Searching on Mastodon is hashtag only - it would be helpful for new users looking to find active people to follow if we all toot hashtags for our interests from time to time.

If you know any trans, intersex, genderqueer, or otherwise full-of-genders folks who have been affected by the California wine country fires, please direct them to the Trans Disaster Relief Fund - found here: http://tdrfund.us

Time for another #introduction!
I teach philosophy at a university in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I am also passionate about open education, open access publishing, open data, open science...etc etc. And I have two cats and a son who is the biggest fan of cats I've ever known.
I also draw sometimes, pretty badly, but I share here anyway because I love seeing others share and maybe sometimes what I share will be enjoyed too!
Local timeline and notifications scroll fine. It's just the home timeline that hangs and doesn't go further. Strange.
Hmmm...my home timeline isn’t scrolling past a certain point not very far down. Same on both mobile web (iOS) and Amaroq. Wondering if it’s a broader issue?

I on vaguely posted about this prior, but, I haven't developed #tusky since august. I've been doing a game project and am going to be doing outside work soon and I don't see myself coming back to it.

I’ve only done two inktober drawings so far but hey that’s better than zero and there are more days in the month!🖋
