I have to say: APRIL FOOLS!
Around midnight I posted a journal explaining that inkbunny had removed my gallery because I attempted to upload human characters. I have inadvertantly posted human drawings in the past and inkbunny simply sets the pics to "hidden." The genious in this year's April Fool's joke I posted was that I paired a highly believable story with an inkbunny trick allowing me to set all my pictures temporarily to "hidden" as if they had been deleted. Describing the picture as containing characters which are borderline non-human (Marceline and the Ice King) only strengthened the believability of the story because it all made sense. I played off of the inkbunny policy of no human characters, and performed an illusion which actually did happen to me on FA for a different reason. Everything went better than expected and I tricked far more people than anticipated. Remember that I am 3pac; by virtue of the humor in my pics you should have suspected such trickery. However, I do thoroughly appreciate the outflow of support I received after my posting. I know I have fans and I hate to trick my watchers like this, but I also hate to paint a bad image of the inkbunny staff since they have always been more respectful than the FA staff ever was. For this I apologize to the staff, but I had to do it for the lulz.
A reminder of April Fools last year: I pretended to quit drawing because of receiving overwhelming negative feedback on Paheal and FA. Interestingly, the pic I posted, which was a collage of sorts of quotes from actual negative feedback I have received, was set to "hidden" by the inkbunny mods. They sent me a note saying that pictures must contain original work and not simply screenshots. I replied that it was only an April Fool's joke and that I would be deleting the pic the next day. They actually said "oh, okay, no problem, we'll unlock the pic so it can stay up for the day, but then we ask you to delete it or set it to hidden." So keep in mind the staff here is actually really good.
As a means of repentance, I'm setting 2 of my Friends Only pics to public.
