Going to attempt to move to mastodon.nz because a) mastodon.social is massive and it feels more in the spirit of things to be somewhere smaller, and b) out of all the smaller places to be, choosing something based on my interests does not align with the butterfly nature of my interests; going by geography works better.
Let's see how this goes....
Hey wait, copy-pasting a laserkiwi gave me laserkiwi code, but laserkiwi code doesn't give me laserkiwi. What is this spite?!
I feel like #FediTips should also include that there is an option in your profile to automatically expand Content Warnings. One of my hesitations with the "Err on the side of CW" ethos was that I didn't like that I couldn't read most posts without clicking on them, which is not a great user experience. But, if you know you don't have particular content you emotionally need to avoid, that's a good option and makes it that much easier to be thoughtful to those who do.
(Also how the main flaw in the programme is he does a single loop jump instead of a triple, these things happen, but then after taking his bow he does a single loop on his way off the ice in commentary on it while still being happy at his overall performance, I love that.)
Currently obsessing over the first 15 seconds of this kid's free skate programme in particular. https://youtu.be/utLriA_I4pM?t=5714
The rest of the choreography is also beautiful and unique but that 15 seconds is a really special beginning, I'm rewatching each move and transition at quarter speed over and over to drink it in.
Kia ora #NZtwits - I'm, like, ambivalently social so don't know if I really want to do an intro yet here it is!
I'm Pākehā descended from UK, born in Pōneke, live in Ōtautahi, work in librarianship, write science-fiction and fantasy but am way behind in submitting to markets, and butterfly between various other hobbies: currently infatuated with figure skating. Love learning/using other languages, including #TeReo, kōrero mai.
New folks might be wondering about the CW option. It's pretty simple - it lets you add a content warning onto your toot, but also obscures the content so you have to click on it to see the content. People tend to use them fairly liberally here. I don't post anything I think is objectionable, but some people are sensitive to certain topics, and it is just polite (and respectful) to give them fair warning. Nice when browsing the local or federated timelines, where you could see anything! #NZTwits
