solidarity toot for all other instance admins and mods this week

listen, i'm glad everyone is here/back but platform metacommentary alone won't be enough to make this stick. you need to start posting inane nonsense

what did you eat today. did you see any cool bugs


I think it’s also worth mentioning that Mastodon now has a mechanism to move your entire account between instances.

This should help a ton with deciding where to start, since it matters much less now. Just start, move if you ever need to.


Dear New Followers: over the next few days I will boost each and every one of your #introduction posts, if you do post them and pin them to your profile.

Introduction posts are important on fedi. Please also consider setting your profile pics!

This is my way of supporting good practices on one hand, and giving some much-needed visibility to new fedifriends who are just now joining.

If you're a server admin and you're accepting new users, drop a link under this toot > :D (Lots of people signing up on .art to follow their favourite artists, but I don't think they realise they don't have to live on .art for that :) )

Check in with yourself a few times each day and take a moment to process your thoughts and emotions. Don’t let them build up.

It's official. Biden and Harris just need to be sworn in on the 20th.

The US Congress just certified the election results. (This is an incredibly boring procedure to watch.)

Help is out there. Ask for it if you need it.
