Hey new mastodon users. A lot of us won't follow you back unless you have posted before and have an avatar. Otherwise you look like a bot.
So, if you're getting started try dropping an #introduction post in there first before you start clicking that "follow" button a bunch.
I'm seeing a few new people cautiously say things like "let's enjoy this place before the bad people get here" and I just want to say:
Don't worry! They're already here! But thanks to the heroic work of your instance moderators and admins, you will never see them. And if they do show up then your mods will get rid of them: unlike Twitter, the reporting functions here are reviewed by real people who don't care about turning a profit, and instead focus on enforcing community guidelines
hey friends- i have a little extra cash this month, decided to run some no questions asked microgrants for binders, since they were such a quality of life improvement for me before my top surgery.
here is a form with more info! send me a wishlist link!
