I'm new here (hi!) - I would love to follow some people/interesting folks, but I need to know who they are. Please send me a note/mention or update your profile so I know who you are.

dealing with sensitive/explicit content 

If you're a writer or editor who deals with sensitive and explicit content and you're concerned about your personal and professional wellbeing, you may be interested in this. It's similar to supervision used by coaches, psychologists and other mental health professionals. Email me at admin[AT]reneeotmar.com.au

#public transport 

I've heard a few commuters say that the 'upside' to the pandemic has been that they've had an entire train carriage to themselves. This might be great for the individual, but the broader effect is worrying. Even at the best of times, PT providers cry poor because we don't have the numbers to justify system upgrades to the standards of, say, Japan - leaving aside that this is just BS, we do need more people on PT to keep them viable and to take more polluting cars off the roads.

Are all those emojis representations of white people? 😩 I can't seem to change a face or thumbs up to suit my own skin tone. 👇

NEWBIE QUESTION Could someone with technical nous please tell me whether (and how, in super simple terms) it's possible to create a closed community on Mastodon? I'm part of a closed group of ~1000 professionals (freelancers/consultants) on FB (Australia, New Zealand mostly); if we all left there could we recreate a similar environment here? Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone - I only joined yesterday but am loving it already. I have invited all my friends and a professional group I am part of on FB and IRL to come here and create a new community. Obviously, I'm bumbling around like a koala who's just been separated from her eucalyptus leaves... would you please offer some tips for friends who are ... a little challenged in the tech area? How to find one's way around and so forth? TIA
