I think I never did proper #introductions so...
Heya! :v_paw: I'm , born 11996-12-20
A ♂ Lynxcoon, a furry of the macro kind, I post about (mostly macro/micro) furry stuff (kinks tagged), and (mostly retro) 🖥, 📷, 🎧 and 🕹 stuff. I tinker with all that is obsolete 💾 and will make nearly anything work, but I'm not saying that it's gonna be done in a clean way.
I'm bi, poly, and not looking.
I'm also the co-admin of meow.social which is a furry focused instance, alongside its owner @Tiwy57
Resigning - Plural Cafe important meta
I'm resigning from being admin. I don't think I've given the instance the attention it deserves and haven't been able to post as much. Emotional difficulties from various crises (job, finances etc) have only strained my ability to be effective. I'm thankful to all of the users who have signed up here, from when I first launched the site back in Feb 2018 to today.
Separate from this, I'm unable to continue being the server administrator as well. I'd been making preparations for whomever wants to take over in that role, that also has experience with sysadmin stuff.
The instance should be paid up through the month of December. However... if I cannot find someone to take over for me, the server will shut down on Dec 31st at 12:01a Pacific. I'm going to try and find someone else to help. If you know someone who wants to take over, please DM.
As always, thank you all.
I just said something related in a reply on twitter, but dog damn it's nice to be able to just put a CW on whatever I don't feel comfortable just having open out right away to everyone, and to be able to avoid stuff that would ruin my mental health (aside from moderation stuff, gotta get through for reports sooner than later after all)
Rambling about maybe «drawing» stuff again
Pondering trying to get back into doodling... Was never really good, but at the same time I know it's because I never went far to train and learn, getting too easily down by mistakes and ashamed and cringy when looking at the little I do. And little quite literally, I need to learn to draw bigger than a post stamp if I want to get into it more seriously.
Someone at "notebooknews" didn't get the memo we're a furry social network not interested in putting up advertisement.
Not even able to do that basic research on your target? Doesn't bold well for the quality of your "research" on laptops lol
You'd think the guy would have given up after the first two mails didn't yield any result.
Oh, um. I just realized the "@ me" / "@ OK" emoji I made doesn't have all that much differentiation from the "don't @ me" one aside from red/green. Anyone who's #colorblind, are these too hard to tell apart?
Already a new month?
For last month, we got a total of 20€ through paypal donations, 1€ through patreon that will apply & count to November. Thank you so much to those that donated!
For those that wish to go use a card, we now also have https://www.patreon.com/Nomaxice
We may look into other solutions, if you have suggestions you'd feel more comfortable using.
Thank you all again, you're an amazing bunch!
Beam/mixer streaming service rant
Well that's "nice"
Used to really like Beam pro, having a pal who's one of the founders helped actually get interested in it and it was promising at the time
When they got bought by MS I feared things would go downhill
Well they did. First renaming to "mixer com", subjective but it feels like they went from a hype name to an old marketing fart's idea of what's hype
And now? I can't even change my profile picture because I don't want to link a MS account to beam
Update: We have on meow! :D
