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!

Does anybody know what is the best way to move the mastodon user on ubuntu to a mounted (online) volume so I can free some space on my storage? Move the user directory "mastodon" to the volume and set a hardlink? That's probably not possible. Sorry I am not that into to this topic.

My instance gets bigger and bigger... eventhough I delete remote cached media everyday. 🤔

Wow, my last toot was on 20th February. That is a long time. Should toot more about my sun which is my employer till next January. :D He can turn now from laying on the back to laying on his stomach. He is training very often so it should not take much long till he starts to crawl.

Wer mal abseits von Rassismus den Verfall der Menschheit bzw. Hass sehen möchte sollte sich mal das Drachengame rund um den Drachenlord anschauen.

Warum nur nimmt Hass so Ausmaße an?

Haunting of the Hillhouse is a real scary series.

The last minutes of the first episode scared the hell out of me. Don't make the mistake and watch it before you go to bed.
