Hello my lovely #MastoArt-ists!
Looking for other creative instances to try out? Take a look at these excellent choices:
While I'm at it, I'm going to make one more thread of posts, and that's about how you can support •ART.
As many of you know, to accommodate our recent influx of new users I had to purchase a server upgrade to handle the extra weight.
Our instance is fully hosted and managed by @mastohost, who does such a fantastic job keeping us updated and running smoothly!
But it also costs money every month, and we rely on the support of our users to keep going.
Mastodon.ART also has a Profile directory:
You can opt-in to add yourself to it in your Preferences page. Any hashtags in your profile will be used to help find you in the directory, too
Check it out, and consider adding yourself if you feel comfortable with it. It's a great way to find new folks to follow!
I'm going to start a thread of quick #MastoTips for new users. Apologies for any hiccoughs, these toots aren't planned, so they may seem a little haphazard.
First of all: Welcome to Mastodon! If you're coming from Twitter you'll find some things very similar. Mastodon is a microblogging platform for sharing thoughts, photos, music, video, etc.
Posts on Mastodon are affectionately called "toots". You can laugh, it's OK. We found it funny too when we first joined.
•ART will never serve you ads, track you, sell your data, or charge you to use our site. But there are still costs related to running one of the largest artistic communities on Mastodon, and we rely on the generous support of our users to keep the lights on.
If you have the means and inclination, you can support us in two ways:
Otherwise, just keep on inspiring the with your amazing art! Thank you!
Please take a moment to refresh yourself on our rules/CoC:
Our rules were written in the spirit of keeping our community safe/supportive/fun for everyone, not just for our users but for the wider Fediverse as well.
Make sure you're well versed in them and understand/respect the spirit in which they were written! Repeated violations may result in your account being silenced or suspended.
Thank you, and take care!
Hello my lovely •ARTists!
I'd like to take this time to remind everyone about our rules regarding NSFW content:
If you are posting artwork that needs to be hidden/CWed/Marked as Sensitive, you *must* describe what is below the cut/why it was hidden so people can make an informed decision to view it or not.
In the future we're going to start taking a harder line on this, as we've been a bit lax on enforcing it up until now.
If you need clarification, do ask! #Housekeeping
Grendel is a powerful sorcerer who is a self proclaimed arch demon of prosperity and fortune, the giver of gifts. Grendel's magic is both meant to create and extract awe and excitement from people as it's a source of energy for him for his magical ability.
He's also a dingus idiot.
