented in the Business Confluence for documentation. Business Need is processed and broken down into requirement areas. Once approved it generate one or more requirements in the requirement Jira. Requirements are processed and generate one or more user stories. Requirements that are approved are added into the System Confluence. User stories are created in the Development Jira as work orders. User stories are broken down into development tasks by the development team using development sub-tasks. I know that it is a bit generic as there are many areas on the business side as well as on the development side. It should still work as a model though?
