Shyvana y su perdida de identidad como campeón

2020.09.18 21:47 LadeusGrimson Shyvana y su perdida de identidad como campeón

Shyvana y su perdida de identidad como campeón
Disclaimer desde el inicio: Estoy haciendo este post desde mi perspectiva de jugador de Shyvana (ni siquiera uno lo suficientemente bueno para ser comparable con los verdaderos mains), soy oro y no tengo ninguna experiencia en desarrollo de videojuegos. Solo vengo a dar mi opinión del tema sobre un campeón que a mi parecer, ya no es lo que era o lo que estaba apuntado a ser.
Shyvana según la imagen recortada a continuación sacada de la página de league of legends es un campeón Bruiser o Luchador en español, pero, ¿Realmente es eso Shyvana actualmente?
https://preview.redd.it/i2y6qzdi6yn51.png?width=1209&format=png&auto=webp&s=c43a74d1b98ffb02504fc084a6cc6852c5c70cba
Que comprendamos, no estoy diciendo que Shyvana AD Bruiser de toda la vida no es viable actualmente (ciertamente hay campeones que hacen mejor su trabajo debido a la falta de movilidad de Shyvana sin contar que si la estás agarrando por hacer objetivos como el dragón rápido, siempre recuerden que existe Nunu con su doble Smite gracias a la Q por poner un ejemplo, sin contar que la Q de Nunu pasa a tener daños mayores que los del Smite a mayores niveles, pero no nos desviemos de tema), lo que digo, es que con los cambios de balance que le estuvo dando Riot a Shyvana están promoviendo más y más que Shyvana sea jugada como un mago de bursteo, no un bruiser AD. Toda esta tendencia a dirigir a Shyvana al rol de mago de burst empezó con el punto en el que mejor fue Shyvana, inicios de la temporada 8. Era uno de los JG con mayor winrate en su momento hasta que llegó el parche 8.4, en el cual sin pena ni gloria desapareció para nunca volver al meta debido al intenso nerfeo en la Q de 20% de escalado AD menos en cada nivel, cambio el cuál no a variado desde entonces, siendo los valores que tenemos hoy en día. No me malentiendan, necesitaba ser retocada Shyvana en su momento, estaba dominando demasiado y como todo debe ser regulado, pero desde entonces las apariciones de Shyvana en partidas son mayormente AP y esto es debido a los parches siguientes en los que la trataron (que no fueron arreglando bugs) en los cuales reforzaron ese modo de juego, siendo respectivamente estos el parche 8.9 (Donde reforzaron la E sumandole 40% de escalado AP y reforzando la R con 30% de escalado AP, donde está bien, le quitaron el escalado AP de la W, pero creo que todos sabemos lo insignificantes que esos 10% de escalado en la W eran a comparación de la mejora que le dieron en sus otras dos habilidades) y el parche 10.18 (En el cuál hicieron el rango del área generada por su E en forma dragón de un tamaño colosal, haciendo que su E pase de una habilidad esquivable a una habilidad que si es jugado bien no hay posibilidad de escape, potenciando así la build de Shyvana AP y su rol como mago de bursteo).
Parche 8.4

Parche 8.9

Parche 10.18
Y desde ya podemos ir aclarando algo muy importante, que Shyvana se haga diente de nashor como primer item después del item de JG (Ecos rúnicos) no la hace un Bruiser. Diana puede sacar de igual manera diente de nashor como uno de sus primeros items pero creo que aún así todos la podemos considerar un mago de bursteo debido al kit de habilidades que la misma presenta (Y sí, estoy teniendo en cuenta que en la página de LoL Diana aparece como una luchadora igualmente)
https://preview.redd.it/zxq4e5wieyn51.png?width=1153&format=png&auto=webp&s=288c98d7fc5ebe02e6309659b5a99d5bd7394579
En conclusión, Shyvana debería poder buildearse AP y ser un mago de bursteo. Sí, definitivamente, con este post no quiero fomentar la idea de que cada campeón este atrapado a un único rol o tipo de build, me encanta un mayor abanico de posibilidades para los diferentes campeones, pero me parece que la build más viable de cada campeón debería ser una que tenga que ver con su rol (Sino, al menos para mí, el campeón está perdiendo su esencia, el concepto inicial que se tenía del mismo. Cosa que también ocurre lamentablemente con los reworks que se separan mucho de la idea del personaje inicial, como Aatrox, que perdió completamente su identidad como campeón, quedando como un Riven ligeramente diferente). Así que por favor, si esto llega a algún Rioter, encaminen de nuevo a Shyvana a lo que era en concepto: Un Bruiser de peleas largas con ventaja a la hora de conseguir objetivos, con un kit que mejora su capacidad de combate a meleé, no la desestima. Y no la reworkeen como respuesta a esta situación, si la reworkean haganlo como con Ezreal, que fue un update visual y algún pequeño cambio al kit que se mantenga en la idea del personaje reemplazando alguna habilidad o sección de habilidad que haya envejecido mal con el juego.
Recomendaciones de mi parte como jugador de Shyvana: - Aumentar el stun de la R para que no acabe antes de que Shyvana llegue a su destino, es increíble la cantidad de team-fights que uno puede perder como Shyvana tratando de iniciar la misma con la R pensando que va a ayudar con el control de masas que proporciona, pero muriendo rápidamente debido a que los enemigos son capaces de atacar y posiblemente burstearte antes de que tu personaje pueda seguir actuando (En resumen, la R de shyvana siendo usada como stun tiene contra-sinergia, stuneando más tiempo a la misma Shyvana por el uso de la habilidad que a los enemigos)
- Probar devolverle escalado AD a la Q (No necesariamente al que tuvo en el parche 8), por la falta de movilidad del personaje quizás este buffo le permita volver al juego como Bruiser sin desbalancear el juego como una vez lo hizo.
- Aumentar la cantidad de velocidad de movimiento de la W o quitarle el capeo que tiene de cuanto puede extenderla con básicos (Graves puede tener su buffo de armadura de manera infinita en la JG si lo hace bien, ¿Por qué no Shyvana?, obviamente con una necesaria reducción de daño en la misma o que le quiten la capacidad de activar 2 W al mismo tiempo que tiene como si fuera Garen con su E en URF si tenes el suficiente CD).
- Y como último y más importante, esto tendría que ser un cambio que hagan con alguno de los otros que mencione, QUITENLE EL RANGO EXTRA DE LA E MEJORADA. Eso fue un buffo completamente sin sentido y que lo único que hace es influenciar aún más la situación de Shyvana pasando de ser un Bruiser a un mago de bursteo (nivel de cuando le dieron 20% mas de daño isolado a la Q de Khazix y al parche lo dejaron igualmente con 10%, bajandole la mitad nomas del buffo inicial).
Si tienen cualquier aporte para hacer, por favor háganlo, esto es solo mi opinión y puedo estar equivocado, sin contar que quizás aspectos importantes del tema que quizás no haya tocado. Difúndanlo si pueden. Desde ya Gracias. Espero que sirva de algo mi aporte.

2020.08.27 13:14 mihirk98 Watermelon - a collaborative grocery/shopping list

Hi!
Watermelon is a single shared list accessible by multiple people. Create an account by verifying your mobile number, create a family and collaborate on a list together.
Watermelon on Google Play Store
I encountered this problem with my family. There was no single source where we'd store our shopping lists. We used various mediums and I encountered issues with all of them,
- Notes apps (Google Keep, OneNote etc): these could be used for making general checklists but we could not specify quantities efficiently. They are clunky, bloated and cumbersome as they contain multiple other lists and notes. Also, we never really used the sharing functionality.
- Messaging apps (WhatsApp, Messenger etc): these made sharing lists easier but lacked the basic checklist functionality, making it difficult to keep track of items when shopping. Also, making updates to the lists was extremely annoying.
- Shopping/Grocery list apps: the sharing functionality in these apps was surprisingly horrendous. Also, allowing multiple lists added unnecessary complexity and was distracting. A lot of these apps had outdated and unappealing UI.
- Pieces of paper: these were extremely annoying to keep track of and cumbersome when shopping. Updating and maintaining shopping lists on a piece of paper is near impossible and you cannot collaborate on the list over time.
Watermelon is the culmination of addressing all of these problems as an app solely dedicated to shopping/grocery lists with the best features of all mediums.
I'd love everyone's honest opinion about whether you think this app provides any value to your life and any other feedback you'd like to share with me. :)
Personal rant: I've been contemplating whether or not my app is ready to be publicised (even the early access version) because it's not where I would like it to be but I think it's time to take the plunge and see what people think.
Edit (1): Join our sub for updates- watermelon_cgl.
Edit (2): Watermelon does not and will not share any user information with anyone without the user's consent. I will also consider adding other forms of user authentication.
Edit (3): Adding email login in the next update.

2020.03.02 17:16 ignaposts [Thank You] Feliz Super Lunes!! (Chilean stuff #4)

Super Monday. The Monday of Mondays. The most expected Monday of the year! The most powerful, the one that's hits the hardest and knock chileans back into the cruel reality of the rest of the year. It's the name of the Monday of March that marks the end of vacations and the start of EVERYTHING. School, college, Work, rush hours, traffic jams, "Legislative year", Congress, everything. And now we add also the riot and protest calendar! Wooohoo... this year is gonna be busy and super fun! Also March 8th is Sunday, so nope, we gotta add Monday 9th to that! All the world is gonna be dancing Las Tesis... be careful with the squats, accidents are pretty normal.
So yay, these 2 months of vacations are over. My last long vacations of my life. Gotta adult now. I arrived to find so many happy mail! It's been really awesome! You can't imagine how thankful I am! A nice way to enjoy this new step of my life. Plus I'm finally temporarily leaving home and running away to the big island for as long as I can. I wonder how that is going to affect my English pronunciation, maaaaaate! I'll also spend a milestone bday there, can't believe it. I'm cursed to not be able to celebrate that day with friends, haha. Well, here is going to be the anniversary of the day "Chile woke" and I wasn't looking forward to having a national curfew again for that day, and I'm not into partying "de toque a toque" at this age (government's curfew translates to "toque de queda", so its a party from the start to the end of it).
I also need to create a carding space for once and for all. This hobby found me unprepared for it, haha. The lack of "assigned" places to my stuff has made me lose everything. I've been trying to konmari my room these days and I'm finaly finding stuff I've been looking for months, outgoings hidden in notebooks and stationary items, lost stickers and postcards.
Never be like me. Don't card in 5 different places and 2 different houses if you have ADHD and will probably start doing something random in the middle. If I owe you a card... it probably suffered that airheaded fate. I've been mailing them as soon as I find them, it's been embarrassing. I still can't find my carding pouch/bag thing though and that is stressing me out.
First round of so much love! Look at those stamps! And those cancellation marks!! And washi! I love it!! And look at this cutie, lol.
u/CapnCobbler (x4) Thank you so mucccchhh!! I didn’t even open it yet and just by looking at the return address I was singing Frank Sinatra…. And then I switched to Annie. Was so excited to open it! I really love the glass art, just woaah!! I love the detail! And I love stained glass (thtat’s the name?) and mosaics, I find them so fascinating. I’m pretty sure that if I ever visit the metropolitan museum and see this piece, I’ll remember this exchange and our convos. Ahh, I really wanna visit that city, and I will :D. What I love about living in my city is the amount of stuff you can do here, the many places and hidden corners, so much to explore! I sometimes like to walk absentmindedly and discover real treasures! I hope stuff get’s back to normal here soon, though I doubt it.
I also love the postcards! The mural one is so nice, wow, is that really a mural? I love it! Is it still up there? So cool! May I ask you, are these postcards from the 90’s? I remember back in the day how postcards were use ad advertisments. I love it how it prompts on the back about the “e-mail” postcards… never heard of such a thing! Wow, I can’t believe how well kept they are! When you went to the art exibits, you would take postcards as a memento or because they were pretty? I love the old picture in black and white with the liberty statue in the back… so crazy not seeing it surrounded by tons of high buildings and boats everywhere. AHHHH I wanna visit there!
Woaaahhh!! Such a pretty envelope! And cool paper! It felt funny imagining you wearing a wig listening to Mozart, haha. I actually imagined you in a long dress, in a nice old building in the city, listening to soothing music coming from an old…ermm…. Vinyl disc player, using a writing desk, and looking out the window in a fancy white building back in the days.
I love the inside pattern! Too bad the seal didn’t survive. It’s the second time this happens. I think it was because it was cancelled by the sorting machine.
Oh, and I just cooked normal food for the holidays, haha. Surprisingly, we don’t have “holiday food” down here, we just love taking advantage of the summer wonders and enjoy all the fresh fruits, sunny days, ice creams, bbqs and that stuff. Like, it’s more like summer food and whatever you feel like doing. But yeah, I imagine that there in winter you need to come up with stuff not to get bored, haha. Like valentine’s day. Here we don’t mind it very much, it hits just in the middle of the “cambio de quincena” that is, when a group of tourists end their 2 week period of vacations and return home and when others start theirs.
How did the duck turned out? Did you prepared it a special way? I’ve only cooked duck twice and oh gosh, I didn’t expect it to be that greasy, haha. So yummy. Not too easy to find here as it is in Europe though.
Thank you for the goodies and the floral notepads. Oh, and I found the aroma samples hilarious on the way they say “lift here to experience LOVe/Harmony”. My experience with love was fruity, and harmony feels fresh, haha. I don’t know if the effects wears off fast or I smelt too hard to have “an experience” hahahaha.
u/cuddlykrogan Thank you so much for the thank you card! I wasn’t expecting it at all thank you! Those origamis are so cute! I love the faces you drew. I’ve always wanted to try origami but I keep forgetting the steps… like, I wanna do them by heart. But for some reason I can’t remember! I only know how to do a silly fortune game and the boat. Not even paper planes…. My memory is so bad! I really love all the cute little owls stickers! So cute!
u/HoneyCide (x2) Oh my gosh such a cute polar bear with antlers card! I love it! So simple and cute! I love how you decorated the interior, and the cute Christmas plants drawings, so pretty! Do you use a white gel pen to do the highlights? I’ve never tried it, and now I wanna.
My holidays were cozy and amazing. I spent them with my newborn nephew, so cute! He just turned 3 months! I can’t believe it already!
Thank you so much for the Mingan Archipielago card. Wow! So interesting! I laughed with your description of the weather, haha. I also enjoy the snow, but that happens mainly in the mountains, rather than the city in winter. Here if it snows on the city, being it once or twice per year, it won’t last long at all. Usually melts within the same day, unless you live in higher zones. I love it that also after big snowfalls, it’s so sunny and warm and nice, perfect for going outside and climbing the hills! I love it and do it everytime I can with my dog. It has to be done early, the snow turns into a lumpy and annoying slushie, or “soup” as we call it here. Too bad last year barely rained. I hope it does this one, we’re on a mayor draught, and climate change is making the desert grow towards the south.
u/Fem_Philosoph Thank you so much for the Noel card! And it’s nice to know you like my name. When I’ve been to Spain or even Disneworld, I got weird looks… except for the Spaniards, they don’t like it at all because the original one is masculine, the Spanish name for Ignatius… and they just nope at the female version. I love your imaginery of the fireball. Pew pew pew from my hands! If I ever threw fireballs from my hands I think I’d be scared at first, like wtf! This is not normal, so I’d be surprised. The I’d frown thinking I’ve become crazy. Once I’ve come in terms with the reality, I’d be composed, occasionally smile knowing about my secret. I’d then escape to the beach and go completely cray cray with my powers, like hell yeah!! I’d make a campfire the most epic way possible and try fire ball fishing.
u/ursa__minor yyaaay! Your first card to Chile arrived! Such a cute llama design! I think the last time I saw them was in a trip to the south. We went to a restaurant in the middle of the road heading to Argentina and they had this bunch of llamas, guanacos and alpacas, so cute! And hairy! I got some funny pictures with them, with forced perspective. We wanted to have one lick a sugar cube or something behind and make it look as if we were French kissing or something haha. The results were… interesting. Do you like llamas?
u/wabisabi_sf thank you soo much for the Johanna Basford illustration and the so amazingly pretty washi, oh my gosh! How you have so many pretty designs? I love them, and also like carrying it around with my postcards. I love the secret Garden coloring books, but to be honest, I realy suck at painting them! I wish I could get past the anxiety of ruining the pretty designs, haha. Or maybe I should just do whatever and deal with it, haha. Have you ever painted one of those books or similar? Thank you so much! I really love it!
u/5-finger-death-punch I wanted to thank you sooo long ago for this, but it was in a thank you post that got erased before posting and I got sooo frustrated I ended up procrastinating. I’m forever thankful for the postcards we sent in our meetup. They are my favorites, and I love how one is before we got to hang out alone and one after it. I had saved that Klimt postcard since my first ever visit to Vienna, and I really, really loved it and now even more. Thank you so much for being such a caring and nice host! My sisters love telling how much we had fun at your tour to their friends, bfs and families, as a mayor highlight of that trip, specially the one that studies History, she’s soooo jealous of your mayor AND where you’re doing it, haha. Thank you, thank you so much!
u/chengdawn Thank you so so much for your shaolin temple postcard from China! The first one that ever reached me! I love it so, so much! I absolutely adore the fan shaped stamps, so pretty! I love the special postmarks, so many kinds! I wonder what they mean. Thank you so so much. Did you get mine from Chile already?
u/dirtytightsdelano Oh. My. Gosh. No way that cool castle is in your town!! That’s so awesome!! That castle is older than my country, hahaha. You can’t imagine how mindblowing it is for someone like me, it’s just so. Wow. And… wow. Just wow. I LOVE castles. I went to Carcassonne 2 years ago and I think I was ecstatic as a little kid in Disneyland, haha. They’re just soo cool and fascinating! I love them to the point that every time I go to the beach I build sandcastles. Yeah, I’m old for that, but I’m a wierdo. Lots of kids come in and want to help, but they tend to destroy everything… ugh… so I usually have 2 types, the huge ones open to everyone, and the dear ones that are mine and onlu mine, where only my sisters can help. I think the ony exception to my castle rule was when I went to Easter Island, haha. I build SAND MOAIS! It was the HIT of the beach! You wouldn’t believe it. Tourists came to take pictures, a horde of kids came to help, it was crazy. Did that 3 times, haha. I was stupid, I should’ve put a sign asking for moneeeey, it was such a hit. The last time we left the beach with 14 moais behind, all built with the help of many kids… though pretty much I built mine, they built theirs and I would help if they asked. So. Much. Fun.
u/dinosauriotriste Muchas gracias por la postal! It is sooo cute! I love it! And also the stamp! Wow, 500 years since Hernán Cortés arrived to Mexico? So cool! I NEED to show this to my sister, she’d love it! Wow, you have a Chilean friend? That’s so cool! I have Spanish friends too, and I really, really love Spain. It is one of my favorite countries. I love when I have the chance to visit! Like on January! Our plane got delayed for a whole day so I could visit Madrid the Saturday of Reyes… So fun! I hope you get the chance to visit some day. Some places here are so pretty, I really, really love the south . Or the north, with the desert and star gazing with such amazing skies.
u/Yeah-nerd Oh my gosh!!! I love this Ale Giorgini postcard!! It is just so awesome! And the pretty stamps. Oh my gosh it’s so pretty this rendition to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, I just can’t love its design more, plus it’s so colorful! Thank you so much! They’re so mesmerizing. ! I also love the München cancellation stamp. I visited there 4 years ago. The people I met there were really nice, and it was HOT on summer. I remember getting a funny sunburn haha.. Is it grey and windy all the winter? Thank you so so much!
u/sherryxo HOW on Earth you managed to send a postcard with a USA forever stamp? Wow, just wow! Is that possible? Teach your secrets to other RAoCers, haha.
I love the Bambi postcard! That movie made me cry so much when little, and avoided it because I didn’t like seeing poor cute Bambi lost his mom, though I love all the first part, haha. Plus that scene on the ice was so funny! It made me laugh so much back then. What’s the name of the rabbit in English? Here it’s Tambor. Like a drum. The stickers are so cute! Thank you so much!
u/eloriale Oh my gosh! My first Singaporean stamp! And one of the bicentennial, I just can’t LOVE it more! The design is sooo freakin cool, I love it tons. I wonder what it represents. Thank you SO much for the Christmas card. The washi you used and the puppy is sooo adorable!
So cool to know is so huge there. How was it for you? Here is pretty stressful because everything ends in December. School, work, the year and many, many social events. The ones from the job, the family, the friends, the school, graduations, exams and tests, lots of marriages, all the gifts… ahhh, so crazy. No time for anything. I went to Europe and skipped all that social hysteria and it was sooo peaceful. No presents, just sharing.
We usually have bbqs, eat lots of fruits (specially cherries! With CNY and all the exports to China, we get for really cheap all the cherries that look ugly shaped but are sooo ripe and juicy and omg) And get together with family and friends. I also love swimming in the pool and visiting the countryside for those days. The malls and stores also have American like decorations and I feel sorry for the people dressed as santas. Do you have a similar situation? Haha. Thank you so so much!
u/amrache Oh my gosh I LOVE the retail boom maxicard. It was issued on the 90’s?? WOW! Do they get special stamps and maxicards for each city? This one is so cool. It makes me think of the retail boom we had here. Funny thing how all the stores started using “American” terminology and words… yeah, that’s when English words entered like crazy. I love reading old comic strips from different places of latin America, like Quino and Mafalda in Argentina and some Chilean artists on how all these anglicanisms started being used in the stores… and then everywhere.
Funny how these postcards that are already cancelled are cancelled for a second time! Funny this “secure your dog” machine cancellation. Does it have to do with NY and their reaction to fireworks? Interesting!
Ahhh, when I visit there (in in exactly 8 months ahh!) I wanna try getting my hands on some of these maxicards, so cool, I love them so much! Thank you!
u/helloworld898 Yaay! Thank you so much! I love exchanging with you! Thank you so much for the Cornwall postcard. How do you pronounce Nadolig llawen? For a second I thought I was reading it in Mapudungun instead of Welsh, haha. Wait wait… Cornish have their own language? Or it’s just plain English? Haha, I have NO idea on how you say Merry xmas there.
Oh, and oh my gosh I adore the stamps! So pretty and colorful.There is a thing as bog snorkeling? As in… bog is a swamp? Can you see something there? What is llanwrtyd wells? (oh mygosh so many consonants) I just love that one! Thank you so, so much!
u/PostboxPigeon Thank you so much for the tiny xmas card! So cute! And little! I actually can imagine a pigeon carrying it! I never understood how real pigeons could deliver messages back then. Did they have a special format? Where there only specific people’s? Where there public pigeons? It is just mindblowing someone came up with such a cool post system. The stamps are so cute, thank you so much!
u/emgaspar woaahhh!!! You wrote it in Spanish! It was such a pleasant surprise! Do you actually speak it? I wasn’t expecting that at all! This year looks promising! I’m traveling by the last trimester and I’m SO looking forward to it! Thank you so much!
u/vogrich Oh. My. Gosh. I love the card with Isaac Asimov’s quote. You designed it? How you do them? I love the colors and how dreamy “thinking through my fingers” sound like. It is so true for me. It also help put the thoughts in order.
Thank you so much for the RAoC sticker. I adore it. I wanna put it in a special place in my carding place I -caught- need to organize -caught-. Thank you so much for this year’s wishes! So far some goals are working out pretty great! I am traveling to Australia! So excited! I still need to do an English Test to get the visa, but already booked a flight, ahhh! Hope your 2020 turns out memorable and peaceful. Thank you so much!
u/beluapulcherrimus Yaaay!! I got your postcard with the amazing stamps!! I love them! I wanna see if I can read that one with the score and play it on the piano, haha, I’ll tell you if I manage to. Is the anthem that short or its just a part? I’m pretty excited!
Funny that my name doesn’t sound pretty for people in Spain or in the US. Spaniards are pretty straightforward, so they’ve downright told me how much they dislike it, haha. I know that’s because my name is a female derivation of Ignacio, the original name. Pretty normal here, pretty odd there. I’m glad that you liked it haha.
My plans for this year are traveling to Australia and then travel around Asia. Your country is totally in my list! I’m nervous though. I’m a lone traveler, and social pressure here is like… you’re a girl you can’t travel alone! How unsafe! So it kinda build in my insecurities. I hope everything turns alright.
u/edithcider I got your part for the Exquisite Corpse card! I cant believe how long it took to arrive! And we’re so close! And it also seems that the post officer doesn’t like the president, I’ve never seen so many cancellation stamps in such a small place. Like there is one for receiving it in the frontdesk and other for sending it. Interesting. Thanks for participating!
u/anneemo yaaay!!! The Pony Express cancellation stamp! So pretty! Thank you so much for sending me such nice Roasted Chestnuts xmas card! I wonder how long has the Pony Express been alive. It turned into a normal post office later on? So interesting! I wonder which routes were used back then and how long it was it’s extension. Makes me remember all those far west movies my cousins LOVED. One of them was obsessed with horses. He would call them and they would come, it was such a cute scene. Also, thank you so much for the “ponir” greeting, it really brought me a smile.
Also, the design of the card probably wouldn’t mean anything for me if I hadn’t traveled to Europe this year. I didn’t know roasted chestnuts were a thin in cold placesg! I saw many being sold in the streets! I regret not trying them, but I also do not regret buying stamps with that money, haha.
u/stockman1984 I darn love this grumpy cat postcard SO MUCH. Where do you find such positive postcards, haha? I also LOVE, no I ADORE the stamps you put. Oh my gosh! Look at those kitties and dogs! I’m impressed they didn’t cancelled them, though the machine decided to take a bite of the oldest one, argghhh it’s the second time they’ve selectively picked the most vintage to eat them when I’ve gotten pretty usa stamps. But it’s okay, I just adore everything in this card. I want to answer your questions with other postcards… are there specific themes you like? Thank you so much!
u/MysteryMerryMakers Thank you so much for your card. I'm forever greatful. It arrived so fast! It was sooo exciting seing my friend open it, haha. Thank you thank you thank you, I'm so happy! You can't believe how much this meant to me. :)


Oh wow, that was long, I can't believe I took so many hours to write this, and I'm far from being done! I could write a novel!

Edit: glitter bomb update coming soon. I was smart enough to download all the pictures somewhere else, and I NEED to post it with pics.

I've been reviewing public documents in an attempt to figure out exactly what happened on Election Day (October 20th 2019) in Bolivia to cause the stoppage of the TREP (non-binding preliminary vote count). This unexpected stoppage, followed by a late rally that expanded the MAS's lead just enough to win outright in the first round, led to accusations of electoral fraud that fueled a protest movement which eventually overthrew the government.
I think the suspension of the TREP was a result of the tension and lack of communication between Marcel Guzmán de Rojas, the director of NEOTEC, the firm which developed and administered the computer system that processed the votes, and Ethical Hacking, the Panamanian cybersecurity firm that was hired in the last few weeks by the TSE (Supreme Electoral Court, which oversees Bolivian elections) to audit the system and then monitor it on Election Day. It's important to note that some MAS-aligned members of the TSE had hoped to develop their own system instead of continuing to rely on NEOTEC, who had administered elections in Bolivia for decades, but their effort failed and NEOTEC, who had the solid support of the MAS's opposition, was rehired about five weeks before the election. The TSE reached out to Ethical Hacking about a week later on September 19th. It wouldn't be until October 4th, just 16 days before the election, when the first meeting between NEOTEC and Ethical Hacking was held, and the compressed pre-election schedule contributed to frictions between them. Guzmán de Rojas felt burdened by the additional demands on him, and the monitoring software that's so often mentioned in news reports was installed over the protests of Guzmán de Rojas, who expressed skepticism about it, fearing it could create conflicts with his own software and there wasn't enough time to test it adequately. When it was finally installed on his servers three days before the election, he only agreed because the TSE ordered it, and even then he had a contract drawn up in which he repeated his concerns, and he and Ethical Hacking's CEO Alvaro Andrade bickered over the details.
The day before Election Day, there was an event with government officials and electoral observers in which they reinitialized the databases, performed validations of the software, and preserved a copy of the source code, then had a verbal agreement not to make any more changes or connect to the servers. However, shortly before midnight Guzmán de Rojas accessed one of the servers, which generated security alerts. Ethical Hacking called Guzmán de Rojas, who said that he was connected to the server but explained that in the earlier event, there wasn't enough time to reinitialize all the databases and he'd planned to finish the process later. Ethical Hacking asked him to disconnect from the server and not make any more changes, but hours later, early in the morning on Election Day, Guzmán de Rojas made two bugfixes to his code in response to errors caused by the arrival of the first tally sheets from overseas, which generated more security alerts and forced Ethical Hacking to redo its review from the day before. According to Ethical Hacking, these unauthorized changes "generated great suspicion and unease toward NEOTEC among the TSE board" and Guzmán de Rojas was forced to agree in writing to not make any more changes without the coordination and participation of the DNTIC (National IT Directorate) and Ethical Hacking. Also, throughout Election Day, Guzmán de Rojas and his staff regularly accessed the servers to check the logs despite the protests of the cybersecurity people, who preferred that it be done via their monitoring software. Reading the Ethical Hacking report, one gets the sense that Guzmán de Rojas saw them as a nuisance that could mostly be ignored as he went about his usual work. In fact, this was the first time that the TSE had hired a cybersecurity firm to monitor an election and Guzmán de Rojas must not have been used to such strict supervision. When he saw something that needed to be done, he sometimes did it without bothering with whatever protocols there might be.
The most serious problems emerged with the preparations for the scheduled 7:45PM press conference at which the board members of the TSE would announce the preliminary results. To facilitate this event, there was a planned stoppage of the publication of TREP results at 7:40PM, so that when the TSE board was giving the announcement, the published results wouldn't continue to change. However, also around this time, there was a large, unexpected increase in tally sheet verification traffic coming from the server known as bo1. This was the first of the so-called hidden servers, both of which were used to relay routine traffic to other servers that warehoused the electoral data, but it's important to note that, according to the OAS, this server had been active all day relaying tally sheet verification traffic from the SERECI (Civil Registry Service). Ethical Hacking didn't send a notification about this server earlier, since it wasn't in the list provided to them that morning by Guzmán de Rojas, but failed to do so.
When the number of HTTP requests coming from bo1 increased, an event which began around 7:30PM, just 10 minutes after the absolute peak of tally sheet verifications, this activity was flagged by Ethical Hacking, who saw that it was coming from an unauthorized IP address and that the requests were tally sheet verification traffic. They tried to call Guzmán de Rojas - who was working at the SERECI offices, where the tally sheets were being verified, instead of with Ethical Hacking at the offices of the TSE - but couldn't reach him. They also asked the DNTIC about the server, but they didn't recognize it. After two failed attempts to contact Guzmán de Rojas, they sounded a "maximum alert" to the TSE. Guzmán de Rojas says that at around 8:10 PM the utilities at the SERECI offices were cut, which put a stop to tally sheet verifications. Five minutes later at 8:15 PM, he received a call from the TSE in which he was ordered to stop the TREP and to come to an urgent meeting at the TSE offices in San Jorge.
It's worth stopping for a moment to consider the explanation Guzmán de Rojas later gave of the bo1 server:
(Note: Transmission operators are certified election workers present at polling places who use an Android app developed by NEOTEC to record the numbers on each vote tally sheet and take a photo of the tally sheet, sending this data to a cloud server operated by NEOTEC so that it can then be validated by the verification operators at the SERECI.)
The bo1 server, a perimeter server (Nginx gateway), was used during the preparations for the election from September 20th 2019 onward. This server was used for the registration of transmission operators and the registration of verification operators, the training of verification operators, and during the testing of the transmission of results and the verification of tally sheets prior to the election.
The agent monitor ossec wasn't installed on this server. The server bo21 should've been used for the day of the election, an instruction which wasn't carried out.
In all his reports, he's vague about the reason for the mistake, only saying he should've used another server but failed to do so. In their report, Ethical Hacking describe how they performed an extensive security review of this server shortly after the stoppage, reviewing all its logs and checking for any malicious software, and found nothing to contradict Guzmán de Rojas. It really does seem that it was just some test server of his that was active when it shouldn't have been. Also, he showed them that this server was where he stored historical data from previous elections, which would seem to support his claim about it being a test server.
What's absolutely clear is that the TSE was not in on this at all. Around 8:30PM, everyone meets at the TSE offices and, according to Ethical Hacking, an extremely tense scene ensues:
By this time, the president of the TSE and the board members, except for Dr. Costas, started to accuse Marcel Guzmán de Rojas of committing fraud. The situation became untenable. Everyone started shouting and accusing him of fraud. There was talk of calling the Attorney General, of calling the police. We had to intervene to calm the mood of the meeting.
Again, it simply does not make sense that the TSE was involved with this server. What happened clearly took them by surprise and they were extremely upset with Guzmán de Rojas. This detail is not in any report, but a friend told me that he'd spoken to an ex-minister from the MAS who suspected Guzmán de Rojas had sabotaged the election, which seems unlikely but does help illustrate just how much the MAS distrusts him.
According to Guzmán de Rojas, the TSE presented him with three reasons at the 8:30PM meeting to justify their stoppage of the TREP:
1: The use of an unmonitored server, bo1.
2: The unexpected increase in tally sheet verification traffic from the bo1 server.
3: The sudden change in trend between the MAS and CC.
You can tell right away from the first two reasons that the inciting event of this entire catastrophe was the maximum alert about bo1. That's why they stopped the TREP. Because they thought the computer system was being manipulated. In fact, Ethical Hacking says that at the 8:30PM meeting it was again ordered that the TREP be stopped "until what happened can be verified" and it's clear this is a reference to the bo1 server. However, the TSE was alerted about more than just that server. Ethical Hacking also notified the TSE about cyberattacks from Colombia. Here's how the board member Edgar Gonzalez described it:
Regarding the bo1 server, Gonzáles claimed that it was the audit firm Ethical Hacking that pointed out that error, for which the whole board was called to a meeting where the board member Antonio Costas wasn't present. That meeting was between 8:30PM and 9:00PM on Election Day.
González explained that Marcel Guzmán de Rojas didn't declare that server and, "second of all, at that time the system was receiving a ton of attacks. That's what the IT person from the audit firm explained (to us). Something like 70,000 attacks from Colombia," the TSE board member specified in statements to Urgente.bo.
"That's what they told us, that the server was being attacked from overseas. Mr. Guzmán de Rojas (told us) that there was another server, an IP address that he hadn't declared and he apologized," he noted.
In Ethical Hacking's report, there's a section about this supposed attack, which they describe as a possible denial of service attack. According to a 6:58 PM email in their report, the public TREP results website had received over a million HTTP requests in less than an hour from a single IP address. Using a simple whois, I found that the IP address belongs to Centro Nacional De Consultoria in Bogotá, Colombia. Based on their website, they're a firm that does market research and corporate consulting, but most importantly they're a parent company of ViaCiencia, one of the principal polling firms for the election and the only one certified by the government to perform a quick count on Election Day. All gheir requests were for resources of the form https://trep.oep.org.bo/resul/resulActa/xxxxx/yy, which are JSON-formatted TREP vote counts. For example, if I wanted TREP vote counts for the presidential election (1) from tally sheet #71795, I'd request:
https://trep.oep.org.bo/resul/resulActa/71795/1
(Note: The website was deactivated in January 2020.)
It's clear from this and the large number of requests being generated that they were only scraping the TREP election results website, but there's a thin line between scraping and a denial of service attack, and these folks in Bogotá crossed it. The obvious solution to a single IP address drowning you in requests is to block it, but it's not clear that this happened. Ethical Hacking had no credentials to log in to the servers - only the notifications from their monitoring software - and may have had trouble reaching the person who did have the logins: Guzmán de Rojas. According to Edgar Gonzalez, word about this supposed cyberattack reached him as part of the alert about bo1, which helped set off a panic that resulted in the suspension of the TREP.
In his October 28th report, Guzmán de Rojas admits he shouldn't have used the bo1 server for the election, but insists the traffic level was absolutely normal. Ethical Hacking disagrees, claiming it's impossible for legitimate SERECI tally sheet verification traffic to reach "30,000 HTTP requests every 30 seconds," a figure taken from this traffic graph in their report:
Warning: The times in this graph are all one hour early, which is because Ethical Hacking is based in Panama. Also, you can see that Ethical Hacking's '30,000 requests per 30s' is actually 30,000 requests *per 5 minutes* (=3,000 per 30s).
This question of what constitutes normal traffic seems like the only point where Guzmán de Rojas and Ethical Hacking are in serious conflict about the facts. I'm inclined to trust Guzmán de Rojas here since it's his system and Ethical Hacking only had two weeks of experience with it. (Click here for a discussion of the bo1 traffic spike.)
At the end of Guzmán de Rojas's claim that the traffic was normal, he makes this comment:
If the use of the bo1 server and an increase in traffic were considered anomalies, this should've been warned about and cleared up before 7:30PM.
And he's right! Ethical Hacking should've flagged traffic from bo1 much earlier. You can see clearly in their graph that bo1, the green line, had been active long before the spike that generated the alert. In fact, in the OAS report, they say it had been active all day long. It's possible Ethical Hacking didn't pay attention to it because, like all of the approved servers, it had an IP address in a range reserved for private networks (format: 10.x.x.x), which really ought to have given them more pause about sending a maximum alert.
The Ethical Hacking traffic graph can be combined with other evidence to reconstruct some of the timeline of the TREP stoppage. It seems the number of HTTP requests coming from bo1 began to spike at around 7:30PM Bolivia time. In their report, Ethical Hacking claims to have detected the traffic increase right at 7:30PM, but they may not have actually noticed until some minutes later, since the traffic level then was about equal with the previous peak. They called Guzmán de Rojas twice without success and consulted with the DNTIC, after which they sent their maximum alert to the TSE. I believe the TSE only learned about this alert between 7:53-7:58PM. I say this because from 7:50-7:53PM there was the TSE's preliminary results press conference, which was attended by all the board members, and none appear to be alarmed or hurried. The TSE president, María Eugenia Choque, even ends the event noting that there were still many rural votes to be counted, which would seem to imply she believed the TREP would continue. The latest the TSE would've learned about this alert was 7:58PM, which corresponds to the first attempt to cut the SERECI's internet. This can be seen in unreleased electoral data which shows the SERECI's IP address changed at 7:58:12PM when they automatically switched over to a backup line. Then, at 8:06:44PM, their first IP address was restored and seconds later at 8:07PM, all tally sheet verifications ceased, which means the SERECI's utilities must've been cut. Then, according to Guzmán de Rojas, the TSE board (minus Costas) called him around 8:15PM and ordered him to halt the TREP.
If you'll recall, there was a third reason given to Guzmán de Rojas for the TREP suspension: a sudden change in trend between the MAS and CC. And for all the media coverage this reason has received, you would think that it was the only one. It's taken for granted that the TSE invented this "sudden change" to justify intervening to prevent an unfavorable result, but there's good reason to believe that in fact there was a sudden change in trend. In his November 4th report, Guzmán de Rojas explains that at around 7:16PM he reconfigured the public TREP results website to use a better data source which had at least twice as many tally sheets verified because data replication between the servers was slow and he wanted to ensure the public results were as up-to-date as possible for the press conference. This is exactly the sort of event that might cause a sudden change in the reported results. And sure enough, in this interview (and this one) Álvaro Andrade of Ethical Hacking says that around this same time, there was a sharp reduction in the margin between the MAS and CC, which abruptly declined from 11-12% to 7%, and that this prompted a request from the TSE to verify the data on the website. Andrade explained it away as being due to the mass verification of tally sheets from Santa Cruz, whose voters tend to oppose the MAS, but the problem with his account is that, according to the public data, at no point did the MAS have an 11-12% lead in the presidential election. The 11-12% margin might reflect the count from the incomplete data source, which had at most half as many tally sheets verified, and when the public website started using the more complete data source, the MAS's reported margin suddenly fell below the 10% threshold. In his October 28th report, Guzmán de Rojas argued there was no change in trend, which he interpreted as a total inversion of the positions of the two parties, but it was likely only a question of whether the MAS would win in the first round, not about who had the outright lead. At the 8:30PM meeting, he tried to clear up the TSE's concerns, but they weren't convinced and decided not to resume the TREP.
Also, in the OAS report, a shadowy figure appears at this time. An asesor (advisor) who's not on any employee lists but is vouched for by the TSE. They withheld his name in the OAS report, but Alvaro Andrade later named him in an interview. This asesor is one Sergio Martínez. According to his LinkedIn profile, he had recently been doing IT work at the National Institute of Statistics and had worked several other, similar government jobs prior. He began work as an IT contractor for the SERECI on October 8th, only four days after Ethical Hacking's own start. He appears in passing multiple times in the Ethical Hacking report, always in routine professional contexts: in two emails about security patches and audits on the 15th and in another from the 18th after he provided Andrade with a protocol for the reinitialization of databases. He was also present for the all-hands meetings after the TREP interruption on Election Night, where he appears to have proposed the configuration of a new perimeter server - bo20, the second of the hidden servers - that would be used for the verification of the remaining tally sheets, likely to resolve the conflict between Marcel Guzmán de Rojas and the TSE board, some of whom distrusted Marcel and had just accused him of fraud. In a report provided to the OAS, the DNTIC said that this bo20 server was configured by all of the important technical personnel: the DNTIC, NEOTEC, and Ethical Hacking (SIM SRL).
In his November 4th report to the TSE, Guzmán de Rojas offers this description of bo20:
On election night at the 20:00 (sic) meeting, the TSE decided to replace the bo1 server with a new server, bo20. This server was created and configured in the TSE's Amazon AWS server space. Just like the server bo1, the new server is a simple gateway, a reverse proxy using Nginx.
It's clear from statements he's made that he thought the TSE's complaints about bo1 and the excessive traffic were baseless, but there was no way of placating them except with another gateway server that was, as he explained, just like the one it was replacing.
The next day, according to NEOTEC's October 28th report, there was a meeting at 12:30PM between Guzmán de Rojas and the TSE where they all hashed out how to proceed. It was there that it was decided that the internet would be restored to the SERECI offices, the remaining TREP tally sheets would be processed, and then the publication of results would resume once this was completed. Also, a new IP address, this one belonging to the new bo20 server, was given to the SERECI by the DNTIC director for the verification of the remaining actas. Around 2:30PM, the SERECI had its internet restored and their TREP operators began to process tally sheets again. It would be another four hours, at 6:30PM, before the order was given to resume the publication of results, which resulted in a sharp discontinuity when the public website updated for the first time in nearly a day. In that time, 3831 tally sheets were verified and the MAS's margin over CC had grown from 7.87% to 10.15%, pushing it just over the critical 10% margin needed to win outright in the first round.
The rest of the story is less interesting, although the errors and bad practices are shocking for a production system in a national election. It all occurs in the Cómputo (official vote count) and it's scene after scene in which, say, there's a correction requested by an electoral official or a database error, so the DNTIC grants Marcel VPN access and he fixes the mistake in the only way he can: with a SQL command, as I'm sure he's done a million times in a million other elections. In most cases he appears to have permission from government officials, but he's not observed performing the changes. He simply does it, then documents in an email the SQL command he used, and then Ethical Hacking frets about how he's not following procedure. There's also a WhatsApp chat log at the end of the Ethical Hacking report that shows there was an informal system between Windsor Saire, the director of the DNTIC, and Marcel Guzmán de Rojas which the two tried to document via email but which didn't appear to include the in-person supervision of Marcel.
(Note: There have been many complaints about the use of direct SQL commands, which is terrible practice and even worse within the context of an election, but according to the contract Guzmán de Rojas had drawn up, the database (MySQL) history files on the TREP application servers were being monitored in real time. After that second bug fix in the morning on Election Day, he said, 'With the bash (Linux command line) and MySQL history files, you can see what I did.' I'd expect Ethical Hacking to have monitored the same logs on the Cómputo servers, although it's unclear to me if this is the case. At any rate, if Guzmán de Rojas's emails are accurate, these SQL commands were all corrections of erroneous status values, not edits to vote totals.)
I'm confident there wasn't any data manipulation during the outage, and I think the belief that there was is due to the enormity of the technical fuck-ups and the bitterness of the political divisions in the country. Why? Because the final margin is predictable based on pre-interruption trends. Also, the OAS hasn't pointed to discrepancies between the digital and physical records, which for me would constitute strong evidence of data manipulation.

UPDATE #1: I wrote to Guzmán de Rojas to explain why I disagreed with the OAS report and to urge him to rebut it. To my great surprise, he responded, telling me I've 'got it right'.
UPDATE #2: Ex-TSE vice president Antonio Costas, who voted against certifying Evo Morales's candidacy and was the only board member with an IT background, points to human error as well. Some choice quotes from this October 23rd article:
"I get word that my colleagues (board members) were meeting with [Ethical Hacking] and NEOTEC. What happened is that there's a security protocol between the two firms and a part of the data was migrated in order to publish the data to another server, a movement which needed to be coordinated. [Ethical Hacking] detects this situation, and I think in this there was an excessively zealous protocol. Instead of making a big fuss, they should've sat down and looked at what happened. (...) They should've warned us," he said in an interview with Unitel.
(...)
"There's no fraud here. It was incompetence," he said.
(Other interviews: CNN, La Revista al Día, PAT, NTN, RED+. There's this, too, from 11 days before the election. Costas says that Ethical Hacking was "very demanding", but that they were helping to formalize processes that were somewhat improvisational and this would ultimately improve the TSE as an institution.)
UPDATE #3: The EU also published a report with a few interesting details. They explain that the TSE's original plan with the TREP was to make a single announcement at 8:00PM to avoid confusion with the official count, which is what they had done in prior elections, but 10 days before the election, under pressure from the EU and others, they agreed to two more announcements, one at midnight and another later on the 21st. It seems that, after the decision to suspend the TREP, the TSE tried to fall back to their original plan and in effect wash their hands of the TREP, but ultimately gave in to calls to resume it. Also, in the lead-up to the election, there were many dismissals and resignations of key TSE staff, which reduced its technical expertise for the election. It's possible this made the TSE more dependent on its contractors to perform the technical roles.
UPDATE #4: I obtained new electoral data and used it to make a timeline (in Spanish) of the progression of the TREP during the period when the publication of results was halted. The exact time of the interruption was 8:07 PM, at which point the MAS had a 9.02% lead with 95.06% of tally sheets transmitted and 89.98% verified in the presidential race.
UPDATE #5: I missed this uncharacteristically informative November 18th piece from Página Siete where Guzmán de Rojas and Andrade snipe at each other. Guzmán de Rojas denies BO1 was an unknown server, insisting that it was used in testing two days before the election and Andrade should've complained then. He also claims Andrade's erroneous "30,000 HTTP requests per 30 seconds" is a deliberate lie. For his part, Andrade says all the errors were the fault of Guzmán de Rojas, who violated the security protocol over and over. One odd detail is Andrade claims to have received a notification about BO1 at 6:49 (PM). This seems about an hour too soon, so I assume he's citing it for the wrong time zone and actually means 7:49 PM, but I'm not sure.
UPDATE #6: A point which needs to be underlined is that NEOTEC (read: Guzmán de Rojas) was the only one with access to the TREP servers. Not even the government had logins. This point has been made by everyone. The TSE board said it. Alvaro Andrade said it. In fact, one of the first things Guzmán de Rojas ever said to Andrade was that he wouldn't give him logins. It was the first item in that contract of his, too. DNTIC director Windsor Saire said it. Even Sergio Martinez said it. Any theory of data manipulation that doesn't centrally involve Guzmán de Rojas - who had a long track record, the support of the opposition, and was viewed skeptically by the MAS - is absurd.

2014.02.15 19:32 tabledresser [Table] IamA Venezuelan living under Maduro's government and extreme media blockade AMA!

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)
Date: 2014-02-15
Link to submission (Has self-text)
Questions Answers
Would you say that most Venezuelans still support the government? No. There's a lot of people supporting the government right now but not the vast majority of the population. (According to some national and international studies).
How much has crime affected you? I have been robbed 8 times in my life, 4 of those times in the last 16 months.
What common household items are you currently going without because of cost and scarcity? Toilet Paper, chicken, milk, cornmeal (IMPORTANT for the making of arepas), butter, rice, sugar, and some and some more.
Has your savings been wiped out by inflation? Inflation is eating our souls, 56% in the last year and 3.3% in the last month. And i'm not telling you about the exchange control of our currency.
Do you think that Maduro will stay in power? No, i think Maduro has its days counted.
Did you support Chavez and vote for Maduro? No, i didn't support any of those.
Is there any news or TV outlet allowed that opposes the government's policies or blames it for the current problems? No right now we are living through a media blockade where national and international tv channels are censored and even wiped out of the DirecTV broadcast.
Do you think of leaving Venezuela? Yes, but as time passes it is very hard to get away, it's so sad these things we are living. Thanks for Asking!
I've lived in New York City almost all my life and I've never been robbed. I hope things get better there. Thanks so much for caring about us and for asking, me and my people really appreciate this kind of acts!
Hello there, EXCELLENT QUESTIONS HERE.
If there were to be elections tomorrow, with Maduro versus Capriles (just like a year ago), would Capriles be able to win this time? If the majority voted for him, do you think the government would try to rig the election to stay in power? I think the majority of people will vote this time for Capriles, like the last time we had elections. And you can expect everything from the government, they can be capable to rob another election again, in front of our faces.
What is your opinion of the major opposition figures like Capriles and Lopez? Are they capable of organizing resistance strong enough to force government changes? Yes, Capriles and Lopez are people capable enough to do these changes, we had to admit that sometimes the pressure is so high that they commit mistakes, but Capriles is the main responsable when it comes to create a vision where the government isn't winning the general public opinion poll.
I've met some wonderful Venezuelans over the last few years. They and you deserve a better government. I hope the future will be bright for Venezuela. Thanks for your wishes, we all here appreciate this kind of messages, thanks again!
I've seen a lot of my Venezuelan friends on Facebook calling for people to take notice. They say "the world needs to know about what is going on in Venezuela" "sign this petition for the international community to act." But what then? What would you want to achieve by this? Once the world takes notice, and the US Secretary of State has made a statement condemning the violence, then what? What's the end game? I know you guys are putting your safety on the line going out to protest and aren't just sitting at your computers messing around, but I once saw a photo (from a friend in Venezuela) that made me think...It was a picture of an ugly looking protest in Argentina with the caption "this is how the rest of the world protests" and then a picture of several people on their blackberries with the caption "this is how Venezuela protests." How is this different than previous protests? HAHAHA, that was true. Until February 12th of this year, the very hard situation we are all living in this country is very hard and more and more people are taking notice of that, you don't know what to expect for the people or the government. But this has to end.
What are some of the ways the protesters are fighting against the government? Organizing marchs, rallies, street assemblies, social media, the use of some services like streaming, reddit, international organizations like OEA (today some students in the capital gave some documents to official OEA members) and some more ways that i can stay for hours just telling you. Thanks for asking!.
The protesters are live-streaming the protest. Is there a link to the video? Right now it is very difficult to find a Streaming channel that has the live footage, but you can go to Twitter and put these hashtags #PrayForVenezuela #SOSVenezuela to be informed and thanks so much for caring about our people!
Have you ever been scared for your life because of the goverment? Yes, today i went to a protest in my hometown and in some point people began to run becuase of the police and the national guard, i thought so much stuff about my family and my friends, thankfully nothing bad happened, and that's an example of many that i can give you. Thanks for asking.
What is it like living there right now? A nightmare, if you go out to the streets at night or even very early in the morning you'll get robbed. If you go out in public transportation you'll see ridiculously large lines of people trying to get into the supermarkets to find some food and supplies. There's a group of people called "Bachaqueros" who smuggle these products to Colombia and leave us with nothing in the shelves of the grocery stores and market chains. I can stay for hours just telling you what kind of hell is this. Thanks for asking!
Why take those products to Colombia and not the other way (taking them from Colombia)? Edit: typo. Because of the currency exchange, it's better to sell those products in Colombia and bring the money to Venezuela, sell the money in the black market and obtain huge profits in our Currency (Bolivar). All of these is because our currency is devaluated.
I've never been to Venezuala but I've always been fasinated and confused by Chavez, and now even more so with Maduro. I happened to be traveling in Cuba when Chavez passed away and his image was everywhere, almost as much as Che's image. Everyone was crying and seemed to be really heartbroken over his passing. As an American it is confusing for me, we have always been told that Chavez was the epitome of evil and then I go to Cuba and it seems like he is worshiped. What is your opinion on the American perception of Chavez and the opposite side, the Cuban perception of him. Did the majority of Venezualans approve of him? What do you think of the other leaders like Evo Morales of Bolivia and the Castros of Cuba and their relationship with Chavez and your country? Yes, when Chavez was alive the majority of the Venezuelans voted for him, but that doesn't mean that he was a great president. Chavez is the main responsable of this mess we are living, through expropiations and price controls, concentration of powers. I do not think bad of Cubans or Bolivians or any other people, but I think that our leaders are hiding behind a populist speech and are giving a bad time to our people, is fascinanting the figure of Hugo Chavez as a martyr of the poor people, but if you investigate more and talk more about it with venezuelans, you will find another face of the coin, THANKS SO MUCH FOR ASKING!
Did the government give any reason for the media blockade? Even if it's bullshit, did they say anything at all to justify it? It's just scary as hell when governments do that; it feels like they're just pulling the curtains around their country so they can kill their own people. No they didn't give a valid reason, they say that it's because social responsability, if a newspaper puts an article talking about crime or criticism to the government that for them is innecesary and generates more violence, when in the constitution it says that people has the right to be informed by free press and free forms of communication, Thanks for caring so much!
My girlfriend is from magarita and currently lives in the us. She marched with the students in 2002 and is heavily active in spreading awareness. She believes that these marches are doing nothing more than giving police more opportunities to promote their violence. I tend to agree with her. It have been shown in various other marches that the government doesnt give a shit about its citizens. Why march if you know what is going to happen again and again? When comes the time for you all to get your own hands bloody and start making a point? What is your end game? What are you trying to do by walking unarmed toward the police? Level the playing field... We believe in the consequences that these protests will bring, if we fall in despair we will commiting the same mistakes that we as opposition make in the past. We need to stay on the streets showing the world and to our countrymen that we are tired of the situation and that the government won't have an easy job on trying to get us out of the way. When you ask me what's the end game is like asking "why you are living?". There are some questions that can't be answered. A big hug to your girlfriend from Venezuela, and we wish you the very best! Thanks for asking pal!
When was the last time you drank a glass of milk? When was the last time you ate chicken? Also when was the last time you went to KFC and how much does it cost? When was the last time you used toilet paper? And how much did you pay for all 3? Milk last week. Cicken today and it cost us 20$ per Kg in a black market, the only place you can find the quantity you want, we bought three Kg. Here in my house right now we don't have toilet paper since four days. KFC combos are between 9 to 12$ You'll pay for all those 3 things like 27 to 30 bucks.
The US has a history of funding and encouraging government overthrows for our own political gain. The original commenter was being sarcastic, implying that these protests are somehow being funded or encouraged by the United States, secretly. I have no where near enough information to form an opinion, but what do you think? False. Indeed we need help.
I wish I could; I wish we would. His original comment was about CIA backing-- the CIA doesn't give money to help actual people, just financial and political interests. This is about the only way our government would get involved. I really want to thank you for those words, we Venezuelans really appreciate your concerns THANKS!
If you really want help start fucking with the oil. That's hilarious, but what dou you really mean?
He means that if we want other countries to act, which is not what we want, we need to stop selling oil to the US so they can export some democracy here, a la Irak. That's insane, we depend on the US so much that we can do that stuff in years, one has to be sincere and realistic.
En que parte del pais vives?? Es la situacion la misma en todas partes o mas concentrada en Caracas? Tengo muchos amigos en Venezuela, espero que todos esten bien y seguros Amigo bien estamos por los momentos, seguros nadie. Vivo en Maracaibo y de verdad la cosa acá esta calmada, siempre hay uno que otro bobo que quiere prender en fuego la ciudad pero se le calla, en el centro del país la cosa si esta muy caliente, no se sabe que pueda pasar de acá a unos días. Muchas gracias espero tus amigos se encuentren en sus casas tranquilos. Exitos!
Gracias por contestarme amigo! Ojala las cosas se arreglen de una manera suave y rapida, y gracias por hacer esta AMA para que estas noticias se llevan a todas partes. Suerte Amigo! De verdad muchísimas gracias de parte de todos mis hermanos venezolanos.
Cuales estan sus metas y como puedan tener exito? Es un golpe del estado posible y si es, que proximo? Como van a arreglar la economia? Nuestra meta es crear un escenario donde nuestra población y la comunidad internacional se de cuenta del grave destino por el que estamos yendo. Para tener éxito se necesita de la colaboración de todos los Venezolanos y sobre todo no caería mal el apoyo de ciertas organizaciones extranjeras. Acá en mi país el Golpe de Estado es algo ilegal y no creo que sea la manera de resolver las cosas y para arreglar nuestra economía es necesario hacerla un poco o mucho a decir verdad mas flexible y libre, nadie quiere invertir en Venezuela y nadie quiere trabajar por ella debido a la situación economica y politica inestable que presentamos, Muchas gracias por preguntar en español!
What are the goals of the protest? I haven't been keeping up. Is it more reform (we don't want to change the government just some of the policies) or more revolutionary (we want Maduro out!)? We want Maduro out. To be sincere, but that's very difficult, but we think that the consequences of these protests will be a vital tool that will help us to get out of this nightmare we are living right now.
Some protests are pacific, some are not. We are humans and we are tired of this.
I understand that this must be very hard for you. I wish for Venezuela the same I wish for all countries, happy, free and comfortable citizens. Venezuela has a lot of economic problems and that isn't good. Good luck to the Venezuelan people. Also, how is Maduro taking this? He shows up on the television dancing with kids and saying things about pacifism when in the streets there's a lot of violence and complaints about the administration 7 out of 10 Venezuelans thinks that this government can't find solutions to our problems, and that's worrying.
Pacifism from the guy that pushed for greater relations with Gaddafi's Libya who funded many terrorist organizations? Hahahahaha! Good one. What are the solutions to the problems Venezuelans are facing and how can a new government take those solutions into effect? First we have to create a Front of Social Responsability and a good Justice System, make our economy more flexible and less bureoucratic, get rid of the currency exchange regime in a mid-term, and be sincere with the prices of the products so that Producers of goods can sell them for a fair profit, that's a tiny example of what miracle we have to do here.
How has the government managed the economy? I know the government claims to be socialist but is it really? How about the justice system? Our justice system is the worst in the hemisphere, we have people who are called "Prams" they are criminals who control the prisons and the crime in streets from there, that's a tiny example of corruption in that context.
About the economy whe have a currency exchange regime that only lets you carry 3000$ a year for expenses if you want to go out borders and a black market where you cand find dollars 8 times more expensive.
Our inflation is killing us with 56% the last year, the largest in the continent (some say the world) and some extraoficial studies say that was 78%.
Our currency is devaluated weekly so you can imagine how we are dying slowly in here, we don't know what to expect. These are some examples, thanks so much for asking.
You're welcome. That sounds horrible. Is there anything I can do to help? Yes, you can talk about it to your friends anywhere you live and spread it through social media, you can find information in twitter in these hashtags #PrayForVenezuela #SOSVenezuela or even on International Media, that's all we got, but THANKS SO MUCH FOR CARING, We venezuelans really appreciate that!
Han habido mas muertos ademas de los dos jóvenes que murieron en la protesta pasada? Que clase de ambiente se vive en este momento en Venezuela? Suerte Chaval! Gracias por preguntar en ESPAÑOL! Si amigo, han habido mas muertos y desaparecidos, liberaron a ciertos estudiantes, pero las calles estan peligrosas tanto por ladrones como por autoridades represoras, sobre todo en los estados del centro del país, acá en mi ciudad las autoridades han dado el ejemplo. Muchas gracias!
Do you perceive the risk of a military coup if the protesting escalates? Hay gente que ya sean formando los grupos guerillas? No guerrilla groups doesn't exist here, they are from Colombia and they stay in the border. But i think that if the pressure and instability here continues a military coup is feasible. Thanks so much for asking and caring, we really appreciate that!
Are there any parts of Venezuela where people experience economic freedom, a relatively normal life? Only the richs and the criminals experience that economic freedom here, the medium class had a resurgence in the last 2000s but with the global crisis and the policies that the government took, everything screwed up and people now have to make miracles to just live a tiny decent life.
Vivo en Londres y siempre me ha llamdo la atención que mas o menos todos los venezolanos que he conocido han hablado mal de Chavez y sus metas. Siempre he luchado con eso, por que pensaba que su proyecto era impresionante (aquí me refiero a sus logros en subir la alfabetización del país) y algo que iba en contra de la lógica neoliberal en la que vivimos. Sin embargo, tengo la mente abierta y acepto que no vivo en el país y por lo tanto nunca voy a saber realmente lo que pasa. Tengo muchos cuates que dicen que ese punto de vista (que supone que Chavez era un idiota que no sabía lo que estaba haciendo) le pertence a la gente que tiene dinero. Te quiero hacer la pregunta: estás de acuerdo con eso? O sea, la gente pobre, que dice de lo que hizo Chavez y de lo que está occuriendo en el país ahora? Muchísimas gracias por preguntar querido amigo! Chavez era un hombre con mucho carisma, que se escondía tras un discurso populista que a la larga le jugó en su contra. En realidad no todos los planes y obras de su gobierno fueron malas, ese el de alfabetización fue uno de los que le dio mas fuerza a su gestión, pero la situación que vivimos ahora viene dada gracias a su incompetencia en el area economica, el era militar, no economista ni abogado y ni siquiera comerciante. Y al parecer nunca se rodeo de buenos consejeros. Al final tantas expropiaciones y controles de cambio de la moneda resquebrajaron nuestra economía y la terminaron dejando como esta, un paraíso de la corrupción e impunidad donde para comprar un paquete de azucar al precio economico debes hacer una cola de 6 horas en un supermercado. Amigo no crea en populismos, hay que ser realista y saber que el comercio y las libertades son expresiones humanas intransferibles. Muchísimas gracias por preguntar, de parte de los Venezolanos un gran abrazo!
My fiancee is from Venezuela, having moved to America two years ago. Her brother will be coming next month on a travel visa and staying. Have you ever thought of doing the same? I am at a march in Kansas City now, fyi. WOW! That's amazing! if i had the chance to move to the USA with some family there i would do it. Cheers to all the people there and thanks for taking some of your time for our cause!
I understand that governments can mess up economies. What kinds of things did the Venezuelan government do to cause this mess? Expropiations, Currency Exchange Regime, Price Controls, Corruption, Smuggling, Frauds, Bureaucracy, Populism, Impunity, Incompetence, and more and more. Thanks so much for asking, from all Venezuelans we appreciate that!
I hope the best for you. Thanks so much for those words, the same for you and for your people!
What is your favorite home-cooked meal? It's Quesillo, it's a traditional dessert from my country, here you can find how to cook it >> Link to www.jahnweb.com Thanks for asking!
I had to click there to figure out what Quesillo was. Argentinian tip: Mix it with Dulce de Leche. Absolutely delicious. EDIT: We call it Flan. Hehehe! Delicious!
Venezuela is also known to have the best plastic surgery (booty!) in South America. How does Ms. Universe bright forth light on your current political and human issues? $6 for a 2 Ltr of coke? A butt implant has to cost bank! How do you fund the revolution there? Very awful, there is not a revolution here, it's just an evolution to a kleptocracy. And yes a plastic surgery here will cost an eyeball. We have an actual Miss Universe and the worst economy and political bureaucracy of the Universe too. If you need a passport as a Venezuelan you have to pay more than 1000$ to get one or wait 6 to 9 months. That's an example of the corruption here.
That is awful to hear. I hope there's a better future for you, if not there, some place else if you migrate. Jah' Bless! THANKS FOR YOUR WISHES, we really appreciate it!
Do you recognize Socialism as an evil ideology? Not that way, i'm not a radical, I just think that we don't live in Socialism and neither we're going in transition to it, and to answer your question I don't believe in socialism, because it doesn't fit to the human character and to the XXI Century ways of living, that's my humble opinion.
Thanks so much for asking, we Venezuelans appreciate that, cheers!
What would you like to say to the millions of people who believe they finally can get socialism right? I don't understand the question, do you mean > what can i say for people who believe in socialism and have not tried it?
Idealists in first world countries always seem to want to establish socialism where they live, because they believe they can do it correctly. What would you say to them? THATS A GOOD QUESTION: Eduard Bernstein german social democrat (close to Marx and Engels) once said that Marxism and his derivates had to be revisited in the study camp, he once believed that through Capitalism you can achieve a good amount of socialism in cilivized communities. Personally i don't believe in socialism, and i think that commerce and freedom are indeed natural forms of expression in human beings. Those first world countries can take those experiments because they have enough money and people prepare for the understanding of that, but i don't recommend it.
Are you allowed to grow food in your house? How about owning an hen that lays egg? will the government take away that too? Yes we Venezuelans (said by the government) can do that, but I live in an apartment, the government doesn't take away EVERYTHING that people have, but i have to say that expropiations to private enterprise in the last 7 years is the main cause of the shortages that we are experiencing.
Obligatory. MUST SEE.
Hey man, Brazilian here. First of all, I had no idea about what was going on in Venezuela until I red this AMA. I can't believe our government support Maduro. How bad is the media blockade? Very bad man! We have all the television media controlled by the government or even owned by them, like Globovisión (former opposition TV Channel) And two days ago the government blocked the access to the photos and images on twitter so you can imagine what's the mess we are living here. THANKS SO MUCH FOR ASKING! Here in Venezuela we are grateful in answering!
Is it legal to own a gun in your country? No, since two years ago it is illegal to own a gun, that law has just increase the crime in the streets, people doesn't have any medium to defend themselves.
Indeed. In the US it's "terrorist" on the Internet, it's "Troll" In Venezuela, "Fascist", in Argentina, "Golpista". Simple words used by the simple minded to discredit those that don't agree with the establishment. Yes, that's it, Thanks so much for passing by and leave that comment.
Do you see a lot of women at the protests or standing up to police? How are women generally treated in this difficult time? Yes, in fact yesterday i went to a protest and the majority of the people were women, in my country we always had a high respect for them, and in my hometown i haven't heard anything about wounded or dissapeared women, but recently a video recorded in Maracay (City from the center of the country) shows horrible events were a women is beated by policemen and even been robbed >> Link to www.youtube.com
Thanks so much for asking and Vivan las Mujeres!
Good luck to you. It's amazing what you are doing. Thanks so much for asking and passing by, we wish the very best for you and your people!
Did you vote for Maduro? That's a good question, i didn't vote for Maduro or Chavez. Thanks so much for asking!
Even if the U.S. helped you, what makes me think your countrymen won't just turn on us like everyone else we've helped in the past? Then WE'RE the bad guys. Rómulo Betancourt (Twice President of my country) said: "Go ahead and tell Fidel Castro that when this country needed heroes, it didn't imported them, it gave birth to them".
I don't think the US are the bad guys in everywhere, ask that to Japan, Panamá, South Korea, Post-War Europe, the people that's saying those kind of things are the leftists that don't have any space to live.
How's that whole socialism thing working out for you guys? Bad, it's disgusting and depressing, there's no law, there's no justice, there's no incentive, there's nothing.

Take care of yourself and your family and friends, mi amigo. -from Brasil. Thanks so much for your words, we really appreciate it! We wish the best for Brazil, and his people too. Don't forget about us! Thanks again amigo!
Fellow Venezuelan here. Just came here to say thanks to both of you for bringing a light to the situation. Stay safe! We are brothers and brothers take care of other brothers, thanks so much for passing by. Viva Venezuela.
Definitely not just another CIA coup attempt, defiantly not that. Same shit different day, read up on the history of "popular" coups attempts... Excuse me. So what do you mean? Be straightforward pls.
The 2002 "coup" was believed to be backed by the CIA. Some say, some not. I don't really care if the CIA has to be related with that, here in my country we are living in a very hard situation for every venezuelan. We need help and solutions not theories.
I think he is being sarcastic. The US is full of leftists who think that the Venezuelan riots are all just spoiled rich kids backed by the CIA. Thanks for helping me understand the sarcasm used by Cgn38. And this is not backed by the CIA. In fact we need some help here.
Our president of the US is a socialist too, were all screwed. We Venezuelans before Chavez always had a great relationship with our brothers from USA, we wish the very best for you and your people. Stay safe and in peace. Thanks again for passing by!
How does it feel to be a counter-revolutionary hack for the CIA? Excuse me but I don't understand the question.
