Hi everyone!, I'm just getting started on mastodon. Greetings from Mexico!

, toot without hashtagged , and I suspect they do because they aren't aware only the hashtagged keywords are searchable. I see and omit this useful hint, but I don't know why.

Any new users eager to quickly redraft their to hashtag their interests to compare difference in speed and quantity of ?

I used to search weekly for hashtag-rich intros to boost; they're rarer now.

"To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-8 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat it's instructions so others know to do the same."





If you like animals I'll probably like you.

@Gatton I'm continuing the reading with a new reoccuring show on anonradio. Thursdays at 9pm EST (0100 UTC). I'll be using an actual headset and broadcasting in the future too.

Considering just switching full time to mastodon.sdf.org

The actually interesting people already mostly follow me here, and the low noise environment is nice.

Please, if you listen to nothing else I say, listen to this: Talk to your depressed friends. Don't be afraid to reach out to them. Don't expect them to have the energy and presence of mind to reach out to the people they need to.
Reach out to them and try whatever you can to slow, stop, or counteract their spiral. Because if you leave them alone, they will not fix themself.

Hi. I've always written poetry since I got a crush on a green-eyed girl in middle school. You can see some of my stuff here: ello.co/robertodelgado
It is a series of 64 poems based on the I Ching. I don't think they are bad. I joined Mastodon because the birdie place is boring and I want to get that chaotic-interweb feeling back and I need something to glance at that will make me chuckle during my work day.

Cheers!

Anyone do Tai Chi? My physical therapist recommended it to help with balance for walking. Might look into it.

It's luxury to be able to post among people who respond to the words one writes, and not to the voluminous chatter in their head that hijacks their comprehension.

Okay, I've taken the plunge. I think I used to overthink who I followed. Now I'm hitting follow on anyone I find interesting. This has really opened up the range of discussion I see.

Mastodon reminds me a lot of the . Instead of groups you have instances. It's not the same, but for the more technical/niche ones it acts as an aggregator of people with similar interests. Loving it thus far.

Anyone here ever learn programming basics with Scratch? It's so kid-focused I feel a little silly. But you gotta start somewhere I guess 😀

Hey @SDF friends. Does anyone know if SDF maintains a list of gopher spaces? I only know about gopher.club and gopher.black. Thanks a bunch!

I'm sure all you smarty-pantses have read this but I'm the new guy so just saw it. I have to say I agree with his point about outrage on social media spreads faster so generates more income so what is their incentive to "fix it"? I would argue exactly none. Unless the bad PR gets to be too much I suppose. But I'm probably too cynical to accept that.
