The Joke: welcome to Mastodon, here's your fursuit and your copy of Das Kapital
Reality: welcome to Mastodon, here's your six alt fursonas, a copy of the Anarchist's Cookbook, an eight-week course on the programming language of your choice, a tarot deck, some brand spanking new hormones, and a complex geometric sigil you should memorize that will turn into a neural counter-virus so that when the Singularity finally hits we can make sure The Straights don't claim it for themselves
@irisjaycomics new Destroyer is good but old weird Destroyer is like constant brain soundtrack material for me. Streethawk: A Seduction is pprrrooobably one of the most perfect indie records ever made??? Just saying. Fight me
@irisjaycomics they took down Thief, Your Blues, Notorious Lightning and Trouble in Dreams too. GUESS I GOTTA HUNT THESE FUCKERS DOWN IN HARD COPY NOW
#Welcome new users I'm so glad you're here that's great! If you joined mastodon.social like, that's fine and stuff BUT you should know that that's just ONE server running Mastodon. You could also join one of thousands of other options. A server with lots of people with shared interests creates a stronger sense of community and public timelines that self-curates to stuff people you like also like; on your server or others
A list of servers can be found at instances.social
Regarding that last boost, local custom is to CW things like politics, violence, stressful current events, etc. so that people can choose to engage with this content if they want to and avoid it if they want or need that space.
You do you, but remember that many folks are doing their best to curate a safer space for themselves (me included!) and we do not need the pressure of other social media sites to Always Be Visibly Enraged.
please remember to make heavy use of CWs
they are there because they are useful to reduce harm for folks
instead of being forced to read a post in order to determine if they want to interact with its contents or not (which is not a choice), you can know what the post is about and choose whether it's worth engaging that or not
