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. :)
What the heck with these privacy settings? https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/99766026886377926
Local vs. federated timelines? https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/99766033723472311
How to find and interact with toots that haven't reached your instance yet: https://dev.glitch.social/@cassolotl/99766038792455458
@switter This might be a handy thing to boost to new folks? I think you have already boosted an older version of this but a LOT of people have joined since then.
Feel free to copy and paste so you can pin it, but watch out for the @crossposter tag - that won't copy and paste properly so you have to amend it manually!
Also congrats on your thousands of members! :D
Looks like IFTTT could be used to crosspost, and other things.
@Mkoxbg Well, yeah, but it's way less good and more complicated than the crossposter I listed!
BE WARNED this instance will absolutely be unstable at times. It will 10000% be used for experimenting with settings and tweaks to Mastodon. So the place may experience outages, not federate reliably with the rest of the world, have posts go missing, or other technical faults. As such it's meant to be a chill, maybe kinda playful place. FOR BREAKING THE SOFTWARE. Time to see what we can do with this thing! Time to ˥∀IƆOS HƆ⊥I˥⅁
This instance also has domain level blocks on numerous others, using the block list found here .
followbots from other instances will be blocked. please report them
the privacy stuff in the 'terms' isn't what it should be, but no time to change it yet. this instance's data will not be sold or traded or whatever.
