It's so nice to have so many new queer and creative toots joining us on tootplanet. Welcome all.

I'm Becka and I'm a middle-aged British fantasy writer and wannabee artist. I also and make maps in Campaign Cartographer. Recently I've been messing around with Blender and Audacity (not at the same time)

I'm a quoi-romantic asexual who generally identifies as a Cis Woman though I am noodling at this recently.

Feel free to follow me. I love making new friends.

This seems to be a concert for many Mastodon newcomers so I will address it in this toot:

As the instance admin, I have the ability to read your DMs. They're unencrypted.

There are two ways I can do this:
1- Looking directly into the instance's database
2- If someone reports a DM you send

I will never do the former. However, the latter is a different story, as I need to moderate them to keep the instance and its users safe, and unless not doing so threatens that safety, I will respect your privacy.

If you need to exchange sensitive information that required absolute secrecy, I'm strongly recommending you to use any encrypted method of communication isntead of Mastodon DMs.

Thank you for your attention and understanding!

WIP now has forests and a strangely darkened area of worldbuilding significance.

While I'm still not 100% happy with the mountains I have added the rivers on the WIP

I have a tree frog living by the front door. Every day I have dozens of wasps visiting the pan of water I leave for them, and one of the yellow jackets keeps foraging for breakfast in my kitchen every morning. I'm like the Mary Poppins of weird little things. Or Snow White. Whatever.

Reasons why I howled with laughter in the shop today

More on my WIP. How do these mountains look, mastopeeps? Mountain like?

Assuming they are okay, rivers will be next.

Current WIP which I'm making in GIMP using this tutorial. Steps so far (1. Coastline, 2 sea colur, 3. land colour)

Next step is the mountains which never turn out right for me. One day i will master them...

This is a bit of an odd request but are physical key covers a thing? I seem to remember using a blank one in elementary school to learn typing.

For example, I'm looking to learn bulgarian but I'd like something to lay over my keys so that when I look down I can see the bulgarian phonetic layout on my qwerty keyboard but then if I need to go back to US QWERTY I can just peel it off the keyboard (and switch modes in windows)

Boosts are welcome.

I want to make a map. What should I make a map of...

Anyway I think I might ask about more hours on Monday. I think my stamina is high enough now and I need the moolah

Good evening, Today brings good news. I am officially out of probationary period at work :-D

One of the best little things about Mastodon is that we’re all in a Federation now so we get like comm badges and colored shirts and shore leave and Holodeck time and earl gray tea.

If you're an instance admin, you might want to block 101010.pl entirely. They seem to be hiding a JavaScript crypto miner on their site: functional.cafe/@phoe/10054494

Been messing about with a potential design for a cover for one of my WIPS. I need to work on the gold effect but I think it has potential.

If you ever find I boost your toot then immediately unboost it, it's because Mastodon refreshed the stream just as I was trying to open up a CW. 🤦‍♂️

God I hate the dynamic web. It's like opening up your refrigerator, reaching in to grab a bottle of orange juice, then just as your hand is about to grab it the bottle disappears and you smash your hand into half a dozen eggs instead.
