@sonniesedge I might just keep thins one around though to follow random things.
Okay, I think I'm going to use @sonniesedge in preference to this one. If you're following me on here, please join!
PSA: if you see a remote toot and think "wow that is an amazing toot, why does it have 0 favs/boosts/replies"? It probably doesn't. It's just that nobody from this instance follows someone who fav'ed/boosted/replied to it.
One thing I found useful is to just eagerly follow people you see in the Federated timeline saying stuff you like. You can always unfollow/block later.
The Masto experience gets fleshed out the more you use an instance. Keep in mind toot.cafe is 4 days old. 😄

A collection of things I made for people new to #Mastodon, based on questions I commonly see in the public timelines during influxes of new folks. :)

Hello, new #Mastodon users! If you think that the standard, tweetdeck-like web UI is too cluttered, and you're looking for a Desktop app, check out https://github.com/h3poteto/whalebird-desktop https://email@example.com/i-have-developed-a-mastodon-client-for-mac-windows-and-linux-c76b4b794e16
The biggest issue I have right now with the Mastodon:
- How to choose an instance. I've just gone for the default one, but is that wise? How does that impact things?
- Getting used to the interface. The whole concept of the public and federated timelines needs some getting used to.
- Posting publicly or just to followers (ala Twitter). I have no idea of the protocol on that (bugger it, just posting this one publicly)
