Pinned toot

I'm Madison/Maddy/Makyo, a writer and software developer working at the Internet Archive. I'm also a trans woman, poly, and a big heckoff furry. I'll probably post about all of these.

I often feel feels, so do expect MH-tagged posts.

I'm also pretty free with my body, what sexuality I do have, and kink, so do expect CW'd posts and NSFW-tagged images of such. Recently, I've been recovering from GRS, so you can also expect posts and pictures, all approrpiately CW'd. Cheers!

Protip:

When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

Maddy And The Unreasonable Extension Of Creative Restrictions To The Rest Of Life

That's not to say 1:1 or small group RPs don't take place in environments, btw, just that they seem to be ill-definied. Things such as couches or beds only appear when one has to specify *swoons onto a handy couch* or w/evs.

Another possibility is that I'm just bemoaning the decline in MUCKs and other environments where a description of a room is obligatory. FWIW I also think the singular focus that comes with being restricted to one location helps with this. Stuck in a room, a bar is logical.

Joked a while back, Makyo's First Axiom: Get enough furries together on the internet and they will spontaneously generate a bar/tavern/club/cafe in which to hang out.

That seems to be going out of style. Probably a few causes: the decline in popularity of large-group RP; and the decline in popularity of RPing in an environment, rather than simply just with entities.

Then again, I could just be wrong! Do larger RP Telegram/Discord channels exist, and do they still take place within worlds?
