Our volunteer, Cyber, has put together a neat little guide to help new and old users navigate the platform and foster the community. Check it out!
With this guide, we hope that InkBlot users have an easier time figuring out how to be active and engaging. But we know you can’t do it all on your own so we’ve got some plans in store for next month. Stay tuned~!
