We're all horrified about the news out of the Supreme Court of the United States (#scotus) but please please use that cw feature and tag them #USPOL.

It's important to keep informed and to have conversations, but let's not turn the Fediverse into another place we're all doom scrolling.

Thank you.

I'm quickly running out of the Our Flag Means Death art I have done. Can't get these two out of my head. Mush mush mush. #ofmd #ourflagmeansdeath #ofmdfanart

And to just get this out there: I don't think people should be harassed, doxxed, or abused over writing fanfiction that I personally don't like and don't agree with.

In other words: I'm a self-proclaimed Pro shipper.
Pro- ie "in support of" shipping, in counter to "anti shipper".

I don't know who other authors are RL, what they've gone through, and no made up story and piece of fiction is worth attacking other people over.

ship and let ship

What's the recommended place for Mastodon sysadmins to get support these days?

@esdin If it's of any help, .art has a public block list, and since I took over as curator (and I think for a while before), it has public block reasons so you can see why we've fediblocked instances. (moderated servers link bottom left)

Fallen in love with this silly pirates hard, so here's more fanart. I did tiny studies of baroque dancer photos and paintings. #ofmd #ofmdfanart #ourflagmeansdeath

For those new to the Fediverse, hashtags that are nice to follow;

and for general writing posts.

Righto, here’s my fedi-tips:

- it’s slower here, less addictive than corp social media. This is a good thing, try and enjoy it.
- you see what you follow. No ads, no obscure reshuffling, no manipulating your emotions. Enjoy that too.
- please consider using CWs. Could it hurt, shock, upset, harm?
- please describe your pictures if you can
- give benefit of the doubt: text easily misleads
- shared something negative? Maybe follow with positive action.
- fash, queerphobes, bigots: fuck off 💚

If you just came here and don't know how to "fill your timeline", remember that besides following people with the same interests (there's plenty in #introduction / #introductions), you can enable the advanced web interface in your preferences.

Create your own "content columns" for every topic you're interested in!

Just pin the hashtags you want, even multiple in one column if you wish (like #cats & #dogs), or exlude some you don't want to see (like I did in the #art column in this screenshot).

Found posts. On one had kinda sad I wasn't fast enough to get in first post, but on other, glad to see the fandom thriving and continuing here.💜 😁

Texas lawmaker Matt Krause (R), made a Texas county remove award-winning books from shelves due to their content and terminated "access to over 17,000 digital books” from the local library system.

If you want, you can move your Mastodon account from one instance (server) to another.

Moving lets you take your followers, follows and some settings with you.

1. Create a new account on the instance you want to move to, but DO NOT delete the old account.

2. Log into your NEW account, go to Edit Profile > Moving From A Different Account, click on "create an account alias" and follow the instructions.

3. Log into your OLD account, go to Edit Profile > Move To A Different Account, click on "configure it here" and follow the instructions.

4. On your OLD account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Data Export and download the settings and follows lists.

5. On your NEW account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Import and upload the lists you just downloaded in the previous step.

After doing all these, your old account will redirect to the new one, and your followers will transfer automatically (with a short delay).
