Introduction post Show more
Hello! I'm Alexis! You can also call me Siphonay.
I'm a 21 years old demi-guy from Rennes, France and I'm the admin of this instance, https://donphan.social! As it is a Pokémon-themed instance, that's what I'm mostly talking about here!
I've been a Pokémon fan since I first ever touched my sister's Pokémon Red cartridge when I was just a kid. I never missed a single game to this day! My favorite Pokémon are Munchlax and Snorlax . My favorite games of the series are Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire!
Other than running this instance and playing Pokémon, I currently work as an IT support technician. I have a more general and personal account over at @Siphonay, where I post more often. Feel free to follow me over there as well!
Have a nice day!

I'm really warning up to Drawfee, especially Drawing Pokemon From Memory, because one of the artists, Julia, is frequently not familiar with Pokemon at all.
In the latest video, extra challenge is to use a basic paint program for one drawing, no erasing for second, and mouse only for third. https://youtu.be/6Qg6FHMsAPI
Attached (hidden) is her interpretations of Incineroar, Lucario, and Greninja.
Hey donphan.social newcomers. I don't want to restrict how talkative one can be here even if you full up the local timeline. But spamming the same letter or repeating the same stuff over and over like it's some twitch chat is taking advantage of this. Please stop and be considerate.
If you want to keep spamposting set your post privacy to unlisted or private so it doesn't appear in the public timelines. If you don't know how to do this, check this out: https://donphan.social/@Siphonay/101224151400552406
Thread for newcomers: support your admins! Show more
Nearly all instances are not maintained by companies or corporations, but by individuals who maintain and moderate them with their free time and their own financial means.
If you like the instance you're on, the community you're part of, and have the means to do so, don't hesitate to ask your admin if there is a way you can donate! Of course, it is never required, but it is always a really appreciated thing.

Thread for newcomers: Image descriptions Show more
Image descriptions are exactly what their name say. Their main purpose is to describe the contents of an image for people who can't view images in their browsers, or are visually impaired or blind and use a screen narrator.
You can add them to every image you post by hovering over it and clicking on the typing field.
It takes some time do to that everytime you upload an image, but it really helps people who can't see images otherwise.
If the image is too complex, focus on describing the main focal point or what you want to show, if either these options are applicable.
If you can't for any reason add a description to an image you upload, don't beat yourself up about it. But try to pick up the habit!
