Rumbled my ass in the marina!!!!
I've learnt it the hard way. There was a minor earthquake swarm and I left the controller unattended for over half an hour, yet it didn't turn off, even though my setting is to turn it off after 10 minutes of inactivity.
Hi everyone, I am a 23 year old girl from Petrinja, Croatia. My town was destroyed by an earthquake yesterday as you may have seen on the news. I lost my house just like many others.
I'd like to earn money for my family so I am offering chess lessons for 20$ an hour for beginners and children as I was playing tournaments and various championships for 10 years and was a national vice champion in the Juniors (younger than 19) group. I haven't been playing regularly for 5 years now but my knowledge is still there. I also offer you lessons in Croatian (native), Czech and Turkish as I have a Bachelor's degree in those languages or if you need something translated to/from any of those languages hit me up. I'm really good at Photoshop so if you want your pictures edited I offer that too.
For any doubts I can show you my ID.
Please DO NOT donate money to me, I will not accept anything unless I can give you something in exchange. Instead, you can donate money/necessities and help my beloved hometown through these official links:
EDIT: I was writing this post in a rush. My lichess username is GazimSve and my instagram is @najmilijaiva. Someone pointed out that showing my ID is a bad idea and I agree so there's my instagram instead of that, you can message me there to verify that it's me. I wasn't on the phone today so I still haven't checked my Reddit DMs, but I will answer your comments and messages asap. A big thank you to everyone, I wish you knew how much this means to me and my family. As for those who claim this is a scam, that's okay I am not forcing anyone to do anything nor am I implying that you have to pay me before receiving the lesson. I take paypal so you're all safe.
EDIT2: I have answered half of the messages, there are a lot so I will do the other half later. Once again many thanks to each and every one of you, together we can overcome everything.
A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the town of Petrinja, just 46km southeast from Zagreb. At the time of writing, there is one casualty, a child in Petrinja. (Update: at least 7 souls have been confirmed so far)
To keep information centralized, please keep your posts about this developing situation to this thread.
I think I speak for everyone when I say that Europe, and this subreddit, stands with Croatia during this difficult time.
To help those affected, you can donate here:
You can also donate directly to the Croatian Red Cross:

Some previous Reddit threads:
Live on the top floor of a 3 story walk-up in Nob Hill. The past week, including just 15 minutes ago, we experienced earthquake like shaking in our apartment. Objects were swaying, and felt my dining room table where I was sitting move side to side. Neighbours below do not feel these events. There are no reported earthquakes on USGS. It’s freaky and happening more frequently. Thoughts? Do we need to be concerned?
Edit: could over pressure form the steam heating system cause something like this? We had a boiler replacement and have had lots of issues with heat etc sense. If the pipes are shaking could that shake the apartment?
I'm on the westside by westcliff, so it was either a big ass wave or my house was shaking for a good few seconds. Either way, I'm too lazy to get up.
Edit: Since this post is rocking I figured I just wanted to tell all of you from Santa Cruz that I love ya'll, you are all amazing, and stay safe.
