Curate your goddamn experience.
You can filter out KeyWords, somewhere in yoru settings (I believe?)
You can mute accounts that are of no interest to you, like bot accounts etc.
@maloki I cant tell if this is a fancy way of asking me to boost this tweet or if you’re asking another thing entirely
Personal advice for new users: the best thing I ever did on Mastodon was to turn off notifications for boosts, favorites, and new followers.
At the top of your Notifications column, click the "sliders" icon on the right. You'll get an options menu where you can turn off desktop notifications, in-column notifications, and sounds for each of the different notification types.
You can see I've turned off everything but mentions. It's so relaxing. I don't have to care about "exposure" anymore!
mastodon privacy Show more
since this is coming up again, i feel it's important to stress the following facts about privacy on mastodon:
- DMs are stored in plaintext in the database
- yes, this means admins can access them
- it also means they will be accessible if your instance DB is leaked
- however: this is the same as the situation on any other mainstream social media site
- at the end of the day you should make sure you trust your admins
- ultimately: don't use mastodon for privacy-critical messages
Question for people who use/have used Role Gate:
How quick are games/sessions expected to go? Could a GM set an expectation of checking in a couple times a day, or an hour or so session per day/couple of days?
What's the culture like for that, or is that just something you set up with your players?
I'd love to set up a room for GUTS+, but I don't have much time to give to it every day...
