My Bio

likes: elves (obviously), nature, science, RPG/LARP, fantasy literature, computers & Tux penguin and some computer games, J.S. Bach L.v. Beethoven and Black Metal, cooking and eating interesting food, most thing that contain chocolate chocolate, spring, sports like wandering and swimming but I also like bow shooting and Tae Kwon Do, (looking at) artwork and photography (looking and making), spirituality, psychology, cats, the air after a rain and much more...

dislikes: Eclipse, corrupt politicians, winter without snow, stupid people (that might mean a lot of different things), too much maths, Mircosoft/intel's business behaviour, (negative) stress, music that doesn't really touch me but that is often played everywhere you go in town, bad RPG techniques, setbacks in life (who doesn't?), getting awake too early in the morning and much more...

Current Residence: here in front of my box

Favourite genre of music: Metal, NRW, classic (Beethoven, Bach), some medieval

Favourite style of art: Nature photography, realistic style paintings (but of fantasy/scifi content), some pixel arts

Operating System: Gentoo Linux mostly

MP3 player of choice: a few (e.g. audacious in Unix/Linux, winamp2 for W32), portable: Cowon (plays OGG-Vorbis and FLAC!)

Shell of choice: bash (as most penguins I guess), popping flower (that's a pyrotech)

Wallpaper of choice: varying

Skin of choice: my own? (computer related: default skins most of the time for media players as well as games)

Favourite cartoon character: I don't read so many comics, but ElfQuest is good. The walking dead is great, too!

Personal Quote: I'm an elf. I'm allowed to do that.

Canceled Core

-- Canceling Core -- So I cancelled my Core membership that I once had bought to support my green arts paradise. Okay, back in the days they also claimed "Core" would be ad-free then and some other benefits, but the only feature I might ever have used was mass upload to if you happen to have a larger posting session, well, and being free of most ads/tracking crap. *sigh* But I didn't see a point in supporting a radical change like Eclipse any further. Eclipse was uncalled for, it's absolutely unfinished and it means change for the sake of change, not for actually improving things. Workflow is down the drain, and it is slow (JavaScript as usual) and buggy. It scared away a good lot of people. And it scared the cat. :p So I asked and was given what they labelled a "courtesy refund". I'd rather have my "good old green" back, but so be it. -- Downfall of Art Platforms -- I did notice the slow dwindling of these kind of platforms, indeed. Elfwood vanished completely, which was

Hello is anyone out there? (I wouldn't be surprised in case people are already gone for good.) I am looking for alternatives. To the thing that formerly was my online home. That was destroyed around May, 20th 2020. (Occasionally I even referenced in forum footers where you could fill in a home page.) It was destoryed by some ecliptic event... I need something that is a) "international speaking" (English; German would be kind-of-okay but that would exclude most people for the language barrier) b) not-focused on anything specific c) has some kind of community, option for focused-on-a-topic groups/clubs, categories and the likes d) that does not use tons of pesky JavaScript and that does not have a fucked up interface like Eclipse, that does not take my art hostage and so on. Something that simply does not suck. I was here for nature photography, fantasy and sci-fi art. Classic artwork, digital, I didn't care as long as it looked nice. Or horror art. I
