The only animal pictures I really care about feature hedgehogs

I wrote about the games I liked this year. I tried to be earnest but tbh games are bad and I only kinda like writing about them at this point so...

Either way! Please take a look and tell me what you liked this year too!

Oh, one more important note: we do not allow the impersonation of real people on Mastodon.social. This includes "kin". We do take this seriously and will disable any accounts we find violating this rule.

i put together a ton of one-image beginner-friendly drawing tutorials that folks here might find helpful, including this one! megathread below 👇

hey new users, here's the word we use for "lol" on mastodon: Show more

To any kids out there who just failed some finals for whatever reason — maybe you’re working to pay bills or you joined too many extracurricular clubs — don’t give up. You are not your test scores. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. You’ll do all right, just enjoy your winter break. Almost there.

For anyone who is uncomfortable with the multi-column layout of default Mastodon, check out the webapp pinafore.social - it's single-column with tabs.

do any fediverse admins know what would happen if i wiped my instance and started over? i assume that might break a ton of shit

okay so. last time I posted any sort of writing, fanfiction.net was the Hot Shit™️​. I've heard about AO3? Are there any other places to post Stuff y'all can suggest? Here, even? tmi tuesday under the cut Show more

Anybody have DLC predictions? I'm interested in your ideas whether they're realistic or absolute fantasy

right what i was gonna say was this:

it's been brought to my attention that some apps don't show the table in your bio so don't put your pronouns there maybe!

Inflating my follower count by following myself

Moving over from @ishiku for a more dedicated instance, I'll be finishing the move later today when I get home. Expect a lot of talk about #anime #manga and complaints about being bad at video games. #introductions

For new people:
Welcome!
The fediverse has been around for around a decade now, and it's not going to "die" any time soon.
Other centralized social media encourages bad habits to keep engagement, but we're not about that here. It takes time to shake those bad habits, but do your best and you'll get used to it. Thanks to the public timelines, everyone has an audience right away here, so nobody worries about follower count/ratio. We're here to have a good time, not to get "clout".

As a note to our new tumblr friends, the fediverse is a primarily volunteer-run thing with the admins paying for all the server costs out of their own pockets

If you'd like to chip in towards keeping the fediverse running then most admins have patreon or kofi links somewhere that you can throw a couple of bucks at from time to time

I had my biggest following on tunglr but I take commissions regardless where I'm contacted.

Check out the general price sheet, hit me up ^^

I think most of the accounts I follow are on .art, but I don't think that would be a great instance for me

What's the fedverse? It's a network of (mostly, hopefully) compatible sites (not all of which run on the Mastodon software). Guillotines.mastodon.host and Mastodon.social are different websites with different admins using the same software. Pleroma is different but compatible software, so we can "federate" with them.

That's why usernames are so long. It's like email. The first half of a username is the, uh, username, and the second is the website. Just like "username@gmail.com."
