E-vole-ution

This is basically a shiny new version of malevole, a weird random-nonsense site launched way back in 2002.

Unless indicated otherwise, everything created for this site is © 2002–2022 by Matt Round. If you have an interesting/worthy reason to reuse something then do ask, but please don’t sulk if the answer’s no.

When submitting content (e.g. for Vmail) users give us permission to use their stuff, but in a non-exclusive way (so they still own it).

Privacy

There’s no intrusive tracking or sneaky third-party data sharing. Our analytics service sets no cookies and minimal data is stored (full data policy), and any ‘goals’ we measure are only aggregated counts.

The CDN sets no cookies and only monitors traffic for security/reliabity purposes. The web server has temporary log files that record uncached requests.

Embedded YouTube videos either use cookie-free ‘privacy-enhanced’ mode or have an opt-in button.

When users submit content via a form, their IP addresses are used to detect spam/abuse.

Vmail is handled by our own self-hosted newsletter system. No special open/click tracking is added to emails, and images are hosted on this site.

AI Content Policy

AI tools are an integral part of some concepts (The Kubrick Times, GANksy, This MP Does Not Exist). We’ve also experimented with using AI to replace our clumsy photoshopping in Imaginary Friends Reunited, and as a writing aid.

We occasionally commission creative work (illustration, music, voice acting) to bring a project to life with a specific person’s unique talent and unexpected ideas; AI won’t replace that.
