UK passport question (trans) 

in the renewal form there's two separate entries i'm confused with. I have set "gender" to Male since that hansn't been sorted with a GP yet, but there is also "title". Would it be okay to mark gender as Male but still use "Miss" as my title?

The final photo from the machine is even comparable to my old passport photo from 10 years ago! I also used a photo booth for that photo and everything was fine, the only difference is I did not use the online application form.

I'm guessing it's because of how the cropping works in post, but if that's the case wouldn't everyone who uses the passport photo machines always have the same issue? it feels like a bit of a money scam if that's the case.

UK passport question 

anyone else had this issue with the online application form? The photo was taken from one of those high-street photo booths and uploaded directly to the form online. The machine said there was nothing wrong. I've contacted the company to request a refund but in the meantime is there anything I can do to make sure I have a correct photo? It's not like the photo booths are going to do any better a job since it'll just have the same result every time.

I have a new photo ready, a deed poll showing the name change, and a bank statement.

I'm currently trying to get my passport sorted out since it is due for renewal (my current deadname passport expires in June)

I'm just wondering, can I go through the regular renewal process but enter a new name? or do I need to apply for a new passport.

I've also noticed a "premium" passport renewal service, which costs double the amount of money but promises for the passport to be renewed sooner, is that worth the money? (I do not have this money currently.)

Last month I took part in the demoscene holiday card exchange! As part of the exchange I crafted and sent out 10 Pharmageddon themed Christmas cards, each including a unique message and printed sticker "prescription" for each of my assigned demosceners.

I had a lot of fun making these cards and I hope everyone who received one enjoyed it!

I have arrived back to England safely from Germany! Thank you everyone who sent me gifts over the Christmas period while I was away, specially those who took part in the Demoscene holiday card exchange and everyone who sent gifts from my Amazon wishlist!

I also FINALLY HAVE A LARGE RACCOON!! :chitterpets:

I love you all

I was introduced to 2023 by watching a Bernd das Brot parody of 'Dinner for One'

also as a PSA for people who haven't been to libraries in a while:

- libraries offer comfy silent tables and sofas for free, with free Internet and charging ports and free toilets, in the middle of the city where everything else costs.
- most library cards will give you access to some gatekept online resources, like the OED, and "borrowing" ebooks
- libraries also have selections of movies, music, console games etc. to borrow home or enjoy on spot. those classic movies that are hard to find in torrents can be found here
- comic book selections in libraries are pretty great
- language learning books and dictionaries for free
- if the thing you want is not in the library, you can request them to loan from another library (usually for a fee)
- you can also suggest additions to the collection
- boardgames are available, also many other novelties like VR etc. depending on where you live (one around me has an escape room)
- those fantasy beings who reside in the libraries and seemingly merge with the wallpapers and book smell, they're not just there to control which books you're loaning. they also can help you find stuff. they're very good at finding resources for a thing you want to know about, super nice talking to you, and invariably cool as heck
