    Omg @Whom you were absolutely right, this IS a thing I'd love. Such a nice opportunity to be dorky, cute, and creative. The native Tildes experience just doesn't allow for this sort of off-the-cuff non-serious expression, and I get why! But the % of assholes here is a lot smaller than the internet at large, so letting people type freely in this confined space has made some dang wholesome results!

    Y'all are a buncha cuties.

    I dunno if this is cheating, and I'm not sure I should share this info for fear it falls into malicious hands, but anyway, I found you can paste.

    If you open up a javascript console and paste:

    Permissions.can_paste = function() {return true;};
    

    you'll then be able to paste text/ascii art from your clipboard.

    I've been using this to compose ascii art in notepad, then transfer it to the YWoT canvas. So far I've done a tildes start button in the lower left (shoutout to /r/place), as well as a sorta graffiti style tildes logo under Gen. Ackbar.

    Please do not use this power for evil.

    What am I looking at here? I have no context for this. It just looks like random gibberish to me.

        So it's like that "place" thing Reddit did a few years ago, but with letters instead of colours. Thanks for the explanation. cc: @json

      It's an infinite grid of cells to which anyone can type a letter, overwriting whatever is in the cell. So it allows for a sort of multiplayer ascii graffiti.

    Neat. Works horribly in mobile though, since the keyboard has to pop up every time you touch the canvas, making movement hard. Also the 'builds' y'all are making are pretty cool.
