Hi there! I am Sinclair-Speccy, the owner of the r/OStan subreddit and the person who had the desire for change. After being at two other OS-tan places I decided to take a step forward and continue what one server tried: To promote new ideas and not be restrained to a restrictive canon. The second server attempted these same goals but fell too early, yet I had the desire to follow the same steps when it was pointed out to me the flaws of the currently existing OS-tan canon at another place. My fanon is called The Mainframe
Hopefully whoever is reading this can help me achieve what the second place attempted and this time it will be successful and not fall into the ground so early.
As for myself, I am an OS-tan fan (why would I be here if I wasn't) and an avid retro tech fan. Online I am known as Sinclair-Speccy, a combination of the ZX Spectrum and the popular nickname for the ZX Spectrum. People also use Speccy, Sinclair and Alphonse online for me. My last name, country and other personal information aren't important to post here.
I have a penchant for vintage technology like mainframes (IBM 704, CDC 6500, Whirlwind I, etc) and microcomputers (Mark-8, MK14, etc). In terms of hardware and setup I own, my main computer is a Windows 10 Lenovo machine. Not the most powerful machine but it gets the job done at times.
I am on many places of the internet but here are a few if you want to friend me:
I also have a website which is here: https://sinclair-speccy.github.io/The-Mainframe/
Why do your wiki pages have AI-generated "art"?
While the usage of AI art isn't the best with big businesses replacing writers and artists with AI because they don't want to pay for art or writing and such, I feel it is good to use it for inspiration.
They're idea blenders, not artists or writers. They are for putting ideas into & making smoothies. The main page for my section on the wiki has a disclaimer explaining this, saying that I lack decent art skills so some pages may use AI-generated "art" to fill in the missing pictures. These images are an idea of how a character could or might look. Since it is done by an AI, there are chances that it will lack important minor details a character may have. Using the AI "art" is fine if you are drawing them, but always refer to a character's description on their page!
I tend to be more of a visual person so the stuff that is generated helps me with seeing how a character should look. Since it is trained on data, sometimes the stuff generated may give you a cool-looking outfit that you like that you can use in your actual art if you are an artist. This is what I like despite the data not being collected with proper consent.
