Due to popular demand, and the ever-increasing net to explain Mastodon to newbies as every instance is being bombarded with new users...
I've gone ahead and create a video tutorial that should help folks get to grips with all of this platform's particulars:
Intro to Mastodon 101
@tahajin I liked it a lot, though
@lucariwhoa (Exasperated Gay Black Noises) ;~;
@tahajin I like it. It's calm, and I was able to understand pretty well despite how I have a hard time making out sounds, in particular speech.
@Nomaxice Aw, jeez, thanks! I tried my damnedest to make sure I was enunciating everything else despite the uh...handful of speech impediments I operate through!
@tahajin I liked your voice! :)
The video was very informative and well produced!
Every now and then I felt the audio levels/mixing made it a bit difficult to follow, at least for me - but other than that it was absolutely excellent!
@DareLooks Not surprised, this is my first time using my voice in a video since...what, like early high school - so about eight years or so? My dialogue mixing is ROUGH.
But I'm glad most of the important stuff came through!
@tahajin Don't be shy about your voice! Nothing odd about it. Wouldn't have thought twice about it if you didn't mention it.
@Gargron Yeaaaah, but I N S E C U R I T I E S. ;~;
@0xKruzr I wouldn't know off the top of my head but, theoretically, that would just operated like a private instance, which already exists!
@seb_ly Shoot, that's awesome to hear!! Thank you so, so much!
@tahajin This was so well done. Thank so much for putting this together hun.
@Therian No problem at all! Though it did wallop my weekend...! I’m so bloody tiiired. ;~;
I was thinking about boosting this on bird site but everyone with a similar following to me has been auto-modded into oblivion for saying TERFs can suck it, so, y’know.
@tahajin good video. sure to get a lot of hits in the coming days.
@tahajin This is dope!
@vey YOU’RE DOPE.
Nah but seriously, thank you~.
@jeroenpraat No problem and uh, I’d rather keep it under my account, if at all possible!
Thanks! Of course, but if you want to keep it under your name, you should upload it yourself somewhere on PeerTube.
@tahajin Hi, did you already upload your video somewhere on Peertube?
@jeroenpraat Nnnot yet, no. Sorry, is there something wrong with it being on YouTube?
@tahajin Yes, because I want to embed it on our wiki, and we don't embed content from proprietary sites.
