In Saigon yesterday. Lost my glasses. Woman at hotel took me to eyeglass store. Got exam, frames, lightweight anti-glare lenses. Lenses took 20 mins to make. Walked out with a new pair of glasses. Total costs: 500,000 VND or $22 USD

Greetings all, sorry this is a bit late. For the stats, I didn't get an admin response for total number of submissions in September, so I'll just leave that out until they reply.Looking at bansCurrently, we are looking at putting our ban policies into more clear writing and making it more publicly available. Our current ban policies are a little muted and all over the place, so writing this down will be good for us and good for the community. I'm heading this, but am quite busy with personal stuff right now, so no timetable for this.Handling personal info in a crisisMost are probably aware of the tragic and terrible shooting in Vegas earlier this month. /r/pics is glad to be a home to raise awareness for victims and be a place for stories of love, loss, and heroism. Everyone on the /r/pics mods team is moved by these events, and our hearts go out to anyone suffering from this event.All these things said, during the event and shortly afterward, we got many posts from armchair detectives or police radio listeners trying to spread unverified information about suspects or police activity. Spreading information without verification can cause much much more harm than good.With that in mind, we are implementing this policy: we will not allow pictures of crime or terrorism suspects unless at least three major news outlets have published the same picture, and identified the same person, along with citations from the relevant police agencies that confirm it.In addition, we ask that users not post information about police activity during major crisis events as this may jeopardize the lives and safety of LEOs as well as give away information that shouldn't be given away.More info on this can be found here: http://ift.tt/2gkEIfo up rule oneWe are also in some discussion about cleaning up rule one, though I don't have any more information to give at this timeHalloween!Our creative and awesome mods /u/tragopanic and /u/lessons_learnt will be doing some fun stuff for the spookiest month of the year!

I have Cystic Fibrosis and today I turned 24. Honestly never thought I'd make it this far. Don't plan on stopping soon.
