Recently learned about Art Fight. It's only for the month of July, but it's not too late to join. Basically, you're assigned a team, and you "attack" each other with art. The winning team is the one with the most points, which are accumulated through art attacks and effort. A much better explanation can be found in their [FAQ](https://artfight.net/info/faq).
Art Fight


was trying to do the joke/meme where someone posts a word and other people in the thread just post the same word, but it seems that has gone over everyone’s head and i am sad

for the most part you’re right, but i feel like, at least online, people were so much nicer during the 2000s and early 10s. people seem downright vicious these days.

like. i come online to chill. the world is a dumpster fire. i’m here to get away from that for a bit. why are you (you referring to the aggressive people) here?

maybe it makes them feel better. all i can say to them, as someone who has been voluntarily hospitalized for homicidal ideation and is disabled due to rage issues and STILL manages to be kind and civil most of the time - get help maybe? idk? what is so joyful about getting a rise out of people? there’s so much more to life?


i’m lgbt and i’m more worried about the contraceptives. i require them for medical reasons. multiple.

i actually import a specific type from another country that is not available in the us, as i respond MUCH better to it than what’s available here (and you know WHY it’s not available here? capitalism. it’s not profitable, so it never reached the US). if contraceptives are banned, i could get arrested for ordering them.

@admin I saw your comment on @debanqued’s post about how crypto is a scam… I’d say maybe most crypto is a scam, but not all. This video talks about advantages of cryptocurrency vs. fiat. You don’t have to watch, just thought you might be interested. I learned from it and it definitely made me more interested in crypto.

apologies if i’m repeating myself, but sadly, i feel like most people are aggressive these days.

I notice some of the hardcore leftists on the fediverse seem mean. Makes me anxious, especially as someone who has a lot to learn.

Late response since I haven’t been on in a bit - I’m all for microcars as long as they have that sweet, sweet AC (I have severe temperature regulation issues). They’re very cute.

Glad I watched the video before commenting lol. I was about to say “But people with disabilities still need cars!” Glad the creator agreed that cars should still be allowed for us!

Might be worth a try.

Kagi is tolerable so far. I’m currently trying metager.org out.

Metager limits you, so perhaps I’ll alternate between Kagi, Metager, and Whoogle?

disappointed that I didn’t see my sweet Sansa on there </3

also disappointed that ipods are going away when dankpods made people want them again… tim apple!!! >:(

this sounds interesting… but any idea how this compares to whoogle?

but in small numbers, it seems. i’ve been BEGGING my facebook friends to leave facebook and i provide alternatives… just crickets.

i’m tired of facebook. for some reason my main facebook is entirely glitched so i can only log in in one town. i get locked out for “security reasons” if i’m out of town. accurately answering security questions does not get me back in.

i was literally in my hometown - which i spent four years on on facebook, at least, and it’s literally listed as my hometown in my profile - and i was locked out of my facebook.

tired of this. just move to freaking friendca. what’s so special about facebook? ads? that they spy on you? facebook jail no matter your political views? anyone refusing to at least try to leave that site is a fool.

didn’t a ton of people move to mastodon?

i’m not in the loop. the obvious solution would be people ditching twitter, but they probably won’t (i imagine the amount that moved to mastodon is small).

people hate facebook and yet they refuse to leave, when several viable alternatives exist. it sucks.

Edit: Hmm, interesting. Maybe I broke the website, I can't add anymore to the post at all. Some JSON line 1 error or something.

How about you?

What made you decide to join Beehaw?
I'm just bored and exploring the web. I've also taken more of an interest in privacy and open-sourced/decentralized projects. I hope that the more active these projects become, the more interest they will get, and people will leave sites like Facebook and whatnot. I want these projects to succeed :)

Another lesser known art tool. Not sure which OSes it's available on other than iOS, but my search engine seems to suggest it's available on other platforms. On iOS there is a free version available as well as a paid version. It does have pen pressure as long as you have a compatible drawing pen!

I feel like a lot of people haven't heard of Krita. I think it's a fantastic free drawing program and I highly recommend it. According to Wikipedia, it is available for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and Chrome OS.
