tips for newcomers
follow, boost and fave all you like! we don't care about follow ratios and faves are private. go hog wild!
boosting your own posts is 100% ok. no shame. the TL is chronological, so there's no algorithm to fight.
please do use CWs. if in doubt, use one just to be safe.
hashtags are your friends and really the only effective way to search for posts. be sure to use them to maximize your reach.
don't be afraid to engage. dumping pictures is fine but stay and chat a bit too!
We have added language to the mastodon.technology Code of Conduct to prohibit fascism and fascist-sympathizing from our instance. We will also not federate with instances who choose to federate with fascist instances. Let @ashfurrow know if you have any questions.

ICANN granted Amazon.com the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.
Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.
