Oh my goodness! 😮

Hello to all you new people on here! 👋

FediFollows (that's me) recommends accounts to follow on Mastodon and the Fediverse, you can see all the recommendations so far organised by category at:

mastodon.online/@FediFollows/1

This is just a teeny tiny fraction of the millions of accounts on here, FediFollows' aim is just to give some good starting points.

Follow me if you want to see the latest recommended follows as they are added to the list.

@FediFollows how do I automatically follow the accounts that you have curated?

@FediFollows Like, you seem to be doing an amazing job with curation. I trust you, and don't want to click through all the accounts in your lists.

Let's say you have curated a list of 3d graphics acocunts. I want to follow them all easily with one click.

How do I do it?

@enjoyingthewind

Short answer is you can't, sorry 😔

Longer answer is I really don't want to be in a position where whatever I post is automatically followed by people.

It would be way too easy for me to misuse that situation, and even if I didn't, it would be normalising a practice that someone would sooner or later misuse.

Trunk (communitywiki.org/trunk) used to have a somewhat similar batch-following feature, but they removed it. I don't know what their reasons for removal were.

@enjoyingthewind

Yeah, if you're comfortable working with scripts go for it 👍
