If you're going to try out Mastodon do a bit of research on which instance to choose. It's like picking which neighbourhood you want to live in.

anyway sorry i get a bit annoyed at that kind of mentality.

new people: just remember to use cw-ings liberally. that's all I care about, it's definitely 100% the best feature of this site.

If you're not sure, cw it. And even if you are sure, probably still cw it. There's no downside to it.

Being a developer isn't always fun.

Developing an ActivityPub project as a hobby for one of the most technological and privacy conscience user bases on the internet can be challenging. Constructive criticism is always appreciated but remember that developers are people too.

NEW USERS! Feel like mastodon.social is too busy? You can sign up on another instance and still communicate freely with everyone here and elsewhere.

instances.noct.zone/ is a good curated list of instances with short summaries of what they're all about, instances.social/ has a "wizard" to help you pick a place from a nice big list of options.

A lot of smaller instances have closed registrations to prevent spam, but users there may be able to send invites if you have friends!

If someone is being nasty on Mastodon, you don’t have to try to get justice from drawing attention to their nastiness and hoping enough people will be outraged enough to block and report them so that something happens.

Report them. Their moderator will actually see your actual report and will actually do something about it. I know it’s weird to think that could do something, but it does here.

My least favorite part about new folks logging in is the DM panic.

“Oh no, my DMs are unencrypted and can be read by the instance moderators and admins.”

“... just like every other social platform you’ve ever used, plus most email platforms.”

“Well, yeah, but on those other platforms the admins are a team of underpaid entry level employees at a faceless company, not a single person or small group of individuals that’s I can get to know”

“...right.”

The "CW" and "sensitive image" features on Mastodon are more profound than they look. It means we don't have to slowly drift into being Mad Online 24/7 because we have the power to choose when and how we engage with highly emotionally charged topics.

new users: please remember there is an existing friendly culture here and that it will take time to get used to it

mastodon the software is similar to twitter, but mastodon the community is very, very different

please respect that, leave your outrage at the door, and try to be friendly - we're willing to help you learn, but you have to be willing to learn

Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.

If you're mad about something? Use a content warning.

If you want to write a long post? Use a content warning.

Don't share screenshots of toots that make you mad, and don't follow people that make you mad.

You've left the swirling fire vortex of rage birdsite created to keep investors and advertisers happy. Live free! Live well 👍
