Content Warning / CW 

Also it is a fabulous tool.

You can add them/remove them/change them on every toot.

You can make jokes.

You can give your toot context.

You can tell it is a thread, or where you are in a thread.

You can derail a thread and give the original poster a chance to not read your ramblings.

You can tell secrets, only interested people will hear.

Content Warning / CW 

Use them, use them a lot.

If you think about 'does this need a CW', then it does.

Things you dont want to show to your kids, your mom, your sister in law, they need CW.

Things that are a phobia, food, blood, body horror, heavy topic, politics, death, health related stuff, upsetting story, they need a CW.

This is also not a 'maybe'.
To keep the place nice, we all need to make an effort.
We need to be deliberate about giving people a chance to opt in on those topic.

Thanks

I think I did an a few years ago, during the great G+ Exodus, but I'm back now. I'm a old white guy, with some of the baggage that includes, though I try to be aware of what that means to people around me. I'm a ttrpg gamer started with B/X, and I've been all over the board since then, from White Wolf to GURPs, Fiasco to Champions, and many points in between. These days I love rules light and narrative systems, but I'll play pretty much anything but Pathfinder.

My first post here, so I wanted to present myself.

Hi, my name is Dimitri K (he/him), but you can find me in the internet as Dimitri, Dr. Givaca (the adorable cow/giraffe hybrid in my pfp).

I'm a portuguese geology student, but my social presence is mostly about me as a roleplayer and game designer. I play almost any game I can try, but am a passionate defender of One-Roll Engine and GM-less/full games.

I also write my own games and post in my blog about whatever comes to mind.

I've been playing D&D 5e for about 4 years, artificer is my main class when not DMing, and have been interesting in the Cyberpunk tabletop games and Warhammer more recently.

Olá!

I'm a fortyish English teacher and tabletop roleplayer from Portugal.

I'm really into tRPGs and have been playing since the mid-90s.

I'm also a founding member of a local tRPG community called "Roleplayers de Lisboa".

In the past I've designed a bunch of minimalistic tRPGs based on World of Dungeons and for years I have been developing "Heróis Modernos", a super-hero comic book creating game.

Here's hoping we can interact and even play together in the future!

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).

re: Notes on privacy 

None of the mods here have access to the database.
The 3rd party in charge of our infrastructure does have access to it, like they have access to the other 100s of instance they technically manage.

All of that to say that you can still have some expectation of privacy, but that privacy is nuanced by the need of efficient moderation tools.

If you need more robust, encrypted, alternative communication tool for DM like conversation, I would suggest you use signal

Notes on privacy 

Hi all,

I've seen a few toot like this : misskey.bubbletea.dev/notes/8z and I think it is worth clarifying.

The only person that can see your DMs on TTS are:
* the people you send it to.
* the admins of TTS when you report a DM you received.
* the admin of the other instance when a DM is reported and explicitly forwared on the report.
* the admins of TTS when someone reports and forward that report of your DM.
* The person that runs the infrastructure with their DB crendentials.
