I dont accept ads, or aggressive brand/s accts or paid toots (I’ve been approached) but I do support free & #opensource programs. We have some amazing creative orgs represented on the #Fediverse thru #Mastodon’s super-scalable #ActivityPub implementation.
If you havent tried them then you’re missing out (a-z). U have control over ur social & creative lives w #FLOSS
I block bots that follow everything & everyone under the sun when I find them. Please follow this account freely, however. If you have a follow bot, have some sort of very specific follow guidelines after your bot is followed first or accepts you following them. ie you run a platypus server and you want people that talk about platypi ad nauseam. Make a bot that says Hi, can I follow your amazing platypus toots - yes or no. I see no difference in this & the new GDPR email rules.

Hi everyone! This isnt a subtoot. Some of us have no clue if the art or photography you post is yours & our hashtag lists dont catch them either if there’s no #’s. #’s are annoying but it does help folks who like to revisit old work or catch up on topics. It is also good etiquette to post the original author + where you found it or state author/creator unknown. Not all servers can afford full text search either. Please use #MyArt #MyWork #Art #Photography etc if you dont use #MastoArt

One of the many reasons why 1984.is is awesome. At least they're honest.

Hi! I just got mastodon, and have no clue what I'm doing, so please tell me if I'm doing something wrong lol
realized you could make a sort of markov chain text generator using concatenated word vectors instead of the tokens themselves, which has the benefit of being able to cope pretty well with out-of-vocab strings. anyway, here's word-vector-markov Jane Austen elaborating on what the Internet is

Digital/Vector Artist Needed Show more
@ConnyDuck the dev of @Tusky is looking for "a digital #artist to commision for 3 assets for the mastodon client #Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred.
already got 2 replies implying that im being ironic. i'm not. this isnt a joke. never update anything. it's too risky. software is just getting worse and you have to keep as much of the good stuff around until it physically just doesn't work anymore
I should make art. But I feel like it's so hot and I'm so tired that the only way that is happening is if I dust myself with crushed up pigments and roll around on a giant sheet of paper using my own sweat as water......
The human body is mostly water, this still counts as watercolours right?
