Hey #fedaverse, could people please start putting descriptions on images for people with visual imparements? It doesn't have to be long, just a few basic details to get the point of the image across. Thank you. To those that do, you're doing us a massive favor. Please continue to do so, and thank you.

@b_cavello @bluepupboi if you’re a member of an oppressed class simply posting about the mundane events of your day is considered politics by many, so really I don’t like the idea of a politics CW

@b_cavello @bluepupboi yeah, i mean i am 100% opposed to upsetting people needlessly, and i also wonder if CWs are the best way to do that

@tibius @bluepupboi Honestly, I can relate. I think more clarity with filters and community tagging could allow folks to handle some of that based on their unique community needs even if your usual follower list is totally chill with it.

@saper @jond GNU Social does rewrite long links, but it has no tracking built in. In fact, it tries to dereference shorturls and tracking links to re-point to the eventual destination.

Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! πŸ˜„)

I removed my racing snail’s shell in an effort to save weight & get him to move faster.

It didn’t work, if anything, he became even more sluggish.
