Etiquette PSA 

Examples:

Bad: "Hi!"
Good: "Hi! Are you open for art commissions?"

Talking/asking about prior work doesn't count since it doesn't state your intentions.
Bad: "Hello! I saw your work on [project]."
Good: "Hello! I saw your work on [project] and wanted to know how you achieved [cool thing]."

Even if you just want to become friends and have no specific desire, you should start by introducing a topic of conversation. You're the one reaching out, it's your job to get the conversation going xP

@eishiya This is awesome advise for people reaching out to artists/creators and something I get asked about a lot, (I also get the bad kind of greeting in my messages A LOT, it’s frustrating), thank you for putting this out there.

I was wondering if it’s alright to share this on my art discord and :twitter: as screenshots linking both to your mastodon account and your twitter? (I saw you aren’t active there ATM, it’s just where I get most of those types of messages)

@monarobot Go for it! You're also welcome to copy+paste the text, might be easier for some people to read.

@carcinopithecus Agreed! But, with people you know, it's much easier to establish what's appropriate, since, well, you know them :D
