For newer people complaining about this or that not working/being too slow:

The admin pays for the privilege of hosting your account, for the server, for the bandwidth, in addition to donating their time to run it. There is no giant corporation behind the scenes making a profit off of your activity here.

Additionally there has been a mass sign-up event that no one expected or prepared for.

Perhaps have a little patience & grace and/or throw some funds in @stux direction to help manage it all.

This took way too long. Yeeesh

If you are in the field of crisis or emergency management the risk for burnout is extremely high right now. Never fear getting professional help.

Use your employer benefits if you have them. Psychology and counseling for mental health is normal.

@leahdriel Recently learned that of all Earth's known mad extinction events (five near total, many many lesser), only one was related to an asteroid.

Guess how many were due to climate change, typically due to volcanism.

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g.

That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.

Lifting mask big deal they said. BC Ferries to Haida Qwaii is critical infrastructure. The BC government needs to do better.

If you are non-white, disabled, and/or LGBTQ2+ and involved in the fields of disaster risk reduction and/or crisis and emergency management I'd love to connect with you.

Organizational justice is lacking in disaster management and is dominated by colonial ways and other straight white men like me. I'm always looking for diverse opinions and information.
