Greetings Fellow Nerds!

Welcome to Vingle!!!

You're new here, and it's awesome! We're reaching out to you because we're geeky too and we are SO EXCITED to be nerdy and love the things we love together with you.

Let's get started.

Hey everyone! I am @VinMcCarthy, and I'm the mod for the Video Games community here on Vingle, as well as a support member for the Japanese Anime community. XD If that doesn't tell you right off the bat, I'm a giant nerd. I love all things video gaming and most things anime. I sometimes think too deeply about games, because I studied English in college and I like the way narrative can present itself in different mediums. I also like anime because of narrative reasons; things that would be absurd in regular shows or movies are common for anime. Above are some of the particular things I like!
Also, I fucking ​love​ puzzles.
I'm @shannonl5 and I'm the Marvel moderator. My favorite characters are Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, America Chavez, Natasha Romanoff, Kamala Khan, and Bucky Barnes. I also really love BBC Sherlock, DC Comics, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Star Trek, and One Direction. And I am 100% down to get your fanfiction recs!

Tell us three things you geek out about!

hi! I'm new, and I'm not quite sure how to vingle on my android. But yessss.... I'm a nerd and proud of it. I was there when Harry Potter was born, and grow as he grew (tho I'm already a young adult when he was 11, so practicly I grew no more). I met manga "Candy Candy" when I was 13y.o. and fell in love with manga even more ever since. I love elves, witches and wizards, and of course hobbits (who dont?)
@zorskychan it's best when sci-fi and horror combine

Tubemate apk- Download latest version (updated 2020)
The Latest Version of Tubemate Apk Downloader Tubemate Apk Downloader is a popular mobile app developed by XProc Mobile. The company was one of the first companies to use android application development, as well as to build one of the first Android apps. Currently, Tubemate downloader is used by several business firms that offer a very easy and reliable platform for Android users. The company is also producing its own app which can be found at. The company also has its own website at tubemate that shows the users more information about the app and downloads. However, many of the users in forums like android forums have reported downloading the same and running it, but they find that the app fails to launch. This has led to a discussion among the users on the Tubemate Apk Downloader forum. While there are still other users who still managed to successfully download and run the app, some of them have confirmed that they had problems in booting the app. So, what is the deal? If you are looking for help with the problem of using Tubemate Apk Downloader, the best place to look is to Google for the answer. You will be amazed by the number of different forums that are available on the internet. But if you want to try and get some objective information from these forums, you need to keep in mind that all of them have their own "trends" and their "users". Since it's your first time to read and understand the forum topic, it would be better to start from the top and look for the general themes and key points. In the Tubemate Apk Downloader forum, you will see threads that were posted before the latest version of the application was released and how it did compare to the previous version. The discussion here focuses on the performance of the application and how to get more out of it. People who are used to downloading apps will also be able to provide you with more details on how they managed to download and install the latest version of the application. It is interesting to know that people are already talking about a "recommended" app because there seems to be a popular tubemate apk downloader. The Tubemate Apk Downloader developers are also seen participating in these discussions, so you can be assured that they are also thinking of making a new version of the application which can satisfy their users. Some of the threads on the Tubemate Apk Downloader forum also highlight the fact that they are working on the newest version of the application, which can be found at appstore.google.com. They also provide updates that are already available in the Google Play Store. Although the Tubemate Apk Downloader developer has posted several times on different forums, they are still not too keen on sharing any details on the upcoming release. That's why many of the users have been speculating about whether the application will soon be upon Google Play Store.
Does Nerd Culture Have a Problem?
Are nerd spaces hostile to LGBT+ and female fans? I don't want to give anecdotal evidence, because one person's experience isn't going to be the experience everyone has, but I will say that I personally have avoided a lot of 'nerd' spaces because it didn't seem like there was any institutional support for people who were on the receiving end of any kind of abusive behavior. And since so much of 'nerd' culture is based on this idea that we are outsiders, or that we're a family brought together by our niche interests, it does really disappoint me to hear that someone in the community has experienced harassment. So instead of anecdotes, here's some of what the above Youtuber is talking about: +Zoe Quinn was stalked, harassed, and threatened for months by the gamer community after breaking up with her boyfriend, who used his power in the community to create a mob to go after her. +Lauren Faits was sexually assaulted when she was underage at a convention. +StarTrek.com left racist and homophobic comments on a post about Sulu. +MariNaomi wrote about her experience on a panel where one of the other panelists repeatedly touched her, asked invasive questions, and crossed her boundaries. Guess who he apologized to? Her husband. +Maddy Meyers wrote about being dismissed by fellow fans at Anime Boston. +And finally, here's John Scalzi's scathing takedown of the harassment policy of the 2015 World Fantasy Convention, and why it actually fails to protect con-goers. This... doesn't feel isolated. It feels a lot more like the culture (and the conventions/institutions that help sustain it) has a serious problem. Do you feel like the suggestions Justin Denis made were helpful? Do you think there's more that we can do as a community to stop these things from happening?
