Yeah, I noticed my art was starting to look poo-ey recently when I uploaded it there. But I am without another gallery. I am not keen to use deviantART again…

I have an account which was only really used to overcome the dashboard-only filter on someone else's Tumblr, which was nuked recently.

Kind of ironic considering I was thinking months ago to actually use it for posting art as Twitter's image compression is... not good. Even then, before this mess started, Tumblr started denying access to full resolution images, something I didn't exactly like.

I liked Tumblr as a place to post art. But I know on my main I posted all kinds of crap, so I'm really glad I had a specific tumblr for my art only.

A couple of things got flagged and they were completely baffling.

Tumblr had the problem that it was nice to follow people who made stuff, but if you did it was also really easy to get completely drowned in reblogs and the like. At least with Twitter/Tweetdeck I can turn those off.

Last I messed with Tumblr was over a writing project that barely took off and that was well over a decade or so ago. Haven't really had a reason to use it since outside of what gets linked from there to other forms of social media (mostly Twitter).

Heh, I only had a Tumblr account to look at 18+ stuff myself so I just went ahead and deleted it because of their TOS change (barely used the thing anyway TBH)

I do have a backup Twitter account in case my old one gets deleted or something though (I did get two strikes on it... one for a stupid reason though (apparently for mentioning suicide in a prevention context) and don't want to risk a third)... also a private Twitter and one for my radio station

Please don't use that word. It's OK if you want to take a break, but the r-word is considered a slur, and it isn't welcome here.

I had to go to chrome://flags/ and manually set Force color profile to "sRGB" so it actually looked proper to everything else on my computer.

Fun.

Anyone who uses a Chromium-based browser, you should check if the color it uses for your images are the same as the colors your Operating System uses. Firefox and IE both used the correct colors for me.

Huh, weird. I noticed some of my screenshots seemed to have slightly off colors, but I could never really tell for sure — being on Linux makes it hard since I don't have the full set of tools I use to check that sort of thing (namely Irfanview and Paint.net )

I'll have to check, and if that is the case, then I'm going to feel a bit silly.

Congrats! Twitter is hopefully a little easier to share art on (and a lot easier to follow people with, I think) so hopefully this gets you some good reach I know I can hopefully follow you closer.

I'd preferably want my account wiped, or banned

Incredibly well -- I'm moving back to Vancouver at the end of December!

Now, on to panicking about how much of a pain in the ass moving is

I'm telling my boss in an hour that I want to move back to Vancouver and work from the office there aaaaaaaaaaaaaa

(turns out even for introverted people, moving somewhere where you know exactly zero people and where the general cultural climate is repeatedly described as "newlyweds and nearly-deads" due to its composition of young couples and retirees is NOT exactly good for one's mental state)

Same, I look at all the new posts and don't have anything to reply to most of them.

Somehow, I'm in the mood to post here, once again.

I think it's about the only place I think I could just write about almost anything (Lot's of buts in here).

It's just a great atmosphere.

I somehow managed to forget I naturally write tersely and that I probably shouldn't worry too much my posts on here are so short.

Re: holiday decorations - The existence of Sinterklaas somewhat supresses early Christmas decoration, but that mostly just means Sinterklaas stuff can be found in shops starting September instead.
