an update for the curious concerning my hacked instagram art account
it was restored!!!!
they managed to delete over a thousand of my posts, but instagram might be able to restore them so fingers crossed!
i also did all of the extra verification options in the security tab in settings, and i suggest you do the same!
i can always add posts, i save everything on an external hard drive that's not a problem, the main thing i was worried about was rebuilding my reputation and following, so needless to say i'm extremely happy and thankful this morning.
such relief and gratitude y'all have no idea, total tenderoni over here.
