Pinned toot will never support hate speech. We will always come down hard on users who promote inequality, and de-federate with instances who are unwilling to say (and do) the same.

If you see one of our users violating these terms, file a report. Send me a message. (I'm on the lookout, of course, and.) The response will be as swift as I can make it.

This is the how-to I wish I had when I set up my Prosody XMPP server. I have no idea why in tarnation no search engine would show it to me.

Hi! I'm @thraeryn, the admin of I hope you'll be able to have real conversations and form real friendships with other Mastodon users here, both locally and in the wider fediverse.

If you see something, say something. Each and every toot has a "Report" feature. I hope users will be able to toot harassment-free, so I'll be watching.

hey fedizens (and especially niusers)! i built something!

it's a tool that can open a mastodon export archive and show you all of your toots and favorites (if they're available). it's still not perfect and needs substantial improvements, but i decided to publish it now, as niusers were asking questions about how to view export.

also i'll post updates at @meowViewer (report bugs there if you encounter them!). please boost! :boost_ok:

As ever the most important thing to focus on in transition is being happy in your self, in your body, in your skin. You started transitioning for your own happiness, and that should always be a through-line. You're not hurting the community by transitioning your body to where you need it to be. Be truthful and honest about what you want with yourself. When you reach that goal, you will be a hundred times stronger to help others in the community reach theirs.

sexually explicit morning 

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

I finally sat down to start re-making my Meal Lists.

I highly recommend this for kitchen-table #polyamory and anyone who was a lot of guests over regularly.

First, I make a list of all the foods each person won't/can't eat, with a heavy emphasis on medical and religious restrictions.

Second, I make a list of some of the foods each person prefers.

Third, I come up with three meals that 1) I will usually have the supplies for, 2) everyone can eat, 3) aren't spoon heavy.

Welcome @legion_lalwani to the Fediverse! :fire_friendly:

Feel free to make your profile your own—a lot of people put their pronouns in one of the available custom fields—then check out the (or ) hashtags! You might find some fun people to follow!

basically, don't use the fediverse for anything you wouldn't want coming up in a court of law, because it's not secure for that. It's just not a tool that's built for secure political organizing. There's ongoing discussion about potentially making it secure, but that doesn't have an easy solution for a bunch of technical reasons, so for now it's just not. Use Signal or another encrypted, secure chat app. Don't harbor any illusions that you can discuss anything seditious on here safely.

but at the same time, fuck cops, we should 100% be banning them from being on the fediverse, not because it will make our information more secure, but because fuck them, we don't want them around here. It's not a matter of infosec, but a matter of not wanting to associate with the bastards. Come back with a warrant or not at all, asshole.

Listen, I don't really care about Boba Fett's second cousin or whatever,


Disney+ has a Phineas and Ferb/Marvel crossover episode. So it's worth the free trial.

Protests are part of democracy, if you don't have them then you get authoritarian regimes.

C just invited me to lunch, and I ate a big breakfast 30 minutes ago. 😿

We'll likely go out to lunch tomorrow. 😸

hello fediverse! here's a list of things i know how to do, and that i want to do for people on here:

✅ installing (or teaching how to install) OSs on computers and phones
✅ custom mastodon themes
✅ digital art (esp portraits) and photography
✅ tarot readings
✅ basic cybersecurity assesments and tutorials

if you can afford to compensate me for my work with €€€, that'd be most welcome, but mostly i want to offer services to people who need it.


Children are people too 

sexually explicit morning 

So I work at a hotel that serves free breakfast and dinners (for guests*), though the dinners are only mon-thu.
If you're ever looking for a free meal, I'd recommend checking out if there are hotels near you that do the same. I'm going to reply with a few tips to keep in mind in case you're nervous/unsure how to pass as a guest.
1. Dressing how you would if you just woke up is fine. 100% normal. Some people get ready before breakfast, but tons don't.
