If you're posting something on Mastodon that may upset someone (such as upsetting news), it's a good idea to use a Content Warning (CW).

CWs hide the content of your post below the warning, but people can still read it by clicking "Show more". This lets people decide for themselves whether they are ready to read it right now.

-To add a content warning, click on the "CW" or ⚠️ button while you're writing the post, then describe the warning in the line above.

-You can open all the CWs in a thread at once by clicking the eye 👁️ icon in the top right corner.

-If you prefer, you can set your account to ignore these warnings and show all content automatically (on the website go to Preferences > Always expand posts marked with content warnings, tick the box and click "Save changes").

-If you want to avoid certain topics completely, and never want to read about them, use filters instead. These are available through the website at Preferences > Filters.

The best thing about today is that it’s not too hot, not too cold. The worst thing about today is that I didn’t get to eat any porridge this morning. All up I’m calling that a win.

Covid test came back negative so I can get on flight to US. But I want to hang out here some more 😥

I'm experimenting with doing occasional long-form blog posts about how to make your own online services.

I've done an initial post about how to make your own Mastodon server using managed hosting providers. If you have time, it would be great to hear feedback about it.

Sydney is my heart city and it knows it. This weather is 😘!

He's trying to hide his excitement for the official pixelfed mobile app!

Fuck video “documentation” and write a goddamn user manual

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

She did not help me win Catan last night but it was so good to see her in the fur. My sweet Toffee 😍

I've come to the strong opinion that the true value the software/games/internet holds is community,

All efforts to recenter these things around money have just made them alarmingly worse.

I notice so many new things having been away for a few years. Totally not helpful things, just stuff like awnings I’d never seen before and hoses in the botanical gardens etc.
