If you're screening your follow requests, it's probably not a good idea to reject or block someone just because their profile picture is empty.

There are many blind people on the Fediverse who don't use profile pictures. For example, the writer Robert Kingett at @blindscribe doesn't use one.

The most reliable way to screen accounts on here is just to read what they have posted, as this better reflects what kind of account they are.

From Uni of Reading (@UniofReading@:twitter:):

"In this experiment Dr Rob Thompson of Reading Meteorology shows just how long it takes water to soak into parched ground, illustrating why heavy rainfall after a #drought can be dangerous and might lead to flashfloods."

As 'Action Fans' attack #PreyMovie as unrealistic for having women warriors, consider that women fought on the front lines in #indigenous non-patriarchal cultures, like Hawaii, but the White Man's World has fought to erase this from history, like our languages.

I'm enjoying Mastodon so far, but there's one or other feature I really miss. So I cobbled a couple of userscripts together to add them!

Userscripts are client-side modifications can be used through browser extensions like Grease / Violentmonkey. IMPORTANT: Don't forget to alter the //@match if you're not at .art.

I'm going to throw everything related into this thread so it's easily mutable because I bet you didn't expect to see this kind of geeking coming from a random art profile! 🙃

Hi! I'm Camila, an artist and illustrator with a love for fantasy and horror.
I've worked with novel covers, concept art and games in general. I lean towards character art but try to keep a broader focus to cultivate the toolset needed for my own weird projects.

Looking forward to meeting other creatives!

Summer Melting in Svalbard

The cumulative melting across #Svalbard between June 1 and July 31, 2022, was 1.5 times larger than the previous record in 2018. Since the start of summer about 40 gigatons of #meltwater has poured into the #ocean.

“The melt anomaly is 3.5 times larger than the 1981–2010 average, and 5 times the interannual variability,” Fettweis said. “Only a changing #climate can explain this.”

The scene: a conference room deep in the bowels of hell a few years ago.
Devil: “Right. Lock those doors. We all stay here until someone comes up with something that will really annoy humans.”
Demons moan and grumble loudly.
One small voice pipes up: “Fitted sheets”.
The devil starts to grin. The grin turns into a chuckle. The chuckle turns into roaring laughter.
“Yessss…YESSSSS!” He roars.

Shout-out to the @PixelDroid folks. Every time I open an issue I get a same-day reply, and they always have the wholesome honesty vibe of "oops, yes that's true, thanks for telling us" or "hmm, that's not supposed to happen, let me look into it". Makes me wanna be a beta tester for even more Fedi apps.
