Re: Artwork and Social Media

Honestly, fuck each and every uploading site that incentivizes upload frequency over actual quality. I don't care if something is 8 years old or 8 hours old, if it's good, that's all that should matter! Also, big up to the sites with 'recent' sections which allow you to find newer artists that usual...

Re: thoughts on drama commentary channels?

Today's drama commentary channels are a mixed bag. Some channels are really well researched, and some very much aren't. With setups relatively easy to find, almost anyone can just pick something to rage over and get views from it. I guess it was always kind of like that. Although a big problem with ...

Re: do emoji in posts behave strangely for anyone else?

I think this is an issue with the SVG using its raw size, or not having a set width/height limit. Remove the stylesheets off of some websites that use SVGs and you get a similar effect.
