Aw man this sucks. Also I guess I'll turn off that Patreon right now if it's not going anywhere. I can confirm that he had a bunch of cool stuff listed including some minor bugs that sound quick to fix.Redactle has been giving me errors today. I went poking around on the Reddit and found a mystery! So apparently, the security certificate stuff has been happening because the creator seems to have disappeared - only posted one update on his Patreon, isn't responding to DMs, likely hasn't touched the website since it went live, things like that. His update before going silent was talking about stuff he wanted to do so it didn't seem likely he'd just ditch it. Looks like it should last as-is until April '23, at least?
In the meantime it looks like there's also https://redactle-unlimited.com/ which uses the same daily word list but also, as the name implies, lets you play more per day if you want. (I think one is enough for me, but I can see the appeal... Good way to practice winnowing words and stuff.)
Ok, it's broken today likely because the subject in the list of 10,000 articles doesn't exactly match the subject of the actual article. So redactle is trying to present the disambiguation page and is failing.If you want to play today's subject use https://redactle-unlimited.com for the proper subject. Press the "Daily" button to play with the disambiguation page since that button pulls what Redactle.com points to.
I haven't poked at it yet, though it's certainly not as sleek as the main site, and I don't like the idea of a timer that I can't turn off. Though I DO like the feature that you can click on a redacted word and it tells you how many letters are in it. That's a pretty huge QOL upgrade.I really don't like the interface for the unlimited version (or the timer). If the original doesn't come back then I think this will be the end of my time playing Redactle.
Nope, nothing since April 14th and would also agree to just be worried rather than angry.If you're on the Patreon you know more than I do, but has there been any activity that you've seen?
(Also, to be clear, the commenters I saw there don't think there's anything shady going on so much as they're worried about him or presume some big life event happened.)
