For my work I'll just stick with GIMP, sufficing for my fairly basic things.
With #ClipStudioPaint moving to a subscription pricing format, folks highlight FOSS drawing/illustration programs, primarily #Krita . Having not run it, I can't say much about its functions, but artists say good things about it.
I'm actually thinking about joining Krita's fund https://fund.krita.org/
In Tom Scott's vid "5 Things You Can't Do On British TV," Tom says that folks on YT allocating a good amount of funds or hours on vids should add captions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m__OZ3ZsO4Y

YT (Big G's vid-sharing platform) is privating old vids that you "unlist" if you don't opt out https://blog.youtube/news-and-events/update-youtube-unlisted-links/
I now hold an IA account. Going to start contributing random stuff I find.
I'm not totally unfamiliar with writing with constraints; I actually did two Q&As on Snoo's domain in which all A's had a singular first glyph:

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
