Hello. I never actually done this on a social platform before, but I felt it wasn’t a bad idea on a new one. I’m into and more. I’m not sure how I’ll use this platform, but if those seem to be things you’re into, feel free to follow. I’ll more than likely follow back. I’ll do my best to use the content warning when appropriate.

Here’s a random thought: how important is the invention of the replicator in the universe? It’s been on my mind and I’m wondering if it’s one of the primary reasons for continued peace in the federation. I know they slightly tackle the idea of the power of the replicator in Voyager, but I’m definitely curious other fans thoughts.

As we enter the biggest game in a long while for the Spurs, all I ask as a fan is to put it all on pitch. !!!

Politics 

Stray political thought (and for sure out of the realm of reality). I wonder what people would think Collins or Murkowski were the ones to help overturn the filibuster in the US senate. Obviously won’t happen, but it would be interesting based on a horrible potential scotus decision.

Massive win for Spurs, massive win for Everton. All we need is a West Ham win and it’ll be a great day. Still, Football (soccer) is the greatest game in the world for moments like this .

Time for the first football (soccer) related post of the feed. It’s a big game for the PL team I follow, so here’s hoping for a win! !

Spoiler for Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe 

Hope that’s the best way to flag this, but I’m really enjoying the new edition. It’s still making great commentaries on game development, gaming culture, and surprisingly how negative reviews and comments do sort of eat at you.

I don’t think ill need a content warning for this one, but if your in , do remember to early vote or vote on May 7th. There are some statewide changes to vote on and a few local to Austin and potentially in your area. I’ve done my civic duty and I encourage you to do yours.

Football 

Man Liverpool Fc is on another level .

Yes there is the occasional football (soccer) posts on this stream so hope you all don’t mind Hotspurs related posts.

Something to consider when posting hashtags:

For people using screen readers, they know when to separate words either by spaces, or uppercase letters. 'mastoart' will try to be pronounced as one word, whereas 'MastoArt' will be pronounced as 'Masto Art'. It just makes life a little bit easier for those who rely on screen readers to interact with the fediverse :bear_hugs:

I never got all the latest features like polls, but I didn’t care. I liked the way it was and it made for a better consumption for me. I now get that because of that fact, it’s way easier for me to switch up things. This is just another data stream in the end and a similar experience as the Twitter data stream. It will take time to find the people and tags to follow, but that’s fine. Thankfully, this isn’t the only way I communicate with friends and the communities I’m part of.

It’s interesting as I’m using a new platform I realize how I view social networks, especially Twitter, way different that most around me and I think I know why: since the start, I’ve always used 3rd party apps. The only time I ever had the official app installed was when it was required by iOS for better twitter integration. All of those apps have limited or removed ads, kept the timeline in order, and never sent me recommend posts. For me, Twitter was a data stream.

I can say one thing different on this platform from my other social platforms is that I’m kicking into its Patreon.

The thing is, private ownership has failings as well along with board ownership. If I’m honest, I’d rather something like Twitter to be a public utility or controlled by no one, but that might be impossible and definitely not moderated.

I do get the negatives to this platform with having one admin for an instance and having that individual be able to limit/moderate things. There are pluses/minus to every platform implementation, even open source decentralized ones.

I’m still sort of feeling this whole thing out, but eventually I’ll post to the introduce hashtag in a more formal post. That said, I did find an iOS client I like, but will check out the official later tonight.

So I haven't shared this anywhere else, so I might as well post it here. I'm going to keep my header banner blank as I'm personally learning how to properly do pixel art. When I'm finally making backgrounds, I'll made my header a different image.
