I just published “The great Mastadon migration of 2018” https://medium.com/@jukesie/the-great-mastadon-migration-of-2018-495fe79e80c5 (you lot are already migrated but...)
@frankieroberto the default streams, the process for following people, the fact that there can be multiple jukesie accounts on different instances, the slightly sanctimonious tone of some of it ;)
No show stoppers.
@jukesie yeah, following people not on your instance is a bit cumbersome. Most of the apps force you into web views to see someone’s full profile.
@betandr so far...as someone else said elsewhere - the water is clear now but sooner or later people will start pissing in the pool.
@jukesie At least, with Mastodon, you can still find a server which doesn't allow that sort of stuff. Even though it's global, you can keep in a protective environment which avoids that sort of thing. The larger servers don't so much. I'm really tempted to run my own!
See I'm slightly twitchy about some of that - while better than the Nazi web I'm not keen on the sanctimonious web either which I fear some of it will become 🤔
@jukesie I prefer to think of it as the protective web. There are many groups who are abused online and Mastodon gives people some control, rather than relying on admins.
@robchamberspfc I hid them straight away - basically 'local' is *all* the public messages on this instance of Mastodon - federated is multiple instances...f**k that :) Just hide..
@jukesie ahh, you using an app? Which one you go for?
Using the website at the mo so don't think I have option to hide.
@jukesie do we get everyone’s messages on here or is there a follow button?
(I’ve a big decline in availabile cognitive capacity at the moment so need some help. It’s medical.)
@jukesie super. Do we have to see every public message? I only want to see messages from people I follow.
@jukesie Though came across this earlier (via @zuz ), and now I'm even more confused https://twitter.com/adrienneleigh/status/1030213888850030592
