I'm so upset that the birb site suspended one of my art bots earlier this year. Later this month some of its work is going to be exhibited outside the US, and it would have been nice to show the live version as well.

I've wanted to set up a personal Mastodon instance for my bots so something like this can't happen again but I don't know that I'll have the time to get it done in time.

Well, they're all suspended now, but I really only want to get this one back up and running. The exhibit was, unbeknownst to me, delayed for a long time due to an earthquake so I was surprised to have heard it was finally going forward again. I know this work is just a trifle, but it feels nice to have it recognized as art in a gallery. A dream for it to happen with something I've done.


Huh. Unsuspended within minutes. Really makes you wonder why some other things take so long to do when they're the right thing to do.

I really did not think I made a convincing enough argument to unsuspend.

I wouldn't have written this thread if I thought that it would get unsuspended and definitely wouldn't have if I had any hope of it getting unsuspended so quickly.
