Hello World!

First off, better late than never: Happy Halloween!

Sorry we’ve been a bit quiet lately. But we love you, promises given! We’re just working on a lot of things, and most of us are very busy with their daily lives lately. We’ll be back with you to announce some of our projects tomorrow. <3

Lately, and gladly, here’s a grand thanks to @[email protected] for giving us an amazing Halloween icon!

    Things have been working fine for me, so well done and take whatever time things take.

      I’ll second this. I’ve been engaging with lots of people and it feels like a real community here.

        I rarely contribute and the few interactions Ive had on Lemmy have been leagues better than anything on Reddit (or most other social media).

        I find most people are here because they want the connection, not to earn internet clout. That seems to push people towards discussion, instead of the white noise I see elsewhere.

          Same here. I rarely contribute but have felt more inclined to do so here because when I do I usually get a response from someone that’s actually wanting to contribute to the conversation. Everyone has been super respectful even with controversial topics. On most other platforms I would be lucky for anyone to even read my comment let alone take the time to reply or engage by voting. For us old ass millennials it feels like the old days of the internet back when everyone had a blog or a Tumblr for people to follow, ya know back before Tumblr became whatever the hell it is now lol.

    Aww, thanks so much for the shout out! And thank you for the love in the comments. I hope to make many more themed icons in the future. Keep a lookout!

    I love the Halloween lemmy. I also subscribed to the lemmy dev patreon today. Glad to support the project and seems like a better use of funds than running my own instance.

    Last year I bought 3 bags of candy and ran out crazy fast. We had almost 300 kids come by. Gonna be setting up some tables soon and moving outside. No costumed halloweener left behind.

    The more I look at the icon, the more confused I am by it. Is it a pumpkin head, or a pumpkin mask? The ears are sticking through and there’s a cut out for the nose so I’m guessing mask, but then what the hell happened to its eye? Does the mask turn half your face evil, or did some asshole jab him in the eye?

    Or…is it implied he’s like a Frankenstein’s monster under there, cause of the green ears?

      lol, so it started as a pumpkin head/jack o lantern, but as I was tweaking things here and there, I wasn’t liking it so I kept going back to a very simple design of the orange pumpkin head with green “stem” ears. Then someone suggested making the eyes red and white and it just looked right, so here we are, haha. Sometimes graphic design is just an accident.
