You see where there was a little "SHOW MORE" button just there that you pressed to see the rest of this? That's a content warning (or CW)
You use those whenever you want to make a toot (stop giggling at the back, we know, that's what it's called, get over it) that mentions something that other people might not want to see
Stuff like politics (it's exhausting), drugs, NSFW stuff, health discussions, selfies, and so on
That's a non-exhaustive list, just be considerate
one more meta note about subtooting Show more
if someone's doing something that irritates you, either tell them directly, or ask someone to tell them for you (or report it, if it's against rules), or just... mute and block and move on?
subtooting creates this awful passive-aggressive atmosphere, and while it feels good, it's really, really bad for the environment, and people's well being.
One of the best little things about Mastodon is that we’re all in a Federation now so we get like comm badges and colored shirts and shore leave and Holodeck time and earl gray tea.
thread on why people on mastodon put content warnings on politics Show more
okay so, in my early days on mastodon, I didnt understand why people were expected to put content warnings on politics
to me it seemed like just another example of a community trying to stay together while excusing people for views that completely exclude the communities most marginalized members, and an attempt to silence those members
as i stayed on mastodon, however, i realized that this, just wasnt the case

Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
Also looking for more lists. 😃
The prototype of Trunk, a mass-follow web application for Mastodon: https://communitywiki.org/trunk
I'm trying to use @jjatria's Mastodon::Client in the background but that doesn't work yet, so you can't actually mass-follow anybody. But the idea's already there. Here's how it would work: I'd ask "are you posting about infosec and want to get listed by Trunk at URL?" People reply, I look at at the accounts, and if reasonable I add them to the list. Newbies can then instantly get relevant followings.
Hab gestern einige Blogs von meiner Leseliste entfernt, weil sie entweder schon seit über nem Jahr inaktiv oder komplett entfernt sind 🙁 Schade... Habt ihr neue Lese-Empfehlungen für mich? Gern auch eure eigenen Blogs oder Blogrolls!
Thematisch interessiert mich selbermachen / DIY, Rollenspiel, nerdiges, technisches/Internetkram. Kann auch auf Englisch sein.
Be proud of who you are.
It took a long time to be proud of who I am, but I am now. I'm not perfect and I'm not proud of my flaws but I am proud of myself as a person.
Even if everyone else thinks you're weird, or strange, or "doing it for attention", or mentally ill, you shouldn't give a shit about what they think. They're just people trying to tell you how to live your life and how you're supposed to be. Fuck that.

That sounds like a really good idea to me, would be nice if more companies cared and thought about this...
Moin, irgendwie hab ich nicht gut geschlafen... -.- Aber immerhin ist Freitag und das Wetter hat sich auch deutlich abgekühlt.
In the web UI of Mastodon, you enter the address of the thing you're trying to follow in the search box, and you will get a result with an option to follow.
And I must say, that's pretty friggin cool. 😮 Thank-you Mastodon, ActivityPub, and write.as!
I was at a beach today and swam in the sea. 🌊 ⛱️ so happy I did this 😊
