For mastodon.social users:

Dogpiling and harassment are off-limits no matter how justified you think you are. The rules are for everyone.

Strongly considering adding screenshot-dunking to the code of conduct as well. We don't need that culture here.

Meta take. Of course its about wilw. Everything is. Show more

I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.

It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool. 1/x

The Bridge has improved a lot over the months. It allows Twitter users to find their friends on Mastodon.

If you have a Twitter account, consider using it at least once so when your Twitter friends discover Mastodon, they will easily find you here.

If you agree to link your Twitter and Mastodon account, see connecting at least once as a small contribution to the Mastodon community.

If you agree, retoot or post your own version.

I have a bunch of friends from Twitter joining Mastodon tonight so I made a quick guide to how the site works. Making it public so anyone can see/boost it if it's helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

I rebooted into windows to play some games but windows managed to piss me off so much already that I don’t think I’ll have energy to play anything.

Honestly, it’s quite remarkable that Microsoft managed to create a system so consistently bad for such a long time.

Any opinions about the new graphics cards? (Price aside)

@siracusa How do you guys see the chances of alternatives like Mastodon or micro.blog competing against Twitter and Facebook?

@brunoph Hi! I just realized that you can’t scrub through video in the Amaroq iPhone app. You can’t grab the scrubber. It tries to switch to the next photo/video (as if I was swiping on a picture).
